Post Properties Announces Second Quarter 2012 Earnings

Post Properties, Inc. (NYSE: PPS) announced today net income available to common shareholders of $20.2 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $8.8 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2011.

Net income available to common shareholders for the six months ended June 30, 2012, was $41.0 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, compared to net income of $8.4 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

The Company’s net income available to common shareholders for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 included other income of $0.9 million relating primarily to a construction litigation settlement, and for the six months ended June 30, 2012 included a gain of $6.1 million on the sale of an asset. The Company’s net income available to common shareholders for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 included a $0.4 million gain on the sale of a technology investment and for the six months ended June 30, 2011 included $1.8 million of costs associated with the redemption of preferred stock.

Funds From Operations

The Company uses the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) definition of Funds from Operations (“FFO”) as an operating measure of the Company’s financial performance. A reconciliation of FFO to GAAP net income is included in the financial data (Table 1) accompanying this press release.

FFO for the second quarter of 2012 was $39.7 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, compared to $27.7 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2011. The Company’s reported FFO for the second quarter of 2012 included the other income discussed above, of $0.9 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, and for the second quarter of 2011 included the technology sale gain of $0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share.

FFO for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $73.9 million, or $1.37 per diluted share, compared to $46.0 million, or $0.92 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2011. The Company’s reported FFO for the first half of 2012 included the $0.9 million of other income discussed above, or $0.02 per diluted share. The Company’s reported FFO for the first half of 2011 included costs related to the redemption of preferred stock, offset by the technology sale gain discussed above, totaling a net reduction to FFO of $1.3 million, or $0.03 per diluted share.

Said Dave Stockert, Post’s CEO, “We are very pleased to deliver another strong quarter of nearly 30% growth in per share core funds from operations. We sustained a solid pace of year-over-year and sequential growth in revenues from our apartment communities, and achieved an outsized number of condominium closings. As a result, we’ve again adjusted earnings guidance for the full year. In July, we added another high-quality community to the Post portfolio, and are off to a good start leasing up our first new development delivery of this current cycle.”

Same Store Community Data

Average economic occupancy at the Company’s 50 same store communities, containing 18,114 apartment units, was 96.1% and 95.1% for the second quarter of 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Total revenues for the same store communities increased 7.8% and total operating expenses increased 3.9% during the second quarter of 2012, compared to the second quarter of 2011, resulting in a 10.4% increase in same store net operating income (“NOI”). The average monthly rental rate per unit increased 6.5% during the second quarter of 2012, compared to the second quarter of 2011.

On a sequential basis, total revenues for the same store communities increased 2.5% and total operating expenses increased 2.4%, producing a 2.5% increase in same store NOI for the second quarter of 2012, compared to the first quarter of 2012. On a sequential basis, the average monthly rental rate per unit increased 1.6%. For the second quarter of 2012, average economic occupancy at the same store communities was 96.1%, compared to 95.8% for the first quarter of 2012.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, average economic occupancy at the Company’s mature communities was 96.0%, compared to 95.0% for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

Total revenues for the mature communities increased 7.8% and total operating expenses increased 3.5% during the first half of 2012, compared to the first half of 2011, resulting in a 10.7% increase in same store NOI. The average monthly rental rate per unit increased 6.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to the six months ended June 30, 2011.

Same store NOI is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of same store NOI to the comparable GAAP financial measure is included in the financial data (Table 2) accompanying this press release. Information on same store NOI and average rental rate per unit by geographic market is also included in the financial data (Table 3) accompanying this press release.

Development Activity

During the second quarter of 2012, the Company began delivering units at the second phase of its Post Carlyle Square™ community in Washington, D.C. The Company also reduced the estimated total cost of the project by $6.0 million. As of July 27, 2012, this community was 20% leased.

In the aggregate, the Company has 1,810 units in six apartment communities, and approximately 37,567 square feet of retail space, under development or in lease-up with a total estimated cost of $300.4 million. The Company currently expects to fund future estimated construction expenditures primarily by utilizing available borrowings under its unsecured bank credit facilities as well as proceeds from its on-going condominium sales and its at-the-market common equity sales program.

Acquisition Activity

As previously announced in July, the Company acquired Post South End™, a 360-unit apartment community located in Charlotte, North Carolina for a purchase price of $74.0 million. This community was completed in 2009 and also includes approximately 7,612 square feet of retail space.

Financing Activity

Leverage, Line and Term Loan Capacity

Total debt and preferred equity as a percentage of undepreciated real estate assets (adjusted for joint venture partners’ share of real estate assets and debt) was 35.7% at June 30, 2012.

On May 31, 2012, the Company borrowed an additional $130 million under its unsecured bank term loan facility. On June 1, 2012, the Company repaid in full its $95.7 million of outstanding 5.45% senior unsecured notes. On July 2, 2012, the Company borrowed the remaining $70 million of available capacity under the term loan, bringing total outstanding borrowings under the term loan facility to $300 million.

As of July 27, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $38.7 million. The Company had no outstanding borrowings and had letters of credit totaling $0.6 million under its combined $330 million unsecured lines of credit.

Computations of debt ratios and reconciliations of the ratios to the appropriate GAAP measures in the Company’s financial statements are included in the financial data (Table 4) accompanying this press release.

At-the-Market Common Equity Activity

The Company’s initial at-the-market common equity program provides for the sale of up to 4 million shares of common stock, of which 136,500 shares remain available for issuance as of July 27, 2012. Upon that program’s completion, the Company also has available a second at-the-market common equity program that provides for the sale of up to an additional 4 million shares of common stock. The Company expects to use these programs as an additional source of capital and liquidity, to maintain the strength of its balance sheet and to fund its planned investment activities. Sales under these programs will be dependent upon a variety of factors, including, among others, market conditions, the trading price of the Company’s common stock and the potential use of proceeds.

During the second quarter of 2012, the Company sold 96,500 shares under the initial program, at an average gross price of $50.23 per share, producing net proceeds of $4.6 million. Since its inception, the Company has sold 3,863,500 shares, at an average gross price per share of $41.14, producing net proceeds of $155.4 million.

Condominium Activity

During the second quarter of 2012, the Company closed 26 condominium units at its Austin and Atlanta condominium projects for aggregate gross revenue of $22.9 million. As of July 27, 2012, the Company has, in the aggregate, closed 164 units at the Austin and Atlanta condominium projects and had 24 units under contract. There can be no assurance that condominium units under contract will close.

The Company recognized net gains in FFO of $8.5 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, from condominium sales activities during the second quarter of 2012, compared to $5.4 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, during the second quarter of 2011.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Defined Terms

The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures and other defined terms in this press release and in its Supplemental Financial Data available on the Company’s website. The non-GAAP financial measures include FFO, Adjusted Funds from Operations (“AFFO”), net operating income, same store capital expenditures, and certain debt statistics and ratios. The definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures are summarized below and on page 19 of the Supplemental Financial Data. The Company believes that these measures are helpful to investors in measuring financial performance and/or liquidity and comparing such performance and/or liquidity to other REITs.

Funds from Operations – The Company uses FFO as an operating measure. The Company uses the NAREIT definition of FFO. FFO is defined by NAREIT to mean net income (loss) available to common shareholders determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from extraordinary items and sales of depreciable operating property, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, and after adjustment for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures all determined on a consistent basis in accordance with GAAP. FFO presented in the Company’s press release and Supplemental Financial Data is not necessarily comparable to FFO presented by other real estate companies because not all real estate companies use the same definition. The Company’s FFO is comparable to the FFO of real estate companies that use the current NAREIT definition.

Accounting for real estate assets using historical cost accounting under GAAP assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. NAREIT stated in its April 2002 White Paper on Funds from Operations that “since real estate asset values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors have considered presentations of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by themselves.” As a result, the concept of FFO was created by NAREIT for the REIT industry to provide an alternate measure. Since the Company agrees with the concept of FFO and appreciates the reasons surrounding its creation, the Company believes that FFO is an important supplemental measure of operating performance. In addition, since most equity REITs provide FFO information to the investment community, the Company believes that FFO is a useful supplemental measure for comparing the Company’s results to those of other equity REITs. The Company believes that the line on its consolidated statement of operations entitled “net income available to common shareholders” is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to FFO.

Adjusted Funds From Operations – The Company also uses adjusted funds from operations (“AFFO”) as an operating measure. AFFO is defined as FFO less operating capital expenditures and after adjusting for the impact of non-cash straight-line, long-term ground lease expense, non-cash impairment charges, debt extinguishment gains (losses) and preferred stock redemption costs. The Company believes that AFFO is an important supplemental measure of operating performance for an equity REIT because it provides investors with an indication of the REIT’s ability to fund its operating capital expenditures through earnings. In addition, since most equity REITs provide AFFO information to the investment community, the Company believes that AFFO is a useful supplemental measure for comparing the Company to other equity REITs. The Company believes that the line on its consolidated statement of operations entitled “net income available to common shareholders” is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to AFFO.

Property Net Operating Income (“NOI”) – The Company uses property NOI, including same store NOI and same store NOI by market, as an operating measure. NOI is defined as rental and other revenues from real estate operations less total property and maintenance expenses from real estate operations (exclusive of depreciation and amortization). The Company believes that NOI is an important supplemental measure of operating performance for a REIT’s operating real estate because it provides a measure of the core operations, rather than factoring in depreciation and amortization, financing costs and general and administrative expenses generally incurred at the corporate level. This measure is particularly useful, in the opinion of the Company, in evaluating the performance of geographic operations, same store groupings and individual properties. Additionally, the Company believes that NOI, as defined, is a widely accepted measure of comparative operating performance in the real estate investment community. The Company believes that the line on its consolidated statement of operations entitled “net income” is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to NOI.

Same Store Capital Expenditures – The Company uses same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures as cash flow measures. Same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures are important indicators of the costs incurred by the Company in maintaining its same store communities on an ongoing basis. The corresponding GAAP measures include information with respect to the Company’s other operating segments consisting of communities stabilized in the prior year, lease-up communities, rehabilitation properties, sold properties and commercial properties in addition to same store information. Therefore, the Company believes that the Company’s presentation of same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures is necessary to demonstrate same store replacement costs over time. The Company believes that the most directly comparable GAAP measure to same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures is the line on the Company’s consolidated statements of cash flows entitled “property capital expenditures,” which also includes revenue generating capital expenditures.

Debt Statistics and Debt Ratios – The Company uses a number of debt statistics and ratios as supplemental measures of liquidity. The numerator and/or the denominator of certain of these statistics and/or ratios include non-GAAP financial measures that have been reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. These debt statistics and ratios include: (1) interest coverage ratios; (2) fixed charge coverage ratios; (3) total debt as a percentage of undepreciated real estate assets (adjusted for joint venture partner’s share of debt); (4) total debt plus preferred equity as a percentage of undepreciated real estate assets (adjusted for joint venture partner’s share of debt); (5) a ratio of consolidated debt to total assets; (6) a ratio of secured debt to total assets; (7) a ratio of total unencumbered assets to unsecured debt; (8) a ratio of consolidated income available for debt service to annual debt service charge; and (9) a debt to annualized income available for debt service ratio. A number of these debt statistics and ratios are derived from covenants found in the Company’s debt agreements, including, among others, the Company’s senior unsecured notes. In addition, the Company presents these measures because the degree of leverage could affect the Company’s ability to obtain additional financing for working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions, development or other general corporate purposes. The Company uses these measures internally as an indicator of liquidity, and the Company believes that these measures are also utilized by the investment and analyst communities to better understand the Company’s liquidity.

The Company uses income available for debt service to calculate certain debt ratios and statistics. Income available for debt service is defined as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, gains on sales of real estate assets, non-cash impairment charges and other non-cash income and expenses. Income available for debt service is a supplemental measure of operating performance that does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or cash flow from operating activities as determined under GAAP, and the Company’s calculation thereof may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other companies, including EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA.

Property Operating Statistics – The Company uses average economic occupancy, gross turnover, net turnover and percentage increases in rent for new and renewed leases as statistical measures of property operating performance. The Company defines average economic occupancy as gross potential rent less vacancy losses, model expenses and bad debt expenses divided by gross potential rent for the period, expressed as a percentage. Gross turnover is defined as the percentage of leases expiring during the period that are not renewed by the existing residents. Net turnover is defined as gross turnover decreased by the percentage of expiring leases where the residents transfer to a new apartment unit in the same community or in another Post® community. The percentage increases in rent for new and renewed leases are calculated using the respective new or renewed rental rate as of the date of a new lease, as compared with the previous rental rate on that same unit.
