DCT Industrial Trust Inc.® Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

DCT Industrial Trust Inc. ® (NYSE: DCT), a leading industrial real estate company, today announced financial results for the quarter ending June 30, 2013.

“We had another successful quarter executing our strategy. Our operating performance is ahead of plan and we completed a number of excellent acquisitions,” said Phil Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer of DCT Industrial. “We are making outstanding progress in our development program. Leasing is ahead of schedule and we continue to grow our pipeline through our recent land acquisitions. Further, I am very pleased with our market teams’ success in acquiring quality assets at attractive returns and selling lower growth, non-strategic buildings. We are reducing the number of markets in which we operate, as well as improving the quality and growth potential of our portfolio.”

Funds from Operations, as adjusted, attributable to common stockholders and unitholders (“FFO”) for Q2 2013 totaled $33.6 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared with $27.8 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for Q2 2012. These results exclude $0.8 million and $0.6 million of acquisition costs for the quarters ending June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Net income attributable to common stockholders for Q2 2013 was $10.8 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared with a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $15.8 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, reported for Q2 2012.

Property Results and Leasing Activity

Net operating income (“NOI”) was $51.7 million in Q2 2013, compared with $43.5 million in Q2 2012. In Q2 2013, same-store NOI, excluding revenue from lease terminations, increased 4.0 percent on a cash basis and 1.9 percent on a GAAP basis, when compared to the same period of 2012. Same-store occupancy ended the quarter at 92.1 percent and averaged 91.5 percent in Q2 2013, with average occupancy increasing 130 basis points over Q2 2012.

In Q2 2013, the Company signed leases totaling 4.4 million square feet. Rental rates on signed leases increased 3.7 percent on a GAAP basis and decreased 3.8 percent on a cash basis compared to the corresponding expiring leases. Over the previous four quarters, rental rates on signed leases increased 7.4 percent on a GAAP basis and decreased 0.5 percent on a cash basis. The Company’s tenant retention rate for the quarter was 67.1 percent.

As of June 30, 2013, DCT Industrial owned 405 consolidated operating properties, totaling 61.3 million square feet, with occupancy of 91.9 percent down from 92.7 percent as of March 31, 2013 and up 160 basis points from June 30, 2012. On a same-portfolio basis, occupancy remained flat; however, the impact of acquisitions and dispositions brought occupancy down 80 basis points. In addition, 625,000 square feet, or 1.0 percent, was leased but not yet occupied as of June 30.

Investment Activity

Acquisitions

In Q2 2013, DCT Industrial acquired six buildings for $74.3 million. These acquisitions total 1.8 million square feet and were 90.8 percent occupied at the time of closing. The Company expects a year-one weighted-average cash yield of 5.5 percent and a weighted-average projected stabilized cash yield of 6.8 percent on these assets.

The table below summarizes Q2 2013 acquisitions:

Building B is a 99,000 square foot speculative building that is being constructed concurrently with Building A.

Dispositions

In Q2 2013, the Company completed the disposition of a 13 building portfolio in San Antonio, exiting the market. Additionally, in late July, DCT Industrial disposed of two buildings in Dallas.

Financial Measures

Net operating income (“NOI”) is defined as rental revenues, including expense reimbursements, less rental expenses and real estate taxes, which excludes institutional capital management fees, depreciation, amortization, casualty gains, impairment, general and administrative expenses, equity in (earnings) loss of unconsolidated joint ventures, interest expense, interest and other income and income tax expense and other taxes. We consider NOI to be an appropriate supplemental performance measure because it reflects the operating performance of our properties and excludes certain items that are not considered to be controllable in connection with the management of the property such as depreciation, amortization, impairment, general and administrative expenses, interest income and interest expense. Additionally, lease termination revenue is excluded as it is not considered to be indicative of recurring operating income. However those measures should not be viewed as alternative measures of our financial performance since they exclude expenses which could materially impact our results of operations. Further, our NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies, as they may use different methodologies for calculating NOI, same store NOI (excluding revenue from lease terminations), and cash basis same store NOI (excluding revenue from lease terminations). Therefore, we believe net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, as defined by GAAP, to be the most appropriate measure to evaluate our overall financial performance.

DCT Industrial believes that net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, as defined by GAAP, is the most appropriate earnings measure. However, DCT Industrial considers Funds from Operations (“FFO”), as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), to be a useful supplemental, non-GAAP measure of DCT Industrial’s operating performance. NAREIT developed FFO as a relative measure of performance of an equity REIT in order to recognize that the value of income-producing real estate historically has not depreciated on the basis determined under GAAP. FFO is generally defined as net income attributable to common stockholders, calculated in accordance with GAAP, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization, less gains from dispositions of operating real estate held for investment purposes, plus impairment losses on depreciable real estate and impairments of in substance real estate investments in investees that are driven by measurable decreases in the fair value of the depreciable real estate held by the unconsolidated joint ventures and adjustments to derive DCT Industrial’s pro rata share of FFO of unconsolidated joint ventures. We exclude gains and losses on business combinations and include the gains or losses from dispositions of properties which were acquired or developed with the intention to sell or contribute to an investment fund in our definition of FFO. Although the NAREIT definition of FFO predates the guidance for accounting for gains and losses on business combinations, we believe that excluding such gains and losses is consistent with the key objective of FFO as a performance measure. We also present FFO excluding severance, acquisition costs, debt modification costs and impairment losses on properties which are not depreciable. We believe that FFO excluding severance, acquisition costs, debt modification costs and impairment losses on non-depreciable real estate is useful supplemental information regarding our operating performance as it provides a more meaningful and consistent comparison of our operating performance and allows investors to more easily compare our operating results. Readers should note that FFO captures neither the changes in the value of DCT Industrial’s properties that result from use or market conditions, nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of DCT Industrial’s properties, all of which have real economic effect and could materially impact DCT Industrial’s results from operations. NAREIT’s definition of FFO is subject to interpretation, and modifications to the NAREIT definition of FFO are common. Accordingly, DCT Industrial’s FFO may not be comparable to other REITs’ FFO and FFO should be considered only as a supplement to net income (loss) as a measure of DCT Industrial’s performance.

DCT Industrial calculates our fixed charge coverage calculation based on adjusted EBITDA, which represents net loss attributable to DCT common stockholders before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense, noncontrolling interest, impairment losses and excludes non-FFO gains and losses on disposed assets and business combinations. We use adjusted EBITDA to measure our operating performance and to provide investors relevant and useful information because it allows fixed income investors to view income from our operations on an unleveraged basis before the effects of non-cash items, such as depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation expense, and irregular items, such as non-FFO gains or losses from the dispositions of real estate, impairment losses and gains and losses on business combinations.

Forward-Looking Statements

We make statements in this document that are considered “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, which are usually identified by the use of words such as “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “may,” “plans,” “projects,” “seeks,” “should,” “will,” and variations of such words or similar expressions and includes statements regarding our anticipated yields. We intend these forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and are including this statement for purposes of complying with those safe harbor provisions. These forward-looking statements reflect our current views about our plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects, which are based on the information currently available to us and on assumptions we have made. Although we believe that our plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects as reflected in or suggested by those forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give no assurance that the plans, intentions, expectations or strategies will be attained or achieved. Furthermore, actual results may differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements and will be affected by a variety of risks and factors that are beyond our control including, without limitation: national, international, regional and local economic conditions, including, in particular, the impact of the strength of the United States economic recovery and the potential impact of the financial crisis in Europe; the general level of interest rates and the availability of capital; the competitive environment in which we operate; real estate risks, including fluctuations in real estate values and the general economic climate in local markets and competition for tenants in such markets; decreased rental rates or increasing vacancy rates; defaults on or non-renewal of leases by tenants; acquisition and development risks, including failure of such acquisitions and development projects to perform in accordance with projections; the timing of acquisitions, dispositions and developments; natural disasters such as fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes; energy costs; the terms of governmental regulations that affect us and interpretations of those regulations, including the costs of compliance with those regulations, changes in real estate and zoning laws and increases in real property tax rates; financing risks, including the risk that our cash flows from operations may be insufficient to meet required payments of principal, interest and other commitments; lack of or insufficient amounts of insurance; litigation, including costs associated with prosecuting or defending claims and any adverse outcomes; the consequences of future terrorist attacks or civil unrest; environmental liabilities, including costs, fines or penalties that may be incurred due to necessary remediation of contamination of properties presently owned or previously owned by us; and other risks and uncertainties detailed in the section of our Form 10-K filed with the SEC and updated on Form 10-Q entitled “Risk Factors.” In addition, our current and continuing qualification as a real estate investment trust, or REIT, involves the application of highly technical and complex provisions of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, or the Code, and depends on our ability to meet the various requirements imposed by the Code through actual operating results, distribution levels and diversity of stock ownership. We assume no obligation to update publicly any forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
