Camden disposed of two joint venture apartment communities during the quarter for a total of $65.6 million: Camden Braun Station, a 240-home community in San Antonio, TX, and Camden Piney Point, a 318-home community in Houston, TX.

Construction also continued at Camden Southline in Charlotte, NC, a $48 million joint venture project with 266 apartment homes.

During the quarter Camden acquired 2.9 acres of land in Houston, TX for $15.6 million for the future development of a two-phased apartment community. Subsequent to quarter-end, the Company acquired 7.6 acres of land in Montgomery County, MD for $23.8 million for the future development of an apartment community.

Earnings Guidance

Camden maintained its FFO earnings guidance for 2014 based on its current and expected views of the apartment market and general economic conditions. Full-year 2014 FFO is expected to be $4.10 to $4.30 per diluted share, and full-year 2014 EPS is now expected to be $1.48 to $1.68 per diluted share. Second quarter 2014 earnings guidance is $1.02 to $1.06 per diluted share for FFO and $0.37 to $0.41 per diluted share for EPS. Guidance for EPS excludes future gains on real estate transactions.

The Company’s 2014 earnings guidance is based on projections of same property revenue growth between 3.5% and 4.5%, expense growth between 3.25% and 4.25%, and NOI growth between 3.25% and 5.25%.

Camden intends to update its earnings guidance to the market on a quarterly basis. Additional information on the Company’s 2014 financial outlook and a reconciliation of expected net income attributable to common shareholders to expected FFO are included in the financial tables accompanying this press release.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

 

DEFINITIONS & RECONCILIATIONS
(In thousands, except per share amounts)
                   
 
 
(Unaudited)
 

This document contains certain non-GAAP financial measures management believes are useful in evaluating an equity REIT's performance. Camden's definitions and calculations of non-GAAP financial measures may differ from those used by other REITs, and thus may not be comparable. The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indication of our operating performance, or to net cash provided by operating activities as a measure of our liquidity.
 
 

FFO

The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) currently defines FFO as net income attributable to common shares computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), excluding gains or losses from depreciable operating property sales, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Camden’s definition of diluted FFO also assumes conversion of all dilutive convertible securities, including minority interests, which are convertible into common equity. The Company considers FFO to be an appropriate supplemental measure of operating performance because, by excluding gains or losses on dispositions of operating properties and excluding depreciation, FFO can help one compare the operating performance of a company's real estate between periods or as compared to different companies. A reconciliation of net income attributable to common shareholders to FFO is provided below:

Expected FFO

Expected FFO is calculated in a method consistent with historical FFO, and is considered an appropriate supplemental measure of expected operating performance when compared to expected net income attributable to common shareholders (EPS). A reconciliation of the ranges provided for expected net income attributable to common shareholders per diluted share to expected FFO per diluted share is provided below:

Net Operating Income (NOI)

NOI is defined by the Company as total property income less property operating and maintenance expenses less real estate taxes. The Company considers NOI to be an appropriate supplemental measure of operating performance to net income attributable to common shareholders because it reflects the operating performance of our communities without allocation of corporate level property management overhead or general and administrative costs.

EBITDA

EBITDA is defined by the Company as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, including net operating income from discontinued operations, excluding equity in (income) loss of joint ventures, (gain) loss on sale of unconsolidated joint venture interests, gain on acquisition of controlling interest in joint ventures, gain on sale of discontinued operations, net of tax, and income (loss) allocated to non-controlling interests. The Company considers EBITDA to be an appropriate supplemental measure of operating performance to net income attributable to common shareholders because it represents income before non-cash depreciation and the cost of debt, and excludes gains or losses from property dispositions.
