Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT II, Inc. Second Quarter 2019 Results

TAMPA, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT II, Inc., or the Company, a public, non-traded real estate investment trust focused on net-leased data center and healthcare properties, announced operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Quarter Ended June 30, 2019 Highlights

  • Net income attributable to common stockholders totaled $6.3 million.
  • Net operating income, or NOI, totaled $36.8 million.
  • Funds from operations, or FFO, attributable to common stockholders equaled $21.9 million.
  • Modified funds from operations, or MFFO, attributable to common stockholders equaled $17.9 million.
  • During the three months ended June 30, 2019, the Company repurchased approximately 1.2 million shares of common stock for approximately $10.8 million, or an average of $9.25 per share.
  • On April 11, 2019, the Company announced it had entered into a definitive agreement to merge with Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT, Inc., or REIT I. The Company subsequently filed an amended registration statement on Form S-4, declared effective by the SEC on July 16, 2019, that constitutes a prospectus of the Company and also includes a proxy statement of REIT I. See further discussion in “Merger Transaction” section below.

Michael Seton, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and President, stated, “We are pleased to announce an increase of revenue, FFO, and MFFO in the quarter as compared to the prior year’s second quarter as a result of strategic property acquisitions. Although top line growth and key metrics remain strong, net income was impacted by a tenant that experienced financial difficulties. As a result, we terminated the lease and are working diligently to re-lease the property.”

An explanation of FFO, MFFO, NOI and Tenant Reimbursements as well as reconciliations of such non-GAAP financial measures, which should not be considered alternatives to GAAP measures, to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures, is included at the end of this release.

Quarter Ended June 30, 2019, Compared to Quarter Ended June 30, 2018

  • Net income attributable to common stockholders was $6.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to $7.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, or a 13% decrease. The decrease was primarily attributable to unpaid rent related to a tenant who was experiencing financial difficulties and whose lease was terminated on June 25, 2019.

  • MFFO attributable to common stockholders was $17.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, an increase of 5%, compared to $17.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Operating Results

Quarter Ended June 30, 2019, Compared to Quarter Ended June 30, 2018

Use of Non-GAAP Information

Net operating income, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as total revenues, less rental expenses, which excludes depreciation and amortization, general and administrative expenses, asset management fees and interest and other expense, net. The Company believes that net operating income serves as a useful supplement to net income because it allows investors and management to measure unlevered property-level operating results and to compare operating results to the operating results of other real estate companies between periods on a consistent basis. Net operating income should not be considered as an alternative to net income determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of financial performance, and accordingly, the Company believes that in order to facilitate a clear understanding of the consolidated historical operating results, net operating income should be examined in conjunction with net income as presented in the condensed consolidated financial statements and data included on the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on August 14, 2019.

The following are reconciliations of net income attributable to common stockholders, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, to net operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 (amounts in thousands):

The Company generates almost all of the net operating income from property operations. In order to evaluate the overall portfolio, management analyzes the net operating income of same store properties. The Company defines “same store properties” as operating properties that were owned and operated for the entirety of both calendar periods being compared and excludes properties under development. By evaluating the property net operating income of the same store properties, management is able to monitor the operations of the Company’s existing properties for comparable periods to measure the performance of the current portfolio and determine the effects of new acquisitions on net income.

One of the Company’s objectives is to provide cash distributions to its stockholders from cash generated by the Company’s operations. The purchase of real estate assets and real estate-related investments, and the corresponding expenses associated with that process, is a key operational feature of the Company’s business plan in order to generate cash from operations. Due to certain unique operating characteristics of real estate companies, the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, an industry trade group, has promulgated a measure known as FFO which the Company believes is an appropriate supplemental measure to reflect the operating performance of a REIT. The use of FFO is recommended by the REIT industry as a supplemental performance measure. FFO is not equivalent to the Company’s net income as determined under GAAP.

The Company defines FFO, consistent with NAREIT’s definition, as net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property and asset impairment write-downs, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures will be calculated to reflect FFO on the same basis.

The Company, along with others in the real estate industry, consider FFO to be an appropriate supplemental measure of a REIT’s operating performance because it is based on a net income analysis of property portfolio performance that excludes non-cash items such as depreciation and amortization and asset impairment write-downs, which the Company believes provides a more complete understanding of its performance to investors and to its management, and when compared year over year, reflects the impact on the Company’s operations from trends in occupancy.

Publicly registered, non-listed REITs, such as the Company, typically have a significant amount of acquisition activity and are substantially more dynamic during their initial years of investment and operations. While other start-up entities may also experience significant acquisition activity during their initial years, the Company believes that publicly registered, non-listed REITs, like the Company, are unique in that they have a limited life with targeted exit strategies within a relatively limited time frame after the acquisition activity ceases. The Company will use cash flows from operations and debt financings to acquire real estate assets and real estate-related investments, and the Company’s board of directors will determine to pursue a liquidity event when it believes that the then-current market conditions are favorable; however, the Company’s board of directors does not anticipate evaluating a liquidity event (i.e., listing of its shares of common stock on a national securities exchange, a sale, the sale of all or substantially all of its assets, or another similar transaction) until five to seven years after the termination of the primary offering of the Company’s initial public offering, which is generally comparable to other publicly registered, non-listed REITs. Thus, the Company does not intend to continuously purchase real estate assets and intends to have a limited life. Due to these factors and other unique features of publicly registered, non-listed REITs, the Institute for Portfolio Alternatives, or the IPA, has standardized a measure known as modified funds from operations, or MFFO, which the Company believes to be another appropriate supplemental measure to reflect the operating performance of a publicly registered, non-listed REIT. MFFO is a metric used by management to evaluate sustainable performance and dividend policy. MFFO is not equivalent to the Company’s net income as determined under GAAP.

The Company defines MFFO, a non-GAAP measure, consistent with the IPA’s definition in its Practice Guideline: FFO further adjusted for the following items included in the determination of GAAP net income; acquisition fees and expenses; amounts related to straight-line rental income and amortization of above and below intangible lease assets and liabilities; accretion of discounts and amortization of premiums on debt investments; mark-to-market adjustments included in net income; nonrecurring gains or losses included in net income from the extinguishment or sale of debt, hedges, foreign exchange, derivatives or securities holdings where trading of such holdings is not a fundamental attribute of the business plan, unrealized gains or losses resulting from consolidation from, or deconsolidation to, equity accounting, adjustments related to contingent purchase price obligations where such adjustments have been included in the derivation of GAAP net income, and after adjustments for a consolidated and unconsolidated partnership and joint ventures, with such adjustments calculated to reflect MFFO on the same basis.
