MANAGEMENT COMMENTARY

"In addition to our recent industrial sale-leaseback activity, we've been focused on building our pipeline of capital investment projects and further strengthening our balance sheet," said Jason Fox, Chief Executive Officer of W. P. Carey. "By efficiently raising equity through our ATM, issuing unsecured debt and pro-actively pulling forward debt maturities, we've enhanced our credit profile and ensured we're well-positioned for growth in a range of economic environments."

 

QUARTERLY FINANCIAL RESULTS

Revenues

  • Total Company: Revenues, including reimbursable costs, for the 2019 third quarter totaled $318.0 million, up 51.9% from $209.4 million for the 2018 third quarter.
     
  • Real Estate: Real Estate revenues, including reimbursable costs, for the 2019 third quarter were $302.8 million, up 68.9% from $179.3 million for the 2018 third quarter, due primarily to additional lease revenues from properties acquired in the Company's merger with CPA:17 on October 31, 2018 (the CPA:17 Merger) and net acquisitions. Lease termination income and other revenue for the 2019 third quarter included $8.3 million in proceeds from a bankruptcy claim on a prior tenant and the collection of $3.3 million in past-due rents resulting from the restructuring of certain leases on properties acquired in the CPA:17 Merger.

    Note: While it has no impact on net income or AFFO, in accordance with Accounting Standards Update 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which the Company has adopted effective as of January 1, 2019, operating expenses reimbursed by tenants are included within lease revenues on the consolidated statements of income (for both current and prior year periods). Prior to that date the Company presented revenues excluding reimbursable costs.
     
  • Investment Management: Investment Management revenues, including reimbursable costs, for the 2019 third quarter were $15.3 million, down 49.2% from $30.1 million for the 2018 third quarter, due primarily to the cessation of asset management revenue previously earned from CPA:17, as well as lower structuring and other advisory revenues.

Net Income Attributable to W. P. Carey

  • Net income attributable to W. P. Carey for the 2019 third quarter was $41.3 million, down 46.6% from $77.3 million for the 2018 third quarter. Net income from Investment Management attributable to W. P. Carey decreased, due primarily to the cessation of Investment Management revenues and distributions previously earned from CPA:17. Net income from Real Estate attributable to W. P. Carey also decreased, due primarily to impairment charges totaling $25.8 million and loss on extinguishment of debt totaling $10.6 million recognized during the current period, partly offset by the impact of properties acquired in the CPA:17 Merger and net acquisitions, as well as proceeds recognized during the 2019 third quarter from a bankruptcy claim on a prior tenant. The increase in revenues from properties acquired in the CPA:17 Merger and acquisitions was partly offset by corresponding increases in depreciation and amortization, interest expense and property expenses.

Adjusted Funds from Operations (AFFO)

  • AFFO for the 2019 third quarter was $1.30 per diluted share, down 12.2% from $1.48 per diluted share for the 2018 third quarter. AFFO from the Company's Real Estate segment (Real Estate AFFO) increased, due primarily to the accretive impact of properties acquired in the CPA:17 Merger and net acquisitions, as well as higher lease termination income and other revenue, partly offset by the dilutive impact of shares issued through our ATM program. AFFO from the Company's Investment Management segment declined, due primarily to the cessation of Investment Management revenues and distributions previously earned from CPA:17.

    Note: Further information concerning AFFO and Real Estate AFFO, which are both non-GAAP supplemental performance metrics, is presented in the accompanying tables and related notes.

Dividend

  • As previously announced, on September 19, 2019 the Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $1.036 per share, equivalent to an annualized dividend rate of $4.144 per share. The dividend was paid on October 15, 2019 to stockholders of record as of September 30, 2019.

 

AFFO GUIDANCE

  • For the 2019 full year, the Company has lowered and narrowed its AFFO guidance range and currently expects to report total AFFO of between $4.95 and $5.01 per diluted share, including Real Estate AFFO of between $4.70 and $4.76 per diluted share, based on the following revised key assumptions:

    (i)   investments for the Company's Real Estate portfolio of between $750 million and $1 billion;

    (ii)   dispositions from the Company's Real Estate portfolio of between $375 million and $550 million; and

    (iii)  total general and administrative expenses of between $76 million and $79 million.

    Note: The Company does not provide guidance on net income. The Company only provides guidance on total AFFO (and Real Estate AFFO) and does not provide a reconciliation of this forward-looking non-GAAP guidance to net income due to the inherent difficulty in quantifying certain items necessary to provide such reconciliation as a result of their unknown effect, timing and potential significance. Examples of such items include impairments of assets, gains and losses from sales of assets and depreciation and amortization from new acquisitions.

 

BALANCE SHEET AND CAPITALIZATION

Bond Issuance

  • On September 19, 2019, the Company completed an underwritten public offering of €500 million aggregate principal amount of 1.350% Senior Unsecured Notes due April 15, 2028. Net proceeds from the offering were used primarily to reduce amounts outstanding under the Company's unsecured revolving credit facility and to repay mortgage debt.

"At-The-Market" (ATM) Programs

  • During the 2019 third quarter, the Company issued 1,502,572 shares of common stock under its ATM programs at a weighted-average price of $88.76 per share, for net proceeds of $131.4 million.
     
  • This activity brought issuances under the Company's ATM programs during the first nine months of 2019 to 6,672,412 shares of common stock, at a weighted-average price of $79.70 per share, for net proceeds of $523.5 million.

Mortgage / Secured Debt Prepayment

  • During the 2019 third quarter, the Company prepaid mortgage debt totaling $379.5 million, with a weighted-average interest rate of approximately 4.6%.
     
  • This activity brought mortgage debt prepaid during the first nine months of 2019 to $872.8 million, with a weighted-average interest rate of approximately 4.9%.

Composition

  • As of September 30, 2019, the Company's net lease portfolio consisted of 1,204 properties, comprising 137.5 million square feet leased to 324 tenants, with a weighted-average lease term of 10.3 years and an occupancy rate of 98.4%. In addition, the Company owned 19 self-storage and two hotel operating properties, totaling approximately 1.6 million square feet.

 

INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT

  • W. P. Carey is the advisor to CPA:18 – Global (CPA:18), Carey Watermark Investors Incorporated (CWI 1), Carey Watermark Investors 2 Incorporated (CWI 2) and Carey European Student Housing Fund I, L.P. (CESH) (collectively, the Managed Programs). As of September 30, 2019, the Managed Programs had total assets under management of approximately $7.6 billion.

Proposed Merger of CWI 1 and CWI 2 and Management Internalization

  • On October 22, 2019, CWI 1 and CWI 2 announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement under which the two companies intend to merge in an all-stock transaction with CWI 2 as the surviving entity. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2020, subject to the approval of stockholders of each of CWI 1 and CWI 2, among other conditions.
     
  • In connection with the merger, W. P. Carey has entered into an internalization agreement and transition services agreement with CWI 1 and CWI 2. Immediately following the closing of the merger:
     
    (i)   the advisory agreements between a subsidiary of W. P. Carey and each of CWI 1 and CWI 2 and each of their respective operating partnerships will terminate;
     
    (ii)   the operating partnerships of each of CWI 1 and CWI 2 will redeem the special general partnership interest that certain subsidiaries of W. P. Carey currently hold, for which W. P. Carey will receive approximately $97 million in consideration, comprised of $65 million in shares of CWI 2 preferred stock and 2,840,549 shares in CWI 2 common stock valued at approximately $32 million;
     
    (iii)  CWI 2 will internalize the management services currently provided by a subsidiary of W. P. Carey; and
     
    (iv)  W. P. Carey and its affiliates will provide certain transition services to CWI 2 at cost for, what is currently expected to be, a period of approximately 12 months from the closing of the proposed merger between CWI 1 and CWI 2.
     
  • Upon completion of the proposed merger, the Company expects the contribution from its Investment Management segment to be reduced to approximately 2% of total AFFO on an annualized basis.

(a) 

The subadvisors for CWI 1, CWI 2 and CPA:18 (for multi-family properties) earn a percentage of gross fees recorded, which we account for as an expense and are recorded as Subadvisor fees in our consolidated statements of income. The amounts paid to the subadvisors are the differences between gross and net fees. During 2018, CPA:18 sold five of its six multi-family properties (it sold the remaining multi-family property in January 2019 and we terminated the related subadvisory agreements). Refer to the Managed Programs Fee Summary section in Exhibit 99.2 of the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on November 1, 2019 for further information.

(b) 

Amounts are primarily comprised of costs incurred in connection with the CPA:17 Merger.

(c) 

Amount for the three months ended September 30, 2019 is primarily comprised of realized gains on foreign currency exchange derivatives of $4.9 million, loss on extinguishment of debt of $(10.6) million, interest earned from cash in bank and on loans to affiliates of $1.1 million and net losses on foreign currency transactions of $(7.6) million.

(d) 

Amounts for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 represent a loss recognized on the purchase of the remaining interest in an investment from CPA:17 in the CPA:17 Merger, which we had previously accounted for under the equity method. We recognized this loss because we identified certain measurement period adjustments during the third quarter of 2019 that impacted the provisional accounting for this investment.

__________

(a) 

Amounts for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 represent a loss recognized on the purchase of the remaining interest in a real estate investment from CPA:17 in the CPA:17 Merger, which we had previously accounted for under the equity method. We recognized this loss because we identified certain measurement period adjustments during the third quarter of 2019 that impacted the provisional accounting for this investment.

(b) 

Equity income, including amounts that are not typically recognized for FFO and AFFO, is recognized within Equity in earnings of equity method investments in the Managed Programs and real estate on the consolidated statements of income. This represents adjustments to equity income to reflect FFO and AFFO on a pro rata basis.

(c) 

Adjustments disclosed elsewhere in this reconciliation are on a consolidated basis. This adjustment reflects our FFO or AFFO on a pro rata basis.

(d) 

FFO and AFFO are non-GAAP measures. See below for a description of FFO and AFFO.

(e) 

AFFO amount for the three months ended September 30, 2019 is primarily comprised of unrealized losses on derivatives of $(0.4) million, losses from foreign currency movements of $(7.6) million and loss on extinguishment of debt of $(10.6) million. Real Estate AFFO amount for the three months ended September 30, 2019 is primarily comprised of unrealized losses on derivatives of $(0.4) million, losses from foreign currency movements of $(7.5) million and loss on extinguishment of debt of $(10.6) million. Beginning in the second quarter of 2019, we aggregated (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt and realized (gains) losses on foreign currency (both of which were previously disclosed as separate AFFO adjustment line items), as well as certain other adjustments, within this line item, which is comprised of adjustments related to Other gains and (losses) on our consolidated statements of income. Prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.

(f) 

Amount for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 includes a current tax benefit, which is excluded from AFFO as it was incurred as a result of the CPA:17 Merger.

(g) 

Amounts are primarily comprised of costs incurred in connection with the CPA:17 Merger.

 

 

Non-GAAP Financial Disclosure

Funds from Operations (FFO) and Adjusted Funds from Operations (AFFO)

Due to certain unique operating characteristics of real estate companies, as discussed below, the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. (NAREIT), an industry trade group, has promulgated a non-GAAP measure known as FFO, which we believe to be an appropriate supplemental measure, when used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP, to reflect the operating performance of a REIT. The use of FFO is recommended by the REIT industry as a supplemental non-GAAP measure. FFO is not equivalent to, nor a substitute for, net income or loss as determined under GAAP.

We define FFO, a non-GAAP measure, consistent with the standards established by the White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of NAREIT, as restated in December 2018. The White Paper defines FFO as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains or losses from sales of property, impairment charges on real estate, gains or losses on changes in control of interests in real estate and depreciation and amortization from real estate assets; and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and jointly owned investments. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and jointly owned investments are calculated to reflect FFO.

We also modify the NAREIT computation of FFO to adjust GAAP net income for certain non-cash charges, such as amortization of real estate-related intangibles, deferred income tax benefits and expenses, straight-line rents, stock-based compensation, non-cash environmental accretion expense and amortization of deferred financing costs. Our assessment of our operations is focused on long-term sustainability and not on such non-cash items, which may cause short-term fluctuations in net income but have no impact on cash flows. Additionally, we exclude non-core income and expenses, such as gains or losses from extinguishment of debt, restructuring and related compensation expenses and merger and acquisition expenses. We also exclude realized and unrealized gains/losses on foreign currency exchange transactions (other than those realized on the settlement of foreign currency derivatives), which are not considered fundamental attributes of our business plan and do not affect our overall long-term operating performance. We refer to our modified definition of FFO as AFFO. We exclude these items from GAAP net income to arrive at AFFO as they are not the primary drivers in our decision-making process and excluding these items provides investors a view of our portfolio performance over time and makes it more comparable to other REITs that are currently not engaged in acquisitions, mergers and restructuring, which are not part of our normal business operations. AFFO also reflects adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and jointly owned investments. We use AFFO as one measure of our operating performance when we formulate corporate goals, evaluate the effectiveness of our strategies and determine executive compensation.

We believe that AFFO is a useful supplemental measure for investors to consider as we believe it will help them to better assess the sustainability of our operating performance without the potentially distorting impact of these short-term fluctuations. However, there are limits on the usefulness of AFFO to investors. For example, impairment charges and unrealized foreign currency losses that we exclude may become actual realized losses upon the ultimate disposition of the properties in the form of lower cash proceeds or other considerations. We use our FFO and AFFO measures as supplemental financial measures of operating performance. We do not use our FFO and AFFO measures as, nor should they be considered to be, alternatives to net income computed under GAAP, or as alternatives to net cash provided by operating activities computed under GAAP, or as indicators of our ability to fund our cash needs.
