Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Brandywine Realty Trust Results for Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 and Increases Its 2013 FFO Guidance to $1.41 to $1.48 per Diluted Share16:15 EST Wednesday, February 06, 2013RADNOR, Pa., Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE: BDN), a real estate investment trust focused on the ownership, management and development of urban town center and suburban office properties in the mid-Atlantic region and other select markets throughout the United States, today reported its financial and operating results for the three and twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2012.  "We finished 2012 with accelerated activity and outstanding results on our operations, investments and balance sheet management," stated Gerard H. Sweeney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Brandywine Realty Trust.   "We met or exceeded every one of our operating targets with 2.9% same store NOI growth, 2.8% rental rate mark-to-market, 66% tenant retention and just $2.61 per square foot per lease year of capital costs, and we ended 2012 at 88% occupied and 90% leased. Capital recycling enhanced our portfolio quality and growth profile through $176 million of sales, $78 million of acquisitions and $77 million of joint venture investments.  We took advantage of attractive interest rates and issued $250 million of 10-year 3.95% unsecured notes at year-end and used the net proceeds and other sources to prepay mortgages and shorter term unsecured debt thereby improving our credit metrics, mitigating interest rate risk and lengthening our maturities.  2013 is off to an excellent start with a growing list of executed leases and a large pipeline of interest from new and existing tenants, not to mention a series of important development and sales transactions.  As such, and reflecting all of these elements, we are raising our FFO guidance for 2013 to a range of $1.41 to $1.48 per diluted share from the prior range of $1.38 to $1.46."Financial Highlights ? Fourth QuarterNet loss allocated to common shares totaled ($30.8 million) or ($0.21) per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to a net loss of ($6.4 million) or ($0.05) per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011.  We incurred $27.1 million of total costs related to capital market and other transactions in the fourth quarter of 2012 versus $2.6 million of comparable costs in the fourth quarter of 2011. Adjusted for the aforementioned $27.1 million of costs related to capital market and other transactions, our core Funds from Operations available to common shares and units (FFO) in the fourth quarter of 2012 totaled $48.2 million or $0.33 per diluted share versus $50.0 million or $0.34 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011 when we had $2.6 million of comparable adjustments.  Our fourth quarter 2012 core FFO payout ratio ($0.15 common share distribution / $0.33 core FFO per diluted share) was 45.5%.  FFO per the NAREIT definition totaled $21.1 million or $0.14 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $47.4 million or $0.32 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011.  In the fourth quarter of 2012, we incurred $13.8 million of revenue maintaining capital expenditures which along with other adjustments to FFO, resulted in $27.9 million or $0.19 per diluted share of Cash Available for Distribution (CAD) versus $24.6 million or $0.17 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011 when we incurred $20.2 million of revenue maintaining capital expenditures.  Our fourth quarter 2012 CAD payout ratio was 78.9% ($0.15 common share distribution / $0.19 CAD per diluted share). Financial Highlights ? Full Year 2012Net loss allocated to common shares totaled ($8.2 million) or ($0.06) per diluted share in 2012 compared to a net loss of ($13.0 million) or ($0.10) per diluted share in 2011.  We incurred $30.7 million of total costs related to capital market and other transactions in 2012 versus $3.8 million of comparable costs in 2011. Adjusted for the aforementioned $30.7 million of costs related to capital market and other transactions, our core FFO available to common shares and units in 2012 totaled $201.3 million or $1.37 per diluted share versus $207.2 million or $1.42 per diluted share in 2011 when we had $3.8 million of comparable adjustments. Our 2012 core FFO payout ratio was 43.8% ($0.60 common share distribution / $1.37 FFO per share). FFO per the NAREIT definition totaled $170.5 million or $1.16 per diluted share in 2012 compared to $203.4 million or $1.39 per diluted share in 2011.  In 2012, we incurred $48.3 million of revenue maintaining capital expenditures which along with other adjustments to FFO, resulted in $116.6 million of CAD or $0.80 per diluted share compared to $81.7 million of CAD or $0.57 per diluted share for 2011 when we incurred $94.6 million of revenue maintaining capital expenditures.  Our CAD payout ratio for 2012 was 75.0% ($0.60 common share distribution / $0.80 CAD per diluted share). Portfolio HighlightsIn the fourth quarter of 2012, our net operating income (NOI) excluding termination revenues and other income items increased 4.7% on a GAAP basis and 4.5% on a cash basis for our 216 same store properties, which were 88.2% and 86.7% occupied on December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.  In 2012 overall, our net operating income (NOI) excluding termination revenues and other income items increased 2.9% on a GAAP basis and 1.8% on a cash basis. During the fourth quarter of 2012, we commenced occupancy on 723,194 square feet of total leasing activity including 248,157 square feet of renewals, 422,313 square feet of new leases and 52,724 square feet of tenant expansions.  We have an additional 508,965 square feet of executed new leasing scheduled to commence subsequent to December 31, 2012. During the fourth quarter of 2012, we achieved a 74.2% tenant retention ratio in our core portfolio with positive net absorption of 317,730 square feet.  During the fourth quarter of 2012, we experienced no change on our renewal rental rates and a 5.6% increase on our new lease/expansion rental rates, both on a GAAP basis.  For all of 2012, we achieved a 66.2% tenant retention ratio and positive net absorption of 284,870 square feet. At December 31, 2012, our core portfolio of 217 properties comprising 24.2 million square feet was 88.3% occupied and 90.3% leased (reflecting new leases commencing after December 31, 2012).Investment HighlightsDuring the fourth quarter of 2012, as previously disclosed, we completed (1) the $34.8 million acquisition of 1900 Market Street, a 76.3% occupied, 456,922 square foot office building located in the central business district of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania which we plan to redevelop over the next few years, (2) the $32.1 million acquisition of 7000 West at Lantana, a 100% occupied, 136,075 square foot, two-building, Class A office complex located in the southwest submarket of Austin, Texas, and (3) the $2.1 million acquisition of a ten-acre parcel of land adjacent to our 2291 Wood Oak Drive building in Herndon, Virginia (see our February 1, 2013 press release for additional details). Subsequent to year-end, as previously disclosed, we (1) entered into a definitive agreement to sell Princeton Pike Corporate Center, an eight-building, 800,546 square foot office park located in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, for $121.0 million with closing expected in the first quarter of 2013 and up to a $5.2 million gain on sale, (2)  funded the remaining $5.9 million of our $25.0 million aggregate 25% investment in One and Two Commerce Square, a 92.9% occupied, 1.9 million square foot, two-building, Class A office complex located in the central business district of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania controlled by affiliates of the Thomas Properties Group Inc., and (3) entered into a joint venture as a 30% partner with Campus Crest Communities, Inc. (30%) and Harrison Street Real Estate Capital (40%) to develop The Grove at Cira Centre South, a 33-story, 850-bed student housing tower in the University City submarket of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Development of The Grove at Cira Centre South is projected to cost $158.5 million and will be financed from an executed $97.8 million construction loan with the balance funded pro rata by the partners.  Construction has commenced with a targeted completion in September 2014 (see our February 1, 2013 and February 5, 2013 press releases for additional details). We are continuing with the $18.5 million redevelopment of 660 West Germantown Pike, a 154,392 square foot office building located in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania that we acquired vacant in the first quarter of 2012 for $9.1 million.  We have funded $14.3 million to date and plan to fund the remaining $4.2 million as we complete the lease-up of this redevelopment.  As of December 31, 2012, the property was 58.2% occupied and 77.5% leased.  We are also proceeding with our Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania multi-family 50/50 joint venture with Toll Brothers and expect to commence construction of 398 units in the second quarter of 2013 with a total cost of $77.0 million of which $31.0 million has already been funded pro rata by the partners.Capital Markets HighlightsAt December 31, 2012, our net debt to gross assets measured 45.2% and we had $69.0 million outstanding on our $600.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility.  Following the closing of the aforementioned Princeton Pike sale transaction later in the first quarter of 2013, we expect to have no outstanding balance on our $600.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility.  For the quarter ended December 31, 2012, we achieved a 2.5 EBITDA to interest coverage ratio and a 7.5 ratio of net debt to annualized quarterly EBITDA based on consolidated EBITDA excluding certain capital market and transactional items, and inclusive of our pro rata share of unconsolidated EBITDA, interest and net debt. During the fourth quarter of 2012, as previously disclosed, we completed (1) a $250.0 million 3.95% ten-year unsecured note offering due February 15, 2023, generating net proceeds of $246.1 million, (2) the tender for a total of $149.9 million of our unsecured notes maturing in 2015 and 2016, (3) the optional redemption of all 2.3 million of our 7.375% Series D Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares with a total outlay of $58.3 million, comprising the $57.5 million par redemption plus $0.8 million of distributions for this partial period, (4) the repayment of $150.0 million of our $250.0 million unsecured bank term loan due February 1, 2016, and the termination of the associated interest rate hedging contracts, (5) the pre-payment of the $54.9 million balance on a series of mortgage loans comprising our 7.25% Newtown Square/Berwyn Park/Libertyview secured financing, (6) the pre-payment of the $1.1 million balance on our 7.75% Southpoint III mortgage loan, and (7) the redemption of 811,984 limited partnership units from the estate of a former unit holder for total cash consideration of $9.7 million, reflecting a calculated price of $12.00 per unit.  In the aggregate, we recognized in our results for the fourth quarter of 2012 a total of $26.6 million of cash costs and accelerated deferred charges related to the preferred share redemption, unsecured note tenders, early debt repayments and termination of interest rate hedge contracts (see our February 1, 2013 press release for additional details).DistributionsOn December 11, 2012, our Board of Trustees declared a quarterly dividend distribution of $0.15 per common share that was paid on January 18, 2013 to shareholders of record as of January 4, 2013.  Our Board also declared a quarterly dividend distribution of $0.43125 for each 6.90% Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Share that was paid on January 15, 2013 to holders of record as of December 30, 2012.  As previously disclosed, we redeemed all of our outstanding 7.375% Series D Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares on December 28, 2012 on which date each share received the $25.00 redemption price plus $0.36875 of accumulated and unpaid dividends.2013 Earnings and FFO GuidanceBased on current plans and assumptions and subject to the risks and uncertainties more fully described in our Securities and Exchange Commission filings, we are revising our previously issued guidance for full year 2013 FFO per diluted share to be in a range of $1.41 to $1.48 versus the prior range of $1.38 to $1.46. This guidance is provided for informational purposes and is subject to change.  The following is a reconciliation of the calculation of 2013 FFO per diluted share and earnings per diluted share:Guidance for 2013                        Range or ValueEarnings (loss) per diluted share allocated to common shareholders $(0.03)to$ 0.04Plus:  real estate depreciation and amortization 1.441.44FFO per diluted share $ 1.41to $ 1.48Our 2013 FFO guidance does not include income arising from the sale of undepreciated real estate.  Our 2013 earnings and FFO per diluted share each reflect $0.08 per diluted share of non-cash income attributable to the third of five annual recognitions of 20% of the net benefit of the rehabilitation tax credit financing on the 30th Street Post Office.  Other key assumptions include occupancy improving to 90% by year-end 2013 with 92% leased, a 3.0% ? 5.0% increase (GAAP) in overall lease rates, a resulting 3.0% ? 5.0% increase in 2013 same store NOI (GAAP), no capital markets activity, $100.0 million of additional sales activity beyond the pending $121.0 million Princeton Pike sale, no acquisition activity and 146.7 million fully diluted weighted average shares.  Non-GAAP Supplemental Financial MeasuresWe compute our financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  Although FFO, NOI and CAD are non-GAAP financial measures, we believe that FFO, NOI and CAD calculations are helpful to shareholders and potential investors and are widely recognized measures of real estate investment trust performance.  At the end of this press release, we have provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure.Funds from Operations (FFO) and Core FFOWe compute FFO in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), which may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not compute FFO in accordance with the NAREIT definition, or that interpret the NAREIT definition differently than us.  NAREIT defines FFO as net income (loss) before non-controlling interests and excluding gains (losses) on sales of depreciable operating property, impairment losses on depreciable consolidated real estate, impairment losses on investments in unconsolidated real estate ventures and extraordinary items (computed in accordance with GAAP); plus real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs), and after similar adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures.  Net income, the GAAP measure that we believe to be most directly comparable to FFO, includes depreciation and amortization expenses, gains or losses on property sales, extraordinary items and non-controlling interests.  To facilitate a clear understanding of our historical operating results, FFO should be examined in conjunction with net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as presented in the financial statements included elsewhere in this release.  FFO does not represent cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) and should not be considered to be an alternative to net income (loss) (determined in accordance with GAAP) as an indication of our financial performance or to be an alternative to cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available for our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions to shareholders.  We also provide a calculation of core FFO in which we adjust NAREIT FFO for certain capital market and transactional items.Net Operating Income (NOI)NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure equal to net income available to common shareholders, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, plus corporate general and administrative expense, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, non-controlling interests and losses from early extinguishment of debt, less interest income, development and management income, gains from property dispositions, gains on sale from discontinued operations, gains on early extinguishment of debt, income from discontinued operations, income from unconsolidated joint ventures and non-controlling interests.  In some cases, we also present NOI on a cash basis, which is NOI after eliminating the effect of straight-lining of rent and deferred market intangible amortization.  NOI presented by us may not be comparable to NOI reported by other REITs that define NOI differently.  NOI should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of our performance, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity or ability to make cash distributions to shareholders.Cash Available for Distribution (CAD)CAD is a non-GAAP financial measure that is not intended as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as determined under GAAP.  CAD is presented solely as a supplemental disclosure with respect to liquidity because we believe it provides useful information regarding our ability to fund our distributions.  Because other companies do not necessarily calculate CAD the same way as we do, our presentation of CAD may not be comparable to similarly titled measures provided by other companies.  Revenue Maintaining Capital ExpendituresRevenue maintaining capital expenditures, a non-GAAP financial measure, are a component of our CAD calculation and represent the portion of capital expenditures required to maintain our current level of funds available for distribution.  Revenue maintaining capital expenditures include current tenant improvement and allowance expenditures for all tenant spaces that have been owned for at least one year, and that were not vacant during the twelve-month period prior to the date that the tenant improvement or allowance expenditure was incurred.  Revenue maintaining capital expenditures also include other expenditures intended to maintain our current revenue base.  Accordingly, we exclude capital expenditures related to development and redevelopment projects, as well as certain projects at our core properties that are intended to attract prospective tenants in order to increase revenues and/or occupancy rates.Fourth Quarter Earnings Call and Supplemental Information PackageWe will host a conference call on Thursday, February 7, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. EST.  The conference call can be accessed by calling 1-800-683-1525 and referencing conference ID #75720698.  Beginning two hours after the conference call, a taped replay of the call can be accessed 24 hours a day through Thursday, February 21, 2013 by calling 1-855-859-2056 and providing access code #75720698.  In addition, the conference call can be accessed via a webcast located on our website at www.brandywinerealty.com.We have prepared a supplemental information package that includes financial results and operational statistics related to the fourth quarter earnings report.  The supplemental information package is available in the "Investor Relations ?
