/EIN News/ -- SUMMARY OF Q2-2018 RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Strong Operating Results Supported by Strong Market Fundamentals

  • NOI margin increased to 65.0% and 63.0% for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018 respectively due to higher monthly rents and lower vacancies, utilities and wages

Continued Fair Value Increases in our Investment Properties

  • Debt to Gross Book Value (“GBV”) reduced to 40.53% as at June 30, 2018 from 43.57% at December 31, 2017, due to increases in fair value of investment properties

The rate of growth in AMR has been impacted by (i) the strong rental markets of British Columbia and Ontario offset by strategically reduced rents in Alberta and Nova Scotia to increase occupancy, (ii) a higher rental guideline increase in Ontario and British Columbia for 2018 of 1.8% and 4.0% respectively, compared to the permitted guideline increases of 1.5% and 3.7% respectively in 2017, and (iii) increases due to above guideline increases (“AGI”) achieved in Ontario.

Suite turnovers in the residential suite portfolio (excluding co-ownerships and the Netherlands properties) for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018 resulted in AMR increasing by approximately $123 or 10.5% and $117 or 10.1%, respectively, compared to an increase of approximately $66 or 5.9% and $57 or 5.1% for the same periods last year, primarily due to the strong rental markets of British Columbia and Ontario, offset by strategically reduced rents in the Alberta and Nova Scotia rental market to increase occupancy.

Estimated Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate

CAPREIT’s annualized net rental revenue run-rate as at June 30, 2018 grew to $653.3 million, up 9.0% from $599.1 million as at June 30, 2017, primarily due to acquisitions completed within the last twelve months and strong increases in AMR on properties owned prior to June 30, 2017. Net rental revenue run-rate net of dispositions for the twelve months ended June 30, 2018 was $623.9 million (June 30, 2017 – $583.6 million).

Operating Revenues

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, total operating revenues increased by 8.6% and 8.3%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year, due to the contribution from acquisitions, increased same property monthly rents, and continuing higher occupancies.

Operating Expenses

Overall operating expenses as a percentage of operating revenues reduced to 35.0% and 37.0% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to 37.2% and 39.1% in the prior year, respectively, mainly as a result of lower utilities due to reduced electricity rates, reduced consumption, positive impacts of energy saving initiatives and sub-metering, and lower operating expenses due to lower wages and R&M as a percentage of operating revenues.

NOI Margin

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, the NOI margin on the total portfolio were 65.0% and 63.0%, respectively, compared to 62.8% and 60.9% for the same periods last year. The increase in the NOI margin is due to (i) higher monthly rents on stabilized basis, (ii) lower vacancies, (iii) lower utilities cost, and (iv) lower wages.

NON-IFRS FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE

For the six months ended June 30, 2018, basic NFFO per Unit increased by 11.2% compared to the prior year period despite the approximate 4.2% increase in the weighted average number of Units outstanding, due primarily to strong organic NOI growth and contributions from acquisitions. For the three months ended June 30, 2018, basic NFFO per Unit increased by 14.1% compared to the same period last year despite a 5.9% increase in the weighted average number of Units outstanding due to the equity offering completed in March 2018.

PROPERTY CAPITAL INVESTMENTS

During the six months ended June 30, 2018, CAPREIT made property capital investments (excluding head office assets) of $67.7 million compared to $73.7 million in the same period last year. Management expects CAPREIT to complete property capital investments (excluding development and intensification) of approximately $197 million to $207 million in 2018.

Property capital investments include suite improvements, common areas and equipment, which generally tend to increase NOI more quickly. CAPREIT also continues to invest in environment-friendly energy-saving initiatives, including high-efficiency boilers, energy-efficient lighting systems and water-saving programs, which have permitted CAPREIT to mitigate potential increases in utility and R&M costs and has improved overall portfolio NOI.

SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

On August 7, 2018, CAPREIT completed the acquisition of a brand new luxury property consisting of 90 suites located in Langley, BC. The purchase price (excluding transaction costs) of approximately $33.0 million was financed with the assumption of an existing $21.1 million mortgage with a remaining term of approximately 8.8 years bearing an interest rate of 2.56% and the remaining with CAPREIT’s Acquisition and Operating credit facility.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

CAPREIT prepares and releases unaudited consolidated interim financial statements and audited consolidated annual financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS. In this and other earnings releases and investor conference calls, as a complement to results provided in accordance with IFRS, CAPREIT also discloses and discusses certain financial measures not recognized under IFRS and that do not have standard meanings prescribed by IFRS. These include stabilized net rental income (“Stabilized NOI”), Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate, Funds From Operations (“FFO”), Normalized Funds From Operations (“NFFO”), and Adjusted Cash Flow from Operations (“ACFO”), and applicable per Unit amounts and payout ratios (collectively, the “Non-IFRS Measures”). These Non-IFRS Measures are further defined and discussed in the MD&A released on August 10, 2018, which should be read in conjunction with this press release. Since Stabilized NOI, Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate, FFO, NFFO, and ACFO are not measures recognized under IFRS, they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other issuers. CAPREIT has presented the Non-IFRS measures because Management believes these Non-IFRS measures are relevant measures of the ability of CAPREIT to earn revenue and to evaluate CAPREIT’s performance and cash flows. A reconciliation of Net Income and these Non-IFRS measures is included in this press release below. The Non-IFRS measures should not be construed as alternatives to net income (loss) or cash flows from operating activities determined in accordance with IFRS as indicators of CAPREIT’s performance or sustainability of our distributions.
