Allied Announces Third-Quarter Results – EIN Presswire

TORONTO, Oct. 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Allied Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (“Allied”) (TSX: “AP.UN”) today announced results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2022. “Allied’s third-quarter operations were encouraging, especially in the context of growing macro-economic uncertainty,” said Michael Emory, President & CEO. “Average in-place net rent per occupied square foot in our rental portfolio rose to $25.56, up 3.8% from the comparable quarter last year and 1.1% from the second quarter. For us, this is a key operating metric with respect to the productive capacity of our rental portfolio and bodes well for our future.”

Financial Results

Allied’s third-quarter financial results were in-line with its internal forecast and with external expectations. FFO per unit was 60.6 cents, down 2.9% from the comparable quarter last year and identical to the second quarter. AFFO per unit was 52.6 cents, up 1.3% from the comparable quarter last year and down 3.1% from the second quarter. NAV per unit at quarter-end was $51.10, down slightly from the end of the second quarter due to a decline in value in Allied’s Calgary portfolio. The financial results are summarized below:

(1) This measure is presented on an IFRS basis.
(2) This is a non-IFRS measure. Refer to the Non-IFRS Measures section below and on page 21 of the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Condition (the “MD&A“) as at September 30, 2022.
(3) For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, Allied incurred $nil and $nil, respectively, (September 30, 2021 – $37,728 and $51,889, respectively) of financing prepayment costs in connection with the favourable refinancing of unsecured debentures and first mortgages.
(4) Prior to Q4 2021, the comparative figures for investment properties, total assets, and rental revenue were reported on a proportionate share basis. The comparative figures for the prior period have been revised to an IFRS basis.
(5) Prior to Q4 2021, the comparative figure for net income excluding fair value adjustments, financing prepayment costs and impairment was calculated on a proportionate share basis. The comparative figure for the prior period has been revised to be calculated on an IFRS basis.
(6) Net asset value per unit (“NAV per unit”) is calculated as follows: total equity as at the corresponding period ended, (per the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets) divided by the actual number of Units and class B limited partnership units of Allied Properties Exchangeable Limited Partnership (“Exchangeable LP Units”) outstanding at period end.

Leasing Results and Highlights

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, Allied leased 56.9% of the GLA covered by expiring leases, with an average increase in net rent per square foot of 7.5%. Combined with new leasing activity, this gave rise to the lease metrics set out in the table below:

  Q3 2022 Q2 2022 Change % Change
Leased area   90.7%     90.9%     (0.2%)    
Occupied area   89.6%     89.5%     0.1%    
Average in-place net rent per occupied square foot $ 25.56   $ 25.29   $ 0.27   1.1 %

Given the scale of Allied’s rental portfolio, upgrade activity is now constant in all markets, particularly Montréal, Toronto and Vancouver. The goal of the upgrade activity is to serve users better and to boost net rent per occupied square foot over time. At the end of the third quarter, Allied’s rental portfolio was comprised of (i) 14,407,984 square feet of GLA in buildings that are largely stabilized and (ii) 559,741 square feet of GLA in buildings that are undergoing active upgrade. The occupied area of the former was 90.2%, with leased area at 91.4%. The occupied area of the latter was 74.6%, with leased area at 74.6%.

Allocation of Capital

Allied is focusing on completing the developments in its pipeline, which Management expects will add approximately $82 million to annual EBITDA over the next few years. This alone will improve Allied’s relatively strong debt-metrics in an organic manner.

Outlook

Allied’s internal forecast for 2022 calls for low-to-mid-single-digit percentage growth in each of same-asset NOI, FFO per unit and AFFO per unit. Allied does not forecast NAV per unit growth in any given time period.

Allied continues to have deep confidence in, and commitment to, its strategy of consolidating and intensifying distinctive urban workspace and network-dense UDCs in Canada’s major cities. Allied firmly believes that its strategy is underpinned by the most important secular trends in Canadian and global real estate. Allied also firmly believes that it has the properties, the financial strength, the people and the platform necessary to execute its strategy for the ongoing benefit of its Unitholders and other constituents.

Non-IFRS Measures
Management uses financial measures based on International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) and non-IFRS measures to assess Allied’s performance. Non-IFRS measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS, and therefore, should not be construed as alternatives to net income or cash flow from operating activities calculated in accordance with IFRS. Refer to the Non-IFRS Measures section on page 17 of the MD&A as at September 30, 2022, available on www.sedar.com, for an explanation of the composition of the non-IFRS measures used in this press release and their usefulness for readers in assessing Allied’s performance. Such explanation is incorporated by reference herein.
