  • Strong occupancies and increased average monthly rents, combined with contributions from acquisitions, drive 10.6% and 15.7% increase in revenues in fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013, respectively

  • Average monthly rents for residential properties up 2.9% in 2013 compared to last year

  • Portfolio occupancy remains strong at 98.0%, up from 97.9% last year.

  • Acquired 4,931 apartment suites and MHC sites in 2013, strengthening and further diversifying property portfolio

  • NFFO up 8.3% in fourth quarter and 20.2% for year ended December 31, 2013

  • Strong accretive growth as NFFO per Unit up 5.1% in 2013 despite 14% increase in the weighted average number of Units outstanding.

  • Same property NOI up 3.0% in 2013

  • Closed mortgage refinancings (excluding acquisitions) for $507.9 million in 2013, including $333.7 million for renewals of existing mortgages and $174.2 million for additional top up financing with a weighted average term to maturity of 10 years, and a weighted average interest rate of 3.15%.

"2013 was another record year for CAPREIT as we benefited from our significant portfolio growth over the last three years and continuing strong occupancies and increases in average monthly rents," commented Thomas Schwartz, President and CEO. "We also further strengthened and diversified our property portfolio during the year, increasing our presence in our targeted geographic markets and entering new urban growth regions that serve to enhance our risk profile."

"Looking ahead, we believe 2014 will be another strong year for CAPREIT. Our recently-acquired properties are just beginning to benefit from our proven property management programs, and we expect to generate additional portfolio growth through the year. In addition, continuing strong fundamentals in the Canadian multi-unit residential rental sector should allow us to maintain our high occupancies and track record of stable increases in average monthly rents."

Operating Revenues

For the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013, total operating revenues increased by 10.6% and 15.7%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year primarily due to the contribution from acquisitions, higher average monthly rents, and continuing strong occupancies. For the three months and year ended December 31, 2013, ancillary revenues, including parking, laundry and antenna income, rose by 16.7% and 20.6%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year, due to contributions from acquisitions and Management's continued focus on maximizing the revenue potential of its property portfolio.

CAPREIT's annualized net rental revenue run-rate as at December 31, 2013 increased to $476.4 million, up 10.8% from $429.8 million as at December 31, 2012 primarily due to acquisitions completed within the past twelve months and strong rental growth. Net rental revenue run-rate net of dispositions for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $447.5 million (2012 - $386.3 million).

Average monthly rents for residential suites increased by 2.9% to $1,060 as at December 31, 2013 compared to last year while occupancy increased to 98.0% due to ongoing successful sales and marketing strategies and continued strength in the residential rental sector in the majority of CAPREIT's regional markets. Average monthly rents for residential suites owned prior to December 31, 2012 increased as at December 31, 2013 to $1,061 from $1,030 as at December 31, 2012, an increase of 3.0% from last year with occupancies rising to 98.2% from 97.8%. For the MHC land lease portfolio, average monthly rents decreased to $348 as at December 31, 2013, compared to $439 as at December 31 2012, primarily due to the recent acquisitions in lower rent geographic regions. Occupancy for the MHC portfolio was 97.6% at year end compared to 99.2% last year due to the acquisition of 2,808 MHC land lease sites acquired in the fourth quarter of 2013.

(1) Percentage of suites turned over or renewed during the period based on the total number of residential suites (excluding co-ownerships) held at the end of the period.

The lower rate of growth in average monthly rents on lease renewals during 2013 compared to the prior year is primarily due to the lower mandated guideline increases for 2013 (Ontario - 2.5%, British Columbia - 3.8%), compared to the higher guideline increases in 2012 (Ontario - 3.1%, British Columbia - 4.3%). Management continues to pursue Above Guideline Increases ("AGI") applications where it believes increases are supported by market conditions above the annual guideline to raise average monthly rents on lease renewals. For 2014, the permitted guideline increase in Ontario and British Columbia have been set at 0.8% and 2.2%, respectively.

Operating Expenses

Overall operating expenses as a percentage of operating revenues increased slightly to 46.8% and 42.6% respectively for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 compared to 44.1% and 42.3% for last year, as a result of higher operating expenses for 2013 acquisitions, increased repairs and maintenance ("R&M") and in-suite maintenance costs, partially offset by lower wages and hydro costs in 2013 than last year.

Net Operating Income

In the three months ended December 31, 2013, NOI improved by $3.4 million or 5.4%, and the NOI margin decreased to 53.2% from 55.9% for last year. For the year ended December 31, 2013, NOI increased by $35.9 million or 15.1%, and the NOI margin remained stable at 57.4% compared to 57.7% for the same period last year. The slight decrease in NOI margin in 2013 was primarily the result of lower margin acquisitions completed in the last 12 month period partially offset by higher operating revenues.

For the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013, operating revenues for stabilized suites and sites increased 3.6% and 3.2% respectively, while operating expenses increased 11.5% and 3.4%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year. As a result, for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013, stabilized NOI decreased by 2.6% and increased by 3.0%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year.

Financial Strength

Management believes CAPREIT's strong balance sheet and liquidity position will enable it to continue to take advantage of acquisition and property capital investment opportunities over the long term.

CAPREIT is achieving its financing goals as demonstrated by the following key indicators:

  • Continues to maintain conservative ratio of total debt to gross book value as at December 31, 2013 of 47.32%;

  • Debt service and interest coverage ratios for the year ended December 31, 2013 improved to 1.54 times and 2.62 times compared to 1.52 times and 2.51 times, respectively, for last year;

  • As at December 31, 2013, 93.9% (December 31, 2012 - 92.9%) of CAPREIT's mortgage portfolio was insured by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation ("CMHC"), excluding the mortgages on CAPREIT's MHC land lease sites and the Ireland portfolio, resulting in improved spreads on mortgages and overall lower interest costs than conventional mortgages.

  • The effective portfolio weighted average interest rate on mortgages has steadily declined to 3.76% as at December 31, 2013 from 3.87% as at December 31, 2012, resulting in significant potential interest rate savings in future years;

  • Management expects to raise between $600 million and $650 million in total mortgage renewals and refinancings in 2013;

  • The weighted average term to maturity of the mortgage portfolio has improved from 5.4 years to 6.0 years as at December 31, 2013;

  • As at December 31, 2013, CAPREIT has investment properties with a fair value of $271.1 million that are not encumbered by mortgages and secure only the Acquisition and Operating Facility;

Property Capital Investment Plan

During the year ended December 31, 2013, CAPREIT made property capital investments (excluding disposed properties, head office assets, tenant improvements and signage) of $157.9 million as compared to $128.3 million last year. For the full 2014 year, CAPREIT expects to complete property capital investments of approximately $165 million to $175 million, including approximately $87 million targeted at acquisitions completed since January 1, 2011 and approximately $22 million in high-efficiency boilers and other energy-saving initiatives.

Property capital investments include suite improvements, common areas and equipment, which generally tend to increase NOI more quickly. CAPREIT continues to invest in energy-saving initiatives, including boilers, energy-efficient lighting systems, and water-saving programs, which permit CAPREIT to mitigate potentially higher increases in utility and R&M costs and significantly improve overall portfolio NOI.

Subsequent Event

On January 31, 2014, the third party external management agreements for the performance of certain asset and property management services concluded. The 16 manufactured home communities in Colorado, Texas, Arizona and Michigan, which were managed by CAPREIT for a third party real estate owner, have been sold. The agreements were entered into on December 5, 2012.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

CAPREIT prepares and releases unaudited quarterly 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 non-IFRS financial measures, including Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate, NOI, FFO, NFFO and applicable per Unit amounts and payout ratios. These non-IFRS measures are further defined and discussed in the MD&A released on February 28, 2014, which should be read in conjunction with this press release. Since Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate, NOI, FFO and NFFO are not determined by IFRS, they may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other issuers. CAPREIT has presented such non-IFRS measures as Management believes these non-IFRS measures are relevant measures of the ability of CAPREIT to earn and distribute cash returns to Unitholders and to evaluate CAPREIT's performance. A reconciliation of Net Income and such non-IFRS measures including Adjusted Funds From Operations ("AFFO") is included in this press release. These non-IFRS measures should not be construed as alternatives to net income (loss) or cash flow from operating activities determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of CAPREIT's performance.
