Operating Revenues

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, total operating revenues increased by 12.6% and 12.8%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year primarily due to the contribution from acquisitions, higher same property average monthly rents, and continuing strong occupancies. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, ancillary revenues, such as parking, laundry and antenna income, as a percentage of total operating revenues were 5.3% and 5.3%, respectively, compared to 5.6% and 5.4%, for the same periods last year.

CAPREIT's annualized net rental revenue run-rate as at June 30, 2016 increased to $576.2 million, up 16.4% from $494.8 million as at June 30, 2015 primarily due to acquisitions completed within the last twelve months and strong increases in average monthly rents on properties owned prior to June 30, 2015. Net rental revenue run-rate net of dispositions for the twelve months ended June 30, 2016 was $536.9 million (2015 - $483.1 million).

Overall Portfolio Average $ 980 98.2 $ 976 98.2 $ 995 98.2 $ 976 98.2

Overall average monthly rents for the stabilized residential suite portfolio (properties owned prior to June 30, 2015) increased 1.9% to $1,109 at June 30, 2016 from $1,088 at June 30, 2015. The increases were due primarily to a combination of ongoing successful sales and marketing strategies, above guideline rent increases, and continued strength in the residential rental sector in the majority of CAPREIT's regional markets. Occupancy for the stabilized residential suite portfolio increased to 98.2% as at June 30, 2016 compared to 98.0% for the same period last year.

For the MHC land lease portfolio, average monthly rents increased to $372 as at June 30, 2016, compared to $360 as at June 30, 2015 while occupancy remained strong at 98.3% compared to 99.0% for the same period last year. Management believes MHC land lease sites provide secure and stable cash flows due to long-term tenancies, high occupancies, steady increases in average monthly rents, and significantly lower capital and maintenance costs.

(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.

Suite turnovers in the residential suite portfolio (excluding co-ownerships) during the three months ended June 30, 2016 resulted in average monthly rent increasing by approximately $7 or 0.6% per suite compared to an increase of approximately $21 or 1.9% in the same period last year. For the six months ended June 30, 2016, suite turnovers resulted in average monthly rent decreasing by approximately $7 or 0.7% compared to an increase of approximately $17 or 1.5% in the same period last year primarily due to strategically reduced rents in the Alberta and Saskatchewan rental markets to increase occupancy and higher unit turnover than in previous years, offset by the strong rental markets of British Columbia and Ontario.

During 2016, Management made a strategic decision to reduce rents in Alberta and Saskatchewan in order to increase occupancies and reduce turnovers in these regions. Alberta and Saskatchewan have been facing increased pressure due to low energy prices resulting in a weaker economy in these regions than in the rest of Canada. Not including Alberta and Saskatchewan, average monthly rents increased strongly by approximately $34 or 3.1% and $34 or 3.2%, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively, compared to an increase of $27 or 2.5% and $22 or 2.1% respectively for the same period last year, primarily due to the strong rental markets of British Columbia and Ontario.

Pursuant to Management's focus on increasing overall portfolio rents for the three months ended June 30, 2016 average monthly rents on lease renewals increased by approximately $20 or 1.9% per suite compared to an increase of approximately $22 or 2.0% for the same period last year. For the six months ended June 30, 2016, average monthly rents on lease renewals increased by approximately $22 or 2.0%, compared to an increase of approximately $23 or 2.1% for the same period last year. The lower rate of growth in average monthly rents on lease renewals during the period is due primarily to the strategically reduced rents in Alberta to increase occupancy, offset by higher guideline increases for 2016 (Ontario - 2.0%, British Columbia - 2.9%), compared to the permitted guideline increases in 2015 (Ontario - 1.6%, British Columbia - 2.5%), and by increases due to above guideline increases ("AGI") achieved in Ontario. Increased portfolio diversification helped mitigate geographical risk in particular areas of Canada. Management continues to pursue applications in Ontario for AGIs where it believes increases above the annual guideline are supported by market conditions to raise average monthly rents on lease renewals. For 2017, the permitted guideline increase in Ontario has been set to 1.5%.

Net Operating Income

For the three months ended June 30, 2016, NOI increased by $9.8 million or 12.1%, and the NOI margin remained strong at 62.1% compared to 62.4% for the same period 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:

  • Total debt to gross book value ratio remained strong at 47.0% as at June 30, 2016 compared to 43.7% for the same period last year;
  • Debt service and interest coverage as at June 30, 2016 improved to 1.63 times and 3.01 times, respectively, compared to 1.60 times and 2.88 times last year;
  • As at June 30, 2016, 96.5% (June 30, 2015 - 95.9%) 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 Euro LIBOR borrowings, resulting in improved spreads on mortgages and lower overall interest costs than conventional mortgages.
  • The effective portfolio weighted average interest rate on mortgages has steadily declined to 3.28% as at June 30, 2016 from 3.57% as at June 30, 2015, resulting in significant potential interest rate savings in future years;
  • Management expects to raise between $275 million and $325 million in total mortgage renewals and refinancings in 2016;
  • The weighted average term to maturity of the mortgage portfolio increased to 6.5 years as at June 30, 2016 compared to 6.2 years at June 30, 2015;
  • As at June 30, 2016, CAPREIT has investment properties with a fair value of $266.3 million not encumbered by mortgages and securing only the Acquisition and Operating Facility. CAPREIT intends to maintain unencumbered investment properties with an aggregate fair value in the range of $150 and $180 million over the long term.
  • On July 11, 2016, CAPREIT announced it had agreed to sell, subject to regulatory approval, 4,660,000 Units for $32.20 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $150.1 million on a bought-deal basis with an over-allotment option. The transaction closed on August 3, 2016, and under the over-allotment option, 466,000 additional Units were also issued on August 3, 2016, for gross proceeds of $15.0 million. CAPREIT used the net proceeds of the offering to repay a portion of its borrowings under its Acquisition and Operating Facility.
  • Effective June 30, 2016, CAPREIT amended its credit agreement which increased to $505.0 million and added an additional lender in the syndicate. The Credit Facilities includes the amended $440.0 million Acquisition and Operating Facility and the existing $65.0 million non-revolving term credit facility.

Property Capital Investments

During the six months ended June 30, 2016, CAPREIT made property capital investments (excluding disposed properties, head office assets, tenant improvements and signage) of $70.7 million as compared to $58.2 million in the same period last year. For the full 2016 year, CAPREIT expects to complete property capital investments of approximately $170 million to $180 million, including approximately $92 million targeted at acquisitions completed since January 1, 2011, and approximately $21 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 also 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 Events

On July 27, 2016, CAPREIT completed the disposition of a mid-tier property consisting 145 apartment suites located in Montréal, Québec for a sale price of approximately $25.0 million and a mortgage assumed by the purchaser of approximately $12.1 million with a term to maturity of March 2025 and a stated interest rate of 2.94%. CAPREIT used the net proceeds of the sale to partially repay the Acquisition and Operating Facility.

On August 3, 2015, CAPREIT closed its equity issue and sale of 5,126,000 Trust Units (including over allotment) which was previously announced on July 11, 2016, for $32.20 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $165.1 million. The offering was sold through a syndicate of underwriters led by RBC Capital Markets on a bought-deal basis. CAPREIT used the net proceeds of the offering to partially repay the Acquisition and Operating Facility.

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 August 9, 2016, 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.
