Operating Revenues

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, total operating revenues increased by 7.1% and 7.0%, 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, 2017, ancillary revenues, including parking, laundry and antenna income, increased by 5.1% and 6.0% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, respectively, compared to the same periods last year. For the stabilized properties, operating revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 increased by 3.3% and 3.1% respectively.

CAPREIT's annualized net rental revenue run-rate as at June 30, 2017 improved to $599.1 million, up 4.0% from $576.2 million at the same period last year, primarily due to acquisitions completed over the last twelve months and strong increases in average monthly rents on properties owned prior to June 30, 2016. Net rental revenue run-rate net of dispositions for the twelve months ended June 30, 2017 was $583.6 million (June 30, 2016 - $536.9 million).

(1) Prior period comparable AMR and occupancy have been restated for properties disposed of since June 30, 2016.
(2) Under the purchase agreements for a property acquired on May 3, 2017, CAPREIT received monthly escrow payments for the positive differences, if any, between: (a) 100.0% of the gross rent roll for such month less (b) the actual rent earned for such month, with all applicable sales taxes. CAPREIT continues to receive escrow payments when the actual gross revenues were less than the threshold up to a maximum of $2.5 million for the property, after which rental revenue will be based on actual occupancy. The occupancy rates in the tables are reflected at 100.0% for this property.

Overall average monthly rents for the stabilized residential suite portfolio (properties owned prior to June 30, 2016) increased 3.1% to $1,114 as at June 30, 2017 from $1,081 at June 30, 2016. 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 markets. Occupancy for the stabilized residential suite portfolio increased to 98.6% as at June 30, 2017 compared to 98.2% for the same period last year.

For the MHC land lease portfolio, average monthly rents increased to $383 as at June 30, 2017, compared to $372 as at June 30, 2016 while occupancy strengthened to 98.4% compared to 98.3% 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 and the Netherland properties) held at the end of the period.

Suite turnovers in the residential suite portfolio (excluding co-ownerships and the Netherland properties) during the three months ended June 30, 2017 resulted in average monthly rent increasing by approximately $66 or 5.9% per suite compared to an increase of approximately $7 or 0.6% for the same period last year. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, suite turnovers resulted in average monthly rent increasing by approximately $57 or 5.1% compared to a decrease of approximately $7 or 0.7% in the same period last year due primarily to continuing strong rental markets in British Columbia and Ontario partially offset by strategically reduced rents in Alberta and Saskatchewan aimed at increasing occupancy and reducing turnover in these regions.

Pursuant to Management's focus on increasing overall portfolio rents average monthly rents on lease renewals for the three months ended June 30, 2017 increased by approximately $22 or 1.9% per suite compared to an increase of approximately $21 or 1.9% for the same period last year. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, average monthly rents on lease renewals increased by approximately $21 or 1.9%, compared to an increase of approximately $22 or 2.0% for the same period last year. The rate of growth in average monthly rents on lease renewals has been impacted by the strategically reduced rents in Alberta and Saskatchewan, changes to the mandated rental guideline increases in Ontario and British Columbia for 2017 (Ontario - 1.5%, British Columbia - 3.7%) compared to 2016 (Ontario - 2.0%, British Columbia - 2.9%), and by increases due to above guideline increases ("AGI") achieved in Ontario. 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 2018, the permitted guideline increase in Ontario has been set at 1.8%.

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 strengthened to 44.0% as at June 30, 2017 compared to 47.0% for the same period last year;

  • Debt service and interest coverage ratio remained stable at 1.63 times and increased to 3.16 times, respectively, compared to 1.63 times and 3.01 times for the same periods last year1.63;

  • As at June 30, 2017, 96.1% (June 30, 2016 - 96.5%), 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, Euro LIBOR borrowings and European financings 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 3.14% as at June 30, 2017 from 3.28% as at June 30, 2016, resulting in significant potential interest rate savings in future years;

  • Management expects to raise between $185 million and $225 million in total mortgage renewals and refinancings in 2017; Closed and committed mortgage refinancings and new financings for $199.6 million, including $106.8 million for renewals of existing mortgages and $92.8 million for additional top up financing and new acquisition financing with a weighted average term to maturity of 9.0 years, and a weighted average interest rate of 2.68%;

  • The weighted average term to maturity for the mortgage portfolio decreased to 5.9 years as at June 30, 2017 compared to 6.5 years as at June 30, 2016;

  • As at June 30, 2017, CAPREIT has investment properties with a fair value of $252.5 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.

Property Capital Investments

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, CAPREIT made property capital investments (excluding head office assets) of $73.7 million compared to $71.3 million in the same period last year. For the full 2017 year, CAPREIT expects to complete property capital investments (excluding development and intensification) of approximately $170 million to $180 million, including approximately $60 million targeted at acquisitions completed since January 1, 2013, and approximately $25 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 12, 2017, CAPREIT completed the previously announced acquisition of 19 properties totaling 849 residential suites located in eight cities and towns in the Netherlands. The purchase price of EUR170.4 million will be financed with new mortgage financing of approximately EUR100.8 million with a weighted average term of approximately 7.5 years bearing a weighted average interest rate of approximately 1.9% and the remaining with a euro-based loan under CAPREIT's Acquisition and Operating credit facility.

On August 8, 2017, CAPREIT completed the acquisition of a 56 unit rental apartment located in Enschede, Netherlands at a purchase price of EUR8.4 million financed with CAPREIT's Acquisition and Operating credit facility.

With the completion of these transactions, CAPREIT's Netherlands portfolio has grown to 1,473 residential suites well-located in major city centres in the country.

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 14, 2017, 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. A reconciliation of Net Income and these Non-IFRS measures is included in this press release. 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.
