Operating Revenues

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, total operating revenues increased by 4.3% and 3.4%, 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 nine months ended September 30, 2015, ancillary revenues, including parking, laundry and antenna income, rose by 11.7% and 7.6%, 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 September 30, 2015 increased to $542.7 million, up 11.4% from $487.2 million as at September 30, 2014 primarily due to acquisitions completed within the last twelve months and strong increases in average monthly rents on properties owned prior to September 30, 2014. Net rental revenue run-rate net of dispositions for the twelve months ended September 30, 2015 was $488.6 million (2014 - $473.0 million).

(1) Prior period's comparable AMR and occupancy have been restated for properties disposed of since September 30, 2014.

Average monthly rents and occupancy for residential suites decreased slightly as at September 30, 2015 due to recent acquisitions in lower rent demographic sectors offset by ongoing successful sales and marketing strategies and continued strength in the residential rental sector in the majority of CAPREIT's regional markets. For the Manufactured Housing Community ("MHC") land lease portfolio, average monthly rents increased to $364 as at September 30, 2015, compared to $354 as at September 30, 2014. Occupancy for the MHC portfolio rose to 98.6% at September 30, 2015 from 97.6% at the same time last year.

Average monthly rents for residential suites owned prior to September 30, 2014 also increased as at September 30, 2015 to $1,097 from $1,080 as at September 30, 2014, an increase of 1.6% from the same period last year with occupancies remaining strong at 98.1%.

The higher rate of growth in average monthly rents on lease renewals during 2015 compared to the prior year is primarily due to the higher mandated guideline increases for 2015 (Ontario - 1.6%, British Columbia - 2.5%), compared to the lower guideline increases in 2014 (Ontario - 0.8%, British Columbia - 2.2%) and by increases due to above guideline increases ("AGI") achieved in Ontario in 2015. Management continues to pursue AGI applications where it believes increases are supported by market conditions above the annual guideline to raise average monthly rents on lease renewals. For 2016, the permitted guideline increase in Ontario and British Columbia have been increased to 2.0% and 2.9%, respectively.

Operating Expenses

Overall operating expenses as a percentage of operating revenues improved to 37.7% and 39.1%, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to 38.6% and 40.0%, respectively, for the same periods last year, due to lower repairs and maintenance ("R&M") and wages costs as a percentage of operating revenues.

Net Operating Income

For the three months ended September 30, 2015, NOI increased by $4.5 million or 5.8%, and the NOI margin strengthed to 62.3% from 61.4% for the same period last year. For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, NOI increased by $11.1 million or 4.9%, and the NOI margin rose to 60.9% compared to 60.0% last year. The increase in NOI margin for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 was primarily the result of higher operating revenues and lower R&M as a percentage of operating revenues.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, operating revenues for stabilized suites and sites increased 2.2% and 2.0% respectively, while operating expenses increased 0.3% and decreased 0.3%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year. As a result, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, stabilized NOI increased by a strong 3.3% and 3.6%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year, showing the positive effects of CAPREIT's geographic diversification across Canada.

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 below our target debt ratio to 49.27% as at September 30, 2015 compared to 46.80% for the same period last year and as at November 16, 2015, the total debt to gross book value ratio was approximately 46%;
  • Debt service and interest coverage ratios for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 improved to 1.61 times and 2.93 times, respectively, compared to 1.59 times and 2.72 times last year;
  • As at September 30, 2015, 96.0% (September 30, 2014 - 95.8%) 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 3.53% as at September 30, 2015 from 3.66% as at September 30, 2014, resulting in significant potential interest rate savings in future years;
  • Management expects to raise between $325 million and $375 million in total mortgage renewals and refinancings in 2015 excluding financings on acquisitions;
  • The weighted average term to maturity of the mortgage portfolio remained stable at 6.20 years as at September 30, 2015 compared to 6.5 years at September 30, 2014;
  • As at September 30, 2015, CAPREIT has investment properties with a fair value of $871.7 million not encumbered by mortgages and secure only the Acquisition and Operating Facility and Bridge Increase. Approximately $598.6 million of unencumbered properties have closed or committed mortgage financing subsequent to September 30, 2015 up to November 16, 2015. 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 nine months ended September 30, 2015, CAPREIT made property capital investments (excluding disposed properties, head office assets, tenant improvements and signage) of $105.3 million as compared to $93.8 million in the same period last year. For the full 2015 year, CAPREIT expects to complete property capital investments of approximately $155 million to $165 million, including approximately $57 million targeted at acquisitions completed since January 1, 2011, and approximately $17 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 October 9, 2015, CAPREIT closed its equity issue and sale of 8,720,000 Trust Units which was previously announced on September 21, 2015, for $28.70 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $250.3 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 and financings on recent acquisitions to pay off the Bridge Increase and 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 November 16, 2015, 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.
