Duke Realty Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2015 Results

2015 Core FFO per Share of $1.17 and AFFO per Share of $1.01

Record Occupancy Level

2016 Guidance Issued

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2016) - Duke Realty Corporation (NYSE: DRE), a leading industrial and medical office property REIT, today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year 2015.

Jim Connor, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We finished 2015 with a very strong fourth quarter from an operational perspective with in-service portfolio occupancy at an all time record high of 96.1 percent, which is especially impressive considering that we placed in service 23 development projects, totaling 6.2 million square feet, during the year. We also renewed 9.2 million square feet of leases during 2015, averaging annual net effective rent growth across all product types of 11.9 percent for the year and 13.8 percent for the fourth quarter.

We also continued to dispose of non-strategic land and buildings totaling $146 million during the quarter, bringing the full year combined building and land dispositions to just under $2 billion. We recycled these proceeds into over $680 million of high quality bulk distribution and medical office developments, as well as paying off over $1.0 billion of debt to significantly bolster the balance sheet, while at the same time growing AFFO per share over the prior year.

Lastly, I am very excited to assume the role as our company's Chief Executive Officer and continue to execute our strategy and drive strong risk-adjusted returns for our shareholders."

Quarterly and Full Year Highlights

  • Core Funds from Operations ("Core FFO") per diluted share of $0.29 for the quarter and $1.17 for the year. Funds from Operations ("FFO") per diluted share, as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"), of $0.21 for the quarter and $0.86 for the year.

  • Adjusted Funds from Operations ("AFFO") of $0.24 per diluted share for the quarter and $1.01 per diluted share for the year.

  • Strong operating momentum:

    • Total portfolio occupancy of 94.0 percent and in-service portfolio occupancy of 96.1 percent;

    • Total leasing activity of 6.7 million square feet for the quarter and 21.7 million square feet for the year;

    • Same-property net operating income growth of 3.1 percent as compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2014 and 4.7 percent as compared to the year ended December 31, 2014.

  • Successful execution of capital transactions:

    • Began $238 million of new developments during the quarter and $684 million during the year. Development starts for the year were comprised of $528 million of industrial projects and $156 million of medical office projects;

    • Completed $108 million of building dispositions during the quarter and $1.8 billion for the full year;

    • Sold $38 million of undeveloped land during the quarter and $132 million during the full year;

    • Repaid $150 million of 5.5 percent unsecured notes, that had an original maturity date of March 2016, during the quarter. Repaid $831 million of unsecured notes and $231 million of secured debt during the year.

Mark Denien, Chief Financial Officer, commented, "We significantly improved our balance sheet in 2015 and we expect it to further improve throughout 2016, putting the company in a very strong position to be opportunistic in our investment opportunities on a self-funding basis. Our recent deleveraging efforts and commitment to further improvements resulted in an increase in our credit outlook from stable to positive by both Moody's Investors Service and Standard & Poor's Rating Services last week. We are now rated Baa2 (positive) by Moody's and BBB (positive) by Standard & Poor's."

Financial Performance

The following table reconciles FFO per share, as defined by NAREIT, to Core FFO per share as measured by the company, for both the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015 and 2014:

         
  Three Months Ended
December 31
  Twelve Months Ended
December 31
 
  2015   2014   2015   2014  
FFO per share - diluted, as defined by NAREIT $ 0.21     $ 0.20     $ 0.86     $ 1.07  
Adjustments:                        
  Gain on land sales   (0.03 )     (0.01 )     (0.10 )     (0.03 )
  Charges for pre-payment of debt   0.01       0.00       0.24       0.00  
  Adjustments for redemption of preferred shares   0.00       0.03       0.00       0.04  
  Impairment charges - non-depreciable properties   0.10       0.07       0.12       0.10  
  Overhead restructuring charges   0.00       0.00       0.02       0.00  
  Acquisition-related activity   0.00       0.00       0.02       0.00  
Core FFO per share - diluted $ 0.29     $ 0.30     $ 1.17     $ 1.18  
                               
  • Core FFO was $103 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2015, a decrease from $105 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2014. Core FFO was $412 million, or $1.17 per diluted share, for the full year 2015, compared to $406 million, or $1.18 per diluted share, in 2014. Core FFO on an absolute and per share basis was impacted in 2015 by the significant property dispositions that were executed throughout 2014 and 2015. The dilution from these dispositions was mostly offset by improved operational performance.

  • FFO, as defined by NAREIT, was $0.21 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2015, an increase from $0.20 per share in the fourth quarter of 2014. FFO, as defined by NAREIT, was $0.86 per diluted share for the full year 2015 compared to $1.07 per diluted share for the full year 2014. The decrease to FFO as defined by NAREIT, for the full year 2015, was largely the result of the losses on extinguishment of debt recognized in 2015.

  • Net income was $0.07 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to a net loss of $0.01 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2014. In addition to the items that impact both net income (loss) and FFO such as impairments of non-depreciable properties, the fourth quarter of 2014 net loss included $14 million of non-cash impairment charges on depreciable properties, which do not impact FFO as defined by NAREIT. Net income was $1.77 per diluted share for the full year 2015 compared to $0.60 per diluted share for 2014. The increase to net income per share was due to significantly higher gains on depreciable property sales during the full year 2015, when compared to the full year 2014.

Portfolio Operating Performance

Strong overall operating performance across all product types:

  • In-service occupancy in the bulk distribution portfolio of 96.5 percent on December 31, 2015 compared to 96.2 percent on September 30, 2015 and 96.4 percent on December 31, 2014.

  • In-service occupancy in the medical office portfolio of 95.5 percent on December 31, 2015 compared to 95.0 percent on September 30, 2015 and 94.3 percent on December 31, 2014.

  • In-service occupancy in the suburban office portfolio of 85.9 percent on December 31, 2015 compared to 89.0 percent on September 30, 2015 and 87.9 percent on December 31, 2014.

  • Same-property net operating income growth of 3.1 percent and 4.7 percent for the three and twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2015 compared to the comparable periods in 2014. The growth in same-property net operating income was due to increased occupancy and rental rate growth.

  • Tenant retention of 80 percent for the quarter and 76 percent for the year, with overall average annual net effective rental rate growth on renewals of 13.8 percent for the quarter and 11.9 percent for the year.

Real Estate Investment Activity

Development

Jim Connor, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We began development of seven projects totaling 2.4 million square feet with total anticipated costs of $238 million during the fourth quarter. These projects were 61 percent pre-leased in the aggregate. In total, we have $665 million of projects currently under construction that are 58 percent pre-leased in the aggregate. We have a healthy pipeline of industrial and medical office prospects heading into 2016."

The fourth quarter included the following development activity:

Wholly-Owned Properties

  • The company started four new industrial developments during the quarter, totaling 1.2 million square feet. Two of these projects were 100 percent leased build-to-suit projects and two were speculative projects.

  • The company started two new medical office developments during the quarter, which were 75 percent leased in aggregate, totaling 158,000 square feet.

  • Wholly-owned development projects under construction at December 31, 2015 consisted of 15 industrial projects totaling 5.3 million square feet and 10 medical office projects totaling 636,000 square feet.

  • Five industrial projects and three industrial expansions totaling 1.6 million square feet, which were 66 percent pre-leased in the aggregate, were placed in service during the quarter. Additionally, one 144,000 square foot suburban office property, which was 13 percent leased, and one 37,000 square foot medical office development, which was 100 percent pre-leased, were placed in service.

Joint Venture Properties 

  • During the quarter, a 1.0 million square foot industrial project, which was 100 percent pre-leased, was started in Columbus in a 50 percent owned unconsolidated joint venture.

  • Joint venture development projects under construction at December 31, 2015 consisted of three industrial projects totaling 1.9 million square feet.

Building Dispositions

Dispositions for the full year 2015 totaled $1.8 billion. Fourth quarter dispositions totaled $108 million and were comprised of thirteen wholly owned suburban office properties, totaling 1.2 million square feet. The most significant of these dispositions was a five building, 728,000 square foot, suburban office portfolio in Cincinnati.

Dividends Declared

The company's board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.18 per share, or $0.72 per share on an annualized basis, on the company's common stock. The fourth quarter dividend will be payable February 29, 2016 to shareholders of record on February 16, 2016.

2016 Earnings Guidance

Commenting on the company's 2016 outlook, Mr. Connor stated, "We are introducing 2016 guidance for Core FFO of $1.15 to $1.21 per share, and AFFO of $1.02 to $1.08 per share. This guidance factors in the disposition of substantially all of our remaining suburban office properties and a continued investment in new and largely pre-leased development projects. Due to our strategy to dispose of our remaining suburban office properties, all operational guidance and results will be provided for only our industrial and medical office portfolios on an ongoing basis."

The company's reconciliation of Core FFO to FFO as defined by NAREIT is as follows:

       
  Pessimistic   Optimistic
Core FFO per share - diluted $ 1.15     $ 1.21
Adjustments:          
  Net gain on land sales   0.00       0.03
  Charges for pre-payment of debt   (0.02 )     0.00
  Acquisition-related activity   (0.01 )     0.00
FFO per share - diluted, as defined by NAREIT $ 1.12     $ 1.24

The assumptions underlying the guidance are as follows:

1. Dispositions of mainly suburban office properties in a range of $600 million to $900 million with proceeds used to fund new development opportunities and debt maturities;

2. Same property net operating income growth of 2.75 percent to 4.25 percent for our industrial and medical office portfolios on a combined basis;

3. Average in-service occupancy of 95.4 percent to 96.4 percent for our industrial and medical office portfolios on a combined basis;

4. Service operations income of $8 million to $12 million.

5. Continued improvement in key leverage metrics.

More specific assumptions and components of our 2016 guidance will be available by 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time today through the Investor Relations-Financials section of the company's website.

FFO and AFFO Reporting Definitions

FFO: FFO is computed in accordance with standards established by NAREIT. NAREIT defines FFO as net income (loss) excluding gains (losses) on sales of depreciable property, impairment charges related to depreciable real estate assets, and extraordinary items (computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP")); plus real estate related depreciation and amortization, and after similar adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures. The company believes FFO to be most directly comparable to net income as defined by GAAP. The company believes that FFO should be examined in conjunction with net income (as defined by GAAP) as presented in the financial statements accompanying this release. FFO does not represent a measure of liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available for the company's cash needs, including the company's ability to make cash distributions to shareholders.

Core FFO: Core FFO is computed as FFO adjusted for certain items that are generally non-cash in nature and that materially distort the comparative measurement of company performance over time. The adjustments include gains on sale of undeveloped land, impairment charges not related to depreciable real estate assets, tax expenses or benefit related to (i) changes in deferred tax asset valuation allowances, (ii) changes in tax exposure accruals that were established as the result of the adoption of new accounting principles, or (iii) taxable income (loss) related to other items excluded from FFO or Core FFO (collectively referred to as "other income tax items"), gains (losses) on debt transactions, adjustments on the repurchase or redemption of preferred stock, gains (losses) on and related costs of acquisitions, and severance charges related to major overhead restructuring activities. Although the company's calculation of Core FFO differs from NAREIT's definition of FFO and may not be comparable to that of other REITs and real estate companies, the company believes it provides a meaningful supplemental measure of its operating performance.

AFFO: AFFO is defined by the company as Core FFO (as defined above), less recurring building improvements and total second generation capital expenditures (the leasing of vacant space that had previously been under lease by the company is referred to as second generation lease activity) related to leases commencing during the reporting period and adjusted for certain non-cash items including straight line rental income, non-cash components of interest expense and stock compensation expense, and after similar adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

Same Property Performance

The company includes same-property net operating income growth as a property-level supplemental measure of performance. The company does not believe same-property net operating income growth to be a primary measure of overall company operating performance. The company utilizes same-property net income growth as a supplemental measure to evaluate property-level performance, without differentiating or making adjustment as to whether a property is consolidated or jointly controlled.

A description of the properties that are excluded from the company's same-property measure is included on page 20 of our December 31, 2015 supplemental information.
