    • Total leasing activity of 8.9 million square feet for the quarter and 27.6 million square feet for the year
    • Overall rent growth on new and renewal leases of 15.2 percent for the quarter and 16.6 percent for the year

    • Issued 8.4 million common shares under our ATM program, at an average issuance price of $25.93, for total net proceeds of $216 million during 2016.
    • Completed $247 million of non-strategic building and land dispositions during the quarter and $760 million for the year.

Jim Connor, President and CEO said, "I'm happy to report that we finished the year at another record-high level of in-service occupancy. Same-property net operating income growth continued at a strong pace, increasing by 4.5 percent for the three months ended December 31, 2016 compared to the same period in 2015, as the result of increased occupancy and continued rental rate growth.

I am also pleased to announce that, when considering the suburban office property dispositions that closed during the fourth quarter of 2016, we have essentially completed our exit from that product type."

Mark Denien, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "During the fourth quarter, our credit ratings were raised by both Moody's and Standard & Poor's, to Baa1 and BBB+ respectively, which represented the culmination of our long-term strategy to de-leverage our balance sheet. The increase to our credit ratings will reduce borrowing costs and help position us to continue to fund future growth."

Financial Performance

  • A complete reconciliation, in dollars and per share amounts, of net income to FFO, as defined by NAREIT, as well as to Core FFO, is included in the financial tables included in this release. The following table reconciles diluted income per common share to diluted FFO per share, as defined by NAREIT, and to diluted Core FFO per share as measured by the company for the three and 12 months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015:
          
   Three Months Ended December 31   Twelve Months Ended December 31  
   2016   2015   2016   2015  
Net income per common share, diluted  $0.13   $0.07   $0.88   $1.77  
 Adjustments:                     
  Depreciation and amortization   0.22    0.22    0.89    0.91  
  Gains on depreciable property sales   (0.07 )  (0.09 )  (0.45 )  (1.85 )
  Share of reconciling items from joint ventures   0.01    0.01    (0.11 )  0.04  
 FFO per share - diluted, as defined by NAREIT  $0.29   $0.21   $1.21   $0.86  
 Adjustments:                     
  Gains on land sales   (0.02 )  (0.03 )  (0.04 )  (0.10 )

 Core FFO per share – diluted  $0.31   $0.29   $1.20   $1.17  
                  
  • Net income was $0.13 per diluted share, or $48 million, for the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to $0.07 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2015. The increase was primarily driven by impairment charges, both related to undeveloped land and equity method investments, recognized during the fourth quarter of 2015. Net income was $0.88 per diluted share, or $315 million, for the full year 2016 compared to $1.77 per diluted share for the full year 2015. The decrease to the net income per diluted share for the full year 2016 was largely due to the significant gains from suburban office building dispositions that were executed during 2015.
  • FFO, as defined by NAREIT, was $0.29 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2016, or $105 million, compared to $0.21 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2015. Similar to net income per diluted share, the increase to FFO, as defined by NAREIT, per common share was due to land impairment charges recognized during the fourth quarter of 2015. FFO, as defined by NAREIT, was $1.21 per diluted share, or $433 million, for the full year 2016 compared to $0.86 per diluted share for the full year 2015. FFO, as defined by NAREIT, increased from 2015 due to decreased losses on debt extinguishment as well as promote income related to the dissolution of an unconsolidated joint venture that was recognized during 2016.
  • Core FFO was $0.31 per diluted share, or $111 million, for the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to $0.29 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2015. Core FFO was $1.20 per diluted share, or $430 million, for the full year 2016 compared to $1.17 per diluted share for the full year 2015. Core FFO increased due to improved operational performance in 2016, partly offset by the impact to operating income that resulted from the significant property dispositions executed during 2015.

Real Estate Investment Activity

Development

Mr. Connor further stated, "We started $697 million of developments for the year and, for the fourth quarter, we started $242 million of developments, which were 96 percent pre-leased in total. We finished the year with a development pipeline totaling 9.4 million square feet with total expected project costs of $734 million, that was 69 percent pre-leased in total."

The fourth quarter included the following development activity:

Wholly Owned Properties

  • During the quarter, the company started $209 million of wholly owned bulk industrial development projects totaling 2.4 million square feet, which were 95 percent pre-leased in total. These wholly owned development starts were comprised of seven new industrial developments, which included a 100 percent pre-leased project in Chicago totaling 955,000 square feet, a 100 percent pre-leased project in Atlanta totaling 448,000 square feet and three 100 percent pre-leased projects in Washington DC.
  • The company also started a $19 million wholly owned medical office project during the quarter, totaling 37,000 square feet, which was 100 percent pre-leased.
  • One industrial project totaling 446,000 square feet, which was 53 percent occupied, was placed in service during the quarter. Additionally, two medical office projects, totaling 92,000 square feet, which were 100 percent leased, were also placed in service during the quarter.

Joint Venture Properties

  • During the quarter, a 50 percent-owned joint venture started a $14 million, 284,000 square foot, bulk industrial product in Indianapolis, which was 100 percent pre-leased.

Acquisitions

The company acquired 14 properties in Washington DC from an unconsolidated joint venture during the fourth quarter under the terms of an existing purchase option. The properties, of which eleven were industrial and three were suburban office, totaled 954,000 square feet and were 95 percent leased. One of the acquired properties, a 241,000 square foot suburban office property, was sold immediately upon its acquisition.

The company also acquired a 63 percent leased, 482,000 square foot, industrial property in Columbus from an unconsolidated joint venture during the fourth quarter.

Land Deployment

Deployment of a portion of the company's land bank, either through sales or development, took place as follows during the fourth quarter:

  • Dispositions of 303 acres of non-strategic land across several markets, with a sales price of $51 million and a combined net gain on sale of $7 million.
  • Utilization of 146 acres of wholly owned or jointly controlled land, with a combined basis of $44 million, for development projects.

Building Dispositions

Building dispositions for the full year totaled $686 million. Building dispositions totaled $196 million in the fourth quarter and included the following:

  • An 80,000 square foot suburban office property in Washington DC, which was 100 percent leased

Distributions Declared

The company's board of directors declared a quarterly cash distribution on its common stock of $0.19 per share, or $0.76 per share on an annualized basis. The fourth quarter dividend will be payable on February 28, 2017 to shareholders of record on February 16, 2017.

2017 Earnings Guidance

A reconciliation of the company's per share guidance for diluted net income per common share to FFO, as defined by NAREIT and to Core FFO is included in the financial tables to this release. The company issued guidance for net income of $0.38 to $0.59 per diluted share. The company issued guidance for FFO, as defined by NAREIT, of $1.18 to $1.30 per diluted share.

Commenting on the company's 2017 outlook, Mr. Connor stated, "We are introducing 2017 guidance for Core FFO of $1.21 to $1.27 per diluted share. Included in that guidance, is the continued reduction in income from service operations from 2016, as we continue to focus our efforts on wholly owned development and rental operations rather than third-party service fees. This has a short term dilutive effect on earnings but will create long term shareholder value through future NOI growth from the increased focus on development. Our 2017 Core FFO guidance would equate to over a five percent increase from 2016, after normalizing this negative impact from service operations. While still strong, our guidance for 2017 same property NOI growth is down a bit from 2016 due to our limited upside for occupancy growth, but we still believe total NOI growth will be strong in 2017 as new development projects are placed in service.

Our guidance for growth in Adjusted Funds from Operations ("AFFO"), on a share adjusted basis, ranges from 1.9 percent to 7.5 percent. The midpoint of our guidance for growth in AFFO, even after considering the impact from our service operations, equates to a consistent growth rate to what we recorded for 2016. Our development prospects for 2017 are very strong, but down a little bit from 2016 due to our large pipeline of fourth quarter development starts heading into 2017."

Key ranges for the assumptions underlying this updated guidance are as follows:

  • Dispositions in a range of $150 million to $350 million with proceeds used to fund acquisitions, new development opportunities and debt maturities;
  • Development starts in a range of $450 million to $650 million;
  • Growth in same property net operating income ranging from 2.5 percent to 4.3 percent;
  • Average in-service occupancy ranging from 96.0 percent to 97.0 percent;
  • Earnings from service operations ranging from $2 million to $4 million;
  • Effective leverage in a range of 40.0 percent to 36.0 percent;
  • Fixed charge coverage ratio, on a trailing 12 month basis, in a range of 3.7 times to 4.1 times;
  • Net debt to Core EBITDA, on a trailing 12 month basis, in a range of 5.8 times to 5.4 times.

More specific assumptions and components of our 2017 guidance will be available by 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time today through the Investor Relations 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; 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 generally accepted accounting principles ("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 benefits 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, gains (losses) on and related costs of acquisitions, gains on sale of merchant buildings, promote income 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 a supplemental performance measure 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 and expense, 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 utilizes same-property net operating income growth as a supplemental measure to evaluate property-level performance, and jointly-controlled properties are included at the company's ownership percentage.

A reconciliation of net income from continuing operations to same property net operating income is included in the financial tables to this release. A description of the properties that are excluded from the company's same-property net operating income measure is included on page 20 of its December 31, 2016 supplemental information.
