W. P. Carey Announces Second Quarter Financial Results

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2011) - Investment firm W. P. Carey & Co. LLC (NYSE: WPC) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

QUARTERLY RESULTS

  • Funds from operations -- as adjusted (AFFO) for the second quarter of 2011 increased compared to the second quarter of 2010, to $72.8 million or $1.81 per diluted share from $38.9 million or $0.98 per diluted share, respectively.
  • Cash flow from operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2011 increased to $46.0 million compared to $36.3 million for the prior year period, while adjusted cash flow from operating activities increased to $55.9 million in the current year period compared to $48.2 million in the same period last year.
  • Total revenues net of reimbursed expenses for the second quarter of 2011 increased to $101.3 million from $55.2 million for the second quarter of 2010. Total revenues net of reimbursed expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2011 increased to $161.2 million from $102.8 million for the prior year period. Reimbursed expenses are excluded from total revenues because they have no impact on net income.
  • Net Income for the second quarter of 2011 was $79.1 million, compared to $23.4 million for the same period in 2010. For the six months ended June 30, 2011, net income was $102.5 million, compared to $37.8 million for the comparable period in 2010.
  • We received approximately $4.7 million in cash distributions from our equity ownership in the CPA® REITs for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. Additionally, in connection with the merger of CPA®:14 with and into a subsidiary of CPA®:16 - Global, we received $11.1 million from CPA®:14 as part of a special $1.00 per share cash distribution paid by CPA®:14 to all of its shareholders immediately prior to the merger.
  • Further information concerning AFFO and adjusted cash flow from operating activities -- non-GAAP supplemental performance metrics -- is presented in the accompanying tables.

CPA®:17 - GLOBAL ACTIVITY

  • On April 7, 2011, CPA®:17 - Global's follow-on offering was declared effective by the SEC, and its initial public offering was terminated. We have raised more than $1.7 billion on behalf of CPA®:17 - Global since beginning fundraising in December 2007. The follow-on offering is for up to an additional $1 billion of CPA®:17 - Global's common stock. From the beginning of the follow-on offering to date, we have raised $197.7 million.
  • Investment volume for our CPA® REITs in the second quarter of 2011 -- the majority of which was on behalf of CPA®:17 - Global -- was approximately $249 million.
  • Second quarter transactions included an $86 million acquisition of a 24 property portfolio of self storage facilities from A-American Self Storage, a $51 million acquisition of four industrial facilities leased to Flanders Corporation, and a $3 million acquisition of a self-storage asset in Fort Worth, Texas.
  • In the third quarter of 2011, CPA®:17 - Global agreed to provide $14.5 million of build-to-suit financing for an operations center and office facility in Martinsville, Virginia, which when completed will be leased to ICF International. CPA®:17 - Global also completed a $7 million acquisition of a land site in downtown Chicago, which will be leased to CRO-San Luis Development, LLC. The 14,000 square foot land site in the River North neighborhood will be the home of a Cantina Laredo restaurant, due to be completed and open in August.

CAREY WATERMARK INVESTORS ACTIVITY

  • To date, CWI has raised approximately $33 million in its initial public offering and closed its first transaction on May 5, 2011. The transaction is an $88 million joint venture with Ensemble Hotel Partners, LLC for two hotel properties located on the waterfront in Long Beach, California. The properties -- the Hotel Maya, a Doubletree by Hilton; and the Residence Inn by Marriott -- are the only waterfront hotels in the Long Beach market. CWI's investment is approximately $43.6 million, of which $20.8 million is equity.

MERGER OF CPA®:14 and CPA®:16 - GLOBAL

  • The merger of CPA®:14 with and into a subsidiary of CPA®:16 - Global closed on May 2, 2011. The transaction represents the thirteenth successful liquidation of a W. P. Carey fund since 1998 and provided CPA®:14 investors with an average annual return at liquidation of 8.96%.
  • This merger provides CPA®:16 - Global investors with a more diversified portfolio and an opportunity for increased cash flow.
  • Upon consummation of the CPA®:14/16 Merger, we earned revenues of $31.2 million in connection with the termination of the advisory agreement with CPA®:14, which we received in the form of restricted shares of CPA®:16 - Global common stock, and $21.3 million of subordinated disposition revenues.

ASSET MANAGEMENT ACTIVITY

  • As of June 30, 2011, the occupancy rate of our 14 million square foot owned portfolio was approximately 91%. In addition, for the 104 million square feet owned by the CPA® REITs, the occupancy rate was approximately 98%.

ASSETS UNDER OWNERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT

  • W. P. Carey is the advisor to the CPA® REITs and CWI, which had total assets of $9.2 billion as of June 30, 2011.
  • The W. P. Carey Group's assets under ownership and management total approximately $11.5 billion as of June 30, 2011 -- a 45% increase over the past five years.

DISTRIBUTIONS

  • The Board of Directors raised the quarterly cash distribution to $0.55 per share for the second quarter of 2011, equating to an annual rate of $2.20 per share. The distribution -- our 41st consecutive quarterly increase -- represents the largest quarterly increase to date and was paid on July 15, 2011 to shareholders of record as of June 30, 2011.

Trevor Bond, President and Chief Executive Officer, noted, "Our strong second quarter results continue to demonstrate the strengths of our fundraising, acquisitions and asset management teams. Our financial performance follows on our solid first quarter results. The increase in the company's cash distribution -- our largest quarterly increase to date -- is a testament to the strong cash flow that our business generates. The level of investment volume in the quarter highlights our continued ability to source attractive long term, income-generating investments on behalf of CPA®:17 - Global in an increasingly competitive investment environment. The closing of our first hotel investment on behalf of CWI launched our strategy of applying our established investment process on an opportunistic basis to capitalize on attractive investment opportunities in the hospitality sector.

"These accomplishments exemplify W. P. Carey's continuing commitment to growing our asset base and generating consistent cash flow to meet the needs and objectives of our investors."

Non-GAAP Financial Disclosure

EBITDA as disclosed represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We believe that EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure to investors and analysts for assessing the performance of our business segments, although it does not represent net income that is computed in accordance with GAAP, because it removes the impact of our capital structure and asset base from our operating results and because it is helpful when comparing our operating performance to that of companies in our industry without regard to such items, which can vary substantially from company to company. Accordingly, EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our financial performance. EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Therefore, we use EBITDA as one measure of our operating performance when we formulate corporate goals, evaluate the effectiveness of our strategies, and determine executive compensation.

(b) Represents gain recognized on purchase of the remaining interests in two ventures from CPA®:14, which we had previously accounted for under the equity method. In connection with purchasing these properties, we recognized a net gain of $27.1 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 to adjust the carrying value of our existing interests in these ventures to their estimated fair values.

Non-GAAP Financial Disclosure

Funds from operations (FFO) is a non-GAAP financial measure that is commonly used by investors and analysts in evaluating real estate companies. Although the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) has published a definition of FFO, real estate companies often modify this definition as they seek to provide financial measures that meaningfully reflect their operations. FFO or funds from operations -- as adjusted (AFFO) should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indication of a company's operating performance or to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of its liquidity but should be used in conjunction with GAAP net income. FFO or AFFO disclosed by other REITs may not be comparable to our AFFO calculation.

NAREIT's definition of FFO adjusts GAAP net income to exclude depreciation and gains/losses from the sales of properties and adjusts for FFO applicable to unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. We calculate AFFO in accordance with this definition and then include other adjustments to GAAP net income to adjust for certain non-cash charges such as amortization of intangibles, deferred income tax benefits and expenses, straight-line rents, stock compensation, impairment charges on real estate and unrealized foreign currency exchange gains and losses. We exclude these items from GAAP net income as they are not the primary drivers in our decision making process. Our assessment of our operations is focused on long-term sustainability and not on such non-cash items, which may cause short-term fluctuations in net income but that have no impact on cash flows, and we therefore use AFFO as one measure of our operating performance when we formulate corporate goals, evaluate the effectiveness of our strategies, and determine executive compensation. As a result, we believe that AFFO is a useful supplemental measure for investors to consider because it will help them to better understand and measure the performance of our business over time without the potentially distorting impact of these short-term fluctuations.

(a) We take a substantial portion of our asset management revenue in shares of the CPA(R) REIT funds. To the extent we receive distributions in excess of the equity income that we recognize, we include such amounts in our evaluation of cash flow from core operations.
(b) Represents noncontrolling interests' share of distributions made by ventures that we consolidate in our financial statements.
(c) Timing differences arising from the payment of certain liabilities and the receipt of certain receivables in a period other than that in which the item is recognized in determining net income may distort the actual cash flow that our core operations generate. We adjust our GAAP cash flow from operating activities to record such amounts in the period in which the item was actually recognized.
(d) Amounts represent termination and disposition revenue, net of costs and a 45% tax provision, earned in connection with the CPA(R):14/16 Merger. This revenue is generally earned in connection with events that provide liquidity or alternatives to the CPA(R) REIT shareholders. In determining cash flow generated from our core operations, we believe it is more appropriate to normalize cash flow for the impact of the net revenue earned in connection with the CPA(R):14/16 Merger.

Non-GAAP Financial Disclosure

Adjusted cash flow from operating activities refers to our cash provided by operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP, adjusted primarily to reflect timing differences between the period an expense is incurred and paid, to add cash distributions that we receive from our investments in unconsolidated real estate joint ventures in excess of our equity investment in the joint ventures, and to subtract cash distributions that we make to our noncontrolling partners in real estate joint ventures that we consolidate. We hold a number of interests in real estate joint ventures, and we believe that adjusting our GAAP cash provided by operating activities to reflect these actual cash receipts and cash payments may give investors a more accurate picture of our actual cash flow than GAAP cash provided by operating activities alone and that it is a useful supplemental measure for investors to consider. We also believe that adjusted cash flow from operating activities is a useful supplemental measure for assessing the cash flow generated from our core operations, and we use this measure when evaluating distributions to shareholders and as one measure of our operating performance when we determine executive compensation. Adjusted cash flow from operating activities should not be considered as an alternative to cash provided by operating activities computed on a GAAP basis as a measure of our liquidity. Adjusted cash flow from operating activities may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
