LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc. (the "Company" or "Hudson Pacific") (NYSE: HPP) today announced financial results for the third quarter 2018.

Management Comments & Industry Outlook

Victor Coleman, Hudson Pacific Properties' Chairman and CEO, said:

"The third quarter 2018 was our most productive quarter ever in terms of office leasing activity, capping our most successful four consecutive quarters of overall leasing. As our results demonstrate, fundamentals in West Coast innovation hubs remain among the best in the nation. We're seeing further rent growth and vacancy compression, and robust absorption driven by expanding tech and media companies. We're successfully addressing availabilities throughout our portfolio, and in the third quarter we signed nearly half-a-million square feet of leases at our priority, large block lease-up assets, including two full-building deals. In addition, we have renewed, backfilled, or are in leases, LOIs or proposals on 64% of our remaining fourth quarter 2018 and 55% of our remaining 2019 expirations.

"With third quarter's sale of Peninsula Office Park's remaining buildings, we have sold nearly half-a-billion of non-core assets this year into very strong investment markets. We are re-investing that capital into higher-potential value creation projects and properties, which will accelerate FFO growth in 2019 and beyond. This includes organic growth like EPIC, Harlow, and One Westside. It also includes disciplined external growth like the Ferry Building, which we purchased in the fourth quarter in a joint venture with Allianz Real Estate, where we expect significant upside through strategic re-leasing at market rents as well as our ability to drive more visitors and higher tenant demand."

Consolidated Financial & Operating Results

For third quarter 2018 compared to third quarter 2017:

  • Net income attributable to common stockholders of $17.4 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to $11.1 million, or $0.07 per diluted share;
  • FFO, excluding specified items, of $73.3 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, compared to $78.9 million, or $0.50 per diluted share;
    • Specified items consisting of transaction-related expenses of $0.2 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, compared to specified items consisting of transaction-related expenses of $0.6 million, or $0.00 per diluted share;
  • FFO, including specified items, of $73.1 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to $78.3 million, or $0.50 per diluted share;
  • Total revenue decreased 4.9% to $180.7 million;
  • Total operating expenses decreased 6.2% to $144.3 million;
  • Income from operations increased 0.6% to $36.4 million; and
  • Interest expense decreased 10.4% to $20.1 million.

Office Segment Results

Financial & operating

For third quarter 2018 compared to third quarter 2017:

  • Total revenue decreased 6.2% to $161.4 million, primarily due to a $9.2 million decrease in rental revenue to $130.0 million, a $0.4 million decrease in tenant recoveries to $24.6 million, and a $1.2 million decrease in parking and other revenue to $6.9 million. Factors include:
    • The sales of Pinnacle I and Pinnacle II (November 16, 2017), Embarcadero Place (January 25, 2018), 2180 Sand Hill (March 1, 2018), 9300 Wilshire (April 10, 2018) and Peninsula Office Park (July 27, 2018) as well as the anticipated Cisco and Robert Bosch lease terminations at Campus Center and Foothill Research Center, respectively;
  • Operating expenses decreased 3.1% to $57.3 million, also due to the aforementioned asset sales and lease terminations; and
  • Net operating income and cash net operating income for the 31 same-store office properties increased 3.2% and 2.5%, respectively. The cash basis comparison is muted by a $3.2 million one-time tenant improvement cost reimbursement received in 2017, which the Company excluded for purposes of both 2017 and 2018 same-store office cash net operating income growth guidance estimates. Adjusted for this one-time reimbursement, third quarter and year-to-date same-store office cash net operating income increased 7.6% and 4.3%, respectively.

Leasing

  • Stabilized and in-service office portfolio was 94.6% and 91.4% leased, respectively; and
  • Executed 55 new and renewal leases totaling 1,199,578 square feet with GAAP and cash rent growth of 28.4% and 12.0% respectively. Excluding the impact of the early Netflix renewal at ICON and CUE, GAAP and cash rents grew by 31.2% and 27.5%, respectively.

Studio Segment Results

Financial & operating

For third quarter 2018 compared to third quarter 2017:

  • Total revenue increased 7.9% to $19.3 million, largely due to a $0.7 million increase in rental revenue to $11.7 million, a $0.2 million increase in tenant recoveries to $0.3 million, and a $0.4 million increase in other property-related revenue to $7.0 million. Factors include:
    • The acquisition of 6605 Eleanor Avenue and 1034 Seward Street (June 7, 2018), higher rental revenue as Sunset Gower Studios relating to the Company's studio leases with Netflix, and increased production at Sunset Las Palmas and Sunset Gower Studios;
  • Total operating expenses decreased 0.7% to $10.5 million, primarily due to lower lighting expense at Sunset Bronson Studios; and
  • Net operating income and cash net operating income for the three same-store studio properties increased by 12.6% and decreased by 3.0%, respectively. The cash basis comparison is muted by a $0.7 million one-time tenant improvement cost reimbursement received in 2017. Adjusted for this one-time reimbursement, third quarter and year-to-date same-store studio cash net operating income increased 6.4% and 11.9%, respectively.

Leasing

  • Trailing 12-month occupancy for the same-store studio portfolio was 88.9%.

Leasing Activity

Record quarterly leasing activity across portfolio

  • Netflix leased all 302,102 square feet of the EPIC office development in Hollywood through mid-2031. Netflix is expected to occupy the building in phases beginning in early 2020.
  • Netflix also signed a coterminous lease extension for all 325,757 square feet of office space at ICON and all 91,953 square feet of office space at CUE, both located at Sunset Bronson Studios across the street from EPIC.
  • Honey Science Corporation leased all 131,701 square feet at the Fourth & Traction office redevelopment in the Los Angeles Arts District through May 2030. Honey will occupy the building in phases beginning in mid-2019 upon landlord's completion of tenant improvements.
  • Nutanix leased another 72,637 square feet at Concourse in North San Jose through May 2024, coterminous with its existing 58,714-square-foot lease in the building, and its 233,979 square feet of leases at 1740 Technology and Metro Plaza also in North San Jose.
  • Poshmark leased 50,327 square feet through May 2024 at Towers at Shore Center in Redwood City.

Acquisitions

One Westside/10850 Pico (formerly Westside Pavilion) contributed to joint venture

On August 31, 2018, Macerich contributed Westside Pavilion for $190.0 million, before prorations, credits and closing costs, into the 75/25% Hudson Pacific/Macerich joint venture, of which the Company serves as managing member. The joint venture defeased an existing $139.0 million loan in connection with the contribution by purchasing U.S. Government securities. Planning and entitlements are underway to convert the mall into an approximately 500,000-square-foot creative office campus called One Westside, while maintaining 95,987 square feet of adjacent entertainment and retail space at 10850 Pico. Estimated total project costs, inclusive of the asset value at contribution, are in the range of $425.0-475.0 million, with construction completion expected in mid-2021.

Dispositions

Sold remainder of Peninsula Office Park

On July 27, 2018, the Company sold Peninsula Office Park's remaining six buildings totaling 447,739 square feet in San Mateo for $210.0 million before credits, prorations and closing costs. The sale price represents a 5% premium to the Company's GAAP basis and a 14% premium to the Company's allocated purchase price. In January of this year, the Company sold a fully vacant, 63,050-square-foot building that was part of the Peninsula Office Park campus for $22.5 million before prorations, credits and closing costs. Net proceeds from this latest sale were used to repay $140 million outstanding under the Company's unsecured revolving credit facility, and then for general corporate purposes.

Balance Sheet

As of the end of the third quarter 2018:

  • $2.4 billion of total debt equivalent to a leverage ratio of 31.9% (includes preferred units).
  • Approximately $794.5 million of total liquidity comprised of:
    • $52.5 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents;
    • $490.0 million of undrawn total capacity under the unsecured revolving credit facility; and
    • $252.0 million of excess capacity on the Sunset Bronson/Gower construction loan.

Dividend

Paid common dividend

  • The Company's Board of Directors declared a dividend on its common stock of $0.25 per share, equivalent to an annual rate of $1.00 per share.
  • The dividends were paid on September 28, 2018 to stockholders of record on September 18, 2018.

Activities Subsequent to Third Quarter 2018

Further expanded top 15 tenant

  • Nutanix signed an additional lease for 80,489 square feet at Metro Plaza in North San Jose through May 2024.

Formed joint venture and purchased San Francisco Ferry Building

On October 9, 2018, a joint venture owned 55% by Hudson Pacific and 45% by Allianz Real Estate purchased a leasehold in the land and improvements of the iconic Ferry Building in San Francisco for $291.0 million before credits, prorations and closing costs. The Company serves as managing member of the joint venture and earns a management fee. The fully leased Ferry Building consists of 192,532 square feet of office and 75,486 square feet of retail. Office tenants include top-tier companies, such as SS&C Technologies, Meltwater, Meritage Group and Niantic. Retail contains a world-renowned public food market, with popular restaurants and retailers such as The Slanted Door and Blue Bottle Coffee. The joint venture intends to further enhance and drive revenue at the property by re-leasing space at market rents, introducing new amenities, activities and events, and capturing additional foot traffic associated with the Ferry Terminal expansion. This was an all-cash transaction and 49 years remain on the ground lease.

Acquired parcel strategic to Sunset Las Palmas Studios expansion

On October 23, 2018, the Company purchased an 11,200-square-foot office building at 6660 Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood adjacent to, and now part of, Sunset Las Palmas Studios for $10.0 million before credits, prorations and closings costs.

2018 Outlook

The Company is narrowing its full-year 2018 FFO guidance to a range of $1.84 to $1.88 per diluted share, excluding specified items, maintaining the $1.86 midpoint last provided on October 10, 2018 in connection with the Ferry Building acquisition announcement.

Specified items for full-year 2018 FFO guidance consist of $0.3 million of transaction-related expenses, a $0.4 million write-off of original issuance costs (i.e., deferred financing costs) associated with the Company's recast of its unsecured revolving credit facility and 5- and 7-year term loan facilities, and $0.9 million of unrealized gains from changes in fair value on non-real estate investments.

The full-year 2018 FFO estimates reflect management’s view of current and future market conditions, including assumptions with respect to rental rates, occupancy levels and the earnings impact of events referenced in this press release. It otherwise excludes any impact from future unannounced or speculative acquisitions, dispositions, debt financings or repayments, recapitalizations, capital markets activity or similar matters. There can be no assurance that the actual results will not differ materially from this estimate.

Below are some of the assumptions the Company used in providing this guidance (dollars in thousands):

Weighted average common stock/units outstanding—diluted(7)      

157,150,000

      158,150,000
 
1.     Same-store is defined as the 29 office properties or two studio properties, as applicable, owned and included in the Company's stabilized portfolio as of January 1, 2017, and anticipated to still be owned and included in the stabilized portfolio through December 31, 2018.
2. Please see non-GAAP information below for definition of cash NOI.
3. This estimate excludes approximately $4.2 million of material one-time tenant improvement cost reimbursements received in 2017, which were likewise excluded from prior year (2017) guidance for purposes of same-store office property cash NOI growth estimates. Please see the Same-Store Analysis in the Company's Fourth Quarter 2017 Supplemental Information report for further detail regarding these reimbursements.
4. Includes non-cash straight-line rent associated with the studio properties.
5. Includes non-cash compensation expense, which the Company estimates at $17,500 in 2018.
6. Includes amortization of deferred financing costs and loan discounts, which the Company estimates at $6,000 in 2018.
7. Diluted shares represent ownership in the Company through shares of common stock, OP Units and other convertible or exchangeable instruments. The weighted average fully diluted common stock/units outstanding for 2018 includes an estimate for the dilution impact of stock grants to the Company's executives under its 2016, 2017 and 2018 outperformance programs, as well as performance-based awards under the Company's special one-time retention award grants. This estimate is based on the projected award potential of such programs as of the end of such periods, as calculated in accordance with the Accounting Standards Codification 260, Earnings Per Share.
 

The Company does not provide a reconciliation for non-GAAP estimates on a forward-looking basis, including the information under "2018 Outlook" above, where it is unable to provide a meaningful or accurate calculation or estimation of reconciling items and the information is not available without unreasonable effort. This is due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing and/or amount of various items that would impact net income attributable to common stockholders per diluted share, which is the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measure. This includes, for example, acquisition costs and other non-core items that have not yet occurred, are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information. Forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures provided without the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures may vary materially from the corresponding GAAP financial measures.

1.     Hudson Pacific calculates FFO in accordance with the White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts. The White Paper defines FFO as net income or loss calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), excluding extraordinary items, as defined by GAAP, gains and losses from sales of depreciable real estate and impairment write-downs associated with depreciable real estate, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs and depreciation of non-real estate assets) and after adjustment for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The calculation of FFO includes the amortization of deferred revenue related to tenant-funded tenant improvements and excludes the depreciation of the related tenant improvement assets. The Company believes that FFO is a useful supplemental measure of its operating performance. The exclusion from FFO of gains and losses from the sale of operating real estate assets allows investors and analysts to readily identify the operating results of the assets that form the core of its activity and assists in comparing those operating results between periods. Also, because FFO is generally recognized as the industry standard for reporting the operations of REITs, it facilitates comparisons of operating performance to other REITs. However, other REITs may use different methodologies to calculate FFO, and accordingly, the Company's FFO may not be comparable to all other REITs.
 
Implicit in historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP is the assumption that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors and analysts have considered presentations of operating results for real estate companies using historical cost accounting alone to be insufficient. Because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, the Company believes that FFO along with the required GAAP presentations provides a more complete measurement of its performance relative to its competitors and a more appropriate basis on which to make decisions involving operating, financing and investing activities than the required GAAP presentations alone would provide. The Company uses FFO per share to calculate annual cash bonuses for certain employees.
 
FFO should not be viewed as an alternative measure of the Company's operating performance because it does not reflect either depreciation and amortization costs or the level of capital expenditures and leasing costs necessary to maintain the operating performance of the Company's properties, which are significant economic costs and could materially impact the Company's results from operations.

1.     Hudson Pacific evaluates performance based upon property NOI from continuing operations. NOI is not a measure of operating results or cash flows from operating activities as measured by GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to income from continuing operations, as an indication of the Company's performance, or as an alternative to cash flows as a measure of liquidity, or the Company's ability to make distributions. All companies may not calculate NOI in the same manner. Hudson Pacific considers NOI to be a useful performance measure to investors and management because when compared across periods, NOI reflects the revenues and expenses directly associated with owning and operating its properties and the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs, providing a perspective not immediately apparent from income from continuing operations. The Company calculates NOI as net income (loss) excluding corporate general and administrative expenses, depreciation and amortization, impairments, gains/losses on sales of real estate, interest expense, transaction-related expenses and other non-operating items. The Company defines NOI as operating revenues (including rental revenues, other property-related revenue, tenant recoveries and other operating revenues), less property-level operating expenses (which includes external management fees, if any, and property-level general and administrative expenses). NOI on a cash basis is NOI adjusted to exclude the effect of straight-line rent and other non-cash adjustments required by GAAP. Hudson Pacific believes that NOI on a cash basis is helpful to investors as an additional measure of operating performance because it eliminates straight-line rent and other non-cash adjustments to revenue and expenses.
