Tanger Reports First Quarter 2017 Results

Company Release - 5/1/2017 5:28 PM ET

GREENSBORO, N.C., May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. (NYSE: SKT) today reported financial and operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2017. 

Financial Results and Key Highlights for the Quarter

  • Raised regular quarterly common share cash dividend on April 6, 2017 by 5.4% on an annualized basis to $1.37 per share, marking the 24th consecutive year of increased dividends
  • Net income available to common shareholders was $0.23 per share, or $22.0 million, compared to $0.28 per share, or $26.9 million, for the first quarter of 2016. During the first quarter of 2016, net income available to common shareholders was positively impacted by a $0.05 per share, or $4.9 million, gain on the sale of an outlet center.
  • Funds from operations ("FFO") available to common shareholders increased 5.5% to $0.58 per share, or $57.7 million, from $0.55 per share, or $54.7 million, for the first quarter of 2016.
  • Adjusted funds from operations ("AFFO") available to common shareholders, which excludes certain items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance, increased 3.6% to $0.58 per share, or $58.3 million, from $0.56 per share, or $55.8 million, for the first quarter of 2016.
  • Same center net operating income ("Same Center NOI") increased for the 54th consecutive quarter
  • FFO, AFFO, and Same Center NOI, which do not include the gain that positively impacted 2016 net income, are widely accepted supplemental non-GAAP financial measures used in the real estate industry to measure and compare the operating performance of real estate companies. A complete definition of Same Center NOI and complete reconciliations containing adjustments from GAAP net income to FFO, AFFO and Same Center NOI are included in this release. Net income, FFO and AFFO per share are on a diluted basis.

"Outlets remain a very important and profitable channel of distribution for brand name and designer retailers and manufacturers, as evidence by our high level of occupancy.  Our consolidated portfolio was 96.2% occupied as of March 31, 2017 despite having recaptured 324,000 square feet of space since the beginning of  2015 related to bankruptcies and brand-wide restructurings by retailers.  During the first quarter of 2017 we extended our record to 54 consecutive quarters of consolidated portfolio same center net operating income growth.  We are pleased with these achievements notwithstanding the challenging environment for retailers," commented Steven B. Tanger, President & Chief Executive Officer.  "Given solid retailer demand for outlet space and our fortress balance sheet, Tanger is positioned to weather current headwinds and store closings in the retail environment, as we have successfully in similar parts of the cycle for the past 36 years," he added.

Operating Metrics

  • Blended average base rental rates increased 8.4% on 206 leases totaling approximately 1,014,000 square feet renewed or released throughout the consolidated portfolio during the first quarter
  • Excluding seven leases with an average suite size of approximately 19,700 square feet, blended average base rental rates increased 13.8% on 199 leases totaling approximately 876,000 square feet renewed or released throughout the consolidated portfolio during the first quarter
  • Consolidated portfolio occupancy rate was 96.2% on March 31, 2017, compared to 96.6% on March 31, 2016
  • Average tenant sales productivity for the consolidated portfolio was $380 per square foot for the twelve months ended March 31, 2017, compared to $401 per square foot for the twelve months ended March 31, 2016
  • Same center tenant sales performance for the twelve months ended March 31, 2017 decreased 3.5% for the consolidated portfolio, and decreased 2.4% for the overall portfolio, compared to the twelve months ended March 31, 2016

As expected, re-merchandising activity at several Tanger Outlet Centers impacted rent spreads.  The 138,000 square feet re-tenanted with exciting high-volume retailers required the consolidation of 22 storefronts with an average size of 6,300 square feet to create 7 new storefronts with an average size of approximately 19,700 square feet.  Although these sought-after tenants typically require a lower relative cost of occupancy, re-merchandising with the high-volume brands that resonate with the consumer has been a successful long-term strategy for Tanger for more than 36 years.  Enhancing the tenant mix has historically increased shopper traffic, driven demand from additional tenants, and increased future renewal spreads and overall tenant sales productivity.

Tanger recaptured approximately 62,000 square feet within its consolidated portfolio during the first quarter of 2017 related to bankruptcies and brand-wide restructurings by retailers, compared to approximately 45,000 square feet during the first quarter of 2016.  Tanger recaptured a total of 105,000 square feet and 157,000 square feet during 2016 and 2015, respectively within the consolidated portfolio related to bankruptcies and brand-wide restructurings by retailers.

Average tenant sales productivity for the consolidated portfolio was negatively impacted as a result of one fewer shopping day compared to the prior trailing twelve month period, which included a leap day, and by the shift in the Easter holiday.  The trailing twelve months ended March 31, 2016 included two Easter holidays (April 5, 2015 and March  27, 2016), providing a difficult comparison period for the trailing twelve months ended March 31, 2017, which did not include an Easter holiday (April 16, 2017).  Unlike other retail venues that are largely located in-market, many of the outlet centers in Tanger's portfolio are located in drive-to vacation destinations, which the Company believes results in a more pronounced impact of the Easter shift.

Tanger Outlets Foxwoods and Tanger Outlets Southaven (Memphis) were included in the consolidated portfolio productivity metric for the first time for the trailing twelve month period ended March 31, 2017.   Average tenant sales productivity also reflects the dilution of these two newly stabilized centers, as the productivity of new centers typically does not exceed the average productivity for the remaining portfolio, which is comprised largely of mature assets.  Average tenant sales productivity includes stabilized outlet centers and are based on all reporting retailers leasing stores less than 20,000 square feet in size which have occupied such stores for a minimum of twelve months.

The Company continues to have the lowest cost of occupancy among all mall REITs.  The Company believes that outlet stores remain a profitable and important division for most of its tenants.

Same Center and Portfolio NOI

  • Excluding seven centers undergoing major re-merchandising projects, portfolio net operating income ("Portfolio NOI") increased 13.9% during the first quarter
                  
  • Including these centers, Portfolio NOI for the consolidated portfolio increased 10.9% during the first quarter
                      
  • Excluding seven centers undergoing major re-merchandising projects, Same Center NOI for the consolidated portfolio increased 2.5% during the first quarter
                         
  • Including these centers, Same Center NOI for the consolidated portfolio increased 1.0% during the first quarter, marking the 54th consecutive quarter of Same Center NOI growth
                      
  • Lease termination fees, which are excluded from Same Center NOI and Portfolio NOI, in the consolidated portfolio for the first quarter of 2017 and 2016 totaled $1.2 million and $0.6 million, respectively. In addition, Tanger's share of lease termination fees in its unconsolidated joint ventures, which is included in equity in earnings of unconsolidated joint ventures, totaled $45,000 and $0.4 million for the first quarter of 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Same Center NOI and Portfolio NOI are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures of our operating performance.  Complete definitions of Same Center NOI and Portfolio NOI and a reconciliation to the nearest comparable GAAP measure are included in this release.

Investment Activities

Construction is ongoing for two wholly-owned development projects expected to be completed in 2017, including:

  • Lancaster, Pennsylvania - a 123,000 square foot expansion scheduled to open in September 2017
  • Fort Worth, Texas - a new 352,000 square foot outlet center scheduled to open in late October 2017
  • Combined, these projects represent a total investment of approximately $137.9 million with an expected weighted average stabilized yield of approximately 9.3%
  • As of March 31, 2017, $89.7 million of the Company's expected net capital requirement remained to be funded

Pre-development and pre-leasing efforts are ongoing for other projects in the Company's shadow pipeline of development opportunities.  The Company's long-standing disciplined development approach remains intact.  Tanger's underwriting practice requires achievement of a minimum pre-leasing threshold and receipt of all non-appealable permits prior to acquisition of land or commencement of construction.  Given current market conditions, the Company elected to terminate its purchase option for a pre-development stage project near Detroit, Michigan, which resulted in a $627,000 charge to abandoned pre-development costs during the first quarter of 2017.  The Company does not anticipate any additional charges this year. 

Period-End Balance Sheet Summary

  • Raised common dividend for the 24th consecutive year on April 6, 2017
  • Debt-to-total market capitalization ratio was 34%
  • Total outstanding floating rate debt was $202 million, representing less than 12% of total debt outstanding, or about 4% of total enterprise value
  • Unused capacity was $448 million under the Company's $520 million unsecured lines of credit
  • Weighted average interest rate was 3.72%
  • Weighted average term to maturity was approximately 5.7 years
  • Approximately 92% of the Company's consolidated square footage was unencumbered by mortgages
  • Interest coverage ratio was 4.22 times for the first quarter of 2017, compared to 4.12 times for the first quarter of 2016

Earnings Guidance for 2017

As a result of the challenging retail environment, the Company is revising its net income, FFO, and AFFO per share guidance for 2017 to the following:

For the year ended December 31, 2017:




Low Range

High Range

Estimated diluted net income per share

$1.04

$1.09

Noncontrolling interest, depreciation and amortization




of real estate assets including noncontrolling interest




share and our share of unconsolidated joint ventures

1.36

1.36

Estimated diluted FFO per share

$2.40

$2.45

AFFO adjustments per share

0.00

0.00

Estimated diluted AFFO per share

$2.40

$2.45

This new AFFO per share guidance represents growth of 1.3% to 3.4% over 2016 AFFO per share and includes a $0.06 per share increase in interest expense.  Excluding this dilutive impact, the new AFFO per share guidance would represent growth of 3.6% to 5.7%.

Tanger is also revising its guidance for consolidated portfolio Same Center NOI growth to a range of approximately 1.5% to 3.0% excluding the impact of re-merchandising at several of the Company's outlet centers.  Including these centers, Tanger is updating its Same Center NOI guidance to a range of approximately 0.5% to 2.0% based on the following factors:

  • The primary drivers of the current Same Center NOI growth expectations is attributable to delayed store openings expectations and incremental unexpected store closings relative to the Company's previous forecast. Currently the Company expects average occupancy for the full year to be approximately 96%, compared to actual 2016 average occupancy of 97%.
                             
  • To a lesser extent, lease modifications and reduced percentage rents are now reflected in Tanger's current forecast.
                                  
  • These factors are partially offset by approximately $1 million in incremental operating expense savings not reflected in the Company's previous forecast.

Lease termination fees, which are not included in Same Center NOI, help offset, and may more than offset, the impact of rent loss from expected store closings.  The amount and timing of lease termination fees can be volatile and difficult to predict.  Tanger's current 2017 guidance is based on $2.3 million of forecasted lease termination fees for the full year, including $1.1 million expected to be recognized during the second quarter.  The Company's previous guidance assumed no lease termination fees.

Other key guidance assumptions, all of which are unchanged from Tanger's initial guidance, are as follows:

  • Average general and administrative expense of between $11.2 million and $11.7 million per quarter
                            
  • 2017 weighted average diluted common shares of approximately 95.7 million for net income and 100.7 million for FFO and AFFO per share
                              
  • Does not include the impact of any financing activity, the sale of any outparcels, properties or joint ventures interests, or the acquisition of any properties or joint venture partner interests

NON-GAAP SUPPLEMENTAL MEASURES

Funds From Operations

Funds From Operations ("FFO") is a widely used measure of the operating performance for real estate companies that supplements net income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP.  We determine FFO based on the definition set forth by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"), of which we are a member. FFO represents net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) before extraordinary items and gains (losses) on sale or disposal of depreciable operating properties, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, impairment losses on depreciable real estate of consolidated real estate and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures, including depreciation and amortization, and impairment losses on investments in unconsolidated joint ventures driven by a measurable decrease in the fair value of depreciable real estate held by the unconsolidated joint ventures.

FFO is intended to exclude historical cost depreciation of real estate as required by GAAP which assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes ratably over time. Historically, however, real estate values have risen or fallen with market conditions. Because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, gains and losses from property dispositions and extraordinary items, it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, reflects the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, development activities and interest costs, providing perspective not immediately apparent from net income.

We present FFO because we consider it an important supplemental measure of our operating performance.  In addition, a portion of cash bonus compensation to certain members of management is based on our FFO or Adjusted Funds From Operations ("AFFO"), which is described in the section below. We believe it is useful for investors to have enhanced transparency into how we evaluate our performance and that of our management.  In addition, FFO is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their results. FFO is also widely used by us and others in our industry to evaluate and price potential acquisition candidates.  NAREIT has encouraged its member companies to report their FFO as a supplemental, industry-wide standard measure of REIT operating performance.

FFO has significant limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • FFO does not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements, for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • FFO does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and FFO does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
  • FFO, which includes discontinued operations, may not be indicative of our ongoing operations; and
  • Other companies in our industry may calculate FFO differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, FFO should not be considered as a measure of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business or our dividend paying capacity. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using FFO only as a supplemental measure.

Adjusted Funds From Operations

We present AFFO as a supplemental measure of our performance.  We define AFFO as FFO further adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance.  These further adjustments are itemized in the table below.  You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons we consider them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating AFFO you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. Our presentation of AFFO should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.

We present AFFO because we believe it assists investors and analysts in comparing our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. In addition, we believe it is useful for investors to have enhanced transparency into how we evaluate management's performance and the effectiveness of our business strategies.  We use AFFO when certain material, unplanned transactions occur as a factor in evaluating management's performance and to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies, and may use AFFO when determining incentive compensation.

AFFO has limitations as an analytical tool. Some of these limitations are:

  • AFFO does not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements, for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • AFFO does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and AFFO does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
  • AFFO does not reflect the impact of certain cash charges resulting from matters we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations; and
  • Other companies in our industry may calculate AFFO differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, AFFO should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using AFFO only as a supplemental measure.

Portfolio Net Operating Income and Same Center Net Operating Income

We present portfolio net operating income ("Portfolio NOI") and same center net operating income ("Same Center NOI") as supplemental measures of our operating performance.  Portfolio NOI represents our property level net operating income which is defined as total operating revenues less property operating expenses and excludes termination fees and non-cash adjustments including straight-line rent, net above and below market rent amortization and gains or losses on the sale of outparcels recognized during the periods presented. We define Same Center NOI as Portfolio NOI for the properties that were operational for the entire portion of both comparable reporting periods and which were not acquired or subject to a material expansion or non-recurring event, such as a natural disaster, during the comparable reporting periods.

We believe Portfolio NOI and Same Center NOI are non-GAAP metrics used by industry analysts, investors and management to measure the operating performance of our properties because they provide performance measures directly related to the revenues and expenses involved in owning and operating real estate assets and provide a perspective not immediately apparent from net income, FFO or AFFO.  Because Same Center NOI  excludes properties developed, redeveloped, acquired and sold; as well as non-cash adjustments, gains or losses on the sale of outparcels and termination rents; it highlights operating trends such as occupancy levels, rental rates and operating costs on properties that were operational for both comparable periods. Other REITs may use different methodologies for calculating Portfolio NOI and Same Center NOI, and accordingly, our Portfolio NOI and Same Center NOI may not be comparable to other REITs.

Portfolio NOI and Same Center NOI should not be considered alternatives to net income (loss) or as an indicator of our financial performance since  they do not reflect the entire operations of our portfolio, nor do they reflect the impact of general and administrative expenses, acquisition-related expenses, interest expense, depreciation and amortization costs, other non-property income and losses, the level of capital expenditures and leasing costs necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties, or trends in development and construction activities which are significant economic costs and activities that could materially impact our results from operations. Because of these limitations, Portfolio NOI and Same Center NOI should not be viewed in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using Portfolio NOI and Same Center NOI only as supplemental measures.
