AGOURA HILLS, Calif., Aug. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- American Homes 4 Rent (NYSE: AMH) (the "Company"), a leading provider of high-quality single-family homes for rent, today announced its financial and operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Highlights

  • Total revenues increased 0.4% to $283.1 million for the second quarter of 2020 from $281.9 million for the second quarter of 2019.
  • Net income attributable to common shareholders totaled $15.4 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $22.5 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2019.
  • Core Funds from Operations ("Core FFO") and Adjusted Funds from Operations ("Adjusted FFO") attributable to common share and unit holders for the second quarter of 2020, which have not been adjusted to exclude the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, were $0.27 and $0.23 per FFO share and unit, respectively, compared to $0.28 and $0.25 per FFO share and unit, respectively, for the second quarter of 2019.
  • Experienced record demand, driving Same-Home portfolio Average Occupied Days Percentage to 95.6% in the second quarter of 2020, while achieving 4.4% rental rate growth on new leases.
  • Strong leasing momentum continues into the third quarter of 2020, with Same-Home portfolio Average Occupied Days percentage reaching an all-time high of 96.4% in July 2020.
  • Through July 2020, collected 96.5% of second quarter 2020 rents and 92% of July 2020 rents, which represents over 99% of second quarter 2020 payment history for the same time frame.

"We are pleased with our second quarter performance, which demonstrated the strength and resiliency of our operating platform in today's challenging times and highlights our ability to grow and deliver shareholder value in any economic cycle," said David Singelyn, American Homes 4 Rent's Chief Executive Officer. "Demand for our homes has never been stronger as our leasing and occupancy levels reached all-time highs during June and July. The COVID-19 crisis shined a light on the benefits of our homes as people are moving from high-density city living to single-family suburban communities. Amid this changing landscape, we are executing on our growth programs, including our proprietary AMH Development pipeline, to deliver additional housing in our high-growth markets. Our key competitive advantages – a diversified national portfolio, low leverage, investment grade balance sheet and technology enabled operating platform – have solidified our leadership position in the single-family rental industry."

COVID-19 Business Update

The Company has maintained continuity in business operations since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and produced strong operating results in the second quarter of 2020 demonstrating the flexibility of its technology enabled operating platform and the resiliency of its high-quality, diversified portfolio. Comprehensive remote working policies remain in place for all corporate and field offices, and operational protocols have been tailored based on state and local mandates to ensure continuity of services, while protecting employees, residents and their families. Additionally, during the second quarter of 2020, the Company waived late fees and month-to-month lease premiums, halted evictions for nonpayment of rent, and offered zero percent increases on newly signed renewals for leases expiring between April and July 2020.

Leasing and Collections Update

Driven by shifting housing preferences as households migrate away from city centers and apartments, the Company is experiencing record demand levels and reported its highest ever Same-Home portfolio Average Occupied Days Percentages in June and July 2020. A summary of the Company's Same-Home portfolio Average Occupied Days Percentages for the second quarter and July 2020 is as follows:

Additionally, as the Company entered the third quarter of 2020, it began a socially responsible return to normal operating practices, including the assessment of late fees, in jurisdictions where allowable, and modest renewal increases on expiring leases.

Collections continue to remain resilient with the Company recognizing revenue on 96.5% of its second quarter 2020 rental billings, all of which has been collected in cash through July 2020 without application of any existing resident security deposits or adjustment for deferred payment plans. As further second quarter 2020 collections are received, the associated revenue will be recognized in the applicable future period.

As we pursue additional collections, we are working closely with delinquent residents on a case-by-case basis to find the resolution that is best for the resident and the Company. Although minimal to date, workout options may include deferred payment plans which we began offering in June, or, where appropriate, early lease termination.

For the month of July, collections are tracking in line with the second quarter of 2020 as the Company collected 92% of July rents during July 2020, which represents over 99% of second quarter 2020 payment history for the same time frame.

Operating Expense Update

As a result of its technology enabled operating platform, the Company successfully adapted its maintenance protocols to be able to operate safely within the pandemic environment, delivering its full maintenance programs and ending the second quarter of 2020 without any deferred maintenance work orders. However, as a result of enhanced cleaning and safety protocols, the Company incurred $0.5 million of incremental repairs and maintenance ("R&M") and turnover costs within the second quarter of 2020, of which $0.4 million related to the Same-Home portfolio. Also included within second quarter 2020 R&M and turnover costs, net was $1.9 million of uncollectible tenant utility reimbursements associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, of which $1.8 million related to the Same-Home portfolio.

Additionally, due to abnormally high HVAC usage during stay-at-home orders, we experienced above average levels of HVAC system replacements resulting in $1.3 million of incremental HVAC capital expenditures within the second quarter of 2020, of which $1.2 million related to the Same-Home portfolio.

Although the Company has produced strong operating results to date during the COVID-19 pandemic, the extent to which the pandemic will ultimately impact us and our residents will depend on future developments which are highly uncertain. These include the scope, severity and duration of the pandemic, including potential resurgences, and the direct and indirect economic effects of the pandemic and containment measures, among others.

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Net income attributable to common shareholders totaled $15.4 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $22.5 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2019. This decrease was primarily attributable to increased uncollectible rents and tenant utility reimbursements related to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as higher property operating expenses and a reduction in gain on sale of single-family properties and other, net.

Total revenues increased 0.4% to $283.1 million for the second quarter of 2020 from $281.9 million for the second quarter of 2019. Revenue growth was driven by an increase in our average occupied portfolio which grew to 49,600 homes for the second quarter of 2020, compared to 48,989 homes for the second quarter of 2019, as well as higher rental rates, offset by an increase in uncollectible rents and tenant utility reimbursements related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Core NOI on our total portfolio decreased 3.6% to $148.4 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $154.0 million for the second quarter of 2019. This decrease was primarily due to increased uncollectible rents related to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as higher property tax expense and higher R&M and turnover costs, net due to increased uncollectible tenant utility reimbursements associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Core revenues from Same-Home properties were $212.0 million for both the second quarters of 2020 and 2019, driven by a 3.0% increase in rents from single-family properties, which was impacted by the Company's socially responsible decision to waive month-to-month lease premiums and offer zero percent increases on newly signed renewals for leases expiring throughout the quarter. This increase was offset by a:

  • 10 basis point drag from lower fees from single-family properties as the Company waived late fees throughout the quarter; and a
  • 290 basis point drag from higher bad debt, which increased to 3.5% of rents from single-family properties in the second quarter of 2020 from 0.7% of rents from single-family properties in the second quarter of 2019.

All rents from single-family properties recognized as revenue during the second quarter of 2020 have been collected in cash through July 2020. As further second quarter 2020 collections are received, the associated revenue will be recognized in the applicable future period.

Core property operating expenses from Same-Home properties increased 6.1% to $81.7 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $77.0 million for the second quarter of 2019, primarily driven by $2.2 million of incremental costs incurred during the second quarter of 2020 related to the COVID-19 pandemic including enhanced cleaning costs and increased uncollectible tenant utility reimbursements.

As a result, Core NOI from Same-Home properties decreased 3.4% to $130.4 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $135.0 million for the second quarter of 2019.

Core FFO attributable to common share and unit holders was $94.8 million, or $0.27 per FFO share and unit, for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $98.2 million, or $0.28 per FFO share and unit, for the second quarter of 2019. Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders was $81.6 million, or $0.23 per FFO share and unit, for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $86.8 million, or $0.25 per FFO share and unit, for the second quarter of 2019. These decreases were attributable to the negative financial impacts associated with the COVID-19 pandemic that relate to (i) the Company's socially responsible decisions to waive month-to-month lease premiums and offer zero percent increases on newly signed renewals for leases expiring throughout the second quarter of 2020, (ii) waived late fees throughout the second quarter of 2020, and (iii) $9.4 million of other negative financial impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic including $7.0 million of increased uncollectible rents, $1.9 million of increased uncollectible tenant utility reimbursements and $0.5 million of increased costs associated with enhanced cleaning and safety protocols. Additionally, due to stay-at-home orders during the COVID-19 pandemic, Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders includes above average levels of HVAC system replacements resulting in $1.3 million of incremental HVAC capital expenditures within the second quarter of 2020.

Year-to-Date 2020 Financial Results

Net income attributable to common shareholders totaled $35.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020, compared to $38.8 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019. This decrease was primarily attributable to increased uncollectible rents and tenant utility reimbursements related to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as higher property operating expenses and a noncash write-down included in other expenses associated with the liquidation of legacy joint ventures, which were acquired as part of the American Residential Properties, Inc. merger in February 2016.

Total revenues increased 2.1% to $572.7 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020 from $561.1 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019. Revenue growth was driven by an increase in our average occupied portfolio which grew to 49,322 homes for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020, compared to 48,600 homes for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019, as well as higher rental rates, offset by an increase in uncollectible rents and tenant utility reimbursements related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Core NOI on our total portfolio increased 0.3% to $305.4 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020, compared to $304.6 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019. This increase was primarily due to growth in rental income resulting from a larger number of occupied properties and higher rental rates, offset by an increase in uncollectible rents related to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as higher property tax expense and higher R&M and turnover costs, net due to increased uncollectible tenant utility reimbursements associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Core revenues from Same-Home properties increased 2.0% to $428.4 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020, compared to $420.1 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019. This growth was primarily driven by a 3.3% increase in Average Monthly Realized Rent per property, partially offset by an increase in uncollectible rents related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, core revenues from Same-Home properties for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020 were impacted by (i) the Company's socially responsible decisions to waive month-to-month lease premiums and offer zero percent increases on newly signed renewals for leases expiring throughout the second quarter of 2020 and (ii) waived late fees throughout the second quarter of 2020. Core property operating expenses from Same-Home properties increased 5.0% to $158.2 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020, compared to $150.6 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019, primarily driven by higher property tax expense and $2.2 million of incremental costs incurred during the second quarter of 2020 related to the COVID-19 pandemic including enhanced cleaning costs and increased uncollectible tenant utility reimbursements. As a result, Core NOI from Same-Home properties increased 0.2% to $270.2 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020, compared to $269.5 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019.

Core FFO attributable to common share and unit holders was $197.9 million, or $0.56 per FFO share and unit, for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020, compared to $194.0 million, or $0.55 per FFO share and unit, for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019. Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020 was $175.1 million, or $0.50 per FFO share and unit, compared to $173.6 million, or $0.49 per FFO share and unit, for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019. This improvement was primarily attributable to a larger number of occupied properties and higher rental rates, partially offset by the negative financial impacts associated with the COVID-19 pandemic that relate to (i) the Company's socially responsible decisions to waive month-to-month lease premiums and offer zero percent increases on newly signed renewals for leases expiring throughout the second quarter of 2020, (ii) waived late fees throughout the second quarter of 2020, and (iii) $9.4 million of other negative financial impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic including $7.0 million of increased uncollectible rents, $1.9 million of increased uncollectible tenant utility reimbursements and $0.5 million of increased costs associated with enhanced cleaning and safety protocols. Additionally, due to stay-at-home orders during the COVID-19 pandemic, Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders includes above average levels of HVAC system replacements resulting in $1.3 million of incremental HVAC capital expenditures within the second quarter of 2020.

Examples of forward-looking statements contained in this press release include, among others, our expectations with respect to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, our belief that our acquisition and homebuilding programs will result in continued growth, and the estimated timing of our development deliveries set forth in the Supplemental Information Package. The Company has based these forward-looking statements on its current expectations and assumptions about future events. While the Company's management considers these expectations to be reasonable, they are inherently subject to risks, contingencies and uncertainties, most of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond the Company's control and could cause actual results to differ materially from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.

Defined Terms

Average Blended Change in Rent
The percentage change in rent on all non-month-to-month lease renewals and re-leases during the period, compared to the annual rent of the previous expired non-month-to-month comparable long-term lease for each individual property.

Average Change in Rent for Re-Leases
The percentage change in annual rent on properties re-leased during the period, compared to the annual rent of the comparable long-term previous expired lease for each individual property.

Average Change in Rent for Renewals
The percentage change in rent on non-month-to-month comparable long-term lease renewals during the period.

Average Monthly Realized Rent
For the related period, Average Monthly Realized Rent is calculated as the lease component of rents and other single-family property revenues (i.e. rents from single-family properties) divided by the product of (a) number of properties and (b) Average Occupied Days Percentage, divided by the number of months. For properties partially owned during the period, this calculation is adjusted to reflect the number of days of ownership.

Average Occupied Days Percentage
The number of days a property is occupied in the period divided by the total number of days the property is owned during the same period. This calculation excludes properties classified as held for sale.

Occupied Property
A property is classified as occupied upon commencement (i.e., start date) of a lease agreement, which can occur contemporaneously with or subsequent to execution (i.e., signature).

Recurring Capital Expenditures
For our Same-Home portfolio, Recurring Capital Expenditures includes replacement costs and other capital expenditures recorded during the period that are necessary to help preserve the value and maintain functionality of our properties. For our total portfolio, we calculate Recurring Capital Expenditures by multiplying (a) current period actual Recurring Capital Expenditures per Same-Home property by (b) our total number of properties, excluding newly acquired non-stabilized properties and properties classified as held for sale.

Same-Home Property
A property is classified as Same-Home if it has been stabilized longer than 90 days prior to the beginning of the earliest period presented under comparison. A property is removed from Same-Home if it has been classified as held for sale or has been taken out of service as a result of a casualty loss.

Stabilized Property
A property acquired individually (i.e., not through a bulk purchase) is classified as stabilized once it has been renovated by the Company or newly constructed and then initially leased or available for rent for a period greater than 90 days. Properties acquired through a bulk purchase are first considered non-stabilized, as an entire group, until (1) we have owned them for an adequate period of time to allow for complete on-boarding to our operating platform, and (2) a substantial portion of the properties have experienced tenant turnover at least once under our ownership, providing the opportunity for renovations and improvements to meet our property standards. After such time has passed, properties acquired through a bulk purchase are then evaluated on an individual property basis under our standard stabilization criteria.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the Second Quarter 2020 Earnings Release and Supplemental Information Package include Funds from Operations attributable to common share and unit holders ("FFO attributable to common share and unit holders"), Core FFO attributable to common share and unit holders, Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders, Retained Cash Flow, Core NOI, Same-Home Core NOI and Same-Home Core NOI After Capital Expenditures, which are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these measures are helpful in understanding our financial performance and are widely used in the REIT industry. Because other REITs may not compute these financial measures in the same manner, they may not be comparable among REITs. In addition, these metrics are not substitutes for net income or loss or net cash flows from operating activities, as defined by GAAP, as measures of our operating performance, liquidity or ability to pay dividends. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in this press release and in the Second Quarter 2020 Earnings Release and Supplemental Information Package.

(1)

Core FFO and Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders include negative financial impacts associated with the COVID-19 pandemic that relate to (i) the Company's socially responsible decisions to waive month-to-month lease premiums and offer zero percent increases on newly signed renewals for leases expiring throughout the second quarter of 2020, (ii) waived late fees throughout the second quarter of 2020, and (iii) $9.4 million of other negative financial impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic including $7.0 million of increased uncollectible rents, $1.9 million of increased uncollectible tenant utility reimbursements and $0.5 million of increased costs associated with enhanced cleaning and safety protocols. Additionally, due to stay-at-home orders during the COVID-19 pandemic, Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders includes above average levels of HVAC system replacements resulting in $1.3 million of incremental HVAC capital expenditures within the second quarter of 2020.

(2)

Reflects the effect of potentially dilutive securities issuable upon the assumed vesting/exercise of restricted stock units and stock options.

FFO attributable to common share and unit holders is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate in accordance with the definition approved by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, which defines FFO as net income or loss calculated in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains and losses from sales or impairment of real estate, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs and depreciation of non-real estate assets), and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures to reflect FFO on the same basis.

Core FFO attributable to common share and unit holders is a non-GAAP financial measure that we use as a supplemental measure of our performance. We compute this metric by adjusting FFO attributable to common share and unit holders for (1) acquisition and other transaction costs incurred with business combinations and the acquisition or disposition of properties, (2) noncash share-based compensation expense, (3) hurricane-related charges, net, which result in material charges to the impacted single-family properties, and (4) gain or loss on early extinguishment of debt.

Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders is a non-GAAP financial measure that we use as a supplemental measure of our performance. We compute this metric by adjusting Core FFO attributable to common share and unit holders for (1) Recurring Capital Expenditures that are necessary to help preserve the value and maintain functionality of our properties and (2) capitalized leasing costs incurred during the period. As a portion of our homes are recently developed, acquired and/or renovated, we estimate Recurring Capital Expenditures for our entire portfolio by multiplying (a) current period actual Recurring Capital Expenditures per Same-Home Property by (b) our total number of properties, excluding newly acquired non-stabilized properties and properties classified as held for sale.

We present FFO attributable to common share and unit holders, as well as on a per FFO share and unit basis, because we consider this metric to be an important measure of the performance of real estate companies, as do many investors and analysts in evaluating the Company. We believe that FFO attributable to common share and unit holders provides useful information to investors because this metric excludes depreciation, which is included in computing net income and assumes the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time. We believe that real estate values fluctuate due to market conditions and in response to inflation. We also believe that Core FFO and Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders, as well as on a per FFO share and unit basis, provide useful information to investors because they allow investors to compare our operating performance to prior reporting periods without the effect of certain items that, by nature, are not comparable from period to period.

FFO shares and units include weighted-average common shares and operating partnership units outstanding, as well as potentially dilutive securities.

Retained Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that we believe is helpful as a supplemental measure in assessing the Company's liquidity. This metric is computed by reducing Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders by common distributions.

FFO, Core FFO and Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders and Retained Cash Flow are not substitutes for net income or net cash provided by operating activities, each as determined in accordance with GAAP, as a measure of our operating performance, liquidity or ability to pay dividends. These metrics also are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund future cash needs. Because other REITs may not compute these measures in the same manner, they may not be comparable among REITs.

Core Net Operating Income

Core NOI, which we also present separately for our Same-Home portfolio, is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that we define as core revenues, which is calculated as total revenues, excluding expenses reimbursed by tenant charge-backs and other revenues, less core property operating expenses, which is calculated as property operating and property management expenses, excluding noncash share-based compensation expense and expenses reimbursed by tenant charge-backs.

Core NOI also excludes (1) gain or loss on early extinguishment of debt, (2) hurricane-related charges, net, which result in material charges to the impacted single-family properties, (3) gain or loss on sales of single-family properties and other, (4) depreciation and amortization, (5) acquisition and other transaction costs incurred with business combinations and the acquisition or disposition of properties, (6) noncash share-based compensation expense, (7) interest expense, (8) general and administrative expense, (9) other expenses and (10) other revenues. We believe Core NOI provides useful information to investors about the operating performance of our single-family properties without the impact of certain operating expenses that are reimbursed through tenant charge-backs. We further adjust Core NOI for our Same-Home portfolio by subtracting Recurring Capital Expenditures to calculate Same-Home Core NOI After Capital Expenditures, which we believe provides useful information to investors because it more fully reflects our operating performance after the impact of all property-level expenditures, regardless of whether they are capitalized or expensed. 

Core NOI and Same-Home Core NOI After Capital Expenditures should be considered only as supplements to net income or loss as a measure of our performance and should not be used as measures of our liquidity, nor are they indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions. Additionally, these metrics should not be used as substitutes for net income or loss or net cash flows from operating activities (as computed in accordance with GAAP).

The following are reconciliations of core revenues, Same-Home core revenues, core property operating expenses, Same-Home core property operating expenses, Core NOI, Same-Home Core NOI and Same-Home Core NOI After Capital Expenditures to their respective GAAP metrics for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 (amounts in thousands):
