"With substantial liquidity, enhanced by the equity forward we successfully completed in June, we're ideally positioned and motivated to dial up investment activity in the second half of the year."

 

QUARTERLY FINANCIAL RESULTS

Revenues

  • Total Company: Revenues, including reimbursable costs, for the 2020 second quarter totaled $290.5 million, down 4.8% from $305.2 million for the 2019 second quarter.
      
  • Real Estate: Real Estate revenues, including reimbursable costs, for the 2020 second quarter were $283.6 million, down 2.7% from $291.5 million for the 2019 second quarter. Lease revenues increased, primarily through the combined impact of net acquisitions, rent escalations and the conversion of certain self-storage operating properties to net leases commencing June 1, 2019, which was partly offset by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on rent collections during the 2020 second quarter. In addition to the conversion of self-storage properties to net leases, operating revenues also reflected the disposition of a hotel operating property in the 2020 first quarter. Lease termination and other income included an elevated level of lease-related settlements in the 2019 second quarter.
      
  • Investment Management: Investment Management revenues, including reimbursable costs, for the 2020 second quarter were $6.9 million, down 49.6% from $13.7 million for the 2019 second quarter, due primarily to lower asset management revenues resulting from the management internalization by CWI 1 and CWI 2.

Net Income Attributable to W. P. Carey

  • Net income attributable to W. P. Carey for the 2020 second quarter was $105.3 million, up 59.5% from $66.0 million for the 2019 second quarter. Net income from Investment Management attributable to W. P. Carey increased, due primarily to a non-cash net gain of $33.0 million recognized within equity earnings during the current year period upon the redemption of the Company's special general partner interests in CWI 1 and CWI 2 in connection with the CWI 1 and CWI 2 merger. Net income from Real Estate attributable to W. P. Carey increased, due primarily to the impact of net acquisitions and lower interest expense.

Adjusted Funds from Operations (AFFO)

  • AFFO for the 2020 second quarter was $1.14 per diluted share, down 6.6% from $1.22 per diluted share for the 2019 second quarter. AFFO from the Company's Real Estate segment (Real Estate AFFO) decreased due primarily to the impact of COVID-19 on rent collections during the 2020 second quarter, partly offset by the accretive impact of net investment activity and rent escalations. AFFO from the Company's Investment Management segment reflected the Company's continued move out of Investment Management through the management internalization by CWI 1 and CWI 2, resulting in lower asset management fees and distributions from the Company's special general partner interests, which was substantially offset by the reallocation of general and administrative expenses to the Company's Real Estate segment.

Note: Further information concerning AFFO and Real Estate AFFO, which are both non-GAAP supplemental performance metrics, is presented in the accompanying tables and related notes.

Dividend

  • As previously announced, on June 11, 2020 the Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $1.042 per share, equivalent to an annualized dividend rate of $4.168 per share. The dividend was paid on July 15, 2020 to stockholders of record as of June 30, 2020.

 

AFFO GUIDANCE

  • The Company's previous 2020 AFFO guidance remains withdrawn.

Amounts for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 include a non-cash net gain of $33.0 million (inclusive of $9.9 million attributable to the redemption of a noncontrolling interest that the former subadvisors for CWI 1 and CWI 2 held in the special general partner interests) recognized in connection with consideration received at closing of the CWI 1 and CWI 2 merger, which reflects the allocation of $34.3 million of goodwill within our Investment Management segment.

Amount for the three months ended June 30, 2020 is primarily comprised of realized gains on foreign currency exchange derivatives of $4.4 million and a net release of our allowance for credit losses reserve of $3.6 million.

(a)

Amounts for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 include a non-cash net gain of $33.0 million (inclusive of $9.9 million attributable to the redemption of a noncontrolling interest that the former subadvisors for CWI 1 and CWI 2 held in the special general partner interests) recognized in connection with consideration received at closing of the CWI 1 and CWI 2 merger, which reflects the allocation of $34.3 million of goodwill within our Investment Management segment.

(b) 

Equity income, including amounts that are not typically recognized for FFO and AFFO, is recognized within Equity in earnings of equity method investments in the Managed Programs and real estate on the consolidated statements of income. This represents adjustments to equity income to reflect FFO and AFFO on a pro rata basis.

(c) 

Amounts for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and six months ended June 30, 2020 include non-cash other-than-temporary impairment charges totaling $47.1 million recognized on our equity investments in CWI 1 and CWI 2.

(d) 

Adjustments disclosed elsewhere in this reconciliation are on a consolidated basis. This adjustment reflects our FFO or AFFO on a pro rata basis.

(e) 

FFO and AFFO are non-GAAP measures. See below for a description of FFO and AFFO.

(f) 

Amounts for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and six months ended June 30, 2020 include straight-line rent write-offs totaling $3.1 million, based on a collectibility analysis.

(g) 

AFFO amount for the three months ended June 30, 2020 is primarily comprised of a net release of our allowance for credit losses reserve of $3.6 million, gains from foreign currency movements of $3.4 million, unrealized loss on derivatives of $(1.4) million and loss on marketable securities of $(1.2) million. Real Estate AFFO amount for the three months ended June 30, 2020 is primarily comprised of a net release of allowance for credit losses reserve of $3.6 million, losses from foreign currency movements of $3.3 million and unrealized loss on derivatives of $(1.4) million. Amounts from period to period will not be comparable due to unpredictable fluctuations in these gains and losses.

(h) 

Amounts for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 include one-time taxes incurred upon the recognition of taxable income associated with the accelerated vesting of shares previously issued by CWI 1 and CWI 2 to us for asset management services performed, in connection with the CWI 1 and CWI 2 merger.

(i) 

Amounts for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and six months ended June 30, 2020 include a non-cash deferred tax benefit of $37.2 million as a result of the release of a deferred tax liability relating to our investment in shares of a cold storage operator, which converted to a REIT during that period and is therefore no longer subject to federal income taxes.

(j) 

Amounts for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and six months ended June 30, 2020 include a one-time tax benefit of $7.2 million as a result of carrying back certain net operating losses in accordance with the CARES Act, which was enacted on March 27, 2020.

(k) 

Beginning with the first quarter of 2020, this adjustment includes dividends received from CWI 1 and CWI 2 for AFFO (through April 13, 2020, the closing date of the CWI 1 and CWI 2 merger) and from WLT for both AFFO and Real Estate AFFO (after April 13, 2020) in place of our pro rata share of net income from our ownership of shares of CWI 1, CWI 2, and WLT, as applicable. We did not receive any such dividends during the second quarter of 2020, due to the adverse effect of COVID-19.

(l) 

Amount for the six months ended June 30, 2019 includes a current tax benefit, which is excluded from AFFO as it was incurred as a result of the CPA:17 Merger.

 

Non-GAAP Financial Disclosure

Funds from Operations (FFO) and Adjusted Funds from Operations (AFFO)

Due to certain unique operating characteristics of real estate companies, as discussed below, the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. (NAREIT), an industry trade group, has promulgated a non-GAAP measure known as FFO, which we believe to be an appropriate supplemental measure, when used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP, to reflect the operating performance of a REIT. The use of FFO is recommended by the REIT industry as a supplemental non-GAAP measure. FFO is not equivalent to, nor a substitute for, net income or loss as determined under GAAP.

We define FFO, a non-GAAP measure, consistent with the standards established by the White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of NAREIT, as restated in December 2018. The White Paper defines FFO as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains or losses from sales of property, impairment charges on real estate, gains or losses on changes in control of interests in real estate and depreciation and amortization from real estate assets; and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and jointly owned investments. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and jointly owned investments are calculated to reflect FFO.

We also modify the NAREIT computation of FFO to adjust GAAP net income for certain non-cash charges, such as amortization of real estate-related intangibles, deferred income tax benefits and expenses, straight-line rent and related reserves, other non-cash rent adjustments, allowance for credit losses, stock-based compensation, non-cash environmental accretion expense and amortization of deferred financing costs. 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 have no impact on cash flows. Additionally, we exclude non-core income and expenses, such as gains or losses from extinguishment of debt and merger and acquisition expenses. We also exclude realized and unrealized gains/losses on foreign currency exchange transactions (other than those realized on the settlement of foreign currency derivatives), which are not considered fundamental attributes of our business plan and do not affect our overall long-term operating performance. We refer to our modified definition of FFO as AFFO. We exclude these items from GAAP net income to arrive at AFFO as they are not the primary drivers in our decision-making process and excluding these items provides investors a view of our portfolio performance over time and makes it more comparable to other REITs that are currently not engaged in acquisitions, mergers and restructuring, which are not part of our normal business operations. AFFO also reflects adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and jointly owned investments. We use AFFO as one measure of our operating performance when we formulate corporate goals, evaluate the effectiveness of our strategies and determine executive compensation.

We believe that AFFO is a useful supplemental measure for investors to consider as we believe it will help them to better assess the sustainability of our operating performance without the potentially distorting impact of these short-term fluctuations. However, there are limits on the usefulness of AFFO to investors. For example, impairment charges and unrealized foreign currency losses that we exclude may become actual realized losses upon the ultimate disposition of the properties in the form of lower cash proceeds or other considerations. We use our FFO and AFFO measures as supplemental financial measures of operating performance. We do not use our FFO and AFFO measures as, nor should they be considered to be, alternatives to net income computed under GAAP, or as alternatives to net cash provided by operating activities computed under GAAP, or as indicators of our ability to fund our cash needs.
