Celebrates 10-year track record of strong returns to Unitholders since initial public offering ("IPO")

TORONTO, Nov. 6, 2023 /CNW/ - CT Real Estate Investment Trust ("CT REIT" or "the REIT") (TSX: CRT.UN) today reported its consolidated financial results for the third quarter ending September 30, 2023.

"Our Q3 2023 results represent another quarter of stability and consistency for CT REIT as we execute on our growth strategy during these volatile economic times," said Kevin Salsberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of CT REIT.

"We recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of CT REIT's IPO, and I am proud of our accomplishments over the past decade. Not only have we significantly grown our portfolio of properties, but we have also brought together a team of professionals with exceptional skills and capabilities that have contributed to our success. Our total returns and strong growth in earnings and net asset value ("NAV") are a testament to CT REIT delivering on its promise to provide unitholders with reliable, durable and growing results over time," added Mr. Salsberg.

10 Year Highlights1,2
Since its IPO on October 23, 2013, CT REIT has been one of Canada's premier net lease REITs and has delivered a total return to unitholders of 131%, outperforming both the S&P/TSX Composite and the S&P/TSX Capped REIT Indices, which have delivered total returns of 100% and 62%, respectively.

Over the last decade, CT REIT has added 117 properties, consisting of 11.4 million square feet, to the portfolio and has invested approximately $2.6 billion across 126 acquisitions (inclusive of certain lands adjacent to existing CT REIT properties), 22 development/redevelopment projects, 108 intensifications and ongoing developments. Additionally, the REIT has achieved compound annual growth rates of:

  • 5.44% in property revenue;
  • 7.03% in net operating income (non-GAAP);
  • 5.67% in AFFO per unit - diluted (non-GAAP);
  • (2.28)% net income per unit - diluted; and
  • 4.66% in book value per unit (NAV per unit).

CT REIT has declared increases in its distributions at least once every year since its IPO, increasing the rate of distributions by a total of 38% over this ten-year period, all while reducing its AFFO payout ratio from 95% to 74.8%.

Financial Highlights

Net Income – Net income was $11.3 million for the quarter, a decrease of $65.7 million or 85.3%, compared to the same period in the prior year, primarily due to a decrease in the fair value adjustment on investment properties, partially offset by an increase in net operating income.

Net Operating Income (NOI)* – Total property revenue for the quarter was $137.5 million, which was $4.3 million or 3.2% higher compared to the same period in the prior year. In the third quarter, NOI was $109.9 million, which was $3.7 million or 3.5% higher compared to the same period in the prior year. This was primarily due to the intensifications of income-producing properties completed in 2022 and 2023, which contributed $1.7 million to NOI growth, and rent escalations from Canadian Tire leases, which contributed a further $1.5 million. The recovery of capital expenditures and interest earned on the unrecovered balance also contributed $1.2 million to NOI growth in the quarter, which was partially offset by a decrease in property operating recoveries of $0.8 million.

Same store NOI was $106.6 million and same property NOI was $108.9 million for the quarter, which were $1.9 million or 1.8%, and $3.6 million or 3.4%, respectively, higher when compared to the prior year. Same store NOI increased primarily due to increased revenue derived from contractual rent escalations, and the recovery of capital expenditures and interest earned thereon. Same property NOI increased primarily due to the increase in same store NOI noted, as well as from the intensifications completed in 2022 and 2023.

Funds from Operations (FFO)* – FFO for the quarter was $77.1 million, which was $1.7 million or 2.2% higher than the same period in 2022, primarily due to the impact of NOI variances. FFO per unit - diluted (non-GAAP) for the quarter was $0.327, which was $0.006 or 1.9% higher, compared to the same period in 2022, due to the growth of FFO exceeding the growth in the weighted average units outstanding - diluted (non-GAAP).

Adjusted Funds from Operations (AFFO)* – AFFO for the quarter was $71.0 million, which was $2.4 million or 3.5% higher than the same period in 2022, primarily due to the impact of NOI variances. AFFO per unit - diluted (non-GAAP) for the quarter was $0.301, which was $0.009 or 3.1% higher, compared to the same period in 2022, due to the growth of AFFO exceeding the growth in the weighted average units outstanding - diluted (non-GAAP).

Distributions – Distributions per unit in the quarter amounted to $0.225, which was 3.5% higher than the same period in 2022 due to an increase in the rate of distributions which became effective with the monthly distributions paid in July 2023.

Operating Results

Leasing – CTC is CT REIT's most significant tenant. As at September 30, 2023, CTC represented 91.9% of total GLA and 91.3% of annualized base minimum rent.

Occupancy – As at September 30, 2023, CT REIT's portfolio occupancy rate, on a committed basis, was 99.1%.

*NOI, FFO and AFFO are Specified Financial Measures. See below for additional information.

Specified Financial Measures
CT REIT uses specified financial measures as defined by National Instrument 52-112 Non-GAAP and Other Financial Measures Disclosure of the Canadian Securities Administrators ("NI 52-112"). CT REIT believes these specified financial measures provide useful information to both management and investors in measuring the financial performance of CT REIT and its ability to meet its principal objective of creating unitholder value over the long term by generating reliable, durable and growing monthly cash distributions on a tax-efficient basis.

These specified financial measures used in this document include non-GAAP financial measures and non-GAAP ratios, within the meaning of NI 52-112. Non-GAAP financial measures and non-GAAP ratios do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS, also referred to as generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), and therefore they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures and ratios presented by other publicly traded entities and should not be construed as an alternative to other financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP.

See below for further information on specified financial measures used by management in this document and, where applicable, for reconciliations to the nearest GAAP measures.

Net Operating Income
NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as property revenue less property expense, adjusted for straight-line rent. The most directly comparable primary financial statement measure is property revenue. Management believes that NOI is a useful key indicator of performance as it represents a measure of property operations over which management has control. NOI is also a key input in determining the fair value of the portfolio of Properties. NOI should not be considered as an alternative to property revenue or net income and comprehensive income, both of which are determined in accordance with IFRS.

Funds From Operations
FFO is a non-GAAP financial measure of operating performance used by the real estate industry, particularly by those publicly traded entities that own and operate income-producing properties. The most directly comparable primary financial statement measure is net income and comprehensive income. FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income or cash flows provided by operating activities determined in accordance with IFRS. The use of FFO, together with the required IFRS presentations, has been included for the purpose of improving the understanding of the operating results of CT REIT.

Management believes that FFO is a useful measure of operating performance that, when compared period-over-period, reflects the impact on operations of trends in occupancy levels, rental rates, operating costs and property taxes, acquisition activities and interest costs, and provides a perspective of the financial performance that is not immediately apparent from net income determined in accordance with IFRS.

FFO adds back to net income items that do not arise from operating activities, such as fair value adjustments. FFO, however, still includes non-cash revenues related to accounting for straight-line rent and makes no deduction for the recurring capital expenditures necessary to sustain the existing earnings stream.

Adjusted Funds From Operations
AFFO is a non-GAAP financial measure of recurring economic earnings used in the real estate industry to assess an entity's distribution capacity. The most directly comparable primary financial statement measure is net income and comprehensive income. AFFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income or cash flows provided by operating activities determined in accordance with IFRS.

CT REIT calculates AFFO by adjusting FFO for non-cash income and expense items such as amortization of straight-line rents. AFFO is also adjusted for a reserve for maintaining the productive capacity required for sustaining property infrastructure and revenue from real estate properties and direct leasing costs. As property capital expenditures do not occur evenly during the fiscal year or from year to year, the capital expenditure reserve in the AFFO calculation, which is used as an input in assessing the REIT's distribution payout ratio, is intended to reflect an average annual spending level. The reserve is primarily based on average expenditures as determined by building condition reports prepared by independent consultants.

Management believes that AFFO is a useful measure of operating performance similar to FFO as described above, adjusted for the impact of non-cash income and expense items.

Capital Expenditure Reserve
The following table compares and reconciles recoverable capital expenditures during the 2022-2023 period to the capital expenditure reserve used in the calculation of AFFO:

The capital expenditure reserve is a non-GAAP financial measure and management believes the reserve is a useful measure to understand the normalized capital expenditures required to maintain property infrastructure. Recoverable capital expenditures are the most directly comparable measure that is disclosed in the REIT's primary financial statements. The capital expenditure reserve should not be considered as an alternative to recoverable capital expenditures, which is determined in accordance with IFRS.

The capital expenditure reserve varies from the capital expenditures incurred due to the seasonal nature of the expenditures. As such, CT REIT views the capital expenditure reserve as a meaningful measure.

FFO per unit - Basic, FFO per unit - Diluted (non-GAAP), AFFO per unit - Basic and AFFO per unit - Diluted (non-GAAP)
FFO per unit - basic, FFO per unit - diluted (non-GAAP), AFFO per unit - basic and AFFO per unit - diluted (non-GAAP) are non-GAAP ratios and reflect FFO and AFFO on a weighted average per unit basis. Management believes these non-GAAP ratios are useful measures to investors since the measures indicate the impact of FFO and AFFO, respectively, in relation to an individual per unit investment in the REIT. For the purpose of calculating diluted per unit amounts, diluted units include restricted and deferred units issued under various plans and exclude the effects of settling the Class C LP Units with Class B LP Units.

Management believes that FFO per unit ratios are useful measures of operating performance that, when compared period-over-period, reflect the impact on operations of trends in occupancy levels, rental rates, operating costs and property taxes, acquisition activities and interest costs, and provides a perspective of the financial performance that is not immediately apparent from net income per unit determined in accordance with IFRS. Management believes that AFFO per unit ratios are useful measures of operating performance similar to FFO as described above, adjusted for the impact of non-cash income and expense items. The FFO per unit and AFFO per unit ratios are not standardized financial measures under IFRS and should not be considered as an alternative to other ratios determined in accordance with IFRS. The component of the FFO per unit ratios, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is FFO, and the component of AFFO per unit ratios, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is AFFO.

Management calculates the weighted average units outstanding - diluted (non-GAAP) by excluding the full conversion of the Class C LP Units to Class B LP Units, which is not considered a likely scenario. As such, the REIT's fully diluted per unit FFO and AFFO amounts are calculated, excluding the effects of settling the Class C LP Units with Class B LP Units, which management considers a more meaningful measure.

AFFO Payout Ratio
The AFFO payout ratio is a non-GAAP ratio which is a measure of the sustainability of the REIT's distribution payout. Management believes this is a useful measure to investors since this metric provides transparency on performance. Management considers the AFFO payout ratio to be the best measure of the REIT's distribution capacity. The AFFO payout ratio is not a standardized financial measure under IFRS and should not be considered as an alternative to other ratios determined in accordance with IFRS. The component of the AFFO payout ratio, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is AFFO, and the composition of the AFFO payout ratio is as follows:

Same Store NOI
Same store NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure which reports the period-over-period performance of the same asset base having consistent GLA in both periods. CT REIT management believes same store NOI is a useful measure to gauge the change in asset productivity and asset value. The most directly comparable primary financial statement measure is property revenue. Same store NOI should not be considered as an alternative to property revenue or net income and comprehensive income, both of which are determined in accordance with IFRS.

Same Property NOI
Same property NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure that is consistent with the definition of same store NOI above, except that same property includes the NOI impact of intensifications. Management believes same property NOI is a useful measure to gauge the change in asset productivity and asset value, as well as measure the additional return earned by incremental capital investments in existing assets. The most directly comparable primary financial statement measure is property revenue. Same property NOI should not be considered as an alternative to property revenue or net income and comprehensive income, both of which are determined in accordance with IFRS.

Acquisitions, Developments and Dispositions NOI
Acquisitions, developments and dispositions NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure that is consistent with the definition of NOI above with respect to new property or dispositions of property not included in same property NOI. CT REIT management believes acquisitions, developments, and dispositions NOI is a useful measure to gauge the change in asset productivity and asset value. The most directly comparable primary financial statement measure is property revenue. Acquisitions, developments, and dispositions NOI should not be considered as an alternative to property revenue or net income and comprehensive income, both of which are determined in accordance with IFRS.
