GREAT NECK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/14 -- BRT REALTY TRUST (NYSE: BRT) today announced operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2014.
Jeffrey A. Gould, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "BRT continues to execute on its multi-family property acquisition strategy. In April 2014, we acquired, with a joint venture partner, three multi-family properties with a total of 968 units. As of May 8, 2014, we own 24 multi-family properties (excluding a multi-family development property), with a total of 6,988 units."
Total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2014 were approximately $15.78 million, an increase of approximately $5.63 million, or 55.5%, from $10.15 million in the corresponding quarter in the prior year. The increase is due primarily to the $7.30 million increase in rental revenue from multi-family properties acquired since April 2013, partially offset by a $2.34 million decrease in interest and fees on real estate loans.
Total expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2014 were approximately $19.30 million, an increase of approximately $9.28 million, or 92.6%, from $10.02 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2013. Contributing to the increase were increases of $4.98 million in real estate operating expenses, $2.36 million of interest expense, and $1.77 million in depreciation and amortization -- a significant portion of these increases are due to the multi-family properties acquired since April 2013.
Net loss attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $2.59 million, or $0.18 per share, compared to net income of $1.01 million, or $0.07 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The change in results between the 2014 and 2013 periods is due primarily to the changes in total revenues and total expenses described above and the inclusion, in the 2013 period, of a $482,000 gain on sale of available-for-sale securities.
Funds from Operations; Adjusted Funds from Operations:
Funds from Operations ("FFO") was $134,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the current quarter, compared to $2.37 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013.
Adjusted Funds from Operations ("AFFO") was $561,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the current quarter, compared to $2.73 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013.
The decrease in FFO and AFFO is attributable to the net loss attributable to common shareholders described above, including the $2.42 million decrease in net income from BRT's real estate lending activities.
A reconciliation of net income to FFO and AFFO as presented in accordance with GAAP is provided with the financial information included later in this release.
At March 31, 2014, the Trust had $47.98 million of cash and cash equivalents, total assets of $633.99 million, total debt of $430.62 million and total BRT shareholders' equity of $133.87 million.
At April 30, 2014, after giving effect, among other things, to BRT's cash investment of approximately $17.7 million in acquiring three multi-family properties in April 2014, the Trust has approximately $26.7 million of cash and cash equivalents.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures:
In view of our equity investments in joint ventures which have acquired multi-family properties, BRT discloses FFO and AFFO because management believes that such metrics are a widely recognized and appropriate measure of the performance of an equity REIT.
BRT computes FFO in accordance with the "White Paper on Funds From Operations" issued by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") and NAREIT's related guidance. FFO is defined in the White Paper as net income (computed in accordance with generally accepting accounting principles), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus depreciation and amortization, plus impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures will be calculated to reflect funds from operations on the same basis. In computing FFO, BRT does not add back to net income the amortization of costs in connection with its financing activities or depreciation of non-real estate assets. Since the NAREIT White Paper only provides guidelines for computing FFO, the computation of FFO may vary from one REIT to another. BRT computes AFFO by deducting from FFO, straightline rent accruals and deferrals, adding back amortization of restricted stock compensation and amortization of costs in connection with financing activities, and adjusting for non-controlling interests.
Management believes that FFO and AFFO are useful and standard supplemental measures of the operating performance for equity REITs and are used frequently by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in evaluating equity REITs, many of which present FFO and AFFO when reporting their operating results. FFO and AFFO are intended to exclude GAAP historical cost depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, which assumes that the value of real estate assets diminish predictability over time. In fact, real estate values have historically risen and fallen with market conditions. As a result, management believes that FFO and AFFO provide a performance measure that when compared year over year, should reflect the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, interest costs and other matters without the inclusion of depreciation and amortization, providing a perspective that may not be necessarily apparent from net income. Management also considers FFO and AFFO to be useful in evaluating potential property acquisitions.
FFO and AFFO do not represent net income or cash flows from operations as defined by GAAP. FFO and AFFO should not be considered to be an alternative to net income as a reliable measure of our operating performance; nor should FFO and AFFO be considered an alternative to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities (as defined by GAAP) as measures of liquidity.
FFO and AFFO do not measure whether cash flow is sufficient to fund all of BRT's cash needs, including principal amortization and capital improvements. FFO and AFFO do not represent cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities as defined by GAAP.
Management recognizes that there are limitations in the use of FFO and AFFO. In evaluating BRT's performance, management examines GAAP measures such as net income and cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities. Management also reviews the reconciliation of net income to FFO and AFFO.
