CIM Commercial Trust Corporation Reports 2019 Fourth Quarter Results

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CIM Commercial Trust Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCT and TASE: CMCT-L) ("we", "our", “CMCT”, “CIM Commercial”, or the "Company"), a real estate investment trust ("REIT") that primarily acquires, owns, and operates Class A and creative office assets in vibrant and improving metropolitan communities throughout the United States, today reported operating results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019.

Fourth Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Annualized rent per occupied square foot(1) on a same-store(2) basis increased 9.7% to $48.18 as of December 31, 2019 compared to $43.91 as of December 31, 2018.
  • Our same-store(2) office portfolio was 87.0% leased as of December 31, 2019 compared to 96.7% as of December 31, 2018. The decrease is primarily due to the repositioning of an office property in Los Angeles, California.
  • During the fourth quarter of 2019, we executed 27,956 square feet of leases with terms longer than 12 months, which were all recurring leases executed at our same-store(2) office portfolio, representing same-store(2) cash rent growth per square foot of 7.1%.
  • Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $11,573,000, or $0.79 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $4,948,000, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • Same-store(2) office segment net operating income(3) ("NOI") decreased 12.4%, while same-store(2) office cash NOI(4) decreased 15.2%, for the fourth quarter of 2019 as compared to the corresponding period in 2018. The decrease in same-store(2) office cash NOI(4) is primarily due to the repositioning of an office property in Los Angeles, California.
  • Funds from operations (“FFO”) attributable to common stockholders(5) was $(6,194,000), or $(0.42) per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $8,497,000, or $0.58 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • Core FFO attributable to common stockholders(6) was $(346,000), or $(0.02) per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $9,625,000, or $0.66 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2018.

Management Commentary

"2019 was a transformational year for CIM Commercial as we took aggressive steps to deliver to shareholders the value created in our real estate portfolio and significantly increased both the public float of our common stock and the economic interests of insiders in our common stock,” said David Thompson, CMCT’s Chief Executive Officer.

“Our immediate focus is on executing three expected high return, value-add projects that will begin contributing to the Company's cash flow in 2021. We also expect to benefit from contractual rent increases and from increasing below-market in-place leases to market rates.

Our high-quality portfolio is well located in high barrier to entry markets that are demonstrating strong office fundamentals and rent growth. We will continue to actively manage our portfolio through ongoing hold/sell analysis to ensure each asset fits our overall strategy and we seek to improve our tenant diversification.”

2019 Program to Unlock Embedded Value in Our Portfolio and Improve Trading Liquidity of Our Common Stock

During 2019, we sold ten properties at an aggregate gross sales of approximately $991.0 million and paid a special cash dividend of approximately $613.3 million ($42.00 per share of common stock). In addition, during the third quarter of 2019, the former indirect principal stockholder of CIM Commercial, a private fund, distributed 10.6 million shares of CMCT common stock (representing 72.8% of the outstanding shares at the time) to 19 of its institutional investors.

Following this transaction, an affiliate of CIM Group, L.P., an affiliate of CIM Commercial, acquired 2,468,390 shares of common stock of CIM Commercial for $19.1685 per share from a related party in a private transaction. As of March 12, 2020, CIM Group, its affiliates, and officers and directors of CIM Commercial have an aggregate economic interest in approximately 19.6% of the outstanding shares of CIM Commercial common stock.

Guidance

The Company anticipates announcing financial guidance once there is greater certainty as to the magnitude of the adverse impact from the COVID-19 outbreak.

Financial Highlights

As of December 31, 2019, our real estate portfolio consisted of 11 assets, all of which were fee-simple properties. The portfolio included 9 office properties (including one development site, which is being used as a parking lot), totaling approximately 1.3 million rentable square feet, and one hotel, with an ancillary parking garage, which has 503 rooms. We also own and operate a lending business.

Fourth Quarter 2019

Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $11,573,000, or $0.79 per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $4,948,000, or $0.34 per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended December 31, 2018. The increase is primarily attributable to a decrease of $15,051,000 in segment NOI(3), an increase of $5,875,000 in redeemable preferred stock redemptions primarily related to the Series L preferred stock tender offer and an increase of $339,000 in general and administrative expenses not allocated to our operating segments, partially offset by a decrease of $8,066,000 in depreciation and amortization, a decrease of $3,344,000 in interest expense not allocated to our operating segments, a decrease of $1,905,000 in asset management and other fees to related parties not allocated to our operating segments, a decrease of $808,000 in loss on early extinguishment of debt and a decrease of $605,000 in transaction costs.

FFO attributable to common stockholders(5) was $(6,194,000), or $(0.42) per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $8,497,000, or $0.58 per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended December 31, 2018. The decrease in FFO attributable to common stockholders(5) is primarily attributable to a decrease of $15,051,000 in segment NOI(3), an increase of $5,875,000 in redeemable preferred stock redemptions primarily related to the Series L preferred stock tender offer and an increase of $339,000 in general and administrative expenses not allocated to our operating segments, partially offset by a decrease of $3,344,000 in interest expense not allocated to our operating segments, a decrease of $1,905,000 in asset management and other fees to related parties not allocated to our operating segments, a decrease of $808,000 in loss on early extinguishment of debt and a decrease of $605,000 in transaction costs.

Core FFO attributable to common stockholders(6) was $(346,000), or $(0.02) per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $9,625,000, or $0.66 per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended December 31, 2018. The decrease in core FFO attributable to common stockholders(6) is primarily attributable to a decrease of $15,051,000 in segment NOI(3) and an increase of $339,000 in general and administrative expenses not allocated to our operating segments, partially offset by a decrease of $3,344,000 in interest expense not allocated to our operating segments and a decrease of $1,905,000 in asset management and other fees to related parties not allocated to our operating segments.

Year Ended 2019

Net income attributable to common stockholders was $322,696,000, or $19.74 per diluted share of common stock, for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared to net loss attributable to common stockholders of $(14,298,000), or $(0.98) per diluted share of common stock, for the year ended December 31, 2018.

FFO attributable to common stockholders(5) was $(14,034,000), or $(0.96) per diluted share of common stock, for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared to $38,930,000, or $2.67 per diluted share of common stock, for the year ended December 31, 2018.

Core FFO attributable to common stockholders(6) was $20,918,000, or $1.44 per diluted share of common stock, for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared to $40,164,000, or $2.75 per diluted share of common stock, for the year ended December 31, 2018.

Segment Information

Our reportable segments during the three months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 consisted of two types of commercial real estate properties, namely, office and hotel, as well as a segment for our lending business. Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $11,573,000, or $0.79 per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $4,948,000, or $0.34 per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended December 31, 2018. Total segment NOI(3) was $11,497,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $26,548,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018.

Office

Same-Store

Same-store(2) office segment NOI(3) decreased 12.4% on a GAAP basis and decreased 15.2% on a cash basis for the three months ended December 31, 2019 compared to the three months ended December 31, 2018. The decrease in same-store(2) office segment NOI(3) is primarily due to an increase in payroll costs at most of our properties and lower revenues and higher expenses at an office property in Los Angeles, California, partially offset by increases in rental revenue at certain of our properties due to increases in rental rates as a result of leasing activity. The office property in Los Angeles, California is being repositioned into vibrant, collaborative office space after the expiration in April 2019 of a lease agreement for 100% of such property, which space has been partially occupied by an affiliate of the Company since May 2019.

At December 31, 2019, the Company’s same-store(2) office portfolio was 86.7% occupied, a decrease of 810 basis points year-over-year on a same-store(2) basis, and 87.0% leased, a decrease of 970 basis points year-over-year on a same-store(2) basis. The annualized rent per occupied square foot(1) on a same-store(2) basis was $48.18 at December 31, 2019 compared to $43.91 at December 31, 2018. During the three months ended December 31, 2019, the Company executed 27,956 square feet of recurring leases at our same-store(2) office portfolio, representing same-store(2) cash rent growth per square foot of 7.1%.

Total

Office segment NOI(3) decreased to $7,483,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2019, from $22,498,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018. The decrease is primarily due to the sale of three office properties and a parking garage in Oakland, California, the sale of an office property in Washington, D.C., and the sale of an office property in San Francisco, California, all of which were consummated in March 2019, the sale of an office property in Oakland, California, which was consummated in May 2019, the sale of two office properties in Washington, D.C., which was consummated in July 2019, an increase in payroll costs at most of our properties and lower revenues and higher expenses at an office property in Los Angeles, California, partially offset by increases in rental revenue at certain of our properties due to increases in rental rates as a result of leasing activity. The office property in Los Angeles, California is being repositioned into vibrant, collaborative office space after the expiration in April 2019 of a lease agreement for 100% of such property, which space has been partially occupied by an affiliate of the Company since May 2019.

Hotel

Hotel segment NOI(3) decreased to $2,522,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2019, from $2,848,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018, primarily due to increases in operating and payroll costs, partially offset by an increase in revenues.

Lending

Our lending segment primarily consists of our SBA 7(a) lending platform, which is a national lender that primarily originates loans to small businesses in the hospitality industry. Lending segment NOI(3) was $1,492,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $1,202,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018. The increase is primarily due to a decrease in the provision for loan losses and an increase in interest income.

Debt and Equity

During the three months ended December 31, 2019, we issued 379,509 Series A preferred units, with each Series A preferred unit consisting of one share of Series A preferred stock and one warrant to purchase 0.25 shares of our common stock, resulting in net proceeds of approximately $8,654,000. Net proceeds represent gross proceeds offset by costs specifically identifiable to the offering of the Series A preferred units, such as commissions, dealer manager fees, and other offering fees and expenses.

In November 2019, the Company repurchased in a tender offer 2,693,580 shares of Series L preferred stock, $0.001 par value per share and $28.37 stated value per share, representing one-third of the then-outstanding shares of Series L preferred stock, at a purchase price of $29.12 per share (of which $1.39, or $3,744,000 in the aggregate, reflected the amount of dividends on the Series L preferred stock accrued as of November 20, 2019), as converted to and paid in Israeli New Shekels. The tender offer was primarily funded from borrowings under our revolving credit facility. We recognized $5,873,000 of redeemable preferred stock redemptions in our consolidated statement of operations for the year ended December 31, 2019 in connection with the tender offer.

Dividends

On December 3, 2019, we declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.0750 per share of our common stock, which was paid on December 27, 2019 to stockholders of record at the close of business on December 13, 2019.

In addition, we declared an annual cash dividend of $1.56035 per share of our Series L preferred stock, which was paid on January 16, 2020 to stockholders of record at the close of business on December 31, 2019.

Further, we declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.34375 per share of our Series A preferred stock, or portion thereof for issuances during the period from October 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019, which was paid on January 15, 2020 to stockholders of record at the close of business on January 5, 2020.

Definitions

  1. Annualized rent per occupied square foot represents gross monthly base rent under leases commenced as of the specified periods, multiplied by twelve. This amount reflects total cash rent before abatements. Where applicable, annualized rent has been grossed up by adding annualized expense reimbursements to base rent. Annualized rent for certain office properties includes rent attributable to retail.
  2. Same-store properties are properties that we have owned and operated in a consistent manner and reported in our consolidated results during the entire span of the periods being reported. We excluded from our same-store property set this quarter any properties (i) acquired on or after October 1, 2018; (ii) sold or otherwise removed from our consolidated financial statements on or before December 31, 2019; or (iii) that underwent a major repositioning project we believed significantly affected its results at any point during the period commencing on October 1, 2018 and ending on December 31, 2019. When determining our same-store properties as of December 31, 2019, no properties were excluded pursuant to (i) and (iii) above and ten properties were excluded pursuant to (ii) above.
  3. Segment net operating income ("segment NOI"): for our real estate segments represents rental and other property income and expense reimbursements less property related expenses and excludes non-property income and expenses, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, corporate related general and administrative expenses, gain (loss) on sale of real estate, gain (loss) on early extinguishment of debt, impairment of real estate, transaction costs, and provision for income taxes. For our lending segment, segment NOI represents interest income net of interest expense and general overhead expenses. Please see our reconciliations of office, hotel, lending, and total cash NOI to segment NOI and net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders starting on page 12.
  4. Cash net operating income ("cash NOI"): for our real estate segments represents segment NOI adjusted to exclude the effect of the straight lining of rents, acquired above/below market lease amortization and other adjustments required by GAAP. For our lending segment, there is no distinction between cash NOI and segment NOI. Please see our reconciliations of office, hotel, lending, and total cash NOI to segment NOI and net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders starting on page 12.
  5. Funds from operations attributable to common stockholders ("FFO attributable to common stockholders") represents net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), which reflects the deduction of redeemable preferred stock dividends accumulated, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of real estate, impairment of real estate, and real estate depreciation and amortization. We calculate FFO in accordance with the standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (the "NAREIT"). Please see our reconciliations of net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders to FFO attributable to common stockholders starting on page 10, and the discussion of the benefits and limitations of FFO as a supplemental measure of operating performance.
  6. Core FFO attributable to common stockholders ("core FFO") represents FFO attributable to common stockholders (computed as described above), excluding gain (loss) on early extinguishment of debt, redeemable preferred stock redemptions, gain (loss) on termination of interest rate swaps, and transaction costs. Please see our reconciliations of net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders to core FFO attributable to common stockholders starting on page 11, and the discussion of the benefits and limitations of core FFO as a supplemental measure of operating performance.

Earnings Per Share

(Unaudited and in thousands, except per share amounts)

 

Earnings per share ("EPS") for the year-to-date period may differ from the sum of quarterly EPS amounts due to the required method for computing EPS for the respective periods. In addition, EPS is calculated independently for each component and may not be additive due to rounding. The following table reconciles the numerator and denominator used in computing our basic and diluted per-share amounts for net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders for the three months and the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018:

We believe that FFO is a widely recognized and appropriate measure of the performance of a REIT and that it 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 represents net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), which reflects the deduction of redeemable preferred stock dividends accumulated, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of real estate, impairment of real estate, and real estate depreciation and amortization. We calculate FFO in accordance with the standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (the "NAREIT").

 

Like any metric, FFO should not be used as the only measure of our performance because it excludes depreciation and amortization and captures neither the changes in the value of our real estate properties that result from use or market conditions nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties, all of which have real economic effect and could materially impact our operating results. Other REITs may not calculate FFO in accordance with the standards established by the NAREIT; accordingly, our FFO may not be comparable to the FFOs of other REITs. Therefore, FFO should be considered only as a supplement to net income (loss) as a measure of our performance and should not be used as a supplement to or substitute measure for cash flows from operating activities computed in accordance with GAAP. FFO should not be used as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends. The following table sets forth a reconciliation of net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders to FFO attributable to common stockholders for the three months and the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018:

  1. FFO attributable to common stockholders for the year ended December 31, 2019 includes $29,982,000, or $2.05 per diluted share of common stock, in loss on early extinguishment of debt, which was primarily incurred in connection with the sale of certain assets and related to the legal defeasance and prepayment of mortgage loans collateralized by such properties. Additionally, FFO attributable to common stockholders for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019 includes $5,874,000, or $0.40 per diluted share of common stock, and $5,882,000, or $0.40 per diluted share of common stock, respectively, in redeemable preferred stock redemptions, which is primarily related to the repurchase of 2,693,580 shares of our Series L preferred stock on November 20, 2019. Finally, FFO attributable to common stockholders for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018 includes $808,000, or $0.06 per diluted share of common stock, in loss on early extinguishment of debt.

Core Funds from Operations

(Unaudited and in thousands, except per share amounts)

 

In addition to calculating FFO in accordance with the standards established by NAREIT, we also calculate a supplemental FFO metric we call core FFO attributable to common stockholders. Core FFO attributable to common stockholders represents FFO attributable to common stockholders, computed in accordance with NAREIT's standards, excluding losses (or gains) on early extinguishment of debt, redeemable preferred stock redemptions, gains (or losses) on termination of interest rate swaps, and transaction costs. We believe that core FFO is a useful metric for securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of our Company as it excludes from FFO the effect of certain amounts that we believe are non-recurring, are non-operating in nature as they relate to the manner in which we finance our operations, or transactions outside of the ordinary course of business.

 

Like any metric, core FFO should not be used as the only measure of our performance because, in addition to excluding those items prescribed by NAREIT when calculating FFO, it excludes amounts incurred in connection with non-recurring special projects, prepaying or defeasing our debt and repurchasing our preferred stock, all of which have real economic effect and could materially impact our operating results. Other REITs may not calculate core FFO in the same manner as we do, or at all; accordingly, our core FFO may not be comparable to the core FFOs of other REITs who calculate such a metric. Therefore, core FFO should be considered only as a supplement to net income (loss) as a measure of our performance and should not be used as a supplement to or substitute measure for cash flows from operating activities computed in accordance with GAAP. Core FFO should not be used as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends. The following table sets forth a reconciliation of net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders to core FFO attributable to common stockholders for the three months and the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018:

CIM COMMERCIAL TRUST CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

Reconciliation of Net Operating Income

(Unaudited and in thousands)

 

We internally evaluate the operating performance and financial results of our real estate segments based on segment NOI, which is defined as rental and other property income and expense reimbursements less property related expenses and excludes non-property income and expenses, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, corporate related general and administrative expenses, gain (loss) on sale of real estate, gain (loss) on early extinguishment of debt, impairment of real estate, transaction costs, and provision for income taxes. For our lending segment, we define segment NOI as interest income net of interest expense and general overhead expenses. We also evaluate the operating performance and financial results of our operating segments using cash basis NOI, or "cash NOI". For our real estate segments, we define cash NOI as segment NOI adjusted to exclude the effect of the straight lining of rents, acquired above/below market lease amortization and other adjustments required by GAAP.

 

Segment NOI and cash NOI are not measures of operating results or cash flows from operating activities as measured by GAAP and should not be considered alternatives to income from continuing operations, or to cash flows as a measure of liquidity, or as an indication of our performance or of our ability to pay dividends. Companies may not calculate segment NOI or cash NOI in the same manner. We consider segment NOI and cash NOI to be useful performance measures to investors and management because, when compared across periods, they reflect the revenues and expenses directly associated with owning and operating our properties and the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs, providing a perspective not immediately apparent from income from continuing operations. Additionally, we believe that cash NOI is helpful to investors because it eliminates straight line rent and other non-cash adjustments to revenue and expenses.
