CIM Commercial Trust Corporation Reports 2020 First Quarter Results

May 11, 2020

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 11, 2020-- 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 ended March 31, 2020.

First Quarter 2020 Highlights

  • Annualized rent per occupied square foot(1) on a same-store(2) basis increased 12.3% to $50.20 as of March 31, 2020 compared to $44.72 as of March 31, 2019.
  • Our same-store(2) office portfolio was 86.1% leased as of March 31, 2020 compared to 96.7% as of March 31, 2019. The decrease is primarily due to the repositioning of an office property in Los Angeles, California.
  • During the first quarter of 2020, we executed 9,232 square feet of leases with terms longer than 12 months, of which 8,254 square feet were recurring leases executed at our same-store(2) office portfolio, representing same-store(2) cash rent growth per square foot of 13.7%.
  • Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $(6,787,000), or $(0.46) per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2020 compared to net income attributable to common stockholders of $287,631,000, or $18.90 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019.
  • Same-store(2) office segment net operating income(3) ("NOI") decreased 6.2%, while same-store(2) office cash NOI(4) decreased 7.5%, for the first quarter of 2020 as compared to the corresponding period in 2019.
  • Funds from operations (“FFO”) attributable to common stockholders(5) was $(1,529,000), or $(0.10) per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2020 compared to $(14,120,000), or $(0.97) per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019.
  • Core FFO attributable to common stockholders(6) was $(1,358,000), or $(0.09) per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2020 compared to $9,513,000, or $0.61 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019.

Management Commentary

"Although we anticipate an impact on our second quarter results from COVID-19 disruption, we are pleased that we have collected approximately 90.0% of April rent to date, excluding parking," said David Thompson, CIM Commercial's Chief Executive Officer.

"We will continue to work with our tenants to maximize collections and maintain our current occupancy levels. We believe we are well-positioned to navigate through this challenging time given our high-quality assets and flexible sources of capital. We have taken steps to reduce costs and bolster our liquidity, including eliminating the base service fee payable to our Operator. Given our access to capital and our advisor's sourcing capabilities, we are working to position the Company to capitalize on future opportunities."

Elimination of Base Service Fee

On May 11, 2020, we amended our master services agreement to replace the base service fee, which was $1,128,000 per year, subject to adjustment for inflation, with an incentive fee pursuant to which we will pay, on a quarterly basis, 15.00% of CIM Commercial’s quarterly core funds from operations in excess of a quarterly threshold equal to 1.75% (i.e., 7.00% on an annualized basis) of CIM Commercial’s average adjusted common stockholders’ equity (i.e., common stockholders’ equity plus accumulated depreciation and amortization) for such quarter. The amendment is effective as of April 1, 2020. The incentive fee hurdle for the first quarter of 2020 would have been $0.23 per share of common stock based on CIM Commercial's average adjusted common stockholders’ equity for such quarter. Based on the expected performance of the Company for the rest of 2020, we do not anticipate paying any incentive fee in 2020.

Financial Highlights

As of March 31, 2020, our real estate portfolio consisted of 11 assets, all of which are 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.

First Quarter 2020

Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $(6,787,000), or $(0.46) per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to net income attributable to common stockholders of $287,631,000, or $18.90 per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease is primarily attributable to a decrease of $377,581,000 in gain on sale of real estate, a decrease of $13,280,000 in segment NOI(3), an increase of $1,194,000 in redeemable preferred stock dividends declared or accumulated, and a decrease of $318,000 in interest and other income not allocated to our operating segments, partially offset by a decrease of $66,200,000 in impairment of real estate, a decrease of $25,071,000 in loss on early extinguishment of debt, a decrease of $4,372,000 in depreciation and amortization, a decrease of $1,792,000 in asset management and other fees to related parties not allocated to our operating segments, a decrease of $587,000 in interest expense not allocated to our operating segments, and a decrease of $340,000 in provision for income taxes.

FFO attributable to common stockholders(5) was $(1,529,000), or $(0.10) per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to $(14,120,000), or $(0.97) per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The increase in FFO attributable to common stockholders(5) is primarily attributable to a decrease of $25,071,000 in loss on early extinguishment of debt, a decrease of $1,792,000 in asset management and other fees to related parties not allocated to our operating segments, a decrease of $587,000 in interest expense not allocated to our operating segments, and a decrease of $340,000 in provision for income taxes, partially offset by a decrease of $13,280,000 in segment NOI(3), an increase of $1,194,000 in redeemable preferred stock dividends declared or accumulated, and a decrease of $318,000 in interest and other income not allocated to our operating segments.

Core FFO attributable to common stockholders(6) was $(1,358,000), or $(0.09) per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to $9,513,000, or $0.61 per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease in core FFO attributable to common stockholders(6) is primarily attributable to a decrease of $13,280,000 in segment NOI(3), an increase of $1,194,000 in redeemable preferred stock dividends declared or accumulated, and a decrease of $318,000 in interest and other income not allocated to our operating segments, partially offset by a decrease of $2,073,000 in interest expense not allocated to our operating segments, adjusted to exclude a gain related to the termination of interest rate swaps during the three months ended March 31, 2019, a decrease of $1,792,000 in asset management and other fees to related parties not allocated to our operating segments, and a decrease of $340,000 in provision for income taxes.

Segment Information

Our reportable segments during the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 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 $(6,787,000), or $(0.46) per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to net income attributable to common stockholders of $287,631,000, or $18.90 per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended March 31, 2019, which represents a decrease of $294,418,000, or $19.36 per diluted share of common stock. Total segment NOI(3) was $11,535,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to $24,815,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Office

Same-Store

Same-store(2) office segment NOI(3) decreased 6.2%, while same-store(2) office cash NOI(4) decreased 7.5% for the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease in same-store(2) office segment NOI(3) is primarily due to lower revenues and higher expenses at an office property in Los Angeles, California and an increase in payroll costs at one of our properties, partially offset by increases in rental revenue at certain of our properties due to increases in rental rates as a result of leasing activity and an increase in expense reimbursements at certain of our properties. 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 March 31, 2020, the Company’s same-store(2) office portfolio was 85.8% occupied, a decrease of 960 basis points year-over-year on a same-store(2) basis, and 86.1% leased, a decrease of 1060 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 $50.20 at March 31, 2020 compared to $44.72 at March 31, 2019. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company executed 8,254 square feet of recurring leases at our same-store(2) office portfolio, representing same-store(2) cash rent growth per square foot of 13.7%.

Total

Office segment NOI(3) decreased to $8,753,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, from $19,732,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. 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, lower revenues and higher expenses at an office property in Los Angeles, California, and an increase in payroll costs at one of our properties, partially offset by increases in rental revenue at certain of our properties due to increases in rental rates as a result of leasing activity and an increase in expense reimbursements at certain of our properties. 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 $1,771,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, from $3,881,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019, primarily due to a decrease in occupancy and average daily rate in March 2020 as compared to March 2019 as a result of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus ("COVID-19").

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 $1,011,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to $1,202,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease is primarily due to a decrease in premium income from the sale of the guaranteed portion of our SBA 7(a) loans and a decrease in interest income resulting from a decrease in the prime rate, partially offset by a decrease in interest expense as a result of a reduction in the outstanding balances of our SBA 7(a) loan-backed notes and secured borrowings and a reduction in loan losses.

Debt and Equity

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we issued 366,991 shares of Series A preferred stock, 118,911 Series A preferred warrants, each of which allows the holder to purchase 0.25 shares of our common stock, and 5,980 shares of Series D preferred stock for aggregate net proceeds of $8,416,000. Net proceeds represent gross proceeds offset by costs specifically identifiable to the offering of Series A preferred stock, Series A preferred warrants and Series D preferred stock, such as commissions, dealer manager fees, and other offering fees and expenses.

On January 28, 2020, 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 January 1, 2020 to March 31, 2020.

When determining our same-store properties as of March 31, 2020, no properties were excluded pursuant to (i) and (iii) above and ten properties were excluded from the 2019 period pursuant to (ii) above.

We calculate FFO in accordance with the standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (the "NAREIT").

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 ended March 31, 2020 and 2019:

For the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, the effect of certain shares of redeemable preferred stock were excluded from the computation of diluted net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders and the diluted weighted average shares and common stock equivalents outstanding as such inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

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 declared or accumulated and redeemable preferred stock deemed dividends, 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 ended March 31, 2020 and 2019:

______________________________

(a)

In connection with the sale of certain properties during the three months ended March 31, 2019, we recognized a $25,071,000, or $1.72 per diluted share of common stock, loss on early extinguishment of debt primarily related to the legal defeasance and prepayment of mortgage loans collateralized by such properties. Such loss on early extinguishment of debt is included in, and has the effect of reducing, net income attributable to common stockholders and FFO attributable to common stockholders, because loss on early extinguishment of debt is not an adjustment prescribed by NAREIT.

(b)

For the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, the effect of certain shares of redeemable preferred stock were excluded from the computation of diluted FFO attributable to common stockholders and the diluted weighted average shares and common stock equivalents outstanding as such inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

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, redeemable preferred stock deemed dividends, 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, repurchasing our preferred stock, and adjusting the carrying value of our preferred stock classified in temporary equity to its redemption value, 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 ended March 31, 2020 and 2019:

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.

Below is a reconciliation of cash NOI to segment NOI and net income (loss) attributable to the Company for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.
