OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Starwood Waypoint Residential Trust (NYSE:SWAY) (the “Company”), a leading single-family rental (“SFR”) real estate investment trust (“REIT”), today announced its operating and financial results for the first quarter 2015.

First Quarter 2015 Highlights

  • Rental revenue from the single-family rental portfolio was $42.0 million, an increase of 13.2% over the prior quarter
  • Core Funds From Operations (“Core FFO”) was $22.5 million, or $0.59 per share, an increase of 34.0% over the prior quarter
  • Net Operating Income (“NOI”) Margin on the stabilized home portfolio was 64.4%
  • The NOI increase on the same store portfolio of homes was 3.5% year-over-year for the first quarter of 2015 over the first quarter of 2014
  • The lease percentage of the overall home portfolio increased to 89.1% at March 31, 2015 from 83.8% at December 31, 2014
  • The lease percentage of homes 90 days past rent ready was 98.8% at March 31, 2015
  • Acquired 764 homes for a total purchase price of $136.3 million, including estimated renovation costs
  • Declared Q2 dividend of $0.14 per common share
  • Estimated Net Asset Value increased to $33.04 per common share

"Our first quarter results reflect continued successful execution on both our single-family rental operations and non-performing loan resolutions,” stated Doug Brien, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. “Renter demand remains robust in our target markets and we continue to utilize our proprietary Compass technology to acquire new homes for rental in our target markets at attractive unlevered yields. We are confident our portfolio of leased homes will provide a growing contribution to Core FFO for the remainder of the year, both from an increase in the number of stabilized homes and stronger rent growth.”

First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Core FFO after adjusting for non-comparable items grew 34.0% to $22.5 million, or $0.59 per share, during first quarter 2015 compared to $16.8 million, or $0.44 per share, as reported in fourth quarter 2014. FFO was $17.9 million or $0.47 per share during first quarter 2015 compared to $10.2 million, or $0.27 per share, in the prior quarter.

The Company generated total revenues of $62.0 million for the first quarter of 2015, compared to $47.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. The 29.7% increase in revenues resulted from significant growth in the Company’s stabilized portfolio of homes during the quarter and realized gains on the Company’s non-performing loan (“NPL”) portfolio. The Company’s net loss attributable to common shareholders improved to approximately $7,000, or $0.00 per share. This compares to a net loss of $9.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, or ($0.25) per share.

For the Company’s stabilized SFR portfolio, total revenue as adjusted increased by $5.0 million, or 13.4%, to $42.6 million during first quarter 2015 from the prior quarter. Property operating expenses on the stabilized SFR portfolio were $16.0 million. As a result, NOI for the stabilized portfolio increased by $3.7 million, or 16.0%, to $26.6 million during first quarter 2015 from the prior quarter, for a stabilized portfolio NOI margin of 64.4%.

For the Company’s same store portfolio of 1,811 homes, defined as homes stabilized at January 1, 2014 and held in operations throughout the full periods in both 2014 and 2015, NOI increased 3.5% for the first quarter of 2015 from the first quarter of 2014.

During the first quarter of 2015, the Company acquired 764 homes for an aggregate estimated total investment of $136.3 million, or $178,300 per home, including estimated investment costs for renovation.

NPL Portfolio

At March 31, 2015, the Company owned 3,920 first lien NPLs compared to 4,389 first lien NPLs owned at December 31, 2014. The purchase price of $549.6 million for these 3,920 NPLs represents 65.9% of the broker price opinions. The reduction in first lien NPLs is primarily due to resolution activity and a bulk sale of 171 loans and one individual loan sale completed during the quarter.

The Company successfully resolved 395 NPLs during first quarter 2015 compared to 345 NPLs resolved during fourth quarter 2014. The 77 NPLs resolved during the quarter and classified as “Performing” achieved a current yield of 8.8%. The total number of resolutions does not include the bulk sale during the quarter of 171 NPLs and one individual NPL sale located in the non-core markets of New York and New Jersey.

Balance Sheet and Financial Activity

At March 31, 2015, the Company had $1.85 billion of debt outstanding, with a weighted average variable interest rate of 3.06% and a weighted average remaining term to maturity of 3.2 years.

At March 31, 2015, estimated NAV was $33.04 per share as compared to $32.53 per share at December 31, 2014, an increase of 1.57% from the prior quarter. The Company’s book value was $28.44 per share as of March 31, 2015 compared to $28.58 per share at December 31, 2014, a decrease of 0.49% from the prior quarter.

As of March 31, 2015, the Company had a total of approximately $640 million of unrestricted cash and undrawn capacity on its credit facilities.

Subsequent Events

On May 6, 2015, the Company’s Board of Trustees declared a dividend of $0.14 per common share, which will be paid on July 15, 2015 to shareholders of record on June 30, 2015.

On May 6, 2015, the Company’s board of trustees authorized a share repurchase program pursuant to which the Company may purchase up to $150 million of its common shares, beginning May 6, 2015 and ending May 6, 2016.

Definitions and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

FFO and Core FFO

FFO is used by industry analysts and investors as a supplemental performance measure of an equity REIT. FFO is defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) as net income or loss (computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”)) excluding gains or losses from sales of previously depreciated real estate assets, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets and adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

We believe that FFO is a meaningful supplemental measure of the operating performance of our single-family home business because historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time, as reflected through depreciation. Because real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, management considers FFO an appropriate supplemental performance measure because it excludes historical cost depreciation, as well as gains or losses related to sales of previously depreciated homes, from GAAP net income. By excluding depreciation and gains or losses on sales of real estate, management uses FFO to measure returns on its investments in real estate assets. However, because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization and captures neither the changes in the value of the homes that result from use or market conditions nor the level of capital expenditures to maintain the operating performance of the homes, all of which have real economic effect and could materially impact our results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of our performance is limited.

We believe that Core FFO is a meaningful supplemental measure of our operating performance for the same reasons as FFO and adjusting for non-routine items that when excluded allows for more comparable periods. Our Core FFO begins with FFO as defined by the NAREIT White Paper and is adjusted for: share-based compensation, non-recurring costs associated with the separation, acquisition fees and other expenses, write-off of loan costs, loss on derivative financial instruments, amortization of derivative financial instruments cost, severance expense, non-cash interest expense related to amortization on convertible senior notes, and other non-comparable items as applicable.

Management also believes that FFO/Core FFO, combined with the required GAAP presentations, is useful to investors in providing more meaningful comparisons of the operating performance of a company’s real estate between periods or as compared to other companies. FFO/Core FFO does not represent net income or cash flows from operations as defined by GAAP and is not intended to indicate whether cash flows will be sufficient to fund cash needs. It should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indicator of the REIT’s operating performance or to cash flows as a measure of liquidity. Our FFO/Core FFO may not be comparable to the FFO of other REITs due to the fact that not all REITs use the NAREIT or similar Core FFO definition. For a reconciliation of FFO and Core FFO to net loss attributable to Starwood Waypoint Residential Trust shareholders, please see below.

(1) Core FFO is a non-GAAP measure.

(2) Commencing with the three months ended June 30, 2014, we changed our definition of Core FFO to include adjustments related to share-based compensation and exclude adjustments related to acquisition pursuit costs. The figures shown for the three months ended March 31, 2015 reflect these changes, however, the figures shown for the corresponding period in 2014 remain as reported in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on May 15, 2014.

Estimated NAV

We define Estimated NAV as the estimated value of all assets net of liabilities. To calculate the Estimated NAV, the historical net investments in real estate and NPLs at carrying value are deducted from total shareholders’ equity and the Estimated SFR Value and NPL Value are added (see table below). The costs of selling properties in the portfolio, including commissions and other related costs are not deducted for the purpose of calculating the Estimated SFR Value and Estimated NAV. Further, future promoted interests on the NPL portfolio are not deducted for the purpose of calculating Estimated SFR & NPL Value and Estimated NAV. We consider Estimated NAV to be an appropriate supplemental measure as it illustrates the estimated imbedded value in our SFR portfolio and NPL portfolio that is carried on our balance sheet primarily at cost. The Estimated SFR Value, Estimated NPL Value and Estimated NAV are non‐GAAP financial measures. However, they are provided for informational purposes to be used by investors in assessing the value of the assets. A reconciliation of total shareholders’ equity to Estimated NAV is provided below.

(1) Renovation reserve includes remaining capital expenditures for non-stabilized homes and average turn 2 cost for stabilized homes.

Same Store Properties

We define Same Store Properties as homes stabilized at January 1, 2014 and held in operations throughout the full periods in both 2014 and 2015. Same Store Properties exclude homes that have been disposed or transitioned to the development period for significant renovation. We believe same store growth is a useful measure of performance because the population of properties in this analysis is consistent from period to period, thereby eliminating the effects of changes in the composition of the portfolio. Refer right for a reconciliation of net loss attributable to Starwood Waypoint Residential Trust shareholders to Same Store NOI.

Total NOI, Total NPL NOI, Total Non-Stabilized Portfolio NOI and Total Stabilized Portfolio NOI.

We define Total NOI as total revenues less property operating and maintenance expenses and real estate taxes and insurance expenses (“property operating expenses”) and mortgage loan servicing costs. We define Total NPL Portfolio NOI as gains on NPLs, net and gains on loan conversions, net less mortgage loan servicing costs. We define Total Non-Stabilized Portfolio NOI as total revenues on the non-stabilized portfolio less property operating expenses on the non-stabilized portfolio. We define Total Stabilized Portfolio NOI as total revenues on the stabilized portfolio less property operating expenses on the stabilized portfolio. We consider these NOI measures to be appropriate supplemental measures of operating performance to net income attributable to common shareholders because they reflect the operating performance of our homes without allocation of corporate level overhead or general and administrative costs and reflect the operations of the segments and sub-segments of our business.

These NOI measures and Same Store NOI should not be considered alternatives to net loss or net cash flows from operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP, as indications of our performance or as measures of liquidity. Although we use these non-GAAP measures for comparability in assessing their performance against other REITs, not all REITs compute the same non-GAAP measures. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that our basis for computing these non-GAAP measures are comparable with that of other REITs.

These metrics should be considered along with other available information in valuing and assessing us, including our GAAP financial measures and other cash flow and yield metrics. These metrics should not be viewed as a substitute for book value, net investments in real estate, equity, net income or cash flows from operations prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as measures of profitability or liquidity. Further, not all REITs compute same non-GAAP measure, therefore there can be no assurance that our basis for computing this non-GAAP measure is comparable with that of other REITs.

Certain terms as used in this earnings release are defined and further explained in the first quarter 2015 “Supplemental Operating & Financial Data” section of the full earnings release available on the Company’s website at www.starwoodwaypoint.com.
