(1) Adjusted FFO for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 excludes a one-time $21.7 million payment the company received in the second quarter due to the termination of the company’s leasing services agreement at The Shops at Crystals (Las Vegas, Nev.).
 

“We had a solid quarter,” said Robert S. Taubman, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Taubman Centers. “FFO was consistent with our expectations despite a two cent legal charge.

Our NOI growth was strong. Driven by increased rents, recoveries, and occupancy, we produced our best quarter of growth in nearly four years. We also posted impressive releasing spreads that for the eighth consecutive quarter were greater than 20 percent.”

Operating Statistics

Diluted net income attributable to common shareowners was up 49.1 percent for the quarter, bringing year-to-date growth to 12.1 percent. Comparable center NOI, excluding lease cancellation income, was up 6.2 percent for the quarter, bringing year-to-date growth to 6 percent.

Average rent per square foot for the quarter was $62.61, up 5.4 percent from $59.41 in the comparable period last year. Year-to-date, average rent per square foot was up 4 percent.

Trailing 12-month releasing spreads per square foot for the period ended June 30, 2016 were a robust 24.2 percent.

Ending occupancy in comparable centers was 93.8 percent on June 30, 2016, up 0.8 percent from June 30, 2015. Leased space in comparable centers was 96.2 percent on June 30, 2016, down 0.8 percent from June 30, 2015.

Comparable center mall tenant sales per square foot decreased 0.7 percent from the second quarter of 2015. This brings the company's 12-month trailing mall tenant sales per square foot to $789, a decrease of 1 percent from the 12-months ended June 30, 2015. Year-to-date, mall tenant sales per square foot were down 1.8 percent.

“Most of our centers reported sales increases during the quarter,” said Mr. Taubman. “Unfortunately, softness in our South Florida centers continued.”

Ownership in CityOn.Zhengzhou Increased; Planned Opening Date Changed

In July, Taubman and Wangfujing Group Co. acquired Maple Real Estate’s (the land developer) 35 percent interest in CityOn.Zhengzhou. As a result, Taubman and Wangfujing now own 49 percent and 51 percent of the center, respectively. The company expects its share of the additional investment to be approximately $60 million. “We have made tremendous progress in leasing and construction. We are confident in the future success of the center and are pleased to have the opportunity at this time to increase our ownership,” said Rene Tremblay, president of Taubman Asia.

The opening of the center is now expected to occur in March 2017. The completion of a new main power station being built by the government, which is required for the center’s opening, has been delayed. The change in opening date will not impact the company's anticipated $175 million share of total project cost or after-tax stabilized return of 6 to 6.5 percent.

Financing Activity

In May, Cherry Creek Shopping Center (Denver, Colo.), the company’s 50 percent owned joint venture, completed a $550 million, 12-year, non-recourse refinancing. The loan is interest only during the entire term at a fixed all-in rate of 3.87 percent. Proceeds were used to pay off the previous $280 million, 5.24 percent loan. The company’s share of excess proceeds, net of fees, of approximately $135 million was used to pay down the company’s lines of credit.

2016 Guidance

The company is updating its guidance for 2016. 2016 EPS is now expected to be in the range of $1.73 to $1.93 per diluted common share, revised from the previous range of $1.85 to $2.10. 2016 FFO is now expected to be in the range of $3.75 to $3.90 per diluted common share, revised from the previous range of $3.75 to $3.95. 2016 Adjusted FFO, which excludes the one-time $21.7 million payment the company received in the second quarter due to the termination of the company’s leasing services agreement at The Shops at Crystals, is now expected to be in the range of $3.50 to $3.65 per diluted common share, revised from the previous range of $3.50 to $3.70.

The changes in the company’s guidance are primarily due to lower lease cancellation income, which the company now expects its beneficial share to be about $3 million, down from the previous estimate of about $6 million. In addition, the company incurred an unanticipated two cent legal charge in the second quarter.

(1)   Beneficial interest in EBITDA represents the Operating Partnership’s share of the earnings before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization of its consolidated and unconsolidated businesses. The Company believes beneficial interest in EBITDA provides a useful indicator of operating performance, as it is customary in the real estate and shopping center business to evaluate the performance of properties on a basis unaffected by capital structure.
 
The Company uses Net Operating Income (NOI) as an alternative measure to evaluate the operating performance of centers, both on individual and stabilized portfolio bases. The Company defines NOI as property-level operating revenues (includes rental income excluding straight-line adjustments of minimum rent) less maintenance, taxes, utilities, promotion, ground rent (including straight-line adjustments), and other property operating expenses. Since NOI excludes general and administrative expenses, pre-development charges, interest income and expense, depreciation and amortization, impairment charges, restructuring charges, and gains from peripheral land and property dispositions, it provides a performance measure that, when compared period over period, reflects the revenues and expenses most directly associated with owning and operating rental properties, as well as the impact on their operations from trends in tenant sales, occupancy and rental rates, and operating costs. The Company also uses NOI excluding lease cancellation income as an alternative measure because this income may vary significantly from period to period, which can affect comparability and trend analysis. The Company generally provides separate projections for expected comparable center NOI growth and lease cancellation income. Comparable centers are generally defined as centers that were owned and open for the entire current and preceding period presented, excluding centers impacted by significant redevelopment activity.
 
The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) defines Funds from Operations (FFO) as net income (computed in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP)), excluding gains (or losses) from extraordinary items and sales of properties and impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate, plus real estate related depreciation and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company believes that FFO is a useful supplemental measure of operating performance for REITs. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, the Company and most industry investors and analysts have considered presentations of operating results that exclude historical cost depreciation to be useful in evaluating the operating performance of REITs. The Company primarily uses FFO in measuring performance and in formulating corporate goals and compensation.
 
The Company may also present adjusted versions of NOI, beneficial interest in EBITDA, and FFO when used by management to evaluate operating performance when certain significant items have impacted results that affect comparability with prior or future periods due to the nature or amounts of these items. The Company believes the disclosure of the adjusted items is similarly useful to investors and others to understand management's view on comparability of such measures between periods. For the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2016, FFO and EBITDA were adjusted to exclude the lump sum payment of $21.7 million received in May 2016 in connection with the termination of the Company's third party leasing agreement at The Shops at Crystals (Crystals) due to a change in ownership of the center.
 
These non-GAAP measures as presented by the Company are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures used by other REITs due to the fact that not all REITs use the same definitions. These measures should not be considered alternatives to net income or as an indicator of the Company's operating performance. Additionally, these measures do not represent cash flows from operating, investing, or financing activities as defined by GAAP.
 
(2) Statistics exclude non-comparable centers for all periods presented. The June 30, 2015 statistics have been restated to include comparable centers to 2016. The Mall at University Town Center has been excluded from comparable 12-month trailing statistics reported for 2016 and 2015 as the center was not open for the entire 12 months ended June 30, 2015. Sales per square foot exclude spaces greater than or equal to 10,000 square feet.
 
(3) Based on reports of sales furnished by mall tenants.
