(1) EPS for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2020 was higher primarily due to the sale of 50 percent of our interest in CityOn.Xi’an, resulting in the recognition of gains totaling approximately $0.28 per diluted common share.

(2) Adjusted FFO for the three months ended March 31, 2020 excludes restructuring charges, costs incurred related to the Simon Property Group transaction, deferred income tax expense incurred related to the sale of CityOn.Xi’an, an adjustment of the promote fee (net of tax) related to Starfield Hanam recorded last year and costs associated with the Taubman Asia President transition.

(3) Adjusted FFO for the three months ended March 31, 2019 excludes a restructuring charge, costs associated with shareholder activism and an adjustment for the fluctuation in the fair value of equity securities.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2020, AFFO per diluted share was $0.88, down $0.07 for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. Notably, the company’s first quarter 2019 AFFO included $0.045 per diluted share of insurance proceeds related to the business interruption claim at The Mall of San Juan (San Juan, Puerto Rico). In addition, first quarter 2020 AFFO was unfavorably impacted by the 2019 bankruptcy filing of Forever 21.

Operating Statistics

For the quarter, comparable center NOI (comp center NOI) at our beneficial interest, excluding lease cancellation income and using constant currency exchange rates, was down 1.5 percent. Including lease cancellation income, it was down 0.4 percent. Comp center NOI was primarily down due to lower rents from Forever 21. Excluding the impact of the bankruptcy filing of Forever 21 and the subsequent restructuring of leases, comp center NOI would have been up.

Trailing 12-month sales in U.S. sales comparable centers were $955 per square foot, up 2 percent over the 12-months ended March 31, 2019. U.S comparable center sales per square foot were down 11.6 percent in the first quarter. The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting center closures, occurring in March, significantly impacted first quarter sales. In addition, as reported a year ago, Tesla model 3 deliveries substantially benefited 2019 first quarter sales. For the two-month period ended February 29, 2020, sales per square foot in U.S. comparable centers, excluding Tesla, were up 4.5 percent. Apparel sales at U.S. comparable centers were up 9.2 percent over the same period.

Average rent per square foot for the quarter in U.S. comparable centers was $62.12, down 2 percent from $63.41 in the comparable period last year. Excluding Forever 21, average rent per square foot growth would have been flat.

Ending occupancy in U.S. comparable centers was 91.9 percent on March 31, 2020, down 1.1 percent from March 31, 2019, which is primarily related to frictional vacancy at three large spaces. Leased space in U.S. comparable centers was 94.6 percent on March 31, 2020, down 0.9 percent from March 31, 2019.

Financing Activity

In February, the construction loan financing for Starfield Anseong (Anseong, South Korea), which will fund the remaining development cost, was completed. The five-year, non-recourse, Korean Won denominated loan has a capacity of approximately $246 million U.S. dollars using the March 31, 2020 exchange rate. The loan bears interest at the Korea Financial Investment Association (KOFIA) Five-Year Bond Yield plus 0.76 percent and is fixed upon each draw. The weighted average rate of the amount drawn as of March 31, 2020 was 2.25 percent. As of March 31, 2020, $44 million had been drawn on the facility. The company owns a 49 percent interest in the project, which is scheduled to open in late 2020.

In March, we completed a 1.2 billion Chinese Yuan Renminbi (RMB) (approximately $169 million U.S. dollars using the March 31, 2020 exchange rate) 12-year, fully-amortizing, non-recourse mortgage financing at CityOn.Zhengzhou (Zhengzhou, Henan, China). The company owns a 24.5 percent interest in the joint venture. The loan bears interest at the Five-Year China Loan Prime Rate plus 0.85 percent, resulting in an effective rate of 5.6 percent, as of March 31, 2020. The interest rate is fixed upon each draw and there were not any draws on this facility as of March 31, 2020. Proceeds of the loan will be used to repay the existing other financing arrangements of the joint venture and are ultimately expected to result in the repatriation of approximately $42 million later this year.

In late March, the company borrowed $350 million on its $1.1 billion primary unsecured revolving line of credit, resulting in a total of $970 million outstanding as of March 31, 2020. The facility has a maturity date of February 2024, with two six-month extension options, and currently bears interest at a rate of LIBOR plus 1.375 percent. The company increased its borrowings as a precautionary measure to increase liquidity and preserve financial flexibility due to uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and is available to be used for temporary working capital needs and general corporate purposes in the near future. As of March 31, 2020, the company had $395 million in cash on its consolidated balance sheet.

In April, the company completed a one-year extension of its $65 million secured revolving line of credit. This revolving line of credit, which is typically renewed every April, had a maturity date of April 25, 2020. The facility continues to bear interest at a rate of LIBOR plus 1.4 percent and all other key terms remain unchanged. As of May 5, there had not been any borrowings on this line of credit.

CityOn.Xi’an

In February, the company completed the sale of 50 percent of Taubman Asia’s interest in CityOn.Xi’an (Xi’an, China) to real estate funds managed by the Blackstone Group, Inc. (Blackstone) for $91 million. The company now has a 25 percent ownership interest in the center. SeeTaubman Completes Sale of Interest in CityOn.Xi’an to Blackstone – February 28, 2020.

Net proceeds were approximately $48 million, following the allocation of property-level debt, taxes and transaction costs, which were used to pay down the company’s primary line of credit. During the quarter, the company recognized a gain on disposition of $10.6 million and a gain on remeasurement of $13.2 million related to the sale. This sale represents the third and final asset sale associated with the Blackstone transactions announced last year. See Taubman to Sell 50 Percent of its Interests in its Three Asia Shopping Centers to Blackstone – February 14, 2019.

COVID-19 Update

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the company closed all but two of its U.S. shopping centers on March 19. The other two centers closed soon thereafter. The company is preparing to reopen its centers, using enhanced protocols, as soon as possible in compliance all local, state and federal laws and mandates to help ensure the health and safety of communities we serve.

In Asia, the company’s three centers experienced varying levels of disruption due to COVID-19. CityOn.Xi’an was closed for about a month and reopened on February 29. CityOn.Zhengzhou was closed for 10 days and reopened on February 27. Starfield Hanam (Hanam, South Korea) never closed. In China, only theatres and children’s entertainment tenants, representing on average about 10 percent of the space, remains restricted. Since reopening, both CityOn.Xi’an and CityOn.Zhengzhou have increased their traffic and sales. Total mall tenant sales and customer traffic at both centers upon reopening were down nearly 90 percent year-over-year. Now, two months later, both are approaching 2019 levels. At Starfield Hanam, both traffic and sales have fully recovered.

In early March, the company began implementing several liquidity enhancement initiatives in anticipation of potential disruption related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The company has decided to defer between $100 and $110 million of planned capital expenditures, at beneficial interest. About half of the remaining planned capital spending for the year, at beneficial interest, is related to the completion of the Starfield Anseong development, which will be funded using the recently obtained construction financing. Operating expenses, at beneficial interest, are also expected to be reduced by approximately $10 million for the year. These actions have materially lowered expected cash outflows and, in combination with the additional borrowing on the company’s line of credit, are expected to provide ample liquidity for the company’s near-term operations.

Investor Conference Call

Due to the pending transaction with Simon Property Group, the company will not host a conference call to review the first quarter 2020 financial results.

TAUBMAN CENTERS, INC.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, the terms "we", "us", and "our" refer to Taubman Centers, Inc. (TCO), The Taubman Realty Group Limited Partnership (TRG), and/or TRG's subsidiaries as the context may require.

We use certain non-GAAP operating measures, including EBITDA, beneficial interest in EBITDA, Net Operating Income (NOI), beneficial interest in NOI, and Funds from Operations (FFO). These measures are reconciled to the most comparable GAAP measures. Additional information as to the use of these measures are as follows.

EBITDA represents earnings before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization of our consolidated and unconsolidated businesses. Beneficial interest in EBITDA represents our share of the earnings before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization of our consolidated and unconsolidated businesses. We believe EBITDA and beneficial interest in EBITDA provide useful indicators 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.

We use NOI as an alternative measure to evaluate the operating performance of centers, both on individual and stabilized portfolio bases, and in formulating corporate goals and compensation. We define NOI as property-level operating revenues (includes rental income excluding straight-line adjustments of minimum rent) less maintenance, property taxes, utilities, promotion, ground rent (including straight-line adjustments), and other property operating expenses. Beneficial interest in NOI represents our share of NOI (as previously defined) of our consolidated and unconsolidated businesses. 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. We also use 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. We generally provide 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. In addition, The Mall of San Juan has been excluded from comparable center statistics as a result of Hurricane Maria given that the center's performance has been and is expected to continue to be materially impacted for the foreseeable future. We also use NOI excluding lease cancellation income using constant currency exchange rates as an alternative measure because exchange rates may vary significantly from period to period, which can affect comparability and trend analysis.

The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) defines FFO as net income (calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP)), excluding depreciation and amortization related to real estate, gains and losses from the sale of certain real estate assets, gains and losses from change in control, and impairment write-downs of certain real estate assets and investments in entities when the impairment is directly attributable to decreases in the value of depreciable real estate held by the entity. We believe 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, we 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. We primarily use FFO in measuring performance and in formulating corporate goals and compensation.

We 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. We believe 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. The following table summarizes adjustments to FFO and EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019:

These non-GAAP measures as presented by us 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 our operating performance. Additionally, these measures do not represent cash flows from operating, investing, or financing activities as defined by GAAP.

We also provide our beneficial interest in certain financial information of our UJVs. This beneficial information is derived as our ownership interest in the investee multiplied by the specific financial statement item being presented. Investors are cautioned that deriving our beneficial interest in this manner may not accurately depict the legal and economic implications of holding a noncontrolling interest in the investee.

(a)

 

All debt is secured and non-recourse to TRG unless otherwise indicated.

(b)

 

Includes the impact of interest rate swaps that qualify for hedge accounting, if any, but does not include effect of amortization of debt issuance costs, losses on settlement of derivatives used to hedge the refinancing of certain fixed rate debt or interest rate cap premiums, if any.

(c)

 

The LIBOR rate is capped at 3.00% until maturity, resulting in a maximum interest rate of 4.45%.

(d)

 

The $250 million loan bears interest at LIBOR + 2.15% and decreases to LIBOR + 1.85% upon achieving certain performance measures. Two, one-year extension options are available. TRG has provided an unconditional guarantee of 100% of the principal balance and all accrued but unpaid interest during the term of the loan.

(e)

 

Rate floats daily at LIBOR plus spread. Letters of credit totaling $9.8 million are also outstanding on facility. The facility is recourse to TRG and secured by an indirect interest in 40% of The Mall at Short Hills. In April 2020, a one-year extension of the maturity date was completed on the facility.

(f)

 

The unsecured facility bears interest at a range of LIBOR + 1.05% to 1.60% with a facility fee ranging from 0.20% to 0.25% based on our total leverage ratio. Two, six-month extension options are available. The LIBOR rate is swapped to a fixed rate of 2.14% until February 2022 on $25 million of the $1.1 billion TRG revolving credit facility. This results in an effective interest rate in the range of 3.19% to 3.74% until February 2022 on $25 million of the credit facility balance.

(g)

 

The $275 million unsecured term loan bears interest at a range of LIBOR + 1.15% to 1.80% based on our total leverage ratio. The LIBOR rate is swapped to a fixed rate of 2.14% until February 2022, which results in an effective interest rate in the range of 3.29% to 3.94% until February 2022.

(h)

 

The $250 million unsecured term loan bears interest at a range of LIBOR + 1.25% to 1.90% based on our total leverage ratio. Through the term of the loan, the LIBOR rate is swapped to a fixed rate of 3.02% which results in an effective interest rate in the range of 4.27% to 4.92%.

(i)

 

Debt is swapped to an effective rate of 3.49% until maturity.

(j)

 

On February 14, 2019, we announced agreements to sell 50% of our ownership interests in Starfield Hanam, CityOn.Xi'an, and CityOn.Zhengzhou to funds managed by Blackstone. The completion of the sales of Starfield Hanam, CityOn.Zhengzhou, and CityOn.Xian occurred in September 2019, December 2019, and February 2020, respectively.

(k)

 

1.2 billion Renminbi (RMB) ($169.4 million USD equivalent at March 31, 2020) non-recourse facility.

(l)

 

1.2 billion RMB ($169.4 million USD equivalent at March 31, 2020) non-recourse facility. The loan bears interest at the 5 year China RMB Loan Prime Rate plus 0.85% and is fixed upon each draw. In April 2020, there was an initial draw of 520 million RMB ($73.4 million USD equivalent at March 31, 2020), at a fixed rate of 5.6%, which was used to repay a portion of the existing partner loans. No draws are allowed after October 16, 2020.

(m)

 

Beneficial interest in debt includes $11.3 million of purchase accounting premium from acquisition of The Gardens Mall which reduces the stated rate on the debt of 6.8% to an average effective rate of 4.2% on total beneficial interest in debt over the remaining term of the loan. The effective rate for the current quarter differs from the average over the remaining term of the loan due to differences in amortization methods.
