Operational Highlights

  • Signed 747,672 square feet in the third quarter 2023, representing the fifth consecutive quarter of leasing volume over 500,000 square feet and the highest quarterly amount since the first quarter 2010.
  • Grew the signed not commenced rent and recovery income balance to $13.1 million as of September 30, 2023, up from $9.3 million as of June 30, 2023, representing an increase of over 8% above third quarter 2023 annualized NOI and increasing the total leased-to-occupied spread to 490 basis points.
  • Achieved a comparable new lease spread of 49.9%, during the third quarter 2023, exceeding the trailing twelve month average of 45.7%, with expected incremental returns on leasing capex of approximately 11%.
  • Reported a trailing twelve month blended comparable re-leasing spread of 11.6%, a new Company record.
  • Increased essential tenant mix by signing four grocer leases at properties that do not currently have a grocer.
  • Improved tenant credit by signing leases with three leading national retailers, backfilling two former Bed Bath & Beyond locations. Since the end of 2022, the Company has backfilled six of eight Bed Bath & Beyond stores, illustrating the robust demand from retailers for these spaces. Additionally, the Company is in LOI or lease negotiation regarding the remaining six locations, consisting of two former Bed Bath & Beyond stores and four buybuyBaby locations.
  • Commenced leases with several high-credit tenants including: Publix at The Crossroads, Total Wine at Dedham Point, Burlington at West Oaks II and Sierra at Northborough Crossing.
  • As previously announced, during the quarter, the Company entered into a definitive merger agreement under which RPT will be acquired by Kimco Realty Corporation ("Kimco") in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $2 billion, including the assumption of debt and preferred stock. The transaction is expected to close in the beginning of 2024, subject to RPT shareholder approval and other customary closing conditions. See the Company’s press release "Kimco Realty® to Acquire RPT Realty in All-Stock Transaction," dated August 28, 2023 for additional details.

NEW YORK, Nov. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RPT Realty (NYSE:RPT) (the "Company" or "RPT") today announced its financial and operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2023.

"Since the announcement of our pending transaction with Kimco, the organization has remained disciplined in achieving our goals. We surpassed our internal targets for the quarter and recorded the second highest quarterly leasing volume in the Company’s history, while achieving a nearly 50% new lease spread and a return on leasing capital of about 11%,” said Brian Harper, President and CEO. “The majority of leases signed continued to be with high-credit, national retailers. We signed four new grocery tenants and we replaced two more Bed Bath & Beyond vacancies. Additionally, the Company is progressing steadily towards the closing of the proposed merger with Kimco. Our continued focus and operational success gives me confidence in the combined future of our two companies."

FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net (loss) income attributable to common shareholders for the third quarter 2023 of $(7.9) million, or $(0.09) per diluted share, compared to $11.3 million, or $0.13 per diluted share for the same period in 2022.

FFO for the third quarter 2023 of $16.6 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to $24.1 million, or $0.26 per diluted share for the same period in 2022.

Operating FFO for the third quarter 2023 of $21.4 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, compared to $25.2 million or $0.27 per diluted share for the same period in 2022. Operating FFO for the third quarter 2023 excludes certain net expenses that totaled $4.8 million, primarily attributable to merger costs, partially offset by above and below market lease intangible write-offs. The change in Operating FFO per share was primarily attributable to lower NOI from dispositions completed in 2022 and higher general and administrative expenses.

Same property NOI during the third quarter 2023 increased 2.6% compared to the same period in 2022. The increase was primarily driven by higher base rent, lower rent not probable of collection and higher net recovery income, partially offset by higher non-recoverable expense.

OPERATING RESULTS

The Company’s operating results include its consolidated properties and its pro-rata share of unconsolidated joint venture properties for the aggregate portfolio.

During the third quarter 2023, the Company signed 72 leases totaling 747,672 square feet. Blended re-leasing spreads on comparable leases were 11.4% with ABR of $17.54 per square foot. Re-leasing spreads on six comparable new and 41 renewal leases were 49.9% and 7.4%, respectively.

As of September 30, 2023, the Company had $13.1 million of signed not commenced rent and recovery income.

The table below summarizes the Company’s leased rate and occupancy results at September 30, 2023, June 30, 2023 and September 30, 2022 for the same property portfolio.

Same Property Portfolio September 30, 2023 June 30, 2023 September 30, 2022
Total      
Leased rate 94.2% 94.9% 95.4%
Occupancy 89.9% 91.6% 90.1%
Anchor (GLA of 10,000 square feet or more)      
Leased rate 96.5% 97.6% 98.4%
Occupancy 91.3% 93.9% 92.3%

Leased rate 88.7% 88.3% 88.2%
Occupancy 86.5% 86.0% 84.6%

The impact of the remaining Bed Bath & Beyond closures detracted 130 and 220 basis points from the Company’s same property leased rate and occupancy, respectively, as of September 30, 2023.

BALANCE SHEET

The Company ended the third quarter 2023 with $4.6 million in consolidated cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash and $472.0 million of unused capacity on its $500.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility. At September 30, 2023, the Company had approximately $852.9 million of consolidated notional debt and finance lease obligations. Including the Company’s pro-rata share of joint venture cash and notional debt of $3.7 million and $53.8 million, respectively, resulted in a third quarter 2023 net debt to annualized adjusted EBITDA ratio of 6.9x. Proforma for the $13.1 million signed not commenced rent and recovery income balance, the net debt to annualized adjusted EBITDA ratio would be 6.3x. Total debt including RPT’s pro-rata share of joint venture debt had a weighted average interest rate of 3.76% and a weighted average maturity of 4.4 years.

DIVIDEND

As previously announced, on October 25, 2023, the Board of Trustees declared a regular cash dividend of $0.14 per common share.

(2) The total noncontrolling interest reflects OP Units convertible on a one-of-one basis into common shares.
(3) 7.25% Series D Cumulative Convertible Perpetual Preferred Shares of Beneficial Interest, $0.01 par (“Series D Preferred Shares”) are paid annual dividends of $6.7 million and are currently convertible into approximately 7.0 million shares of common stock. They are dilutive only when earnings or FFO exceed approximately $0.24 per diluted share per quarter and $0.96 per diluted share per year. The conversion ratio is subject to adjustment based upon a number of factors, and such adjustment could affect the dilutive impact of the Series D Preferred Shares on FFO and earning per share in future periods. In instances when the Preferred Share ratio exceeds basic FFO, the Preferred Shares are considered anti-dilutive, and as a result are not included in the calculation of fully diluted FFO and Operating FFO for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023.
(4) Amounts noted are included in Other (expense) income, net.
(5) For the nine months ended September 30, 2023, severance expense is comprised of one-time employee termination benefits resulting from the reduction in force during February 2023. Amounts noted are included in General and administrative expense.
(6) Amounts noted are included in General and administrative expense.

Non-GAAP Financial Definitions

Certain of our key performance indicators are considered non-GAAP financial measures. Management uses these measures along with our GAAP financial statements in order to evaluate our operations results. We believe these measures provide additional and useful means to assess our performance. These measures do not represent alternatives to GAAP measures as indicators of performance and a comparison of the Company’s presentations to similarly titled measures of other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.

Funds From Operations (FFO)
As defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), Funds From Operations (FFO) represents net income computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of operating real estate assets and impairment provisions on operating real estate assets or on investments in non-consolidated investees that are driven by measurable decreases in the fair value of operating real estate assets held by the investee, plus depreciation and amortization of depreciable real estate, (excluding amortization of financing costs). Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures are calculated to reflect funds from operations on the same basis. We have adopted the NAREIT definition in our computation of FFO.

Operating FFO
In addition to FFO, we include Operating FFO as an additional measure of our financial and operating performance. Operating FFO excludes transactions costs and periodic items such as gains (or losses) from sales of non-operating real estate assets and impairment provisions on non-operating real estate assets, bargain purchase gains, severance expense, merger costs, accelerated amortization of debt premiums, gains or losses on extinguishment of debt, insured proceeds, net, accelerated write-offs of above and below market lease intangibles, accelerated write-offs of lease incentives and payment of loan amendment fees that are not adjusted under the current NAREIT definition of FFO. We provide a reconciliation of FFO to Operating FFO. In future periods, Operating FFO may also include other adjustments, which will be detailed in the reconciliation for such measure, that we believe will enhance comparability of Operating FFO from period to period. FFO and Operating FFO should not be considered alternatives to GAAP net income available to common shareholders or as alternatives to cash flow as measures of liquidity.

While we consider FFO available to common shareholders and Operating FFO available to common shareholders useful measures for reviewing our comparative operating and financial performance between periods or to compare our performance to different REITs, our computations of FFO and Operating FFO may differ from the computations utilized by other real estate companies, and therefore, may not be comparable. We recognize the limitations of FFO and Operating FFO when compared to GAAP net income available to common shareholders. FFO and Operating FFO available to common shareholders do not represent amounts available for needed capital replacement or expansion, debt service obligations, or other commitments and uncertainties. In addition, FFO and Operating FFO do not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs, including the payment of dividends.

Net Operating Income (NOI) / Same Property NOI / NOI from Other Investments
NOI consists of (i) rental income and other property income, before straight-line rental income, amortization of lease inducements, amortization of acquired above and below market lease intangibles and lease termination fees less (ii) real estate taxes and all recoverable and non-recoverable operating expenses other than straight-line ground rent expense, in each case, including our share of these items from our R2G Venture LLC and RGMZ Venture REIT LLC unconsolidated joint ventures.

NOI, Same Property NOI and NOI from Other Investments are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures of real estate companies’ operating performance. Same Property NOI is considered by management to be a relevant performance measure of our operations because it includes only the NOI of comparable multi-tenant operating properties for the reporting period. Same Property NOI for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 represents NOI from the Company’s same property portfolio consisting of 39 consolidated operating properties and our 51.5% pro-rata share of 11 properties owned by our R2G Venture LLC unconsolidated joint venture. Given the relative immateriality of our pro-rata share of RGMZ Venture REIT LLC in all periods presented, we have excluded it from Same Property NOI. All properties included in Same Property NOI were either acquired or placed in service and stabilized prior to January 1, 2022. We present Same Property NOI primarily to show the percentage change in our NOI from period to period across a consistent pool of properties. Same Property NOI excludes properties under redevelopment or where activities have started in preparation for redevelopment. A property is designated as a redevelopment when planned improvements significantly impact the property. NOI from Other Investments for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 represents pro-rata NOI primarily from (i) properties disposed of and acquired during 2022, (ii) Hunter’s Square, Marketplace of Delray and The Crossroads (R2G) where the Company has begun activities in anticipation of future redevelopment, (iii) properties held for sale as of September 30, 2023, (iv) certain property related employee compensation, benefits, and travel expense and (v) noncomparable operating income and expense adjustments.

NOI, Same Property NOI and NOI from Other Investments should not be considered as alternatives to net income in accordance with GAAP or as measures of liquidity. Our method of calculating these measures may differ from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs.

Non-GAAP Financial Definitions (continued)

Net Debt
Net Debt represents (i) our total debt principal, which excludes unamortized premium and deferred financing costs, net, plus (ii) our finance lease obligation, plus (iii) our pro-rata share of total debt principal, which excludes unamortized discount and deferred financing costs, net, of each of our unconsolidated entities, less (iv) our cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash, less (v) our pro-rata share of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of each of our unconsolidated entities. We present net debt to show the ratio of our net debt to our proforma Adjusted EBITDA.

EBITDAre/Adjusted EBITDA/Proforma Adjusted EBITDA
NAREIT defines EBITDAre as net income computed in accordance with GAAP, plus interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization and impairment of depreciable real estate and in substance real estate equity investments; plus or minus gains or losses from sales of operating real estate assets and interests in real estate equity investments; and adjustments to reflect our share of unconsolidated real estate joint ventures and partnerships for these items. The Company calculates EBITDAre in a manner consistent with the NAREIT definition. The Company also presents Adjusted EBITDA which is EBITDAre net of other items that we believe enhance comparability of Adjusted EBITDA across periods and are listed as adjustments in the applicable reconciliation. EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative measure of operating results or cash flow from operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Pro-Rata
We present certain financial information on a “pro-rata” basis or including “pro-rata” adjustments. Unless otherwise specified, pro-rata financial information includes our proportionate economic ownership of each of our unconsolidated joint ventures derived on an entity-by-entity basis by applying the ownership percentage interest used to arrive at our share of the net operations for the period consistent with the application of the equity method of accounting to each of our unconsolidated joint ventures. See page 33 of our quarterly financial and operating supplement for a discussion of important considerations and limitations that you should be aware of when reviewing financial information that we present on a pro-rata basis or include pro-rata adjustments.

Occupancy
Occupancy is defined, for a property or group of properties, as the ratio, expressed as a percentage, of (a) the number of square feet of such property economically occupied by tenants under leases with an initial term of greater than one year, to (b) the aggregate number of square feet for such property.

Leased Rate
Leased Rate is defined, for a property or group of properties, as the ratio, expressed as a percentage, of (a) the number of square feet of such property under leases with an initial term of greater than one year, including signed leases not yet commenced, to (b) the aggregate number of square feet for such property.
