Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2015 Results; Provides 10% to 15% Distribution Growth Guidance for 2016

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Feb. 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP (the “Partnership,” “we,” “us” or “our”) (Nasdaq:LMRK) today announced fourth quarter and full year 2015 financial results.

Highlights:

  • Increased quarterly cash distribution for the fourth consecutive quarter to $0.325 per unit, representing 13.0% distribution growth in 2015;
  • Completed three drop-down acquisitions in Q4 from Landmark Dividend LLC (“Landmark”), or an affiliate of Landmark, bringing the total number of acquired tenant sites for the year to 761 sites for total consideration of approximately $268 million;
  • Provides 2016 guidance, which includes distribution growth guidance of 10% to 15% by the fourth quarter 2016 (distribution to be paid in February 2017); and
  • Maintained 98% occupancy level for the portfolio.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2015 Results
For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, the Partnership generated Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization) of $6.4 million and distributable cash flow of approximately $4.6 million. Additionally, the Partnership generated net income of $2.8 million, or $0.20 per common unit diluted, and EBITDA of approximately $6.7 million. The net income and EBITDA amounts include the impact of $1.5 million of unrealized gain on derivatives and $0.7 million of acquisition-related expenses. These Adjusted EBITDA, EBITDA, distributable cash flow, and net loss amounts exclude operating results prior to the date of the Partnership’s acquisitions that are attributable to assets acquired from Landmark in the fourth quarter of 2015.

For the year ended December 31, 2015, the Partnership generated net income of $0.7 million, EBITDA of $11.6 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $18.8 million and distributable cash flow of $13.9 million. These Adjusted EBITDA, EBITDA, distributable cash flow, and net loss amounts exclude operating results prior to the date of the Partnership’s acquisitions that are attributable to assets acquired from Landmark in 2015.

“Building on our strong performance this year, we completed three drop-down transactions in the fourth quarter and in total acquired 761 tenant sites during 2015,” said Tim Brazy, the Partnership’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are very proud that in our first full year of operation as a public entity, we more than doubled the size of the Partnership’s tenant site portfolio and delivered on the annual rents and distribution growth guidance we provided last year. As we enter 2016, we continue to see opportunities in the market and look forward to further growth.”

Quarterly Distribution
As previously announced, on January 28, 2016, the Board of Directors of the Partnership’s general partner declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.325 per limited partner unit, or $1.30 per unit on an annualized basis, for the quarter ended December 31, 2015. The fourth quarter’s cash distribution, which represents a 13.0% increase over the minimum quarterly distribution and a 2.4% increase compared to the third quarter 2015 distribution of $0.3175 per unit, marks the fourth consecutive quarter that the Partnership has increased its quarterly cash distribution since its initial public offering in November 2014. The distribution was paid on February 12, 2016 to unitholders of record as of February 8, 2016.

Capital and Liquidity
As of December 31, 2015, the Partnership had $233.0 million of outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility (the “Facility”) and $17.0 million of undrawn borrowing capacity under the Facility, subject to compliance with certain covenants. The Partnership has fixed $145.0 million of borrowings under the Facility with a weighted average fixed interest rate of 4.06%.

Recent Drop-Down Acquisitions
During the fourth quarter of 2015, the Partnership completed three drop-down acquisitions from Landmark or an affiliate of Landmark, acquiring a total of 249 tenant sites for total consideration of approximately $98 million.

  • On November 19, 2015, the Partnership completed a right of first offer (ROFO) Fund C drop-down acquisition of 72 tenant sites for total consideration of $30.0 million. The consideration for the Fund C ROFO drop-down acquisition consisted of approximately 847,000 common units representing limited partnership interests in us, valued at $12.7 million, and $17.3 million in cash;
  • On November 19, 2015, the Partnership completed a ROFO Fund F drop-down acquisition of 136 tenant sites for total consideration of $44.0 million. The consideration for the Fund F ROFO drop-down acquisition consisted of approximately 1,266,000 common units representing limited partnership interests in us, valued at $19.0 million, and $25.0 million in cash; and
  • On December 18, 2015, the Partnership completed a drop-down acquisition of 41 tenant sites for total consideration of $24.2 million in cash.

Each of these acquisitions were immediately accretive to the Partnership’s distributable cash flow, and were funded primarily with borrowings under the Partnership’s existing Facility and the issuance of units. During fiscal year 2015 the Partnership completed eight drop-down acquisitions from Landmark or an affiliate of Landmark, acquiring a total of 761 tenant sites for total consideration of approximately $268 million.

2016 Guidance
For 2016, the Partnership’s sponsor, Landmark, has expressed its intent to offer us the right to purchase assets ranging from $200 million to $300 million in total. These drop-downs, combined with organic portfolio growth expected from contractual rent escalators, leasing activity and revenue sharing arrangements, are expected to drive distribution growth of 10% to 15% over the fourth quarter 2015 distribution of $0.325 per unit by the fourth quarter 2016 (distribution to be paid in February 2017).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We define EBITDA as net income before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and we define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA before unrealized and realized gain or loss on derivatives, loss on early extinguishment of debt, gain on sale of real property interests, straight line rent adjustments, amortization of above and below market rents, impairments, acquisition-related expenses, unit-based compensation, and the capital contribution to fund our general and administrative expense reimbursement. We define distributable cash flow as Adjusted EBITDA less cash interest paid, current cash income tax paid and maintenance capital expenditures. Distributable cash flow will not reflect changes in working capital balances. We believe that to understand our performance further, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow should be compared with our reported net income and net cash provided by operating activities in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), as presented in our combined financial statements.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are non-GAAP supplemental financial measures that management and external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, may use to assess:

  • our operating performance as compared to other publicly traded limited partnerships, without regard to historical cost basis or, in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, financing methods;
  • the ability of our business to generate sufficient cash to support our decision to make distributions to our unitholders;
  • our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and
  • the viability of acquisitions and the returns on investment of various investment opportunities.

We believe that the presentation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow provides information useful to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are net income and net cash provided by operating activities. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Each of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow has important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income and net cash provided by operating activities, and these measures may vary from those of other companies. You should not consider EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. As a result, because EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow may be defined differently by other companies in our industry, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow as presented below may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility. For a reconciliation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow to the most comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, please see the “Reconciliation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow” table below.

Safe Harbor
This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of federal securities laws. These statements discuss future expectations, contain projections of results of operations or of financial condition or state other forward-looking information. You can identify forward-looking statements by words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “project,” “could,” “may,” “should,” “would,” “will” or other similar expressions that convey the uncertainty of future events or outcomes. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond the Partnership’s control and are difficult to predict. These statements are often based upon various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including examination of historical operating trends made by the management of the Partnership. Although the Partnership believes that these assumptions were reasonable when made, because assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies, which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond its control, the Partnership cannot give assurance that it will achieve or accomplish these expectations, beliefs or intentions. Examples of forward-looking statements in this press release include the payment of our quarterly distribution, the discussion of potential acquisitions from our sponsor, and our expected distribution growth. When considering these forward-looking statements, you should keep in mind the risk factors and other cautionary statements contained in the Partnership’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Partnership’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015. These risks could cause the Partnership’s actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement.

(1) “Available Tenant Sites” means the number of individual sites that could be leased. For example, if we have an easement on a single rooftop, on which three different tenants can lease space from us, this would be counted as three “tenant sites,” and all three tenant sites would be at a single infrastructure location with the same address.
(2) Assumes the exercise of all remaining renewal options of tenant leases. Assuming no exercise of renewal options, the average remaining lease terms for our wireless communication, outdoor advertising, renewable power generation and aggregate portfolios as of December 31, 2015 were 5.2, 8.3, 21.8 and 6.0 years, respectively.
(3) Represents the number of leased tenant sites divided by the number of available tenant sites.
(4) Occupancy and average monthly effective rent per tenant site are shown only on an aggregate portfolio basis by industry.
(5) Represents total monthly revenue excluding the impact of amortization of above and below market lease intangibles divided by the number of leased tenant sites.
(6) Represents GAAP rental revenue recognized under existing tenant leases for the three months ended December 31, 2015. Excludes interest income on receivables.
(7) Fee simple ownership and perpetual easements are shown as having a term of 99 years for purposes of calculating the average remaining term.
(8) Reflects “springing lease agreements” whereby the cancellation or nonrenewal of a tenant lease entitles us to enter into a new ground lease with the property owner (up to the full property interest term) and a replacement tenant lease. The remaining lease assignment term is, therefore, equal to or longer than the remaining lease term. Also represents properties for which the “springing lease” feature has been exercised and has been replaced by a lease for the remaining lease term.
(9) Excluding perpetual ownership rights, the average remaining property interest term on our tenant sites is approximately 67 years.

(1) Financial information prior to the closing of the transactions has been retroactively adjusted for certain assets acquired during the year ended December 31, 2015. See reconciliation of operations, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and distributable cash flow for the periods presented.
(2) Under the omnibus agreement that we entered into with Landmark at the closing of our initial public offering, we agreed to reimburse Landmark for expenses related to certain general and administrative services that Landmark will provide to us in support of our business, subject to a quarterly cap equal to the greater of $162,500 and 3% of our revenue during the preceding calendar quarter. This cap on expenses will last until the earlier to occur of: (i) the date on which our revenue for the immediately preceding four consecutive fiscal quarters exceeded $80.0 million and (ii) November 19, 2019. The full amount of general and administrative expenses incurred will be reflected in our income statements, and to the extent such general and administrative expenses exceed the cap amount, the amount of such excess will be reflected in our financial statements as a capital contribution from Landmark rather than as a reduction of our general and administrative expenses, except for expenses that would otherwise be allocated to us, which are not included in our general and administrative expenses.

(1) During the year ended December 31, 2015, the Partnership completed its acquisitions of 761 tenant sites and related real property interests from Landmark and affiliates (the “Acquired Assets”). The assets and liabilities acquired are recorded at the historical cost of Landmark, as the transactions are between entities under common control, the statements of operations of the Partnership are adjusted retroactively as if the transactions occurred on the earliest date during which the entities were under common control. The historical financial statements have been retroactively adjusted to reflect the results of operations, financial position, and cash flows of the Acquired Assets as if the Partnership owned the Acquired Assets in all periods while under common control. The reconciliation presents our results of operations and financial position giving effect to the Acquired Assets. The combined results of the Acquired Assets prior to each transaction date are included in “Acquired Assets Predecessor.” The consolidated results of the Acquired Assets after each transaction date are included in “Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP.”
(2) Under the omnibus agreement that we entered into with Landmark at the closing of the IPO, we agreed to reimburse Landmark for expenses related to certain general and administrative services that Landmark will provide to us in support of our business, subject to a quarterly cap equal to the greater of $162,500 and 3% of our revenue during the preceding calendar quarter. This cap on expenses will last until the earlier to occur of: (i) the date on which our revenue for the immediately preceding four consecutive fiscal quarters exceeded $80.0 million and (ii) November 19, 2019. The full amount of general and administrative expenses incurred will be reflected in our income statements, and to the extent such general and administrative expenses exceed the cap amount, the amount of such excess will be reflected in our financial statements as a capital contribution from Landmark rather than as a reduction of our general and administrative expenses, except for expenses that would otherwise be allocated to us, which are not included in our general and administrative expenses.
(3) Coverage ratio is calculated as the distributable cash flow for the quarter divided by the distributions to the limited partners on the weighted average units outstanding.
