NEW YORK, Feb. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lexington Realty Trust (“Lexington”) (NYSE:LXP), a real estate investment trust focused on single-tenant real estate investments, today announced results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2015.

  • Completed 0.9 million square feet of new leases and lease extensions with overall portfolio 96.8% leased at quarter end.
  • Obtained $110.0 million 10-year non-recourse financing, which bears interest at a 4.0% fixed interest rate and is secured by the Richland, Washington property.
  • Repurchased 0.9 million common shares at an average price of $8.12 per share.

Full Year 2015 Highlights

  • Generated Company FFO of $268.0 million, or $1.10 per diluted common share.
  • Acquired/completed nine properties for an aggregate initial basis of $483.0 million.
  • Disposed of nine properties for gross proceeds of $265.2 million.
  • Completed 4.0 million square feet of new leases and lease extensions.
  • Refinanced $616 million of debt, extended weighted-average maturity to 7.2 years and lowered average borrowing cost by 50 bps to 4.01%.
  • Repurchased over 2.2 million common shares at an average price of $8.29 per share.

Subsequent Events

  • Acquired one industrial property for $29.7 million.
  • Renewed 0.7 million square feet of leases.
  • Closed on $57.5 million, 15-year, 5.2% fixed rate mortgage on newly-constructed Gateway Plaza property in Richmond, Virginia.
  • Repurchased approximately 1.0 million common shares at an average price of $7.48 per share.

T. Wilson Eglin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lexington, stated "We finished off 2015 on a strong note with good execution in all aspects of our business. During the quarter we closed on two substantial build-to-suit transactions for $253 million and subsequently obtained favorable financing on both, bringing our total acquisitions for the year to $483 million at an average cap rate of 7.4%. At year end, our overall portfolio was 96.8% leased as leasing volume remained strong at nearly one million square feet during the fourth quarter of 2015. We continue to believe our own shares represent an uncommon value and continued to execute on our share repurchase plan in the fourth quarter and into 2016."

Mr. Eglin added, "In 2015, we executed a highly successful capital recycling program and disposed of $265 million of properties at an average cap rate of 6.3%. We expect our disposition volume in 2016 will be even more robust as we look to monetize our New York City land investments and certain other properties. The proceeds will be used primarily to fund new build-to-suit projects, retire short-term debt, and repurchase common shares. We have made good progress on leasing as we begin 2016, extending 700,000 square feet of leases to date. Elevated leasing velocity and investment volume have produced high levels of occupancy, balanced lease expirations and a longer weighted-average lease term with more secure cash flow. As a result, we expect underlying cash flows to remain strong in 2016."

FINANCIAL RESULTS

Revenues

For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, total gross revenues were $106.6 million, a 1.1% decrease compared with total gross revenues of $107.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2014. The decrease is primarily due to 2015 property sales and lease expirations, partially offset by revenue generated from property acquisitions and new leases signed.

Company FFO

For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, Lexington generated Company FFO of $69.6 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to Company FFO for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 of $66.3 million, or $0.27 per diluted share. The calculation of Company FFO and a reconciliation to net income attributable to common shareholders is included later in this press release.

Dividends/Distributions

Lexington declared a regular quarterly common share/unit dividend/distribution for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 of $0.17 per common share/unit, which was paid on January 15, 2016 to common shareholders/unitholders of record as of December 31, 2015.

1 Lexington believes that Funds from Operations (“FFO”), which is not a measure under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), is a widely recognized and appropriate measure of the performance of an equity REIT. Lexington believes FFO is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their results. FFO is intended to exclude GAAP historical cost depreciation and amortization of real estate and related assets, which assumes that the value of real estate diminishes ratably over time. Historically, however, real estate values have risen or fallen with market conditions. As a result, FFO provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, reflects the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, development activities, interest costs and other matters without the inclusion of depreciation and amortization, providing perspective that may not necessarily be apparent from net income.

The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. (“NAREIT”) defines FFO as “net income (or loss) computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus real estate depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.” NAREIT clarified its computation of FFO to exclude impairment charges on depreciable real estate owned directly or indirectly. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and is not indicative of cash available to fund cash needs.

Lexington presents FFO available to common shareholders and unitholders - basic. Lexington also presents FFO available to common shareholders and unitholders - diluted on a company-wide basis as if all securities that are convertible, at the holder's option, into Lexington's common shares are converted at the beginning of the period. Lexington also presents Company FFO which adjusts FFO for certain items which Management believes are not indicative of the operating results of its real estate portfolio. Management believes this is an appropriate presentation as it is frequently requested by security analysts, investors and other interested parties. Since others do not calculate funds from operations in a similar fashion, Company FFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measures as reported by others. Company FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity.

2 Company Funds Available for Distribution ("FAD") is calculated by making adjustments to Company FFO for (1) straight-line rent revenue, (2) lease incentive amortization, (3) amortization of above/below market leases, (4) lease termination payments, net, (5) non-cash interest, net, (6) non-cash charges, net, (7) cash paid for tenant improvements, and (8) cash paid for lease costs. Although FAD may not be comparable to that of other REITs, Lexington believes it provides a meaningful indication of its ability to fund cash needs. FAD is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be viewed as an alternative measurement of operating performance to net income, as an alternative to net cash flows from operating activities or as a measure of liquidity.
