Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, included gains on sales of apartment communities of $163.7 million, offset by losses on the extinguishment of indebtedness of $16.6 million, both net of noncontrolling interest.

Funds From Operations

The Company uses the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) definition of Funds from Operations (“FFO”) as an operating measure of the Company’s financial performance. A reconciliation of FFO to GAAP net income is included in the financial data (Table 1) accompanying this press release.

FFO for the third quarter of 2014 was $26.2 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, compared to $39.9 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013. For the third quarter of 2014, Core FFO (excluding FFO from condominium activities) was $25.4 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, compared to $34.6 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013.

FFO for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $93.0 million, or $1.70 per diluted share, compared to $128.3 million, or $2.34 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, Core FFO (excluding FFO from condominium activities) was $91.4 million, or $1.67 per diluted share, compared to $100.8 million, or $1.84 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

FFO and Core FFO included losses on extinguishment of indebtedness of $12.3 million, net of noncontrolling interest, or $0.23 per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and $16.6 million, net of noncontrolling interest, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

Said Dave Stockert, the Company’s CEO and President, “The third quarter was a productive and successful one. Highlights included another double-digit increase in per share adjusted core funds from operations and a highly profitable sale of assets, providing the Company with substantial low-cost capital to fund future investments.”

Same Store Community Data

Average economic occupancy at the Company’s 48 same store communities, containing 17,714 apartment units, was 96.6% and 96.4% for the third quarter of 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Total revenues for the same store communities increased 2.5% and total operating expenses increased 3.5% during the third quarter of 2014, compared to the third quarter of 2013, producing a 1.9% increase in same store net operating income (“NOI”). The average monthly rental rate per unit increased 2.3% during the third quarter of 2014, compared to the third quarter of 2013.

On a sequential basis, total revenues for the same store communities increased 1.5% and total operating expenses decreased 0.7%, resulting in a 3.0% increase in same store NOI for the third quarter of 2014, compared to the second quarter of 2014. On a sequential basis, the average monthly rental rate per unit increased 1.0%. For the third quarter of 2014, average economic occupancy at the same store communities was 96.6%, compared to 96.2% for the second quarter of 2014.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, average economic occupancy at the Company’s same store communities was 96.1% compared to 95.8% for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Total revenues for the same store communities increased 2.6% and total operating expenses increased 4.8% during the first nine months of 2014, compared to the first nine months of 2013, producing a 1.3% increase in same store NOI. The average monthly rental rate per unit increased 2.3% for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Investment Activity

Development Activity

The Company announced today the commencement of the development of the second phase at its Post ParksideTM at Wade apartment community located in Raleigh, North Carolina. Post ParksideTM at Wade, Phase II is planned to consist of 391 luxury apartment units with an average unit size of approximately 872 square feet. The second phase is expected to have a total estimated development cost of approximately $53.0 million, and is expected to produce an estimated stabilized yield on cost of approximately 5.8%, calculated on current market rents and after a 3% management fee and $300 per unit replacement reserve. The Company anticipates that first apartment unit deliveries will occur in the first quarter of 2016.

In the aggregate, the Company has 1,592 units in five apartment communities, and approximately 10,556 square feet of retail space, under development or in lease-up with a total estimated cost of $283.8 million, and a remaining funding requirement of $156.2 million. The Company believes it has adequate internal resources, as well as sufficient capacity on its unsecured lines of credit, to fund its development commitments.

Disposition Activity

As previously announced in September 2014, the Company closed the sale of two apartment communities, located in New York, NY, for a total gross sales price of $270 million. A portion of the net proceeds from the sales were used to prepay approximately $82.6 million of secured mortgage indebtedness encumbering the two communities along with related prepayment premiums.

In conjunction with the sale of the New York communities, the Company recognized a gain on sale of $127.7 million, net of noncontrolling interest, or $2.34 per diluted share, as well as losses on early extinguishment of indebtedness of $12.3 million, net of noncontrolling interest, or $0.23 per diluted share, during the third quarter of 2014.

Financing Activity

Leverage, Line and Term Loan Capacity

Total debt and preferred equity as a percentage of undepreciated real estate assets (adjusted for joint venture partners’ share of real estate assets and debt) was 31.7% at September 30, 2014.

As of October 27, 2014, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $134.9 million. The Company had no outstanding borrowings and letters of credit totaling $0.1 million under its combined $330 million unsecured lines of credit. The Company has no principal debt maturities until 2017.

Computations of debt ratios and reconciliations of the ratios to the appropriate GAAP measures in the Company’s financial statements are included in the financial data (Table 4) accompanying this press release.

At-the-Market Common Equity Activity

The Company has available an at-the-market (“ATM”) common equity program that provides for the sale of up to 4 million shares of common stock. As of September 30, 2014, and since its inception, no shares have been issued under that program. Sales under this program are dependent upon a variety of factors, including, among others, market conditions, the trading price of the Company’s common stock, the Company’s liquidity position and the potential use of proceeds.

Information Technology Systems Initiatives

The Company has substantially completed the process of upgrading and replacing its financial and property management information technology systems. As part of this project, in addition to other system implementation costs capitalized, the Company was required to expense certain up-front implementation and training costs. These expensed system implementation costs totaled $0.3 million and $1.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, respectively. These expenses are currently projected to total approximately $1.2 million for the full year of 2014.

2014 Outlook

The estimates and assumptions presented below are forward looking and are based on the Company’s future view of its apartment markets and of general economic conditions, as well as other risks outlined below under the caption “Forward-Looking Statements.” There can be no assurance that the Company’s actual results will not differ materially from the estimates set forth below. The Company assumes no obligation to update this guidance in the future.

Based on its current outlook, the Company anticipates that FFO per diluted share for the full year 2014 will be in the range set forth below. The tables below reflect net gains from condominium sales (for purposes of this discussion, “Condo FFO”) and FFO before Condo FFO (for purposes of this discussion, “Core FFO”). Adjusted Funds from Operations (“AFFO”) per share is defined as FFO per share less operating property capital expenditures after adjusting for the impact of non-cash straight-line long-term ground lease expense and debt extinguishment losses. Core AFFO represents AFFO excluding net gains from condominium sales.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Defined Terms

The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures and other defined terms in this press release and in its Supplemental Financial Data available on the Company’s website. The non-GAAP financial measures include FFO, Adjusted Funds from Operations (“AFFO”), net operating income, same store capital expenditures, and certain debt statistics and ratios. The definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures are listed below and on page 19 of the Supplemental Financial Data. The Company believes that these measures are helpful to investors in measuring financial performance and/or liquidity and comparing such performance and/or liquidity to other REITs.

Funds from Operations – The Company uses FFO as an operating measure. The Company uses the NAREIT definition of FFO. FFO is defined by NAREIT to mean net income (loss) available to common shareholders determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from extraordinary items and sales of depreciable operating property, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, and after adjustment for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures all determined on a consistent basis in accordance with GAAP. FFO presented in the Company’s press release and Supplemental Financial Data is not necessarily comparable to FFO presented by other real estate companies because not all real estate companies use the same definition. The Company’s FFO is comparable to the FFO of real estate companies that use the current NAREIT definition.

Accounting for real estate assets using historical cost accounting under GAAP assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. NAREIT stated in its April 2002 White Paper on Funds from Operations that “since real estate asset values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors have considered presentations of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by themselves.” As a result, the concept of FFO was created by NAREIT for the REIT industry to provide an alternate measure. Since the Company agrees with the concept of FFO and appreciates the reasons surrounding its creation, the Company believes that FFO is an important supplemental measure of operating performance. In addition, since most equity REITs provide FFO information to the investment community, the Company believes that FFO is a useful supplemental measure for comparing the Company’s results to those of other equity REITs. The Company believes that the line on its consolidated statement of operations entitled “net income available to common shareholders” is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to FFO.

Adjusted Funds From Operations – The Company also uses AFFO as an operating measure. AFFO is defined as FFO less operating capital expenditures and after adjusting for the impact of non-cash straight-line long-term ground lease expense, non-cash impairment charges, debt extinguishment gains (losses) and preferred stock redemption costs. The Company believes that AFFO is an important supplemental measure of operating performance for an equity REIT because it provides investors with an indication of the REIT’s ability to fund its operating capital expenditures through earnings. In addition, since most equity REITs provide AFFO information to the investment community, the Company believes that AFFO is a useful supplemental measure for comparing the Company to other equity REITs. The Company believes that the line on its consolidated statement of operations entitled “net income available to common shareholders” is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to AFFO.

Property Net Operating Income (“NOI”) – The Company uses property NOI, including same store NOI and same store NOI by market, as an operating measure. NOI is defined as rental and other revenues from real estate operations less total property and maintenance expenses from real estate operations (exclusive of depreciation and amortization). The Company believes that NOI is an important supplemental measure of operating performance for a REIT’s operating real estate because it provides a measure of the core operations, rather than factoring in depreciation and amortization, financing costs and general and administrative expenses generally incurred at the corporate level. This measure is particularly useful, in the opinion of the Company, in evaluating the performance of geographic operations, same store groupings and individual properties. Additionally, the Company believes that NOI, as defined, is a widely accepted measure of comparative operating performance in the real estate investment community. The Company believes that the line on its consolidated statement of operations entitled “net income” is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to NOI.

Same Store Capital Expenditures – The Company uses same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures as cash flow measures. Same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures are important indicators of the costs incurred by the Company in maintaining its same store communities on an ongoing basis. The corresponding GAAP measures include information with respect to the Company’s other operating segments consisting of newly stabilized communities, lease-up communities, held for sale communities, sold communities and commercial properties in addition to same store information. Therefore, the Company believes that the Company’s presentation of same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures is necessary to demonstrate same store replacement costs over time. The Company believes that the most directly comparable GAAP measure to same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures is the line on the Company’s consolidated statements of cash flows entitled “property capital expenditures,” which also includes revenue generating capital expenditures.

Debt Statistics and Debt Ratios – The Company uses a number of debt statistics and ratios as supplemental measures of liquidity. The numerator and/or the denominator of certain of these statistics and/or ratios include non-GAAP financial measures that have been reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. These debt statistics and ratios include: (1) interest coverage ratios; (2) fixed charge coverage ratios; (3) total debt as a percentage of undepreciated real estate assets (adjusted for joint venture partner’s share of debt); (4) total debt plus preferred equity as a percentage of undepreciated real estate assets (adjusted for joint venture partner’s share of debt); (5) a ratio of consolidated debt to total assets; (6) a ratio of secured debt to total assets; (7) a ratio of total unencumbered assets to unsecured debt; (8) a ratio of consolidated income available for debt service to annual debt service charge; and (9) a debt to annualized income available for debt service ratio. A number of these debt statistics and ratios are derived from covenants found in the Company’s debt agreements, including, among others, the Company’s senior unsecured notes. In addition, the Company presents these measures because the degree of leverage could affect the Company’s ability to obtain additional financing for working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions, development or other general corporate purposes. The Company uses these measures internally as an indicator of liquidity, and the Company believes that these measures are also utilized by the investment and analyst communities to better understand the Company’s liquidity.

The Company uses income available for debt service to calculate certain debt ratios and statistics. Income available for debt service is defined as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, gains on sales of real estate assets, non-cash impairment charges and other non-cash income and expenses. Income available for debt service is a supplemental measure of operating performance that does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or cash flow from operating activities as determined under GAAP, and the Company’s calculation thereof may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other companies, including EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA.

Property Operating Statistics – The Company uses average economic occupancy, gross turnover, net turnover and percentage increases in rent for new and renewed leases as statistical measures of property operating performance. The Company defines average economic occupancy as gross potential rent less vacancy losses, model expenses and bad debt expenses divided by gross potential rent for the period, expressed as a percentage. Gross turnover is defined as the percentage of leases expiring during the period that are not renewed by the existing residents. Net turnover is defined as gross turnover decreased by the percentage of expiring leases where the residents transfer to a new apartment unit in the same community or in another Post(R) community. The percentage increases in rent for new and renewed leases are calculated using the respective new or renewed rental rate as of the date of a new lease, as compared with the previous rental rate on that same unit.
