Taubman Centers, Inc. (NYSE:TCO) today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2015.

Three Months Three Months
Ended Ended

Net income attributable to common shareholders per diluted share (EPS)

$0 .47 $5 .74 (1)

Funds from Operations (FFO) per diluted share

$0 .81 (2) $0 .90

(1)

Includes a net gain of $476 million ($5.30 per share) on the sale of a 49.9 percent interest in the entity that owns International Plaza (Tampa, Fla.), as well as investments in Arizona Mills (Tempe, Ariz.) and land in Syosset, New York (Oyster Bay).

(2)

Excludes the operations of the seven centers sold to Starwood Capital Group in October 2014 and Arizona Mills, which was sold in January 2014. Includes the operations of The Mall at University Town Center (Sarasota, Fla.), which opened in October 2014, and The Mall of San Juan (San Juan, Puerto Rico), which opened in March 2015.

“We achieved strong results this quarter,” said Robert S. Taubman, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Taubman Centers. “We saw solid growth in the NOI of our core centers and were positively impacted by the excellent performance of The Mall at University Town Center.” FFO was negatively impacted by the sale of seven centers sold to Starwood in October 2014.

Operating Statistics

For the quarter, comparable center NOI excluding lease cancellation income was up 3.7 percent. Including lease cancellation income, comparable center NOI growth was 5.3 percent. Average rent per square foot for the quarter was $60.12, up 4.2 percent from $57.71 in the comparable period last year. Trailing 12-month releasing spreads per square foot for the period ended March 31, 2015 were 31.8 percent.

Mall tenant sales per square foot were up 2.3 percent from the first quarter of 2014. This brings the company’s 12-month trailing mall tenant sales per square foot to $813, an increase of 0.5 percent from the 12-months ended March 31, 2014. “We were pleased to see that sales trended modestly up for the quarter, especially in an environment with virtually no inflation,” said Mr. Taubman.

Ending occupancy in comparable centers was 92.7 percent on March 31, 2015, down 0.4 percent from 93.1 percent on March 31, 2014. Leased space in comparable centers was 95.5 percent on March 31, 2015, down 0.5 percent from 96 percent on March 31, 2014.

The Mall of San Juan Opens, Ownership Increased

On March 26, the company held the grand opening of The Mall of San Juan. The center represents the island’s first upscale shopping destination and features a singular collection of retailers – more than 60 percent of which will be unique to market – and the Caribbean’s only Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue. “It’s an extraordinary center, the most beautiful we’ve ever built,” said Mr. Taubman. The 630,000-square-foot shopping center was developed through a partnership between Taubman and New Century Development, Inc. See Shoppers Eagerly Welcome The Mall of San Juan – March 26, 2015.

On April 16, the company announced it acquired an additional 15 percent interest in the center, increasing its ownership to 95 percent. The remaining 5 percent will be retained by New Century. “We remain absolutely bullish about the long-term viability of the market and success of the project. As it stabilizes, we believe it will become one of the strongest assets in our portfolio and will create significant value for shareholders,” said Mr. Taubman. See Taubman Announces Ownership Increase in The Mall of San Juan – April 16, 2015.

Development

In April, the company announced that International Market Place, the company’s $465 million project in Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii, will open on August 25, 2016. The 360,000 square foot, open-air, retail dining and entertainment destination will be anchored by the first and only full-line Saks Fifth Avenue in Hawaii, and will feature approximately 75 stores and seven restaurants. The company continues to expect to earn an after-tax return of 7 percent at stabilization. See Michael Fenley Named General Manager of International Market Place – April 9, 2015.

The company now expects CityOn.Xi’an (Xi’an, China) to open in spring 2016 due to permitting delays. This change will not impact the company’s anticipated $115 million share of total project cost or after-tax stabilized return of 6 to 6.5 percent. CityOn.Xi’an is the approximately 1 million square foot retail and restaurant component of the 5.9 million square foot mixed-use development, Xi’an Saigao City Plaza.

Construction progress on the company’s Hanam Union Square (Hanam, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea) project is running ahead of schedule. The company now expects the opening to occur in early fall 2016. Taubman Asia and Shinsegae Group are co-developing the project. Hanam Union Square will be the largest true western style mall in Korea.

Dividend Increased

In March, the company declared a regular quarterly dividend of $0.565 per share of common stock, an increase of 4.6 percent. Since the company went public in 1992 it has never reduced its common dividend and has increased its dividend 18 times, achieving a 4.4 percent compounded annual growth rate. See Taubman Centers Increases Quarterly Common Dividend 4.6 Percent to $0.565 Per Share – March 10, 2015.

Share Repurchase Program

In March, the company announced a $250 million increase to its share repurchase program. The increase brought the company’s total authorization to $450 million. See Taubman Centers Increases Share Repurchase Program by $250 Million – March 10, 2015.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2015, the company purchased 1,153,230 shares of its common stock at an average price of $73.69 per share. Since the program’s inception in August 2013, the company has purchased 1,940,301 shares of its common stock at an average price of $70.75 per share. At March 31, 2015, the company had approximately $313 million available under its share repurchase authorization.

2015 Guidance

The company is adjusting its guidance for 2015 FFO per diluted share to $3.20 to $3.28 from the previous range of $3.18 to $3.28. This includes the impact of share repurchases through March 31, but excludes assumptions for future repurchases. This guidance also assumes comparable center NOI growth, excluding lease cancellation income, of 2.5 to 3 percent for the year, down from about 3 percent. This is due to lower than expected rent growth in the company’s Consumer Price Index escalations in the majority of the company’s tenant leases. The Index used in the formula to calculate these escalations showed zero increase at the end of February. 2015 EPS is expected to be in the range of $1.59 to $1.72.

(1) Earnings no longer reflect the results of the centers sold to the Starwood Capital Group (Starwood) for periods after the October 2014 disposition date. During the three month period ended March 31, 2014, the Company recognized a gain (net of tax) of $476.4 million from dispositions of interests in International Plaza, Arizona Mills, and land in Syosset, New York related to the former Oyster Bay project. The effect of the gain on dispositions from the International Plaza, Arizona Mills, and Oyster Bay dispositions on diluted earnings per common share (EPS) was $5.30 per share.
(2) Beneficial Interest in EBITDA represents the Operating Partnership’s share of the earnings before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization of its consolidated and unconsolidated businesses. The Company believes Beneficial Interest in EBITDA provides a useful indicator 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.
The Company uses Net Operating Income (NOI) as an alternative measure to evaluate the operating performance of centers, both on individual and stabilized portfolio bases. The Company defines NOI as property-level operating revenues (includes rental income excluding straight-line adjustments of minimum rent) less maintenance, taxes, utilities, promotion, ground rent (including straight-line adjustments), and other property operating expenses. 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. The Company also uses 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. The Company generally provides 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.
The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) defines Funds from Operations (FFO) as net income (computed in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP)), excluding gains (or losses) from extraordinary items and sales of properties and impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate, plus real estate related depreciation and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company believes 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, the Company 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. The Company primarily uses FFO in measuring performance and in formulating corporate goals and compensation.
The Company 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. The Company believes 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. For the three month period ended March 31, 2014, EBITDA was adjusted for the gain on dispositions of interests in International Plaza, Arizona Mills, and land in Syosset, New York related to the former Oyster Bay project.
These non-GAAP measures as presented by the Company 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 the Company’s operating performance. Additionally, these measures do not represent cash flows from operating, investing, or financing activities as defined by GAAP.
(3) Statistics exclude non-comparable centers for all periods presented. The March 31, 2014 statistics have been restated to include comparable centers to 2015. Sales per square foot exclude spaces greater than or equal to 10,000 square feet. In addition, Taubman Prestige Outlets Chesterfield has also been excluded from comparable trailing 12 month statistics reported for 2015 and 2014 as the center was not open for the entire 12 months ended March 31, 2014.
(4)

Based on reports of sales furnished by mall tenants. The 2014 sales statistics have been adjusted to exclude the portfolio of seven centers included in the sale to Starwood in October 2014.
