MONTREAL, March 23, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ - PRO Real Estate Investment Trust ("PROREIT" or the "REIT") (TSX: PRV.UN) today reported its financial and operating results for the three-month (or "fourth quarter" or "Q4") and twelve-month (or "full year") periods ended December 31, 2021.  

"Q4 2021 was an outstanding quarter that capped off an exceptional year for PROREIT, both financially and operationally. Despite the complexities and disruptions resulting from the ongoing pandemic, we successfully accelerated our growth as an industrial focused REIT, completing the accretive acquisitions of 34 industrial properties and reaching $990 million in assets by year-end. We did so while significantly strengthening our balance sheet and credit facility," said Jim Beckerleg, President and CEO, PROREIT.

"Our business fundamentals are strong and our strategic focus on mid-sized Canadian cities with robust economies has proven its merit. Our industrial portfolio, which now accounts for 78% of our gross leasable area and over 63% of our base rent, has significant growth potential largely due to an upward trend in rental rates in the Southwestern Ontario, Ottawa, Halifax and Winnipeg markets where we have a strong presence. Independent appraisals of a large portion of our portfolio confirmed the significant increases in the fair value of our properties. With the regular review of the fair value property appraisals in 2022, we are confident to recognize further increases embedded in our portfolio.

"With Same Property NOI1 increases recorded in all asset classes, we are pleased with the performance of both our retail and office segments in a persistent COVID-19 context, highlighting the quality assets we own in these segments, coupled with our low-risk tenant roster.

"Our record equity raise in 2021, from a public offering and private placements, was successfully deployed by year-end, in line with our objective to create long-term value for our unitholders. We pursued strategic financing initiatives, resulting in a decrease in our Debt to Gross Book Value1 to 53.1% at year-end, closing the year with $45 million available on our credit facility. In the medium term, we remain committed to our strategy of reducing our ratio below 50%.

"In 2021 and early 2022, we made important progress in our ESG journey with the introduction of our first ESG report, outlining progress to date and providing visibility on the areas that we will continue to focus on going forward.

"With 2022 now well underway, we look forward with optimism and confidence in our team, our assets and our strategy.  While remaining steadfast on optimizing our strong and flexible financial position and maintaining our disciplined capital allocation, we intend to strategically pursue our growth in the industrial sector where rent growth remains, with the ultimate goal of creating sustainable value for all stakeholders," Mr. Beckerleg concluded.

For the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2021:  

  • Property revenue amounted to $77.7 million, an increase of $7.9 million, or 11.3%, compared to $69.8 million for the prior year. The increase was mainly driven by the incremental revenue from net acquisition activity over the past twelve-month period.
  • Same Property NOI1 amounted to $39.1 million, an increase of $1.6 million, or 4.3%, compared to the prior year. Excluding COVID-19 related expenses and one-time office revenue recorded in 2020 totalling $0.4 million, Same Property NOI increased by 3.1% in 2021 compared to the prior year, reflecting an overall increase in occupancy, contractual rent increases and higher rental rates on lease renewals.
  • Net operating income1 was $46.3 million, an increase of $5.8 million, or 14.2%, compared to $40.5 million in 2020. The increase mainly resulted from the favourable impact of net property acquisitions completed over the past twelve-month period.
  • AFFO1 totaled $25.1 million, an increase of $2.7 million, or 11.7%, compared to $22.4 million for the same prior year period. The increase mainly relates to net acquisition activity over the past twelve-month period.
  • AFFO Payout Ratio - Basic1 stood at 87.7%, compared to 88.3% for the prior year. The improvement mainly relates to net acquisition activity over the past twelve months and the reduction in monthly distributions starting April 2020, partially offset by increases in maintenance capital expenditures, leasing costs, and general and administrative expenses.

For the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2021: 

  • Property revenue amounted to $22.9 million, an increase of $5.3 million, or 30.4%, compared to $17.6 million for the same prior year period. The increase was mainly driven by incremental revenues from net acquisition activity over the last twelve-month period.
  • Same Property NOI1 reached $10.1 million, an increase of $0.5 million, or 5.5%, compared to the same prior year period. Excluding COVID-19 related expenses and one-time office revenue recorded in Q4-2020 totalling $0.05 million, Same Property NOI increased by 5.0% in Q4 2021 compared to the same period in the prior year, as a result of overall increase in occupancy, contractual rent increases and higher rental rates on lease renewals.
  • Net operating income1 amounted to $13.4 million, compared to $10.0 million in the same period in 2020, an increase of 33.6% mainly driven by the impact of the net property acquisitions over the last twelve-month period.
  • AFFO1 totaled $7.4 million, an increase of $2.0 million, or 37.0%, compared to $5.4 million for the same prior year period, mainly driven by the impact of the net acquisition activity over the last twelve-month period.
  • AFFO Payout Ratio - Basic1 stood at 91.5% compared to 83.9% for the same prior year period. The change is mainly due to timing between cash receipts from the equity raises in Q4 2021 and the deployment of funds for the purchase of properties in the same quarter, in addition to increases in maintenance capital expenditures, leasing costs, and general and administrative expenses in relation to the growth of the REIT.

For the year ended December 31, 2021, net income and comprehensive income amounted to $81.8 million, an increase of $60.8 million compared to $21.1 million for the prior year. This increase is mainly attributable to the favourable $67.8 million non-cash fair value adjustment on investment properties, $5.7 million favourable impact in net operating income, partially offset by the $6.3 million impact of the non-cash fair value adjustment on Class B LP Units (as defined herein) for the twelve-month period ending December 31, 2021, compared to 2020. During the year ended December 31, 2021, PROREIT updated independent external appraisals for 50 properties, including 38 industrial properties, resulting in a fair market value gain of approximately $63.2 million.

For the three months ended December 31, 2021, net income and comprehensive income amounted to $65 million, compared to $6.4 million for the prior year. The $58.6 million increase mainly relates to a favourable $53.0 million impact in the non-cash fair value adjustment on investment properties for the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to the prior year, partially offset by the $2.0 million variance in non-cash long-term incentive plan expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020. During the three months ended December 31, 2021, PROREIT updated independent external appraisals for 37 properties, including 28 industrial properties, resulting in a fair market value gain of approximately $58.6 million.

Solid Balance Sheet and Liquidity Position

PROREIT strategically improved its balance sheet, debt profile and available credit position in 2021. As at December 31, 2021, PROREIT had $45 million available on its credit facility. Debt to Gross Book Value1 was reduced to 53.1% at December 31, 2021, from and 57.8% at December 31, 2020. The weighted average interest on mortgage debt was 3.39% at December 31, 2021, compared to 3.73% at the same date in 2020.

In February 2021, PROREIT obtained $46.6 million in new mortgage financing with an extended ten-year repayment term at a rate of 3.21%. Proceeds were mainly used to repay mortgages maturing in 2021 and 2022, and to reduce operating facilities.

In April 2021, PROREIT closed its $50 million private placement with Collingwood Investments Incorporated, a member of the Bragg Group of Companies of Nova Scotia, to partially fund acquisitions, repay certain indebtedness, for future acquisitions and for general business and working capital.

In June 2021, PROREIT also entered into a new $24.8 million mortgage financing with a term of seven years at a rate of 3.70%, to refinance six retail properties.

In October 2021, PROREIT closed its public offering on a bought deal basis for gross proceeds of $69 million while concurrently completing a private placement with Collingwood Investments Incorporated for additional gross proceeds of $14.3 million. Proceeds were used to fund acquisitions and to repay a portion of PROREIT's credit facility.

In November 2021, PROREIT renewed and increased its credit facility to $60 million, from $45 million, with improved terms.

Portfolio Growth

In line with its growth strategy focused on the industrial sector, PROREIT acquired 34 institutional-calibre industrial assets in 2021 totaling 2.3 million square feet for a total purchase price of $296.9 million (excluding closing costs) and a 6% average capitalization rate. 21 properties are located in Atlantic Canada, 10 properties are in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and three properties are in Ottawa, Ontario.

PROREIT sold five non-core properties totaling 0.2 million square feet for gross proceeds of $20.9 million, above their IFRS carrying value.

At December 31 2021, PROREIT's portfolio totaled 120 properties aggregating 6.6 million square feet with a weighted average lease term of 4.6 years. The industrial segment accounted for 78% of GLA and 63% of base rent at December 31, 2021.

Operating Performance

Occupancy rate remains strong at 98.4% as at December 31, 2021, slightly up from 98.0% a year earlier.

Approximately 97% of leases maturing in 2021 are renewed with an average increase of 10.2%, while almost half of 2022 renewals are renewed at positive spread of 10.1%.

In this press release, as a complement to results provided in accordance with IFRS, PROREIT discloses and discusses (i) certain non-IFRS financial measures, including: adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA"); adjusted funds from operations ("AFFO"); funds from operations ("FFO"); gross book value ("Gross Book Value"); net operating income ("NOI"); Same Property NOI; and (ii) certain non-IFRS ratios, including: AFFO Payout Ratio – Basic; AFFO Payout Ratio – Diluted; Basic AFFO per Unit; Diluted AFFO per Unit; Basic AFFO per Unit; Diluted FFO per Unit; Debt to Gross Book Value; Debt Service Coverage Ratio; Interest Coverage Ratio. These non-IFRS measures are not defined by IFRS and do not have a standardized meaning under IFRS. PROREIT's method of calculating these non-IFRS measures may differ from other issuers and may not be comparable with similar measures presented by other income trusts. PROREIT has presented such non-IFRS measures and ratios as management believes they are relevant measures of PROREIT's underlying operating and financial performance. For information on the most directly comparable IFRS measures, composition of the non-IFRS measures, a description of how PROREIT uses these measures and an explanation of how these measures provide useful information to investors, refer to the "Non-IFRS Measures" section of PROREIT's management's discussion and analysis for the three months and year ended December 31, 2021, dated March 23, 2022 (the "Q4 MD&A"), available on PROREIT's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com, which is incorporated by reference into this press release. As applicable, the reconciliations for each non-IFRS measure are outlined below.
