W. P. Carey Announces First Quarter Financial Results

May 7, 2012

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 05/07/12 -- Investment firm W. P. Carey & Co. LLC (NYSE: WPC) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

QUARTERLY RESULTS

  • Funds from operations -- as adjusted (AFFO) totaled $40.1 million or $0.99 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012 compared to $39.1 million or $0.97 for the first quarter of 2011.

  • The company recorded cash used in operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2012 of $4.1 million and cash flow from operating activities of $6.7 million for the comparable prior year period, while adjusted cash flow from operating activities was $36.7 million in the first quarter of 2012 compared to $24.2 million in the first quarter last year.

  • Total revenues net of reimbursed expenses for the first quarter of 2012 decreased to $50.7 million from $58.2 million for the first quarter of 2011. Reimbursed expenses are excluded from total revenues because they have no impact on net income.

  • Net Income for the first quarter of 2012 was $12.3 million, compared to $23.3 million for the same period in 2011.

  • We received approximately $8.1 million in cash distributions from our equity ownership in the CPA® REITs for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.

  • Further information concerning AFFO and adjusted cash flow from operating activities -- non-GAAP supplemental performance metrics -- is presented in the accompanying tables.

PROPOSED CONVERSION TO REIT AND MERGER WITH CPA®:15

  • On February 21, 2012, we announced that our Board of Directors had approved our conversion to a real estate investment trust ("REIT") and that our Board of Directors and the Board of Directors of our publicly held, non-traded REIT affiliate, Corporate Property Associates 15 Incorporated ("CPA®:15"), had unanimously approved a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which W. P. Carey will acquire CPA®:15 immediately following the REIT conversion. These transactions are subject to requisite shareholder approvals and other closing conditions. If the proposed merger is approved and the other closing conditions are satisfied, we currently expect that the closing will occur by the third quarter of 2012, although there can be no assurance of such timing.

CPA®:17 - GLOBAL ACTIVITY

  • CPA®:17 - Global's follow-on offering was declared effective by the SEC in April 2011, and its initial public offering was terminated. We have raised more than $2.1 billion on behalf of CPA®:17 - Global since beginning fundraising in December 2007. The follow-on offering is for up to an additional $1 billion of CPA®:17 - Global's common stock.

  • Investment volume for CPA®:17 - Global in the first quarter of 2012 was approximately $171.7 million compared to $345 million in the prior year period.

  • In the first quarter of 2012, we completed a sale-leaseback with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, which included the acquisition of eight office facilities totaling approximately 1.1 million square feet.

  • In April 2012, we agreed to provide a EUR 20 million ($26 million) construction financing package for Nippon Sheet Glass Co., Ltd ("NSG Group") to develop a 377,500 square foot warehouse facility in Poland.

CAREY WATERMARK INVESTORS ACTIVITY

  • From the beginning of its initial public offering, our lodging-focused non-traded REIT offering has raised more than $59 million.

  • In the second quarter of 2012, Carey Watermark Investors' joint venture with HRI Properties completed an agreement with Hard Rock International, owner of the Hard Rock Cafe brand, to lease an approximately 10,000 square foot location in the Chateau Bourbon Hotel.

ASSETS UNDER OWNERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT

  • W. P. Carey is the advisor to the CPA® REITs and CWI, which had aggregate real estate assets of $9.5 billion and total assets of $10.0 billion as of March 31, 2012.

  • As of March 31, 2012, the occupancy rate of W. P. Carey's 12 million square foot owned portfolio was approximately 93%. In addition, for the 107 million square feet owned by the CPA® REITs, the average occupancy rate was approximately 98% at that date.

DISTRIBUTIONS

  • The Board of Directors raised the quarterly cash distribution to $0.565 per share for the first quarter of 2012. The distribution -- our 44th consecutive quarterly increase -- was paid on April 16, 2012 to shareholders of record as of March 31, 2012. Together with its CPA® programs, W. P. Carey has paid more than $4 billion in distributions to its investors.

Trevor Bond, President and Chief Executive Officer, noted, " Our first quarter results demonstrate the continued solidity of our business model: adjusted cash flow from operating activities increased from 2011's first quarter, despite lower investment volume relative to the same period from last year. Variation in investment activity between quarters is not unusual in our sector, and we continue to see attractive opportunities. While the current vagaries of the global financial markets remain a concern, our investments are diversified and long-term in nature, and we believe that adhering to established, conservative investment criteria will enable us to continue providing steady income and preservation of capital to our shareholders and investors in our CPA® funds.

Non-GAAP Financial Disclosure

EBITDA as disclosed represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We believe that EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure to investors and analysts for assessing the performance of our business segments, although it does not represent net income that is computed in accordance with GAAP, because it removes the impact of our capital structure and asset base from our operating results and because it is helpful when comparing our operating performance to that of companies in our industry without regard to such items, which can vary substantially from company to company. Accordingly, EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our financial performance. EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Therefore, we use EBITDA as one measure of our operating performance when we formulate corporate goals, evaluate the effectiveness of our strategies, and determine executive compensation.

(a) The SEC Staff has recently advised that they take no position on the inclusion or exclusion of impairment write-downs in arriving at Funds From Operations ("FFO"). Since 2003, the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") has taken the position that the exclusion of impairment charges is consistent with its definition of FFO. Accordingly, we have revised our computation of FFO to exclude impairment charges, if any, in arriving at FFO for all periods presented.

FFO is a non-GAAP measure defined by NAREIT. NAREIT defines FFO as net income or loss (as computed in accordance with GAAP) excluding: depreciation and amortization expense from real estate assets, impairment charges on real estate, gains or losses from sales of depreciated real estate assets and extraordinary items; however, FFO related to assets held for sale, sold or otherwise transferred and included in the results of discontinued operations are included. These adjustments also incorporate the pro rata share of unconsolidated subsidiaries. FFO is used by management, investors and analysts to facilitate meaningful comparisons of operating performance between periods and among our peers. Although NAREIT has published this definition of FFO, companies often modify this definition as they seek to provide financial measures that meaningfully reflect their distinctive operations.

We modify the NAREIT computation of FFO to include other adjustments to GAAP net income to adjust for certain non-cash charges such as amortization of intangibles, deferred income tax benefits and expenses, straight-line rents, stock compensation, gains or losses from extinguishment of debt and deconsolidation of subsidiaries and unrealized foreign currency exchange gains and losses. We refer to our modified definition of FFO as AFFO. We exclude these items from GAAP net income as they are not the primary drivers in our decision making process. Our assessment of our operations is focused on long-term sustainability and not on such non-cash items, which may cause short-term fluctuations in net income but have no impact on cash flows, and we therefore use AFFO as one measure of our operating performance when we formulate corporate goals, evaluate the effectiveness of our strategies, and determine executive compensation.

We believe that AFFO is a useful supplemental measure for investors to consider because it will help them to better assess the sustainability of our operating performance without the potentially distorting impact of these short-term fluctuations. However, there are limits on the usefulness of AFFO to investors. For example, impairment charges and unrealized foreign currency losses that we exclude may become actual realized losses upon the ultimate disposition of the properties in the form of lower cash proceeds or other considerations.

(a) We take a substantial portion of our asset management revenue in shares of the CPA® REIT funds. To the extent we receive distributions in excess of the equity income that we recognize, we include such amounts in our evaluation of cash flow from core operations.

(b) Represents noncontrolling interests' share of distributions made by ventures that we consolidate in our financial statements.

(c) Timing differences arising from the payment of certain liabilities and the receipt of certain receivables in a period other than that in which the item is recognized in determining net income may distort the actual cash flow that our core operations generate. We adjust our GAAP cash flow from operating activities to record such amounts in the period in which the item was actually recognized.

Non-GAAP Financial Disclosure

Adjusted cash flow from operating activities refers to our cash provided by operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP, adjusted primarily to reflect timing differences between the period an expense is incurred and paid, to add cash distributions that we receive from our investments in unconsolidated real estate joint ventures in excess of our equity investment in the joint ventures, and to subtract cash distributions that we make to our noncontrolling partners in real estate joint ventures that we consolidate. We hold a number of interests in real estate joint ventures, and we believe that adjusting our GAAP cash provided by operating activities to reflect these actual cash receipts and cash payments may give investors a more accurate picture of our actual cash flow than GAAP cash provided by operating activities alone and that it is a useful supplemental measure for investors to consider. We also believe that adjusted cash flow from operating activities is a useful supplemental measure for assessing the cash flow generated from our core operations, and we use this measure when evaluating distributions to shareholders and as one measure of our operating performance when we determine executive compensation. Adjusted cash flow from operating activities should not be considered as an alternative to cash provided by operating activities computed on a GAAP basis as a measure of our liquidity. Adjusted cash flow from operating activities may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
