We achieved Core FFO growth of 31.4% for the fourth quarter 2019 and 34.3% for the full year 2019, driven by, among other factors: a) robust tenant demand enabling fourth quarter GAAP and cash re-leasing spreads of 42.0% and 27.1%, respectively, b) completion of 876,131 square feet of repositioning projects generating an aggregate 8.1% stabilized unlevered yield on cost, and c) the completion of 34 investments for an aggregate purchase price of $970.7 million, representing a 24.7% increase in portfolio square footage," stated Michael Frankel and Howard Schwimmer, Co-Chief Executive Officers of the Company. "We generated an increase in Core FFO per share of 10.3% and 9.8%, respectively, for the quarter and full year, while maintaining a fortress-like, low-leverage balance sheet that ended the year at a debt-to-enterprise value ratio of 12.3%.  Our sustained growth enabled us to increase our quarterly dividend by 16.2%, representing a total increase in our dividend of 79.2% since our 2013 initial public offering.  Looking forward, we couldn't be more excited at the quality of internal and external growth opportunities before us as we remain focused on creating value for shareholders by investing in and improving industrial property throughout infill Southern California's highly-sought-after industrial property markets."

Guidance

The Company is introducing its full year 2020 guidance as follows:

  • Net income attributable to common stockholders within a range of $0.37 to $0.39 per diluted share
  • Company share of Core FFO within a range of $1.30 to $1.32 per diluted share
  • Year-end Stabilized Same Property Portfolio occupancy within a range of 96.0% to 97.0%
  • Stabilized Same Property Portfolio NOI growth for the year within a range of 3.7% to 4.2%
  • General and administrative expenses within a range of $36.5 million to $37.0 million

The Core FFO guidance refers only to the Company's in-place portfolio as of February 11, 2020, and the pending acquisition of a portfolio of 11 properties (the "Pending Portfolio") that is expected to close no later than April 21, 2020 (for additional details, refer to the Company's Form 8-K that was filed with Securities and Exchange Commission on December 23, 2019). Our guidance does not include any assumptions for other acquisitions, dispositions or balance sheet activities that may or may not occur through the end of the year. A number of factors could impact the Company's ability to deliver results in line with its guidance, including, but not limited to, interest rates, the economy, the supply and demand of industrial real estate, failure to satisfy the closing conditions for the Pending Portfolio, the availability and terms of financing to the Company or to potential acquirers of real estate and the timing and yields for divestment and investment. There can be no assurance that the Company can achieve such results.

On February 10, 2020, the Company's Board of Directors declared a dividend in the amount of $0.215 per share for the first quarter of 2020, payable in cash on April 15, 2020, to common stockholders and common unit holders of record as of March 31, 2020.  The new divided rate represents a 16.2% increase from the prior rate of $0.185 per share.

Definitions / Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

Funds from Operations (FFO): We calculate FFO in accordance with the standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"). FFO represents net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable operating property, impairment losses, real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs) and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Management uses FFO as a supplemental performance measure because, in excluding real estate related depreciation and amortization, gains and losses from property dispositions, other than temporary impairments of unconsolidated real estate entities, and impairment on our investment in real estate, it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, captures trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs. We also believe that, as a widely recognized measure of performance used by other REITs, FFO may be used by investors as a basis to compare our operating performance with that of other REITs. However, because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization and captures neither the changes in the value of our properties that result from use or market conditions nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties, all of which have real economic effects and could materially impact our results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of our performance is limited. Other equity REITs may not calculate or interpret FFO in accordance with the NAREIT definition as we do, and, accordingly, our FFO may not be comparable to such other REITs' FFO. FFO should not be used as a measure of our liquidity and is not indicative of funds available for our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends.  FFO should be considered only as a supplement to net income computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of our performance. A reconciliation of net income, the nearest GAAP equivalent, to FFO is set forth below.

Core Funds from Operations (Core FFO): We calculate Core FFO by adjusting FFO to exclude the impact of certain items that we do not consider reflective of our core revenue or expense streams. These adjustments consist of acquisition expenses.  Management believes that Core FFO is a useful supplemental measure as it provides a more meaningful and consistent comparison of operating performance and allows investors to more easily compare the Company's operating results.  Because certain of these adjustments have a real economic impact on our financial condition and results from operations, the utility of Core FFO as a measure of our performance is limited. Other REITs may not calculate Core FFO in a consistent manner.  Accordingly, our Core FFO may not be comparable to other REITs' Core FFO. Core FFO should be considered only as a supplement to net income computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of our performance.  A reconciliation of FFO to Core FFO is set forth below.

Reconciliation of Net Income Attributable to Common Stockholders per Diluted Share Guidance to Company share of Core FFO per Diluted Share Guidance:  The following is a reconciliation of the Company's 2020 guidance range of net income attributable to common stockholders per diluted share, the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measure, to Company share of Core FFO per diluted share.

Net Operating Income (NOI): NOI is a non-GAAP measure, which includes the revenue and expense directly attributable to our real estate properties. NOI is calculated as rental income from real estate operations less property expenses (before interest expense, depreciation and amortization). We use NOI as a supplemental performance measure because, in excluding real estate depreciation and amortization expense and gains (or losses) from property dispositions, it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, captures trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs. We also believe that NOI will be useful to investors as a basis to compare our operating performance with that of other REITs. However, because NOI excludes depreciation and amortization expense and captures neither the changes in the value of our properties that result from use or market conditions, nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties (all of which have a real economic effect and could materially impact our results from operations), the utility of NOI as a measure of our performance is limited. Other equity REITs may not calculate NOI in a similar manner and, accordingly, our NOI may not be comparable to such other REITs' NOI. Accordingly, NOI should be considered only as a supplement to net income as a measure of our performance. NOI should not be used as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs.

NOI should not be used as a substitute for cash flow from operating activities in accordance with GAAP. We use NOI to help evaluate the performance of the Company as a whole, as well as the performance of our Same Property Portfolio and Stabilized Same Property Portfolio. A calculation of NOI for our Same Property Portfolio, as well as a reconciliation of net income to NOI for our Same Property Portfolio and Stabilized Same Property Portfolio, is set forth below.

Cash NOI: Cash NOI is a non-GAAP measure, which we calculate by adding or subtracting from NOI i) fair value lease revenue and ii) straight-line rent adjustments. We use Cash NOI, together with NOI, as a supplemental performance measure. Cash NOI should not be used as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs. Cash NOI should not be used as a substitute for cash flow from operating activities computed in accordance with GAAP. We use Cash NOI to help evaluate the performance of the Company as a whole, as well as the performance of our Same Property Portfolio. A calculation of Cash NOI for our Same Property Portfolio, as well as a reconciliation of net income to Cash NOI for our Same Property Portfolio and Stabilized Same Property Portfolio, is set forth below.

Same Property Portfolio: Our Same Property Portfolio is a subset of our consolidated portfolio and includes properties that were wholly-owned by us as of January 1, 2018, and still owned by us as of December 31, 2019. Therefore, we excluded from our Same Property Portfolio any properties that were acquired or sold during the period from January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2019. The Company's computation of same property performance may not be comparable to other REITs.

Stabilized Same Property Portfolio: Our Stabilized Same Property Portfolio represents the properties included in our Same Property Portfolio, adjusted to exclude the properties listed in the table below that were under repositioning/lease-up during comparable years.

Stabilized Same Property Portfolio occupancy/leasing statistics excludes vacant/unleased repositioning space at each of these properties as of the end of each reporting period. Stabilized Same Property Portfolio NOI excludes the NOI for the entire property for all comparable periods.

Our 2019 Stabilized Same Property Portfolio excludes the following Same Property Portfolio properties that were in various stages of repositioning or lease-up during 2018 and 2019:

14748-14750 Nelson Avenue


301-445 Figueroa Street

15401 Figueroa Street


3233 Mission Oaks Boulevard

1601 Alton Parkway


7110 E. Rosecrans Avenue

2700-2722 Fairview Street


9615 Norwalk Boulevard

28903 Avenue Paine



As of December 31, 2019, the difference between our 2019 Same Property Portfolio and our 2019 Stabilized Same Property Portfolio is 37,417 rentable square feet of space at one of our properties that was classified as repositioning or lease-up.

As of December 31, 2018, the difference between our 2019 Same Property Portfolio and our 2019 Stabilized Same Property Portfolio is space aggregating 247,615 rentable square feet at five of our properties that were in various stages of repositioning or lease-up.

Our 2020 Stabilized Same Property Portfolio is a subset of our consolidated portfolio and includes properties that were wholly owned by us for the period from January 1, 2019 through February 11, 2020, and that were stabilized as of January 1, 2019.  Therefore, our 2020 Stabilized Same Property Portfolio excludes the properties listed below that were or will be classified as repositioning (current and future) or lease-up during 2019 and 2020.  As of January 1, 2020, our 2020 Stabilized Same Property Portfolio consists of 160 properties aggregating 19,791,344 rentable square feet.

Properties and Space Under Repositioning: Typically defined as properties or units where a significant amount of space is held vacant in order to implement capital improvements that improve the functionality (not including basic refurbishments, i.e., paint and carpet), cash flow and value of that space.  We define a significant amount of space at a property as the lower of (i) 35,000 square feet of space or (ii) 50% of a property's square footage.  Typically, we would include properties or space where the repositioning and lease-up time frame is estimated to be greater than six months.  A repositioning is considered complete once the investment is fully or nearly fully deployed and the property is marketable for leasing. We consider a repositioning property to be stabilized at the earlier of the following: (i) upon reaching 90% occupancy or (ii) one year from the date of completion of repositioning construction work.  We look to update this definition on an annual basis based on the growth and size of the Company's consolidated portfolio.
