Robust and Diversified Leasing Progress
Stable Operating Metrics
Net Operating Income Performance
Redevelopment and Department Store Progress
During the third quarter, the Company proactively retired $29.1M of outstanding principal on the Senior Notes due 2024 and recorded a $1.2M gain on the debt extinguishment.
In addition, the Company has demonstrated continued ability to access new strategic capital in 2019 including:
Louis Conforti, CEO and Director, Commentary
“Here’s the bullet point summary for the third quarter:
“The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines alternative music as ‘produced by performers who are outside the musical mainstream...typically regarded as more eclectic or original than popular music…often distributed by independent record labels’. There exists a distinct analogy between this musical genre and Washington Prime Group. In fact, we have strived to transform our assets from their previous 19791 aesthetic via creativity and originality. Instead of walking around Numb2 akin to a Zombie3, my colleagues have laced up their Pumped Up Kicks4, deciding to Tighten Up5 and deal with the challenges facing our sector. It hasn’t been easy and we have the Scar Tissue6 to prove it.
“Starting with a department store update, we have now resolved 17, or 74%, of the 23 vacant department stores within the Company’s portfolio and expect to announce several others within short order. While pundits were expecting a [more] Bitter [than] Sweet Symphony7, we were able to provide solutions ahead of schedule and attract a wide array of tenants which markedly diversify current rosters. I’ll let you decide what’s better for our assets…FieldhouseUSA, HomeGoods, PetSmart, Round1, ALDI, The RoomPlace, T.J. Maxx…just to name a few…or a lackluster Sears or Bon-Ton store. Unless you’re the Mayor of Simpletown8, it’s a pretty easy decision. Combine those names with some local and regional flavor as well as common area activations and you have a party!
“Let’s now turn to leasing, which As You Oughta Know9 is our most important and Epic10 task. Our leasing professionals continue to perform with the fortitude of a Seven Nation Army11 and as a result exhibited a robust 13% YOY increase totaling 3.2M SF…the number of lease transactions for the same period increased 9%. Of the aforementioned 3.2M SF, 56% of new leasing volume was attributable to lifestyle tenancy which includes food, beverage, entertainment, home furnishings, fitness and professional services. I can’t resist…we continue to give our guests plenty of reasons to Come Out and Play12 as well as eat, drink and buy a loveseat or two. In addition, the Company continues to incent its leasing and property management professionals in order to further diversify tenancy as illustrated by 143 leases qualifying under various incentive programs during the first nine months of 2019.
“While Washington Prime Group will always love our tenants with stores that Smell like Teen Spirit13 and we certainly don’t want to start a Teenage Riot14, isn’t it about time we catered to a more diverse demographic constituency? Listen, Mark and I like to rock the latest crop top as much as anybody’s teenage Daughter15 ; however, when we’re meeting with an institutional investor, an exposed midriff is just plain disrespectful. All of this talk about baring one’s midsection makes me think about Forever 21. We currently have 16 locations within our portfolio. As of now, it looks like we’ll only lose between two to three, of which one was slated to be relocated, if even feasible, as the result of redevelopment. Turning to Motherhood Maternity…just thought I’d mention they account for only 20 basis points of annualized rents, of which ~50% of our exposure is situated within Polaris Fashion Place, Town Center Crossing and Scottsdale Quarter.
“Continuing with a few other operating metrics, Tier One sales PSF increased 4.6% to $413 during the trailing 12 months ended September 30, 2019 and occupancy cost decreased 90 basis points to 11.2%. Remember, occupancy cost is the litmus test of tenant profitability and we rank among the best within our sector. Also, leasing spreads for new Tier One and Open Air transactions increased 1.6% during the trailing 12 months ended September 30, 2019. While combined Tier One and Open Air occupancy decreased 110 basis points to 92.9%, every single square foot of it was attributable to the bankruptcies of Charlotte Russe, Gymboree, and Payless ShoeSource. Now, I’d be uncomfortable as a Blister in the Sun16 save for the fact we’re filling the space with, plain and simple, better tenants with more interesting goods and services. In fact, we estimate Tier One occupancy will sequentially improve approximately 150 to 200 basis points by the end of the fourth quarter 2019.
“It’s now time to discuss comparable net operating income. Tier One decreased 8.8% and Open Air increased 2.6% which resulted in a combined decrease of 5.5% equating to $6.4M during the third quarter 2019. Before you reach for your Lithium17, it’s important to deconstruct this data point in order to better understand its various components. Take it from The Strokes, one of my favorite bands of all times, It’s [not] Hard to Explain18. The entire decrease can best be described as follows: a $4.3M negative impact as a result of cotenancy and rental income loss from 2018 anchor bankruptcies (Bon-Ton Stores, Sears and Toys ‘R’ Us), and the remaining $2.1M was attributable to 2019 bankruptcies (Charlotte Russe, Gymboree and Payless ShoeSource).
“So, backing out the aforementioned cotenancy and rental income impact would result in flat comparable net operating income growth. Think about it, if we didn’t have visibility as it relates to resolving cotenancy and rental income loss e.g. leasing space, we sure as heck wouldn’t forecast positive 2020 comparable net operating growth of at least 2.0% for Tier One and Open Air. The bottom line is we are working our behinds off to lease both inline and department store space and have satisfied the vast majority of this detrimental impact. In other words, our leasing volume proves Michael Stipes is sadly mistaken if he believes It’s the End of the World19. Just remember, You Get What You Give20 and my colleagues have given their all.
“Crappy companies are ubiquitous in every sector and one of Beck’s most popular songs sums them up in a word. According to Credit Risk Monitor, the ten largest corporate bankruptcies in 2018 exhibited total liabilities of $54.5B. Three of the ten were classified as retail (Sears, Claire’s Stores and Bon-Ton Stores) and their total liabilities amounted to 28.4% of the aggregate $54.5B. While I am absolutely not defending these ne’er do wells or any of their crappy counterparts, there exists a disproportionate amount of negativity with respect to our sector as compared to other industries.
“I think I know the reason…my mother. When Carson, Pirie & Scott (Bon-Ton Stores) shuttered their stores last year, my mother was an absolute Basket Case20 lamenting their demise as if a beloved relative had kicked the bucket (don’t even think about asking her opinion about the post merger name change of Marshall Field’s). In an admittedly feeble attempt to comfort her, I said it’s not really a big deal because she was one of only twelve remaining customers anyway, at which point she directed her vitriol toward me as if I was responsible for their demise. Here’s the moral of the story: Ask your mother if she has ever heard of First Energy Solutions, Westmoreland Coal Company, Rex Energy Corporation or any of the other names which accounted for the remaining 71.6%. As physical retail is the quintessential consumer facing industry, I guess I’ll just have to assume the role of martyr and bear the wrath of shopping mothers everywhere.
“I’m going to end my commentary with an interesting scenario analysis which provides yet another illustration of the silliness of our current share price. Remember last quarter when we provided a financial analysis which in effect solved for the applicable capitalization rate of Tier One assets by setting all other factors (remaining asset valuation) constant given current share price? The result was at the then current share price, Tier One assets, which comprise ~49% of 2019 budgeted NOI, trade at a ~29.0% capitalization rate.
“This time we’re going to take a look at retail or mixed use redevelopment potential and its incremental impact upon net asset valuation. I’ll provide a summary as illustrated below:
“The result of what we considered to be highly conservative assumption set resulted in $2.00 or more of value creation per share...just for these three assets. Now extrapolate with varying degrees and apply this methodology to Pearlridge Center, Southern Park Mall, Grand Central Mall, Polaris Fashion Place, Southgate Mall, The Mall at Johnson City...just to name a few.
“In closing, I’d like to thank my colleagues who have all become My Hero[s]22. Their collective efforts make me feel like I’m Mr. Brightside22.”

Third Quarter Financial Results
Net loss attributable to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2019 was $4.4 million, or ($0.02) per diluted share, compared to income of $0.5 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, a year ago. The YOY difference relates primarily to lost rental income from retail bankruptcies and related cotenancy, as well as higher interest expense. Results for the third quarter of 2019 include a gain on the extinguishment of debt of $38.9 million, and a gain on disposition of interests in properties of $9.8 million, which compares to $3.9 million of such gains during the same quarter a year ago. Other items contributing to the YOY change include a non-cash impairment loss of $28.9 million during the third quarter of 2019.
In addition, general and administrative expenses increased $3.1 million YOY, which was attributable to the impact of the new lease accounting standard which now prohibits the Company from capitalizing non-incremental internal leasing and legal efforts.
NAREIT Funds from Operations (FFO) for the third quarter of 2019 were $100.9 million, or $0.45 per diluted share. This compares to $82.1 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, during the same quarter a year ago. Results for the third quarter of 2019 include a gain on the extinguishment of debt of $38.9 million. When excluding that item, adjusted FFO (“AFFO”) for the third quarter of 2019 was $62.0 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, which compares to $0.37 per diluted share during the same quarter a year ago. The YOY decrease in AFFO relates primarily to lost rental income from retail bankruptcies and related cotenancy, as well as higher interest expense.
The Company announced in September 2017 the sale of multiple tranches of outparcels to Four Corners with a combined purchase price of approximately $70 million, of which the Company closed on $27.8 million of restaurant outparcels in 2018. In addition, the Company completed approximately $29.5 million of outparcel sales during the first nine months of 2019. The Company anticipates closing on most of the approximately $13.0 million of remaining outparcel sales from the 2017 transaction in the fourth quarter of 2019, subject to due diligence and closing conditions. The net proceeds from the outparcel disposition activities were generally used to fund ongoing redevelopment efforts and for general corporate purposes. In addition, the Company signed during the third quarter of 2019 a definitive agreement for the sale of 20 additional outparcels to Four Corners for a combined purchase price of approximately $38 million. This pricing reflects a mid-six percent capitalization rate on in-place net operating income. The Company anticipates closing on a majority of the 20 additional outparcels in 2020, subject to due diligence and closing conditions.
On September 16, 2019, the Company repaid the $47.6 million mortgage loan previously secured by four Open Air assets, which was scheduled to mature on October 16, 2019 at a fixed rate of 7.5%. Simultaneously, the Company closed on a new $117.0 million loan secured by the same four assets. The interest-only loan bears interest at a fixed rate of 3.67%. The new loan will mature on October 1, 2029. The Open Air assets are: Forest Plaza located in Rockford, Illinois; Lakeline Plaza, located in Cedar Park, Texas; Muncie Towne Plaza, located in Muncie, Indiana; and White Oaks Plaza, located in Springfield, Illinois.
On July 1, 2019, the $45.2 million mortgage loan secured by Towne West Square, located in Wichita, Kansas, was extinguished upon the property transition to the lender. The Company recognized a gain on debt extinguishment, net of default interest, of approximately $37.7 million related to the transition during the third quarter of 2019.
During the third quarter of 2019, the Company retired at a discount $29.1 million outstanding principal on the Senior Notes due 2024. The Company recognized a gain of approximately $1.2 million, net of $0.6M of bond discount and debt issuance costs, which is recorded in gain on extinguishment of debt.
The Company updates guidance for fiscal 2019 net loss attributable to common shareholders in the range of $(0.18) to $(0.09) per diluted share, primarily to incorporate non-cash items which occurred during the third quarter of 2019. The Company reaffirms guidance for fiscal 2019 FFO, as adjusted, in a range of $1.16 to $1.24 per diluted share.
The following table provides the reconciliation for estimated net loss attributable to common shareholders per diluted share to estimated FFO per diluted share, as adjusted, for the year ending December 31, 2019:
|Estimated net loss attributable to common shareholders per diluted share||$(0.18||)||$(0.09||)|
|Real estate depreciation and amortization, including joint venture impact||1.40||1.39|
|Impairment loss, including gain on disposition of interests in properties, net||0.11||0.11|
|Estimated FFO per diluted share||$1.33||$1.41|
|Gain on debt extinguishment, net||(0.17||)||(0.17||)|
|Estimated FFO per diluted share, as adjusted||$1.16||$1.24|
The Company guidance now assumes that fiscal 2019 comparable NOI will decline 3.0% to 4.0% for Tier One and Open Air properties from the prior year. The Company also expects higher gains from outparcel sales and lower overhead costs from previous guidance while other key assumptions for 2019 remain unchanged. A summary of all key guidance assumptions can be found in the Supplemental Information report available on the investor relations section of the Company’s website.
The following table provides a reconciliation of estimated net loss attributable to common shareholders from GAAP financial statements to the Company’s NOI estimates for the year:

For the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company estimates net (loss) income attributable to common shareholders to be in the range of $(0.03) to $0.02 per diluted share and FFO to be in the range of $0.31 to $0.35 per diluted share.
A reconciliation of the range of estimated net loss per diluted share to estimated FFO per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2019 follows:
|Estimated net (loss) income attributable to common shareholders per diluted share||$(0.03||)||$0.02|

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes FFO and NOI, including same property NOI growth, which are financial performance measures not defined by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in this press release. FFO and comparable NOI growth are financial performance measures widely used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs. The Company believes that FFO provides investors with additional information regarding operating performance and a basis to compare the Company’s performance with that of other REITs.
The Company uses FFO in addition to net income to report operating results. We determine FFO based on the definition set forth by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) as net income computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding real estate related depreciation and amortization, excluding gains and losses from extraordinary items and cumulative effects of accounting changes, excluding gains and losses from the sales or disposals of previously depreciated retail operating properties, excluding impairment charges of depreciable real estate, plus the allocable portion of FFO of unconsolidated entities accounted for under the equity method of accounting based upon economic ownership interest.
NOI is used by industry analysts, investors and Company management to measure operating performance of the Company’s properties. NOI represents total property revenues less property operating and maintenance expenses. Accordingly, NOI excludes certain expenses included in the determination of net income such as corporate general and administrative expense and other indirect operating expenses, interest expense, impairment charges and depreciation and amortization expense. These items are excluded from NOI in order to provide results that are more closely related to a property’s results of operations. In addition, the Company’s computation of same property NOI excludes termination income and income from outparcel sales. The Company also adjusts for other miscellaneous items in order to enhance the comparability of results from one period to another. Certain items, such as interest expense, while included in FFO and net income, do not affect the operating performance of a real estate asset and are often incurred at the corporate level as opposed to the property level. As a result, management uses only those income and expense items that are incurred at the property level to evaluate a property’s performance. Real estate asset related depreciation and amortization, as well as impairment charges, are excluded from NOI for the same reasons that they are excluded from FFO pursuant to NAREIT’s definition.
Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as they do not include all items of income and expense that affect operations, and accordingly, should always be considered as supplemental to financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. Investors should understand that the Company’s computation of these non-GAAP measures might not be comparable to similar measures reported by other REITs and that these non-GAAP measures do not represent cash flow from operations as defined by GAAP, should not be considered as alternatives to net income determined in accordance with GAAP as a measure of operating performance and are not alternatives to cash flows as a measure of liquidity. Investors are cautioned that items excluded from these measures are significant components in understanding and addressing financial performance. Reconciliations of these measures are included in the press release.
