  • Completion of previously announced joint venture transaction with Crestpoint Real Estate Investments Ltd. ("Crestpoint") to co-own an industrial-focused portfolio of 42 properties

"We delivered another strong quarter in Q2, both from an operational and financial standpoint.  Our results are reflecting, in large part, our steadily increasing presence in the robust industrial sector as well as meaningful operational and leasing synergies." said Jim Beckerleg, President and CEO, PROREIT. "We are proud to have completed our joint venture transaction with Crestpoint, which also reflects our industrial and operational strategies. The scale of this accretive transaction sets the stage for future growth and opportunities in Eastern Canada, and we look forward to leveraging the significant market leasing upside embedded in this strategic portfolio.

"Our second quarter results include a 4.7% increase in Same Property NOI* from our industrial portfolio compared to the same period last year. Our smaller retail portfolio also performed very well, with a 3.2% increase in Same Property NOI* compared to the same period last year which we believe reflects our focus on necessities-based properties with strong national anchors.

"We kept a sharp focus on maintaining our strong financial discipline during the second quarter, in line with our commitment to reduce our Debt to Gross Book Value* ratio to below 50% over the next few quarters.

"While remaining mindful of the current level of macro-economic uncertainty, inflationary pressures and the rising interest rate environment, we are managing our strategies with discipline. We believe we are advantageously positioned to achieve further performance and improvements, adding value creation for our stakeholders," Mr. Beckerleg concluded.

PROREIT owned 120 investment properties at June 30, 2022, compared to 107 properties at the same time last year. Total assets amounted to $1.04 billion at June 30, 2022, compared to $772.9 million as at June 30, 2021, an increase of $268.4 million, or 34.7%. PROREIT acquired 16 properties and sold three non-strategic properties during the twelve-month period ended June 30, 2022.

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2022:

  • Property revenue amounted to $23.7 million, an increase of $6.0 million, or 33.6%, compared to $17.8 million for the same prior year period, mainly driven by incremental revenues from net acquisition activity over the last twelve-month period.

  • Same Property NOI* reached $9.9 million, an increase of $0.1 million, or 0.8%, compared to the same prior year period. The increase was a result of increased occupancy in the industrial and retail asset classes, contractual rent increases and high rental rates on lease renewals in the industrial segment, partially offset by the decrease in office Same Property NOI* resulting from a one-time adjustment of $0.13 million related to a prior period in addition to the increase in vacancy in two of the eight office properties. Excluding the aforementioned $0.13 million impact, Same Property NOI* increased by 2.2% in Q2 2022 compared to the same prior year period.

  • Net operating income* amounted to $14.3 million, compared to $10.7 million in the same period in 2021, an increase of $3.5 million, or 33.0%, mainly driven by the impact of the net property acquisition activity over the last twelve-month period.

  • AFFO* totaled $7.9 million, an increase of $2.1 million, or 36.9%, compared to $5.7 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 – Basic* stood at 86.5% compared to 92.3% for the same prior year period. This improvement is mainly related to the impact of the net acquisition activity over the last twelve-month period, partially offset by maintenance capital expenditures, leasing costs, and general and administrative expenses resulting from the REIT's growth.

For the six-month period ended June 30, 2022:

  • Property revenue was $48.1 million. The increase of $12.9 million, or 36.7%, compared to the same period last year, is primarily due to incremental revenues from the net property acquisitions completed in the twelve-month period ended June 30, 2022.

  • Same Property NOI* was $19.7 million, an increase of $0.2 million, or 0.8%, compared to the same period last year. The increase was a result of increased occupancy in the retail asset class, contractual rent increases and high rental rates on lease renewals in the industrial segment, partially offset by the decrease in occupancy in the office sector.

  • Net operating income* was $28.4 million, an increase of $7.5 million, or 36.1%, compared to the same period last year. This increase results primarily from the favorable impact of the net property acquisitions in the twelve-month period ended June 30, 2022.

  • AFFO* totaled $15.7 million, an increase of $4.5 million, or 40.4%, compared to the same period last year, mainly driven by the impact of the net acquisition activity over the last twelve-month period.

  • AFFO Payout Ratio – Basic* stood at 86.8% compared to 87.9% for the same period last year. This improvement is mainly related to the impact of the net acquisition activity over the last twelve-month period, partially offset by maintenance capital expenditures, leasing costs, and general and administrative expenses resulting from the REIT's growth.

For the three months ended June 30, 2022, net income and comprehensive income amounted to $12.0 million, compared to $11.1 million during the same prior year period. The $0.9 million increase mainly relates to the $3.5 million favourable impact in net operating income, the $2.7 million favourable impact in the non-cash fair value adjustment on Class B LP Units and the $2.5 million favourable impact in the non-cash long-term incentive plan expense, partially offset by the $7.4 million change in the non-cash fair market value adjustment on investment properties for the second quarter of 2022, compared to the same prior year period. PROREIT updated independent external appraisals for nine properties during the second quarter of 2022, resulting in a fair market value gain of $0.8 million.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, net income and comprehensive income amounted to $58.5 million, compared to $12.7 million during the same prior year period. The $45.8 million increase mainly relates to the $34.0 million favourable impact in the non-cash fair value adjustment on investment properties, combined with the $7.5 million increase in net operating income for the six-month period ending June 30, 2022, compared to the same prior year period. During the first six months of 2022, PROREIT updated independent external appraisals for 14 properties, resulting in a fair market value gain of $41.1 million.

Solid Balance Sheet

PROREIT remains committed to steadily improving its balance sheet and liquidity position, including its Debt to Gross Book Value* ratio. PROREIT continues to maintain diversified debt maturities appropriate for the overall debt level of its portfolio.

Proceeds from an agreement to sell nine non-strategic retail properties located in Western Canada entered into subsequent to quarter-end (see Portfolio Transactions) will be used to repay approximately $14.1 million in related mortgages maturing in January 2023, leaving approximately $10 million in mortgage renewals maturing in the next twelve months.

Debt to Gross Book Value* was 51.2% at June 30, 2022, down from 58.2% at the same date last year. The weighted average interest rate on mortgage debt was 3.40% at June 30, 2022, compared to 3.50% at the same date last year.

At June 30, 2022, PROREIT had $28 million available on its credit facility.

Portfolio Transactions

On July 27, 2022, subsequent to quarter-end, PROREIT reached an agreement to sell a portfolio of nine non-core retail properties to a third party for gross proceeds of $18.8 million (excluding closing costs), totaling approximately 94,000 square feet of GLA located in Western Canada. Proceeds of the sale will be used to repay related mortgages, with the balance to be used to partially repay a term loan. The closing of the sale is scheduled for September 2022, subject to standard closing conditions.

On August 5, 2022, subsequent to quarter-end, PROREIT announced the closing of its previously announced accretive transaction with Crestpoint to jointly own an industrial-focused portfolio of 42 properties located in Atlantic Canada, whereby PROREIT and Crestpoint each acquired a 50% interest in 21 primarily industrial properties owned by a third party, for a total purchase price of $228.0 million (before closing costs). In conjunction with the acquisition, PROREIT sold a 50% interest in 21 of its currently owned properties to Crestpoint, having a total value of $227 million, for a total consideration to PROREIT of $113.5 million (before closing costs).

PROREIT's acquisition in the 50% interest in the 21 properties amounted to a cost to PROREIT of approximately $114.0 million (excluding closing costs), financed from the proceeds of a 50% interest in approximately $148.0 million in new fixed-rate mortgages. The $40 million balance was satisfied with cash on hand, including cash from the proceeds of the sale of a 50% interest in existing properties to Crestpoint.

PROREIT's sale of a 50% interest in 21 of its currently owned properties resulted in a consideration of approximately $49.0 million in cash received from Crestpoint (before closing costs), with Crestpoint also assuming a 50% interest in approximately $129.0 million of fixed-rate mortgages held by PROREIT.

About PROREIT

PROREIT (TSX:PRV.UN) is an unincorporated open-ended real estate investment trust established pursuant to a declaration of trust under the laws of the Province of Ontario. Founded in 2013, PROREIT owns a portfolio of high-quality commercial real estate properties in Canada, with a strong industrial focus in robust secondary markets.

Non-IFRS Measures

PROREIT's consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board. In addition to reported IFRS measures, industry practice is to evaluate real estate entities giving consideration, in part, to certain non-IFRS financial measures, non-IFRS ratios and other specified financial measures (collectively, "non-IFRS measures"). Without limitation, measures followed by the suffix "*" in this press release are non-IFRS measures.

As a complement to results provided in accordance with IFRS, PROREIT discloses and discusses in this press release  (i) certain non-IFRS financial measures, including: adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA"); annualized adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("Annualized 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 FFO per Unit; Diluted FFO per Unit; Debt to Gross Book Value; Debt Service Coverage Ratio; Interest Coverage Ratio; Debt to Annualized Adjusted EBTIDA 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 ended June 30, 2022, dated August 10, 2022 (the "Q2 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. Non-IFRS measures should not be considered as alternatives to net income, cash flows provided by operating activities, cash and cash equivalents, total assets, total equity, or comparable metrics determined in accordance with IFRS as indicators of PROREIT's performance, liquidity, cash flow, and profitability.
