JERICHO, NY, April 30, 2019

— Getty Realty Corp. (NYSE: GTY) (“Getty” or the “Company”) announced today its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

Highlights For The First Quarter

 

Net earnings of $0.26 per share

 

Funds From Operations (FFO) of $0.43 per share

 

Adjusted Funds From Operations (AFFO) of $0.42 per share

 

Completed one redevelopment project

 

Re-Affirms 2019 Outlook

Christopher J. Constant, Getty’s President & Chief Executive Officer commented, “In the first quarter, we produced solid revenue growth reflecting the additional properties we added last year. We remain focused on growing our national portfolio of convenience stores and gasoline stations in markets that have high barriers to entry in established metropolitan areas, along with targeted high growth markets. We maintain a well occupied portfolio which generates stable growth, while continuing to analyze our growing acquisition and redevelopment pipeline of opportunities that would be accretive to earnings. With a strong balance sheet and stable cashflows, we will continue to work to deliver additional value to our shareholders.”

Net Earnings

The Company reported net earnings for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, of $10.9 million, or $0.26 per share, as compared to net earnings of $10.0 million, or $0.25 per share, for the same period in 2018.

Funds From Operations (FFO) and Adjusted Funds From Operations (AFFO)

FFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, was $17.8 million, or $0.43 per share, as compared to $17.8 million, or $0.44 per share, for the same period in 2018.

AFFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, was $17.5 million, or $0.42 per share, as compared to $16.8 million, or $0.42 per share, for the same period in 2018.

All per share amounts in this press release are presented on a fully diluted per common share basis, unless stated otherwise. FFO and AFFO are defined and reconciled to net earnings in the financial tables at the end of this release. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

Results of Operations

Revenues from rental properties increased 6.1%, or $1.9 million, to $33.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, as compared to $31.4 million for the same period in 2018. The growth in revenues from rental properties for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, was primarily due to revenue from properties acquired by the Company in 2018, along with contractual increases. Tenant reimbursements included in revenues from rental properties, which consist of real estate taxes and other municipal charges paid by the Company which were reimbursable by the tenants pursuant to the terms of triple-net lease agreements, were $3.7 million and $3.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Property costs were $5.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, as compared to $4.9 million for the same period in 2018. The increase was principally due to higher reimbursable real estate taxes and professional fees related to property redevelopments.


Environmental expenses were $0.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, as compared to $1.0 million for the same period in 2018. The decrease was principally due to lower environmental legal and professional fees. Environmental expenses vary from period to period and, accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed on the magnitude or the direction of change in reported environmental expenses for one period, as compared to prior periods.

General and administrative expense was $4.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, as compared to $3.6 million for the same period in 2018. The increase in general and administrative expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, was principally due to $0.3 million of non-recurring employee related expenses attributable to retirement costs.

Impairment charges were $0.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, as compared to $2.8 million for the same period in 2018. Impairment charges for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, were primarily attributable to the effect of adding asset retirement costs due to changes in estimates associated with the Company’s environmental liabilities, reductions in estimated undiscounted cash flows expected to be received during the assumed holding period for certain of its properties, and reductions in estimated sales prices from third-party offers based on signed contracts, letters of intent or indicative bids for certain of its properties.

Portfolio Activities

There were no property acquisitions or dispositions during the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and 2018.

Redevelopment Activities

During the quarter ended March 31, 2019, rent commenced on one redevelopment project and the Company spent $0.2 million (net of write-offs) of construction-in-progress costs.

As of March 31, 2019, the Company was actively redeveloping seven of its properties either as a new convenience and gasoline use or for alternative single-tenant net lease retail uses. In addition, as of March 31, 2019, the Company had signed leases on five properties, that are currently part of its net lease portfolio, which will be recaptured and transferred to redevelopment when the appropriate entitlements, permits and approvals have been secured.

Balance Sheet

In connection with the adoption of the new lease accounting standard, on January 1, 2019, the Company recognized operating lease right-of-use assets of $25.6 million (net of deferred rent expense) and operating lease liabilities of $26.1 million.

As of March 31, 2019, the Company had $415.0 million of outstanding indebtedness with a weighted average interest rate of 5.2%. The Company’s indebtedness consisted of $90.0 million in aggregate borrowings under its credit agreement and an aggregate principal amount of $325.0 million of senior unsecured notes. Total cash and cash equivalents were $19.1 million as of March 31, 2019.

2019 Guidance

The Company reaffirms its 2019 AFFO guidance at a range of $1.71 to $1.75 per diluted share. The Company’s guidance does not assume any potential future acquisitions or capital markets activities. The guidance is based on current plans and assumptions and is subject to risks and uncertainties more fully described in this press release and the Company’s periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to measurements defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), the Company also focuses on Funds From Operations (“FFO”) and Adjusted Funds From Operations (“AFFO”) to measure its performance. FFO and AFFO are generally considered by analysts and investors to be appropriate supplemental non-GAAP measures of the performance of REITs. FFO and AFFO are not in accordance with, or a substitute for, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, FFO and AFFO are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Neither FFO nor AFFO represent cash generated from operating activities calculated in accordance with GAAP and therefore these measures should not be considered an alternative for GAAP net earnings or as a measure of liquidity. These measures should only be used to evaluate the Company’s performance in conjunction with corresponding GAAP measures.

FFO is defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts as GAAP net earnings before depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, gains or losses on dispositions of real estate, impairment charges and cumulative effect of accounting change. The Company’s definition of AFFO is defined as FFO less (i) Revenue Recognition Adjustments (net of allowances), (ii) non-cash changes in environmental estimates, (iii) non-cash environmental accretion expense, (iv) environmental litigation accruals, (v) insurance reimbursements, (vi) legal settlements and judgments, (vii) acquisition costs expensed and (viii) other unusual items that are not reflective of the Company’s core operating performance. Other REITs may use definitions of FFO and/or AFFO that are different than the Company’s and, accordingly, may not be comparable.

FFO excludes various items such as depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, gains or losses on dispositions of real estate and impairment charges. In the Company’s case, however, GAAP net earnings and FFO typically include the impact of revenue recognition adjustments comprised of deferred rental revenue (straight-line rental revenue), the net amortization of above-market and below-market leases, adjustments recorded for recognition of rental income recognized from direct financing leases on revenues from rental properties and the amortization of deferred lease incentives, as offset by the impact of related collection reserves. Deferred rental revenue results primarily from fixed rental increases scheduled under certain leases with the Company’s tenants. In accordance with GAAP, the aggregate minimum rent due over the current term of these leases is recognized on a straight-line basis rather than when payment is contractually due. The present value of the difference between the fair market rent and the contractual rent for in-place leases at the time properties are acquired is amortized into revenue from rental properties over the remaining lives of the in-place leases. Income from direct financing leases is recognized over the lease terms using the effective interest method, which produces a constant periodic rate of return on the net investments in the leased properties. The amortization of deferred lease incentives represents the Company’s funding commitment in certain leases, which deferred expense is recognized on a straight-line basis as a reduction of rental revenue. GAAP net earnings and FFO include non-cash changes in environmental estimates and environmental accretion expense, which do not impact the Company’s recurring cash flow. GAAP net earnings and FFO also include environmental litigation accruals, insurance reimbursements, and legal settlements and judgments, which items are not indicative of the Company’s core operating performance. GAAP net earnings and FFO from time to time may also include acquisition costs expensed and other unusual items that are not reflective of the

 


Company’s core operating performance. Acquisition costs are expensed, generally in the period when properties are acquired and are not reflective of our core operating performance.

The Company pays particular attention to AFFO, as the Company believes it best represents its core operating performance. In the Company’s view, AFFO provides a more accurate depiction than FFO of its core operating performance. By providing AFFO, the Company believes that it is presenting useful information that assists analysts and investors to better assess its core operating performance. Further, the Company believes that AFFO is useful in comparing the sustainability of its core operating performance with the sustainability of the core operating performance of other real estate companies.
