MANAGEMENT COMMENTARY

“Supported by the strength of our investment volume year-to-date we are narrowing our full-year AFFO guidance to between $5.40 and $5.50 per diluted share by raising the lower end of the range,” said Jason Fox, Chief Executive Officer of W. P. Carey. “We also remain on track to close the proposed merger with CPA:17 around the end of the year in a transformational transaction that we believe will create immediate and enduring value for our stakeholders.”


QUARTERLY FINANCIAL RESULTS

Revenues

Total Company: Revenues excluding reimbursable costs (net revenues) for the 2018 second quarter totaled $189.9 million, down 6.3% from $202.7 million for the 2017 second quarter.

Owned Real Estate: Owned Real Estate net revenues for the 2018 second quarter were $168.2 million, substantially unchanged from $168.7 million for the 2017 second quarter, due primarily to lower operating property revenues resulting from the disposition of a hotel operating property in April 2018, substantially offset by higher lease revenues, which increased primarily as a result of a stronger euro relative to the U.S. dollar and rent escalations.

Investment Management: Investment Management net revenues for the 2018 second quarter were $21.7 million, down 36.2% from $34.0 million for the 2017 second quarter, due primarily to lower structuring revenues resulting from the fully-invested status of the Managed Programs (as defined below) and the Company’s strategic decision to exit non-traded retail fundraising during 2017.

Net Income Attributable to W. P. Carey

Net income attributable to W. P. Carey for the 2018 second quarter was $75.7 million, up 17.7% compared to $64.3 million for the 2017 second quarter, due primarily to a higher aggregate gain on sale of real estate.

Adjusted Funds from Operations (AFFO)

AFFO for the 2018 second quarter was $1.32 per diluted share, down 4.3% from $1.38 per diluted share for the 2017 second quarter, due primarily to lower structuring revenues within Investment Management, which more than offset higher lease revenues from the Company’s Owned Real Estate portfolio.

Note: Further information concerning AFFO, a non-GAAP supplemental performance metric, is presented in the accompanying tables and related notes.

Dividend

As previously announced, on June 14, 2018, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $1.02 per share, equivalent to an annualized dividend rate of $4.08 per share. The dividend was paid on July 16, 2018 to stockholders of record as of June 29, 2018.

AFFO GUIDANCE

For the 2018 full year, the Company has narrowed its AFFO guidance range to between $5.40 and $5.50 per diluted share by raising the lower end of the range from $5.30, based on the following key assumptions:

(i)
investments for the Company’s Owned Real Estate portfolio of between $700 million and $1 billion, raising the lower end of the range from $500 million;

(ii)
dispositions from the Company’s Owned Real Estate portfolio of between $300 million and $500 million, which is unchanged; and

(iii)
total general and administrative expenses of between $65 million and $70 million, which is unchanged.

Note: The Company does not provide guidance on net income. The Company only provides guidance on AFFO and does not provide a reconciliation of this forward-looking non-GAAP guidance to net income due to the inherent difficulty in quantifying certain items necessary to provide such reconciliation as a result of their unknown effect, timing and potential significance. Examples of such items include impairments of assets, gains and losses from sales of assets and depreciation and amortization from new acquisitions.


OWNED REAL ESTATE

Investments

During the 2018 second quarter, the Company completed investments totaling $289.2 million, consisting of an acquisition for $186.6 million, a property swap transaction in which a property with a fair value of $85.5 million was acquired in exchange for 23 properties transferred back to the same tenant and three completed capital investment projects at a total cost of $17.1 million. This investment activity brought total investment volume for the first half of 2018 to $395.4 million, including transaction-related costs and fees.

Subsequent to quarter end, the Company completed three additional acquisitions totaling $209.5 million, bringing total investment volume year-to-date to $604.9 million, including transaction-related costs and fees.

As of June 30, 2018, the Company had eight capital investment projects outstanding for an expected total investment of approximately $144.9 million, of which five projects totaling $70.1 million are currently expected to be completed during 2018.

Dispositions

During the 2018 second quarter, the Company disposed of 25 properties for total gross proceeds of $128.3 million, including the $85.5 million property swap transaction (described above) and the sale of a hotel operating property for $39.0 million, bringing total dispositions for the first half of 2018 to $163.8 million.

Composition

As of June 30, 2018, the Company’s Owned Real Estate portfolio consisted of 878 net lease properties, comprising 86.6 million square feet leased to 208 tenants, and one hotel operating property. As of that date, the weighted-average lease term of the net lease portfolio was 10.0 years and the occupancy rate was 99.6%.

(b)
Amounts for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 are primarily comprised of costs incurred in connection with our proposed merger with CPA:17. Amounts for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 are primarily comprised of accruals for estimated one-time legal settlement expenses.

We earn investment management revenue from CWI 1 and CWI 2 in our role as their advisor. Pursuant to the terms of their subadvisory agreements, however, 20% of the fees we receive from CWI 1 and 25% of the fees we receive from CWI 2 are paid to their respective subadvisors. In connection with the acquisitions of multi-family properties on behalf of CPA:18 – Global, we entered into agreements with third-party advisors for the day-to-day management of the properties for which we pay 100% of asset management fees paid to us by CPA:18 – Global. Pursuant to the terms of the subadvisory agreement we had with Carey Credit Income Fund’s (CCIF) subadvisor (prior to our resignation as the advisor to CCIF in the third quarter of 2017), we paid a subadvisory fee equal to 50% of the asset management fees and organization and offering costs paid to us by CCIF.

W. P. Carey Inc. 6/30/2018 Earnings Release 8-K – 11


Non-GAAP Financial Disclosure

Due to certain unique operating characteristics of real estate companies, as discussed below, the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc., or NAREIT, an industry trade group, has promulgated a non-GAAP measure known as FFO, which we believe to be an appropriate supplemental measure, when used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP, to reflect the operating performance of a REIT. The use of FFO is recommended by the REIT industry as a supplemental non-GAAP measure. FFO is not equivalent to nor a substitute for net income or loss as determined under GAAP.

We define FFO, a non-GAAP measure, consistent with the standards established by the White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of NAREIT, as revised in February 2004. The White Paper defines FFO as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains or losses from sales of property, impairment charges on real estate and depreciation and amortization from real estate assets; and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and jointly owned investments. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and jointly owned investments are calculated to reflect FFO. Our FFO calculation complies with NAREIT’s policy described above.

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 real estate-related intangibles, deferred income tax benefits and expenses, straight-line rents, stock-based compensation, non-cash environmental accretion expense and amortization of deferred financing costs. 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. Additionally, we exclude non-core income and expenses such as certain lease termination income, gains or losses from extinguishment of debt, restructuring and related compensation expenses and merger and acquisition expenses. We also exclude realized and unrealized gains/losses on foreign exchange transactions (other than those realized on the settlement of foreign currency derivatives), which are not considered fundamental attributes of our business plan and do not affect our overall long-term operating performance. We refer to our modified definition of FFO as AFFO. We exclude these items from GAAP net income to arrive at AFFO as they are not the primary drivers in our decision-making process and excluding these items provides investors a view of our portfolio performance over time and makes it more comparable to other REITs which are currently not engaged in acquisitions, mergers and restructuring which are not part of our normal business operations. AFFO also reflects adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and jointly owned investments. We 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 as we believe 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. We use our FFO and AFFO measures as supplemental financial measures of operating performance. We do not use our FFO and AFFO measures as, nor should they be considered to be, alternatives to net income computed under GAAP or as alternatives to net cash provided by operating activities computed under GAAP or as indicators of our ability to fund our cash needs.
