Published
  • GAAP Net Earnings of $0.20 in 2023 and Projected 2024 of $0.09-$0.15
  • Full-Year 2023 Same-Property NOI Growth of 5.8% at the High End of Guidance

RYE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Acadia Realty Trust (NYSE: AKR) (“Acadia” or the “Company”) today reported operating results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2023. For the quarter ended December 31, 2023, net loss per share was $0.02 and for the year ended December 31, 2023, net earnings per share was $0.20. All per share amounts are on a fully-diluted basis, where applicable. Acadia operates a high-quality core real estate portfolio ("Core" or "Core Portfolio"), in the nation's most dynamic retail corridors, along with strategic capital platforms including a fund business ("Funds") that targets opportunistic and value-add investments.

Kenneth F. Bernstein, President and CEO of Acadia Realty Trust, commented:

“This is an exciting time for Acadia. Our portfolio has demonstrated consistent strength with same-property NOI growth averaging 6.5% for the past eleven quarters driven by the rebound and outperformance in our Street assets. We continue to see strong tenant demand for our spaces with plenty of upside remaining within our Street Portfolio. In January 2024, we completed an equity raise that positions our balance sheet for external growth. We are actively pursuing accretive investment opportunities within our Core and strategic capital platforms. Additionally, the real estate markets are becoming more amenable to capital recycling and our team is focused on monetizing select existing properties which will serve the dual goals of providing capital for new investments and upgrading the portfolio with higher growth assets.”

FOURTH QUARTER, FULL YEAR 2023 AND RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Fourth Quarter NAREIT FFO per share of $0.26 and FFO Before Special Items per share of $0.28
  • Same-property NOI growth was 5.8% for the full year and 4.2% for the fourth quarter with growth in excess of 10% in the Street Portfolio during the quarter
  • New Core Cash rent spreads of 44% for the full year and 25% for the fourth quarter (driven by a strategic recapture and re-lease of a space in Soho, New York)
  • Core Signed Not Open ("SNO") Pipeline (excluding redevelopment) was $7.0 million of annual base rents at December 31, 2023, representing about 5% of in-place rents
    • $3.0 million of rents commenced during the quarter, representing about 2% of in-place rents
  • Strong balance sheet with no significant Core debt maturities until 2026
  • 2024 Guidance, projected FFO Before Special Items of $1.28 at the mid-point, representing approximately 5% year over year growth (excluding the non-cash gain of $0.08 from 2023) driven by projected same-property NOI growth of 5-6%

    • 43.9% on new leases and

ACADIA REALTY TRUST AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Financial Highlights:

  1. For additional information and analysis concerning the Company’s balance sheet and results of operations, reference is made to the Company’s quarterly supplemental disclosures for the relevant periods furnished on the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K, which is available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov and on the Company’s website at www.acadiarealty.com.
  2. Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common shares of the Company were exercised or converted into common shares. The effect of the conversion of units of limited partnership interest (“OP Units”) in Acadia Realty Limited Partnership, the operating partnership of the Company (the “Operating Partnership”), is not reflected in the above table; OP Units are exchangeable into common shares on a one-for-one basis. The income allocable to such OP units is allocated on the same basis and reflected as noncontrolling interests in the consolidated financial statements. As such, the assumed conversion of these OP Units would have no net impact on the determination of diluted earnings per share.
  3. The Company considers funds from operations (“FFO”) as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) and net property operating income (“NOI”) to be appropriate supplemental disclosures of operating performance for an equity REIT due to their widespread acceptance and use within the REIT and analyst communities. In addition, the Company believes that given the atypical nature of certain unusual items (as further described below), “FFO Before Special Items” is also an appropriate supplemental disclosure of operating performance. FFO, FFO Before Special Items and NOI are presented to assist investors in analyzing the performance of the Company. The Company believes they are helpful as they exclude various items included in net income (loss) that are not indicative of operating performance, such as (i) gains (losses) from sales of real estate properties; (ii) depreciation and amortization and (iii) impairment of real estate properties. In addition, NOI excludes interest expense and FFO Before Special Items excludes certain unusual items (as further described below). The Company’s method of calculating FFO, FFO Before Special Items and NOI may be different from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs. Neither FFO nor FFO Before Special Items represent cash generated from operations as defined by generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), or are indicative of cash available to fund all cash needs, including distributions. Such measures should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) for the purpose of evaluating the Company’s performance or to cash flows as a measure of liquidity.
    1. Consistent with the NAREIT definition, the Company defines FFO as net income (computed in accordance with GAAP) excluding:
      1. gains (losses) from sales of real estate properties;
      2. depreciation and amortization;
      3. impairment of real estate properties;
      4. gains and losses from change in control; and
      5. after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.
    2. Also consistent with NAREIT’s definition of FFO, the Company has elected to include: the impact of the unrealized holding gains (losses) incidental to its main business, including those related to its RCP investments such as Albertsons in FFO.
    3. FFO Before Special Items begins with the NAREIT definition of FFO and adjusts FFO (or as an adjustment to the numerator within its earnings per share calculations) to take into account FFO without regard to certain unusual items including:
      1. charges, income and gains that management believes are not comparable and indicative of the results of the Company’s operating real estate portfolio;
      2. the impact of the unrealized holding gains (losses) incidental to its main business, including those related to its Retailer Controlled Property Venture ("RCP") investments such as Albertsons; and
      3. any realized income or gains from the Company’s investment in Albertsons.
  4. The Company defines Special Items to include (i) unrealized holding losses or gains (net of noncontrolling interest share) on investments and (ii) transaction and other costs that do not occur in the ordinary course of our underwriting and investing business.
  5. The Company realized investment gains of $4.6 million on 200,000 Albertsons' shares for the year ended December 31, 2023. The total realized gains and promotes in 2023 were approximately $16 million, or $0.16 per share, inclusive of the $11.3 million from a special dividend on the Albertson's shares (which was included in both NAREIT FFO and FFO Before Special Items).
  6. Results for the year ended December 31, 2023 included a non-recurring gain of $7.8 million, or $0.08 per share from the termination of the Bed Bath and Beyond ("BBBY") below-market lease at 555 9th Street in San Francisco.
  7. The pro-rata share of NOI is based upon the Operating Partnership’s stated ownership percentages in each venture or Fund’s operating agreement and does not include the Operating Partnership's share of NOI from unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures within the Funds.
