ELS Reports First Quarter Results

Continued Stable Core Performance

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Equity LifeStyle Properties, Inc. (NYSE: ELS) (referred to herein as “we,” “us,” and “our”) today announced results for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. All per share results are reported on a fully-diluted basis unless otherwise noted.

Financial Results

Normalized Funds From Operations (“Normalized FFO”) increased $5.3 million, or $0.12 per common share, to $64.0 million, or $1.41 per common share, compared to $58.7 million, or $1.29 per common share, for the same period in 2012. Normalized FFO is calculated by eliminating certain non-operating items from Funds From Operations (“FFO”), such as the change in the fair value of a contingent asset. See page 21 of this release for a complete definition of Normalized FFO and FFO and page 6 for a reconciliation of Normalized FFO and FFO to net income, the nearest GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) measure.

FFO increased $6.3 million, or $0.14 per common share, to $65.0 million, or $1.43 per common share, compared to $58.7 million, or $1.29 per common share, for the same period in 2012.

Net income available to common stockholders totaled $35.0 million, or $0.84 per common share, compared to $12.4 million, or $0.30 per common share, for the same period in 2012.

Portfolio Performance

Property operating revenues, excluding deferrals, increased $8.2 million to $182.2 million, compared to $174.0 million for the same period in 2012. Income from property operations increased $4.3 million to $108.1 million compared to $103.8 million for the same period in 2012.

Core property operating revenues increased approximately 3.4 percent and income from Core property operations increased approximately 2.9 percent compared to the same period in 2012.

Balance Sheet

Our cash balance as of March 31, 2013 was approximately $81.8 million. Expanded disclosure on our balance sheet and debt statistics are included in the tables below. Interest coverage was approximately 3.4 times in the quarter.

Year to date, we have paid off the maturing mortgages on two manufactured home properties totaling approximately $12.9 million, with a weighted average interest rate of 6.0 percent per annum.

As of April 22, 2013, we own or have an interest in 383 quality properties in 32 states and British Columbia consisting of 142,682 sites. We are a self-administered, self-managed real estate investment trust (“REIT”) with headquarters in Chicago.

A live webcast of our conference call discussing these results will be available via our website in the Investor Information section at www.equitylifestyle.com at 10:00 a.m. Central Time on April 23, 2013.

  • our ability to retain and attract customers renewing, upgrading and entering right-to-use contracts;
  • our assumptions about rental and home sales markets;
  • our assumptions and guidance concerning 2013 estimated net income, FFO and Normalized FFO;
  • our ability to manage counterparty risk;
  • in the age-qualified properties, home sales results could be impacted by the ability of potential homebuyers to sell their existing residences as well as by financial, credit and capital markets volatility;
  • results from home sales and occupancy will continue to be impacted by local economic conditions, lack of affordable manufactured home financing and competition from alternative housing options including site-built single-family housing;
  • impact of government intervention to stabilize site-built single family housing and not manufactured housing;
  • effective integration of recent acquisitions and our estimates regarding the future performance of recent acquisitions;
  • unanticipated costs or unforeseen liabilities associated with recent acquisitions;
  • ability to obtain financing or refinance existing debt on favorable terms or at all;
  • the effect of interest rates;
  • the dilutive effects of issuing additional securities;
  • the effect of accounting for the entry of contracts with customers representing a right-to-use the Properties under the Codification Topic “Revenue Recognition;” and
  • other risks indicated from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

These forward-looking statements are based on management's present expectations and beliefs about future events. As with any projection or forecast, these statements are inherently susceptible to uncertainty and changes in circumstances. We are under no obligation to, and expressly disclaim any obligation to, update or alter our forward-looking statements whether as a result of such changes, new information, subsequent events or otherwise.

4. Represents the increase in fair value of the net asset described in the following sentences. We own both a fee interest and a ground leasehold interest in a 2,200 site property. The ground lease provides a purchase option to the lessee and a put option to the lessor. Either option may be exercised upon the death of the fee holder. We are the beneficiary of an escrow funded by the seller consisting of approximately 114,000 shares of our common stock. The escrow was established to protect us from future scheduled ground lease payment increases as well as scheduled increases in the option purchase price over time. The current fair value estimate of the escrow is $7.7 million. We will revalue the asset based on the market value of our common stock as of each reporting date and will recognize in earnings any increase or decrease in fair value of the escrow.
5. First quarter 2013 FFO adjusted to include a deduction for depreciation expense on rental homes would have been $63.2 million, or $1.39 per fully diluted share.

1.   We are required by GAAP to defer, over the estimated customer life, recognition of non-refundable upfront payments from the entry of right-to-use contracts and upgrade sales. The customer life is currently estimated to range from one to 31 years and is based upon our experience operating the membership platform since 2008 as well as historical attrition rates provided to us by Privileged Access. The amount shown represents the deferral of a substantial portion of current period upgrade sales, offset by amortization of prior period sales.
2. We are required by GAAP to defer recognition of commissions paid related to the entry of right-to-use contracts. The deferred commissions will be amortized using the same method as used for the related non-refundable upfront payments from the entry of right-to-use contracts and upgrade sales. The amount shown represents the deferral of a substantial portion of current period commissions on those contracts, offset by the amortization of prior period commissions.
3. See definition of FFO, Normalized FFO and FAD on page 21.
4. FFO adjusted to include a deduction for depreciation expense on rental homes for the quarters ended March 31, 2012 and 2013 would have been $63.2 million, or $1.39 per fully diluted share, and $57.3 million, or $1.26 per fully diluted share, respectively.

2011 Acquired Chattel Loan Assumptions

 

For the year ending December 31, 2013, other income and expenses guidance includes estimated interest income of approximately $4.6 million from notes receivable acquired from the seller and secured by manufactured homes in connection with the purchase of 75 acquisition properties during 2011. As of March 31, 2013, our carrying value of the notes receivable was approximately $23.8 million. Our initial carrying value was based on a third party valuation utilizing 2011 market transactions and is adjusted based on actual performance in the loan pool. Factors used in determining the initial carrying value included delinquency status, market interest rates and recovery assumptions. The following tables provide a summary of the notes receivable and certain assumptions about future performance, including interest income guidance for 2013. An increase in the estimate of expected cash flows would generally result in additional interest income to be recognized over the remaining life of the underlying pool of loans. A decrease in the estimate of expected cash flows could result in an impairment loss to the carrying value of the loans. There can be no assurance that the notes receivable will perform in accordance with these assumptions.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Funds from Operations (“FFO”) - is a non-GAAP financial measure. We believe FFO, as defined by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), is generally an appropriate measure of performance for an equity REIT. While FFO is a relevant and widely used measure of operating performance for equity REITs, it does not represent cash flow from operations or net income as defined by GAAP, and it should not be considered as an alternative to these indicators in evaluating liquidity or operating performance.

We define FFO as net income, computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains or actual or estimated losses from sales of properties, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures are calculated to reflect FFO on the same basis. We receive up-front non-refundable payments from the entry of right-to-use contracts. In accordance with GAAP, the upfront non-refundable payments and related commissions are deferred and amortized over the estimated customer life. Although the NAREIT definition of FFO does not address the treatment of nonrefundable right-to-use payments, we believe that it is appropriate to adjust for the impact of the deferral activity in our calculation of FFO. We believe that FFO is helpful to investors as one of several measures of the performance of an equity REIT. We further believe that by excluding the effect of depreciation, amortization and gains or actual or estimated losses from sales of real estate, all of which are based on historical costs and which may be of limited relevance in evaluating current performance, FFO can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and among other equity REITs. We believe that the adjustment to FFO for the net revenue deferral of upfront non-refundable payments and expense deferral of right-to-use contract commissions also facilitates the comparison to other equity REITs.

Normalized Funds from Operations (“Normalized FFO”) is a non-GAAP measure. We define Normalized FFO as FFO excluding the following non-operating income and expense items: a) the financial impact of contingent consideration; b) gains and losses from early debt extinguishment, including prepayment penalties; c) property acquisition and other transaction costs related to mergers and acquisitions; and d) other miscellaneous non-comparable items.

Funds available for distribution (“FAD”) is a non-GAAP financial measure. We define FAD as Normalized FFO less non-revenue producing capital expenditures.

Investors should review FFO, Normalized FFO and FAD, along with GAAP net income and cash flow from operating activities, investing activities and financing activities, when evaluating an equity REIT's operating performance. We compute FFO in accordance with our interpretation of standards established by NAREIT, which may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition differently than we do. Normalized FFO presented herein is not necessarily comparable to normalized FFO presented by other real estate companies due to the fact that not all real estate companies use the same methodology for computing this amount. FFO, Normalized FFO and FAD do not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, nor do they represent cash available to pay distributions and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, determined in accordance with GAAP, as an indication of our financial performance, or to cash flow from operating activities, determined in accordance with GAAP, as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions.
