Our portfolio continues to be healthy as occupancy remained at 98.3% while we recaptured approximately 104% of expiring rent on properties re-leased to existing or new tenants.»

Financial Results

Revenue

Revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 increased 11.6% to $298.0 million, as compared to $267.1 million for the same quarter in 2016.

Net Income Available to Common Stockholders

Net income available to common stockholders for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 was $71.6 million, as compared to $63.5 million for the same quarter in 2016. Net income per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 was $0.27, as compared to $0.25 for the same quarter in 2016.

Net income and funds from operations available to common stockholders for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 were impacted by a $13.4 million non-cash redemption charge on the Class F preferred shares that were redeemed in April 2017, which represents $0.05 per share. This charge is based on the excess of redemption value over the carrying value of the Class F preferred stock that represents the original issuance cost that was paid in 2012.

Net income and funds from operations available to common stockholders for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 were impacted by a non-cash gain of $1.3 million, or $0.005 per share, resulting from fair value adjustments on our interest rate swaps. Each quarter we adjust the carrying value of our interest rate swaps to fair value. The changes in the fair value of our interest rate swaps are recorded to interest expense.

The calculation to determine net income for a real estate company includes impairments, gains on property sales and/or fair value adjustments on interest rate swaps. These items can vary from quarter to quarter and can significantly impact net income and period to period comparisons.

Funds From Operations Available to Common Stockholders (FFO)

FFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 increased 9.7% to $187.2 million, as compared to $170.6 million for the same quarter in 2016. FFO per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 increased 4.4% to $0.71, as compared to $0.68 for the same quarter in 2016.

Adjusted Funds From Operations Available to Common Stockholders (AFFO)

AFFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 increased 14.4% to $201.3 million, as compared to $175.9 million for the same quarter in 2016. AFFO per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 increased 8.6% to $0.76, as compared to $0.70 for the same quarter in 2016.

The company considers FFO and AFFO to be appropriate supplemental measures of a Real Estate Investment Trust’s (REIT’s) operating performance. Realty Income defines FFO, a non-GAAP measure, consistent with the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts’ (NAREIT’s) definition, as net income available to common stockholders, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, plus impairments of real estate assets, and reduced by gains on property sales. AFFO further adjusts FFO for unique revenue and expense items, which the company believes are not as pertinent to the measurement of the company’s ongoing operating performance. Presentation of the information regarding FFO and AFFO is intended to assist the reader in comparing the operating performance of different REITs, although it should be noted that not all REITs calculate FFO and AFFO in the same way, so comparisons with other REITs may not be meaningful. FFO and AFFO should not be considered as alternatives to reviewing our cash flows from operating, investing, and financing activities. In addition, FFO and AFFO should not be considered as measures of liquidity, our ability to make cash distributions, or our ability to pay interest payments. See the reconciliations of net income available to common stockholders to FFO and AFFO on pages six and seven of this press release. 

Dividend Increases

In March 2017, Realty Income announced the 78th consecutive quarterly dividend increase, which is the 91st increase in the amount of the dividend since the company’s listing on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in 1994. The annualized dividend amount as of March 31, 2017 was $2.532 per share. The amount of monthly dividends paid per share increased 6.1% to $0.624 in the first quarter of 2017 from $0.588 in the first quarter of 2016.

As of March 31, 2017, Realty Income’s portfolio of freestanding, single-tenant properties consisted of 4,980 properties located in 49 states and Puerto Rico, leased to 250 different commercial tenants doing business in 47 industries. The properties are leased under long-term, net lease agreements with a weighted average remaining lease term of 9.7 years.

Portfolio Management Activities

The company’s portfolio of commercial real estate, owned primarily under 10- to 20-year net leases, continues to perform well and provides dependable rental revenue supporting the payment of monthly dividends. As of March 31, 2017, portfolio occupancy was 98.3% with 83 properties available for lease out of a total of 4,980 properties in the portfolio, as compared to 98.3% as of December 31, 2016, and 97.8% as of March 31, 2016. Economic occupancy, or occupancy as measured by rental revenue, was 99.0% as of March 31, 2017, as compared to 98.9% as of December 31, 2016, and 98.8% as of March 31, 2016.

Since December 31, 2016, when the company reported 84 properties available for lease, the company had 60 lease expirations, re-leased 49 properties and sold 12 vacant properties during the quarter ended March 31, 2017. Of the 49 properties re-leased during the first quarter of 2017, 46 properties were re-leased to the same tenants and three were re-leased to new tenants after a period of vacancy. The annual new rent on these re-leases was $8,007,000, as compared to the previous annual rent of $7,731,000 on the same properties, representing a rent recapture rate of 103.6% on the properties re-leased during the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  

Rent Increases

During the quarter ended March 31, 2017, same store rents on 4,322 properties under lease increased 1.6% to $250.2 million, as compared to $246.2 million for the same quarter in 2016.  

Investments in Real Estate

During the quarter ended March 31, 2017, Realty Income invested $370.7 million in 60 new properties and properties under development or expansion, located in 18 states. These properties are 100% leased with a weighted average lease term of approximately 16.4 years and an initial average cash lease yield of 6.1%. The tenants occupying the new properties operate in 13 industries, and the property types are 98.7% retail and 1.3% industrial, based on rental revenue. Approximately 68% of the rental revenue generated from acquisitions during the first quarter of 2017 is from investment grade rated tenants.

Property Dispositions

During the quarter ended March 31, 2017, Realty Income sold 14 properties for $31.2 million, with a gain on sales of $10.5 million, as compared to 11 properties sold for $11.0 million, with a gain on sales of $2.3 million, during the same quarter in 2016.

Liquidity and Capital Markets

Capital Raising

In March 2017, Realty Income issued $300 million of senior unsecured notes due 2047 and $400 million of senior unsecured notes due 2026. The public offering price for the 2047 notes was 99.97% of the principal amount for an effective yield to maturity of 4.65%. The public offering price for the 2026 notes was 102.98% of the principal amount for an effective yield to maturity of 3.75%. The 2026 notes constituted a further issuance of, and formed a single series with, the $250 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2026, issued in September 2014.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2017, Realty Income raised $791.7 million from the sale of common stock at a weighted average price of $61.77 per share.

The credit facility also has a $1.0 billion expansion feature. As of March 31, 2017, Realty Income had no outstanding balance on its revolving credit facility.

Redemption of Preferred Stock

In April 2017, Realty Income redeemed all 16,350,000 outstanding shares of the company’s 6.625% Monthly Income Class F Preferred stock for $25 per share, plus accrued dividends. The issuance of the redemption notice prior to the end of the quarter required us to reclassify $408.8 million of preferred stock from stockholders’ equity to liabilities on our consolidated balance sheet at March 31, 2017.

2017 Earnings Guidance

We estimate FFO per share for 2017 of $3.00 to $3.06, an increase of 4.2% to 6.3%, respectively, over 2016 FFO per share of $2.88. FFO per share for 2017 is based on a net income per share range of $1.19 to $1.25, plus estimated real estate depreciation and impairments of $1.90 per share, and reduced by potential estimated gains on sales of investment properties of $0.09 per share (in accordance with NAREIT’s definition of FFO).
