First Quarter Company Headlines

  • Quarterly Collections Continue to Increase - Cash collections from customers continue to improve and were approximately 72% and 77% of contractual cash revenue for the first quarter of 2021 and April 2021, respectively. In addition, year-to-date through April 30, 2021, the Company collected $40.0 million of deferred rent and interest from accrual basis tenants and borrowers that reduced receivables.
  • Strong Increase in Theatre Reopenings Expected - Approximately 71% of the Company's theatre properties were open as of April 30, 2021. Additionally, with Regal's announced reopening schedule, it is expected that by May 21, 2021, approximately 98% of the Company's theatres will be open.
  • Continued Capital Recycling - During the first quarter, the Company received $13.7 million in net proceeds and recognized a net gain of $0.2 million from property dispositions. During the past year, the Company has sold three theatre properties and has an additional six theatres under contract to sell with closings anticipated through the remainder of 2021 and into 2022.
  • Strong Liquidity Position - The Company had cash on hand of $538.1 million at quarter-end. Subsequent to quarter-end, due to stronger collections, proceeds from dispositions and significant liquidity, the Company used $90.0 million of its cash on hand to pay off the remaining borrowings under its $1.0 billion unsecured revolving credit facility.

CEO Comments

“Our first quarter results reflect the acceleration of cash collections from tenants and borrowers,” stated Greg Silvers, Company President and CEO. “We are increasingly optimistic about our outlook as vaccination deployment expands, and consumers are exhibiting their desire to re-engage in the experiences that our customers offer them. We are pleased that most markets are largely open, capacity restrictions are easing, and particularly that the much anticipated reopening of theatres across the country is underway. Having managed our business through the pandemic to preserve liquidity, we believe we are at an inflection point, and with increased visibility look forward to further stabilization and a return to growth.”

COVID-19 Response and Update

Collections and Property Openings

Approximately 96% of the Company's non-theatre and 71% of the Company's theatre locations were open for business as of April 30, 2021. It is expected that by May 21, 2021 approximately 98% of the Company's theatres will be open based on Regal's announced reopening schedule. Cash collections from tenants and borrowers continued to improve and were approximately $98.1 million or 72% of contractual cash revenue for the first quarter (including approximately $1.5 million in deferred rent from cash basis tenants and from tenants for which the deferred payments were not previously recognized as revenue). Such cash collections further increased to 77% for April of 2021. Contractual cash revenue is an operational measure and represents aggregate cash payments for which the Company is entitled under existing contracts, excluding the impact of any temporary abatements or deferrals, percentage rent (rents received over base amounts), non-cash revenue and revenue from taxable REIT subsidiaries (TRSs).

In addition, year-to-date through April 30, 2021, collections of deferred rent and interest from accrual basis tenants and borrowers that reduced receivables totaled approximately $40.0 million. These collections are in addition to the collection amounts discussed above.

Theatre Update

During March of 2021, multiple states, most importantly New York and California, began allowing theatres to reopen with capacity limitations that vary from location to location. As vaccinations increase and theatres reopen, studios are releasing more films. With the increased supply and demand, box office increased in March and again in April. Local capacity restrictions and limited film content continue to create a challenging environment for theatre operators, but with increasing vaccinations, recent box office performance, the current major title release schedule, and expected continuing easing of capacity limitations, the Company anticipates that the US box office will continue to improve throughout the remainder of 2021.

Capital Recycling

During the first quarter of 2021, the Company completed the sale of one theatre property and one outparcel for net proceeds totaling $13.7 million and recognized a combined gain on sale of $0.2 million. During the past year, the Company has sold three theatre properties and has an additional six theatres under contract to sell with closings anticipated through the remainder of 2021 and into 2022.

On March 22, 2021, the Company received $5.1 million in proceeds representing prepayment in full on a mortgage note receivable that was secured by a private school property. No prepayment fee was received in connection with this note payoff.

Strong Liquidity Position

The Company remains focused on maintaining strong liquidity and financial flexibility through the pandemic. The Company had $538.1 million of cash on hand at quarter-end. On April 9, 2021, due to stronger collections, proceeds from dispositions and significant liquidity, the Company used $90.0 million of its cash on hand to pay off the remaining borrowings under its $1.0 billion unsecured revolving credit facility.

Portfolio Update

The Company's total investments (a non-GAAP financial measure) were approximately $6.5 billion at March 31, 2021 with Experiential totaling $5.9 billion, or 91%, and Education totaling $0.6 billion, or 9%.

The Company's Experiential portfolio (excluding property under development) consisted of the following property types (owned or financed) at March 31, 2021:

  • 177 theatre properties;
  • 55 eat & play properties (including seven theatres located in entertainment districts);
  • 18 attraction properties;
  • 13 ski properties;
  • six experiential lodging properties;
  • one gaming property;
  • three cultural properties; and
  • seven fitness & wellness properties.

As of March 31, 2021, the Company's owned Experiential portfolio consisted of approximately 19.3 million square feet, which was 92.8% leased and included $94.8 million in property under development and $20.2 million in undeveloped land inventory.

The Company's Education portfolio consisted of the following property types (owned or financed) at March 31, 2021:

  • 65 early childhood education center properties; and
  • 9 private school properties.

As of March 31, 2021, the Company's owned Education portfolio consisted of approximately 1.4 million square feet, which was 100% leased and included $3.0 million in undeveloped land inventory.

The combined owned portfolio consisted of 20.7 million square feet and was 93.3% leased.

Investment Update

The Company's investment spending during the three months ended March 31, 2021 totaled $52.1 million, and included the acquisition of a Topgolf property in San Jose, California for $26.7 million as well as spending on build-to-suit development and redevelopment projects.

Dividend Information

The monthly cash dividend to common shareholders was suspended following the common share dividend paid on May 15, 2020 to shareholders of record as of April 30, 2020. The Company is restricted from paying dividends on its common shares during the previously disclosed covenant relief period under certain of its debt agreements, subject to certain limited exceptions, and there can be no assurances as to the Company's ability to reinstitute cash dividend payments to common shareholders or the timing thereof.

The Board declared its regular quarterly dividends to preferred shareholders of $0.359375 per share on its 5.75% Series C cumulative convertible preferred shares, $0.5625 per share on its 9.00% Series E cumulative convertible preferred shares and $0.359375 per share on its 5.75% Series G cumulative redeemable preferred shares.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Funds From Operations (FFO), Funds From Operations As Adjusted (FFOAA) and Adjusted Funds From Operations (AFFO)

The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) developed FFO as a relative non-GAAP financial measure of performance of an equity REIT in order to recognize that income-producing real estate historically has not depreciated on the basis determined under GAAP. Pursuant to the definition of FFO by the Board of Governors of NAREIT, the Company calculates FFO as net (loss) income available to common shareholders, computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains and losses from disposition of real estate and impairment losses on real estate, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships, joint ventures and other affiliates. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships, joint ventures and other affiliates are calculated to reflect FFO on the same basis. The Company has calculated FFO for all periods presented in accordance with this definition.

In addition to FFO, the Company presents FFOAA and AFFO. FFOAA is presented by adding to FFO costs associated with loan refinancing or payoff, transaction costs, severance expense, preferred share redemption costs, impairment of operating lease right-of-use assets and credit loss (benefit) expense and subtracting gain on insurance recovery and deferred income tax (benefit) expense. AFFO is presented by adding to FFOAA non-real estate depreciation and amortization, deferred financing fees amortization, share-based compensation expense to management and Trustees and amortization of above and below market leases, net and tenant allowances; and subtracting maintenance capital expenditures (including second generation tenant improvements and leasing commissions), straight-lined rental revenue (removing the impact of straight-lined ground sublease expense), and the non-cash portion of mortgage and other financing income.

FFO, FFOAA and AFFO are widely used measures of the operating performance of real estate companies and are provided here as supplemental measures to GAAP net (loss) income available to common shareholders and earnings per share, and management provides FFO, FFOAA and AFFO herein because it believes this information is useful to investors in this regard. FFO, FFOAA and AFFO are non-GAAP financial measures. FFO, FFOAA and AFFO do not represent cash flows from operations as defined by GAAP and are not indicative that cash flows are adequate to fund all cash needs and are not to be considered alternatives to net income or any other GAAP measure as a measurement of the results of our operations or our cash flows or liquidity as defined by GAAP. It should also be noted that not all REITs calculate FFO, FFOAA and AFFO the same way so comparisons with other REITs may not be meaningful.

The following table summarizes FFO, FFOAA and AFFO for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 and reconciles such measures to net income available to common shareholders, the most directly comparable GAAP measure:

The conversion of the 5.75% Series C cumulative convertible preferred shares and the 9.00% Series E cumulative convertible preferred shares would be dilutive to FFO, FFOAA and AFFO per share for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Therefore, the additional common shares that would result from the conversion and the corresponding add-back of the preferred dividends declared on those shares are included in the calculation of diluted FFO, FFOAA and AFFO per share for this period.

Net Debt

Net Debt represents debt (reported in accordance with GAAP) adjusted to exclude deferred financing costs, net and reduced for cash and cash equivalents. By excluding deferred financing costs, net and reducing debt for cash and cash equivalents on hand, the result provides an estimate of the contractual amount of borrowed capital to be repaid, net of cash available to repay it. The Company believes this calculation constitutes a beneficial supplemental non-GAAP financial disclosure to investors in understanding our financial condition. The Company's method of calculating Net Debt may be different from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs.

Gross Assets

Gross Assets represents total assets (reported in accordance with GAAP) adjusted to exclude accumulated depreciation and reduced for cash and cash equivalents. By excluding accumulated depreciation and reducing cash and cash equivalents, the result provides an estimate of the investment made by the Company. The Company believes that investors commonly use versions of this calculation in a similar manner. The Company's method of calculating Gross Assets may be different from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs.

Net Debt to Gross Assets

Net Debt to Gross Assets is a supplemental measure derived from non-GAAP financial measures that the Company uses to evaluate capital structure and the magnitude of debt to gross assets. The Company believes that investors commonly use versions of this ratio in a similar manner. The Company's method of calculating Net Debt to Gross Assets may be different from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs.

EBITDAre

NAREIT developed EBITDAre as a relative non-GAAP financial measure of REITs, independent of a company's capital structure, to provide a uniform basis to measure the enterprise value of a company. Pursuant to the definition of EBITDAre by the Board of Governors of NAREIT, the Company calculates EBITDAre as net (loss) income, computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding interest expense (net), income tax (benefit) expense, depreciation and amortization, gains and losses from disposition of real estate, impairment losses on real estate, costs associated with loan refinancing or payoff and adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships, joint ventures and other affiliates.

Management provides EBITDAre herein because it believes this information is useful to investors as a supplemental performance measure as it can help facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and with other REITs. The Company's method of calculating EBITDAre may be different from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs. EBITDAre is not a measure of performance under GAAP, does not represent cash generated from operations as defined by GAAP and is not indicative of cash available to fund all cash needs, including distributions. This measure should not be considered an alternative to net income or any other GAAP measure as a measurement of the results of the Company's operations or cash flows or liquidity as defined by GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDAre

Management uses Adjusted EBITDAre in its analysis of the performance of the business and operations of the Company. Management believes Adjusted EBITDAre is useful to investors because it excludes various items that management believes are not indicative of operating performance, and that it is an informative measure to use in computing various financial ratios to evaluate the Company. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDAre as EBITDAre (defined above) for the quarter excluding gain on insurance recovery, severance expense, credit loss (benefit) expense, transaction costs, impairment losses on operating lease right-of-use assets and prepayment fees. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, Adjusted EBITDAre was further adjusted to reflect the write-offs of straight-line rent receivables against rental revenue of $12.5 million related to the COVID-19 disruption.

The Company's method of calculating Adjusted EBITDAre may be different from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs. Adjusted EBITDAre is not a measure of performance under GAAP, does not represent cash generated from operations as defined by GAAP and is not indicative of cash available to fund all cash needs, including distributions. This measure should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other GAAP measure as a measurement of the results of the Company's operations or cash flows or liquidity as defined by GAAP.

Reconciliations of debt, total assets and net income (all reported in accordance with GAAP) to Net Debt, Gross Assets, Net Debt to Gross Assets, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDA (each of which is a non-GAAP financial measure), as applicable, are included in the following tables (unaudited, in thousands):

Total Investments

Total investments is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as the sum of the carrying values of real estate investments (before accumulated depreciation), land held for development, property under development, mortgage notes receivable (including related accrued interest receivable), investment in joint ventures, intangible assets, gross (before accumulated amortization and included in other assets) and notes receivable and related accrued interest receivable, net (included in other assets). Total investments is a useful measure for management and investors as it illustrates across which asset categories the Company's funds have been invested. Our method of calculating total investments may be different from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs. A reconciliation of total investments to total assets (computed in accordance with GAAP) is included in the following table (unaudited, in thousands):
