CIM Commercial Trust Corporation Reports 2021 Second Quarter Results

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CIM Commercial Trust Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCT and TASE: CMCT-L) (“we”, “our”, “CMCT”, “CIM Commercial”, or the “Company”), a real estate investment trust (“REIT”), today reported operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.

Second Quarter 2021 Highlights

Portfolio

  • Same-store(1) office portfolio was 78.5% leased.
  • Executed 21,913 square feet of leases with terms longer than 12 months.

Financial Results

  • Net loss attributable to common stockholders of $4.2 million, or $0.28 per diluted share.
  • Funds from operations (“FFO”) attributable to common stockholders(2) was $859,000, or $0.06 per diluted share.
  • Core FFO attributable to common stockholders(3) was $1.0 million, or $0.06 per diluted share.

Management Commentary

“Our core funds from operations was $0.06 per share during the second quarter of 2021, compared to a loss of $0.19 per share in the first quarter. The increase was primarily driven by strength in our lending division and improving operating trends at our hotel,” said David Thompson, Chief Executive Officer of CIM Commercial.

“As the quarter progressed, we continued to see improved office leasing activity, hotel occupancy and hotel room bookings for 2022. Our hotel occupancy improved to 59% in June 2021, from 38% in April 2021, while our 2022 hotel bookings are now at nearly 90% of pre-Covid levels with a higher average daily rate1.

Our recently completed rights offering significantly improved our balance sheet and we are focused on acquiring cash flowing true creative office, multifamily, retail, parking, in-fill industrial and limited-service hospitality assets in vibrant and improving metropolitan communities. It is our intention that no acquisition will exceed more than 10% of the Company’s gross asset value. We intend to finance these acquisitions with a balance of common equity, preferred equity and debt and we will continue to build the quality of our balance sheet while growing the portfolio.

We have an attractive portfolio with significant same store growth opportunity, and we may have opportunities to dispose of some of those assets at attractive prices. To the extent that we do so, we will seek to redeploy proceeds in the same profile of assets that we are pursuing with the capital we have raised.”

Second Quarter 2021 Results

Portfolio

As of June 30, 2021, our real estate portfolio consisted of 12 assets, all of which were fee-simple properties. The portfolio included nine office properties and one development site, which is being used as a parking lot, totaling approximately 1.3 million rentable square feet, and one 503-room hotel with an ancillary parking garage.

Financial Results

Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $4.2 million, or $0.28 per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended June 30, 2021, compared to $8.1 million, or $0.55 per diluted share of common stock, for the same period in 2020.

FFO attributable to common stockholders(2) was $859,000, or $0.06 per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended June 30, 2021, compared to a loss of $2.9 million, or $0.20 per diluted share of common stock, for the same period in 2020.

Core FFO attributable to common stockholders(3) was $1.0 million, or $0.06 per diluted share of common stock, for the three months ended June 30, 2021, compared to a loss of $2.8 million, or $0.19 per diluted share of common stock, for the same period in 2020. The increase in Core FFO is primarily attributable to an increase in segment net operating income, partially offset by a decrease in redeemable preferred stock dividends declared or accumulated.

Segment Information

Our reportable segments during the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 consisted of two types of commercial real estate properties, namely, office and hotel, as well as a segment for our lending business. Total Segment net operating income (“NOI”)(4) was $12.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021, compared to $7.0 million for the same period in 2020.

Office

Same-Store

Same-store(1) office Segment NOI(4) decreased 11.5%, while same-store(1) office Cash NOI(5), excluding lease termination income, decreased 12.5% for the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. The decrease is primarily due to lower revenues at an office property in Los Angeles, California and at an office property in Beverly Hills, California due to decreases in occupancy as compared to the same period in 2020.

At June 30, 2021, the Company’s same-store(1) office portfolio was 77.8% occupied, a decrease of 280 basis points year-over-year on a same-store(1) basis, and 78.5% leased, a decrease of 250 basis points year-over-year on a same-store(1) basis. The annualized rent per occupied square foot(6) on a same-store(1) basis was $52.36 at June 30, 2021 compared to $50.29 at June 30, 2020. During the three months ended June 30, 2021, the Company executed 16,754 square feet of recurring leases at our same-store(1) office portfolio.

Total

Office Segment NOI(4) decreased to $7.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021, from $8.3 million for the same period in 2020. The decrease is primarily due to a decrease in same-store(1) office Segment NOI(4) as described above, partially offset by increased revenues from two properties acquired subsequent to April 1, 2020.

Hotel

Hotel Segment NOI(4) increased to a loss of $2,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2021, from a loss of $1.1 million for the same period in 2020, due to an increase in occupancy, average daily rate, and food, beverage, and other sundry hotel services as a result of the easing of government restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Monthly occupancy was 38%, 46% and 59% in April, May and June 2021, respectively. The following table sets forth the occupancy, average daily rate and revenue per available room for our hotel for the specified periods:

Lending

Our lending segment primarily consists of our SBA 7(a) lending platform, which is a national lender that primarily originates loans to small businesses in the hospitality industry. Lending Segment NOI(4) was $5.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021, compared to a loss of $110,000 for the same period in 2020. The increase is primarily due to an increase in premium income from the sale of the guaranteed portion of our SBA 7(a) loans benefited by an increase in the SBA guaranty support from a maximum of 75% per loan to 90% per loan and higher market premiums (noting that the level of guaranty support from the SBA is not permanent and may change back to 75% at any time by act of Congress). In addition, there was an increase in interest income resulting from an increase in the average outstanding portfolio balance during the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020.

Debt and Equity

During the three months ended June 30, 2021, we issued 430,082 shares of Series A Preferred Stock and 7,835 shares of Series D Preferred Stock for aggregate net proceeds of $10.1 million. Net proceeds represent gross proceeds offset by costs specifically identifiable to the offering of Series A Preferred Stock and Series D Preferred Stock, such as commissions, dealer manager fees, and other offering fees and expenses. Additionally during the three months ended June 30, 2021, we conducted a rights offering under which we issued an aggregate of 8,521,589 shares of Common Stock for aggregate net proceeds of $76.9 million. Such proceeds were used to fund a paydown of $75.0 million on our revolving credit facility in June 2021 until they are deployed for their intended use for the development or repositioning of properties, releasing of space in existing properties, capital expenditures, acquisitions consistent with our acquisition and asset management strategies, or other general corporate purposes.

Dividends

On June 7, 2021, we declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.0750 per share of our common stock, which was paid on June 30, 2021 to stockholders of record at the close of business on June 17, 2021.

On June 7, 2021, we declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.34375 per share of our Series A Preferred Stock or portion thereof for issuances during the second quarter of 2021. The dividend is payable as follows: $0.114583 per share on July 15, 2021, August 16, 2021 and September 15, 2021 to stockholders of record at the close of business on July 5, 2021, August 5, 2021 and September 5, 2021, respectively.

On June 7, 2021, we declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.35313 per share of our Series D Preferred Stock, or portion thereof for issuances during the second quarter of 2021. The dividend is payable as follows: $0.117708 per share on July 15, 2021, August 16, 2021 and September 15, 2021 to stockholders of record at the close of business on July 5, 2021, August 5, 2021 and September 5, 2021, respectively.

About the Data

Descriptions of certain performance measures, including Segment NOI, Cash NOI, FFO attributable to common stockholders, and Core FFO are provided below. Refer to the subsequent tables for reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

(1)

Same-store properties: are properties that we have owned and operated in a consistent manner and reported in our consolidated results during the entire span of the periods being reported. We excluded from our same-store property set this quarter any properties (i) acquired on or after April 1, 2020; (ii) sold or otherwise removed from our consolidated financial statements on or before June 30, 2021; or (iii) that underwent a major repositioning project we believed significantly affected its results at any point during the period commencing on April 1, 2020 and ending on June 30, 2021. When determining our same-store properties as of June 30, 2021, one property was excluded pursuant to (i) and (iii) above and no properties were excluded pursuant to (ii) above.

 

(2)

FFO attributable to common stockholders: represents net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, computed in accordance with GAAP, which reflects the deduction of redeemable preferred stock dividends accumulated, excluding gain (or loss) from sales of real estate, impairment of real estate, and real estate depreciation and amortization. We calculate FFO in accordance with the standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (the “NAREIT”). See ‘Core FFO’ definition below for discussion of the benefits and limitations of FFO as a supplemental measure of operating performance.

 

(3)

Core FFO attributable to common stockholders (“Core FFO”): represents FFO attributable to common stockholders (computed as described above), excluding gain (loss) on early extinguishment of debt, redeemable preferred stock deemed dividends, redeemable preferred stock redemptions, gain (loss) on termination of interest rate swaps, and transaction costs.

 

 

We believe that FFO is a widely recognized and appropriate measure of the performance of a REIT and that it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their results. In addition, we believe that Core FFO is a useful metric for securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of our Company as it excludes from FFO the effect of certain amounts that we believe are non-recurring, are non-operating in nature as they relate to the manner in which we finance our operations, or transactions outside of the ordinary course of business.

 

 

Like any metric, FFO and Core FFO should not be used as the only measure of our performance because it excludes depreciation and amortization and captures neither the changes in the value of our real estate properties that result from use or market conditions nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties, and Core FFO excludes amounts incurred in connection with non-recurring special projects, prepaying or defeasing our debt, repurchasing our preferred stock, and adjusting the carrying value of our preferred stock classified in temporary equity to its redemption value, all of which have real economic effect and could materially impact our operating results. Other REITs may not calculate FFO and Core FFO in the same manner as we do, or at all; accordingly, our FFO and Core FFO may not be comparable to the FFOs and Core FFOs of other REITs. Therefore, FFO and Core FFO should be considered only as a supplement to net income (loss) as a measure of our performance and should not be used as a supplement to or substitute measure for cash flows from operating activities computed in accordance with GAAP. FFO and Core FFO should not be used as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends. FFO and Core FFO per share for the year-to-date period may differ from the sum of quarterly FFO and Core FFO per share amounts due to the required method for computing per share amounts for the respective periods. In addition, FFO and Core FFO per share is calculated independently for each component and may not be additive due to rounding.

 

(4)

Segment NOI: for our real estate segments represents rental and other property income and expense reimbursements less property related expenses and excludes non-property income and expenses, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, corporate related general and administrative expenses, gain (loss) on sale of real estate, gain (loss) on early extinguishment of debt, impairment of real estate, transaction costs, and benefit (provision) for income taxes. For our lending segment, Segment NOI represents interest income net of interest expense and general overhead expenses. See ‘Cash NOI’ definition below for discussion of the benefits and limitations of Segment NOI as a supplemental measure of operating performance.

 

(5)

Cash NOI: for our real estate segments, represents Segment NOI adjusted to exclude the effect of the straight lining of rents, acquired above/below market lease amortization and other adjustments required by generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). For our lending segment, there is no distinction between Cash NOI and Segment NOI. We also evaluate the operating performance and financial results of our operating segments using cash basis NOI excluding lease termination income, or “Cash NOI excluding lease termination income”.

 

 

Segment NOI and Cash NOI are not measures of operating results or cash flows from operating activities as measured by GAAP and should not be considered alternatives to income from continuing operations, or to cash flows as a measure of liquidity, or as an indication of our performance or of our ability to pay dividends. Companies may not calculate Segment NOI or Cash NOI in the same manner. We consider Segment NOI and Cash NOI to be useful performance measures to investors and management because, when compared across periods, they reflect the revenues and expenses directly associated with owning and operating our properties and the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs, providing a perspective not immediately apparent from income from continuing operations. Additionally, we believe that Cash NOI is helpful to investors because it eliminates straight line rent and other non-cash adjustments to revenue and expenses.

 

(6)

Annualized rent per occupied square foot: represents gross monthly base rent under leases commenced as of the specified periods, multiplied by twelve. This amount reflects total cash rent before abatements. Where applicable, annualized rent has been grossed up by adding annualized expense reimbursements to base rent. Annualized rent for certain office properties includes rent attributable to retail.

I have been using organic and natural cosmetics since my teenage years, but I've never seen such a huge range of it in one place. Not only cosmetics, all they sell is highly organic and natural. Totally recommended.

Ordered some cosmetics for my mother and me and was very pleased with the quick shipping time, great communication from operator's side, and cute packaging when the products arrived! I'll definitely order from them again!
