Chambers Street - Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Core FFO per Diluted Share Increases 23.1% to $0.16 Compared to the Same Period Last Year

PRINCETON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Chambers Street Properties (NYS: CSG) ("Chambers Street" or the "Company"), a real estate investment trust focused on acquiring, owning and managing net leased industrial and office properties, today reported its financial results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013.


"Our portfolio produced solid operating results in the second quarter 2013, with strong leasing activity and recent acquisitions driving Core Funds from Operations to $0.16 per diluted share," stated Jack A. Cuneo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Chambers Street. "In May, we completed the listing of our shares on the New York Stock Exchange, which we believe will provide us access to additional capital sources, enabling us to continue to execute our long-term strategies. We remain committed to our long-standing, disciplined approach of growing the Company and increasing cash flows, while maintaining a strong balance sheet to ensure our financial flexibility to take advantage of opportunities that align with our goals."

Operational and Financial Highlights Second Quarter 2013

  • Core Funds from Operations ("Core FFO") of $0.16 per diluted share, a 23.1% increase compared to $0.13 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.
  • Funds from Operations ("FFO"), as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"), of $0.13 per diluted share, an 8.3% increase compared to $0.12 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.
  • Net loss of $3.6 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $1.9 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.
  • Portfolio occupancy and percentage leased of 95.5% at quarter end.
  • Executed over 1,345,000 square feet of new, renewal and expansion leases in the first six months of 2013.
  • Completed the listing of the Company's common shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "CSG".

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2013

Core FFO for the second quarter of 2013 was $40.9 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to $31.6 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012. The increase in our Core FFO was driven by the acquisition of the minority interest in 17 properties previously owned in the Company's Duke joint venture, and the completion and rent commencement of the 1400 Atwater Drive build-to-suit project located in Malvern, Pennsylvania.

FFO as defined by NAREIT for the second quarter 2013 was $33.0 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, as compared to $29.2 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012. The increase in our FFO was driven by the same factors that increased our Core FFO offset by higher non-recurring listing and transition expenses.

Net loss for the second quarter 2013 totaled $3.6 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $1.9 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012.

Financing and Capital Transactions

In May, the Company listed its common shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "CSG". Simultaneously with the listing, the Company executed a modified "Dutch Auction" tender offer, through which it purchased and retired approximately 12.38 million common shares, for $10.10 per share. At June 30, 2013, the Company had approximately 236.95 million common shares outstanding.

Common Share Dividend

On April 26, 2013, the board of trustees approved a quarterly distribution to shareholders of $0.125 per common share for the third quarter of 2013. The distribution will be paid on October 11, 2013 to shareholders of record on September 26, 2013. On August 4, 2013, the board of trustees decided that, beginning in the fourth quarter 2013, the Company will pay its dividend on a monthly basis.

2013 Guidance

The Company is providing full year 2013 guidance for Core FFO of $0.57 to $0.62 per diluted share, based on management's expectations as of the date of this release, representing an increase of at least 18.8% over its Core FFO for 2012 of $0.48 per share. The guidance presented does not include the effects of property acquisitions, dispositions, or capital transaction activity completed subsequent to June 30, 2013, except those previously announced and completed. The foregoing estimates are forward-looking and reflect management's view of current and future market conditions, including leasing activity, rental rates, occupancy levels, interest rates and the amount and timing of acquisitions. The Company may change its guidance as actual and anticipated results vary from management's assumptions.
