  • Invested $209.9 million in 83 new properties and properties under development or expansion

CEO Comments

"We achieved solid financial results for the quarter with healthy earnings and dividend growth," said John P. Case, Realty Income's Chief Executive Officer. "Additionally, our company reached two very significant milestones this year. First, in January, we were recognized for increasing our dividend for 20 consecutive years by being added to the exclusive S&P High Yield Dividend Aristocrats® index. Then, in April, we were added to the S&P 500 index, joining this group of premier, large-cap, publicly traded companies."

"We issued $379 million of equity during the first four months of the year at an attractive cost to the company. We continue to see an active flow of investment opportunities and believe that our acquisitions for the year will be at the high end of our previous 2015 acquisitions guidance range of $700 million to $1 billion. Subsequent to the first quarter-end, we closed an additional $302 million in acquisitions. We are pleased with our completion of $512 million in acquisitions during the first four months of the year and with the investment opportunities we continue to see in the acquisitions market."

Financial Results

Revenue
Revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 increased 11.4% to $246.9 million, as compared to $221.6 million for the same quarter in 2014.

Net Income Available to Common Stockholders
Net income available to common stockholders for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 was $60.5 million, as compared to $47.2 million for the same quarter in 2014. Net income per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 was $0.27, as compared to $0.23 for the same quarter in 2014.

The calculation to determine net income for a real estate company includes impairments and/or gains on property sales. Impairments and/or gains on property sales vary from quarter to quarter. This variance can significantly impact net income and period to period comparisons.

Funds From Operations (FFO) Available to Common Stockholders

FFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 increased 13.7% to $152.9 million, as compared to $134.5 million for the same quarter in 2014. FFO per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 increased 4.6% to $0.68, as compared to $0.65 for the same quarter in 2014.

Adjusted Funds From Operations (AFFO) Available to Common Stockholders

AFFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 increased 14.6% to $152.1 million, as compared to $132.7 million for the same quarter in 2014. AFFO per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 increased 4.7% to $0.67, as compared to $0.64 for the same quarter in 2014.

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 consistent with the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trust's (NAREIT's) definition, as net income available to common stockholders, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, plus impairments of real estate, reduced by gains on sales of investment properties and extraordinary items. 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. See the reconciliation of net income available to common stockholders to FFO and AFFO on page five. 

Dividend Information

In March 2015, Realty Income announced the 70th consecutive quarterly dividend increase, which is the 80th increase in the amount of the dividend since the company's listing on the New York Stock Exchange in 1994. The annualized dividend amount, as of March 31, 2015, was $2.274 per share. The amount of monthly dividends paid per share increased 2.6% to $0.561 in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $0.547 per share for the same period in 2014. Realty Income has a dividend reinvestment and stock purchase program that can be accessed at www.realtyincome.com. The program is administered by Wells Fargo Shareowner Services.

Real Estate Portfolio Update

As of March 31, 2015, Realty Income's portfolio of freestanding, single-tenant properties consisted of 4,378 properties located in 49 states and Puerto Rico, leased to 236 commercial tenants doing business in 47 industries. The properties are leased under long-term, net leases with a weighted average remaining lease term of approximately 10.1 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 provide dependable lease revenue supporting the payment of monthly dividends. As of March 31, 2015, portfolio occupancy was 98.0% with 86 properties available for lease out of a total of 4,378 properties in the portfolio, as compared to 98.3% portfolio occupancy, or 73 properties available for lease, as of March 31, 2014. Economic occupancy, or occupancy as measured by rental revenue, was 99.1% as of March 31, 2015, as compared to 99.0% economic occupancy as of March 31, 2014.

Since December 31, 2014, when the company reported 70 properties available for lease, the company had 64 lease expirations, re-leased 43 properties and sold five vacant properties. Of the 43 properties re-leased during the first quarter of 2015, 30 properties were re-leased to existing tenants, two were re-leased to new tenants without vacancy, and 11 were re-leased to new tenants after a period of vacancy. The annual new rent on these re-leases was $11.7 million, as compared to the previous annual rent of $11.8 million on the same properties, representing a rent recapture rate of 99.2%.

Rent Increases

During the quarter ended March 31, 2015, same store rents on 3,695 properties under lease increased 1.4% to $201.1 million, as compared to $198.4 million for the same quarter in 2014.

Property Acquisitions

During the quarter ended March 31, 2015, Realty Income invested $209.9 million in 83 new properties and properties under development or expansion, located in 24 states. These properties are 100% leased with a weighted average lease term of approximately 15.5 years and an initial average lease yield of 6.9%. The tenants occupying the new properties operate in 12 industries, and the property types consist of 74.2% retail and 25.8% industrial and distribution, based on rental revenue. Approximately 60% of the rental revenue generated from acquisitions during the first quarter of 2015 is from investment grade rated tenants.

Property Dispositions

During the quarter ended March 31, 2015, Realty Income sold 9 properties for $22.3 million, with a gain on sales of $7.2 million, as compared to 11 properties sold for $12.7 million, with a gain on sales of $3.9 million, during the same quarter in 2014.

Liquidity and Capital Markets

Realty Income maintains a $1.5 billion unsecured acquisition credit facility, which is used to fund property acquisitions in the near term. As of March 31, 2015, $1.13 billion was available on the credit facility to fund additional acquisitions.  As of April 29, 2015, we have a borrowing capacity of approximately $1.1 billion available on the credit facility.

Issued 5.5 Million Shares in Common Stock Offering

On April 10, 2015, Realty Income issued 5.5 million common shares.  Net proceeds of $276.3 million were used to repay a portion of borrowings under the company's acquisition credit facility.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2015, Realty Income issued 2,023,276 common shares via its Stock Plan, generating gross proceeds of $102.2 million.

2015 Earnings Guidance

FFO per share for 2015 should range from $2.67 to $2.72 per share, an increase of 3.5% to 5.4% over 2014 FFO per share of $2.58. FFO per share for 2015 is based on a net income per share range of $0.99 to $1.04, plus estimated real estate depreciation of $1.77 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). 

AFFO per share for 2015 should range from $2.66 to $2.71 per share, an increase of 3.5% to 5.4% over the 2014 AFFO per share of $2.57. AFFO further adjusts FFO for unique revenue and expense items, which are not as pertinent to the measurement of the company's ongoing operating performance.
