Seritage Growth Properties Reports Second Quarter 2022 Operating Results

NEW YORK, August 09, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Seritage Growth Properties (NYSE: SRG) (the "Company"), a national owner and developer of 150 retail, residential and mixed-use properties today reported financial and operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022.

"This has been an extremely productive quarter for the Company. Our operating momentum continues with strong leasing, development and entitlement progress. We now have only one major development in active construction, Aventura, which is over 75% leased including leases under negotiation and is set to open to the public in Q422. With the great strides we are making in our disposition and strategic process, and after taking our obligations into account, we were pleased to be able to pay down another $100M of our term loan facility in August. Based on our current projections, we expect to continue more regular debt paydowns, reducing our cash burn and bringing us closer to extending our debt before its maturity," said Andrea Olshan, Chief Executive Officer and President.

Financial Highlights:

For the three months ended June 30, 2022:

  • Net loss attributable to common shareholders of ($112.0) million, or ($2.56) per share

  • Total Net Operating Income ("Total NOI") of $10.6 million, which is an increase of 26% when compared to assets held in the same manner at June 30, 2021

  • As of June 30, 2022, the Company had cash on hand of $156.7 million, including $7.2 million of restricted cash. As of August 5, 2022, the Company had cash on hand of $97.8 million, including $10.8 million of restricted cash, after making a $100 million principal pay down on the Company’s term loan facility ("Term Loan Facility")

  • Subsequent to June 30, reduced the balance of the Term Loan Facility to $1.34 billion, resulting in a reduction to $540 million of paydowns required to extend Term Loan Facility

Highlights

  • Signed 13 leases covering 211 thousand square feet (144 thousand at share) in the second quarter at an average projected annual rent of $15.52 PSF ($18.75 PSF at share).

  • Signed leases in the second quarter included:

    • Three new leases covering approximately 8 thousand square feet of retail at Premier assets at an average projected annual rent of $105.95 PSF net, bringing the portfolio to 64.5% leased;

    • Seven leases covering approximately 54 thousand square feet at Multi-Tenant Retail assets at an average projected annual rent of $18.61 PSF net, bringing occupancy of the Multi-Tenant Retail portfolio up to 84.0%;

    • One retail lease covering approximately 8 thousand square feet of retail at a Residential asset at an average projected annual rent of $54.00 PSF net;

    • One retail lease covering approximately 14 thousand square feet at a Non-Core asset at an average projected annual rent of $16.00 PSF net; and

    • One retail lease covering approximately 127 thousand square feet (63 thousand at share) at other unconsolidated entities signed at an average projected annual rent of $5.66 PSF net;

  • Leases signed subsequent to quarter end were:

    • Eight thousand square feet of outparcels at Multi-Tenant Retail assets at a base rent of $21.88 PSF net;

    • Four thousand square feet (two thousand at share) of ground floor retail at Premier assets at a base rent of $90.87 PSF net; and

    • Two thousand square feet of second floor office at Premier assets at a base rent of $72.00 PSF net.

  • An additional 25 leases under negotiation representing over 300 thousand square feet at an average projected base rent of $20.54 PSF ($19.89 PSF at share) net;

  • Brought 11 tenants online representing 273 thousand square feet (255 thousand at share) and $3.4 million in annual base rent ($3.0 million at share);

  • Generated $163.4 million of gross proceeds through disposition activity during the three months ended June 30, 2022. Subsequent to quarter end, the Company generated $102.3 million of gross proceeds through disposition activity; and

  • The Company has additional asset sales under contract for anticipated gross proceeds of $260.8 million, subject to buyer diligence and closing conditions and is currently negotiating sales, evaluating bona fide offers received and marketing or about to bring to market over $1.2 billion of properties for sale at estimated fair value, which would provide sufficient proceeds to qualify the Company for the extension of its $1.34 billion Term Loan Facility, assuming all deals closed prior to July 2023 as anticipated.

During the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company invested $18.4 million in its consolidated development and operating properties and an additional $2.6 million into its unconsolidated entities.

Aventura:

During the second quarter of 2022, the Company continued to advance 216,000 square feet of mixed-use activation at the project in Aventura, FL. The Company continues to advance construction on Aventura and remains on track to grand open to the public in the fourth quarter of 2022.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2022, the Company signed new leases totaling eight thousand square feet at an average base rent of $105.95 PSF net. As of June 30, 2022, the Company has 138 thousand square feet signed but not opened. With occupancy at 63.9%, the Company has 78 thousand square feet available for lease, 26 thousand square feet in lease negotiation and leasing activity on over 20 thousand square feet.

San Diego UTC:

As of June 30, 2022, the property has 43 thousand in-place leased square feet and 155 thousand square feet signed but not opened. Subsequent to quarter end, the Company signed new leases totaling four thousand square feet (two thousand at share) at a base rent of $90.87 PSF net. With occupancy at 93.1% (100% of office space is leased and approximately 83.6% of Retail), the Company has now stabilized the first phase and has 15 thousand square feet available for lease. The company has 11 thousand square feet of leases in negotiation at this time.

Residential

During the quarter, we prioritized entitling properties with the clearest line of sight to development and are currently looking to monetize 14 assets previously held for residential. The Company continues to advance residential plans and entitlement applications for 10 to 15 properties with a target of 3,700 to 4,600 residential units.

Dispositions

During the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company sold 13 properties, generating $163.4 million of gross proceeds. Of the Q2 transactions:

  • $61.4 million of gross proceeds were from vacant assets sold at $74.87 PSF. The sale of these assets eliminates $2.5 million of carrying costs; and

  • $102.0 million of gross proceeds were from stabilized asset sales at a 4.4 % blended in-place capitalization rate.

During the quarter and subsequently, the Company was able to generate a robust sales pipeline. As of August 8, 2022, we had assets under contract for sale with no contingencies for total anticipated proceeds of $83.5 million and assets under contract for sale for total anticipated proceeds of $177.3 million, subject to customary due diligence and closing conditions. Since Seritage began its capital recycling program in July 2017, the Company has raised approximately $1.6 billion of gross cash proceeds from the sale of wholly-owned properties or joint venture interests in 134 properties, plus outparcels at various properties. We have projected sales in negotiation, are evaluating bona fide offers received, and are marketing or about to bring to market assets with an estimated fair value of $1.2 billion, which would provide sufficient proceeds to qualify the Company for the extension of its $1.34 billion Term Loan Facility, assuming all deals closed prior to July 2023 as anticipated.

The Company collected 99% of its billed rent and other recoverable expenses for the second quarter.

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had cash on hand of $156.7 million, including $7.2 million of restricted cash. The Company expects to use these sources of liquidity, together with a combination of future sales and/or potential debt and capital markets transactions, to fund its operations and select development activity. The availability of funding from sales of assets, partnerships and credit or capital markets transactions is subject to various conditions, and there can be no assurance that such transactions will be consummated. For more information on our liquidity position, including our going concern analysis, please see the notes to the condensed consolidated financial statements included in Part I, Item 1 and in the section entitled "Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations," each in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

Dividends

On February 16, 2022, the Company’s Board of Trustees declared a preferred stock dividend of $0.4375 per each Series A Preferred Share. The preferred dividend was paid on April 15, 2022 to holders of record on March 31, 2022.

On April 26, 2022, the Company’s Board of Trustees declared a preferred stock dividend of $0.4375 per each Series A Preferred Share. The preferred dividend will be payable on July 15, 2022 to holders of record on June 30, 2022.

On July 26, 2022, the Company’s Board of Trustees declared a preferred stock dividend of $0.4375 per each Series A Preferred Share. The preferred dividend will be payable on October 17, 2022 to holders of record on September 30, 2022.

The Company’s Board of Trustees does not expect to declare dividends on its common shares in 2022.

Strategic Review/Preliminary Proxy Materials

On July 7, 2022, we filed our preliminary proxy materials with the SEC in connection with our 2022 Annual Meeting of Shareholders seeking a shareholder vote to approve a proposed plan of sale of the Company’s assets and dissolution (the "Plan of Sale") that will allow the Board to sell all of our assets, distribute the net proceeds to shareholders and dissolve the Company. The Plan of Sale is expected to increase the universe of potential buyers by allowing Seritage and potential buyers to enter into and complete value maximizing transactions without subjecting any such transaction to the delay and conditionality associated with having to seek and obtain shareholder approval. The affirmative vote of at least two-thirds of all outstanding common shares of the Company is required to approve the Plan of Sale. On July 6, 2022, Edward Lampert, the Company’s former Chairman, entered into a Voting and Support Agreement under which he exchanged his equity interest in the Operating Partnership for Class A common shares and agreed to vote his shares in favor of the Plan of Sale. As of July 6, 2022, after giving effect to the exchange of his Operating Partnership interests, Mr. Lampert owns approximately 29.1% of the Company’s outstanding Class A common shares, and Seritage is the sole owner of all outstanding Operating Partnership interests. The strategic review process remains ongoing, and the Company remains open-minded to pursuing value maximizing alternatives, including a potential sale of the Company. There can be no assurance regarding the success of the process.

Sears Bankruptcy Litigation

On April 6, 2022, the Court entered an order in the Consolidated Litigation, upon the agreement of the parties thereto, providing for a mediation of the litigation. The parties and the Court extended the mediation several times, through August, and up until the settlement described below was reached.

On August 9, 2022, following the mediation, all of the parties to the Litigation and certain of the parties to the Shareholder Litigation (to which Seritage is not a defendant) entered into a settlement agreement pursuant to which, pending final Court approval, the defendants will pay to the Sears estate $175 million (of which the Seritage Defendants will contribute approximately $35 million) in exchange for dismissal of the Consolidated Litigation and for the full and final satisfaction and release of all claims in the Consolidated Litigation (including, in the case of the Seritage Defendants, any and all claims between the Seritage Defendants and the Sears estate in the Sears bankruptcy proceeding). The settlement is subject to final Court approval, following notice and an opportunity for objections (if any) at a hearing currently scheduled for August 31, 2022. As previously disclosed, the Company remains in active litigation with its D&O insurers concerning potential coverage for the Consolidated Litigation, and any amounts received from the insurers will offset the Seritage Defendants’ approximately $35 million contribution.

While the Company believes that the claims against the Seritage Defendants in the Consolidated Litigation are without merit, the Company has entered into the settlement, without admitting any fault or wrongdoing, in order to avoid the continued imposition of legal defense costs, distraction, and the uncertainty and risk inherent in any litigation. If the settlement does not receive final Court approval, the Company intends to defend against the claims in the Consolidated Litigation vigorously. The Company has reserved $35 million based on the Company’s contribution to the proposed settlement, subject to final Court approval, of the Consolidated Litigation. This estimate is recorded as litigation reserve in the condensed consolidated statement of operations during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022.

Supplemental Report

A Supplemental Report will be available in the Investors section of the Company’s website, www.seritage.com.

COVID-19 Pandemic

The Coronavirus ("COVID-19") pandemic has caused significant impacts on the real estate industry in the United States, including the Company’s properties.

As a result of the development, fluidity and uncertainty surrounding this situation, the Company expects that these conditions may change, potentially significantly, in future periods and results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 may not be indicative of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s business for future periods. As such, the Company cannot reasonably estimate the impact of COVID-19 on its financial condition, results of operations or cash flows over the foreseeable future.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company makes reference to NOI and Total NOI which are financial measures that include adjustments to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP").

Neither of NOI or Total NOI are measures that (i) represent cash flow from operations as defined by GAAP; (ii) are indicative of cash available to fund all cash flow needs, including the ability to make distributions; (iii) are alternatives to cash flow as a measure of liquidity; or (iv) should be considered alternatives to net income (which is determined in accordance with GAAP) for purposes of evaluating the Company’s operating performance. Reconciliations of these measures to the respective GAAP measures the Company deems most comparable have been provided in the tables accompanying this press release.

Net Operating Income ("NOI") and Total NOI

NOI is defined as income from property operations less property operating expenses. Other real estate companies may use different methodologies for calculating NOI, and accordingly the Company’s depiction of NOI may not be comparable to other real estate companies. The Company believes NOI provides useful information regarding Seritage, its financial condition, and results of operations because it reflects only those income and expense items that are incurred at the property level.

The Company also uses Total NOI, which includes its proportional share of unconsolidated properties. This form of presentation offers insights into the financial performance and condition of the Company as a whole given the Company’s ownership of unconsolidated properties that are accounted for under GAAP using the equity method.

The Company also considers NOI and Total NOI to be a helpful supplemental measure of its operating performance because it excludes from NOI variable items such as termination fee income, as well as non-cash items such as straight-line rent and amortization of lease intangibles.

Forward-Looking Statements

This document contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements relate to expectations, beliefs, projections, future plans and strategies, anticipated events or trends and similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may," "should," "expects," "intends," "plans," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "predicts," or "potential" or the negative of these words and phrases or similar words or phrases that are predictions of or indicate future events or trends and that do not relate solely to historical matters. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and contingencies, many of which are beyond the Company’s control, which may cause actual results to differ significantly from those expressed in any forward-looking statement. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to: declines in retail, real estate and general economic conditions; the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the business of the Company’s tenants and business, income, cash flow, results of operations, financial condition, liquidity, prospects, ability to service the Company’s debt obligations and ability to pay dividends and other distributions to shareholders, the Company’s historical exposure to Sears Holdings and the effects of its previously announced bankruptcy filing; the litigation filed against us and other defendants in the Sears Holdings adversarial proceeding pending in bankruptcy court; risks relating to redevelopment activities; contingencies to the commencement of rent under leases; the terms of the Company’s indebtedness and other legal requirements to which the Company is subject; failure to achieve expected occupancy and/or rent levels within the projected time frame or at all; the impact of ongoing negative operating cash flow on the Company’s ability to fund operations and ongoing development; the Company’s ability to access or obtain sufficient sources of financing to fund the Company’s liquidity needs; the Company’s relatively limited history as an operating company; and environmental, health, safety and land use laws and regulations. For additional discussion of these and other applicable risks, assumptions and uncertainties, see the "Risk Factors" and forward-looking statement disclosure contained in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 and in Part II, Item 1A of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022. While the Company believes that its forecasts and assumptions are reasonable, the Company cautions that actual results may differ materially. The Company intends the forward-looking statements to speak only as of the time made and do not undertake to update or revise them as more information becomes available, except as required by law.
