TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2017 /CNW/ - CT Real Estate Investment Trust (CT REIT) (TSX: CRT.UN) today reported its consolidated financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016.

Financial Highlights

Net Income – Net income was $65.5 million for the quarter, up 4.2% over the prior year, primarily due to increased NOI due to acquisitions and a decrease in net interest and financing charges, partially offset by a decrease in the fair market value adjustment on investment properties. For the full year, net income was $259.1 million, up 10.5% over the prior year primarily due to increased NOI, mainly relating to acquisitions, an increase to the fair market value adjustment on investment properties and a reduction in net interest and financing charges, partially offset by an increase in general and administrative expenses. 

Net Operating Income (NOI)* –  In the fourth quarter, NOI increased $5.5 million or 8.1% over the same period last year primarily due to acquisitions and development projects completed in 2016 and 2015. These acquisitions contributed a total of $4.3 million to NOI growth. Same store NOI and same property NOI for the quarter increased $1.2 million or 1.8% and $1.3 million or 1.9%, respectively, primarily due to the contractual rent escalations built into the property leases, recovery of capital expenditures, intensifications completed in 2016 and 2015, partially offset by a decrease in the net recovery of operating expenses and property taxes. NOI for the full year amounted to $287.1 million.

Funds from Operations (FFO)* – FFO for the quarter was $56.8 million or $0.274 per unit (diluted non-GAAP), $6.7 million higher than the same period in 2015 and largely due to the impact of NOI variances and higher interest capitalization. FFO for the year ended was $214.9 million or $1.071 per unit (diluted non-GAAP) and $20.2 million higher than the same period in 2015 largely due to the impact of NOI variances and higher interest capitalization partially offset by an increase in general and administrative expenses.

Adjusted Funds from Operations (AFFO)* – AFFO for the fourth quarter and full year amounted to $46.0 million or $0.222 per unit (diluted non-GAAP) and $172.8 million or $0.862 per unit (diluted non-GAAP) respectively, representing a year over year growth per unit (diluted non-GAAP) of 6.7%. For the three months and year ended December 31, 2016, AFFO was $7.0 million (18.0%) and $21.1 million (13.9%) higher than the same period in 2015 largely due to the impact of NOI variances and higher interest capitalization partially offset by general and administrative expenses.

Distributions – Distributions per unit in the quarter amounted to $0.170, 2.6% higher than the same period in 2015 due to the increase in the annual rate of distributions effective with the first distribution paid in 2016. For the full year, distributions per unit amounted to $0.680, 2.6% higher than the same period in 2015.

On January 13, 2017, CT REIT paid an increased monthly distribution of $0.05833 per unit reflecting the previously announced 3.0% increase in the annualized distributions to $0.70 per unit, from the previous monthly distribution of $0.05667 per unit.

*NOI, FFO and AFFO are non-GAAP measures. Refer to Non-GAAP section in the Q4 and Year End 2016 Management's Discussion & Analysis, which is available on SEDAR and at newswire.ca.

Operating Results

Leasing – CTC is CT REIT's largest tenant. At December 31, 2016, CTC represented 94.2% of total GLA and 93.8% of annualized base minimum rent.
