JERICHO, N.Y., May 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kimco Realty® (NYSE: KIM), a real estate investment trust (REIT) and leading owner and operator of high-quality, open-air, grocery-anchored shopping centers and mixed-use properties in the United States, today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024. For the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, Kimco Realty’s net (loss)/income available to the company’s common shareholders per diluted share was ($0.03) and $0.46, respectively.

First Quarter Highlights

  • Produced Funds From Operations* (FFO) of $0.39 per diluted share.
  • Generated 3.9% growth in Same Property Net Operating Income* (NOI) over the same period a year ago.
  • Achieved pro-rata portfolio occupancy of 96.0% with pro-rata anchor and small shop occupancy at 97.8% and 91.5%, respectively.
  • Leased 4.0 million square feet, generating blended pro-rata rent spreads on comparable spaces, including renewals and options, of 10.2%.
  • Generated pro-rata cash rent spreads of 35.5% for new leases on comparable spaces, including two former Bed Bath & Beyond leases with a blended, pro-rata rent increase of 36%.
  • Completed the $2.3 billion acquisition of RPT Realty (“RPT”) on January 2, 2024.
  • Disposed of ten former RPT properties for an aggregate price of $248 million, which resulted in the company achieving its 2024 disposition target for former RPT properties.

"Our first quarter results surpassed our initial expectations and showcase the robust demand that continues to permeate our open-air, grocery-anchored shopping center portfolio, supported by the exceptional performance of our dedicated team of associates," stated Conor Flynn, CEO of Kimco. "We are thrilled with the successful acquisition of RPT and the swift divestment of ten former properties that did not align with our long-term ownership strategy. Additionally, we achieved four million square feet of leasing with double-digit rent spreads and strong growth in same property NOI. As a result, we are excited to capitalize on this momentum and update our full-year outlook, as we remain committed to maximizing shareholder value.”

*Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure are provided in the tables accompanying this press release.

Financial Results

The company reported a net loss available to common shareholders of ($18.9) million, or ($0.03) per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2024. This compares to net income available to common shareholders (“Net income”) of $283.5 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2023. The year-over-year change is primarily attributable to:

  • $194.1 million one-time special dividend received from Albertsons Companies, Inc. (NYSE: ACI) in the first quarter of 2023 that did not reoccur in 2024.
  • $41.2 million increase in provision for income taxes, mainly due to tax gains associated with the sale of ACI common stock during 2024 and 2023.
  • $40.4 million less gains on sales of properties, net of impairments in 2024.
  • $25.2 million in merger charges related to the acquisition of RPT.
  • Other notable year-over-year changes, which were mainly attributable to the acquisition of RPT, include $60.6 million growth in consolidated revenues from rental properties, partially offset by increases of $5.9 million in real estate taxes and $10.5 million in operating and maintenance expenses as well as $28.4 million in higher depreciation and amortization.

FFO was $261.8 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2024 and includes RPT-related merger charges of $25.2 million, or $0.04 per diluted share. FFO was $238.1 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2023. The company excludes from FFO all realized or unrealized marketable securities gains and losses as well as gains and losses from the sales of certain real estate assets, depreciation and amortization related to real estate, profit participations from other investments, and other items considered incidental to the company’s business.

Operating Results

  • Signed 583 leases totaling 4.0 million square feet, generating blended pro-rata rent spreads on comparable spaces of 10.2%, with pro-rata cash rent spreads for new leases up 35.5% and renewals and options growing 7.8%.  
  • Pro-rata portfolio occupancy ended the quarter at 96.0%, an increase of 20 basis points year-over-year and down 20 basis points sequentially. The acquisition of RPT and the vacating of four Rite Aid leases reduced occupancy by 14 basis points and 10 basis points, respectively.
  • Pro-rata small shop occupancy ended the quarter at 91.5%, an increase of 80 basis points year-over-year while down 20 basis points sequentially. The acquisition of RPT resulted in a 40-basis-point reduction in small shop occupancy, representing additional potential for leasing upside.
  • Reported a 330-basis-point spread between leased (reported) occupancy versus economic occupancy at the end of the first quarter, representing approximately $63 million in anticipated future annual base rent.
  • Generated 3.9% growth in Same Property NOI over the same period a year ago, primarily driven by a 2.8% increase in minimum rent.

Investment & Disposition Activities

  • Disposed of ten former RPT properties for an aggregate price of $248 million, which totaled 2.1 million square feet of gross leasable area, as previously announced. As part of these sales, Kimco Realty opportunistically invested approximately $67 million in eight of these properties under its Structured Investment program. The company expects to earn a 10% blended return on these investments.
  • Completed a $9.0 million structured investment in a shopping center owned by a third party, as previously announced.

Capital Market Activities

  • Repaid unsecured notes in the principal amount of $246.9 million at 4.45% and $400.0 million at 2.70% during the first quarter. The company has no remaining unsecured debt and only $11.8 million of secured debt maturing for the remainder of 2024.
  • Sold remaining 14.2 million shares of ACI common stock at a net price of $21.05 per share, resulting in $299.1 million of net proceeds, as previously announced. The company recorded a provision for income taxes of $71.8 million on the taxable gain from the sale of the shares during the first quarter.
  • The company ended the quarter with $2.0 billion of immediate liquidity, including $1.9 billion available on its $2.0 billion unsecured revolving credit facility and over $135 million of cash and cash equivalents.

Dividend Declarations

  • Kimco Realty’s board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend on common shares of $0.24 per share, payable on June 20, 2024, to shareholders of record on June 6, 2024.
  • The board of directors also declared quarterly dividends with respect to each of the company’s Class L, Class M, and Class N series of preferred shares. These dividends on the preferred shares will be paid on July 15, 2024, to shareholders of record on July 1, 2024.

(1)The company considers FFO to be an important supplemental measure of its operating performance and believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting results. Comparison of the company's presentation of FFO to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in the application of the Nareit definition used by such REITs. 
(2)Related to gains, impairments, depreciation on properties, gains/(losses) on sales of marketable securities and derivatives, where applicable. 
(3)Reflects the potential impact of convertible preferred shares and certain units were converted to common stock at the beginning of the period. FFO available to the company’s common shareholders would be increased by $2,443 and $584 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. The effect of other certain convertible securities would have an anti-dilutive effect upon the calculation of FFO available to the company’s common shareholders per share. Accordingly, the impact of such conversion has not been included in the determination of diluted FFO per share calculations. 
(4)Includes merger-related charges of $25.2 million ($0.04 per share on a diluted basis) for the three months March 31, 2024.

Same Property NOI
 $381,273  $367,108 
(1)The company considers Same Property NOI as an important operating performance measure because it is frequently used by securities analysts and investors to measure only the net operating income of properties that have been owned by the company for the entire current and prior year reporting periods. It excludes properties under redevelopment, development and pending stabilization; properties are deemed stabilized at the earlier of (i) reaching 90% leased or (ii) one year following a project’s inclusion in operating real estate. Same Property NOI assists in eliminating disparities in net income due to the development, acquisition or disposition of properties during the particular period presented, and thus provides a more consistent performance measure for the comparison of the company's properties. The company’s method of calculating Same Property NOI may differ from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs.
(2)Amounts represent Kimco Realty's pro-rata share.
(3)Amounts for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and March 31, 2023, represent the Same property NOI from RPT properties, not included in the Company's Net (loss)/income available to the Company's common shareholders.

Not all of these factors are determinable at this time and actual results may vary from the projected results, and may be above or below the range indicated. The above range represents management’s estimate of results based upon these assumptions as of the date of this press release.
