JACKSON, Miss. , April 23, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- EastGroup Properties, Inc. (NYSE: EGP) (the "Company", "we", "us" or "EastGroup") announced today the results of its operations for the three months ended March 31, 2024.

Commenting on EastGroup's performance, Marshall Loeb , CEO, stated, "Our strong performance continues as evidenced by FFO per share rising 8.8% for the quarter excluding an involuntary conversion in first quarter 2023. The industrial market remained resilient, producing a number of other strong metrics, such as our percent leased, same store net operating income growth, and quarterly releasing spreads. The continued economic uncertainty is creating several outcomes, such as longer leasing deliberations among our customers and multiple consecutive quarters of significantly declining market construction starts. Long term, I remain bullish on the continuing external secular trends which benefit our shallow bay, last mile Sunbelt market portfolio."

EARNINGS PER SHARE

Three Months Ended March 31, 2024
On a diluted per share basis, earnings per common share ("EPS") were $1.22 for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to $1.02 for the same period of 2023. The increase in EPS was primarily due to the following:

  • The Company's property net operating income ("PNOI") increased by $13,293,000 ( $0.28 per share) for the three months ended March 31, 2024 , as compared to the same period of 2023.
  • EastGroup recognized gains on sales of real estate investments of $8,751,000 ( $0.18 per share) during the three months ended March 31, 2024 , compared to $4,809,000 ( $0.11 per share) during the three months ended March 31, 2023 .
  • Interest expense decreased by $2,964,000 ( $0.06 per share) during the three months ended March 31, 2024 , as compared to the same period of 2023.

The increase in EPS was partially offset by the following:

  • Depreciation and amortization expense increased by $4,155,000 ( $0.09 per share) during the three months ended March 31, 2024 , as compared to the same period of 2023.
  • Weighted average shares increased by 4,138,000 on a diluted basis during the three months ended March 31, 2024 , as compared to the same period of 2023.

PNOI increased by $13,293,000 , or 13.6%, during the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to the same period of 2023.

Same PNOI Excluding Income from Lease Terminations increased 4.9% on a straight-line basis for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to the same period of 2023; on a cash basis (excluding straight-line rent adjustments and amortization of above/below market rent intangibles), Same PNOI increased 7.7%.

On a straight-line basis, rental rates on new and renewal leases (representing 3.6% of our total square footage) increased an average of 57.8% during the three months ended March 31, 2024.

The same property pool for the three months ended March 31, 2024 includes properties which were included in the operating portfolio for the entire period from January 1, 2023 through March 31, 2024; this pool is comprised of properties containing 51,668,000 square feet.

ACQUISITIONS AND DISPOSITIONS

In January 2024 , EastGroup acquired Spanish Ridge Industrial Park, which consists of three recently developed business distribution buildings totaling 231,000 square feet, for $54,859,000 . The buildings are located in the Southwest submarket of Las Vegas and are 100% leased. This acquisition increased the Company's ownership in Las Vegas to approximately 1,395,000 square feet, which is currently 95.3% leased.

Also in January, the Company acquired Brightstar Land, a 34.3 acre parcel of development land in the I-20 West submarket of Atlanta for $3,302,000 . This site will accommodate the planned future development of two buildings containing approximately 315,000 square feet.

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, EastGroup sold a portfolio of properties in the Jackson, MS market in an effort to recycle capital into higher performing markets. The properties total 159,000 square feet and were sold for $14,050,000 resulting in gains of $8,751,000 . These gains are included in Gain on sales of real estate investments and are excluded from FFO.

Also, during March 2024 , the Company sold a small parcel of land in San Francisco , which was obtained during the acquisition of Tulloch Corporation during 2022 and is located in a submarket which is not a target location for EastGroup. The 3.9 acre parcel was sold for $4,000,000 . A gain of $222,000 was generated, which is included in Other on the Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income and is excluded from FFO.

EastGroup has entered into an agreement to purchase a 275,000 square foot newly constructed industrial property in Raleigh for approximately $54,000,000 . This property, which is 100% leased, represents the Company's entry into the Raleigh-Durham market, which has been a target market for EastGroup for several years.

DEVELOPMENT AND VALUE-ADD PROPERTIES

During the first quarter of 2024, EastGroup began construction of two new development projects in San Antonio and Tampa , which will contain a total of 388,000 square feet and have projected total costs of $52,100,000 .

DIVIDENDS

EastGroup declared a cash dividend of $1.27 per share in the first quarter of 2024. The first quarter dividend, which was paid on April 15, 2024 , was the Company's 177th consecutive quarterly cash distribution to shareholders.  The Company has increased or maintained its dividend for 31 consecutive years and has increased it 28 years over that period, including increases in each of the last 12 years.  The annualized dividend rate of $5.08 per share yielded 3.1% on the closing stock price of $163.34 on April 22, 2024.

FINANCIAL STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY

EastGroup continues to maintain a strong and flexible balance sheet.  Debt-to-total market capitalization was 16.3% at March 31, 2024.  The Company's interest and fixed charge coverage ratio was 10.43x for the three months ended March 31, 2024. The Company's ratio of debt to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization for real estate ("EBITDAre") was 3.99x for the three months ended March 31, 2024. EBITDAre and the Company's interest and fixed charge coverage ratio are non-GAAP financial measures defined under Definitions later in this release. Refer to the schedule "Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures" attached for the calculation of the Company's interest and fixed charge coverage ratio, the debt to EBITDAre ratio, and the reconciliation of Net Income to EBITDAre.

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company entered into forward equity sales agreements with respect to 286,671 shares of common stock with an initial weighted average forward price of $181.95 per share. The Company did not receive any proceeds from the sale of common shares by the forward purchasers at the time it entered into forward equity sale agreements.

During the first quarter, EastGroup settled outstanding forward equity sale agreements that were previously entered into under its continuous common equity offering program by issuing 272,342 shares of common stock in exchange for net proceeds of approximately $49,294,000 . Subsequent to quarter-end, the Company settled additional outstanding forward equity sale agreements by issuing 133,699 shares of common stock in exchange for approximate net proceeds of $24,496,000 .

As of April 22, 2024 , EastGroup has 286,671 shares of common stock available for settlement prior to the expiration of the applicable settlement period, ranging from February 2025 through April 2025 , for approximate net proceeds of $51,600,000 , based on a weighted average forward price of $180.00 per share.

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company only utilized the forward component of its continuous common equity program as noted above, and did not sell any shares of its common stock directly through sales agents.

OUTLOOK FOR 2024

We estimate EPS for 2024 to be in the range of $4.45 to $4.65 and FFO per share attributable to common stockholders for 2024 to be in the range of $8.17 to $8.37 . The table below reconciles projected net income attributable to common stockholders to projected FFO. The Company is providing a projection of estimated net income attributable to common stockholders solely to satisfy the disclosure requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

EastGroup's projections are based on management's current beliefs and assumptions about our business, the industry and the markets in which we operate; there are known and unknown risks and uncertainties associated with these projections.

DEFINITIONS

The Company's chief decision makers use two primary measures of operating results in making decisions: (1) funds from operations attributable to common stockholders ("FFO"), including FFO as adjusted as described below, and (2) property net operating income ("PNOI"), as defined below.

FFO is computed in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. ("Nareit").  Nareit's guidance allows preparers an option as it pertains to whether gains or losses on sale, or impairment charges, on real estate assets incidental to a real estate investment trust's ("REIT's") business are excluded from the calculation of FFO. EastGroup has made the election to exclude activity related to such assets that are incidental to our business. FFO is calculated as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), excluding gains and losses from sales of real estate property (including other assets incidental to the Company's business) and impairment losses, adjusted for real estate related depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

FFO Excluding Gain on Involuntary Conversion and Business Interruption Claims is calculated as FFO (as defined above), adjusted to exclude gains on involuntary conversion and business interruption claims. The Company believes that this exclusion presents a more meaningful comparison of operating performance across periods.

PNOI is defined as Income from real estate operations less Expenses from real estate operations (including market-based internal management fee expense) plus the Company's share of income and property operating expenses from its less-than-wholly-owned real estate investments. EastGroup sometimes refers to PNOI from Same Properties as "Same PNOI" in this press release and the accompanying reconciliation; the Company also presents Same PNOI Excluding Income from Lease Terminations. The Company presents Same PNOI and Same PNOI Excluding Income from Lease Terminations as a property-level supplemental measure of performance used to evaluate the performance of the Company's investments in real estate assets and its operating results on a same property basis. The Company believes it is useful to evaluate Same PNOI Excluding Income from Lease Terminations on both a straight-line and cash basis. The straight-line basis is calculated by averaging the customers' rent payments over the lives of the leases; GAAP requires the recognition of rental income on a straight-line basis. The cash basis excludes adjustments for straight-line rent and amortization of market rent intangibles for acquired leases; cash basis is an indicator of the rents charged to customers by the Company during the periods presented and is useful in analyzing the embedded rent growth in the Company's portfolio. "Same Properties" is defined as operating properties owned during the entire current period and prior year reporting period. Operating properties are stabilized real estate properties (land including building and improvements) that make up the Company's operating portfolio. Properties developed or acquired are excluded from the same property pool until held in the operating portfolio for both the current and prior year reporting periods. Properties sold during the current or prior year reporting periods are also excluded.

FFO and PNOI are supplemental industry reporting measurements used to evaluate the performance of the Company's investments in real estate assets and its operating results. The Company believes that the exclusion of depreciation and amortization in the industry's calculations of PNOI and FFO provides supplemental indicators of the properties' performance since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions.  PNOI and FFO as calculated by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled but differently calculated measures for other REITs.  Investors should be aware that items excluded from or added back to FFO are significant components in understanding and assessing the Company's financial performance.

The Company's chief decision makers also use Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization for Real Estate ("EBITDAre") in making decisions. EBITDAre is computed in accordance with standards established by Nareit and defined as Net Income, adjusted for gains and losses from sales of real estate investments, non-operating real estate and other assets incidental to the Company's business, interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization. EBITDAre is a non-GAAP financial measure used to measure the Company's operating performance and its ability to meet interest payment obligations and pay quarterly stock dividends on an unleveraged basis.

EastGroup's chief decision makers also use its Debt-to-EBITDAre ratio, a non-GAAP financial measure calculated by dividing the Company's debt by its EBITDAre, in analyzing the financial condition and operating performance of the Company relative to its leverage.

The Company's interest and fixed charge coverage ratio is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated by dividing the Company's EBITDAre by its interest expense. We believe this ratio is useful to investors because it provides a basis for analysis of the Company's leverage, operating performance and its ability to service the interest payments due on its debt.
