AVALONBAY COMMUNITIES, INC. (NYSE: AVB) (the “Company”) announced today that Benjamin W. Schall, the Company’s CEO and President, and select members of the Company’s management team will be participating in a roundtable discussion at the 2024 Citi Global Property CEO Conference on Monday, March 4, 2024, at 11:00 A.M. Eastern Time. During this event, management may discuss the Company's current operating environment and trends; development, redevelopment, disposition and acquisition activity; portfolio strategy and other business and financial matters affecting the Company.

The roundtable discussion will be webcast live and can be accessed on the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website at www.avalonbay.com . Following the live event, a replay of the webcast will be available on the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website.

The Company also provided the following Same Store Residential operating information:

  • Revenue for the three months ending March 31, 2024 is expected to increase between 3.7% and 3.8% over the prior year period. The midpoint of this range is approximately 45 basis points above what the Company’s expectation was for revenue growth for this three-month period when the Company published its outlook for full year 2024 revenue growth on January 31, 2024. This projected outperformance is primarily attributable to better-than-expected occupancy and lower-than-expected uncollectible lease revenue.

Definitions

Economic Occupancy is defined as total possible Residential revenue less vacancy loss as a percentage of total possible Residential revenue. Total possible Residential revenue (also known as “gross potential”) is determined by valuing occupied units at contract rates and vacant units at Market Rents. Vacancy loss is determined by valuing vacant units at current Market Rents. By measuring vacant apartments at their Market Rents, Economic Occupancy takes into account the fact that apartment homes of different sizes and locations within a community have different economic impacts on a community’s gross revenue.

Like-Term Effective Rent Change for an individual apartment home represents the percentage change in effective rent between two leases of the same lease term category for the same apartment. The Company defines effective rent as the contractual rent for an apartment less amortized concessions and discounts. Like-Term Effective Rent Change with respect to multiple apartment homes represents an average. New Move-In Like-Term Effective Rent Change is the change in effective rent between the contractual rent for a resident who moves out of an apartment, and the contractual rent for a resident who moves into the same apartment with the same lease term category. Renewal Like-Term Effective Rent Change is the change in effective rent between two consecutive leases of the same lease term category for the same resident occupying the same apartment.

Market Rents as reported by the Company are based on the current market rates set by the Company based on its experience in renting apartments and publicly available market data. Market Rents for a period are based on the average Market Rents during that period and do not reflect any impact for cash concessions.

Other Expansion Regions include markets located in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Dallas, Texas.

Renewal Offers generally represent initial offers made to market rate apartments with expiring leases for which the residents have not provided notice of their intent to vacate.

Residential represents results attributable to the Company's apartment rental operations, including parking and other ancillary Residential revenue.

Same Store is composed of consolidated communities where a comparison of operating results from the prior year to the current year is meaningful as these communities were owned and had Stabilized Operations, as defined below, as of the beginning of the respective prior year period. Therefore, for 2024 operating results, Same Store is composed of consolidated communities that have Stabilized Operations as of January 1, 2023, are not conducting or are not probable to conduct substantial redevelopment activities and are not held for sale or probable for disposition within the current year.

Stabilized Operations is defined as operations of a community that occur after the earlier of (i) attainment of 90% physical occupancy or (ii) the one-year anniversary of completion of development or redevelopment.
