Quarterly and Subsequent Highlights
- Reported fourth-quarter funds from operations (“FFO”) of $0.49 per diluted share and unit, representing a 16.7% increase year over year
- Reported fourth-quarter operating revenue of $61.4 million, representing an 11.2% increase year over year
- Executed new and expansion data center leases representing $3.5 million of annualized GAAP rent at a rate of $132 of annualized GAAP rent per square foot
- Realized rent growth on signed renewals of 3.5% on a cash basis and 14.3% on a GAAP basis and rental churn of 1.9%
- Increased quarterly dividend by 30% to $0.35 per share; annual rate of $1.40 per share
- Entered into a new $100 million, five-year, senior unsecured term loan, and subsequently retired the approximately $58 million loan secured by its SV1 facility
Tom Ray, CoreSite’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “In the fourth quarter we continued to see the financial results driven by execution upon our plan to sell an attractive product mix to customers benefitting from our strong foundation in the network and cloud verticals,” Mr. Ray continued, “We also delivered the first computer room of turn-key data center capacity at NY2 in Secaucus, New Jersey, in December, and are pleased with sales activity surrounding the investment. In addition, we delivered the build-to-suit at SV5 and look forward to completing construction on our VA2 development in Northern Virginia toward the second half of the year. 2014 represents a year of strong opportunity for CoreSite to leverage our network-dense, cloud-enabled data centers with excellence in customer service. Our primary focus for the balance of 2014 centers around increasing the productivity of our existing sales and marketing resources to sell available and pipeline capacity and deliver attractive returns on capital.”
CoreSite reported FFO attributable to shares and units of $23.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, a 17.2% increase year over year and an increase of 5.6% quarter over quarter. On a per diluted share and unit basis, FFO increased 16.7% to $0.49 for the three months ended December 31, 2013, as compared to $0.42 per diluted share and unit for the three months ended December 31, 2012. Total operating revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2013, was $61.4 million, an 11.2% increase year over year. Revenue growth in the fourth quarter was diluted by 1.8% due to CoreSite’s customer at SV3 decreasing its metered power draw as it transitions out of that facility. CoreSite reported net income attributable to common shares of $3.1 million, or $0.15 per diluted share.
CoreSite executed 122 new and expansion data center leases, representing $3.5 million of annualized GAAP rent during the fourth quarter, comprised of 26,276 NRSF at a weighted average GAAP rate of $132 per NRSF.
CoreSite’s renewal leases signed in the fourth quarter totaled $6.8 million in annualized GAAP rent, comprised of 50,513 NRSF at a weighted average GAAP rate of $135 per NRSF. These results reflect a 3.5% increase in rent on a cash basis and a 14.3% increase on a GAAP basis. The fourth-quarter rental churn rate was 1.9%.
CoreSite’s fourth-quarter data center lease commencements totaled 116,052 NRSF at a weighted average GAAP rental rate of $41 per NRSF, which represents $4.8 million of annualized GAAP rent. These results include a 101,721 NRSF build-to-suit powered shell lease for a valued and strategic customer at the Santa Clara Campus. Excluding this lease, commencements totaled 14,331 at a weighted average GAAP rental rate of $116 per NRSF.
In the fourth quarter, CoreSite completed and delivered the build-to-suit powered shell building at SV5 on its Santa Clara campus. Also during the quarter, the company placed into service the first computer room at the new NY2 data center in Secaucus, New Jersey, representing an incremental 18,103 NRSF of TKD capacity.
As of December 31, 2013, CoreSite had 118,300 NRSF of data center space under construction at three locations. The projects under construction include a new data center at VA2 (Northern Virginia), adjacent to VA1, and additional inventory at NY2 (New York market) and LA2 (Los Angeles). As of December 31, 2013, CoreSite had incurred $117.9 million of the estimated $170.4 million required to complete these projects.
Balance Sheet and Liquidity
As of December 31, 2013, CoreSite had $232.5 million of total long-term debt equal to 2.1x annualized adjusted EBITDA and $347.5 million of long-term debt and preferred stock equal to 3.1x annualized adjusted EBITDA.
As of December 31, 2013, CoreSite had $174.3 million drawn on the credit facility and approximately $222.4 million of available capacity under the facility.
At quarter end, CoreSite had $5.3 million of cash available on its balance sheet. On January 31, 2014, CoreSite entered into a new $100 million, five-year, senior unsecured term loan. The term loan has an accordion feature, which would allow CoreSite to increase the total commitments by $100 million, to $200 million, under specified circumstances. CoreSite used the capacity under the term loan to retire the $58 million mortgage on its SV1 facility and pay down a portion of the outstanding balance on its revolving credit facility.
On December 6, 2013, CoreSite announced a 30% increase in its quarterly dividend to $0.35 per share of common stock and common stock equivalents for the fourth quarter of 2013. The dividend was paid on January 15, 2014, to shareholders of record on December 31, 2013.
CoreSite also announced on December 6, 2013, a dividend of $0.4531 per share of Series A preferred stock for the period October 15, 2013, to January 14, 2014. The preferred dividend was paid on January 15, 2014, to shareholders of record on December 31, 2013.
CoreSite is introducing its 2014 guidance of FFO per diluted share and unit in the range of $2.00 to $2.10. More detail regarding the assumptions behind the 2014 annual guidance can be found on page 21 of the earnings supplemental.
In addition, the company’s estimate of the net income attributable to common shares is $0.50 to $0.60 per diluted share, with the difference between FFO and net income being real estate depreciation and amortization.
This outlook is predicated on current economic conditions, internal assumptions about CoreSite’s customer base, and the supply and demand dynamics of the markets in which CoreSite operates. The guidance does not include the impact of any future financing, investment or disposition activities, beyond what has already been disclosed.
Upcoming Conferences and Events
CoreSite will participate in Citi’s 2014 Global Property CEO Conference on March 3, 2014, at The Westin Diplomat in Hollywood, Florida.

|FFO per common share and OP unit - diluted||$||0.49||$||0.47||$||0.42||$||1.82||$||1.55|
Funds From Operations “FFO” is a supplemental measure of our performance which should be considered along with, but not as an alternative to, net income and cash provided by operating activities as a measure of operating performance and liquidity. We calculate FFO in accordance with the standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”). FFO represents net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property and impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs) and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. FFO attributable to common shares and units represents FFO less preferred stock dividends declared during the period.
Our management uses FFO as a supplemental performance measure because, in excluding real estate related depreciation and amortization and gains and losses from property dispositions, it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, captures trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs.
We offer this measure because we recognize that FFO will be used by investors as a basis to compare our operating performance with that of other REITs. However, because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization and captures neither the changes in the value of our properties that result from use or market conditions, nor the level of capital expenditures and capitalized leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties, all of which have real economic effect and could materially impact our financial condition and results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of our performance is limited. FFO is a non-GAAP measure and should not be considered a measure of liquidity, an alternative to net income, cash provided by operating activities or any other performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions. In addition, our calculations of FFO are not necessarily comparable to FFO as calculated by other REITs that do not use the same definition or implementation guidelines or interpret the standards differently from us. Investors in our securities should not rely on these measures as a substitute for any GAAP measure, including net income.
|Reconciliation of Net Income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA:|
|Three Months Ended||Year Ended|
|Interest expense, net of interest income||745||694||1,313||2,657||5,223|
|Depreciation and amortization||17,151||16,424||16,336||65,785||64,327|
|Transaction costs / litigation||-||25||328||529||2,354|
EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We calculate adjusted EBITDA by adding our non-cash compensation expense, transaction costs and litigation expense to EBITDA as well as adjusting for the impact of gains or losses on early extinguishment of debt. Management uses EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA as indicators of our ability to incur and service debt. In addition, we consider EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to be appropriate supplemental measures of our performance because they eliminate depreciation and interest, which permits investors to view income from operations without the impact of non-cash depreciation or the cost of debt. However, because EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are calculated before recurring cash charges including interest expense and taxes, and are not adjusted for capital expenditures or other recurring cash requirements of our business, their utilization as a cash flow measurement is limited.
