DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2014 Results

Revenues increase 16%; Normalized FFO per share increases 40%

WASHINGTON, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. (NYSE: DFT) is reporting results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.  All per share results are reported on a fully diluted basis.

DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc.

Highlights

  • As of April 23, 2014, our operating portfolio was stabilized at 97% leased and commenced as measured by computer room square feet ("CRSF") and 95% leased and commenced as measured by critical load (in megawatts, or "MW").
  • Quarterly Highlights:
    • Normalized Funds from Operations ("Normalized FFO") of $0.59 per share representing a 40% increase over the prior year quarter.
    • Adjusted Funds from Operations ("AFFO") per share of $0.62 representing a 63% increase over the prior year quarter.
    • Executed one lease totaling 0.49 MW and 5,581 CRSF.
    • Commenced two leases totaling 0.92 MW and 8,381 CRSF.
  • Subsequent to the First Quarter 2014:
    •  Executed and commenced one lease totaling 2.60 MW and 27,952 CRSF. 

Hossein Fateh, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are pleased to announce that one of our original data center facilities, VA3, is now 95% leased, up from 71% leased at year-end. Strong customer demand throughout our portfolio is supporting expansion of our development pipeline. We expect to deliver Phase IIA of our Santa Clara facility (SC1) in May and are seeing adequate demand to begin Phase IIB with projected delivery in the first quarter of 2013. Our focus on leasing available inventory and pre-leasing development projects will fuel DFT's growth."

First Quarter 2014 Results

For the quarter ended March 31, 2014, earnings were $0.30 per share compared to earnings of $0.12 per share for the first quarter of 2013, an increase of 150%.  Revenues increased 16%, or $14.3 million, to $102.1 million for the first quarter of 2014 over the first quarter of 2013.  The increase in revenues is primarily due to new leases commencing. 

Normalized FFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 was $0.59 per share compared to $0.42 per share for the first quarter of 2013.  The increase of $0.17 per share, or 40%, from the prior year quarter is primarily due to the following:

  • Higher operating income excluding depreciation of $0.11 per share, and
  • Lower interest expense of $0.06 per share due to lower interest rates and higher capitalized interest.

Normalized FFO of $0.59 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 exceeded the upper end of our guidance range by $0.01 per share due to lower operating and general and administrative expenses.

Portfolio Update

During the first quarter 2014, we:

  • Executed and commenced one lease at VA3 for 3.1 years totaling 0.49 MW and 5,581 CRSF. 
  • In addition to the VA3 lease noted above, commenced one lease totaling 0.43 MW and 2,800 CRSF at CH1, which was a re-lease of space vacated by a customer on December 31, 2013.  There was no vacancy period between the lease termination and the commencement of the new lease. 

Year to date, we:

  • Signed two leases with a weighted average lease term of 4.9 years totaling 3.09 MW and 33,533 CRSF that are expected to generate approximately $2.8 million of annualized GAAP base rent revenue.
  • Extended the maturity of one lease at VA3 that was scheduled to expire in 2018 by 0.75 years. There was no impact to cash base rent, and GAAP base rent increased 1.2%.
  • Commenced three leases totaling 3.52 MW and 36,333 CRSF. 

Development Update

We are currently developing ACC7 Phase I (11.9 MW) and SC1 Phase IIA (9.1 MW).  Both of these developments are on time and on budget, with completion of ACC7 Phase I expected in June/July of this year and SC1 Phase IIA in May of this year.  SC1 Phase IIA is 50% pre-leased.

As previously announced during the quarter, we have converted to using reclaimed water instead of potable water at our four data centers with evaporative cooling plants on our Ashburn campus - ACC3, ACC4, ACC5 and ACC6. By using reclaimed water, we have significantly reduced our environmental impact by reducing our consumption of potable water and by using effluent water that would otherwise be discharged into the local waterways by the water authority. ACC7 Phase I will also use reclaimed water when it opens.

Second Quarter and Full Year 2014 Guidance

Our Normalized FFO guidance range is $0.59 to $0.60 per share for the second quarter of 2014.

Our 2014 FFO guidance range was increased to $2.32 to $2.40 per share as compared to prior guidance of $2.28 to $2.38 per share. The lower end of this range assumes no additional leases will be executed through the end of this calendar year. The assumptions underlying this guidance can be found on page 15 of this earnings release.

The $0.03 per share increase in the midpoint of guidance is primarily due to:

  • Lower interest expense of $0.02 per share which is primarily due to higher capitalized interest from the anticipated start of our SC1 Phase IIB development in the second quarter of 2014, and
  • Higher operating income excluding depreciation of $0.01 per share primarily from leases executed year to date.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

We have a common stock repurchase program that allows for purchases up to $122.2 million that expires on December 31, 2014.  In the first quarter of 2014, we did not repurchase any shares, and $122.2 million is still available for purchase.

As of March 31, 2014, we had $72 million of cash and $400 million of available capacity under our revolving credit facility.

Dividend

Our first quarter 2014 dividend of $0.35 per share was paid on April 15, 2014.  This quarterly rate represents a 40% increase from the fourth quarter 2013 dividend rate of $0.25 per share.  The anticipated 2014 annualized dividend of $1.40 per share represents an estimated Normalized FFO payout ratio of 59% at the midpoint of our current 2014 guidance.  For 2013, the Normalized FFO payout ratio was 48% and the AFFO payout ratio was 51%.

(1)  Funds from operations, or FFO, is used by industry analysts and investors as a supplemental operating performance measure for REITs. We calculate FFO in accordance with the definition that was adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT. FFO, as defined by NAREIT, represents net income determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding extraordinary items as defined under GAAP, impairment charges on depreciable real estate assets and gains or losses from sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets, plus specified non-cash items, such as real estate asset depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. We also present FFO attributable to common shares and OP units, which is FFO excluding preferred stock dividends. FFO attributable to common shares and OP units per share is calculated on a basis consistent with net income attributable to common shares and OP units and reflects adjustments to net income for preferred stock dividends.


We use 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 period over period, captures trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating expenses. We also believe that, as a widely recognized measure of the performance of equity REITs, FFO may be used by investors as a basis to compare our operating performance with that of other REITs. However, because FFO excludes real estate related 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 leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties, all of which have real economic effects and could materially impact our results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of our performance is limited.


While FFO is a relevant and widely used measure of operating performance of equity REITs, other equity REITs may use different methodologies for calculating FFO and, accordingly, FFO as disclosed by such other REITs may not be comparable to our FFO. Therefore, we believe that in order to facilitate a clear understanding of our historical operating results, FFO should be examined in conjunction with net income as presented in the consolidated statements of operations. FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income or to cash flow from operating activities (each as computed in accordance with GAAP) or as an indicator of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to meet our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions.


We present FFO with adjustments to arrive at Normalized FFO.  Normalized FFO is FFO attributable to common shares and units excluding gain or loss on early extinguishment of debt and gain or loss on derivative instruments.   We also present FFO with supplemental adjustments to arrive at Adjusted FFO ("AFFO"). AFFO is Normalized FFO excluding straight-line revenue, compensation paid with Company common shares, below market lease amortization net of above market lease amortization, non real estate depreciation and amortization, amortization of deferred financing costs, improvements to real estate and capitalized leasing commissions.  AFFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and therefore should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indicator of our operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow provided by operations as a measure of liquidity and is not necessarily indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs including our ability to pay dividends. In addition, AFFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measurements employed by other companies. We use AFFO in management reports to provide a measure of REIT operating performance that can be compared to other companies using AFFO.

(1)

Stabilized operating properties are either 85% or more leased and commenced or have been in service for 24 months or greater.

(2)

Gross building area is the entire building area, including CRSF (the portion of gross building area where our customers' computer servers are located), common areas, areas controlled by us (such as the mechanical, telecommunications and utility rooms) and, in some facilities, individual office and storage space leased on an as available basis to our customers.

(3)

Percentage leased is expressed as a percentage of CRSF or critical load, as applicable, that is subject to an executed lease. Leases executed as of April 1, 2014 represent $275 million of base rent on a GAAP basis and $288 million of base rent on a cash basis over the next twelve months.
