Artis Real Estate Investment Trust (CNW Group/Artis Real Estate Investment Trust)

"This has been a transformational year for Artis. Since we announced our new vision and strategy last March, we've made significant progress in all aspects of our Business Transformation Plan", said Samir Manji, President and CEO of Artis. "The sale of $858.6 million of assets in 2021 was instrumental in providing us with the resources to meaningfully reduce debt and the financial flexibility to execute on our value-investing strategies, which are well under way. Our total debt to gross book value at the end of the year was 42.9%, a significant improvement from 49.3% and net asset value per unit, a key performance indicator for the REIT, increased to $17.37 from $15.03, both on a year-over-year basis. Other components of our strategy, including the allocation of capital to unit buybacks and to accretive development projects continue to be a priority for us and a benefit to our unitholders.  We're pleased with the progress we've made so far, but there is a significant amount of work still ahead.  We look forward to 2022 with strong conviction in our strategy and optimism for the opportunities that lie ahead."

PORTFOLIO ACTIVITY

Acquisitions

On January 26, 2021, Artis acquired an additional 5% interest in Park 8Ninety IV, an industrial property located in the Greater Houston Area, Texas. As a result of this acquisition, the REIT owns 100% of the property.

On May 7, 2021, the REIT acquired a parcel of industrial development land in Twin Cities Area, Minnesota for a purchase price of US$1.5 million.

On September 24, 2021, the REIT acquired a parcel of industrial development land in the Twin Cities Area, Minnesota, for a purchase price of US$2.2 million.

Dispositions

During 2021, Artis sold 29 industrial properties, six office properties, six retail properties as well as a portion of a retail property for an aggregate sale price of $858.6 million.  The sale proceeds, net of costs of $6.8 million, notes receivable of $16.0 million and related debt of $44.1 million, were $791.7 million

At December 31, 2021, the REIT had entered into an agreement to sell a portfolio comprising two office properties located in the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario, for a sale price of $35.5 million.  This disposition closed on January 20, 2022.

Subsequent to December 31, 2021, the REIT entered into an unconditional sale agreement for an industrial property located in the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario, for a sale price of $29.2 million.  The sale is anticipated to close in March 2022.

Condominium Sales

During 2021, Artis completed the conversion of 2145-2155 Dunwin Drive, an industrial property located in the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario, to commercial condominiums and sold 21 units for aggregate consideration of $17.9 million.

New Developments

At December 31, 2021, the REIT had three ongoing development projects: 300 Main, Blaine 35 I and Blaine 35 II.

300 Main is a mixed-used commercial and residential/multi-family property located in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  Blaine 35 is a two-phase industrial development project located in the Twin Cities Area, Minnesota, with prominent interstate frontage at the intersection of I-35W and 85th Ave N.  The first phase of the project, Blaine 35 I, consists of one building anticipated to total approximately 118,500 square feet of leasable area.  The second phase, Blaine 35 II, will comprise two buildings expected to total approximately 198,900 square feet of leasable area.

IMPACT OF COVID-19

As a diversified REIT, Artis' portfolio comprises industrial, office and retail properties which, at December 31, 2021, were 89.4% leased (91.5% including commitments on vacant space) to high-quality tenants across Canada and the U.S. with a weighted-average remaining lease term of 5.1 years.

Rent collection has been a key focus during this time.  As at December 31, 2021, 98.2% of rent charges (both excluding and including deferred rent charges) have been collected for the three months ended December 31, 2021.

Due to government-mandated capacity restrictions and temporary closures of certain non-essential businesses throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, a number of tenants had to limit operations.  To support tenants through this difficult time, qualifying tenants who were in need of assistance were given the option to defer a portion of their rent, with an agreement to repay the amount at a specified later date.  As at December 31, 2021, the outstanding balance of rent deferrals granted to tenants was $1.0 million, compared to $4.9 million at December 31, 2020.

The REIT anticipates that the majority of rent deferrals and rents receivable will be collected, however, there are certain tenants that may not be able to pay their outstanding rent.  As at December 31, 2021, an allowance for doubtful accounts in the amount of $1.7 million has been recorded, compared to $2.0 million at December 31, 2020.

Overall, Artis' first priority is to maintain a safe environment for its tenants, employees and the community.  During this unprecedented and uncertain time, Artis is committed to minimizing the impact on its business, and as a diversified REIT, Artis is confident that it is well-positioned to handle the economic challenges that may lie ahead.

NOTICE WITH RESPECT TO NON-GAAP & SUPPLEMENTARY FINANCIAL MEASURES DISCLOSURE

In addition to reported IFRS measures, certain non-GAAP and supplementary financial measures are commonly used by Canadian real estate investment trusts as an indicator of financial performance. "GAAP" means the generally accepted accounting principles described by the CPA Canada Handbook - Accounting, which are applicable as at the date on which any calculation using GAAP is to be made. Artis applies IFRS, which is the section of GAAP applicable to publicly accountable enterprises.

Non-GAAP measures and ratios include Same Property Net Operating Income ("Same Property NOI"), Funds From Operations ("FFO"), Adjusted Funds from Operations ("AFFO"), FFO per Unit, AFFO per Unit, FFO Payout Ratio, AFFO Payout Ratio, NAV per Unit, Total Debt to GBV, Adjusted EBITDA Interest Coverage Ratio and Total Debt to Adjusted EBITDA.

Supplementary financial measures includes unencumbered assets to unsecured debt.

Management believes that these measures are helpful to investors because they are widely recognized measures of Artis' performance and provide a relevant basis for comparison among real estate entities.

These non-GAAP and supplementary financial measures are not defined under IFRS and are not intended to represent financial performance, financial position or cash flows for the period, nor should any of these measures be viewed as an alternative to net income, cash flow from operations or other measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with IFRS.

The above measures are not standardized financial measures under the financial reporting framework used to prepare the financial statements of Artis.  Readers should be further cautioned that the above measures as calculated by Artis may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Refer to the Notice With Respect to Non-GAAP & Supplementary Financial Measures Disclosure of Artis' 2021 Annual MD&A, which is incorporated by reference herein, for further information (available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com or Artis' website at www.artisreit.com).
