Management Commentary

“The PECO team continues to successfully execute on our growth strategy through acquisitions and strong income growth at our properties,” stated Jeff Edison, chairman and chief executive officer of PECO. “We delivered excellent operational results with same-center NOI growth of 4.3%, combined new and renewal leasing spreads of 20.1%, and record occupancy of 96.8% at the end of the quarter. We are excited about the acquisition of Centennial Lakes, in Minneapolis, MN, a Whole Foods-anchored neighborhood center. Our strong performance and well-positioned balance sheet provide us with the momentum and flexibility to continue to successfully grow our business no matter the macroeconomic environment ahead.”

“Given our accomplishments this quarter, we are raising our guidance for Net Income, Core FFO, and same-center NOI. The PECO team and the strength of our Neighbors continue to drive operating performance beyond our internal expectations. Due to the uncertainty in the capital markets environment, we are updating our 2022 acquisition guidance. As interest costs and inflation headwinds impact the transaction market, we remain cautious with our capital allocation decisions including the timing and volume of our acquisitions to ensure we are acquiring assets that are accretive to financial results and meet our return expectations.”

Financial Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2022

Net Income

Second quarter 2022 net income attributable to stockholders totaled $13.5 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share during the second quarter of 2021.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, net income attributable to stockholders totaled $23.6 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.7 million, or $0.06 per diluted share for the same period in 2021.

Nareit FFO

Second quarter 2022 funds from operations attributable to stockholders and operating partnership (“OP”) unit holders as defined by Nareit (“Nareit FFO”) increased 18.8% to $71.1 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, from $59.9 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, during the second quarter of 2021.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, Nareit FFO increased 31.8% to $138.2 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, from $104.9 million, or $0.98 per diluted share, during the same period in 2021.

The $11.2 million increase for the second quarter of 2022 was driven by an increase in rental income, realizing $2.5 million of performance income for achieving return hurdles in the Necessity Retail Partners (“NRP”) joint venture, and reduced interest expense due to our lower leverage from a year ago. These amounts were partially offset by higher transaction and acquisition costs in the second quarter of 2022. The decrease in the per diluted share metric was primarily due to an increase in the share count of 18% as a result of PECO’s July 2021 underwritten IPO.

The $33.3 million increase for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was driven by an increase in rental income and reduced interest expense, partially offset by higher transaction and acquisition costs in the current year. Results were additionally driven by $2.7 million of performance income from the NRP joint venture, as well as a reduction in non-cash expense as a result of the final settlement of the earn-out liability with the issuance of 1.6 million OP units in January 2022.

Core FFO

Second quarter 2022 core funds from operations (“Core FFO”) increased 11.8% to $71.8 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, compared to $64.3 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, during the second quarter of 2021.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, Core FFO increased 13.0% to $144.4 million, or $1.12 per diluted share, from $127.8 million, or $1.19 per diluted share, during the same period in 2021.

Results for both periods were driven by increased rental income as a result of the Company’s portfolio expansion, increased occupancy, improved average base rent per square foot, as well as lower interest costs. The decrease in the per diluted share metrics was primarily due to an increase in the share count of 18% as a result of PECO’s July 2021 underwritten IPO.

Same-Center NOI

Second quarter 2022 same-center net operating income (“NOI”) increased 4.3% to $89.7 million compared to $86.0 million during the second quarter of 2021.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, same-center NOI increased 5.5% to $179.3 million from $169.9 million during the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Results for both periods were driven by a $0.37 increase in average base rent per square foot and an improvement in average occupancy, offset by reduced out-of-period recoveries in 2022 when compared to the same year-ago period.

Jeff Edison summarized the quarter: “Second quarter results highlight the strength of PECO’s focused and differentiated strategy of owning and operating small-format, neighborhood centers anchored by the #1 or #2 grocer in a market which drives high-recurring foot traffic and Neighbor demand and results in superior financial and operating performance. PECO is a growth company positioned to gain share as we target and buy grocery-anchored shopping centers from a target market of 5,800 identified grocery-anchored shopping centers across the U.S. Our investment grade balance sheet, one of the strongest in our sector, and strong cash-flow-generating portfolio support this growth. With our experienced cycle-tested team, integrated operating platform, and grocery-anchored strategy we are well-positioned to outperform in the future.”

Discussion and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

Same-Center Net Operating Income

The Company presents Same-Center NOI as a supplemental measure of its performance. The Company defines NOI as total operating revenues, adjusted to exclude non-cash revenue items, less property operating expenses and real estate taxes. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, Same-Center NOI represents the NOI for the 255 properties that were wholly-owned and operational for the entire portion of all comparable reporting periods. The Company believes Same-Center NOI provides useful information to its investors about its financial and operating performance because it provides a performance measure of the revenues and expenses directly involved in owning and operating real estate assets and provides a perspective not immediately apparent from net income (loss). Because Same-Center NOI excludes the change in NOI from properties acquired or disposed of after December 31, 2020, it highlights operating trends such as occupancy levels, rental rates, and operating costs on properties that were operational for all comparable periods. Other REITs may use different methodologies for calculating Same-Center NOI, and accordingly, PECO’s Same-Center NOI may not be comparable to other REITs.

Same-Center NOI should not be viewed as an alternative measure of the Company’s financial performance as it does not reflect the operations of its entire portfolio, nor does it reflect the impact of general and administrative expenses, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, other income (expense), or the level of capital expenditures and leasing costs necessary to maintain the operating performance of the Company’s properties that could materially impact its results from operations.

Nareit Funds from Operations and Core Funds from Operations

Nareit FFO is a non-GAAP financial performance measure that is widely recognized as a measure of REIT operating performance. The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“Nareit”) defines FFO as net income (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding: (i) gains (or losses) from sales of property and gains (or losses) from change in control; (ii) depreciation and amortization related to real estate; and (iii) impairment losses on real estate and impairments of in-substance real estate investments in investees that are driven by measurable decreases in the fair value of the depreciable real estate held by the unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures are calculated to reflect Nareit FFO on the same basis. The Company calculates Nareit FFO Attributable to Stockholders and OP Unit Holders in a manner consistent with the Nareit definition.

Core FFO is an additional financial performance measure used by the Company as Nareit FFO includes certain non-comparable items that affect its performance over time. The Company believes that Core FFO is helpful in assisting management and investors with the assessment of the sustainability of operating performance in future periods, and that it is more reflective of its core operating performance and provides an additional measure to compare PECO’s performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that may cause short-term fluctuations in net income (loss). To arrive at Core FFO, the Company adjusts Nareit FFO Attributable to Stockholders and OP Unit Holders to exclude certain recurring and non-recurring items including, but not limited to: (i) depreciation and amortization of corporate assets; (ii) changes in the fair value of the earn-out liability; (iii) amortization of unconsolidated joint venture basis differences; (iv) gains or losses on the extinguishment or modification of debt and other; (v) other impairment charges; (vi) transaction and acquisition expenses; and (vii) realized performance income.

Nareit FFO, Nareit FFO Attributable to Stockholders and OP Unit Holders, and Core FFO should not be considered alternatives to net income (loss) under GAAP, as an indication of the Company’s liquidity, nor as an indication of funds available to cover its cash needs, including its ability to fund distributions. Core FFO may not be a useful measure of the impact of long-term operating performance on value if the Company does not continue to operate its business plan in the manner currently contemplated.

Accordingly, Nareit FFO, Nareit FFO Attributable to Stockholders and OP Unit Holders, and Core FFO should be reviewed in connection with other GAAP measurements, and should not be viewed as more prominent measures of performance than net income (loss) or cash flows from operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s Nareit FFO, Nareit FFO Attributable to Stockholders and OP Unit Holders, and Core FFO, as presented, may not be comparable to amounts calculated by other REITs.

Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization for Real Estate and Adjusted EBITDAre

Nareit defines EBITDAre as net income (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP before: (i) interest expense; (ii) income tax expense; (iii) depreciation and amortization; (iv) gains or losses from disposition of depreciable property; and (v) impairment write-downs of depreciable property. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures are calculated to reflect EBITDAre on the same basis.

Adjusted EBITDAre is an additional performance measure used by the Company as EBITDAre includes certain non-comparable items that affect the Company’s performance over time. To arrive at Adjusted EBITDAre, the Company excludes certain recurring and non-recurring items from EBITDAre, including, but not limited to: (i) changes in the fair value of the earn-out liability; (ii) other impairment charges; (iii) amortization of basis differences in the Company’s investments in its unconsolidated joint ventures; (iv) transaction and acquisition expenses; and (v) realized performance income.

The Company has included the calculation of EBITDAre to better align with publicly traded REITs. The Company uses EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre as additional measures of operating performance which allow it to compare earnings independent of capital structure, determine debt service and fixed cost coverage, and measure enterprise value. Additionally, the Company believes they are a useful indicator of its ability to support its debt obligations. EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss), as an indication of the Company’s liquidity, nor as an indication of funds available to cover its cash needs, including its ability to fund distributions. Accordingly, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre should be reviewed in connection with other GAAP measurements, and should not be viewed as more prominent measures of performance than net income (loss) or cash flows from operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre, as presented, may not be comparable to amounts calculated by other REITs.
