(Nasdaq: PECO) ("PECO" or the "Company"), one of the nation's largest owners and operators of grocery-anchoredomni-channel neighborhood shopping centers, reported net income attributable to stockholders of $11.0 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2022.

  • Core FFO totaled $76.6 million, or $0.58 per diluted share
  • Same-centerNOI increased 4.3% versus the third quarter ended September 30, 2021
  • Leased portfolio occupancy as of September 30, 2022 increased to a record-high 97.1%
  • Comparable new and renewal rent spreads were 21.3% and 15.5%, respectively
  • Acquired one grocery-anchored shopping center and two outparcels for $59.5 million
  • Net debt to annualized adjusted EBITDAre was 5.4x compared to 5.6x at December 31, 2021

Management Commentary

"PECO's grocery-anchored and necessity-based Neighbor mix, our right-sized format and well-positioned locations in growing markets, resulted in continued strong leasing demand," stated Jeff Edison, chairman and chief executive officer of PECO. "Our team delivered another strong quarter with same-center NOI growth of

4.3% and record occupancy of 97.1%. Our performance allows us to raise the midpoint of our 2022 guidance for the third quarter in a row. As reflected in our results, 2022 has been a year of reaching record highs in occupancy and releasing spreads. Our grocery-anchored neighborhood centers continue to benefit from structural and macroeconomic trends that create tailwinds for us as we head into 2023 and beyond, providing us with confidence in our ability to continue to deliver strong results."

Financial Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2022

Net Income

Third quarter 2022 net income attributable to stockholders totaled $11.0 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to net income of $14.6 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, during the third quarter of 2021.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, net income attributable to stockholders totaled $34.6 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, compared to net income of $20.3 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for the same period in 2021.

Nareit FFO

Third quarter 2022 funds from operations attributable to stockholders and operating partnership ("OP") unit holders as defined by Nareit ("Nareit FFO") increased 26.4% to $72.0 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, from $56.9 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, during the third quarter of 2021.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, Nareit FFO increased 29.9% to $210.2 million, or $1.62 per diluted share, from $161.8 million, or $1.44 per diluted share, during the same period in 2021.

The $15.1 million increase for the third quarter of 2022 and the $48.4 million increase for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 were driven by an increase in rental income as a result of the Company's portfolio expansion, lower interest expense, and 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

Third quarter 2022 core funds from operations ("Core FFO") increased 15.4% to $76.6 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, compared to $66.4 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, during the third quarter of 2021.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, Core FFO increased 13.8% to $221.0 million, or $1.70 per diluted share, from $194.2 million, or $1.73 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 result for the nine months ended 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

Third quarter 2022 same-center net operating income ("NOI") increased 4.3% to $92.5 million compared to $88.7 million during the third quarter of 2021.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, same-center NOI increased 5.1% to $271.8 million from $258.6 million during the nine months ended September 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 collections in 2022 when compared to the same year-ago period.

Jeff Edison summarized the quarter: "Our third quarter results continue to 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. Our experienced cycle-tested team, integrated operating platform, and grocery-anchored strategy place PECO in a strong position, despite an uncertain macroeconomic environment, with a fortress balance sheet and liquidity that will allow us to take advantage of opportunities as they arise."
