Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. (NYSE: SRC) ("Spirit" or the "Company"), a net-lease real estate investment trust ("REIT") that invests in single-tenant, operationally essential real estate, today reported its financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.
Generated net income of $0.60 vs $0.74 per diluted share, FFO per share of $0.92 vs $1.00 and AFFO per share of $0.90 vs $0.86, compared to the same quarter in 2021.
Invested $416.6 million in the second quarter at a Cash Capitalization Rate of 6.37%, including the acquisition of 56 properties across 38 transactions with a weighted average lease term of 14.4 years.
Generated $103.3 million in gross proceeds from the disposition of 17 properties, including 10 occupied properties at a Disposition Capitalization Rate of 4.38%.
Issued 2.0 million shares of common stock to settle certain forward contracts, generating net proceeds of $90.0 million. As of June 30, 2022, Spirit had unsettled forward contracts for 1.1 million shares of common stock.
Maintained strong operational performance, with occupancy of 99.8%, Lost Rent of 0.03% and Unreimbursed Property Costs of 1.3%.
Had Adjusted Debt to Annualized Adjusted EBITDAre of 5.2x as of June 30, 2022.
Held Corporate Liquidity of $594.3 million as of June 30, 2022, comprised of availability under the 2019 Credit Facility, cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, and available proceeds from unsettled forward equity contracts.
Subsequent to June 30, 2022, the Company received commitments for $800 million of term loans comprised of a $500 million five-year term loan and $300 million three-year term loan. Additionally, the Company entered into interest rate swap agreements to swap one-month SOFR to a fixed payment for five years for a notional amount of $500 million and for three years for a notional amount of $300 million. The interest rate swaps would result in an average effective rate of 3.45% for the five-year term loan and 3.59% for the three-year term loan.
“We are very pleased with our second quarter capital deployment of $416.6 million, including the acquisition of 56 properties, and the continued excellent performance metrics produced by our portfolio. During the quarter, we further validated our investment approach through accretive dispositions, which we expect will continue through the back half of the year. As we look forward, we are seeing better investment opportunities and are excited about our ability to generate attractive risk adjusted returns for our investors,” stated Jackson Hsieh, President and Chief Executive Officer.
For the second quarter of 2022, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.638 per share of common stock, representing an annualized rate of $2.552 per share. The Board of Directors also declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.375 per preferred share. The quarterly common dividend was paid on July 15, 2022 to stockholders of record as of June 30, 2022, and the preferred dividend was paid on June 30, 2022 to stockholders of record as of June 15, 2022.
The Company maintained its previously announced guidance for fiscal year 2022:
AFFO per share of $3.52 to $3.58
Capital deployment of approximately $1.5 billion (comprised of acquisitions and revenue producing capital expenditures)
Dispositions of approximately $200 million to $300 million
The Company does not provide a reconciliation for its guidance range of AFFO per diluted share to net income available to common stockholders per diluted share, the most directly comparable forward looking GAAP financial measure, due to the inherent variability in timing and/or amount of various items that could impact net income available to common stockholders per diluted share, including, for example, gains/losses on debt extinguishment, impairments and other items that are outside the control of the Company.
