The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants.

    • Duke Assets: HTA acquired three additional properties in July for an aggregate purchase price of $131.7 million.  These properties total approximately 245,000 square feet of GLA and were 100% leased as of the date of acquisition.

2017 Investments – Q3 Performance

  • Investments: During 2017, HTA completed and closed $2.7 billion of investments, totaling approximately 6.6 million square feet of GLA, including projects under development.  These acquisitions included 93 in-service properties and seven development properties, including four recently developed properties and three properties under development, but which were 100% pre-leased and expected to be completed by Q2 2018.  Approximately 89% of the GLA for these investments are located in HTA’s existing key markets, allowing HTA to manage and service these properties with its existing property management, building services, and leasing platform, thereby generating additional cash flow opportunities.
  • Cash NOI: During the quarter, HTA generated $32.9 million of Cash NOI on its 2017 investments, including a partial period impact for acquisitions that closed and developments that were completed during the period.  As of September 30, 2017, HTA’s run rate yield on its 2017 investments was approximately 5.1%, which included the full quarter impact of acquisitions and developments closed and completed in the period, and new leases that were signed but not yet occupied.
  • Leasing: HTA entered into new leases on approximately 26,000 square feet of GLA for its 2017 investments, or 0.4% of the total acquired GLA.  HTA also entered into renewal leases totaling approximately 108,000 square feet of GLA.  HTA executed these leases utilizing its existing in-house leasing representatives which would have resulted in capitalized leasing commissions totaling $0.5 million, or 1.5% of third quarter Cash NOI, if third party brokers had been used by HTA.
  • Property Management & Building Services: As of the end of the period, HTA provided property management services to 91% of its 2017 investments as measured by GLA.  During the quarter, HTA earned over $1.0 million of property management fees related to these properties which were included in total Cash NOI.  On an annual basis, these properties generated a total of over $5.0 million in property management fees.  As of the end of the period, HTA provided building engineering services to approximately 64% of the multi-tenanted properties included in its 2017 investments.  In addition, during the quarter, HTA earned over $250,000 in expense recoveries from building services which were included in total Cash NOI.
  • Development: During the third quarter, HTA-Development completed two development projects located in Oxford, Mississippi and Dallas, TX, with a total construction cost of $33.8 million.  As such, four of the seven development properties acquired by HTA as a part of the Duke acquisition have been completed, but are not all fully leased at this time.  As of the end of the quarter, these four properties were 77% leased and generated $0.6 million of Cash NOI.  HTA is currently in the late stages of lease negotiations for an additional 38,000 square feet of GLA that would bring the leased rate on these properties to 90% if completed.  The remaining three properties under development are 100% pre-leased and are projected to be completed by Q2 2018.  In total, the seven development properties are projected to generate between $2.50 million and $2.75 million in quarterly Cash NOI upon completion and stabilization.

Capital Markets

  • Equity: In September 2017, HTA entered into new equity distribution agreements with its various sales agents with respect to its at-the-market (“ATM”) offering program of common stock with an aggregate sales amount of up to $500.0 million.
  • Debt: In July 2017, HTA, as guarantor, and Healthcare Trust of America Holdings, LP (“HTALP”), as borrower, entered into an amended and restated $1.3 billion unsecured credit agreement which increased the amount available under the unsecured revolving credit facility to $1.0 billion and extended the maturities of the unsecured revolving credit facility to June 30, 2022 and for the $300.0 million unsecured term loan until February 1, 2023.  The interest rate on the unsecured revolving credit facility is adjusted LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 0.83% to 1.55% per annum based on HTA’s credit rating.

Year-to-Date 2017 Highlights

Operating

  • Net Income Attributable to Common Stockholders: Decreased 27.1% to $21.4 million, compared to year-to-date 2016.  Earnings per diluted share decreased 42.9% to $0.12 per diluted share, compared to year-to-date 2016.  Total revenues increased $101.3 million due to the continued growth in HTA’s operations, however, the increase in revenues was primarily offset as a result of the Duke acquisition by the increase in transaction expenses and loss on extinguishment of debt related to bridge facility fees paid.
  • FFO: As defined by NAREIT, increased 28.5%, to $198.7 million, compared to year-to-date 2016.  FFO per diluted share remained stable at $1.12 per diluted share, compared to year-to-date 2016.
