PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE:BDN) today reported its financial and operating results for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2020 and narrowed full year 2020 guidance.
“During the quarter we remained fully engaged with all of our stakeholders to ensure the health and safety of our employees, tenants, public officials and community groups,” stated Gerard H. Sweeney, President and Chief Executive Officer for Brandywine Realty Trust. “Our operating and financial platforms remain strong and secure and we have a well-covered dividend. Our Commerce Square joint venture on which we realized a $272 million gain also improved our already excellent liquidity position. Our $600 million line of credit is fully available with approximately $62 million of cash on hand as of September 30, 2020. We are 100% complete on our 2020 business plan and speculative revenue with third quarter mark-to-market rents achieving strong increases of 17.1% and 9.0% on an accrual and cash basis, respectively. During the quarter, our portfolio experienced over 100,000 square feet of net absorption. Based on this activity, we are narrowing our 2020 FFO guidance from $1.38 to $1.44 per diluted share to $1.40 to $1.42 per diluted share.”
Third Quarter Highlights
- Net income available to common shareholders; $274.4 million, or $1.60 per diluted share. Third quarter results include a $271.9 million, or $1.59 per diluted share, net gain on disposition of real estate from our previously announced joint venture of Commerce Square.
- Funds from Operations (FFO); $60.0 million, or $0.35 per diluted share.
- Core Portfolio: 91.0% occupied and 92.6% leased.

2020 Business Plan Revisions
We continue to monitor events related to COVID-19 and are taking steps to mitigate the potential impact and risks to Brandywine. While the duration and economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic remains unknown, as of the date of this press release, we believe that the impact of COVID-19 has been reflected in our updated 2020 business plan and earnings estimates. We are continually assessing the ongoing effects of the pandemic to our business plan, our tenants and earnings estimates.
The following is a summary of our third quarter consolidated cash base rent collections as of October 20, 2020:
- 99.5% of total cash-based rent due has been received from our tenants during the third quarter 2020.
- We have granted rent relief requests primarily to our co-working and retail tenants, totaling approximately 0.9% of annualized billings. The relief requests have substantially all been in the form of rent deferrals that are primarily being repaid in 2020 and 2021.
Through October 20, 2020, approximately 97% of total cash-based rent has been received from our tenants which reflects 97% collection rate from our office tenants.
Recent Transaction Activity
Joint Venture Activity
- One and Two Commerce, Philadelphia, PA
As previously announced, we closed on our $600 million joint venture for One and Two Commerce Square, selling a 30% preferred equity interest to a global institutional investor for $115 million. As part of this transaction, each of Brandywine and the investor have committed to investing an additional $20 million of preferred equity in the property. The transaction is subject to an existing $222 million mortgage, and we realized approximately $100 million in net cash proceeds. Brandywine will continue as Property Manager and Leasing Agent for the properties. We recorded a gain on the transaction during the third quarter totaling $271.9 million.
The Commerce Square complex comprises an entire city block fronting Market Street between 20th & 21st Streets in Center City, Philadelphia, and consists of two 40-story, identical, Trophy Class office towers, totaling 1.9 million square feet, along with a 519-space underground parking garage, and a stunning central courtyard of 30,000 square feet. The towers were designed by renowned architects, IM Pei & Partners, and have individual floorplates between 15K and 34K SF to accommodate a variety of flexible, modern workspaces, while providing unobstructed panoramic views.
- We had no outstanding balance on our $600.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility as of September 30, 2020.
- We had $62.3 million of cash and cash equivalents on-hand as of September 30, 2020.
- Two Logan Square: we acquired the first mortgage, totaling $79.8 million on October 21, 2020. The first mortgage was acquired with cash-on-hand and proceeds from our unsecured line of credit.

We expect to issue a press release in advance of these events to reconfirm the dates and times and provide all related information.
This press release contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Such forward-looking statements can generally be identified by our use of forward-looking terminology such as “will,” “strategy,” “expects,” “seeks,” “believes,” “potential,” or other similar words. Because such statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and contingencies, actual results may differ materially from the expectations, intentions, beliefs, plans or predictions of the future expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements, including our 2020 guidance, are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of our management and are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are difficult to predict and generally not within our control. Such risks, uncertainties and contingencies include, among others: risks related to the impact of COVID-19 and other potential future outbreaks of infectious diseases on our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows and those of our tenants as well as on the economy and real estate and financial markets; reduced demand for office space and pricing pressures, including from competitors, that could limit our ability to lease space or set rents at expected levels or that could lead to declines in rent; uncertainty and volatility in capital and credit markets, including changes that reduce availability, and increase costs, of capital; the potential loss or bankruptcy of tenants or the inability of tenants to meet their rent and other lease obligations; risks of acquisitions and dispositions, including unexpected liabilities and integration costs; delays in completing, and cost overruns incurred in connection with, our developments and redevelopments; disagreements with joint venture partners; unanticipated operating and capital costs; uninsured casualty losses and in ability to obtain adequate insurance, including coverage for terrorist acts; asset impairments; our dependence upon certain geographic markets; changes in governmental regulations, tax laws and rates and similar matters; unexpected costs of REIT qualification compliance; and costs and disruptions as the result of a cybersecurity incident or other technology disruption. The declaration and payment of future dividends (both timing and amount) is subject to the determination of our Board of Trustees, in its sole discretion, after considering various factors, including our financial condition, historical and forecast operating results, and available cash flow, as well as any applicable laws and contractual covenants and any other relevant factors. Our Board’s practice regarding declaration of dividends may be modified at any time and from time to time. Additional information on factors which could impact us and the forward-looking statements contained herein are included in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. We assume no obligation to update or supplement forward-looking statements that become untrue because of subsequent events except as required by law.
NON-GAAP SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL MEASURES
We compute our financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Although FFO and NOI are non-GAAP financial measures, we believe that FFO and NOI calculations are helpful to shareholders and potential investors and are widely recognized measures of real estate investment trust performance. At the end of this press release, we have provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure.
Funds from Operations (FFO)
We compute FFO in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), which may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not compute FFO in accordance with the NAREIT definition, or that interpret the NAREIT definition differently than us. NAREIT defines FFO as net income (loss) before non-controlling interests and excluding gains (losses) on sales of depreciable operating property, impairment losses on depreciable consolidated real estate, impairment losses on investments in unconsolidated real estate ventures and extraordinary items (computed in accordance with GAAP); plus real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs), and after similar adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures. Net income, the GAAP measure that we believe to be most directly comparable to FFO, includes depreciation and amortization expenses, gains or losses on property sales, extraordinary items and non-controlling interests. To facilitate a clear understanding of our historical operating results, FFO should be examined in conjunction with net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as presented in the financial statements included elsewhere in this release. FFO does not represent cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) and should not be considered to be an alternative to net income (loss) (determined in accordance with GAAP) as an indication of our financial performance or to be an alternative to cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available for our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions to shareholders. We generally consider FFO and FFO per share to be useful measures for understanding and comparing our operating results because, by excluding gains and losses related to sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets, impairment losses and real estate asset depreciation and amortization (which can differ across owners of similar assets in similar condition based on historical cost accounting and useful life estimates), FFO and FFO per share can help investors compare the operating performance of a company’s real estate across reporting periods and to the operating performance of other companies
Net Operating Income (NOI)
NOI (accrual basis) is a financial measure equal to net income available to common shareholders, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, plus corporate general and administrative expense, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, non-controlling interest in the Operating Partnership and losses from early extinguishment of debt, less interest income, development and management income, gains from property dispositions, gains on sale from discontinued operations, gains on early extinguishment of debt, income from discontinued operations, income from unconsolidated joint ventures and non-controlling interest in property partnerships. In some cases we also present NOI on a cash basis, which is NOI after eliminating the effects of straight-lining of rent and deferred market intangible amortization. NOI presented by us may not be comparable to NOI reported by other REITs that define NOI differently. NOI should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of our performance or to cash flows as a measure of the Company's liquidity or its ability to make distributions. We believe NOI is a useful measure for evaluating the operating performance of our properties, as it excludes certain components from net income available to common shareholders in order to provide results that are more closely related to a property's results of operations. We use NOI internally to evaluate the performance of our operating segments and to make decisions about resource allocations. We concluded that NOI provides useful information to investors regarding our financial condition and results of operations, as it reflects only the income and expense items incurred at the property level, as well as the impact on operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs and acquisition and development activity on an unlevered basis.
Same Store Properties
In our analysis of NOI, particularly to make comparisons of NOI between periods meaningful, it is important to provide information for properties that were in-service and owned by us throughout each period presented. We refer to properties acquired or placed in-service prior to the beginning of the earliest period presented and owned by us through the end of the latest period presented as Same Store Properties. Same Store Properties therefore exclude properties placed in-service, acquired, repositioned, held for sale or in development or redevelopment after the beginning of the earliest period presented or disposed of prior to the end of the latest period presented. Accordingly, it takes at least one year and one quarter after a property is acquired for that property to be included in Same Store Properties.
Our core portfolio is comprised of our wholly-owned properties, excluding any properties currently in development, re-development or re-entitlement.
