Southern California-based REIT Announces It Signed 1.1 Million Square Feet of Leases During the Quarter
LOS ANGELES, Jan 25, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Kilroy Realty Corporation (NYSE: KRC) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, and also announced that it had executed 1.1 million square feet of leases during the final quarter of the year, a number that exceeded its leasing volume for the first three quarters of 2009 combined.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2009, KRC reported a net loss available to common stockholders of $3.0 million, or $0.08 per share, compared to net income available to common stockholders of $4.5 million, or $0.14 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2008. Revenues from continuing operations in the fourth quarter totaled $67.4 million, compared to $72.3 million in the prior year's fourth quarter. Funds from operations (FFO) for the period totaled $17.7 million, or $0.39 per share, compared to $25.7 million, or $0.73 per share, in the prior year period. The results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 include a previously announced one-time $7.0 million charge for separation payments related to the resignation for personal reasons of the company's former chief financial officer in December 2009.

For its fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, KRC reported net income available to common stockholders of $21.8 million, or $0.53 per share, compared to $29.8 million, or $0.91 per share, in fiscal year ended December 31, 2008. Revenues from continuing operations in 2009 totaled $279.4 million, compared to $289.4 million in 2008. FFO for the year totaled $107.2 million, or $2.60 per share, compared to $114.0 million, or $3.26 per share, in 2008.

Results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 also include gains on early extinguishment of debt of approximately $1.8 million, or $0.04 per share, and $4.9 million, or $0.12 per share, respectively, related to the company's repurchase of $122.0 million and $162.0 million, respectively, of its exchangeable senior notes, which mature in 2012. Results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008 include a net lease termination fee of approximately $5.0 million, or $0.14 per share, related to an early termination agreement. All per share amounts in this report are presented on a diluted basis. Financial information for prior periods has been adjusted for the retroactive application of new accounting guidance adopted by the company effective January 1, 2009.

KRC said that new or renewing leases the company signed in the fourth quarter included approximately 583,000 square feet of office leases and 545,000 square feet of industrial leases. Approximately 281,000 square feet was leased in San Diego, 273,000 square feet was leased in Los Angeles and 553,000 square feet was leased in Orange County. For the full year, the company executed 2.0 million square feet of leases.

"We made tremendous and encouraging progress in our leasing program during the fourth quarter," said John B. Kilroy, Jr., the company's president and chief executive officer, "with results that exceeded our efforts through the first three quarters of 2009 combined. Nonetheless, we expect real estate markets to remain choppy going forward until job growth resumes."

KRC's stabilized portfolio increased slightly to just under 12.4 million square feet during the fourth quarter, as the company's one remaining development project, a 51,000 square-foot medical office building located in the company's Sorrento Gateway development in coastal San Diego County, was added to the stabilized portfolio. It is currently 25% leased. The stabilized portfolio was 82.8% occupied at year-end 2009.

The call will begin at 11:00 a.m. Pacific time and last approximately one hour. Those interested in listening via the Internet can access the conference call at www.kilroyrealty.com.

(1) Results have been adjusted for the retroactive application of the new accounting pronouncements adopted by the company on January 1, 2009.

(2) The company calculates FFO in accordance with the White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of NAREIT. The White Paper defines FFO as net income or loss calculated in accordance with GAAP, excluding extraordinary items, as defined by GAAP, and gains and losses from sales of depreciable operating property, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs and depreciation of non-real estate assets), and after adjustment for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

Management believes that FFO is a useful supplemental measure of the company's operating performance. The exclusion from FFO of gains and losses from the sale of operating real estate assets allows investors and analysts to readily identify the operating results of the assets that form the core of the company's activity and assists in comparing those operating results between periods. Also, because FFO is generally recognized as the industry standard for reporting the operations of REITs, it facilitates comparisons of the company's operating performance to other REITs. However, other REITs may use different methodologies to calculate FFO, and accordingly, the company's FFO may not be comparable to all other REITs.

Implicit in historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP is the assumption that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors and analysts have considered presentations of operating results for real estate companies using historical cost accounting alone to be insufficient. Because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, management believes that FFO along with the required GAAP presentations provides a more complete measurement of the company's performance relative to its competitors and a more appropriate basis on which to make decisions involving operating, financing and investing activities than the required GAAP presentations alone would provide.

However, FFO should not be viewed as an alternative measure of the company's operating performance since it does not reflect either depreciation and amortization costs or the level of capital expenditures and leasing costs necessary to maintain the operating performance of the company's properties, which are significant economic costs and could materially impact the company's results from operations.
