DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Apartment Investment and Management Company (“Aimco”) (NYSE: AIV) announced today second quarter results for 2022 and provided highlights on recent activities.

Wes Powell, Aimco President and Chief Executive Officer, comments: “Aimco has accomplished a great deal during 2022 and we are well positioned for continued success. The early monetization of our four development assets leased from AIR Communities (“AIR”) highlights our team’s ability to execute and will lead to $100 million dollars of value creation for Aimco shareholders.

“Our diversified portfolio of income producing properties continues to yield strong results, with net operating income up 14.9% during the first half of 2022.

“During the year we sold two stabilized multifamily assets above the values used in our internal Net Asset Value (“NAV”) estimate and also added multi-phase development opportunities in South Florida and Washington, D.C. Through opportunities directly sourced by the Aimco team, our future development pipeline has nearly tripled since the start of 2021, and now, in total, has the potential for more than 15 million square feet of residential and mixed-use development.

“We have agreements in place that will retire or refinance more than $1.0 billion of near-term liabilities and in doing so improved our balance sheet which is now comprised of primarily fixed-rate debt with an average term to maturity of 8.4 years.”

Mr. Powell continued, “I am pleased with the ongoing value creation being delivered by the Aimco team but also recognize that Aimco shares have traded at sizable discounts to our most recently published NAV. As such, in the first half of the year Aimco repurchased nearly 750,000 shares and, in July, Aimco’s Board of Directors updated the authorization for the purchase of up to 15 million additional shares.

“I am thankful to the Aimco team for their dedication and good work, and to the Aimco Board of Directors for their engagement and guidance, as we execute on our shared commitment to building, and unlocking, value for Aimco shareholders.”

Financial Results and Recent Highlights

  • Net income attributable to common stockholders per share, on a fully dilutive basis, was $1.57 for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, compared to net income per share of $(0.13) for the same period in 2021, due primarily to the recognition of income resulting from the agreement to terminate the AIR leases and gains related to the sale of Pathfinder Village.
  • As of July 31, 2022, total shareholder return (“TSR”) since the December 15, 2020 separation from AIR was 65.1% and year-to-date was 7.8%.
  • Second Quarter 2022 Revenue and NOI from Aimco’s Stabilized Operating Properties were up 11.2% and 14.4%, respectively, year over year, with occupancy of 97.7%, up 20 basis points year over year.
  • Aimco reached an agreement with AIR that will result in more than $100 million of realized Value Creation, net of costs for Aimco shareholders and eliminate the $469 million obligation related to the four leased properties from AIR.
  • Aimco completed the early repayment of the $534 million of notes due to AIR, originally scheduled to mature in January 2024 and carrying an annual rate of 5.2%, with proceeds from property level financings, the sales of Pathfinder Village and Cedar Rim, and the placement of preferred equity secured by a portfolio of stabilized properties.

Value Add, Opportunistic & Alternative Investments:

Development and Redevelopment

Aimco generally seeks development and redevelopment opportunities where barriers to entry are high, target customers can be clearly defined, and Aimco has a comparative advantage over others in the market. Aimco’s Value Add and Opportunistic investments may also target portfolio acquisitions, operational turnarounds, and re-entitlements.

As of June 30, 2022, Aimco had eight active development and redevelopment projects located in five U.S. markets, in varying phases of construction and lease-up. These projects remain on track, as measured by budget, lease-up metrics, and current market valuations. During the second quarter, Aimco invested $62.5 million in development and redevelopment activities. Updates include:

  • As previously announced, following the successful development and lease-up of 707 Leahy in Redwood City, California, Prism in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Flamingo Point North Tower in Miami Beach, Florida, and The Fremont on the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado, Aimco and AIR have agreed to cancel Aimco’s leasehold interest in each property on September 1, 2022. In return for the termination of the leases, Aimco will receive $200 million, resulting in Value Creation, net of costs, of approximately $100 million, which will be realized about 18 months sooner than originally anticipated.
  • At The Hamilton in Miami, Florida, Aimco now expects to welcome the first residents into redesigned and fully renovated units in August 2022. As of July 31, 2022, 61 units were leased or pre-leased at rental rates more than 20% ahead of underwriting.
  • Construction continues on schedule and on budget at Upton Place in Northwest Washington, D.C., the Benson Hotel and Faculty Club on the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado, and at our single-family home development project, Oak Shore, in Corte Madera, California.

Alternative Investments

Aimco makes alternative investments where it has special knowledge or expertise relevant to the venture and opportunity exists for positive asymmetric outcomes. Aimco’s current alternative investments include a mezzanine loan secured by a stabilized multifamily property with an option to participate in future multifamily development as well as three passive equity investments. Updates include:

  • The borrower on Aimco’s $354.4 million mezzanine loan, which is secured by the Parkmerced stabilized multifamily property plus phases two through nine of the site’s future development opportunity, remains current on its first mortgage obligations. The neighboring San Francisco State University is expected to return to full in-person learning this fall, with hybrid options, increasing the demand for the apartments that serve as collateral for the Aimco loan. Due to the relative size of Aimco’s investment and alternative accretive uses of capital, Aimco recently initiated a marketing effort to explore potential opportunities to monetize all or a portion of its investment.
  • Aimco redeemed 22% of its passive equity investment in IQHQ Inc., a life sciences developer. In July, Aimco received proceeds of $16.5 million from the sale resulting in a greater than 50% internal rate of return over the hold period for this portion of its investment. Aimco retains 2.4 million shares worth $59.7 million and the opportunity to collaborate with IQHQ on future development opportunities that include a multifamily component. 

Investment Activity

Aimco is focused on development and redevelopment, funded through joint ventures. Aimco will also consider opportunistic investments in related activities. Updates include:

  • In May, Aimco executed a joint venture agreement to act as a co-GP on the development of a phased multifamily community in Bethesda, Maryland. The project is fully entitled and includes approvals for over 2,200 units in six phases. Aimco will participate in the first two multifamily phases totaling 574 units with an expected Aimco investment of approximately $18 million. Aimco also has rights to increase our investment and to choose to participate in future phases of development.
  • In June, July, and August, Aimco closed on the purchase of three development parcels it contracted to acquire, for $100 million, in February 2022. The nine-acre assemblage is located in the rapidly growing Flagler Village neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and allows for approximately three million square feet of phased, mixed-use development, which could contain up to 1,500 residential units, more than 300 hotel keys, and more than 100,000 square feet of retail space at full build-out. Aimco intends to execute the planned development activity through joint venture financing.

Operating Property Results

Aimco owns a diversified portfolio of operating apartment communities located in ten major U.S. markets with average rents in line with local market averages. Aimco also owns one commercial office building that is part of an assemblage with an adjacent apartment building.

Aimco’s operating properties produced solid results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.
