DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Apartment Investment and Management Company (“Aimco”) (NYSE: AIV) announced today second quarter results for 2023, updated guidance, and provided highlights on recent activities.

Wes Powell, Aimco President and Chief Executive Officer, comments: “Rental housing fundamentals remain strong and the Aimco team continued to deliver solid results across our two principal lines of business: the ownership of a diversified portfolio of stabilized apartment communities and value-add investing, primarily in the development and redevelopment of multifamily properties. In addition, we made significant progress in our plans to reduce exposure to alternative assets and further bolstered what was already a solid balance sheet.

“Aimco’s operating apartment communities continue to experience high demand and broadly benefit from their ‘B’ price point and locations within mature submarkets that face limited competitive new supply. During the first half of the year, our stabilized portfolio delivered NOI growth of 11.4% and we have increased our projection for year-over-year NOI growth by 225 basis points at the midpoint.

“Our active development projects remain on time, on budget, and are projected to produce more than $55 million of NOI annually upon stabilization, with more than half of that income expected to be online within the next 12 months. Planning and entitlement investment in Aimco’s pipeline assets are adding value as we prepare sites for future development but maintain the optionality to monetize those assets at various points in the process, as needed to maximize our risk adjusted returns.

“Furthering our efforts to simplify the Aimco business and prudently allocate capital, we reduced our allocation to alternative investments during the quarter by closing on a partial sale of our Parkmerced mezzanine loan. Together with the unwinding our related interest rate swaption, we monetized $92 million and have a path to realize an additional $156 million under the terms of our agreement with the loan’s purchaser.

“Also during the quarter, we proactively retired $60 million of higher-cost floating rate debt. Our balance sheet benefits from ample liquidity and attractive in place financing with minimal near-term maturities.

“The Aimco board and management team remain committed to maximizing and unlocking value for Aimco shareholders. Year to date, through July 31, we acquired more than 3.1 million shares of Aimco common stock at an average price of $7.54 per share and have authorization to purchase an additional nine million shares.

“I am thankful to work with a committed team whose relentless focus and hard work continues to result in solid performance for Aimco.”

Financial Results and Recent Highlights

  • Net loss attributable to common stockholders per share, on a fully dilutive basis, was $(0.02) for the quarter ended June 30, 2023, compared to net income per share of $1.57 for the same period in 2022, due primarily to the second quarter 2022 recognition of income resulting from the agreement to terminate the leased property agreements with AIR Communities and gains in the same period related to the sale of an apartment community.
  • Second Quarter 2023 revenue, expenses, and NOI from Aimco’s Stabilized Operating Properties were up 9.5%, 8.8%, and 9.8%, respectively, year-over-year, with average monthly revenue per apartment home of $2,291, up $230 year-over-year and an average rent to income of 19.2% for new Aimco residents, down 100 basis points year-over-year.
  • Aimco updated full year 2023 guidance for revenue, expense, and NOI from Aimco’s Stabilized Operating Properties, raising the revenue outlook after completing more than 80% of our lease transactions for the year at favorable rates, and raising the expense outlook primarily due to higher real estate taxes following a substantial increase in the assessed value of Yacht Club at Brickell, located in Miami, Florida, as well as higher than anticipated insurance cost increases following our policy renewal earlier this year. The net impact is an increase in our 2023 NOI growth of 225 bps at the midpoint as compared to prior guidance.

  • In June, Aimco closed on the partial sale of the Parkmerced mezzanine loan, making significant progress on its planned reduction of capital allocated to alternative investments. In total, Aimco has monetized $91.5 million of its Parkmerced investments and, subject to closing the remaining investment, may realize additional proceeds of approximately $156 million.
  • In June, Aimco repaid a $60 million floating interest rate land loan at par, reducing the weighted average cost of debt for Aimco’s developments and land holdings, at the time of payoff, by approximately 90 basis points.
  • Aimco acquired 1.0 million shares of its common stock during the second quarter 2023 at an average cost of $7.97 per share. Year to date, as of July 31, 2023, Aimco acquired more than 3.1 million shares at an average price of $7.54 per share.
  • As of July 31, 2023, total shareholder return (“TSR”) since the December 15, 2020 spin-off of AIR Communities was 52.6% and year-to-date was 17.0%.

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, 2023, Aimco had five active development and redevelopment projects located in four U.S. markets, in varying phases of construction and lease-up. These projects remain on track, as measured by construction budget and lease-up metrics. Additionally, Aimco has a pipeline of future value-add opportunities totaling approximately 14 million gross square feet of development in Aimco’s target markets of Southeast Florida, the Washington D.C. Metro, and Colorado’s Front Range. During the second quarter, Aimco invested $81.1 million in development and redevelopment activities. Updates include:

  • In Miami, Florida, construction and repositioning of The Hamilton is now complete. Demand for rental housing in Southeast Florida remains robust, especially for unique waterfront properties, such as The Hamilton. As of July 31, 2023, 96% of the building’s 276 units were leased or pre-leased at rates more than 20% ahead of underwritten rents. Aimco now expects occupancy to stabilize in the third quarter 2023, ahead of prior expectations.
  • In Bethesda, Maryland, construction is progressing on plan at the first phase of Strathmore Square, which will contain 220 highly tailored apartment homes with initial delivery on track for the second half of 2024. This suburban infill project is located adjacent to the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro station and the Strathmore Performing Arts Campus, and is 1.5 miles from The National Institutes of Health main campus. Funding for the $164.0 million project is fully secured with Aimco having already funded 100% of its equity commitment.
  • In upper northwest Washington D.C., construction at Upton Place continues on schedule and on budget. Aimco began pre-leasing efforts for Upton’s 689 apartment homes in July 2023 in anticipation of initial delivery in the fourth quarter of 2023. To date, 80% of the project’s 105K square feet of retail space has been leased and Aimco has received letters of intent from, or is in lease negotiations with, retailers on another 18%.
  • In Corte Madera, California, construction is ongoing at Oak Shore where 16 luxury single family rental homes and eight accessory dwelling units are being developed. Aimco expects to deliver the first homes in the third quarter 2023 with pre-leasing efforts underway.
  • In Aurora, Colorado, The Benson Hotel and Faculty Club, a 106-key boutique hotel and event center with 18K square feet of event space, is complete and open to guests. As the only ‘on campus’ accommodations, The Benson is garnering strong interest from the many departments and offices located on the surrounding Anschutz Medical Campus, which includes The University of Colorado Medical School, UC Health Hospital, Children’s Hospital Colorado, The Rocky Mountain VA Medical Center and the burgeoning Fitzsimons Innovation Community.
  • In the second quarter 2023, Aimco invested $5.6 million into future development pipeline projects located in Southeast Florida, the Washington D.C. Metro, and Colorado’s Front Range. Programming, design, documentation and entitlement efforts continue. As part of Aimco’s capital allocation strategy, it may choose to monetize certain pipeline assets prior to vertical construction in an effort to maximize value add and risk adjusted returns.

Alternative Investments

Aimco’s current alternative investments are primarily those investments originated prior to the separation from AIR Communities and 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. Over time, we plan to significantly reduce capital allocated to these investments. Updates include:

  • In June, Aimco made significant progress on its plan to reduce capital allocated to alternative investments through the partial sale of the Parkmerced mezzanine loan. Aimco closed a 20% non-controlling position for $33.5 million with the purchaser having the option to acquire the remaining 80% for an additional $134 million plus interest accruing at no less than 19% annually through May 2024. At the time of closing, the purchaser pre-paid $4 million of interest to Aimco and is expected to pay another $7 million prior to year end.

Investment Activity

Aimco is focused on growing the business, and delivering strong investment returns, through development and redevelopment activities, funded primarily through third-party capital.

In the second quarter, no new investments were made.

Operating Property Results

Aimco owns a diversified portfolio of operating apartment communities located in eight major U.S. markets with average rents in line with local market averages.

Aimco’s Stabilized Operating Properties produced solid results for the quarter ended June 30, 2023.

  • Revenue in the second quarter 2023 was $37.0 million, up 9.5% year-over-year, resulting from a $230 increase in average monthly revenue per apartment home to $2,291, partially offset by a 140-basis point decrease in Average Daily Occupancy to 96.2%.
  • New lease rents increased 8.2% and Aimco retained 60.8% of residents whose leases were expiring during the quarter at rents 12.5% higher, on average, than the previous lease.
  • The median annual household income of new residents was $140,000 in the second quarter 2023, up more than 20% from the same period in 2022, representing a rent to income ratio of 19.2%.
  • Expenses in the second quarter 2023 were up 8.8% year over year due primarily to higher real estate taxes and insurance.
  • Net operating income in the second quarter 2023 was $25.5 million, up 9.8% year-over-year.

Other Real Estate Operations

Aimco also owns 1001 Brickell Bay Drive, a waterfront office building in Miami, Florida, owned as part of a larger assemblage with substantial development potential. Leases within the building have been executed on terms of less than four years or contain redevelopment provisions as needed to maximize the value of the underlying development rights.

Demand for vacant space at our office building in Miami has remained active with tours and inquiries continuing at a steady pace. Following first quarter lease expirations, as of June 30, 2023, the building was 77% occupied, and by the end of July, the building was 79% leased.

Balance Sheet and Financing Activity

Aimco is highly focused on maintaining a strong balance sheet, including having at all times ample liquidity. As of June 30, 2023, Aimco had access to $339.2 million, including $163.3 million of cash on hand, $25.9 million of restricted cash, and the capacity to borrow up to $150.0 million on its revolving credit facility.

Aimco’s net leverage as of June 30, 2023, was as follows:

  as of June 30, 2023 
Proportionate, $ in thousands Amount  Weighted Avg.
Maturity (Yrs.) [1]
Total non-recourse fixed rate debt $778,442   7.7 
Total non-recourse floating rate debt  101,595   1.9 
Total non-recourse construction loan debt  188,909   2.4 
Cash and restricted cash  (189,249)   
Net Leverage $879,697    
[1] Weighted average maturities presented exclude contractual extension rights.

As of June 30, 2023, 100% of Aimco’s total debt was either fixed rate or hedged with interest rate cap protection and, including contractual extensions, Aimco has only $20.3 million of debt maturing over the next 33 months.

Debt Refinancing

  • In June, Aimco paid off a $60 million floating interest rate land loan at par. The contractual floating interest rate at the time of payoff was 11.875% with an effective rate after consideration of an in-place rate cap of 11.1%. The associated rate cap was also monetized, producing proceeds of $0.6 million. At the time of payoff, the weighted average cost of debt for Aimco’s developments and land holdings was reduced by approximately 90 basis points.

Public Market Equity

Common Stock Repurchases

  • In the second quarter, Aimco repurchased 1.0 million shares of its common stock at a weighted average price of $7.97 per share. In 2023, through July 31, Aimco repurchased more than 3.1 million shares of its common stock at a weighted average price of approximately $7.54 per share.

Commitment to Enhance Stockholder Value

  • The Aimco Board of Directors, in coordination with management, continues its review of a broad range of options to further enhance and unlock value for Aimco stockholders. During the ongoing review, Aimco has engaged with, and will continue to solicit input from, several leading advisory firms, including Morgan Stanley & Co. serving as the Company’s financial advisor.

Aimco is well positioned for long term growth as a result of its high-quality development pipeline and investment platform, diversified portfolio of core and opportunistic multifamily assets, and long-duration, low-cost, balance sheet.

As such, the timing of any actions that may result from the Board’s review will take into consideration a host of factors, including the health and stability of both the financial and capital markets as well as the continued advancement of Aimco’s previously defined strategic plan.

There can be no assurance that the ongoing review will result in any particular transaction or transactions or other strategic changes or outcomes and the timing of any such event is similarly uncertain. The Company does not intend to disclose or comment on developments related to the foregoing unless or until it determines that further disclosure is appropriate or required.

[3] Interest expense decreased in the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 from the same periods ending June 30, 2022, due primarily to the prepayment of debt during 2022.
