November 6, 2023

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

Wes Powell, Aimco President and Chief Executive Officer, comments:

“Thank you for your interest in Aimco. The apartment business remains on sound footing and Aimco is well positioned given the composition of our assets and the quality of our investment platform. Our diversified portfolio of apartment communities located within neighborhoods that have largely avoided the pressure of competitive new supply, has continued to generate strong performance and has experienced NOI growth of nearly 20% over the past 18 months. During the third quarter, average monthly revenues per apartment home increased by 7.2% on a year-over-year basis and we have increased our full year NOI guidance by more than 100 basis points at the midpoint.

“Aimco’s regional investment teams are successfully advancing our active development projects and are on track to deliver more than 600 of those new units by the end of 2023 and another 700 in 2024. It is projected that this current class of projects will produce more than $55 million of NOI annually when fully stabilized, an amount equal to more than half of the NOI currently produced by Aimco’s portfolio of stabilized apartment communities and representing an accretive yield on direct capital investment of 6.8%. While we are advancing plans for a select number of new projects, which offer the prospect of strong risk adjusted returns, we anticipate reducing the amount of Aimco capital that is allocated to development activity over the year ahead given market conditions and the relative attractiveness of other capital allocation opportunities.

“We continue to view the repurchase of Aimco common stock as being very attractive. Over the past 22 months, we have opportunistically repurchased 8.8 million shares at an average price of $7.33 per share. The Aimco Board of Directors recently increased our share repurchase authorization to 30 million shares, doubling the size of our previous authorization.

“Aimco’s balance sheet remains rock solid. Our near-term debt maturities are extremely limited with less than 2% of the total coming due over the next 30 months inclusive of extension options. Fixed-rate loans tied to our stabilized portfolio, representing 70% of our total leverage, carry an interest rate of 4.25%, are fully assumable and have a weighted average time to maturity of 7.4 years.

“Consistent with our capital allocation strategy, at times we may choose to monetize certain pipeline assets prior to vertical construction in order to maximize value and risk adjusted returns. As such, we are preparing to market for sale our Brickell Assemblage located in Miami, as well as certain recently completed development projects and select land holdings. In addition, we remain under agreement to sell our 80% stake in the Parkmerced mezzanine loan. We expect these sales to take place during the course of 2024, provided pricing and terms are favorable. The proceeds will be prudently allocated to return capital to stockholders, reduce leverage, and/or accretive new investments.

“Above all else, the Aimco management team and Board remain intently focused on creating and unlocking value for Aimco stockholders.”

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 September 30, 2023, compared to net income per share of $0.19 for the same period in 2022, due primarily to lower real estate transaction proceeds and reduced tax benefit.
  • Third Quarter 2023 revenue, expenses, and NOI from Aimco’s Stabilized Operating Properties were up 6.4%, 3.5%, and 7.6%, respectively, year-over-year, with average monthly revenue per apartment home increasing by 7.2% to $2,358, while maintaining an average rent to income below 20% for new Aimco residents.

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 September 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 third quarter, Aimco invested $74.4 million in development and redevelopment activities. Updates include:

  • In Miami, Florida, construction, repositioning, and lease-up of The Hamilton is complete. Demand for rental housing in Southeast Florida remains robust, especially for unique waterfront properties such as The Hamilton. As of October 31, 2023, 96% of the building’s 276 units were occupied with in-place leases at rates more than 20% ahead of underwritten rents.
  • 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. The initial delivery of 81 apartment homes occurred, on schedule, in mid-October with the first residents at Upton Place having moved into their new homes on November 1, 2023. As of October 31, 2023, 13 units had been leased or pre-leased, at rates ahead of our initial projections. To date, 80% of the project’s 105K square feet of retail space has been leased and Aimco is in final lease negotiations with retailers on another 7%.
  • 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. Construction has been completed on the initial homes and they will be ready for occupancy in November. As of October 31, 2023, two of the eight accessory dwelling units had been pre-leased at rates ahead of our initial projections.
  • In the third quarter 2023, Aimco invested $4.8 million into programming, design, documentation, and entitlement efforts related to select pipeline projects located in Southeast Florida, the Washington D.C. Metro, and Colorado’s Front Range.

Investment & Disposition Activity

Aimco is focused on delivering strong investment returns, through the ownership of apartment properties as well as development and redevelopment activities, funded primarily through third-party capital.

  • No new investment or disposition activity occurred during the third quarter.
  • Aimco remains under contract to sell its 80% stake in the Parkmerced mezzanine loan for $134 million plus accrued interest. In June, at the time of closing on the sale of a 20% non-controlling position, the purchaser pre-paid $4 million of interest to Aimco and is expected to pay another $7 million prior to year end.
  • Subsequent to quarter end, Aimco initiated plans to market for sale the Brickell Assemblage located in Miami, Florida, as well as certain recently completed developments and select land holdings. Aimco expects the sales to occur by the end of 2024, pending favorable pricing and terms. The proceeds will be allocated to return capital to stockholders, reduce leverage, and/or accretive new investments.

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 September 30, 2023.

 Third Quarter Year-to-Date

Net operating income (NOI) 25.55.7% 78.070.910.0%
  • Revenue in the third quarter 2023 was $37.7 million, up 6.4% year-over-year, resulting from a 7.2% increase in average monthly revenue per apartment home to $2,358, partially offset by a 75-basis point decrease in Average Daily Occupancy to 95.2%. As of October 31, 2023, occupancy had increased to 97.3%.
  • New lease rents increased 8.0% and Aimco retained 58.3% of residents whose leases were expiring during the quarter at rents 4.5% higher, on average, than the previous lease.
  • The median annual household income of new residents was $133,000 in the third quarter 2023, representing a rent-to-income ratio of 19.5%.
  • Expenses in the third quarter 2023 were up 3.5% year-over-year primarily from higher insurance costs, during the quarter we received favorable real estate tax valuations in Chicago largely offsetting the impact of the prior unfavorable real estate tax valuation in Miami, which has since been successfully appealed.
  • NOI in the third quarter 2023 was $27.0 million, up 7.6% year-over-year. Aimco raised full year 2023 NOI guidance by more than 100 basis points at the midpoint, to a range of 9.00% to 9.75%.

Balance Sheet and Financing Activity

Aimco is highly focused on maintaining a strong balance sheet, including ample liquidity at all times. As of September 30, 2023, Aimco had access to $320.2 million, including $95.7 million of cash on hand, $20.2 million of restricted cash, $54.3 million in a short-term treasury investment, and the capacity to borrow up to $150.0 million on its revolving credit facility.

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

  as of September 30, 2023 
Proportionate, $ in thousands Amount  Weighted Avg.
Maturity (Yrs.) [1]
Total non-recourse fixed rate debt $777,480   7.4 
Total non-recourse floating rate debt  101,154   1.6 
Total non-recourse construction loan debt  238,800   2.1 
Cash and restricted cash [2]  (114,469)   
Net Leverage $1,002,965    
[1]Weighted average maturities presented exclude contractual extension rights.
[2]On September 30, 2023, Aimco had $54.3 million invested in a four-month treasury bill that was excluded from cash in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

As of September 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 $19.9 million, or less than 2% of its total debt, maturing over the next 30 months.

Aimco Credit Facility

  • In October, subsequent to quarter end, Aimco exercised an option to extend the duration of its revolving credit facility for twelve months. Aimco will now retain the capacity to borrow up to $150.0 million through December 2024 and has one remaining 12-month extension option.

Public Market Equity

Common Stock Repurchases

  • In the third quarter, Aimco repurchased 1.7 million shares of its common stock at a weighted average price of $7.52 per share. In 2023, through October 31, Aimco repurchased more than 5.3 million shares of its common stock at a weighted average price of approximately $7.40 per share.
  • Subsequent to quarter end, the Aimco Board of Directors increased the number of shares authorized for repurchase to 30 million, doubling the size of the Board’s previous authorization.

Commitment to Enhance Stockholder Value

  • The Aimco Board of Directors, in coordination with management, remains intently focused on maximizing and unlocking value for Aimco stockholders. During the ongoing review, the Board continues to engage regularly with several leading advisory firms, including Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, to review current market conditions.

Aimco believes it is well positioned for long term growth given 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 broad strategic action to unlock stockholder value will take into consideration a host of factors, including the health and stability of both the financial and capital markets.

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.
