Company Release – 11/09/2021
DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Apartment Investment and Management Company (“Aimco”) (NYSE: AIV) announced today third quarter results for 2021.
Wes Powell, Aimco President and Chief Executive Officer, comments: “The Aimco team is executing well across our various lines of business. Development and Redevelopment projects currently in lease-up are tracking ahead of plan, especially in South Florida where demand for luxury apartment homes continues to far outpace expectations. Despite supply chain pressures and rising costs, Aimco projects which are under construction remain on-time and on-budget thanks to our disciplined process and proactive management. All the while, the Aimco investment pipeline continues to expand and top-line growth within our stabilized operating portfolio is accelerating. These solid results are a testament to the Aimco platform.”
Financial Results and Recent Highlights
- Net loss attributable to common stockholders per share, on a dilutive basis, was $(0.03) for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to net income per share of $0.01 for the same period in 2020, due primarily to differences from the carve-out of Aimco predecessor prior year expenses.
- Aimco Total Shareholder Return was 43.6% year-to-date through October 2021.
- Strong demand for Aimco’s Development and Redevelopment projects resulted in the execution of approximately 150 net new leases during the period, at rental rates ahead of target, and contributed $3.2 million in revenue during the period, up nearly 30% from the second quarter.
- Aimco has re-opened Flamingo Point’s North Tower, welcoming new residents to the fully renovated waterfront community during the third quarter as planned.
- Aimco acquired, for $40 million, a collection of 58 luxury townhomes in Elmhurst, Illinois, and benefits from the community’s adjacency to an existing Aimco asset.
- Aimco closed $60 million of property financing and ended the third quarter with $413 million of liquidity, including cash and capacity on its revolving credit facility.
- Revenue from Aimco’s Operating Properties was up 3.8% from the second quarter and 6.9% year-over-year, with occupancy of 97.8%, up 280 basis points year-over-year.
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 where 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.
In the third quarter, Aimco had eight active development and redevelopment projects located in five different markets across the United States. These projects remain on track, as evidenced by project-level budget and schedule, lease-up metrics, and current market valuations.In the third quarter, Aimco invested approximately $42 million at these projects and expects to invest another $374 million at properties currently in development and redevelopment.
- At the North Tower of Flamingo Point in Miami Beach, Florida, the delivery and occupancy of apartment homes began in the third quarter as planned. Demand has been strong with the property more than 50% leased or preleased, six months prior to final completion, at rental rates approximately 25% ahead of underwriting.
- At 707 Leahy in Redwood City, California, stabilized occupancy was achieved during the third quarter slightly earlier than planned, with the property 97% leased on September 30, 2021, at rates meeting underwritten expectations.
- At Prism in Cambridge, Massachusetts, construction was completed during the first quarter of 2021 and on September 30, 2021, the property was 88% occupied at rents trending in line with our underwritten targets.
- Construction continues on schedule and on budget at The Benson Hotel and Faculty Club in Aurora, Colorado, Hamilton on the Bay in Miami, Florida and Oak Shore (fka. Robin Drive Land) in Corte Madera, California.
Aimco uses alternative investment strategies when it has special knowledge or expertise relevant to the venture and when opportunity exists for positive asymmetric outcomes. Aimco’s current investments include a mezzanine loan with an option to participate in future development and two passive equity investments.
- In the third quarter, Aimco funded a capital call of $12.1 million associated with the previously announced $50 million total passive equity commitment to the life sciences developer, IQHQ, bringing our total investment to $24.6 million.
- The outstanding balance on Aimco’s mezzanine loan to the partnership that owns Parkmerced Apartments was $330 million, including accrued interest, at the end of the third quarter. Property operations remain consistent with previous reports.
Aimco expects to have a broad set of investment opportunities including, but not limited to, development, redevelopment, portfolio acquisitions, programmatic joint ventures, debt placements, operational turnarounds, and re-entitlements. During the third quarter:
- Aimco acquired, for $40 million, Eldridge Townhomes, a 58-unit townhome community located in Elmhurst, Illinois that Aimco developed between 2018 and 2020. As of September 30, 2021, the property was 98% occupied with average rents of greater than $4,000 per month. The Eldridge Townhomes are located adjacent to an existing 400-unit Aimco community and the acquisition provides for continued operational efficiencies and improved NOI margins. Aimco plans to hold the Eldridge Townhomes within its portfolio of stabilized operating properties.
- Aimco acquired two properties adjacent to its Hamilton on the Bay apartment community in Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood, for $7 million. Combined with the six properties purchased in the second quarter and land purchased as part of the initial acquisition of Hamilton on the Bay, Aimco can, in total, now construct more than 1.1M square feet of new development in this rapidly growing submarket.
- Aimco entered into a joint venture with Kushner Companies to purchase three undeveloped land parcels located in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The total contract price for the land is $49 million ($25 million at Aimco’s 51% share), and current zoning allows for the development of approximately three million square feet of multifamily homes and commercial space. The land purchase is expected to close in January 2022.
- Aimco purchased seven acres of developable land in Colorado Springs, Colorado with a contract price of $4 million that allows for the construction of 119 apartment homes and townhomes.
