SECOND QUARTER 2022 HIGHLIGHTS

Highlights for the three month period ended June 30, 2022, including events subsequent to the quarter, are set out below:

Financial:

  • Granite’s net operating income (“NOI”) was $92.8 million in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $80.3 million in the prior year period, an increase of $12.5 million primarily as a result of net acquisition activity beginning in the second quarter of 2021;
  • Same property NOI – cash basis(4) increased by 3.6% for the three month period ended June 30, 2022, excluding the impact of foreign exchange;
  • Funds from operations (“FFO”)(1) was $72.1 million ($1.09 per unit) in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $62.2 million ($0.99 per unit) in the second quarter of 2021;
  • Adjusted funds from operations (“AFFO”)(2) was $68.2 million ($1.04 per unit) in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $60.1 million ($0.96 per unit) in the second quarter of 2021;
  • AFFO payout ratio(3) was 75% for the second quarter of 2022 compared to 79% in the second quarter of 2021;
  • Granite recognized $251.3 million in net fair value losses on investment properties in the second quarter of 2022 which were attributable to various factors including the expansion in discount and terminal capitalization rates across all of Granite’s markets in response to rising interest rates, partially offset by fair market rent increases across the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario (the “GTA”) and selective US and European markets reflecting current market fundamentals, as well as the fair value appreciation for certain of the Trust’s distribution/e-commerce properties. The value of investment properties was increased by unrealized foreign exchange gains of $86.3 million in the second quarter of 2022 resulting from the relative weakening of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar, partially offset by the strengthening of the Canadian dollar against the Euro as at June 30, 2022; and
  • Granite’s net loss in the second quarter of 2022 was $122.3 million in comparison to net income of $316.9 million in the prior year period primarily due to a $559.3 million increase in net fair value losses on investment properties, partially offset by a $12.5 million increase in net operating income as noted above and a $104.0 million increase in income tax recovery.

Investments:

During the second quarter of 2022, Granite completed the following new acquisitions:

102 Parkshore Dr., Brampton, Ontario

  • On May 24, 2022, Granite acquired a distribution facility located in Brampton, Ontario, comprising of 0.1 million square feet for total purchase price of $20.9 million. The property was acquired through a sale-leaseback for an initial term of 7 years, representing an in-going yield of 4.5% on the existing building. The low-site coverage ratio provides for significant future development potential. The property is well located within the GTA’s Brampton sub-market, with ease of access to the 400 series highways and is within 7 kilometers of Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.

195 Steinway Blvd., Etobicoke, Ontario

  • On May 26, 2022, Granite acquired a modern temperature-controlled distribution facility located in Etobicoke, Ontario, comprising of 0.1 million square feet for $17.7 million. The property was acquired through a sale-leaseback for an initial term of 15 years, representing an in-going yield of 5.0%. The 5.1 acre site contains excess land for which the tenant has a contractual expansion option for 0.03 million square feet, which will stabilize the property at a capitalization yield of approximately 5.9%. Fronting on Highway 427, the property benefits from immediate access to the 400 series highways and is within 10 kilometers of Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.

Subsequent to June 30, 2022, Granite closed on the previously announced acquisition:

Swaardvenstraat 75, Tilburg, Netherlands

  • On July 1, 2022, Granite took delivery and closed on the forward purchase acquisition of a 0.5 million square foot modern distribution facility located in Tilburg, Netherlands for $101.2 million (€75.3 million). The Class A facility is fully leased to a leading European small appliance producer for an initial term of 10 years and represents an in-going yield of 3.2%. The property is expected to receive BREEAM Excellent certification and is well located within the logistics hub of Tilburg, with close proximity to the motorways N261 and N260/A58. The recently developed Barge Terminal Tilburg offers daily shipments to Rotterdam, and the Railport Brabant has direct access to Central, Southern and Eastern Europe.

Operations:

  • On June 9, 2022, Granite completed the disposition of the income producing property located in the Czech Republic that was previously classified as held for sale, for gross proceeds of $31.5 million (€23.3 million);
  • Granite transferred properties under development in Altbach, Germany and Fort Worth, Texas with a combined fair value of $117.6 million to income producing properties, delivering approximately 0.9 million square feet of new GLA. The property in Altbach, Germany is partially leased to a third-party logistics operator for a 10.0 year term commencing July 1, 2022. The property in Fort Worth, Texas has been leased to a leading North American glassware provider commencing September 30, 2022 for approximately 10.3 years at a year-one stabilized yield of 6.8%;
  • Granite completed the approximately 0.1 million square foot temperature controlled expansion of its property at 2095 Logistics Drive in Mississauga, Ontario. The existing tenant of this space was granted occupancy on June 2, 2022 resulting in an incremental $0.8 million in rental revenue per year, representing a yield on cost of 7.7%;
  • As at June 30, 2022, two income producing properties located in Canada and the United States were classified as assets held for sale with a fair value of $156.2 million; and
  • During the quarter, Granite completed mass grading at its development site in Brantford, Ontario and subsequent to quarter end signed an approximate 20-year lease agreement with a leading manufacturer of chocolate and cocoa products for 0.4 million square feet, known as Building 1. This state-of-the-art distribution facility, expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2024, will have 40’ clear heights and will obtain third-party green building certification in accordance with Granite’s Green Bond Framework. The development is anticipated to generate a yield on cost of 6.5% at stabilization. In anticipation of the commencement of vertical construction of Building 1, Granite allocated 22.0 acres of the total 92.0 acre site from land held for development to a property under development.

Financing:

  • During the period between April 1, 2022 and April 29, 2022, Granite issued 120,300 stapled units under the ATM Program at an average stapled unit price of $98.84 for gross proceeds of $11.9 million and incurred issuance costs of $0.3 million, for net proceeds of $11.6 million; and
  • During the period between June 15, 2022 and July 4, 2022 Granite repurchased 448,400 stapled units under its Normal Course Issuer Bid (“NCIB”) at an average stapled unit cost of $78.90 for total consideration of $35.4 million, excluding commissions.

NON-IFRS MEASURES, RATIOS AND RECONCILIATIONS

Readers are cautioned that certain terms used in this press release such as FFO, AFFO, AFFO payout ratio, same property NOI – cash basis, total debt and net debt, net leverage ratio, available liquidity, and any related per unit amounts used by management to measure, compare and explain the operating results and financial performance of the Trust do not have standardized meanings prescribed under International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) and, therefore, should not be construed as alternatives to net income, cash provided by operating activities or any other measure calculated in accordance with IFRS. Additionally, because these terms do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS, they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other publicly traded entities.

(1)

FFO is a non-IFRS performance measure that is widely used by the real estate industry in evaluating the operating performance of real estate entities. Granite calculates FFO as net income attributable to stapled unitholders excluding fair value gains (losses) on investment properties and financial instruments, gains (losses) on sale of investment properties including the associated current income tax, deferred income taxes and certain other items, net of non-controlling interests in such items. The Trust’s determination of FFO follows the definition prescribed by the Real Estate Property Association of Canada (“REALPAC”) guidelines on Funds From Operations & Adjusted Funds From Operations for IFRS dated January 2022 (“REALPAC Guidelines”). Granite considers FFO to be a meaningful supplemental measure that can be used to determine the Trust’s ability to service debt, fund capital expenditures and provide distributions to stapled unitholders. FFO is reconciled to net income, which is the most directly comparable IFRS measure (see below). FFO should not be construed as an alternative to net income or cash flow generated from operating activities determined in accordance with IFRS.

(2)

AFFO is a non-IFRS performance measure that is widely used by the real estate industry in evaluating the recurring economic earnings performance of real estate entities after considering certain costs associated with sustaining such earnings. Granite calculates AFFO as net income attributable to stapled unitholders including all adjustments used to calculate FFO and further adjusts for actual maintenance capital expenditures that are required to sustain Granite’s productive capacity, leasing costs such as leasing commissions and tenant allowances incurred and non-cash straight-line rent and tenant incentive amortization, net of non-controlling interests in such items. The Trust’s determination of AFFO follows the definition prescribed by REALPAC’s Guidelines. Granite considers AFFO to be a meaningful supplemental measure that can be used to determine the Trust’s ability to service debt, fund expansion capital expenditures, fund property development and provide distributions to stapled unitholders after considering costs associated with sustaining operating earnings. AFFO is also reconciled to net income, which is the most directly comparable IFRS measure (see below). AFFO should not be construed as an alternative to net income or cash flow generated from operating activities determined in accordance with IFRS.

On June 9, 2022, amendments were made to the Granite’s Directors Deferred Stapled Unit (“DSU”) Plan to allow, at the discretion of the Compensation, Governance and Nominating Committee (the “CGN Committee”) for the DSUs to be settled in cash or stapled units at the time of redemption. Accordingly, from the amendment date of June 9, 2022, fair value remeasurement expense relating to the DSU Plan has been included as an add-back to FFO.

 

(3)

AFFO payout ratio is calculated as monthly distributions, which exclude special distributions, declared to unitholders divided by AFFO in a period. AFFO payout ratio may exclude revenue or expenses incurred during a period that can be a source of variance between periods. The AFFO payout ratio is a non-IFRS ratio widely used by analysts and investors in evaluating the sustainability of the Trust’s monthly distributions to stapled unitholders.

Same property NOI — cash basis refers to the NOI — cash basis (NOI excluding lease termination and close-out fees, and the non-cash impact from straight-line rent and tenant incentive amortization) for those properties owned by Granite throughout the entire current and prior year periods under comparison. Same property NOI — cash basis excludes properties that were acquired, disposed of, classified as properties under or held for development or assets held for sale during the periods under comparison. Granite believes that same property NOI — cash basis is a useful measure in understanding period-over-period organic changes in NOI — cash basis from the same stock of properties owned.
