Company Release - 2/8/2024

– Leasing Demand Accelerates; Largest Sequential Quarterly Occupancy Gain in Over 15 Years –
– Small Shop Occupancy Reaches Record High –
– Company Provides Initial 2024 Outlook –

Kimco Realty® (NYSE: KIM), North America’s largest publicly listed owner and operator of open-air, grocery-anchored shopping centers and a growing portfolio of mixed-use assets, today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023. For the three months ended December 31, 2023 and 2022, Kimco’s Net income/(loss) available to the company’s common shareholders per diluted share was $0.22 and ($0.09), respectively. For full year 2023 and 2022, Net income available to the company’s common shareholders per diluted share was $1.02 and $0.16, respectively.

Fourth Quarter Highlights

  • Reported Funds From Operations* (FFO) of $0.39 per diluted share.
  • Achieved pro-rata portfolio occupancy of 96.2%, representing a 70-basis-point sequential increase, the largest in over 15 years.
  • Increased pro-rata occupancy for anchors to 98.0% and small shop to an all-time company record of 91.7%.
  • Signed 1.0 million square feet of new leases, which is the highest quarterly level in over 10 years.
  • Generated pro-rata cash rent spreads for new leases of 24.0% on comparable spaces, including four former Bed Bath & Beyond spaces with a blended, pro-rata rent increase of 57%.
  • Produced 3.2% growth in Same-Property Net Operating Income* (NOI) over the same period a year ago.
  • Subsequent to quarter end, completed the acquisition of RPT Realty (”RPT”) in January 2024.

“We ended the year with strong results, including leasing an impressive 2.7 million square feet, and achieving positive net absorption and double-digit leasing spreads for the quarter,” said Kimco CEO Conor Flynn. “The lack of new supply and continued strong demand for our high-quality, grocery-anchored, and mixed-use portfolio bodes well for 2024. And with the completion of the RPT acquisition, our best-in-class team is already working to unlock additional growth and long-term value for our shareholders.”

*Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure are provided in the tables accompanying this press release.

Financial Results

Fourth Quarter 2023

Net income available to the company’s common shareholders was $133.4 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to Net (loss) available to the company’s common shareholders of ($56.1) million, or ($0.09) per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2022. Included in the year-over-year change was a $103.9 million benefit from mark-to-market gains on marketable securities, net, primarily stemming from a change in the value of Albertsons Companies, Inc. (NYSE: ACI) common stock held by the company, as well as a $57.9 million decrease in provision for income taxes, net, primarily related to capital gains from the monetization of 11.5 million shares of ACI during the fourth quarter of 2022.

FFO was $239.4 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, compared to $234.9 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2022. FFO for the fourth quarter of 2023 included $1.0 million of merger-related charges. The company excludes from FFO all realized or unrealized marketable securities gains and losses. Also excluded from FFO are gains and losses from the sale of operating properties, real estate-related depreciation, profit participations from other investments, and other items considered incidental to the company’s operating business.

Full Year 2023

Net income available to the company’s common shareholders was $629.3 million, or $1.02 per diluted share, compared to $100.8 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, for the full year 2022. The year-over-year increase included a $336.8 million benefit from mark-to-market gains on marketable securities, net, primarily stemming from an increase in the value of ACI common stock held by the company and a special cash dividend of $194.1 million received from ACI in 2023.

FFO was $970.0 million, or $1.57 per diluted share, compared to $976.4 million, or $1.58 per diluted share, for the full year 2022.

Fourth Quarter Operating Results

  • Executed 480 leases totaling 2.7 million square feet, generating blended pro-rata cash rent spreads on comparable spaces of 11.2%, with spreads for new leases up 24.0% and renewals and options growing 7.8%.
  • Pro-rata portfolio occupancy ended the quarter at 96.2%, an increase of 50 basis points year-over-year and up 70 basis points sequentially.
  • Pro-rata anchor occupancy ended the quarter at 98.0%, flat year-over-year and up 80 basis points sequentially. The sequential increase represents the largest quarterly gain in over a decade.
  • Pro-rata small shop occupancy reached 91.7%, up 170 basis points year-over-year and an increase of 60 basis points sequentially.
  • Reported a 350-basis-point spread between leased (reported) occupancy versus economic occupancy at the end of the fourth quarter, representing approximately $57 million in anticipated future annual base rent.
  • Grew Same-Property NOI 3.2% over the same period a year ago, driven by a 3.1% increase in minimum rent. For the full year, Same-Property NOI was up 2.4%.

Fourth Quarter Transactional Activities

  • Acquired an improved parcel at an existing shopping center for $7.8 million.
  • Provided $12.8 million of mezzanine financing on a grocery-anchored shopping center under the company’s structured investment program.
  • Sold five shopping centers and one land parcel, in separate transactions, totaling approximately 846,000 square feet for $141.7 million. The company’s pro-rata share of the aggregate sales price was $54.3 million.

Capital Market Activities

  • Ended the fourth quarter with $2.8 billion of immediate liquidity, including full availability on the $2.0 billion unsecured revolving credit facility and $783.8 million of cash and cash equivalents on the balance sheet.
  • At the end of year, held 14.2 million shares of ACI common stock. Subsequently, Kimco sold all 14.2 million shares at a net price of $21.05 per share resulting in $299.1 million of proceeds. The company will record a provision for income taxes of approximately $75 million during the first quarter of 2024. The company excludes from FFO all realized or unrealized marketable securities gains and losses.
  • Subsequent to year end, repaid $246.9 million principal amount of 4.45% notes due January 2024. The effective interest rate of the notes was 1.10%, which included the impact of the fair market value (FMV) amortization which reduced interest expense.
  • In January 2024, Kimco’s board of directors approved the extension of the company’s common stock share repurchase program for up to $300 million shares of the company’s common stock, of which $224.9 million remains available, to February 28, 2026. In addition, the board of directors authorized a repurchase program for the company’s depositary shares representing one-thousandth of a share of (i) its 5.125% Class L Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, par value $1.00 per share (the “Class L Preferred Stock”) and/or, (ii) its 5.250% Class M Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, par value $1.00 per share (the “Class M Preferred Stock”) and/or (iii) its 7.250% Class N Cumulative Convertible Perpetual Preferred Stock, par value $1.00 per share (the “Class N Preferred Stock) through February 28, 2026.

  • Paid off $130.0 million outstanding on RPT’s unsecured revolving credit facility, which was subsequently terminated.

(1)

The company considers FFO to be an important supplemental measure of its operating performance and believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting results. Comparison of the company's presentation of FFO to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in the application of the Nareit definition used by such REITs.

(2)

Related to gains, impairments, depreciation on properties, and gains/(losses) on sales of marketable securities, where applicable.

(3)

Reflects the potential impact if certain units were converted to common stock at the beginning of the period. FFO available to the company’s common shareholders would be increased by $763 and $584 for the three months ended December 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. FFO available to the company's common shareholders would be increased by $2,395 and $2,041 for the year ended December 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

(4)

Includes Early extinguishment of debt charges of $7.7 million recognized during the year ended December 31, 2022.

(5)

Includes merger-related charges of $1.0 million and $4.8 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2023, respectively. In addition, includes income related to the liquidation of the pension plan of $5.0 million, net for the year ended December 31, 2023.

(1)

The company considers Same Property NOI as an important operating performance measure because it is frequently used by securities analysts and investors to measure only the net operating income of properties that have been owned by the company for the entire current and prior year reporting periods. It excludes properties under redevelopment, development and pending stabilization; properties are deemed stabilized at the earlier of (i) reaching 90% leased or (ii) one year following a project’s inclusion in operating real estate. Same Property NOI assists in eliminating disparities in net income due to the development, acquisition or disposition of properties during the particular period presented, and thus provides a more consistent performance measure for the comparison of the company's properties. The company’s method of calculating Same Property NOI may differ from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs.
