GREAT NECK, N.Y., Nov. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- One Liberty Properties, Inc. (NYSE: OLP), a real estate investment trust focused on net leased properties, today announced operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Operating Results:

Rental income was $20.3 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $21.1 million in the third quarter of 2020. The decrease is due primarily to the impact of property dispositions in 2020 and 2021.

Total operating expenses in the third quarter of 2021 improved to $12.4 million from $13.1 million for the third quarter of 2020. Contributing to the improvement were the inclusion, in the corresponding 2020 period, of a non-cash impairment charge related to a casualty loss, and, in the 2021 period, a reduction in litigation expense and a real estate tax refund, offset by, in the 2021 period, a non-cash increase in compensation expense related to equity incentive plan awards.

Net income attributable to One Liberty in the third quarter of 2021 was $6.1 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, compared to $13.7 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2020. Net income for the 2020 quarter benefitted from a $10.3 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, gain on the sale of a property. Net income for the 2021 quarter includes a $1.3 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, gain on the sale of a property.

Adjusted Funds from Operations, or AFFO1, was $10.1 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to $10.0 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, for the corresponding quarter in the prior year. In the 2021 quarter, AFFO, on an absolute basis benefitted from lower interest and real estate expense, offset by a reduction in rental income primarily related to property dispositions in 2020 and 2021.

Funds from Operations, or FFO, was $9.8 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $9.7 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2020. In the 2021 quarter, FFO benefitted from the decrease in interest and real estate expenses and an insurance recovery from a casualty loss, offset by a reduction in a rental income.

Net income, FFO and AFFO on a diluted per share basis were negatively impacted due to the 583,000 increase in the weighted average shares outstanding as a result of issuances of stock in- lieu-of a portion of the cash dividend and the equity incentive and dividend reinvestment programs.

_______________
1 A reconciliation of GAAP amounts to non-GAAP amounts (i.e., FFO and AFFO) is presented with the financial information included in this release.

Balance Sheet:

At September 30, 2021, the Company had $13.7 million of cash and cash equivalents, total assets of $752.0 million, total debt of $406.4 million, and total stockholders' equity of $304.2 million.

At November 1, 2021, One Liberty's available liquidity was approximately $105.2 million, including approximately $11.9 million of cash and cash equivalents (including the credit facility's required $3.0 million average deposit maintenance balance) and $93.3 million available under its credit facility.

Recent Transactions:

On September 29, 2021, One Liberty acquired a 103,000 square foot industrial property in Lehigh Acres, a suburb of Fort Myers, Florida, for a purchase price of $9.4 million, including a ten-year fixed rate (i.e., 3.17%) mortgage of $6.1 million. The property is leased to two tenants and the remaining average lease term is four years.

One Liberty anticipates that in November it will complete the purchase, for $8.0 million, of a 102,000 square foot warehouse distribution center well-located near the main commercial airport in Omaha, Nebraska, and net leased to Home Depot USA, Inc, the primary operating company of The Home Depot. The property is leased at an annual base rent of $546,000.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

One Liberty computes FFO in accordance with the "White Paper on Funds from Operations" issued by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") and NAREIT's related guidance. FFO is defined in the White Paper as net income (calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles), excluding depreciation and amortization related to real estate, gains and losses from the sale of certain real estate assets, gains and losses from change in control, impairment write-downs of certain real estate assets and investments in entities where the impairment is directly attributable to decreases in the value of depreciable real estate held by the entity. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures are

calculated to reflect FFO on the same basis.

One Liberty computes AFFO by adjusting from FFO for straight-line rent accruals and amortization of lease intangibles, deducting lease termination and certain other fees and adding back amortization of restricted stock and restricted stock unit compensation expense, amortization of costs in connection with its financing activities (including its share of its unconsolidated joint ventures), income on insurance recoveries from casualties and debt prepayment costs. Since the NAREIT White Paper does not provide guidelines for computing AFFO, the computation of AFFO may vary from one REIT to another.

One Liberty believes that FFO and AFFO are useful and standard supplemental measures of the operating performance for equity REITs and are used frequently by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in evaluating equity REITs, many of which present FFO and AFFO when reporting their operating results. FFO and AFFO are intended to exclude GAAP historical

cost depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, which assumes that the value of real estate assets diminish predictability over time. In fact, real estate values have historically risen and fallen with market conditions. As a result, management believes that FFO and AFFO provide a performance measure that when compared year-over-year, should reflect the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, interest costs and other matters without the inclusion of depreciation and amortization, providing a perspective that may not be necessarily apparent from net income. Management also considers FFO and AFFO to be useful in evaluating potential property acquisitions.

FFO and AFFO do not represent net income or cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities as defined by GAAP. FFO and AFFO should not be an alternative to net income as a reliable measure of our operating performance nor as an alternative to cash flows as measures of liquidity. FFO and AFFO do not measure whether cash flow is sufficient to fund all of the Company's cash needs, including principal amortization, capital improvements and distributions to stockholders.

Forward Looking Statement:

Certain information contained in this press release, together with other statements and information publicly disseminated by One Liberty Properties, Inc. is forward looking within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. We intend such forward looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provision for forward looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and include this statement for the purpose of complying with these safe harbor provisions. You should not rely on forward looking statements since they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which are, in some cases, beyond our control and which could materially affect actual results, performance or achievements. Information regarding risks, uncertainties and factors that could cause actual outcomes or other events to differ materially from any such forward looking statements appear under “Forward Looking Statements”, “Risk Factors” or “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 (the “Annual Report”), and the Company’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q or the Company’s Current Reports on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) filed after the filing of the Annual Report. Currently, a significant uncertainty the Company is facing is the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact, and potential impact, on the Company’s and its tenants’ financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and performance, the real estate market and the global economy and financial markets. The extent to which the pandemic impacts the Company and its tenants depends on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence.
