Highlights of Fiscal Year 2023:

  • Acquired properties: Purchased five fully-occupied properties, with an aggregate of approximately 0.3 million square feet of rental space, for $29.5 million, at a weighted average cap rate of 9.56%;
  • Sold properties: Sold seven non-core properties as part of our capital recycling strategy for $39.6 million;
  • Collected 100% of 2023 base rent: Collected 100% of 2023 base rental charges owed to us throughout the year;
  • Issued common stock under ATM Program: Issued 0.2 million shares for net proceeds of $4.1 million;
  • Issued Series F Preferred Stock: Issued 246,775 shares of our 6.00% Series F Preferred Stock for net proceeds of $5.6 million;
  • Issued new debt: Borrowed $9.0 million in fixed rate mortgage debt at a weighted average interest rate of 6.1%, all with maturity dates of September 1, 2028;
  • Repaid debt: Repaid $58.9 million in fixed rate mortgage debt, with a weighted average interest rate of 4.7%, with cash on hand and borrowings from our line of credit;
  • Extended mortgage debt maturity date: Extended the maturity date of $8.8 million fixed rate note for an additional year;
  • Leased vacant space: Leased 40,041 square feet of previously vacant space with lease terms ranging from 5.4 to 10.0 years at two of our properties;
  • Renewed leases: Renewed 1,388,789 square feet with remaining lease terms ranging from 3.3 to 18.7 years at 12 of our properties;

Fourth Quarter 2023 Results: FFO available to common shareholders and Non-controlling OP Unitholders for the quarter ended December 31, 2023, was $14.6 million, a 10.1% increase when compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2023, equaling $0.36 per share. Core FFO available to common shareholders and Non-controlling OP Unitholders for the quarter ended December 31, 2023, was $14.6 million, a 6.4% increase when compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2023, equaling $0.36 per share. Core FFO increased primarily due to a decrease in property operating expenses from successful real estate tax appeals.

Fiscal Year 2023 Results: FFO available to common stockholders and Non-controlling OP Unitholders for the year ended December 31, 2023, was $59.2 million, a 3.1% decrease when compared to the year ended December 31, 2022, equaling $1.46 per share. Core FFO available to common stockholders and Non-controlling OP Unitholders for the year ended December 31, 2023, was $59.9 million, a 3.1% decrease when compared to the year ended December 31, 2022, equaling $1.47 per share. Core FFO decreased primarily due to more accelerated rental income from lease terminations in the prior period and rental income from properties that went vacant in 2023, coupled with an increase in SOFR rates on variable rate debt resulting in a higher interest expense. This was partially offset by the Incentive Fee being contractually eliminated for all quarters in 2023, reducing operating expenses.

Net income (loss) available (attributable) to common stockholders and Non-controlling OP Unitholders for the three months and year ended December 31, 2023 was $1.3 million and $(7.8) million, or $0.03 and $(0.19) per share, respectively, compared to net loss attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and year ended December 31, 2022 of $1.4 million and $1.6 million, or $0.04 and $0.04 per share, respectively. A reconciliation of Core FFO to net income (loss) for the three months ended December 31, 2023 and September 30, 2023 and the years ended December 31, 2023 and 2022, which we believe is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to Core FFO, and a computation of basic and diluted Core FFO per weighted average share of common stock and Non-controlling OP Unit and basic and diluted net income per weighted average share of common stock and Non-controlling OP Unit is set forth in the Summary Information table above.

Subsequent to the end of the quarter:

  • Issued Series F Preferred Stock: Issued 7,580 shares for net proceeds of $0.2 million;
  • Sold properties: Sold one non-core property as part of our capital recycling strategy for $4.5 million; and
  • Declared distributions: Declared monthly cash distributions for January, February, and March 2024, totaling $0.30 per share on our common stock and Non-controlling OP Units, $0.414063 per share on our Series E Preferred Stock, $0.375 per share on our Series F Preferred Stock, $0.375 per share on our Series G Preferred Stock, and $0.2625 per share on our senior common stock.

Comments from Gladstone Commercial's President, Buzz Cooper: "Our financial results reflect consistent performance and stabilized revenues from our tremendous same store property occupancy, rent collection and growth, accretive real estate investments made during 2023 and 2022, and our ability to renew tenants, as well as our deleveraging and capital recycling programs. We believe we had an excellent 2023, by investing $29.5 million in five assets, all but one industrial, in our target markets at accretive cap rates. We have continued our capital recycling program, whereby we have sold non-core assets and used the proceeds to de-lever our portfolio, as well as acquire properties in our target growth markets. We successfully exited seven non-core assets during 2023, recognizing a capital gain of $7.7 million, and we have additional non-core assets we anticipate selling over the next one to two years that we believe will result in capital gains. We will continue to opportunistically sell non-core assets and redeploy the proceeds into stronger target growth markets with a focus on industrial investment opportunities. While we expect to face challenges due to the lingering effects of the pandemic, significant inflation with a corresponding increase in interest rates, and the geo-political and economic issues arising from the war in Ukraine, we feel strongly about the depth of our tenant credit underwriting. We have collected 100% of 2023 cash rents. We anticipate our tenants will successfully navigate the current economic climate and will be able to continue operating successfully when any remaining pandemic restrictions are fully lifted and economic normalcy returns. Despite economic uncertainty, during 2023, we were able to lease 40,041 vacant square feet with two tenants and renew 1,388,789 square feet with 13 tenants. We are actively marketing our remaining vacant space and anticipate positive outcomes. We have amended our credit facility to add a new term loan component, and we increased our revolver, which we believe will be a great source of financial flexibility in these uncertain markets. We expect to continue to have access to the debt and equity markets, as necessary, for added liquidity and are extremely pleased with our solid performance over the last several years. We believe our same store rents, which have increased by approximately 2% annually in recent years, should continue to rise as we grow, and we will continue to primarily focus on investing in our target markets, with an emphasis on industrial properties and actively managing our portfolio."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

FFO: The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") developed FFO as a relative non-GAAP supplemental measure of operating performance of an equity REIT in order to recognize that income-producing real estate historically has not depreciated on the basis determined under GAAP. FFO, as defined by NAREIT, is net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property and impairment losses on property, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. FFO does not represent cash flows from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of its performance or to cash flow from operations as a measure of liquidity or ability to make distributions. The Company believes that FFO per share and unit provides investors with an additional context for evaluating its financial performance and as a supplemental measure to compare it to other REITs; however, comparisons of its FFO to the FFO of other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to potential differences in the application of the NAREIT definition used by such other REITs.

FFO as adjusted for comparability: FFO as adjusted for comparability is FFO adjusted for certain items that are not indicative of the results provided by the Company's operating portfolio and affect the comparability of the Company's period-over-period performance. These items include the adjustment for non-recurring expense adjustments related to the write off of offering costs pertaining to redeemed securities. Although the Company's calculation of FFO as adjusted for comparability differs from NAREIT's definition of FFO and may not be comparable to that of other REITs, the Company believes it is a meaningful supplemental measure of its operating performance. Accordingly, FFO as adjusted for comparability should be considered a supplement to net income computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of our performance.

Core FFO: Core FFO is FFO adjusted for certain items that are not indicative of the results provided by the Company's operating portfolio and affect the comparability of the Company's period-over-period performance. These items include the adjustment for acquisition related expenses, gains or losses from early extinguishment of debt and any other non-recurring expense adjustments. Although the Company's calculation of Core FFO differs from NAREIT's definition of FFO and may not be comparable to that of other REITs, the Company believes it is a meaningful supplemental measure of its operating performance. Accordingly, Core FFO should be considered a supplement to net income computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of our performance.

The Company's presentation of FFO, as defined by NAREIT, FFO as adjusted for comparability, or presentation of Core FFO, does not represent cash flows from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of its performance or to cash flow from operations as a measure of liquidity or ability to make distributions.

The statements in this press release regarding the forecasted stability of Gladstone Commercial's income, its ability, plans or prospects to re-lease its unoccupied properties, and grow its portfolio are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements inherently involve certain risks and uncertainties, although they are based on Gladstone Commercial's current plans that are believed to be reasonable as of the date of this press release. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, Gladstone Commercial's ability to raise additional capital; availability and terms of capital and financing, both to fund its operations and to refinance its indebtedness as it matures; downturns in the current economic environment; the performance of its tenants; the impact of competition on its efforts to renew existing leases or re-lease space; and significant changes in interest rates. Additional factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those stated or implied by its forward-looking statements are disclosed under the caption "Risk factors" of its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023, as filed with the SEC on February 21, 2024. Gladstone Commercial cautions readers not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. Gladstone Commercial undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.
