Same Asset NOI(1) from Allied’s rental portfolio was up 0.9% while Same Asset NOI from its total portfolio was up 6.4%. Leasing Activity Knowledge-based organizations continue to prefer distinctive workspace in amenity-rich urban neighbourhoods in Canada’s major cities. As a result, demand for Allied’s workspace across the country continues to be evident and quantifiable. Allied conducted 306 lease tours in its rental portfolio in the third quarter, up from 292 in the prior quarter, despite seasonally slower leasing activity in the summer months. Allied’s occupied and leased area at the end of the quarter was 86.8% and 87.6%, respectively. Allied leased a total of 358,812 square feet of GLA in the third quarter, 321,674 square feet in its rental portfolio and 37,138 square feet in its development portfolio. Of the 321,674 square feet Allied leased in its rental portfolio, 90,200 square feet was vacant space, 92,761 square feet was space maturing in the quarter and 138,713 square feet was space maturing after the quarter. Advertisement 3 Article content Average in-place net rent per occupied square foot continued to rise in the third quarter, reaching $23.78 at quarter-end. Allied continued to achieve rent increases on renewal (up 3.8% ending-to-starting base rent and up 10% average-to-average base rent). ______________________________________________________________________________ (1) This is a non-GAAP measure and includes the results of the continuing operations and the discontinued operations (except for Same Asset NOI, which only includes continuing operations). Refer to the Non-GAAP Measures section below. Leasing highlights in Allied’s rental portfolio for the third quarter include the following: renewal (34,818 square feet) and expansion (6,668 square feet) for Rose Rocket at 35-45 Front Street East in Toronto; lease of 21,954 square feet to Crowe MacKay LLP at 1185 West Georgia in Vancouver; renewal of 11,713 square feet for Restoration Hardware at 1508-1580 West Broadway in Vancouver; lease of 11,373 square feet to First Nations Justice Council at Sun Tower in Vancouver; lease of 11,084 square feet to BinSentry at The Tannery in Kitchener; and lease of 25,000 square feet of retail space to Compass Group Canada at 747 Square Victoria in Montréal, initiating a planned large-scale transformation of the historic ground level of the property. Top Stories Article content Leasing highlights in Allied’s development portfolio for the third quarter include the following: lease of an additional 10,552 square feet for a total of 64,656 square feet to a global electronics and entertainment organization at Tour Viger in Montréal; lease of 9,742 square feet to Anytime Fitness at 1001 Boulevard Robert-Bourassa in Montréal; and lease of 8,000 square feet to Landr at 1001 Boulevard Robert-Bourassa in Montréal. Management expects sustained and successful leasing activity for the remainder of 2023 and into 2024. Capital-Allocation Plan Allied closed the sale of its Urban Data Centre (“UDC”) portfolio in the third quarter for $1.35 billion. Allied used $755 million of the proceeds to repay all amounts drawn on its unsecured credit facility and set aside $200 million of the proceeds to repay a secured promissory note payable on December 31, 2023, and another $49 million to repay its remaining first mortgages on fully owned properties in 2024. Allied will use the balance of the proceeds to fund its development and upgrade activity over the remainder of 2023 and beyond. Advertisement 5 Article content Reaffirmation of Mission Allied is an owner-operator of distinctive urban workspace in Canada’s major cities. Allied’s mission is to serve knowledge-based organizations ever more successfully over time. The sale of the UDC portfolio enabled Allied to reaffirm and focus more intently on its core mission, which is predicated on ongoing urban intensification in Canada’s major cities. Over the past two decades, Allied assembled the largest and most concentrated portfolio of economically-productive, underutilized urban land in Canada (frequently referred to today as “covered land”), one that affords extraordinary mixed-use intensification potential in major cities going forward. Allied believes in the continued growth and success of Canadian cities. Balance Sheet, Liquidity and Development Allied has demonstrated commitment to the balance sheet over its life as a public real estate entity. With the completion of the sale of the UDC portfolio and the utilization of the proceeds as described above, Allied’s net debt as a multiple of Annualized Adjusted EBITDA(2) at the end of the third quarter was 7.9x. Allied also expects that its net debt as a multiple of Annualized Adjusted EBITDA will decline over the next three years as developments are completed and begin to generate material amounts of EBITDA. Advertisement 6 Article content Allied is nearing completion of the development and upgrade activity to which it is committed and does not expect to initiate new acquisition or development activity in the near-term. Accordingly, Allied does not expect to use its unsecured credit facility to any material extent in the coming five years, with the result that it will have up to $900 million in liquidity through most of that timeframe. Allied has a favourable debt-maturity schedule and an unencumbered, income-producing portfolio valued at $8.4 billion. In the third quarter, Allied transferred 365,413 square feet of GLA from its Properties Under Development (“PUD”) to its rental portfolio at average in-place net rent per square foot of $34.28, reducing the cost of PUD as a percentage of Gross Book Value (“GBV”)(2) to 11.6% at the end of the third quarter. This will add to Allied’s annual EBITDA run-rate by approximately $12 million from the beginning of 2024 onward. Allied will continue to transfer material amounts of GLA from its PUD to its rental portfolio over the remainder of 2023 and throughout 2024 and 2025. This will (i) reduce the cost of Allied’s PUD as a percentage of GBV to approximately 4.5% by the end of 2025, (ii) increase average in-place net rent per occupied square foot in Allied’s rental portfolio and (iii) add to Allied’s annual EBITDA run-rate by approximately $46 million from the beginning of 2026 onward. Advertisement 7 Article content Special Distribution The sale of the UDC portfolio will result in a significant increase in taxable income for fiscal 2023, requiring Allied to declare and pay a special distribution to unitholders of record on December 31, 2023. To assist taxable unitholders in funding the associated tax liability, Allied expects to pay approximately $65 million (which is approximately $0.47 per unit) of the special distribution in cash and the balance in units. Immediately following the special distribution, the outstanding units of Allied will be consolidated such that each unitholder will hold, after the consolidation, the same number of units as immediately prior to the special distribution. As a public real estate entity committed to distributing a large portion of free cash flow regularly, Allied has funded past growth primarily through equity issuance. The proceeds from the sale of the UDC portfolio will enable Allied to fund near-term growth, primarily in the form of upgrade and development completions, while maintaining high levels of liquidity and targeted debt-metrics. In the longer-term, Allied plans to take advantage of a broader range of funding opportunities than it has in the past. Regardless of how Allied funds growth going forward, it will remain fully committed to its distribution program. Advertisement 8 Article content (1) This measure is presented on an IFRS basis. (2) This is a non-GAAP measure and includes the results of the continuing operations and the discontinued operations. Refer to the Non-GAAP Measures section below. (3) Prior to Allied’s conversion to an open-end trust, net asset value per unit (“NAV per unit”) was calculated as total equity as at the corresponding period ended, divided by the actual number of Units and class B limited partnership units of Allied Properties Exchangeable Limited Partnership (“Exchangeable LP Units”) outstanding at period end. With Allied’s conversion to an open-end trust on June 12, 2023, NAV per unit is calculated as total equity plus the value of Exchangeable LP Units as at the corresponding period ended, divided by the actual number of Units and Exchangeable LP Units. The rationale for including the value of Exchangeable LP Units is because they are economically equivalent to Units, receive distributions equal to the distributions paid on the Units and are exchangeable, at the holder’s option, for Units. Non-GAAP Measures Management uses financial measures based on International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS” or “GAAP”) and non-GAAP measures to assess Allied’s performance. Non-GAAP measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS, and therefore, should not be construed as alternatives to net income or cash flow from operating activities calculated in accordance with IFRS. Refer to the Non-GAAP Measures section on page 17 of the MD&A as at September 30, 2023, available on www.sedarplus.ca, for an explanation of the composition of the non-GAAP measures used in this press release and their usefulness for readers in assessing Allied’s performance. Such explanation is incorporated by reference herein. Advertisement 12 Article content (1) These non-GAAP measures include the results of the continuing operations and the discontinued operations (except for Same Asset NOI – rental portfolio, which only includes continuing operations). The following tables reconcile the non-GAAP measures to the most comparable IFRS measures for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, and the comparable period in 2022. These terms do not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other publicly traded entities. The following table reconciles Allied’s net (loss) income and comprehensive (loss) income to Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and September 30, 2022. Article content (1) Includes Allied’s proportionate share of the equity accounted investment of the following amounts for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023: amortization improvement allowances of $164 and $491, respectively (September 30, 2022 – $158 and $449, respectively), and amortization of straight-line rent of $(49) and $(147), respectively (September 30, 2022 – $(102) and $(584), respectively). (2) Excludes the Urban Data Centre segment which was classified as a discontinued operation starting in Q4 2022. The prior period comparative figures have been revised accordingly. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, the Urban Data Centre segment’s amortization of improvement allowances was $65 and $326, respectively (September 30, 2022 – $134 and $404, respectively). For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, the Urban Data Centre segment’s amortization of straight-line rent was $(230) and $(695), respectively (September 30, 2022 – $(272) and $(396), respectively). Same Asset NOI, a non-GAAP measure, is measured as the net operating income for the properties that Allied owned and operated for the entire duration of both the current and comparative period. Same Asset NOI of the assets held for sale for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, consists of one investment property. Advertisement 16 Article content (1) Property, plant and equipment relates to owner-occupied property. (2) This amount represents interest expense on Allied’s joint venture investment in TELUS Sky and is not capitalized under IFRS, but is allowed as an adjustment under REALPAC’s definition of FFO. (3) The weighted average number of units includes Units and Exchangeable LP Units. The Exchangeable LP Units were re-classified from non-controlling interests in equity to liabilities in the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements on Allied’s conversion to an open-end trust on June 12, 2023.
