Optibase Ltd. : Announces Fourth Quarter Results

Apr 28, 2021

04/28/2021 | 09:02am EDT Message : *Required fields HERZLIYA, Israel, April 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Optibase Ltd. (NASDAQ: OBAS) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2020. Revenues from fixed income real estate totaled $3.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 compared to revenues of $4 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. Net loss attributable to Optibase Ltd shareholders for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 was $625,000 or $0.12 per basic and diluted share compared to net loss of $1.1 million or $0.21 per basic and diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2019. For the year ended December 31, 2020 revenues totaled $14.9 million compared to revenues of $16.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2019. Net income attributable to Optibase Ltd Shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $6.4 or $1.24 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2 million or $0.38 per basic and diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2019. Weighted average shares outstanding used in the calculation for the periods were approximately 5.2 million basic and diluted shares for each period. As of December 31, 2020, we had cash and cash equivalents of $28.8 million, and shareholders' equity of $86.7 million, compared with $12.6 million, and $71.8 million, respectively, as of December 31, 2019. Amir Philips, Chief Executive Officer of Optibase commented on the fourth quarter results: "This quarter our fixed income real estate rent has decreased compared to the fourth quarter of 2019 mainly due to the sale of our portfolio in Germany comprised of twenty-seven (27) separate commercial properties for a total consideration of EUR 35 million (approximately $38.9 million). Our net loss has decreased compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. The decrease in our net loss is mostly attributed to a decrease in our Equity share in losses of associates, net, related to our investment in 300 River Holdings, LLC, a decrease in our financial expenses and a decrease in our general and administrative expenses. For the fourth quarter of 2020, we generated NOI of $2.9 million representing a decrease compared to the fourth quarter of 2019 mainly due to a decrease in our operating income, due to a decrease in our fixed income real estate rent, an increase in our real estate depreciation, amortization and impairment offset by a decrease in our general and administrative expenses. For the year ended December 31, 2020, we generated NOI of $12.3 million representing a decrease compared to the year ended December 31, 2019, and net income of $6.4 million attributed to Optibase Ltd. compared to a net loss of $2 million to the year ended December 31, 2019, mainly due to the sale of portfolio in Germany. In addition, for the year ended December 31, 2020, our Recurring FFO increased to $4.7 million compared to Recurring FFO of $4.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2019. The increase in our Recurring FFO is due to a decrease in our operating costs, general and administrative expenses and financial expenses offset by a decrease in our fixed income from real estate rent. Mr. Philips concluded: "We continue our work to maintain our basic parameters and to increase our financial stability as we progress into 2021." ACCOUNTING AND OTHER DISCLOSURES Non-GAAP Net Operating Income, or NOI, is a non-GAAP financial measure. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is operating income, which, to calculate NOI, is adjusted to add back real estate depreciation, and amortization, general and administrative expenses and other operation expenses less gain on sale of operating properties. We use NOI internally as a performance measure and believe that NOI (when combined with the primary GAAP presentations) provides useful information to investors regarding our financial condition and results of operations because it reflects only those income and expense item that are incurred at the property level. We consider the NOI to be an appropriate supplemental non-GAAP measure to operating income because it assists management, and thereby investors, to understand the core property operations prior to depreciation and amortization expenses and general and administrative costs. In addition, because prospective buyers of real estate have different overhead structures, with varying marginal impact to overhead by acquiring real estate, we consider the NOI to be a useful measure for determining the value of a real estate asset or groups of assets. The metric NOI should only be considered as supplemental to the metric operating income as a measure of our performance. NOI should not be used as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions. NOI should also not be used as a supplement to, or substitute for, cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States). Non-GAAP Funds from operation, or FFO, is a non-GAAP financial measure. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is net income, which, to calculate FFO, is adjusted to add back depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated associates. We make certain adjustments to FFO, which it refers to as Non-GAAP recurring FFO or recurring FFO, to account for items we do not believe are representative of ongoing operating results, including transaction costs associated with acquisitions. We use FFO internally as a performance measure and we believe FFO (when combined with the primary GAAP presentations) is a useful, supplemental measure of our operating performance as it's a recognized metric used extensively by the real estate industry. We also believe that Recurring FFO is a useful, supplemental measure of our core operating performance. The company believes that financial analysts, investors and shareholders are better served by the presentation of operating results generated from its FFO and Recurring FFO measures. We consider the FFO and Recurring FFO to be an appropriate supplemental non-GAAP measure to operating income because it assists management, and thereby investors, in analyzing our operating performance. The metric's FFO and Recurring FFO should only be considered as supplemental to the metric net income as a measure of our performance. FFO (i) does not represent cash flow from operations as defined by GAAP, (ii) is not indicative of cash available to fund all cash flow needs, including the ability to make distributions, (iii) is not an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity, and (iv) should not be considered as an alternative to net income (which is determined in accordance with GAAP) for purposes of evaluating our operating performance.
