See reconciliation of basic net income in the "Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Measures" section in this press release.

Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 was $958 million ($0.17 per LP unit) versus $92 million ($(0.08) per LP unit) for the same period in 2016. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $2.47 billion ($0.48 per LP unit) compared with $2.72 billion ($2.30 per LP unit) in 2016.

Company FFO was $286 million ($0.41 per unit) for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 compared with $268 million ($0.38 per unit) for the same period in 2016. Company FFO was $1.02 billion ($1.44 per unit) for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared with $967 million ($1.36 per unit) in 2016. The increase in Company FFO for the quarter and year is primarily attributable to same-property growth in our office operations and net investment activity.

Operating Highlights

Our core office operations generated Company FFO of $148 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 compared to $182 million in the same period in 2016 and $592 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to $630 million in 2016. The decreases are primarily attributable to a one-time development fee of $44 million recognized last year as well as the impact of asset sales and the deployment of capital raised into other businesses.  These decreases were partly offset by quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year same-property growth of 2.6% and 2.1%, respectively, and positive foreign exchange conversions. 

Occupancy in our core office portfolio increased 80 basis points during the fourth quarter, finishing the year at 92.6% on 2.9 million square feet of total leasing, bringing total 2017 leasing activity to 9.7 million square feet.  Leases signed in the fourth quarter were at average rents 33% higher than leases that expired in the period.

Our core retail operations generated Company FFO of $158 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 compared to $132 million in the comparable period in 2016 and $515 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to $459 million in 2016.  The increase in Company FFO over the prior quarter and year periods are primarily attributable to income recognized on property sales at Ala Moana in Honolulu, HI and increased ownership in GGP Inc. (“GGP”) following the settlement of warrants in the fourth quarter.

Core same-property retail occupancy finished the year at 96.2%, with average suite-to-suite rent spreads of 18.2% for leases commencing in 2017 and 2018. Tenant sales (excluding anchors) remained flat at $21.0 billion on a trailing 12-month basis.

Our opportunistic investments generated Company FFO of $99 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared to $68 million in the comparable period in 2016 and $377 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to $341 million in 2016.  The increase in Company FFO over the prior reporting periods was largely a result of new investments in this segment as well as same-property FFO growth in 2017.

Strategic Initiatives

Dispositions

During the fourth quarter, we successfully advanced a number of our capital recycling initiatives:

  • Sold 49% of One Liberty Plaza for $742 million, generating net proceeds of $328 million.
  • Sold two office buildings in Washington D.C. for $186 million ($96 million at BPY’s share).
  • Sold six multifamily properties in the U.S. for $277 million ($77 million at BPY’s share).
  • Sold 13 industrial properties and 3,500 acres of U.S. industrial land for $212 million ($38 million at BPY’s share).

New Investments

The proceeds raised from asset sales were used to invest in our active development pipeline and to fund new acquisitions, including:

  • A 4.2 million-square-foot office portfolio in the Powai district of Mumbai, India for approximately $900 million ($290 million at BPY’s share).
  • Houston Center, a 4.2 million-square-foot office and retail complex in Houston, TX for $825 million ($211 million at BPY’s share).
  • Two office properties totaling 400,000 square feet in San Jose, CA for $128 million ($32 million at BPY’s share). 
  • A student housing asset in Aberdeen, UK for £51 million (£13 million at BPY’s share).
  • Majority ownership (88%) in a multifamily property in Orlando, FL powered by Niido – an Airbnb-friendly apartment concept – for $58 million.  We expect to invest up to $200 million in other Niido properties in the future. 
  • Following quarter-end, a portfolio of 105 extended-stay hotels in the U.S. for $769 million ($197 million at BPY’s share).
  • Following quarter-end, the Renaissance Dupont Circle hotel in Washington, DC for $110 million ($28 million at BPY’s share).

Update on Proposed GGP Acquisition

On November 13, 2017, BPY made a non-binding proposal to acquire all of the outstanding shares of GGP not owned by BPY for consideration of $23 per share, half in cash and half in BPY units, or approximately $14.8 billion in total.  We continue to believe that this transaction is in the best long-term interests of both BPY and GGP shareholders, and hope to come to an agreement in the near future with the special committee of GGP’s Board of Directors that is currently considering the proposal.

Balance Sheet Update

To increase our balance sheet flexibility by increasing liquidity and extending the maturity of our debt, we executed on the following financing initiatives during the quarter:

  • Entered into a syndicated facility for A$1.1 billion to fund the remaining construction costs of the Wynyard Place development in Sydney.
  • In our industrial portfolio, refinanced $284 million on existing assets and initiated five new development construction loans for a total of $119 million.
  • Refinanced approximately $237 million of debt associated with core office properties in New York, Washington, D.C. and Toronto.
  • Issued ten million cumulative minimum rate reset Class AAA preference shares, Series II for C$25.00 per share from our office subsidiary for aggregate proceeds of C$250 million.  The preference shares will yield 4.85% for the initial five-year, fixed-rate period. 

Unit Repurchase Program

No Limited Partnership Units were acquired during the quarter under the in-place Normal Course Issuer Bid.  For the full year, BPY repurchased 5,913,672 LP units at an average price of $22.95 per unit.

Distribution Increase and Declaration

The Board of Directors approved an increase in the Partnership’s quarterly distribution from $0.295 to $0.315 per unit ($1.26 per unit on an annual basis). Accordingly, the Board has declared a quarterly distribution of $0.315 per unit payable on March 29, 2018 to unitholders of record at the close of business on February 28, 2018.

The quarterly distributions are declared in U.S. dollars. Registered unitholders residing in the United States shall receive quarterly cash distributions in U.S. dollars and registered unitholders not residing in the United States shall receive quarterly cash distributions in the Canadian dollar equivalent, based on the Bank of Canada exchange rate on the record date. Registered unitholders residing in the United States have the option, through Brookfield Property Partners’ transfer agent, AST Trust Company (Canada) ("AST"), to elect to receive quarterly cash distributions in the Canadian dollar equivalent and registered unitholders not residing in the United States have the option through AST to elect to receive quarterly cash distributions in U.S. dollars. Beneficial unitholders (i.e., those holding their units in street name with their brokerage) should contact the broker with whom their units are held to discuss their options regarding distribution currency.

Additional Information

Further details regarding the operations of the Partnership are set forth in regulatory filings. A copy of the filings may be obtained through the website of the SEC at www.sec.gov and on the Partnership’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com

Basis of Presentation

This press release and accompanying financial information make reference to net operating income (“NOI”), same-property NOI, funds from operations (“FFO”), Company FFO (“Company FFO”) and net income attributable to unitholders.

Company FFO and net income attributable to unitholders are also presented on a per unit basis. NOI, same-property NOI, FFO, Company FFO and net income attributable to unitholders do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The Partnership uses NOI, same-property NOI, FFO, Company FFO and net income attributable to unitholders to assess its operating results. These measures should not be used as alternatives to Net Income and other operating measures determined in accordance with IFRS, but rather to provide supplemental insights into performance.  Further, these measures do not represent liquidity measures or cash flow from operations and are not intended to be representative of the funds available for distribution to unitholders either in aggregate or on a per unit basis, where presented.

NOI is defined as revenues from commercial and hospitality operations of consolidated properties less direct commercial property and hospitality expenses. As NOI includes the revenues and expenses directly associated with owning and operating commercial property and hospitality assets, it provides a measure to evaluate the performance of the property operations.

Same-property NOI is a subset of NOI, which excludes NOI that is earned from assets acquired, disposed of or developed during the periods presented, or not of a recurring nature, and from opportunistic assets. Same-property NOI allows the Partnership to segregate the performance of leasing and operating initiatives on the portfolio from the impact to performance from investing activities and “one-time items,” which for the historical periods presented consist primarily of lease termination income.

FFO is defined as income, including equity accounted income, before realized gains (losses) from the sale of investment property (except gains (losses) related to properties developed for sale), fair value gains (losses) (including equity accounted fair value gains (losses)), depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, income tax expense (benefit), and less non-controlling interests of others in operating subsidiaries and properties. FFO is a widely recognized measure that is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of real estate entities, particularly those that own and operate income producing properties. The Partnership’s definition of FFO includes all of the adjustments that are outlined in the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) definition of FFO. In addition to the adjustments prescribed by NAREIT, the Partnership also makes adjustments to exclude any unrealized fair value gains (or losses) that arise as a result of reporting under IFRS, and income taxes that arise as certain of its subsidiaries are structured as corporations as opposed to real estate investment trusts (“REITs”). These additional adjustments result in an FFO measure that is similar to that which would result if the Partnership was organized as a REIT that determined net income in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”), which is the type of organization on which the NAREIT definition is premised. The Partnership’s FFO measure will differ from other organizations applying the NAREIT definition to the extent of certain differences between the IFRS and U.S. GAAP reporting frameworks, principally related to the recognition of lease termination income. FFO provides a performance measure that, when compared year-over-year, reflects the impact on operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs and interest costs.

Company FFO is defined as FFO before the impact of depreciation and amortization of non-real estate assets, transaction costs, gains (losses) associated with non-investment properties, imputed interest and the FFO that would have been attributable to unitholders’ shares of GGP Inc. (“GGP”), if all outstanding warrants of GGP were exercised. Prior to the third quarter of 2017, the adjustment assumed net settlement of the outstanding warrants. For the third quarter 2017, the adjustment is based on the cash settlement for all applicable warrants to reflect the Partnership’s stated plans for settling the warrants on such a basis. The warrants were exercised in the fourth quarter of 2017. Company FFO, similar to FFO discussed above, provides a performance measure that reflects the impact on operations of trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs and interest costs. In addition, the adjustments to Company FFO relative to FFO allow the Partnership insight into these trends for the real estate operations, by adjusting for non-real estate components.

Net income attributable to unitholders is defined as net income attributable to holders of general partnership units and limited partnership units of the Partnership, redeemable/exchangeable and special limited partnership units of Brookfield Property L.P. and limited partnership units of Brookfield Office Properties Exchange LP. Net income attributable to unitholders is used by the Partnership to evaluate the performance of the Partnership as a whole as each of the unitholders participates in the economics of the Partnership equally. In calculating net income attributable to unitholders per unit, the Partnership excludes the impact of mandatorily convertible preferred units in determining the average number of units outstanding as the holders of mandatorily convertible preferred units do not participate in current earnings.  The Partnership reconciles this measure to basic net income attributable to unitholders per unit determined in accordance with IFRS which includes the effect of mandatorily convertible preferred units in the basic average number of units outstanding.

Prior to the third quarter of 2017, the adjustment assumed net settlement of the outstanding warrants. For the third quarter 2017, the adjustment is based on the cash settlement for all applicable warrants to reflect the Partnership’s settlement of the warrants on such a basis. The warrants were exercised in the fourth quarter of 2017.
