iStar Financial Announces Record Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year Earnings
NEW YORK, Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- iStar Financial Inc. (NYSE: SFI) reported that adjusted earnings for the quarter ended December 31, 2000 increased 15% to $0.69 per diluted common share, from $0.60 per diluted share for the quarter ended December 31, 1999. Adjusted earnings for the fourth quarter 2000 totaled $60.1 million on a diluted basis, up 32.6% from $45.3 million for fourth quarter 1999. Adjusted earnings represent GAAP net income before depreciation and amortization. Net income allocable to common shareholders for the fourth quarter grew to $46.9 million, or $0.54 per diluted common share. For the fourth quarter 1999, excluding a one-time, non-cash charge of $94.5 million associated with the Company's acquisition of its external advisor, net income allocable to common shareholders was $36.1 million, or $0.49 per diluted share.
In the fourth quarter of 2000, iStar Financial achieved returns on average book assets and average common book equity of 6.8% and 16.7%, respectively, while leverage remained at 1.2x book equity. Net investment income for the quarter ended December 31, 2000 increased 25.3% to $66.9 million, from $53.4 million for the fourth quarter of 1999. Net investment income represents interest and operating lease revenue less interest expense and operating costs for corporate tenant lease assets. Fourth quarter 2000 total revenue increased 36.7% to $122.3 million, from $89.5 million for the 1999 period.
Adjusted earnings for the year ended December 31, 2000 were $230.7 million, or $2.67 per diluted share, compared to $127.8 million, or $2.07 per diluted share for the same period in 1999. Net income allocable to common shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2000 was $180.7 million, or $2.10 per diluted share. For the same period in 1999, excluding the one-time advisor acquisition charge, net income allocable to common shareholders was $109.5 million, or $1.81 per diluted share.
For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2000, iStar Financial generated returns on average book assets and average common book equity of 6.8% and 16.3%, respectively, while leverage averaged 1.1x book equity. Net investment income and total revenue increased to $267.3 million and $471.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2000, respectively, from $158.6 million and $264.8 million, respectively, for the 1999 period.
iStar Financial announced that during the fourth quarter, it closed seven new financing commitments totaling $237.3 million, $117.3 million of which was funded during the quarter. In addition, the Company funded $12.0 million under six pre-existing commitments and received $157.8 million in principal repayments. For the year ended December 31, 2000, iStar Financial closed over $1 billion in new financing commitments and fundings under pre-existing commitments, and received $523.1 million in principal repayments. The Company's recent transactions continue to reflect its core business strategy of originating and acquiring large-balance, structured lending and corporate leasing transactions secured by high-quality commercial real estate assets in major metropolitan markets across the United States.
Jay Sugarman, iStar Financial's chairman and chief executive officer, commented, "This year, iStar Financial generated record earnings in each quarter, and continued to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns on equity using balance sheet leverage well below that of many other commercial finance companies. More importantly, however, this year we continued our track record of minimizing credit losses through strict risk management and underwriting discipline, and further strengthened our leading franchise in structured real estate finance, providing our customers with over $1 billion in flexible financing solutions. We also continued to add industry-leading investment, capital markets and asset management talent to our fully-integrated team of professionals." Mr. Sugarman added, "Going into the new year, I am as confident in our prospects as at any time in our eight-year history."

Selected Balance Sheet Data
As of As of December 31, December 31, 2000 1999 (unaudited) Loans and other lending investments, net $2,225,183 $2,003,506 Real estate subject to operating leases, net 1,670,169 1,714,284 Total assets 4,034,775 3,813,552 Debt obligations 2,131,967 1,901,204 Total liabilities 2,240,666 2,009,644 Total shareholders' equity 1,787,885 1,801,343
In the fourth quarter of 2000, iStar Financial generated $237.3 million in new financing commitments in seven separate transactions, representing a diversified mix of senior mortgage loans, corporate lending transactions and corporate tenant leasing investments. The Company also funded an additional $12.0 million under six pre-existing financing commitments and received $157.8 million in loan repayments. Mr. Sugarman stated, "This quarter, we continued to capitalize on the unsettled conditions in the credit markets by originating senior financings and corporate lease transactions at attractive yields, while minimizing our exposure to a weakening economy. Under the leadership of the investment professionals we added in our ACRE Partners acquisition, the corporate tenant investment platform began to hit its stride this quarter. While loan repayments generally occurred earlier than new investment fundings this quarter, we expect this circumstance to reverse in the first half of 2001."
During the quarter, the weighted average first dollar and last dollar loan-to-value ratio on new lending commitments was 48.4% and 56.9%, respectively. This ratio represents the average beginning and ending points for the Company's lending exposure in the aggregate capitalization of the underlying properties it finances. In its corporate leasing business, the Company's new investments this quarter include three transactions with a weighted average lease term of 13.7 years backed by both investment grade and unrated tenant credits.
Mr. Sugarman commented, "Given the current market environment, in the fourth quarter we continued to focus on investments which are either senior in our borrowers' capital structures or secured by diversified corporate credits. Together with our property-specific mezzanine business line, we continue to target borrowers who are willing to demonstrate substantial equity commitments or excess collateral to backstop our capital."
At year-end 2000, first mortgage assets, corporate tenant lease investments and corporate lending assets comprised 30%, 44% and 17% of the Company's asset base, respectively. The weighted average first and last dollar loan-to-value ratio for all structured finance assets (senior and junior loans) was 25.4% and 71.3%, respectively.
Corporate Tenant Leasing
During the fourth quarter of 2000, the Company executed new leases totaling approximately 1.7 million square feet of corporate office and industrial facilities, with a weighted average term of 12.6 years. Mr. Sugarman commented, "Our overriding objective for the corporate tenant lease business is to continue to extend lease maturities in the former TriNet portfolio and complete new long-term lease investments. By capitalizing on inefficiencies in the way corporate credit risk is often mispriced when it takes the form of a long-term real estate lease, iStar Financial seeks to create excess risk adjusted returns from a diversified pool of corporate credits. A key element of this strategy is to look to credit-backed lease streams and other forms of credit enhancement for a majority of our returns, as opposed to relying on real estate residual values at the end of the lease term. This philosophy is consistent with our maintaining the risk/return profile of a conservatively leveraged finance company, and not of a real estate equity investor."
As of December 31, 2000, the weighted average lease term of the Company's corporate tenant leasing portfolio was 8.5 years, up from 5.6 years at December 31, 1999. This portfolio was 96.2% leased at the end of the fourth quarter 2000 (98.6% excluding a vacant facility currently being marketed for sale).
Since January of 2000, iStar Financial has executed 4.9 million square feet of new and renewed leases with an average term of 11.4 years. Of the leases renewed, approximately 35% represented early renewals on leases with more than 12 months remaining on the primary lease term. During the past year, iStar Financial renewed expiring leases at weighted average lease rates approximately 18.1% higher than those in place prior to the renewals. Remaining lease expirations for 2001 and 2002 now total just 2.8% and 4.9%, respectively, of annualized operating lease revenues (1.4% and 2.5% of total revenue, respectively), down from 12.0% and 12.1% at the time of the TriNet acquisition.
During the fourth quarter, the Company continued to make progress on expanding its sources of short-term and long-term capital and extending its debt maturities. iStar Financial expanded an existing $675 million secured warehouse facility to $700 million, increased the range of collateral eligible for inclusion in the facility, and extended its final maturity to March 2005 from March 2001. In addition, subsequent to quarter end, iStar Financial closed an additional $700 million secured revolving credit facility with a major commercial bank. Interest rates under the new facility range from LIBOR + 1.40% to LIBOR + 2.15%, depending upon the collateral contributed to the borrowing base. The new facility accepts a broad range of structured finance assets and has a final maturity of January 2005.
Spencer B. Haber, iStar Financial's executive vice president-finance and chief financial officer, commented, "With $2.4 billion of total credit facilities and a long-term liability structure, we believe we have continued to differentiate iStar Financial in terms of the breadth and depth of our access to attractively-priced capital, as well as our match-funding discipline as to both maturities and interest rates. We go into 2001 with a substantial amount of excess liquidity with which to fuel our investment activities."
Mr. Haber continued, "Our balance sheet also remains highly match funded to minimize interest rate risk. Our corporate policy is to manage our net exposure to short-term interest rate fluctuations such that a 100 basis point change in rates impacts adjusted earnings per share by no more than 2.5%. Based on current match funding in place, a 100 basis point move in short-term interest rates should impact adjusted earnings per share by less than 1.5%."
Subsequent to quarter end, Moody's Investors Service upgraded iStar Financial's credit ratings. Moody's upgraded iStar Financial senior unsecured credit rating to Ba1 from Ba2, and the rating on the Company's perpetual preferred stock to Ba3 from B1. Mr. Haber stated, "We are pleased with the Moody's upgrade, and believe that its favorable ratings action reflects the continuing strength of our business strategy and asset base, and particularly our focus on risk mitigation and disciplined underwriting. We also acknowledge Moody's upgrade, coming as it does, at a time when many other lenders are experiencing deteriorating credit conditions. We view this accomplishment as another step toward our continuing objective of an investment grade corporate credit rating, to which we remain firmly committed."
Mr. Haber added, "Our highest priority for 2001 is to expand iStar Financial's presence within the investment and research communities. We have built a solid foundation as to the diversity of our capital sources, as well as our liquidity and match funding objectives. However, we firmly believe that the successful performance of this business across market cycles has yet to be appropriately reflected in our stock price. As a result, our efforts are concentrated on enhancing investor communications and increasing research coverage. As large owners of iStar Financial's stock, all of iStar Financial's employees consider this undertaking to be of paramount importance."
Credit Risk Management
The Company establishes loss reserves based on a quarterly bottom-up review of each of its structured finance and corporate tenant lease assets, as well as using top-down guidance from industry-wide loss data and market trends. On a quarterly basis, the Company conducts a comprehensive credit review, resulting in an individual risk rating assigned to each asset. Directed by Mr. Sugarman and Timothy O'Connor, iStar Financial's executive vice president and chief operating officer, attendance at the quarterly review sessions is mandatory for each of the Company's professional employees. The quarterly meetings are designed to enable management to evaluate and proactively manage asset-specific credit issues and identify credit trends on a portfolio-wide basis as an "early warning system."
During the risk ratings review, each loan is assigned a risk rating from "one" to "five," with a "one" indicating superior credit quality, a "two" signifying better than average credit quality, "three" as an average rating, a "four" indicating that management time and attention is required, and a "five" denoting a problem asset with potential principal risk to the Company. In addition to the ratings system, the Company maintains a "watch list" of assets which are typically rated "four," but which require highly proactive asset management to preserve their current ratings. Each newly originated asset is typically assigned an initial rating of "three" (or average).
Based upon the Company's fourth quarter 2000 review, the weighted average risk rating of the Company's structured finance assets was 2.50, improved from 2.59 for the quarter ended September 30, 2000. The weighted average risk rating for corporate tenant lease assets at year-end was 2.77. The Company has one loan and one corporate tenant lease asset currently on its "watch list," with a combined book value of $39.5 million as of December 31, 2000. The Company remains comfortable that it has adequate collateral to support its book value in both instances.
At year-end, accumulated loss reserves and depreciation represented approximately 1.54% of the gross book value of the Company's owned receivables (loans and operating leases).
On December 15, 2000, iStar Financial declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.60 per common share for the quarter ended December 31, 2000. This dividend represents a 5.3% increase over the $0.57 per share dividend paid for fourth quarter 1999. The fourth quarter 2000 dividend, which was paid on January 12, 2001 to holders of record as of December 29, 2000, represents approximately 85.7% of basic adjusted earnings per share for the fourth quarter.
The Company's current policy is to annually review its dividend in the first quarter of each fiscal year. The Company expects to review its dividend for a potential increase applicable to the first quarter of 2001.
iStar Financial is the leading publicly traded finance company focused on the commercial real estate industry. The Company provides structured financing to private and corporate owners of real estate nationwide, including senior and junior mortgage debt, corporate and mezzanine lending, and corporate net lease financing. The Company, which is taxed as a real estate investment trust, seeks to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns on equity to shareholders by providing innovative and value-added financing solutions to its customers.
