Quarterly Results

Q2 2021
The Howard Hughes Corporation® Reports Second Quarter 2021 Results
Robust financial results highlighted by strong improvement in Operating Asset NOI, continued growth of MPC EBT, and elevated condo sales at Ward Village®

HOUSTON, Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE: HHC) (the "Company," "HHC" or "we") announced today operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021. The financial statements, exhibits and reconciliations of non-GAAP measures in the attached Appendix and the Supplemental Information, as available through the Investors section of our website, provide further detail of these results.

"The second quarter represented another period of strong financial performance at The Howard Hughes Corporation. All of our business segments have now either surpassed or are closely approaching pre-pandemic levels, which is a testament to our dedicated employees, irreplaceable assets and highly sought-after communities. As we turn our attention to the future, we are well positioned to capture this continued momentum as we capitalize on the post-pandemic shifts in residential and commercial real estate trends," commented David R. O'Reilly, Chief Executive Officer of The Howard Hughes Corporation.

"Net operating income (NOI)(1) in our Operating Assets segment grew for the third consecutive quarter, representing a 44% increase from the lows of the third quarter of 2020. These results were highlighted by improvements within retail, hospitality and the Las Vegas Ballpark, all of which demonstrate the continued recovery in the assets most impacted by the pandemic.

"In our master planned community (MPC) segment, superpad sales and earnings from our Summit joint venture in Summerlin® drove earnings before taxes (EBT)(1) higher by 66% to $70 million compared to the same period last year. Similarly, new home sales increased 23% over the same period as the demand for housing in our communities has remained strong.

"Demand at Ward Village ® continues to surpass expectations with ninety-one units contracted in the first half of 2021 despite travel restrictions to Hawai'i. The pace of condo sales has remained vigorous with 86% of the units already pre-sold in our three towers currently under construction.

"At the Seaport, we experienced an increase in event bookings and elevated restaurant activity following the easement of most COVID-related restrictions. On The Rooftop at Pier 17®, we began hosting a wide variety of events including our summer concert series, which was on hiatus last year as a result of the pandemic. Additionally, we opened five restaurants during the quarter, two of which were new concepts at Pier 17 by acclaimed chef Andrew Carmellini: Carne Mare and Mister Dips. Our growing set of culinary offerings continue to transform the Seaport into one of the premier dining destinations in all of Manhattan."

Second Quarter 2021 Highlights

Total Company

  • Strong performance displayed broadly across all business segments with net income increasing to $4.8 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the quarter, compared to a net loss of $34.1 million, or $(0.61) per diluted share, in the prior year period.
  • Our strong financial performance included Operating Asset NOI of $57.9 million, a $17.0 million improvement; MPC EBT of $69.8 million, a $27.6 million increase; and contracted to sell forty-five condominiums, a 246.2% increase, all compared to the prior year period, which contributed towards meaningful growth in net asset value to the benefit of our stockholders.
  • Maintained a fortress balance sheet with $1.2 billion of liquidity and limited near term debt maturities as of quarter end.

Operating Assets

  • Total Operating Assets NOI, including contribution from equity investments, totaled $57.9 million in the quarter, a 19.6% increase compared to $48.4 million in the prior quarter, and a 41.7% increase compared to $40.8 million in the prior year period.
  • Retail NOI increased 23.3% sequentially to $14.8 million due to improving rent collections of 79.7% and strong leasing activity primarily in Downtown Summerlin® and Ward Village.
  • Hospitality NOI increased substantially to $2.7 million from the prior quarter, primarily due to an increase in the volume of leisure travelers during the early summer months, resulting in an overall occupancy increase of nearly nine percentage points to 45.3%.
  • The Las Vegas Ballpark generated $3.1 million of NOI during the quarter as the Las Vegas Aviators began the minor league baseball season. This compares to a $1.1 million loss in the prior year period when the impacts of COVID-19 resulted in the cancellation of the entire minor league baseball season.
  • Multi-family NOI increased 29.2% to $7.4 million compared to the prior quarter due to faster than expected lease-up in our latest developments.
  • Office NOI increased 1.7% sequentially to $26.3 million as strong leasing activity more than offset tenant expirations experienced in the prior quarter, and we expect to capitalize on continued leasing momentum in the second half of 2021.

MPC

  • MPC EBT totaled $69.8 million in the quarter, a 10.2% increase compared to $63.4 million in the prior quarter, and a 65.5% increase compared to $42.2 million in the prior year period.
  • Our strong quarterly results were driven primarily by the closing of three superpads and robust earnings from our Summit joint venture in Summerlin.
  • The price per acre of residential land across all our communities increased 4.9% year-to-date to $618 thousand per acre compared to $589 thousand per acre in the prior year period.
  • New home sales, a leading indicator of future land sales, continued to move higher, with 687 homes sold in our MPCs during the quarter, a 22.9% increase compared to the prior year period.

Strategic Developments

  • We continued to experience strong condominium sales at Ward Village, evidenced by the forty-five condominium units we contracted to sell during the quarter, which increased 246.2% compared to the prior year period.
  • Our three towers under construction—'A'ali'i, Kō'ula, and Victoria Place—are 86.4% presold as of quarter end.
  • Victoria Place, which began construction in February 2021, accounted for twenty-eight of the units contracted during the quarter and was 93.4% presold as of quarter end.
  • We closed on the final unit at Anaha®, totaling $12.9 million in net revenue, resulting in Anaha being completely sold out.
  • We commenced construction on 1700 Pavilion and Tanager Echo in Summerlin. Total development costs are estimated to be $120.4 million for 1700 Pavilion and $81.6 million for Tanager Echo, with a 7% expected stabilized yield for both properties.
  • We completed the sale of Monarch City for $51.4 million, resulting in net proceeds of $49.9 million, which increased the total proceeds from non-core asset sales to $263.7 million since the fourth quarter of 2019.

Seaport

  • The Seaport reported a $4.4 million loss in NOI in the quarter, which remained flat compared to the prior quarter, and decreased 18.1% compared to a $3.7 million loss in the prior-year period.
  • Visitor volume has increased in conjunction with most of the COVID-related restrictions lifted in June, resulting in the relaunch of our summer concert series, with several shows scheduled through October, seven of which are already sold out.
  • Restaurant activity has increased materially, with several restaurants at Pier 17 approaching or exceeding their stabilization targets based on sales per square foot, even with labor shortages hindering some locations from operating at full capacity.
  • Seasonal events, community programming, and activations at the rooftop have increased foot traffic to the entire district and benefited our retail locations, restaurants, and sponsorship partners.
  • We continued to advance our plans for the potential development at 250 Water Street after receiving the Landmarks Preservation Commission design approval, which presents a unique opportunity to transform the last available development site at the Seaport into a vibrant, mixed-use asset.

Conference Call & Webcast Information

The Howard Hughes Corporation will host its investor conference call on Thursday, August 5, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. Central Standard Time (10:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time) to discuss second quarter 2021 results. To participate, please dial 1-877-883-0383 within the U.S., 1-877-885-0477 within Canada, or 1-412-902-6506 when dialing internationally. All participants should dial in at least five minutes prior to the scheduled start time, using 9284753 as the passcode. In addition to dial-in options, institutional and retail shareholders can participate by going to app.saytechnologies.com/howardhughes . Shareholders can email hello@saytechnologies.com  for any support inquiries.

We are primarily focused on creating shareholder value by increasing our per share net asset value. Often, the nature of our business results in short-term volatility in our net income due to the timing of MPC land sales, recognition of condominium revenue and operating business pre-opening expenses, and, as such, we believe the following metrics summarized below are most useful in tracking our progress towards net asset value creation.

Financial Presentation

As discussed throughout this release, we use certain non-GAAP performance measures, in addition to the required GAAP presentations, as we believe these measures improve the understanding of our operational results and make comparisons of operating results among peer companies more meaningful. We continually evaluate the usefulness, relevance, limitations and calculation of our reported non-GAAP performance measures to determine how best to provide relevant information to the public, and thus such reported measures could change. A non-GAAP financial measure used throughout this release is net operating income (NOI). We provide a more detailed discussion about this non-GAAP measure in our reconciliation of non-GAAP measures provided in the appendix in this earnings release.

Appendix – Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

For the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2021 and 2020

Below are GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations of certain financial measures, as required under Regulation G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Non-GAAP information should be considered by the reader in addition to, but not instead of, the financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial information presented may be determined or calculated differently by other companies and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures.

As a result of our four segments—Operating Assets, Master Planned Communities (MPC), Seaport and Strategic Developments—being managed separately, we use different operating measures to assess operating results and allocate resources among these four segments. The one common operating measure used to assess operating results for our business segments is earnings before tax (EBT). EBT, as it relates to each business segment, represents the revenues less expenses of each segment, including interest income, interest expense and equity in earnings of real estate and other affiliates. EBT excludes corporate expenses and other items that are not allocable to the segments. We present EBT because we use this measure, among others, internally to assess the core operating performance of our assets. However, segment EBT should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income.

NOI

We believe that NOI is a useful supplemental measure of the performance of our Operating Assets and Seaport portfolio because it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, reflects the revenues and expenses directly associated with owning and operating real estate properties and the impact on operations from trends in rental and occupancy rates and operating costs. We define NOI as operating revenues (rental income, tenant recoveries and other revenue) less operating expenses (real estate taxes, repairs and maintenance, marketing and other property expenses, including our share of NOI from equity investees). NOI excludes straight-line rents and amortization of tenant incentives, net; interest expense, net; ground rent amortization, demolition costs; other income (loss); amortization; depreciation; development-related marketing cost; gain on sale or disposal of real estate and other assets, net; provision for impairment and equity in earnings from real estate and other affiliates. All management fees have been eliminated for all internally-managed properties. We use NOI to evaluate our operating performance on a property-by-property basis because NOI allows us to evaluate the impact that property-specific factors such as lease structure, lease rates and tenant base have on our operating results, gross margins and investment returns. Variances between years in NOI typically result from changes in rental rates, occupancy, tenant mix and operating expenses. Although we believe that NOI provides useful information to investors about the performance of our Operating Assets and Seaport assets, due to the exclusions noted above, NOI should only be used as an additional measure of the financial performance of the assets of this segment of our business and not as an alternative to GAAP Net income (loss). For reference, and as an aid in understanding our computation of NOI, a reconciliation of segment EBT to NOI for Operating Assets and Seaport has been presented in the tables below.
