- NOI, OFFO and AFFO are not measures recognized under IFRS and do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS. NOI, OFFO and AFFO are supplemental measures of a company's performance, and management of the Company believes that NOI and OFFO are relevant measures of the Company’s earnings performance, and AFFO is a relevant measure of the Company’s ability to earn cash and pay dividends. The IFRS measurement most directly comparable to OFFO and AFFO is net income and cash flow from operating activities, respectively.
- Payout Ratio is calculated using dividends declared per share divided by the basic AFFO per share for the respective periods.
2018 First Quarter
Revenue increased by $11.4 million or 8.5% to $145.4 million over the comparable prior year period. The increase was principally related to the revenues generated from the acquisitions completed during 2017 and Q1 2018.
Operating expenses increased by $6.4 million or 6.1% to $113.0 million over the comparable prior year period. The increase was principally related to timing of expenditures and expenses incurred by the properties acquired during 2017 and Q1 2018, partially offset by a prior year tax adjustment of $1.3 million.
NOI increased by $4.9 million or 18.0% to $32.4 million over the comparable prior year period.
The Company generated net income of $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018, which was lower than the comparable prior year period. The decrease was principally related to the transaction costs incurred for the acquisition in Q1 2018 and an increase in depreciation and amortization, partially offset by income generated from the acquisitions completed during 2017 and Q1 2018.
OFFO increased by $4.3 million or 30.2% to $18.5 million over the comparable prior year period. The increase was principally related to the income generated from the acquisitions completed during 2017 and Q1 2018, and a prior year tax adjustment of $1.3 million, partially offset by the dilution of earnings from the February public offering in connection with the Acquisition that was completed in March, and incremental interest expense on the acquisitions completed during 2017 and Q1 2018.
AFFO increased by $4.2 million or 24.9% to $20.8 million over the comparable prior year period. The increase was principally related to the increase in OFFO noted above and income support received, partially offset by an increase in maintenance capital expenditures due to the timing of such expenditures and the Company’s growth.
