Operating Portfolio Highlights
- Annualized Net Operating Income (“NOI”) for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was $322.0 million, compared to $321.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, at our share.
- The operating commercial portfolio was 90.3% leased and 86.0% occupied as of June 30, 2019, compared to 90.2% and 85.6% as of March 31, 2019, at our share.
- The operating multifamily portfolio was 98.0% leased and 95.0% occupied as of June 30, 2019, compared to 97.0% and 94.8% as of March 31, 2019, at our share.
- Executed approximately 395,000 square feet of office leases at our share in the second quarter, comprising approximately 120,000 square feet of new leases and approximately 275,000 square feet of second generation leases, which generated a 14.9% rental rate increase on a GAAP basis and a 6.0% rental rate increase on a cash basis.
- Executed approximately 1.2 million square feet of commercial leases at our share during the six months ended June 30, 2019, comprising approximately 676,000 square feet of new leases and approximately 504,000 square feet of second generation leases, which generated a 5.1% rental rate increase on a GAAP basis and a 0.3% rental rate decrease on a cash basis. The new leases include three initial leases entered into with Amazon.com, Inc. ("Amazon") during the first quarter totaling 537,000 square feet at three of our existing office buildings in National Landing in conjunction with the creation of Amazon's additional headquarters. The leases encompass approximately 88,000 square feet at 241 18th Street South, approximately 191,000 square feet at 1800 South Bell Street and approximately 258,000 square feet at 1770 Crystal Drive. We expect Amazon to begin moving into 241 18th Street South and 1800 South Bell in 2019 and 1770 Crystal Drive by the end of 2020. Also, in April 2019, we executed an agreement with Amazon to lease an additional approximately 48,000 square feet of office space at 2345 Crystal Drive in National Landing , which it began moving into in the second quarter.
- Same Store Net Operating Income (“SSNOI”) at our share decreased 9.2% to $74.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, compared to $81.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. SSNOI decreased 9.7% to $147.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to $162.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The decrease in SSNOI for the three months ended June 30, 2019 is largely attributable to increased rental abatements, lower NOI at Crystal City Marriott, as a result of the ongoing room renovations, and an increase in assumed lease liability payments. The reported same store pools as of June 30, 2019 include only the assets that were in service for the entirety of both periods being compared.
Development Portfolio Highlights
- During the quarter ended June 30, 2019, there were eight assets under construction (four commercial assets and four multifamily assets), consisting of 821,099 square feet and 1,298 units, both at our share.
- As of June 30, 2019, there were no assets in near-term development.
Future Development Pipeline
- As of June 30, 2019, there were 40 future development assets consisting of 18.7 million square feet of estimated potential density at our share, including the 4.1 million square feet held for sale to Amazon.

Pro Rata Information
We present certain financial information and metrics in this release “at JBG SMITH Share,” which refers to our ownership percentage of consolidated and unconsolidated assets in real estate ventures (collectively, “real estate ventures”) as applied to these financial measures and metrics. Financial information “at JBG SMITH Share” is calculated on an asset-by-asset basis by applying our percentage economic interest to each applicable line item of that asset’s financial information. “At JBG SMITH Share” information, which we also refer to as being “at share,” “our pro rata share” or “our share,” is not, and is not intended to be, a presentation in accordance with GAAP. Given that a substantial portion of our assets are held through real estate ventures, we believe this form of presentation, which presents our economic interests in the partially owned entities, provides investors valuable information regarding a significant component of our portfolio, its composition, performance and capitalization.
We do not control the unconsolidated real estate ventures and do not have a legal claim to our co-venturers’ share of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses. The operating agreements of the unconsolidated real estate ventures generally allow each co-venturer to receive cash distributions to the extent there is available cash from operations. The amount of cash each investor receives is based upon specific provisions of each operating agreement and varies depending on certain factors including the amount of capital contributed by each investor and whether any investors are entitled to preferential distributions.
With respect to any such third-party arrangement, we would not be in a position to exercise sole decision-making authority regarding the property, real estate venture or other entity, and may, under certain circumstances, be exposed to economic risks not present were a third-party not involved. We and our respective co-venturers may each have the right to trigger a buy-sell or forced sale arrangement, which could cause us to sell our interest, or acquire our co-venturers’ interests, or to sell the underlying asset, either on unfavorable terms or at a time when we otherwise would not have initiated such a transaction. Our real estate ventures may be subject to debt, and the repayment or refinancing of such debt may require equity capital calls. To the extent our co-venturers do not meet their obligations to us or our real estate ventures or they act inconsistent with the interests of the real estate venture, we may be adversely affected. Because of these limitations, the non-GAAP “at JBG SMITH Share” financial information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our financial statements as reported under GAAP.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release includes non-GAAP financial measures. For these measures, we have provided an explanation of how these non-GAAP measures are calculated and why JBG SMITH’s management believes that the presentation of these measures provides useful information to investors regarding JBG SMITH’s financial condition and results of operations. Reconciliations of certain non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure are included in this earnings release. Our presentation of non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition to "at share" financial information, the following non-GAAP measures are included in this release:
Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA"), EBITDA for Real Estate ("EBITDAre") and Adjusted EBITDA
Management uses EBITDA and EBITDAre, non-GAAP financial measures, as supplemental operating performance measures and believes they help investors and lenders meaningfully evaluate and compare our operating performance from period-to-period by removing from our operating results the impact of our capital structure (primarily interest charges from our outstanding debt and the impact of our interest rate swaps) and certain non-cash expenses (primarily depreciation and amortization on our assets). EBITDAre is computed in accordance with the definition established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”). NAREIT defines EBITDAre as GAAP net income (loss) adjusted to exclude interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses, gains on sales of real estate and impairment losses of real estate, including our share of such adjustments of unconsolidated real estate ventures. These supplemental measures may help investors and lenders understand our ability to incur and service debt and to make capital expenditures. EBITDA and EBITDAre are not substitutes for net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.
“Adjusted EBITDA,” a non-GAAP financial measure, represents EBITDAre adjusted for items we believe are not representative of ongoing operating results, such as transaction and other costs, gain (loss) on the extinguishment of debt, distributions in excess of our investment in unconsolidated real estate ventures, gain on the bargain purchase of a business, lease liability adjustments and share-based compensation expense related to the Formation Transaction and special equity awards. We believe that adjusting such items not considered part of our comparable operations, provides a meaningful measure to evaluate and compare our performance from period-to-period.
Because EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, we use EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDA to supplement GAAP financial measures. Additionally, we believe that users of these measures should consider EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with net income (loss) and other GAAP measures in understanding our operating results.
Funds from Operations ("FFO"), Core FFO and Funds Available for Distribution (“FAD")
FFO is a non-GAAP financial measure computed in accordance with the definition established by NAREIT in the NAREIT FFO White Paper - 2018 Restatement issued in 2018. NAREIT defines FFO as “net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding depreciation and amortization related to real estate, gains and losses from the sale of certain real estate assets, gains and losses from change in control and impairment write-downs of certain real estate assets and investments in entities when the impairment is directly attributable to decreases in the value of depreciable real estate held by the entity."
"Core FFO" represents FFO adjusted to exclude items (net of tax) which we believe are not representative of ongoing operating results, such as transaction and other costs, gains (or losses) on extinguishment of debt, gain on the bargain purchase of a business, distributions in excess of our investment in unconsolidated real estate ventures, share-based compensation expense related to the Formation Transaction and special equity awards, lease liability adjustments, amortization of the management contracts intangible and the mark-to-market of derivative instruments.
"FAD" is a non-GAAP financial measure and represents FFO less recurring tenant improvements, leasing commissions and other capital expenditures, net deferred rent activity, third-party lease liability assumption payments, recurring share-based compensation expense, accretion of acquired below-market leases, net of amortization of acquired above-market leases, amortization of debt issuance costs and other non-cash income and charges. FAD is presented solely as a supplemental disclosure that management believes provides useful information as it relates to our ability to fund dividends.
We believe FFO, Core FFO and FAD are meaningful non-GAAP financial measures useful in comparing our levered operating performance from period-to-period and as compared to similar real estate companies because these non-GAAP measures exclude real estate depreciation and amortization expense and other non-comparable income and expenses, which implicitly assumes that the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time rather than fluctuating based on market conditions. FFO, Core FFO and FAD do not represent cash generated from operating activities and are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash requirements and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) as a performance measure or cash flow as a liquidity measure. FFO, Core FFO and FAD may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.
Net Operating Income ("NOI") and Annualized NOI
“NOI” is a non-GAAP financial measure management uses to measure the operating performance of our assets and consists of property-related revenue (which includes base rent, tenant reimbursements and other operating revenue, net of free rent and payments associated with assumed lease liabilities) less operating expenses and ground rent, if applicable. NOI also excludes deferred rent, related party management fees, interest expense, and certain other non-cash adjustments, including the accretion of acquired below-market leases and amortization of acquired above-market leases and below-market ground lease intangibles. Annualized NOI, for all assets except Crystal City Marriott, represents NOI for the three months ended June 30, 2019 multiplied by four. Due to seasonality in the hospitality business, annualized NOI for Crystal City Marriott represents the trailing 12-month NOI as of June 30, 2019. Management believes Annualized NOI provides useful information in understanding our financial performance over a 12-month period, however, investors and other users are cautioned against attributing undue certainty to our calculation of Annualized NOI. Actual NOI for any 12-month period will depend on a number of factors beyond our ability to control or predict, including general capital markets and economic conditions, any bankruptcy, insolvency, default or other failure to pay rent by one or more of our tenants and the destruction of one or more of our assets due to terrorist attack, natural disaster or other casualty, among others. We do not undertake any obligation to update our calculation to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this earnings release. There can be no assurance that the annualized NOI shown will reflect our actual results of operations over any 12-month period.
Management uses each of these measures as supplemental performance measures for its assets and believes they provide useful information to investors because they reflect only those revenue and expense items that are incurred at the asset level, excluding non-cash items. In addition, NOI is considered by many in the real estate industry to be a useful starting point for determining the value of a real estate asset or group of assets.
However, because NOI excludes depreciation and amortization and captures neither the changes in the value of our assets that result from use or market conditions, nor the level of capital expenditures and capitalized leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of our assets, all of which have real economic effect and could materially impact the financial performance of our assets, the utility of NOI as a measure of the operating performance of our assets is limited.
