Financial Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2017
Net income according to generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 was $1.8 million, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share. This compares to a GAAP net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 of $48.2 million, or $0.27 per basic and diluted share.
NAREIT-defined funds from operations (“FFO”), a non-GAAP financial measure, for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 was $19.7 million, or $0.12 per basic and diluted share. This compares to FFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 of $26.1 million, or $0.15 per basic and diluted share.
See the following section entitled "Non-GAAP Supplemental Financial Measure" for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to net income attributable to common stockholders and further discussion of the use of non-GAAP financial measures.
Portfolio and Leasing Summary
During the first quarter, net operating income for all operating properties that we acquired prior to January 1, 2016 and owned through March 31, 2017 ("Same-Store NOI") decreased 4.4% compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2016, and decreased 6.4% when compared to the same quarter in 2016. The decrease in Same-Store NOI was primarily a result of the expiration of our lease with Sybase Inc. ("Sybase") in January 2017, a 405,000 square foot lease with our second largest tenant as of December 31, 2016. Excluding Sybase, Same-Store NOI increased 5.0% compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2016 and increased 0.4% when compared to the same quarter in 2016.
When GAAP adjustments are excluded, Same-Store NOI decreased 7.4% compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2016, and decreased 7.1% when compared to the same quarter in 2016. When Sybase and GAAP adjustments are excluded, Same-Store NOI increased 4.0% compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2016 and increased 3.2% when compared to the same quarter in 2016.
During the first quarter, DPF signed 38 leases for approximately 359,000 square feet. On a comparable space basis, DPF signed 26 leases for approximately 274,000 square feet. The average growth in rents, on a GAAP basis, for the comparable leases signed in the first quarter was 16.9%. For the twelve months ended March 31, 2017, DPF signed 140 leases for approximately 1.2 million square feet. On a comparable basis, DPF signed 96 leases for approximately 761,000 square feet. The average growth in rents, on a GAAP basis, for the comparable leases signed in the last twelve months was 18.5%.
The overall portfolio percentage leased was 87.8% as of March 31, 2017, compared to 91.2% on December 31, 2016 and 90.2% on March 31, 2016. Same-store percentage leased was 87.8% at March 31, 2017, compared to 91.1% at December 31, 2016 and 92.8% at March 31, 2016.
