Portfolio Occupancy Rate
Portfolio occupancy rate measures the occupancy rate or the percentage area of a REIT’s property that has been leased. It is calculated as leased space divided by total leasable area. Portfolio occupancy rate is a measure of success that a REIT has had in attracting tenants and leasing the space it owns. The higher the occupancy rate for a REIT over time (compared to its peers), the better.
Same-store Net Operating Income (NIO) Growth (%)
Same-store net operating income (NIO) growth is a key measure of profitability for a retail REIT. It is growth that excludes certain non-cash and non-comparable items. Same-store NOI is calculated as same-store revenues minus same-store operating expenses, including property taxes.
Acquisition rate refers to the yield that is generated from an acquired property
Acquisition volume refers to the additions to a retail REIT’s portfolio of investment properties. This may take the form of transactions in real estate.
Development rate refers to yield that is generated from a property in development.
Development volume is a measure of a new construction or previously agreed upon re-developments.
Disposition rate refers to yield that is generated from a disposed property.
Disposition volume refers to the sale of real estate holdings by retail REITs.
Capitalization Rate (%)
Capitalization rate, or cap rate, is the initial yield on a real estate investment. Cap rate is computed by dividing the cash flow in year 1 by either the acquisition/disposition price or the total expected development cost.
Total Square Feet (K)
Total square feet (K) is the total amount of floor space available for rent to retail tenants.
Square Feet of Expiring Lease (K)
Square feet to expiring lease (K) is the number of square feet of lease which is expiring in a period.
Expiring Rent Per Square Feet
Expiring rent per square foot is the rent per square foot at the time of expiration of the lease.
New Rent Per Square Feet
New rent per square foot is the rent per square foot at the time of the new lease.
Total Potential Roll-Up/Down Per Square Feet
Total potential roll-up/down per square feet is the difference between rent per square foot at the time of a new lease vs an expiring lease.
Average Lease Term (Years)
Average lease term (years) measures the average period during which all leases in a retail REIT’s property or portfolio will expire.
Average Cost of Debt (%)
Average cost of debt (%) is a measure of the average interest rate paid to fund a retail business. It is calculated as interest expense paid divided by average debt (secured and unsecured loans and revolving credit facilities)
