Office Properties Income Trust Announces First Quarter 2021 Results
Office Properties Income Trust (Nasdaq: OPI) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.
Christopher Bilotto, President and Chief Operating Officer of OPI, made the following statement:
"We entered 2021 following strong performance in 2020 and continued that trend through the first quarter as evidenced by our increased liquidity and positive leasing results. Rent collections remained strong over the past year averaging above 99% and our balance sheet has over $930 million of liquidity allowing OPI to remain focused on our primary growth strategies through leasing and acquisitions.
In the first quarter, we completed 575,000 square feet of new and renewal leasing with a roll-up in rent of 3.2% and a weighted average lease term of 5.4 years. We also have a current leasing pipeline of over three million square feet that is in active discussion. We are encouraged by this activity as tenants continue to advance decisions for their office needs and believe our portfolio composition has benefited OPI throughout the pandemic."
Reconciliations of net income determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, to funds from operations, or FFO, Normalized FFO, CAD, net operating income, or NOI, and Cash Basis NOI, and a reconciliation of NOI to Same Property NOI and Same Property Cash Basis NOI, for the quarters ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 appear later in this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:
OPI presents certain "non-GAAP financial measures" within the meaning of the applicable rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, including FFO, Normalized FFO, CAD, NOI, Cash Basis NOI, Same Property NOI and Same Property Cash Basis NOI. These measures do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered alternatives to net income as indicators of OPI's operating performance or as measures of OPI's liquidity. These measures should be considered in conjunction with net income as presented in OPI's condensed consolidated statements of income. OPI considers these non-GAAP measures to be appropriate supplemental measures of operating performance for a real estate investment trust, or REIT, along with net income. OPI believes these measures provide useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical amounts, such as depreciation and amortization expense, they may facilitate a comparison of OPI's operating performance between periods and with other REITs and, in the case of NOI, Cash Basis NOI, Same Property NOI and Same Property Cash Basis NOI reflecting only those income and expense items that are generated and incurred at the property level may help both investors and management to understand the operations of OPI's properties.
Please see the pages attached hereto for a more detailed statement of OPI's operating results and financial condition and for an explanation of OPI's calculation of FFO, Normalized FFO, CAD, NOI, Cash Basis NOI, Same Property NOI and Same Property Cash Basis NOI and a reconciliation of those amounts to amounts determined in accordance with GAAP.
OPI is a REIT focused on owning, operating and leasing properties primarily leased to single tenants and those with high credit quality characteristics such as government entities. OPI is managed by the majority owned operating subsidiary of The RMR Group Inc. (Nasdaq: RMR), an alternative asset management company that is headquartered in Newton, Massachusetts.
