"We continue to see a long runway of strong demand for single-family rentals driven by our country’s housing shortage and the increasing number of households that desire single-family living but prefer the ease of rental lifestyle. And as we close out 2021, our differentiated strategy has positioned us with a portfolio mix poised for the future of our country’s migration patterns, with a highly efficient operating platform and industry leading build-to-rent development program. We believe that this will enable American Homes 4 Rent to continue producing industry leading cash flow growth and shareholder value creation into 2022 and beyond."

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Net income attributable to common shareholders totaled $36.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $22.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily due to growth in the Company’s portfolio, a larger number of occupied properties and higher rental rates and fees, as well as lower financing costs as a result of the redemptions of our Series D and Series E perpetual preferred shares in the second quarter of 2021.

Rents and other single-family property revenues increased 10.3% to $339.6 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $307.9 million for the third quarter of 2020. Revenue growth was driven by an increase in our average occupied portfolio which grew to 52,889 homes for the third quarter of 2021, compared to 50,630 homes for the third quarter of 2020, as well as higher rental rates and fees.

Core NOI from our total portfolio increased 13.0% to $181.0 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $160.2 million for the third quarter of 2020. This growth was driven by an 11.2% increase in core revenues resulting from a larger number of occupied properties and higher rental rates and fees, partially offset by an 8.3% increase in core property operating expenses.

For the Company’s Same-Home portfolio, rents from single-family properties increased 6.6% to $245.5 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $230.2 million for the third quarter of 2020, which was driven by a 6.2% increase in Average Monthly Realized Rent per property and a 40 basis point increase in Average Occupied Days Percentage. This growth was further benefited by (i) 60 basis points of contribution from higher fees and (ii) 10 basis points from lower uncollectible rents, which resulted in 7.3% growth in core revenues from Same-Home properties. Core property operating expenses from Same-Home properties increased 5.7% to $90.4 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $85.5 million for the third quarter of 2020. As a result, Core NOI from Same-Home properties increased 8.2% to $155.9 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $144.1 million for the third quarter of 2020.

Core FFO attributable to common share and unit holders was $131.0 million, or $0.35 per FFO share and unit, for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $106.2 million, or $0.29 per FFO share and unit, for the third quarter of 2020. Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders was $113.3 million, or $0.30 per FFO share and unit, for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $89.6 million, or $0.25 per FFO share and unit, for the third quarter of 2020. These improvements were primarily attributable to growth in the Company’s portfolio, a larger number of occupied properties, higher rental rates and fees, as well as lower financing costs as a result of the redemptions of our Series D and Series E perpetual preferred shares in the second quarter of 2021.

Year-to-Date 2021 Financial Results

Net income attributable to common shareholders totaled $87.2 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021, compared to $58.2 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020. This increase was primarily due to growth in the Company’s portfolio, higher occupancy and higher rental rates and fees, as well as an increase in gain on sale and impairment of single-family properties and other, net and lower financing costs as a result of the redemptions of our Series D and Series E perpetual preferred shares in the second quarter of 2021, partially offset by a noncash charge related to these redemptions.

Rents and other single-family property revenues increased 10.3% to $965.8 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021, compared to $876.0 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020. Revenue growth was driven by an increase in our average occupied portfolio which grew to 52,269 homes for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021, compared to 49,764 homes for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020, as well as higher rental rates and fees, partially offset by increased uncollectible rents related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Core NOI from our total portfolio increased 13.3% to $527.4 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021, compared to $465.7 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020. This growth was driven by a 10.5% increase in core revenues resulting from a larger number of occupied properties and higher rental rates and fees, partially offset by increased uncollectible rents related to the COVID-19 pandemic and a 5.9% increase in core property operating expenses.

For the Company’s Same-Home portfolio, rents from single-family properties increased 6.3% to $721.9 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021, compared to $679.0 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020, which was driven by a 4.5% increase in Average Monthly Realized Rent per property and a 160 basis point increase in Average Occupied Days Percentage. This growth was (i) further benefited by 60 basis points of contribution from higher fees and (ii) partially offset by 30 basis points of drag from increased uncollectible rents related to the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in 6.6% growth in core revenues from Same-Home properties. Core property operating expenses from Same-Home properties increased 3.9% to $259.3 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021, compared to $249.6 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020. As a result, Core NOI from Same-Home properties increased 8.2% to $460.7 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021, compared to $425.8 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020.

Core FFO attributable to common share and unit holders was $370.7 million, or $0.99 per FFO share and unit, for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021, compared to $304.1 million, or $0.85 per FFO share and unit, for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020. Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021 was $328.3 million, or $0.88 per FFO share and unit, compared to $264.7 million, or $0.74 per FFO share and unit, for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020. These improvements were primarily attributable to growth in the Company’s portfolio, a larger number of occupied properties, higher rental rates and fees, as well as lower financing costs as a result of the redemptions of our Series D and Series E perpetual preferred shares in the second quarter of 2021.

Collections Update

Collections remain strong with the Company reporting bad debt equivalent to 1.7% of its third quarter 2021 rental billings for its Same-Home portfolio, which reflects benefits from strengthening underlying collections as well as government rental assistance programs. The Company has helped its residents access nearly $14 million related to these government assistance programs throughout the course of the pandemic and continues to work with residents on a case-by-case basis.

Portfolio

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had an occupancy percentage of 95.8%, compared to 97.1% as of June 30, 2021. The decrease in occupancy percentage is primarily attributable to higher volumes of recent acquisitions. The occupancy percentage on Same-Home properties was 98.0% as of September 30, 2021, compared to 98.2% as of June 30, 2021.

Investments

As of September 30, 2021, the Company’s wholly-owned portfolio consisted of 56,077 homes, compared to 54,785 homes as of June 30, 2021, an increase of 1,292 homes during the third quarter of 2021, which included 368 newly constructed properties delivered through our AMH Development Program and 1,014 homes acquired through our National Builder Program and traditional acquisition channel, partially offset by 90 homes sold. As of September 30, 2021, the Company had 604 properties held for sale, compared to 589 properties as of June 30, 2021. Also, as of September 30, 2021, the Company had an additional 1,729 properties held in unconsolidated joint ventures, representing a net increase of 199 properties, compared to 1,530 properties held in unconsolidated joint ventures as of June 30, 2021.

Capital Activities, Balance Sheet and Liquidity

In July 2021, American Homes 4 Rent, L.P. (the "Operating Partnership"), the entity through which the Company conducts substantially all of its business and owns, directly or through subsidiaries, substantially all of its assets, issued $450.0 million of 2.375% unsecured senior notes with a maturity date of July 15, 2031 and $300.0 million of 3.375% unsecured senior notes with a maturity date of July 15, 2051. Interest on the notes is payable semi-annually in arrears on January 15 and July 15 of each year, commencing on January 15, 2022. The Operating Partnership received aggregate net proceeds of $731.6 million from these issuances, after underwriting fees of approximately $5.6 million and a $12.8 million discount, and before offering costs of $1.4 million. The Operating Partnership used the net proceeds from this offering to repay amounts outstanding on its revolving credit facility and for general corporate purposes, including, without limitation, property acquisitions and developments, the expansion, redevelopment and/or improvement of existing properties in the Operating Partnership’s portfolio, other capital expenditures, the redemption of its preferred shares, the repayment of outstanding indebtedness, working capital and other general purposes.

In September 2021, the Company issued and physically settled 11,400,000 Class A common shares under the May 2021 forward sale agreements, receiving net proceeds of $399.0 million. As of September 30, 2021, 1,845,000 Class A common shares remained available for future settlement under the May 2021 forward sale agreements.

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $64.0 million and had total outstanding debt of $3.6 billion, excluding unamortized discounts and unamortized deferred financing costs, with a weighted-average interest rate of 4.0% and a weighted-average term to maturity of 12.7 years. The Company had no outstanding borrowings on its $1.25 billion revolving credit facility at the end of the quarter. Additionally, the Company has no debt maturities, other than recurring principal amortization, until 2024. During the third quarter of 2021, the Company generated $75.7 million of Retained Cash Flow and sold 90 properties generating $26.9 million of net proceeds.

2021 Guidance

The Company is providing revised 2021 guidance based on its current and expected views of the single-family rental market and general economic conditions. However, the extent to which the pandemic may continue to impact us and our residents will continue to depend on future developments. These include resurgences, new variants or strains, such as the Delta variant, the impact of government regulations, vaccine adoption rates (including boosters), the effectiveness of vaccines, employee retention issues resulting from vaccine mandates, and the direct and indirect economic effects of the pandemic and containment measures, among others. We will continue to monitor these events which may result in future revisions to our guidance estimates.

Changes to Full Year 2021 guidance:

  • Updates to Full Year 2021 guidance reflect strengthened core revenues outlook primarily driven by strong occupancy and leasing results as well as additional contribution from our external growth program which we have increased by approximately $200 million to a new range of $1.6 billion to $1.8 billion, which now includes between 3,700 and 4,100 wholly-owned inventory additions as well as increased investments into our wholly-owned land and development pipeline and pro-rata share of joint venture investments. When combined with 100% of gross joint venture investments, we now expect to deploy total gross capital of $1.8 billion to $2.0 billion for the year.

Note: The Company does not provide guidance for the most comparable GAAP financial measures of net income or loss, total revenues and property operating expenses, or a reconciliation of the above-listed forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures because we are unable to reasonably predict certain items contained in the GAAP measures, including non-recurring and infrequent items that are not indicative of the Company’s ongoing operations. Such items include, but are not limited to, net gain or loss on sales and impairment of single-family properties, casualty loss, Non-Same-Home revenues and Non-Same-Home property operating expenses. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors and could have a material impact on our GAAP results for the guidance period.

Defined Terms

Average Monthly Realized Rent
For the related period, Average Monthly Realized Rent is calculated as the lease component of rents and other single-family property revenues (i.e., rents from single-family properties) divided by the product of (a) number of properties and (b) Average Occupied Days Percentage, divided by the number of months. For properties partially owned during the period, this calculation is adjusted to reflect the number of days of ownership.

Average Occupied Days Percentage
The number of days a property is occupied in the period divided by the total number of days the property is owned during the same period after initially being placed in-service. This calculation excludes properties classified as held for sale.

Occupied Property
A property is classified as occupied upon commencement (i.e., start date) of a lease agreement, which can occur contemporaneously with or subsequent to execution (i.e., signature).

Recurring Capital Expenditures
For our Same-Home portfolio, Recurring Capital Expenditures includes replacement costs and other capital expenditures recorded during the period that are necessary to help preserve the value and maintain functionality of our properties. For our total portfolio, we calculate Recurring Capital Expenditures by multiplying (a) current period actual Recurring Capital Expenditures per Same-Home property by (b) our total number of properties, excluding newly acquired non-stabilized properties and properties classified as held for sale.

Same-Home Property
A property is classified as Same-Home if it has been stabilized longer than 90 days prior to the beginning of the earliest period presented under comparison. A property is removed from Same-Home if it has been classified as held for sale or has been taken out of service as a result of a casualty loss.

Stabilized Property
A property acquired individually (i.e., not through a bulk purchase) is classified as stabilized once it has been renovated by the Company or newly constructed and then initially leased or available for rent for a period greater than 90 days. Properties acquired through a bulk purchase are first considered non-stabilized, as an entire group, until (1) we have owned them for an adequate period of time to allow for complete on-boarding to our operating platform, and (2) a substantial portion of the properties have experienced tenant turnover at least once under our ownership, providing the opportunity for renovations and improvements to meet our property standards.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the Third Quarter 2021 Earnings Release and Supplemental Information Package include Funds from Operations attributable to common share and unit holders ("FFO attributable to common share and unit holders"), Core FFO attributable to common share and unit holders, Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders, Retained Cash Flow, Core NOI, Same-Home Core NOI and Same-Home Core NOI After Capital Expenditures, which are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these measures are helpful in understanding our financial performance and are widely used in the REIT industry. Because other REITs may not compute these financial measures in the same manner, they may not be comparable among REITs. In addition, these metrics are not substitutes for net income or loss or net cash flows from operating activities, as defined by GAAP, as measures of our operating performance, liquidity or ability to pay dividends. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in this press release and in the Third Quarter 2021 Earnings Release and Supplemental Information Package.

Included in acquisition, other transaction costs and other is a net $2.9 million nonrecurring expense related to a legal matter involving a former employee during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020.

(2)

Reflects the effect of potentially dilutive securities issuable upon the assumed vesting/exercise of restricted stock units and stock options and the dilutive effect of forward sale equity contracts under the treasury stock method.

FFO attributable to common share and unit holders is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate in accordance with the definition approved by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, which defines FFO as net income or loss calculated in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains and losses from sales or impairment of real estate, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs and depreciation of non-real estate assets), and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures to reflect FFO on the same basis.

Core FFO attributable to common share and unit holders is a non-GAAP financial measure that we use as a supplemental measure of our performance. We compute this metric by adjusting FFO attributable to common share and unit holders for (1) acquisition and other transaction costs incurred with business combinations and the acquisition or disposition of properties as well as nonrecurring items unrelated to ongoing operations, (2) noncash share-based compensation expense, (3) hurricane-related charges, net, which result in material charges to the impacted single-family properties, (4) gain or loss on early extinguishment of debt and (5) the allocation of income to our perpetual preferred shares in connection with their redemption.

Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders is a non-GAAP financial measure that we use as a supplemental measure of our performance. We compute this metric by adjusting Core FFO attributable to common share and unit holders for (1) Recurring Capital Expenditures that are necessary to help preserve the value and maintain functionality of our properties and (2) capitalized leasing costs incurred during the period. As a portion of our homes are recently developed, acquired and/or renovated, we estimate Recurring Capital Expenditures for our entire portfolio by multiplying (a) current period actual Recurring Capital Expenditures per Same-Home Property by (b) our total number of properties, excluding newly acquired non-stabilized properties and properties classified as held for sale.

We present FFO attributable to common share and unit holders, as well as on a per FFO share and unit basis, because we consider this metric to be an important measure of the performance of real estate companies, as do many investors and analysts in evaluating the Company. We believe that FFO attributable to common share and unit holders provides useful information to investors because this metric excludes depreciation, which is included in computing net income and assumes the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time. We believe that real estate values fluctuate due to market conditions and in response to inflation. We also believe that Core FFO and Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders, as well as on a per FFO share and unit basis, provide useful information to investors because they allow investors to compare our operating performance to prior reporting periods without the effect of certain items that, by nature, are not comparable from period to period.

FFO shares and units include weighted-average common shares and operating partnership units outstanding, as well as potentially dilutive securities.

Retained Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that we believe is helpful as a supplemental measure in assessing the Company’s liquidity. This metric is computed by reducing Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders by common distributions.

FFO, Core FFO and Adjusted FFO attributable to common share and unit holders and Retained Cash Flow are not substitutes for net income or net cash provided by operating activities, each as determined in accordance with GAAP, as a measure of our operating performance, liquidity or ability to pay dividends. These metrics also are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund future cash needs. Because other REITs may not compute these measures in the same manner, they may not be comparable among REITs.

Core Net Operating Income

Core NOI, which we also present separately for our Same-Home portfolio, is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that we define as core revenues, which is calculated as rents and other single-family property revenues, excluding expenses reimbursed by tenant charge-backs, less core property operating expenses, which is calculated as property operating and property management expenses, excluding noncash share-based compensation expense and expenses reimbursed by tenant charge-backs.

Core NOI also excludes (1) gain or loss on early extinguishment of debt, (2) hurricane-related charges, net, which result in material charges to the impacted single-family properties, (3) gains and losses from sales or impairments of single-family properties and other, (4) depreciation and amortization, (5) acquisition and other transaction costs incurred with business combinations and the acquisition or disposition of properties as well as nonrecurring items unrelated to ongoing operations, (6) noncash share-based compensation expense, (7) interest expense, (8) general and administrative expense, and (9) other income and expense, net. We believe Core NOI provides useful information to investors about the operating performance of our single-family properties without the impact of certain operating expenses that are reimbursed through tenant charge-backs. We further adjust Core NOI for our Same-Home portfolio by subtracting Recurring Capital Expenditures to calculate Same-Home Core NOI After Capital Expenditures, which we believe provides useful information to investors because it more fully reflects our operating performance after the impact of all property-level expenditures, regardless of whether they are capitalized or expensed.

Core NOI and Same-Home Core NOI After Capital Expenditures should be considered only as supplements to net income or loss as a measure of our performance and should not be used as measures of our liquidity, nor are they indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions. Additionally, these metrics should not be used as substitutes for net income or loss or net cash flows from operating activities (as computed in accordance with GAAP).

The following are reconciliations of core revenues, Same-Home core revenues, core property operating expenses, Same-Home core property operating expenses, Core NOI, Same-Home Core NOI and Same-Home Core NOI After Capital Expenditures to their respective GAAP metrics for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 (amounts in thousands):
