Easterly Government Properties, Inc.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited)

1. Organization and Basis of Presentation

The information contained in the following notes to the consolidated financial statements is condensed from that which would appear in the annual consolidated financial statements; accordingly, the consolidated financial statements included herein should be reviewed in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, and related notes thereto, included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K of Easterly Government Properties, Inc. (which may be referred to in these financial statements as the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) for the year ended December 31, 2017 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 1, 2018.

The Company is a Maryland corporation that has elected to be taxed as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) under the Internal Revenue Code, as amended (the “Code”) commencing with its taxable year ended December 31, 2015. The operations of the Company are carried on primarily through Easterly Government Properties LP (the “Operating Partnership”) and the wholly owned subsidiaries of the Operating Partnership.

We are an internally managed REIT, focused primarily on the acquisition, development, and management of Class A commercial properties that are leased to U.S. Government agencies that serve essential functions. We generate substantially all of our revenue by leasing our properties to such agencies, either directly or through the U.S. General Services Administration (“GSA”). Our objective is to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for our stockholders over the long term through dividends and capital appreciation.

As of March 31, 2018, we wholly owned 46 operating properties in the United States, including 44 operating properties that were leased primarily to U.S. Government tenant agencies and two operating properties that were entirely leased to private tenants, encompassing approximately 3.7 million square feet in the aggregate. In addition, we wholly owned three properties under development that we expect will encompass approximately 0.3 million square feet upon completion. We focus on acquiring, developing, and managing U.S. Government leased properties that are essential to supporting the mission of the tenant agency and strive to be a partner of choice for the U.S. Government, working with the tenant agency to meet its needs and objectives.

The Operating Partnership holds substantially all of our assets and conducts substantially all our business. The Company is the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership. The Company owned approximately 83.0% of the aggregate limited partnership interests in the Operating Partnership (“common units”) at March 31, 2018. We believe that we have operated and have been organized in conformity with the requirements for qualification and taxation as a REIT for U.S federal income tax purposes commencing with our taxable year ended December 31, 2015.

Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements are presented on the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and include the accounts of the Company, Easterly Government Properties TRS, LLC, Easterly Government Services, LLC, the Operating Partnership and its other subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Basis of Presentation

The condensed consolidated financial statements included herein are unaudited; however, they include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) which, in the opinion of management, are necessary to state fairly the consolidated financial position of the Company at March 31, 2018, and the consolidated results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 and the consolidated cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017. Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. The year-end condensed consolidated balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. The results of operations for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the balance sheet and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

The significant accounting policies used in the preparation of the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements are disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017.

Revision of Previously Reported Consolidated Financial Statements

In connection with the preparation of the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company identified an error in the estimated useful life utilized to amortize certain assets associated with three properties contributed at the time of the Company’s initial public offering in the first quarter of 2015. As a result of the error, Depreciation and amortization expense had been overstated and thereby Real estate properties, net, Intangible assets, net and Equity were understated. The Company concluded that the amounts are not material to any of its previously issued consolidated financial statements. However, to maintain proper comparability between our financial statements we have elected to revise prior periods. Accordingly, the Company revised these balances in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. The effects of this revision to the consolidated financial statements are as follows (in thousands, except for per share data).

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). Please refer to Note 10 for more information pertaining to our adoption of this guidance.

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230), which provides classification guidance for certain cash receipts and cash payments including payment of debt extinguishment costs, settlement of zero-coupon debt instruments, insurance claim payments and distributions from equity method investees. The guidance should be applied retrospectively, however the implementation of this update did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted and retrospectively applied ASU No. 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230), which requires that the statement of cash flows explain the change during the period in the total of cash, cash equivalents, and amounts generally described as restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents. The Company now reconciles both cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash in the accompanying Statements of Cash Flows for all periods, whereas under the prior guidance the Company explained the changes during the period for cash and cash equivalents only.

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU No. 2017-05, Other Income-Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets (Subtopic 610-20): Clarifying the Scope of Asset Derecognition Guidance and Accounting for Partial Sales of Nonfinancial Assets. This ASU clarifies the scope and accounting of a financial asset that meets the definition of an “in-substance nonfinancial asset” and defines the term “in-substance nonfinancial asset.”  This ASU also adds guidance for partial sales of nonfinancial assets.  The Company adopted this ASU using the modified retrospective method and the implementation of this update did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2017-09, Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope of Modification Accounting, which provides updated guidance about which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award would require an entity to apply modification accounting under the topic.  The guidance should be applied prospectively to an award modified on or after the adoption date, however, implementation of this update did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases, which sets out the principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases for both parties to a contract (i.e., lessees and lessors). The new standard requires lessees to apply

7

 


a dual approach, classifying leases as either finance or operating leases based on the principle of whether or not the lease is effectively a financed purchase of the leased asset by the lessee. This classification will determine whether the lease expense is recognized based on an effective interest method or on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. A lessee is also required to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term of greater than 12 months regardless of their classification. Leases with a term of 12 months or less will be accounted for in the same manner as operating leases today. As of March 31, 2018, the Company had a sublease for office space in Washington D.C. expiring in June 2021 and a lease for office space in San Diego, CA expiring in April 2022.  The remaining contractual payments under the Company’s lease and sublease for office space aggregate $1.7 million.

The new standard requires lessors to account for leases using an approach that is substantially equivalent to existing guidance for sales-type leases, direct financing leases and operating leases.  In connection with the new revenue guidance, we believe that the new revenue standard may apply to executory costs and other components of revenue deemed to be non-lease components, even when the revenue for such activities is not separately stipulated in the lease. In that case, we would need to separate the lease components of revenue due under leases from the non-lease components. Under the new guidance, we would continue to recognize the lease components of lease revenue on a straight-line basis over our respective lease terms as we do under prior guidance. However, we would recognize the non-lease components under the new revenue guidance as the related services are delivered. As a result, while the total revenue recognized over time would not differ under the new guidance, the recognition pattern could be different. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating the significance of the difference in the recognition pattern that would result from this change.

Additionally, ASU 2016-02 will require that lessees and lessors capitalize, as initial direct costs, only those costs that are incurred due to the execution of a lease.  Under ASU 2016-02, allocated payroll costs and other costs that are incurred regardless of whether the lease is obtained will no longer be capitalized as initial direct costs and instead will be expensed as incurred.  

ASU No. 2016-02 is effective for reporting periods beginning January 1, 2019, with modified retrospective application for each reporting period presented at the time of adoption. Early adoption is also permitted for this guidance. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of this new guidance.

In August 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging: Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities. The purpose of this updated guidance is to better align a company’s financial reporting for hedging activities with the economic objectives of those activities. The transition guidance provides companies with the option of either adopting the new standard early using a modified retrospective transition method in any interim period after issuance of the update, or alternatively adopting the new standard for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. This adoption method may require the Company to recognize the cumulative effect of initially applying the ASU as an adjustment to accumulated other comprehensive income with a corresponding adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings as of the beginning of the fiscal year that an entity adopts the update. While the Company continues to assess all potential impacts of the standard, we do not expect the adoption of this guidance to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

(1)

At March 31, 2018, the one-month LIBOR (“L”) was 1.88%. The current interest rate is not adjusted to include the amortization of deferred financing fees or debt issuance costs incurred in obtaining debt or any unamortized fair market value premiums. The spread over the applicable rate for the Company’s senior unsecured revolving credit facility and senior unsecured term loan facility is based on the Company’s consolidated leverage ratio, as defined in the respective loan agreements.

 

(2)

Available capacity of $301.2 million at March 31, 2018 with an accordion feature that provides additional capacity of up to $250.0 million, for a total facility size of not more than $650.0 million.

 

(3)

Our senior unsecured revolving credit facility has two six-month as-of-right extension options subject to certain conditions and the payment of an extension fee.

 

(4)

The interest rate is calculated based on two interest rate swaps with an effective date of March 29, 2017 with an aggregate notional value of $100.0 million, which effectively fix the interest rate at 3.17% annually, based on the Company’s consolidated leverage ratio, as defined in the senior unsecured term loan facility agreement.

 

(5)

Effective interest rates are as follows: CBP - Savannah 4.12%, ICE - Charleston 3.93%, MEPCOM - Jacksonville 3.89%, USFS II - Albuquerque 3.92%, DEA - Pleasanton 1.8%, VA – Loma Linda 3.78%.

Financial Covenant Considerations

The Company was in compliance with all financial and other covenants as of March 31, 2018 related to its senior unsecured revolving credit facility, senior unsecured term loan facility, senior unsecured notes payable and secured mortgage notes payable.

10

 


Fair Value of Debt

As of March 31, 2018, the carrying value of our senior unsecured revolving credit facility approximated fair value. In determining the fair value we considered the short term maturity, variable interest rate and credit spreads. We deem the fair value of our senior unsecured revolving credit facility as a Level 3 measurement.

As of March 31, 2018, the carrying value of our senior unsecured term loan facility approximated fair value. In determining the fair value we considered the variable interest rate and credit spreads. We deem the fair value of our senior unsecured term loan facility as a Level 3 measurement.

At March 31, 2018, the fair value of our notes payable was determined by discounting future contractual principal and interest payments using prevailing market rates. We deem the fair value measurement of our notes payable instruments as a Level 3 measurement. At March 31, 2018, the fair value of our notes payable was $172.9 million.

At March 31, 2018, the fair value of our mortgage debt was determined by discounting future contractual principal and interest payments using prevailing market rates. We deem the fair value measurement of our mortgage debt instruments as a Level 3 measurement. At March 31, 2018, the fair value of our mortgage debt was $198.2 million. 

 

 

5. Derivatives and Hedging Activities

As of March 31, 2018, the Company had two outstanding interest rate swaps with an aggregate notional value of $100.0 million that were designated as cash flow hedges. The swaps had an effective date of March 29, 2017 and extend until the maturity of our senior unsecured term loan facility on September 29, 2023. The swaps effectively fix the interest rate under our senior unsecured term loan facility at 3.17% annually based on the Company’s current consolidated leverage ratio and a variable interest rate of one-month LIBOR.

Cash Flow Hedges of Interest Rate Risk

As of March 31, 2018 our swaps were classified as an asset on our consolidated balance sheet at $5.9 million. The effective portion of changes in the fair value of derivatives designated and qualified as cash flow hedges is recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income and will be reclassified to interest expense in the period that the hedged forecasted transactions affect earnings on the Company’s variable rate debt.  The ineffective portion of the change in fair value of the derivatives is recognized directly in earnings into interest expense.  For the three months ended March 31, 2018 and March 31, 2017 the amount of unrealized gains recognized in accumulated other comprehensive income on interest rate swaps was $1.9 million and $0.1 million, respectively. For the three months ended March 31, 2018 the amount of gain reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive income into interest expense was less than $0.1 million. For the three months ended March 31, 2017 the amount of loss reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive income into interest expense was less than $0.1 million.  Additionally, during the three months ended March 31, 2018 and March 31, 2017, there Company did not record any hedge ineffectiveness.

The Company estimates that $0.7 million will be reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive income as a decrease to interest expense over the next 12 months.

Credit-Risk-Related Contingent Features

The Company has agreements with each of its derivative counterparties that contain a provision where the Company could be declared in default on its derivative obligations if repayment of the underlying indebtedness is accelerated by the lender due to the Company’s default on such indebtedness.  As of March 31, 2018, the Company did not have any derivatives in a net liability position.

 

 

6. Fair Value Measurements

Accounting standards define fair value as the exit price, or the amount that would be received upon sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.  The standards also establish a hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available.  Observable inputs are inputs market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of us.  Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect our assumptions about the factors market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability developed based upon the best information available in the circumstances.  The hierarchy of these inputs is broken down into three levels: Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets; Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable; and Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data

11

 


exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions. Categorization within the valuation hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is most significant to the fair value measurement.

Recurring fair value measurements

The fair values of our interest rate swaps are determined using widely accepted valuation techniques, including discounted cash flow analysis on the expected cash flows of each derivative. This analysis reflects the contractual terms of the derivatives, including the period to maturity, and uses observable market-based inputs, including interest rate curves and implied volatilities in such interest rates.   While the Company determined that the majority of the inputs used to value its derivatives fall within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy, the credit valuation adjustments associated with its derivatives utilize Level 3 inputs, such as estimates of current credit spreads to evaluate the likelihood of default by the Company and its counterparties.  The Company has determined that the significance of the impact of the credit valuation adjustments made to its derivative contracts, which determination was based on the fair value of each individual contract, was not significant to the overall valuation. As a result, all of the Company’s derivatives held as of March 31, 2018 were classified as Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.  

The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts receivable, other assets and accounts payable and accrued expenses are reasonable estimates of fair values because of the short maturities of these instruments. For our disclosure of debt fair values in Note 4, we estimated the fair value of our unsecured senior revolving credit facility based on the short term maturity, variable interest rates and credit spreads (categorized within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy), estimated the fair value of our senior unsecured term loan facility based on the variable interest rate and credit spreads (categorized within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy) and estimated the fair value of our other debt based on the discounted estimated future cash payments to be made on such debt (categorized within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy); the discount rates used approximate current market rates for loans, or groups of loans, with similar maturities and credit quality, and the estimated future payments included scheduled principal and interest payments.  Fair value estimates are made as of a specific point in time, are subjective in nature and involve uncertainties and matters of significant judgment.  Settlement at such fair value amounts may not be possible and may not be prudent management decision.

The table below presents the Company’s assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2018, aggregated by the level in the fair value hierarchy within which those measurements fall.

The Company granted 891,000 long term incentive plan units in our operating partnership (“LTIP units”) on May 6, 2015 and 40,000 LTIP units on February 26, 2016 to members of management as long-term incentive compensation under the 2015 Equity Incentive Plan, subject to the Company achieving certain absolute and relative total shareholder returns through the performance period, which ended on December 31, 2017.  Based on the Company’s absolute and relative total shareholder return performance through the end of the performance period, the compensation committee determined that an aggregate of 2,079,297 LTIP units were earned. Under the terms of the awards, earned awards vested 50% on February 15, 2018 with the remaining 50% vesting on February 6, 2019, subject to the grantee’s continued employment.

On January 4, 2018, the Company granted an aggregate of 173,381 performance-based LTIP units to members of management, subject to the Company achieving certain absolute and relative total shareholder returns through the performance period.  The awards consist of three separate tranches of 32,448 LTIP units, 55,463 LTIP units and 85,470 LTIP units with performance periods ending on December 31, 2018, December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2020, respectively. The performance criteria for each tranche is based 75% on the Company’s absolute total shareholder return performance and 25% on the Company’s relative total shareholder return performance during the relevant performance period, with 50% of the LTIP Units vesting when earned following the end of the applicable performance period and 50% of the earned award subject to an additional one year of vesting.
