Hudson Pacific Properties Updates Full-Year and Q3 2021 Outlook in Connection with Recent Acquisitions and Capital Markets Activity

Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc. (the "Company" or "Hudson Pacific") (NYSE: HPP) today increased its full-year and third quarter 2021 Funds From Operations (FFO) guidance to $1.94 to $2.00 per diluted share, excluding specified items, and $0.48 to $0.50 per diluted share, excluding specified items, respectively.

Specified items for the third quarter stemming from the transactions described below include $6.7 million of transaction-related expenses and $2.8 million of costs associated with the early extinguishment of debt. As a result, specified items for the full year, including those referenced in the Company’s second quarter SEC filings, include $7.8 million of transaction-related expenses, $1.4 million of prior-period supplemental property tax expenses and $2.8 million of costs associated with the early extinguishment of debt.

The revised estimates reflect the impact of three recent transactions, including the acquisitions of Star Waggons (closed August 31, 2021) and Zio Studio Services (closed August 17, 2021) for a combined $222 million (before closing costs and other adjustments), each funded with a combination of cash on hand and draws under the Company’s revolving credit facility. The combined impact of these acquisitions is approximately $0.04 and $0.01 per diluted share to the Company’s full-year and third quarter 2021 FFO guidance, respectively. A press release with additional details about the transactions can be found in the investors section of

The revised estimates also reflect the impact of refinancing the Company’s mortgage loan secured by its Hollywood Media Portfolio (the "Hollywood Media Portfolio Refinancing"). The new loan replaces the prior $900 million loan bearing LIBOR plus 2.15% per annum with a $1.1 billion loan bearing LIBOR plus 1.25%. Similar to the original loan, the new loan has a two-year term from the first payment date, with three one-year extension options, subject to certain requirements, and is non-recourse, except as to customary non-recourse carveouts. The Company purchased approximately $209.8 million of the Hollywood Media Portfolio Refinancing, which bears interest at a weighted average rate of LIBOR plus 2.08% per annum. While contributing to the revised guidance, the impact of this refinancing on a standalone basis is less than one full cent per diluted share to the Company’s full-year and third quarter 2021 FFO guidance, respectively.

On account of these transactions and earlier corporate activity, the Company has drawn $290 million under its unsecured revolving credit facility, leaving $310 million of undrawn capacity.

The FFO estimates reflect management’s view of current and future market conditions, including assumptions with respect to rental rates, occupancy levels and the earnings impact of events referenced in this press release and in earlier announcements. It otherwise excludes any impact from future unannounced or speculative acquisitions, dispositions, debt financings or repayments, recapitalizations, capital markets activity or similar matters. There can be no assurance that actual results will not differ materially from this estimate.

Below are some of the assumptions the Company used in providing this guidance (dollars and share data in thousands):

Please see non-GAAP information below for definition of cash NOI.


This estimate excludes approximately $1.0 million of a one-time, prior-period supplemental property tax expense related to ICON and CUE. Please see the Same-Store Analysis in the Company’s Second Quarter 2021 Supplemental Operating and Financial Information report for further detail regarding this expense.

Diluted shares represent ownership in the Company through shares of common stock, OP Units and other convertible or exchangeable instruments. The weighted average fully diluted common stock/units outstanding for 2021 includes an estimate for the dilution impact of stock grants to the Company's executives under its 2019, 2020 and 2021 long-term incentive programs. This estimate is based on the projected award potential of such programs as of the end of the most recently completed quarter, as calculated in accordance with the ASC 260, Earnings Per Share.

The Company does not provide a reconciliation for non-GAAP estimates on a forward-looking basis, including the information under "FFO Guidance" above, where it is unable to provide a meaningful or accurate calculation or estimation of reconciling items and the information is not available without unreasonable effort. This is due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing and/or amount of various items that would impact net income attributable to common stockholders per diluted share, which is the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measure. This includes, for example, acquisition costs and other non-core items that have not yet occurred, are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information. Forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures provided without the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures may vary materially from the corresponding GAAP financial measures.
