"2013 was another record year for CAPREIT as we benefited from our significant portfolio growth over the last three years and continuing strong occupancies and increases in average monthly rents," commented Thomas Schwartz, President and CEO. "We also further strengthened and diversified our property portfolio during the year, increasing our presence in our targeted geographic markets and entering new urban growth regions that serve to enhance our risk profile."

"Looking ahead, we believe 2014 will be another strong year for CAPREIT. Our recently-acquired properties are just beginning to benefit from our proven property management programs, and we expect to generate additional portfolio growth through the year. In addition, continuing strong fundamentals in the Canadian multi-unit residential rental sector should allow us to maintain our high occupancies and track record of stable increases in average monthly rents."

Operating Revenues

For the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013, total operating revenues increased by 10.6% and 15.7%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year primarily due to the contribution from acquisitions, higher average monthly rents, and continuing strong occupancies. For the three months and year ended December 31, 2013, ancillary revenues, including parking, laundry and antenna income, rose by 16.7% and 20.6%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year, due to contributions from acquisitions and Management's continued focus on maximizing the revenue potential of its property portfolio.

CAPREIT's annualized net rental revenue run-rate as at December 31, 2013 increased to $476.4 million, up 10.8% from $429.8 million as at December 31, 2012 primarily due to acquisitions completed within the past twelve months and strong rental growth. Net rental revenue run-rate net of dispositions for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $447.5 million (2012 - $386.3 million).

    properties disposed of in 2013.                                         

Average monthly rents for residential suites increased by 2.9% to $1,060 as at December 31, 2013 compared to last year while occupancy increased to 98.0% due to ongoing successful sales and marketing strategies and continued strength in the residential rental sector in the majority of CAPREIT's regional markets. Average monthly rents for residential suites owned prior to December 31, 2012 increased as at December 31, 2013 to $1,061 from $1,030 as at December 31, 2012, an increase of 3.0% from last year with occupancies rising to 98.2% from 97.8%. For the MHC land lease portfolio, average monthly rents decreased to $348 as at December 31, 2013, compared to $439 as at December 31 2012, primarily due to the recent acquisitions in lower rent geographic regions. Occupancy for the MHC portfolio was 97.6% at year end compared to 99.2% last year due to the acquisition of 2,808 MHC land lease sites acquired in the fourth quarter of 2013.

(1) Percentage of suites turned over or renewed during the period based on  
    the total number of residential suites (excluding co-ownerships) held at
    the end of the period.                                                  

The lower rate of growth in average monthly rents on lease renewals during 2013 compared to the prior year is primarily due to the lower mandated guideline increases for 2013 (Ontario - 2.5%, British Columbia - 3.8%), compared to the higher guideline increases in 2012 (Ontario - 3.1%, British Columbia - 4.3%). Management continues to pursue Above Guideline Increases ("AGI") applications where it believes increases are supported by market conditions above the annual guideline to raise average monthly rents on lease renewals. For 2014, the permitted guideline increase in Ontario and British Columbia have been set at 0.8% and 2.2%, respectively.

Operating Expenses

Overall operating expenses as a percentage of operating revenues increased slightly to 46.8% and 42.6% respectively for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 compared to 44.1% and 42.3% for last year, as a result of higher operating expenses for 2013 acquisitions, increased repairs and maintenance ("R&M") and in-suite maintenance costs, partially offset by lower wages and hydro costs in 2013 than last year.

Net Operating Income

In the three months ended December 31, 2013, NOI improved by $3.4 million or 5.4%, and the NOI margin decreased to 53.2% from 55.9% for last year. For the year ended December 31, 2013, NOI increased by $35.9 million or 15.1%, and the NOI margin remained stable at 57.4% compared to 57.7% for the same period last year. The slight decrease in NOI margin in 2013 was primarily the result of lower margin acquisitions completed in the last 12 month period partially offset by higher operating revenues.

For the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013, operating revenues for stabilized suites and sites increased 3.6% and 3.2% respectively, while operating expenses increased 11.5% and 3.4%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year. As a result, for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013, stabilized NOI decreased by 2.6% and increased by 3.0%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year.

Financial Strength

Management believes CAPREIT's strong balance sheet and liquidity position will enable it to continue to take advantage of acquisition and property capital investment opportunities over the long term.

CAPREIT is achieving its financing goals as demonstrated by the following key indicators:


--  Continues to maintain conservative ratio of total debt to gross book
    value as at December 31, 2013 of 47.32%; 
    
--  Debt service and interest coverage ratios for the year ended December
    31, 2013 improved to 1.54 times and 2.62 times compared to 1.52 times
    and 2.51 times, respectively, for last year; 
    
--  As at December 31, 2013, 93.9% (December 31, 2012 - 92.9%) of CAPREIT's
    mortgage portfolio was insured by the Canada Mortgage and Housing
    Corporation ("CMHC"), excluding the mortgages on CAPREIT's MHC land
    lease sites and the Ireland portfolio, resulting in improved spreads on
    mortgages and overall lower interest costs than conventional mortgages. 
    
--  The effective portfolio weighted average interest rate on mortgages has
    steadily declined to 3.76% as at December 31, 2013 from 3.87% as at
    December 31, 2012, resulting in significant potential interest rate
    savings in future years; 
    
--  Management expects to raise between $600 million and $650 million in
    total mortgage renewals and refinancings in 2013; 
    
--  The weighted average term to maturity of the mortgage portfolio has
    improved from 5.4 years to 6.0 years as at December 31, 2013; 
    
--  As at December 31, 2013, CAPREIT has investment properties with a fair
    value of $271.1 million that are not encumbered by mortgages and secure
    only the Acquisition and Operating Facility; 

Property Capital Investment Plan

During the year ended December 31, 2013, CAPREIT made property capital investments (excluding disposed properties, head office assets, tenant improvements and signage) of $157.9 million as compared to $128.3 million last year. For the full 2014 year, CAPREIT expects to complete property capital investments of approximately $165 million to $175 million, including approximately $87 million targeted at acquisitions completed since January 1, 2011 and approximately $22 million in high-efficiency boilers and other energy-saving initiatives.

Property capital investments include suite improvements, common areas and equipment, which generally tend to increase NOI more quickly. CAPREIT continues to invest in energy-saving initiatives, including boilers, energy-efficient lighting systems, and water-saving programs, which permit CAPREIT to mitigate potentially higher increases in utility and R&M costs and significantly improve overall portfolio NOI.

Subsequent Event

On January 31, 2014, the third party external management agreements for the performance of certain asset and property management services concluded. The 16 manufactured home communities in Colorado, Texas, Arizona and Michigan, which were managed by CAPREIT for a third party real estate owner, have been sold. The agreements were entered into on December 5, 2012.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

CAPREIT prepares and releases unaudited quarterly and audited consolidated annual financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS. In this and other earnings releases and investor conference calls, as a complement to results provided in accordance with IFRS, CAPREIT also discloses and discusses certain non-IFRS financial measures, including Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate, NOI, FFO, NFFO and applicable per Unit amounts and payout ratios. These non-IFRS measures are further defined and discussed in the MD&A released on February 28, 2014, which should be read in conjunction with this press release. Since Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate, NOI, FFO and NFFO are not determined by IFRS, they may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other issuers. CAPREIT has presented such non-IFRS measures as Management believes these non-IFRS measures are relevant measures of the ability of CAPREIT to earn and distribute cash returns to Unitholders and to evaluate CAPREIT's performance. A reconciliation of Net Income and such non-IFRS measures including Adjusted Funds From Operations ("AFFO") is included in this press release. These non-IFRS measures should not be construed as alternatives to net income (loss) or cash flow from operating activities determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of CAPREIT's performance.

Forward-looking information may relate to CAPREIT's future outlook and anticipated events or results and may include statements regarding the future financial position, business strategy, budgets, litigation, projected costs, capital investments, financial results, taxes, plans and objectives of or involving CAPREIT. Particularly, statements regarding CAPREIT's future results, performance, achievements, prospects, costs, opportunities and financial outlook, including those relating to acquisition and capital investment strategy and the real estate industry generally, are forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements are based on certain factors and assumptions regarding expected growth, results of operations, performance and business prospects and opportunities. In addition, certain specific assumptions were made in preparing forward-looking information, including: that the Canadian and Ireland economies will generally experience growth, however, may be adversely impacted by the global economy; that inflation will remain low; that interest rates will remain low in the medium term; that Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation ("CMHC") mortgage insurance will continue to be available and that a sufficient number of lenders will participate in the CMHC-insured mortgage program to ensure competitive rates; that the Canadian capital markets will continue to provide CAPREIT with access to equity and/or debt at reasonable rates; that vacancy rates for CAPREIT properties will be consistent with historical norms; that rental rates will grow at levels similar to the rate of inflation on renewal; that rental rates on turnovers will remain stable; that CAPREIT will effectively manage price pressures relating to its energy usage; and, with respect to CAPREIT's financial outlook regarding capital investments, assumptions respecting projected costs of construction and materials, availability of trades, the cost and availability of financing, CAPREIT's investment priorities, the properties in which investments will be made, the composition of the property portfolio and the projected return on investment in respect of specific capital investments.

Although the forward-looking statements contained in this press release are based on assumptions, Management believes they are reasonable as of the date hereof, there can be no assurance actual results will be consistent with these forward-looking statements; they may prove to be incorrect. Forward-looking statements necessarily involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond CAPREIT's control, that may cause CAPREIT or the industry's actual results, performance, achievements, prospects and opportunities in future periods to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
Want to enable self-service provisioning of application environments in minutes that mirror production? Can you automatically provide rich data with code-level detail back to the developers when issues occur in production? In his session at DevOps Summit, David Tesar, Microsoft Technical Evangelist on Microsoft Azure and DevOps, will discuss how to accomplish this and more utilizing technologies such as Microsoft Azure, Visual Studio online, and Application Insights in this demo-heavy session.
DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context. With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation. In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water,...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and asse...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
