Silver Bay Realty Trust Corp. Reports Fourth Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Completed Initial Public Offering and Formation Transactions, Acquired Portfolio of Over 3,400 Single-Family Properties

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Silver Bay Realty Trust Corp. (NYS: SBY) or "Silver Bay," or "the Company," a real estate investment trust that focuses on the acquisition, renovation, leasing and management of single-family properties, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2012.


  • Completed an initial public offering, which resulted in net proceeds of approximately $263.3 million (including proceeds of approximately $34.8 million attributable to the exercise of the underwriters' overallotment option on January 7, 2013)
  • Managed portfolio of over 3,400 single-family properties located in ten markets across seven states as of December 31, 2012
  • Realized an average monthly rent per leased property of $1,148
  • Held cash and cash equivalents of $228.1 million and $19.7 million in escrow deposits

"We are proud to be the first publicly traded, single-family property REIT," said David N. Miller, Silver Bay's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Silver Bay is capitalizing on a generational opportunity to acquire undervalued single-family properties in markets with strong demographic and macroeconomic indicators. Additionally, we continue to build our institutional platform in order to grow our business and capture operational efficiencies."

Financial Results

Silver Bay reported fourth quarter 2012 total revenue of $2.8 million. Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the fourth quarter was $3.2 million, or ($0.04) per diluted share.

Formation and Financial Presentation

Concurrently with Silver Bay's initial public offering, the Company completed a series of merger and contribution transactions through which Silver Bay acquired Two Harbors Property Investment LLC (now Silver Bay Property Investment LLC), or its Predecessor, and entities managed by Provident Real Estate Advisors LLC, or the Provident Entities. Silver Bay's Predecessor is considered the acquiring or surviving entity for accounting purposes. Given Silver Bay's formation date of December 19, 2012, the financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012 reflect an abbreviated operating period of twelve days for the Provident Entities in addition to the full year financial performance of its Predecessor.

The historical balances of Silver Bay's Predecessor have been reflected at carryover basis in Silver Bay's consolidated financial statements for 2012. The assets and liabilities of the Provident Entities' have been recorded at their fair value upon acquisition.

In the first quarter of 2012, Silver Bay's Predecessor began acquiring a portfolio of single-family properties. A substantial number of these properties did not generate revenue for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012 as they were still in the stabilization phase, or the period before a property becomes income producing.

Portfolio Summary and Operating Metrics

Silver Bay managed a portfolio of 3,405 single-family properties as of December 31, 2012. During the fourth quarter, Silver Bay and its Predecessor acquired 857 properties in the fourth quarter, exclusive of the acquisition of the 881 properties owned by the Provident Entities. The Company achieved an occupancy rate of 96% and an average monthly rent of $1,148 on 1,779 properties that were stabilized as of December 31, 2012. Silver Bay reported an occupancy rate of 83% and an average monthly rent of $1,143 on 1,583 properties that were owned for a minimum of six months. A total of 1,705 single-family properties of the aggregate portfolio were leased as of December 31, 2012, resulting in an occupancy rate of 50%. The occupancy rate of the aggregate portfolio is not indicative of the portfolio's expected performance due to the significant number of recently acquired properties and those still in the stabilization phase. A summary of Silver Bay's occupancy rates in addition to Silver Bay's supplementary definition of stabilized properties are included in the financial and operating tables accompanying this press release.

Public Stock Offerings

On December 19, 2012, Silver Bay completed an initial public offering of common stock. The offering resulted in the issuance of 13,250,000 shares of common stock for net proceeds of approximately $228.5 million. Subsequent to quarter end, Silver Bay issued an additional 1,987,500 shares of common stock pursuant to the underwriters' over-allotment option for net proceeds of approximately $34.8 million. Silver Bay intends to use the net proceeds from these offerings to purchase additional single-family properties, to renovate such properties for rental to residents and for working capital.
