Combined Operating Results For The Three Months Ended
Total revenue during the
for the same quarter a year ago. Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter remained relatively flat compared to the same quarter a year ago. As a result, income from operations increased
for the same quarter a year ago. The primary reasons for the changes in total revenue and total operating expenses are discussed below in connection with the Company’s segment operating results.
Interest expense during the
for the same quarter a year ago. The Company had
of notes payable at
of gain on sale primarily associated with the disposition of 12655 Jefferson Boulevard during the
, with no comparable activity for the same quarter last year.
Segment Operating Results For The Three Months Ended
Total revenue at the Company’s office properties increased
for the same quarter a year ago. The increase was primarily due to a
increase in rental revenue to
increase in parking and other revenue to
, offset by a
decrease in tenant recoveries to
. The increase in rental revenue largely resulted from higher rents and occupancy throughout the Company’s same-store portfolio together with rental revenue associated with the acquisitions of 11601 Wilshire Boulevard, Hill7 and Page Mill Hill, partially offset by the dispositions of Bayhill Office Center (sold in January 2016) and One Bay Plaza (sold in June 2016). The increase in parking and other revenue is primarily attributable to additional parking income generated by higher occupancy throughout the Company’s same-store portfolio together with parking and other revenue associated with the aforementioned acquisitions. The decrease in tenant recoveries is largely due to a recovery adjustment following the favorable property tax reassessments of 1455 Market Street and Clocktower Square.
Office property operating expenses from continuing operations increased
for the same quarter a year ago. The increase primarily resulted from the aforementioned acquisitions, as well as higher occupancy throughout the Company’s in-service portfolio, partially offset by the 1455 Market Street favorable property tax reassessment and the sales of Bayhill Office Center and One Bay Plaza.
Net operating income with respect to the Company’s
same-store office properties for the
quarter increased by
on a GAAP basis and by
on a cash basis. The cash basis net operating income increase was muted by the September 1, 2016 commencement of a rent and square footage reduction with Weil Gotshal at Towers at Shore Center under a lease amendment entered into on December 18, 2014, prior to the Company’s acquisition of that property from Blackstone. The Company estimates that
quarter cash basis net operating income generated by its
same-store office properties would have increased approximately 14.4% under the prior lease terms with Weil Gotshal.

leased, respectively. During the quarter, the Company executed
Media and Entertainment Properties
Total revenue at the Company’s media and entertainment properties increased
for the same quarter a year ago, primarily due to a
increase in tenant recoveries to
. The increase in rental revenue largely stemmed from higher occupancy at Sunset Gower and Sunset Bronson, including certain stage and office space at Sunset Bronson taken off-
line for improvements during the first quarter of 2015 and brought back on-line and fully occupied over the three months ended September 30, 2016. The increase in tenant recoveries largely stemmed from higher recoveries for current and prior year expenses attributable to KTLA at Sunset Bronson. Total media and entertainment operating expenses increased
for the same quarter a year ago, largely due to higher occupancy at Sunset Gower and Sunset Bronson.

NFL Enterprises executed a two-year extension through June 2021 of its 167,606-square-foot lease at 10900 and 10950 Washington Boulevard in Culver City. NFL Enterprises continues to occupy the entirety of 10900 and 10950 Washington Boulevard, where it utilizes both office space and sound stages to broadcast the NFL Network.
Netflix executed a lease to fully occupy all 91,953 square feet at the Company’s CUE development in Hollywood through December 2026. Designed by Gensler and currently under construction, CUE is a Class-A, creative office environment directly adjacent to the Company’s ICON development on the Sunset Bronson lot. Netflix had already leased all 323,000 square feet of space at ICON.
Netflix also executed an agreement to lease multiple stages and production offices at Sunset Bronson totaling 99,250 square feet through December 2026. The deal enables Netflix to keep its stage and production teams close to its new Los Angeles headquarters at ICON and CUE.
Qualys, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, executed a 10-year lease for 75,275 square feet at 919 Hillsdale Drive, part of the Company’s Metro Center complex in Foster City. Tenant’s possession of the space commences February 2017 for purposes of tenant improvements, with cash rents commencing in May 2018.

-square-foot, Class-A office tower, known as “Hill7,” for $180.0 million before certain prorations and closing costs. Pursuant to the joint venture, CPPIB owns a 45% interest in the property and Hudson Pacific owns a 55% interest. The Company will act as managing member responsible for property management, leasing and construction. Located at 1099 Stewart Street in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, directly adjacent to the Company’s Met Park North asset, this newly constructed, 11-story office building is currently

The Company is providing full-year
FFO guidance in the range of $1.93 to $2.03 per diluted share excluding specified items. This guidance assumes the use of $45.0 million of proceeds from the completed sale of 222 Kearny Street and the use of $35.0 million of proceeds from the anticipated sale of 3402 Pico Boulevard in late March toward the repayment of amounts outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility. This guidance also assumes full-year
weighted average fully diluted common stock/units of 147,357,000 (including 1,000,000 shares of unvested restricted stock). As is always the case, the full-year
FFO estimate reflects 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, but otherwise excludes any impact from future unannounced or speculative acquisitions, dispositions, debt financings or repayments, recapitalizations, capital market activity or similar matters.
The Company does not provide a reconciliation for non-GAAP estimates on a forward-looking basis, including the information under “
Outlook” 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, the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measure, including, 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.

International callers should

Use of Non-GAAP Information
The Company calculates funds from operations before non-controlling interest (FFO) in accordance with the standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT). FFO represents net income (loss), computed in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable operating property, real estate depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of above/below market lease intangible assets and liabilities and amortization of deferred financing costs and debt discounts/premium) and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company uses FFO as a supplemental performance measure because, in excluding real estate depreciation and amortization and gains and losses from property dispositions, it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, captures trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs. The Company also believes that, as a widely recognized measure of the performance of REITs, FFO will be used by investors as a basis to compare its operating performance with that of other REITs. However, because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization and captures neither the changes in the value of the Company’s properties that results from use or market conditions nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of its properties, all of which have real economic effect and could materially impact the Company’s results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of the Company’s performance is limited. Other equity REITs may not calculate FFO in accordance with the NAREIT definition and, accordingly, the Company’s FFO may not be comparable to such other REITs’ FFO. Accordingly, FFO should be considered only as a supplement to net income as a measure of the Company’s performance. FFO should not be used as a measure of the Company’s liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund the Company’s cash needs, including the Company’s ability to pay dividends. FFO should not be used as a supplement to or substitute for cash flow from operating activities computed in accordance with GAAP.
The Company evaluates performance based upon property net operating income (NOI) from continuing operations. NOI is not a measure of operating results or cash flows from operating activities as measured by GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to income from continuing operations, as an indication of the Company’s performance, or as an alternative to cash flows as a measure of liquidity, or the Company’s ability to make distributions. All companies may not calculate NOI in the same manner. The Company considers NOI to be a useful performance measure to investors and management, because when compared across periods, NOI reflects the revenues and expenses directly associated with owning and operating the Company’s properties and the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs, providing a perspective not immediately apparent from income from continuing operations. The Company calculates net operating income as net income (loss) excluding corporate general and administrative expenses, depreciation and amortization, impairments, gains/losses on sales of real estate, interest expense, acquisition-related expenses and other non-operating items. The Company defines NOI as operating revenues (including rental revenues, other property-related revenue, tenant recoveries and other operating revenues), less property-level operating expenses (which includes external management fees, if any, and property-level general and administrative expenses). NOI on a cash basis is NOI on a GAAP basis, adjusted to exclude the effect of straight-line rent and other non-cash adjustments required by GAAP. The Company believes that NOI on a cash basis is helpful to investors as an additional measure of operating performance because it eliminates straight-line rent and other non-cash adjustments to revenue and expenses.
