Senior Housing Properties Trust Announces Results for the Period Ended March 31, 2010

May 04, 2010

NEWTON, Mass., May 04, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Senior Housing Properties Trust (NYSE: SNH) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2010.

Results for the quarter ended March 31, 2010:

Funds from operations, or FFO, for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 were $54.8 million, or $0.43 per share. This compares to FFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 of $52.1 million, or $0.44 per share.

Net income was $30.0 million, or $0.24 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2010, compared to net income of $31.5 million, or $0.27 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2009.

The weighted average number of common shares outstanding totaled 127.4 million and 117.9 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively.

A reconciliation of net income determined according to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, to FFO appears later in this press release.

Recent Activities:

In April 2010, we acquired a medical office building located in Colorado with 14,695 rentable square feet for approximately $4.5 million, excluding closing costs. We funded this acquisition using cash on hand and by assuming a mortgage loan totaling $2.5 million with an interest rate of 6.73% per annum.

In April 2010, we entered into a purchase and sale agreement to acquire a medical office building located in Texas with approximately 55,800 rentable square feet for approximately $12.2 million, excluding closing costs. We expect to fund this acquisition using cash on hand and borrowings under our revolving credit facility, if necessary. The purchase of this property is contingent upon completion of our diligence and other customary closing conditions; accordingly, we can provide no assurance that we will purchase this property.

In April 2010, we sold $200.0 million of senior unsecured notes. The notes require interest at a fixed rate of 6.75% per annum and are due in 2020. Net proceeds from the sale of the notes, after underwriting discounts and other expenses, were approximately $195.0 million. Interest on the notes is payable semi-annually in arrears. No principal payments are due until maturity. We used a portion of the net proceeds of this offering to repay $58.0 million in borrowings under our revolving credit facility and we intend to use the remaining net proceeds of this offering to fund the redemption of our $97.5 million outstanding 7.875% senior notes due 2015 and for general business purposes, including pending and possible future acquisitions. In April 2010, we called all of the outstanding 7.875% senior notes due 2015 for redemption on May 17, 2010.

Funds from Operations

(in thousands, except per share data)

(unaudited)

Calculation of Funds from Operations (FFO) (1):

Quarter Ended March 31,
2010 2009
Net income $29,984 $31,533
Add: Depreciation expense 22,289 18,389
Acquisition costs 35 112
Deferred percentage rent (2) 2,500 2,100
FFO $54,808 $52,134
Weighted average shares outstanding 127,380 117,853
FFO per share $0.43 $0.44
Distributions declared $0.36 $0.35

(1) We compute FFO as shown above. Our calculation of FFO differs from the definition of FFO by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, because we include deferred percentage rent, if any, exclude impairment of assets, if any, and exclude acquisition costs, if any, in the determination of FFO. We consider FFO to be an appropriate measure of performance for a REIT, along with net income and cash flow from operating, investing and financing activities. We believe that FFO provides useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical amounts, such as depreciation expense, acquisition costs and gain or loss on sale of properties, FFO can facilitate a comparison of operating performances by a REIT over time and among REITs. FFO does not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered an alternative to net income or cash flow from operating activities as a measure of financial performance or liquidity. Also, other REITs may calculate FFO differently than we do.

(2) Our percentage rents are generally calculated on an annual basis. We recognize percentage rental income received during the first, second and third quarters in the fourth quarter when all contingencies related to percentage rents are satisfied. Although recognition of this revenue is deferred until the fourth quarter, our FFO calculation for the first three quarters includes estimated amounts of deferred percentage rents with respect to those periods. The fourth quarter calculation of FFO excludes the amounts recognized during the first three quarters.
