Senior Housing Properties Trust Announces 2014 First Quarter Results

May 02, 2014

Reports Normalized FFO of $0.43 Per Share

Continuing Accretive Acquisition Strategy and Further Diversifying Tenants While Maintaining Industry Leading Private Pay Portfolio

NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Senior Housing Properties Trust (NYSE: SNH) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

"We are pleased with our financial results and, in particular, with our strategic accomplishments during the first quarter," stated David Hegarty, President and Chief Operating Officer of SNH. "The pending acquisition of two, Class A, state-of-the-art biotech Medical Office Buildings is clearly a highlight and demonstrates our commitment to strengthening and diversifying our portfolio, making accretive acquisitions that improve shareholder value, and increasing the percentage of private pay assets."

Results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014:

Normalized funds from operations, or Normalized FFO, for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 were $80.1 million, or $0.43 per share. This compares to Normalized FFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 of $79.0 million, or $0.43 per share.

Net income was $38.6 million, or $0.21 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, compared to net income of $35.2 million, or $0.19 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. During the three months ended March 31, 2014, SNH recognized: (1) a gain on sale of properties of $156,000, or less than $0.01 per share, related to the sale of one senior living community previously classified as held for sale; and (2) impairment of assets charges of $721,000, or less than $0.01 per share, to reduce the carrying value of two properties (five buildings) leased to medical providers, medical related businesses, clinics and biotech laboratory tenants, or MOBs, included in discontinued operations to their aggregate estimated net sale price. Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2013 included an impairment of assets charge of $1.3 million, or less than $0.01 per share, to reduce the carrying value of one of SNH's properties to its estimated net sale price.

The weighted average number of common shares outstanding were 188.2 million and 184.6 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

A reconciliation of net income determined according to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, to funds from operations, or FFO, and Normalized FFO for the quarters ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 appears later in this press release.

Recent Investment and Sales Activities:

Since January 1, 2014, SNH has acquired one property. In April 2014, SNH acquired one MOB (one building) with 125,240 square feet for approximately $32.7 million, including the assumption of $15.6 million of mortgage debt and excluding closing costs. This property is known as the Texas Center for Athletes in the expanding South Texas Medical Center area of San Antonio, TX.

SNH currently has one property (two buildings) under agreement to be acquired for a purchase price of approximately $1.125 billion, excluding closing costs. In February 2014, SNH entered into an agreement to acquire this property with 1,651,037 gross building square feet. This recently built property is certified by the U.S. Green Building Council as a LEED® Gold property and it is located on the waterfront in Boston's Seaport District, Boston's fastest growing submarket. The property is 96% leased to Vertex Pharmaceuticals for an initial term ending in 2028. The closing of this purchase is expected to occur on or about May 7, 2014.

In January 2014, SNH sold one assisted living facility with 36 units located in Kerrville, TX for $2.4 million, excluding closing costs. As a result, SNH recorded a gain on sale of $156,000. In April 2014, SNH sold one MOB with 210,879 square feet located in Manchester, NH for $5.0 million, excluding closing costs.

SNH is also currently marketing for sale nine senior living communities with 708 living units and three MOBs (six buildings) with 620,620 square feet. The majority of the combined revenues generated from the nine senior living communities listed for sale come from government funded programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid. The results of operations from the three MOBs (six buildings) listed for sale and the one MOB (one building) sold in April 2014 are included in discontinued operations in SNH's financial statements.

Recent Financing Activities:

In April 2014, SNH issued 15,525,000 common shares in a public offering, raising gross proceeds of approximately $337.7 million, before underwriting discounts and expenses. SNH used the net proceeds of this offering (approximately $323.3 million after underwriting discounts and before expenses) to repay borrowings outstanding under its revolving, unsecured credit facility and the remainder will be used for general business purposes, including the partial funding of the pending acquisition of buildings leased to Vertex described above.

In April 2014, SNH sold $400 million of 3.25% senior unsecured notes due 2019 and $250 million of 4.75% senior unsecured notes due 2024, raising net proceeds of approximately $644.9 million after underwriting discounts and before expenses. SNH plans to use the net proceeds of this offering for general business purposes, including partially funding the pending acquisition described above.

Simultaneous with entering the agreement to acquire the MOB property in Boston, MA described above, SNH received a term loan commitment for $800 million from Jefferies Finance, LLC and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. The term loan will have an interest rate of LIBOR plus 140 basis points, can be repaid in part or whole at any time without penalty and will mature five years from closing. SNH currently intends to utilize approximately $350 million of the commitment and may not draw the balance. This term loan is expected to be syndicated to a group of lenders, and the term loan is expected to close during the second quarter of 2014.

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

Net income $ 38,580 $ 35,235
Depreciation expense from continuing operations 38,355 37,703

FFO per share $ 0.41   $ 0.41
Normalized FFO per share $ 0.43   $ 0.43

(1) SNH calculates FFO and Normalized FFO as shown above. FFO is calculated on the basis defined by The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, which is net income, calculated in accordance with GAAP, excluding any gain or loss on sale of properties and impairment of real estate assets, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, as well as certain other adjustments currently not applicable to SNH. SNH's calculation of Normalized FFO differs from NAREIT's definition of FFO because SNH's includes estimated percentage rent in the period to which it estimates that it relates rather than when it is recognized as income in accordance with GAAP and excludes acquisition related costs, gain or loss on early extinguishment of debt, gain or loss on lease terminations, estimated business management incentive fees and loss on impairment of intangible assets, if any. SNH considers FFO and Normalized FFO to be appropriate measures of operating performance for a real estate investment trust, or REIT, along with net income, operating income and cash flow from operating activities. SNH believes that FFO and Normalized FFO provide useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical amounts, such as depreciation expense, FFO and Normalized FFO may facilitate a comparison of its operating performance between periods and with other REITs. FFO and Normalized FFO are among the factors considered by SNH's Board of Trustees when determining the amount of distributions to shareholders. Other factors include, but are not limited to, requirements to maintain its status as a REIT, limitations in its revolving credit facility agreement, term loan agreement, if any, and public debt covenants, the availability of debt and equity capital, SNH's expectation of its future capital requirements and operating performance and its expected needs and availability of cash to pay its obligations. FFO and Normalized FFO do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, operating income or cash flow from operating activities, determined in accordance with GAAP, or as indicators of SNH's financial performance or liquidity, nor are these measures necessarily indicative of sufficient cash flow to fund all of SNH's needs. These measures should be considered in conjunction with net income, operating income and cash flow from operating activities as presented in SNH's Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income and Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Other REITs and real estate companies may calculate FFO and Normalized FFO differently than SNH does.

(2) Amounts represent estimated incentive fees under SNH's business management agreement payable in common shares after the end of each calendar year calculated: (i) prior to 2014 based upon increases in annual Normalized FFO per share, as defined, and (ii) beginning in 2014 based on common share total return. In calculating net income in accordance with GAAP, SNH recognizes estimated business management incentive fee expense each quarter. Although SNH recognizes this expense each quarter for purposes of calculating net income, SNH does not include these amounts in the calculation of Normalized FFO until the fourth quarter, which is when the actual expense amount for the year is determined. Adjustments were made to prior period amounts to conform to current period Normalized FFO calculation.

(3) In calculating net income in accordance with GAAP, SNH recognizes percentage rental income received for the first, second and third quarters in the fourth quarter, which is when all contingencies are met and the income is earned. Although SNH defers recognition of this revenue until the fourth quarter for purposes of calculating net income, it includes these estimated amounts in its calculation of Normalized FFO for each quarter of the year. The fourth quarter Normalized FFO calculation excludes the amounts recognized during the first three quarters.
