Omega Announces Fourth Quarter 2011 Financial Results; Adjusted FFO Of $0.50 Per Share For The Fourth Quarter; And $334 Million Of New Investments

For the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2011, the Company reported net income of $52.6 million and net income available to common stockholders of $47.5 million, or $0.46 per diluted common share on operating revenues of $292.2 million. This compares to net income of $58.4 million and net income available to common stockholders of $49.4 million, or $0.52 per diluted common share on operating revenues of $258.3 million, for the same period in 2010.

The year-to-date decrease in net income was primarily due to: (i) impairment charges during the first quarter of 2011 primarily related to four Connecticut facilities; (ii) provisions for uncollectible accounts and notes receivables related to a former operator; and (iii) income during the first quarter of 2010 associated with cash received from a legal settlement. These decreases were partially offset by additional income associated with $975 million of new investments made throughout 2010 and 2011. Those investments include approximately $825 million in combined facility acquisitions and capital improvement spending on the Company’s existing portfolio and $150 million in new mortgage investments. In addition to the aforementioned items, net income available to common stockholders was also reduced by a non-cash charge related to the redemption of the Company’s 8.375% Series D Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock in the first quarter of 2011.
