Emeritus Announces Operating Results For First Quarter 2012

Stocks in this article: ESC

The Company’s same community operating expenses decreased to $193.5 million in the first quarter of 2012 compared to $193.6 million in the prior-year period, as the Company continued to benefit from cost controls implemented in 2011. Operating expenses reflected a 0.2% decrease in salary and wages as well as decreases in health insurance and other employee benefits and utilities; these decreases were partially offset by increases in professional liability insurance and certain other expense categories. On a per-resident-day basis, same community salaries and wages decreased by 1.9%.

Same community operating income increased by $0.5 million to $96.1 million in the first quarter of 2012 and community operating income margin increased from 33.0% to 33.2% as compared to the first quarter of 2011.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA/EBITDAR and CFFO are financial measures of operating performance that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful in identifying trends in day-to-day performance because they exclude items that are of little or no significance to operations and provide indicators to management of progress in achieving optimal operating performance. In addition, these measures are used by many research analysts and investors to evaluate the performance and the value of companies in the senior living industry. The Company strongly urges you to review the reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA/EBITDAR and the reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to CFFO, provided below, along with the Company’s consolidated balance sheets, statements of operations, and statements of cash flows. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA/EBITDAR and CFFO and provides other information about these non-GAAP measures in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
