Ventas Reports 13 Percent Increase In 2012 Normalized FFO To $3.80 Per Diluted Share

Stocks in this article: VTR

Ventas, Inc. (NYSE: VTR) (“Ventas” or the “Company”) said today that normalized Funds From Operations (“FFO”) for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased 44 percent to $1.1 billion, from $777.0 million for the comparable 2011 period. Normalized FFO per diluted common share was $3.80 for the year ended December 31, 2012, a 13 percent increase from $3.37 for the comparable 2011 period. Weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the full year rose by 28 percent to 294.5 million, compared to 230.8 million in 2011.

The substantial growth in 2012 normalized FFO per diluted common share compared to 2011 is due primarily to the Company's $2.7 billion of investments in 2012 and the full-year benefit of the Company's 2011 acquisitions, including Nationwide Health Properties, Inc. (“NHP”) and the portfolio of senior living communities managed by Atria Senior Living, Inc. (“Atria”). Additionally, the Company benefited from excellent performance by its seniors housing communities managed by Atria and Sunrise Senior Living, LLC (“Sunrise”), rental increases from its triple-net lease portfolio and lower weighted average interest rates. These benefits were partially offset by higher debt balances, an increase in the Sunrise management fee, increases in general and administrative expenses, asset sales and loan repayments in 2011 and 2012 and an increase in weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

“Ventas had another outstanding year of internal and external growth, execution of our long-term strategy and performance, delivering over 22 percent total returns to shareholders and producing record cash flows,” Ventas Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Debra A. Cafaro said. “Working collaboratively, our team harnessed the power of our scale and platform to make $2.7 billion in accretive private pay investments, raise capital efficiently and manage our assets to drive strong growth in 2012. For more than a dozen years, Ventas has fulfilled its commitments with consistent superior performance and a strong financial profile, sustaining excellence throughout our Company,” she added.
