2012 Annual Consolidated Results
Community and management fee revenues increased $133.3 million, or 10.6%, to $1.39 billion in 2012, compared to the prior year. The increase in revenues was partially due to the Company’s fourth quarter 2012 lease and ownership acquisition of 138 communities that we previously managed for a joint venture comprised of Emeritus, affiliates of Blackstone Real Estate Partners VI (“Blackstone”), certain former tenants in common, and an investment fund affiliated with Dan Baty, the Company’s chairman (the “Blackstone JV”). The increase in revenues was also attributable to the Company’s fourth quarter 2012 acquisition of Nurse on Call, Inc. (“NOC”) and 2011 mid-year acquisitions that were included in consolidated results for a full year in 2012. Revenues for those consolidated communities we have continuously operated from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2012 (“Consolidated Same Community”) increased $19.5 million between the periods, driven primarily by rate growth. As of December 31, 2012, the consolidated Emeritus portfolio consisted of 461 communities, of which 293 communities are included in the Company’s definition of Consolidated Same Community.
Total average monthly revenue per occupied unit for the consolidated portfolio increased 1.6% to $4,127 in 2012 compared to 2011. Over the same period, total average occupancy for the consolidated portfolio increased 50 basis points to 86.8%. These increases in rate and occupancy were due primarily to improvements in the Consolidated Same Community portfolio, which represented over 80% of the average consolidated communities during the year. As a result of the Blackstone JV transaction, we added 129 leased communities and nine owned communities to our consolidated portfolio beginning in the fourth quarter of 2012, and four remaining Blackstone JV communities are expected to be added in 2013 as leased communities. All but five of these communities have been managed by Emeritus since the second half of 2010. For all communities continuously under Emeritus management from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2012 (“Total Portfolio Same Community”), monthly revenue per occupied unit increased 1.5% from 2011 to 2012, and average occupancy improved by 100 basis points over the same period.
