Emeritus Announces Operating Results For Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012

Stocks in this article: ESC

Community operating expenses increased $72.5 million to $919.6 million in 2012 compared to $847.2 million in 2011, due primarily to acquisition-related activities (net of dispositions) between the periods. Community operating expenses in the Consolidated Same Community portfolio were held to an increase of 0.8%, or $6.4 million; normal inflationary and certain other expense increases were offset somewhat by lower utilities expenses and improved efficiencies in the Company’s healthcare self-insurance program.

Community operating income increased $63.9 million, or 16.5%, to $450.4 million in 2012, compared to the prior year. Community operating income margin increased 160 basis points to 32.9% in 2012, compared to 31.3% in the prior-year period, reflecting improved occupancy and rate, combined with effective expense controls, as well as decreased self-insurance reserve adjustments in 2012. Total Portfolio Same Community operating margin increased 100 basis points to 32.2% in 2012, compared to 31.2% in 2011; the larger percentage increase in this total portfolio was due to accelerated improved performance in the former Blackstone JV communities.

Excluding noncash stock-based compensation expenses, senior living general and administrative expenses as a percent of total operated senior living community revenue (which includes revenues of managed communities but excludes reimbursed costs of managed communities and ancillary services revenues) was held flat at 4.8% for 2012, consistent with the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDAR in 2012 increased $43.3 million, or 12.5%, to $389.8 million, with the increase primarily driven by the increase in community operating income. Cash from facility operations (CFFO) per share, as adjusted, increased 13.4% to $1.69 per share, compared to $1.49 per share in 2011.

2012 Fourth Quarter Consolidated Results

Community and management fee revenues increased $88.0 million, or 27.1%, to $412.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $324.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase in revenues resulted primarily from the Company’s fourth quarter 2012 lease and ownership acquisition of 138 communities that we previously managed for the Blackstone JV and the acquisition of NOC. Additionally, Consolidated Same Community revenues increased $9.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily as a result of improved rate per unit.
