Ventas Reports Eight Percent Increase In Third Quarter 2013 Normalized FFO To A Record $1.04 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 quarter ended September 30, 2013 increased eight percent to $307.2 million, from $284.9 million for the comparable 2012 period. Normalized FFO per diluted common share was a record $1.04 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, an eight percent increase from $0.96 for the comparable 2012 period. Weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the quarter decreased by one percent to 295.2 million from 297.4 million in the third quarter of 2012.

“Ventas delivered another quarter of record results by accretively investing capital, raising capital and managing our diverse, high-quality portfolio of seniors housing and healthcare assets,” Ventas Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Debra A. Cafaro said. “We also positioned Ventas to succeed in the future by maintaining strong liquidity through a highly successful bond issuance, by acquiring over a billion dollars in higher growth private pay assets, and by completing favorable lease extensions with our valued tenant Kindred Healthcare,” she added. “We are pleased to increase our full-year outlook, reflecting the strength of our business model and execution.”

The growth in third quarter 2013 normalized FFO per diluted common share compared to the third quarter of 2012 is due primarily to the Company’s 2012 and 2013 investments; net operating income increases in its high-quality private pay seniors housing communities managed by Atria Senior Living, Inc. (“Atria”) and Sunrise Senior Living, LLC (“Sunrise”), its triple-net lease portfolio and its medical office building (“MOB”) segment; lower weighted average interest rates; and a decrease in weighted average diluted shares outstanding. These benefits were partially offset by higher debt balances, asset sales and receipt of loan repayments.

Normalized FFO for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 excludes the net expense (totaling $3.5 million, or $0.01 per diluted share) from merger-related expenses and deal costs (including integration costs) and amortization of other intangibles, partially offset by an income tax benefit and net gains on extinguishment of debt. Normalized FFO for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 excluded the net benefit (totaling $4.8 million, or $0.01 per diluted share) from an income tax benefit and net gains on extinguishment of debt, partially offset by merger-related expenses and deal costs (including integration costs) and amortization of other intangibles.
