2011 Annual Consolidated Results

Total operating revenues increased by $247.7 million, or 24.6%, to $1.255 billion for the year ended December 31, 2011, compared to $1.007 billion in 2010. The total revenue increase consisted primarily of $225.7 million from the acquisition of communities (net of dispositions), $12.0 million, or an increase of 1.3%, from the Company’s portfolio of 262 communities operated during both periods, and $9.2 million from an increase in management fees primarily from the addition of the Sunwest Joint Venture communities in August 2010.

Total average monthly revenue per occupied unit for the consolidated portfolio increased to $4,065 in 2011 from $3,817 in 2010, a 6.5% improvement. For the total consolidated portfolio, average occupancy in 2011 decreased 60 basis points to 86.3% compared to 86.9% in 2010. The increase in rate and decrease in occupancy were due, in large part, to acquired communities with higher rates and lower levels of occupancy than the Company’s same community portfolio.

Community operating expenses increased $185.0 million to $847.1 million in 2011 compared to $662.1 million in 2010. Approximately $157.6 million of the increase resulted from the acquisition of communities (net of dispositions), while $17.0 million, or an increase of 2.9%, was from the 262 same communities, and $10.4 million was from corporate expenses not allocated to communities, primarily related to changes in self-insurance reserves for claims attributable to prior years.

Community operating income (community revenues less community operating expenses) increased $53.5 million, or 16.1%, to $386.5 million in 2011 compared with $333.0 million in 2010.

General and administrative expenses increased $14.3 million to $88.8 million in 2011 compared to $74.5 million in 2010, with the increase resulting primarily from a labor and benefit expense increase of $11.2 million from additional staffing to support the increase in the Company’s operated portfolio during the latter part of 2010, as well as higher non-cash stock compensation expenses of $2.2 million. As a percent of total operated community revenues, which includes revenues of managed communities, general and administrative expenses, excluding stock compensation expenses, decreased to 4.8% in 2011 compared to 5.5% in 2010.

For the year ended December 31, 2011, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and rents (“Adjusted EBITDAR”) increased 21.3% to $346.4 million from $285.6 million for 2010, with the increase primarily driven by the $53.5 million improvement in community operating income. For the same period, CFFO, as adjusted, increased $10.4 million, or 19.4%, to $64.0 million from $53.6 million for 2010.

2011 Fourth Quarter Consolidated Results

Total revenue in the fourth quarter of 2011 increased 14.2% to $324.1 million. The $40.4 million revenue increase consisted primarily of $2.2 million in the Company’s same community portfolio of 262 communities operated during both periods and $38.7 million from the acquisition of communities (net of dispositions).

Total average monthly revenue per occupied unit for the consolidated portfolio increased 2.0% to $4,080 in the fourth quarter of 2011 from $3,999 in the fourth quarter of 2010. This increase in rate was partially due to 27 consolidated communities added in November 2010 that had higher average rates.

In the fourth quarter of 2011, total average occupancy for the consolidated portfolio was 86.6% compared to 86.2% in the fourth quarter of 2010, a 40 basis point improvement.

Community operating expenses increased $34.0 million to $219.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Approximately $26.8 million of the increase resulted from the acquisition of communities (net of dispositions), $5.4 million from same community operating expenses, and the remaining increase primarily from changes in professional liability and workers’ compensation self-insurance reserves.

Community operating income increased $6.5 million, or 6.9%, to $99.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 compared to $93.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Excluding non-cash stock-based compensation expenses, general and administrative expenses as a percent of total operated community revenue, which includes revenues of managed communities, decreased to 5.0% in the fourth quarter of 2011 from 5.2% in the prior year quarter. General and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2011 were held essentially flat from the prior year quarter.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2011, Adjusted EBITDAR increased $7.7 million, or 9.5%, to $88.5 million, with the increase primarily driven by the $6.5 million increase in community operating income.

2011 Fourth Quarter Same Community Results

As of December 31, 2011, the consolidated Emeritus portfolio consisted of 328 communities, of which 262 communities are included in the Company’s definition of same communities. Total same community revenue increased $2.2 million to $232.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, with $1.4 million coming from rate increases and the balance from occupancy improvements. Average monthly revenue per occupied unit increased 0.6% to $3,831 in the fourth quarter of 2011 from $3,807 in the corresponding period in 2010. Average occupancy increased 30 basis points to 88.0% in the fourth quarter of 2011 from 87.7% in the comparative period last year.

The Company’s same community operating expenses increased $5.4 million to $153.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Operating expenses reflected a $0.3 million, or 0.5%, increase in salary and wages as well as increases in health insurance, workers’ compensation insurance, professional liability insurance, and repairs and maintenance expenses, offset by reductions in certain other categories. On a per resident day basis, same community salaries and wages decreased by 0.1%.

Same community operating income decreased $3.3 million to $79.1 million with a 34.0% operating margin in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Fourth Quarter 2011 Transactions and Refinancings

Dispositions

In December 2011, the Company sold five communities and paid off the related mortgage debt totaling $19.6 million.

Debt Refinancings

In October 2011, the Company entered into a loan agreement with KeyBank in the amount of $112.0 million to refinance the existing mortgage debt on 16 communities. The loan agreement has a three-year term and interest accrues at a rate equal to the one-month LIBOR plus a margin, which ranges from 4.75% to 6.75%, depending upon the loan-to-value ratio of the communities each month. The Company is required to make monthly principal payments of $500,000, decreasing to $250,000 per month beginning December 1, 2012.

In December 2011, the Company entered into a loan agreement with Fannie Mae in the amount of $53.3 million to refinance seven of the 16 communities mentioned in the financing above. The Fannie Mae loan agreement has a ten-year term and interest accrues at a fixed rate of 4.93%. Monthly principal and interest payments are based on a 30-year amortization period, with the balance due in full on January 1, 2022.

In December 2011, the Company entered into a loan agreement with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the amount of $17.9 million to refinance debt on three communities. The HUD loan agreement has a 35-year term and interest accrues at a fixed rate of 3.70%. The balance is due in full on January 1, 2047.

2012 Guidance Update

The Company provides guidance in certain key categories. The guidance pertains to the Company’s existing portfolio and excludes future acquisitions.

The Company’s guidance for 2012 is as follows:
  • Consolidated revenue in the range of $1.3 billion to $1.325 billion.
  • Routine capital expenditures in the range of $24.0 million to $26.0 million.
  • General and administrative expenses as a percent of total operated revenue to be approximately 4.8%, excluding non-cash stock-based compensation expenses.
  • CFFO, as adjusted, in the range of $1.60 to $1.70 per share.

In addition to annual guidance, the Company expects CFFO, as adjusted, in the first quarter of 2012 to be in the range of $0.30 to $0.34 per share.

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 cash flows. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA/EBITDAR and CFFO and provides other information about these non-GAAP measures in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

The discussion of such matters and subject areas is qualified by the inherent risks and uncertainties surrounding future expectations generally, and also may materially differ from our actual future experience as a result of such factors as: the effects of competition and economic conditions on the occupancy levels in our communities; our ability under current market conditions to maintain and increase our resident charges in accordance with our rate enhancement programs without adversely affecting occupancy levels; increases in interest costs as a result of refinancings; our ability to control community operation expenses without adversely affecting the level of occupancy and the level of resident charges; our ability to generate cash flow sufficient to service our debt and other fixed payment requirements; our ability to find sources of financing and capital on satisfactory terms to meet our cash requirements to the extent that they are not met by operations, and uncertainties related to professional liability and workers’ compensation claims. We have attempted to identify, in context, certain of the factors that we currently believe may cause actual future experience and results to differ from our current expectations regarding the relevant matter or subject area. These and other risks and uncertainties are detailed in our reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including “Item 1A.
