2013 Annual Consolidated Results

Community, ancillary services and management fee revenue increased $541.7 million, or 39.0%, to $1.9 billion in 2013, compared to $1.4 billion in the prior year. The increase in revenue was primarily due to the Company’s lease and ownership acquisition of 142 communities in the fourth quarter of 2012 and the first quarter of 2013 that the Company previously managed for a joint venture (the "Blackstone JV"). The increase was also attributable to the Company’s fourth quarter 2012 acquisition of Nurse on Call, Inc. (“NOC”), the largest Medicare-licensed provider of home healthcare services in Florida, as well as increased same community rates in the senior housing portfolios. Total average monthly revenue per occupied unit for the consolidated portfolio was $4,000 for 2013 compared to $4,127 for 2012; the rate decrease was due primarily to the acquisition of the Blackstone JV communities, which have lower average rates than the legacy Emeritus communities. Consolidated rates were also impacted by the September 2013 acquisition of the Merrill Gardens communities, which have a higher proportion of independent living units that generally have lower rates than assisted living units. Average occupancy for the consolidated portfolio grew 30 basis points to 87.1% in 2013 from 86.8% in 2012.
