Welltower Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

Welltower Inc. (NYSE:HCN) today announced results for the quarter ended September 30, 2016. For the quarter, we generated net income attributable to common stockholders of $0.93 per share, normalized FFO of $1.16 per share and normalized FAD of $1.04 per share. Third quarter results were positively impacted by strong trailing-four-quarter average total same store NOI growth, net investments of $2.6 billion and average net debt to undepreciated book capitalization ratio of 39%.

Quarterly Highlights
  • Normalized FFO and FAD per share increased by 4% and 5% versus 3Q15, respectively
  • Total portfolio SSNOI grew 2.6% versus 3Q15
  • Same store seniors housing operating occupancy increased 70 basis points to 90.6% with REVPOR growth of 4.0% versus 3Q15
  • Completed $1.4 billion of third quarter gross investments, including the previously announced $1.15 billion premier west coast seniors housing portfolio

Full Year Highlights
  • Increasing SSNOI guidance to 3.0%-3.25% from 2.75%-3.25%
  • Increasing dispositions guidance to $4.1 billion from $1.3 billion for 2016, which now includes $2.2 billion of long-term/post-acute care properties. This strategic portfolio repositioning is expected to drive the following benefits:
    • Significant increase in private pay revenue mix to 92.4% from 89.4%
    • Reduce long-term/post-acute care concentration to 13.5% from 19.9%
    • Improve long-term/post-acute care payment coverage after management fees to 1.45x from 1.34x
    • Further deleverage the balance sheet with undepreciated book capitalization moving to 34.4% from 39.5% and strengthening credit metrics

"Once again, our strong quarterly results reflect Welltower's strategy of owning high quality, modern health care real estate in high barrier to entry markets, our unique relationship model with the leading senior care providers and health systems, and maintaining a low leverage position," said Tom DeRosa, CEO of Welltower. "As will be announced today, we have taken a major step toward enhancing our ability to drive long term shareholder value by redeploying capital to high quality, private pay senior care and outpatient medical real estate and further improving our balance sheet to REIT industry leading levels. This will solidify Welltower's position as the premier owner of quality health care real estate."

Dividend Growth As previously announced, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 of $0.86 per share, as compared to $0.825 per share for the same period in 2015, which represents a 4.2% increase. On November 21, 2016, we will pay our 182 nd consecutive quarterly cash dividend. The Board of Directors also approved a new 2017 quarterly cash dividend rate of $0.87 per share ($3.48 per share annually), which represents a 1.2% increase, commencing with the February 2017 dividend payment. The declaration and payment of quarterly dividends remains subject to review by and approval of the Board of Directors.

Capital Activity On September 30, 2016, we had $429 million of cash and cash equivalents and $1.7 billion of available borrowing capacity under our primary unsecured credit facility. During the third quarter, we generated approximately $358 million in proceeds under our ATM and DRIP programs.

Outlook for 2016 Net income attributable to common stockholders has been revised to a range of $3.74 to $3.80 per diluted share from the previous range of $2.74 to $2.84 per diluted share primarily due to the normalizing items described in Exhibit 1, estimated gains on projected dispositions, and estimated debt extinguishments and other costs related to projected uses of disposition proceeds. We are also revising our 2016 normalized FFO and FAD guidance. We expect to report normalized FFO in a range of $4.50 to $4.56 per diluted share compared to the previous range of $4.50 to $4.60 per diluted share, now representing a 3%-4% increase from 2015. The midpoint decrease is primarily due to an increase in projected dispositions. We expect to report normalized FAD in a range of $3.99 to $4.05 per diluted share compared to the previous range of $3.95 to $4.05 per diluted share, now representing a 4%-5% increase from 2015. The midpoint increase is primarily due to a decrease in projected capital expenditures offset by an increase in projected dispositions. Additionally, in preparing our guidance, we have updated the following assumptions:
  • Same Store NOI: We are increasing 2016 SSNOI guidance and now expect growth of approximately 3.0%-3.25% from the previous range of 2.75%-3.25%.
  • Acquisitions: 2016 earnings guidance now includes acquisitions that have been completed during the first nine months of 2016 and approximately $314 million of additional acquisitions/loans at a yield of 7.2% expected to close during the fourth quarter.
  • Development: We anticipate funding additional development of $156 million in 2016 relating to projects underway on September 30, 2016. This excludes the midtown Manhattan project previously disclosed. We expect development conversions of approximately $179 million during the fourth quarter of 2016. These investments are currently expected to generate yields of approximately 7.6%.
  • Dispositions: We are increasing our dispositions guidance and now anticipate approximately $4.1 billion of disposition proceeds in 2016. This includes $0.8 billion of proceeds completed through September 30, 2016 and $3.3 billion of anticipated proceeds at a yield of 8.0% from other potential loan payoffs and property sales expected in the fourth quarter of 2016. Please refer to our "Welltower Announces Significant Portfolio Repositioning" press release to be issued November 2, 2016 for additional information.

Our guidance does not include any additional investments, dispositions or capital transactions beyond what we have announced, nor any transaction costs, impairments, unanticipated additions to the loan loss reserve or other additional normalizing items. Please see the exhibits for a reconciliation of the outlook for net income available to common stockholders to normalized FFO and FAD. We will provide additional detail regarding our 2016 outlook and assumptions on the third quarter 2016 conference call.

Investment and Disposition Activity We completed $1.4 billion of pro rata gross investments for the quarter including $1.2 billion in acquisitions/JVs, $110 million in development funding and $119 million in loans. 100% of these investments were completed with existing relationships. Acquisitions/JVs were comprised of four separate transactions at a blended yield of 6.1%. The development fundings are expected to yield 7.7% upon completion and the loans were made at a blended rate of 12.4%. We also placed into service four development projects totaling $56 million at a blended yield of 7.7%. The investments are consistent with our strategy of investing in modern, high quality properties in major metropolitan markets with favorable supply/demand characteristics. Also during the quarter, we completed total dispositions of $489 million consisting of loan payoffs of $60 million at an average yield of 10.8% and property sales of $429 million at a blended yield on proceeds of 8.7%.

Notable Investments with Existing Operating Partners

Senior Resource Group (SRG)/Sunrise Senior Living/Silverado Senior Living As previously disclosed, we expanded our relationships with SRG, Sunrise and Silverado by acquiring a 19-community seniors housing portfolio with a total of 2,590 units concentrated in premier infill locations in Southern and Northern California. The purchase price of $1.15 billion represents a stabilized cap rate in the mid-to-high 6's. Management was transitioned to: SRG (11 properties), Sunrise (seven properties) and Silverado (one property). Including this acquisition, we have completed $5.3 billion of investments with Sunrise, $1.3 billion of investments with SRG, and $0.4 billion of investments with Silverado.

Legend Senior Living We expanded our relationship with Legend by acquiring two 94-unit, purpose built, private pay seniors housing properties located in Jacksonville, FL. The properties were acquired through our existing 88/12 joint venture with Legend and the purchase price based on a 100% ownership interest was $52 million. These properties were added to an existing long-term master lease at an initial lease yield of 7.25% and which escalates 3% annually. Legend developed the properties with junior loan financing and we exercised contractual purchase options. Legend will continue to operate the properties. Since closing our initial $12 million acquisition in 2006, we have completed $346 million of follow-on pro rata investments with Legend.

Notable Development Conversions

Kelsey-Seybold We completed a 24,302 square foot development of an outpatient medical building that is 100% master leased by Kelsey-Seybold for 15 years and located in Missouri City, TX. Kelsey-Seybold is a leading multi-specialty physician practice with more than 380 physicians and was one of the country's first accountable care organizations. The investment amount is $9 million and the initial yield on the development is 7.6%. Kelsey-Seybold leases over 1 million square feet of space in Welltower properties.

Avery Healthcare We expanded our relationship with Avery by adding two newly developed properties to the existing master lease. The properties have 149 total units, were purchased for £28 million and are in the London and Birmingham U.K. markets. Welltower provided senior/junior financing for the projects and exercised contractual purchase options. The master lease has a corporate guarantee and expires in 2033. The blended initial lease yield is 7.8% and escalates by 3.0% annually. Since closing our first $204 million acquisition/leaseback in 2013, we have completed $585 million of follow-on pro rata investments with Avery.

Notable Dispositions

Outpatient Medical Portfolio We completed the disposition of seven outpatient medical buildings totaling 366,000 square feet for $80 million, which represents a 7.9% cap rate on in-place NOI. We realized a slight loss on the sale of these non-core assets.

Signature HealthCARE We completed the disposition of 31 long-term/post-acute care facilities operated by Signature for $300 million, which represents a 9.4% cap rate on in-place rent. In addition to the property sales, Signature also repaid our $37 million corporate loan. The sale of the 31 properties represents a $140 million gain and a 13% unlevered IRR. Signature will continue to operate the facilities for the new owner.

Supplemental Reporting Measures We believe that net income attributable to common stockholders (NICS), as defined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP), is the most appropriate earnings measurement. However, we consider funds from operations (FFO), funds available for distribution (FAD), same store net operating income (SSNOI), in-place net operating income (IPNOI) and same store revenues per occupied room (SS REVPOR) to be useful supplemental measures of our operating performance. These supplemental measures are disclosed on our pro rata ownership basis. Pro rata amounts are derived by reducing consolidated amounts for minority partners' noncontrolling ownership interests and adding our minority ownership share of unconsolidated amounts. We do not control unconsolidated investments. While we consider pro rata disclosures useful, they may not accurately depict the legal and economic implications of our joint venture arrangements and should be used with caution.

Historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with U.S. GAAP implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time as evidenced by the provision for depreciation. However, since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors and analysts have considered presentations of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient. In response, the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) created FFO as a supplemental measure of operating performance for REITs that excludes historical cost depreciation from net income. FFO, as defined by NAREIT, means net income attributable to common stockholders, computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of real estate and impairments of depreciable assets, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated entities and noncontrolling interests. Normalized FFO represents FFO adjusted for certain items detailed in Exhibit 1. FAD represents FFO excluding net straight-line rental adjustments, amortization related to above/below market leases and amortization of non-cash interest expenses and less cash used to fund capital expenditures, tenant improvements and lease commissions. Normalized FAD represents FAD adjusted for certain items detailed in Exhibit 1. We believe that normalized FFO and normalized FAD are useful supplemental measures of operating performance because investors and equity analysts may use these measures to compare the operating performance of the company between periods or as compared to other REITs or other companies on a consistent basis without having to account for differences caused by unanticipated and/or incalculable items.

NOI is used to evaluate the operating performance of our properties. We define NOI as total revenues, including tenant reimbursements, less property operating expenses. Property operating expenses represent costs associated with managing, maintaining and servicing tenants for our seniors housing operating and outpatient medical properties. These expenses include, but are not limited to, property-related payroll and benefits, property management fees, marketing, housekeeping, food service, maintenance, utilities, property taxes and insurance. General and administrative expenses represent costs unrelated to property operations or transaction costs. These expenses include, but are not limited to, payroll and benefits, professional services, office expenses and depreciation of corporate fixed assets. In-Place NOI represents NOI excluding interest income, other income and non-cash NOI and adjusted for timing of current quarter portfolio changes such as acquisitions, development conversions, segment transitions, dispositions and investments held for sale.

SSNOI is used to evaluate the cash-based operating performance of our properties under a consistent population which eliminates changes in the composition of our portfolio. As used herein, same store is generally defined as those revenue-generating properties in the portfolio for the relevant year-over-year reporting periods. Land parcels, loans and sub-leases as well as any properties acquired, developed/redeveloped, transitioned, sold or classified as held for sale during that period are excluded from the same store amounts. Normalizers include adjustments that in management's opinion are appropriate in considering SSNOI, a supplemental, non-GAAP performance measure. None of these adjustments, which may increase or decrease SSNOI, are reflected in our financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Significant normalizers (defined as any that individually exceed 0.50% of SSNOI growth per property type) are separately disclosed and explained in the relevant supplement information package. We believe SSNOI provides investors relevant and useful information because it measures the operating performance of our properties at the property level on an unleveraged basis. No reconciliation of the forecasted range for SSNOI on a combined or segment basis for fiscal year 2016 is included in this release because we are unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the comparable GAAP financial measure without unreasonable efforts, and we believe such reconciliation would imply a degree of precision that could be confusing or misleading to investors.

REVPOR represents the average revenues generated per occupied room per month at our seniors housing operating properties. It is calculated as total resident fees and services revenues divided by average monthly occupied room days. SS REVPOR is used to evaluate the REVPOR performance of our properties under a consistent population which eliminates changes in the composition of our portfolio. It based on the same pool of properties used for SSNOI and includes any revenue normalizations used for SSNOI. We use REVPOR and SS REVPOR to evaluate the revenue-generating capacity and profit potential of our seniors housing operating portfolio independent of fluctuating occupancy rates. They are also used in comparison against industry and competitor statistics, if known, to evaluate the quality of our seniors housing operating portfolio.

Our supplemental reporting measures and similarly entitled financial measures are widely used by investors and equity analysts in the valuation, comparison and investment recommendations of companies. Our management uses these financial measures to facilitate internal and external comparisons to historical operating results and in making operating decisions. Additionally, they are utilized by the Board of Directors to evaluate management. The supplemental reporting measures do not represent net income or cash flow provided from operating activities as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternative measures of profitability or liquidity. Finally, the supplemental reporting measures, as defined by us, may not be comparable to similarly entitled items reported by other real estate investment trusts or other companies. Please see the exhibits for reconciliations of supplemental reporting measures and the supplemental information package for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, which is available on the company's website ( www.welltower.com), for information and reconciliations of additional supplemental reporting measures.
