Five Star Senior Living Inc. (Nasdaq: FVE) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.

Financial Results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017:
  • Senior living revenue for the first quarter of 2017 increased 0.1% to $280.5 million from $280.1 million for the same period in 2016. The increase in senior living revenue is a result of an increase in average monthly rates to residents who pay privately for services and an increase in the number of leased communities, partially offset by a decrease in occupancy. In addition, revenues from ancillary services, such as rehabilitation and wellness services, contributed approximately $1.0 million of additional senior living revenue compared to the same period in 2016. Management fee revenue for the first quarter of 2017 increased 27.1% to $3.6 million from $2.8 million for the same period in 2016. Growth in management fees was primarily due to an increase in the number of managed communities compared to the same period in 2016 and the previously disclosed modifications to Five Star's management and pooling arrangements with Senior Housing Properties Trust, or SNH, that became effective on July 1, 2016.
  • Net loss for the first quarter of 2017 was $6.8 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $2.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the same period in 2016.
  • Earnings from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or EBITDA, for the first quarter of 2017 was $3.6 million compared to $8.8 million for the same period in 2016. EBITDA, excluding certain items noted in the supplemental information provided below, or Adjusted EBITDA, was $3.8 million and $9.1 million for the first quarters of 2017 and 2016, respectively. A reconciliation of loss from continuing operations determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarters of 2017 and 2016 appears later in this press release.

Operating Results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 (continuing operations):
  • Occupancy at owned and leased senior living communities for the first quarter of 2017 was 83.6% compared to 85.1% for the same period in 2016.
  • The average monthly rate at owned and leased senior living communities for the first quarter of 2017 increased 2.2% to $4,756 from $4,654 for the same period in 2016.
  • The percentage of revenue derived from residents' private resources at owned and leased senior living communities for the first quarter of 2017 was 77.6% compared to 78.1% for the same period in 2016.

Financing Activities:

In February 2017, Five Star entered into a new $100 million secured revolving credit facility with terms substantially similar to those of its previously existing secured revolving credit facility. The credit facility matures in February 2020 and Five Star has options to extend the stated maturity date for two, one year periods. Five Star pays interest on borrowings under the credit facility at an annual rate of LIBOR plus a premium of 250 basis points. The credit facility is secured by real estate mortgages on 10 senior living communities with a combined 1,219 living units.

FIVE STAR SENIOR LIVING INC.RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (in thousands) (unaudited)

Non-GAAP financial measures are financial measures that are not determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. Five Star considers these Non-GAAP financial measures to be meaningful supplemental disclosures because it believes that the presentation of these Non-GAAP financial measures may help investors to gain a better understanding of changes in Five Star's operating results and its ability to pay rent or service debt, make capital expenditures and expand its business. These Non-GAAP financial measures also may help investors who wish to make comparisons between Five Star and other companies on both a GAAP and a non-GAAP basis.

The Non-GAAP financial measures presented are used by management to evaluate Five Star's financial performance and for comparing Five Star's performance over time and to the performance of its competitors. This supplemental information should not be considered as an alternative to income (loss) from continuing operations or net income (loss), as an indicator of Five Star's operating performance or as a measure of Five Star's liquidity. Non-GAAP financial measures as presented by Five Star may not be comparable to amounts calculated by other companies

Five Star believes that income (loss) from continuing operations is the most directly comparable financial measure determined according to GAAP to Five Star's presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. The following table presents the reconciliation of these Non-GAAP financial measures to loss from continuing operations for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016.
