Friday, October 30, 2015

TOLEDO, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Welltower Inc. (NYSE:HCN) today announced operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

“This has been a milestone quarter. We changed our name to Welltower to reflect the new realities and opportunities in health care, and our strong financial performance gave us the confidence to increase our guidance and next year’s dividend,” said Tom DeRosa, CEO of Welltower. “This quarter’s operating results underscore our continued momentum as we invest with leading seniors housing and post-acute operators and health systems to fund the real estate infrastructure needed to grow their platforms. We will invest over $4 billion for the year in high-quality assets, primarily in major metro markets. We have a strong balance sheet, low leverage and a robust pipeline of opportunities focused on innovative care models. We believe we have a tremendous opportunity to transform health care infrastructure and drive value for our shareholders.”

As previously announced on September 30, 2015, Health Care REIT, Inc. changed its name to Welltower Inc. Welltower is a brand that emphasizes wellness and positions the company as an essential partner in the transformation of health care infrastructure. Welltower’s common and preferred stock continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “HCN.”

Earnings Results For the quarter, we generated record-high normalized FFO and FAD per share of $1.12 and $0.99, respectively, representing 8% and 9% increases from the third quarter of 2014. Third quarter results were positively impacted by year-to-date average total same store cash NOI growth of 3.1%, high-quality gross investments of $3.3 billion and a reduction in net debt to undepreciated book capitalization ratio to 37%.

Dividend Growth The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 of $0.825 per share, as compared to $0.795 per share for the same period in 2014, which represents a 3.8% increase. On November 20, 2015, we will pay our 178th consecutive quarterly cash dividend. The Board of Directors also approved a new 2016 quarterly cash dividend rate of $0.86 per share ($3.44 per share annually), which represents a 4.2% increase, commencing with the February 2016 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, 2015, we had $292 million of cash and cash equivalents and $2.0 billion of available borrowing capacity under our primary unsecured credit facility. During the third quarter, we issued approximately 1.2 million shares of common stock at an average price of $66.43 per share to generate approximately $77.7 million in proceeds under our dividend reinvestment program. In October 2015, we issued approximately 0.7 million shares of common stock at an average price of $69.23 per share to generate approximately $47.5 million in proceeds under our equity shelf program. Also in October 2015, we completed a public offering of $500 million in a re-opening of our 4.0% senior unsecured notes due June 1, 2025. The notes were priced at 97.75% of their face amount to yield 4.287%.

Outlook for 2015 We are updating our 2015 earnings guidance to increase normalized FFO and now expect to report in a range of $4.32 to $4.37 per diluted share from the previous range of $4.25 to $4.35 per diluted share, representing a 5%-6% increase. We are also narrowing our normalized FAD guidance to a range of $3.84 to $3.89 per diluted share from the previous range of $3.83 to $3.93 per diluted share, also representing a 5%-6% increase. Our guidance is based on the following updated assumptions:

  • Same Store Cash NOI: We continue to expect blended SSCNOI growth of approximately 3.0%-3.5%.
  • Acquisitions: 2015 earnings guidance includes only those acquisitions which have been completed or announced, comprised of acquisitions completed in the first nine months of the year, the Revera and Genesis investments discussed below, and investments associated with the Mainstreet partnership.
  • Development: We anticipate funding additional development of $73 million in 2015 relating to projects underway on September 30, 2015. We expect development conversions of approximately $19 million in the remainder of 2015. These investments are currently expected to generate yields of approximately 9%.
  • Dispositions: We now expect 2015 dispositions of approximately $1.1 billion of pro rata proceeds at an average yield on proceeds of 6% as compared to the prior expectation of $1 billion of proceeds at 7%.
  • Cap-ex, Tenant Improvements, Lease Commissions: We are increasing our estimate of cap-ex, tenant improvements and lease commissions to approximately $60 million from $50 million primarily as a result of the timing of certain seniors housing operating portfolio cap-ex projects.

Net income attributable to common stockholders guidance has been narrowed to a range of $2.52 to $2.57 per diluted share from the previous range of $2.47 to $2.57 per diluted share primarily due to third quarter normalizing items and gains. Our guidance does not include any additional 2015 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 2015 outlook and assumptions on the third quarter 2015 conference call.

Investment Activity We completed $474 million of pro rata gross investments for the quarter including $361 million in acquisitions/JVs, $69 million in development funding and $44 million in loans. Approximately 62% of these investments were completed with existing relationships. The $361 million acquisitions/JVs have a blended yield of 6.8% and were comprised of nine different transactions. The $69 million in development funding is expected to yield 8.3% upon completion and the $44 million of loans were made at a blended rate of 8.8%. In addition to the new investment activity during the quarter, we placed into service one development property project totaling $13 million at a yield of 7.2%. The investments are consistent with our strategy of investing in modern, high quality properties in major metropolitan markets with favorable supply/demand.

Fourth Quarter Investments

Revera As previously announced, we completed our acquisition of Regal Lifestyle Communities Inc. (TSX:RLC) through our existing 75/25 joint venture with Revera for CAD$12.00 per share in cash, or a total purchase price of approximately CAD$764 million. We funded our CAD$573 million interest through a combination of CAD$309 million of cash and CAD$264 million of pro rata assumed debt. The initial cash yield is anticipated to be 6.1%. Regal was a publicly traded Canadian corporation that owned and operated 23 high quality, private pay seniors housing properties with over 3,600 units. Approximately 83% of the portfolio’s net operating income is derived from Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Vancouver. The acquisition adds to our sizable existing footprint in these desirable metro markets. Revera is the second largest seniors housing operator in Canada, and is one of our Top 10 operating partners.

Genesis Healthcare As previously announced, Genesis has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire a portfolio of 24 long-term/post-acute properties in the U.S. from Revera. We expect to fund up to $50 million for the acquisition/leaseback of four properties and a short-term loan for approximately $145 million to help fund the acquisition. The four leased properties were selected based on geographic overlap with our existing portfolio with Genesis and their high quality mix. The initial yield on the leased properties will be 8.0% with 3.0% annual escalators. The bridge loan will be secured by a first mortgage against the other 20 properties. The term of the loan will be two years and the initial rate will be 7.25% escalating by 50 basis points after 150 days and then by 100 basis points every 90 days thereafter. We earned a 1.0% commitment fee for committing to fund the bridge loan and will earn a 1.5% funding fee at closing. The loan will be cross-defaulted with the HCN/Genesis master lease and will include a corporate guarantee. Genesis expects to pay off the loan in tranches with proceeds from new HUD loans or other traditional mortgage financing over the course of 2016. The transaction is expected to close prior to year-end.

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) and funds available for distribution (FAD) to be useful supplemental measures of our operating performance. 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. 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, 2015, which is available on the company’s website (www.welltower.com), for information and reconciliations of additional supplemental reporting measures.
