Toledo, Ohio, July 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Welltower Inc. (NYSE: WELL) today announced results for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. For the quarter, we generated net income attributable to common stockholders of $0.41 per share, FFO attributable to common stockholders of $1.02 per share and normalized FFO attributable to common stockholders of $1.00 per share.

Quarterly Highlights

  • Closed the acquisition of QCP and transition of HCR ManorCare operations to ProMedica Health System on July 26, 2018
  • Announced value-enhancing restructuring of the Brookdale relationship expected to significantly reduce Brookdale concentration and increase lease coverage
  • Increased normalized FFO guidance to $3.99 to $4.06 from $3.95 to $4.05 per diluted share
  • Delivered $89 million of pro rata development projects with an expected stabilized yield of 7.0%
  • Subsequent to quarter end converted Brandywine Living from a triple-net to a RIDEA operating partner

“Welltower’s seniors housing portfolio continues to deliver results in-line with expectations despite a challenging, industry-wide operating environment,” commented CEO Tom DeRosa.  “The restructuring of our Brookdale relationship and conversion of Brandywine into a RIDEA structure represents our best-in-class relationship investing model.  With these restructurings and the closing of our joint venture with ProMedica Health System, the Welltower platform is now even better positioned to grow and drive long-term shareholder value.”

Capital Activity On June 30, 2018, we had $215 million of cash and cash equivalents and $2.5 billion of available borrowing capacity under our primary unsecured credit facility. In April 2018, we completed the issuance of 4.25% $550 million senior unsecured notes maturing in April 2028 which we used to repay advances under our primary unsecured credit facility.

Unsecured Credit Facility Post quarter, we closed on a new $3.7 billion unsecured credit facility with improved pricing across both our line of credit and term loan facility and terminated the existing unsecured credit facility.  The credit facility includes $3.0 billion of revolving credit capacity at a borrowing rate of 82.5 basis points over LIBOR, $500 millionof USD term loan capacity at a borrowing rate of 90.0 basis points over LIBOR and $250 million of CAD term loan capacity at 90.0 basis points over CIDOR.

Dividend The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 of $0.87 per share. On August 21, 2018, we will pay our 189th consecutive quarterly cash dividend to stockholders of record on August 7, 2018. The Board of Directors also declared a quarterly cash dividend on the Series I Cumulative Convertible Perpetual Preferred Stock of $0.8125 per share, payable October 15, 2018 to stockholders of record on September 30, 2018.  The declaration and payment of future quarterly dividends remains subject to review and approval by the Board of Directors.

Quarterly Investment and Disposition Activity We completed $251 million of pro rata gross investments for the quarter including $172 million in acquisitions/JVs, $75 million in development funding and $5 million in loans.  100% of these investments were completed with existing relationships. Acquisitions/JVs were comprised of two separate transactions at a blended yield of 6.7%. The development fundings are expected to yield 7.8% upon stabilization and the loans were made at a blended rate of 7.9%. We also placed four development projects into service totaling $89 million at a blended stabilized yield of 7.0%. Also during the quarter, we completed dispositions of $67 million consisting of loan payoffs of $12 million at an average yield of 10.0% and property sales of $55 million at a blended yield on proceeds of 10.8%.

Notable Investments with Existing Operating Partners
Sunrise Senior Living As previously announced, we expanded our relationship with Sunrise by acquiring a portfolio of four rental continuing care retirement communities located in the Washington D.C. (2), Miami, and Charlottesville MSAs.  Welltower acquired 100% of the landlord’s ownership interest for $368 million and has transitioned the communities to a RIDEA structure with Sunrise continuing to manage the communities under an incentive-based management contract.  The year one cap rate is 7.0%.  We completed the acquisition of one community in December 2017 for $55 million and two communities in March 2018 for $217 million.  We completed the acquisition of the remaining community during the second quarter of 2018 at a price of $96 million.  Since our initial acquisition in 2012, we have completed a total of $5.9 billion of pro rata investments with Sunrise.

Kisco Senior Living We expanded our relationship with Kisco through the acquisition of a 176 unit combination senior housing community located in Cary, NC.  The community was acquired through the formation of a 90/10 joint venture with Kisco and the purchase price based on a 100% ownership interest was $84 million.  The year one cap rate is 6.3%.  Since our initial acquisition in 2012, we have completed a total of $235 million of pro rata investments with Kisco.

Notable Development Conversions
Community Health Systems We completed a 38,578 square foot development of an outpatient medical building in Palmer, Alaska that is 67% leased at opening.  The investment amount was $11 million and the stabilized yield on the development is 8.4%.

Notable Dispositions

Hollinger We completed the disposition of one triple-net CCRC property for $18 million, which represents an 8.6% cap rate on EBITDAR.  We realized a gain on the sale of $10 million gain and unlevered IRR of 12.8%.

Symphony We completed the disposition of two long-term/post-acute facilities for $37 million or $160,870 per bed, which represents a gain on the sale of $0.7 million.

Post Quarter Investment Activity
Acquisition of Quality Care Properties As previously announced, on July 26, 2018 we completed the acquisition of QCP, with QCP shareholders receiving $20.75 in cash for each share of QCP common stock.  Prior to the acquisition, ProMedica Health System (“ProMedica”) completed the acquisition of the operations of HCR ManorCare.  Immediately following the acquisition, we formed an 80/20 strategic partnership between Welltower and ProMedica to own the real estate associated with 218 properties leased to ProMedica under a 15 year absolute NNN master lease.  Separate from the partnership, as previously disclosed, we acquired 61 non-yielding QCP held-for-sale properties which we anticipate will generate approximately $400 million in proceeds.  We also expect to generate an additional $107 million in disposition proceeds through the sale of non-core former QCP assets.

Brandywine Living In July 2018, we converted 27 triple-net Brandywine Living properties to a seniors housing operating structure (RIDEA), in which Brandywine will manage the communities under an incentive-based management contract.  Brandywine operates a high-quality portfolio of newly built communities with an average age of 13 years, primarily in Northeast MSAs, that represent some of the highest demographic scores in our portfolio.  Due to the conversion (subject to different state regulatory approvals), we will experience initial rent dilution due to the number of development assets in lease-up, while participating in the future benefit of lease-up as a primary owner of the OpCo and PropCo and a 34.9% owner of the management and development company.  We believe this structure aligns our interest, as well as Brandywine’s, to benefit from strong growth from this great real estate in the long term.  Since our initial investment in 19 buildings in 2010, the Brandywine portfolio has grown to 29 properties through acquisitions, developments expansions and redevelopments and represents a total of $1.0 billion of pro rata investment.

Brookdale Restructuring As previously announced, we entered into a value-enhancing restructuring of the Brookdale relationship which is expected to significantly reduce our Brookdale concentration while also providing pro forma lease coverage of 1.31x on EBITDAR and 1.51x on EBITDARM basis.

Outlook for 2018 Net income attributable to common stockholders has been revised upward to a range of $2.66 to $2.73 per diluted share from the previous range of $2.55 to $2.65 per diluted share, primarily due to changes in projected net gains/losses/impairments and depreciation and amortization partially offset by the normalizing items in Exhibit 2.  We are raising our 2018 normalized FFO attributable to common stockholders guidance to $3.99 to $4.06 per diluted share.  In preparing our guidance, we have updated or confirmed the following assumptions:

  • Same Store NOI: We continue to expect average blended SSNOI growth of approximately 1.0%-2.0% in 2018.
  • Acquisitions: 2018 earnings guidance includes any acquisitions closed or announced year to date, inclusive of the acquisition of QCP.
  • Development: We anticipate funding development of approximately $162 million in 2018 relating to projects underway on June 30, 2018. We expect development conversions during the remainder of 2018 of approximately $130 million, which are currently expected to generate stabilized yields of approximately 8.0%.
  • Dispositions: We are increasing anticipated disposition proceeds of $1.9 billion to $2.4 billion at a blended yield of 6.0% in 2018. This includes approximately $1.1 billion of proceeds from dispositions completed to-date, $0.8 billionof previously disclosed property dispositions and payoffs and $0.5 billion of incremental asset sales associated with the QCP transaction described above.

Our guidance does not include any additional investments, dispositions or capital transactions beyond what we have announced, nor any other expenses, 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 attributable to common stockholders.  We will provide additional detail regarding our 2018 outlook and assumptions on the second quarter 2018 conference call.

Conference Call Information We have scheduled a conference call on Friday, July 27, 2018 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss our second quarter 2018 results, industry trends, portfolio performance and outlook for 2018. Telephone access will be available by dialing 888-346-2469 or 706-758-4923 (international).  For those unable to listen to the call live, a taped rebroadcast will be available beginning two hours after completion of the call through August 10, 2018. To access the rebroadcast, dial 855-859-2056 or 404-537-3406 (international).  The conference ID number is 8875759. To participate in the webcast, log on to www.welltower.com 15 minutes before the call to download the necessary software. Replays will be available for 90 days.

Supplemental Reporting Measures We believe that net income and net income attributable to common stockholders (NICS), as defined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP), are the most appropriate earnings measurements. However, we consider funds from operations (FFO), NOI and SSNOI 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 attributable to common stockholders, 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 attributable to common stockholders represents FFO attributable to common stockholders adjusted for certain items detailed in Exhibit 2.  We believe that normalized FFO attributable to common stockholders is a useful supplemental measure of operating performance because investors and equity analysts may use this measure 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.

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 paid to operators, 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.  SSNOI is used to evaluate the 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 (including major refurbishments where 20% or more of units are simultaneously taken out of commission for 30 days or more), sold or classified as held for sale during that period are excluded from the same store amounts.  Properties undergoing operator transitions and/or segment transitions (except triple-net to seniors housing operating with the same operator) are also 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 the company’s 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.  We believe NOI and SSNOI provide investors relevant and useful information because they measure the operating performance of our properties at the property level on an unleveraged basis. We use NOI and SSNOI to make decisions about resource allocations and to assess the property level performance of our properties.  No reconciliation of the forecasted range for SSNOI on a combined or segment basis 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.

Our supplemental reporting measures and similarly entitled financial measures are widely used by investors, equity and debt analysts and ratings agencies in the valuation, comparison, rating 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 June 30, 2018, which is available on the company’s website (www.welltower.com), for information and reconciliations of additional supplemental reporting measures.
