Toledo, Ohio, Oct. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Welltower Inc. (NYSE: WELL) today announced results for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. For the quarter, we generated net income attributable to common stockholders of $0.17 per share and normalized FFO attributable to common stockholders of $1.04 per share.

Quarterly Highlights

  • Increased normalized 2018 FFO guidance to $4.02 to $4.07 per diluted share from $3.99 to $4.06 per diluted share
  • Successfully completed over $2.1 billion of health system and outpatient medical gross investments, and announced a further $480 million of agreements to acquire high quality outpatient medical buildings
  • Successfully closed $1.3 billion senior unsecured notes offering across three tranches with a weighted average maturity of 15.4 years and blended yield to maturity of 4.4%
  • Delivered $96 million of pro rata development projects with an expected stabilized yield of 8.5%
  • Named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for the first time and the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index for the third consecutive year

“Welltower’s diversified portfolio of Class A health care properties continued to deliver strong relative performance for yet another quarter, while the QCP acquisition demonstrated our forward-thinking vision to transform health care delivery,” commented CEO Tom DeRosa. “Since our announcement of QCP, we have entered into nearly half a billion in acquisition and development agreements with health system partners such as Johns Hopkins and Providence St. Joseph Health, exemplifying our ability to create investment opportunities with leading health systems that deliver long-term shareholder returns.”

Capital Activity In July, 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 million of USD term loan capacity at a borrowing rate of 90.0 basis points over LIBOR and $250 million CAD term loan capacity at 90.0 basis points over CDOR.

On September 30, 2018, we had $191 million of cash and cash equivalents and $1.7 billion of available borrowing capacity under the new primary unsecured credit facility. During the third quarter, we generated approximately $232 million under our dividend reinvestment program and equity shelf program at an average price of $66.07 per share. In August 2018, we completed the issuance of $1.3 billion in aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes across three tranches with a weighted average maturity of 15.4 years and a blended yield to maturity of 4.4%, including $600 million in 3.95% notes due 2023, $200 million in 4.25% notes due 2028 and $500 million in 4.95% notes due 2048. Proceeds from these issuances were used to repay advances under the $1 billion term loan facility drawn on in July 2018and our primary unsecured credit facility.

Dividend The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 of $0.87 per share. On November 21, 2018, we will pay our 190th consecutive quarterly cash dividend to stockholders of record on November 12, 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 January 15, 2019 to stockholders of record on December 31, 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 $2.6 billion of pro rata gross investments for the quarter including $2.2 billion in acquisitions, $312 million in acquisition of non-yielding properties in conjunction with the QCP acquisition and $63 million in development funding.  Acquisitions were comprised of two separate transactions at a blended yield of 7.9%. The development fundings are expected to yield 7.3% upon stabilization. We also placed three development projects into service totaling $96 million at a blended stabilized yield of 8.5%. Also during the quarter, we completed dispositions of $316 million consisting of the sale of $147 million of non-yielding properties acquired in the QCP acquisition, other property sales of $109 million at a blended yield on proceeds of 13.4% and loan payoffs of $60 million at an average yield of 9.3%.

Notable Investments with Existing Operating Partners

Regents of The University of California We acquired a 100% interest in two off-campus, affiliated outpatient medical buildings in the Thousand Oaks MSA for $30 million, which represents a year one cap rate of 5.5%. The properties combined are 50,533 rentable square feet and are 100% leased. The Regents of the University of California leases 46% of the combined rentable square feet and Providence St. Joseph Health leases 7%. Regents of the University of California, a public university system with ten campuses, already leases over 50,000 square feet of space in our properties. Providence of St. Joseph Health, a national not-for-profit health system with over 51 hospitals and more than 800 clinics in seven states, already leases over 230,000 square feet in our properties.

Brandywine As previously announced, 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, we will experience initial rent dilution due to a number of development assets in lease-up, while participating in the future benefit of lease-up as the primary owner of the OpCo and PropCo and a 34.9% owner of the management and development company.  We believe the structure aligns Welltower’s and Brandywine’s interests in benefiting from strong future growth from this great portfolio.  Since our initial investment in 19 buildings in 2010, the Brandywine portfolio has grown through acquisitions, developments, expansions and redevelopments, and represents a total of $1.0 billion of pro rata investment.

Notable Investments with New Operating Partners

Acquisition of Quality Care Properties, Inc. (“QCP”) and ProMedica Joint Venture 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 $2.5 billion of real estate associated with 218 properties leased to ProMedica under a new 15 year absolute triple-net master lease.  Separate from the partnership, we acquired 87 additional properties for an aggregate investment of $512 million, including 59 non-yielding held-for-sale properties and 13 non-core held-for-sale properties.  During the third quarter, we completed the disposition of 19 of the non-yielding properties and 12 of the non-core properties for aggregate proceeds of $225 million, resulting in a $21 million gain on the sale.

Notable Development Conversions

Signature Senior Lifestyle We expanded our relationship with Signature by completing the development of a 95 unit assisted living and memory care property in the town of Bushey within the Greater London MSA. Expected stabilized yield is 10% on Welltower’s pro rata £29 million investment.  Since our initial acquisition in 2012, we have completed a total of $732 million of follow-on pro rata investments and financings with Signature.

Notable Dispositions

Genesis We completed the disposition of three long-term/post-acute properties for $36 million which represents an 8.8% cap rate on in-place rent.  We realized a gain on the sale of $4 million.

Notable Expected Investments

Medical Pavilion at Howard County General Hospital We have entered into an agreement in principle to acquire an outpatient medical building located on the campus of Johns Hopkins Howard Country General Hospital in Columbia, Maryland for $80 million, which represents a year one cap rate of 4.9%. The 160,000 square foot property is 100% leased and sits adjacent to a 56,000 square foot Welltower owned property on the same campus. With this acquisition, Johns Hopkins will be the principal tenant in four Welltower properties totaling 371,000 square feet, inclusive of the Knoll North Campus a 30 acre complex we acquired in 2015. This transaction is anticipated to close in the fourth quarter.

Medical Office Portfolio We have entered into an agreement to acquire a 100% interest in a 23 property, Class-A medical office portfolio for approximately $400 million. The portfolio has an average age of 10 years and totals 979,000 rentable square feet across 12 major metropolitan markets. The properties are 94% occupied with 96% of the portfolio affiliated with health systems. This transaction is anticipated to close in the fourth quarter.

Outlook for 2018 Net income attributable to common stockholders has been changed to a range of $2.39 to $2.44 per diluted share from the previous range of $2.66 to $2.73 per diluted share, primarily due to changes in projected net gains/losses/impairments and depreciation and amortization offset by the normalizing items in Exhibit 2.  We are increasing our 2018 normalized FFO attributable to common stockholders guidance to $4.02 to $4.07 per diluted share from $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.
  • Development: We anticipate funding development of approximately $72 million in 2018 relating to projects underway on September 30, 2018.
  • Dispositions: We are reducing anticipated disposition proceeds from $2.4 billion to $2.2 billion at a blended yield of 6.0% in 2018. This includes approximately $1.4 billion of proceeds from dispositions completed to-date at a blended yield of 6.9%.

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 third quarter 2018 conference call.

Conference Call Information We have scheduled a conference call on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss our third 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 November 13, 2018. To access the rebroadcast, dial 855-859-2056 or 404-537-3406 (international).  The conference ID number is 7578449. 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), net operating income (NOI) and same store NOI (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 exceeds 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 September 30, 2018, which is available on the company’s website (www.welltower.com), for information and reconciliations of additional supplemental reporting measures.
