FIRST QUARTER 2021 & RECENT BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS

  • Delivered first quarter 2021 occupancy, cash NOI and AFFO per share results that were in line with the Company’s guidance for the quarter
  • Vaccine distribution within the Company’s portfolio is now largely complete as 100% of communities have had access to the vaccine
  • As vaccine distribution has progressed, COVID-19 cases have fallen to near-zero levels with 1 active resident case as of May 3 and only 4 new resident cases reported in April
  • Sequential occupancy trends improved significantly throughout the first quarter of 2021 – January ending occupancy was down 80bps, February ending occupancy was down 60bps and March ending occupancy was down 20bps
  • April ending occupancy grew by 40bps versus March, marking the first month of occupancy growth since the pandemic began
  • Successfully completed the previously announced transition of 21 properties to Atria Senior Living (“Atria”) on April 1
  • Declared dividend of $0.065 per common share
  • Issued second quarter 2021 guidance based on latest trends and results

Susan Givens, President & Chief Executive Officer of the Company commented, “More than a year after the pandemic began, we are cautiously optimistic that current trends are signaling the start of a potential recovery. We are encouraged to see COVID-19 cases within our portfolio falling significantly as the vaccine has been widely distributed at our communities. Monthly occupancy trends have improved for three consecutive months, and in April our portfolio had the first month of occupancy growth since the start of the pandemic. After such a challenging year, particularly for the population that our industry serves, we believe that the senior housing industry is well positioned to benefit from a strong recovery.”

FIRST QUARTER 2021 GAAP RESULTS

New Senior recorded a GAAP net loss of $7.6 million, or $(0.09) per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2021, compared to a GAAP net income of $5.2 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2020. The year-over-year decrease was primarily driven by the gain on sale of real estate of $20.0 million realized in the first quarter of 2020 as a result of the disposition of the 28 AL/MC properties.

DIVIDEND

Effective May 3, 2021, our board of directors declared a cash dividend on our common stock of $0.065 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. The dividend is payable on June 18, 2021 to stockholders of record on June 4, 2021.

FIRST QUARTER 2021 OVERVIEW

As of March 31, 2021, we owned a portfolio of 102 Independent Living (“IL”) properties and one Continuing Care Retirement Community (“CCRC”). Approximately 10,000 residents live in our 103 properties, which were managed by three different operators and one tenant during the quarter.

COVID-19 Update

  • Property status
    • As the rate of new COVID-19 cases has declined and the vaccine rollout has progressed, our operators have focused on safely lifting restrictions, restoring community services, and increasing resident engagement and activity
    • A majority of our properties are operating in a manner largely consistent with the pre-COVID-19 environment, including expanded dining services (up to 75% capacity), full activities programs, and full transportation services
  • Known cases
    • As of May 3, our operators reported 3 active cases across 3 properties (1 resident, 2 associates)
    • Only 12 new cases were reported in April, down 95% from the peak of 260 in December; only 4 of the 12 new cases were residents
  • Vaccine status
    • As of May 3, 100% of the properties in our portfolio have had access to the vaccine and 91% have completed all planned vaccine clinics
    • Vaccine participation has continued to trend near 80% for residents and 50% for associates

1) Information through March 2021 represents 1Q21 same store portfolio of 102 assets; information for April 2021 represents 2Q21 same store portfolio, which excludes 21 properties transitioned to Atria on 4/1/21. April 2021 ending occupancy for the 1Q21 same store portfolio increased 10bps sequentially.
  • Occupancy trends for the first quarter of 2021:
    • Ending occupancy fell by 160bps versus prior quarter
      • Monthly occupancy trend improved significantly throughout the quarter, consistent with declining COVID-19 cases and progress on the vaccine rollout
    • Both leads and move-ins surpassed average 2019 volume in March for the first time since the pandemic began
    • Move-outs trended higher during the quarter as increased COVID-19 cases in January and February led to elevated non-controllable move-outs (death and higher level of care)
  • Occupancy trends for the second quarter of 2021:
    • April ending occupancy increased by 40bps sequentially, marking the first positive month since the onset of the pandemic
      • Increase driven by continued improvement in move-in volume and a significant decline in move-outs
    • Currently expect ending occupancy in the second quarter of 2021 to increase by 120bps to 150bps sequentially, a significant improvement versus the quarterly declines experienced since the start of the pandemic

Expenses & Margin

  • In the first quarter of 2021, operating expenses decreased 3.2% versus prior year
    • The year-over-year decline was driven by reduced spend on occupancy-related and other controllable expenses such as supplies and maintenance
    • Notably, the February winter storms impacting much of the United States drove an increase in utilities and insurance expenses, partially offsetting some of the year-over-year decline in other expense line items
    • Operating expenses specifically associated with COVID-19 were approximately $0.3 million (less than 1% of total expenses for the quarter); these expenses were down 46% versus prior year and down 45% versus prior quarter
  • In the first quarter of 2021, NOI margin was 36.1%, down modestly from 39.1% in the fourth quarter of 2020
    • The margin compression was driven by the occupancy declines that have been sustained since the start of the pandemic, as well as the February winter storms
    • In the near-term margins are expected to be slightly below historical levels as operators focus on driving occupancy growth. Over time, margins are expected to recover to historical levels as occupancy growth continues

NOI & AFFO

  • In the first quarter of 2021, total same store cash NOI decreased by 16.0% versus the prior year
    • Revenue losses driven by occupancy declines from the COVID-19 pandemic continue to be partially offset by lower expenses
  • AFFO for the first quarter of 2021 was $11.5 million or $0.14 per diluted share
  • First quarter 2021 total same store cash NOI and AFFO per diluted share were in line with previously provided first quarter guidance

SECOND QUARTER 2021 GUIDANCE

Due to the ongoing uncertainty caused by the pandemic, New Senior will not be providing full year 2021 guidance at this time. However, based on the Company’s financial results to date, as well as the observations and trends discussed above in “First Quarter 2021 Overview,” New Senior is providing second quarter 2021 guidance for occupancy, total same store cash NOI and AFFO per diluted share as follows:

Second Quarter 2021 Guidance
Total Same Store Properties 82 Properties (81 IL & 1 NNN)
IL Same Store Ending Occupancy: Sequential Change Up 120bps to 150bps
Total Same Store Cash NOI: YoY Change Down approx. 15%
AFFO Per Diluted Share Approx. $0.13

The estimates above are based on a number of assumptions that are subject to change and many of which are outside of the Company’s control. If actual results vary from these assumptions, the Company’s expectations may change. There can be no assurance that the Company will achieve these results. A reconciliation of the Company’s expectations to its projected GAAP measures is included in this press release.

(A) Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is calculated by dividing net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding. The outstanding shares used to calculate the weighted average basic shares exclude 266,139 and 493,599 restricted stock awards, net of forfeitures, for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively, as those shares were issued but were not vested and therefore, not considered outstanding for purposes of computing basic EPS. Diluted EPS is computed by dividing net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding plus the additional dilutive effect, if any, of common stock equivalents during each period.

(B) Dilutive share equivalents and options were excluded for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 as their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive given our loss position.

ROUNDING

Throughout this Press Release, totals and subtotals of certain tables may not sum due to rounding.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The tables above set forth reconciliations of non-U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) measures to net income (loss), which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

A non-GAAP financial measure is a measure of historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes or includes amounts that are not excluded from or included in the most directly comparable GAAP measure. We consider certain non-GAAP financial measures to be useful supplemental measures of our operating performance for management and investors. GAAP accounting for real estate assets assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time, even though real estate values historically have risen or fallen with market conditions. As a result, many industry investors look to non-GAAP financial measures for supplemental information about real estate companies.

You should not consider non-GAAP measures as alternatives to GAAP net (loss) income, which is an indicator of our financial performance, or as alternatives to GAAP cash flow from operating activities, which is a liquidity measure. Additionally, non-GAAP measures are not intended to be a measure of our ability to satisfy our debt and other cash requirements. In order to facilitate a clear understanding of our consolidated historical operating results, you should examine our non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP net (loss) income as presented in our Consolidated Financial Statements and other financial data included elsewhere in this press release. Moreover, the comparability of non-GAAP financial measures across companies may be limited as a result of differences in the manner in which real estate companies calculate such measures.

Below is a description of the non-GAAP financial measures presented herein.

NOI, Cash NOI and Cash Interest Expense

Net operating income (“NOI”) and Cash NOI are non-GAAP financial measures used to evaluate the performance of our properties. We consider NOI and Cash NOI important supplemental measures used to evaluate the operating performance of our properties because they allow investors, analysts and our management to assess our unleveraged property-level operating results and to compare our operating results between periods and to the operating results of other real estate companies on a consistent basis. We define NOI as total revenues less property level operating expenses, which include property management fees and travel cost reimbursements. We define Cash NOI as NOI excluding the effects of straight-line rental revenue, amortization of above/ below market lease intangibles and the amortization of deferred community fees and other, which includes the net change in deferred community fees and other rent discounts or incentives.

Same store NOI and same store cash NOI include only properties owned for the entirety of comparable periods. Properties acquired, sold, transitioned to other operators or between segments, or classified as held for sale or discontinued operations during the comparable periods are excluded from the same store amounts. Please see the Company’s most recent quarterly report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for more information.

Cash interest expense is defined as interest expense excluding the amortization of deferred financing costs and includes the interest expense on debt repaid upon the sale of the AL/MC portfolio (classified as discontinued operations).

FFO and Other Non-GAAP Measures

We use Funds From Operations (“FFO”) and Normalized FFO as supplemental measures of our operating performance. We use the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) definition of FFO. NAREIT defines FFO as GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, which includes loss from discontinued operations, excluding gains (losses) from sales of depreciable real estate assets and impairment charges of depreciable real estate, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated entities and joint ventures to reflect FFO on the same basis. FFO does not account for debt principal payments and is not intended as a measure of a REIT’s ability to satisfy such payments or any other cash requirements.

Normalized FFO, as defined below, measures the financial performance of our portfolio of assets excluding items that, although incidental to, are not reflective of the day-to-day operating performance of our portfolio of assets. We believe that Normalized FFO is useful because it facilitates the evaluation of our portfolio’s operating performance (i) between periods on a consistent basis and (ii) to the operating performance of other real estate companies. However, comparability may be limited because our calculation of Normalized FFO may differ significantly from that of other companies or because of features of our business that are not present in other companies.

We define Normalized FFO as FFO excluding the following income and expense items, as applicable: (a) acquisition, transaction and integration related expenses; (b) the write off of unamortized discounts, premiums, deferred financing costs, or additional costs, make whole payments and penalties or premiums incurred as the result of early repayment of debt (collectively “Gain (Loss) on extinguishment of debt”); (c) incentive compensation to affiliate recognized as a result of sales of real estate; (d) the remeasurement of deferred tax assets; (e) valuation allowance on deferred tax assets, net; (f) termination fee to affiliate; (g) gain on lease termination; (h) compensation expense related to transition awards; (i) litigation proceeds; and (j) other items that we believe are not indicative of operating performance, generally reported as “Other expense (income)” in our Consolidated Statements of Operations.

We also use Adjusted FFO (“AFFO”) and Normalized FAD as supplemental measures of our operating performance. We believe AFFO is useful because it facilitates the evaluation of (i) the current economic return on our portfolio of assets between periods on a consistent basis and (ii) our portfolio versus those of other real estate companies that report AFFO. However, comparability may be limited because our calculation of AFFO may differ significantly from that of other companies, or because of features of our business that are not present in other companies.

We define AFFO as Normalized FFO excluding the impact of the following: (a) straight-line rental revenue; (b) amortization of above / below market lease intangibles; (c) amortization of deferred financing costs; (d) amortization of premium or discount on mortgage notes payable; (e) amortization of deferred community fees and other, which includes the net change in deferred community fees and other rent discounts or incentives, and (f) amortization of equity-based compensation expense.

We define Normalized FAD as AFFO less routine capital expenditures, which we view as a cost associated with the current economic return. Normalized FAD, which does not reflect debt principal payments and certain other expenses, does not represent cash available for distribution to shareholders. We believe Normalized FAD is useful because it fully reflects the additional economic costs of maintaining the condition of the portfolio.
