COVID-19 Update

Our share of property-level expenses associated with the COVID-19 pandemic relating to our total SHO portfolio, net of reimbursements including Provider Relief Funds and similar programs in the U.K. and Canada, totaled an expense of approximately $6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, as compared to a benefit of approximately $23 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Such amounts had an unfavorable impact on net income attributable to common stockholders and normalized FFO per diluted share of $0.01 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, and a favorable impact of $0.05 per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Capital Activity and Liquidity Inclusive of available borrowings under our line of credit, cash and cash equivalents, and restricted cash, as of March 31, 2022, we had $4.1 billion of near-term available liquidity and no material senior unsecured note maturities until 2024. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we settled 6.6 million shares of common stock that were sold under our ATM program via forward sale agreements, resulting in $558.8 million of gross proceeds. On March 31, 2022, we completed the Company’s second green bond issuance consisting of $550 million senior unsecured notes bearing interest at 3.85% with a maturity date of June 2032. During the quarter, we extinguished $101 million of secured debt at a blended average interest rate of 4.21%.

Effective April 1, 2022, we completed a legal entity merger in anticipation of an UPREIT reorganization that resulted in the formation of a new holding company, which is now known as Welltower Inc., and the entity formerly known as Welltower Inc. now known as Welltower OP Inc. (“Old Welltower”). Financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 and all other periods prior to the merger relate to Old Welltower. Detailed information on the merger and the UPREIT reorganization can be found in the Form 8-K filed on March 7, 2022 and the Form 8-K12B filed on April 1, 2022.

Investment and Disposition Activity In the first quarter, we completed $1.0 billion of pro rata gross investments including $787 million in acquisitions and loan funding, as well as $233 million in development funding. We converted four development projects for an aggregate pro rata investment amount of $228 million. Additionally, during the quarter we completed pro rata property dispositions and loan payoffs of $155 million. Year-to-date, we completed $1.2 billion of pro rata gross investments exclusive of development funding.

Notable Investment Activity Completed During the Quarter

Cogir Management Corporation During the quarter, we expanded our relationship with Cogir through the acquisition of a portfolio of eight class-A private pay seniors housing communities in highly attractive markets for a pro rata purchase price of $389 million. Further, we entered into a forward purchase agreement to acquire an additional community currently under development. The transaction is expected to generate an unlevered IRR in the high single-digit range.

Outpatient Medical Acquisition We acquired a portfolio of four medical office buildings totaling 510,000 rentable square feet in Birmingham, Alabama for $148 million, representing a discount to replacement cost and an initial yield of 5.5%. The properties are heavily integrated with the local health system, housing critical functions and specialties including a portion of the emergency department. The portfolio is 100% occupied through a single tenant absolute net lease with 15 years of remaining term. The transaction is expected to generate an unlevered IRR in the high single-digit range.

Related Companies and Atria Senior Living In 2019, we began a long-term strategic partnership with Related Companies and Atria Senior Living to develop, own and operate modern urban communities catering to seniors living in major metropolitan areas. During the quarter, we delivered Coterie Cathedral Hill at 1001 Van Ness in San Francisco, an upscale 208-unit senior living facility in a premier location. The Coterie Cathedral Hill represents the partnership’s first senior living facility, and we expect to complete Coterie Hudson Yards, the second location, during the fourth quarter.

Additionally during the quarter, we expanded our partnership with Related and Atria through an agreement to develop the third and fourth locations for the partnership’s series of modern urban senior living communities in California. The Cupertino development, which will grant seniors unrivaled access to the best of Cupertino’s amenities with convenient connectivity to Silicon Valley, commenced development during the quarter. The Santa Clara, located at the apex of Silicon Valley and the growing East Bay, will break ground in mid-2022.

Unitranche Loan During the quarter, we closed on a loan for a pro rata investment amount of $18 million, representing the first investment in a previously announced joint venture unitranche debt facility with KeyBank. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, we closed on two additional loans as part of the joint venture for a total pro rata investment of $22 million, as well as one deal outside of the joint venture structure for a pro rata investment amount of $10 million.

Genesis Dispositions We continued to execute on our planned exit of the Genesis relationship; during the quarter, we closed on the sale of seven properties for a gross purchase price of $76 million, and in April we closed on the sale of two properties for proceeds of $17 million. With the completion of these transactions, Welltower has substantially exited its relationship with Genesis: one property remains in the lease between Welltower and Genesis and seven properties that were formerly under a sub-lease from Welltower to Genesis are now leased to a new regional operator. As previously disclosed, we have entered into a forward sale agreement for these seven properties valued at $182 million, which is expected to close simultaneously with the exercise of Welltower’s bargain purchase option.

Other Transactions Additionally during the first quarter, we acquired two seniors housing communities for pro rata investment of $65 million, which includes one new operator.

Investment Activity Subsequent to Quarter End

StoryPoint Senior Living As previously announced, we entered into an agreement to expand our relationship with StoryPoint Senior Living, a preeminent senior living operator based in Brighton, Michigan, through the acquisition of 33 communities throughout MichiganOhio and Tennessee under an aligned RIDEA 3.0 contract. During April, we closed on the first tranche through the acquisition of two recently opened communities located in Ohio and Tennessee for a pro rata purchase price of $65 million.

Cogir Management Corporation Subsequent to quarter end, we closed on an additional three property portfolio in Washington state for a pro rata purchase price of $244 million in a 90/10 joint venture, with Cogir also assuming management of the properties. The acquisition is expected to generate an unlevered IRR in the high single-digit range. Following the year-to-date acquisition activity, our relationship with Cogir encompasses 34 communities across the U.S. and Canada, having grown from six communities beginning in 2018.

Treplus Communities Subsequent to quarter end, we expanded our relationship with Treplus Communities through the acquisition of a portfolio of three class-A wellness housing communities in the Midwest. The communities feature unique environments with individual cottage style units, clubhouses, 24/7 concierge services, and offer residents a wellness-oriented social lifestyle.

Dividend On May 10, 2022, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 of $0.61 per share. This dividend, which will be paid on May 31, 2022 to stockholders of record on May 24, 2022, will be our 204th consecutive quarterly cash dividend. The declaration and payment of future quarterly dividends remains subject to review and approval by the Board of Directors.

Outlook for Second Quarter 2022 The degree to which the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our operations and those of our operators and tenants, including the variability in the timing of recovery, is dependent on a variety of factors and remains highly uncertain. Accordingly, we are only introducing earnings guidance for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 and expect to report net income attributable to common stockholders in a range of $0.20 to $0.25 per diluted share and normalized FFO attributable to common stockholders in a range of $0.82 to $0.87 per diluted share. In preparing our guidance, we have made the following assumptions:

  • Same Store NOI: We expect average blended SSNOI growth of 8.0% to 10.0%, which is comprised of the following components:
    • Seniors Housing Operating approximately 15.0% to 20.0%
    • Seniors Housing Triple-net approximately 7.0% to 8.0%
    • Outpatient Medical approximately 2.0% to 3.0%
    • Health System approximately 2.75%
    • Long-Term/Post-Acute Care approximately 2.0% to 3.0%
  • Provider Relief Funds: Our second quarter guidance includes approximately $6 million of Provider Relief Funds, which are expected to be received during the quarter.
  • General and Administrative Expenses: We anticipate second quarter general and administrative expenses to be approximately $35 million to $37 million and stock-based compensation expense to be approximately $6 million.
  • Investments: Our earnings guidance includes only those acquisitions closed or announced to date. Furthermore, no transitions or restructures beyond those announced to date are included.
  • Development: We anticipate funding approximately $673 million of development in 2022 relating to projects underway on March 31, 2022.
  • Dispositions: In addition to dispositions and loan payoffs completed in the first quarter, we expect pro rata disposition proceeds and loan payoffs of $352 million at a blended yield of 6.8% in the next twelve months. This includes approximately $265 million of expected proceeds from properties classified as held-for-sale as of March 31, 2022 and $87 million of expected proceeds from loan repayments.

Our guidance does not include any additional investments, dispositions or capital transactions beyond those we have announced, nor any other expenses, impairments, unanticipated additions to the loan loss reserve or other additional normalizing items. Please see the Supplemental Reporting Measures section for further discussion and our definition of normalized FFO and SSNOI and Exhibit 3 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 second quarter outlook and assumptions on the first quarter 2022 conference call.

Telephone access will be available by dialing (844) 467-7115 or (409) 983-9837 (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 May 25, 2022. To access the rebroadcast, dial (855) 859-2056 or (404) 537-3406 (international). The conference ID number is 2275720.

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”), normalized FFO, NOI, SSNOI, REVPOR and SS REVPOR 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 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 using a consistent population which controls for 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. Acquisitions and development conversions are included in the same store amounts five full quarters after acquisition or being placed into service. Land parcels, loans and sub-leases, as well as any properties sold or classified as held for sale during the period, are excluded from the same store amounts. Redeveloped properties (including major refurbishments of a Seniors Housing Operating property where 20% or more of units are simultaneously taken out of commission for 30 days or more or Outpatient Medical properties undergoing a change in intended use) are excluded from the same store amounts until five full quarters post completion of the redevelopment. Properties undergoing operator transitions and/or segment transitions are also excluded from the same store amounts until five full quarters post completion of the operator transition or segment transition. In addition, properties significantly impacted by force majeure, acts of God or other extraordinary adverse events are excluded from same store amounts until five full quarters after the properties are placed back into service. SSNOI excludes non-cash NOI and includes adjustments to present consistent property ownership percentages and to translate Canadian properties and UK properties using a consistent exchange rate. 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 our 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 basis or by property type 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.

REVPOR represents the average revenues generated per occupied room per month at our Seniors Housing Operating properties. It is calculated as our pro rata version of total resident fees and services revenues from the income statement divided by average monthly occupied room days. SS REVPOR is used to evaluate the REVPOR performance of our properties under a consistent population which eliminates changes in the composition of our portfolio. It is based on the same pool of properties used for SSNOI and includes any revenue normalizations used for SSNOI. We use REVPOR and SS REVPOR to evaluate the revenue-generating capacity and profit potential of our Seniors Housing Operating portfolio independent of fluctuating occupancy rates. They are also used in comparison against industry and competitor statistics, if known, to evaluate the quality of our Seniors Housing Operating portfolio.

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 March 31, 2022, which is available on the Company’s website (www.welltower.com), for information and reconciliations of additional supplemental reporting measures.
