05/02/17
Conference Call Scheduled for Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at 1:00 pm ET

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., May 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CareTrust REIT, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTRE) reported today operating results for the first quarter of 2017, as well as other recent events.

For the quarter, CareTrust REIT:

  • Posted net income of $0.15, normalized FFO of $0.29 and normalized FAD of $0.30, all per diluted weighted-average common share;
  • Sold 7.2 million shares under its at-the-market equity offering program, raising $109.8 million of gross proceeds which were used to fund acquisitions and reduce revolver borrowings to $27 million as of quarter-end;
  • Invested approximately $55.3 million (inclusive of transaction costs) at a blended initial cash yield of 9.2%, including five skilled nursing facilities and two assisted living and memory care facilities;
  • Further diversified its tenant base by expanding its net-lease relationship with Premier Senior Living and initiating a new net-lease tenant relationship with affiliates of WLC Management Firm; and
  • Reduced its run-rate debt-to-EBITDA ratio to 3.65x and its debt-to-enterprise value to 24%, each as of quarter-end.

Approximately $55.3 Million in New Investments

Discussing CareTrust REIT’s progress, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Greg Stapley remarked, “Our 2017 has started off well, with two great acquisitions, robust demand under our ATM program, and lower-than-ever debt levels that position us extremely well for the rest of the year.” Mr. Stapley also noted that the company posted record quarterly FFO per share, increased its quarterly dividend by 8.8% to $0.185 per common share, and has recently seen the outlook on its credit ratings upgraded by both Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s from “stable” to “positive.” He concluded, “Our team remains committed to our disciplined investment approach, and with these recent accomplishments, we are more optimistic than ever about CareTrust REIT’s ability to create long-term shareholder value.”

Financial Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2017

Chief Financial Officer Bill Wagner reported that for the quarter, CareTrust REIT generated net income of $10.3 million, or $0.15 per diluted weighted-average common share, normalized FFO of $19.3 million, or $0.29 per diluted weighted-average common share, and normalized FAD of $20.4 million, or $0.30 per diluted weighted-average common share.

Capital Events and Liquidity

Discussing CareTrust REIT’s current liquidity, Mr. Wagner reported significant activity in the company’s at-the-market equity program. During the quarter, CareTrust REIT issued approximately 7.2 million shares of common stock through the program at an average price of $15.31 per share, for $109.8 million in gross proceeds. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the recent demand for our equity, which all but completely exhausted the current authorization under our at-the-market equity program in the quarter,” said Mr. Wagner.

Mr. Wagner further reported a quarter-end outstanding balance of approximately $27.0 million under CareTrust REIT’s $400 million unsecured revolving credit facility. He added that CareTrust REIT’s run-rate debt-to-EBITDA ratio was approximately 3.65x, and its debt-to-enterprise value was 24%, each at quarter-end. He also noted that CareTrust REIT continues to have no property-level debt and, taking into account existing extension rights, no debt maturing before 2020.

2017 Net Income and FFO Guidance Confirmed and FAD Guidance Revised

Notwithstanding the significant equity issuances in the quarter, Mr. Wagner confirmed CareTrust REIT’s previously-issued 2017 earnings guidance for net income and FFO per share. On a per-diluted weighted-average common share basis, CareTrust REIT expects net income of approximately $0.60 to $0.62, normalized FFO of approximately $1.11 to $1.13, and normalized FAD of approximately $1.17 to $1.19. This 2017 guidance assumes no new acquisitions beyond those announced, no new debt incurrences or additional equity issuances, and no future CPI-based rent escalators under CareTrust REIT’s long-term net-leases.

Increased Dividend

During the quarter, CareTrust increased its quarterly dividend by 8.8% to $0.185 per common share. “On an annualized basis, our quarterly dividend represents a payout ratio of approximately 66% based on the midpoint of our 2017 normalized FFO guidance,” said Mr. Wagner. “At this level, our dividend remains among the best-protected of all our industry peers, while giving us ample additional growth capital to reinvest and providing a solid overall return to our shareholders,” he added.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA represents net income before interest expense (including amortization of deferred financing costs), amortization of stock-based compensation, and depreciation and amortization. Normalized EBITDA represents EBITDA as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that the Company does not consider indicative of core operating performance, such as impairments, expensed acquisition costs, and gains or losses on the sale of real estate. EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA do not represent cash flows from operations or net income as defined by GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to those measures in evaluating the Company’s liquidity or operating performance. EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA do not purport to be indicative of cash available to fund future cash requirements, including the Company’s ability to fund capital expenditures or make payments on its indebtedness. Further, the Company’s computation of EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA reported by other REITs.

Funds from Operations (“FFO”), as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), and Funds Available for Distribution (“FAD”) are important non-GAAP supplemental measures of operating performance for a REIT. Because the historical cost accounting convention used for real estate assets requires straight-line depreciation except on land, such accounting presentation implies that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. However, since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market and other conditions, presentations of operating results for a REIT that uses historical cost accounting for depreciation could be less informative. Thus, NAREIT created FFO as a supplemental measure of operating performance for REITs that excludes historical cost depreciation and amortization, among other items, from net income, as defined by GAAP.

FFO is defined by NAREIT as net income computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains or losses from real estate dispositions, real estate depreciation and amortization and impairment charges, and adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company computes FFO in accordance with NAREIT’s definition.

FAD is defined as FFO excluding non-cash income and expenses, such as amortization of stock-based compensation, amortization of deferred financing costs and the effects of straight-line rent. The Company considers FAD to be a useful supplemental measure to evaluate the Company’s operating results excluding these income and expense items to help investors, analysts and other interested parties compare the operating performance of the Company between periods or as compared to other companies on a more consistent basis.

In addition, the Company reports normalized FFO and normalized FAD, which adjust FFO and FAD for certain revenue and expense items that the Company does not believe are indicative of its ongoing operating results, such as written-off deferred financing fees, expensed acquisition costs, and other unanticipated charges. By excluding these items, investors, analysts and our management can compare normalized FFO and normalized FAD between periods more consistently.

While FFO, normalized FFO, FAD and normalized FAD are relevant and widely-used measures of operating performance among REITs, they do not represent cash flows from operations or net income as defined by GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to those measures in evaluating the Company’s liquidity or operating performance. FFO, normalized FFO, FAD and normalized FAD do not purport to be indicative of cash available to fund future cash requirements.  

Further, the Company’s computation of FFO, normalized FFO, FAD and normalized FAD may not be comparable to FFO, normalized FFO, FAD and normalized FAD reported by other REITs that do not define FFO in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition or define FAD differently than the Company does.

The Company believes that net income, as defined by GAAP, is the most appropriate earnings measure. The Company also believes that the use of EBITDA, Normalized EBITDA, FFO, normalized FFO, FAD and normalized FAD, combined with the required GAAP presentations, improves the understanding of operating results of REITs among investors and makes comparisons of operating results among such companies more meaningful. The Company considers EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA useful in understanding the Company’s operating results independent of its capital structure and indebtedness, thereby allowing for a more meaningful comparison of operating performance between periods and against other REITs. The Company considers FFO, normalized FFO, FAD and normalized FAD to be useful measures for reviewing comparative operating and financial performance because, by excluding gains or losses from real estate dispositions, impairment charges and real estate depreciation and amortization, and, for FAD and normalized FAD, by excluding non-cash income and expenses such as amortization of stock-based compensation, amortization of deferred financing costs, and the effects of straight-line rent, FFO, normalized FFO, FAD and normalized FAD can help investors compare the Company’s operating performance between periods and to other REITs.
