11/05/18

Conference Call Scheduled for Tuesday, November 6, 2018 at 2:00 pm ET

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Nov. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CareTrust REIT, Inc. (Nasdaq:CTRE) today reported operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, as well as other recent events.

For the quarter, CareTrust REIT reported:

  • Net income of $14.5 million, an increase of 28% over the prior year quarter, and net income per diluted weighted-average common share of $0.18, up approximately 20% over the same period;
  • Normalized FFO of $25.8 million, an increase of 20%, and normalized FFO per diluted weighted-average common share of $0.32, an increase of 14% over Q3 2017;
  • Normalized FAD of $26.6 million, an increase of 20%, and normalized FAD per diluted weighted-average common share of $0.33, an increase of 14% over Q3 2017;
  • A net debt-to-normalized EBITDA ratio of 3.5x and a debt-to-enterprise value of 25%, each as of quarter-end.

Continuing Progress

Commenting on the company’s progress in the quarter, Greg Stapley, CareTrust REIT’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “In contrast to the first half of 2018, the third quarter brought a return to the steady deal flow to which we’re accustomed.” He reported that, in the quarter and since, the company acquired $41 million in new assets, added two new operators to its expanding tenant pool and match-funded its recent and anticipated near-term growth in part with $84 million in proceeds from its at-the-market equity program. “More importantly, we are staying close to our tenants, and are happy to report solid performance across their operations,” he added.

Mr. Stapley also discussed the company’s prospects looking forward. “Our leverage is at an all-time low, earnings are at an all-time high, and our pipeline is in the best shape we’ve seen in over a year,” he said. He added that CareTrust’s skilled nursing operators appear poised to benefit from the 2019 implementation of the new Patient-Driven Payment Model and other industry tailwinds. “With these changes underway, we and our operators are not only doing well this year, we are especially well-positioned for an outstanding 2019,” he concluded.

Financial Results for Quarter Ended September 30, 2018

Chief Financial Officer Bill Wagner reported that, for the third quarter, CareTrust REIT generated net income of $14.5 million, or $0.18 per diluted weighted-average common share, normalized FFO of $25.8 million, or $0.32 per diluted weighted-average common share, and normalized FAD of $26.6 million, or $0.33 per diluted weighted-average common share. “We are pleased to be delivering a quarter-over-quarter increase in normalized FFO per share of 14%,” said Mr. Wagner.

Liquidity

Discussing the company’s balance sheet, Mr. Wagner reported that CareTrust’s net debt-to-normalized EBITDA ratio was 3.5x and its debt-to-enterprise value was 25%, each at quarter-end, which is actually under management’s target leverage range. He said that the company used a combination of retained FFO and proceeds of equity sales under its at-the-market program to reduce the outstanding balance under CareTrust’s $400 million revolving credit line to approximately $95 million as of today. 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.

Mr. Wagner also reported that CareTrust issued approximately 4.8 million shares of common stock through the at-the-market program during the quarter at an average price of $17.62 per share, for $84 million in gross proceeds. “Our ATM program remains a significant instrument in the company’s capital-raising repertoire, as it significantly enhances our ability to match-fund the smaller acquisitions that have been our bread and butter,” he said. He added that the program has approximately $104 million in authorization remaining at present. He also noted that the revolving credit facility includes an additional $250 million “accordion” feature that can be exercised by the company if additional liquidity is needed.

2018 Guidance Updated

Mr. Wagner updated CareTrust REIT's 2018 earnings guidance, projecting on a per-diluted weighted-average common share basis, net income of approximately $0.72 to $0.73, normalized FFO of approximately $1.27 to $1.28, and normalized FAD of approximately $1.32 to $1.33. He noted that the 2018 guidance is based on a diluted weighted-average common share count of 79.4 million shares and assumes no new acquisitions beyond those made to date, no new debt incurrences or new equity issuances, and 2.0% CPI-based rent escalators under CareTrust REIT's long-term net leases.

Dividend Declared

During the quarter, CareTrust REIT declared a quarterly dividend of $0.205 per common share. “On an annualized basis, our quarterly dividend represents a payout ratio of approximately 64% based on the third quarter 2018 normalized FFO, and 62% on normalized FAD,” said Mr. Wagner. “At this level, our dividend remains among the best-protected of all our industry peers, while simultaneously providing additional growth capital for reinvestment and a solid overall return to our shareholders,” he added.

Acquisitions in the Quarter and Since

During the third quarter CareTrust acquired Prairie Heights Healthcare Center, a 99-bed skilled nursing facility in Aberdeen, South Dakota, in the first leg of a two-property transaction. It completed the second leg, acquiring The Meadows on University, a 110-bed skilled nursing facility in Fargo, North Dakota, subsequent to quarter end. Both facilities were formerly operated by affiliates of HCR ManorCare, and the staggered closing was necessitated by the differing timelines for obtaining regulatory approvals in the two states. The total investment was approximately $14.4 million, inclusive of transaction costs, CareTrust added the properties to its existing master lease with Salt Lake Citybased Eduro Healthcare, LLC, producing an annual cash rent increase of approximately $1.294 million. CareTrust funded the acquisition using cash on hand.

Also in the quarter, CareTrust acquired The Villas at Saratoga, a 112-bed/unit skilled nursing and assisted living campus in Saratoga, Springs, California. The property was formerly owned and operated by a religious non-profit, requiring an extra layer of government approval for the transfer of operations to a for-profit operator. The total initial investment was approximately $18.9 million, inclusive of transaction costs. The facility was leased to affiliates of Kalesta Healthcare LLC, a San Jose-area-based skilled nursing and seniors housing operator, at a cash rent for the first two years of $3.4 million, with annual CPI-based escalations thereafter. Additionally, CareTrust has committed to fund approximately $1.4 million in revenue-producing capital expenditures over the first 24 months of the 15-year master lease term. The acquisition was funded using cash on hand.

Also subsequent to quarter end, CareTrust acquired Madison Park Healthcare, a 55-bed/unit skilled nursing and assisted living campus in Huntington, West Virginia, in a sale-leaseback transaction. The transaction allowed the operator, Tennessee-based Providence Health Group, Inc., to recapitalize the facility and acquire the portion of the operation it did not own. The total investment was approximately $7.2 million, inclusive of transaction costs, and the new master lease carries an annual cash rent of approximately $676,000. CareTrust funded the acquisition using cash on hand and $5.0 million in borrowings under our revolving credit facility.

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 real estate impairment charges, certain deferred preferred return, losses on the extinguishment of debt, reserve for advances and deferred rent and gains or losses from dispositions of real estate or other real estate investments. 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 dispositions of real estate or other real estate investments, real estate depreciation and amortization and real estate 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 fees 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 losses on the extinguishment of debt, certain deferred preferred returns, the effect of the senior unsecured notes payable redemption 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, indebtedness and other charges that are not indicative of its ongoing results, 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 fees, 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.
