Welltower Reports 9% Increase in First Quarter Normalized FFO to $1.13 Per Diluted Share

Total Portfolio Same Store NOI Growth of 3.8%, Led by 5.5% Growth in Seniors Housing Operating

Same Store Seniors Housing Operating Occupancy Increased 60 bps to 90.7% with REVPOR Growth of 4.2%

Increasing 2016 Total Portfolio Same Store NOI Guidance to 2.75%-3.25%

TOLEDO, Ohio--()--Welltower Inc. (NYSE:HCN) today announced solid growth for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, driven by higher same store NOI and strategic progress as a leader in health care infrastructure.

“The quality of our real estate and our financial strength stand out more than ever as competitive advantages,” said Welltower CEO Thomas J. DeRosa. “This was an exceptional quarter of NOI growth across our portfolio and is further validation of our capital allocation discipline and focused investment strategy. Our seniors housing operating portfolio generated exceptional 5.5% same store NOI growth, as assets located in high-barrier to entry markets with best-in-class operators continue to produce superior growth on an absolute and relative basis. This strong start allowed us to increase our total portfolio same store NOI guidance for the year, reflecting increasing confidence in the 2016 performance of our industry leading platform.”

Earnings Results For the quarter, we generated normalized FFO and FAD per share of $1.13 and $1.01, respectively, representing 9% and 10% increases from the first quarter of 2015. First quarter results were positively impacted by strong trailing-four-quarter average total same store cash NOI growth, net investments of $1.8 billion and average net debt to undepreciated book capitalization ratio of 38.5%.

Dividend Growth As previously announced, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 of $0.86 per share, as compared to $0.825 per share for the same period in 2015, which represents a 4.2% increase. On May 20, 2016, we will pay our 180th consecutive quarterly cash dividend. The declaration and payment of quarterly dividends remains subject to review by and approval of the Board of Directors.

Capital Activity On March 31, 2016, we had $356 million of cash and cash equivalents and $1.9 billion of available borrowing capacity under our primary unsecured credit facility. During the first quarter, we generated approximately $93.2 million in proceeds under our DRIP and ATM equity programs. In March 2016, we completed a public offering of $700 million of 10-year 4.25% senior unsecured notes. The notes were priced at 99.227% of their face amount to yield 4.345%. In March 2016, we repaid all $400 million of our 5-year 3.625% senior unsecured notes upon maturity.

Outlook for 2016 We are affirming our 2016 earnings guidance and expect to report normalized FFO in a range of $4.50 to $4.60 per diluted share and normalized FAD in a range of $3.95 to $4.05 per diluted share, both representing a 3%-5% increase. Additionally, in preparing our guidance, we have updated the following assumptions:

  • Same Store Cash NOI: We are increasing 2016 SSCNOI guidance and now expect growth of approximately 2.75%-3.25% from the previous range of 2.5%-3.0%.
  • Acquisitions: 2016 earnings guidance does not include any acquisitions beyond what has been announced, including those completed in the first quarter and approximately $98 million at an initial cash yield of 7.5% associated with the Mainstreet partnership.
  • Development: We anticipate funding additional development of $363 million in 2016 relating to projects underway on March 31, 2016. This excludes the midtown Manhattan project discussed below. We expect development conversions of approximately $283 million in the remainder of 2016. These investments are currently expected to generate yields of approximately 7.9%.
  • Dispositions: We anticipate approximately $1 billion of dispositions in 2016. This includes $303 million of proceeds from properties held for sale at a blended yield of 6.5% with the remainder representing loan payoffs and other potential property sales.

Net income attributable to common stockholders has been revised to a range of $2.07 to $2.17 per diluted share from the previous range of $2.04 to $2.14 per diluted share primarily due to impairment, change in depreciation estimate and normalizing items in Exhibit 1. Our guidance does not include any additional investments, dispositions or capital transactions beyond what we have announced, nor any transaction costs, 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 and FAD. We will provide additional detail regarding our 2016 outlook and assumptions on the first quarter 2016 conference call.

Investment and Disposition Activity We completed $348 million of pro rata gross investments for the quarter including $204 million in acquisitions/JVs, $96 million in development funding and $48 million in loans. 100% of these investments were completed with existing relationships. The $204 million acquisitions/JVs have a blended yield of 7.2% and were comprised of eight separate transactions. The $96 million in development funding is expected to yield 7.7% upon completion and the $48 million of loans were made at a blended rate of 9.9%. In addition to the new investment activity during the quarter, we placed into service three development property projects totaling $46 million at a yield of 8.4%. The investments are consistent with our strategy of investing in modern, high quality properties in major metropolitan markets with favorable supply/demand. Also during the quarter, we completed total dispositions of $116 million consisting entirely of loan payoffs at an average yield of 9.5%.

With this development, Hines and Welltower aim to address the aging demographic with a new residential building for Manhattan’s vastly underserved senior population in need of assisted living and memory care services. The new residence will offer the highest quality of care and the latest in health care innovation, while creating an environment focused on wellness and community. Design and development plans are currently underway and will be announced in greater detail at a later date.

Supplemental Reporting Measures We believe that net income attributable to common stockholders (NICS), as defined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP), is the most appropriate earnings measurement. However, we consider funds from operations (FFO), funds available for distribution (FAD), same store cash net operating income (SSCNOI) and same store revenues per occupied room (SS REVPOR) to be useful supplemental measures of our operating performance. 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, 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 represents FFO adjusted for certain items detailed in Exhibit 1. FAD represents FFO excluding net straight-line rental adjustments, amortization related to above/below market leases and amortization of non-cash interest expenses and less cash used to fund capital expenditures, tenant improvements and lease commissions. Normalized FAD represents FAD adjusted for certain items detailed in Exhibit 1. NOI is used to evaluate the operating performance of our properties. We believe that normalized FFO and normalized FAD are useful supplemental measures of operating performance because investors and equity analysts may use these measures 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, 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. SSCNOI is used to evaluate the cash-based 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. Any properties acquired, developed/redeveloped, transitioned, sold or classified as held for sale during that period are excluded from the same store amounts. Normalizers include adjustments and reclassifications that in management’s opinion are appropriate in considering SSCNOI, a supplemental, non-GAAP performance measure. None of these adjustments or reclassifications, which may increase or decrease SSCNOI, are reflected in our financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We believe SSCNOI provides investors relevant and useful information because it measures the operating performance of our properties at the property level on an unleveraged basis. REVPOR represents the average revenues generated per occupied room per month at our seniors housing operating properties. It is calculated as total revenues 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. 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 and equity analysts in the valuation, comparison 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, 2016, which is available on the company’s website (www.welltower.com), for information and reconciliations of additional supplemental reporting measures.
