Net Income Attributable to The RMR Group Inc. of $0.58 Per Diluted Share and Adjusted Net Income Attributable to The RMR Group Inc. of $0.57 Per Diluted Share

NEWTON, Mass.--()--The RMR Group Inc. (Nasdaq: RMR) today announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2019.

Adam Portnoy, President and Chief Executive Officer, made the following statement regarding the first quarter fiscal 2020 results:

During the first fiscal quarter, we continued to assist our Client Companies with both the integration of recently completed acquisitions and their strategic repositioning efforts. The integration of Service Properties Trust’s $2.4 billion net leased retail portfolio acquisition has progressed as planned, with the incremental financial benefits to The RMR Group remaining in line with our forecasts.

We also continued making significant progress in executing on the repositioning efforts at Office Properties Income Trust and Diversified Healthcare Trust, which we believe will lead to increases in total shareholder returns at each of these Client Companies. More specifically, Office Properties Income Trust recently announced aggregate property sales for the 2019 calendar year of $848.9 million and Diversified Healthcare Trust recently announced the completion of the restructuring of its business arrangements with its largest tenant, Five Star Senior Living Inc., and that it has sold or has under agreement to sell approximately $678 million of properties.

At the close of the first fiscal quarter, our balance sheet continues to leave us well positioned to assess strategic opportunities for future growth, with $385.7 million of cash and no debt.”

Reconciliations to GAAP:

Adjusted net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc., EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP financial measures. The GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to adjusted net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc. is net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc., the GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is net income, while the GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA Margin is Operating Margin, which represents operating income divided by total management and advisory services revenues. Reconciliations of net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc. determined in accordance with GAAP to adjusted net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc., and of net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as well as calculations of Operating Margin and Adjusted EBITDA Margin for each of the three months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 are presented later in this press release.

Assets Under Management:

The calculation of gross assets under management, or gross AUM, primarily includes: (i) the gross book value of real estate and related assets, excluding depreciation, amortization, impairment charges or other non-cash reserves, of the Managed Equity REITs and ABP Trust, plus (ii) the gross book value of real estate assets, property and equipment of the Managed Operators, excluding depreciation, amortization, impairment charges or other non-cash reserves, plus (iii) the fair value of investments of Affiliates Insurance Company and the RMR Office Property Fund LP, the managed assets of RMR Real Estate Income Fund and the equity of Tremont Mortgage Trust. This calculation of gross AUM may include amounts that are higher than the calculations of assets under management used for purposes of calculating fees under the terms of the business management agreements.

The calculation of fee paying assets under management, or fee paying AUM, refers to the fact that base business management fees payable to The RMR Group LLC by the Managed Equity REITs are calculated monthly based upon the lower of the average historical cost of each entity's real estate assets and its average market capitalization. Management fees payable to The RMR Group LLC by other client companies are generally calculated as a percentage of revenues earned, average daily managed assets, equity, net asset value or total premiums paid under active insurance policies in accordance with the applicable management agreement.

All references in this press release to assets under management on, or as of, a date are calculated at a point in time.

For additional information on the calculation of assets under management for purposes of the fee provisions of the business management agreements, see The RMR Group Inc.’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2019, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC. The RMR Group Inc.’s SEC filings are available at the SEC website: www.sec.gov.

(1) EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP financial measures calculated as presented in the tables above. The RMR Group Inc. considers EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin to be appropriate supplemental measures of its operating performance, along with net income, net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc., operating income and operating margin. The RMR Group Inc. believes that EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin provide useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain amounts, such as those outlined in the tables above, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin may facilitate a comparison of current operating performance with The RMR Group Inc.’s historical operating performance and with the performance of other asset management businesses. In addition, The RMR Group Inc. believes that providing Adjusted EBITDA Margin may help investors assess The RMR Group Inc.’s performance of its business by providing the margin that Adjusted EBITDA represents to its contractual management and advisory fees (excluding any incentive business management fees). EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc., operating income or operating margin as an indicator of The RMR Group Inc.’s financial performance or as a measure of The RMR Group Inc.’s liquidity. Other asset management businesses may calculate EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin differently than The RMR Group Inc. does.

(1) Contractual management and advisory fees are the base business management fees, property management fees and advisory fees The RMR Group Inc. or its subsidiaries earns pursuant to its management and investment advisory agreements with its client companies. These amounts are calculated pursuant to the contractual formulas and do not deduct other asset amortization of $2,354 for each of the three months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, required to be recognized as a reduction to management services revenues in accordance with GAAP and do not include the incentive business management fees of $120,094 that The RMR Group Inc. recognized under GAAP during the three months ended December 31, 2018, which were earned for the calendar year 2018.

WARNING CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other securities laws. Forward-looking statements can be identified by use of words such as “outlook,” “believe,” “expect,” “potential,” “will,” “may,” “estimate,” “anticipate” and derivatives or negatives of such words or similar words. Forward-looking statements in this press release are based upon present beliefs or expectations. However, forward-looking statements and their implications are not guaranteed to occur and may not occur for various reasons, including some reasons beyond The RMR Group Inc.’s control. For example:

  • Mr. Portnoy states that in the 2020 first fiscal quarter, The RMR Group Inc. continued to assist their Client Companies with both the integration of recently completed acquisitions and their strategic repositioning efforts. He also states the integration of Service Properties Trust’s $2.4 billion net leased retail portfolio acquisition has progressed as planned, with the incremental financial benefits to The RMR Group Inc. remaining in line with The RMR Group Inc.’s forecasts and that The RMR Group Inc. has continued making significant progress on repositioning efforts at Office Properties Income Trust and Diversified Healthcare Trust, which The RMR Group Inc. believes will lead to increases in total shareholder returns at these Client Companies. These statements may imply that the Client Companies will succeed in integrating recently completed acquisitions and executing their strategic repositionings and that The RMR Group Inc. and the Client Companies will benefit from these activities. However, integrating acquisitions and executing strategic repositionings are subject to various risks, some of which are beyond The RMR Group Inc.’s and its Client Companies’ control. Further, even if these integration and strategic repositioning activities are executed successfully, the Client Companies and The RMR Group Inc. may not realize the benefits they expect from these activities, including increased total shareholder returns at the applicable Client Companies;
  • Mr. Portnoy also references property sales that Diversified Healthcare Trust has under agreement. However, those pending sales are subject to conditions and may not occur, may be delayed or their terms may change; and
  • Mr. Portnoy states that, at the close of the first fiscal quarter, The RMR Group Inc.’s balance sheet continues to leave it well positioned to assess strategic opportunities for future growth. This statement may imply that The RMR Group Inc. will successfully assess and act upon strategic opportunities for future growth and that The RMR Group Inc.’s business will grow and that its operating performance and financial results will improve as a result. However, The RMR Group Inc.’s assessments and efforts may not be successful, it may not grow its business, its operating performance and financial results may not improve, and it may realize losses as a result.

The information contained in The RMR Group Inc.’s filings with the SEC, including under the caption “Risk Factors” in The RMR Group Inc.’s periodic reports, or incorporated therein, identifies important factors that could cause differences from the forward-looking statements in this press release. The RMR Group Inc.’s filings with the SEC are available on its website and at www.sec.gov.

Except as required by law, The RMR Group Inc. undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
