NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Brookdale Senior Living Inc. (NYSE: BKD) (the "Company") today reported financial and operating results for the first quarter of 2013. 

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130501/NY05812LOGO )

  • Cash From Facility Operations ("CFFO") was $69.9 million, or $0.57 per share, a 19.6% increase compared to CFFO of $58.5 million, or $0.48 per share, for the first quarter of 2012, excluding $2.1 million and $3.9 million of integration, transaction-related and electronic medical records ("EMR") roll-out costs for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. 
  • Average occupancy was 88.5%, a 70 basis point increase from 87.8% in the first quarter of 2012 and down 20 basis points from the fourth quarter of 2012. 
  • Average monthly revenue per unit for the senior housing portfolio improved by 2.8% to $4,375 for the first quarter of 2013 from $4,257 for the first quarter of 2012.
  • Same community Facility Operating Income for the senior housing portfolio grew by 6.1% compared to the prior year quarter as same community revenue grew by 3.6% and same community expenses grew by 2.4%, with margin improving to 34.5%, an 80 basis point increase.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $112.4 million, up 11.8% as compared to $100.5 million in the first quarter of 2012, excluding integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs in both periods.
  • Net income was $3.6 million for the first quarter of 2013 compared to a net loss of $10.5 million in the first quarter of 2012.

Andy Smith, Brookdale's CEO, said, "We are very pleased with our first quarter results.  It's a solid start to the year. We are encouraged by the trends we continue to see driving organic growth. Occupancy was up 70 basis points over last year's first quarter and first quarter move-ins increased 7% from a year ago.  Pricing growth remained steady as revenue per unit for our senior housing business increased 2.8% versus the prior year period. We also made significant progress in controlling our cost growth, demonstrating our business model's inherent leverage when occupancy and rate grow. With the senior living industry's largest and most comprehensive platform, we continue to be enthusiastic about our prospects for 2013, and we remain intently focused on creating value for our shareholders."

Mark Ohlendorf, Co-President and CFO of Brookdale, commented, "The Company's good first quarter results come from solid execution, a less volatile economy and, importantly, the investments we are making in our own assets.  Upgrading, expanding and repositioning select communities in our portfolio remains our highest capital deployment priority and produces enhanced returns and CFFO.  Our strong cash flow generation and access to capital provide us with the ability to redevelop and reposition our communities to take advantage of favorable industry dynamics as well as to meet the evolving needs of our residents and their families."

Financial Results

Total revenue for the first quarter was $712.3 million, an increase of $29.6 million, or 4.3%, from the first quarter of 2012.  First quarter 2013 total revenue is comprised of resident fee revenue of $624.4 million, which increased $27.8 million, or 4.7%, from the first quarter of 2012, management fee revenue of $7.6 million, which increased $0.2 million, or 2.2%, from the first quarter of 2012, and managed community reimbursed costs of $80.3 million, which increased $1.6 million, or 2.0%.

Resident fee revenue increased primarily as a result of an increase in the average monthly revenue per unit compared to the prior year period and an increase in occupancy.  Average monthly revenue per unit for the senior housing portfolio was $4,375 in the first quarter, an increase of $118, or 2.8%, over the first quarter of 2012.  Average occupancy for all consolidated communities for the first quarter of 2013 was 88.5%, compared to 87.8% for the first quarter of 2012 and 88.7% for the fourth quarter of 2012.  For the managed community portfolio, which includes a number of pre-stabilized communities in the initial fill-up phase, average occupancy for the first quarter was 84.9%, a 60 basis point increase from 84.3% in the first quarter of 2012 and a 50 basis point decrease from the fourth quarter of 2012.  

Facility operating expenses for the first quarter were $413.0 million, an increase of $14.2 million, or 3.6%, from the first quarter of 2012.  Costs incurred on behalf of managed communities increased $1.6 million, or 2.0%.

General and administrative expenses for the first quarter were $46.6 million.  Excluding integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs of $2.1 million and $3.9 million in the first quarters of 2013 and 2012, respectively, and non-cash stock-based compensation expense from both periods, general and administrative expenses were $37.6 million in the first quarter of 2013 versus $34.6 million for the prior year same period.  Demonstrating the Company's efficient platform, general and administrative expenses were, excluding these items, 4.8% of resident fee revenue (including resident fee revenues under management) in the first quarter of 2013, up from 4.6% the prior year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Brookdale's management utilizes Adjusted EBITDA and CFFO to evaluate the Company's performance and liquidity because these metrics exclude non-cash items such as depreciation and amortization, asset impairment charges, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, gain on facility lease termination and straight-line lease expense, net of deferred gain amortization.  Adjusted EBITDA and Cash From Facility Operations include integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs of $2.1 million and $3.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.  Brookdale also uses Facility Operating Income to assess the performance of its communities.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2013, Facility Operating Income was $204.2 million, an increase of $12.5 million, or 6.5%, over the first quarter of 2012, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs in 2013 and 2012, was $112.4 million, an increase of $11.9 million, or 11.8%, over the first quarter of 2012.  

Cash From Facility Operations was $67.8 million for the first quarter of 2013, or $0.55 per share.  CFFO, excluding integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs for both periods, was $69.9 million for the first quarter of 2013, or $0.57 per share, an increase of $11.5 million, or 19.6%, over CFFO of $58.5 million, or $0.48 per share, for the first quarter of 2012. 

Net Income

Net income for the first quarter of 2013 was $3.6 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted common share. The net income for the quarter includes non-cash items for depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation expense and straight-line lease expense, net of deferred gain amortization.

Operating Activities

The Company reports information on six segments.  Four segments (Retirement Centers, Assisted Living, CCRCs - Rental and CCRCs - Entry Fee) constitute the Company's consolidated senior housing portfolio.  The fifth segment, Innovative Senior Care, includes the Company's outpatient therapy, home health and hospice services.  The sixth segment, Management Services, includes the services provided to unconsolidated communities that are operated under management agreements.

Senior Housing

Revenue for the consolidated senior housing portfolio was $564.2 million for the first quarter of 2013, an increase of 4.0% from the first quarter of 2012.  Revenue was positively impacted by a 70 basis point increase in occupancy and a 2.8% increase in rate over the first quarter of 2012.  Facility operating expenses increased by $9.6 million, or 2.7%, with operating margin increasing to 35.1% from 34.3% in the first quarter of 2012. Operating income for the senior housing portfolio for the first quarter of 2013 increased by $11.9 million, or 6.4%, from the first quarter of 2012.

Same community results for the consolidated senior housing portfolio for the three months ended March 31, 2013 showed revenues grew 3.6% over the corresponding period in 2012 as revenue per unit increased by 2.6% and occupancy grew by 90 basis points.  Same community expenses grew by 2.4% over the first quarter of 2012.  Same community Facility Operating Income for the senior housing portfolio increased by 6.1% over the first quarter of 2012.  

Innovative Senior Care

Revenue for the Company's ISC segment increased $6.3 million, or 11.8%, to $60.2 million, for the first quarter of 2013, primarily due to the roll-out of the Company's ancillary services programs to additional units.  In comparison to the first quarter of 2012, a volume increase in home health was partially offset by a reduction in volume in outpatient therapy.  ISC operating expenses increased $4.6 million, or 10.9%, primarily due to an increase in expenses incurred in connection with the continued expansion of the Company's ancillary services programs.  As a result, ISC operating income was $13.1 million, an increase of $1.7 million, or 14.9%, versus the first quarter of 2012.

By the end of the first quarter, the Company's ancillary services programs provided outpatient therapy services to approximately 38,000 Brookdale units and the Company's home health agencies were serving approximately 32,400 units across the consolidated Brookdale portfolio.   Including non-consolidated communities served by ISC, the Company's outpatient therapy and home health operations serve approximately 51,500 and 45,700 units, respectively.  The Company had six markets where hospice services were provided during the first quarter.

Liquidity

Brookdale had $28.2 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents and $105.0 million of restricted cash on its balance sheet at the end of the first quarter.  As of March 31, 2013, the Company had an available secured line of credit with a $230.0 million commitment and $198.6 million of availability (of which $45.0 million had been drawn as of that date).  The Company also had secured and unsecured letter of credit facilities of up to $92.5 million in the aggregate as of March 31, 2013, with issued letters of credit totaling $78.0 million.

Transactions

During the first quarter, two communities were acquired by a joint venture in which the Company has a minority interest.  The communities will be managed by the Company.  The Company also sold two communities for an aggregate selling price of $7.2 million.  The results of operations of the disposed communities were previously reported in the Assisted Living segment.  Management contracts for three newly-opened communities began in the first quarter.

During April, the Company completed refinancings of several mortgage loans totaling $339.3 million, which primarily had maturities in 2013.  In their place, the Company obtained mortgage loans totaling $312.0 million to repay the loans, with the remainder paid in cash.  Additionally, four communities became unencumbered and were added to the Company's line of credit borrowing capacity, increasing it by $25.7 million.

2013 Outlook

For the full year 2013, the Company continues to expect Cash From Facility Operations to range between $2.30 and $2.40 per share, excluding integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs.  These estimates do not include the impact on operating results from possible future acquisitions or dispositions.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of operating performance that is not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").  Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, income from operations or cash flows provided by or used in operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP.  Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure of the Company's operating performance used by management to focus on operating performance and management without mixing in items of income and expense that relate to long-term contracts and the financing and capitalization of the business.  We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before provision (benefit) for income taxes, non-operating (income) expense items, (gain) loss on sale or acquisition of communities (including  gain (loss) on facility lease termination), depreciation and amortization (including non-cash impairment charges), straight-line lease expense (income), amortization of deferred gain, amortization of deferred entrance fees, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, and change in future service obligation and including entrance fee receipts and refunds (excluding (i) first generation entrance fee receipts from the sale of units at a recently opened entrance fee CCRC prior to stabilization and (ii) first generation entrance fee refunds not replaced by second generation entrance fee receipts at the recently opened community prior to stabilization).

We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating our performance, results of operations and financial position for the following reasons:

  • It is helpful in identifying trends in our day-to-day performance because the items excluded have little or no significance to our day-to-day operations;
  • It provides an assessment of controllable expenses and affords management the ability to make decisions which are expected to facilitate meeting current financial goals as well as achieve optimal financial performance; and
  • It is an indication to determine if adjustments to current spending decisions are needed.

The table below reconciles Adjusted EBITDA from net income (loss) for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 (in thousands):

Cash From Facility Operations

Cash From Facility Operations (CFFO) is a measurement of liquidity that is not calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for cash flows provided by or used in operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP.  We define CFFO as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities adjusted for changes in operating assets and liabilities, deferred interest and fees added to principal, refundable entrance fees received, first generation entrance fee receipts at a recently opened entrance fee CCRC prior to stabilization, entrance fee refunds disbursed adjusted for first generation entrance fee refunds not replaced by second generation entrance fee receipts at the recently opened community prior to stabilization, lease financing debt amortization with fair market value or no purchase options, gain (loss) on facility lease termination, recurring capital expenditures (net), distributions from unconsolidated ventures from cumulative share of net earnings, CFFO from unconsolidated ventures, and other.  Recurring capital expenditures include routine expenditures capitalized in accordance with GAAP that are funded from current operations.  Amounts excluded from recurring capital expenditures consist primarily of major projects, renovations, community repositionings, expansions, systems projects or other non-recurring or unusual capital items (including integration capital expenditures) or community purchases that are funded using lease or financing proceeds, available cash and/or proceeds from the sale of communities that are held for sale.

We believe CFFO is useful to investors in evaluating our liquidity for the following reasons:

  • It provides an assessment of our ability to facilitate meeting current financial and liquidity goals.
  • To assess our ability to:

                (i)       

service our outstanding indebtedness;


                (ii)     

pay dividends; and


                (iii)      

make regular recurring capital expenditures to maintain and improve our facilities.

The table below reconciles CFFO from net cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 (in thousands):

Cash From Facility Operations

(1)

The calculation of Cash From Facility Operations includes integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs of $2.1 million and $3.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

(2)

Total entrance fee receipts for both the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 were $16.9 million,  and $15.0 million, respectively, including $9.2 million and $7.0 million, respectively, of non-refundable entrance fee receipts included in net cash provided by operating activities. 

The calculation of CFFO per share is based on weighted average outstanding common shares for the period, excluding any unvested restricted shares.  Annual CFFO per share for all periods is calculated as the sum of the quarterly amounts for the year.

Facility Operating Income

Facility Operating Income is not a measurement of operating performance calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for net income, income from operations, or cash flows provided by or used in operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP.  We define Facility Operating Income as net income (loss) before provision (benefit) for income taxes, non-operating (income) expense items, (gain) loss on sale or acquisition of communities (including gain (loss) on facility lease termination), depreciation and amortization (including non-cash impairment charges), facility lease expense, general and administrative expense, including non-cash stock-based compensation expense, change in future service obligation, amortization of deferred entrance fee revenue and management fees.

We believe Facility Operating Income is useful to investors in evaluating our facility operating performance for the following reasons:

  • It is helpful in identifying trends in our day-to-day facility performance;
  • It provides an assessment of our revenue generation and expense management; and
  • It provides an indicator to determine if adjustments to current spending decisions are needed.
