Financial Results

Total revenue for the fourth quarter was $734.2 million, an increase of $34.8 million, or 5.0%, from the fourth quarter of 2012.  Revenue for the full year 2013 was $2.9 billion, a 4.5% increase from $2.8 billion for the full year 2012.  Fourth quarter 2013 total revenue is comprised of resident fee revenue of $638.6 million, which increased $29.8 million, or 4.9%, from the fourth quarter of 2012, management fee revenue of $8.2 million, which decreased $0.3 million, or 3.4%, from the fourth quarter of 2012, and managed community reimbursed costs of $87.5 million, which increased $5.3 million, or 6.5%.

Resident fee revenue for the fourth quarter increased primarily as a result of an increase in the average monthly revenue per unit compared to the prior year period, an increase in occupancy and the inclusion of revenue from communities acquired during the period.  Average monthly revenue per unit for the senior housing portfolio was $4,387 in the fourth quarter, an increase of $105, or 2.5%, over the fourth quarter of 2012.  Average occupancy for all consolidated communities for the fourth quarter of 2013 was 89.0%, compared to 88.7% for the fourth quarter of 2012 and 89.0% for the third quarter of 2013.  For the managed community portfolio, which includes a number of pre-stabilized communities in the initial fill-up phase, average occupancy for the fourth quarter was 86.1%, compared to 85.4% for the fourth quarter of 2012 and 85.7% for the third quarter of 2013.  

For the full year of 2013, resident fee revenue increased from $2.4 billion to $2.5 billion. Average monthly revenue per unit increased to $4,383 for the full year of 2013, a 2.6% increase over the full year of 2012.  Average occupancy for all consolidated communities for the full year was 88.7%, compared to 88.0% for the full year of 2012.

Facility operating expenses for the fourth quarter were $422.3 million, an increase of $5.2 million, or 1.2%, from the fourth quarter of 2012.  Facility operating expenses for the full year 2013 were $1.7 billion, a 2.5% increase from $1.6 billion for the full year 2012. 

General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter were $46.1 million.  Excluding integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs of $4.1 million and $7.2 million in the fourth quarters of 2013 and 2012, respectively, and non-cash stock-based compensation expense from both periods, general and administrative expenses were $36.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 versus $31.0 million for the prior year same period.  General and administrative expenses, excluding these items, were 4.6% of resident fee revenue (including resident fee revenues under management) in the fourth quarter of 2013.

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 CFFO include integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs of $4.1 million and $14.5 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013, respectively, and $7.2 million and $23.5 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively.  Brookdale also uses Facility Operating Income to assess the performance of its communities.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2013, Facility Operating Income was $206.5 million, an increase of $19.2 million, or 10.2%, over the fourth quarter of 2012, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs in 2013 and 2012, was $129.1 million, an increase of $19.8 million, or 18.1%, over the fourth quarter of 2012.  For the year ended December 31, 2013, Facility Operating Income was $812.2 million, an increase of $53.3 million, or 7.0%, over the full year of 2012, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs in 2013 and 2012, was $477.7 million, an increase of $44.3 million, or 10.2%, over the full year of 2012.  

Cash From Facility Operations was $84.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, or $0.68 per share.  CFFO, excluding integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs for both periods, was $88.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, or $0.71 per share, an increase of $19.9 million, or 29%, over CFFO of $68.7 million, or $0.56 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2012.  CFFO, excluding integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs for both periods, was $308.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, or $2.50 per share, an increase of $46.1 million, or 17.6%, over CFFO of $262.4 million, or $2.15 per share, for the full year of 2012.

Net Loss

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $(1.0) million, or $(0.01) per diluted common share, versus a net loss of $(24.7) million, or $(0.20) per diluted common share, in the fourth quarter of 2012.

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, Brookdale Ancillary Services, 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 $576.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of 4.3% from the fourth quarter of 2012.  Revenue was positively impacted by a 30 basis point increase in occupancy and a 2.5% increase in rate over the fourth quarter of 2012.  Facility operating expenses were $369.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 0.6% from the fourth quarter of 2012.  Operating income for the senior housing portfolio for the fourth quarter of 2013 increased by $26.0 million, or 14.4%, to $206.6 million from the fourth quarter of 2012, with operating margin increasing from 32.7% to 35.8%.

Same community results for the consolidated senior housing portfolio for the three months ended December 31, 2013 showed revenues grew 2.9% over the corresponding period in 2012 as revenue per unit increased by 2.5% and occupancy grew by 40 basis points.  Same community expenses decreased by 1.5% over the fourth quarter of 2012.  Same community Facility Operating Income for the senior housing portfolio increased by 12.5% over the fourth quarter of 2012.  

Brookdale Ancillary Services (formerly called Innovative Senior Care)

Revenue for the Company's ancillary services segment increased $6.0 million, or 10.7%, to $62.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, primarily due to the roll-out of the Company's ancillary services programs to additional locations.  In comparison to the fourth quarter of 2012, a volume increase in home health was offset by a reduction in volume in outpatient therapy and a reduction in Medicare reimbursement rates.  The ancillary services operating expenses increased $7.4 million, or 16.5%, primarily due to an increase in expenses incurred in connection with the continued expansion of the Company's ancillary services programs.  As a result, ancillary services operating income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $9.6 million, a decrease of $1.4 million, or 12.8%, versus the fourth quarter of 2012.

By the end of the fourth quarter, the Company's ancillary services programs provided outpatient therapy services to approximately 38,300 units and the Company's home health agencies were serving approximately 33,900 units across the consolidated Brookdale portfolio.  Including non-consolidated communities, the Company's outpatient therapy and home health operations serve approximately 52,300 and 46,800 units, respectively.  The Company had 11 markets where hospice services were provided during the fourth quarter, with three more markets waiting for licensure approval.

Liquidity

Brookdale had $58.5 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents and $95.8 million of restricted cash on its balance sheet at the end of the fourth quarter.  As of December 31, 2013, the Company had $250.0 million of availability on its secured line of credit (of which $30.0 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 December 31, 2013.  Letters of credit totaling $72.5 million had been issued under these facilities as of that date.

Transactions

Effective October 1, 2013, the Company acquired seven communities for an aggregate purchase price of $80.9 million.  The Company managed six of the communities since the acquisition of Horizon Bay in September 2011. The Company financed the transaction with $60.8 million of first mortgage financing (substantially through the assumption of existing debt), with the balance of the purchase price paid from cash on hand. The results of operations of the communities acquired are reported in the Assisted Living segment.

During the fourth quarter, the Company sold two communities for an aggregate selling price of $28.0 million.  The results of operations of the communities were previously reported in the Assisted Living and CCRCs - Rental segments.

2014 Outlook

For the full year 2014, the Company expects Cash From Facility Operations to range between $2.68 and $2.75 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.

(1)   The calculation of Adjusted EBITDA includes integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs of $4.1 million and $14.5 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013, respectively. The calculation of Adjusted EBITDA includes integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs of $7.2 million and $23.5 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively.
(2)   Includes the receipt of refundable and non-refundable entrance fees.

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 and years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 (in thousands):

The calculation of Cash From Facility Operations includes integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs of $7.2 million and $23.5 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively.
(2)   Total entrance fee receipts for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 were $32.5 million and $22.9 million, respectively, including $13.6 million and $9.8 million, respectively, of non-refundable entrance fee receipts included in net cash provided by operating activities.  Total entrance fee receipts for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 were $92.3 million and $82.7 million, respectively, including $44.2 million and $40.1 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.
