Brookdale Announces Second Quarter 2015 Results

Aug 03, 2015, 16:47 ET from Brookdale Senior Living Inc.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Brookdale Senior Living Inc. (NYSE: BKD) ("Brookdale" or the "Company") today reported financial and operating results for the second quarter of 2015. Highlights included:

  • Cash From Facility Operations ("CFFO") of $0.60 per share for the second quarter of 2015, a decline from $0.63 per share in the first quarter of 2015, excluding integration, transaction, transaction-related and electronic medical records ("EMR") roll-out costs in both periods. 
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $230.1 million in the second quarter of 2015, a 0.3% decrease from the first quarter of 2015, excluding integration, transaction, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs in both periods. 
  • Same Community average monthly revenue per unit growth of 2.8% compared with the second quarter of 2014, led by 3.8% growth in the legacy Brookdale portfolio.
  • Average occupancy for all consolidated communities in the second quarter of 2015 of 86.5%, a decline of 90 basis points from the first quarter of 2015.

Andy Smith, Brookdale's CEO, said, "Our second quarter experience underscored our belief in the long-term growth potential of our company; however, our near-term operating performance was below our expectations. Our typical seasonal increase in occupancy occurred late in the quarter and was more muted than usual. This lower than expected occupancy was only partly offset by solid rate performance, effective expense management and growing cost synergies.  Given our lower than expected occupancy level entering the third quarter, we are revising our 2015 CFFO guidance to a range of $2.35 to $2.45 per share, excluding integration, transaction, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs." 

Mr. Smith continued, "We have made solid progress integrating Emeritus into our platform over the past year.  We remain very confident that we will achieve our longer-term expectations for the Emeritus merger.  Nevertheless, the integration effort has been more challenging in certain respects than we originally anticipated. Our occupancy decline reflected an industry-wide trend and the consequences of these integration challenges.  As we complete the fourth and final stage of our systems and process cutovers, we expect our sales and marketing efforts to continue to normalize as our teams focus less on integration and more on their day-to-day responsibilities.  We also expect to begin to realize growing and higher-than-anticipated cost synergies as we move forward."

Financial Results

The second quarter of 2015 represents the third full quarter of results that include the operations of Emeritus, which the Company acquired on July 31, 2014, as well as the impact from the transactions with HCP, Inc., which closed on August 29, 2014. Results beginning with the fourth quarter of 2014 reflect the full impact of those transactions, and results from the first and second quarters of 2014 reflect legacy Brookdale on a stand-alone basis (except for our Same Community results, which include results for the Emeritus Same Community group on a proforma basis).

Total revenue of $1.2 billion for the second quarter of 2015 was relatively flat compared with the first quarter of 2015, with resident fees declining $8.3 million.  Average monthly revenue per unit for the consolidated senior housing portfolio was $4,331 in the second quarter of 2015, an increase of $26, or 0.6%, over the first quarter of 2015.  Average occupancy for all consolidated communities for the second quarter of 2015 was 86.5%, compared to 87.4% for the first quarter of 2015.  Total revenue for the second quarter of 2015 increased $489.8 million, or 65.4%, from the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to the acquisition of Emeritus and new units added to existing communities, partially offset by the effect of the Company's contribution of entry fee CCRCs to a venture with HCP on August 29, 2014.

Facility operating expenses for the second quarter of 2015 were $695.0 million, an increase of $259.6 million, or 59.6%, from the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to the acquisition of Emeritus. Excluding management services in all periods, operating margin was 33.4% for the second quarter of 2015 versus 33.8% for the first quarter of 2015 and 33.4% for the second quarter of 2014. Net loss attributable to Brookdale common stockholders for the second quarter of 2015 was $(84.5) million, or $(0.46) per share, versus net loss attributable to Brookdale common stockholders of $(3.3) million, or $(0.03) per share, in the second quarter of 2014.

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 (loss) on facility lease termination and straight-line lease expense, net of deferred gain amortization. Adjusted EBITDA and CFFO included integration, transaction, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014 of $29.0 million, $27.3 million and $11.9 million, respectively. Brookdale also uses Facility Operating Income to assess the performance of its communities.

Facility Operating Income was $348.1 million in the second quarter of 2015, a decline of $6.5 million, or 1.8%, over the first quarter of 2015 and an increase of $137.5 million, or 65.3%, over the second quarter of 2014.  Adjusted EBITDA, excluding integration, transaction, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs, was $230.1 million for the second quarter of 2015, a decrease of $0.7 million, or 0.3%, over the first quarter of 2015 and an increase of $98.8 million, or 75.3%, over the second quarter of 2014.  

CFFO was $80.9 million in the second quarter of 2015, or $0.44 per share.  Excluding integration, transaction, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs, CFFO was $109.9 million for the second quarter of 2015, a decline of $5.5 million, or 4.7%, compared with the first quarter of 2015, and an increase of $21.4 million, or 24.1%, compared with the second quarter of 2014.

Liquidity and Transactions

Brookdale had $78.5 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents and $85.0 million of restricted cash and escrow deposits as of June 30, 2015. 

On June 30, 2015, Brookdale and HCP entered into a RIDEA joint venture, which acquired 35 senior housing communities for $847 million. The Company contributed $30.3 million in cash to the RIDEA joint venture.  Brookdale owns a 10% ownership interest, and HCP owns a 90% ownership interest.  The Company had operated these communities since its acquisition of Horizon Bay in 2011 and will continue to manage the communities under a long-term management agreement.

Outlook

For the full year 2015, the Company now expects CFFO per share in a range of $2.35 to $2.45, excluding integration, transaction, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs.  This guidance excludes the potential impact of any future acquisition or disposition activity.

The Company will shortly post on the Investor Relations section of the Company's website at www.brookdale.com supplemental information relating to the Company's second quarter 2015 results.  This information will also be furnished in a Form 8-K to be filed with the SEC.

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), net of amortization of (above) below market rents, amortization of deferred gain, amortization of deferred entrance fees, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, change in future service obligation, and Cash From Facility Operations from unconsolidated ventures 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 loss for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014 (in thousands):

The calculation of Adjusted EBITDA includes integration, transaction, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs of $29.0 million, $27.3 million and $11.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively. Integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs include third party expenses directly related to the integration of Emeritus and corporate capital structure assessment activities (including shareholder relations advisory matters) as well as internal costs such as labor reflecting time spent by Company personnel on integration and transaction-related activity and severance costs.  Transaction costs include third party costs directly related to the acquisition of Emeritus and other acquisition and community leasing activity and are primarily comprised of legal, finance, consulting, professional fees and other third party costs.

The definition of Adjusted EBITDA was changed in the first quarter of 2015 to include CFFO from unconsolidated ventures.  Prior periods have been recast to conform to the new definition.

Includes the receipt of refundable and non-refundable entrance fees.

 

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.

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 communities.

The table below reconciles CFFO from net cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014 (in thousands):

The calculation of Cash From Facility Operations includes integration, transaction, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs of $29.0 million, $27.3 million and $11.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively. Integration, transaction-related and EMR roll-out costs include third party expenses directly related to the integration of Emeritus and corporate capital structure assessment activities (including shareholder relations advisory matters) as well as internal costs such as labor reflecting time spent by Company personnel on integration and transaction-related activity and severance costs.  Transaction costs include third party costs directly related to the acquisition of Emeritus and other acquisition and community leasing activity and are primarily comprised of legal, finance, consulting, professional fees and other third party costs. 

 

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, transaction costs, 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.
