NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

1.                                    General

 

 

LTC Properties, Inc., a health care real estate investment trust (or REIT), was incorporated on May 12, 1992 in the State of Maryland and commenced operations on August 25, 1992.  We invest primarily in senior housing and long-term health care properties through acquisitions, development, mortgage loans and other investments. We conduct and manage our business as one operating segment, rather than multiple operating segments, for internal reporting and internal decision making purposes.   Our primary objectives are to create, sustain and enhance stockholder equity value and provide current income for distribution to stockholders through real estate investments in senior housing and long-term health care properties managed by experienced operators.  Our primary senior housing and long-term health care property types include skilled nursing properties (or SNF), assisted living properties (or ALF), independent living properties (or ILF), memory care properties (or MC) and combinations thereof. To meet these objectives, we attempt to invest in properties that provide opportunity for additional value and current returns to our stockholders and diversify our investment portfolio by geographic location, operator, property type and form of investment.

 

We have prepared consolidated financial statements included herein without audit and in the opinion of management have included all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the consolidated financial statements pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (or SEC).  Certain information and note disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (or GAAP) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to rules and regulations governing the presentation of interim financial statements.  The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of our company, its wholly-owned subsidiaries.  All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.  The results of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results for a full year.

 

No provision has been made for federal or state income taxes.  Our company qualifies as a REIT under Sections 856 through 860 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.  As such, we generally are not taxed on income that is distributed to our stockholders.

 

Impact of New Accounting Pronouncement.

 

In April 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-08 (or ASU 2014-08), Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) and Property, Plant, and Equipment (Topic 360): Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity. The amendments in ASU 2014-08 change the criteria for reporting discontinued operations. Under ASU 2014-08, only disposals representing a strategic shift in operations should be presented as discontinued operations. Those strategic shifts should have a major effect on the organization’s operations and financial results. Examples include a disposal of a major geographic area, a major line of business, or a major equity method investment. ASU 2014-08 is effective in the first quarter of 2015 with early adoption permitted. We elected early adoption of ASU 2014-08 and have not reclassified results of operations for properties disposed subsequent to January 1, 2014 as discontinued operations as these disposals do not represent strategic shifts in our operations.

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09 (or ASU 2014-09), Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Topic 606. ASU 2014-09 provides for a single comprehensive principles based standard for the recognition of revenue across all industries through the application of the following five-step process:

 

Step 1: Identify the contract(s) with a customer.

Step 2: Identify the performance obligations in the contract.

Step 3: Determine the transaction price.

Step 4: Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract.

Step 5: Recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

ASU 2014-09 requires expanded disclosures about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. ASU 2014-09 is effective for annual reporting periods (including interim reporting periods within those periods) beginning after December 15, 2016. Early adoption is not permitted. The adoption of this guidance is not expected to have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

2.                                    Real Estate Investments

 

Assisted living properties, independent living properties, memory care properties, and combinations thereof are included in the assisted living property type. Range of care properties (or ROC) property type consists of properties providing skilled nursing and any combination of assisted living, independent living and/or memory care services.

 

Any reference to the number of properties, number of schools, number of units, number of beds, and yield on investments in real estate are unaudited and outside the scope of our independent registered public accounting firm’s review of our consolidated financial statements in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.

(3)           Includes one school property and five parcels of land held-for-use.

 

Owned properties are leased pursuant to non-cancelable operating leases generally with an initial term of 10 to 15 years.  Each lease is a triple net lease which requires the lessee to pay all taxes, insurance, maintenance and repairs, capital and non-capital expenditures and other costs necessary in the operations of the facilities.  Many of the leases contain renewal options.  The leases provide for fixed minimum base rent during the initial and renewal periods.  The majority of our leases contain provisions for specified annual increases over the rents of the prior year that are generally computed in one of four ways depending on specific provisions of each lease:

 

(i)                a specified percentage increase over the prior year’s rent, generally between 2.0% and 3.0%;

(ii)            a calculation based on the Consumer Price Index;

(iii)        as a percentage of facility net patient revenues in excess of base amounts; or

(iv)        specific dollar increases.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2014, we purchased a parcel of land in Michigan for $450,000. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we sold two assisted living properties located in Florida and Georgia with a total of 133 units and one school property located in Minnesota for a combined sales price of $7,850,000, resulting in net sales proceeds of $7,707,000, and a net gain on sale of $1,140,000. During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, we purchased two parcels of land in Colorado for $2,050,000 as part of development commitments to construct two free-standing memory care properties totaling $19,553,000. During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, we sold six skilled nursing properties located in Ohio and a skilled nursing property in Colorado with a total of 277 beds for $11,001,000.  As a result, we recorded a net gain on sale of $1,605,000.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we funded $6,192,000 on a $9,931,000 development commitment to construct a 60-unit memory care property located in Colorado.  Construction was completed and the property was opened in August 2014. Additionally, during the three months ended September 30, 2014, we completed the expansion of a 50-unit assisted living property in Colorado. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we funded $6,102,000 of the $6,600,000 commitment.

 

In October 2014, we purchased a parcel of land in Illinois for $1,400,000 and entered into a development commitment to construct a 66-unit free-standing memory care property. The commitment totals $12,248,000, including the land, and was made pursuant to a pipeline agreement and master lease with an existing operator.  Rent, at an initial annual rate of 9.30%, will commence upon completion of construction (but no later than December 31, 2016) and be calculated based on the land purchase price and construction costs funded.

 

Additionally, in October 2014, we entered into an agreement to consent to the closure of one assisted living property and sell 16 assisted living properties currently leased under master leases with affiliates of Extendicare, Inc. and Enlivant. The sales price for the 16 properties is $26,465,000 and we expect to record a gain on sale of approximately $3,909,000 in the fourth quarter of 2014. The net book value of the property we have consented to close is $954,000 and we are exploring sale and lease options for this property. See Note 7. Major Operators for further discussion.

 

We have a commitment to provide, under certain conditions, up to $5,000,000 per year through December 2014 to an existing operator for expansion of the 37 properties they lease from us. The estimated yield of this commitment is 9.5% plus the positive difference, if any, between the average yields on the U.S. Treasury 10-year note for the five days prior to funding, minus 420 basis points. As of September 30, 2014, no funds have been requested under this commitment and it is highly unlikely any funds will be expended based on the lease termination date.

 

Excluding the $5,000,000 per year commitment above, the following table summarizes our investment commitments as of September 30, 2014 and year-to-date funding on our open development, redevelopment, renovation, and expansion projects (excludes capitalized interest, dollar amounts in thousands):

(1)            We have investments in properties located in 10 states that include mortgages to 13 different operators.

(2)            Includes a mortgage and construction loan secured by a closed skilled nursing property and a newly constructed 106-bed replacement property. In October 2014, the closed skilled nursing property was sold by the borrower and released as collateral per the terms of the mortgage and construction loan.

 

At September 30, 2014, the mortgage loans had interest rates ranging from 7.1% to 13.9% and maturities ranging from 2014 to 2043.  In addition, some loans contain certain guarantees, provide for certain facility fees and generally have 20-year to 30-year amortization schedules.  The majority of the mortgage loans provide for annual increases in the interest rate based upon a specified increase of 10 to 25 basis points. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, we received $1,609,000 and $1,429,000, respectively, in regularly scheduled principal payments.

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2014, we originated a $3,027,000 mortgage loan secured by a 100-unit independent living property in Arizona. The loan is for a term of five years and bears interest at 7.0%, escalating 0.25% annually.  During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we funded $1,512,000 under a $12,000,000 capital improvement commitment to an existing borrower and $10,487,000 remains under this commitment at September 30, 2014. Additionally, during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, we funded $3,010,000 and $2,816,000, respectively, under a $10,600,000 mortgage and construction loan. This mortgage and construction loan has been fully funded with no remaining commitments and was secured by a skilled nursing property and a newly constructed 106-bed replacement skilled nursing property. Upon completion of construction, the residents of the old skilled nursing property were relocated to the newly constructed 106-bed replacement skilled nursing property and the old skilled nursing property was simultaneously closed. In October 2014, the closed skilled nursing property was sold by the borrower and released as collateral per the terms of the mortgage and construction loan.

3.                                    Notes Receivable

 

Notes receivable consists of various loans and line of credit agreements with certain operators. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we received $112,000 and funded $664,000 in principal under these notes. In the comparable 2013 period, we received $2,716,000 in principal payments which included $2,372,000 for the early repayment of an 8.5% term loan. Also, during the nine months ended September 30, 2013, we funded $795,000 under these notes.

 

At September 30, 2014, we had nine loans and line of credit agreements with commitments totaling $2,963,000. As of September 30, 2014, we funded $1,147,000 under these commitments and we have a remaining commitment of $1,816,000. The weighted average interest rate of these loans is 12.0%.

 

4.                                    Debt Obligations

 

Bank Borrowings. At September 30, 2014, we had an Unsecured Credit Agreement that provided for a revolving line of credit up to $240,000,000 with the opportunity to increase the credit amount up to a total of $350,000,000. The Unsecured Credit Agreement matured on May 25, 2016 and provided for a one-year extension option at our discretion, subject to customary conditions. Based on our leverage at September 30, 2014, the facility provided for interest annually at LIBOR plus 150 basis points and an unused commitment fee of 30 basis points. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we borrowed $28,500,000 and repaid $30,000,000 under our Unsecured Credit Agreement.  At September 30, 2014, we had $19,500,000 outstanding and $220,500,000 available for borrowing.  At September 30, 2014, we were in compliance with all covenants.

 

In October 2014, we amended our Unsecured Credit Agreement increasing the commitment to $400,000,000 with the opportunity to increase the credit amount up to a total of $600,000,000.  Additionally, the drawn pricing was decreased by 25 basis points. Based on our leverage at September 30, 2014, the amended facility provides for interest annually at LIBOR plus 125 basis points and an unused commitment fee of 30 basis points. The maturity of the facility was extended to October 14, 2018 with a one-year extension at our discretion, subject to customary conditions. Also, in October 2014, we borrowed $9,000,000 and repaid $4,500,000 under our Unsecured Credit Agreement. Accordingly, we have $24,000,000 outstanding and $376,000,000 available for borrowing.

 

Senior Unsecured Notes.  At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, we had $281,633,000 and $255,800,000, respectively, outstanding under our Senior Unsecured Notes with a weighted average interest rate of 4.8%. During the three months ended September 30, 2014, we sold $30,000,000 senior unsecured term notes to affiliates and managed accounts of Prudential Investment Management, Inc. under our Amended and Restated Note Purchase and Private Shelf agreement. These notes bear interest at 4.5% and will mature on July 31, 2026. We used the proceeds to pay down our unsecured revolving line of credit. As a result of the sale of $30,000,000 senior unsecured term notes, our Amended and Restate Note Purchase and Private Shelf agreement has been exhausted with no more availability. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we paid $4,167,000 in regularly scheduled principal payments.

 

Bonds Payable.  At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, we had outstanding principal of $1,400,000 and $2,035,000 respectively, on multifamily tax-exempt revenue bonds that are secured by five assisted living properties in Washington.  These bonds bear interest at a variable rate that is reset weekly and mature during 2015.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the weighted average interest rate, including letter of credit fees, on the outstanding bonds was 3.3%.  During the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, we paid $635,000 and $600,000, respectively, in regularly scheduled principal payments.   In November 2014, we paid off these bonds at par.

Preferred Stock.  At September 30, 2014, we had 2,000,000 shares of our 8.5% Series C Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock (or Series C preferred stock) outstanding.  Our Series C preferred stock is convertible into 2,000,000 shares of our common stock at $19.25 per share.  Total shares reserved for issuance of common stock related to the conversion of Series C preferred stock were 2,000,000 shares at September 30, 2014.

 

Common Stock.  During the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, we acquired 200 shares and 600 shares, respectively, of common stock held by employees who tendered owned shares to satisfy tax withholding obligations. During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, we sold 4,025,000 shares of common stock at a price of $44.50 per share, before fees and costs of $7,748,000, in a public offering.  The net proceeds of $171,365,000 were used to pay down amounts outstanding under our Unsecured Credit Agreement, to fund our current development commitments and general corporate purposes.

 

We had an equity distribution agreement which allowed us to issue and sell, from time to time, up to $85,686,000 in aggregate offering price of our common shares.  Sales of common shares were made by means of ordinary brokers’ transactions at market prices, in block transactions, or as otherwise agreed between us and our sales agents. During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, we sold 126,742 shares of common stock for $4,895,000 in net proceeds under our equity distribution agreement. In conjunction with the sale of common stock, during 2013, we reclassified $662,000 of accumulated costs associated with the equity distribution agreement as a reduction to additional paid in capital.

 

Available Shelf Registrations.  On July 19, 2013, we filed a Form S-3ASR “shelf” registration statement to replace our prior shelf registration statement.  This current shelf registration statement provides us with the capacity to offer up to $800,000,000 in common stock, preferred stock, warrants, debt, depositary shares, or units.  We may from time to time raise capital under this current shelf registration in amounts, at prices, and on terms to be announced when and if the securities are offered. The specifics of any future offerings, along with the use of proceeds of any securities offered, will be described in detail in a prospectus supplement, or other offering materials, at the time of the offering.

 

Non-controlling Interests. We currently have no limited partners. During 2012, we had one limited partnership. The limited partnership agreement allowed the limited partners to convert, on a one-for-one basis, their limited partnership units into shares of common stock or the cash equivalent, at our option. Since we exercised control, we consolidated the limited partnership and we carried the non-controlling interests at cost. During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, we paid $7,000 of accrued distributions to our former limited partners.

Compensation expense related to the vesting of stock options for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $4,000 and $9,000. We did not record compensation expense related to the vesting of stock options for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

At September 30, 2014, we had 240,381 restricted common shares outstanding. The total number of restricted common shares that are scheduled to vest through December 31, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 is 33,713; 110,211; 66,726 and 29,731, respectively.  We have no restricted common stock that are scheduled to vest beyond 2017. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, we recognized $873,000 and $2,317,000, respectively, of compensation expense related to the vesting of restricted common stock. The remaining compensation expense to be recognized related to the future service period of unvested outstanding restricted common stock for 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 is $873,000; $2,484,000; $1,262,000 and $190,000, respectively.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, we accelerated the vesting of 18,180 shares of restricted common stock due to the retirement of our former Senior Vice President, Marketing and Strategic Planning. Accordingly, we recorded $457,000 of compensation expense related to the accelerated vesting. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, we recognized $542,000 and $2,050,000, respectively, of compensation expense related to the vesting of restricted common stock.

 

6.                                    Commitments and Contingencies

 

At September 30, 2014, we had commitments totaling $60,325,000 to develop, re-develop, renovate or expand senior housing and long-term health care properties. As of September 30, 2014, we have funded $41,586,000 under these commitments and we have a remaining commitment of $18,739,000. In October 2014, we funded $4,485,000 under investment commitments. Accordingly, we have a remaining commitment of $14,254,000. We also have a commitment to provide, under certain conditions, up to $5,000,000 per year through December 2014 to an existing operator for expansion of the 37 properties they lease from us. See Note 2. Real Estate Investments for further discussion of these commitments.

 

Additionally at September 30, 2014, we have a commitment to provide an existing borrower $12,000,000 for capital improvements. As of September 30, 2014, we funded $1,512,000 under the capital improvement commitment and we have a remaining commitment of $10,487,000. We also provided this borrower a commitment to borrow up to an additional $40,000,000 of loan proceeds under certain conditions and based on certain operating metrics and valuation thresholds. Since these conditions have not been met, no funding has been made under this additional loan commitment. See Note 2. Real Estate Investments for further discussion of these commitments.

 

At September 30, 2014, we committed to provide $2,963,000 under loans and line of credit agreements. As of September 30, 2014, we had funded $1,147,000 under these commitments and we have a remaining commitment of $1,816,000. See Note 3. Notes Receivable for further discussion of these commitments.

 

As part of an acquisition in 2011, we committed to provide a contingent payment if certain operational thresholds are met.  The contingent payment was recorded at fair value, which was estimated using a discounted cash flow analysis, and we were accreting the contingent liability to the settlement amount as of the payment date. During the third quarter of 2013, we paid $7,000,000 related to the contingent liability. Accordingly, we have no remaining contingent liability as of September 30, 2014. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, we recorded non-cash interest expense of $36,000 and $256,000, respectively, related to the contingent liability.

We are a party from time to time to various general and professional liability claims and lawsuits asserted against the lessees or borrowers of our properties, which in our opinion are not singularly or in the aggregate material to our results of operations or financial condition. These types of claims and lawsuits may include matters involving general or professional liability, which we believe under applicable legal principles are not our responsibility as a non-possessory landlord or mortgage holder. We believe that these matters are the responsibility of our lessees and borrowers pursuant to general legal principles and pursuant to insurance and indemnification provisions in the applicable leases or mortgages. We intend to continue to vigorously defend such claims.

 

7.                                    Major Operators

 

We have three operators from each of which we derive over 10% of our combined rental revenue and interest income from mortgage loans.

 

In July 2014, Brookdale Senior Living, Inc. (or Brookdale), parent company of Brookdale Senior Living Communities, Inc. (or Brookdale Communities), merged with Emeritus Corporation. Brookdale Communities leases 37 assisted living properties with a total of 1,709 units owned by us representing approximately 8.4%, or $79,795,000, of our total assets at September 30, 2014 and 12.2% of our combined rental revenue and interest income from mortgage loans recognized for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

 

Prestige Healthcare (or Prestige) is a privately held company and operates 15 skilled nursing properties and two range of care properties that we own or on which we hold a mortgage secured by first trust deeds. These properties consist of a total of 2,176 skilled nursing beds and 93 assisted living units. Additionally, Prestige manages five parcels of land that we own. These assets represent 14.4% or $136,874,000, of our total assets at September 30, 2014 and generated 11.2% of our combined rental revenue and interest income from mortgage loans recognized for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

 

Senior Care Centers, LLC (or Senior Care) is a privately held company. Senior Care leases nine skilled nursing properties with a total of 1,190 beds owned by us representing approximately 10.7%, or $102,290,000, of our total assets at September 30, 2014 and generated 10.5% of our combined rental revenue and interest income from mortgage loans recognized for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

 

Our master leases with affiliates of Extendicare, Inc. (or Extendicare) and Enlivant (formerly known as Assisted Living Concepts, LLC (or ALC)) covering 37 assisted living properties with a total of 1,429 units will expire on December 31, 2014. In 2013, ALC merged with Aid Holdings, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (or Aid Holdings), and Aid Merger Sub, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly owned subsidiary of Aid Holdings (or Aid Merger Sub). Aid Holdings and Aid Merger Sub are affiliates of TPG Capital, L.P. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, this portfolio generated approximately $8,223,000 or 9.4% of our combined rental revenue and interest income from mortgage loans. In October 2014, we entered into three agreements relating to the 37 assisted living properties as follows:

 

·     We will sell 16 properties, consisting of 615 units located in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Arizona to an affiliate of Enlivant for a sales price of $26,465,000. Accordingly, we expect to record a gain on sale of approximately $3,909,000 with closing expected to occur in December 2014. Additionally, we gave Enlivant consent to close a property located in Oregon. We are currently exploring sale and lease options for this property which has a net book value of $954,000.

 

·     We will add 13 properties with 500 units in Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Nebraska and New Jersey to an existing master lease with an affiliate of Senior Lifestyle (or Senior Lifestyle). Beginning January 1, 2015 the initial term of the amended and restated master lease will be 15 years and rent will increase by $5,100,000 over the current annual rent increasing annually by 2.6%.

 

·     We re-leased seven properties with 278 units in Texas to Veritas InCare (or Veritas) under a new 10-year master lease. Beginning January 1, 2015 the initial rent will be $1,461,000 increasing 2.5% annually.

Extendicare and Enlivant are obligated to pay rent in accordance with the terms of the current master leases through December 31, 2014. The initial cash yield on the 20 properties re-leased to Senior Lifestyle and Veritas is comparable to the cash yield in 2014 under the expiring master leases with Extendicare and Enlivant. Additionally, the new and amended master leases will provide us with the potential for additional rent attributable to participation in revenue growth at the properties over a predetermined base amount.

 

Our financial position and ability to make distributions may be adversely affected by financial difficulties experienced by Brookdale Communities, Prestige Healthcare, Senior Care, or any of our lessees and borrowers, including any bankruptcies, inability to emerge from bankruptcy, insolvency or general downturn in business of any such operator, or in the event any such operator does not renew and/or extend its relationship with us or our borrowers when it expires.

9.                                    Fair Value Measurements

 

In accordance with the accounting guidance regarding the fair value option for financial assets and financial liabilities, entities are permitted to choose to measure certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value, with the change in unrealized gains and losses reported in earnings.  We have not elected fair market value option for our financial assets and financial liabilities.

 

The carrying amount of cash and cash equivalents approximates fair value because of the short-term maturity of these instruments.  We do not invest our cash in auction rate securities.  The carrying value and fair value of our financial instruments as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 assuming election of fair value for our financial assets and financial liabilities were as follows (in thousands):

(1)              Our investment in mortgage loans receivable is classified as Level 3.  The fair value is determined using a widely accepted valuation technique, discounted cash flow analysis on the expected cash flows.  The discount rate is determined using our assumption on market conditions adjusted for market and credit risk and current returns on our investments.  The discount rate used to value our future cash inflows of the mortgage loans receivable at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was 8.3% and 8.4%, respectively.

 

(2)              Our bonds payable and bank borrowings are at a variable interest rate.  The estimated fair value of our bonds payable and bank borrowings approximated their carrying values at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 based upon prevailing market interest rates for similar debt arrangements.

 

(3)              Our obligation under our senior unsecured notes is classified as Level 3 and thus the fair value is determined using a widely accepted valuation technique, discounted cash flow analysis on the expected cash flows.  The discount rate is measured based upon management’s estimates of rates currently prevailing for comparable loans available to us, and instruments of comparable maturities.  At September 30, 2014, the discount rate used to value our future cash outflow of our senior unsecured notes was 3.95% for those maturing before year 2020 and 4.80% for those maturing beyond year 2020. At December 31, 2013, the discount rate used to value our future cash outflow of our senior unsecured notes was 3.95% for those maturing before year 2020 and 4.25% for those maturing beyond year 2020.

 

 

10.                            Subsequent Events

 

Subsequent to September 30, 2014 the following events occurred.

 

Real Estate – Owned Properties: We funded $4,485,000 under ongoing commitments to develop, redevelop, renovate, and expand real estate properties. Accordingly, we have remaining commitments of $14,254,000. See Note 2. Real Estate Investments for further discussion on these commitments.

 

In October 2014, we purchased a parcel of land in Illinois for $1,400,000 and entered into a development commitment to construct a 66-unit free-standing memory care property. The commitment totals $12,248,000, including the land, and was made pursuant to a pipeline agreement and master lease with an existing operator. Rent, at an initial annual rate of 9.30%, will commence upon completion of construction (but no later than December 31, 2016) and be calculated based on the land purchase price and construction costs funded.

Real Estate – Mortgage Loans: In October 2014, a closed skilled nursing property, which secures a $10,600,000 mortgage and construction loan, was sold by the borrower and released as collateral per the terms of the mortgage and construction loan. See Note 2. Real Estate Investments for further discussion on this mortgage and construction loan.

 

Debt Obligations:  We amended our Unsecured Credit Agreement increasing the commitment to $400,000,000 with the opportunity to increase the credit amount up to a total of $600,000,000.  Additionally, the pricing grid decreased by 25 basis points. The maturity of the facility was extended to October 14, 2018 with a one-year extension at our discretion, subject to customary conditions. In October 2014, we borrowed $9,000,000 and repaid $4,500,000 under our Unsecured Credit Agreement. Accordingly, we have $24,000,000 outstanding and $376,000,000 available for borrowing. In November 2014, we redeemed a $1,400,000 multifamily tax-exempt revenue bonds that were secured by five assisted living properties in Washington. See Note 4. Debt Obligations for further discussion.

 

 Equity:  We declared a monthly cash dividend of $0.17 per share on our common stock for the months of October, November and December, payable on October 31, November 28, and December 31, 2014, respectively, to stockholders of record on October 23, November 20, and December 23, 2014, respectively.

 

Major Operators: In October 2014, we entered into agreements to re-lease 20 properties, sell 16 properties and consent to the closure of one property currently leased to affiliates of Extendicare and Enlivant under master leases that expire on December 31, 2014. See Note 7. Major Operators for further discussion.

Executive Overview

 

Business

 

We are a self-administered health care real estate investment trust (or REIT) that invests primarily in senior housing and long-term health care properties through acquisitions, development, mortgage loans and other investments. We conduct and manage our business as one operating segment, rather than multiple operating segments, for internal reporting and internal decision making purposes. Our primary objectives are to create, sustain and enhance stockholder equity value and provide current income for distribution to stockholders through real estate investments in senior housing and long-term health care properties managed by experienced operators. Our primary senior housing and long-term health care property types include skilled nursing properties (or SNF), assisted living properties (or ALF), independent living properties (or ILF), memory care properties (or MC) and combinations thereof. ALF, ILF, MC, and combinations thereof are included in the ALF property type. Range of care properties (or ROC) property type consists of properties providing skilled nursing and any combination of assisted living, independent living and/or memory care services.  As of September 30, 2014, senior housing and long-term health care properties comprised approximately 99% of our investment portfolio.  We have been operating since August 1992.

(6)                Includes a mortgage and construction loan secured by a closed skilled nursing property and a newly constructed 106-bed replacement property. In October 2014, the closed skilled nursing property was sold by the borrower and released as collateral per the terms of the mortgage and construction loan.

(7)                Includes two MC developments with a total of 108 units, a combination ALF and MC development with 80 units, and a SNF development with 143 beds.

(8)                Includes one school property and five parcels of land held-for-use.

 

As of September 30, 2014 we had $902.7 million in carrying value of net real estate investments, consisting of $731.4 million or 81.0% invested in owned and leased properties and $171.3 million or 19.0% invested in mortgage loans secured by first mortgages.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, rental income and interest income from mortgage loans represented 85.5% and 14.1%, respectively, of total gross revenues. In most instances, our lease structure contains fixed annual rental escalations, which are generally recognized on a straight-line basis over the minimum lease period. Certain leases have annual rental escalations that are contingent upon changes in the Consumer Price Index and/or changes in the gross operating revenues of the property.  This revenue is not recognized until the appropriate contingencies have been resolved.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we recorded $1.9 million in straight-line rental income and $18,000 of straight-line rent receivable reserve. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we received $74.0 million of cash rental revenue and recorded amortization of lease inducement cost of $0.6 million.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, no leases were renewed.  At September 30, 2014, the straight-line rent receivable balance, net of reserves, on the balance sheet was $31.6 million.

 

Our primary objectives are to create, sustain and enhance stockholder equity value and provide current income for distribution to stockholders through real estate investments in senior housing and long-term health care properties managed by experienced operators or in investments secured by health care related real estate assets. To meet these objectives, we attempt to make investments that provide opportunity for additional value and current returns to our stockholders and diversify our investment portfolio by geographic location, operator, property type and form of investment.  We opportunistically consider investments in health care facilities in related businesses where the business model is similar to our existing model and the opportunity provides an attractive expected return.  Consistent with this strategy, we pursue, from time to time, opportunities for potential acquisitions and investments, with due diligence and negotiations often at different stages of development at any particular time.

 

·                 With respect to skilled nursing properties, a primary component of our strategy is to invest in new or modernized properties operated by experienced, regionally-based operators demonstrating established relationships with local health care systems and managed care provider networks.  We prefer to invest in a property that has significant market presence in its community and where state certificate of need and/or licensing procedures limit the entry of competing properties.

·                 For assisted living and independent living investments we have attempted to diversify our portfolio both geographically and across product levels.

 

·                 Memory care facilities offer specialized options for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.  Purpose built, free-standing memory care facilities offer an attractive alternative for private-pay residents affected by memory loss in comparison to other accommodations that typically have been provided within a secured unit of an assisted living or skilled nursing facility. These facilities offer dedicated care and specialized programming for various conditions relating to memory loss in a secured environment that is typically smaller in scale and more residential in nature than traditional assisted living facilities.  Residents require a higher level of care and more assistance with activities of daily living than in assisted living facilities.  Therefore, these facilities have staff available 24 hours a day to respond to the unique needs of their residents.

 

Substantially all of our revenues and sources of cash flows from operations are derived from operating lease rentals and interest earned on outstanding loans receivable.  Our investments in owned properties and mortgage loans represent our primary source of liquidity to fund distributions and are dependent upon the performance of the operators on their lease and loan obligations and the rates earned thereon.  To the extent that the operators experience operating difficulties and are unable to generate sufficient cash to make payments to us, there could be a material adverse impact on our consolidated results of operations, liquidity and/or financial condition.  To mitigate this risk, we monitor our investments through a variety of methods determined by the type of health care facility and operator.  Our monitoring process includes periodic review of financial statements for each facility, periodic review of operator credit, scheduled property inspections and review of covenant compliance.

 

In addition to our monitoring and research efforts, we also structure our investments to help mitigate payment risk.  Some operating leases and loans are credit enhanced by guaranties and/or letters of credit.  In addition, operating leases are typically structured as master leases and loans are generally cross-defaulted and cross-collateralized with other loans, operating leases or agreements between us and the operator and its affiliates.

 

Depending upon the availability and cost of external capital, we anticipate making additional investments in health care related properties and health care related securities and/or ventures.  New investments are generally funded from cash on hand, temporary borrowings under our unsecured revolving line of credit and internally generated cash flows.  Our investments generate internal cash from rent and interest receipts and principal payments on mortgage loans receivable.  Permanent financing for future investments, which replaces funds drawn under our unsecured revolving line of credit, is expected to be provided through a combination of public and private offerings of debt and equity securities and secured and unsecured debt financing.  The timing, source and amount of cash flows provided by financing activities and used in investing activities are sensitive to the capital markets environment, especially to changes in interest rates.  Changes in the capital markets’ environment may impact the availability of cost-effective capital.

 

We believe our business model has enabled and will continue to enable us to maintain the integrity of our property investments, including in response to financial difficulties that may be experienced by operators.  Traditionally, we have taken a conservative approach to managing our business, choosing to maintain liquidity and exercise patience until favorable investment opportunities arise.

 

At September 30, 2014, we had $7.6 million of cash on hand and the potential ability to access the capital markets through the issuance of debt and/or equity securities under our $800.0 million effective shelf registration statement. Subsequent to September 30, 2014, we amended our unsecured revolving line of credit agreement increasing the commitment to $400.0 million with the opportunity to increase the credit amount up to a total of $600.0 million. Additionally, subsequent to September 30, 2014, we borrowed $9.0 million and repaid $4.5 million under our unsecured revolving line of credit. Accordingly we have $24.0 million outstanding and $376.0 million available for borrowing. As a result, we believe our liquidity and various sources of available capital are sufficient to fund operations and development commitments, meet debt service obligations (both principal and interest), make dividend distributions and finance some future investments should we determine such future investments are financially feasible.

Health Care Regulatory Climate

 

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (or CMS) annually updates Medicare skilled nursing facility prospective payment system rates and other policies. CMS published the final fiscal year 2015 Medicare skilled nursing facility payment update on August 5, 2014. Under the final rule, Medicare rates will be updated by 2%, based on a 2.5% market basket increase that is reduced by a 0.5 percentage point multifactor productivity adjustment (described below).  CMS estimates that the final rule will increase aggregate Medicare payments to skilled nursing facilities by $750 million. There can be no assurance that future regulations modifying Medicare skilled nursing facility payment rates will not have an adverse effect on the financial condition of our borrowers and lessees which could, in turn, adversely impact the timing or level of their payments to us.

 

In March 2010, the President signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which subsequently was amended by the Health Care and Education and Reconciliation Act of 2010 (collectively referred to as the “Affordable Care Act”).  The Affordable Care Act is designed to expand access to affordable health insurance, contain health care costs, and institute a variety of health policy reforms.  The provisions of the sweeping law may affect us directly, as well as impact our lessees and borrowers.  While certain provisions, such as expanding the insured population, may positively impact the revenues of our lessees and borrowers, other provisions, particularly those intended to reduce federal health care spending, could have a negative impact on our lessees and borrowers.  Among other things, the Affordable Care Act:  reduces Medicare skilled nursing facility reimbursement by a so-called “multifactor productivity adjustment” based on economy-wide productivity gains; requires the development of a value-based purchasing program for Medicare skilled nursing facility services; establishes a national voluntary pilot program to bundle Medicare payments for hospital and post-acute services that could lead to changes in the delivery of post-acute services; and provides incentives to state Medicaid programs to promote community-based care as an alternative to institutional long-term health care services.  The Affordable Care Act also includes provisions intended to expand public disclosure about nursing home ownership and operations, institute mandatory compliance and quality assurance programs, increase penalties for noncompliance, and expand fraud and abuse enforcement and penalty provisions that could impact our operators.  In addition, the Affordable Care Act impacts both us and our lessees and borrowers as employers, including new requirements related to the health insurance we offer to our respective employees.  Many aspects of the Affordable Care Act are being implemented through new regulations and subregulatory guidance. We cannot predict at this time what effect, if any, the various provisions of the Affordable Care Act will have on our lessees and borrowers or our business when fully implemented. There can be no assurances, however, that the Affordable Care Act will not adversely impact the operations, cash flows or financial condition of our lessees and borrowers, which subsequently could materially adversely impact our revenue and operations.

 

Under the terms of the Budget Control Act of 2011, as modified by the American Taxpayer Relief Act, President Obama issued a sequestration order on March 1, 2013 that mandates a 2% cut to Medicare payments to providers and health plans. The cuts generally apply to Medicare fee-for-service claims with dates-of-service or dates-of-discharge on or after April 1, 2013. As amended by subsequent legislation, the Medicare sequestration cuts are currently scheduled to be applied through fiscal year 2024, although Congress and the Administration could enact legislation to end or modify sequestration at any time. On April 1, 2014, President Obama signed into law H.R. 4302, the “Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014.”  Among other things, the Protecting Access to Medicare Act requires the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to develop a skilled nursing facility “value-based purchasing program,” which will tie Medicare payments to skilled nursing facilities to their performance on certain new readmissions measures, applicable to services furnished beginning October 1, 2018. On September 18, 2014, Congress approved H.R. 4994, the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act of 2014 (the “IMPACT Act”). This bill would require the collection of standardized post-acute care assessment data, which eventually could be used as the basis for developing changes to Medicare post-acute care reimbursement policy. Congress and the Administration also could consider other legislation that would have the impact of

reducing Medicare reimbursement for skilled nursing facilities and other Medicare providers, encouraging home and community-based long term care services as an alternative to institutional settings, or otherwise reforming payment policy for post-acute care services. There can be no assurances that enacted or future budget control mechanisms will not have an adverse impact on the financial condition of our borrowers and lessees, which subsequently could materially adversely impact our company.

 

Additional reforms affecting the payment for and availability of health care services have been proposed at the state level and adopted by certain states. Increasingly state Medicaid programs are providing coverage through managed care programs under contracts with private health plans, which is intended to decrease state Medicaid costs. Congress and state legislatures can be expected to continue to review and assess alternative health care delivery systems and payment methodologies. Changes in the law, new interpretations of existing laws, or changes in payment methodologies may have a dramatic effect on the definition of permissible or impermissible activities, the relative costs associated with doing business and the amount of reimbursement by the government and other third party payors.

 

Key Performance Indicators, Trends and Uncertainties

 

We utilize several key performance indicators to evaluate the various aspects of our business.  These indicators are discussed below and relate to concentration risk and credit strength.  Management uses these key performance indicators to facilitate internal and external comparisons to our historical operating results in making operating decisions and for budget planning purposes.

 

Concentration Risk.  We evaluate by gross investment our concentration risk in terms of asset mix, investment mix, operator mix and geographic mix.  Concentration risk is valuable to understand what portion of our investments could be at risk if certain sectors were to experience downturns. Asset mix measures the portion of our investments that are real property or mortgage loans.  In order to qualify as an equity REIT, at least 75 percent of our total assets must be represented by real estate assets, cash, cash items and government securities.  Investment mix measures the portion of our investments that relate to our various property types.  Operator mix measures the portion of our investments that relate to our top five operators.  Geographic mix measures the portion of our investment that relate to our top five states.

(1)                During the second quarter of 2014, we sold a school property. During the third quarter of 2014, we purchased a parcel of land. Accordingly, we had one school property and five parcels of land located adjacent to properties securing the Prestige Healthcare mortgage loan and are managed by Prestige Healthcare as of September 30, 2014.

 

(2)                During the fourth quarter of 2013, we funded a $124,387 mortgage loan with Prestige Healthcare secured by 15 skilled nursing properties with a total of 2,058 beds in Michigan. Additionally, during the fourth quarter of 2013, we purchased four parcels of land located adjacent to properties securing this mortgage loan. During the third quarter of 2014, we purchased another parcel parcel of land located adjacent to a property securing this mortgage loan. These land parcels are managed by Prestige Healthcare.

 

(3)                During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we completed the construction of a 60-unit memory care property. Accordingly, this property was reclassified from “Under development” to “Assisted living property” for all periods presented.

 

(4)                In July 2014, Brookdale Senior Living, Inc., parent company of Brookdale Senior Living Communities, Inc. (or Brookdale Communities) merged with Emeritus Corporation (or Emeritus). Prior to the merger, Emeritus operated two assisted living properties under a master lease. These properties were reclassified into Brookdale Communities for all periods presented.

 

(5)                During the second quarter of 2014, we sold two assisted living properties located in Florida and Georgia.

Our master leases with affiliates of Extendicare and Enlivant covering 37 assisted living properties will expire on December 31, 2014.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, this portfolio generated approximately $8.2 million or 9.4% of our combined rental revenue and interest income from mortgage loans. In October 2014, we entered into three agreements relating to the 37 assisted living properties as follows:

 

·    We will sell 16 properties, consisting of 615 units located in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Arizona to an affiliate of Enlivant for a sales price of $26.5 million. Accordingly, we expect to record a gain on sale of approximately $3.9 million with closing expected to occur in December 2014. Additionally, we gave Enlivant consent to close a property located in Oregon. We are currently exploring sale and lease options for this property which has a net book value of $1.0 million.

 

·    We will add 13 properties with 500 units in Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Nebraska and New Jersey to an existing master lease with an affiliate of Senior Lifestyle (or Senior Lifestyle). Beginning January 1, 2015 the initial term of the amended and restated master lease will be 15 years and rent will increase by $5.1 million over the current annual rent increasing annually by 2.6%.

 

·    We re-leased seven properties with 278 units in Texas to Veritas InCare (or Veritas) under a new 10-year master lease. Beginning January 1, 2015 the initial rent will be $1.5 million increasing 2.5% annually.

 

Extendicare and Enlivant are obligated to pay rent in accordance with the terms of the current master leases through December 31, 2014. The initial cash yield on the 20 properties re-leased to Senior Lifestyle and Veritas is comparable to the cash yield in 2014 under the expiring master leases with Extendicare and Enlivant. Additionally, the new and amended master leases will provide us with the potential for additional rent attributable to participation in revenue growth at the properties over a predetermined base amount.

 

Credit Strength.  We measure our credit strength both in terms of leverage ratios and coverage ratios.  Our leverage ratios include debt to gross asset value and debt to market capitalization.  The leverage ratios indicate how much of our consolidated balance sheet capitalization is related to long term obligations.  Our coverage ratios include interest coverage ratio and fixed charge coverage ratio.  The coverage ratios indicate our ability to service interest and fixed charges (interest plus preferred dividends).  The coverage ratios are based on adjusted earnings before gain on sale of real estate, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (or Adjusted EBITDA).  Leverage ratios and coverage ratios are widely used by investors, analysts and rating agencies in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies.  The following table reflects the recent historical trends for our credit strength measures:

(2)              Decrease primarily due to the increase in market capitalization.

(3)              Increase primarily due to the increase of our unsecured revolving line of credit partially offset by the increase in gross asset value from additional development and capital improvement funding.

(4)              Increase primarily due to the increase in outstanding debt due to the sale of senior unsecured notes partially offset by the increase in gross asset value from origination of a $124.4 million mortgage loan and additional development and capital improvement funding.

(5)              Increase due to the increase in outstanding debt due to the sale of senior unsecured notes.

(6)              Decrease primarily due to the increase in interest expense resulting from the sale of senior unsecured notes.

(7)              In calculating our interest coverage and fixed charge coverage ratios above, we use Adjusted EBITDA, which is a financial measure not derived in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (non-GAAP financial measure). Adjusted EBITDA is not an alternative to net income, operating income or cash flows from operating activities as calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. You should not rely on Adjusted EBITDA as a substitute for any such U.S. GAAP financial measures or consider it in isolation, for the purpose of analyzing our financial performance, financial position or cash flows.  Net income is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted EBITDA.

We evaluate our key performance indicators in conjunction with current expectations to determine if historical trends are indicative of future results. Our expected results may not be achieved and actual results may differ materially from our expectations.  This may be a result of various factors, including, but not limited to

 

·                 The status of the economy;

·                 The status of capital markets, including prevailing interest rates;

·                 Compliance with and changes to regulations and payment policies within the health care industry;

·                 Changes in financing terms;

·                 Competition within the health care and senior housing industries; and

·                 Changes in federal, state and local legislation.

 

Management regularly monitors the economic and other factors listed above.  We develop strategic and tactical plans designed to improve performance and maximize our competitive position. Our ability to achieve our financial objectives is dependent upon our ability to effectively execute these plans and to appropriately respond to emerging economic and company-specific trends.

(6)             Represents the gain on sale of two assisted living properties partially offset by the loss on sale of a school. During 2014, we adopted a new accounting principle which only requires the presentation of discontinued operations if a disposal represents a strategic shift in operations. The new accounting principle is applied prospectively to all disposals subsequent to the adoption. These disposals did not represent strategic shifts in our operations. As a result, we did not reclassify results of operations for these disposed properties.

Funds From Operations

 

Funds from Operations (or FFO) available to common stockholders, basic FFO available to common stockholders per share and diluted FFO available to common stockholders per share are supplemental measures of a REIT’s financial performance that are not defined by U.S. GAAP. Real estate values historically rise and fall with market conditions, but cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with U.S. GAAP assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time.  We believe that by excluding the effect of historical cost depreciation, which may be of limited relevance in evaluating current performance, FFO facilitates comparisons of operating performance between periods.

 

We use FFO as a supplemental performance measurement of our cash flow generated by operations.  FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs and should not be considered an alternative to net income available to common stockholders.

 

We calculate and report FFO in accordance with the definition and interpretive guidelines issued by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (or NAREIT). FFO, as defined by NAREIT, means net income available to common stockholders (computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP) excluding gains or losses on the sale of real estate and impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate plus real estate depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.  Our calculation of FFO may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that have a different interpretation of the current NAREIT definition from us; therefore, caution should be exercised when comparing our FFO to that of other REITs.

 

The following table reconciles net income available to common stockholders to FFO available to common stockholders (unaudited, amounts in thousands, except per share amounts):
