STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Certain statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this “10-Q”) contain “forward-looking” information as that term is defined by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Any statements that do not relate to historical or current facts or matters are forward-looking statements. Examples of forward-looking statements include all statements regarding our expected future financial position, results of operations, cash flows, liquidity, financing plans, business strategy, budgets, the expected amounts and timing of dividends and other distributions, projected expenses and capital expenditures, competitive position, growth opportunities, potential investments, plans and objectives for future operations, and compliance with and changes in governmental regulations. You can identify some of the forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “plan,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “should,” “may” and other similar expressions, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words.
Our actual results may differ materially from those projected or contemplated by our forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including, among others, the following:
our dependence on Genesis Healthcare, Inc. (“Genesis”) and certain wholly owned subsidiaries of Holiday AL Holdings LP (collectively, “Holiday”) until we are able to further diversify our portfolio;
our dependence on the operating success of our tenants;
the significant amount of and our ability to service our indebtedness;
covenants in our debt agreements that may restrict our ability to pay dividends, make investments, incur additional indebtedness and refinance indebtedness on favorable terms;
increases in market interest rates;
changes in foreign currency exchange rates;
our ability to raise capital through equity and debt financings;
the impact of required regulatory approvals of transfers of healthcare properties;
the effect of increasing healthcare regulation and enforcement on our tenants and the dependence of our tenants on reimbursement from governmental and other third-party payors;
the relatively illiquid nature of real estate investments;
competitive conditions in our industry;
the loss of key management personnel or other employees;
the impact of litigation and rising insurance costs on the business of our tenants;
the effect of our tenants declaring bankruptcy or becoming insolvent;
uninsured or underinsured losses affecting our properties and the possibility of environmental compliance costs and liabilities;
the ownership limits and anti-takeover defenses in our governing documents and Maryland law, which may restrict change of control or business combination opportunities;
the impact of a failure or security breach of information technology in our operations;
our ability to find replacement tenants and the impact of unforeseen costs in acquiring new properties;
our ability to maintain our status as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”); and
compliance with REIT requirements and certain tax and tax regulatory matters related to our status as a REIT.
We urge you to carefully consider these risks and review the additional disclosures we make concerning risks and other factors that may materially affect the outcome of our forward-looking statements and our future business and operating results, including those made in Part I, Item 1A, “Risk Factors” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 (our “2015 Annual Report on Form 10-K”), as such risk factors may be amended, supplemented or superseded from time to time by other reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), including subsequent Annual Reports on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. We caution you that any forward-looking statements made in this 10-Q are not guarantees of future performance, events or results, and you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this report. We do not intend, and we undertake no obligation, to update any forward-looking information to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this 10-Q or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, unless required by law to do so.

SABRA HEALTH CARE REIT, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)
 
1.
BUSINESS
Overview
Sabra Health Care REIT, Inc. (“Sabra” or the “Company”) was incorporated on May 10, 2010 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Sun Healthcare Group, Inc. (“Sun”) and commenced operations on November 15, 2010 following Sabra's separation from Sun (the "Separation Date"). Sabra elected to be treated as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) with the filing of its U.S. federal income tax return for the taxable year beginning January 1, 2011. Sabra believes that it has been organized and operated, and it intends to continue to operate, in a manner to qualify as a REIT. Sabra’s primary business consists of acquiring, financing and owning real estate property to be leased to third party tenants in the healthcare sector. Sabra primarily generates revenues by leasing properties to tenants and operators throughout the United States and Canada. Sabra owns substantially all of its assets and properties and conducts its operations through Sabra Health Care Limited Partnership, a Delaware limited partnership (the “Operating Partnership”), of which Sabra is the sole general partner and Sabra's wholly owned subsidiaries are currently the only limited partners, or by subsidiaries of the Operating Partnership. The Company’s investment portfolio is primarily comprised of skilled nursing/transitional care facilities, senior housing facilities, acute care hospitals, investments in loans receivable and preferred equity investments.
2.SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Sabra and its wholly owned subsidiaries as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 and for the periods ended March 31, 2016 and 2015. All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information as contained within the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), including the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for financial statements. In the opinion of management, the financial statements for the unaudited interim periods presented include all adjustments, which are of a normal and recurring nature, necessary for a fair statement of the results for such periods. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2016. For further information, refer to the Company’s consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2015 included in the Company’s 2015 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC.
GAAP requires the Company to identify entities for which control is achieved through voting rights or other means and to determine which business enterprise is the primary beneficiary of variable interest entities (“VIEs”). A VIE is broadly defined as an entity with one or more of the following characteristics: (a) the total equity investment at risk is insufficient to finance the entity's activities without additional subordinated financial support; (b) as a group, the holders of the equity investment at risk lack (i) the ability to make decisions about the entity's activities through voting or similar rights, (ii) the obligation to absorb the expected losses of the entity, or (iii) the right to receive the expected residual returns of the entity; or (c) the equity investors have voting rights that are not proportional to their economic interests, and substantially all of the entity's activities either involve, or are conducted on behalf of, an investor that has disproportionately few voting rights. If the Company were determined to be the primary beneficiary of the VIE, the Company would consolidate investments in the VIE. The Company may change its original assessment of a VIE due to events such as modifications of contractual arrangements that affect the characteristics or adequacy of the entity's equity investments at risk and the disposal of all or a portion of an interest held by the primary beneficiary.
The Company identifies the primary beneficiary of a VIE as the enterprise that has both: (i) the power to direct the activities of the VIE that most significantly impact the entity's economic performance; and (ii) the obligation to absorb losses or the right to receive benefits of the VIE that could be significant to the entity. The Company performs this analysis on an ongoing basis.
As of March 31, 2016, the Company determined it was the primary beneficiary of two senior housing facilities and has

consolidated the operations of the facilities in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements. As of March 31, 2016, the Company determined that operations of the facilities were not material to the Company’s results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.
As it relates to investments in loans, in addition to the Company's assessment of VIEs and whether the Company is the primary beneficiary of those VIEs, the Company evaluates the loan terms and other pertinent facts to determine if the loan investment should be accounted for as a loan or as a real estate joint venture. If an investment has the characteristics of a real estate joint venture, including if the Company participates in the majority of the borrower's expected residual profit, the Company would account for the investment as an investment in a real estate joint venture and not as a loan investment. Expected residual profit is defined as the amount of profit, whether called interest or another name, such as an equity kicker, above a reasonable amount of interest and fees expected to be earned by a lender. At March 31, 2016, none of the Company's investments in loans are accounted for as real estate joint ventures.
As it relates to investments in joint ventures, the Company assesses any limited partners' rights and their impact on the presumption of control of the limited partnership by any single partner. The Company reassesses its determination of which entity controls the joint venture if: there is a change to the terms or in the exercisability of the rights of any partners, the sole general partner increases or decreases its ownership of limited partnership interests, or there is an increase or decrease in the number of outstanding limited partnership interests. The Company also applies this guidance to managing member interests in limited liability companies.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates.
Reclassifications
Certain amounts in the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements for prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. These reclassifications have not changed the results of operations of prior periods. As a result, certain reclassifications were made to the condensed consolidated balance sheets and condensed consolidated statements of (loss) income. As of December 31, 2015, there was $17.3 million of deferred financing costs related to the Company's mortgage notes, term loans and senior unsecured notes that were previously reported within “prepaid expenses, deferred financing costs and other assets, net” that were reclassified in accordance with ASU 2015-03 to their respective debt liability financial statement line items on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards Update
In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-01, Financial Instruments–Overall (Subtopic 825-10) (“ASU 2016-01”).  ASU 2016-01 updates guidance related to recognition and measurement of financial assets and financial liabilities. ASU 2016-01 requires all equity investments to be measured at fair value with changes in the fair value recognized through net income (other than those accounted for under equity method of accounting or those that result in consolidation of the investee). The amendments in ASU 2016-01 also require an entity to present separately in other comprehensive income the portion of the total change in the fair value of a liability resulting from a change in the instrument-specific credit risk when the entity has elected to measure the liability at fair value in accordance with the fair value option for financial instruments. In addition, the amendments in ASU 2016-01 eliminate the requirement to disclose the methods and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value that is required to be disclosed for financial instruments measured at amortized cost on the balance sheet for public business entities. ASU 2016-01 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements when adopted.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (“ASU 2016-02”).  ASU 2016-02 supersedes guidance related to accounting for leases. ASU 2016-02 updates guidance around the recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities by lessees for those leases classified as operating leases under previous GAAP. The objective of ASU 2016-02 is to establish the principles that lessees and lessors shall apply to report useful information to users of financial statements about the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from a lease. ASU 2016-02 does not fundamentally change lessor accounting, however, some changes have been made to lessor accounting to conform and align that guidance with the lessee guidance and other areas within GAAP. ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements when adopted.

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-07, Equity Method and Joint Ventures (Topic 323) (“ASU 2016-07”).  ASU 2016-07 simplifies the accounting for equity method investments. ASU 2016-07 eliminates the requirement in Topic 323 that an entity retroactively adopt the equity method of accounting if an investment qualifies for use of the equity method as a result of an increase in the level of ownership or degree of influence. The amendments require that the equity method investor add the cost of acquiring the additional interest in the investee to the current basis of the investor’s previously held interest and adopt the equity method of accounting as of the date the investment becomes qualified for equity method accounting. ASU 2016-07 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2016, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements when adopted.
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting (“ASU 2016-09”).  ASU 2016-09 simplifies several aspects of the accounting for employee share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statement of cash flows. In addition, the amendments in ASU 2016-09 eliminate the guidance in Topic 718 that was indefinitely deferred shortly after the issuance of FASB Statement No. 123 (revised 2004), Share-Based Payment. ASU 2016-09 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2016, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements when adopted.

Contingent Consideration Arrangements
In connection with four of its real estate acquisitions, the Company entered into contingent consideration arrangements. Under the contingent consideration arrangements, the Company may pay out additional amounts based on incremental value created through the improvement of operations of the acquired facility (a contingent consideration liability) or may be entitled to receive a portion of the original purchase price of the acquired facility if the facility does not meet certain performance hurdles (a contingent consideration asset). The estimated value of the contingent consideration liabilities at the time of purchase was $3.2 million. The estimated value of the contingent consideration asset at the time of purchase was $0. The contingent consideration amounts would be determined based on portfolio performance and the tenant achieving certain performance hurdles during 2016 through 2018. To determine the value of the contingent consideration, the Company used significant inputs not observable in the market to estimate the contingent consideration, made assumptions regarding the probability of the portfolio achieving the incremental value and then applied an appropriate discount rate. As of March 31, 2016, based on the potential future performance of these facilities, the contingent consideration liabilities had an estimated value of $2.7 million and the contingent consideration asset had an estimated value of $0.3 million; these amounts are included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities and prepaid expenses, deferred financing costs and other assets, net, respectively, in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet. During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company did not record any adjustments to its contingent consideration liabilities or asset.
Operating Leases
As of March 31, 2016, all of the Company’s real estate properties were leased under triple-net operating leases with expirations ranging from one to 17 years. As of March 31, 2016, the leases had a weighted-average remaining term of 10 years. The leases include provisions to extend the lease terms and other negotiated terms and conditions. The Company, through its subsidiaries, retains substantially all of the risks and benefits of ownership of the real estate assets leased to the tenants. In addition, the Company may receive additional security under these operating leases in the form of letters of credit and security deposits from the lessee or guarantees from the parent of the lessee. Security deposits received in cash related to tenant leases are included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets and totaled $1.4 million as of March 31, 2016 and $1.3 million as of December 31, 2015. As of March 31, 2016, the Company had a $3.5 million reserve for unpaid cash rents and a $5.5 million reserve associated with accumulated straight-line rental income. As of December 31, 2015, the Company had a $3.5 million reserve for unpaid cash rents and a $5.3 million reserve associated with accumulated straight-line rental income. As of March 31, 2016, the Company's three largest tenants, Genesis, Holiday and NMS Healthcare, represented 33.9%, 16.7% and 10.4%, respectively, of the Company's annualized revenues. Other than these three tenants, none of the Company’s tenants individually represented 10% or more of the Company’s annualized revenues as of March 31, 2016.
The Company monitors the creditworthiness of its tenants by reviewing credit ratings (if available) and evaluating the ability of the tenants to meet their lease obligations to the Company based on the tenants’ financial performance, including the evaluation of any parent guarantees (or the guarantees of other related parties) of tenant lease obligations. Because formal credit ratings may not be available for most of the Company’s tenants, the primary basis for the Company’s evaluation of the credit quality of its tenants (and more specifically the tenants’ ability to pay their rent obligations to the Company) is the tenants’ lease coverage ratios. These coverage ratios include earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and rent (“EBITDAR”) to rent and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, rent and management fees (“EBITDARM”) to rent at the facility level and consolidated EBITDAR to total fixed charges at the parent guarantor level when such a guarantee exists. The Company obtains various financial and operational information from its tenants each month and reviews this information in conjunction with the above-described coverage metrics to identify financial and operational trends, evaluate the impact of the industry's operational and financial environment (including the impact of government reimbursement), and evaluate the management of the tenant’s operations. These metrics help the Company identify potential areas of concern relative to its tenants’ credit quality and ultimately the tenants’ ability to generate sufficient liquidity to meet its obligations, including its obligation to continue to pay the rent due to the Company.

ASSETS HELD FOR SALE AND DISPOSITIONS
Asset Held for Sale
As of March 31, 2016, the Company determined that one acute care hospital met the criteria to be classified as held for sale. As a result of this determination, the Company adjusted the net book value of this investment to its fair value less costs to sell of $75.1 million, resulting in an impairment loss of $29.8 million
Dispositions
During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company completed the sale of one skilled nursing facility for consideration of $0.4 million after selling expenses of $0.1 million. The carrying value of the assets and liabilities of this facility was $5.0 million, which resulted in a $4.6 million loss. The Company sold no facilities during the three months ended March 31, 2015.
During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, the Company recognized $(1.2) million (excluding the loss on sale and real estate impairment charge) and $1.0 million of net (loss) income, respectively, from these facilities. Neither the determination of the held for sale classification nor the sale of the facility above represent a strategic shift that has or will have a major effect on the Company's operations and financial results and therefore the results of operations attributable to these facilities have remained in continuing operations.

The 2021 Notes and the 2023 Notes (collectively, the “Senior Notes”) were issued by the Operating Partnership and Sabra Capital Corporation, wholly owned subsidiaries of the Company (the “Issuers”). The 2021 Notes accrue interest at a rate of 5.5% per annum payable semiannually on February 1 and August 1 of each year and the 2023 Notes accrue interest at a rate of 5.375% per annum payable semiannually on June 1 and December 1 of each year.
The obligations under the Senior Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed, jointly and severally, on an unsecured basis, by Sabra and certain of Sabra’s other existing and, subject to certain exceptions, future material subsidiaries; provided, however, that such guarantees are subject to release under certain customary circumstances.  See Note 11, “Summarized Condensed Consolidating Information” for additional information concerning the circumstances pursuant to which the guarantors will be automatically and unconditionally released from their obligations under the guarantees.
The indentures governing the Senior Notes (the “Senior Notes Indentures”) include customary events of default and require us to comply with specified restrictive covenants. As of March 31, 2016, the Company was in compliance with all applicable financial covenants under the Senior Notes Indentures.
Revolving Credit Facility and Term Loans
On September 10, 2014, the Operating Partnership entered into an unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Prior Revolving Credit Facility”) that provided for a borrowing capacity of $650.0 million and provided an accordion feature allowing for an additional $100.0 million of capacity, subject to terms and conditions. On October 10, 2014, the Operating Partnership converted $200.0 million of the outstanding borrowings under the Prior Revolving Credit Facility to a term loan. Concurrent with the term loan conversion, the Company entered into a five-year interest rate cap contract that caps LIBOR at 2.0%.
Borrowings under the Prior Revolving Credit Facility bore interest on the outstanding principal amount at a rate equal to an applicable percentage plus, at the Operating Partnership's option, either (a) LIBOR or (b) a base rate determined as the greater of (i) the federal funds rate plus 0.5%, (ii) the prime rate, and (iii) one-month LIBOR plus 1.0% (referred to as the “Base Rate”). The applicable percentage for borrowings varied based on the Consolidated Leverage Ratio, as defined in the credit agreement for the Prior Revolving Credit Facility, and ranged from 2.00% to 2.60% per annum for LIBOR based borrowings and 1.00% to 1.60% per annum for borrowings at the Base Rate. As of December 31, 2015, the interest rate on the Prior Revolving Credit Facility was 3.03%. In addition, the Operating Partnership was required to pay an unused fee to the lenders equal to 0.25% or 0.35% per annum based on the amount of unused borrowings under the Prior Revolving Credit Facility.
On June 10, 2015, Sabra Canadian Holdings, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, entered into a new Canadian dollar denominated term loan of CAD $90.0 million (U.S. $73.2 million) (the "Prior Canadian Term Loan") that bore a variable interest rate of the Canadian Dollar Offer Rate (“CDOR”) plus 2.00%-2.60% depending on the Company's consolidated leverage ratio. Concurrently with entering into the Prior Canadian Term Loan, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement to fix the CDOR portion of the interest rate for this term loan at 1.59%. In addition, the Prior Canadian Term Loan was designated as a net investment hedge (see Note 7, “Derivative and Hedging Instruments” for further information).
On January 14, 2016, the Operating Partnership and Sabra Canadian Holdings, LLC (together, the “Borrowers”), entered into a third amended and restated unsecured credit facility (the “Credit Facility”). The Credit Facility amends and restates the a Prior Revolving Credit Facility and replaces the Prior Canadian Term Loan.


14


The Credit Facility includes a revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”) and U.S. dollar and Canadian dollar term loans (collectively, the “Term Loans”). The Revolving Credit Facility provides for a borrowing capacity of $500.0 million and, in addition, increases the Company's U.S. dollar and Canadian dollar term loans to $245.0 million and CAD $125.0 million, respectively. Further, up to $125.0 million of the Revolving Credit Facility may be used for borrowings in certain foreign currencies. The Credit Facility also contains an accordion feature that can increase the total available borrowings to $1.25 billion, subject to terms and conditions. In addition, the Canadian dollar term loan was re-designated as a net investment hedge (see Note 7, “Derivative and Hedging Instruments” for further information).

The Revolving Credit Facility has a maturity date of January 14, 2020, and includes two six-month extension options. The Term Loans have a maturity date of January 14, 2021.

As of March 31, 2016, there was $198.0 million outstanding under the Revolving Credit Facility and $302.0 million available for borrowing.
Borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility bear interest on the outstanding principal amount at a rate equal to an applicable percentage plus, at the Operating Partnership's option, either (a) LIBOR or (b) a base rate determined as the greater of (i) the federal funds rate plus 0.5%, (ii) the prime rate, and (iii) one-month LIBOR plus 1.0% (the "Base Rate"). The applicable percentage for borrowings will vary based on the Consolidated Leverage Ratio, as defined in the credit agreement, and will range from 1.80% to 2.40% per annum for LIBOR based borrowings and 0.80% to 1.40% per annum for borrowings at the Base Rate. As of March 31, 2016, the interest rate on the Revolving Credit Facility was 2.84%. In addition, the Operating Partnership pays an unused facility fee to the lenders equal to 0.25% or 0.30% per annum, which is determined by usage under the Revolving Credit Facility. During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company incurred $1.5 million in interest expense on amounts outstanding under the Revolving Credit Facility and $0.2 million of unused facility fees.
    
The U.S. dollar term loan bears interest on the outstanding principal amount at a rate equal to an applicable percentage plus, at the Operating Partnership’s option, either (a) LIBOR or (b) the Base Rate. The applicable percentage for borrowings will vary based on the Consolidated Leverage Ratio, as defined in the credit agreement, and will range from 1.75% to 2.35% per annum for LIBOR based borrowings and 0.75% to 1.35% per annum for borrowings at the Base Rate. The Canadian dollar term loan bears interest on the outstanding principal amount at a rate equal to the Canadian Dollar Offer Rate (“CDOR”) plus 1.75% to 2.35% depending on the Consolidated Leverage Ratio.

In the event that Sabra achieves investment grade ratings from at least two of S&P, Moody’s and/or Fitch, the Operating Partnership can elect to reduce the applicable percentage for LIBOR or Base Rate borrowings. If the Operating Partnership makes this election, the applicable percentage for borrowings will vary based on the Debt Ratings at each Pricing Level, as defined in the credit agreement, and will range from 0.90% to 1.70% per annum for LIBOR based borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility, 1.00% to 1.95% per annum for LIBOR or CDOR based borrowings under the Term Loans, 0.00% to 0.70% per annum for borrowings at the Base Rate under the Revolving Credit Facility, and 0.00% to 0.95% per annum for borrowings at the Base Rate under the U.S. dollar term loan. In addition, should the Operating Partnership elect this option, the unused fee will no longer apply and a facility fee ranging between 0.125% and 0.300% per annum will take effect based on the borrowing capacity regardless of amounts outstanding under the Revolving Credit Facility.
The obligations of the Borrowers under the Credit Facility are guaranteed by Sabra and certain subsidiaries of Sabra.
The Credit Facility contains customary covenants that include restrictions or limitations on the ability to make acquisitions and other investments, pay dividends, incur additional indebtedness, engage in non-healthcare related business activities, enter into transactions with affiliates and sell or otherwise transfer certain assets as well as customary events of default. The Credit Facility also requires Sabra, through the Operating Partnership, to comply with specified financial covenants, which include a maximum leverage ratio, a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio and a minimum tangible net worth requirement. As of March 31, 2016, the Company was in compliance with all applicable financial covenants under the Credit Facility.
Interest Expense
During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, the Company incurred interest expense of $16.9 million and $13.9 million, respectively. Included in interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 was $1.2 million and $1.3 million, respectively, of deferred financing costs amortization. As of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company had $9.5 million and $13.3 million, respectively, of accrued interest included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

DERIVATIVE AND HEDGING INSTRUMENTS
The Company is exposed to various market risks, including the potential loss arising from adverse changes in interest rates and foreign exchange rates. The Company enters into derivative financial instruments to manage exposures that arise from business activities that result in the receipt or payment of future known and uncertain cash amounts, the value of which are determined by interest rates and foreign exchange rates. The Company’s derivative financial instruments are used to manage differences in the amount of the Company’s known or expected cash receipts and its known or expected cash payments principally related to the Company’s investments and borrowings.
Certain of the Company’s foreign operations expose the Company to fluctuations of foreign interest rates and exchange rates. These fluctuations may impact the value in the Company’s functional currency, the U.S. dollar, of the Company’s investment in foreign operations, the cash receipts and payments related to these foreign operations and payments of interest and principal under Canadian dollar denominated debt. The Company enters into derivative financial instruments to protect the value of its foreign investments and fix a portion of the interest payments for certain debt obligations. The Company does not enter into derivatives for speculative purposes.
Cash Flow Hedges
The Company’s objectives in using interest rate derivatives are to add stability to interest expense and to manage its exposure to interest rate movements. To accomplish these objectives, the Company primarily uses interest rate swaps and caps as part of its interest rate risk management strategy. The notional value of the Company's interest rate cap was $200.0 million as of both March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015. The notional value of the Company's interest rate swap was CAD $90.0 million as of both March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 (U.S. $69.4 million and U.S. $64.9 million as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively). Approximately $1.3 million of losses, which are included in accumulated other comprehensive loss, as of March 31, 2016, are expected to be reclassified into earnings in the next 12 months.
Net Investment Hedges
The Company is exposed to fluctuations in foreign exchange rates on investments it holds in Canada. The Company uses cross currency interest rate swaps to hedge its exposure to changes in foreign exchange rates on these foreign investments. The notional value of these contracts were CAD $56.3 million as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 (U.S. $43.4 million and U.S. $40.6 million as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively). The Company also holds a CAD $125.0 million (U.S. $96.4 million as of March 31, 2016) term loan which was designated as a net investment hedge.

Credit-risk-related Contingent Features
The Company has agreements with each of its derivative counterparties that contain a provision where if the Company defaults on any of its indebtedness, including a default where repayment of the indebtedness has not been accelerated by the lender, then the Company could also be declared in default on its derivative obligations.
As of March 31, 2016, the fair value of derivatives in a net liability position, which includes accrued interest but excludes any adjustment for nonperformance risk, related to these agreements was $1.1 million. As of March 31, 2016, the Company has not posted any collateral related to these agreements. If the Company had breached any of these provisions at March 31, 2016, it could have been required to settle its obligations under the agreements at their termination value of $1.1 million.

8.FAIR VALUE DISCLOSURES

The fair value for certain financial instruments is derived using a combination of market quotes, pricing models and other valuation techniques that involve significant management judgment. The price transparency of financial instruments is a key determinant of the degree of judgment involved in determining the fair value of the Company’s financial instruments.

Financial instruments for which actively quoted prices or pricing parameters are available and whose markets contain orderly transactions will generally have a higher degree of price transparency than financial instruments whose markets are inactive or consist of non-orderly trades. The Company evaluates several factors when determining if a market is inactive or when market transactions are not orderly. The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts payable, accrued liabilities and the Credit Facility are reasonable estimates of fair value because of the short-term maturities of these instruments. Fair values for other financial instruments are derived as follows:

Loans receivable: These instruments are presented in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets at their amortized cost and not at fair value. The fair value of the loans receivable were estimated using an internal valuation model that considered the expected cash flows for the loans receivable, the underlying collateral value and other credit enhancements. As such, the Company classifies these instruments as Level 3 inputs.

Preferred equity investments: These instruments are presented in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets at their cost and not at fair value. The fair value of the preferred equity investments were estimated using an internal valuation model that considered the expected future cash flows for the preferred equity investment, the underlying collateral value and other credit enhancements. As such, the Company classifies these instruments as Level 3 inputs.

Derivative instruments: The Company’s derivative instruments are presented at fair value on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. The Company estimates the fair value of derivative instruments, including its interest rate cap, interest rate swap and cross currency swaps, using the assistance of a third party using inputs that are observable in the market, which includes forward yield curves and other relevant information. Although the Company has determined that the majority of the inputs used to value its derivative financial instruments fall within level 2 of the fair value hierarchy, the credit valuation adjustments associated with its derivative financial instruments utilize level 3 inputs, such as estimates of current credit spreads to evaluate the likelihood of default by itself and its counterparties. The Company has assessed the significance of the impact of the credit valuation adjustments on the overall valuation of its derivative positions and has determined that the credit valuation adjustments are not significant to the overall valuation of its derivative financial instruments. As a result, the Company has determined that its derivative financial instruments valuations in their entirety are classified in level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.


18


Senior Notes: These instruments are presented in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets at their outstanding principal balance, net of unamortized deferred financing costs and premiums (discounts) and not at fair value. The fair values of the Senior Notes were determined using third-party market quotes derived from orderly trades. As such, the Company classifies these instruments as Level 2 inputs.

Mortgage indebtedness: These instruments are presented in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets at their outstanding principal balance, net of unamortized deferred financing costs and premiums (discounts) and not at fair value. The fair values of the Company’s mortgage notes payable were estimated using a discounted cash flow analysis based on management’s estimates of current market interest rates for instruments with similar characteristics, including remaining loan term, loan-to-value ratio, type of collateral and other credit enhancements. As such, the Company classifies these instruments as Level 3 inputs.
The following are the face values, carrying amounts and fair values of the Company’s financial instruments as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 whose carrying amounts do not approximate their fair value (in thousands):

Disclosure of the fair value of financial instruments is based on pertinent information available to the Company at the applicable dates and requires a significant amount of judgment. Despite increased capital market and credit market activity, transaction volume for certain financial instruments remains relatively low. This has made the estimation of fair values difficult and, therefore, both the actual results and the Company’s estimate of fair value at a future date could be materially different.

The Company entered into contingent consideration arrangements as a result of four acquisitions of real estate (see Note 3, “Real Estate Properties Held for Investment”). In order to determine the fair value of the Company’s contingent consideration arrangements, the Company used significant inputs not observable in the market to estimate the contingent consideration. In addition to using an appropriate discount rate, the Company used projections provided by the facilities to estimate future earnings at the facilities, then developed probability-weighted scenarios of the potential future performance of the tenant and the resulting payout from these scenarios.  As of each of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the total contingent consideration liability was valued at $2.7 million and the contingent consideration asset was valued at $0.4 million.

EQUITY
Preferred Stock
On March 21, 2013, the Company completed an underwritten public offering of 5.8 million shares of 7.125% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (the "Series A Preferred Stock") at a price of $25.00 per share, pursuant to an effective registration statement. The Company received net proceeds of $138.3 million from the offering, after deducting underwriting discounts and other offering expenses. The Company classified the par value as preferred equity on its condensed consolidated balance sheets with the balance of the liquidation preference, net of any issuance costs, recorded as an increase in paid-in capital.
The holders of the Company’s Series A Preferred Stock rank senior to the Company’s common stock with respect to dividend rights and rights upon the Company’s liquidation, dissolution or winding up of its affairs. At March 31, 2016, there were no dividends in arrears.
The Series A Preferred Stock does not have a stated maturity date, but the Company may redeem the Series A Preferred Stock on or after March 21, 2018, for $25.00 per share, plus any accrued and unpaid dividends.  The Company may redeem the Series A Preferred Stock prior to March 21, 2018, in limited circumstances to preserve its status as a REIT or pursuant to a specified change of control.  Upon the occurrence of a specified change of control, each holder of Series A Preferred Stock will have the right to convert some or all of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by such holder into a number of shares of the Company’s common stock equivalent to $25.00 plus accrued and unpaid dividends, but not to exceed a cap of 1.7864 shares of common stock per share of Series A Preferred Stock (subject to certain adjustments).

During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company issued 0.1 million shares of common stock as a result of restricted stock unit vestings and in connection with amounts payable under the Company's 2015 Bonus Plan pursuant to an election by certain participants to receive their bonus in the form of an equity award.
Upon any payment of shares as a result of restricted stock unit vestings, the participant is required to satisfy the related tax withholding obligation. The 2009 Performance Incentive Plan provides that the Company has the right at its option to (a) require the participant to pay such tax withholding or (b) reduce the number of shares to be delivered by a number of shares necessary to satisfy the related minimum applicable statutory tax withholding obligation. During the three months ended March 31, 2016, pursuant to advance elections made by certain participants, the Company incurred $1.1 million in tax withholding obligations on behalf of its employees that were satisfied through a reduction in the number of shares delivered to those participants.

Certain restricted stock units are considered participating securities because dividend payments are not forfeited even if the underlying award does not vest. Accordingly, the Company uses the two-class method when computing basic and diluted earnings per share. During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, approximately 54,000 and 300 restricted stock units, respectively, were not included in computing diluted earnings per share because they were considered anti-dilutive.

11.SUMMARIZED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATING INFORMATION
In connection with the offerings of the Senior Notes by the Issuers, the Company and certain 100% owned subsidiaries of the Company (the “Guarantors”) have, jointly and severally, fully and unconditionally guaranteed the Senior Notes, subject to release under certain customary circumstances as described below. These guarantees are subordinated to all existing and future senior debt and senior guarantees of the Guarantors and are unsecured. The Company conducts all of its business through and derives virtually all of its income from its subsidiaries. Therefore, the Company’s ability to make required payments with respect to its indebtedness (including the Senior Notes) and other obligations depends on the financial results and condition of its subsidiaries and its ability to receive funds from its subsidiaries.

20


A Guarantor will be automatically and unconditionally released from its obligations under the guarantees with respect to the Senior Notes in the event of:
Any sale of the subsidiary Guarantor or of all or substantially all of its assets;
A merger or consolidation of a subsidiary Guarantor with an issuer of the Senior Notes or another Guarantor, provided that the surviving entity remains a Guarantor;
A subsidiary Guarantor is declared “unrestricted” for covenant purposes under the Senior Notes Indentures;
The requirements for legal defeasance or covenant defeasance or to discharge the Senior Notes Indentures have been satisfied;
