LTC REPORTS 2020 FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

AND DISCUSSES RECENT ACTIVITIES

 

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CALIFORNIA, May 4, 2020-- LTC Properties, Inc. (NYSE: LTC), a real estate investment trust that primarily invests in seniors housing and health care properties, today announced operating results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

 

Net income available to common stockholders was $63.4 million, or $1.60 per diluted share, for the 2020 first quarter, compared with $20.3 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, for the same period in 2019. The improvement was primarily due to a $43.9 million net gain on sale of properties and higher rental and interest income in the 2020 first quarter, partially offset by lower income from investment in unconsolidated joint ventures and higher general and administrative expenses.

 

Funds from Operations (“FFO”) was $29.2 million for the 2020 first quarter, compared with $29.9 million for the comparable 2019 period. FFO per diluted common share was $0.74 and $0.75 for the quarters ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The decrease in FFO and FFO per diluted common share was primarily due to lower income from unconsolidated joint ventures and higher general and administrative expenses during 2020 first quarter, partially offset by higher rental and interest income.

 

LTC completed the following transactions during the first quarter of 2020:

 

·Acquired a 140-bed skilled nursing center in Longview, Texas for approximately $13.5 million, and entered into a 10-year master lease with an initial cash yield of 8.5% escalating 2% annually with two, five-year renewal options;

 

·Completed the sale of its Preferred Care, Inc. portfolio with the sale of 21 skilled nursing centers, as previously announced. These properties included 2,411 beds in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas and Texas, generated net proceeds of $71.9 million, had a combined net book value of $29.1 million and resulted in gain on sale of approximately $43.9 million;

 

·Completed construction of a 78-unit seniors housing community in Oregon; and

 

·Purchased 615,827 shares of its common stock at an average price of $29.25 per share, including commissions, for a total investment of approximately $18.0 million under the stock repurchase plan which was approved by LTC’s Board of Directors on March 12, 2020. In order to preserve liquidity and financial flexibility in light of impact of the national COVID-19 pandemic, LTC’s Board of Directors made the strategic decision to terminate the stock repurchase plan on March 25, 2020.

Subsequent to March 31, 2020, LTC completed the following:

 

·Received liquidation proceeds of $17.2 from the sale of properties in an unconsolidated joint venture. LTC anticipates receiving additional proceeds of $1.3 million and expects to recognize a loss on liquidation of unconsolidated joint ventures of approximately $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2020 related to the dissolution of this joint venture.

Supplemental Reporting Measures

 

FFO and Funds Available for Distribution (“FAD”) are supplemental measures of a real estate investment trust’s (“REIT”) financial performance that are not defined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Investors, analysts and the Company use FFO and FAD as supplemental measures of operating performance. The Company believes FFO and FAD are helpful in evaluating the operating performance of a REIT. Real estate values historically rise and fall with market conditions, but cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with 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 and FAD facilitate like comparisons of operating performance between periods. Occasionally, the Company may exclude non-recurring items from FFO and FAD in order to allow investors, analysts and our management to compare the Company’s operating performance on a consistent basis without having to account for differences caused by unanticipated items.

 

FFO, as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), means net income available to common stockholders (computed in accordance with 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. The Company’s computation 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 have a different interpretation of the current NAREIT definition from that of the Company; therefore, caution should be exercised when comparing our Company’s FFO to that of other REITs.

 

We define FAD as FFO excluding the effects of straight-line rent, amortization of lease inducement, effective interest income, deferred income from unconsolidated joint ventures, non-cash compensation charges, capitalized interest and non-cash interest charges. GAAP requires rental revenues related to non-contingent leases that contain specified rental increases over the life of the lease to be recognized evenly over the life of the lease. This method results in rental income in the early years of a lease that is higher than actual cash received, creating a straight-line rent receivable asset included in our consolidated balance sheet. At some point during the lease, depending on its terms, cash rent payments exceed the straight-line rent which results in the straight-line rent receivable asset decreasing to zero over the remainder of the lease term. Effective interest method, as required by GAAP, is a technique for calculating the actual interest rate for the term of a mortgage loan based on the initial origination value. Similar to the accounting methodology of straight-line rent, the actual interest rate is higher than the stated interest rate in the early years of the mortgage loan thus creating an effective interest receivable asset included in the interest receivable line item in our consolidated balance sheet and reduces down to zero when, at some point during the mortgage loan, the stated interest rate is higher than the actual interest rate. FAD is useful in analyzing the portion of cash flow that is available for distribution to stockholders. Investors, analysts and the Company utilize FAD as an indicator of common dividend potential. The FAD payout ratio, which represents annual distributions to common shareholders expressed as a percentage of FAD, facilitates the comparison of dividend coverage between REITs.

 

While the Company uses FFO and FAD as supplemental performance measures of our cash flow generated by operations and cash available for distribution to stockholders, such measures are not representative of cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, and are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs and should not be considered an alternative to net income available to common stockholders.
