CNL Lifestyle Properties Announces Third Quarter 2014 Results

Orlando, Fla., Nov. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CNL Lifestyle Properties, Inc., a real estate investment trust ("we," "our" or "us"), today announced its operating results for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014.

Third Quarter 2014

  • Total revenues increased $18.9 million, or 11.7 percent, as compared to the third quarter of 2013.
  • Total expenses increased $6.6 million, or 5.3 percent, as compared to the third quarter of 2013.
  • Net income decreased $47.7 million, or 60.9 percent, as compared to the third quarter of 2013 primarily due to the gain from sale of our interests in three unconsolidated joint ventures that occurred in July 2013.
  • Funds from Operations ("FFO") decreased $1.4 million, or 2.1 percent. FFO per share remained constant, as compared to the third quarter of 2013 of $0.20 per share.
  • Modified Funds from Operations ("MFFO") and MFFO per share increased $14.6 million, or 22.5 percent and $0.04 per share, respectively, as compared to the third quarter of 2013.
  • Adjusted Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") increased $19.8 million, or 28.0 percent, as compared to the third quarter of 2013.

Nine Months Ended Sept. 30, 2014

  • Total revenues increased $38.3 million, or 10.4 percent, as compared to the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2013.
  • Total expenses decreased $24.8 million, or 6.5 percent, as compared to the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2013.
  • Net income increased $2.0 million to $1.8 million from a net loss of $0.2 million during the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2013.
  • FFO and FFO per share increased $5.7 million or 5.1 percent and $0.01 per share, respectively, as compared to the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2013.
  • MFFO and MFFO per share increased $20.8 million or 18.9 percent and $0.05 per share, respectively, as compared to the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased $17.1 million or 12.0 percent as compared to the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2013.

The decrease in FFO and FFO per share for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014, is primarily due to net loss on extinguishment of debt from loans paid off with the proceeds from the sale of our golf portfolio and an increase in interest expense from new borrowings obtained in connection with the acquisition of senior housing properties offset by additional rental income from recently acquired leased properties and "same-store" growth in net operating income from our managed properties. The increase in FFO and FFO per share for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2014, is primarily due to increase in rental income from recently acquired leased properties and "same-store" growth in net operating income from our managed properties offset by the net loss on extinguishment of debt and higher interest expense.

Similarly, the increase in MFFO and MFFO per share for the quarter and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2014, is primarily due to increase in rent payments from leased properties (rental revenue excluding straight-line adjustments for GAAP) from recently acquired properties as well as growth in "same-store" net operating income from our managed properties. The increases were partially offset by higher interest expense due to additional borrowings made after Sept. 30, 2013.

The increase in Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2014, is primarily due to the same attributions described above in MFFO and MFFO per share. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2014, also includes the reduction in cash distributions received from our unconsolidated joint ventures due to the sale of our interests in three unconsolidated senior housing joint ventures in July 2013.

The following table presents selected comparable financial data through Sept. 30, 2014:

FOOTNOTES:

(1) Property operating results for tenants under leased arrangements are not included in our operating results. Property-level EBITDA above is disclosed before rent and capital reserve payments to us, as applicable.

(2) As of Sept. 30, 2014, on trailing 12-month ("TTM") basis for properties subject to lease calculated as property-level EBITDA before recurring capital expenditures divided by base rent.

Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended Sept. 30, 2014

  • Property-level revenue increased 6.7 percent and 1.8 percent, respectively, and property-level EBITDA increased 6.5 percent and 0.6 percent, respectively, as compared to the quarter and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2013.
  • Our ski and mountain lifestyle properties experienced an increase in revenue for the third quarter of 2014 due to favorable weather conditions for summer operations which includes mountain biking and aerial adventures, as well as strong group and conference business at those resorts with facilities which operate during the non-winter months; but EBITDA decreased due to higher healthcare costs and a one-time tax credit received last year at one of our ski resorts. For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2014, revenues at our ski and mountain lifestyle properties decreased primarily due to snow levels in the West (particularly in California) where snowfall was significantly below historical norms during much of the 2013/2014 ski season as a result of warm temperatures and drought conditions which caused these properties to experience poor operating results as compared to the 2012/2013 ski season. An El Niño weather pattern is forecasted for the 2014/2015 ski season, which typically results in more favorable precipitation levels for the Pacific West region.
  • Capital improvements made and our manager's efforts to promote and drive attendance at our attractions properties resulted in an increase in season pass sales and in-park spending as compared to prior year. In addition, visitation at our attractions properties increased by 10.3 percent year-over-year.
  • Higher average rates paid by our residents at our senior housing properties resulted in an increase in revenue but EBITDA decreased due to higher resident care expenses, repairs and maintenance expenses, and other operating expenses.
  • Our marinas were impacted by the transition of the properties to new managers (completed in April 2014) operated under a managed structure where we now incur management fees, which reduced the operating margin at the properties. Additionally, in December 2013, record-breaking cold temperatures and ice storms at one of our largest marinas caused damage to the docks and other floating structures, which resulted in temporary partial closure of this property, reducing the operating results. Over the long term, we believe our new managers will be able to achieve higher level of EBITDA at our marinas.

The following table presents same-store, unaudited property-level information of our senior housing properties as of and for the quarter and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2014 and 2013:

Number Occupancy
of As of Sept. 30, Increase/
Properties 2014 2013 (Decrease)
Senior housing 20 92.7% 92.5% 0.2%
RevPOU
Number Quarter Ended Nine Months Ended

Senior housing 20 $3,958 $3,821 3.6% $3,892 $3,781 2.9%

The increase in revenue per occupied unit ("RevPOU") of 3.6 percent and 2.9 percent for the quarter and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2014, respectively, as compared to the same periods in 2013 is due to strong unit demand and an increase in average rate paid by our residents.

Acquisition Activity

During the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2014, we acquired nine senior housing communities for an aggregate purchase price of $153.9 million.

Disposition

In connection with our evaluation of strategic alternatives to provide liquidity for our shareholders, during the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014, we sold 46 of our 48 golf properties and received net sales proceeds of approximately $297.3 million. The remaining two golf properties are expected to be sold by the end of this year. The net sales proceeds were used to retire debt.

Distributions

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2014, we declared and paid distributions of $103.3 million ($0.3189 per share).

Distribution Reinvestments and Redemptions

In Sept. 2014, our board of directors approved the suspension of our distribution reinvestment plan and redemption plan effective as of Sept. 26, 2014. As a result of the suspension of the DRP, stockholders who were participants in the DRP received cash distributions instead of additional shares in the Company.

As a result of the suspension of the redemption plan, all redemption requests received prior to Sept. 26, 2014, which were not redeemed will be placed in the redemption queue. Any requests made after Sept. 26, 2014, will not be accepted or processed unless the redemption plan is reinstated by our Board, which is not expected at this time.

Non-GAAP Supplemental Financial Measures

The Company computes its financial results in accordance with GAAP. Although FFO, MFFO and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures, the Company believes FFO, MFFO, and Adjusted EBITDA calculations are helpful to stockholders and are widely recognized measures of real estate investment trust ("REIT") operating performance. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided reconciliations to these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

The Company calculates and reports FFO in accordance with the definitional and interpretive guidelines established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"). NAREIT defines FFO as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains or losses from sales of property and real estate impairment write-downs, plus depreciation and amortization, and after similar adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company's FFO calculation complies with NAREIT's guidance described above. The Company believes that FFO, together with the GAAP measure of net income (loss), provides useful information to investors regarding the Company's operating performance because it is a measure of the Company's operations without regard to specific non-cash items, such as depreciation and amortization and asset impairment write-downs.

The Company calculates and reports MFFO in accordance with the Investment Program Association's ("IPA") Guideline 2010-01, Supplemental Performance Measure for Publicly Registered, Non-Listed REITs: Modified Funds from Operations, (the "Practice Guideline"), issued by the IPA in November 2010. The Practice Guideline defines MFFO as FFO further adjusted for the following items, as applicable, included in the determination of GAAP net income (loss): acquisition fees and expenses; amounts relating to the write-off of deferred rent receivables and other lease-related assets as well as amortization of above and below market leases and liabilities (which are adjusted in order to remove the impact of GAAP straight-line adjustments from rental revenues); accretion of discounts and amortization of premiums on debt investments; mark-to-market adjustments included in net income (loss); nonrecurring gains or losses included in net income (loss) from the extinguishment or sale of debt, hedges, foreign exchange, derivatives or securities holdings where trading of such holdings is not a fundamental attribute of the business plan; elimination of adjustments relating to contingent purchase price obligations where such adjustments have been included in the derivation of GAAP net income (loss); unrealized gains or losses resulting from consolidation from, or deconsolidation to, equity accounting; and after adjustments for consolidated and unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures, with such adjustments calculated to reflect MFFO on the same basis. The Company believes that MFFO is useful to investors in evaluating its performance because the exclusion of certain recurring and nonrecurring items described above provide useful supplemental information regarding its ongoing performance, and that MFFO, when combined with the primary GAAP measure of income (loss), is beneficial to a complete understanding of its operating performance.

Presentation of this information is intended to provide useful information to investors as they compare the operating performance of different REITs, although it should be noted that not all REITs calculate FFO and MFFO the same way. Accordingly, comparisons with other REITs may not be meaningful. FFO and MFFO are not necessarily indicative of cash flow available to fund cash needs and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) or income (loss) from continuing operations as an indication of our performance, as an alternative to cash flows from operations or as an indication of its liquidity, or indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs including our ability to make distributions to our stockholders. Stockholders and investors should not rely on FFO and MFFO as a substitute for any GAAP measure. MFFO has limitations as a performance measure in an offering such as the Company's where the price of a share of common stock is a stated value or based on an estimated net asset value. MFFO is useful in assisting management and investors in assessing the sustainability of operating performance in future operating periods, and, in particular, after the offering and acquisition stages are complete and net asset value is disclosed. FFO and MFFO are not useful measures in evaluating net asset value because impairments are taken into account in determining net asset value but not in determining FFO and MFFO.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), less discontinued operations and other income, plus (i) net interest expense and loan cost amortization and (ii) depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted for the impact of equity in earnings (loss) of our unconsolidated entities, straight-line adjustment for leased properties and mortgages and other rents receivable, cash distributions from unconsolidated entities, and certain other non-recurring items that the Company does not consider indicative of its ongoing operating performance. These further adjustments are itemized in the table below. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons the Company considers them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. The Company's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that its future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.

The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes it assists investors and analysts in comparing its performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that it does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance.

For additional information, please refer to the Company's discussion of FFO, MFFO and Adjusted EBITDA included in Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014, filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on Nov. 13, 2014.

FOOTNOTES:

(1) This amount represents our share of the FFO or MFFO adjustments allowable under the NAREIT or IPA definitions, respectively, multiplied by the percentage of income or loss recognized under the HLBV method.

(2) In evaluating investments in real estate, management differentiates the costs to acquire the investment from the operations derived from the investment. By adding back acquisition fees and expense relating to business combinations, management believes MFFO provides useful supplemental information of its operating performance and will also allow comparability between real estate entities regardless of their level of acquisition activities. Acquisition fees and expenses include payments to our advisor or third parties. Acquisition fees and expenses relating to business combinations under GAAP are considered operating expenses and as expenses included in the determination of net income (loss) and income (loss) from continuing operations, both of which are performance measures under GAAP. All paid and accrued acquisition fees and expenses will have negative effects on returns to investors, the potential for future distributions, and cash flows generated by us, unless earnings from operations or net sales proceeds from the disposition of properties are generated to cover the purchase price of the property.

(3) Under GAAP, rental receipts are allocated to periods using various methodologies. This may result in income recognition that is significantly different than underlying contract terms. By adjusting for these items (to reflect such payments from a GAAP accrual basis to a cash basis of disclosing the rent and lease payments), MFFO provides useful supplemental information on the realized economic impact of lease terms and debt investments, providing insight on the contractual cash flows of such lease terms and debt investments, and aligns results with management's analysis of operating performance.

(4) (Gain) loss from early extinguishment of debt includes swap breakage fees, write-off of unamortized loan costs and reclassification of loss on termination of cash flow hedges from other comprehensive income (loss) into interest expense.

(5) We recorded a loan loss provision on one of our mortgages and other notes receivable as a result of uncertainty related to the collectability of the note receivable.

(6) Management believes that the elimination of the contingent purchase price consideration adjustment, which represents yield guarantee, included in interest and other income (expense) for GAAP purposes is appropriate because the adjustment is a non-recurring, non-cash adjustment that is not reflective of our ongoing operating performance and aligns results with management's analysis of operating performance.

Set forth below is a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) (in thousands):

FOOTNOTES:

(1) Investments in our unconsolidated joint ventures are accounted for under the HLBV method of accounting. Under this method, we recognize income or loss based on the change in liquidating proceeds we would receive from a hypothetical liquidation of our investments based on depreciated book value. We adjust EBITDA for equity in earnings (loss) of our unconsolidated entities because we believe this is not reflective of the joint ventures' operating performance or cash flows available for distributions to us. We believe cash distributions from our unconsolidated entities, exclusive of any financing transactions, are reflective of their operating performance and its impact to us and have been added back to adjusted EBITDA above. For the quarter and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2013, cash distributions from unconsolidated entities excludes approximately $5.3 million in return of capital.

(2) We believe that adjusting for straight-line adjustments for leased properties and mortgages and other notes receivable is appropriate because they are non-cash adjustments and reflect the actual cash receipts received by us from our tenants and borrowers.

(3) In July 2013, we completed the sale of our interests in 42 senior housing properties held through three unconsolidated joint ventures. See "Distributions from Unconsolidated Entities" above for additional information.

(4) In connection with an acquisition of an attraction property, we recorded a bargain purchase gain as a result of the fair value of the net assets acquired exceeding the consideration transferred as discussed above.
