Sabra Reports Third Quarter 2017 Results and Improved Balance Sheet With Leverage Lowered to 4.79x; Increases Quarterly Common Stock Dividend by 5%; Reports Smooth Integration of CCP and Subsequent Investments; Reaffirms 2017 and 2018 Guidance

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sabra Health Care REIT, Inc. (“Sabra,” the “Company” or “we”) (NASDAQ:SBRA) (NASDAQ:SBRAP) today announced results of operations for the third quarter of 2017.

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • During the third quarter of 2017, we completed our previously announced merger with Care Capital Properties, Inc. (“CCP”) and announced approximately $800 million of additional investments. We also announced that we have begun the process of marketing for sale up to all of the remaining 43 facilities leased to Genesis (in addition to the ongoing sales of the 35 facilities subject to the previously announced memoranda of understanding with Genesis), with sales expected to occur in 2018.

  • Effective August 17, 2017, our unsecured credit facility was amended to include a $1.0 billion revolving credit facility, $1.1 billion in U.S. dollar term loans and a CAD $125 million Canadian dollar term loan. The credit facility also contains an accordion feature that can increase the total available borrowings to $2.5 billion, subject to terms and conditions.

  • On September 28, 2017, we completed an underwritten public offering of 16.0 million newly issued shares of our common stock at a price of $21.00 per share and received net proceeds, before expenses, of $322.6 million. The underwriters exercised their option to purchase additional shares, and on October 2, 2017, we issued an additional 2.4 million newly issued shares of our common stock at a price of $21.00 per share and received additional net proceeds, before expenses, of $48.4 million. As a result of the completed CCP merger and financing activities, our Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio improved 56 bps to 4.79x at September 30, 2017 (inclusive of the full common stock offering) as compared to June 30, 2017.

  • For the third quarter of 2017, net income attributable to common stockholders, FFO, Normalized FFO, AFFO and Normalized AFFO per diluted common share were $0.11, $0.34, $0.63, $0.56 and $0.60, respectively, compared to $0.35, $0.59, $0.54, $0.58 and $0.53, respectively, for the third quarter of 2016.

  • On November 1, 2017, the Company announced that its board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.5201087 per share of common stock, which consists of (i) a full quarter dividend of $0.45 per share (an increase from $0.43 per share) and (ii) $0.0701087 per share, which is the difference between the prorated dividend paid on August 18, 2017 and our previous full quarter dividend of $0.43 per share. The dividend will be paid on November 30, 2017 to common stockholders of record as of the close of business on November 15, 2017.

  • On November 1, 2017, the Company also announced that its board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.4453125 per share of Series A Preferred Stock. The dividend will be paid on November 30, 2017 to preferred stockholders of record as of the close of business on November 15, 2017.

Commenting on the third quarter results, Rick Matros, CEO and Chairman, said, “We are pleased with this quarter’s results. Our operating statistics are solid, and the rent repositioning program that we are in the midst of with certain of the legacy CCP tenants should result in healthy skilled nursing rent coverage in line with what we have previously disclosed. In addition to closing the CCP merger, Sabra announced additional investments of approximately $800 million in senior housing and skilled nursing portfolios. The integration efforts following the CCP merger and the additional investments are proceeding smoothly, consistent with our expectations. There have been no surprises and no delays. The closing of the skilled portfolio was uneventful, and the closing of the Enlivant investment is proceeding as expected. The new credit facility and improved leverage also came together as anticipated. We have deepened our senior management team and hired additional team members to comfortably address Sabra 3.0, and we are pleased with their prompt integration into our company. Our acquisition pipeline is in excess of $1 billion, primarily consisting of senior housing opportunities. That said, we expect a quiet end of the year in regard to investments following what has been by any measure an extremely productive year. Finally, we reaffirm our existing 2017 and 2018 guidance.”

These statements may be identified, without limitation, by the use of “expects,” “believes,” “intends,” “should” or comparable terms or the negative thereof. Examples of forward-looking statements include all statements regarding our planned dispositions of facilities leased to Genesis (including the expected proceeds from, and timing of, sales), our portfolio repositioning and enhancement, the status of our integration efforts with respect to CCP and with respect to our other investments this year, as well as our expected future financial position, results of operations (including our outlook for the full years 2017 and 2018), cash flows, liquidity, business strategy, growth opportunities, potential investments, and plans and objectives for future operations.

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: changes in healthcare regulation and political or economic conditions; the anticipated benefits of our merger with CCP may not be realized; the anticipated and unanticipated costs, fees, expenses and liabilities related to our merger with CCP; our dependence on the operating success of our tenants; our ability to implement the previously announced rent repositioning program for certain of our tenants who were legacy tenants of CCP on the timing or terms we have previously disclosed; our ability to dispose of facilities currently leased to Genesis Healthcare, Inc. (“Genesis”) on the timing or terms we have previously disclosed; 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 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 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 REIT; changes in tax laws and regulations affecting REITs; compliance with REIT requirements and certain tax and tax regulatory matters related to our status as a REIT; and the ownership limits and anti-takeover defenses in our governing documents and Maryland law, which may restrict change of control or business combination opportunities.

Ancillary Supported Tenant. A tenant, or one of its affiliates, that owns an ancillary business that depends on providing services to the residents of the properties leased by the affiliated operating company (Sabra's tenant) for a meaningful part of the ancillary business's profitability.

Cash Net Operating Income (“Cash NOI”). The Company believes that net income attributable to common stockholders as defined by GAAP is the most appropriate earnings measure. We consider Cash NOI an important supplemental measure because it allows investors, analysts and our management to evaluate the operating performance of our investments. We define Cash NOI as total revenues less operating expenses and non-cash revenues. Cash NOI excludes all other financial statement amounts included in net income.

EBITDAR. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and rent (“EBITDAR”) for a particular facility accruing to the operator/tenant of the property (not the Company) for the period presented. EBITDAR includes an imputed management fee of 5.0% of revenues for Skilled Nursing/Transitional Care facilities and Senior Housing - Leased communities and an imputed management fee of 2.5% of revenues for Specialty Hospitals and Other facilities. The Company uses EBITDAR in determining EBITDAR Coverage. EBITDAR has limitations as an analytical tool. EBITDAR does not reflect historical cash expenditures or future cash requirements for facility capital expenditures or contractual commitments. In addition, EBITDAR does not represent a property's net income or cash flow from operations and should not be considered an alternative to those indicators. The Company utilizes EBITDAR as a supplemental measure of the ability of the Company's operators/tenants and relevant guarantors to generate sufficient liquidity to meet related obligations to the Company.

EBITDAR Coverage. Represents the ratio of EBITDAR to contractual rent for owned facilities. EBITDAR Coverage is a supplemental measure of an operator/tenant's ability to meet their cash rent and other obligations to the Company. However, its usefulness is limited by, among other things, the same factors that limit the usefulness of EBITDAR.

EBITDARM. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, rent and management fees (“EBITDARM”) for a particular facility accruing to the operator/tenant of the property (not the Company), for the period presented. The Company uses EBITDARM in determining EBITDARM Coverage. The usefulness of EBITDARM is limited by the same factors that limit the usefulness of EBITDAR. Together with EBITDAR, the Company utilizes EBITDARM to evaluate the core operations of the properties by eliminating management fees, which vary based on operator/tenant and its operating structure.

EBITDARM Coverage. Represents the ratio of EBITDARM to contractual rent for owned facilities. EBITDARM coverage is a supplemental measure of a property's ability to generate cash flows for the operator/tenant (not the Company) to meet the operator's/tenant's related cash rent and other obligations to the Company. However, its usefulness is limited by, among other things, the same factors that limit the usefulness of EBITDARM.

Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio. EBITDAR (including adjustments for one-time and pro forma items) for the period indicated (one quarter in arrears) for all operations of any entities that guarantee the tenants' lease obligations to the Company divided by the same period cash rent expense, interest expense and mandatory principal payments for operations of any entity that guarantees the tenants' lease obligation to the Company. Fixed Charge Coverage is a supplemental measure of a guarantor's ability to meet the operator/tenant's cash rent and other obligations to the Company should the operator/tenant be unable to do so itself. However, its usefulness is limited by, among other things, the same factors that limit the usefulness of EBITDAR. Fixed Charge Coverage is calculated by the Company as described above based on information provided by guarantors without independent verification by the Company and may differ from similar metrics calculated by the guarantors.

Funds From Operations Attributable to Common Stockholders (“FFO”) and Adjusted Funds from Operations Attributable to Common Stockholders (“AFFO”). The Company believes that net income attributable to common stockholders as defined by GAAP is the most appropriate earnings measure. The Company also believes that Funds From Operations, or FFO, as defined in accordance with the definition used by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), and Adjusted Funds from Operations, or AFFO (and related per share amounts) are important non-GAAP supplemental measures of the Company's operating performance. Because the historical cost accounting convention used for real estate assets requires straight-line depreciation (except on land), such accounting presentation implies that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. However, since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market and other conditions, presentations of operating results for a real estate investment trust that uses historical cost accounting for depreciation could be less informative. Thus, NAREIT created FFO as a supplemental measure of operating performance for real estate investment trusts that excludes historical cost depreciation and amortization, among other items, from net income attributable to common stockholders, as defined by GAAP. FFO is defined as net income attributable to common stockholders, computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains or losses from real estate dispositions, plus real estate depreciation and amortization and real estate impairment charges. AFFO is defined as FFO excluding straight-line rental income adjustments, amortization of above and below market lease intangibles, net, non-cash interest income adjustments, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of deferred financing costs, merger and acquisition costs, as well as other non-cash revenue and expense items (including provisions and write-offs related to straight-line rental income, provision for loan losses, changes in fair value of contingent consideration and amortization of debt premiums/discounts). The Company believes that the use of FFO and AFFO (and the related per share amounts), combined with the required GAAP presentations, improves the understanding of the Company's operating results among investors and makes comparisons of operating results among real estate investment trusts more meaningful. The Company considers FFO and AFFO to be useful measures for reviewing comparative operating and financial performance because, by excluding the applicable items listed above, FFO and AFFO can help investors compare the operating performance of the Company between periods or as compared to other companies. While FFO and AFFO are relevant and widely used measures of operating performance of real estate investment trusts, they do not represent cash flows from operations or net income attributable to common stockholders as defined by GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to those measures in evaluating the Company’s liquidity or operating performance. FFO and AFFO also do not consider the costs associated with capital expenditures related to the Company’s real estate assets nor do they purport to be indicative of cash available to fund the Company’s future cash requirements. Further, the Company’s computation of FFO and AFFO may not be comparable to FFO and AFFO reported by other real estate investment trusts that do not define FFO in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition or define AFFO differently than the Company does.

Investment. Represents the carrying amount of real estate assets after adding back accumulated depreciation and amortization and excludes net intangible assets and liabilities.

Normalized FFO and Normalized AFFO. Normalized FFO and Normalized AFFO represent FFO and AFFO, respectively, adjusted for certain income and expense items that the Company does not believe are indicative of its ongoing operating results. The Company considers Normalized FFO and Normalized AFFO to be useful measures to evaluate the Company’s operating results excluding these income and expense items to help investors compare the operating performance of the Company between periods or as compared to other companies. Normalized FFO and Normalized AFFO do not represent cash flows from operations or net income as defined by GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to those measures in evaluating the Company’s liquidity or operating performance. Normalized FFO and Normalized AFFO also do not consider the costs associated with capital expenditures related to the Company’s real estate assets nor do they purport to be indicative of cash available to fund the Company’s future cash requirements. Further, the Company’s computation of Normalized FFO and Normalized AFFO may not be comparable to Normalized FFO and Normalized AFFO reported by other REITs that do not define FFO in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition or define FFO and AFFO or Normalized FFO and Normalized AFFO differently than the Company does.

Net Operating Income (“NOI”). The Company believes that net income attributable to common stockholders as defined by GAAP is the most appropriate earnings measure. We consider NOI an important supplemental measure because it allows investors, analysts and our management to evaluate the operating performance of our investments. We define NOI as total revenues less operating expenses. NOI excludes all other financial statement amounts included in net income.

Senior Housing. Senior Housing communities include independent living, assisted living, continuing care retirement and memory care communities.

Skilled Nursing/Transitional Care. Skilled Nursing/Transitional Care facilities include skilled nursing, transitional care, multi-license designation and mental health facilities.

Specialty Hospitals and Other. Includes acute care, long-term acute care, rehabilitation and behavioral hospitals, facilities that provide residential services, which may include assistance with activities of daily living, and other facilities not classified as Skilled Nursing/Transitional Care or Senior Housing.

Stabilized Facility. At the time of acquisition, the Company classifies each facility as either stabilized or pre-stabilized. In addition, the Company may classify a facility as pre-stabilized after acquisition. Circumstances that could result in a facility being classified as pre-stabilized include newly completed developments, facilities undergoing major renovations or additions, facilities being repositioned or transitioned to new operators, and significant transitions within the tenants’ business model. Such facilities will be reclassified to stabilized upon maintaining consistent occupancy (85% for Skilled Nursing/Transitional Care and 90% for Senior Housing Communities) but in no event beyond 24 months after the date of classification as pre-stabilized. Stabilized Facilities exclude (i) facilities leased through RIDEA-compliant structures, (ii) facilities held for sale or being positioned to be sold, and (iii) facilities acquired during the three months preceding the period presented.

Total Debt. The principal balances of the Company’s revolving credit facility, term loan, senior unsecured notes, and secured indebtedness.

Total Debt, Net. The carrying amount of the Company’s revolving credit facility, term loan, senior unsecured notes, and secured indebtedness, as reported in the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.
