Excluding transaction-related costs in the second quarter of 2011, CFFO was $0.52 per share for the second quarter of 2011 versus $0.48 per share for the second quarter of 2010.
  • Revenue increased over the second quarter of 2010 by $17.8 million, or 3.1%, to $583.3 million.
  • Since the beginning of the year, the Company refinanced or repaid a total of $845.5 million of mortgage debt due in 2012 and 2013; replaced with $782.0 million of debt with a blended current rate of 3.37%.
  • Announced a definitive agreement to acquire the nation's ninth largest senior housing operator with 90 communities and 16,165 units.

Brookdale Senior Living Inc. (NYSE: BKD) (the "Company") today reported financial and operating results for the second quarter of 2011.  

Bill Sheriff, Brookdale's CEO said, "We had some very good accomplishments in the second quarter and, at the same time, had some outcomes which were not as good as we expected.  Our business, and the industry as a whole, continue to be impacted by the general economic environment, including the housing market and consumer sentiment, and the most recently announced changes in Medicare reimbursement related to skilled nursing.  We entered 2011 with a sense of optimism that we were seeing an improvement in the economy after sequentially improving results in rate and occupancy through 2010.  However, after a customarily soft first quarter occupancy, we saw only improvement in rate, but not occupancy for the first two months of the second quarter.  Reinstating some incentives in May led to an average occupancy increase of 30 basis points in June and 40 basis points in July.  We expect to continue to increase occupancy over the next two quarters, by judiciously balancing rate growth against the economic backdrop, as well as implementing other initiatives to improve Brookdale's brand and performance."  

Mark Ohlendorf, Co-President and CFO of Brookdale, commented, "Since the beginning of the year, we have made major strides with our debt profile.  With the recently announced Fannie Mae refinancing, we have eliminated all of our 2012 maturities (other than periodic, scheduled principal amortization) and a portion of our 2013 maturities.  Through the combination of our convertible notes issuance and low-leverage mortgage debt, we were able to extend maturities, slightly decrease interest cost and attractively fix a significant portion of the interest rate."

Mr. Sheriff commented further, "We are very excited about our imminent acquisition of Horizon Bay, which is a substantial step forward in the growth of the Company, and we expect more opportunities before the end of the year.  With Brookdale's platform, the relationships we have developed with strong partners, an active acquisitions pipeline and valuations affording a strong return, we have many ways to continue to grow the Company.  In addition, we are confident that whatever environmental challenges continue for our business there is an expanding market for Brookdale's products and services, and our team has the expertise, experience and talent to grow our Company and build market share."  

Financial Results

Total revenue for the second quarter was $583.3 million, an increase of $17.8 million, or 3.1%, from the second quarter of 2010.  Average monthly revenue per unit was $4,620 in the second quarter, an increase of $205, or 4.6%, over the second quarter of 2010.  Average occupancy for all consolidated communities for the second quarter of 2011 was 86.6%, a decrease from 86.8% for the second quarter of 2010 and 60 basis points lower than the first quarter of 2011.  As of July, average occupancy for all consolidated communities was 87.1%.

Facility operating expenses for the second quarter were $366.2 million, an increase of $13.2 million, or 3.7%, from the second quarter of 2010.  Operating contribution margin for the Company during the second quarter of 2011 was 35.1% versus 35.5% for the second quarter of 2010.  

General and administrative expenses for the second quarter were $33.7 million, up from $31.8 million in the second quarter of 2010.  Excluding non-cash stock-based compensation expense and transaction-related costs from both periods, general and administrative expenses were $28.2 million in the second quarter of 2011 versus $26.7 million for the prior year same period.  Demonstrating the Company's efficient platform, general and administrative expenses for the quarter, excluding non-cash stock-based compensation expense and transaction-related costs were 4.7% of revenue (including revenues under management).

Brookdale's management utilizes Adjusted EBITDA and Cash From Facility Operations to evaluate the Company's performance and liquidity because these metrics exclude non-cash expenses such as depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation expense and straight-line lease expense, net of deferred gain amortization.  Brookdale also uses Facility Operating Income to assess the performance of its communities.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2011, Facility Operating Income was $191.1 million, an increase of $3.4 million, or 1.8%, from the second quarter of 2010, and Adjusted EBITDA was $103.7 million, an increase of $3.5 million, or 3.5%, over the second quarter of 2010.  For the six months ended June 30, 2011, Facility Operating Income was $382.4 million, an increase of $12.8 million, or 3.5%, from the first half of 2010, and Adjusted EBITDA was $206.5 million, an increase of $10.0 million, or 5.1%, over the first half of 2010.  

Cash From Facility Operations was $61.3 million for the second quarter of 2011, or $0.51 per share, an increase of $4.3 million, or 7.6%, from CFFO of $57.0 million, or $0.48 per share, for the second quarter of 2010.  Excluding transaction-related expenses of nearly $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2011 related to financing and acquisition activities, CFFO was $0.52 per share.  Cash From Facility Operations was $123.1 million, or $1.02 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2011, an increase of $11.7 million, or 10.5%, from CFFO of $111.4 million, or $0.94 per share, for the first half of 2010.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2011 was $(34.0) million, or $(0.28) per diluted common share. The loss for the quarter includes non-cash items for depreciation and amortization, asset impairment charges, non-cash stock-based compensation expense and straight-line lease expense, net of deferred gain amortization.

Operating Activities

For the quarter ended June 30, 2011, same community revenues grew 3.0% over the same period in 2010, as revenue per unit increased by 4.0% and occupancy decreased by 90 basis points.  Same community Facility Operating Income for the quarter increased by 0.4% when compared to the second quarter of 2010.  

The same community results for senior housing, excluding ancillary services, for the three months ended June 30, 2011 showed revenues grew 2.7% over the corresponding period in 2010 as revenue per unit increased by 3.7%.  Same community Facility Operating Income for senior housing (excluding ancillary services) increased by 1.5% over the second quarter of 2010.

By the end of the second quarter, the Company's ancillary services programs provided therapy services to over 38,500 Brookdale units.  At the end of the quarter, the Company's home health agencies were serving over 31,000 units across the total consolidated Brookdale portfolio, up from approximately 26,800 units served a year ago.  Outpatient therapy and home health services produced $154 of monthly Facility Operating Income per occupied unit in the second quarter across all units served, versus $153 per month a year ago.  

Balance Sheet

Brookdale had $40.1 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents and $47.2 million of restricted cash on its balance sheet at the end of the second quarter.  

As of June 30, 2011, the Company had an available secured line of credit with a $230.0 million commitment and separate secured and unsecured letter of credit facilities of up to $82.5 million in the aggregate.  As of June 30, 2011, there were no borrowings under the revolving loan facility and $72.1 million of letters of credit had been issued under the letter of credit facilities.

During the second quarter, the Company completed the issuance of $316.3 million in aggregate principal amount of its 2.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2018 (the "Notes") in an underwritten public offering.  In connection with the offering of the Notes, the Company entered into convertible note hedge transactions with certain financial institutions. The convertible note hedge transactions are intended to reduce the dilutive impact of the conversion feature of the Notes on the Company's outstanding shares of common stock.  The Company also entered into warrant transactions initially relating to the same number of shares of the Company's common stock and having a strike price of $40.25 per share. The net cash proceeds to the Company of these transactions were $276.4 million, which were used to repay $274.9 million of mortgage debt.

Subsequent to the close of the second quarter, the Company obtained a 7-year $437.8 million first mortgage credit facility from Oak Grove Capital through the Fannie Mae DUS program.  75% of the facility bears interest at a fixed rate of 4.25% and the remaining 25% bears interest at a variable rate of 30 day LIBOR plus a margin of 182 basis points.  The facility amount is based on a 55% loan-to-value ratio applied to the appraised value of the secured properties and includes certain release, substitution and "borrow-up" provisions, as well as capacity for expansion.  Proceeds from the financing, together with cash on hand, were used to refinance or prepay $445.2 million of mortgage debt which was scheduled to mature in February and August 2012.  The Company currently has no mortgage debt maturities before 2013, other than periodic, scheduled principal payments.

Acquisitions/Divestitures

As previously announced, during the second quarter, the Company entered into a definitive agreement to acquire 100% of the equity interests in Horizon Bay Realty, L.L.C. ("Horizon Bay"), the ninth largest operator of senior living communities in the United States.  Upon completion of the Horizon Bay transaction, the Company will add to its portfolio 90 communities with over 16,000 units in 19 states.  The Company will lease 12 of the Horizon Bay communities, third-party manage 57 of the communities and form a joint venture with HCP, Inc.  to own and operate the remaining 21 communities.  The transactions are expected to close on September 1, 2011, although there can be no assurance that the transactions will close or, if they do, when the actual closing will occur.  The consummation of the Horizon Bay acquisition and related transactions is subject to the satisfaction of certain closing conditions and contingencies, including the receipt of various third-party and regulatory approvals and consents.

During the second quarter, the Company purchased one home health agency for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $3.2 million.  The entire purchase price of the acquisition has been ascribed to an indefinite useful life intangible and recorded on the condensed consolidated balance sheets under other intangible assets, net.

The Company sold one community during the quarter, a Retirement Center with a total of 152 units.  

2011 Outlook

For the full year 2011, the Company now expects Cash From Facility Operations to range between $2.10 and $2.20 per share versus CFFO of $2.02 per share for full year 2010.  This reflects lowered revenue growth expectations due to the sluggish economy's impact on occupancy rates, revenue per unit growth and entrance fee sales, offset by lower operating costs.  These estimates do not include the impact on operating results from possible future acquisitions or dispositions.

Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of operating performance that is not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").  Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, income from operations or cash flows provided by or used in operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP.  Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure of the Company's operating performance used by management to focus on operating performance and management without mixing in items of income and expense that relate to long-term contracts and the financing and capitalization of the business.  We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before provision (benefit) for income taxes, non-operating (income) expense items, (gain) loss on sale of communities (including facility lease termination expense), depreciation and amortization (including non-cash impairment charges), straight-line lease expense (income), amortization of deferred gain, amortization of deferred entrance fees, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, and change in future service obligation and including entrance fee receipts and refunds (excluding first generation entrance fee receipts on a newly opened entrance fee CCRC).

We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating our performance, results of operations and financial position for the following reasons:

  • It is helpful in identifying trends in our day-to-day performance because the items excluded have little or no significance to our day-to-day operations;
  • It provides an assessment of controllable expenses and affords management the ability to make decisions which are expected to facilitate meeting current financial goals as well as achieve optimal financial performance; and
  • It is an indication to determine if adjustments to current spending decisions are needed.

(1)  The calculation of Adjusted EBITDA includes transaction-related costs of $0.9 million for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.

(2)  Includes the receipt of refundable and non-refundable entrance fees.

(3)  First generation entrance fees received represents initial entrance fees received from the sale of units at a newly opened entrance fee CCRC.

Cash From Facility Operations

Cash From Facility Operations (CFFO) is a measurement of liquidity that is not calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for cash flows provided by or used in operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP.  We define CFFO as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities adjusted for changes in operating assets and liabilities, deferred interest and fees added to principal, refundable entrance fees received, first generation entrance fee receipts on a newly opened entrance fee CCRC, entrance fee refunds disbursed, lease financing debt amortization with fair market value or no purchase options, facility lease termination expense, recurring capital expenditures, distributions from unconsolidated ventures from cumulative share of net earnings, CFFO from unconsolidated ventures, and other.  Recurring capital expenditures include routine expenditures capitalized in accordance with GAAP that are funded from current operations.  Amounts excluded from recurring capital expenditures consist primarily of major projects, renovations, community repositionings, expansions, systems projects or other non-recurring or unusual capital items (including integration capital expenditures) or community purchases that are funded using lease or financing proceeds, available cash and/or proceeds from the sale of communities that are held for sale.

In the fourth quarter of 2010, we revised the definition of Cash From Facility Operations to exclude distributions from unconsolidated ventures from cumulative share of net earnings and include our proportionate share (based on equity ownership percentages) of the Cash From Facility Operations generated by our unconsolidated ventures.   This impact is included in the Cash From Facility Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.  Due to immateriality, the prior periods have not been restated.

We believe CFFO is useful to investors in evaluating our liquidity for the following reasons:

  • It provides an assessment of our ability to facilitate meeting current financial and liquidity goals.
  • To assess our ability to:
    • service our outstanding indebtedness;
    • pay dividends; and
    • make regular recurring capital expenditures to maintain and improve our facilities.

The table below reconciles CFFO from net cash provided by operating activities for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 (in thousands):

(1)  The calculation of CFFO includes transaction-related costs of $0.9 million for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.

(2)  Total entrance fee receipts for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 were $14.6 million and $15.0 million, respectively, including $9.3 million and $8.4 million, respectively, of non-refundable entrance fee receipts included in net cash provided by operating activities.  Total entrance fee receipts for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 were $27.1 million and $33.0 million, respectively, including $15.7 million and $17.9 million, respectively, of non-refundable entrance fee receipts included in net cash provided by operating activities.

(3)  First generation entrance fees received represents initial entrance fees received from the sale of units at a newly opened entrance fee CCRC.

The calculation of CFFO per share is based on weighted average outstanding common shares for the period, excluding any unvested restricted shares.  Annual CFFO per share for all periods is calculated as the sum of the quarterly amounts for the year.

Facility Operating Income

Facility Operating Income is not a measurement of operating performance calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for net income, income from operations, or cash flows provided by or used in operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP.  We define Facility Operating Income as net income (loss) before provision (benefit) for income taxes, non-operating (income) expense items, (gain) loss on sale of communities (including facility lease termination expense), depreciation and amortization (including non-cash impairment charges), facility lease expense, general and administrative expense, including non-cash stock-based compensation expense, change in future service obligation, amortization of deferred entrance fee revenue and management fees.

We believe Facility Operating Income is useful to investors in evaluating our facility operating performance for the following reasons:

  • It is helpful in identifying trends in our day-to-day facility performance;
  • It provides an assessment of our revenue generation and expense management; and
  • It provides an indicator to determine if adjustments to current spending decisions are needed.
