BALANCE SHEET

As previously announced, the Company completed nearly $850 million of debt refinancing during the fourth quarter, resulting in estimated interest expense savings of approximately $14 million annually and increased flexibility to more efficiently manage our balance sheet going forward. This refinancing activity included the following:

1. $720 Million Bridge Loan Refinancing

  • In October, the Company completed the refinancing of a $720 million secured loan with Freddie Mac arranged through KeyBank Real Estate Capital. The loan has a term of seven years and bears interest at LIBOR plus 232 basis points, an improvement of approximately 170 basis points, or $12 million annually, versus the prior financing.

2. $125 Million Revolving Credit Facility

  • In December, the Company entered into its first revolving credit facility. The credit facility has a total capacity of $125 million, which may be increased to $300 million subject to customary terms and conditions, and matures in December 2021 with a one-year extension option. Borrowings under the credit facility bear interest at LIBOR plus 250 basis points. Proceeds from the credit facility along with cash on hand were used to pay off approximately $125 million of existing debt that was scheduled to mature in 2019 and 2020. The credit facility was arranged by KeyBanc Capital Markets, Inc. KeyBank National Association is serving as the Administrative Agent.

As a result of these activities, the Company has improved its weighted average debt maturity from 3.0 years as of September 30, 2018 to 5.3 years as of December 31, 2018.

2019 STRATEGIC PRIORITIES

As part of an extensive review of strategic alternatives announced in February of last year, the Company completed several initiatives, which have meaningfully enhanced the Company’s operating flexibility, capital structure and corporate governance structure. These initiatives are summarized below:

  • May 2018 – The Company terminated triple net leases on 51 independent living properties and negotiated a flexible operating agreement.
  • August 2018 – The Company re-set the dividend to a level the Board believes is appropriate for the internalized Company and more closely align with peer payout ratios.
  • October 2018 – The Company refinanced a $720 million bridge loan, resulting in annual interest expense savings of approximately $12 million, or $0.15 per share.
  • January 2019 – The Company completed the internalization of its management function, resulting in a dedicated management team, the appointment of Robert Savage as the new Chairman of the Board, and the relocation of corporate headquarters.

With the completion of these initiatives, the Board has unanimously determined to conclude the formal review of strategic alternatives, while remaining committed to identifying opportunities to maximize shareholder value and enhance corporate governance. In the near term, the Company has identified several strategic priorities for 2019, including:

1. Optimize Portfolio: As one of the largest owners of private pay senior housing assets in the United States, the Company has a unique real estate portfolio that is well positioned to benefit from medium and longer term trends in the senior housing sector. The Company intends to further improve the overall quality, performance and diversification of its portfolio through a combination of intensive asset management, operator transitions and dispositions of underperforming assets. Following the completion of the strategic initiatives described above, the Company has a high degree of flexibility to transition and sell assets, given that (i) the majority of the portfolio is owned on a managed basis and (ii) the Company’s agreements with operators can generally be terminated without penalty.

2. Managing Operator Concentration: The Company currently has 6 operating partners. Holiday Retirement is its largest operating partner and currently manages assets that account for approximately 80% of its total NOI. Blue Harbor is the Company’s second largest operator and currently manages assets that account for 12% of its NOI. While the Company views both Holiday and Blue Harbor as strong operators in the senior housing industry, it recognizes the benefits of having a diversified portfolio of operators. To that end, New Senior recently engaged two new operating partners, and continues to actively evaluate all of its operator relationships as it seeks to improve performance and position the Company for growth.

3. Strengthen Balance Sheet: The Company is committed to improving its balance sheet with the goal of reducing leverage over time and increasing flexibility. In the near term, the Company will seek to reduce leverage through asset sales and improved operating performance.

4. Increasing Transparency of Financial Results: With the internalization complete, management is providing guidance for 2019 financial results and expects to continue to provide guidance on a periodic basis, as is customary among the Company’s peers. The Company is committed to demonstrating the earnings power and underlying value of its assets with straightforward and thorough reporting. The Company believes these initiatives will attract a broader institutional shareholder base over time.

2019 GUIDANCE

New Senior expects 2019 FFO, AFFO, and net income attributable to common shareholders, and same store cash NOI growth, to range as follows:

  Full Year 2019 Guidance
Per Share
Low     High
Net Loss Attributable to Common Shareholders

($0.48)

-

($0.42)

FFO

$0.50 - $0.56
Normalized FFO $0.52

-

$0.58
AFFO $0.61 - $0.67
 

Key Guidance Assumptions

Same store managed cash NOI: (3.0%) to 0.0% versus 2018

Debt: LIBOR assumed at 12/31/18 spot rate of 2.50% (each 25bps change in LIBOR equates to $0.04 per share)

G&A: $19 – 20 million

Shares: 84 million diluted shares outstanding

The Company’s guidance is based on a number of other assumptions that are subject to change and many of which are outside the control of the Company. If actual results vary from these assumptions, the Company’s expectations may change. There can be no assurance that the Company will achieve these results. A reconciliation of the Company’s guidance to the Company’s projected GAAP measures is included in this press release.

FOURTH QUARTER DIVIDEND

On February 19, 2019, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.13 per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2018. The dividend is payable on March 22, 2019 to shareholders of record on March 8, 2019.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The tables above set forth reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to net income (loss), which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

A non-GAAP financial measure is a measure of historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes or includes amounts that are not excluded from or included in the most comparable GAAP measure. We consider certain non-GAAP financial measures to be useful supplemental measures of our operating performance. GAAP accounting for real estate assets assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time, even though real estate values historically have risen or fallen with market conditions. As a result, many industry investors look to non-GAAP financial measures for supplemental information about real estate companies.

You should not consider non-GAAP measures as alternatives to GAAP net (loss) income, which is an indicator of our financial performance, or as alternatives to GAAP cash flow from operating activities, which is a liquidity measure, nor are non-GAAP measures necessarily indicative of our ability to satisfy our funding requirements. In order to facilitate a clear understanding of our consolidated historical operating results, you should examine our non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP net (loss) income as presented in our Consolidated Financial Statements and other financial data included elsewhere in this report. Moreover, the comparability of non-GAAP financial measures across companies may be limited as a result of differences in the manner in which real estate companies calculate such measures, the capital structure of such companies or other factors.

Below is a description of the non-GAAP financial measures presented herein.

NOI and Cash NOI

The Company evaluates the performance of each of its three business segments based on NOI. The Company defines NOI as total revenues less property-level operating expenses, which include property management fees and travel cost reimbursements. The sum of the NOI for each segment is total NOI, which the Company uses to evaluate the aggregate performance of its segments. The Company defines Cash NOI as NOI excluding the effects of straight-line rent, amortization of above / below market lease intangibles and amortization of deferred community fees and other, which includes the net change in deferred community fees and other rent discounts or incentives. We believe that NOI and Cash NOI serve as useful supplemental measures to net income because they allow investors, analysts and management to measure unlevered property-level operating results and to compare our operating results between periods and to the operating results of other real estate companies on a consistent basis.

Same store NOI and same store cash NOI include only properties owned for the entirety of comparable periods. Properties acquired, sold, transitioned to other operators or between segments, classified as held for sale during the comparable periods are excluded from the same store amounts. Accordingly, same store results exclude the performance of the 51 assets that were transitioned from the triple net lease segment to the managed segment as a result of the lease termination in May 2018.

Adjusted same store cash NOI adjusts same store cash NOI to include properties transitioned from the Company’s triple net lease segment to the managed segment during the comparative periods. For the period during which the properties were owned on a triple net basis, cash NOI reflects the unaudited operating results provided by the operator, as opposed to the rent recorded by the Company, and excludes ancillary service revenue attributable to a business that ceased operations over the course of 2018.

FFO and Other Non-GAAP Measures

We use Funds From Operations ("FFO") and Normalized FFO as supplemental measures of our operating performance. We use the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") definition of FFO. NAREIT defines FFO as GAAP net income (loss) excluding gains (losses) from sales of depreciable real estate assets and impairment charges of depreciable real estate, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated entities and joint ventures to reflect FFO on the same basis. FFO does not account for debt principal payments and is not intended as a measure of a REIT’s ability to satisfy such payments or any other cash requirements.

Normalized FFO, as defined below, measures the financial performance of our portfolio of assets excluding items that, although incidental to, are not reflective of the day-to-day operating performance of our portfolio of assets. We believe that Normalized FFO is useful because it facilitates the evaluation of our portfolio’s operating performance (i) between periods on a consistent basis and (ii) to the operating performance of other real estate companies. However, comparability may be limited because our calculation of Normalized FFO may differ significantly from that of other companies, or because of features of our business that are not present in other companies.

We define Normalized FFO as FFO excluding the following income and expense items, as applicable: (a) acquisition, transaction and integration related expenses; (b) the write off of unamortized discounts, premiums, deferred financing costs, or additional costs, make whole payments and penalties or premiums incurred as the result of early repayment of debt (collectively “Gain (Loss) on extinguishment of debt”); (c) incentive compensation recognized as a result of sales of real estate; (d) the remeasurement of deferred tax assets; (e) valuation allowance on deferred tax assets, net; (f) termination fee to affiliate; (g) gain on lease termination; and (h) other items that we believe are not indicative of operating performance, generally reported as “Other (income) expense” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.

We also use AFFO and Normalized FAD as supplemental measures of our operating performance.

We define AFFO as Normalized FFO excluding the impact of the following: (a) straight-line rents; (b) amortization of above / below market lease intangibles; (c) amortization of deferred financing costs; (d) amortization of premium on mortgage notes payable; (e) amortization of deferred community fees and other, which includes the net change in deferred community fees and other rent discounts or incentives; and (f) amortization of equity-based compensation expense.

We define Normalized FAD as AFFO less routine capital expenditures, which we view as a cost associated with the current economic return. Normalized FAD, which does not reflect debt principal payments and certain other expenses, does not represent cash available for distribution to shareholders.
