"Our strong performance this quarter and year-to-date underscores the resilience of Welltower's best-in-class seniors housing portfolio and the accelerating transition of health care delivery to more accessible and lower cost ambulatory settings," commented Thomas J. DeRosa, Chairman and CEO. "We continue to use our cost of capital advantage to invest in the next generation of health and wellness care delivery assets and remain optimistic regarding our ability to source and complete accretive opportunities in the future. We are confident that Welltower's formidable platform is positioned to sustain long-term growth and create significant value for our shareholders."

Capital Activity On September 30, 2019, we had $266 million of cash and cash equivalents and $1.7 billion of available borrowing capacity under our unsecured revolving credit facility. During the third quarter, we sold 3.4 million shares of common stock under our ATM and DRIP programs, through both cash settle and forward sale agreements, at an initial weighted average price of $87.73 per share, generating expected gross proceeds of approximately $302 million.

In August 2019, we completed the issuance of $750 million of 3.10% senior unsecured notes due 2030 and a follow-on issuance of $450 million of 3.625% senior unsecured notes due 2024 priced to yield 2.494%, for net proceeds of approximately $1.2 billion. In September 2019, we redeemed our $450 million of 4.95% senior unsecured notes due 2021 and our $600 million of 5.25% senior unsecured notes due 2022.

Dividend The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 of $0.87 per share. On November 21, 2019, we will pay our 194th consecutive quarterly cash dividend to stockholders of record on November 13, 2019. The declaration and payment of future quarterly dividends remains subject to review and approval by the Board of Directors.

Quarterly Investment and Disposition Activity We continue to leverage our extensive industry relationships to drive acquisition volume  and recycle non-core real estate into new investments that are accretive to the quality of our operator and real estate portfolios and will drive future cash flow growth. In the third quarter, we completed $435 million of pro rata gross investments including $294 million in acquisitions across seven separate transactions at a blended yield of 5.6% and $141 million in development funding with an expected stable yield of 8.1%. Also during the quarter, we completed property dispositions of $2.0 billion at a 6.1% yield and loan payoffs of $62 million at a 9.4% yield.

Notable Investments and Dispositions

Outpatient Medical Investments During the quarter, we expanded key health system relationships through the acquisition of nine Class-A outpatient medical buildings with approximately 429,000 rentable square feet for $193 million. The buildings are leased to prominent regional health systems such as Summit Medical Group, Novant Health, Baylor Scott & White Health and TriHealth.

LCB Senior Living We formed a new RIDEA relationship with Norwood, Massachusetts-based LCB Senior Living, a leading provider of senior living options throughout New England and several Mid-Atlantic states. We acquired a seniors housing community in Connecticut for a pro rata investment of $31 million at approximately $300,000 per unit. In addition, subsequent to quarter end we completed the transition of two former Brookdale communities in Chelmsfold, Massachusetts and Rocky Hill, Connecticut to LCB. LCB is the fifth new seniors housing operator relationship we have announced this year.

Senior Resource Group We expanded our RIDEA relationship with Senior Resource Group by acquiring a seniors housing community in the San Francisco MSA for a pro rata investment of $35 million. We acquired this asset at a significant discount to replacement cost at a basis of approximately $360,000 per unit.

Benchmark Senior Living As previously disclosed, we sold our Benchmark Senior Living portfolio for a gross $1.8 billion sale price, with potential to receive an additional $50 million in earnout proceeds subject to certain future sale hurdles. The 4,137 unit seniors housing operating portfolio consists of 48 assisted living properties located in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. The portfolio had $24 million of secured debt that was extinguished at closing.

Long-Term/Post-Acute Care Dispositions During the quarter, we completed the disposition of 22 properties for $288 million, further reducing long-term/post-acute care concentration.

Investments Subsequent to Quarter End

Frontier Management We expanded our relationship with Frontier Management by acquiring two assets that were already managed by Frontier in Boise, Idaho and Turlock, California for approximately $39 million at a 6.3% cap rate and $197,000 per unit.

Oakmont Senior Living We are expanding our relationship with Oakmont Senior Living by entering into a definitive agreement to acquire six newly built, Class-A senior living communities in California for approximately $297 million. Upon stabilization in year two, we expect to achieve a mid-to-high 5% cap rate.

Outpatient Medical Investment We are expanding our outpatient medical portfolio by entering into a definitive agreement to acquire a $258 million portfolio, sourced off-market from a private owner based in Southern California. The portfolio consists of 18 properties and is 98% occupied with a weighted average remaining lease term of 8 years. We expect a mid-5% year one yield. The portfolio compliments our current outpatient medical footprint and aligns with top health systems, including Dignity Health and UPMC.

Outlook for 2019 Net income attributable to common stockholders guidance has been revised to a range of $3.06 to $3.10 per diluted share from the previous range of $3.33 to $3.43 per diluted share, primarily due to changes in projected net gains/losses/impairments and depreciation and amortization. We increased the midpoint of the guidance range of full year normalized FFO attributable to common stockholders guidance to $4.14 to $4.18 per diluted share from the previous range of $4.10 to $4.20 per diluted share. In preparing our guidance, we have updated or confirmed the following assumptions:

  • Same Store NOI: We are increasing average blended SSNOI growth guidance from 2.0% to 2.5% to 2.25% to 2.75%.
  • General and administrative expenses: We anticipate annual general and administrative expenses of approximately $130 million, including $24 million of stock-based compensation.
  • Acquisitions: 2019 earnings guidance includes only acquisitions closed or announced year to date.
  • Development: We anticipate funding approximately $183 million of additional development in 2019 relating to projects underway on September 30, 2019.
  • Dispositions: We expect disposition proceeds of $3.1 billion at a blended yield of 6.2%. This includes approximately $2.8 billion of proceeds from dispositions and loan payoffs completed to date and $0.3 billion of incremental proceeds from expected property sales and loan payoffs.

Our guidance does not include any additional investments, dispositions or capital transactions beyond those we have announced, nor any other expenses, impairments, unanticipated additions to the loan loss reserve or other additional normalizing items. Please see the Supplemental Reporting Measures section for further discussion and our definition of normalized FFO and SSNOI and the Exhibits for a reconciliation of the outlook for net income available to common stockholders to normalized FFO attributable to common stockholders. We will provide additional detail regarding our 2019 outlook and assumptions on the third quarter 2019 conference call.

Supplemental Reporting Measures We believe that net income and net income attributable to common stockholders (NICS), as defined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP), are the most appropriate earnings measurements. However, we consider funds from operations (FFO), normalized FFO, net operating income (NOI), same store NOI (SSNOI), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be useful supplemental measures of our operating performance. Excluding EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, these supplemental measures are disclosed on our pro rata ownership basis. Pro rata amounts are derived by reducing consolidated amounts for minority partners' noncontrolling ownership interests and adding our minority ownership share of unconsolidated amounts. We do not control unconsolidated investments. While we consider pro rata disclosures useful, they may not accurately depict the legal and economic implications of our joint venture arrangements and should be used with caution.

Historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with U.S. GAAP implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time as evidenced by the provision for depreciation. However, since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors and analysts have considered presentations of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient. In response, the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) created FFO as a supplemental measure of operating performance for REITs that excludes historical cost depreciation from net income. FFO attributable to common stockholders, as defined by NAREIT, means net income attributable to common stockholders, computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of real estate and impairments of depreciable assets, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated entities and noncontrolling interests. Normalized FFO attributable to common stockholders represents FFO attributable to common stockholders adjusted for certain items detailed in Exhibit 2. We believe that normalized FFO attributable to common stockholders is a useful supplemental measure of operating performance because investors and equity analysts may use this measure to compare the operating performance of the Company between periods or as compared to other REITs or other companies on a consistent basis without having to account for differences caused by unanticipated and/or incalculable items.

We define NOI as total revenues, including tenant reimbursements, less property operating expenses. Property operating expenses represent costs associated with managing, maintaining and servicing tenants for our properties. These expenses include, but are not limited to, property-related payroll and benefits, property management fees paid to operators, marketing, housekeeping, food service, maintenance, utilities, property taxes and insurance. General and administrative expenses represent costs unrelated to property operations or transaction costs. These expenses include, but are not limited to, payroll and benefits, professional services, office expenses and depreciation of corporate fixed assets. SSNOI is used to evaluate the operating performance of our properties using a consistent population which controls for changes in the composition of our portfolio. As used herein, same store is generally defined as those revenue-generating properties in the portfolio for the relevant year-over-year reporting periods. Land parcels, loans, and sub-leases as well as any properties acquired, developed/redeveloped (including major refurbishments where 20% or more of units are simultaneously taken out of commission for 30 days or more), sold or classified as held for sale during that period are excluded from the same store amounts. Properties undergoing operator transitions and/or segment transitions (except Seniors Housing Triple-net to Seniors Housing Operating with the same operator) are also excluded from the same store amounts. Normalizers include adjustments that in management's opinion are appropriate in considering SSNOI, a supplemental, non-GAAP performance measure. None of these adjustments, which may increase or decrease SSNOI, are reflected in our financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Significant normalizers (defined as any that individually exceeds 0.50% of SSNOI growth per property type) are separately disclosed and explained. We believe NOI and SSNOI provide investors relevant and useful information because they measure the operating performance of our properties at the property level on an unleveraged basis. We use NOI and SSNOI to make decisions about resource allocations and to assess the property level performance of our properties. No reconciliation of the forecasted range for SSNOI on a combined basis or by property type is included in this release because we are unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the comparable GAAP financial measure without unreasonable efforts, and we believe such reconciliation would imply a degree of precision that could be confusing or misleading to investors.

We measure our credit strength both in terms of leverage ratios and coverage ratios. The leverage ratios indicate how much of our balance sheet capitalization is related to long-term debt, net of cash and Internal Revenue Code ("IRC") Section 1031 deposits. We expect to maintain capitalization ratios and coverage ratios sufficient to maintain a capital structure consistent with our current profile. The coverage ratios are based on EBITDA which stands for earnings (net income per income statement) before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Covenants in our senior unsecured notes and primary credit facility contain financial ratios based on a definition of EBITDA that is specific to those agreements. Failure to satisfy these covenants could result in an event of default that could have a material adverse impact on our cost and availability of capital, which could in turn have a material adverse impact on our consolidated results of operations, liquidity and/or financial condition. Due to the materiality of these debt agreements and the financial covenants, we have defined Adjusted EBITDA to exclude unconsolidated entities and to include adjustments for stock-based compensation expense, provision for loan losses, gains/losses on extinguishment of debt, gains/losses/impairments on properties, gains/losses on derivatives and financial instruments, other expenses and additional other income. We believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, along with net income and cash flow provided from operating activities, are important supplemental measures because they provide additional information to assess and evaluate the performance of our operations. Our leverage ratios include net debt to Adjusted EBITDA. Net debt is defined as total long-term debt, excluding operating lease liabilities, less cash and cash equivalents and any IRC Section 1031 deposits.

Our supplemental reporting measures and similarly entitled financial measures are widely used by investors, equity and debt analysts and ratings agencies in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies. Our management uses these financial measures to facilitate internal and external comparisons to historical operating results and in making operating decisions. Additionally, they are utilized by the Board of Directors to evaluate management. The supplemental reporting measures do not represent net income or cash flow provided from operating activities as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternative measures of profitability or liquidity. Finally, the supplemental reporting measures, as defined by us, may not be comparable to similarly entitled items reported by other real estate investment trusts or other companies. Please see the exhibits for reconciliations of supplemental reporting measures and the supplemental information package for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, which is available on the Company's website (www.welltower.com), for information and reconciliations of additional supplemental reporting measures.
