COVID-19 Update

SHO Portfolio Virtually all of our communities are currently accepting new residents, resulting in an increase in move-in activity and occupancy rates in the most recent months. Month end occupancy rates are as follows:



March 2021


April 2021


May 2021


June 2021

Spot occupancy (1)


72.6

%


73.2

%


73.6

%


74.6

%

Sequential occupancy change (2)

%

%















(1) Spot occupancy represents approximate month end occupancy at our share for 592 properties in operation as of December 31, 2020,
     including unconsolidated properties but excluding acquisitions, executed dispositions and development conversions since this date.

(2) Sequential occupancy changes are based on actual spot occupancy and may not recalculate due to rounding.

 

On a month-to-date basis, as of July 23, 2021, SHO portfolio occupancy has increased approximately 40 bps. Occupancy continued to strengthen in the U.S. and U.K. with gains of approximately 60 bps and 30 bps, respectively, while occupancy in Canada remained flat over the same period.

In 2020, applications were made for amounts under Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the Provider Relief Fund related to our SHO portfolio. During the second quarter, we received pro rata Provider Relief Funds of approximately $5 million, which was recognized as a reduction to COVID-19 costs within property operating expenses.

Our share of property-level expenses associated with the COVID-19 pandemic relating to our total SHO portfolio, net of reimbursements including Provider Relief Funds and similar programs in the U.K. and Canada, totaled a benefit of approximately $1 million and $24 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively, as compared to an expense of approximately $37 million and $44 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively. These costs included higher labor expenses coupled with expenditures related to procurement of personal protective equipment and other supplies, net of any reimbursements. Such amounts had a favorable impact on net income attributable to common stockholders and normalized FFO per diluted share of less than $0.01 and $0.06, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively, and an unfavorable impact of $0.09 and $0.11 per diluted share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively.

Capital Activity and Liquidity In June, we announced an expanded $4.7 billion unsecured credit facility, including an expanded $4.0 billion unsecured revolving line of credit, which replaced our existing line of credit of $3.0 billion. The revolving line of credit will bear interest at LIBOR plus 77.5 bps based on our current credit ratings, which represents a 5 bps improvement from pricing under our previous unsecured revolving credit line. In addition, the revolving facility permits a reduction in the interest rate upon meeting certain reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. We have two existing facilities which remain outstanding: a $500 million USD term loan and a $250 million CAD term loan.

Inclusive of available borrowings under our line of credit, cash and cash equivalents, and IRC Section 1031 deposits, at June 30, 2021, we have $4.8 billion of near-term available liquidity and no material senior unsecured note maturities until 2024. Since the beginning of the second quarter, we sold 20.1 million shares of common stock under our ATM program via forward sale agreements at an initial weighted average price of $79.69 per share. These forward ATM sales are expected to generate gross proceeds of approximately $1.6 billion, of which 2.8 million shares were settled during the second quarter for $212 million of gross proceeds. Since the beginning of the year, we sold 22.3 million shares of common stock under our ATM program via forward sale agreements which are expected to generate gross proceeds of approximately $1.8 billion, of which 5.0 million shares have been settled resulting in $372 million of gross proceeds.

On June 28, 2021 we completed the issuance of $500 million senior unsecured notes bearing interest at 2.05% with a maturity date of January 2029. Proceeds from the offering were used to pay down borrowings under our revolving line of credit. During the quarter we extinguished $1.6 billion of debt, including $674 million in senior unsecured notes due 2023, $860 million pay down of the term loan due 2022 and $25 million of secured debt at a yield of 3.31%.

Dividend On July 29, 2021, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 of $0.61 per share. This dividend, which will be paid on August 19, 2021 to stockholders of record on August 12, 2021, will be our 201st consecutive quarterly cash dividend. The declaration and payment of future quarterly dividends remains subject to review and approval by the Board of Directors.

Quarterly Investment and Disposition Activity In the second quarter, we completed $1.5 billion of pro rata gross investments including $1.4 billion in acquisitions and loan funding as well as $142 million in development funding. We converted four development projects for an aggregate pro rata amount of $196 million. Additionally, during the quarter we completed pro rata property dispositions and loan payoffs of $541 million.

Notable Investment Activity Completed or Announced During the Quarter

Safanad/HC-One Loan Funding and Equity Investment As previously announced, we provided £540 million ($750 million) of senior loan financing and a £30 million ($42 million) delayed facility to affiliates of Safanad, a global real estate and private equity firm, as part of the successful recapitalization of its investment in HC-One Group. The recapitalization will enhance HC-One's ability to meet the complex care needs of the communities it serves and reinforces its commitment to its team members at all levels of the organization, while enabling HC-One to continue to modernize and enhance its portfolio of care homes. The loan has a 5-year term and is fully collateralized by the shares and assets of the HC-One Group, including its underlying property portfolio of owned assets across the United Kingdom. Welltower's last pound basis on the initial £540 million tranche is approximately £40,000 per unit.

Additionally, we will have the ability to participate in the anticipated recovery in the U.K. seniors housing sector through both warrants and an equity investment. The transaction is expected to generate a low-to-mid teens unlevered IRR.

StoryPoint Senior Living During the quarter, we acquired three combination independent living, assisted living and memory care communities located in the Midwest with an average age of four years for $102 million. The communities will be operated by StoryPoint under a new triple-net master lease. The transaction is expected to generate an unlevered IRR in the high-single digit range.

Pathway to Living During the quarter, we formed a new RIDEA relationship with Illinois-based Pathway to Living, an established operator of seniors housing communities, and acquired 22 properties in Illinois and Ohio for a pro rata investment amount of $100 million or $93,000 per unit, representing a substantial discount to replacement cost. In July, we closed on a second tranche of seven seniors housing properties from the same seller for a pro rata purchase price of approximately $50 million which were added to the existing RIDEA relationship with Frontier Management. The total transaction of approximately $147 million is expected to generate a low-double digit unlevered IRR.

Oakmont Senior Living During the quarter, we expanded our relationship with Oakmont Senior Living through the acquisition of Ivy Living at Otay Ranch, a combination assisted living and memory care community in San Diego, California for a pro rata purchase price of $35 million. Subsequent to quarter end, we entered into a strategic partnership with Oakmont Management Group that is expected to expand the size of Welltower and Oakmont's existing portfolio, which currently spans nine assisted living and memory care communities. The partnership will include acquisition opportunities and an exclusive, long-term development agreement. Welltower and Oakmont have agreed to a strongly aligned RIDEA 3.0 management contract.

Norman Regional Health System During the quarter, we expanded our relationship with Bremner Real Estate and began construction on the first building in a multi-phased expansion of the Norman Regional Health System. The total development cost for phase one of the multi-phased expansion is expected to be in excess of $100 million and will consist of 181,000 rentable square feet of class A outpatient medical facilities.

ProMedica Joint Venture Disposition As previously announced, the Welltower and ProMedica joint venture intends to divest a 25 property portfolio of non-strategic skilled nursing facilities for $265 million and is expected to generate an unlevered IRR of 22% over the 2.5 year ownership period of the assets. The properties, which were acquired through the formation of the Welltower/ProMedica joint venture in 2018, are in eight states and have an average age of 41 years. During the second quarter, we completed the disposition of 8 properties for pro rata proceeds of $47 million and a gain on sale of $12 million. The sale of the remaining properties are expected to close during the second half of 2021.

Long-Term/Post-Acute Medical Disposition During the quarter, we completed the disposition of three properties for $75 million resulting in a gain on sale of $31 million, further reducing long-term/post-acute care exposure.

Holiday Retirement On June 21, 2021, we announced that we entered into a definitive agreement to acquire a portfolio of 86 seniors housing properties currently owned by Holiday Retirement for $1.58 billion. The portfolio is valued at $152,000 per unit, representing a discount to estimated replacement cost in excess of 30%. Atria Senior Living will assume operations of the portfolio following its acquisition of the Holiday management company (also announced on June 21, 2021). The transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to Welltower's normalized funds from operations per diluted share and has significant growth upside through the post-COVID recovery in seniors housing fundamentals, implementation of Atria's technologically advanced operating platform and capital investment in assets.

Genesis Healthcare Update As previously announced, we entered into a definitive agreement to execute a series of mutually beneficial transactions resulting in the substantial exit of Welltower's operating relationship with Genesis Healthcare. The status of these transactions is as follows:

  • The transition of 9 PowerBack facilities to an 80/20 joint venture with ProMedica, which occurred in April and generated pro rata proceeds of $58 million.
  • As of July 1, 2021, operations have transitioned for 28 properties with a remaining seven expected to transition before year end. The sales of these properties are expected to close during the second half of the year.

Other Transactions During the second quarter, we acquired four seniors housing communities for $107 million which will be operated by existing operators Sunrise Senior Living, Chartwell Residences, Sparrow Living and a new relationship with Enclave Companies. Additionally, a first mortgage loan previously extended by Welltower in August 2020 was repaid in full for $178 million during the quarter.

Notable July Investment Activity

Aspect Health Acquisition In July, we formed a new 95/5 joint venture with Aspect Health and simultaneously acquired six medical office buildings in infill markets across the New York City metropolitan area for a pro rata investment amount of $99 million. The class-A portfolio has a weighted average remaining lease term of 12 years. With the transaction, we will have a 10-year exclusivity agreement with Aspect Health which allows the joint venture to finance future development projects in the New York City metropolitan area.

Outlook for Third Quarter 2021 The degree to which the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our operations and those of our operators and tenants, including the variability in the timing of recovery, is dependent on a variety of factors and remains highly uncertain. Accordingly, we are only introducing earnings guidance for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 and expect to report net income attributable to common stockholders in a range of $0.44 to $0.49 per diluted share and normalized FFO attributable to common stockholders in a range of $0.78 to $0.83 per diluted share. In preparing our guidance, we have made the following assumptions:

  • Provider Relief Funds: Our third quarter guidance does not include the recognition of any Provider Relief Funds which may be received during the quarter.
  • SHO Portfolio Occupancy: Midpoint of normalized FFO guidance assumes a continuation of recent trends resulting in an approximate increase of 190 bps through the third quarter.
  • General and Administrative Expenses: We anticipate full year general and administrative expenses to be approximately $132 million to $137 million and stock-based compensation expense to be approximately $21 million.
  • Investments: Our third quarter 2021 earnings guidance includes only those acquisitions closed or announced to date. Furthermore, no transitions or restructures beyond those announced to date are included.
  • Development: We anticipate funding approximately $288 million of development in 2021 relating to projects underway on June 30, 2021.
  • Dispositions: We expect pro rata disposition proceeds of $1.5 billion at a blended yield of 8.1% in 2021. This includes approximately $758 million in proceeds from dispositions and loan payoffs completed through June 30, 2021 and $735 million of incremental expected proceeds related to properties classified as held-for-sale as of June 30, 2021.

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 Exhibit 3 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 third quarter outlook and assumptions on the second quarter 2021 conference call.

Telephone access will be available by dialing (844) 467-7115 or (409) 983-9837 (international). For those unable to listen to the call live, a taped rebroadcast will be available beginning two hours after completion of the call through August 13, 2021.

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, NOI, SSNOI, REVPOR and SS REVPOR to be useful supplemental measures of our operating performance. 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.

No reconciliation of forecasted normalized FFO attributable to common stockholders per diluted share accretion or estimate of forecasted impact on net income attributable to common stockholders per diluted share for the announced Holiday Retirement acquisition is provided herein because we are unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the comparable GAAP financial measures without unreasonable efforts primarily due to the anticipated timing of receipt of draft third-party real estate appraisals and valuations. We believe such reconciliation would imply a degree of precision that could be confusing or misleading to investors.

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. Acquisitions and development conversions are included in the same store amounts five full quarters after acquisition or being placed into service. Land parcels, loans and sub-leases, as well as any properties sold or classified as held for sale during the period, are excluded from the same store amounts. Redeveloped properties (including major refurbishments of a Seniors Housing Operating property where 20% or more of units are simultaneously taken out of commission for 30 days or more or Outpatient Medical properties undergoing a change in intended use) are excluded from the same store amounts until five full quarters post completion of the redevelopment. Properties undergoing operator transitions and/or segment transitions are also excluded from the same store amounts until five full quarters post completion of the operator transition or segment transition. In addition, properties significantly impacted by force majeure, acts of God or other extraordinary adverse events are excluded from same store amounts until five full quarters after the properties are placed back into service. SSNOI excludes non-cash NOI and includes adjustments to present consistent property ownership percentages and to translate Canadian properties and UK properties using a consistent exchange rate. 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 exceed 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.

REVPOR represents the average revenues generated per occupied room per month at our Seniors Housing Operating properties. It is calculated as our pro rata version of total resident fees and services revenues from the income statement divided by average monthly occupied room days. SS REVPOR is used to evaluate the REVPOR performance of our properties under a consistent population which eliminates changes in the composition of our portfolio. It is based on the same pool of properties used for SSNOI and includes any revenue normalizations used for SSNOI. We use REVPOR and SS REVPOR to evaluate the revenue-generating capacity and profit potential of our Seniors Housing Operating portfolio independent of fluctuating occupancy rates. They are also used in comparison against industry and competitor statistics, if known, to evaluate the quality of our Seniors Housing Operating portfolio.

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 June 30, 2021, which is available on the Company's website (www.welltower.com), for information and reconciliations of additional supplemental reporting measures.
