Medical Properties Trust, Inc. Reports First Quarter Results

Nachrichtenquelle: Business Wire (engl.)
29.04.2021, 14:00  |  146   |   |   

Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (the “Company” or “MPT”) (NYSE: MPW) today announced financial and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021 as well as certain events occurring subsequent to quarter end.

  • Net income of $0.28 and Normalized Funds from Operations (“NFFO”) of $0.42 for the 2021 first quarter on a per diluted share basis, well in line with portfolio run-rate guidance;
  • Closed in January on the previously disclosed £800 million real estate investment in behavioral health properties in the UK operated by Priory Group (“Priory”);
  • Issued £850 million in senior notes due 2026 and 2030 at a blended rate of 2.9% with proceeds used to permanently fund the Priory acquisitions;
  • Completed a follow-on equity offering generating net proceeds of $711 million and sold approximately 8.0 million common shares from early March through the Company’s “at-the-market” program for additional net proceeds of approximately $173 million;
  • Hospital tenants uniformly reporting continued strong operating and financial performance.

“The rapid pace of accretive growth we have created in recent years is showing no signs of slowing,” said Edward K. Aldag, Jr., MPT’s Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer. “The positive attention brought to the need for hospitals during the COVID pandemic worldwide, and the essential role of MPT’s tenants has never been so clear. Demand for our capital is strong, and our proven ability to execute large, complex transactions continues to give us a strong competitive advantage in this rapidly expanding market.”

Mr. Aldag continued, “Our operators are well-capitalized, and their fundamentals returned to very close to normalized levels more than nine months ago and remain there today. We have observed that these levels of operations are consistent with recently reported quarterly results of the top publicly held operators in the nation.”

Included in the financial tables accompanying this press release is information about the Company’s assets and liabilities, net income, and reconciliations of net income to NFFO, all on a basis comparable to 2020 results, and reconciliations of total assets to pro forma total gross assets and total revenues to total adjusted revenues.

PORTFOLIO UPDATE

During and subsequent to the first quarter, MPT continued to execute on accretive acquisitions.

MPT expects to replace the £800 million Priory real estate loan with sale-leaseback transactions involving 35 properties by the end of the second quarter, at which time the Company will begin to recognize a GAAP investment yield of 8.6%.

Through today, MPT made additional investments of approximately $158 million and $335 million, respectively, in its tenants Swiss Medical Network and Steward Health Care System (“Steward”). Swiss Medical, the Company’s tenant through its Infracore investment, is the second largest private operator of hospitals in Switzerland, a nation known for world-class healthcare delivery and an affluent, aging population. At an attractive investment entry point, MPT stands to benefit from greater alignment with Infracore and Swiss Medical, additional insight into the Swiss hospital system, and desirable real estate opportunities as Swiss Medical continues to consolidate a fragmented hospital landscape.

Proceeds of the $335 million loan to Steward were used to redeem a similarly sized convertible loan from Steward’s former private equity sponsor. Terms include opportunities for attractive participation in the value of Steward’s growth as it demonstrates fundamental success consistent with recent reports from public hospital operators. Pursuant to its existing 9.9% equity interest in Steward and a direct realization of the operational strength noted above, MPT received cash distributions during the quarter of $11.0 million.

The Company has pro forma total gross assets of approximately $20.9 billion, including $15.2 billion in general acute care hospitals, $2.1 billion in inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, $1.7 billion in behavioral health facilities, $0.3 billion in long-term acute care hospitals, and $0.3 billion in freestanding emergency room and urgent care properties. MPT’s portfolio, pro forma for the transactions described herein, includes 425 properties representing roughly 44,000 licensed beds across the United States and in Germany, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Australia, and Colombia. The properties are leased to or mortgaged by 51 hospital operating companies. MPT continues to work with existing and new operators in the U.S. and abroad on numerous opportunities.

OPERATING RESULTS AND OUTLOOK

Net income for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $164 million (or $0.28 per diluted share) compared to $81 million (or $0.15 per diluted share) in the year earlier period.

NFFO for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $244 million ($0.42 per diluted share) compared to $191 million ($0.37 per diluted share) in the year earlier period.

Based on year-to-date transactions, including the Priory sale-leaseback transaction, along with an assumed capital structure resulting in a net debt to EBITDA ratio between 5.0 and 6.0 times, MPT expects an annual run-rate of $1.14 to $1.18 per diluted share for net income and $1.72 to $1.76 per diluted share for NFFO. Included in the annual run-rate estimate but not included in annualized actual results for the first quarter are timing adjustments related to investment and capital markets transactions closed during the quarter, the annualized difference between the 8.6% Priory GAAP lease rate and the current loan interest rate, and the aggregate earnings contribution from two hospitals under development and various expansion projects where rent has not yet commenced. While interest income from the £250 million non-real estate acquisition loan related to the Priory transaction was included in first quarter actual results, it is not included in annual run-rate guidance due to its temporary nature.

These estimates do not include the effects, if any, of unexpected real estate operating costs, changes in accounting pronouncements, litigation costs, debt refinancing costs, acquisition costs, currency exchange rate movements, interest rate hedging activities, write-offs of straight-line rent or other non-recurring or unplanned transactions. Moreover, these estimates do not provide for the impact on MPT or its tenants and borrowers from the global COVID-19 pandemic. These estimates may change if the Company acquires or sells assets in amounts that are different from estimates, market interest rates change, debt is refinanced, new shares are issued, additional debt is incurred, other operating expenses vary, income from equity investments vary from expectations, or existing leases or loans do not perform in accordance with their terms.

Notes:

(A) Certain line items above (such as depreciation and amortization) include our share of such income/expense from unconsolidated joint ventures. These amounts are included with the activity of all of our equity interests in the "Earnings from equity interests" line on the consolidated statements of income.

 

(B) Investors and analysts following the real estate industry utilize funds from operations, or FFO, as a supplemental performance measure. FFO, reflecting the assumption that real estate asset values rise or fall with market conditions, principally adjusts for the effects of GAAP depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, which assumes that the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time. We compute FFO in accordance with the definition provided by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or Nareit, which represents net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (losses) on sales of real estate and impairment charges on real estate assets, plus real estate depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

 

In addition to presenting FFO in accordance with the Nareit definition, we also disclose normalized FFO, which adjusts FFO for items that relate to unanticipated or non-core events or activities or accounting changes that, if not noted, would make comparison to prior period results and market expectations less meaningful to investors and analysts. We believe that the use of FFO, combined with the required GAAP presentations, improves the understanding of our operating results among investors and the use of normalized FFO makes comparisons of our operating results with prior periods and other companies more meaningful. While FFO and normalized FFO are relevant and widely used supplemental measures of operating and financial performance of REITs, they should not be viewed as a substitute measure of our operating performance since the measures do not reflect either depreciation and amortization costs or the level of capital expenditures and leasing costs necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties, which can be significant economic costs that could materially impact our results of operations. FFO and normalized FFO should not be considered an alternative to net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) as indicators of our results of operations or to cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of our liquidity.

 

We calculate adjusted funds from operations, or AFFO, by subtracting from or adding to normalized FFO (i) non-cash revenue, (ii) non-cash share-based compensation expense, and (iii) amortization of deferred financing costs. AFFO is an operating measurement that we use to analyze our results of operations based on the receipt, rather than the accrual, of our rental revenue and on certain other adjustments. We believe that this is an important measurement because our leases generally have significant contractual escalations of base rents and therefore result in recognition of rental income that is not collected until future periods, and costs that are deferred or are non-cash charges. Our calculation of AFFO may not be comparable to AFFO or similarly titled measures reported by other REITs. AFFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income (calculated pursuant to GAAP) as an indicator of our results of operations or to cash flow from operating activities (calculated pursuant to GAAP) as an indicator of our liquidity.

(2) Includes $53.6 million and $65.5 million of unfunded amounts on ongoing development projects and $60.5 million and $100.8 million of unfunded amounts on capital improvement projects and development projects that have commenced rent, as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.

(4) Includes cash available on-hand plus cash generated from activities subsequent to period-end including proceeds from new debt, equity or loan repayments, if any.

 

(5) Pro forma total gross assets is total assets before accumulated depreciation/amortization and assumes all real estate commitments on new investments and unfunded amounts on development deals and commenced capital improvement projects are fully funded using cash on hand (if available). We believe pro forma total gross assets is useful to investors as it provides a more current view of our portfolio and allows for a better understanding of our concentration levels as our commitments close and our other commitments are fully funded.
