Consolidated Financial Results – Second Quarter 2021
Second Quarter 2021 Results Compared to Second Quarter 2020
When comparing the second quarter of fiscal 2021 to the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the Company generated resident revenue of approximately $46.6 million compared to resident revenue of approximately $99.4 million, respectively, representing a decrease of approximately $52.8 million, or 53%. The decrease in revenue is generated from significant property dispositions throughout 2020, including: (1) the sale of two owned properties, one of which transitioned to a management agreement with the successor owner; (2) the transition of 39 leased communities to different operators in conjunction with the Company exiting its master lease agreements; and (3) the process of transferring legal ownership of 18 communities to Fannie Mae, the holder of nonrecourse debt related to such communities. Together, these actions accounted for a decrease in revenue of approximately $39.2 million. The remaining decrease was primarily due to the COVID-19 occupancy loss and small reductions in average monthly rent as a result of one-time concessions granted to new residents.
The decreases in resident revenue were partially offset by increases in management fees and community reimbursement revenue of $0.6 million and $8.3 million, respectively, which were due to the Company’s management of 15 communities during the second quarter of 2021.
Total expenses were $66.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $103.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, representing a decrease of $36.9 million, or 36%. This decrease is primarily the result of a $33.7 million decrease in operating expenses, a $6.5 million decrease in facility lease expenses, a $7.3 million decrease in depreciation expense, partially offset by a $8.3 million increase in community reimbursement expense and a $2.4 million increase in general and administrative expenses.
The quarter-over-quarter decrease in operating expenses of $33.7 million is primarily due to a $23.8 million decrease in labor and employee-related expenses, a $3.0 million decrease in food expense, a $2.5 million decrease in utilities, and a $4.4 million decrease in all other operating expenses, all of which were primarily due to the disposition of communities since the second quarter of 2020.
The increase in general and administrative expenses of $2.4 million is primarily due to $2.8 million higher employee benefits and health insurance claims, $0.9 million in travel and other expenses, $0.4 million in contract labor and consulting expenses, partially offset by reductions of approximately $1.0 million labor related expenses, and $0.7 million reduction in transaction costs related to lease amendments and terminations in the second quarter of the prior year.
The gain on extinguishment of debt of $67.2 million relates to the de-recognition of notes payable and liabilities as a result of the completion of the transition of the legal ownership of six of the Company’s communities back to Fannie Mae, the holder of the non-recourse debt related to such properties, during the three months ended June 30, 2021.
The Company reported net income and comprehensive income of $49.1 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to net loss and comprehensive loss of $12.8 million for the second quarter of 2020.
Adjusted EBITDAR for the second quarter of 2021 was $2.0 million. Adjusted EBITDAR excluding COVID-19 expenses was $2.3 million for the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted CFFO was $7.3 million and Adjusted CFFO excluding COVID-19 relief and expenses was $7.1 million for the second quarter of 2021. (See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures of Operating Performance” below).
Second Quarter 2021 Results Compared to First Quarter 2021
Resident revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 increased $1.4 million from the first quarter of fiscal 2021 as a result of an increase in consolidated average occupancy from 75.5% in the first quarter to consolidated occupancy of 78.1% in the second quarter, an increase of 260 basis points, slightly offset by a decrease in average monthly rent from $3,531 in the first quarter of 2021 to $3,518 for the second quarter of 2021. Management fee revenue decreased $0.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 compared with the first quarter of 2021 primarily due to fewer managed communities in the second quarter of 2021 than compared with the first quarter of 2021.
Operating expenses increased $0.8 million or 2.2% in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2021 as a result of increased labor, professional fees, food costs and software costs slightly offset by decreases in utilities and service contract costs.
The increase in general and administrative expenses of $1.7 million is primarily due to a $1.0 million higher employee benefits and health insurance claims, $0.4 million in insurance related costs, $0.8 million and legal, professional and transaction related costs, partially offset by reductions of approximately $0.5 million labor related expenses.
The gain on extinguishment of debt in the second quarter of 2021 was higher than the first quarter of 2021 by $20.2 million, which was driven by six community transitions in the second quarter of 2021 compared to three community transitions in the previous sequential quarter. The gain in both periods relate to the de-recognition of notes payable and liabilities as a result of the completion of the transition of the legal ownership of the Company’s communities back to Fannie Mae.
The Company reported a $10.2 million increase in net income and comprehensive income in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2021.
Strategic Investment by Conversant Capital and Proposed Rights Offering to Raise up to $152.5 Million
On July 22, 2021, subsequent to quarter end, the Company entered into an investment agreement with affiliates of Conversant Capital LLC (“Conversant”) to raise up to $152.5 million through (a) the private placement of $82.5 million convertible preferred stock to affiliates of Conversant and (b) a proposed approximately $70 million common stock rights offering to our existing stockholders to allow them to purchase Company common stock at $32.00 per share. Conversant will partially backstop the rights offering up to $42.5 million through the purchase of additional shares of preferred stock and will provide an incremental $25 million accordion for future investment, subject to certain conditions. The proposed transaction is subject to approval by the Company’s stockholders and other customary closing conditions. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the private placement and rights offering for working capital, to repay debt and to fund accretive growth projects.
The preferred stock will accrue dividends, to be paid in cash or in kind at the Company’s option, at a rate between 11% and 15% to be determined based on the participation in the rights offering. The Convertible Preferred Stock will be convertible into common shares of the Company at an initial conversion price of $40.00 per share.
Further details on the Rights Offering, including the record date and subscription period will be announced by the Company at or prior to the launch of the Rights Offering.
Conversant has also provided interim debt financing in the form of an approximately $17.3 million promissory note that is available to the Company immediately to provide funds for working capital between signing and closing of the private placement. The promissory note accrues interest in cash or in kind at a rate of 15%, provided that $2.295 million of the promissory note which is applied to the payment of fees and expenses in connection with the promissory note and the transactions will bear interest at a rate of 0% until the Outside Date (as defined in the Investment Agreement) and 15% from and after the Outside Date. The promissory note will be converted into Convertible Preferred Stock upon closing of the private placement (or paid down with the proceeds of the private placement).
Subject to the receipt of stockholder approval and the satisfaction of the other closing conditions, the Company expects the private placement and rights offering to close during the fourth quarter of 2021.
Extension of Maturing Bridge Loan
In August 2021, the Company executed a one year extension of the Company’s $40.5 million loan agreement with BBVA, which was previously scheduled to mature in December 2021 and includes the option to extend an additional six months if certain financial criteria are met. The loan agreement extension includes a waiver for non-compliance with certain financial ratios on December 31, 2020, and eliminates the compliance requirements for minimum financial ratios. The extension requires principal payments totaling $5.3 million which will be paid in installments over the term of the extension.
Community Transitions Update
During the second quarter of 2021, the Company completed the transfer of legal ownership of six of the communities back to Fannie Mae. As a result of the legal extinguishment of the debt and liabilities related to those communities, the Company recognized a $67.2 million gain on extinguishment of debt. At June 30, 2021, the Company included $112.7 million in outstanding debt and $6.5 million of accrued interest on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets related to the remaining properties and expects to extinguish all amounts when the ownership transfers are completed.
In addition to approximately $14.6 million of unrestricted cash balances on hand as of June 30, 2021, the Company’s principal sources of liquidity are expected to be cash flows from operations, the private placement of convertible preferred stock and a common stock rights offering as referenced above and additional proceeds from debt refinancings, and/or proceeds from the sale of owned assets. The Company has implemented plans, which include raising capital, and strategic and cash-preservation initiatives, all of which are designed to provide the Company with adequate liquidity to meet its obligations for at least the twelve-month period following the date its financial statements are issued. The Company’s long-term capital requirements are and will be dependent on its ability to access additional funds through the private placement of convertible preferred stock and the common stock rights offering. The Company, from time to time, considers and evaluates financial and capital raising transactions related to its portfolio including debt refinancings, purchases and sales of assets, reorganizations and other transactions. If capital were obtained through the issuance of Company equity, the issuance of Company securities would dilute the ownership of our existing stockholders and any newly issued securities may have rights, preferences, and/or privileges senior to those of our common stock. There can be no assurance that the Company will continue to generate cash flows at or above current levels or that the Company will be able to obtain the capital necessary to meet the Company’s short and longterm capital requirements.
As of June 30, 2021, the Company was in active discussions with existing and potential lending sources to refinance its bridge loan totaling $31.5 million, which is scheduled to mature in December 2021, and is currently in noncompliance with certain financial covenants. If the Company is unable to extend or refinance its indebtedness prior to scheduled maturity date or resolve the financial covenant breaches, its liquidity and financial condition could be adversely impacted. Even if the Company is able to extend or refinance its maturing bridge loans, the terms of the new financing may not be as favorable to it as the terms of the existing financing. In addition, the amount of mortgage financing available for the Company’s communities is generally dependent on their respective appraised values and performance. Decreases in the appraised values of the Company’s communities, including due to adverse changes in real estate market conditions or their performance, could result in available mortgage refinancing amounts that are less than the communities’ maturing indebtedness. The Company’s inability to obtain refinancing proceeds sufficient to cover maturing indebtedness could adversely impact its liquidity and may cause it to seek alternative sources of financing, which may be less attractive or unavailable.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures of Operating Performance
Certain of the financial measures set forth herein are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted EBITDAR and Adjusted EBITDAR excluding COVID-19 impact are financial valuation measures and Adjusted CFFO and Adjusted CFFO excluding COVID-19 impact are financial performance measures that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Non-GAAP financial measures may have material limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the Company’s results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. As a result, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for, nor superior to, financial results and measures determined or calculated in accordance with GAAP.
The Company believes that presenting Adjusted EBITDAR excluding COVID-19 impact and Adjusted CFFO
excluding COVID-19 impact is useful to investors to assess certain recent impacts of the COVID- 19 pandemic on the Company’s financial position, results of operations and the non- GAAP financial valuation and performance measures that the Company has historically presented to investors.
Adjusted EBITDAR is a valuation measure commonly used by Company management, research analysts and investors to value companies in the senior living industry. Since Adjusted EBITDAR excludes interest expense and rent expense, it allows Company management, research analysts and investors to compare the enterprise values of different companies without regard to differences in capital structures and leasing arrangements.
The Company believes Adjusted EBITDAR excluding COVID-19 impact is a valuable measure as it normalizes the impact of COVID-19 for valuation purposes.
The Company believes that Adjusted CFFO and Adjusted CFFO excluding COVID-19 impact are useful as performance measures in identifying trends in day-to-day operations because they exclude the costs associated with acquisitions and conversions and other items that do not ordinarily reflect the ongoing operating results of the Company’s primary business. Adjusted CFFO and Adjusted CFFO excluding COVID-19 impact provide indicators to management of progress in achieving both consolidated and individual business unit operating performance and are used by research analysts and investors to evaluate the performance of companies in the senior living industry.
The Company strongly urges you to review the reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDAR and Adjusted EBITDAR excluding COVID-19 impact and the reconciliation of net income/(loss) to Adjusted CFFO and Adjusted CFFO excluding COVID-19 impact, along with the Company’s consolidated balance sheets, statements of operations, and statements of cash flows.
