Announces Transactions to Strengthen Financial Foundation and Improve Performance
DALLAS, Nov. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capital Senior Living Corporation (the “Company”) (CSU), one of the nation’s largest operators of senior housing communities, announced today operating and financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.
Third Quarter 2019 Highlights
- Total move-ins for the third quarter increased 7% sequentially over the second quarter
- Physical occupancy increased in August, September and October, which is expected to provide sequential same store occupancy improvement in the fourth quarter over the third quarter
- On September 10, Brandon Ribar joined the company as Chief Operating Officer, bringing significant operational experience in healthcare and real estate
- On October 1, the Company sold two non-core independent living communities for approximately $64.8 million, generating $14.8 million in net cash proceeds and eliminating $44.4 million of mortgage debt
- On October 22, the Company entered into an agreement with HCP for the early termination of an underperforming nine-community master lease originally scheduled to mature in October 2020. The elimination of the 9 communities will result in a $13.8 million reduction in annual lease expense and annual CFFO improvement of approximately $3.1 million
“During the third quarter, we continued to transform Capital Senior Living by investing in our product, people and value proposition. While our third quarter results reflect these investments and lower revenue from longstanding negative occupancy trends, we firmly believe that we are exiting the trough period and our turnaround plan has taken hold as occupancy trends are now improving. We achieved 7% growth in sequential move-ins and, for the first time since mid-2018, move-ins are outpacing move-outs. We expect to build on these improvements as we continue executing our plan,” said Kimberly S. Lody, President and Chief Executive Officer.
“We also welcomed Brandon Ribar as our Chief Operating Officer during the quarter. Brandon’s impressive operational and financial track record in the senior housing and skilled nursing sectors will be instrumental to the continued execution of our turnaround plan. Our strategy is centered on establishing a foundation for long-term value creation. We are confident that the transformative changes to improve the quality of our people, processes and product have established the fundamentals necessary for improved performance in 2020 and beyond,” Lody concluded.
Operating and Financial Summary (all amounts in this operating and financial summary exclude two communities undergoing lease-up or significant renovation and conversion, unless otherwise noted; also, see Non-GAAP Financial Measures below and reconciliation of Non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure on the final page of this release):
- Revenue in the third quarter of 2019, including all communities, was $111.1 million, a $4.5 million, or 3.9%, decrease, from the third quarter of 2018.
- Revenue for same communities, which excludes two communities undergoing lease-up or significant renovation and conversion and the Company’s two communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey, was $108.6 million in the third quarter of 2019, a decrease of 3.8%, versus the third quarter of 2018.
- Occupancy for all communities was 81.3%, a decline of 120 basis points from the second quarter of 2019, and a decrease of 280 basis points from the third quarter of 2018. Occupancy for same communities was 82.3% in the third quarter of 2019, a decrease of 130 basis points from the second quarter of 2019, and a decrease of 340 basis points when compared with the third quarter of 2018.
- Average monthly rent for all communities was $3,632, an increase of $4 per occupied unit, or 0.1%, from the third quarter of 2018. Average monthly rent for same communities was $3,632, an increase of $7 per occupied unit, or 0.2%, from the third quarter of 2018. Average monthly rent in the third quarter of 2019 was flat with the second quarter of 2019 for all communities and same communities.
- Income (loss) from operations, including all communities, was $(8.1) million in the third quarter of 2019, versus $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2018.

- Adjusted EBITDAR was $27.3 million in the third quarter of 2019 compared with $36.1 million in the comparable quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDAR is a financial valuation measure, rather than a financial performance measure, used by management and others to evaluate the value of companies in the senior living industry.
- Adjusted Cash from Facility Operations (“CFFO”) was $(1.2) million in the third quarter of 2019, compared with $8.1 million in the third quarter of 2018.
Carey P. Hendrickson, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, said: “We are strengthening our financial foundation through the sale of two non-core communities and an accretive early termination of a master lease. We believe that together these transactions work to optimize our asset portfolio and improve our financial position. Consistent with our normal business practices, the Company continues to be engaged in various similar activities, including the marketing of a limited number of additional assets for potential divestiture and the refinancing of existing owned assets.”
Sale of Senior Living Communities
On October 1, 2019, the Company closed on the sale of two non-core communities located in Springfield, Missouri, and Peoria, Illinois, at a purchase price of $64.8 million. The transaction resulted in approximately $14.8 million in net cash proceeds. The two communities consisted of 314 independent living units and had CFFO contribution of $2.5 million in 2019 year-to-date. With the sale of these two communities, the Company also eliminated $44.4 million of mortgage debt and avoided significant near-term capital expenditures.
Transition of Lease Portfolio
On October 22, 2019, the Company entered into an agreement for the early termination of an underperforming nine-property master lease with HCP. The nine communities are part of a triple net master lease scheduled to mature in October 2020. Four of the communities will transition to new operators as early as January 15, 2020, and five communities will be marketed for sale with closings expected in the first half of 2020. These nine communities currently have approximately $13.8 million of annual cash lease expense that will be eliminated upon completion of the transitions and sales, with annual CFFO improvement of approximately $3.1 million. The Company will pay an early termination fee of $1.0 million to HCP upon the completion of the transitions. The Company will have one remaining six-property master lease with HCP that matures in 2026 which is unaffected by this transaction.
Financial Results - Third Quarter
For the third quarter of 2019, the Company reported revenue of $111.1 million, compared with revenue of $115.7 million in the third quarter of 2018. Revenue for consolidated communities excluding the two communities undergoing significant renovation and conversion, was $109.8 million, a decrease of 3.9%, in the third quarter of 2019 when compared with the third quarter of 2018.
Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2019 were $80.4 million, an increase of $4.2 million, or 5.5%, from the third quarter of 2018. Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2019 included a $0.1 million business interruption insurance credit related to the Company’s two Houston communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey compared to a $1.3 million credit in the third quarter of 2018. Business interruption coverage ended in July 2019. The third quarter of 2019 also includes a $1.0 million insurance charge related to certain casualty claims.
General and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2019 were $7.6 million versus $5.6 million in the third quarter of 2018. Excluding transaction and conversion costs in both periods (including $0.7 million related to separation and placement costs associated with the Company’s CEO and COO positions), general and administrative expenses increased $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2019 versus the third quarter of 2018, mostly related to higher healthcare claims expense. As a percentage of revenues under management, general and administrative expenses, excluding transaction and conversion costs, were 5.6% in the third quarter of 2019.
Loss from operations for the third quarter of 2019 was $8.1 million. This compares with income from operations of $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2018.
The Company’s Non-GAAP financial measures exclude two communities that are undergoing significant renovation and conversion (see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below).
Adjusted EBITDAR for the third quarter of 2019 was $27.3 million, compared with $36.1 million in the third quarter of 2018. Adjusted CFFO was $(1.2) million in the third quarter of 2019 and $8.1 million in the third quarter of 2018. CFFO for the third quarter of 2019 includes a negative net impact of $0.5 million related to the Company’s adoption of the new lease accounting standard (“ASC 842”) effective January 1, 2019. There was no impact on Adjusted EBITDAR related to the adoption of the new lease standard.
Same community results exclude two previously noted communities undergoing lease-up or significant renovation and conversion, as well as the two Houston communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey which are also in lease-up. Same-community results also exclude certain conversion costs.
Same-community revenue in the third quarter of 2019 decreased 3.8% versus the third quarter of 2018.
Same-community operating expenses increased 2.4% in the third quarter of 2019 versus the third quarter of 2018. Same store labor costs, including benefits, increased 0.2% in the third quarter, food costs decreased 1.1% and utilities decreased 0.1%. Same-community net operating income decreased 15.1% in the third quarter of 2019 when compared with the same period a year ago.
Capital expenditures were $6.5 million for the third quarter of 2019.
The Company ended the third quarter with $20.8 million of cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash. As of September 30, 2019, the Company financed its owned communities with mortgages totaling $967.4 million, at interest rates averaging 4.8%. The majority of the Company’s debt is at fixed interest rates excluding two bridge loans totaling approximately $76 million, one of which matures in July 2020 and the other in October 2021, and approximately $50 million of long-term variable rate debt under the Company’s Master Credit Facility. The earliest maturity date for the Company’s fixed-rate debt is in 2022.
The Company’s cash on hand and cash flow from operations are expected to be sufficient for working capital and to fund the Company’s capital expenditures.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures of Operating Performance
Adjusted EBITDAR is a financial valuation measure and Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) and Adjusted CFFO 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 our 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.
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 that Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) and Adjusted CFFO 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 our primary business. Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) and Adjusted CFFO 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 loss to Adjusted EBITDAR and the reconciliation of net income/(loss) to Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) and Adjusted CFFO, along with the Company’s consolidated balance sheets, statements of operations, and statements of cash flows. This is included on the last page of this press release.
