(1)  Spot occupancy represents approximate month end occupancy for properties in operation as of February 29, 2020, including unconsolidated properties but excluding acquisitions, executed dispositions and development conversions since this date.

Month-to-date, through October 23, 2020 , total SHO portfolio occupancy declined by approximately 30 basis points through October 23, 2020 . Consequently, we anticipate total SHO portfolio spot occupancy to decline 75 to 125 basis points in the fourth quarter relative to September 30 , 2020. 

Our share of property-level expenses associated with the COVID-19 pandemic relating to our total SHO portfolio, net of reimbursements, totaled approximately $17 million and $61 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 , respectively. These costs included higher labor costs coupled with expenditures related to procurement of personal protective equipment and other supplies, net of any reimbursements. Such expenses had an unfavorable impact on net income attributable to common stockholders and normalized FFO per diluted share of $0.04 and $0.15 for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2020 , respectively.

In September applications were made for Provider Relief Funds related to our SHO portfolio following the announcement from the Department of Health and Human Services that it expanded the eligibility of the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund to include assisted living facilities. Our share of the Phase 2 general distribution is expected to be approximately $45 million and we anticipate receiving these funds in the fourth quarter. However, we continue to expect total SHO portfolio expenses to remain elevated during the pandemic and potentially beyond as these additional health and safety measures become standard practice.

As of October 23, 2020 , approximately 94% of our SHO communities reported no confirmed cases during the trailing two weeks, 5% have reported 1-2 cases and 1% have reported 3+ cases.

Rent Collections  During the third quarter, we collected approximately 98% of rent due from operators under Triple-net lease agreements (primarily seniors housing and post-acute care facilities). In the Outpatient Medical ("OM") segment we have either collected or approved short term deferrals for over 99% of rent due in the third quarter, consisting of 97% cash collections and 2% short term deferrals. In most cases deferred rent represents two months of rent with repayment generally expected by the end of the year. Furthermore, collections of deferred rent due in the third quarter under executed deferrals was over 99%. 

Genesis Healthcare Update  As a result of Genesis Healthcare noting substantial doubt as to their ability to continue as a going concern we have written off all existing straight-line rent receivable balances and revised our method of revenue recognition to a cash-basis accounting method from a straight-line accounting method, effective July 1, 2020 . Genesis Healthcare is current on all obligations to Welltower through October.

Capital Activity and Liquidity  On September 30, 2020 , we had $2.0 billion of cash and cash equivalents, inclusive of $381 million of IRC section 1031 deposits, and $3.0 billion of available borrowing capacity under our unsecured revolving credit facility. During the quarter we extinguished or defeased $855 million of debt, including $426 million in unsecured bonds due 2023, a $140 million pay down of the term loan due 2022 and $289 million of secured debt, of which $112 million was defeased and subsequently extinguished in October.

Inclusive of available borrowings under our line of credit and cash and cash equivalents, at October 26, 2020 , we have $5.2 billion of near-term available liquidity and no material senior unsecured note maturities until 2023.

Dividend  On October 28, 2020 the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 of $0.61 per share. This dividend, which will be paid on November 19, 2020 , to stockholders of record on November 10, 2020 , will be our 198th 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 third quarter, we completed $273 million of pro rata gross investments including $96 million in development funding with an expected stable yield of 7.5% and $177 million of loan funding at a yield of 7.3%. During the quarter, we converted two development and expansion projects for an aggregate pro rata amount of $38 million and an expected stable yield of 8.3%. Additionally, we completed pro rata property dispositions of $1.4 billion at a 5.3% yield, demonstrating strong demand and liquidity for our high-quality assets through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Notable Portfolio Transactions

U.S. Seniors Housing Operating Portfolio Disposition  As previously announced, in September we sold an 11 property SHO portfolio located in California , Washington and Nevada for $702 million , representing a 5.1% cap rate on March TTM NOI (with average portfolio occupancy during that time of 96%) and 3.6% on August annualized NOI or, $466,000 per unit. In conjunction with the transaction, we recognized a gain on the sale of $313 million . The portfolio was held in a joint venture in which we owned 80% and a third-party owner-operator owned 20% and managed the portfolio under a legacy RIDEA contract.

Invesco Outpatient Medical Joint Venture  As previously announced, we expanded our partnership with Invesco Real Estate ("IRE"), a global real estate investment manager. Our most recent joint venture with IRE comprises a portfolio of 20 outpatient medical properties previously majority-owned by Welltower, spanning 1.0 million square feet across five states for a total transaction price of $402 million . The average age of the properties is 16 years, with roughly half of the portfolio affiliated with health systems. Through the partnership, we will retain a 15% economic interest in the portfolio along with leasing and property management responsibilities. In addition to the joint venture portfolio, rights of first refusal ("ROFR") were exercised for two additional properties at a sales price of $25 million . The transactions will close in two tranches, with the first tranche consisting of 13 properties having closed in late-September for pro rata proceeds of $221 million and a gain on sale of $54 million . The remaining seven properties, along with the two ROFR properties expected to close in the fourth quarter for $144 million .

U.K. Outpatient Medical Disposition  During the third quarter, we disposed of four properties, three wholly-owned private acute surgery centers and one cancer treatment center, in the United Kingdom within our Outpatient Medical segment for pro rata proceeds of $334 million at a yield of 6.2% and recognized a gain on the sale of $42 million .

Kayne Anderson Real Estate Outpatient Medical Portfolio Disposition  As previously announced, during the second quarter, we reached an agreement to sell a portfolio of 27 OM properties to Kayne Anderson Real Estate ("KA"), one of the world's preeminent private equity firms, and closed the first tranche of 17 properties. During the third quarter, we sold nine additional properties to KA for pro rata proceeds of $173 million at a 5.4% yield and recognized a gain on sale of $51 million . The final property sale is expected to close in the fourth quarter for $41 million . Additionally, the sale of one OM property pursuant to a ROFR also closed in the third quarter for pro rata proceeds of $48 million . All OM properties were previously 100% owned by us.

Post Quarter Portfolio Transactions

StoryPoint Senior Living Acquisition  We entered into an agreement to acquire a portfolio of 25 assisted living and memory care communities located throughout the Midwest. In October, we closed on the first tranche of 11 properties for $90 million . The communities will be operated by StoryPoint under a new triple-net master lease.

Northbridge Senior Housing Disposition   In October, we sold a portfolio of SHO properties operated by Northbridge for $200 million , representing a 4.9% cap rate on March TTM NOI (with average portfolio occupancy during that time of 88%) or, $395,000 per unit. The six property portfolio, located in Massachusetts , has an average age of 19 years and comprises 507 units. The portfolio was previously held in a RIDEA structure in which we owned 95% and Northbridge owned a 5% interest. Following the sale, we retained a 20% interest in the portfolio with the remaining 80% owned by a fund co-managed by Taurus Investment Holdings and Northbridge Asset Management. The properties continue to be managed by Northbridge . The general partners have the option to purchase our 20% interest over the next twelve months at a fixed price.

To participate in the webcast, log on to www.welltower.com 15 minutes before the call to download the necessary software. Replays will be available for 90 days.

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. 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.

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 ratios are based on EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA is defined as earnings (net income per income statement) before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA excluding unconsolidated entities and including 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, additional other income and other impairment charges. We believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, along with net income, 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, 2020 , which is available on the Company's website ( www.welltower.com ), for information and reconciliations of additional supplemental reporting measures.
