Omega Announces Fourth Quarter 2013 Financial Results; Adjusted FFO of $0.65 Per Share and $569 Million of New Investments for the Fourth Quarter

HUNT VALLEY, Md. --(Business Wire)--

Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. (NYSE:OHI) (the "Company" or "Omega") today announced its results of operations for the three- and twelve-month period ended December 31, 2013. The Company also reported Funds From Operations ("FFO") available to common stockholders for the three-month period ended December 31, 2013 of $79.9 million or $0.65 per common share. The $79.9 million of FFO available to common stockholders for the fourth quarter of 2013 includes $1.4 million of one-time revenue, $1.5 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense, a $0.2 million adjustment (recovery) related to provision for uncollectible notes and $0.1 million of acquisition related costs. FFO is presented in accordance with the guidelines for the calculation and reporting of FFO issued by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"). Normalized or Adjusted FFO was $0.65 per common share for the three-month period ended December 31, 2013. FFO and Adjusted FFO are non-GAAP financial measures. Normalized or Adjusted FFO is calculated as FFO available to common stockholders excluding the impact of certain non-cash items and certain items of revenue or expense, including, but not limited to: acquisition related costs, refinancing interest expenses, provisions for uncollectible accounts receivable, stock-based compensation expense and one-time revenue items. For more information regarding FFO and Adjusted FFO, see the "Fourth Quarter 2013 Results - Funds From Operations" section below.

GAAP NET INCOME

For the three-month period ended December 31, 2013, the Company reported net income available to common stockholders of $47.2 million, or $0.38 per diluted common share, on operating revenues of $111.1 million. This compares to net income available to common stockholders of $33.9 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share, on operating revenues of $95.0 million, for the same period in 2012.

For the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2013, the Company reported net income available to common stockholders of $172.5 million, or $1.46 per diluted common share, on operating revenues of $418.7 million. This compares to net income available to common stockholders of $120.7 million, or $1.12 per diluted common share, on operating revenues of $350.5 million, for the same period in 2012.

The year-to-date increase in net income was primarily due to additional operating revenue associated with approximately $846 million of net new investments made since October of 2012. These increases to net income were partially offset by increased expenses associated with the new investments; including (i) $15.7 million in increased depreciation expense (ii) $4.9 million in increased interest expense and (iii) $0.3 million in incremental general and administrative expenses. In addition, interest refinancing expense decreased $19.0 million. The decrease in refinancing costs resulted from an $11.1 million interest refinancing gain recorded in the second quarter of 2013 compared to $7.9 million in interest refinancing costs relating to 2012 refinancing activities.

2013 FINANCING ACTIVITIES

$200 Million Term Loan - On December 27, 2013, the Company entered into a new $200 million senior unsecured, deferred draw, term loan facility (the "2013 Term Loan Facility") that matures on February 29, 2016.

The Term Loan Facility is also priced at LIBOR plus an applicable percentage (beginning at 175 basis points, with a range of 110 to 230 basis points) based on the Company's ratings from Standard & Poor's, Moody's and/or Fitch Ratings.

At December 31, 2013, the Company had no borrowings under the 2013 Term Loan Facility. At the date of this release, the Company has fully drawn all of the $200 million under the 2013 Term Loan Facility and used the proceeds to repay outstanding borrowings under Omega's 2012 senior unsecured revolving credit facility. The Company may prepay the 2013 Term Loan Facility at any time in whole or in part without fees or penalty. Principal amounts prepaid or repaid under the 2013 Term Loan Facility may not be borrowed.

The 11 HUD mortgage loans had a blended interest rate of 6.61% per annum with maturities between January 2036 and May 2040. The payoff resulted in an $11.3 million gain on the extinguishment of the debt due to the write-off of the remaining fair market value adjustment offset by a prepayment fee of $0.2 million recorded in the second quarter of 2013.

$59 Million HUD Mortgage Debt Refinancing - On March 26, 2013, the Company refinanced approximately $59 million of debt related to 12 mortgage loans guaranteed by HUD. The 12 HUD mortgage loans had a blended interest rate of 5.55% per annum with maturities in July 2044.

Under the terms of the 2013 Agreements, the Company may sell shares of its common stock, from time to time, through or to the Managers having an aggregate gross sales price of up to $250 million. Sales of the shares will be made by means of ordinary brokers' transactions on the New York Stock Exchange at market prices, or as otherwise agreed with the applicable Manager.

2014 ADJUSTED FAD AND ADJUSTED FFO GUIDANCE

The Company currently expects its 2014 Adjusted Funds Available For Distribution ("FAD") available to common stockholders to be between $2.44 and $2.47 per diluted share. In addition, the Company expects its 2014 Adjusted FFO available to common stockholders to be between $2.69 and $2.72 per diluted share.

The Company's Adjusted FAD and Adjusted FFO guidance for 2014 includes the $112.5 million of new investments listed above and planned capital renovation projects; however, it excludes the impact of gains and losses from the sale of assets, additional acquisitions and divestitures, certain revenue and expense items, interest refinancing expense, capital transactions and stock-based compensation expense. A reconciliation of the Adjusted FAD and FFO guidance to the Company's projected GAAP earnings is provided on schedules attached to this press release. The Company may, from time to time, update its publicly announced Adjusted FAD and FFO guidance, but it is not obligated to do so.

The Company's Adjusted FAD and FFO guidance is based on a number of assumptions, which are subject to change and many of which are outside the Company's control. If actual results vary from these assumptions, the Company's expectations may change. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the timing and completion of acquisitions, divestitures, capital and financing transactions, and variations in restricted stock amortization expense may cause actual results to vary materially from our current expectations. There can be no assurance that the Company will achieve its projected results.

TAX TREATMENT FOR 2013 DIVIDENDS

Funds From Operations ("FFO"), Adjusted FFO and Funds Available for Distribution ("FAD") are non-GAAP financial measures. For purposes of the Securities and Exchange Commission's Regulation G, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of operations, balance sheet or statement of cash flows (or equivalent statements) of the company, or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable financial measure so calculated and presented. As used in this press release, GAAP refers to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
 
The Company calculates and reports FFO in accordance with the definition and interpretive guidelines issued by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"), and consequently, FFO is defined as net income available to common stockholders, adjusted for the effects of asset dispositions and certain non-cash items, primarily depreciation and amortization and impairments on real estate assets. The Company believes that FFO is an important supplemental measure of its operating performance. Because the historical cost accounting convention used for real estate assets requires depreciation (except on land), such accounting presentation implies that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time, while real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions. The term FFO was designed by the real estate industry to address this issue. FFO described herein is not necessarily comparable to FFO of other real estate investment trusts, or REITs, that do not use the same definition or implementation guidelines or interpret the standards differently from the Company.
 
The Company uses FFO as one of several criteria to measure the operating performance of its business. The Company further believes that by excluding the effect of depreciation, amortization, impairments on real estate assets and gains or losses from sales of real estate, all of which are based on historical costs and which may be of limited relevance in evaluating current performance, FFO can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between other REITs. The Company offers this measure to assist the users of its financial statements in analyzing its performance; however, this is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a measure of liquidity, an alternative to net income or an indicator of any other performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors in the Company's securities should not rely on this measure as a substitute for any GAAP measure, including net income.
 
Adjusted FFO is calculated as FFO available to common stockholders excluding the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation and certain revenue and expense items identified above. The Company believes that Adjusted FFO provides an enhanced measure of the operating performance of the Company's core portfolio as a REIT.
 
FAD is calculated as Adjusted FFO less non-cash interest expense and non-cash revenue, such as straight-line rent. For periods prior to the quarter ended September 30, 2012, FAD also excluded scheduled debt and principal payments on mortgages. FAD provides a supplemental measure of the Company's ability to incur and service debt and to distribute dividends to shareholders. The Company's computation of adjusted FFO and FAD are not comparable to the NAREIT definition of FFO or to similar measures reported by other REITs, but the Company believes that they are appropriate measures for this Company.
 

The Company currently expects its 2014 Adjusted FFO available to common stockholders to be between $2.69 and $2.72 per diluted share. The Company also expects its 2014 Adjusted FAD available to common stockholders to be between $2.44 and $2.47 per diluted share. The following table presents a reconciliation of our guidance regarding 2014 FFO and Adjusted FFO and FAD and Adjusted FAD to net income available to common stockholders:
