Community Healthcare Trust Announces Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2017

FRANKLIN, Tenn., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Community Healthcare Trust Incorporated (NYSE: CHCT) (the "Company") today announced results for the three months ended March 31, 2017. The Company reported net income for the first quarter of approximately $0.9 million, or $0.07 per diluted common share. Normalized funds from operations and Adjusted funds from operations for the three months ended March 31, 2017 each totaled $0.38 per diluted common share.

Highlights include:

  • During the first quarter of 2017, the Company acquired 10 properties for a total purchase price of $28.5 million, including cash consideration of $28.4 million. The 10 properties, located in five states, total approximately 145,000 square feet and were 95.2% leased upon acquisition with lease expirations through 2032. During the first quarter of 2017, the Company also acquired a property, adjacent to its corporate office, for a cash purchase price of approximately $0.9 million. The property is currently leased to a tenant but the Company intends to use the property for future expansion of its corporate office.
  • Since March 31, 2017 and through May 9, 2017, the Company acquired six real estate properties totaling approximately 79,900 square feet for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $4.1 million, including cash consideration of approximately $4.2 million. Upon acquisition, the properties were 100% leased with lease expirations through 2032. The acquisitions were funded with proceeds from our Revolving Credit Facility.
  • The Company has three properties under definitive purchase agreements for an aggregate expected purchase price of approximately $15.3 million as of May 9, 2017. The Company's expected return on these investments is approximately 9.0%. The Company is currently performing due diligence procedures customary for these types of transactions and cannot provide any assurance as to the timing or when or whether these transactions will actually close.
  • A common stock dividend of $0.39 per common share was declared on May 4, 2017 for the first quarter of 2017. This dividend is payable on June 2, 2017 to shareholders of record on May 19, 2017.
  • On March 29, 2017, the Company entered into an amended and restated $250 million credit facility. The credit facility provides for a $150 million revolving facility and $100 million in term loans, and through the accordion feature, allows borrowings up to a a total of $450.0 million, including the ability to add and fund additional term loans. The term loans, which allow for a delayed draw of a portion of the funds, consists of $50 million maturing in March 2022 and $50 million maturing in March 2024. The revolving facility matures in August 2019, with two 12-month extension options. The amended and restated credit facility replaces the Company's $150 million revolving credit facility. At closing, the Company borrowed $12 million under its revolving facility and $60 million, under the term loans, in equal amounts of 5 and 7 year maturities. The Company has 15 months from the close date to borrow undrawn amounts under the term loans. Also, on March 31, 2017, the Company entered into interest rate swap agreements that fixed the interest rates on the term loans, resulting in fixed interest rates under the term loans ranging from 4.147% to 4.535% depending on the maturity, the Company's leverage, and other factors.
  • As announced on March 1, 2017, the Company's Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President Timothy Wallace entered into a 10b5-1 plan to acquire shares of the Company's common stock. The plan replaced Mr. Wallace's 10b5-1 trading plan dated February 29, 2016, which expired on December 31, 2016. The new trading plan was entered into on February 27, 2017 and became effective April 3, 2017. Under the plan, Mr. Wallace will be able to purchase up to the lesser of $2,000,000 or 100,000 shares of the Company's common stock, subject to timing, price and trading limitations.

Historical cost accounting for real estate assets implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time.  However, since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors deem presentations of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by themselves. For that reason, the Company considers funds from operations ("FFO"), normalized FFO and adjusted funds from operations ("AFFO") to be appropriate measures of operating performance of an equity real estate investment trust ("REIT"). In particular, the Company believes that normalized FFO and AFFO are useful because they allow investors, analysts and Company management to compare the Company's operating performance to the operating performance of other real estate companies and between periods on a consistent basis without having to account for differences caused by unanticipated items and other events.




The Company uses the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. ("NAREIT") definition of FFO. FFO and FFO per share are operating performance measures adopted by NAREIT. NAREIT defines FFO as the most commonly accepted and reported measure of a REIT's operating performance equal to "net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures." The Company has included normalized FFO which it has defined as FFO excluding certain expenses related to closing costs of properties acquired accounted for as business combinations and mortgages funded and has included AFFO which it has defined as normalized FFO excluding straight-line rent and deferred compensation and may include other non-cash items from time to time. Normalized FFO and AFFO presented herein may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other real estate companies due to the fact that not all real estate companies use the same definitions.




FFO, normalized FFO and AFFO should not be considered as alternatives to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as indicators of the Company's financial performance or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) as measures of the Company's liquidity, nor are they necessarily indicative of sufficient cash flow to fund all of the Company's needs. The Company believes that in order to facilitate a clear understanding of the consolidated historical operating results of the Company, FFO, normalized FFO and AFFO should be examined in conjunction with net income as presented elsewhere herein.



(2)

Upon the adoption of Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No, 2017-01, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business, on January 1, 2017, the Company expects that substantially all of its acquisitions will be accounted for as asset acquisitions. As such, transaction costs related to its acquisitions will be capitalized into the real estate property.
