Community Healthcare Trust Announces Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2020

FRANKLIN, Tenn., Nov. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Community Healthcare Trust Incorporated (NYSE: CHCT) (the "Company") today announced results for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The Company reported net income for the third quarter of approximately $5.2 million, or $0.22 per diluted common share. Funds from operations and adjusted funds from operations ("AFFO") for the three months ended September 30, 2020 totaled $0.52 and $0.53, respectively, per diluted common share. 

Highlights include:

  • During the third quarter of 2020, the Company issued, through its at-the-market offering program ("ATM Program"), 536,839 shares of common stock at an average gross sales price of $47.40 per share and received net proceeds of approximately $24.9 million at an approximate 3.64% current equity yield.
  • During the third quarter of 2020, the Company acquired a land parcel adjacent to one of our existing properties for a purchase price and cash consideration of approximately $1.1 million.
  • During the fourth quarter of 2020, through November 3, 2020, the Company acquired 10 properties for an aggregate purchase price and cash consideration of approximately $67.9 million. The facilities were 100% leased in the aggregate with lease expirations through 2035.
  • The Company has three properties under definitive purchase agreements for an aggregate expected purchase price of approximately $12.8 million and expected aggregate returns ranging from approximately 9.2% to 10.8%. The Company expects to close on these properties through the first quarter of 2021; however, the Company cannot provide assurance as to the timing of when, or whether, these transactions will actually close.
  • The Company has two properties under definitive purchase agreements, to be acquired after completion and occupancy, for an aggregate expected purchase price of approximately $38.0 million. The Company's expected aggregate returns on these investments of approximately 11.0%. The Company expects to close on these properties during the first half of 2021; however, the Company cannot provide assurance as to the timing of when, or whether, these transactions will actually close.
  • On November 2, 2020, the Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly common stock dividend in the amount of $0.425 per share. The dividend is payable on November 27, 2020 to stockholders of record on November 16, 2020.

Highland Update:

  • On July 1, 2020, the bankruptcy sale of Highland Hospital was completed and the operator who had been managing the facility acquired its operations and entered into a lease with the Company.
  • The Company provided debtor in possession financing (the "DIP") to facilitate the sale and held a note receivable with a net investment of $0.6 million (the "Note"), secured by all assets of Highland Hospital. The DIP and the Note were subsequently combined into a single net receivable with a net balance of approximately $0.2 million as of September 30, 2020. This amount was subsequently collected in October 2020.

COVID-19 Pandemic

  • Many healthcare providers have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of them were unable to see patients for a period of time; others have seen a reduced number of elective procedures and/or patient visits; while others have experienced limited impact, or have even seen improved cash flows from either increases in census or from government funding.
  • As of October 31, 2020, the Company has entered into deferral agreements with 18 tenants and anticipates entering into an additional agreement with a tenant, in the aggregate representing less than one percent of our annualized rent. Pursuant to these agreements, the tenants are generally required to repay the deferred amounts in equal monthly installments during the third and fourth quarters of 2020. The Company received substantially all of the installments that were due during the third quarter of 2020.

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") 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 AFFO is useful because it allows 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 (calculated in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains or losses from the sale of certain real estate assets and gains or losses from change in control, plus depreciation and amortization related to real estate, plus impairment write-downs of certain real estate assets and investments in entities when the impairment is directly attributable to decreases in the value of depreciable real estate held by the entity, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures, as well as other items discussed in NAREIT's Funds From Operations White Paper - 2018 Restatement. NAREIT also provides REITs with an option to exclude gains, losses and impairments of assets that are incidental to the main business of the REIT from the calculation of FFO. 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 definition




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 and AFFO should be examined in conjunction with net income as presented elsewhere herein.



(2)

Diluted weighted average common shares outstanding for FFO are calculated based on the treasury method, rather than the 2-class method used to calculate earnings per share.
