Regional Health Properties Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2020 Financial Results

Share:

Regional Health Properties, Inc. (NYSE:RHE) (NYSE:RHEPA), a self-managed healthcare real estate investment company that invests primarily in real estate purposed for senior living and long-term care, reported results for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Business Update

  • Successfully transitioned two non-performing facilities affiliated with one operator, preliminary results for transitioned facilities for January and February 2021 very encouraging
  • Collected 91% of 2020 cash rent
  • Generated positive free cash flow from continuing operations for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, despite covid-19 headwinds

Brent Morrison, Regional Health Properties' Chief Executive Officer and President, commented, "Our portfolio occupancy experienced some softness going into yearend but we remain hopeful that the vaccine rollout and reinstating family visitation privileges should reverse the downward trend by the second half of 2021. We have a strong and experienced portfolio of operating partners and remain confident in their abilities to continue to navigate through the challenges resulting from the ongoing pandemic." Ben Waites, Regional's Chief Financial Officer added "I'm excited to join the Regional team. I look forward to furthering the company's progress and see Regional well positioned to weather the storm. We see opportunities to refinance some of our senior debt secured by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as well as other capital structure improvements."

Management periodically monitors a number of facility performance metrics, including rent coverages both before and after management fees. In the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company's portfolio rent coverage before management fees was 1.77x and rent coverage after management fees was 1.28x. Occupancy and skilled mix for the Company's portfolio were 67.3% and 28.4% for the fourth quarter of 2020, respectively. These data exclude the impact of three managed facilities located in Ohio.

Rent Collections and Operator Changes

As of the year ended December 31, 2020, we collected 80% and 82% of contractual cash due for the fourth quarter of 2020 and twelve months ended December 31, 2020, respectively. As of the date of this press release, rent collections increased to 91% of contractual cash due for the year 2020. All expected contractual rent has been collected through March 2021.

As announced in December, we terminated a lease with the operator of two facilities located in Georgia. One facility was transitioned to Empire Care Centers, a new operator to Regional and the second building is being managed by Vero Health Care, a current leasee of the company. Preliminary operating results from January and February for these facilities are encouraging.

Summary of Financial Results for the Three and 12 Months Ended December 31, 2020

Total rental revenues in the fourth quarter of 2020 decreased 20.2% to $3.4 million, from $4.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Total rental revenues for the 12 months ended December 31, 2020 decreased by 14.3% to $16.3 million, from $19.0 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019. The decrease is primarily a result of the agreement to terminate the subleases for two skilled nursing facilities in the fourth quarter of 2020 (the "Wellington Transition") partially offset by four facilities sold during the third quarter of 2019 (the "Asset Sale") as well as the disposition of two facilities we subleased "Omega Disposition" in the first quarter of 2019.

General and administrative costs increased 62.1%, to $1.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared with $641,000 for the same period in 2019. The increase for the fourth quarter includes approximately $100,000 of timing differences from recognition of Auditing and Accounting expenses (expensed as incurred) and approximately $300,000 in legal and consulting fees related to the Wellington Transition compared to the same period in 2019. General and administrative costs for the 12 months ended December 31, 2020 increased by 5.7%, to $3.4 million, compared with $3.2 million for the same period in 2019, the increase consists of $200,000 in consulting and legal fees and other insurance. Additionally for the 12 months ended December 31, 2020, and 2019, general and administrative costs include $49,000 and $92,000, respectively of stock-based compensation expense.

Provision (recovery) for doubtful accounts increased to $272,000 for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared with income of $67,000 for the same period in 2019. Provision (recovery) for doubtful accounts increased by approximately $1.2 million, to $925,000, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, compared with income of $281,000 for the year ended December 31, 2019. The current quarter and year expense is related to approximately $1.4 million provision of outstanding rent arrears and other straight-line adjustments arising from one operator (Wellington) offset by approximately $0.5 million of rent collection from prior year payment plans.

Interest expense decreased by $44,000, or 6.0%, to $686,000 for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared with $730,000 for the same period in 2019. Interest expense for the 12 months ended December 31, 2020, decreased by approximately $2.5 million or 47.3%, to $2.8 million compared to $5.3 million for the same period in 2019. The current quarter and year decrease is mainly due to the payoff of the Pinecone and Congressional Bank loans during the prior year from the proceeds of the Asset Sale.

Loss from discontinued operations, net of tax, for the fourth quarter of 2020, was $51,000 compared to income from discontinued operations, net of tax, of $215,000 for the prior year period. For the 12 months ended December 31, 2020, loss from discontinued operations, net of tax, was $84,000 compared to income from discontinued operations of $626,000 for the prior year period. The current year expense is primarily an adjustment to legacy accounts receivable. The prior period income is due to a $200,000 credit from one of the Company's former attorneys, and $400,000 credit from legacy professional and general claims.

Net loss attributable to Regional Health Properties, Inc.'s common stockholders in the fourth quarter of 2020 was $3.3 million compared with a net loss of $1.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. For the 12 months ended December 31, 2020, the net loss attributable to Regional Health Properties, Inc.'s common stockholders was $9.7 million, or $5.74 per basic and diluted share, compared with a net loss of $3.5 million, inclusive of a $6.5 million pre-tax gain on the Asset Sale and $600,000 pre-tax gain from the Omega Disposition recognized during the first nine months of the year ended December 31, 2019, or $2.07 per basic and diluted share, in the prior year period.

Cash at December 31, 2020, totaled $4.2 million compared with $4.4 million at December 31, 2019. Restricted cash at December 31, 2020, totaled $3.3 million compared to $3.7 million at December 31, 2019. Total debt outstanding at December 31, 2020 amounted to $54.4 million compared with $55.4 million at December 31, 2019 (net of $1.3 million and $1.4 million of deferred financing costs at December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively).
