CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
  
This report contains certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements relate to, among other things, the operating performance of New Senior Investment Group Inc.’s (“New Senior,” the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”) investments, the stability of our earnings, and our financing needs. Forward-looking statements are generally identifiable by use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “would,” “should,” “potential,” “intend,” “expect,” “plan,” “endeavor,” “seek,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “overestimate,” “underestimate,” “believe,” “could,” “project,” “predict,” “continue” or other similar words or expressions. Forward-looking statements are based on certain assumptions, discuss future expectations, describe future plans and strategies, contain projections of results of operations or of financial condition or state other forward-looking information. Our ability to predict results or the actual outcome of future plans or strategies is inherently uncertain. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, our actual results and performance could differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results in future periods to differ materially from forecasted results. Factors which could have a material adverse effect on our operations and future prospects include, but are not limited to: 

uncertainty regarding the outcome of our exploration of strategic alternatives, including whether it will result in any transaction being consummated;
our ability to successfully manage the proposed transition to self-management;
our ability to comply with the terms of our financings, which depends in part on the performance of our operators;
any increase in our borrowing costs as a result of rising interest rates or other factors;
our ability to pay down, refinance, restructure or extend our indebtedness as it becomes due or as needed to comply with the terms of our covenants or to facilitate our ability to sell assets;
our ability to manage our liquidity and sustain distributions to our stockholders, particularly in light of the cash shortfall described in our risk factors under Item 1A. and under Item 2. “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations-Liquidity and Capital Resources”;
our dependence on our property managers and tenant to operate our properties successfully and in compliance with the terms of our agreements with them, applicable law and the terms of our financings;
factors affecting the performance of our properties, such as increases in costs (including, but not limited to, the costs of labor, supplies, insurance and property taxes);
concentration risk with respect to Holiday Retirement (“Holiday”), which, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, accounted for 79.5% of net operating income (“NOI”) from our Managed Properties segment and 87.5% of NOI from our Triple Net Lease Properties segment;
risks associated with a change of control in the ownership or senior management of Holiday;
our ability and the ability of our property managers and tenant to obtain and maintain adequate property, liability and other insurance from reputable, financially stable providers;
changes of federal, state and local laws and regulations relating to employment, fraud and abuse practices, Medicaid reimbursement and licensure, etc., including those affecting the healthcare industry that affect our costs of compliance or increase the costs, or otherwise affect the operations or our property managers or tenant;
the ability of our property managers and tenant to maintain the financial strength and liquidity necessary to satisfy their respective obligations and liabilities to us and third parties;
the quality and size of our investment pipeline, our ability to execute investments at attractive risk-adjusted prices, our ability to finance our investments on favorable terms, and our ability to deploy investable cash in a timely manner;
our ability to sell properties on favorable terms and to realize the anticipated benefits from any such dispositions;
changes in economic conditions generally and the real estate, senior housing and bond markets specifically;
our stock price performance and any disruption or lack of access to the capital markets or other sources of financing;
the impact of any current or future legal proceedings and regulatory investigations and inquiries on us, FIG LLC (our “Manager”) or our operators;
potential conflicts of interest relating to our external management structure, the fact that Holiday is majority-owned by private equity funds managed by our Manager (or its affiliates), or other factors, and our ability to effectively manage and resolve actual, potential or perceived conflicts of interest;
effects of the merger of Fortress Investment Group LLC with affiliates of SoftBank Group Corp. (“Softbank”);
our ability to maintain effective internal control over financial reporting and our reliance on our operators for timely delivery of accurate property-level financial results;
our ability to maintain our qualification as a Real Estate Investment Trust (“REIT”) for U.S. federal income tax purposes and the potentially onerous consequences that any failure to maintain such qualification would have on our business; and
our ability to maintain our exemption from registration under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”) and the fact that maintaining such exemption imposes limits on our business strategy.




Although we believe that the expectations reflected in any forward-looking statements contained herein are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements. The factors noted above could cause our actual results to differ significantly from those contained in any forward-looking statement.
 
Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any of these forward-looking statements, which reflect our management’s views only as of the date of this report. We are under no duty to update any of the forward-looking statements after the date of this report to conform these statements to actual results.

Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is calculated by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding. Diluted EPS is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding plus the additional dilutive effect, if any, of common stock equivalents during each period.
(B)
All outstanding options were excluded from the diluted share calculation as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)
September 30, 2018
(dollars in tables in thousands, except share data)



1.
ORGANIZATION
 
New Senior is a REIT primarily focused on investing in private pay senior housing properties. As of September 30, 2018, we owned a diversified portfolio of 133 primarily private pay senior housing properties located across 37 states. We are listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) under the symbol “SNR” and are headquartered in New York, New York.
 
We operate in two reportable segments: (1) Managed Properties and (2) Triple Net Lease Properties.
 
Managed Properties – We have engaged property managers to manage 132 of our properties on a day-to-day basis under the Managed Properties segment. These properties consist of 102 independent living (“IL”) facilities and 30 assisted living/memory care (“AL/MC”) facilities. Our managed properties are managed by Holiday Retirement (“Holiday”), a portfolio company that is majority owned by private equity funds managed by an affiliate of FIG LLC (the “Manager”), a subsidiary of Fortress Investment Group LLC (“Fortress”), FHC Property Management LLC (together with its subsidiaries, “Blue Harbor”), an affiliate of the Manager, Jerry Erwin Associates, Inc. (“JEA”), Thrive Senior Living LLC (“Thrive”), Grace Management, Inc. (“Grace”) and Watermark Retirement Communities, Inc. (“Watermark”) under property management agreements. Pursuant to the property management agreements, the property managers are responsible for the day-to-day operations of our senior housing properties and are entitled to a management fee in accordance with the terms of the property management agreements.

Our property management agreements have initial five-year or ten-year terms, with successive, automatic one-year renewal periods. We pay property management fees of 5% to 7% of effective gross income pursuant to our property management agreements with Holiday and, in certain cases, Holiday is eligible to earn an incentive fee based on operating performance. We pay property management fees of 3% to 7% of gross revenues and, for certain properties, (i) a property management fee based on a percentage of net operating income (“NOI”) and (ii) when eligible, an incentive fee based on operating performance, pursuant to our property management agreements with other managers.

On May 9, 2018, we entered into a lease termination agreement to terminate our triple net leases with affiliates of Holiday relating to 51 IL properties (the “Holiday Portfolio”). The lease termination was effective May 14, 2018 (the “Lease Termination”). Concurrently with the Lease Termination, we entered into property management agreements with Holiday to manage the properties in the Holiday Portfolio following the Lease Termination in exchange for a property management fee. As a result, such properties are now included in the Managed Properties segment. Refer to Note 3 for additional details related to the Lease Termination.

Triple Net Lease Properties – We own one Continuing Care Retirement Community (“CCRC”) in the United States and lease this property to a healthcare operating company under a triple net lease agreement. In a triple net lease arrangement, the lessee agrees to operate and maintain the property at its own expense, including maintenance, utilities, taxes, insurance, repairs, capital improvements and the payroll expense of property-level employees. Our triple net lease agreement has an initial term of 15 years and includes a renewal option and annual rent increases ranging from 2.75% to 3.25%.

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP’’) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of New Senior and its consolidated subsidiaries. All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated. We consolidate those entities in which we have control over significant operating, financial and investing decisions of the entity. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, as filed with the SEC.

Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period’s presentation.

Use of Estimates

Management is required to make estimates and assumptions when preparing financial statements in conformity with GAAP. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the accompanying consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results may differ from management’s estimates.

Significant Accounting Policies

There were no material changes to our significant accounting policies disclosed in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

On January 1, 2018, we adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenues from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”) using the modified retrospective method of adoption. This standard requires revenue to be recognized when promised goods or services are transferred to the customer in an amount that reflects the consideration expected in exchange for those goods or services. The adoption did not result in an adjustment to beginning retained earnings and did not have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements. Substantially all of our revenue has been generated through our triple net lease and managed property leasing arrangements, which are specifically excluded from ASC 606, and are accounted for under other applicable GAAP standards. We account for ancillary revenue under ASC 606. The timing and pattern of revenue recognition of our ancillary revenue under ASC 606 is consistent with that under the prior accounting model.

Additionally, real estate sales are within the scope of ASC 606, as amended by ASU 2017-05, Other Income - Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets (“ASU 2017-05”). ASU 2017-05 clarifies the scope of subtopic 610-20, Other Income - Gains and Losses from Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets, and adds guidance for partial sales of nonfinancial assets. Under these models, income recognition for real estate sales is largely based on the transfer of control versus continuing involvement under the current guidance. As a result, more transactions may qualify as sales of real estate and gains or losses may be recognized earlier. Sales of our real estate are generally not executory across points in time and our performance obligations from these contracts are expected to fall within a single period.

On January 1, 2018, we adopted ASU 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230) - Restricted Cash, which requires that the statement of cash flows include a reconciliation and explain the change during the period in the total of cash, cash equivalents, and amounts generally described as restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents. This standard impacts the presentation of our Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows as activity between cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash is no longer presented in our operating, financing or investing activities. Upon adoption, the changes in classification within the statement of cash flows is applied retrospectively to all periods presented. As a result of the retrospective application, our net cash provided by operating activities increased by $6.8 million and our net cash provided by investing activities decreased by $4.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

On January 1, 2018, we adopted ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows – Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which provides guidance on how certain cash receipts and cash payments are to be presented and classified on the statement of cash flows. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2016-02, Leases. This standard amends the existing accounting standards for lease accounting, including requiring lessees to recognize most leases on their balance sheets and making targeted changes to lessor accounting. The effective date of the standard will be for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018, and early adoption is permitted. The new leases standard requires a modified retrospective transition approach for all leases existing at, or entered into after, the date of initial application, with an option to use certain transition relief.

The new standard provides a number of optional practical expedients in transition. We expect to elect the ‘package of practical expedients’, which permits us not to reassess under the new standard our prior conclusions about lease identification, lease classification and initial direct costs.

We continue to assess the guidance and the impact it may have on our consolidated financial statements and have initiated a review to identify embedded leases as well as non-lease components, if any, in our lease agreements. We currently believe the most significant effects relate to (1) the recognition of new right-of-use assets and lease liabilities on our balance sheets for our operating leases where we are the lessee and (2) providing new disclosures about our leasing activities.

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses, Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. This standard replaces the current incurred loss methodology with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses. Under this methodology, a company would recognize an impairment allowance equal to its current estimate of all contractual cash flows that it does not expect to collect from financial assets measured at amortized cost. The effective date of the standard will be for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019, and early adoption is permitted beginning after December 15, 2018. We are assessing the impact this guidance may have on our consolidated financial statements.

3.
LEASE TERMINATION

On May 9, 2018, we entered into a lease termination agreement with affiliates of Holiday to terminate our triple net leases relating to the Holiday Portfolio. The Lease Termination was effective May 14, 2018. We received total consideration of $115.6 million, including a $70.0 million termination payment and retention of $45.6 million in security deposits held by us. In connection with the Lease Termination, we also assumed ownership of certain furniture, fixtures, equipment and other improvements with a fair market value of $10.1 million. As a result of the Lease Termination, we recognized a gain on lease termination of $40.1 million after adjusting for write-offs of straight-line rent receivables of $84.3 million and net above-market rent lease intangible assets of $1.2 million.

Concurrently with the Lease Termination, we entered into property management agreements with Holiday pursuant to which we pay a management fee equal to a monthly base fee in the amount of 5% of effective gross income in the first year of the term and 4.5% of effective gross income for the remainder of the term. In addition, Holiday is eligible to earn an annual incentive fee of up to 2% of effective gross income if the Holiday Portfolio achieves certain performance thresholds. The agreements may be terminated without penalty after the first year of the term.

4.
DISPOSITIONS

We did not have any dispositions during the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, we sold two AL/MC and two IL properties in the Managed Properties segment for a combined sale price of $48.5 million, and recognized a gain on sale of $22.5 million, net of selling costs which is included in “Gain on sale of real estate” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. In connection with this sale, we repaid $28.0 million of debt.

5. SEGMENT REPORTING

We operate in two reportable business segments: Managed Properties and Triple Net Lease Properties. Under our Managed Properties segment, we invest in senior housing properties throughout the United States and engage property managers to manage those senior housing properties. Under our Triple Net Lease Properties segment, we invest in senior housing and healthcare properties throughout the United States and lease those properties to healthcare operating companies under triple net leases that obligate the tenants to pay all property-related expenses, including maintenance, utilities, taxes, insurance, repairs, capital improvements and the payroll expense of property-level employees.

We evaluate performance of the combined properties in each reportable business segment based on segment NOI. We define NOI as total revenues less property-level operating expenses, which include property management fees and travel cost reimbursements. We believe that net income, as defined by GAAP, is the most appropriate earnings measurement. However, we believe that segment NOI serves as a useful supplement to net income because it allows investors, analysts and management to measure unlevered property-level operating results and to compare our operating results between periods and to the operating results of other real

(dollars in tables in thousands, except share data)


estate companies on a consistent basis. Segment NOI should not be considered as an alternative to net income as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Effective May 14, 2018, we terminated our triple net leases with respect to the properties in the Holiday Portfolio and concurrently entered into property management agreements with Holiday with respect to such properties. The NOI for such properties following the Lease Termination has been included in the Managed Properties segment. This resulted in a significant increase in the segment NOI of the Managed Properties with a corresponding decrease in the segment NOI of the Triple Net Lease Properties during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018. In addition, assets related to such properties are included in the Managed Properties segment as of September 30, 2018, resulting in a significant increase in the Managed Properties segment assets, and a corresponding decrease in the Triple Net Lease Properties segment assets as of September 30, 2018.

Depreciation and amortization, interest expense, acquisition, transaction and integration expense, management fees and incentive compensation to affiliate, general and administrative expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, other expense, gain on sale of real estate, gain on lease termination and income tax expense are not allocated to individual segments for purposes of assessing segment performance. There are no intersegment sales.

No rental revenue was attributable to our triple net leases with Holiday, which were terminated in May 2018, for the three months ended September 30, 2018. Holiday accounted for 19.7% of our total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2017, and 10.2% and 19.5% for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The decrease in rental revenue received from Holiday is due to the Lease Termination as it only includes rental revenue received by us until the Lease Termination.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, we wrote-off $254.2 million of fully amortized in-place lease and other intangible assets.

We evaluated long-lived assets, primarily consisting of our real estate investments, for impairment indicators. In performing this evaluation, market conditions and our current intentions with respect to holding or disposing of the asset are considered. Where indicators of impairment are present, we evaluated whether the sum of the expected future undiscounted cash flows is less than book value. Based on such assessment, the future undiscounted cash flows of the underlying operations exceeds the carrying value of such real estate investments, including definite lived intangible assets. Therefore, we did not recognize any impairment loss during the periods presented.

Impact of hurricanes

The Company has completed an initial assessment of the financial impact of Hurricane Florence. The Company operates six communities in areas impacted by Hurricane Florence. These communities have not sustained material damage to date.

During the third quarter of 2018, the Company recognized $0.6 million for damage remediation and other incremental costs which are included in “Other expense” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Company does not expect additional remediation costs in subsequent periods to be material.

During the third quarter of 2017, the Company recognized $1.5 million for damage remediation and other incremental costs for 25 properties impacted by Hurricane Irma, which are included in “Other expense” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.

STRAIGHT-LINE RENT RECEIVABLES

Rental revenue from the Triple Net Lease Properties segment is recognized on a straight-line basis over the applicable term of the lease when collectability is reasonably assured. Recognizing rental revenue on a straight-line basis typically results in recognizing revenue in excess of cash amounts contractually due from our tenants during the first half of the lease term, creating a straight-line rent receivable. Our straight-line rent receivables were $3.3 million and $82.4 million as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively. The decrease in straight-line rent receivables is due to the write-off of $84.3 million in conjunction with the Lease Termination, effective as of May 14, 2018, and is included in the “Gain on lease termination” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. Refer to Note 3 for additional details related to the Lease Termination.

We assess the collectability of straight-line rent receivables on an ongoing basis. This assessment is based on several qualitative and quantitative factors, including and as appropriate, the payment history of the triple net lease tenant, the tenant’s ability to satisfy its lease obligations, the value of the underlying collateral or deposit, if any, and current economic conditions. We considered the timeliness of lease payments, compliance with lease terms, security and other deposits posted by the tenant and collateral provided by the lease guarantor and determined no reserve was necessary for the periods presented.

The disclosed fair value of mortgage notes payable, classified as level 3 within the fair value hierarchy, is based on a discounted cash flow valuation model. Significant inputs in the model include amounts and timing of expected future cash flows and market yields which are constructed based on inputs implied from similar debt offerings.

In May 2018, we repaid $663.8 million of secured loans in conjunction with the Lease Termination. We recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt of $58.5 million, comprised of $51.9 million in prepayment penalties and $6.6 million in the write-off of deferred financing costs on the loans. The repayment was facilitated by a one-year secured term loan of $720.0 million (the “Term Loan”). We incurred a total of $12.3 million in deferred financing costs, which have been capitalized and amortized over the life of the Term Loan and the amortization is included in interest expense on the Consolidated Statements of Operations.

financing costs are reported as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of the related mortgage notes payable on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

In February 2018, we exercised an option to extend a balloon payment of $50.7 million from April 2018 to April 2019.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, we repaid $28.0 million of debt associated with the sale of two AL/MC and two IL properties in the Managed Properties segment and recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt of $0.7 million, which represents the write-off of related unamortized deferred financing costs and other exit fees.

Our mortgage notes payable contain various customary financial and other covenants, in some cases including Debt Service Coverage Ratio and Project Yield, as defined in the agreements. We were in compliance with the covenants in our mortgage notes payable agreements as of September 30, 2018.

Interest rate caps

In May 2018, we paid $0.1 million to enter into an interest rate cap on the Term Loan, which caps LIBOR at 3.50%, has a notional value of $720.0 million and is effective through May 2019.

In March 2018, we paid $0.3 million to renew an interest rate cap on our floating rate debt, which caps LIBOR at 3.66%, has a notional value of $591.2 million and is effective through April 2020.

Our interest rate caps are level 2 instruments and we estimate the fair value based on pricing models that consider inputs including forward yield curves, cap strike rates, cap volatility and discount rates. We recognized fair value losses of $0.1 million and $0.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $0.3 million and $0.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, which are included in “Other expense” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations and “Other non-cash expense” in the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. The fair value was $0.1 million as of September 30, 2018 and is included in “Receivables and other assets, net” in the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The fair value as of December 31, 2017 was not material.

TRANSACTIONS WITH AFFILIATES
 
Management Agreements

We are party to a management agreement (the “Management Agreement”) with the Manager, under which the Manager advises us on various aspects of our business and manages our day-to-day operations, subject to the supervision of our board of directors. For its management services, the Manager is entitled to a base management fee of 1.5% per annum of our gross equity. Gross equity is generally defined as the equity invested by Drive Shack Inc. (“Drive Shack”) (including cash contributed to us) as of the completion of the spin-off from Drive Shack, plus the aggregate offering price from stock offerings, plus certain capital contributions to subsidiaries, less capital distributions (calculated without regard to depreciation and amortization) and repurchases of common stock, calculated and payable monthly in arrears in cash. We incurred management fees of $3.7 million and $3.8 million during the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $11.1 million and $11.5 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, under the Management Agreement, which are included in “Management fees and incentive compensation to affiliate” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. As of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, we had a payable for management fees of $3.7 million and $1.3 million, respectively, which is included in “Due to affiliates” in the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
 
The Manager is entitled to receive, on a quarterly basis, incentive compensation on a cumulative, but not compounding basis, in an amount equal to the product of (A) 25% of the dollar amount by which (1)(a) funds from operations (as defined in the Management Agreement) before the incentive compensation per share of common stock, plus (b) gains (or losses) from sales of property per share of common stock, plus (c) internal and third party acquisition-related expenses, plus (d) unconsummated transaction expenses, and plus (e) other non-routine items (as defined in the Management Agreement), exceed (2) an amount equal to (a) the weighted average value per share of the equity invested by Drive Shack in the assets of New Senior (including cash contributed to us) as of the completion of the spin-off and the price per share of our common stock in any offerings by us (adjusted for prior capital dividends or capital distributions, which shall be calculated without regard to depreciation and amortization and repurchases of common stock) multiplied by (b) a simple interest rate of 10% per annum, multiplied by (B) the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding. The Manager did not earn incentive compensation during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and the three months ended September 30, 2017. The Manager earned incentive compensation of $2.9 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, which is included in “Management fees and incentive compensation to affiliate” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Manager is also entitled to receive, upon the successful completion of an equity offering, options with respect to 10% of the number of shares sold in the offering with an exercise price equal to the price paid by the purchaser in the offering.

Because the Manager’s employees perform certain legal, accounting, due diligence, asset management and other services that outside professionals or outside consultants otherwise would perform, the Manager is paid or reimbursed, pursuant to the Management Agreement, for the cost of performing such tasks, provided that such costs and reimbursements are no greater than those which would be paid to outside professionals or consultants on an arm’s-length basis. We are also required to pay all operating expenses, except those specifically required to be borne by the Manager under the Management Agreement. We are required to pay expenses that include, but are not limited to, issuance and transaction costs incidental to the sourcing, evaluation, acquisition, management, disposition, and financing of our investments, legal, underwriting, sourcing, asset management and accounting and auditing fees and expenses, the compensation and expenses of independent directors, the costs associated with the establishment and maintenance of any credit facilities and other indebtedness (including commitment fees, legal fees, closing costs, etc.), expenses associated with other securities offerings, the costs of printing and mailing proxies and reports to our stockholders, costs incurred by employees or agents of the Manager for travel on our behalf, costs associated with any computer software or hardware that is used by us, costs to obtain liability insurance to indemnify directors and officers and the compensation and expenses of our transfer agent.

Property Management Agreements
 
Within our Managed Properties segment, we are party to property management agreements with Blue Harbor, an affiliate of Fortress, and Holiday, a portfolio company that is majority owned by a private equity fund managed by an affiliate of Fortress, to manage most of its senior housing properties. Pursuant to these property management agreements, we pay monthly property management fees. For AL/MC properties managed by Blue Harbor and Holiday, we pay management fees equal to 6% of effective gross income for the first two years and 7% thereafter. For IL properties managed by Blue Harbor and Holiday, we generally pay management fees equal to 5% of effective gross income. For certain property management agreements, we may also pay an incentive fee based on operating performance of the properties. No incentive fees were incurred during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017. Property management fees are included in “Property operating expense” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. Other amounts paid to affiliated managers that are included in property operating expense are payroll expense and travel reimbursement costs. The payroll expense is structured as a reimbursement to the property manager, who is the employer of record.

In May 2018, concurrently with the Lease Termination, we entered into property management agreements with Holiday, pursuant to which we pay a management fee equal to a monthly base fee in the amount of 5% of effective gross income in the first year and 4.5% of effective gross income for the remainder of the term. In addition, Holiday is eligible to earn an annual incentive fee of up to 2% of effective gross income if the Holiday Portfolio achieves certain performance thresholds. The agreements may be terminated without penalty after the first year of the term. Refer to Note 3 for additional details related to the Lease Termination.

The property management agreements with affiliated managers have initial terms of 5 or 10 years and provide for automatic one-year extensions after the initial term, subject to termination rights. 

Triple Net Lease Agreements

On May 9, 2018, we entered into a lease termination agreement to terminate our triple net leases with affiliates of Holiday. The Lease Termination was effective May 14, 2018. We received total consideration of $115.6 million, including a $70.0 million termination payment and retention of $45.6 million in security deposits held by us. Prior to the Lease Termination, we received monthly rent payments in accordance with the terms of the leases. No payments were received during the three months ended

INCOME TAXES
 
New Senior is organized and conducts its operations to qualify as a REIT under the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”). However, certain of our activities are conducted through our taxable REIT subsidiary (“TRS”) and therefore are subject to federal and state income taxes at regular corporate tax rates.

The following table presents the provision for income taxes:

In assessing the recoverability of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income by the TRS during the periods in which temporary differences become deductible and before the net operating loss carryforward expires. We have not recorded a valuation allowance against our deferred tax assets as of September 30, 2018 or December 31, 2017 as management believes that it is more likely than not that our deferred tax assets will be realized.

On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Act”) was signed into law. The Act includes a number of significant changes to existing U.S. corporate income tax laws, most notably a reduction of the U.S. corporate income tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent, effective January 1, 2018. We measure deferred tax assets using enacted tax rates that will apply in the years in which the temporary differences are expected to be recovered or paid. Accordingly, our deferred tax assets were remeasured to reflect the reduction in the U.S. corporate income tax rate, resulting in a non-recurring $3.0 million increase in income tax expense for the year ended December 31, 2017 and a corresponding decrease of the same amount in our deferred tax assets as of December 31, 2017.

13.
EQUITY

In the first quarter of 2018, strike prices for outstanding options were reduced by $1.04, reflecting the portion of our 2017 dividends which were deemed return of capital.

In March 2018, we granted options to a new director relating to 5,000 shares of common stock, the grant date fair value of which was not material.

As of September 30, 2018, approximately 1.3 million shares of our common stock were held by Fortress, through its affiliates, and its principals.

14.
COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
 
As of September 30, 2018, management believes there are no material contingencies that would affect our results of operations, cash flows or financial position.
 
Certain Obligations, Liabilities and Litigation
 
We are and may become subject to various obligations, liabilities, investigations, inquiries and litigation assumed in connection with or arising from our on-going business, as well as acquisitions, sales, leasing and other activities. These obligations and liabilities (including the costs associated with investigations, inquiries and litigation) may be greater than expected or may not be known in advance. Any such obligations or liabilities could have a material adverse effect on our financial position, cash flows and results of operations, particularly if we are not entitled to indemnification, or if a responsible third party fails to indemnify us.
  
Certain Tax-Related Covenants
 
If we are treated as a successor to Drive Shack under applicable U.S. federal income tax rules, and if Drive Shack failed to qualify as a REIT for a taxable year ending on or before December 31, 2015, we could be prohibited from electing to be a REIT. Accordingly, in the separation and distribution agreement entered into to effect our spin-off from Drive Shack (“Separation and Distribution Agreement”), Drive Shack (i) represented that it had no knowledge of any fact or circumstance that would cause us to fail to qualify as a REIT, (ii) covenanted to use commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate with New Senior as necessary to enable us to qualify for taxation as a REIT and receive customary legal opinions concerning REIT status, including providing information and representations to us and our tax counsel with respect to the composition of Drive Shack’s income and assets, the composition of its stockholders and its operation as a REIT, and (iii) covenanted to use its reasonable best efforts to maintain its REIT status for each of Drive Shack’s taxable years ending on or before December 31, 2015 (unless Drive Shack obtains an opinion from a nationally recognized tax counsel or a private letter ruling from the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) to the effect that Drive Shack’s failure to maintain its REIT status will not cause us to fail to qualify as a REIT under the successor REIT rule referred to above).

Proceedings Indemnified and Defended by Third Parties

From time to time, we are party to certain legal actions, regulatory investigations and claims for which third parties are contractually obligated to indemnify, defend and hold us harmless. While we are presently not being defended by any tenant and other obligated third parties in these types of matters, there is no assurance that our tenants, their affiliates or other obligated third parties will defend us in these matters in the future, or that such parties will have sufficient assets, income and access to financing to enable them to satisfy their defense and indemnification obligations to us.

Environmental Costs
 
As a commercial real estate owner, we are subject to potential environmental costs. As of September 30, 2018, management is not aware of any environmental concerns that would have a material adverse effect on our financial position or results of operations.

Capital Improvement and Repair Commitments
 
We have agreed to make $1.0 million available for capital improvements during the 15 year lease period to the triple net lease property under Watermark, none of which has been funded as of September 30, 2018. Upon funding these capital improvements, we will be entitled to a rent increase.

SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

These consolidated financial statements include a discussion of material events, if any, which have occurred subsequent to September 30, 2018 (referred to as subsequent events) through the issuance of the consolidated financial statements.

On October 29, 2018, the Company’s board of directors declared a cash dividend on its common stock of $0.13 per common share for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. The dividend is payable on December 21, 2018 to shareholders of record on December 7, 2018.

On October 10, 2018, we refinanced the Term Loan with a seven-year secured loan of $720.0 million bearing interest at LIBOR plus 2.32%. We incurred approximately $11.6 million of expenses related to the refinancing, which will be capitalized and amortized over the life of the loan. We expect to write off approximately $6.2 million of deferred financing costs associated with the Term Loan. In October 2018, we paid $2.5 million to enter into an interest rate cap on the refinancing of the Term Loan, which caps LIBOR at 3.68%, has a notional value of $720.0 million and is effective through November 1, 2021.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
Management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations is intended to help the reader understand the results of operations and financial condition of New Senior. The following should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included within this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. This discussion contains forward-looking statements that are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties. Actual results and the timing of events may differ significantly from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements due to a number of factors, including those included in Part II, Item 1A “Risk Factors.”
 
OVERVIEW
 
Our Business
 
We are a REIT with a portfolio of 133 senior housing properties located across the United States. We are the only pure play senior housing REIT and one of the largest owners of senior housing properties. We are listed on the NYSE under the symbol “SNR” and are headquartered in New York, New York.
 
We conduct our business through two reportable segments: Managed Properties and Triple Net Lease Properties. See our consolidated financial statements and the related notes included in Part I, Item 1.

We are externally managed and advised by an affiliate of Fortress, subject to the supervision of our board of directors. For its services, the Manager is entitled to an annual management fee and is eligible for incentive compensation upon the satisfaction of certain performance thresholds, both as defined in, and in accordance with the terms of, the Management Agreement.

Our board of directors has approved broad investment guidelines for our Manager that permit us to invest in asset classes that differ materially from the assets we currently own.

Recent Developments

As previously announced on February 23, 2018, our board of directors, together with our management team and legal and financial advisors, has been exploring a full range of strategic alternatives to maximize stockholder value. The Board formed a special committee (the “Special Committee”), composed entirely of independent and disinterested directors, to address certain aspects of the strategic review. In connection with the strategic review, we retained J.P. Morgan Securities LLC as our financial advisor and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP as our legal advisor. In addition, the Special Committee retained Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC as its independent financial advisor and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz as its independent legal advisor. See Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors, “-There can be no assurance that our exploration of strategic alternatives will result in any transaction being consummated, and speculation and uncertainty regarding the outcome of such exploration of strategic alternatives may adversely impact our business.”

On May 9, 2018, we entered into a lease termination agreement to terminate our triple net leases with affiliates of Holiday. The lease termination was effective May 14, 2018 (the “Lease Termination”). We received total consideration of $115.6 million, including a $70.0 million termination payment and retention of $45.6 million in security deposits held by us. In addition, in connection with the Lease Termination, we assumed ownership of certain furniture, fixtures, equipment and other improvements with a fair market value of $10.1 million. During the second quarter of 2018, we recognized a gain on lease termination of $40.1 million after adjusting for write-offs of straight-line rent receivables of $84.3 million and net above-market rent lease intangible assets of $1.2 million.

Concurrently with the Lease Termination, we entered into property management agreements with Holiday pursuant to which we pay a management fee equal to a monthly base fee in the amount of 5% of effective gross income in the first year of the term and 4.5% of effective gross income for the remainder of the term. In addition, Holiday is eligible to earn an annual incentive fee of up to 2% of effective gross income if the Holiday Portfolio achieves certain performance thresholds. The agreements may be terminated without penalty after the first year of the term.

In conjunction with the Lease Termination, we repaid $663.8 million of secured loans and recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt of $58.5 million, comprising of $51.9 million in prepayment penalties and $6.6 million in the write-off of deferred financing costs on the loans, which is included in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The repayment was facilitated by a one-year secured term loan of $720.0 million (the “Term Loan”). We incurred a total of $12.3 million in deferred financing costs, which have been capitalized and amortized over the life of the Term Loan and the amortization is included in interest expense on the

20


Consolidated Statements of Operations. Deferred financing costs are reported as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of the related mortgage notes payable on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

On October 10, 2018, we refinanced the Term Loan with a seven-year secured loan of $720.0 million bearing interest at LIBOR plus 2.32%. We incurred approximately $11.6 million of expenses related to the refinancing, which will be capitalized and amortized over the life of the loan. In October 2018, we paid $2.5 million to enter into an interest rate cap on the refinancing of the Term Loan, which caps LIBOR at 3.68%, has a notional value of $720.0 million and is effective through November 1, 2021.

In addition, on August 7, 2018, we announced a non-binding agreement in principle with the Manager to internalize the Company’s management function. The Special Committee continues to work with the Manager towards definitive documentation for the internalization, and the Company continues to prepare to be operationally ready for the internalization by January 1, 2019. The agreement in principle with respect to the internalization is non-binding, and there can be no assurance as to when or whether the internalization will occur or its terms. See Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors, “-We may not realize some or all of the targeted benefits of the anticipated internalization”, “-Following the internalization, we expect to become reliant on certain transition services provided by our Manager pursuant to a transition services agreement, and we may not find a suitable provider for these transition services if the Manager ceases to provide the transition services under the terms of such agreement”, and “-We may not be able to attract and retain key management and other key employees in connection with the internalization.”

MARKET CONSIDERATIONS

Senior housing is a $300 billion market, and ownership of senior housing assets is highly fragmented. Given these industry fundamentals and compelling demographics that are expected to drive increased demand for senior housing, we believe the senior housing industry could present attractive investment opportunities. However, increased competition from other buyers of senior housing assets, as well as liquidity constraints and other factors, could impair our ability to source attractive investment opportunities within the senior housing industry and thus to seek investments in the broader healthcare industry. There can be no assurance that any investments we may make will be successful, and investments in asset classes other than senior housing could involve additional risks and uncertainties.

According to data from the National Investment Center for Seniors Housing and Care (“NIC”), occupancy in the third quarter decreased 60 basis points year over year. New Senior’s occupancy results underperformed the industry in the third quarter of 2018, with same store managed occupancy down 140 basis points year over year.

Industry occupancy for independent living (“IL”) facilities was down 30 basis points year over year, while industry occupancy for assisted living (“AL”) facilities was down 100 basis points year over year. Industry occupancy is expected to decline over the next four quarters.

Industry-wide, new supply remains elevated but continues to decrease. Units under construction represent 5.9% of inventory, but the ratio has decreased 140 basis points from a peak in the third quarter of 2016. The ratio of AL construction to inventory (7.0%) remains significantly higher than that for IL (4.9%).

Pressures from new competition remain significant for AL facilities in particular, including for some of those in our managed portfolio. Industry-wide for AL facilities, occupancy is near its lowest level since 2006 and labor cost growth is near its highest level since 2007. However, industry rate growth has continued to improve throughout 2018, increasing 2.8% year over year, with IL (up 3.1%) outperforming AL (up 2.4%).

The value of our existing portfolio could be impacted by new construction, as well as increased availability and popularity of home health care or other alternatives to senior housing, by hampering occupancy and rate growth, along with increasing operating expenses.
  
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
Segment Overview
 
We evaluate our business operations and allocate resources based on two segments: (i) Managed Properties and (ii) Triple Net Lease Properties. Under our Managed Properties segment, we own 132 properties managed by property managers under property management agreements. Under our Triple Net Lease Properties segment, we own and lease a property under a triple net master lease agreement.

Effective May 14, 2018, we terminated our triple net leases with respect to the properties in the Holiday Portfolio and concurrently entered into property management agreements with Holiday with respect to such properties. The NOI for such properties following the Lease Termination has been included in the Managed Properties segment. This resulted in a significant increase in the segment NOI of the Managed Properties with a corresponding decrease in the segment NOI of the Triple Net Lease Properties during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018.

Net Operating Income

We evaluate performance of these reportable business segments based on segment NOI. We consider NOI an important supplemental measure used to evaluate the operating performance of our segments because it allows investors, analysts and our management to assess our unleveraged property-level operating results and to compare our operating results between periods and to the operating results of other real estate companies on a consistent basis. We define NOI as total revenues less property operating expense.

Our Managed Properties segment is comprised of independent living and assisted living senior housing properties that are operated by property managers to whom we pay a management fee. Our Triple Net Lease Properties segment comprises senior housing properties leased on a long-term basis, and our tenants are typically responsible for bearing property-related expenses including maintenance, utilities, taxes, insurance, repairs, capital improvements and the payroll expense of property-level employees. Depreciation and amortization, interest expense, acquisition, transaction and integration expense, management fees and incentive compensation to affiliate, general and administrative expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, other expense (income), gain on sale of real estate, gain on lease termination and income tax expense (benefit) are not allocated to individual segments for purposes of assessing segment performance. Because of such differences in our exposure to property operating results, each segment requires a different type of management focus. As such, these segments are managed separately. In deciding how to allocate resources and assess performance, our chief operating decision maker regularly evaluates the performance of our reportable segments on the basis of NOI.

Same Store

Same store information is intended to enable management to evaluate the performance of a consistent portfolio of real estate in a manner that eliminates variances attributable to changes in the composition of our portfolio over time, due to sales and various other factors. Properties acquired, sold, transitioned to other operators or between segments, or classified as held for sale during the comparable periods are excluded from the same store amounts. Accordingly, same store segment results exclude the performance of the Holiday Portfolio, which was transitioned from the Triple Net Lease segment to the Managed Properties segment as a result of the Lease Termination in May 2018.

Resident fees and services
 
Total resident fees and services increased $31.5 million. An increase of $40.0 million is attributable to the fees from the Holiday Portfolio, which are included in the Managed Properties segment following the Lease Termination. This increase was offset by a decrease of $8.4 million attributable to the revenue of nine sold properties.
 
Same store resident fees and services was flat as a decrease in average occupancy rates was offset by an increase in average rental rates

23


 
Property operating expense
 
Property operating expense increased $18.5 million. An increase of $24.5 million is attributable to the property operating expense related to the Holiday Portfolio, which is included in the Managed Properties segment following the Lease Termination. This increase was partially offset by a decrease of $6.9 million attributable to the operating expense of nine sold properties. The remaining increase was primarily attributable to higher labor costs and property taxes.
 
Property operating expense includes property management fees and travel reimbursements paid to the property managers of $6.3 million and $5.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Same store property operating expense increased $0.8 million, primarily due to higher labor costs and property taxes.
 
Segment NOI
 
Total segment NOI and same store segment NOI increased by $13.0 million and decreased by $1.0 million, respectively. See above for the variance explanations.

Total segment NOI decreased $26.7 million, primarily due to the Lease Termination effective on May 14, 2018 and the sale of six properties in the fourth quarter of 2017. As a percentage of rental revenue, segment NOI was 100% of revenue for each fiscal year as the lessee operates the property and bears the related costs, including maintenance, utilities, taxes, insurance, repairs, capital improvements and the payroll expense of property-level employees.

Expenses
 
Depreciation and amortization
 
Depreciation and amortization expense decreased $12.8 million, primarily due to certain intangibles becoming fully amortized.

Interest expense
 
Interest expense increased $5.4 million, primarily due to a higher effective interest rate on the Term Loan with an aggregate principal amount of $720.0 million, which facilitated the repayment of $663.8 million of secured loans in conjunction with the Lease Termination. The weighted average effective interest rate for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was 5.82% and 4.42%, respectively.

Acquisition, transaction and integration expense
 
Acquisition, transaction and integration expense increased $0.9 million, primarily due to costs associated with our review of strategic alternatives to maximize stockholder value. This increase was partially offset by lower transaction related reimbursement to the Manager.
 

24


Management fees and incentive compensation to affiliate
 
Management fees and incentive compensation to affiliate expense remained relatively unchanged during the comparative periods.

General and administrative expense
 
General and administrative expense decreased $0.7 million, primarily due to a lower reimbursement to the Manager and a decrease in professional fees and franchise taxes.

Other expense

Other expense decreased $0.7 million, primarily due to hurricane damage remediation costs of $0.9 million, offset by bank interest income of $0.3 million earned in 2018.

Other

Income tax expense

We are organized and conduct our operations to qualify as a REIT under the requirements of the Code. However, certain of our activities are conducted through our TRS and therefore are subject to federal and state income taxes. Income tax expense increased primarily due to higher state taxes incurred in 2018.
