MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Physicians Realty Trust (NYSE: DOC) (the “Company,” the “Trust,” “we,” “our” and “us”), a self-managed healthcare real estate investment trust, today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

John T. Thomas, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Trust, commented, “At Physicians Realty Trust, we have remained dedicated to providing long-term value to our shareholders by continuing to partner with leading providers in the industry. We have experienced great performance from our existing medical office portfolio and are on track to meet the acquisition expectations set earlier this year. We are pleased to announce a positive resolution on our LTACH facilities as we transition and establish our relationship with LifeCare 2.0, LLC. After the quarter ended, we also completed the sale of the Foundation Surgical Hospital in El Paso, Texas.”

“We look forward to discussing our quarterly performance, as well as our thoughts for the remainder of the year, during today’s conference call,” Mr. Thomas concluded.

Third Quarter Financial Results

Total revenue for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019 was $107.6 million, an increase of 2% from the third quarter 2018. As of September 30, 2019, the portfolio was 96% leased.

Total expenses for the third quarter 2019 were $92.4 million, a decrease of 3% from the same period in 2018. Interest expense and depreciation and amortization decreased $0.1 million and $6.1 million, respectively, which was partially offset by a $1.6 million increase in operating expenses.

Net income for the third quarter 2019 was $15.6 million, compared to net income of $23.8 million for the third quarter 2018.

Net income attributable to common shareholders for the third quarter 2019 was $14.7 million. Diluted earnings per share for the third quarter 2019 was $0.08 based on approximately 192.0 million weighted average common shares and operating partnership units (“OP Units”) outstanding.

Funds from operations (FFO) for the third quarter 2019 consisted of net income, plus $36.5 million of depreciation and amortization, less $0.4 million of gain on sale of investment properties, less $0.5 million of other adjustments, resulting in $0.27 per share and OP unit on a fully diluted basis. Normalized FFO, which adjusts for net changes in fair value, was $51.2 million, or $0.27 per share and OP unit on a fully diluted basis.

Normalized funds available for distribution (FAD) for the third quarter 2019, which consists of normalized FFO adjusted for non-cash share compensation, straight-line rent adjustments, amortization of acquired above-market and below-market leases and assumed debt, amortization of lease inducements, amortization of deferred financing costs, and recurring capital expenditures, was $47.7 million.

Our MOB Same-Store portfolio, which includes 237 properties representing approximately 91% of our net leasable square footage, generated year-over-year Cash NOI growth of 3.3% for the third quarter 2019.

Update on LifeCare Facilities

As discussed in the Company’s press release dated May 30, 2019, LifeCare Holdings LLC, along with several related entities, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in order to facilitate a sale process under bankruptcy protection. The Company did not receive contractually-owed rent payments for April and May 2019, representing an aggregate $0.8 million in lost cash rent. The payment of contractual rent on the related master-lease resumed in June 2019 and full monthly rent has been paid continuously since then. The Company has received a note receivable from the tenant for approximately $1.1 million bearing interest at a rate of 10.0% per year representing past due rent, real estate taxes, late charges, interest owed under the master lease, and legal fees that will be paid in monthly installments over 12 months.

This press release includes Funds From Operations (FFO), Normalized FFO, Normalized Funds Available For Distribution (FAD), Net Operating Income (NOI), Cash NOI, MOB Same-Store Cash NOI, Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization for Real Estate (EBITDAre) and Adjusted EBITDAre, which are non-GAAP financial measures. For purposes of the SEC’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, we have provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

We believe that information regarding FFO is helpful to shareholders and potential investors because it facilitates an understanding of the operating performance of our properties without giving effect to real estate depreciation and amortization, which assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes ratably over time. We calculate FFO in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”). NAREIT defines FFO as net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP) before noncontrolling interests of holders of OP units, excluding preferred distributions, gains (or losses) on sales of depreciable operating property, impairment write-downs on depreciable assets, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs). Our FFO computation may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not compute FFO in accordance with NAREIT definition or that interpret the NAREIT definition differently than we do. The GAAP measure that we believe to be most directly comparable to FFO, net income, includes depreciation and amortization expenses, gains or losses on property sales, impairments, and noncontrolling interests. In computing FFO, we eliminate these items because, in our view, they are not indicative of the results from the operations of our properties. To facilitate a clear understanding of our historical operating results, FFO should be examined in conjunction with net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as presented in our financial statements. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, should not be considered to be an alternative to net income or loss (determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of our liquidity and is not indicative of funds available for our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions to shareholders.

We use Normalized FFO, which excludes from FFO net change in fair value of derivative financial instruments, acceleration of deferred financing costs, change in fair value of contingent consideration, and other normalizing items. However, our use of the term Normalized FFO may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies as they may have different methodologies for computing this amount. Normalized FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), as an indicator of our financial performance or of cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with GAAP), or as an indicator of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to make distributions. Normalized FFO should be reviewed in connection with other GAAP measurements.

We define Normalized FAD, a non-GAAP measure, which excludes from Normalized FFO non-cash share compensation expense, straight-line rent adjustments, amortization of acquired above- or below-market leases and assumed debt, amortization of lease inducements, amortization of deferred financing costs, and recurring capital expenditures related to tenant improvements and leasing commissions, and includes cash payments from seller master leases and rent abatement payments. Other REITs or real estate companies may use different methodologies for calculating Normalized FAD, and accordingly, our computation may not be comparable to those reported by other REITs. Although our computation of Normalized FAD may not be comparable to that of other REITs, we believe Normalized FAD provides a meaningful supplemental measure of our performance due to its frequency of use by analysts, investors, and other interested parties in the evaluation of our performance as a REIT. Normalized FAD should not be considered as an alternative to net income or loss attributable to controlling interest (computed in accordance with GAAP) or as an indicator of our financial performance. Normalized FAD should be reviewed in connection with other GAAP measurements.

NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure that is defined as net income or loss, computed in accordance with GAAP, generated from our total portfolio of properties before general and administrative expenses, depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, net change in the fair value of derivative financial instruments, gain or loss on the sale of investment properties, and impairment losses. We believe that NOI provides an accurate measure of operating performance of our operating assets because NOI excludes certain items that are not associated with management of the properties. Our use of the term NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies as they may have different methodologies for computing this amount.

Cash NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure which excludes from NOI straight-line rent adjustments, amortization of acquired above and below market leases, and other non-cash and normalizing items. Other non-cash and normalizing items include items such as the amortization of lease inducements, payments received from seller master leases and rent abatements, and changes in fair value of contingent consideration. We believe that Cash NOI provides an accurate measure of the operating performance of our operating assets because it excludes certain items that are not associated with management of the properties. Additionally, we believe that Cash NOI is a widely accepted measure of comparative operating performance in the real estate community. Our use of the term Cash NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies as such other companies may have different methodologies for computing this amount.

MOB Same-Store Cash NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure which excludes from Cash NOI assets not held for the entire preceding five quarters, non-MOB assets, and other normalizing items not specifically related to the same-store property portfolio. Management considers MOB Same-Store Cash NOI a supplemental measure because it allows investors, analysts, and Company management to measure unlevered property-level operating results. Our use of the term MOB Same-Store Cash NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies, as such other companies may have different methodologies for computing this amount.

We define EBITDAre as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP plus depreciation and amortization, interest expense, loss (gain) on dispositions, and impairment loss. We define Adjusted EBITDAre as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP plus depreciation and amortization, interest expense, loss (gain) on dispositions, impairment loss, non-cash share compensation expense, non-cash changes in fair value, and other normalizing items. We consider EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre important measures because they provide additional information to allow management, investors, and our current and potential creditors to evaluate and compare our core operating results and our ability to service debt.
