Community Healthcare Trust Announces Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2024

FRANKLIN, Tenn., April 30, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Community Healthcare Trust Incorporated (NYSE: CHCT) (the “Company”) today announced results for the three months ended March 31, 2024. The Company reported net income for the three months ended March 31, 2024 of approximately $3.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted common share. Funds from operations (“FFO”) and adjusted funds from operations (“AFFO”) for the three months ended March 31, 2024 totaled $0.53 and $0.59, respectively, per diluted common share. 

Items Impacting Our Results include:

  • During the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company acquired four real estate properties for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $34.2 million. Upon acquisition, the properties totaling approximately 165,000 square feet, were 98.6% leased in the aggregate with lease expirations through 2039.

  • Subsequent to March 31, 2024, the Company acquired one inpatient rehabilitation facility for a purchase price and cash consideration of approximately $23.5 million. Upon acquisition, the property was 100.0% leased with a lease expiration in 2039. The acquisition was funded with proceeds from the Company’s Revolving Credit Facility.

  • The Company has seven properties under definitive purchase agreements, to be acquired after completion and occupancy, for an aggregate expected purchase price of approximately $169.5 million. The Company’s expected returns on these investments are approximately 9.1% to 9.75%. The Company anticipates closing on one of these properties in the fourth quarter of 2024 with the remainder throughout 2025, 2026 and 2027; however, the Company cannot provide assurance as to the timing of when, or whether, these transactions will actually close.

  • During the first quarter of 2024, the Company issued, through its at-the-market offering program, approximately 19,000 shares of common stock at an average gross sales price of $27.51 per share for net proceeds of approximately $0.5 million at an approximate 6.79% current equity yield.

  • The Company has one property under a definitive sale agreement. The sales price less estimated costs to sell exceed the carrying value of the property. The Company expects to close on this property during the second or third quarter of 2024; however, the Company cannot provide assurance as to the timing of when, or whether, this transaction will actually close.

  • During the first quarter of 2024, the Company’s Board approved and adopted certain changes to executive compensation as described in more detail in the Company’s Proxy Statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 14, 2024. These changes were effective beginning January 1, 2024 for salary and long term equity incentive awards, and will be effective for annual bonuses with performance periods commencing on and after July 1, 2024.

  • Effective February 16, 2024, one of the Company’s tenants, GenesisCare and certain of its affiliates (“GenesisCare”), emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and GenesisCare U.S. is now an independent business delivering oncology and specialty care services in Florida and North Carolina. Of the Company’s seven leases with GenesisCare, five were assumed or assigned to buyers as part of the bankruptcy process and two remain with the GenesisCare U.S. entity.

  • On April 25, 2024, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly common stock dividend in the amount of $0.46 per share. The dividend is payable on May 24, 2024 to stockholders of record on May 10, 2024.

(1)

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 is an operating performance measure 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, gains and losses from change in control, 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, plus depreciation and amortization related to real estate properties, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. 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.

 

In addition to FFO, the Company presents AFFO and AFFO per share. The Company defines AFFO as FFO, excluding certain expenses related to closing costs of properties acquired accounted for as business combinations and mortgages funded, excluding straight-line rent and the amortization of stock-based compensation, and including or excluding other non-cash items from time to time. 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)

In the first quarter of 2023, the Company accelerated the amortization of stock-based compensation upon the passing of our former CEO and President, impacting FFO per diluted share by $0.47.



(3)

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