Medical Properties Trust, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and 2011 Results

Will Discuss Major Acquisition on Conference Call

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 31, 2012-- Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE: MPW) today announced financial and operating results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011. The Company also disclosed that it will describe a major new acquisition on its scheduled conference call.

FOURTH QUARTER AND RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Reported fourth quarter Normalized Funds from Operations (“FFO”) and Adjusted FFO (“AFFO”) per diluted share of $0.19 and $0.19, respectively, in-line with Company guidance;
  • Completed more than $311 million of investments in 2011;
  • Closed the $75.0 million Hoboken University Medical Center transaction in November;
  • Entered into a $30.0 million agreement with an affiliate of a national hospital operating company in October to acquire, provide for development funding and lease three emergency room-focused acute care hospitals in the San Antonio market;
  • Sold two hospitals to tenants for $41.1 million, resulting in gains of $5.4 million; and
  • Paid 2011 fourth quarter cash dividend of $0.20 per share on January 5, 2012.

OPERATING RESULTS

The Company reported fourth quarter 2011 Normalized FFO and AFFO of $20.5 million and $21.2 million, respectively, or $0.19 per diluted share, for both measures. Normalized FFO and AFFO for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $18.2 million and $18.6 million, respectively, or $0.17 per diluted share for both measures.

The Company recorded gains of $5.4 million during the quarter, $0.05 per diluted share, resulting from the sale of the real estate of the Sherman Oaks Hospital in California to an affiliate of Prime Healthcare Services and the sale of the real estate of the HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Morgantown to an affiliate of HealthSouth Corporation. As a result of the Sherman Oaks Hospital sale, the Company wrote-off approximately $1.2 million of accrued straight-line rent. In addition, $1.3 million of straight-line rent was written-off related to a change in operator in the Company’s long-term acute care hospital in Dallas pursuant to an exchange of licenses between Vibra Healthcare and LifeCare Holdings.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $12.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to $10.6 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, for the same period in 2010.

For the year ended December 31, 2011, Normalized FFO and AFFO were $78.0 million and $80.0 million, or $0.71 and $0.72 per diluted share, respectively. For the corresponding period in 2010, Normalized FFO and AFFO were $66.6 million and $81.5 million, or $0.66 and $0.81 per diluted share, respectively. Net income for 2011 was $26.5 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, compared to $22.9 million or $0.22 per diluted share in 2010.

A reconciliation of Normalized FFO and AFFO to net income is included in the financial tables accompanying this press release.

DIVIDEND

The Company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.20 per share of common stock, which was paid on January 5, 2012, to stockholders of record on December 8, 2011.

PORTFOLIO UPDATE AND FUTURE OUTLOOK

As previously disclosed, in October, the Company entered into agreements with a joint venture of Emerus Holding, Inc. and Baptist Health System, to acquire, provide for development funding and lease three acute care hospitals for $30.0 million in the rapidly growing suburban markets of San Antonio, Texas. The three facilities will be leased under a master lease structure with an initial term of 15 years and three five-year extension options.

On November 4, 2011, the Company completed the previously announced transaction for Hoboken University Medical Center (“HUMC”) in Hoboken, New Jersey, a 350-bed acute care facility. The total investment for this transaction was $75.0 million comprising $50.0 million for the acquisition of the real estate, a secured working capital loan of up to $20.0 million, and a $5.0 million convertible note which provides the Company with the option to acquire up to 25% of the hospital operator. The lease with the tenant has an initial term of 15 years and contains six five-year extension options.

At December 31, 2011, the Company had total real estate investments of approximately $1.5 billion comprised of 62 healthcare properties in 21 states leased to 20 hospital operating companies. Two of these investments are in the form of mortgage loans.

Based solely on the portfolio as of December 31, 2011, and assuming the completion of the Florence hospital currently under construction in Florence, Arizona, as previously announced, the Company estimates that annualized Normalized FFO per share would approximate $0.72 to $0.76 per diluted share.

This estimate does not include the effects, if any, of real estate operating costs, litigation costs, debt refinancing costs, acquisition costs, new interest rate hedging activities, write-offs of straight-line rent or other non-recurring or unplanned transactions; nor do they include earnings, if any, from the Company’s profits interests or other investments in lessees. This estimate will change if the Company acquires additional assets, market interest rates change, debt is refinanced, new common shares are issued, additional debt is incurred, assets are sold, the Company’s River Oaks property is leased, other operating expenses vary or existing leases do not perform in accordance with their terms.

TAX TREATMENT OF 2011 DIVIDENDS

Funds from operations, or FFO, represents net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of loan origination costs) and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Management considers funds from operations a useful additional measure of performance for an equity REIT 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 predictably over time. Since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, we believe that funds from operations provides a meaningful supplemental indication of our performance. We compute funds from operations in accordance with standards established by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, in its March 1995 White Paper (as amended in November 1999 and April 2002), which may differ from the methodology for calculating funds from operations utilized by other equity REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs. FFO does not represent amounts available for management's discretionary use because of needed capital replacement or expansion, debt service obligations, or other commitments and uncertainties, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to make distributions. Funds from operations should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) as indicators of our financial performance or to cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of our liquidity.

We calculate adjusted funds from operations, or AFFO, by subtracting from or adding to normalized FFO (i) straight-line rent revenue, (ii) non-cash share-based compensation expense, and (iii) amortization of deferred financing costs. AFFO is an operating measurement that we use to analyze our results of operations based on the receipt, rather than the accrual, of our rental revenue and on certain other adjustments. We believe that this is an important measurement because our leases generally have significant contractual escalations of base rents and therefore result in recognition of rental income that is not collected until future periods, and costs that are deferred or are non-cash charges. Our calculation of AFFO may not be comparable to AFFO or similarly titled measures reported by other REITs. AFFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income (calculated pursuant to GAAP) as an indicator of our results of operations or to cash flow from operating activities (calculated pursuant to GAAP) as an indicator of our liquidity.
