Community Healthcare Trust Announces Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2023

FRANKLIN, Tenn., Aug. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Community Healthcare Trust Incorporated (NYSE: CHCT) (the “Company”) today announced results for the three months ended June 30, 2023. The Company reported net income for the three months ended June 30, 2023 of approximately $6.6 million, or $0.24 per diluted common share. Funds from operations (“FFO”) and adjusted funds from operations (“AFFO”) for the three months ended June 30, 2023 totaled $0.62 and $0.63, respectively, per diluted common share. 

Items Impacting Our Results include:

  • During the three months ended June 30, 2023, the Company acquired three real estate properties and one land parcel for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $15.7 million. Upon acquisition, the properties totaling approximately 76,000 square feet, were 98.3% leased in the aggregate with lease expirations through 2033.
  • Subsequent to June 30, 2023, the Company acquired three medical office buildings and one inpatient rehabilitation facility in two separate transactions for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $35.6 million and cash consideration of approximately $35.7 million. Upon acquisition, the properties were 100.0% leased with lease expirations through 2038. These acquisitions were funded with proceeds from the Company’s Revolving Credit Facility.
  • The Company has three properties under definitive purchase agreements for an expected aggregate purchase price of approximately $16.1 million. The Company’s expected aggregate return on these investments ranges from approximately 9.2% to 10.3%. The Company expects to close on these properties in the third quarter of 2023; however, the Company cannot provide assurance as to the timing of when, or whether, these transactions will actually close.
  • The Company also has eight properties under definitive purchase agreements, to be acquired after completion and occupancy, for an aggregate expected purchase price of approximately $191.0 million. The Company’s expected returns on these investments are approximately 9.1% to 9.75%. The Company anticipates closing on these properties throughout 2023, 2024 and 2025; however, the Company cannot provide assurance as to the timing of when, or whether, these transactions will actually close.
  • During the second quarter of 2023, the Company issued, through its at-the-market offering program, 236,389 shares of common stock at an average gross sales price of $34.45 per share for net proceeds of approximately $8.0 million at an approximate 5.33% current equity yield.
  • The Company incurred property damage due to vandalism at a property in Houston, Texas which was covered by our insurance policies. The Company determined that the estimated amount of the casualty loss was approximately $1.6 million and received insurance proceeds totaling $2.3 million, resulting in a net casualty gain of approximately $0.7 million which was included in Interest and other income on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023.
  • On July 27, 2023, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly common stock dividend in the amount of $0.4525 per share. The dividend is payable on August 25, 2023 to stockholders of record on August 11, 2023.

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)

FFO includes a $0.7 million net casualty gain from insurance proceeds received related to one property that was vandalized. The net gain increased FFO by $0.03 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2023.

(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.
