Operating Results

Commenting on the quarter’s operating results, Ensign’s President and Chief Executive Officer Christopher Christensen said, “We are pleased to report that the improvements we experienced in the first quarter continued, resulting in a very strong second quarter, especially in our most mature operations.” Christensen added, “We are excited about the positive momentum in same-store skilled nursing revenue and same-store skilled mix revenue, which increased by 4.2% and 3.1%, respectively, over the prior year quarter.” Noting that the Company expected to experience some typical second quarter seasonality, he highlighted the significant quarter over quarter improvement in adjusted earnings per share and consolidated adjusted net income, which increased by 41.9% and 47.3%, respectively, over the prior year quarter.

“We are reaffirming our 2018 annual earnings per share guidance to between $1.80 and $1.87 per diluted share. Overall, the midpoint of this guidance represents a 31.1% increase over our annual earnings for 2017,” Christensen said. He also remarked that even without the Company’s lower effective income tax rate, which was reduced from 35.5% in 2017 to an estimated 25.0% for 2018, the midpoint of management’s guidance represents a 15.7% increase over 2017 results. “We are very excited about the future and look forward to continuing to drive quality healthcare outcomes and corresponding financial results,” he said.

Christensen also stated that the Company’s operating subsidiaries in several states have renewed their focus on applying proven best-practices in every transition. As a result of these efforts, during the quarter the Company’s 2017 and 2018 acquisitions collectively achieved an EBIT margin that is 760 basis points higher than its 2015 and 2016 acquisitions. “These results not only show healthier transitions, but also demonstrate the enormous potential that remains in our overall portfolio. We have great confidence that the combination of our locally-driven operating model, along with the backing of our world-class Service Center, will continue to create enormous organic growth in our newly acquired, transitioning and same-store buckets,” Christensen said.

“We are also pleased to report that Bridgestone Living LLC, Ensign’s assisted living and independent living portfolio company, which now consists of 51 stand-alone operations and 22 campuses in 12 states, grew its segment revenue and income by 12.6% and 35.8%, respectively, over the prior year quarter,” Christensen stated. He also noted that Cornerstone Healthcare, Inc., Ensign’s home health and hospice portfolio subsidiary, grew its segment revenue and income by 20.7% and 27.3%, respectively, over the prior year quarter. “Each segment’s leadership team has independently driven their respective businesses to achieve outstanding results. As they do so, we continue to evaluate ways in which we can enhance operational synergies while also ensuring that all of our affiliated operations will continue to create long-term shareholder value,” Christensen added.

Chief Financial Officer Suzanne Snapper reported that, “Our liquidity remains strong with approximately $235 million of availability as of today on Ensign’s $450 million credit facility, which also has a built-in expansion option, and 48 unlevered real estate assets that add additional borrowing capacity.” She also noted that the Company’s net-debt-to-EBITDAR ratio went down again this quarter to 4.0x in spite of additional borrowings incurred during the quarter to acquire certain real estate assets. She also indicated that cash generated from operations was $101.2 million in the six months ended June 30, 2018, which was primarily driven by an increase in operating results, stronger collections and lower taxes.

A discussion of the company’s use of non-GAAP financial measures is set forth below. A reconciliation of net income to EBITDA, adjusted EBITDAR and adjusted EBITDA, as well as a reconciliation of GAAP earnings per share, net income to adjusted net earnings per share and adjusted net income, appear in the financial data portion of this release. More complete information is contained in the company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, which is expected to be filed with the SEC today and can be viewed on the company’s website at http://www.ensigngroup.net.

Quarter Highlights

During the quarter, Ensign paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.045 per share of its common stock during the quarter. Ensign has been a dividend-paying company since 2002 and has increased its dividend every year for 16 years.

In April, Ensign announced that Bandera Healthcare, Inc., the Company’s Arizona-based portfolio company, acquired the real estate and operations of Peoria Post Acute and Rehabilitation, a 128-bed skilled nursing facility located in Peoria, Arizona. The acquisition was effective April 1, 2018. The facility also included an adjacent 50-bed long-term acute care hospital that is currently operated by a third party under a lease arrangement. “While we continue to evaluate many potential acquisition opportunities with extreme care and thought, this operation stood out as one that shows significant long-term potential while adding strength to our growing footprint in Arizona,” he added.

In May, Keystone Care LLC, the Company’s Texas-based portfolio company, acquired the real estate and operations of Grace Presbyterian Village, a 26-acre post-acute care and retirement campus located in Dallas, Texas. The acquisition was effective May 1, 2018. “This acquisition adds to our expanding footprint in the Dallas area and adds to our ability to accelerate the quality of care we can provide to our patients and their loved ones,” Mr. Christensen said.

In June, Bandera also acquired the operations of Sun West Choice Healthcare and Rehabilitation, a 140-bed skilled nursing facility in Sun City West, Arizona, and entered into a new long-term lease. The acquisition was effective June 1, 2018. “Sun West Choice is a perfect example of an off-market acquisition resulting from relationships built by our local operators over many years,” said Mr. Christensen.

In July, Ensign also announced that Pennant Healthcare, Inc., its Northwest-based portfolio subsidiary, acquired the real estate and operations of McCall Rehabilitation and Care Center, a 40-bed skilled nursing facility located in McCall, Idaho. “Our history and track record of successful acquisitions, together with the talented leaders and staff in Idaho that seek to be the provider of choice in their respective communities, give us the confidence to pursue opportunities in the state both big and small,” Christensen said.

Ensign also recently announced during the quarter that a wholly-owned subsidiary acquired an office building located in San Juan Capistrano, California. “We are thrilled about our purchase of office space in nearby San Juan Capistrano to accommodate our growing Service Center team,” Christensen said. “With our existing lease in Mission Viejo set to expire in 2019, we diligently reviewed current market conditions as well as the Service Center’s short- and long-term real estate needs. After considering dozens of possibilities over the last 18 months, we determined that owning the Service Center made the most sense financially and operationally,” he added.

Ensign reported that the commercial real estate property consists of approximately 115,517 square feet of usable office space, and that the building was 92% occupied by third-party tenants at the time of acquisition. The Company closed with cash drawn from its revolver.

“We carefully selected this space based on the attractive and convenient location for our current and future team members, as well as our third-party tenants. With this ownership, we not only expect to save millions of dollars in future rental increases for decades to come, but we are most excited about the ability this will give us to continue to attract and retain the best and brightest Service Center leaders,” he added.

The Company expects Ensign Services to occupy a portion of the space upon termination of its existing office leases in 2019. Ensign also expects to continue market-rate third-party leasing arrangements for any space not occupied by Ensign Services.

These additions bring Ensign’s growing portfolio to 185 skilled nursing operations, 22 of which also include assisted living operations, 51 assisted and independent living operations, 22 hospice agencies, 21 home health agencies and five home care businesses across fifteen states. Ensign owns the real estate at 68 of its 236 healthcare facilities. Mr. Christensen reaffirmed that Ensign continues to actively seek transactions to acquire real estate and to lease both well-performing and struggling skilled nursing, assisted living and other healthcare related businesses in new and existing markets.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA consists of net income before (a) interest expense, net, (b) provisions for income taxes and (c) depreciation and amortization. EBITDAR consists of net income before (a) interest expense, net, (b) provisions for income taxes, (c) depreciation and amortization and (d) rent-cost of services. Adjusted EBITDA consists of net income before (a) interest expense, net, (b) provisions for income taxes, (c) depreciation and amortization, (d) (earnings)/losses related to operations currently being constructed and other start-up operations, excluding depreciation, interest and income taxes, (e) results of closed operations and facilities not at full operation, excluding depreciation, interest and income taxes, (f) share-based compensation expense, (g) return of unclaimed class action settlement and charges related to class action lawsuit, (h) business interruption recoveries, and (i) patient base and other transaction-related costs. Adjusted EBITDAR consists of net income before (a) interest expense, net, (b) provisions for income taxes, (c) depreciation and amortization, (d) rent-cost of services, (e) (earnings)/losses related to facilities currently being constructed and other start-up operations, excluding rent, depreciation, interest and income taxes, (f) results of closed operation and facilities not at full operation, excluding rent, depreciation, interest and income taxes, (g) share-based compensation expense, (h) return of unclaimed class action settlement and charges related to class action lawsuit, (i) business interruption recoveries and (j) patient base and other transaction-related costs. The company believes that the presentation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDAR, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share provides important supplemental information to management and investors to evaluate the company’s operating performance. The company believes disclosure of adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDAR has economic substance because the excluded revenues and expenses are infrequent in nature and are variable in nature, or do not represent current revenues or cash expenditures. A material limitation associated with the use of these measures as compared to the GAAP measures of net income and diluted earnings per share is that they may not be comparable with the calculation of net income and diluted earnings per share for other companies in the company’s industry. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. For further information regarding why the company believes that this non-GAAP measure provides useful information to investors, the specific manner in which management uses this measure, and some of the limitations associated with the use of this measure, please refer to the company’s periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The company’s periodic filings are available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or under the “Financial Information” link of the Investor Relations section on Ensign’s website at http://www.ensigngroup.net.
