CNL Lifestyle Properties Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

August 14, 2014

Orlando, Fla., Aug. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CNL Lifestyle Properties, Inc., a real estate investment trust ("we," "our" or "us"), today announced its operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Second Quarter 2014

•Total revenues increased $11.4 million, or 10.1 percent, as compared to the second quarter of 2013.   •Net loss decreased $46.7 million, or 84.6 percent, as compared to the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to a nonrecurring impairment provision recorded in June 2013.•Funds from Operations ("FFO") and FFO per share increased $4.4 million, or 16.9 percent and $0.01 per share, respectively, as compared to the second quarter of 2013.•Modified Funds from Operations ("MFFO") increased $6.0 million, or 23.3 percent and $0.02 per share, respectively, as compared to the second quarter of 2013.•Adjusted Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") increased $5.0 million, or 15.4 percent, as compared to the second quarter of 2013.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2014

•Total revenues increased $19.3 million, or 9.5 percent, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2013. •Net loss decreased $49.6 million, or 63.2 percent, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2013, primarily due to an impairment provision recorded in June 2013.•FFO and FFO per share increased $7.0 million, or 15.6 percent and $0.02 per share, respectively, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2013.•MFFO and MFFO per share increased $6.2 million, or 13.8 percent and $0.02 per share, respectively, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2013.•Adjusted EBITDA decreased $2.4 million, or 3.6 percent, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2013.

The increase in FFO and MFFO is primarily due to an increase in rental income from leased properties (for MFFO, rental revenue excluding straight-line adjustments for GAAP) acquired after the second quarter of 2013 as well as increases in "same-store" net operating income from managed properties. The increase was also due to a decrease in bad debt expense and reduced asset management fees resulting from the sale of our interest in 42 senior housing properties held through unconsolidated joint ventures, and a reduction in fees charged by our Advisor, effective April 1, 2014. The increases were partially offset by higher interest expense and loan cost amortization from additional borrowings made after June 30, 2013.

The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2014, is primarily a result of a reduction in cash distributions received from our unconsolidated entities due to the July 2013 sale of our interests in 42 senior living properties which were held in three unconsolidated entities. Net operating income and cash flows from these investments have been replaced as net sale proceeds have been reinvested. As a result of these new investments, as well as a reduction in bad debt expense and asset management fees, Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, exceeded Adjusted EBITDA for the same quarter in 2013.

The following table presents selected comparable financial data through June 30, 2014:

(1) Property operating results for tenants under leased arrangements are not included in our operating results.  Property level EBITDA above is disclosed before rent and capital reserve payments to us, as applicable.

(2) As of June 30, 2014, on trailing 12-month ("TTM") basis for properties subject to lease calculated as property level EBITDA before recurring capital expenditures divided by base rent.

Second Quarter 2014

•Property level revenue and property level EBITDA increased 5.9 percent and 35.3 percent, respectively, as compared to the second quarter of 2013.•Our ski and mountain lifestyle properties experienced an increase in revenue and EBITDA due to favorable late-season conditions in certain locations, inclusive of both snowfall and temperature, allowing some of our ski and mountain lifestyle properties to remain in operation through April. •Early season efforts to drive activity and visitation in our attractions properties resulted in a significant increase in season pass sales. In addition, favorable weather at certain of our attractions properties in the West contributed to an increase in attendance and strong early season operating results in certain of our attractions properties.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2014

•Revenue and property level EBITDA declined 0.6 percent and 1.6 percent, respectively, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2013.•Snow levels in the West (particularly in California) were significantly below historical norms during much of the 2013/2014 ski season as a result of warm temperatures and drought conditions. This caused our California resorts to experience poor operating results as compared to the 2012/2013 ski season.•Record-breaking cold temperatures and ice storms caused damage to the docks and other floating structures, which resulted in the temporary closure of our largest marina, reducing operating results. Additionally, our marinas were impacted by our proactive transition of the properties to multiple new managers, which was completed in April 2014.

The following table presents same-store, unaudited property level information of our senior housing properties as of and for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013:

 Number Occupancy

Senior housing 20  $3,910  $3,777 3.5%  $3,859  $3,761 2.6% 

The increase in revenue per occupied unit ("RevPOU") of 3.5 percent and 2.6 percent for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, as compared to the same periods in 2013 is due to an increase in average rate paid by our residents.

Acquisition Activity

During the six months ended June 30, 2014, we acquired four senior housing communities for an aggregate purchase price of $53.1 million


In June 2014 we completed the sale of our only multifamily residential property and received net sales proceeds of approximately $73.5 million. The net sales proceeds were used to retire debt. Also in June 2014, we signed a purchase and sale agreement to sell our golf portfolio comprised of 48 properties to a third-party buyer. We expect the transaction to be completed in 2014.


For the six months ended June 30, 2014, we declared and paid distributions of $68.7 million ($0.2126 per share). Our board of directors will continue to evaluate the level of distributions going forward, which will be based on a variety of factors including current and expected future cash flows from our properties.

Distribution Reinvestments and Redemptions

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, we issued approximately 4.0 million shares under our distribution reinvestment plan and received aggregate proceeds of $27.2 million. During the same period, we redeemed 0.9 million shares with a value of $6.0 million

Non-GAAP Supplemental Financial Measures

The Company computes its financial results in accordance with GAAP. Although FFO, MFFO and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures, the Company believes FFO, MFFO, and Adjusted EBITDA calculations are helpful to stockholders and are widely recognized measures of real estate investment trust ("REIT") operating performance. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided reconciliations to these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

The Company calculates and reports FFO in accordance with the definitional and interpretive guidelines established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"). NAREIT defines FFO as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains or losses from sales of property and real estate impairment write-downs, plus depreciation and amortization, and after similar adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company's FFO calculation complies with NAREIT's guidance described above. The Company believes that FFO, together with the GAAP measure of net income (loss), provides useful information to investors regarding the Company's operating performance because it is a measure of the Company's operations without regard to specific non-cash items, such as depreciation and amortization and asset impairment write-downs.

The Company calculates and reports MFFO in accordance with the Investment Program Association's ("IPA") Guideline 2010-01, Supplemental Performance Measure for Publicly Registered, Non-Listed REITs: Modified Funds from Operations, (the "Practice Guideline"), issued by the IPA in November 2010. The Practice Guideline defines MFFO as FFO further adjusted for the following items, as applicable, included in the determination of GAAP net income (loss): acquisition fees and expenses; amounts relating to the write-off of deferred rent receivables and other lease-related assets as well as amortization of above and below market leases and liabilities (which are adjusted in order to remove the impact of GAAP straight-line adjustments from rental revenues); accretion of discounts and amortization of premiums on debt investments; mark-to-market adjustments included in net income (loss); nonrecurring gains or losses included in net income (loss) from the extinguishment or sale of debt, hedges, foreign exchange, derivatives or securities holdings where trading of such holdings is not a fundamental attribute of the business plan; elimination of adjustments relating to contingent purchase price obligations where such adjustments have been included in the derivation of GAAP net income (loss); unrealized gains or losses resulting from consolidation from, or deconsolidation to, equity accounting; and after adjustments for consolidated and unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures, with such adjustments calculated to reflect MFFO on the same basis. The Company believes that MFFO is useful to investors in evaluating its performance because the exclusion of certain recurring and nonrecurring items described above provide useful supplemental information regarding its ongoing performance, and that MFFO, when combined with the primary GAAP measure of income (loss), is beneficial to a complete understanding of its operating performance.

Presentation of this information is intended to provide useful information to investors as they compare the operating performance of different REITs, although it should be noted that not all REITs calculate FFO and MFFO the same way. Accordingly, comparisons with other REITs may not be meaningful. FFO and MFFO are not necessarily indicative of cash flow available to fund cash needs and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) or income (loss) from continuing operations as an indication of our performance, as an alternative to cash flows from operations or as an indication of its liquidity, or indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs including our ability to make distributions to our stockholders. Stockholders and investors should not rely on FFO and MFFO as a substitute for any GAAP measure. MFFO has limitations as a performance measure in an offering such as the Company's where the price of a share of common stock is a stated value or based on an estimated net asset value. MFFO is useful in assisting management and investors in assessing the sustainability of operating performance in future operating periods, and, in particular, after the offering and acquisition stages are complete and net asset value is disclosed. FFO and MFFO are not useful measures in evaluating net asset value because impairments are taken into account in determining net asset value but not in determining FFO and MFFO.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), less discontinued operations and other income, plus (i) net interest expense and loan cost amortization and (ii) depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted for the impact of equity in earnings (loss) of our unconsolidated entities, straight-line adjustment for leased properties and mortgages and other rents receivable, cash distributions from unconsolidated entities, and certain other nonrecurring items that the Company does not consider indicative of its ongoing operating performance. These further adjustments are itemized in the table below. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons the Company considers them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. The Company's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that its future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items. 

The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes it assists investors and analysts in comparing its performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that it does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance.

For additional information, please refer to the Company's discussion of FFO, MFFO and Adjusted EBITDA included in Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on Aug. 13, 2014.

(1)  This amount represents our share of the FFO or MFFO adjustments allowable under the NAREIT or IPA definitions, respectively, multiplied by the percentage of income or loss recognized under the HLBV method.  

(2) In evaluating investments in real estate, management differentiates the costs to acquire the investment from the operations derived from the investment. By adding back acquisition fees and expense relating to business combinations, management believes MFFO provides useful supplemental information of its operating performance and will also allow comparability between real estate entities regardless of their level of acquisition activities. Acquisition fees and expenses include payments to our advisor or third parties. Acquisition fees and expenses relating to business combinations under GAAP are considered operating expenses and as expenses included in the determination of net income (loss) and income (loss) from continuing operations, both of which are performance measures under GAAP. All paid and accrued acquisition fees and expenses will have negative effects on returns to investors, the potential for future distributions, and cash flows generated by us, unless earnings from operations or net sales proceeds from the disposition of properties are generated to cover the purchase price of the property.

(3) Under GAAP, rental receipts are allocated to periods using various methodologies. This may result in income recognition that is significantly different than underlying contract terms. By adjusting for these items (to reflect such payments from a GAAP accrual basis to a cash basis of disclosing the rent and lease payments), MFFO provides useful supplemental information on the realized economic impact of lease terms and debt investments, providing insight on the contractual cash flows of such lease terms and debt investments, and aligns results with management's analysis of operating performance.

(4) (Gain) loss from early extinguishment of debt includes swap breakage fees, write-off of unamortized loan costs and reclassification of loss on termination of cash flow hedges from other comprehensive income (loss) into interest expense. 

(5) In June 2014, we recorded a loan loss provision on one of our mortgages and other notes receivable as a result of uncertainty related to the collectability of the note receivable.

(1) Investments in our unconsolidated joint ventures are accounted for under the HLBV method of accounting. Under this method, we recognize income or loss based on the change in liquidating proceeds we would receive from a hypothetical liquidation of our investments based on depreciated book value. We adjust EBITDA for equity in earnings (loss) of our unconsolidated entities because we believe this is not reflective of the joint ventures' operating performance or cash flows available for distributions to us. We believe cash distributions from our unconsolidated entities, exclusive of any financing transactions, are reflective of their operating performance and its impact to us and have been added back to adjusted EBITDA above. 

(2) We believe that adjusting for straight-line adjustments for leased properties and mortgages and other notes receivable is appropriate because they are noncash adjustments and reflect the actual cash receipts received by us from our tenants and borrowers.
