MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Physicians Realty Trust (NYSE: DOC) (the “Company,” the “Trust,” “we,” “our” and “us”), a self-managed health care real estate investment trust, today announced results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2020.

John T. Thomas, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Trust, commented, “Our success in 2020 resulted from attention to our core values summarized by C.A.R.E. We Collaborate & communicate, Act with integrity, Respect the relationship, and Execute consistently. In 2020 we remained disciplined, operationally and financially, to deliver safer health care facilities for our providers and their patients, as well as safer results for our shareholders. From the onset of the pandemic through December 31, 2020 we collected cash equal to over 99% of all rent and other charges due from our tenants, culminating in the collection of 99.6% of rent due in the fourth quarter. We ended 2020 with the lowest outstanding accounts receivable balance we have ever had as a percentage of revenue and an occupancy rate of 96%, the highest of all public owners of medical office facilities. While the equity market was volatile, we ended the year with the best total shareholder return of any public REIT with a significant medical office portfolio. We believe the quality of our health care service providers, clinically and financially, was the primary reason for our solid financial results.

“With the distribution of vaccines in early 2021 and the expectation of returning to ‘normal,’ we will continue to Invest in better® with a focus on acquisitions and financing new development for growth, our commitment to ESG, and the communities we serve. We look forward to discussing fourth quarter performance, as well as our expectations for 2021 during today’s conference call,” Mr. Thomas concluded.

Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Total revenue for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2020 was $111.4 million, an increase of 3.7% from the fourth quarter 2019. As of December 31, 2020, the portfolio was 96% leased.

Total expenses for the fourth quarter 2020 were $98.3 million, compared to total expenses of $92.4 million for the fourth quarter 2019.

Net income for the fourth quarter 2020 was $18.6 million, compared to net income of $42.8 million for the fourth quarter 2019. Net income in the fourth quarter 2019 included $27.9 million of net gains on the sale of investment properties.

Net income attributable to common shareholders for the fourth quarter 2020 was $17.7 million. Diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter 2020 was $0.08 based on approximately 215.8 million weighted average common shares and operating partnership units (“OP Units”) outstanding.

Funds from operations (FFO) for the fourth quarter 2020 consisted of net income plus depreciation and amortization on our consolidated portfolio of $37.7 million and our unconsolidated joint ventures of $1.8 million and an impairment loss of $4.9 million. This was partially offset by a gain on sale of investment properties of $5.8 million and $0.5 million of other adjustments, resulting in $0.26 per share on a fully diluted basis. Normalized FFO had no additional adjustments and was also $56.7 million, or $0.26 per share on a fully diluted basis.

Normalized funds available for distribution (FAD) for the fourth quarter 2020, which consists of normalized FFO adjusted for non-cash share compensation, straight-line rent adjustments, amortization of acquired above-market and below-market leases and assumed debt, amortization of lease inducements, amortization of deferred financing costs, recurring capital expenditures, loan reserve adjustments, and our share of adjustments from unconsolidated investments was $53.0 million.

Our MOB Same-Store portfolio, which includes 246 properties representing approximately 93% of our net leasable square footage, generated year-over-year MOB Same-Store Cash Net Operating Income (Cash NOI) growth of 1.5% for the fourth quarter 2020.

Other Recent Events

Fourth Quarter Investment Activity

Since our November 6, 2020 press release and through December 31, 2020, the Company completed investments of $187.7 million as follows:

Health Center at Easton - On November 23, 2020, the Company completed the acquisition of a 40,000 square foot medical office facility in Easton, Pennsylvania, from J.G. Petrucci Company for a purchase price of approximately $15.8 million. This single-tenant facility was built in 2017 and is 100% leased to Lehigh Valley Health Network (Moody’s: ‘A2’) with a remaining term of approximately 11 years and is part of Lehigh Valley Health’s strategic initiative to consolidate community care into one central location for area residents. Onsite services include pediatrics, cardiology, imaging, and lab services. The first year unlevered yield on this investment is expected to be approximately 5.3%.

Hartford HealthCare Cancer Center - On December 8, 2020, the Company completed the acquisition of a 37,581 square foot medical office facility in Manchester, Connecticut, for a purchase price of approximately $16.9 million. This single-tenant facility was built in 2017 and is 100% leased to Hartford HealthCare (S&P: ‘A’), with a remaining lease term of approximately 12 years. This three-story cancer center offers comprehensive oncology services, cardiology services, a full pharmacy, and a rooftop terrace for patients and their families. This acquisition marks our third property in the Hartford, Connecticut metro area and the first year unlevered yield on this investment is expected to be approximately 5.5%.

Davis Joint Venture - On December 11, 2020, the Company contributed $18.3 million to acquire a 49% equity interest in Davis Medical Investors, LLC (“Davis Joint Venture”). This joint venture owns eight medical office facilities located in four states. This investment is valued at approximately $55.3 million including the Company’s pro-rata share of joint venture debt. The 309,777 square foot portfolio is 96% leased, with 100% of the square footage located in top 50 MSAs. Including fees generated from the Company’s performance of property management services on behalf of the joint venture, the first year unlevered and levered returns are expected to be 6.2% and 8.0%, respectively.

Sacred Heart Summit Medical Office and ASC - On December 18, 2020, the Company completed the acquisition of a 56,800 square foot medical office facility located in Pensacola, Florida for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $32.4 million. This investment was funded through the satisfaction of a previously outstanding construction loan of $29.1 million and additional consideration of $3.3 million consisting of an aggregate 167,779 OP Units issued by Physicians Realty L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”) valued at approximately $3.1 million on the date of issuance and $0.2 million of cash. For this investment, the Company provided funds for the initial project development with the right to purchase the facility upon completion of construction. Construction was completed in 2020 and Sacred Heart Hospital, an Ascension (Moody’s: ‘Aa2’) ministry, took occupancy and began a 100% lease of the facility with a 15-year term. This facility is predominantly clinical and procedure-focused, including a 26,000 square foot surgery center, an advanced imaging center, a women's clinic, dermatology, and internal medicine. The first year unlevered yield on this investment is expected to be approximately 6.3%.

Westerville II MOB - On December 23, 2020, the Company completed the acquisition of a 35,264 square foot medical office facility located in Westerville, Ohio for a purchase price of approximately $5.4 million.

Landmark Mezzanine Loan Portfolio - During December 2020, the Company funded nine mezzanine loans with Landmark Healthcare Facilities with an aggregate value of $54.3 million. The loans have a weighted average interest rate of 7.9% and mature between 2023 and 2025. This mezzanine financing agreement will give the Company contractual rights of first offer and other potential rights to purchase each asset included in the pool once Landmark Healthcare Facilities decides to sell. These medical office facilities are primarily leased to and anchored by leading nonprofit health care systems in nine metropolitan markets totaling approximately 1.1 million rentable square feet and are 94% occupied.

The Company also funded $7.5 million of other mezzanine loans and a $0.3 million term loan.

This press release includes Funds From Operations (FFO), Normalized FFO, Normalized Funds Available For Distribution (FAD), Net Operating Income (NOI), Cash NOI, MOB Same-Store Cash NOI, Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization for Real Estate (EBITDAre) and Adjusted EBITDAre, which are non-GAAP financial measures. For purposes of the SEC’s Regulation G, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of operations, balance sheet or statement of cash flows (or equivalent statements) of the company, or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable financial measure so calculated and presented. As used in this press release, GAAP refers to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, we have provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

We believe that information regarding FFO is helpful to shareholders and potential investors 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 ratably over time. We calculate FFO in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“Nareit”). Nareit defines FFO as net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP) before noncontrolling interests of holders of OP units, excluding preferred distributions, gains (or losses) on sales of depreciable operating property, impairment write-downs on depreciable assets, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs). Our FFO computation includes our share of required adjustments from our unconsolidated joint ventures and may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not compute FFO in accordance with the Nareit definition or that interpret the Nareit definition differently than we do. The GAAP measure that we believe to be most directly comparable to FFO, net income, includes depreciation and amortization expenses, gains or losses on property sales, impairments, and noncontrolling interests. In computing FFO, we eliminate these items because, in our view, they are not indicative of the results from the operations of our properties. To facilitate a clear understanding of our historical operating results, FFO should be examined in conjunction with net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as presented in our financial statements. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, should not be considered to be an alternative to net income or loss (determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of our liquidity and is not indicative of funds available for our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions to shareholders.

We use Normalized FFO, which excludes from FFO net change in fair value of derivative financial instruments, acceleration of deferred financing costs, change in fair value of contingent consideration, and other normalizing items. However, our use of the term Normalized FFO may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies as they may have different methodologies for computing this amount. Normalized FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), as an indicator of our financial performance or of cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with GAAP), or as an indicator of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to make distributions. Normalized FFO should be reviewed in connection with other GAAP measurements.

We define Normalized FAD, a non-GAAP measure, which excludes from Normalized FFO non-cash share compensation expense, straight-line rent adjustments, amortization of acquired above-market or below-market leases and assumed debt, amortization of lease inducements, amortization of deferred financing costs, recurring capital expenditures related to tenant improvements and leasing commissions, loan reserve adjustments, and cash payments from seller master leases and rent abatement payments, including our share of all required adjustments from unconsolidated joint ventures. Other REITs or real estate companies may use different methodologies for calculating Normalized FAD, and accordingly, our computation may not be comparable to those reported by other REITs. Although our computation of Normalized FAD may not be comparable to that of other REITs, we believe Normalized FAD provides a meaningful supplemental measure of our performance due to its frequency of use by analysts, investors, and other interested parties in the evaluation of our performance as a REIT. Normalized FAD should not be considered as an alternative to net income or loss attributable to controlling interest (computed in accordance with GAAP) or as an indicator of our financial performance. Normalized FAD should be reviewed in connection with other GAAP measurements.

NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure that is defined as net income or loss, computed in accordance with GAAP, generated from our total portfolio of properties and other investments before general and administrative expenses, depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, net change in the fair value of derivative financial instruments, gain or loss on the sale of investment properties, and impairment losses, including our share of all required adjustments from our unconsolidated joint ventures. We believe that NOI provides an accurate measure of operating performance of our operating assets because NOI excludes certain items that are not associated with management of the properties. Our use of the term NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies as they may have different methodologies for computing this amount.

Cash NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure which excludes from NOI straight-line rent adjustments, amortization of acquired above and below market leases, and other non-cash and normalizing items, including our share of all required adjustments from unconsolidated joint ventures. Other non-cash and normalizing items include items such as the amortization of lease inducements, loan reserve adjustments, payments received from seller master leases and rent abatements, and changes in fair value of contingent consideration. We believe that Cash NOI provides an accurate measure of the operating performance of our operating assets because it excludes certain items that are not associated with management of the properties. Additionally, we believe that Cash NOI is a widely accepted measure of comparative operating performance in the real estate community. Our use of the term Cash NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies as such other companies may have different methodologies for computing this amount.

MOB Same-Store Cash NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure which excludes from Cash NOI assets not held for the entire preceding five quarters, non-MOB assets, and other normalizing items not specifically related to the same-store property portfolio. Management considers MOB Same-Store Cash NOI a supplemental measure because it allows investors, analysts, and Company management to measure unlevered property-level operating results. Our use of the term MOB Same-Store Cash NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies, as such other companies may have different methodologies for computing this amount.

We calculate EBITDAre in accordance with standards established by Nareit and define EBITDAre as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP plus depreciation and amortization, interest expense, loss (gain) on dispositions, and impairment loss, including our share of all required adjustments from unconsolidated joint ventures. We define Adjusted EBITDAre, which excludes from EBITDAre non-cash share compensation expense, non-cash changes in fair value, pursuit costs, non-cash intangible amortization, the pro forma impact of investment activity, and other normalizing items. We consider EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre important measures because they provide additional information to allow management, investors, and our current and potential creditors to evaluate and compare our core operating results and our ability to service debt.
