“New Senior’s portfolio once again delivered strong results during the third quarter, with superior same store managed NOI growth of 6.0% and a same store occupancy increase of 210 basis points, exceeding our peers and the industry averages,” New Senior Chief Executive Officer Susan Givens said. “These results speak to the significant embedded growth potential we have in our portfolio as a result of our unique acquisition strategy. We closed on our largest acquisition year to date in August, which included 28 private pay independent living properties for $640 million, and the portfolio has realized strong increases in occupancy of over 300bps since May 2015 to finish September at 91.2% occupancy. We look forward to continuing to deliver strong organic growth from our existing portfolio, and we are committed to a disciplined approach to capital allocation decisions.”
Year to date, the Company has closed $1.3 billion of acquisitions, which includes 49 IL properties, 4 assisted living / memory care (“AL/MC”) properties and 1 rental continuing care retirement community (“CCRC”).
During the third quarter, the Company closed a $640 million acquisition of 28 private pay, IL properties from affiliates of Holiday Retirement (“Holiday”). The portfolio is 100% private pay, contains 3,296 IL units located across 21 states and is expected to generate an initial cash NOI yield of approximately 6.4%. Occupancy for the portfolio has increased 330bps from 87.9% in May 2015 to 91.2% in September 2015. The acquisition was integrated into the Company’s managed portfolio.
In October, the Company closed a $40 million acquisition of two AL/MC properties that were added to the Company’s managed portfolio.
Total NOI increased 39% to $53.2 million compared to $38.4 million for 3Q 2014.
For the managed portfolio, total occupancy increased 290 basis points to 86.9% compared to 84.0% for 3Q 2014, and same store occupancy increased 210 basis points to 85.6% compared to 83.5% for 3Q 2014. Same store NOI increased 6.0% to $11.4 million compared to $10.8 million for 3Q 2014. Same store information excludes one property that, although owned during both comparison periods, was not fully operational and had units that were not available for rent during the third quarter of 2015. Including this property, same store occupancy growth was 150 basis points and same store NOI growth was 3.5%.
For the triple net portfolio, same store occupancy increased 180 basis points to 90.7% compared to 88.9% for 3Q 2014. Triple net occupancy is presented one quarter in arrears from the date reported on a trailing twelve month basis.
In August, the Company completed a $465 million first mortgage loan secured by the 28 independent living properties acquired from Holiday with Freddie Mac. The loan bears interest at a fixed rate of 4.25% and has a maturity of ten years. Proceeds from the loan were used to finance the acquisition from Holiday and to pay down $15 million of existing floating rate debt.
