ATLANTA, April 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Regional Health Properties, Inc. (NYSE American: RHE) (NYSE American: RHEpA), a self-managed healthcare real estate investment company that invests primarily in real estate purposed for senior living and long-term care, reported results for the year ended December 31, 2019.

Business Update

  • Successfully settled a total of three professional liability claims during the fourth quarter 2019 and the first quarter of 2020.
  • Commenced a capital improvement plan for the Company's Ohio facilities. Management is encouraged by the early results and anticipates further increases in census, driving higher cash rents.
  • Overall portfolio performance continues to stabilize and rent coverage begins to show improvement.
  • When reviewing occupancy for the first quarter of 2020, census levels continue to remain stable in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

"We made further progress in stabilizing and improving the Company's property portfolio, as well as continued to settle additional professional liability claims," stated Brent Morrison, Regional's Chief Executive Officer. "The Company also continues to work closely with the Department of Housing and Urban Development for release of funds held in reserve to be used for renovations at the Company's facilities."

Morrison continued, "Also, as described in our release dated March 24, 2020, and as we are all aware, the COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly evolving and we cannot predict the impact that COVID-19 will have on the Company at this time, but we applaud the efforts of our operators to keep their residents and employees safe. The extent to which COVID-19 could impact our business and results of operations will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the duration of the outbreak, new information that may emerge concerning the severity of COVID-19, and the actions taken to contain COVID-19 or treat its impact, among others."

Management periodically monitors a number of facility performance metrics, including rent coverages both before and after management fees. In the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company's portfolio rent coverage before management fees was 1.5x and rent coverage after management fees was 1.2x. Occupancy and skilled mix for the Company's portfolio were 80.0% and 26.4% for the fourth quarter of 2019, respectively. These data exclude the impact of three managed facilities located in Ohio, five additional facilities located in Ohio and transitioned to a new operator on December 1, 2018, one facility located in North Carolina and transitioned to a new operator on March 1, 2019, one facility located in Oklahoma and sold on August 1, 2019, one facility located in Georgia and sold on August 1, 2019, one facility located in Alabama and sold on August 1, 2019, one facility located in Oklahoma and sold on August 28, 2019, and two facilities located in Georgia and transitioned to Omega in the first quarter of 2019.

Summary of Financial Results for the Three and 12 Months Ended December 31, 2019
Total rental revenues in the fourth quarter of 2019 decreased 16.6% to $4.6 million, from $5.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. Total rental revenues for the 12 months ended December 31, 2019 decreased by 8.7% to $20.1 million, from $22.0 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018. The decrease is a result of four facilities sold during the third quarter of 2019 as well as two facilities transitioned to Omega in the first quarter of 2019. The Company generally recognizes all rental revenues on a straight-line rent accrual basis.

General and administrative costs decreased 31.9%, to $641,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared with $941,000 for the same period in 2018. General and administrative costs for the 12 months ended December 31, 2019 decreased by 13.5%, to $3.2 million, compared with $3.7 million for the same period in 2018. For the 12 months ended December 31, 2019, and 2018, general and administrative costs include $92,000 and $176,000, respectively, of stock-based compensation expense.

Interest expense decreased by $604,000, or 45.3%, to $730,000 for the fourth quarter of 2019 compared with $1.3 million for the same period in 2018. Interest expense for the 12 months ended December 31, 2019, decreased by $664,000, or 11.2%, to $5.3 million compared to $5.9 million for the same period in 2018. The decrease is mainly due to the payoff of the Pinecone and Congressional Bank loans during the current year.

Income from discontinued operations, net of tax, for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $215,000 compared to income from discontinued operations, net of tax, of $316,000 for the prior year period. For the 12 months ended December 31, 2019, income from discontinued operations, net of tax, was $626,000 compared to income from discontinued operations of $74,000 for the prior year period.

Net loss attributable to Regional Health Properties, Inc.'s common stockholders in the fourth quarter of 2019 was $1.5 million compared with a net loss of $3.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2018. For the 12 months ended December 31, 2019, the net loss attributable to Regional Health Properties, Inc.'s common stockholders was $3.5 million, inclusive of a $6.5 million pre-tax gain on the sale of assets in the third quarter, or $2.07 per basic and diluted share, compared with a net loss of $19.9 million, or $11.86 per basic and diluted share, in the prior year period.

Cash at December 31, 2019, totaled $4.4 million compared with $2.4 million at December 31, 2018. Restricted cash at December 31, 2019, totaled $3.7 million compared to $4.1 million at December 31, 2018. Total debt outstanding at December 31, 2019 amounted to $55.4 million compared with $81.3 million at December 31, 2018 (net of $1.4 million and $1.5 million of deferred financing costs at December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively).
