Certain non-GAAP financial measures are used in the discussions in this release in assessing the performance of the business. See attached tables for definitions of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR, reconciliations of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, calculations of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenues, and non-GAAP financial measure reconciliation information.

As of June 30, 2011, ALC operated 211 senior living residences comprising 9,325 units.

The following discussions include the impact of the One-Time Items unless otherwise specified.

Quarters ended June 30, 2011, June 30, 2010, March 31, 2011

Revenues of $58.6 million in the second quarter ended June 30, 2011 increased $0.3 million or 0.6% from $58.3 million in the second quarter of 2010 and increased $0.2 million or 0.4% from the first quarter of 2011.

Adjusted EBITDAR for the second quarter of 2011 was $21.7 million or 37.0% of revenues and

  • increased $2.1 million or 10.7% from $19.6 million and 33.6% of revenues in the second quarter of 2010; and
  • increased $2.0 million or 10.0% from $19.7 million and 33.8% of revenues in the first quarter of 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2011 was $17.3 million or 29.5% of revenues and

  • increased $2.8 million or 19.2% from $14.5 million and 24.9% of revenues in the second quarter of 2010; and
  • increased $1.9 million or 12.5% from $15.4 million and 26.3% of revenues in the first quarter of 2011.

Second quarter 2011 compared to second quarter 2010

Revenues in the second quarter of 2011 increased from the second quarter of 2010 primarily due to higher average daily revenue as a result of rate increases ($0.6 million) and an increase in private pay occupancy ($0.3 million), partially offset by the planned reduction in the number of units occupied by Medicaid residents ($0.6 million). Average private pay rates increased in the second quarter of 2011 by 1.0% over average private pay rates for the second quarter of 2010. Average overall rates, including the impact of improved payer mix, increased in the second quarter of 2011 by 1.5% over comparable rates for the second quarter of 2010.

Both Adjusted EBITDAR and Adjusted EBITDA increased in the second quarter of 2011 primarily due to a decrease in residence operations expenses ($1.1 million) (this excludes the gain on disposal of fixed assets), a decrease in general and administrative expenses ($0.7 million) (this excludes non-cash equity based compensation), and an increase in revenues discussed above ($0.3 million), and, for Adjusted EBITDA only, a decrease in residence lease expense ($0.7 million). Residence operations expenses decreased primarily from lower labor expenses. Staffing needs in the second quarter of 2011 as compared to the second quarter of 2010 decreased primarily because of a decline in the number of units occupied by Medicaid residents who tend to have higher care needs than private pay residents. In addition, general economic conditions enabled us to hire new employees at lower wage rates. General and administrative expenses decreased as a result of expenses incurred in the second quarter of 2010 associated with an all-company conference and expenses associated with the 2010 realignment of our divisions.

Second quarter 2011 compared to the first quarter 2011

Revenues in the second quarter of 2011 increased from the first quarter of 2011 primarily due to one additional day in the second quarter ($0.6 million), an increase in the number of units occupied by private pay residents ($0.1 million), partially offset by lower average daily revenue as a result of promotional discounts ($0.4 million), and the planned reduction in the number of units occupied by Medicaid residents ($0.1 million).

Increased Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR in the second quarter of 2011 as compared to the first quarter of 2011 resulted primarily from a decrease in residence operations expenses ($1.5 million) (this excludes the gain on disposal of fixed assets), an increase in revenues discussed above ($0.2 million), and a decrease in general and administrative expenses ($0.3 million) (this excludes non-cash equity-based compensation). Residence operations expenses decreased primarily from decreases in utility expenses resulting from normal seasonal fluctuations. General and administrative expenses increased as a result of expenses associated with an all-company conference held in the second quarter of 2011.

Six months ended June 30, 2011 and June 30, 2010

Revenues of $117.0 million in the six months ended June 30, 2011 increased $0.9 million or 0.8% from $116.2 million in the six months ended June 30, 2010.

Adjusted EBITDAR for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was $41.4 million, or 35.4% of revenues and

  • increased $3.1 million or 8.2% from $38.3 million and 33.0% of revenues in the six months ended June 30, 2010.

Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was $32.6 million, or 27.9% of revenues and

  • increased $4.5 million or 16.2% from $28.1 million and 24.2% of revenues in the six months ended June 30, 2010.

Six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to six months ended June 30, 2010

Revenues in the six months ended June 30, 2011 increased from the six months ended June 30, 2010 primarily due to higher average daily revenue from rate increases ($1.7 million) and an increase in private pay occupancy ($0.6 million), partially offset by the planned reduction in the number of units occupied by Medicaid residents ($1.4 million). Average private pay rates increased in the six months ended June 30, 2011 by 1.5% over average private pay rates for the six months ended June 30, 2010. Average overall rates, including the impact of improved payer mix, increased in the six months ended June 30, 2011 by 2.0% over the comparable rates for the six months ended June 30, 2010.

Both Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR increased in the six months ended June 30, 2011 primarily from a decrease in residence operations expenses ($1.5 million) (this excludes the gain on disposal of fixed assets), and the increase in revenues discussed above ($0.9 million), partially offset by an increase in general and administrative expenses ($0.7 million) (this excludes non-cash equity based compensation) and, for Adjusted EBITDA only, a decrease in residence lease expense ($1.4 million). Residence operations expenses decreased primarily from lower labor and kitchen expenses. Staffing needs in the six months ended June 30, 2011 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2010 decreased primarily because of a decline in the number of units occupied by Medicaid residents who tend to have higher care needs than private pay residents. In addition, general economic conditions enabled us to hire new employees at lower wage rates. Kitchen expenses were lower due to new group purchasing plans and lower overall occupancy. General and administrative expenses decreased from non-recurring expenses associated with the realignment of our divisions in the 2010 six month period.

Dividend

On August 4, 2011 the Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.10 per share payable to shareholders of record on the close of business on August 19, 2011 and will be paid on September 15, 2011.

Liquidity

At June 30, 2011 ALC maintained a strong liquidity position with cash of approximately $2.8 million and undrawn lines of $95.5 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income from continuing operations before income taxes, interest expense net of interest income, depreciation and amortization, equity based compensation expense, transaction costs and non-cash, non-recurring gains and losses, including disposal of assets and impairment of long-lived assets (including goodwill) and loss on refinancing and retirement of debt. Adjusted EBITDAR is defined as Adjusted EBITDA before rent expenses incurred for leased assisted living properties. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR are not measures of performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP. We use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR as key performance indicators and Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR expressed as a percentage of total revenues as a measurement of margin.

We understand that EBITDA and EBITDAR, or derivatives thereof, are customarily used by lenders, financial and credit analysts, and many investors as a performance measure in evaluating a company's ability to service debt and meet other payment obligations or as a common valuation measurement in the long-term care industry. Moreover, ALC's revolving credit facility contains covenants in which a form of EBITDA is used as a measure of compliance, and we anticipate EBITDA will be used in covenants in any new financing arrangements that we may establish. We believe Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our core results because these measures exclude the effects of non-operating factors related to our capital assets, such as the historical cost of the assets.

We report specific line items separately, and exclude them from Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR because such items are transitional in nature and would otherwise distort historical trends. In addition, we use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR to assess our operating performance and in making financing decisions. In particular, we use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR in analyzing potential acquisitions and internal expansion possibilities. Adjusted EBITDAR performance is also used in determining compensation levels for our senior executives. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows from operating activities, and other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. We present Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR on a consistent basis from period to period, thereby allowing for comparability of operating performance.
