ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Mar 31, 2015) -  Global Healthcare REIT, Inc. (OTCQB: GBCS), a leading real estate investment trust that owns healthcare properties and leases them to senior care facility operators, reported results for the year ended December 31, 2014.

2014 Highlights

  • Completed acquisitions of seven properties for $27.9 million in total
  • Rental revenue increased 318% to $1.9 million versus the period from March 13, 2013 (date of inception) through December 31, 2013
  • Net income to common shareholders improved to $1.3 million or $0.06 per diluted share from a net loss to common shareholders of $0.7 million or $0.09 per basic and diluted share in the period from March 13, 2013 (date of inception) through December 31, 2013
  • Total assets up 270% to $46.5 million versus the period from March 13, 2013 (date of inception) through December 31, 2013
  • Paid quarterly cash dividend of $0.01 in Q1 and Q4 of 2014

2014 Financial Summary
Rental revenue increased 318% to $1.9 million in 2014, as compared to $443,000 in the period from March 13, 2013 (date of inception) through December 31, 2013. The increase in revenue was due to the additional days of operation and the contribution of facilities acquired in 2014, with the number of facilities totaling 11 as of December 31, 2014 versus two at December 31, 2013. Rental revenue in 2014 was derived from eight out of 11 facilities in the company's portfolio, and does not reflect the full run rate the company expects from its healthcare property portfolio. As of March 1, 2015, 10 of the facilities were contributing rental revenue, with the Southern Hills independent living facility currently undergoing renovations that are scheduled for completion by the end of the year.

Total expenses were $2.1 million in 2014, compared to $0.8 million in the period from March 13, 2013 (date of inception) through December 31, 2013. The increase in total expenses was due the greater number of days of operation, as well as increased general and administrative expenses, and increased depreciation expense due to the addition of properties to the company's portfolio in 2014. As the company continues its acquisition campaign for healthcare real estate, it anticipates revenue and cash flow will increase while holding general and administrative costs relatively flat and fixed costs at approximately $205,000 per quarter.

Net income to common shareholders improved to $1.3 million or $0.06 per diluted share in 2014 as compared to a net loss of $0.7 million or $0.09 per basic and diluted share in the period from March 13, 2014 (date of inception) through December 31, 2013. The improvement in net income was partly due to a gain of $3.0 million that resulted from the excess of fair value in the acquisition of Southern Hills Retirement Center.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $0.5 million as of December 31, 2014, as compared to $1.2 million as of December 31, 2013.

2014 Acquisition Activity
During 2014, Global Healthcare REIT completed acquisitions of seven properties for $27.9 million in total. Six were skilled nursing facilities and one property was a senior living campus comprised of a skilled nursing facility, assisted living facility and independent living facility.

The 2014 acquisitions bring the company's total properties owned to nine (see "Summary of Property Portfolio," below, for more details.) There are no capital improvement and recurring capital expenditure commitments at the properties, except for renovations at the company's Southern Hills Retirement Center, which are expected to be completed by the end of 2015.

Management Commentary
"In 2014, we experienced extraordinary growth as our rental revenue increased four-fold over last year, driven by nine senior care facility acquisitions," said Global Healthcare REIT's president and CEO, Christopher Brogdon. "The successful 2014 acquisitions expanded our footprint from only Georgia to Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma. We plan to continue this expansion by acquiring four skilled nursing facilities in Texas, as well as other acquisitions in key states. Our current plan is to double our portfolio to more 20 facilities by the end of this year."

Quarterly Dividend
As previously announced, the company declared a regular quarterly cash dividend in the amount of $0.01 per common share for the first quarter of 2015. The dividend will be paid April 30, 2015 to shareholders of record on the close of business on April 10, 2015.

"We recently announced our second consecutive quarterly dividend and expect our dividend to grow over time in correlation to the growth in our healthcare facilities portfolio," commented Brogdon. "Given our acquisition pipeline, we expect to issue a quarterly cash dividend in the amount of $0.01 per common share for the second quarter of 2015, with plans to increase the dividend to $0.02 per share in the third quarter of 2015."

Management Appointment
During the current quarter, the company promoted Ryan Scates from general counsel and secretary to the new position of executive vice president. Scates previously served in a management capacity at Winter Haven Homes to help facilitate healthcare facility acquisitions. His prior experience also includes working in the Office of the Executive Counsel to the Governor of Georgia and as a member of the University of Georgia's Athletic Association Board of Directors. Scates holds undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Georgia.
