LTC Reports Fourth Quarter 2013 Results Business Wire WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. -- February 20, 2014 LTC Properties, Inc. (NYSE: LTC) (“LTC” or the “Company”) announces today operating results for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. The Company reported an increase of 13.8% in Funds from Operations (“FFO”) to $20.0million in the quarter ended December 31, 2013, from $17.5million in the comparable 2012 period. FFO per diluted common share was $0.57 for the quarters ended December 31, 2013 and 2012. Normalized FFO increased by 24.3% to $21.9million in the fourth quarter of 2013 from $17.7million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Normalized FFO per diluted common share was $0.62 and $0.57 for the quarters ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The increase in FFO and normalized FFO was due to higher revenues from mortgage loan originations, acquisitions and completed property developments. Net income available to common stockholders for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was $13.7million or $0.40 per diluted share as compared to $11.9million or $0.39 per diluted share for the same period in 2012. The increase in net income available to common stockholders for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was primarily due to mortgage loan originations, acquisitions and completed property developments offset by non-cash provisions for loan loss reserves related to a mortgage loan origination and the write-off of straight-line rent in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

Therefore, the sum of per share amounts from continuing operations and discontinued operations may not agree with the per share amounts from net income allocable to common stockholders. Supplemental Reporting Measures FFO, adjusted FFO (“AFFO”), and Funds Available for Distribution (“FAD”) are supplemental measures of a real estate investment trust’s (“REIT”) financial performance that are not defined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Investors, analysts and the Company use FFO, AFFO and FAD as supplemental measures of operating performance. The Company believes FFO, AFFO and FAD are helpful in evaluating the operating performance of a REIT. Real estate values historically rise and fall with market conditions, but cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with U.S. GAAP assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. We believe that by excluding the effect of historical cost depreciation, which may be of limited relevance in evaluating current performance, FFO, AFFO and FAD facilitate like comparisons of operating performance between periods. Additionally the Company believes that normalized FFO, normalized AFFO and normalized FAD provide useful information because they allow investors, analysts and our management to compare the Company’s operating performance on a consistent basis without having to account for differences caused by unanticipated items. FFO, as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), means net income available to common stockholders (computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP) excluding gains or losses on the sale of real estate and impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate plus real estate depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Normalized FFO represents FFO adjusted for certain items detailed in the reconciliations. The Company’s computation of FFO may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or have a different interpretation of the current NAREIT definition from that of the Company; therefore, caution should be exercised when comparing our Company’s FFO to that of other REITs. We define AFFO as FFO excluding the effects of straight-line rent and amortization of lease inducement. U.S. GAAP requires rental revenues related to non-contingent leases that contain specified rental increases over the life of the lease to be recognized evenly over the life of the lease. This method results in rental income in the early years of a lease that is higher than actual cash received, creating a straight-line rent receivable asset included in our consolidated balance sheet. At some point during the lease, depending on its terms, cash rent payments exceed the straight-line rent which results in the straight-line rent receivable asset decreasing to zero over the remainder of the lease term. By excluding the non-cash portion of straight-line rental revenue and amortization of lease inducement, investors, analysts and our management can compare AFFO between periods. Normalized AFFO represents AFFO adjusted for certain items detailed in the reconciliations. We define FAD as AFFO excluding the effects of non-cash compensation charges. FAD is useful in analyzing the portion of cash flow that is available for distribution to stockholders. Investors, analysts and the Company utilize FAD as an indicator of common dividend potential. The FAD payout ratio, which represents annual distributions to common shareholders expressed as a percentage of FAD, facilitates the comparison of dividend coverage between REITs. Normalized FAD represents FAD adjusted for certain items detailed in the reconciliations. While the Company uses FFO, normalized FFO, normalized AFFO and normalized FAD as supplemental performance measures of our cash flow generated by operations and cash available for distribution to stockholders, such measures are not representative of cash generated from operating activities in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs and should not be considered an alternative to net income available to common stockholders.
