The duration and extent of the COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on the Company’s operational and financial performance, and the operational and financial performance of the Company’s tenants, will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted at this time, including the rate of public acceptance and usage of vaccines and the effectiveness of vaccines in limiting the spread of COVID-19 and its variants, resurgences of COVID-19 and, in particular, new and more contagious and/or vaccine resistant variants, actions taken to contain the spread of COVID-19 and how quickly and to what extent normal economic and operating conditions can resume. The adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s business, results of operations and financial condition could be material.
 
2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of Presentation—The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company were prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, the condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all of the disclosures required by GAAP for a complete set of annual audited financial statements. The condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021. In the opinion of management, all adjustments which are of a normal and recurring nature and considered necessary for a fair presentation of the results of the interim periods presented have been included.

The applicable Ensign master lease has a remaining term of approximately 11 years, with two five-year renewal options and CPI-based rent escalators. Annual cash rent under the applicable Ensign master lease, as amended, increased by approximately $0.3 million and annual cash rent under the Pennant master lease, as amended, decreased by the same amount.
Amended Eduro Master Lease. On February 1, 2022, the Company acquired one SNF. In conjunction with the acquisition, the Company amended its existing triple-net master lease with affiliates of Eduro Healthcare, LLC (“Eduro”) to include the one SNF and extended the initial lease term. The Eduro master lease, as amended, has a remaining term of approximately 12 years, with two five-year renewal options and CPI-based rent escalators. Annual cash rent under the Eduro master lease, as amended, increased by approximately $0.8 million.
Amended WLC Master Lease. On March 1, 2022, the Company acquired one multi-service campus. In conjunction with the acquisition, the Company amended its existing triple-net master lease with affiliates of WLC Management Firm, LLC (“WLC”) to include the one multi-service campus.

4. IMPAIRMENT OF REAL ESTATE INVESTMENTS, ASSETS HELD FOR SALE, NET AND ASSET SALES
In connection with the Company’s ongoing review and monitoring of its investment portfolio and the performance of its tenants, the Company determined to pursue the sale of 27 properties and repurposing three properties representing an aggregate of approximately 10% of contractual cash rent as of March 31, 2022. As of March 31, 2022, the Company determined that these 27 properties met the criteria to be classified as assets held for sale and, in connection with this determination, the Company recognized an aggregate impairment charge of $59.7 million related to 20 of the 27 held for sale properties, which is reported in impairment of real estate investments in the condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The impairment charge was recognized to write down the properties’ aggregate carrying value to their aggregate fair value, less estimated costs to sell. As of March 31, 2022, the net book value of these 27 properties was $141.7 million, which is comprised of the real estate assets.
The fair value of the assets held for sale was based on estimated sales prices, which are considered to be Level 3 measurements within the fair value hierarchy. Estimated sales prices were determined using a market approach (comparable sales model), which relies on certain assumptions by management, including: (i) comparable market transactions, (ii) estimated prices per unit, and (iii) negotiations with prospective buyers. There are inherent uncertainties in making these assumptions. For the Company’s impairment calculations, the Company’s fair value estimates primarily relied on a market approach and utilized prices per unit ranging from $40,000 to $175,000, with a weighted average price per unit of $91,000.
During the first quarter of 2022, the Company determined that one ALF that was classified as held for sale at December 31, 2021 no longer met the held for sale criteria. The Company reclassified this ALF’s carrying value of $4.8 million out of assets held for sale and recorded catch-up depreciation of approximately $0.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022.
On February 22, 2022, the Company closed on the sale of one SNF, operated by affiliates of Cascadia Healthcare, LLC (“Cascadia”), consisting of 83 beds located in Washington with a carrying value of $0.8 million, for net sales proceeds of $1.0 million. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company recorded a gain of $0.2 million in connection with the sale. There was no rent reduction under the Cascadia master lease in connection with the sale.

6. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
The Company determines fair value based on quoted prices when available or through the use of alternative approaches, such as discounting the expected cash flows using market interest rates commensurate with the credit quality and duration of the investment. GAAP guidance defines three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities that the reporting entity has the ability to access at the measurement date.

Level 2 – Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability or can be corroborated with observable market data for substantially the entire contractual term of the asset or liability.

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs reflect the entity’s own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in the pricing of the asset or liability and are consequently not based on market activity, but rather through particular valuation techniques.

The determination of where an asset or liability falls in the hierarchy requires significant judgment and considers factors specific to the asset or liability. In instances where the determination of the fair value measurement is based on inputs from different levels of the fair value hierarchy, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the entire fair value measurement falls is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. The Company evaluates its hierarchy disclosures each quarter and, depending on various factors, it is possible that an asset or
10

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS —
(Unaudited)


liability may be classified differently from quarter to quarter. Changes in the type of inputs may result in a reclassification for certain assets. The Company does not expect that changes in classifications between levels will be frequent.
Items Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis
The following table presents information about the Company’s assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, aggregated by the level in the fair value hierarchy within which those instruments fall (dollars in thousands):

Balance as of December 31, 2021
Assets:
Mezzanine loan receivable$ $ $15,155 $15,155 

Mezzanine loan receivable: The fair value of the mezzanine loan receivable was estimated using an internal valuation model that considered the expected future cash flows of the investment, the underlying collateral value, market interest rates and other credit enhancements. As such, the Company classifies the instrument as Level 3 due to the significant unobservable inputs used in determining market interest rates for investments with similar terms. Future changes in market interest rates could materially impact the estimated discounted cash flows. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company did not have any loans measured at fair value that were 90 days or more past due.
For the three months ended March 31, 2022, there were no classification changes in assets and liabilities with Level 3 inputs in the fair value hierarchy.

Items Disclosed at Fair Value

Considerable judgment is necessary to estimate the fair value disclosure of financial instruments. The estimates of fair value presented herein are not necessarily indicative of the amounts that could be realized upon disposition of the financial instruments. A summary of the face value, carrying amount and fair value of the Notes (as defined in Note 7, Debt, below) as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 using Level 2 inputs is as follows (dollars in thousands):

Senior Unsecured Notes Payable
2028 Senior Notes. On June 17, 2021, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, CTR Partnership, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”), and its wholly owned subsidiary, CareTrust Capital Corp. (together with the Operating Partnership, the “Issuers”) completed a private offering of $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of 3.875% Senior Notes due 2028 (the “Notes”) to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A and to non-U.S. persons outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Notes were issued at par, resulting in gross proceeds of $400.0 million and net proceeds of approximately $393.8 million after deducting underwriting fees and other offering expenses. The Notes mature on June 30, 2028. The Notes accrue interest at a rate of 3.875% per annum payable semiannually in arrears on June 30 and December 30 of each year, commencing on December 30, 2021.
The Issuers may redeem some or all of the Notes at any time prior to March 30, 2028 at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes, if any, to, but not including, the redemption date, plus a “make-whole” premium. At any time on or after March 30, 2028, the Issuers may redeem some or all of the Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes redeemed plus accrued interest on the Notes, if any, to, but not including, the redemption date. In addition, at any time on or prior to June 30, 2024, up to 40% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes may be redeemed with the net proceeds of certain equity offerings at a redemption price of 103.875% of the aggregate principal amount of Notes to be redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes, if any, to, but not including, the redemption date. If certain changes of control of the Company occur, the Issuers will be required to make an offer to holders of the Notes to repurchase their Notes at a price of 101% of their principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but not including, the repurchase date.
The obligations under the Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed, jointly and severally, on an unsecured basis, by the Company and all of CareTrust’s existing and future subsidiaries (other than the Issuers) that guarantee obligations under the Amended Credit Facility (as defined below); provided, however, that such guarantees are subject to automatic release under certain customary circumstances.
The indenture governing the Notes contains customary covenants such as limiting the ability of the Company and its restricted subsidiaries to: incur or guarantee additional indebtedness; incur or guarantee secured indebtedness; pay dividends or distributions on, or redeem or repurchase, capital stock; make certain investments or other restricted payments; sell assets; enter into transactions with affiliates; merge or consolidate or sell all or substantially all of their assets; and create restrictions on the ability of the Issuers and their restricted subsidiaries to pay dividends or other amounts to the Issuers. The indenture governing the Notes also requires the Company and its restricted subsidiaries to maintain a specified ratio of unencumbered assets to unsecured indebtedness. These covenants are subject to a number of important and significant limitations, qualifications and exceptions. The indenture governing the Notes also contains customary events of default.
As of March 31, 2022, the Company was in compliance with all applicable financial covenants under the indenture governing the Notes.

Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility and Term Loan

agreement with KeyBank National Association, as administrative agent, an issuing bank and swingline lender, and the lenders party thereto (the “Amended Credit Agreement”). The Amended Credit Agreement, which amended and restated the Company’s prior credit agreement, provides for: (i) an unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Facility”) with revolving commitments in an aggregate principal amount of $600.0 million, including a letter of credit subfacility for 10% of the then available revolving commitments and a swingline loan subfacility for 10% of the then available revolving commitments and (ii) an unsecured term loan credit facility (the “Term Loan” and, together with the Revolving Facility, the “Amended Credit Facility”) in an aggregate principal amount of $200.0 million. Borrowing availability under the Revolving Facility is subject to no default or event of default under the Amended Credit Agreement having occurred at the time of borrowing. Future borrowings under the Amended Credit Facility will be used for working capital purposes, for capital expenditures, to fund acquisitions and for general corporate purposes.
The interest rates applicable to loans under the Revolving Facility are, at the Operating Partnership’s option, equal to either a base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.10% to 0.55% per annum or LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.10% to 1.55% per annum based on the debt to asset value ratio of the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries (subject to decrease at the Operating Partnership’s election if the Company obtains certain specified investment grade ratings on its senior long-term unsecured debt). The interest rates applicable to loans under the Term Loan are, at the Operating Partnership’s option, equal to either a base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.50% to 1.20% per annum or LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.50% to 2.20% per annum based on the debt to asset value ratio of the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries (subject to decrease at the Operating Partnership’s election if the Company obtains certain specified investment grade ratings on its senior long-term unsecured debt). In addition, the Operating Partnership will pay a facility fee on the revolving commitments under the Revolving Facility ranging from 0.15% to 0.35% per annum, based on the debt to asset value ratio of the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries (unless the Company obtains certain specified investment grade ratings on its senior long-term unsecured debt and the Operating Partnership elects to decrease the applicable margin as described above, in which case the Operating Partnership will pay a facility fee on the revolving commitments ranging from 0.125% to 0.30% per annum based on the credit ratings of the Company’s senior long-term unsecured debt). As of March 31, 2022, the Operating Partnership had $200.0 million of borrowings outstanding under the Term Loan and $105.0 million outstanding under the Revolving Facility.
The Revolving Facility has a maturity date of February 8, 2023, and includes, at the sole discretion of the Operating Partnership, two, six-month extension options. The Term Loan has a maturity date of February 8, 2026.
The Amended Credit Facility is guaranteed, jointly and severally, by the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries that are party to the Amended Credit Agreement (other than the Operating Partnership). The Amended Credit Agreement contains customary covenants that, among other things, restrict, subject to certain exceptions, the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries to grant liens on their assets, incur indebtedness, sell assets, make investments, engage in acquisitions, mergers or consolidations, amend organizational documents and pay certain dividends and other restricted payments. The Amended Credit Agreement requires the Company to comply with financial maintenance covenants to be tested quarterly, consisting of a maximum debt to asset value ratio, a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio, a minimum tangible net worth, a maximum cash distributions to operating income ratio, a maximum secured debt to asset value ratio, a maximum secured recourse debt to asset value ratio, a maximum unsecured debt to unencumbered properties asset value ratio, a minimum unsecured interest coverage ratio and a minimum rent coverage ratio. The Amended Credit Agreement also contains certain customary events of default, including the failure to make timely payments under the Amended Credit Facility or other material indebtedness, the failure to satisfy certain covenants (including the financial maintenance covenants), the occurrence of change of control and specified events of bankruptcy and insolvency.
As of March 31, 2022, the Company was in compliance with all applicable financial covenants under the Amended Credit Agreement.

11. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
The Company and its subsidiaries are and may become from time to time a party to various claims and lawsuits arising in the ordinary course of business, which are not individually or in the aggregate anticipated to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations, financial condition or cash flows. Claims and lawsuits may include matters involving general or professional liability asserted against the Company’s tenants, which are the responsibility of the Company’s tenants and for which the Company is entitled to be indemnified by its tenants under the insurance and indemnification provisions in the applicable leases.
Capital expenditures for each property leased under the Company’s triple-net leases are generally the responsibility of the tenant, except that, for the facilities leased to subsidiaries of Ensign and Pennant, the tenant will have an option to require the Company to finance certain capital expenditures up to an aggregate of 20% of the Company’s initial investment in such property, subject to a corresponding rent increase at the time of funding. For the Company’s other triple-net master leases, the tenants also have the option to request capital expenditure funding that would generally be subject to a corresponding rent increase at the time of funding, which are subject to tenant compliance with the conditions to the Company’s approval and funding of their requests. As of March 31, 2022, the Company had committed to fund expansions, construction and capital improvements at certain triple-net leased facilities totaling $5.5 million, of which $4.4 million is subject to rent increase at the time of funding.

Overview
CareTrust REIT is a self-administered, publicly-traded REIT engaged in the ownership, acquisition, financing, development and leasing of skilled nursing, seniors housing and other healthcare-related properties. As of March 31, 2022, we owned and leased to independent operators, 228 skilled nursing facilities (“SNFs”), multi-service campuses, assisted living facilities (“ALFs”) and independent living facilities (“ILFs”) consisting of 23,834 operational beds and units located in 29 states with the highest concentration of properties by rental revenues located in California, Texas, Louisiana, Idaho and Arizona. As of March 31, 2022, we also had other real estate investments consisting of one mezzanine loan receivable with a carrying value of $15.2 million.
We generate revenues primarily by leasing healthcare-related properties to healthcare operators in triple-net lease arrangements, under which the tenant is solely responsible for the costs related to the property (including property taxes, insurance, maintenance and repair costs and capital expenditures, subject to certain exceptions in the case of properties leased to Ensign and Pennant). From time to time, we also extend secured mortgage loans to healthcare operators, secured by healthcare-related properties, and secured mezzanine loans to healthcare operators, secured by membership interests in healthcare-related properties. We conduct and manage our business as one operating segment for internal reporting and internal decision-making
17

purposes. We expect to grow our portfolio by pursuing opportunities to acquire additional properties that will be leased to a diverse group of local, regional and national healthcare providers, which may include new or existing skilled nursing operators, as well as seniors housing operators, behavioral health facilities and related businesses. We also anticipate diversifying our portfolio over time, including by acquiring properties in different geographic markets, and in different asset classes. In addition, we actively monitor the clinical, regulatory and financial operating results of our tenants, and work to identify opportunities within their operations and markets that could improve their operating results at our facilities. We communicate such observations to our tenants; however, we have no contractual obligation to do so. Moreover, our tenants have sole discretion with respect to the day-to-day operation of the facilities they lease from us, and how and whether to implement any observation we may share with them. We also actively monitor the overall occupancy, skilled mix, and other operating metrics of our tenants on at least a monthly basis including, beginning in the quarter ended June 30, 2020, any stimulus funds received by each tenant. We have replaced tenants in the past, and may elect to replace tenants in the future, if they fail to meet the terms and conditions of their leases with us. The replacement tenants may include tenants with whom we have had no prior landlord-tenant relationship as well as current tenants with whom we are comfortable expanding our relationships. We have also provided select tenants with strategic capital for facility upkeep and modernization, as well as short-term working capital loans when they are awaiting licensure and certification or conducting turnaround work in one or more of our properties, and we may continue to do so in the future. In addition, we periodically reassess the investments we have made and the tenant relationships we have entered into, and have selectively disposed of facilities or investments, or terminated such relationships, and we expect to continue making such reassessments and, where appropriate, taking such actions.

Recent Developments

COVID-19 and Market Conditions Update
Tenants of our properties operating pursuant to triple-net master leases have been adversely impacted, and we expect that they will continue to be adversely impacted, by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our tenants are experiencing increased operating costs as a result of actions they are taking to prevent or mitigate the outbreak or spread of COVID-19 at their facilities, including in connection with their implementation of safety protocols and procedures and other regulatory requirements. Our tenants are also experiencing labor shortages resulting in limited admissions, reduced occupancy and higher agency expense.

At a portfolio wide level, occupancy levels at our seniors housing facilities remained relatively stable from the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic until the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2020, at which time we began to see a decline. This decline in occupancy continued through the first quarter of 2021 then remained flat through the fourth quarter of 2021. Seniors housing occupancy modestly increased during the first quarter of 2022 compared to the fourth quarter of 2021. Occupancy levels at our SNFs, which declined at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and continued to decline through January 2021, had been on a slow incline from February through December 2021. SNF occupancy held stable during the first quarter of 2022 compared to the fourth quarter of 2021. Beginning in early 2020, the federal government temporarily suspended the three-day hospital stay requirement for a patient’s Medicare benefits to refresh. Providers can now “skill in place,” eliminating the risk of transferring the patient to the hospital. Because of the temporary waiver of the three-day hospital stay requirement, overall skilled mix remained slightly elevated in the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the pre-pandemic skilled mix during the three months ended March 31, 2020. An increase in skilled mix can, but may not necessarily, offset some or all of the adverse financial impact to the operator of the SNF from a decline in occupancy. However, the skilled mix in our SNFs during the three months ended March 31, 2022 was lower than the peak level seen in December 2020, and we anticipate that the skilled mix in our SNFs will continue to decline as cases of COVID-19 decline or if the suspension of the three-day hospital stay requirement is lifted.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) recently renewed the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, which is currently set to be in force through July 2022, and that allows HHS to continue providing temporary regulatory waivers, including the waiver of the three-day hospital stay requirement for a patient’s Medicare benefits to refresh. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) included a temporary suspension of a 2% Medicare sequestration cut through the end of March 2022. Beginning April 1, 2022, a 1% sequestration cut went into effect through June 30, 2022 with the full 2% cut resuming thereafter. A temporary increase in Federal Medical Assistance Percentages, which was approved retroactive to January 1, 2020, is effective through June 30, 2022.
The current limited availability or unavailability of grants and other funds being made available to our seniors housing facilities for healthcare related expenses or lost revenues attributable to COVID-19, as well as the tapering of grants and other funds for our SNFs, has also impacted some of our tenants’ ability to continue to meet some of their financial obligations, as they continue to experience lower occupancy levels and higher operating costs.
18

As a result of the foregoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, our tenants’ ability to continue to meet some of their financial obligations to us has been negatively impacted. See “Impairment of Real Estate Assets, Assets Held for Sale and Asset Sales” below. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we collected 94.9% of contractual rents due from our operators including cash deposits used to offset rent shortfalls, and 91.8% excluding cash deposits. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we determined that it was not probable that we would collect substantially all of the contractual obligations from four existing and former operators and, accordingly, we reversed $0.7 million of operating expense reimbursements, $0.2 million of contractual rent and $0.1 million of straight-line rent. In addition, we determined that the collectibility of contractual rents from two operators is not reasonably assured and we moved these two operators to a cash basis method of accounting during the three months ended March 31, 2022. Approximately 93.2% of our contractual rent obligations due for April 2022 have been collected and no cash deposits on hand were applied.
For more information regarding the potential impact of COVID-19 on our business, see “Risk Factors” in Item 1A of Part I of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.
On April 11, 2022, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) issued a proposed rule that would decrease the aggregate net payment by 0.7% for fiscal year 2023. CMS estimates that the aggregate impact of the payment policies in the proposed rule would result in a decrease of approximately $320 million in Medicare Part A payments to SNFs in fiscal year 2023 compared to fiscal year 2022.

Impairment of Real Estate Assets, Assets Held for Sale and Asset Sales
In connection with our ongoing review and monitoring of our investment portfolio and the performance of our tenants, we determined to pursue the sale of 27 properties and repurposing three properties, representing an aggregate of approximately 10% of contractual cash rent as of March 31, 2022. As of March 31, 2022, we determined that these 27 properties met the criteria to be classified as assets held for sale and, in connection with this determination, we recognized an aggregate impairment charge of $59.7 million related to 20 of the 27 held for sale properties, which is reported in impairment of real estate investments in the condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The impairment charge was recognized to write down the properties’ aggregate carrying value to their aggregate fair value, less estimated costs to sell. As of March 31, 2022, the net book value of these 27 properties was $141.7 million.
During the first quarter of 2022, we determined that one ALF that was classified as held for sale at December 31, 2021 no longer met the held for sale criteria. We reclassified this ALF’s carrying value of $4.8 million out of assets held for sale and recorded catch-up depreciation of approximately $0.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022.

During the first quarter of 2022, we closed on the sale of one SNF consisting of 83 beds located in Washington with a carrying value of $0.8 million, for net sales proceeds of $1.0 million. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we recorded a gain of $0.2 million in connection with the sale.

Recent Investments
From January 1, 2022 through May 5, 2022, we acquired 1 SNF and 1 multi-service campus for approximately $21.9 million, which includes capitalized acquisition costs. These acquisitions are expected to generate initial annual cash revenues of approximately $2.1 million and an initial blended yield of approximately 9.4%. See Note 3, Real Estate Investments, Net in the Notes to condensed consolidated financial statements for additional information.

At-The-Market Offering of Common Stock
On March 10, 2020, we entered into a new equity distribution agreement to issue and sell, from time to time, up to $500.0 million in aggregate offering price of our common stock through an “at-the-market” equity offering program (the “ATM Program”).
There was no ATM Program activity for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The following table summarizes the ATM Program activity for the three months ended March 31, 2021 (in thousands, except per share amounts).

Results of Operations
In the first quarter of 2022, we elected to discuss any material changes in our results of operations by comparing our most recently completed quarter to the immediately preceding sequential quarter, as permitted under the recently amended Item 303 of Regulation S-K. Because our business is not seasonal, we believe this comparison provides a more relevant and informative representation of the changes to our results of operations over time. For purposes of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we also continue to discuss any material changes in our results of operations for the most recently completed quarter compared to the corresponding prior year period pursuant to Item 303 of Regulation S-K.

Not meaningful     
Rental income. The $3.1 million, or 6%, decrease in rental income is primarily due to a $2.6 million decrease in rental income and tenant reimbursements related to moving certain tenants to a cash basis method of accounting, a $1.0 million write-off of uncollectible rent, and a $0.1 million decrease in tenant reimbursements, partially offset by an increase of $0.3 million due to contractual increases in rental rates for our existing tenants and $0.2 million from real estate investments made after October 1, 2021.
Interest and other income. The $0.2 million, or 24%, decrease in interest and other income was primarily due to a decrease of $0.1 million related to a forfeited sales deposit recognized in the three months ended December 31, 2021 and a
20

decrease of $0.1 million due to placing one other loan receivable on non-accrual status during the three months ended March 31, 2022.
Depreciation and amortization. The $0.5 million, or 3%, decrease in depreciation and amortization was primarily due to a decrease of $0.5 million due to assets reclassified as held for sale and a decrease of $0.2 million due to assets becoming fully depreciated after October 1, 2021, partially offset by an increase of $0.2 million related to new real estate investments and capital improvements made after October 1, 2021.
Interest expense. The $0.1 million, or 1%, increase in interest expense was primarily due to a higher weighted average debt balance and a higher interest rate under the Revolving Facility during the three months ended March 31, 2022.
Property taxes. The $0.3 million, or 28%, increase in property taxes was primarily due to changes in estimates of property taxes expected to be paid directly by us as a result of certain assets being designated as held for sale during the three months ended March 31, 2022.
Impairment of real estate investments. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we recognized an aggregate impairment charge of $59.7 million related to 20 properties that all met the held for sale criteria during the quarter. See above under “Recent Developments” for additional information. No impairment charges were recognized during the three months ended December 31, 2021.
Provision for loan losses, net. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we recorded a $4.6 million expected credit loss related to two other loans receivable that were placed on a non-accrual status, partially offset by a $0.8 million recovery related to one other loan receivable that was previously written off.
Property operating expenses. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we recognized $0.5 million of property operating expenses related to assets we plan to sell or repurpose. No similar expenses were incurred during the three months ended December 31, 2021.
General and administrative expense. The $5.5 million, or 51%, decrease in general and administrative expense was primarily related to a decrease in stock compensation expense of $4.1 million and a decrease in non-routine transaction costs of $1.4 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the three months ended December 31, 2021.
Gain on sale of real estate. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we recorded a $0.2 million gain on sale of real estate related to the sale of one SNF. During the three months ended December 31, 2021, we recorded a $0.1 million gain on sale of real estate related to the sale of one land parcel.

Not meaningful     
Rental income. The $0.8 million, or 2%, increase in rental income is primarily due to a $2.9 million increase in rental income from real estate investments made after January 1, 2021, $0.8 million due to contractual increases in rental rates for our existing tenants and a $0.3 million increase in tenant reimbursements, partially offset by a $2.2 million decrease in rental income and tenant reimbursements related to moving certain tenants to a cash basis method of accounting and a $1.0 million write-off of uncollectible rent.
Interest and other income. The $36,000, or 7%, decrease in interest and other income is primarily due to placing one other loan receivable on non-accrual status during the three months ended March 31, 2022.
Depreciation and amortization. The $0.1 million, or 1%, increase in depreciation and amortization was primarily due to an increase in depreciation and amortization of $1.2 million related to new real estate investments and capital improvements made after January 1, 2021, partially offset by a decrease in depreciation of $0.6 million due to assets becoming fully depreciated after January 1, 2021 and a $0.5 million decrease from assets reclassified as held for sale
Interest expense. Interest expense decreased by $20,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021 due to the redemption in full of our 5.25% Senior Notes due 2025 in July 2021, offset by the issuance in June 2021 of our Notes at a lower interest rate.
Property taxes. The $0.7 million, or 104%, increase in property taxes was primarily due to a $0.3 million increase due to changes in estimates of property taxes expected to be paid directly by us as a result of certain assets being designated as held for sale during the three months ended March 31, 2022, a $0.3 million increase due to new real estate investments made after January 1, 2021 and a $0.1 million increase related to the transfer of certain properties to new operators that do not make direct tax payments.
Impairment of real estate investments. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we recognized an aggregate impairment charge of $59.7 million related to 20 properties that all met the held for sale criteria during the quarter. See above under “Recent Developments” for additional information. No impairment charges were recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2021.
Provision for loan losses, net. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we recorded a $4.6 million expected credit loss related to two other loans receivable that were placed on non-accrual status, partially offset by a $0.8 million recovery related to one other loan receivable that was previously written off.
22

Property operating expenses. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we recognized $0.5 million of property operating expenses related to assets we plan to sell or repurpose. No similar expenses were incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2021.
General and administrative expense. The $0.1 million, or 1%, increase in general and administrative expense was primarily related to higher cash wages of $0.3 million, partially offset by lower professional services expense of $0.1 million and lower stock compensation expense of $0.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021.
Gain (loss) on sale of real estate. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we recorded a $0.2 million gain on sale of real estate related to the sale of one SNF. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, we recorded a $0.2 million loss on sale of real estate related to the sale of one SNF.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
To qualify as a REIT for federal income tax purposes, we are required to distribute at least 90% of our REIT taxable income, determined without regard to the dividends paid deduction and excluding any net capital gains, to our stockholders on an annual basis. Accordingly, we intend to make, but are not contractually bound to make, regular quarterly dividends to common stockholders from cash flow from operating activities. All such dividends are at the discretion of our board of directors.
Our short-term liquidity requirements consist primarily of operating and interest expenses directly associated with our properties, including:
interest expense and scheduled debt maturities on outstanding indebtedness;
general and administrative expenses;
dividend plans;
operating lease obligations; and
capital expenditures for improvements to our properties.
Our long-term liquidity needs consist primarily of funds necessary to pay for acquisitions, capital expenditures, and scheduled debt maturities. We intend to invest in and/or develop additional healthcare and seniors housing properties as suitable opportunities arise and so long as adequate sources of financing are available. We expect that future investments in and/or development of properties, including any improvements or renovations of current or newly-acquired properties, will depend on and will be financed by, in whole or in part, our existing cash, borrowings available to us under the Amended Credit Facility (as defined below), future borrowings or the proceeds from sales of shares of our common stock pursuant to our ATM Program or additional issuances of common stock or other securities. In addition, we may seek financing from U.S. government agencies, including through Fannie Mae and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, in appropriate circumstances in connection with acquisitions and refinancing of existing mortgage loans.
We believe that our expected operating cash flow from rent collections, interest payments on our other real estate investments, and borrowings under our Amended Credit Facility, together with our cash balance of $26.6 million, available borrowing capacity of $495.0 million under the Revolving Facility (as defined below) and availability under the ATM Program of $476.5 million, each at March 31, 2022, will be sufficient to meet ongoing debt service requirements, dividend plans, operating lease obligations, capital expenditures, working capital requirements and other needs for at least the next 12 months. We expect to meet our long-term liquidity needs with cash flows from operations and financing arrangements. While we are currently pursuing the sale, re-tenanting or repurposing of certain of our assets in connection with our ongoing review and monitoring of our investment portfolio as described under “Recent Developments” above, we currently do not expect to sell any of our properties to meet liquidity needs, although we may do so in the future. Our quarterly cash dividend, any share repurchases under our Repurchase Program (as defined below) and any failure of our operators to pay rent may impact our available capital resources.
On March 20, 2020, our board of directors authorized a share repurchase program to repurchase up to $150.0 million of outstanding shares of our common stock (the “Repurchase Program”). Repurchases under the Repurchase Program, which expires on March 31, 2023, may be made through open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions, structured or derivative transactions, including accelerated share repurchase transactions, or other methods of acquiring shares, in each case subject to market conditions and at such times as shall be permitted by applicable securities laws and determined by management. Repurchases under the Repurchase Program may also be made pursuant to a plan adopted under Rule 10b5-1 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). We expect to finance any share repurchases under the Repurchase Program using available cash and may also use short-term borrowings under the Revolving Facility. Through March 31, 2022, we have not repurchased any shares of common stock under the Repurchase Program and, as
23

of March 31, 2022, we had $150.0 million of remaining authorization under the Repurchase Program. The Repurchase Program may be modified, discontinued or suspended at any time.
We have filed an automatic shelf registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that expires in March 2023, which will allow us or certain of our subsidiaries, as applicable, to offer and sell shares of common stock, preferred stock, warrants, rights, units and debt securities through underwriters, dealers or agents or directly to purchasers, in one or more offerings on a continuous or delayed basis, in amounts, at prices and on terms we determine at the time of the offering.
Although we are subject to restrictions on our ability to incur indebtedness, we expect that we will be able to refinance existing indebtedness or incur additional indebtedness for acquisitions or other purposes, if needed. However, there can be no assurance that we will be able to refinance our indebtedness, incur additional indebtedness or access additional sources of capital, such as by issuing common stock or other debt or equity securities, on terms that are acceptable to us or at all.
We currently are in compliance with all debt covenants on our outstanding indebtedness.
Cash Flows
The following table presents selected data from our condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the periods presented (dollars in thousands):
 For the Three Months Ended March 31,
 20222021
 
Net cash provided by operating activities$34,579 $33,949 
Net cash used in investing activities(24,072)(133,300)
Net cash (used in) provided by financing activities(3,816)110,901 
Net increase in cash and cash equivalents6,691 11,550 
Cash and cash equivalents as of the beginning of period19,895 18,919 
Cash and cash equivalents as of the end of period$26,586 $30,469 
Net cash provided by operating activities increased $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021. Operating cash inflows are derived primarily from the rental payments received under our lease agreements, including as a result of new investments, and interest payments on our other real estate investments. Operating cash outflows consist primarily of interest expense on our borrowings and general and administrative expenses. The net increase of $0.6 million in cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2022 is primarily due to increased rental payments as a result of new investments, partially offset by moving certain tenants to a cash basis method of accounting and an increase in cash paid for general and administrative expenses.
Cash used in investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was primarily comprised of $24.0 million in acquisitions of real estate and investments in other loans and $1.9 million of purchases of equipment, furniture and fixtures and improvements to real estate, partially offset by $1.0 million in net proceeds from real estate sales and $0.9 million of payments received from other loans receivable. Cash used in investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was primarily comprised of $138.9 million in acquisitions of real estate and investments in other loans and $1.3 million of purchases of equipment, furniture and fixtures and improvements to real estate, partially offset by $6.8 million in net proceeds from real estate sales and $0.1 million of payments received from other loans receivable.
Our cash flows used in financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were primarily comprised of $26.0 million in dividends paid and a $2.8 million net settlement adjustment on restricted stock, partially offset by $25.0 million in borrowings under our Amended Credit Facility (as defined below). Our cash flows provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were primarily comprised of $120.0 million in borrowings under our Amended Credit Facility and $16.2 million of net proceeds from the issuance of common stock under our ATM Program, partially offset by $24.0 million in dividends paid and a $1.3 million net settlement adjustment on restricted stock.

Material Cash Requirements
Our material cash requirements from known contractual and other obligations, including commitments for capital expenditures, include:
3.875% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2028
On June 17, 2021, the Issuers completed a private offering of $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of 3.875% Senior Notes due 2028. The Notes accrue interest at a rate of 3.875% per annum payable semiannually in arrears on June 30 and December 30 of each year, commencing on December 30, 2021. As of March 31, 2022, we were in compliance with all applicable financial covenants under the indenture governing the Notes. See Note 7, Debt, to our condensed consolidated financial statements included in this report for further information about the Notes.
Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility and Term Loan
Our amended and restated credit and guaranty agreement with KeyBank National Association, as administrative agent, an issuing bank and swingline lender, and the lenders party thereto (the “Amended Credit Agreement”) provides for: (i) an unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Facility”) with revolving commitments in an aggregate principal amount of $600.0 million, including a letter of credit subfacility for 10% of the then available revolving commitments and a swingline loan subfacility for 10% of the then available revolving commitments and (ii) an unsecured term loan credit facility (the “Term Loan” and, together with the Revolving Facility, the “Amended Credit Facility”) in an aggregate principal amount of $200.0 million. Future borrowings under the Amended Credit Facility will be used for working capital purposes, for capital expenditures, to fund acquisitions and for general corporate purposes.
As of March 31, 2022, we had $200.0 million outstanding under the Term Loan and $105.0 million outstanding under the Revolving Facility. The Revolving Facility has a maturity date of February 8, 2023, and includes, at our sole discretion, two, six-month extension options. The Term Loan has a maturity date of February 8, 2026.
The interest rates applicable to loans under the Revolving Facility are, at the Operating Partnership’s option, equal to either a base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.10% to 0.55% per annum or LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.10% to 1.55% per annum based on the debt to asset value ratio of our consolidated subsidiaries (subject to decrease at the Operating Partnership’s election if we obtain certain specified investment grade ratings on our senior long-term unsecured debt). The interest rates applicable to loans under the Term Loan are, at the Operating Partnership’s option, equal to either a base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.50% to 1.20% per annum or LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.50% to 2.20% per annum based on the debt to asset value ratio of our consolidated subsidiaries (subject to decrease at the Operating Partnership’s election if we obtain certain specified investment grade ratings on our senior long-term unsecured debt). In addition, the Operating Partnership will pay a facility fee on the revolving commitments under the Revolving Facility ranging from 0.15% to 0.35% per annum, based on the debt to asset value ratio of our consolidated subsidiaries (unless we obtain certain specified investment grade ratings on our senior long-term unsecured debt and the Operating Partnership elects to decrease the applicable margin as described above, in which case the Operating Partnership will pay a facility fee on the revolving commitments ranging from 0.125% to 0.30% per annum based off the credit ratings of our senior long-term unsecured debt). Interest payments on the Term Loan and Revolving Facility are due monthly and facility fee payments are due quarterly.
As of March 31, 2022, we were in compliance with all applicable financial covenants under the Amended Credit Agreement. See Note 7, Debt, to our condensed consolidated financial statements included in this report for further information about the Amended Credit Agreement.
Capital Expenditures
As of March 31, 2022, we had committed to fund expansions, construction and capital improvements at certain triple-net leased facilities totaling $5.5 million, of which $4.4 million is subject to rent increase at the time of funding. We expect to fund the capital expenditures in the next one to two years. See Note 11, Commitments and Contingencies, to our condensed consolidated financial statements included in this report for further information regarding our obligation to finance certain capital expenditures under our triple-net leases.
Dividend Plans
We are required to pay dividends in order to maintain our REIT status and we expect to make quarterly dividend payments in cash with the annual dividend amount no less than 90% of our annual REIT taxable income, determined without regard to the dividends paid deduction and excluding any net capital gains. See Note 8, Equity, to our condensed consolidated
25

financial statements included in this report for a summary of the cash dividends per share of our common stock declared by our Board of Directors for the three months ended March 31, 2022.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
Our condensed consolidated financial statements included in Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information set forth in the Accounting Standards Codification, as published by the Financial Accounting Standards Board. GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions regarding future events that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. We base these estimates on our experience and assumptions we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. However, if our judgment or interpretation of the facts and circumstances relating to various transactions or other matters had been different, we may have applied a different accounting treatment, resulting in a different presentation of our financial statements. We periodically reevaluate our estimates and assumptions, and in the event they prove to be different from actual results, we make adjustments in subsequent periods to reflect more current estimates and assumptions about matters that are inherently uncertain. Please refer to “Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates” in the “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, filed with the SEC on February 16, 2022, for further information regarding the critical accounting policies that affect our more significant estimates and judgments used in the preparation of our condensed consolidated financial statements included in Part I, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. There have been no material changes in such critical accounting policies during the three months ended March 31, 2022.
 
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.
Our primary market risk exposure is interest rate risk with respect to our variable rate indebtedness.
Our Amended Credit Agreement provides for revolving commitments in an aggregate principal amount of $600.0 million and an unsecured term loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of $200.0 million from a syndicate of banks and other financial institutions.
The interest rates applicable to loans under the Revolving Facility are, at the Company’s option, equal to either a base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.10% to 0.55% per annum or LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.10% to 1.55% per annum based on the debt to asset value ratio of the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries (subject to decrease at the Operating Partnership’s election if the Company obtains certain specified investment grade ratings on its senior long-term unsecured debt). The interest rates applicable to loans under the Term Loan are, at the Operating Partnership’s option, equal to either a base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.50% to 1.20% per annum or LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.50% to 2.20% per annum based on the debt to asset value ratio of the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries (subject to decrease at the Operating Partnership’s election if the Company obtains certain specified investment grade ratings on its senior long-term unsecured debt). As of March 31, 2022, we had a $200.0 million Term Loan outstanding and had $105.0 million outstanding under the Revolving Facility.
An increase in interest rates could make the financing of any acquisition by us more costly as well as increase the costs of our variable rate debt obligations. Rising interest rates could also limit our ability to refinance our debt when it matures or cause us to pay higher interest rates upon refinancing and increase interest expense on refinanced indebtedness. Increased inflation may also have a pronounced negative impact on the interest expense we pay in connection with our outstanding indebtedness, as these costs could increase at a rate higher than our rents.
In addition, the Chief Executive of the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority (the “FCA”), which regulates LIBOR, has announced that the FCA will no longer persuade or compel banks to submit rates for the calculation of LIBOR after 2021. However, for U.S. dollar LIBOR, the relevant date was deferred to June 30, 2023 for certain tenors (including overnight and one, three, six and 12 months), at which time the LIBOR administrator will cease publication of U.S. dollar LIBOR. Despite this deferral, the LIBOR administrator has advised that no new contracts using U.S. dollar LIBOR should be entered into after December 31, 2021. These actions indicate that the continuation of U.S. LIBOR on the current basis cannot and will not be guaranteed after June 30, 2023. Moreover, it is possible that U.S. LIBOR will be discontinued or modified prior to June 30, 2023. When LIBOR ceases to exist, we will need to enter into an amendment to the Amended Credit Agreement and we cannot predict what alternative index would be negotiated with our lenders. If our lenders have increased costs due to changes in LIBOR, we may experience potential increases in interest rates on our variable rate debt, which could adversely impact our
26

interest expense, results of operations and cash flows. Based on our outstanding debt balance as of March 31, 2022 described above and the interest rates applicable to our outstanding debt at March 31, 2022, assuming a 100 basis point increase in the interest rates related to our variable rate debt, interest expense would have increased approximately $0.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022.
We may, in the future, manage, or hedge, interest rate risks related to our borrowings by means of interest rate swap agreements. However, the REIT provisions of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, substantially limit our ability to hedge our assets and liabilities. See “Risk Factors — Risks Related to Our Status as a REIT — Complying with REIT requirements may limit our ability to hedge effectively and may cause us to incur tax liabilities,” which is included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. As of March 31, 2022, we had no swap agreements to hedge our interest rate risks. We also expect to manage our exposure to interest rate risk by maintaining a mix of fixed and variable rates for our indebtedness.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.
Disclosure Controls and Procedures
We maintain disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports under the Exchange Act is processed, recorded, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and regulations and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.
As of March 31, 2022, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, regarding the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures. Based on the foregoing, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective, at the reasonable assurance level, as of March 31, 2022.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that occurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2022 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
