The RMR Group Inc. Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2019 Results

Net Income Attributable to The RMR Group Inc. of $0.36 Per Diluted Share and Adjusted Net Income Attributable to The RMR Group Inc. of $0.53 Per Diluted Share

NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The RMR Group Inc. (Nasdaq: RMR) today announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Adam Portnoy, President and Chief Executive Officer, made the following statement regarding the third quarter fiscal 2019 results:

“In the third fiscal quarter, we generated net income of $13.4 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $26.5 million, a sequential quarter increase of 7.2%, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin of 56.6%, a sequential quarter increase of 250 basis points. The sequential quarter increases in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are a result of acquisition activity at Industrial Logistics Properties Trust and the on-going repositioning efforts at certain of our Client Companies.

In June, Hospitality Properties Trust, or HPT, agreed to acquire a net leased portfolio from Spirit MTA REIT, or SMTA, for $2.4 billion. In addition to being accretive to HPT, this transaction, which is expected to close by the end of our fiscal year end on September 30, 2019, is expected to result in over $12 million in annual management services revenues for RMR.

We also recently helped facilitate an equity offering of approximately 7.9 million RMR shares of class A common stock on behalf of three of our Managed Equity REITs, which more than doubled the public float of our class A common stock and should result in enhanced liquidity for our shareholders.

Finally, at the close of the third fiscal quarter, our balance sheet continues to leave us well positioned to assess strategic opportunities for future growth, with $377.1 million of cash on hand and no debt.”

Third Quarter Fiscal 2019 Highlights:

  • Total management and advisory services revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 were $44.4 million, compared to $48.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.
  • The RMR Group Inc. earned management services revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 from the following sources (dollars in thousands):

  • For the three months ended June 30, 2019, adjusted net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc. was $8.6 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, compared to $9.3 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The adjustments to net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc. this quarter included $2.3 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, of impairment losses on its investment in Tremont Mortgage Trust, or TRMT, $0.3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, of unrealized losses on an equity method investment accounted for under the fair value option, and $0.1 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, of separation costs. The adjustments to net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc. for the fiscal third quarter last year were primarily related to separation costs of $0.7 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, and transaction and acquisition related costs of $0.3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share.

  • For the three months ended June 30, 2019, Adjusted EBITDA was $26.5 million and Adjusted EBITDA Margin was 56.6%, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $28.5 million and Adjusted EBITDA Margin of 56.1% for the three months ended June 30, 2018.

  • On December 22, 2017, the U.S government enacted comprehensive tax legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, or the Tax Act. The Tax Act significantly revised the U.S. corporate income tax system by, among other things, lowering corporate income tax rates. Since The RMR Group Inc. has a September 30 fiscal year end, its corporate income tax rates were phased in for our 2018 fiscal year, resulting in a federal statutory tax rate of approximately 24.5% for the fiscal year 2018. The federal statutory tax rate for fiscal year 2019 is 21.0%.

  • As of June 30, 2019, The RMR Group Inc. had $30.6 billion total assets under management compared to total assets under management of $30.0 billion as of June 30, 2018.

Reconciliations to GAAP:

Adjusted net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc., EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations of net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc. determined in accordance with GAAP to adjusted net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc., and of net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as well as calculations of Adjusted EBITDA Margin for each of the three months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 are presented later in this press release.

Total Assets Under Management:

The calculation of total assets under management primarily includes: (i) the gross book value of real estate and related assets, excluding depreciation, amortization, impairment charges or other non-cash reserves, of the Managed Equity REITs and ABP Trust, plus (ii) the gross book value of real estate assets, property and equipment of the Managed Operators, excluding depreciation, amortization, impairment charges or other non-cash reserves, plus (iii) the fair value of investments of Affiliates Insurance Company and the RMR Office Property Fund LP, the managed assets of RMR Real Estate Income Fund and the equity of TRMT. This calculation of total assets under management may include amounts in respect of the Managed Equity REITs that are higher than the calculations of assets under management used for purposes of calculating fees under the terms of the business management agreements, which are based, in part, upon the lesser of the historical cost of real estate assets or total market capitalization, determined monthly. For information on the calculation of assets under management of the Managed Equity REITs for purposes of the fee provisions of the business management agreements, see The RMR Group Inc.’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC. The RMR Group Inc.’s SEC filings are available at the SEC website: www.sec.gov.

(a) The basis on which our base business management fees are calculated for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 may differ from the basis at the end of the periods presented in the table above. As of June 30, 2019, the market capitalization was lower than the historical costs of assets under management for HPT, OPI, and SNH; the historical costs of assets under management for HPT, OPI and SNH as of June 30, 2019, were $10,273,728, $6,436,790 and $8,693,199, respectively. For ILPT, the historical costs of assets under management were lower than their market capitalization of $2,718,871, calculated as of June 30, 2019.

(b) SIR merged with and into OPI (formerly named Government Properties Income Trust) on December 31, 2018 with OPI continuing as the surviving entity.

(2) Reflects the prospective adoption of Accounting Standards Update, or ASU, No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which has been codified as Accounting Standard Codification, or ASC, 606, effective October 1, 2018.

  1. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP financial measures calculated as presented in the tables above. The RMR Group Inc. considers EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin to be appropriate supplemental measures of its operating performance, along with net income, net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc. and operating income. The RMR Group Inc. believes that EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin provide useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain amounts, such as those outlined in the tables above, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin may facilitate a comparison of current operating performance with The RMR Group Inc.’s historical operating performance and with the performance of other asset management businesses. In addition, The RMR Group Inc. believes that providing Adjusted EBITDA Margin may help investors assess The RMR Group Inc.’s performance of its business by providing the margin that Adjusted EBITDA represents to its contractual management and advisory fees (excluding any incentive business management fees). EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc. or operating income as an indicator of The RMR Group Inc.’s financial performance or as a measure of The RMR Group Inc.’s liquidity. These measures should be considered in conjunction with net income, net income attributable to The RMR Group Inc. and operating income as presented in The RMR Group Inc.’s condensed consolidated statements of income. Also, other asset management businesses may calculate EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin differently than The RMR Group Inc. does.

  2. Contractual management and advisory fees are the base business management fees, property management fees and advisory fees The RMR Group Inc. or its subsidiaries earns pursuant to its management and investment advisory agreements with its client companies. These amounts are calculated pursuant to the contractual formulas and do not deduct other asset amortization of $2,354 for each of the three months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 or $7,062 for each of the nine months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, required to be recognized as a reduction to management services revenues in accordance with GAAP and do not include the incentive business management fees of $120,094 and $155,881 that The RMR Group Inc. recognized under GAAP during the nine months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively, which were earned for the calendar years 2018 and 2017, respectively.

WARNING CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other securities laws. Forward-looking statements can be identified by use of words such as “outlook,” “believe,” “expect,” “potential,” “will,” “may,” “estimate,” “anticipate” and derivatives or negatives of such words or similar words. Forward-looking statements in this press release are based upon present beliefs or expectations. However, forward-looking statements and their implications are not guaranteed to occur and may not occur for various reasons, including some reasons beyond The RMR Group Inc.’s control. For example:

  • Mr. Portnoy states that in the third fiscal quarter, RMR generated net income of $13.4 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $26.5 million, a sequential quarter increase of 7.2%, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin of 56.6%, a sequential quarter increase of 250 basis points. He also states that the sequential quarter increases in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are a result of acquisition activity at Industrial Logistics Properties Trust and the on-going repositioning efforts at certain of RMR’s Client Companies. These statements may imply that RMR’S Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin may continue to grow in future periods and that the acquisition activity and the on-going repositioning efforts at certain of RMR’s Client Companies will be successful. However, RMR’s business is subject to various risks, including risks outside its control. In addition, the on-going repositioning efforts at certain of the Client Companies may not be successful and the fees RMR earns from those Client Companies may decline or not meet expectations as a result. Accordingly, RMR’s Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin may not grow in future periods and could decline;
  • Mr. Portnoy also states that, in June 2019, HPT agreed to acquire a net leased portfolio from SMTA for $2.4 billion, which is expected to close by the end of RMR’s fiscal year end on September 30, 2019 and is expected to result in over $12 million in annual management services revenues for RMR. This transaction is subject to closing conditions, including the approval by at least a majority of SMTA’s shareholders. Accordingly, this transaction may not be consummated or it may be delayed. Also, the expected increase in annual management services revenues may not be realized at the amounts expected or at all. Further, RMR expects to incur additional costs to provide management services for these properties and those costs may limit or offset any increased fees it may earn;
  • Mr. Portnoy states that the SMTA transaction is expected to be accretive to HPT, which may imply that HPT will realize increased profitability and higher market capitalizations and that RMR’s business management fees it earns from HPT will increase as a result. However, as noted above, SMTA’s transaction is subject to conditions. Further, HPT’s business, the SMTA properties that HPT would acquire and the businesses conducted at those properties are subject to risks. HPT may not realize increased profits as a result of acquiring those businesses. Even if HPT does realize profits from those properties, its other businesses could underperform and limit or prevent any gain in market capitalization HPT might otherwise realize. Accordingly, RMR may not realize increased business management fees as a result of the SMTA transaction, if it is completed;
  • Mr. Portnoy notes that the recent equity offering of RMR class A common stock by three of RMR’s Managed Equity REITs more than doubled RMR’s nonaffiliated public float of its class A common stock and that this should result in enhanced liquidity for RMR’s shareholders. However, the trading liquidity for RMR’s class A common stock will be subject to various market conditions and factors as well as market perceptions of RMR and its prospects, among other things. As a result, increased trading liquidity may not be realized, may be limited or may be unpredictable and volatile; and
  • Mr. Portnoy states that RMR’s balance sheet continues to leave RMR well positioned to assess strategic opportunities for future growth. This statement may imply that RMR will successfully assess and act upon strategic opportunities for future growth and that RMR’s business will grow and that its operating performance and financial results will improve as a result. However, RMR’s assessments and efforts may not be successful, it may not grow its operating performance and financial results may not improve, and it may realize losses as a result.
