The Big Picture: Not-For-Profit Vs. For-Profit Senior Living

Recorded March 8, 2012

Times are changing and an in depth comparison between not-for-profit and for-profit business models is now crucial. Though they are traditionally thought of as having more similarities than differences, the narrowed cost gap of debt financing has nearly wiped out the advantage that tax-exempt organizations have always enjoyed. What's the current competitive picture with regard to financing, the ability to take on debt, and the general operational motivation of the two models? How do long-term expectations differ, for example exit strategy or future sale vs. mission? Generally speaking, for-profits are better able to capitalize on efficiencies with respect to cash flow and maximizing financial returns. Can overleveraging by not-for-profits permanently hamper their success? What's the current environment regarding property-tax exemptions? Details in the current environment are a must-learn and will surprise you.
