M&A Market: Holding Steady, But Ready To Surge?

Recorded Thursday, September 13, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. (Eastern)

Despite a persistently weak housing market and looming reimbursement problems, the seniors housing and care acquisition market continues to thrive. One of the biggest problems, however, is that demand for properties is currently greater than the supply, at least for the higher quality properties and portfolios. If external factors continue to present potential roadblocks for high returns on investment, why do so many buyers want to invest in this sector? What do they see that perhaps others are not seeing?  How are they mitigating these risk factors in a choppy economic environment?

Transaction activity has slowed a little in 2012 compared with 2011, at least in terms of number of deals. But will the activity pick up in the second half of the year, and in particular, the fourth quarter, as owners worry about a possible capital gains tax increase in 2013? Will the REITs find large acquisitions like they did in 2011, or are most of the large portfolios gone or just not for sale? Will there be more not-for-profit sellers in the future as they seek to monetize their assets which have become unprofitable?
