Deal of the Week 
It’s been a busy 2015 for ROC Seniors Housing Fund Manager, which is part of Salt Lake City-based Bridge Investment Group Advisors. So far this year, ROC has acquired 21 senior living communities in nine different states, totaling 2,247 units, coming on the heels of a 14-property, $230 million-deal announced in September 2014. Not all of the 2015 transactions had revealed prices, but the price per units ranged from $77,700 per unit for a 345-unit senior living community in Glendale, Arizona, up to $246,700 per unit for a portfolio of 4 assisted living communities in Texas.
The most recent transaction, announced last week, was the purchase of 14 senior living properties (with 1,038 units of independent living, assisted living and memory care) from a joint venture between Iron Point Partners and Meridian Senior Living. In addition, ROC agreed to purchase a 46-unit asset in Ohio that will close at a later date. Meridian will stay on as manager, and HFF represented the seller in the transaction……………………………………..Want to read more news?

Rollins-Nelson, an owner/operator of skilled nursing facilities, assisted living communities and acute-care hospitals in California, sought out Capital One Commercial Bank to refinance two of its facilities: a 342-bed SNF in Glendora and a 361-bed (262 of which are assisted living) facility in Long Beach. Shane Passarelli of Capital One led the way in providing both a $30 million senior secured term loan and a $4 million revolving line of credit, which will give Rollins-Nelson the flexibility to refinance existing debt and fund ongoing operations. The company will have access to additional liquidity during the term based on certain performance objectives……………………………………….Want to read more news?

Stat of the Week
With the general rise in the average price per bed, both stabilized (which we define as having an occupancy rate at or above 85%) and non-stabilized skilled nursing facilities saw an increase in their average price per bed. But as with assisted living, it was the non-stabilized group that posted the larger increase, with a 27% in the average price per bed, compared to just a 6% increase for stabilized properties. Non-stabilized facilities on average sold for $63,900 per bed in 2014, while stabilized facilities sold for $94,100 per bed, with the overall average coming out to $76,500 per bed. The faster rise in prices for these struggling facilities shows that buyers in today’s market may not be adequately accounting for the risk that is always associated in skilled nursing……………………………………Want to read more news?
