Norwalk, CT – August 16, 2011 – The SeniorCare Investor is hosting a fast-paced online conference on Thursday, September 8th. The conference will address the mid-year state of the seniors housing M&A market. An analysis of 2011 M&A statistics thus far, combined with a glance into the future, will provide listeners with crucial insight into the current situation in seniors housing M&A at the mid year point. Initially, it seemed as though 2011 would be a record year for M&A activity. A host of developments have created a unique situation that is challenging the surge seen since the summer of 2010. The weak housing market, stagnant economy, and the looming 11.1% cut in overall Medicare reimbursement are threatening an impasse in the investment market.

The moderator of the conference, Stephen M. Monroe, Editor of The SeniorCare Investor and The Senior Care Acquisition Report, will pose topical questions including: Can providers overcome these market and reimbursement challenges? Will the near-term horizon result in a pull-back in buyer interest and values? Are health care REITS satiated with their more than $20 billion of acquisitions in the last year? Or will they be back in the market taking advantage of their low cost of capital and lack of competition for large transactions? Can private equity compete with health care REITs? Who will be completing the smaller transactions?

Our hand-selected panel of seniors housing experts will address these issues and answer any pressing questions the audience chooses to submit, they include: Pat Mulloy, President and CEO, Senior Care, Inc., Stephanie Anderson, Chief Acquisitions Officer-Seniors Housing, Health Care REIT, Inc., and Steve Monroe, Editor of The SeniorCare Investor and The Senior Care Acquisition Report, and Executive Editor of Senior Living Business will serve as moderator. Plus, additional speakers will be announced.

The publisher of The SeniorCare Investor, Eleanor B. Meredith, invites you to take part in this must-see online conference. From the summer of 2010 through the first quarter of 2011, the seniors housing and care merger and acquisition market produced the highest level of activity ever in a nine-month period, posting more than $20 billion in transactions. Most of the dollar volume came from several large REIT acquisitions, but the transaction volume increased substantially as more buyers came back into the market and the supply of capital increased. What has happened since then? Join us as we examine the developments that have shaped the mixed bag of success thus far in 2011.

This online conference, hosted by The SeniorCare Investor, is expected to generate a stimulating discussion on the developments in seniors housing M&A this year. If you’re interested in financing or investing in skilled nursing, assisted living or independent living facilities, you won’t want to miss this fast-paced online conference entitled, ‘Seniors Housing M&A Mid-Year Review and Outlook: Will Housing Market Woes and Medicare Cuts Keep Activity Down?,’ on Thursday,  September 8th at 1:00 pm ET.
