NORWALK, CT – August 23, 2012 – The SeniorCare Investor will be hosting an invaluable webcast to address the current merger and acquisition market on Thursday, September 13, 2012. 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?
The moderator of the conference, Stephen M. Monroe, Editor of The SeniorCare Investor, will pose topical questions including: How have values changed since 2011? Are cap rates still declining? What’s the difference between “A” and “B” property cap rates and per-unit prices? Has the current rally in valuations simply been a financial phenomenon because of historically low debt costs, or is something else happening? Are sellers waiting for the election to see what the tax, reimbursement and regulatory environment will be? Is the current environment a repeat of the 2006-2007 market peak?
Our hand-selected panel of senior living experts will address these issues and answer any pressing questions the audience chooses to submit. Our experts include: Justin Hutchens, President and Chief Operating Officer, National Health Investors; Arnold Whitman, Co-Founder and Chairman, Formation Capital LLC; plus additional speakers to be announced.
The publisher of The SeniorCare Investor, Eleanor Meredith, invites you to take part in this must-see webcast. 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? What will be the impact of the just announced acquisition of Sunrise Senior Living by Health Care REIT? Will there be more not-for-profit sellers in the future as they seek to monetize their assets which have become unprofitable? 
This webcast, hosted by The SeniorCare Investor, is expected to generate a stimulating discussion. 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 webcast, entitled “M&A Market: Holding Steady, But Ready To Surge?”, to be held on Thursday, August 16 at 1:00 pm ET.
