NORWALK, CT – October 1, 2012 – The SeniorCare Investor will be hosting an online webcast on how to value, sell and buy skilled nursing facilities on Thursday, October 11, 2012. The event will be sponsored by Lancaster Pollard. The skilled nursing market is dead, right? Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement uncertainties are keeping buyers out of the market and prices low, right? All wrong. It is time to think again about the skilled nursing sector and the acquisition market. Recent M&A activity has been robust, to say the least, and prices have been as high as $150,000 per bed and higher. But why are buyers willing to pay what seems like such a high, risky price for an asset that has so many potential problems, but also so much opportunity in the changing post-acute environment? 
The moderator of the webcast, Stephen M. Monroe, Editor of The SeniorCare Investor, will pose topical questions including: How do you determine whether that high cash flow which results in a high value will last?  Does a buyer discount that type of a facility (higher cap rate) because of that risk? Or should it be treated differently?
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: JP LoMonaco, President, Valuation & Information Group; Mark Myers, Senior VP Investments and Senior Director, Marcus & Millchap; plus additional speakers to be announced.
The publisher of The SeniorCare Investor, Eleanor Meredith, invites you to take part in this can’t-miss webcast. There is another side of the market as well, which involves those skilled nursing facilities that sell below the national average of about $50,000 per bed. Who is buying them and can they be turned into much more profitable subacute facilities?  How do you value a SNF with potential, without giving all the upside to the seller?  Should you believe the seller’s forecasts?
This webcast, hosted by The SeniorCare Investor and sponsored by Lancaster Pollard, is expected to generate a stimulating discussion on developments in the skilled nursing M&A market this year. If you’re interested in financing or investing in skilled nursing facilities, you won’t want to miss this crucial webcast entitled, “Skilled Nursing Facilities: Buying, Selling and Valuing” on Thursday, October 11th at 1:00 pm ET.
