NORWALK, CT – February 12, 2014 – Irving Levin Associates, Inc. will be hosting an important webcast to address the senior care merger and acquisition market and the outlook for 2014 on Thursday, February 27, 2014.This webcast is sponsored by Lancaster Pollard. In 2013, values remained relatively high across the seniors housing and care spectrum: skilled nursing facilities, assisted and independent living communities, and memory care facilities. Continuing record-low interest rates have helped valuations and acquisitions, and the turnaround in the economy and housing market have helped to improve operating metrics and cash flow. Our panel of industry experts will analyze 2013 M&A statistics for this sector and provide their outlook for 2014.

The moderator of the webcast, Steve Monroe, Managing Editor and Partner at Irving Levin Associates, Inc., will pose topical questions such as: will the current increase in construction increase values or will it cause a problem down the road? Cap rates weathered the 100 basis point rise in interest rates, but is this realistic for the long term, or is the increased capital allocated to the space keeping any impact negligible? Currently we are in the fourth year of the bull market, which is a record, but can it last? Bidding is as aggressive as ever, so is pricing getting inflated? More capital keeps entering the space, driving acquisition demand, but will it impact future returns?

Our hand-selected panel of experts will address these issues and others—and answer any pressing questions the audience wishes to submit. Our experts include: Brian Beckwith, CEO, Formation Capital; Todd Jensen, Chief Investment Officer, ARC Healthcare Advisors, American Realty Capital; Carl Mittendorff, Chief Investment Officer, The Freshwater Group; Scott Stewart, Founder and Managing Partner, Capitol Seniors Housing; and Matthew Whitlock, Senior Vice President, CBRE National Senior Housing Group.

Founded in 1948, Irving Levin Associates, Inc. is the leading publisher of newsletters, reports, and online data on mergers and acquisitions in the seniors housing and health-care industry. Irving Levin Associates invites you to take part in this can’t-miss webcast.
