Deal of the Week
American Realty Capital Healthcare Trust purchased a relatively new community, an 89-unit assisted living (69 units) and memory care (20 units) community located in Lady Lake, Florida.

Revenues and EBITDA were just shy of $5.0 million and $2.0 million, respectively, resulting in a current cap rate of 7.5%.

Financing of the Week
In the affordable seniors housing market, Jason Dopolous of Lancaster Pollard helped not-for-profit provider Eskaton refinance a portfolio of seven properties in California that needed to be recapitalized for some renovations. The new HUD debt totaling $20.3 million resulted in more than $200,000 in annual debt service savings and provided $4.8 million for repairs. It was also one of the first times a borrower was able to take advantage of a new HUD rule that allows a developer fee of 15% of the total project cost as opposed to just 15% of the repairs, resulting in nearly $2.7 million in developer fees in the transaction…………Want to read more news?

Stat of the Week
One of the major reasons why the average price paid per bed in the skilled nursing facility market last year set a record of $73,300 per bed had to do with the cash flow of those facilities sold. Both the average and the median net operating income (or EBITDA) of the nursing facilities sold increased to records of $8,200 per bed and $7,600 per bed, respectively. The average NOI per bed in 2013 was 8% higher than in 2012, but 26% higher than in 2011 when there was a significant dip in the average price paid per bed. The higher prices and cash flow have been the result of an increase in nursing facilities sold with a higher acuity mix. These stats and many more are in our recently published Senior Care Acquisition Report, 19th Edition. …….. Want to read more news?
