Deal of the Week
Capital Senior Living has purchased three senior living communities that it has been managing on behalf of a joint venture in which it held a 10% interest. The price was $83.6 million, or $193,100 per unit. The properties are located in Ohio and have 227 independent living units and 206 assisted living units. It appears that revenues and EBITDA are about $17.8 million and $7.0 million respectively, for an operating margin of 39% after management fee. Two of the communities are financed with $40.1 million of 10-year, fixed rate non-recourse debt with a blended rate of 4.41%, plus $21.6 million for the third property in a two-year bridge with a variable rate of approximately 2.90%. Combined with a just announced refinance of 15 other communities for $156.5 million, Capital Senior Living has lowered its overall long-term debt costs by 50 basis points since the first quarter of 2014, to 4.72%. The new debt also resulted in $36.5 million in incremental cash proceeds. Not too shabby……….. Want to read more news?

Financing of the Week 
Deutsche Bank committed $940 million to refinance $920 million of CMBS debt on behalf of Rubin Schron and his portfolio of 167 skilled nursing facilities with 20,222 beds in 19 states. These properties are operated by Sava SeniorCare and 61% of the facilities are in Texas, North Carolina and Colorado. Of the total amount, $550 million was priced at LIBOR plus 535 basis points and $150 million was priced at LIBOR plus 451 basis points. There are three mezzanine pieces totaling $240 million, and NorthStar Healthcare Income took the highest yielding one at LIBOR plus 1027, with a $75 million face amount. This is a huge deal for the market. Housing & Healthcare Finance provided Deutsche Bank with assistance in all aspects of the underwriting, including deriving the final underwritten cash flow, appraisal review, site visits and preparation of rating agency and investor presentations. Further details of this financing are in the July issue of The SeniorCare Investor…………..Want to read more news?

Stat of the Week 
We just heard that the number of patients in skilled nursing facilities has declined by approximately 20% from 2000 to 2010, or from 1.6 million to 1.3 million. That is a staggering number, especially since there have been some industry observers worried that there were not going to be enough skilled nursing beds for the aging population. It is true that small older nursing facilities have been closing down, especially in the Northeast where a few states have been pushing for the closure of the smallest and perhaps most inefficient facilities. The push for community-based care has obviously had an impact, and perhaps balanced the loss of some beds in certain markets. With assisted living and memory care communities taking on higher and higher acuity residents, there may be a further drop in skilled nursing census until the baby boomers start to fill the void in 15 years or more. Despite the census drop of 300,000, we have not seen overall occupancy levels plunging……..Want to read more news?
