Deal of the Week
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia announced it entered into an agreement to sell seven properties to Center Management Group, a New York-based operator of nursing facilities in New Jersey and New York. The purchase price is approximately $145 million, or $101,750 per bed/unit. The portfolio, all in Philadelphia and the surrounding area, includes five skilled nursing facilities, one CCRC and one independent and assisted living community with a total of approximately 1,215 nursing beds, 150 IL units and 60 AL units. Approximate 2013 revenues and adjusted EBITDA were $138.0 million and $3.9 million, respectively, but we assume the buyer has big plans to increase the cash flow. This is a huge deal for Center Management, since it will increase its portfolio by 50%. KPMG represented the seller in the transaction, which is expected to close by the end of the year. ………..

Financing of the Week 
Matthew Whitlock of the CBRE Senior Housing Services group closed on a $38 million first mortgage financing with Fannie Mae. The new loan, secured by a 265-unit retirement community in Rhode Island with independent living, assisted living, memory care and private pay skilled nursing units, refinanced and consolidated the community’s first and supplemental financings, both of which were through Fannie Mae. The seven-year loan has a 30-year amortization, and the fixed interest rate is 4.36%, or about 220 basis points over the seven-year Treasury. That is a very attractive rate, and although this was a refinancing and not an acquisition loan, it is one of the reasons why the acquisition market is so hot with prices going up and cap rates getting more aggressive with buyers returning to paying a multiple on first or second year cash flow, as opposed to trailing 12 months cash flow………..Want to read more news?
