Public REIT Acquires North Carolina Senior Care Portfolio

A publicly traded REIT and its operating partner Saber Healthcare acquired a portfolio of five skilled nursing facilities and one assisted living community in North Carolina for an undisclosed price. The REIT emerged from a competitive bidding process that saw 16 total offers and was ultimately selected due to its likelihood of closing and of not renegotiating on price. Indeed the price, although not disclosed, did not change from the initial bid submitted at the end of August. That is impressive, and kudos to Brandon and Ben Bohland of Senwell Senior Investment Advisors for facilitating the transaction. Featuring 691 licensed beds, including 100 beds (in 77 units) at the private pay... Read More »

60 Seconds With Swett: Seniors Housing & Care Market Nears 500 Transactions for 2022

60 Seconds With Swett: Seniors Housing & Care Market Nears 500 Transactions for 2022

With one month to go until 2023, we are just a handful of deals away from breaking the 500-deal mark for 2022. You’ve heard us say before that the previous record for publicly announced deals was 456, set in 2019 when the biggest issues facing the senior care industry were overdevelopment and a potential PDPM-induced rate readjustment. So, for seniors housing and care buyers and sellers to come together on what we assume will be well more than 500 deals (more when you include the scores of deals confidentially disclosed to us) despite a lingering pandemic, a staffing crisis, inflation and rising interest rates throughout much of the year is impressive. Late last year, we did think there... Read More »

Is The Public Option Passe?

Last month, we raised issues about Sonida Senior Living and its ability to survive through next year without additional capital. Its market cap is low ($86 million), its share price is falling as are its cash balances. G&A expenses have been way too high, but they are beginning to address that. Another company, AlerisLife, is facing similar problems, such as a small market cap ($25 million), a falling share price and G&A expense out of line with its operations ($17 million in the third quarter alone). One good thing going for the company is that it has $79.1 million of cash and just $67 million of long-term debt. And, quarter-end occupancy in the third quarter increased... Read More »
