Slowest Q4 For Senior Care M&A Since 2014

Slowest Q4 For Senior Care M&A Since 2014

Despite a strong December, when we recorded 30 long-term care transactions, the fourth quarter of 2017 was slow by all recent standards. These are preliminary numbers and may be revised upward in the coming weeks, but with just 69 announced acquisitions, Q4:17 was the least active quarter in terms of number of transactions since Q2:14, when we recorded just 63 deal announcements. Compared to the previous years’ fourth quarters, 2017 fell short significantly, down from the 93 deals recorded in Q4:16 and from the 108 deals recorded in Q4:15 (the all-time high for a quarter).

An Optimal Size for Skilled Nursing?

As the skilled nursing market evolves, lengths of stay and occupancy decline, and new entrants like Mainstreet change the way we view skilled nursing/post-acute care facilities, what is the ideal size of facility now? Based on 2016 sales according to the 22nd Edition of The Senior Care Acquisition Report, the average size of skilled nursing facilities sold dropped for the first time in three years to 122 beds, and was closer to the historical norm of 120 beds. That fell from 130 beds in 2015, and is the lowest since 2013, when facilities averaged 121 beds. The smallest facility sold in 2016 was 40 beds, compared with 30 beds in 2015, while the largest facility sold in 2016 was 744 beds,... Read More »
