- The agreement with CNL Lifestyle Properties is for 38 senior living communities with 3,466 living units, including 826 independent living units, 1,860 assisted living units, 744 memory care units, and 36 skilled nursing beds. In the past, roughly 95% of revenues have come from residents' private resources.
- The cap rate is expected to be in excess of 7%, and the deal should close in Q2. Alongside this agreement, SNH has received a bridge loan commitment from Wells Fargo for $700M - that, the assumption of a $153M mortgage, and SNH's $750M revolver should be plenty of liquidity to close both this deal and another previously announced purchase for $539M.
