On September 19, 2017, a privately-held group of real property holding companies for skilled-nursing facilities (collectively the "Company") completed a $378 million real property (together with limited personal property assets) sale transaction with Sabra Health Care REIT, Inc. (NasdaqGS: SBRA). The sale consisted of 21 facilities with a leaseback to existing operators (collectively the "Operators") and was completed at an 8.0% cap rate. The transaction was conducted to achieve liquidity for multi-generational owners. The price equaled $194,000 per licensed bed. With the sale/leaseback of three additional facilities for $52 million, which is expected to close by the end of 2017, the transaction will total $430 million.
Duff & Phelps served as exclusive financial advisor to the Company in relation to the sale/leaseback.
