Sunrise Senior Living, Inc. (NYSE: SRZ) announced it has completed the previously announced restructure transactions with three of the lenders to its German subsidiaries, Capmark Finance Inc., Natixis, London Branch, and Fortis Bank, UK Branch. Under the restructure transactions, which were first announced in October 2009, such lenders agreed to settle and compromise claims that they may have had against Sunrise with respect to its German subsidiaries.
Sunrise also announced that it has entered into a partial settlement and waiver declaration with Aareal Bank AG, pursuant to which Sunrise will be released from its operating deficit and payment guarantee obligations with respect to loans previously made by Aareal to certain of Sunrise’s German subsidiaries in exchange for, among other things, a cash payment of EUR 2.1 million (approximately $2.8 million).
Sunrise states that it is working to settle and compromise claims that one remaining lender to its German communities may have against Sunrise.
"I am very grateful for the persistent work of my colleagues, our advisors and our banks to accomplish this restructuring," said Mark Ordan, Sunrise’s chief executive officer.
