AdCare Completes Operations Transfer of 8 Properties, Leases 2, Sells 1

AdCare Health Systems, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ADK), a self-managed health care real estate investment company that invests primarily in real estate purposed for senior living and long-term health care, recently provided an update on its strategic transition to a property holding and leasing company.

“Our progress continues to be steady, swift and on target with the transition plan envisioned by our Board,” said Bill McBride, AdCare’s chairman and CEO. “Today, we place another mile marker along our journey to transition to a property holding and leasing company, with the majority of our properties transitioned to new operators.”

AdCare has completed the transfer of operations of eight Arkansas properties to a third-party operator, effective May 1, 2015. The operations transfer was completed pursuant to lease agreements previously signed with affiliates of Aria Health Group, LLC.

Lease agreements with affiliates of Aria for the company’s two remaining Arkansas facilities were terminated on May 1, 2015. AdCare is seeking to sell or lease these facilities to other regional operators.

It has also signed agreements to lease two Oklahoma properties, which are expected to transfer operations in the third quarter of 2015.

The company signed agreements with affiliates of Southwest LTC Management Services LLC. Southwest LTC operates 20 skilled nursing facilities and one assisted living facility in Texas.

The lease agreements with Southwest are expected to become effective in the third quarter of 2015, subject to Southwest’s receipt of licenses and other approvals required by the state of Oklahoma. The initial term of the leases is 10 years with two five-year renewal options. The initial annual rent will be approximately $1 million and then escalate each year thereafter.

Additionally, AdCare has signed an asset purchase agreement to sell another property in Oklahoma to Gracewood Manor, LLC for approximately $3.5 million. The sale is expected to close in the third quarter of 2015.

The agreement may be terminated by Gracewood Manor for any reason before the 30th day of the due diligence period set forth in the agreement.

Since the Board approved the strategic plan to transition AdCare’s business from an owner and operator of health care facilities to a health care property holding and leasing company, it has entered into agreements for 36 of its 40 health care facilities.
