Senior Housing Finance Activity: PointClickCare Raises $85 Million

PointClickCare Closes $85 Million Financing Round, Postpones Potential IPO

PointClickCare Technologies announced on Wednesday that it has closed an $85 million financing round led by San Francisco-based public and private investment firm Dragoneer Investment Group. JMI Equity also participated in the round.

PointClickCare, based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, provides cloud-based software and services for the senior living and long-term post-acute care markets.


With this financing in place, PointClickCare plans to remain a private company—at least for now.

“We are not ruling out the public markets as a financing option to fuel future expansion,” PointClickCare founder and CEO Mike Wessinger said in a press release. “But our track record of successfully delivering sustainable growth has put us in an enviable position for any private technology company—to execute an IPO only when the market conditions offer the most favorable opportunity for our business, our customers and our investors. In other words, we can afford to wait until the timing is right for us.”

PointClickCare’s partnership with Dragoneer Investment Group, meanwhile, will allow PointClickCare “to more quickly take advantage of ways to help our customers thrive given the unique challenges facing the global health care industry,” Wessinger added.

HJ Sims Announces Refinancing for Presbyterian Retirement Communities in Florida

Fairfield, Connecticut-based privately held investment bank and wealth management firm HJ Sims recently announced the refinancing of Presbyterian Retirement Communities (PRC), doing business as Westminster Communities of Florida, the 10th largest U.S. nonprofit operator of senior living communities.

PRC engaged HJ Sims in August 2016 to advance refund its 2010A bonds and fund as much as $45 million of new money for capital projects. HJ Sims collaborated with PRC to decrease the overall cost of capital and annual debt service and increase debt capacity; use additional debt capacity to borrow new money without impacting credit rating; and provide improvements to financial covenants.

To meet PRC’s financing objectives, HJ Sims collaborated with the Obligated Group to produce several refinancing structures, monitor the capital market environment throughout the financing process and adjust as conditions changed to maximize annual net present value savings on the refunding portion of the issue. HJ Sims limited aggregate maximum annual debt service for the proposed 2016 issue in combination with PRC’s existing debt.

HJ Sims successfully closed the $160.365 million issue on Dec. 15, 2016 with an all in true-interest-cost of 4.27%. On a present value basis, the refunding saves PRC about $9.421 million, with actual aggregate savings of about $34.8 million through the life of the prior bonds.

As of result of the financing, PRC was able to reduce overall cost of capital; provide additional debt capacity and maintain a Fitch rating of A-; and reduce its debt service reserve fund requirement for the 2016, saving PRC about $2.35 million in borrowing costs from the previous requirement. Improvements were made to the covenants, enabling PRC to transfer cash money or assets in and out of the obligated group with less restrictions.
