Senior Housing Properties Trust Management Presents At Bank Of America Merrill Lynch 2012 Health Care Conference (Transcript)

Stocks in this article: SNH

And geographically as you would expect, California is the largest segment with most in Southern California, where we just recently bought one at Walnut Creek in Senior Living Community. And Florida Texas in the mid-Atlantic we have significant projects.

And several of the reasons why we think that you would have an interest in investing in our company, one, is the quality of the portfolio. Again, as I mentioned, predominantly private pay, so we have limited exposure to incumbent reimbursement risk. And that’s particularly planning out now. We haven’t bought government dependant nursing home or other type healthcare facility for the past 10 years. So, we have been waiting for this day, when government reimbursement would get tighter and tighter. And I don’t think that’s going to go away any time soon.

And we’ll get into that a little bit more. We’re going to talk about the prices we have paid for our portfolio.

We offer a secure dividend yield today we’re probably a little over 70% given the current market pricing. And we’ve had a history of consistently raising the dividend while maintaining conservative payout ratio. So, we can continue to maintain the current risk dividend as well as several opportunities to raise it.

We’ve always maintained a very strong lowly levered balance sheet. And we’re investment grade rate by Moody’s and S&P so we have access to good low cost of debt. And we have hedge fund access to capital. Over the past year, we raised over $1 billion in capital market’s activity, half debt, half equity about. And we have a $750 million unsecured line of credit available to us to draw – to make acquisitions and to grow.
