HCP Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results


On October 16, 2012, we entered into a definitive agreement to acquire 133 senior housing communities for $1.73 billion, from a joint venture between Emeritus Corporation (“Emeritus”) and Blackstone Real Estate Partners VI, an affiliate of Blackstone (the “Blackstone JV”). Located in 29 states, the portfolio encompasses 10,350 units representing a diversified care mix of 61% assisted living, 25% independent living, 13% memory care and 1% skilled nursing. Based on current operating performance, the 133 communities consist of 99 that are stabilized and 34 currently in lease–up.

Emeritus and its affiliates will continue to operate the communities pursuant to long-term triple-net leases, all of which are guaranteed by the credit of Emeritus. The leases provide total contractual rent in the first year of $105.5 million, representing a 6.1% lease yield. The contractual rent will increase annually by the greater of 3.7% on average or CPI over the initial five years, and thereafter by the greater of 3.0% or CPI for the remaining initial term. At the beginning of the sixth lease year, rent on the 34 lease–up properties will be increased to the greater of the percentage increase in CPI or fair market, subject to a floor of 103% and a cap of 130% of the prior year’s rent, allowing HCP to capture potential upside from these non–stabilized assets. Under the leases, Emeritus is also required to invest an additional $30 million in the portfolio, representing $2,900 per unit.

The properties will be grouped into three comparable pools with initial terms of 14 to 16 years. Emeritus has two extension options, which, if exercised, bring total available lease terms to 30 to 35 years.

Concurrent with the acquisition, Emeritus will purchase nine communities from the Blackstone JV, for which we have agreed to provide secured debt financing of $52 million with a four-year term. The loan is secured by the underlying real estate and is prepayable at Emeritus’ option. The interest rate on the loan will mirror the 6.1% lease yield, including the annual increases through maturity.
