Acadia Healthcare Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACHC) today announced two agreements to purchase an aggregate of eight inpatient psychiatric facilities with approximately 600 beds.

BCA operates three inpatient psychiatric facilities and one psychiatric hospital within a hospital. The facilities are located in Ohio, Michigan and Texas and have 278 licensed inpatient beds, over 90% of which are acute inpatient beds. The facilities produced revenues of $60.5 million for the twelve months ended September 30, 2012. Acadia expects to complete the transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, in late December 2012.

The Company also has agreed to acquire AmiCare Behavioral Centers, headquartered in Fayetteville, AR, for total consideration of $113 million in cash.

In addition to providing Acadia our first entry into Ohio, which is our 21 st state, these transactions will significantly expand our beds in operation. We continue to consider additional acquisition opportunities in the fragmented inpatient behavioral health industry.”
