NorthWest International Healthcare Properties REIT Completes Acquisition Of German Medical Office Building

TSX-V: MOB.UN

TORONTO, April 1, 2013 /CNW/ - NorthWest International Healthcare Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (TSXV: MOB.UN) (the "REIT") announced today that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of Medicum Muensterfeld - a newly constructed medical office complex located in Fulda, Germany, approximately 100km northeast of Frankfurt, Germany. The acquisition is expected to be immediately accretive.

At approximately 120,000 square feet, Medicum Muensterfeld is 99% occupied with a weighted average lease expiry of 7.1 years. The property has a diversified tenant base focused on healthcare related users and orthapedic services which benefit from the building's close proximity to the Klinikum Fulda - one of Fulda's leading hospitals.

The purchase price of approximately C$20M is subject to customary closing adjustments and represents an approximate 7.0% in-place cap rate. The REIT's investment was funded from existing resources and new mortgage financing from Deutsche Genossenschafts-Hypothekenbank AG for C$12M with a five year term, a fixed interest rate of 2.37% per annum and a 40 year amortization period.
