Commitment to Enter into a $525 Million Sale/Leaseback Transaction – On September 13, 2013, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company committed to enter into a $525 million sale/leaseback transaction in connection with the proposed acquisition of Ark Holding Company, Inc. (“Ark Holding”) by 4 West Holdings, Inc. In connection with the closing of the proposed acquisition, a subsidiary of the Company will acquire title to 56 facilities currently operated by Ark Holding and lease them back to Ark Holding pursuant to a 50-year lease, with rental payments yielding 10.7% per annum over the term of the lease. The sale/leaseback transaction will be accounted for as a capital lease for accounting purposes and, consistent with that treatment, the tenant will have the right to purchase the facilities for a nominal price plus closing costs at the end of the lease. In addition, commencing in the 41st year of the lease, the tenant will have the right to prepay the remainder of its obligations thereunder for an amount equal to the sum of unamortized portion of the original $525 million investment by the Company, the net present value of the remaining payments under the lease, and closing costs. In the event the tenant exercises either of these options, the Company would have the right to purchase the properties for fair market value at the time. The sale/leaseback transaction is subject to the satisfaction of all the conditions to the closing of the proposed acquisition of Ark Holding, including obtaining certain consents and licenses, the absence of any event having a material adverse effect on Ark Holding since the date of the agreement, and the issuance of title insurance on the properties. In September 2013, the Company funded a $15.0 million deposit related to this potential transaction which is included in other assets as of September 30, 2013.

Transition of 11 Arkansas Facilities to a New Operator – On August 30, 2013, the Company transitioned 11 Arkansas skilled nursing facilities (“SNFs”) that were leased to Advocat, Inc. to a new unrelated third party operator. The 11 facilities represent 1,084 operating beds.

Simultaneous with the Advocat master lease amendment, the Company entered into a master lease with a new third party operator. The new master lease expires on August 30, 2023 and includes fixed annual rent escalators.
