Stocks in this article: SBRA

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sabra Health Care REIT, Inc. ("Sabra," the "Company" or "we") (Nasdaq:SBRA) (Nasdaq:SBRAP) announced today the acquisition of six senior housing campuses with a total of 673 beds/units, covering the spectrum of care (292 skilled nursing beds, 213 independent living units and 168 assisted living units). All six facilities are located within approximately 100 miles of Omaha, Nebraska. Concurrently with the purchase, we entered into a triple-net master lease agreement with affiliates of Nye Senior Services, LLC ("Nye"). The lease has an initial term of 10 years with four renewal options of five years each and provides for an annual rent escalator of 3.0% resulting in annual lease revenues, determined in accordance with GAAP, of $8.0 million and an initial yield on cash rent of 7.78%. The purchase price was funded with available cash.

In addition, Sabra will pay an earn-out based on incremental portfolio value created through expansion and conversion projects. The earn-out amount will be determined based on portfolio performance following the third anniversary of the master lease.

Commenting on the Nye acquisition, Rick Matros, CEO and Chairman, said, "This acquisition marks our first entry into Nebraska and aligns us with a terrific operator who has had success in operating senior housing and skilled nursing facilities, a valuable skill set. The management team also has expansion plans on the docket for certain existing assets, which we anticipate financing. We are very pleased to be partnering with an operating team whose standards are as high as the Nye team's."
