The sole condition to the closing of the transactions contemplated by the MTA is the receipt of all necessary healthcare regulatory approvals in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and West Virginia to the transfer of the operating licenses from FC/SCH to Genesis. If not received as of the closing, the facilities located in Vermont will be added to the new master lease when the regulatory approvals for Vermont are received.

As a result of the MTA, during the second quarter of 2011, the Company evaluated the recoverability of the straight-line rent and lease inducements associated with FC/SCH and recorded a $4.1 million provision for uncollectible accounts associated with straight-line receivables and lease inducements.
