Invesque Inc. Closes Previously Announced Acquisition of Three Property Memory Care Portfolio
TORONTO, ONTARIO, FEBRUARY 12, 2018 – Invesque Inc. (TSX: HLP.U) (the “Company”) completed its previously announced acquisition (“Acquisition”) of three memory care properties located throughout the greater Dallas, Texas area.
“Growing our portfolio with high quality operators is the foundation of our strategy. Adding these facilities, with Constant Care as an operator, exemplifies our ability to execute that strategy,” stated Scott White, Chief Executive Officer. “We are excited about the opportunity to grow with an operator like Constant Care.”
High Quality Portfolio: Invesque acquired three stabilized memory care communities (total of 114 units) located in Garland, Grapevine and McKinney, Texas for US$21.5 million.
Attractive Operating Partner: The communities are leased to Constant Care Management Company, a Dallas, Texas based operator of memory care communities with a regional presence in the southern United States. Upon closing the Acquisition, Invesque and Constant Care entered into an absolute net master lease agreement with an initial 15 year term and two five-year extension options.
Enhanced Diversification: The Acquisition further expands Invesque’s geographic diversification into high quality markets, in addition to adding Constant Care to its roster of high-quality operating partners. The Acquisition enhances the Company’s payor mix, as 100% of revenue is expected to be derived from private pay funding sources.
Additional Investment Opportunities: Invesque received a first right to fund and acquire the next three senior housing projects developed and operated by Constant Care.
Immediately Accretive Transaction: The Acquisition is expected to be immediately accretive to the Company’s Adjusted Funds from Operations (“AFFO”) per share.
Upon closing the transaction, the Company’s portfolio expanded to 87 properties with more than 8,900 beds/units across 19 U.S. states and one Canadian province.
Invesque Inc. is a North American health care real estate company with a growing portfolio of high quality properties located in the United States and Canada and operated by best-in-class senior living and care operators primarily under long-term leases and joint ventures. The Company recently closed the acquisition of Care Investment Trust on February 1, 2018.
