The relationship between LTC Properties (NYSE: LTC) and two of its bankrupt tenants has come to an end.
The Westlake Village, California-based real estate investment trust (REIT) announced it reached settlement agreements with Senior Care Centers and Abri Health Services. LTC agreed to pay the skilled nursing providers $3.25 million in exchange for their assistance and cooperation in transitioning 11 skilled nursing facilities to a new operator, HMG Healthcare.
The properties will be added to a master lease already in place between LTC and HMG, and carry a 12-month term with rent based on cash flows, and payment subject to a six-month deferral. Additionally, LTC will provide HMG with a working capital loan, and will indemnify the operator for expenses incurred during the transition period, which is expected to be completed on Oct. 1, 2021.
With this settlement with the bankrupt Lessee behind us, we look forward to growing our association with HMG Healthcare and having these properties leased to an operator of our choice. We have had a long-standing relationship with the principals of HMG for over a decade and their involvement in reaching the settlement was instrumental,” LTC President and CEO Wendy Simpson said in a statement.
