Skilled Nursing Transactions: Kindred Continues SNF Sell-Off

Kindred Provides Update on Closings for Its Skilled Nursing Facility 

Louisville, Kentucky-based Kindred Healthcare said it completed additional closings connected with its agreement to sell off its skilled nursing assets to BM Eagle Holdings, LLC.

The most recent closings include 12 skilled nursing facilities and one assisted living facility sold since Oct. 1, with proceeds totaling about $31 million. Kindred has completed the sale of 80 skilled nursing facilities and five assisted living facilities as of Dec. 1, for aggregate proceeds of approximately $658 million, according to a release. The entire deal, which involved 89 SNFs, was pegged at about $700 million.


In addition, Kindred reached an agreement to close five leased facilities in Massachusetts with BlueMountain and the relevant landlord; those properties were not involved in the original sale price. The operator has already handed off control to third parties, and the closings are expected in the second quarter of 2018. Kindred also indicated that the company is making progress on selling its five remaining SNFs and one assisted living facility.

The loan has a 30-year maturity, and the loan-to-value ratio was 50% on the new loan, which also funded a capital reserve and escrows for future repairs.
