LTC Properties, Inc. (NYSE: LTC), a real estate investment trust that primarily invests in seniors housing and health care properties, today announced it has originated a $25 million mezzanine loan for the recapitalization of a five property seniors housing portfolio. The investment was previously discussed in LTC’s 2021 fourth quarter investor conference call on February 18.
The mezzanine loan has a term of five years and two months, with two one-year extension options. It bears interest at 8%, with an IRR of 11%.
Located in Oregon and Montana, the five communities, which include independent living, assisted‑living and memory care, and total 621 units, will be managed by The Springs Living, LLC, an operator new to LTC.
“Closing this solid investment within the first seven weeks of 2022 after a very productive 2021 fourth quarter, demonstrates that LTC is successfully executing its strategy to produce growth for our shareholders,” said Wendy Simpson, LTC’s Chairman and CEO. “Our current focus on structured finance products has served us well, as we’ve been able to participate in financing premier communities, such as those underlying this most recent investment, and build relationships with strong, regional operators with whom we might not otherwise be able to generate business. We will continue to identify a wide array of investment opportunities by providing creative, flexible financing solutions to the right operators, for the right properties at the right time.”
