CNL Healthcare Properties Expands Senior Housing Portfolio with Two Properties in Iowa

Company also pays off mezzanine loan early, reducing interest

(ORLANDO, Fla.) May 1, 2013 — CNL Healthcare Properties, an investment offering focused on senior housing and healthcare real estate, has acquired two senior housing communities in Iowa for $12.16 million through a joint venture with GCI Development, LLC. CNL Healthcare Properties and GCI Development acquired three other Windsor Manor properties through another joint venture last fall. The portfolio now includes five Windsor properties totaling 204 units, all in Iowa.

“We are pleased to partner with GCI Development to add these communities to the CNL Healthcare Properties portfolio,” said Stephen H. Mauldin, president and CEO of CNL Healthcare Properties. “We continue to see strong fundamentals in the senior housing industry and seek opportunities to capitalize on investments that are beneficial both for our investors and the properties.”

CNL Healthcare Properties owns a 75 percent interest in the joint venture, which acquired Windsor Manor of Indianola, a 42-unit assisted living and memory care community located in Indianola, Iowa; and Windsor Manor of Grinnell, a 30-unit assisted living and 10-unit memory care community located in Grinnell, Iowa.

“We are delighted to be expanding our relationship with CNL Healthcare Properties in the acquisition of these two properties,” said Steven Heyer, President of GCI Development, LLC. “We have established a very strong relationship with the company over the last several months and were looking for an opportunity to work together again. The addition of these two assets to the joint venture is the logical next step.”

Provision Living, LLC will manage both properties under a long-term management agreement.

“We are excited to grow our partnership with CNL Healthcare Properties,” said Todd Spittal, co-founder of Provision Living. “Each community is dedicated to providing environments where seniors can thrive in an atmosphere of respect, comfort and grace, and where quality of life is the utmost importance.”

Since the launch of CNL Healthcare Properties in the summer of 2011, the fund has acquired interests in senior housing and healthcare assets valued at more than $560 million.

Mezzanine Loan Paid Off Early

The company also recently paid off a $40 million mezzanine loan, which it entered into in June 2012 in order to acquire seven senior living properties for $226 million in a joint venture with Sunrise Senior Living.

“Thanks to our early capital deployment momentum and the recent success of our capital raise, CNL Healthcare Properties was able to pay off this loan several months earlier than anticipated,” Mauldin said. “This credit facility allowed us to make a substantial investment in a high-quality portfolio of senior living communities early in our life cycle and now the early repayment of these funds will result in measurable interest savings in 2013.”
