On June 15, 2012, Assisted Living Concepts, Inc. (ALC) signed and closed on an agreement (the Purchase Agreement) with Ventas Realty, Limited Partnership (Ventas Realty) and MLD Delaware Trust (MLD) to purchase 12 residences consisting of 696 units (the Properties) for a purchase price of $97 million plus $3 million for a litigation settlement fee plus Ventass expenses in connection with the litigation. The Properties, five located in Georgia, four in South Carolina and one in each of Florida, Alabama and Pennsylvania were previously operated by ALC under (i) the Amended and Restated Master lease Agreement, dated as of January 1, 2008, between Ventas and various ALC subsidiaries signatory thereto, and (ii) the Master Lease and Security Agreement, effective January 1, 2002, between MLD Delaware Trust and ALC (together the Master Leases). The transaction was funded with borrowings available under ALCs $125 million revolving credit agreement.
As part of the Purchase Agreement, Ventas Realty and MLD have agreed to release all past, present and future claims with respect to the Master Leases, the Properties and the Guaranty of Lease dated as of January 1, 2008 made by ALC for the benefit of Ventas Realty Limited Partnership as well as those set forth in the complaint and amended complaint filed in Ventas Realty, Limited Partnership v. ALC CVMA, LLC, et al., 12-cv-03107, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. Additionally, pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, ALC is obligated to indemnify Ventas against losses from third party claims, arising on or prior to the six year anniversary of the Purchase Agreement, relating to the Master Leases or the Properties.
ALC will no longer be obligated under the Master Leases which provided for cash rent payments of $6.4 million and $1.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2011 and the quarter ended March 31, 2012, respectively. Interest on borrowings under ALCs Revolver is expected to be at a rate of LIBOR plus 3.00%. Assuming a consistent LIBOR rate, annual pre-tax cash savings in 2011 would have been approximately $3.2 million. ALC is still in the process of determining other accounting implications related to this transaction.
The foregoing description of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, which is filed as exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
On June 15, 2012, in connection with the purchase and sale of the Properties and the mutual release, ALC and Ventas as lessor, terminated the Master Leases and the Guaranty of Lease dated as of January 1, 2008 made by ALC for the benefit of Ventas. ALC will thus no longer be obligated under the Master Leases, which provided for cash rent payments of $6.4 million and $1.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2011 and the quarter ended March 31, 2012, respectively.
The disclosure set forth in Item 1.01 is incorporated herein by reference.
(b) Pro Forma Financial Statements
The unaudited pro forma financial statements and related notes giving effect to the purchase discussed in Item 1.01 are included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. The unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial statements of income for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and the year ended December 31, 2011, present the results of operation and financial position as if the purchase had occurred on January 1, 2011. The unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated balance sheet gives effect to the acquisition as if it had occurred on March 31, 2012. The all intends to adjust its estimate of fair value allocations and amounts charged to income associated with the transaction based upon final valuation and such changes could be materially different than the amounts included in the pro forma financial statements included in Exhibit 99.1. The all paid $100.0 million plus fees and expenses for the 12 properties and is currently estimating the fair value of the assets received to be approximately $65.0 million. The difference represents the estimated fair value lease termination fee, the write-off of the operating lease intangible, and a litigation settlement fee and deal costs.
The following exhibits are being filed or furnished herewith:
