Sienna Senior Living Inc. Completes Acquisition of Two High-Quality Retirement Residences in Ontario

Posted on: 01 Dec 17

MARKHAM, Ontario, Dec. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sienna Senior Living Inc. (“Sienna” or the “Company”) (TSX:SIA) announced today that it has completed the previously announced acquisition (the “Acquisition”) of two market leading, high-quality residences located in Barrie, Ontario and Kingston, Ontario (the “Acquired Properties”), for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $164 million, subject to customary closing adjustments. 

The Acquired Properties consist of a combined 384 private-pay care suites providing independent living, assisted living and memory care.  The Acquired Properties are well located in attractive markets and have exceptional reputations in their respective communities.

As one of the Acquired Properties is currently in the final stage of lease-up, the aggregate purchase price includes a revenue guarantee of $1.0 million for a two-year term to be held in escrow and used by Sienna to complement cash flow from this residence.

The Acquisition and related transaction costs were financed through a combination of: (i) the assumption of approximately $62 million in existing property-level mortgages, at a weighted average interest rate of 3.6% and a weighted average term to maturity of 4.2 years; (ii) net proceeds of Sienna’s public offering of common shares which closed on November 3, 2017; and the remainder through (iii) draws on the Company's existing credit facilities.  The Company plans to up-finance the existing mortgages on the Acquired Properties in the near term, at which time the proceeds are expected to be used to repay debt incurred in connection with the Acquisition.
