Upon closing, the first year unlevered cash yield of the portfolio is expected to be 4.9%. The Company expects that the transaction will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2021.
At closing, the Company anticipates funding the purchase of the Pending Acquisitions through the issuance of units of the Operating Partnership, the assumption of indebtedness on certain properties, the satisfaction of existing mezzanine loans outstanding, and proceeds from its unsecured line of credit.
The Master Transaction Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the parties. The Pending Acquisitions are also subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions to closing, including the waiver of health system purchase rights with respect to certain properties. There can be no assurance that any or all of the conditions to closing will be satisfied or, if satisfied, that the Operating Partnership will complete the Pending Acquisitions, or effectuate the closing in a timely manner or at all.
