Omega Healthcare Investors
Omega Healthcare Investors is poised to own nearly 875 skilled nursing properties across 41 states, following its merger with Aviv REIT in a $3 billion deal announced Friday. The combination of the powerhouse REITs is just the latest mega-deal in the long-term care sector, and it signals further consolidation is coming.
Omega Healthcare Investors closed a $525 million deal to acquire 55 skilled nursing facilities.
Aviv REIT Inc. netted nearly $279 million in an initial public offering of common stock. The Chicago-based company first tried to go public in 2008 but was stopped by the economic crisis, and a 2009 attempt was met with investor resistance.
Berkadia Commercial Mortgage LLC announced it has originated $59.8 million through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) 232/223(a)(7) program to refinance a portfolio of 12 skilled nursing facilities in Arkansas.
