Ziegler Advises Retirement Housing Foundation on The Sale Of 15-Community Portfolio

Ziegler Advises Retirement Housing Foundation on The Sale Of 15-Community Portfolio

PR Newswire

CHICAGO, April 19, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, is pleased to announce its role as exclusive sell-side advisor to Retirement Housing Foundation (hereafter "RHF") on the sale of its 15-community senior living portfolio located across six states: California (7 communities), Florida (3), Missouri (2), Indiana (1), Kentucky (1), and South Carolina (1) (the "Portfolio"), for $180,500,000. The Portfolio consisted of 3,200 market-rate independent living, 850 assisted living, memory care, and 563 skilled nursing beds. RHF is a California-based not-for-profit organization.

Dan Revie, Managing Director and Head of Ziegler's Senior Housing & Care Practice added, "We were pleased to be able to assist RHF in this important and transformative transaction."

The Portfolio represented the majority of RHF's presence in market-rate senior housing and post-acute care. The decision to divest the Portfolio was challenging, but strategic, as RHF's organizational philosophy shifted towards serving limited income seniors, people with disabilities and economically disadvantaged families, in RHF's 182 affordable housing settings in 27 states, Puerto Rico, St. Croix and the District of Columbia. The proceeds from the divestiture will be utilized to develop additional affordable housing and to acquire existing affordable housing owned by others.

Pacifica Companies, LLC (Pacifica), a privately-owned real estate, private equity firm based in San Diego, CA with operations across the United States and internationally, purchased the Portfolio with various segments closing in phases throughout late 2022, 2023, and first quarter 2024. Pacifica operates senior housing communities under their "Pacifica Senior Living" and "The Meridian" brands across several states.

Stuart Hartman, President and CEO of Retirement Housing Foundation stated, "The sale of the communities was bittersweet. As a long time operator of housing and healthcare communities we will miss being of service to the residents in the communities we sold. At the same time, we are excited to focus on our affordable housing development, acquisitions and operations, catering to limited income seniors, person with disabilities and families."

Dan Revie, Managing Director and Head of Ziegler's Senior Housing & Care Practice added, "We were pleased to be able to assist RHF in this important and transformative transaction."

Ziegler conducted a thorough, yet targeted, marketing process for the Portfolio and negotiated pricing agreeable to both counterparties despite turbulent conditions in the senior housing and post-acute care capital markets environment.

Mary Muñoz, Senior Managing Director of Ziegler's Senior Living Finance added, "RHF has been a long-term, valued client of our west coast senior living practice. This transaction allows RHF to re-focus on their core affordable housing business, where they are a highly respected national leader."
