Senior Housing Properties Trust Announces $512.9 Million Financing From Fannie Mae

August 04, 2009

NEWTON, Mass., Aug 04, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Senior Housing Properties Trust (NYSE: SNH) today announced that it has closed a $512.9 million mortgage financing with Fannie Mae (NYSE: FNM), on the following terms:

Amount of loan: $512.9 million.
Maturity: 10 years.

Current weighted average interest rate:

6.59% p.a. A portion of the loan requires interest at a fixed rate and a portion of the loan requires interest at a floating rate. The floating rate is capped so that the maximum interest rate payable during the loan term on the full amount of the loan may not exceed 7.79% p.a.

Amortization: The loan requires payments of principal and interest on the basis of a 30 year direct reduction basis.
Prepayment: The fixed rate portion of the loan may be prepaid subject to standard FNM prepayment terms; in addition, any or all of the floating rate portion of the loan may be prepaid at 101% of par any time after one year; and, subject to certain conditions, collateral properties may be released from the mortgage lien as the loan is prepaid.

This mortgage loan is secured by first liens on 28 senior living properties (5,618 living units) located in 16 States: Maryland (4 properties), Virginia (4), California (3), Texas (3), Arizona (2), Florida (2), Delaware (1), Georgia (1), Indiana (1), Kansas (1), Kentucky (1), Massachusetts (1), North Carolina (1), New Mexico (1), Ohio (1) and Wisconsin (1)1. After completion of this transaction, SNH will continue to own 221 senior living communities (25,840 living units), including 165 senior living communities (18,801 living units) which are not encumbered by secured mortgage debt. In addition, SNH will continue to own two rehabilitation hospitals, 10 wellness centers and 40 medical office buildings that have an aggregate historical cost of approximately $648.2 million and only four of these properties are encumbered by mortgages totaling approximately $25.4 million.

FNM has advised SNH that the mortgage loan announced today is one of the largest mortgages secured by senior living properties ever provided by FNM. CITIBANK originated this loan and assisted SNH and FNM in the structuring of this transaction.

All of the mortgaged properties which secure this FNM loan are leased by SNH to Five Star Quality Care, Inc. (NYSE Amex: FVE). Prior to this transaction, SNH leased 183 properties to FVE (181 senior living communities and two rehabilitation hospitals) under four combination leases. As a result of this transaction, the leases between SNH and FVE were reconfigured so that there are now still four combination leases, but one lease contains only those properties which are mortgaged to FNM. In connection with this transaction: (a) certain personal property located at the FNM mortgaged properties (which has a historical cost of approximately $17.0 million and a current net book value of approximately $8.7 million) which was owned by FVE was acquired by SNH and pledged to FNM; (b) certain FVE owned personal property was pledged to secure the FNM loan; (c) FVE has agreed to undertake certain reporting and other operating obligations required by FNM; and (d) FVE has issued 3,200,000 FVE common shares to SNH (approx. 9% of the total FVE basic common shares outstanding after this issuance). To compensate FVE for the purchase of its personal property, for the pledge of its assets, for the services and obligations which FVE has assumed under the FNM loan documents and for the issuance of its shares to SNH, SNH and FVE have agreed that: (i) the combined historical rent payable by FVE to SNH under the reconfigured lease which includes the two rehabilitation hospitals will be reduced by $2 million/year; and (ii) SNH has paid FVE $18.6 million and has agreed to reimburse FVE for its out of pocket costs in connection with concluding this transaction.

SNH and FVE determined to include a sale of FVE shares to SNH in this transaction to, in part, compensate FVE for a certain intangible loss of liquidity resulting from FVE's pledge of certain assets to FNM and, in part, to permit SNH to participate as a shareholder in the benefits which FVE receives as a result of this agreement.

The terms of the agreement between SNH and FVE were negotiated by Special Committees of the Boards of SNH and FVE composed only of SNH Trustees and FVE Directors who are not also Trustees/ Directors of the other company, and each Committee was represented by separate counsel.

SNH intends to use the proceeds of this mortgage financing to repay amounts outstanding under its revolving credit facility, to fund investments, including possibly accelerating the previously announced pending purchases of certain medical office buildings from HRPT Properties Trust (NYSE: HRP), and for general business purposes.

SNH is a real estate investment trust headquartered in Newton, MA which owns independent and assisted living communities, hospitals, nursing homes, medical office buildings, medical clinics and biotech research properties, located throughout the United States.
