Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 30, 2015
Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, is pleased to announce the successful closing of the $40,430,000 sale of Coventry Village (the Community) on behalf of Harris Webber, Ltd., a regional senior housing operator.
Coventry Village is a 176-unit senior housing community offering independent living, assisted living, and memory care services in Madison, WI. In addition, there are 46 owner-occupied condominiums with an opportunity to build an additional 11 units. Coventry Village was developed by Harris Webber, Ltd., based in Libertyville, Illinois.
Harris Webber, Principal of Harris Webber, Ltd., stated, "The Ziegler team did much more than just find a buyer for our business, they provided a package of investment banking advice that resulted in a smooth process, transition of the business as well as generating a value that exceeded my expectations."
Built from 1999 to 2004, the Community represents one of the newer, age-restricted, senior living developments in Wisconsin. Positioned as a high-end senior living alternative, the Community was built to the highest construction standards, with large unit sizes and incorporates superior finishes and amenities. Occupancy was stabilized and the Community had experienced strong cash flow margins over the previous three fiscal years. With a strong reputation and expansion potential, the Community represented a unique opportunity to acquire an established, high-end senior living community in Wisconsin.
The Ziegler Corporate Finance team worked closely with the senior management team to market the community to logical buyers assist with negotiating their terms, coordinate due diligence and bring the transaction to a successful closing. Senior Housing Properties Trust purchased the Community and Five Star Quality Care will operate.
Founded in 1976, Harris Webber, Ltd. specializes in the development of quality retirement communities with a focus on comfort, convenience, and freedom from worry for the individuals who make those communities their home. Coventry's design approach emphasizes a non-institutional setting where an atmosphere of home and community always come shining through.
“It was a pleasure representing Harris Webber, Ltd. in this transaction. The owner was very pleased with the outcome and the very high per-unit value achieved by our time tested process,” commented Bill Mulligan, Managing Director and Head of Corporate Finance Senior Living & Post-Acute Care.
