CHICAGO (PRWEB) November 12, 2020
Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, is pleased to announce its role as exclusive capital structuring advisor in a $42,600,000 debt placement (the “Financing”) on behalf of Radiant Senior Living (Radiant) to finance the acquisition of a portfolio of three senior housing communities located in Washington and Montana (the “Portfolio”). Two of the communities are located in Washington near Seattle, while the third is located in Bozeman, Montana.
“We are thrilled to have been able to secure the debt needed for Radiant to complete this acquisition in a timely manner during a difficult lending period in the market,” stated Eric Johnson, Senior Vice President in Ziegler’s Senior Housing & Care Finance practice, who arranged and negotiated the transaction.
The Financing consisted of a combination of senior and mezzanine debt, with Congressional Bank providing the senior debt and a national senior housing fund providing the mezzanine debt.
“We were pleased to have been selected to provide the senior debt for this transaction. We have been looking for the right opportunity to provide financing for Radiant, a best-in-class owner/operator. We are extremely thankful to the Ziegler team for showing us the transaction and for facilitating such a smooth process,” said Amy Heller, President of Healthcare Lending at Congressional.
Radiant acquired the Portfolio from a publicly traded healthcare REIT as part of their expansion efforts across the country. The Portfolio consists of 36 independent living units and 204 assisted living units. The properties enjoy in-place, stabilized cash flow and provide opportunity for additional upside through operational efficiencies due to scale. Post-acquisition, Radiant’s portfolio totals 18 communities spanning across six states in the Pacific Northwest.
