WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- LTC Properties, Inc. (NYS: LTC) (the "Company") announced today that it had purchased two parcels of land for a total of $3.1 million and entered into development commitments totaling $26.2 million.


The Company announced the details of the transactions as follows:

In December 2012, the Company purchased an 11.2 acre vacant parcel of land in Northern Kentucky (Cincinnati MSA) for $2.1 million. Simultaneous with the purchase, the Company added the land parcel to an existing master lease with affiliates of Carespring Health Care Management, LLC and made a development commitment to fund the construction of a 143-bed skilled nursing facility in an amount not to exceed $21.4 million. Rent at a rate based on a spread over treasury yields, but not less than 8.5%, will be calculated based on the land purchase price and construction costs funded plus 8.5% compounded on the land purchase price and each amount funded under the commitment. Payment of rent will begin on the earlier of the issuance of the certificate of occupancy or the 29th month following the land acquisition.

Also in December 2012, the Company purchased a 6 acre parcel of land in Frisco, Texas (Dallas MSA) for $1.0 million and entered into a lease and development commitment with affiliates of Mustang Creek Estates in an amount not to exceed $4.8 million for the construction of an 81-unit assisted living and memory care facility. Rent at the rate of 9.25% will be calculated based on the land purchase price and construction costs funded plus 9.0% compounded on the land purchase price and each amount funded under the commitment. Payment of rent will begin on the earlier of the issuance of the certificate of occupancy or the 15th month following the land acquisition. The lease has a 10-year initial term, two 5-year renewal options and annual escalations of 2.5%.
