Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LOS ANGELES - Sep 19, 2017 - Apex Issuances, the premier issuer of American real estate holding companies at the Israeli stock market, the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE), recently completed a successful bond issuance for Chosen Healthcare, a real estate company. Chosen Healthcare has 22 nursing facilities centers and hospitals in the United States in Indiana, Iowa and Texas. A large proportion of the tenants in these facilities receive United States federal government aid through Medicare and Medicaid. It’s the second successful issuance for Apex at the senior citizen sector after issuing Strawberry Fields LLC $100 million last year.
Chosen Healthcare raised $135 million at the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange through Apex Issuances bond issuance program to repay an $86 million U.S. bank loan and to provide an $11 million loan to the owners of the company. The proceeds and the company’s regular cash flow will also be used to pay a regular $3 to $4 million in dividends. The controlling shareholders have also given the U.S. bank $18 million in personal guarantee, which the company plans to use proceeds to eliminate this guarantee.
Chosen Healthcare raised straight bonds, which has a BBB rating. The lien on the bonds is a senior lien through a mortgage on income-producing properties with $220 million in value. The bonds have a four-year duration, and the interest rate was set in an auction. The principal of the bonds is to be repaid in three equal payments from 2021 to 2023 with interest paid in 2018 and 2023.
The success of Chosen Healthcare’s bond issuance and the over demand for the issuance proved one more time the growing importance of the Israeli bond market as a viable and exciting alternative financing for American real estate companies.
