Diversified Healthcare Trust Closes $120 Million Mortgage Loan

Diversified Healthcare Trust (Nasdaq: DHC) today announced that it closed a $120 million mortgage loan secured by eight properties within DHC’s Medical Office and Life Science Portfolio, located in seven states and consisting of approximately 725,000 square feet. As of March 31, 2024, the weighted average remaining lease term for these properties was 5.4 years and the occupancy rate was 93%. The non-recourse loan has an implied capitalization rate of 7.2% based on the aggregate appraised value for the collateral properties and a loan to value ratio of approximately 50%.

The loan is an interest only 10-year mortgage with a 6.864% all-in fixed interest rate. DHC intends to use approximately 50% of the loan proceeds to redeem a portion of its outstanding 9.750% senior notes due 2025. DHC will use the remainder of the loan proceeds to fund capital investments and improve liquidity.

Matt Brown, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer of DHC, made the following statement.

“Today’s announced financing is the first step in executing on our broader financing strategy to lower financing costs, improve weighted average remaining debt term and enhance our liquidity profile.”

The lenders were Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, Bank of Montreal and UBS AG.
