Senior Housing Deal In Works

Senior Housing Deal In Works DALLAS, TX - Capital Senior Living Corporation, one of the country's largest operators of senior living communities, announced today that Midwest Portfolio Holdings II, LP, a joint venture in which it holds a 15% partnership interest, has entered into an agreement to sell three senior living communities to Health Care REIT, Inc. Upon closing the transaction, the Company will lease the communities from HCN. The Company currently manages the three communities in the joint venture under long-term management agreements.

"Similar to our first transaction with HCN, this transaction will also provide immediate benefits to our shareholders," commented Lawrence A. Cohen, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "In addition to a significant increase to our top-line revenue, the lease will be immediately accretive to cash flow and earnings. While we have been earning management fees on these communities since 2006, we will now be able to consolidate the results of operations and benefit fully from further improvement in occupancies and rental rates. These three communities are strategically located in the Midwest portion of the country, where nearly 50 percent of our operations are located. We are extremely pleased to enter into another transaction with Health Care REIT, Inc., a leading healthcare REIT that invests across the full spectrum of senior housing and health care real estate."

The three communities being leased have approximately 300 units and include 198 units of assisted living and 102 units of memory care, with resident capacity of nearly 350. At the end of 2009, financial occupancy at the combined communities was 90%. All three communities are located in Indiana.

The Company anticipates receiving proceeds from Midwest II of approximately $1.3 million and recognizing a pre-tax gain of $0.3 million on the transaction. The Company may receive additional proceeds after the joint venture settles its customary post-closing costs.

Fourth quarter 2009 annualized results of operations for the three communities resulted in approximately $11.7 million of revenue and $4.2 million of EBITDAR. The initial lease expense is approximately $3.0 million and is subject to conditional annual escalation provisions. The triple net operating lease has an initial term of fifteen years, with one fifteen-year renewal option. The Company expects to begin consolidating the revenues and expenses of the three communities on its income statement, along with the lease expense, in the second quarter of 2010, subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.

Capital Senior Living Corporation is one of the nation's largest operators of residential communities for senior adults.
