COLUMBUS, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov 29, 2018–Lancaster Pollard Mortgage Company, LLC announced today it has facilitated a refinancing between Protective Life Insurance Company and Agemark Corporation, which is based in Berkeley, California, and owns and operates assisted living (AL) and memory care (MC) facilities throughout the West and Midwest. Two of Agemarkâ€™s eight Nebraska propertiesâ€”Countryhouse of Lincoln III, a 37-unit MC facility, and Countryhouse of Omaha, a 38-unit MC facilityâ€”were encumbered with traditional bank debt. The principals of Agemark aimed to refinance the two facilities with long-term, non-recourse debt.
â€śHaving longstanding relationships with both Protective Life and Agemark, we were pleased to help the two establish a new lending relationship,â€ť said Casey Moore, managing director of agency finance with Lancaster Pollard, a full-service financial institution for health care and senior living facilities. â€śThis will help Agemark grow its seniors housing business.â€ť
Based in Birmingham, Alabama, Protective Life Insurance Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Protective Life Corporation, which in turn is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dai-ichi Life Holdings, Inc., provides long-term first mortgage financing for various commercial real estate asset types. For this deal, the life insurance company execution was the ideal structure since it allowed Agemark to lock in the interest rate early in the underwriting process and extract equity from the facilities. Ultimately, Agemark secured a 10-year, fixed rate financing in a rising interest rate environment.
â€śThis was the first transaction between Protective Life and Agemark,â€ť Moore said. â€śThe relationship established through this deal will give Agemark additional options in financing structures for its facilities moving forward.â€ť
