Chartwell Agrees to Sell a Portfolio of Non-Core Properties in Ontario

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/11/14 -- Chartwell Retirement Residences (TSX: CSH.UN) ("Chartwell") announced today that it has entered into a binding agreement to sell a portfolio of 14 retirement residences comprised of 945 suites located in Ontario (collectively, the "Portfolio") to a private purchaser.

The sale price for the Portfolio is $65.95 million and will be partially settled through the purchaser's assumption of mortgages with an outstanding balance on the date of this press release of approximately $19.52 million. The mortgage debt carries a weighted average interest rate of 5.64% per annum and has a weighted average term to maturity of approximately three years. Chartwell will provide the purchaser with vendor take-back mortgages ("VTBs") secured by charges against certain properties in the Portfolio in the amount of $6.0 million, bearing interest at 8% per annum and having a three year term to maturity. The VTBs will be cross-collateralized and cross-defaulted and will be secured by the corporate guarantee of the purchaser. The balance of the purchase price, subject to customary closing adjustments, will be paid in cash. The purchaser has completed its due diligence and the closing of the transaction, subject to limited conditions, is expected in the second quarter of 2014.

"The sale of this Portfolio is in line with our strategy to divest assets that we consider non-core," commented Brent Binions, Chartwell's President and CEO. "We would like to extend our appreciation to the staff of these properties for their commitment to offering the best care and services possible. We believe the purchaser will continue to provide quality care and service to the residents of the Portfolio. We will continue to work with the purchaser to minimize the impact of the transition on residents and staff."
