Listing

ARC Healthcare believes the Listing will enable it to continue to execute its strategic plan and increase stockholder value by providing stockholders with an opportunity to participate in future appreciation through internal and external growth. Since commencing its initial public offering in February 2011, ARC Healthcare has built a portfolio of 141 high quality health care properties located across the United States and developed a strong balance sheet positioned for future growth. Additionally, ARC Healthcare believes the Listing will provide it with access to lower cost capital, which would help further drive ARC Healthcare's growth and create additional value for stockholders. 

Completion of the Listing is subject to final approval by NASDAQ. There can be no assurance that ARC Healthcare's shares of common stock will be listed on NASDAQ.

Tender Offer

ARC Healthcare also announced today that it intends to commence a tender offer (subject to all appropriate filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission) to purchase up to $150 million of its shares of common stock (the "Tender Offer"). ARC Healthcare believes the Tender Offer augments the options available to stockholders in connection with the Listing. In accordance with the terms of the Tender Offer, ARC Healthcare will offer to repurchase shares of its common stock at a purchase price of $11.00 per share. ARC Healthcare intends to fund the Tender Offer with cash on hand and funds available under ARC Healthcare's unsecured revolving credit facility. Assuming that trading of ARC Healthcare's common stock begins on April 7, 2014, the Tender Offer will also commence on April 7, 2014 and expire on May 5, 2014 (unless ARC Healthcare determines to extend the offer). The Tender Offer will be subject to certain conditions that will be more fully described in the Tender Offer materials, which will become available to stockholders promptly following commencement of the Tender Offer.

Distributions

ARC Healthcare intends to continue payment of monthly distributions at an annualized rate of $0.68 per share. Historically, ARC Healthcare calculated its monthly distribution based upon daily record and distribution declaration dates so that its stockholders would be entitled to be paid distributions beginning with the month in which their shares were purchased. ARC Healthcare anticipates that it will pay the March 2014 distribution by April 5, 2014 to stockholders of record at the close of business each day during the prior calendar month. 

Following the Listing, ARC Healthcare will begin paying distributions on the 15th day of each month to stockholders of record as of close of business on the 8th day of such month, commencing with a distribution payable on April 15, 2014 to stockholders of record on April 8, 2014. 

"We are very excited for ARC Healthcare to continue its evolution as it enters the next phase of growth as a NASDAQ listed company," stated Nicholas S. Schorsch, Executive Chairman of ARC Healthcare's Board of Directors. "Our focus on stockholder returns, quality investments and balance sheet flexibility will continue to guide our future strategies for growth."

Thomas P. D'Arcy, ARC Healthcare's Chief Executive Officer added, "It is a very exciting time for the ARC Healthcare team and we very much look forward to listing our company on NASDAQ. ARC Healthcare is exceptionally well-positioned to drive value in the next stage of our growth with a strong, balanced and diversified portfolio of healthcare assets, an investment grade quality balance sheet, a deep and experienced management team and a focus clearly on growth."
