Baron Funds Comments on Brookdale Senior Living - May 05, 2014

Shares of Brookdale Senior Living, Inc. (BKD), the nation's largest senior housing operator, rose 23% in the quarter. Business trends continue to improve, and we like the company's move to improve brand recognition and advertise their facilities. Brookdale announced they are making a significant acquisition of competitor Emeritus Corp. By the way, we are large shareholders of Emeritus as well, and its stock rose 45% in the quarter, so a win-win for us. We think the deal will be highly accretive, will help establish Brookdale as the clear industry leader, and will create a path to unlock the value of the company's considerable real estate assets.

Third Avenue Management Comments on Brookdale Senior Living - Sep 18, 2013



Brookdale Senior Living Brookdale (BKD) is the largest operator of senior housing assets in the United States, with approximately 549 centers and 48,000 units. Brookdale provides room, board and hospitality services to the elderly, primarily 80 years old and older, who are generally in good health but require a base level of healthcare, with a primary focus on private pay

(80%).The Fund established its position in Brookdale at a price that represented a significant discount to our conservative estimate of NAV. Over the long term, demographics are favorable for senior housing. Brookdale's portfolio is currently leased at 88%, or 6% below pre-crisis peak. Pent-up demand is likely to drive occupancy and lead to outsized NAV growth as seniors often use proceeds from home sales to move-in and pay rent. Additionally, at 25,000 units, Brookdale's owned assets represent one of the largest and most coveted portfolios of high-quality private-pay senior housing properties and is likely to fetch significant interest from strategic and financial buyers.

Compare:SRZ, CSU, EXETF, NHC, KND » details
Traded in other countries:B7S.Germany,
Brookdale Senior Living Inc was formed as a Delaware corporation in June 2005. The Company operates as an operator of senior living communities. It operates in six business segments: retirement centers; assisted living; CCRCs rental; CCRCs entry fee; Brookdale Ancillary Services and management services. Its retirement center communities are primarily designed for middle to upper income seniors generally age 75 and older who desire an upscale residential environment providing the highest quality of service. Its assisted living communities offer housing and 24-hour assistance with ADLs to mid-acuity frail and elderly residents. The assisted living communities include both freestanding, multi-story communities with more than 50 beds and smaller, freestanding single story communities with less than 50 beds. The CCRCs are large communities that offer a variety of living arrangements and services to accommodate all levels of physical ability and health. The communities in its CCRCs Entry Fee segment are similar to those in its CCRCs Rental segment but allow for residents in the independent living apartment units to pay a one-time upfront entrance fee. The Companys Brookdale Ancillary Services segment includes the outpatient therapy, home health and hospice services provided to residents of many of its communities, to other senior living communities that they do not own or operate and to seniors living outside of its communities. The Brookdale Ancillary Services segment does not include the therapy services provided in its skilled nursing units, which are included in the CCRCs - Rental and CCRCs - Entry Fee segments. The Company operates certain of its communities pursuant to management agreements. As of December 31, 2013, the Company managed a total of 95 communities with a total of 17,422 units on behalf of third parties or joint ventures in which they have an ownership interest. There are a total of 51 retirement centers, 32 assisted living communities and 12 CCRC communities in its Management Services segment. The Companys competitors includes Emeritus Corporation, Capital Senior Living Corporation, Sunrise Senior Living, LLC, Life Care Services, LLC and Atria Senior Living Group, as well as a large number of not-for-profit entities.
