Healthcare Realty Trust Incorporated (NYSE:HR) today announced that it has entered into a strategic joint venture (JV) relationship with KKR to jointly own and invest in quality medical outpatient buildings. Healthcare Realty expects to receive approximately $300 million in proceeds for the contribution of a seed portfolio to the JV and will partner with KKR to explore additional acquisitions, including the potential contribution of more Healthcare Realty properties to the JV.

Under the terms of the agreement, Healthcare Realty will contribute 12 of its existing properties to seed the JV at a value of $382.5 million, representing a cap rate of approximately 6.6%. KKR will make an equity contribution to the JV equal to 80% of the value of the properties. Healthcare Realty will retain a 20% interest and will manage the JV, as well as continue to oversee day-to-day operations and leasing of the properties. KKR has also committed up to $600 million to the JV to pursue additional acquisitions or contributions of high-quality stabilized assets that are a match for its long-term capital base.

“Healthcare Realty is pleased to announce the formation of a strategic relationship with KKR, a leading global investment firm,” stated Todd Meredith, President and CEO. “We look forward to collaborating with KKR to strategically invest in the medical outpatient sector. In the near term, our capital allocation priority is to repurchase stock on a leverage neutral basis. Looking ahead, we may contribute additional Healthcare Realty properties to the JV or pursue acquisitions, depending on market conditions.”

“Healthcare Realty is a leading owner and operator of medical outpatient buildings in the U.S. with a strong focus on quality properties and serving tenants through best-in-class management,” said Peter Sundheim, Managing Director at KKR. “This high-quality portfolio is a great match for our long-term capital. We look forward to collaborating on new investments at an opportune moment when the current deleveraging cycle is impacting all types of real estate, including in favored sectors with excellent long-term fundamentals and demand drivers.”

The 12 properties to be contributed to the joint venture are medical outpatient buildings in seven top markets located predominantly on or adjacent to leading hospital campuses. The properties comprise a total of 762,399 square feet and are 98% occupied. The contribution of the properties is expected to occur throughout May and June upon satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
