Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

As previously disclosed, on April 9, 2021, we announced that we had agreed to amend our management arrangements with DHC for the senior living communities that we currently manage for DHC’s account. On June 9, 2021, we entered into an Amended and Restated Master Management Agreement with DHC, or the Master Management Agreement, pursuant to which we will continue to manage 120 senior living communities for DHC, substantially on the terms previously disclosed. Also as previously disclosed, we agreed to cooperate with DHC to transition an additional 108 senior living communities that we currently manage for DHC to other third party operators, which we expect to be completed before year end 2021. We will continue to manage these 108 senior living communities for DHC until they are transitioned to other third party operators pursuant to interim management agreements. The Master Management Agreement and interim management agreements amended and restated, and consolidated, our prior management agreements and omnibus agreement with DHC in their entirety. Also on June 9, 2021, we delivered to DHC a related Amended and Restated Guaranty Agreement, or the Guaranty, pursuant to which we will continue to guarantee the payment and performance of each of our applicable subsidiary’s obligations under the applicable management agreements.

 

In connection with these amendments to our management arrangements, we will cease to provide oversight of any major capital projects and repositionings at the senior living communities we continue to manage for DHC.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the Master Management Agreement and the Guaranty are not complete and are subject to and qualified in their entirety by reference to the copies of those agreements which are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.
