Item 8.01. Other Events
On March 8, 2021, a subsidiary of LTC Properties, Inc. (the “Company”) sent a notice of default to ABRI Health Services, LLC and Senior Care Centers, LLC (collectively, the “Lessee”) for non-payment of March 2021 rent and additional charges owed under the master lease. The current minimum monthly rent owed to the Company by the Lessee is $1.2 million. The Company has submitted draws under the Lessee’s letters of credit posted as security for the Lessee’s performance under the master lease, and will apply proceeds received to the Lessee’s obligations under the master lease and the Company’s damages. The Lessee operates 11 skilled nursing centers in Texas, including approximately 1,400 beds, for the Company.
The Company expects to transition the portfolio to Texas-based HMG Healthcare, LLC (“HMG”) by the end of the second quarter of 2021. HMG has been a partner of the Company since 2019, operating two properties for the Company, which has more than a decade-long relationship with HMG’s principals. Subsequent to the transition, HMG will operate 13 Texas properties for the Company. In total, excluding the 11 properties being transitioned, HMG currently operates 29 skilled nursing, independent living, and assisted living centers, primarily in Texas.
