Large Senior Care Provider’s Sale – For Lawyers and Finance Geeks Only!

Real Estate

Ventas, Inc. a publicly traded REIT (real estate investment trust)  bought Atria Senior Living, Inc. last month as reported here. No, not www.atriaseniorliving.com, the fifth largest assisted living provider in the U.S., which Ventas already bought in May of 2011. Ventas, bought the management team of Atria, from a private equity firm (Lazard Feres Real Estate Investors LLC). The real estate and working capital which most people think of as Atria Senior Living became Atria Senior Living Group, Inc. This is not a knock on any of these companies, but jut a humorous look at how many times a company could be “spun off” and how a “group” here or “inc.” there would confuse even the most discriminating reader.
