Global Healthcare REIT Signs Three Long Term Leases to Increase Annual Rental Revenue by $646,000

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2015) - Global Healthcare REIT, Inc. (OTCQB: GBCS), a company that owns healthcare properties and leases them to senior care facility operators, has signed three long-term operating leases for its Greene Pointe, Providence and Warrenton facilities in Georgia, replacing existing leases which are set to expire on June 30, 2016.

All of the new leases will begin on July 1, 2016, with initial term of 10 years and a renewal option for an additional 10 years. The new operating leases for Green Pointe, Providence and Warrenton facilities will have an initial base rental of $40,000, $40,000, and $52,000 per month, respectively. In the aggregate, the lease payments will total $1.6 million annually, an annual increase of $646,000 from current base rent levels, and will be subject to standard annual escalators.

"These long-term leases to an experienced professional operator contain terms more reflective of the value of the properties and their cash flow generation capacity," noted Christopher Brogdon, CEO of Global Healthcare REIT. "We see similar opportunities with our other facilities that are currently under short-term leases."

Since the company began an acquisition program in 2013, it has purchased 11 senior healthcare facilities representing more than 1,000 beds. The company is under contract to purchase a new facility in South Carolina later this year.
