WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LTC Properties, Inc. (NYSE:LTC), a real estate investment trust that
primarily invests in seniors housing and health care properties,
announced today it has acquired the Village at Athens, a 70-unit
assisted living and memory care community near Athens, GA for $14.3

The newly constructed community received its certificate of occupancy in
May 2016 and has been added to an existing master lease with an
affiliate of Thrive Senior Living (“Thrive”) at an incremental initial
cash yield of 8%. The purpose-built, private-pay community has 90
licensed beds and is comprised of 50 assisted living units and 20
dedicated memory care units.

The Village at Athens expands LTC’s relationship with Thrive to three
communities. Two additional development projects are in the pipeline,
both expected to open by year’s end.

“Partnering with Thrive to invest in multiple communities underscores
our stated strategy of methodically establishing and growing
relationships with bourgeoning regional operators,” said Wendy Simpson,
LTC’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The addition of this newly
built and developed property enhances our portfolio’s overall quality by
reducing its average age while increasing investments held in
private-pay senior living communities. We are delighted to continue to
cultivate our partnership and contribute to Thrive’s long-term success.”
