Update on pipeline acquisitions and fundraising |

30 Nov 2018

On 24 October 2018, the Board of Impact Healthcare REIT plc (ticker: IHR) announced that it was in advanced negotiations to acquire an identified pipeline of attractive investment opportunities including a portfolio of UK care homes with over 2,500 beds (the “Target Portfolio”).

Further to this announcement, the Company has decided not to exchange contracts on the acquisition of the Target Portfolio during 2018 and, therefore, will not proceed with an equity fundraising prior to the year-end.

The Company remains in discussions with the vendors of the Target Portfolio and of other attractive investment opportunities and expects to raise equity capital in 2019. These potential investments are in line with the Company’s investment criteria and return profile and are expected to deliver further value for its shareholders. The Company and its Investment Adviser will continue to exercise robust capital discipline to deliver value at the point of acquisition or investment.

The Company will make further announcements in due course.
