Physicians Realty Trust Announces Closing of the Landmark Portfolio Acquisition with a Total Investment of $750 Million

Company Release - 12/20/2021

14 Medical Office Facilities Acquired in 11 Metro Markets, Totaling over 1,400,000 Rentable Square Feet

Physicians Realty Trust (NYSE: DOC) (the “Company,” the “Trust,” “we,” “our” and “us”), a self-managed health care real estate investment trust, announced today that it closed the previously announced pending purchase of medical office facilities from Landmark Healthcare Facilities LLC (“Landmark”). The transaction included 14 Class-A medical office buildings located in eight states, comprising 1,434,672 square feet, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $750.0 million and an expected first-year unlevered cash yield of 4.9%.

Highlights include:

  • 14 medical office facilities totaling 1,434,672 rentable square feet and 95% leased
  • Each facility is located on the campus of a hospital or affiliated with a health system
  • 75% of aggregate leased space is leased to investment-grade health systems or their subsidiaries
  • First-year unlevered cash yield of the portfolio is expected to be 4.9%

John T. Thomas, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Trust, commented, “Landmark’s high-quality portfolio of medical office facilities is a significant expansion of DOC’s national medical real estate footprint. It’s also a testament to the long-standing relationship between DOC and Landmark’s leadership—a combination of cultures committed to developing and owning medical office facilities leased to the leading health care providers in the communities they serve. We are honored Landmark chose Physicians Realty Trust to hold ownership of these 14 mission-critical medical office buildings, establishing 10 new DOC health system relationships for future investment opportunities. Our team has worked closely with Landmark in each market over the past year to complete this partnership. We look forward to working with Landmark on future opportunities to develop medical office facilities and welcome them as a significant stakeholder in DOC as part of this transaction.”

One property subject to the Company’s previously announced transaction agreements will not be contributed to DOC, as the tenant health care system elected to exercise their Right of First Refusal. This asset, totaling 24,972 GLA, had been under contract for a purchase price of $14,250,000.
