Lument Securities Advises on Sale of Skilled Nursing Facility in Tennessee

New York, NY – Lument Securities recently advised Summit View of Rocky Top LLC, on its sale to Core LTC Services, a private long-term care operator based in Tennessee. Managing Director and Head of M&A Laca Wong-Hammond and Senior Associate Isabel Carta led the transaction for Lument Securities.

“This transaction is another great example of the power of Lument – a one-stop capital solutions provider,” said Wong-Hammond. “Through seamless coordination of various parties with sometimes conflicting objectives, we were able to navigate transaction nuances and successfully execute in a volatile capital environment.”

Summit View of Rocky Top is a 117-bed skilled nursing facility that offers a broad range of services, including short-term rehabilitation and traditional nursing care, along with an 18-bed behavioral health hospital. It is located in Rocky Top, Tennessee, approximately 25 miles away from Knoxville.

In recent years, Summit View experienced financial and operational difficulties as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the lingering effects. Given the continued pressures of maintaining debt service and other loan obligations that became increasingly burdensome, the borrower strategized with Lument Securities and Lument’s asset management team to find an outcome where all sides would benefit.

Lument Securities orchestrated a competitive marketing process that generated significant interest. To accelerate sustainability, Lument suggested an interim manager change with a group that would fund working capital, providing financial relief for the borrower.

Ultimately, Lument Securities closed the sale on May 2, 2024, with a structure that included a loan assumption. Terms of the sale were not disclosed. Lument Securities served as exclusive financial advisor to Summit View of Rocky Top in connection with the transaction.

As a result of the successful sale, Summit View will continue to operate, serving as an important source of care and housing to the aging population in Rocky Top.
