Homburger advised Medical Properties Trust on the deal.
Aevis Victoria SA announced that it has successfully placed 10% of the share capital of its largest portfolio company Swiss Medical Network SA to Medical Properties Trust.
The transaction values SMN at CHF 1.7 bn (enterprise value), confirming the significant value creation achieved since its inception in 2002.
With its network and know-how, MPT will make an important contribution to the further development of SMN. The collaboration with MPT complements the successful partnership in place since 2019 at Infracore, in which AEVIS and MPT each hold 50% of the voting rights.
Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (MPT) is a different kind of real estate investment trust by design. MPT has created a unique niche in the largest and fastest growing segment of the U.S. economy. Unlike other real estate investment trusts – even those categorized as healthcare REITs – MPT focuses exclusively on providing capital to acute care facilities of all kinds through long-term, triple net leases. And, unlike other sources of capital, MPT provides 100 percent financing to reduce an organization’s overall cost of capital by unlocking the value of its real estate assets. By allowing healthcare operators to tap the value of their real estate and channel that capital into facility improvements, technology upgrades , staff additions and even new construction, MPT bridges the gap between the growing demand for high-quality healthcare and the ability to deliver it efficiently and cost effectively. In essence, MPT enables hospitals to focus on what they know best – operations and serving patients.
