NEW YORK, June 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthcare Trust, Inc. ("HTI" or the "Company"), a publicly registered, non-traded real estate investment trust, announced today that its Board of Directors has established a special strategic review committee of independent directors to evaluate various options in connection with the Company's previously announced strategic review analysis. The special strategic review committee has retained Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC and KeyBanc Capital Markets as financial advisors, with Morgan Stanley as lead advisor.
The Company previously announced that the Board of Directors has retained Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP as special legal counsel to assist in connection with the strategic review process.
Due to the strategic review process, the Board has also amended the Company's share repurchase program that became effective February 28, 2016. The program is being amended to eliminate the first and second semester repurchase provisions. Previously, stockholders could request repurchases of the Company's common stock on a semiannual basis (each six-month period ending June 30 or December 31, a "fiscal semester"). With the amendment, stockholders can now submit repurchase requests through December 31, 2016. Repurchases will continue to be limited to a maximum of 5% of the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the previous fiscal year. Payment is expected to be made in January 2017 subject to the terms of the program, including that the Company may decide to further amend, suspend, or terminate the program.
No decision has been made by the Company to enter into any transaction at this time, and there are no assurances that the consideration of strategic alternatives will result in any transaction. HTI does not intend to comment on or disclose developments regarding the strategic review process unless it deems further disclosure is appropriate or required.
