BALA CYNWYD, Pa., June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of American Realty Capital Healthcare Trust, Inc. ("American Realty" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: HCT) relating to the proposed acquisition by Ventas, Inc. ("Ventas").

Under the terms of the transaction, American Realty shareholders will receive only $11.33 in cash or 0.1688 of a share of Ventas common shares for each share of American Realty stock they own. The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of American Realty for not acting in the Company's shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process.

Further, the investigation seeks to determine if the transaction undervalues American Realty given that the American Realty portfolio consists of more than 4 million square feet of medical office space across 78 properties, which is 97% rented. In addition, American Realty also has a portfolio of 42 senior housing properties, including 29 non-triple net senior communities that are 94% occupied.
