(NYSE:OHI) (the "Company" or “Omega”) today announced that it has exercised its option to acquire 63 additional long-term care facilities from affiliates of CapitalSource Inc. (“CapitalSource”). The aggregate consideration to be paid at the closing under the option agreement (the “Option Closing”), which is expected to occur in June 2010, is approximately $295 million, consisting of approximately: (i) $34 million in cash to sellers, and (ii) repayment of $261 million of debt at closing.

The purchase price payable at each such closing is also subject to certain adjustments, including but not limited to a dollar-for-dollar increase or decrease of the consideration to the extent the assumed debt is less than or greater than the amount set forth in the purchase agreement, and an upward or downward adjustment to prorate certain items of accrued and prepaid income and expense of the CapitalSource subsidiaries to be acquired. The consummation of the Option Closing and the remaining closing under the purchase agreement with CapitalSource are subject to customary closing conditions, and there can be no assurance as to when or whether such transactions will be consummated.
