Nautic Partners Exits, HealthSouth Buys In

Nautic Partners made a grand exit last week as it sold Reliant Hospital Partners, LLC to HealthSouth Corporation (NYSE: HLS) for $730 million. Reliant operates a portfolio of 11 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals in Texas, Massachusetts and Ohio, plus three inpatient satellite locations in Massachusetts, for a total of 902 beds. All of the hospitals are leased. Operating entities at seven of the hospitals include minority limited partners whose interest represents less than 10% of the equity of the combined Reliant operating entities. HealthSouth will assume the lease obligations of all the acquired hospitals. Based on the structure of the transaction, it expects to realize a tax benefit with and estimate net present value of approximately $125 million to $150 million.
