Press Release



TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2023 /CNW/ – Northwest Healthcare Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (the ‘REIT‘ or ‘Northwest‘) (TSX: NWH.UN) is pleased to announce that holders (the ‘Debentureholders‘) of its ‘Series G’ Convertible Unsecured Subordinated Debentures due December 31, 2023 (TSX: NWH.DB.G) (the ‘Debentures‘) passed an extraordinary resolution approving certain amendments to the Debentures previously announced (the ‘Amendments‘) at a meeting of Debentureholders held today (the ‘Meeting‘).


The adoption of the Amendments was overwhelmingly supported by the Debentureholders who voted by proxy or in person at the Meeting, with the adoption being approved by approximately 89.24% of the principal amount of the Debentures voted (either in person at the Meeting or by proxy).


Craig Mitchell, Northwest’s CEO, commented, ‘Management continues to take steps to renegotiate and extend its near-term debt maturities. In addition to several previously announced credit facility and term loan extensions that we have successfully completed in the past few weeks, Debentureholders today voted to extend the maturity of the Series G debentures from December 2023 to March 2025.’


‘Northwest has eliminated all 2023 debt maturities, and over 60% of its 2024 debt maturities, giving the REIT added financial flexibility. We would like to thank our Debentureholders for their support, as we continue to work to take steps to strengthen our capital structure and set up the REIT for future growth.’


It is anticipated that the effective date of the Amendments will be November 27, 2023. The seventh supplemental trust indenture entered into in respect of the Amendments will be available on the REIT’s SEDAR+ profile at


Debentureholders that delivered and did not withdraw a valid Form of Proxy or Voting Instruction Form with respect to the Amendments in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the management information circular of the REIT sent to Debentureholders in connection with the Meeting (the ‘Circular‘), will receive a cash consent fee, without interest, of $20 per $1,000 principal amount of Debentures held by such Debentureholders as of the record date, being October 13, 2023, (the ‘Consent Fee‘), subject to satisfaction of certain other conditions required for the payment of the Consent Fee set out in the Circular.
