Following the completion of our merger with Care Capital Properties, Inc., we expect to continue to grow our investment portfolio while diversifying our portfolio by tenant, asset class and geography within the healthcare sector. We plan to achieve these objectives primarily through making investments directly or indirectly in healthcare real estate. We may also achieve our objective of diversifying our portfolio by tenant and asset class through select asset sales and other arrangements with Genesis and other tenants. We have entered into memoranda of understanding with Genesis to market for sale 35 skilled nursing facilities (the “MOU Disposition Facilities”), and as of November 1, 2017, have completed the sale of four MOU Disposition Facilities and have entered into a definitive agreement to sell an additional 20 MOU Disposition Facilities, which we expect to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2017. We expect the remaining MOU Disposition Facilities to be sold by the end of the first quarter of 2018 though there can be no assurance that the sales will be completed in that timeframe, if at all. We have also begun the process of marketing for sale up to all of the remaining 43 facilities leased to Genesis, with sales expected to occur in 2018. We believe that a significant reduction in our facilities leased to Genesis will ultimately improve our portfolio by reducing our exposure from the remaining skilled nursing operator in our portfolio that does not fit our preferred profile to an immaterial level.

We expect to continue to grow our portfolio through the acquisition of assisted living, independent living and memory care communities in the United States and Canada and through the acquisition of Skilled Nursing/Transitional Care and behavioral health facilities in the United States. We have and will continue to opportunistically acquire other types of healthcare real estate, originate financing secured directly or indirectly by healthcare facilities and invest in the development of Senior Housing communities and Skilled Nursing/Transitional Care facilities. We also expect to expand our portfolio through the development of purpose-built healthcare facilities through pipeline agreements and other arrangements with select developers. We further expect to work with existing operators to identify strategic development opportunities. These opportunities may involve replacing, renovating or expanding facilities in our portfolio that may have become less competitive and new development opportunities that present attractive risk-adjusted returns. In addition to pursuing acquisitions with triple-net leases, we expect to continue to pursue other forms of investment, including investments in Senior Housing - Managed properties, mezzanine and secured debt investments, and joint ventures for Senior Housing communities and Skilled Nursing/Transitional Care facilities.

With respect to our debt and preferred equity investments, in general, we originate loans and make preferred equity investments when an attractive investment opportunity is presented and either (a) the property is in or near the development phase or (b) the development of the property is completed but the operations of the facility are not yet stabilized. A key component of our strategy related to loan originations and preferred equity investments is our having the option to purchase the underlying real estate that is owned by our borrowers (and that directly or indirectly secures our loan investments) or by the entity in which we have an investment. These options become exercisable upon the occurrence of various criteria, such as the passage of time or the achievement of certain operating goals, and the method to determine the purchase price upon exercise of the option is set in advance based on the same valuation methods we use to value our investments in healthcare real estate. This strategy allows us to diversify our revenue streams and build relationships with operators and developers, and provides us with the option to add new properties to our existing real estate portfolio if we determine that those properties enhance our investment portfolio and stockholder value at the time the options are exercisable.
