April 13, 2017 | by James Sprow | Blue Vault
As previously reported on April 6, 2017, CNL Lifestyle Properties, Inc., consummated the sale of its remaining real estate properties to EPR Properties, a Maryland real estate investment trust (“EPR”), and Ski Resort Holdings LLC, a Delaware limited liability company owned by funds affiliated with Och-Ziff Real Estate. The sale closed on April 6, 2017, and the Company received aggregate consideration of approximately $153.2 million in cash (net of prorations and other adjustments) and 8,851,264 common shares of beneficial interest of EPR.
On April 11, 2017, the Company’s board of directors authorized an interim distribution to the stockholders of record of the Company as of March 31, 2017 of the share consideration, based on a ratio of 2.7219 shares of EPR common stock for each 100 shares of Company common stock, and cash in the amount of $0.10 per share of Company common stock. The Board anticipates that the interim distribution will occur on or around April 20, 2017.
EPR Properties common stock closed on the NYSE at $75.67 per share on April 11, 2017, which would make the share consideration based on a ratio of 2.7219 shares per 100 shares of CNL Lifestyle Properties equal an estimated value of $2.06. Together with the cash of $0.10 per share the interim distribution has an estimated value of approximately $2.16 per share.

I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture. For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments. Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients.
