Irvine-based Griffin-American Healthcare REIT III is rapidly expanding its portfolio. The firm, which completed the first phase of its IPO in February, made $350 million in acquisitions during the first quarter and has another $500 million in the pipeline.
These acquisitions more than doubled the Griffin’s portfolio. Funding for the purchases largely came from the IPO, which raised nearly $1.85 billion.
Net operating income for the period came in at $9.1 million, up from $2.2 million in the fourth quarter. Funds from operations were at a loss of $3.4 million, but that was less than the negative $5.2 million in the fourth quarter. Additionally, the firm’s portfolio was just under 96 percent leased.
The firm’s portfolio currently has 47 medical-office assets valued at about $688 million. Since the end of the first quarter on March 31, the firm has acquired five medical-office facilities in Georgia, Maryland and Pennsylvania, for $56.5 million.
