The asset class is typically less cyclical than other real estate classes, providing attractive risk-adjusted returns for investors. real estate characteristically long leases and low vacancy rate are a key attraction, providing investors with relatively secure income compared with other real estate sectors. While average lease term for core commercial real estate sectors is circa 6 years, healthcare assets typically have year leases. Furthermore, the average vacancy rate for healthcare real estate is only circa 2%. In addition, the sector stands to benefit from the long-term drivers of the healthcare industry. The healthcare expenditure is largely a mandatory, not discretionary spend, and demand for healthcare services continues to grow due to an ageing population, increased life expectancy and advances in medical technology, providing further opportunity in the sector. Unlike the US, UK and Europe, the healthcare real estate sector is widely unsecuritised in with only circa $1.4b securitised out of an estimated $80b of assets 8. There is increasing appetite for healthcare real estate sale and leaseback opportunities in. This brings an opportunity to secure quality assets from public or private operators with strong leases and yield. Investment Environment Highly un-securitised in : IPD REIT Index was only c.$1.4b FUM in Dec There is circa $78b of remaining assets un-securitised in

2 n Assets real estate assets are very diverse: examples include hospitals, specialist clinics, medical centres, diagnostic and pathology services and hospital service providers. Due to the lack of institutional developers in this sector, operators often develop their own facilities, and maintain this capital on their balance sheets. This starkly differs from the successful model employed in the US and UK, whereby operators seek real estate capital partners to provide and manage their facilities. Asset Class Tertiary Example Assets Hospitals: are privately owned and provide a range of services including acute care, rehabilitation and psychiatric. Public Hospitals: are operated by, or on behalf of, state and territory governments with funding assistance from the federal government. These facilities provide a range of general hospital services that include acute care, rehabilitation and psychiatric services. Public- Partnership (PPP) Hospitals: are public hospitals which are funded and operated through a partnership of government and one or more private sector companies. The services provided by these facilities are similar to those of public or private hospitals. Specialist Facility: provides specialist services such as psychiatric, mental, skin, and cancer treatments. Historic Returns The annual yield for the n healthcare real estate is between 7.5% and 10.5%, depending on the sub-sector. This suggests the spread between yields and the bond rate is circa bp, indicating a high margin compared to the rest of the world. Sector Returns (Annualised Return %, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years to Jun 13) 25% 20% 15% Sector Total Income Capital Return Return Return 1 year to Jun 13 Hospitals 12.3% 10.2% 2.1% Medical Centres 9.8% 8.9% 0.9% All RE 11.6% 9.5% 2.1% 3 year to Jun 13 Hospitals 10.8% 9.3% 1.5% Medical Centres 11% 8.9% 2.1% All RE 10.8% 9.2% 1.6% 5 year to Jun 13 Hospitals 11.4% 9.4% 2% Medical Centres 8.6% 8.7% -0.1% All RE 10.5% 9.1% 1.4% Over the last 5 years, hospitals has outperformed medical centres: the 5 year annualised returns to June 2013 are 11.4% and 8.6% for hospitals and medical centres respectively. In the year ending June 2013, hospitals returned 12.3%, outperforming medical centres which returned 9.8%. Total Return (Annualised Return %, quarterly periods, Jun 06 to Jun 13) Secondary Primary Ancillary Aged Care : include establishments that provide long-term nursing care to low and high care residents. These facilities are regulated and partly funded by government (up to circa 80%). Day Surgeries: that do not require an overnight hospital stay, and often include outsourced public services Diagnostic : such as imaging and pathology services Medical Centers Medical research and educational facilities Specialist laundries and hygiene services Medical Laboratories 10% 5% 0% -5% -10% Jun-06 Jun-07 Jun-08 Jun-09 Jun-10 Jun-11 Jun-12 Jun-13 All Property RE The healthcare real estate sector is less volatile relative to other sectors: the annualised average returns moved between 7 and 15% over the past 7 years, which is relatively steady compared to other real estate sectors, particularly considering this period included the 2008 financial crisis.

3 Average Annual Return n Insights and Research Relative Performance In FY2013, by delivering a total return of 11.6%, the n healthcare real estate sector outperformed the All (Composite) Index by 250bps. This comprised 9.4% of yield and 2.2% of capital growth. The closest real estate sectors are Office and Industrial, with annualised returns of 9.4% and 9.3%, respectively. Existing Funds The asset class is widely un-securitised. There are high barrier to entry as assets are considered illiquid, require a long term investment horizon, and high capital requirements for entry. However, a number of REITs already provide investors with the opportunity to access this sector in and New Zealand. Relative Performance (Average Annual Return %, for the year ending Jun 2013) 14% 12% 10% 8% 6% 4% 2% 0% -2% -4% 12% 10% 8% 6% 4% 2% 9.1% 9.4% 8.8% 9.3% 6.3% Capital Return Income Return Total Return Composite Retail Hotel Office Industrial 11.6% 0% 0% 2% 4% 6% 8% 10% 12% Annual Volatility The healthcare real estate sector has a low correlation with other real estate sectors, making it a desirable addition to a diversified real estate portfolio. Indeed, while the health sector secured positive returns of more than 5% throughout the GFC period, total real estate returns plunged to negative values in the same period. The performance data of real estate sectors in over the past 7 years show that healthcare real estate assets deliver the lowest risk and highest return when compared to other real estate sectors. Average annualised return and annual volatility for healthcare has been 11.6% and 2%, respectively. This positions healthcare real estate sector as the most attractive sector for investment.

The Trust owned the freehold title to 29 of Japara s 35 aged care facilities At Japara s IPO, the company owned $781.2m in assets.

4 n Insights and Research Industry Demand Drivers The healthcare real estate performance is driven mainly by long-term demand drivers in the healthcare industry, and the fact that health expenditure is largely a mandatory, nondiscretionary spend. In other words, the economy is not the key demand driver for the healthcare sector. This is different from other sectors such as Retail, Industrial, Office and Hotel, which are sensitive to consumer or business sentiments, industrial production and retail demands. Therefore, healthcare real estate is classified as a non-cyclical and defensive sector. The size of the broader health sector in is about 9.3% of GDP at $130.3b, and the level of the health care expenditure has grown at 5.3% p.a. on a compounding basis over the last 10 years. The key industry demand drivers for the health sector is a growing and ageing population, and advancements in medical technology. Key Risks Investors have exposure to two general types of risks; real estate specific risks, and industry specific risks. specific risks Operator lease risk: risk of tenant default or non-renewal of any of the leases is significant as generally the tenant is one operator. The operators are sophisticated tenants and not easily replaced. Changes in federal and state government policy may impact the n health sector, and the ability of healthcare tenants to pay rent. However, the sector has increased its focus on private sector funding. This mitigates the risk of public sector funding withdrawals significantly. Industry specific risks The level of competition between hospital operators and other service providers, and the ability of hospital operators to maintain appropriate levels of cost control may impact the performance of operators generally. Growing population: by 2030, s population will have expanded by 27%, meaning another 6.2 million people will live in. According to the Council of, this increase means that an extra 125,000 retirement facilities and 24,000 more hospital beds will be needed. Ageing population: The n population aged 65 years and above will grow by circa 70% over the next 15 years. As ages, demand for healthcare services will increase. According to the n Bureau of Statistics (ABS), persons 65 years of age and older spend 4 times more on healthcare than the overall mean. Government legislation requires operators to be licensed. If a hospital s operating license were revoked, the hospital would not be permitted to continue operating. The majority of private hospital revenue is derived from health funds. The contractual terms negotiated with health funds will impact the profitability of the hospital operators, including the operators ability to meet future cost increases within the business. Advancements in medical technology: recent decades have brought about major advances in medical technology. This is considered a significant driver of increased healthcare expenditure as it means the range of conditions that can be treated will increase. Furthermore, the age range of patients who can be treated will also increase.

5 n Recent Transactions A number of recent transactions indicate that institutional investor interest in the sector is increasing: Regis (September 2014, prospective IPO) As the second-biggest aged care operator in, and riding off Japara s recent IPO success, Regis is raising $485m from its IPO at a final price of $3.65 per share.
