Mainstreet Property affiliate stages $110M IPO

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A local affiliate of Cicero-based Mainstreet Property Group LLC said Wednesday that it raised $110 million in an initial public offering.

HealthLease Properties Real Estate Investment Trust sold 11 million shares of stock at $10 each. The stock began trading Wednesday morning on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol HLP.UN. Shares were fetching $10.12 in early trading.

Mainstreet disclosed its intentions for the IPO  May 2.

The companies develop and operate senior health care centers. Mainstreet is rolling nine of its properties—and six more it plans to acquire in Canada—into HealthLease and will own 18 percent of that publicly traded company.

Zeke Turner, CEO of HealthLease and Mainstreet, said in a statement: “It is humbling to see the interest investors have expressed in this offering. We will work hard toward our goal of maximizing shareholder value.”

Turner founded Mainstreet in 2002. The company has ranked among the fastest-growing companies in the Indianapolis area in recent years. It had revenue of $9.6 million in 2010, up from $6.3 million in 2008.

Going public in Canada can be cheaper for small and mid-size companies because of fewer regulations. Initial public offerings by REITs have been particularly well received.

Mainstreet properties being rolled into HealthLease include facilities in Indianapolis, Alexandria, Marion, Valparaiso, Mishawaka and Wabash.

HealthLease plans to lease its senior-care centers to long-term operators that are responsible for all services to residents and maintenance of the buildings, which theoretically minimizes risk to investors.

Both HealthLease and Mainstreet will remain headquartered in central Indiana.

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
