Ventas Replaces its Expired Shelf Registration Statement Enabling Existing Unitholder Redemptions

October 30, 2019

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 30, 2019--

Ventas, Inc. (NYSE: VTR) (“Ventas” or the “Company”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) an automatic shelf registration statement on Form S-3, relating solely to the sale, from time to time, of up to 2,992,131 shares of common stock that may be issued by Ventas upon redemption of Class A Partnership Units (“Class A Units”) of NHP/PMB L.P., a subsidiary of Ventas, by minority unitholders of NHP/PMB L.P. The registration statement replaces an expired one previously filed by the Company for similar purposes.

The issuance of common stock under the registration statement will not increase or decrease the number of Ventas shares outstanding on a fully-diluted basis, nor will Ventas receive proceeds from such issuance. Under the terms of the partnership agreement for NHP/PMB L.P., each Class A Unit is redeemable, at the option of the unitholder, for shares of Ventas common stock based on a conversion formula set forth in the applicable partnership agreement. Ventas may also elect to redeem Class A Units for a cash amount based on the trading price of Ventas common stock rather than for shares of Ventas common stock, pursuant to the terms of the partnership agreement.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sales of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sales would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such jurisdiction.

The Company has filed a registration statement (which includes a prospectus) with the SEC for the offering to which this communication relates. Before you invest, you should read the prospectus in that registration statement and other documents that the Company has filed with the SEC, including any prospectus supplement, for more complete information about the Company and this offering. You may get these documents for free by visiting the SEC website at www.sec.gov. Alternatively, the Company will arrange to send you the prospectus and any accompanying prospectus supplement if you request it by contacting Juan Sanabria at (877) 4-VENTAS.
