ZT Corporate Announces Successful Institutional Exit of Healthcare Real Estate

ZT Corporate, a private equity firm that specializes in healthcare and automotive investments, today announced that it has successfully exited its remaining healthcare real estate assets for its portfolio entity, Altus Community Healthcare, to a prominent Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT). Altus is the largest privately held emergency rooms operator in the U.S. This sell-leaseback transaction encompasses seven acute-care facilities in Texas.

The transaction involves Altus selling its emergency room and micro-hospital facilities and simultaneously leasing them back for a long-term period. This partnership allows Altus to unlock the equity tied up in its real estate assets and de-levering its balance sheet by paying off debt while continuing to operate and provide top-tier healthcare services without interruption.

The infusion of capital will also accelerate Altus’ plans for modernizing infrastructure and expanding its services to the community, further solidifying its position as a leader in healthcare delivery.

Taseer Badar, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ZT Corporate, said, “Our strength is in managing healthcare operations at a world class level. This real estate divestiture streamlines our focus to areas where we know we are successful. We are in growth mode and by optimizing our balance sheet, we are in a more agile position to capitalize on the exciting opportunities we see in the current market environment.”

Sheheryar Shah, Chief Investment Officer of ZT Corporate, said, “This strategic partnership is a milestone in our mission to enhance healthcare accessibility and innovation.”

Ali Tariq, Managing Director of Investments of ZT Corporate, said, “By leveraging the financial flexibility gained through this transaction, we are better positioned to invest in cutting-edge technologies and expand our services, ultimately delivering superior care to our patients.”

The transaction was facilitated with the legal counsel of Chamberlain, Hrdlicka, White, Williams & Aughtry, P.C., Pasha Law and Anwar-i-Qadeer & Associates, P.C. representing Altus.
