recent discussions with the Servicer Capita, this information is still expected
As highlighted in previous press releases (with the latest one published on 13
September 2012), Fitch expects to resolve the RWN once it has received more
material information later in Q4, most notably (i) a detailed 12-month operating
performance review of HC-One, (ii) details of the state of repair of the care
homes (with information on catch-up capex and use of the withheld funds) and
(iii) a presentation of HC-One 3-year business plan.
Titan Europe 2007-1 (NHP) is a securitisation of 294 nursing homes and three
residential properties owned by NHP, which are let on long leases to third-party
operators active in the UK healthcare sector (in particular HC-One, which
accounts for 84% of the estate).
