NorthWest International Healthcare Properties REIT announces acquisition of 
German medical office building 
TORONTO, March 5, 2013 /CNW/ - NorthWest International Healthcare Properties 
Real Estate Investment Trust (TSXV: MOB.UN) (the "REIT") announced today that 
it has entered into an agreement to acquire Medicum Muensterfeld - a newly 
constructed medical office complex located in Fulda, Germany, approximately 
100km northeast of Frankfurt, Germany. The acquisition represents the REIT's 
sixth asset in Germany and reinforces its commitment to becoming the largest 
owner of healthcare real estate in the country. 
At approximately 120,000 square feet, Medicum Muensterfeld is 99% occupied 
with a weighted average lease expiry of 7.1 years. The property has a 
diversified tenant base focused on healthcare related users and orthapedic 
services which benefit from the building's close proximity to the Klinikum 
Fulda - one of Fulda's leading hospitals. 
The purchase price of approximately C$20.3M, subject to customary closing 
adjustments represents an approximate 7.0% in-place cap rate. The REIT's 
investment will be funded from existing resources and new mortgage financing 
from Deutsche Genossenschafts-Hypothekenbank for C$12.2M with a five year 
term, a fixed interest rate of approximately 2.50% per annum and a 40 year 
amortization period. The acquisition is expected to close during the first 
quarter of 2013, subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to be 
immediately accretive.
