Annapolis, Md. – In preparation for a special breakout session during the 2011 NIC Regional Symposium in March, the National Investment Center for the Seniors Housing & Care Industry has issued a call for business plan submissions from seniors housing businesses interested in presenting investment opportunities to a panel of deal-making experts and investors. The opportunities must relate to the seniors housing and care industry and can range from services to real estate and span such areas as new development, recapitalization, acquisition, renovation or expansion, or new product offering.

During “Competing for Capital in a Challenging Climate,” participating companies will make presentations to a panel of respected professionals from the capital markets who will pose challenging questions and provide commentary to help them sharpen the organization and delivery of their plans. These panelists will focus on identifying the less-visible risk factors of each business plan and suggest strategies for addressing them. Prior to the session, qualified business advisors will coach each presenter, giving instructive guidance to help ensure that the information is comprehensive and sufficiently well-developed for a successful presentation.

For consideration, executive summaries of business plans for projects seeking to raise debt or equity financing should be emailed to Nicole Opatz at by January 31, 2011. No more than three business plans will be analyzed during the session. For questions or to receive additional information, call (410) 267-0504.
