Thanks, Michelle. Good morning and thank you for joining our third quarter 2019 earnings conference call. Today I will discuss our third quarter results, our recent acquisition activity, Daybreak and the current reimbursement environment.
Our third quarter adjusted FFO is $0.76 per share. We declared a $0.67 per share dividend for the quarter. Payout ratio is 88% of adjusted FFO, and 97% of funds available for distribution. A one pay increase in our dividend reflects both known earnings upside namely the recently closed $735 million Encore transaction and the 2020 opening of Maplewood New Manhattan facility. And our optimism around continued growth opportunities and improvement in cash rents or rent equivalents from the Daybreak facilities.
Future potential dividend increases will be evaluated periodically by our Board of Directors and will be partially dependent on achieving both known earnings upsides and additional growth opportunities. On October 31st, we closed our previously announced Encore Portfolio acquisition for $735 million.
In addition, during the third quarter we opportunistically sold 19 facilities for $177 million recognized related gain of $53.1 million. We continue to work with Daybreak as Dan will detail Daybreak's near-term liquidity issues, which resulted in the payment of only $750,000 of third quarter rent. We expect these liquidity issues will be resolved over-time and anticipate significant future Daybreak rent upside as we work through the near-term Daybreak restructuring issues.
Lastly, on the reimbursement front. Operator feedback related to PDPM, the new Patient Driven Payment Model has been positive. It is still too early to know
