Item 8.01

Other Events.

On July 22, 2022, Welltower Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a prospectus supplement (the “Prospectus Supplement”) to the prospectus dated April 1, 2022, which was included in the Company’s automatic shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-264093). The Prospectus Supplement relates to the registration and possible issuance of up to 300,026 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $1.00 per share (the “Shares”), that may be issued from time to time if, and to the extent that, certain holders of Class A common units (the “Units”) of Welltower OP LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Welltower OP”), tender such Units for redemption by Welltower OP, and the Company elects to assume the redemption obligations of Welltower OP and to satisfy all or a portion of the redemption consideration by issuing Shares to the holders instead of or in addition to paying a cash amount.

Registration of the Shares as provided in the Prospectus Supplement does not necessarily mean that any of the holders of Units will exercise their redemption rights with respect to the Units or that the Company will elect to assume the redemption obligations of Welltower OP and to satisfy all or a portion of the redemption consideration by issuing Shares to the holders instead of or in addition to paying a cash amount.
