The information set forth under Item 2.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K related to the Promissory Note is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.01.
As previously disclosed, on October6, 2017, in conjunction with the AdCare Acquisition, Holdings secured a $65.0 million incremental term loan commitment in conjunction with its senior secured credit agreement with Credit Suisse AG, as administrative agent and collateral agent (“Credit Suisse”) and the lenders party thereto (the “2017 Credit Facility”), subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory provisions. In connection with the financing, Holdings committed to a ticking fee that commenced on October23, 2017, at a rate of LIBOR plus 3.375%, and increased to LIBOR plus 6.75% for November22, 2017 through the Closing Date.
On the Closing Date, Holdings and Credit Suisse entered into the Incremental Loan Assumption Agreement (the “ILAA”) with the other loan parties thereto, the incremental term lenders party thereto (the “Incremental Term Lenders”) and the required lenders party thereto. to the ILAA, the Incremental Term Lenders extended to Holdings on the Closing Date the Incremental Term Loans (as defined in the ILAA) in the principal amount of $65.0 million for the purpose of providing financing for the AdCare Acquisition. The Incremental Term Loans will bear interest at the same rates available to the existing Term Loans (as such term is defined in the 2017 Credit Facility) and will mature on the same date as the existing Term Loans, June30, 2023, subject to customary events of default, including payment defaults, breaches of representations and warranties, covenant defaults, cross-defaults to other material indebtedness, certain events of bankruptcy and insolvency, material judgments, certain ERISA events, invalidity of loan documents and certain changes of control. The existing Term Loans and the Incremental Term Loans will require aggregate principal payments of approximately $1.7 million on quarterly repayment dates beginning March31, 2018 and continuing through June30, 2019, and payments of approximately $3.4 million on quarterly repayment dates beginning September30, 2019 and continuing through March31, 2023.
The ILAA also amends the 2017 Credit Facility to, among other things, permit Holdings to elect for the relevant ratios and baskets applicable upon the incurrence of indebtedness and other certain actions in connection with acquisitions not conditioned on the availability of third party financing to be determined at the time such definitive acquisition agreements are entered into rather than at the closing of such acquisition.
Borrowings under the 2017 Credit Facility, as amended by the ILAA, are guaranteed by Holdings’ wholly owned subsidiary, American Addiction Centers, Inc., and certain of its other subsidiaries, including AdCare and certain of its wholly owned subsidiaries, to that certain Guarantee and Collateral Agreement, dated as of June30, 2017, by and among Holdings, each of the subsidiary guarantors party thereto and Credit Suisse and joinders executed in connection therewith. The obligations are secured by a lien on substantially all of Holdings’ and each subsidiary guarantor’s assets.
The foregoing summary of the transactions contemplated by the ILAA does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the ILAA, which is filed herewith Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
