Story continues below

Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On February24, 2017, we entered into an amended and restated
credit agreement with Citibank, N.A., as administrative agent and
lender, and a syndicate of other lenders, or the credit
agreement, to which we continue to have a $100.0 million secured
revolving credit facility, or the credit facility, that is
available for general business purposes, including acquisitions.
The credit facility replaced our then existing secured revolving
credit facility, or the previous credit facility, which was
scheduled to expire in April2017. We had no borrowings
outstanding under the previous credit facility at the time we
entered into the credit agreement.

The maturity date of the credit facility is February24, 2020,
and, subject to our payment of extension fees and meeting other
conditions, includes options for us to extend the stated maturity
date of the credit facility for two, one year periods. Other
terms of the credit facility are substantially similar to those
of the previous credit facility, including that we are required
to pay interest at an annual rate of LIBOR plus a premium of 250
basis points on borrowings under the credit facility; that we are
also required to pay a quarterly commitment fee of 0.35% per
annum on the unused part of the credit facility; and that we may
draw, repay and redraw funds until maturity, and no principal
repayment is due until maturity.

We are the borrower under the credit facility, and certain of our
subsidiaries guarantee our obligations under the credit facility,
which is secured by real estate mortgages on 10 senior living
communities with a combined 1,219 living units owned by our
guarantor subsidiaries and our guarantor subsidiaries accounts
receivable and certain related collateral. The amount of
available borrowings under the credit facility is subject to our
having qualified collateral, which is primarily based on the
value of the properties securing our obligations under the credit
facility. Accordingly, the availability of borrowings under the
credit facility at any time may be less than $100 million.

The credit facility provides for acceleration of payment of all
amounts outstanding upon the occurrence and continuation of
certain events of default, including a change of control of us,
as defined. The credit agreement contains a number of financial
and other covenants, including covenants that restrict our
ability to incur indebtedness or to pay dividends or make other
distributions under certain circumstances and require us to
maintain certain financial ratios and a minimum net worth.

Citibank, N.A. and the other lenders party to the credit
agreement, as well as their affiliates, have engaged in, and may
in the future engage in, investment banking, commercial banking,
advisory and other dealings in the ordinary course of business
with us. They have received, and may in the future receive,
customary fees and commissions for these engagements.

The foregoing description of the credit agreement is not complete
and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to
the credit agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as
