Cross Country Healthcare has completed a new $140 million credit agreement with a lender group led by SunTrust Bank, as administrative agent and issuing bank. The credit agreement provides a $40 million term loan and a revolving credit facility of up to $100 million both of which mature in five years.
The facilities replace both the company’s asset-based revolving credit facility and its subordinated term loan. Proceeds from the $40 million term loan were used primarily to refinance existing indebtedness under the asset-based revolving credit facility and the subordinated term loan, including prepayment fees and interest, as well as fees and expenses incurred. The revolving credit facility will be used to provide additional liquidity for ongoing working capital, fund permitted acquisitions and other general corporate purposes of the company and its subsidiaries.
“This marks another milestone in our goal to deliver superior financial performance and drive shareholder value,” said William J. Burns, CFO. “Our new credit agreement significantly lowers our overall borrowing costs and expands our liquidity, allowing us to continue to grow our business and make strategic investments. We believe Cross Country’s improved financial performance, a positive outlook on our industry and a stable financing market all contributed to our ability to successfully complete this new financing.”
