Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On December 10, 2021 (the “Issue Date”), Aveanna Healthcare LLC (the “Borrower”) and Aveanna Healthcare Intermediate Holdings LLC (“Holdings,” together with the Borrower, the “Loan Parties”), each of which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Aveanna Healthcare Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company”), entered into a Second Lien Credit Agreement (the “Second Lien Credit Agreement”) with a syndicate of lending institutions from time to time party thereto (the "Lenders"), and Barclays Bank PLC, as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent, in respect of a term loan in the principal amount of $415.0 million (the “Term Loan”). The Loan Parties entered into the Second Lien Credit Agreement to facilitate the acquisition of Comfort Care, as defined and described below under Item 2.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K.

 

The Term Loan bears interest at a rate per annum equal to, at the Company’s option, either (1) an applicable margin (equal to 6.00%) plus a base rate determined by reference to the highest of (a) 0.50% per annum plus the Federal Funds Effective Rate, (b) the Prime Rate and (c) the LIBOR rate determined by reference to the cost of funds for U.S. dollar deposits for an interest period of one month adjusted for certain additional costs, plus 1.00%; or (2) an applicable margin (equal to 7.00%) plus LIBOR determined by reference to the cost of funds for U.S. dollar deposits for the interest period relevant to such borrowing adjusted for certain additional costs; provided that such rate is not lower than a floor of 0.50%.

 

The Second Lien Credit Agreement is secured by a second lien on certain collateral specified therein and contains other customary terms, including (1) representations, warranties and affirmative covenants, (2) negative covenants, including limitations on indebtedness, liens, mergers, acquisitions, asset sales, distributions and prepayments of subordinated debt, in each case subject to baskets, thresholds and other exceptions, and (3) customary events of default and creditors’ remedies, including that, upon an Event of Default (as defined in the Second Lien Credit Agreement) that occurs and is continuing, subject to any applicable intercreditor agreement, the Lenders holding a majority of the sum of the outstanding principal amount of loans and unused commitments may cause the administrative agent to declare all outstanding borrowings immediately due and payable (such acceleration of all outstanding borrowings being automatic in the case of an Event of Default as a result of certain bankruptcy events). Additionally, the availability of certain baskets and the ability to enter into certain transactions are subject to compliance with certain financial ratios.

 

The Term Loan matures on December 10, 2029. The Borrower may voluntarily prepay, subject to certain minimum amounts, the Term Loan at any time without premium or penalty, except that, subject to certain exceptions, any amounts prepaid prior to the one-year anniversary of the Issue Date are subject to a 2.00% prepayment premium, and any amounts prepaid after the one-year anniversary of the Issue Date and prior to the two-year anniversary of the Issue Date are subject to a 1.00% prepayment premium, subject to a reduced prepayment premium of 1.00% in year one and no premium in year two if the Borrower elects to prepay amounts using proceeds from certain equity offerings. The Borrower must prepay a portion of the Term Loan in connection with certain sales of assets, incurrences of indebtedness or casualty events. Additionally, the Borrower must prepay a portion of the Term Loan using a percentage of its excess cash flow, subject to satisfaction of certain leverage ratios.

 

The foregoing description of the Second Lien Credit Agreement is only a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Second Lien Credit Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.

 

Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

 

On December 10, 2021, the Company completed its previously reported acquisition of Comfort Care Home Health Services, LLC, an Alabama limited liability company (“Comfort Care Home Health”), Comfort Care Hospice, L.L.C., an Alabama limited liability company (“Comfort Care Hospice”), Premier Medical Housecall, LLC, an Alabama limited liability company (“Premier Medical Housecall,” and together with Comfort Care Home Health and Comfort Care Hospice, “Comfort Care”), as contemplated by the Membership Interest Purchase Agreement, entered into on September 27, 2021, by the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Aveanna Healthcare Senior Services LLC, and the other parties thereto (the “Purchase Agreement”). Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, at closing, the Company paid aggregate consideration of $345.0 million in cash in consideration for all of the issued and outstanding membership interests in Comfort Care, subject to a customary purchase price adjustment providing for a normalized level of working capital and that Comfort Care, together with its subsidiaries, be free of cash and debt at closing.

 

The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement is only a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Purchase Agreement, which the Company previously filed as Exhibit 2.1 to its Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 1, 2021.
