Brookdale Completes Financing Transactions; Extends Maturities and Lowers Credit Facility Borrowing Costs

Brentwood, Tennessee-based Brookdale Senior Living (NYSE: BKD) announced the Company the completion of two significant financing transactions.

Brookdale entered into an amended and restated credit agreement with lenders led by Capital One, National Association as lead arranger and sole book runner. The amended agreement replaced the Company’s former credit agreement and extended the maturity date from January 3, 2020 to January 3, 2024. The amended credit agreement provides commitments for a $250 million revolving credit facility with a $60 million sublimit for letters of credit and a $50 million swingline feature. Benefits from the new credit facility include a lower variable rate margin over LIBOR, a small expansion of the letter of credit sublimit, and a slightly more flexible fixed charge coverage covenant.


Participating lenders include Wells Fargo Bank, PNC Bank, Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase Bank, and First Tennessee Bank National Association. The revolving credit facility is currently secured by first priority mortgages on 15 communities and negative pledges on two communities, and allows for both the removal and addition of collateral.

Brookdale also obtained $327 million of mortgage financing from Berkadia Commercial Mortgage in a Freddie Mac Structured Pool Transaction. The non-recourse mortgage financing has a ten-year term and is secured by first priority mortgages on 28 senior living communities, most of which had collateralized the former credit facility or other loans with near-term maturity dates. Approximately 65% of the principal bears interest at a fixed rate, with the remainder at a variable rate. The mortgage financing allows for certain asset substitutions and partial releases.
