Nobilis Health Corp. has entered into a new $82.5 million five-year credit facility with BBVA Compass Bank consisting of a $52.5 million term loan and a $30.0 million revolving credit facility. The new facility is led by Compass Bank as administrative agent with BBVA Compass as sole lead arranger and book runner, and Legacy Texas Bank as documentation agent. Four other banks participated in the facility. Legacy Texas Bank, who participated in the previous credit facility at $10.0 million, increased their participation in the new credit facility to $21.0 million.

Proceeds from the credit facility will be used to refinance all previously held debt and lines of credit currently under Healthcare Financial Solutions, LLC (formerly known as GE Capital Corporation) and fund the previously announced acquisition of Arizona Vein and Vascular Center ("AVVC") and its affiliated surgery centers. The new facility bears interest at a rate of 3.00% to 3.75%, plus LIBOR, based on the Company's consolidated leverage ratio, versus 4.00% plus LIBOR under the previous facility.

"The expansion of our borrowing capacity and refinancing of existing debt enhances our ability to continue to implement our long-term growth strategy, lowers our overall borrowing costs and further increases our liquidity position," said Harry Fleming, Chief Executive Officer of Nobilis. "The support of our new bank syndicate led by BBVA Compass enables us to utilize this new source of credit to continue our ongoing execution of fundamental organic growth, while funding acquisitions in new and existing markets."

Nobilis is a full-service healthcare development and management company which currently owns or manages four surgical hospitals and five ASCs, partners with thirty-three additional facilities throughout the country, and markets six independent brands. Deploying a unique patient acquisition strategy driven by direct-to-consumer marketing, Nobilis is focused on a specified set of procedures that are performed at our centers by local physicians.
