The principal terms of the senior secured credit facilities, including interest rates, principal amortization and covenants remain unchanged.
Steve Griggs, Co-CEO of AdaptHealth commented, “We appreciate the support of the Company’s lenders as we continue to execute on the Company’s growth strategy. Building on the combination of AdaptHealth and AeroCare in February 2021, we are seeing sustained opportunities to continue our growth through strategic and accretive acquisitions in all of our core businesses. The additional funding is critical to our ability to move quickly and capitalize on these opportunities. Having completed 245 acquisitions on a combined basis since 2012 (85 completed by AdaptHealth and 160 by AeroCare), I’m very confident that our acquisition program will continue to substantially contribute to AdaptHealth’s future financial success. ”
Josh Parnes, President of AdaptHealth also commented, “We are also very pleased at the progress we have made integrating the operations of AdaptHealth and AeroCare. We are confident that those integration efforts will enhance our ability to integrate future acquisitions on to our best-in-class technology platforms and drive internal process and operating efficiencies.”
