On March 18, 2010, Five Star Quality Care, Inc. (the “Company”), the other guarantors party thereto, Jefferies Finance LLC, as Arranger, Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent, and Jefferies Group Inc., as Issuing Bank, entered into a credit and security agreement (the “New Credit Agreement”) to replace the Company’s prior credit and security agreement with Wachovia Bank, National Association.  The New Credit Agreement provides for a revolving credit facility in the maximum amount of $35 million.  The credit facility is guaranteed by certain of the Company’s subsidiaries and is secured by certain accounts receivable and related collateral of the Company and the subsidiary guarantors.

 

The new revolving credit facility terminates on March 18, 2013, at which point all amounts outstanding under the revolving credit facility are due.  Funds available under this credit facility may be drawn, repaid and redrawn until maturity and no principal payment is due until maturity.  This credit facility also provides for acceleration of payment of all amounts payable under the facility upon the occurrence and continuation of certain events of default. Drawings under this new credit facility will require interest payments of LIBOR (with a floor of 200 basis points) plus 400 basis points.  The credit facility is more fully described in a copy of the Company’s press release attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 1.02.  Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

In connection with the New Credit Agreement described above, effective as of March 18, 2010, the Company’s credit and security agreement with Wachovia Bank, National Association, as Lender, dated as of May 9, 2005 (as amended), terminated.  This credit agreement made available to the Company a revolving credit facility in the maximum amount of $40 million.  The prior revolving credit facility was guaranteed by certain of the Company’s subsidiaries and drawings thereunder required interest payments of LIBOR plus 200 basis points.
