Nov 16, 2015, 16:05 ET from Addus HomeCare Corporation

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Addus HomeCare Corporation (Nasdaq:  ADUS), a comprehensive provider of home and community-based services that are primarily personal in nature, provided in the home and focused on the dual eligible population, today announced that it has executed a credit agreement that expands its credit facilities to $100 million from $55 million previously. Under the new modified credit agreement, Addus has access to a term loan of up to $25 million, with the remaining $75 million available as a revolving credit facility. The Company has not accessed the term loan to date and currently has $58.3 million available under the revolving credit facility. The credit agreement has an accordion feature that enables the credit facility to be expanded to a total of $150 million, with access to a term loan of up to $25 million and with the remaining $125 million available as a revolving credit facility.

Don Klink, Chief Financial Officer, of Addus HomeCare, said, "We have completed a significant expansion of our credit facility to enhance our ability to grow, both organically and through acquisitions. In addition to strong positive demographic trends, these growth opportunities reflect the continuing transition by many states of care for their dual eligible populations to managed care organizations. Consistent with our recently completed acquisition of BestCare HomeCare, which has annualized revenues of approximately $5.7 million, and our pending acquisition of $47 million-revenue South Shore Home Health Services, we continue to focus on markets where the MCO transition has occurred, is underway or is anticipated in the near term."
