KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TeamHealth Holdings, Inc. ("TeamHealth") (NYSE: TMH) today announced that the underwriters of its recent initial public offering of common stock exercised in full their over-allotment option to purchase an additional 1,995,000 shares of common stock from the Company at the previously announced price of $12.00 per share. TeamHealth intends to use the additional net proceeds of approximately $22.5 million to redeem, on a pro rata basis, approximately $20.6 million aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 11.25% Senior Subordinated Notes due in 2013 (the "Notes").
BofA Merrill Lynch; Goldman, Sachs & Co.; Barclays Capital and Citi acted as joint book-running managers for the offering. Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank Securities, UBS Investment Bank, Morgan Keegan & Company, Inc. and Stephens Inc. were the co-managers of the offering.
TeamHealth previously announced a pro rata redemption of approximately $136.9 million of Notes. Two separate notices of redemption reflecting the $136.9 million redemption and the $20.6 million redemption have been sent to all registered holders of the Notes by the Notes trustee, The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A.
TeamHealth will redeem Notes held by noteholders on a pro rata basis at a redemption price of 107.000% of the principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest, to the applicable redemption dates.

In addition, TeamHealth also announced the successful completion of an amendment to Team Finance, LLC's ("Team Finances") senior secured credit agreement, effective on December 22, 2009, and that it entered into a new supplemental indenture relating to the Notes. Pursuant to the supplemental indenture, effective December 23, 2009, TeamHealth became a guarantor of Notes to streamline TeamHealth's reporting obligations going forward. The amendment to Team Finance's senior secured credit agreement provides Team Finance additional flexibility under certain of its covenants, including permitting it to make additional investments, loans and advances, to make additional repayments of its senior subordinated notes, and to incur additional earn-out obligations in connection with permitted acquisitions. In addition, lenders holding $125.0 million of commitments in the aggregate under the revolving credit facility agreed to extend the maturity date of their commitments to August 23, 2012.
Under no circumstances shall this press release constitute an offer to buy or the solicitation of an offer to sell the Notes or any other securities of TeamHealth.
