NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Emdeon Inc., a leading provider of healthcare revenue and payment cycle management and clinical information exchange solutions, today announced it has completed the re-pricing of its existing senior secured credit facilities. 

The new interest rate on the term loans is LIBOR plus 2.50%, compared to the previous interest rate of LIBOR plus 3.75%.  The new interest rate on the revolving loans is LIBOR plus 2.50%, compared to the previous interest rate of LIBOR plus 3.50% (or 3.25% based on a specified first lien net leverage ratio).  The term loans remain subject to a LIBOR floor of 1.25%, and there continues to be no LIBOR floor on the revolving loans. 

In connection with the re-pricing, Emdeon also amended its senior secured credit facilities to, among other things, eliminate the financial covenant related to the consolidated cash interest coverage ratio and modify the financial covenant related to the net leverage test by maintaining the required first lien net leverage ratio at its current level for the remaining term of the senior secured credit facilities.
