National Health Investors, Inc. (NYSE: NHI) announced today it has entered into amended $370 million senior unsecured credit facilities that includes a $250 million revolving credit facility and $120 million of 7-year term loans. The revolving credit facility matures in five years (inclusive of an embedded 1-year extension option), and the term loans mature in 7 years.

Justin Hutchens, NHI’s CEO and President, noted, “We appreciate the considerable commitments offered by the banks participating in this credit facility, which result in low borrowing costs, extended loan maturities and additional borrowing capacity that offers substantial support to NHI’s growth.”

Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, BMO Capital Markets and KeyBank National Association were joint lead arrangers for the facilities and arranged a syndicate that included nine banks. BMO Capital Markets and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC were joint lead arrangers for the $120 million 7-year term loan facility. Other banks in the credit facility are Bank of America, Regions Bank, Pinnacle National Bank, United Community Bank, Stifel Bank & Trust and UMB Bank. The amended credit facility provides for:

(1) Unsecured, revolving borrowings of up to $250 million with interest at 140 basis points over LIBOR and a maturity of 5 years (inclusive of an embedded 1-year extension option); and

(2) Unsecured, 7-year term loans of $120 million with interest at 150 basis points over LIBOR, of which interest of 3.04% on a notional amount of $40 million is fixed for a period of 6 years and interest of 3.61% on a notional amount of $80 million is fixed for a period of 7 years with interest rate swap agreements.
