("ApolloMed," and together with its subsidiaries and affiliated entities, the "Company") (NASDAQ: AMEH), a leading physician-centric, technology-powered healthcare company focused on enabling providers in the successful delivery of value-based care, today announced that on June 16, 2021, it completed the successful refinancing of its existing term loan and revolving credit facility with a new five-year revolving credit facility of $400.0 million, which includes a letter of credit sub-facility of up to $25.0 million and a swingline loan sub-facility of $25.0 million.
Available cash of $58.7 million and a portion of the new revolving credit facility were used to pay off the Company's existing and remaining $175.8 million term loan and $60.0 million drawn on the prior revolving credit facility maturing in September 2024.

This refinancing puts ApolloMed in a more advantageous position as we look to accelerate the growth of our business in 2021 and drive increasing value to shareholders."
