Expands and Extends Senior Secured Credit Facility
FRANKLIN, Tenn.--(Business Wire)--
Acadia Healthcare Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACHC) today announced that it completed
the previously announced acquisitions of Behavioral Centers of America, LLC and
AmiCare Behavioral Centers on December 31, 2012. In addition, Acadia has
expanded and extended its senior secured credit facility. The credit facility
now consists of a $300 million term loan and a $100 million revolving credit
facility, compared previously with $150 million and $75 million, respectively.
In addition, the interest rate for the credit facility, which matures in
December 2017, is now 100 basis points lower at Libor plus 3.25%. 

Borrowings under the new facility, combined with a portion of the net proceeds
of $173.0 million from the Company`s recent sale of common stock, were used to
fund the BCA and AmiCare acquisitions. Acadia currently has no borrowings under
the revolving credit facility. 

"We are very pleased to have closed 2012 with two significant acquisitions,
which together bring eight inpatient psychiatric facilities and over 600
licensed inpatient beds to Acadia," remarked Brent Turner, President of Acadia.
"In addition, our amended credit facility and equity financing position us well
to continue implementing our acquisition strategy in 2013."
