Premier Healthcare Alliance, L.P., Premier Supply Chain Improvement, Inc. and Premier Healthcare Solutions, Inc. Enters into First Amendment to the Unsecured Credit Agreement

On June 4, 2015, Premier Healthcare Alliance, L.P., Premier Supply Chain Improvement, Inc. and Premier Healthcare Solutions, Inc. as co-Borrowers, Premier Services, LLC (Services) and certain domestic subsidiaries of Services, as Guarantors, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent, Swing Line Lender and L/C Issuer, other lenders from time to time party thereto, and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, as Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Book Managers, entered into the first amendment (the Amendment) to the unsecured Credit Agreement, dated as of June 24, 2014 (the Credit Agreement). The Amendment revises clause (e) of the definition of Change of Control in Section 1.01 of the Credit Agreement to remove language that could be viewed as restricting the ability of stockholders to nominate and elect new directors, commonly referred to as a dead hand proxy put. The Amendment is responsive to recent developments under Delaware law occurring after the date of the original Credit Agreement. Under the Credit Agreement, the occurrence of a Change of Control, among other events, constitutes an event of default. If any event of default occurs and is continuing, the Administrative Agent may, with the consent, or shall, at the request of a majority of the lenders, terminate the commitments and declare all of the amounts owed under the Credit Agreement to be immediately due and payable. As of the date of this report, there are no borrowings outstanding under the Credit Agreement. All other terms of the Credit Agreement remain the same and are described in more detail in the Current Report on Form 8-K previously filed on June 25, 2014. In the ordinary course of their business, the lenders and certain of their affiliates have in the past or may in the future engage in investment and commercial banking or other transactions of a financial nature with Co-Borrowers or their affiliates, including the provision of certain advisory services and the making of advances under the Credit Agreement and other loans to Co-Borrowers and their affiliates.
