RadNet Announces a Proposed Refinancing of its $444.8 Million Senior Secured First Lien Term Loans and $101.25 Million Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility

LOS ANGELES, June 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RadNet, Inc. (NASDAQ:RDNT), a national leader in providing high-quality, cost-effective, fixed-site outpatient diagnostic imaging services through a network of 309 owned and/or operated outpatient imaging centers, today announced a proposed refinancing of its $444.8 million senior secured first lien term loans and $101.25 million senior secured revolving credit facility with a proposed seven-year $485 million senior secured first lien term loan facility and a five-year $100 million senior secured first lien revolving credit facility. In addition to repaying the existing $444.8 million senior secured first lien term loan, the proceeds are expected to repay any outstanding balance on the existing senior secured revolving credit facility ($16.3 million balance at March 31, 2016) and a portion of the Company’s senior secured second lien term loan ($180 million balance at March 31, 2016) and fund fees and expenses associated with the refinancing transaction.

The potential refinancing transaction would be subject to negotiations with lenders and market and other conditions. As such, there can be no assurance that RadNet will complete a refinancing transaction on terms that are favorable to RadNet or its investors. RadNet may engage from time to time in discussions with creditors of RadNet, as well as their respective advisors, as RadNet pursues such potential refinancing transaction.

Mark Stolper, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of RadNet, commented, “We have publicly discussed in recent quarters the possibility of extending the maturity of the senior most portion of our debt capital. After having consulted with our investment banking advisors, we expect to launch a refinancing transaction designed to replace our current senior secured first lien term loans and revolving credit facility with similar debt facilities, subject to market and other conditions. Our objective is to eliminate any near-term maturities and provide us with additional operating flexibility with which we can continue to grow our company. If successful, we expect to consummate a transaction in June.”

In connection with the marketing of the proposed refinancing transaction, RadNet releases the following reconciliation of trailing 12 month Adjusted EBITDA(1) as of March 31, 2016 (as previously reported) to trailing 12 month Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA(1), which incorporates certain adjustments to previously reported Adjusted EBITDA(1) related to events that have taken place within the last twelve months.

($ in Thousands)
Trailing 12 Month Adjusted EBITDA(1) As Reported(a) 128,577
Plus Pro Forma Addback for Acquisitions Completed in the Last 12 Months 9,383
Plus Pro Forma Addback for the Buyout of Operating Leases Completed in the Last 12 Months 524
Trailing 12 Month Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA $138,484


(1) Neither Adjusted EBITDA nor Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA are reported in accordance with generally applicable accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), and are considered as "non-GAAP financial measures" pursuant to Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. RadNet defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, each from continuing operations and adjusted for losses or gains on the sale of equipment, other income or loss, debt extinguishments and non-cash equity compensation. Adjusted EBITDA includes equity earnings in unconsolidated operations and subtracts allocations of earnings to non-controlling interests in subsidiaries, and is adjusted for non-cash or extraordinary and one-time events that have taken place during the period.

Adjusted EBITDA and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA are reconciled to their nearest comparable GAAP financial measure, net income attributable to RadNet, Inc. common stockholders. Adjusted EBITDA and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA are used as analytical indicators by RadNet management and the healthcare industry to assess business performance, and are measures of leverage capacity and ability to service debt. Neither Adjusted EBITDA or Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA should be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA or Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to net income, cash flows generated by operating, investing or financing activities or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity. As Adjusted EBITDA and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA are not measurements determined in accordance with GAAP and are therefore susceptible to varying methods of calculation, these metrics, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

(a)For the Twelve Month Period Ended March 31, 2016, the following is a reconciliation of GAAP Net Income Attributable to RadNet, Inc. Common Stockholders to Adjusted EBITDA:
