Brookdale Announces New Corporate Line of Credit
Date:2/23/2010

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Brookdale Senior Living Inc. (NYSE: BKD) announced today that the Company has entered into a new revolving credit facility. The new facility has a commitment of $100 million, with an option to increase the commitment to $120 million. The new facility replaces the Company's existing $75 million revolving credit agreement that was scheduled to expire in August 2010.  The revolving line of credit may be used to finance acquisitions and fund working capital, capital expenditures and other general corporate purposes.  GE Capital, Healthcare Financial Services, acts as administrative agent as well as a lender under the new line.  

The new facility matures on June 30, 2013 and is secured by a first priority security interest in certain of the Company's properties.  The commitment will be limited to $80 million pending finalization of documentation for the remaining $20 million commitment, which is expected within the next week. The availability under the line may vary from time to time as it is based on borrowing base calculations related to the value and performance of collateral securing the facility.  

Bill Sheriff, Brookdale's CEO, commented, "We are pleased that GE Capital has agreed to provide this financing for Brookdale.  The new facility provides us with increased flexibility and capacity which will be instrumental in Brookdale's future growth."

"GE's healthcare industry expertise enables us to continue to support our customers' growth opportunities and help them meet their business goals," said Brian Beckwith, senior managing director for GE Capital, Healthcare Financial Services' real estate group.
