dentalcorp Announces Extension of Maturity of Credit Facility

by adminjay

dentalcorp recently announced an extension to its existing syndicated senior secured credit facility with a consortium of banks, led by CIBC Capital Markets and TD Securities. The maturity date of the credit facility will be extended to January 18, 2028, from its original May 27, 2026 date.

Concurrently, dentalcorp reduced the facility amount from $1.75 billion to $1.4 billion. This reduction reflects dentalcorp’s continued ability to generate strong free cash flow while maintaining its balanced approach to growth and will lower the company’s overall cost of capital.

In addition, dentalcorp has fully hedged the previously unhedged portion of its credit facility. As a result, 100% of the company’s bank debt exposure is now subject to a blended rate of approximately 6.6%, at current leverage levels, through May 2026.

The lending syndicate for the new facility is being led by CIBC Capital Markets and TD Securities acting as Bookrunners, with CIBC Capital Markets, TD Securities, Bank of America, and RBC Capital Markets acting as co-lead arrangers.

“The continued support from our banking partners reaffirms dentalcorp’s solid fundamentals and resilient business model. The new credit terms not only offer interest savings but also are in line with our strategic objectives for sustained double-digit growth and self-funding of our acquisitive program,” commented Nate Tchaplia, chief financial officer of dentalcorp.
