NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
HealthStream, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSTM), a leading provider of learning and
research solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today that it
has signed an amendment to its line of credit with SunTrust Bank,
increasing the availability under the line from $15.0 million to $20.0
million and extending its availability to July 2012.
In addition to the increased availability and extension to July 2012,
the updated line of credit eliminates the current minimum interest rate
floor of three percent. The interest rate is now equal to LIBOR plus a
margin determined in accordance with a pricing grid, which rate may or
may not be below the previous minimum of three percent. Other terms and
conditions as well as the financial tests and covenants that the Company
is required to meet under the line of credit remain unchanged from those
specified under the previous arrangement.
Commenting on the increased line of credit Robert A. Frist, Jr., chief
executive officer, HealthStream said, "The amendment increases available
capital for growth initiatives of the Company."
As of December 31, 2010, HealthStream had cash balances of approximately
$23.6 million and as of March 30, 2011, had no balances outstanding
under its $20 million line of credit.
