Cano Health Announces Closing of $150 Million Term Loan Facility
with Diameter Capital Partners and Rubicon Founders
Announces Preliminary Fourth Quarter 2022 Summary Financial Results
MIAMI, FL February 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/– Cano Health, Inc. (“Cano Health” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CANO), a leading value-based primary care provider and population health company, today announced that on February 24, 2023, it consummated the closing of a $150 million senior secured term loan (the “2023 Term Loan”), maturing November 23, 2027.
Lenders in the 2023 Term Loan were Diameter Capital Partners, Rubicon Founders and their respective affiliates and managed funds.
The 2023 Term Loan bears interest at 14% per annum in the first two years after initial funding, payable quarterly in cash or in-kind as an addition to the principal balance of the 2023 Term Loan, at the Company’s election, and, thereafter, 13% per annum, payable quarterly in cash. The 2023 Term Loan ranks pari passu in right of payment and lien priority with indebtedness under the Company’s existing senior credit facilities.

The Company has agreed to register the shares of Class A common stock underlying the warrants with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).
Cano Health intends to use proceeds from the transaction for general corporate purposes, including the repayment of amounts outstanding under its existing revolving credit facility, and to pay transaction fees and expenses related to the 2023 Term Loan.
“We are pleased to partner with experienced investors like Diameter and Rubicon who recognize the value of our platform,” said Dr. Marlow Hernandez, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cano Health. “With the completion of this financing, we remain focused on optimizing our existing capacity to continue to unlock the embedded profitability within our medical centers. In addition, the Company will continue to review our operations with the objective of further enhancing liquidity, improving margins, and maximizing long-term shareholder value.”
Jonathan Lewinsohn and Scott Goodwin, co-founders and Managing Partners of Diameter Capital Partners, said “As an existing lender to Cano Health, we are pleased to demonstrate our conviction in the Company. Cano Health operates in one of the most exciting areas of healthcare services, and we believe that the current capital infusion will help the Company realize its unique potential.”
“Our partnership with Cano Health meets our mission of advancing value-based primary care for underserved populations. We are pleased to support Cano Health in continuing to fulfill its goals of improving patient health and outcomes in the communities it serves,” said Adam Boehler, Managing Partner of Rubicon Founders.
JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. served as sole lead arranger and sole bookrunner in connection with the 2023 Term Loan and Goodwin Procter LLP served as legal advisor to Cano Health in connection with the 2023 Term Loan and warrants.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the SEC rules. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have not been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA, adjusted to add back the effect of certain expenses, such as stock-based compensation expense, non-cash goodwill impairment loss, de novo losses (consisting of costs associated with the ramp up of new medical centers and losses incurred for the 12 months after the opening of a new facility), transaction costs (consisting of transaction costs and corporate development payroll costs), restructuring and other charges, fair value adjustments in contingent consideration, loss on extinguishment of debt and changes in fair value of warrant liabilities. The Company’s management uses the non-GAAP financial measures as operating performance measures and as an integral part of its reporting and planning processes and to, among other things: (i) monitor and evaluate the performance of the Company’s business operations, financial performance and overall liquidity; (ii) facilitate management’s internal comparisons of the Company’s historical operating performance of its business operations; (iii) facilitate management’s external comparisons of the results of its overall business to the historical operating performance of other companies that may have different capital structures and debt levels; (iv) review and assess the operating performance of the Company’s management team and, together with other operational objectives, as a measure in evaluating employee compensation, including bonuses and other incentive compensation; (v) analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future operating investments; and (vi) plan for and prepare future annual operating budgets and determine appropriate levels of operating investments. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide an additional tool for our management and investors to use in evaluating our financial condition, ongoing operating performance and trends and in comparing our financial measures with other similar companies. Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and greater transparency about the performance, from management’s perspective, of the Company’s overall business because such measures eliminate the effects of certain charges that are not directly attributable to the Company’s underlying operating performance. Additionally, management believes that providing the non-GAAP financial measures enhances the comparability for investors in assessing the Company’s financial reporting.
The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for their respective most directly comparable As Reported financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as net income/loss. These non-GAAP financial measures are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management about which expense, income and other items are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In addition, other companies may define such non-GAAP measures differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance, all of which could reduce the usefulness of our non-GAAP financial measures as tools for comparison. Also, while EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, as used in this release, are defined differently than Adjusted EBITDA for the Company’s credit agreements and indentures, certain financial covenants in its borrowing arrangements are tied to similar financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements and related footnotes filed with the SEC.
A reconciliation of those measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures is available under the heading “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures.”
The Company has not reconciled its expectations as to non-GAAP measures in future periods to their most directly comparable GAAP measure because certain costs and expenses are outside of its control or cannot be reasonably predicted. Accordingly, reconciliation is not available without unreasonable effort, although it is important to note that these factors could be material to the Company’s results computed in accordance with GAAP.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation, or sale of any security in any jurisdiction in which such offering, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
