Gentiva Health Services Closes Harden Healthcare Acquisition
Gentiva Health Services, Inc., the largest provider of home health and hospice services in the United States based on revenue, announced the closing of its acquisition of Harden Healthcare Holdings, Inc. Under the terms of the merger agreement, Gentiva acquired Harden's home health, hospice and community care businesses. Harden's existing shareholders retained the company's long-term care business.
The purchase price paid by Gentiva was $408.8 million, consisting of $355 million in cash and $53.8 million in Gentiva common stock. Gentiva funded the cash portion of the purchase price through available cash and a new credit facility.
