Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Credit Agreement

On May 14, 2014, Aviv Healthcare Properties Limited Partnership, a Delaware limited partnership (the "Partnership"), entered into a credit agreement (the "Credit Agreement") among the Partnership and Aviv Healthcare Capital Corporation, a Delaware corporation ("AHCC"), as borrowers, Aviv REIT, Inc., a Maryland corporation (the "Company"), and certain direct and indirect subsidiaries of the Partnership identified therein, each as guarantors, the financial institutions party thereto, as lenders, and Bank of America, N.A. ("Bank of America"), as administrative agent and a lender.

The Credit Agreement provides for an unsecured revolving credit facility in an amount up to $600.0 million. The amount of the credit facility may be increased by up to $200.0 million (resulting in total availability of up to $800.0 million), provided that certain conditions precedent are satisfied. Borrowings under the credit facility will bear interest at the rate of: (a) LIBOR or a comparable rate with respect to Eurodollar loans plus an applicable percentage of, initially, 1.70% to 2.25%, depending on the Company's consolidated leverage ratio, but if the Partnership achieves at least two non-credit-enhanced, senior unsecured long-term debt ratings of BBB- or higher from S&P or Fitch or Baa3 or higher from Moody's (such status being referred to herein as "investment grade") then an applicable percentage of 0.90% to 1.70% depending on such debt ratings; or (b) with respect to Base Rate Loans and Swing Line Loans (each as defined in the Credit Agreement), an applicable percentage of, initially, 0.70% to 1.25%, depending on the Company's consolidated leverage ratio, but if the Partnership achieves investment grade status, then an applicable percentage of 0.00% to 0.70% depending on such debt ratings, plus the greatest of (i) the Federal Funds Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus 1/2 of 1.00%; (ii) the rate of interest in effect for such day as publicly announced from time to time by Bank of America as its "prime rate;" and (iii) the Eurodollar rate determined on such day for a Eurodollar loan for an interest period of one month plus 1.00%. The initial maturity date for loans under the Credit Agreement is May 14, 2018 with a one-year extension option, provided that certain conditions precedent are satisfied. The credit facility is available for general corporate purposes.

The Credit Agreement contains customary covenants that include restrictions on the ability to make acquisitions and other investments, pay dividends, incur additional indebtedness, and sell or otherwise transfer certain assets as well as customary events of default. The Credit Agreement generally requires the Company to maintain (i) a consolidated leverage ratio less than or equal to 60%, (ii) a consolidated unencumbered leverage ratio less than or equal to 60%, (iii) a consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio of equal to or greater than 1.50 to 1.00 and (iv) a consolidated unsecured interest coverage ratio equal to or greater than 2.00 to 1.00. In addition, the Company must maintain a consolidated tangible net worth equal to or greater than $539,185,728 plus 75% of the net cash proceeds from equity transactions during the period commencing on April 1, 2014 and ending as of the last day of the fiscal quarter for which such calculation is being performed. The Company must maintain a consolidated secured leverage ratio of less than or equal to 30% and, if not investment grade, the aggregate outstanding amount of the Company's secured recourse indebtedness must be less than or equal to 10% of the consolidated total asset value of the Company.

At all times prior to when the Partnership achieves investment grade status, borrowers are obligated to pay an unused fee of 0.250% to 0.350% per quarter on any undrawn amounts under the credit facility. When the Partnership achieves investment grade status, borrowers are obligated to pay a facility fee of 0.125% to 0.300% per quarter on the aggregate committed amount under the credit facility, regardless of usage (or, if the commitments have terminated, the aggregate outstanding loans and letter of credit obligations). The amount of the credit facility may be permanently reduced, at the Company's option, without premium or penalty, and the credit facility may be repaid in whole or in part without premium or penalty. In the event of a default, the lenders have a right to terminate their obligations under the Credit Agreement and to accelerate the payment on any unpaid principal amount of all outstanding loans and all interest accrued and unpaid thereon. The Company and certain of its indirect subsidiaries have guaranteed the obligations under the Credit Agreement.
