HCA is planning to pay a $2 billion dividend to its stockholders, which include Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and Bain Capital. To help finance the distribution, the company plans to raise $1.525 million of debt financing through the sale of senior unsecured notes due 2021. Additional financing will come from borrowings under the company's senior secured credit facilities. HCA owns and operates hospitals and related healthcare entities and was acquired by KKR, Bain and BAML Capital Partners for $21.3 billion, in November 2006. This is the third dividend the company's investors have received this year from the company.
