Chemed Corporation Announces Intention to Redeem All 8-3/4% Senior Notes Due 2011

CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 4, 2007--Chemed Corporation ("Chemed") (NYSE:CHE) today issued a notice of redemption, to redeem on May 4, 2007, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the condition referred to below, the entire $150 million aggregate principal amount of its 8-3/4% Senior Notes due 2011 (Notes). This redemption is being made pursuant to the terms of the indenture dated February 24, 2004 at a redemption price of 104.375% of the principal amount of the Notes together with accrued but unpaid interest.

This redemption is contingent upon the completion of one or more financing transactions by the Company prior to May 4, 2007, with terms that are reasonably satisfactory to Chemed. Accordingly, redemption will not occur, and none of the Notes will be deemed due and payable on May 4, 2007, unless this financing condition is satisfied or waived by Chemed.

On the redemption date, assuming satisfaction or waiver of the financing condition, the redemption price will become due and payable on all outstanding Notes. Upon redemption, interest on the Notes will cease to accrue on and after the redemption date, and the only remaining right of the holders of the Notes after such date will be to receive payment of the redemption price and accrued interest upon surrender of the Notes to LaSalle Bank National Association, as paying agent.

Listed on the New York Stock Exchange and headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, Chemed Corporation (www.chemed.com) operates two wholly owned subsidiaries: VITAS Healthcare and Roto-Rooter. VITAS is the nation's largest provider of end-of-life hospice care and Roto-Rooter is the nation's leading provider of plumbing and drain cleaning services.
