Franklin Street Properties Corp. (NYSEMKT:FSP) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive
Credit Agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.
On November30, 2016, Franklin Street Properties Corp. (the
Company) entered into a Credit Agreement with JPMorgan Chase
Bank, N.A, as administrative agent and lender, and the other
lending institutions party thereto (Credit Agreement), to provide
for a single unsecured bridge loan borrowing on the closing date
in the aggregate principal amount of $150,000,000 (the Bridge
Loan). On November30, 2016, the Company drew down $150,000,000
under the Bridge Loan. The Bridge Loan has a two year term that
matures on November30, 2018.
The Bridge Loan bears interest at either (i)a number of basis
points over the Eurodollar Rate depending on the Companys credit
rating (135.0 basis points over the Eurodollar Rate at
November30, 2016) or (ii)a number of basis points over the base
rate depending on the Companys credit rating (35.0 basis points
over the base rate at November30, 2016). The actual margin over
the Eurodollar Rate or the base rate is determined based on the
Companys credit rating to the following grid:
EURODOLLAR RATE MARGIN
BBB/Baa2 (or higher)
For purposes of the Bridge Loan, base rate means, for any day, a
fluctuating rate per annum equal to the greatest of: (i)JPMorgan
Chase Bank, N.A.s prime rate in effect on such day, (ii)the
greater of the Federal Funds Rate or the overnight bank funding
rate in effect on such day, plus 1/2 of 1.00% (but no less than
zero), and (iii)the one month Adjusted LIBOR based rate for such
day plus 1.00%. For purposes of the Bridge Loan, the Eurodollar
Rate means, for any interest period, the LIBO Rate for the
applicable interest period multiplied by the statutory reserve
rate, and in any event, the Eurodollar Rate shall not be less
Based upon the Companys credit rating, as of November30, 2016,
the effective interest rate on the Bridge Loan was 1.975% for the
initial one month interest period.
The Credit Agreement contains customary affirmative and negative
covenants for credit facilities of this type, including
limitations with respect to indebtedness, liens, investments,
mergers and acquisitions, disposition of assets, changes in
business, certain restricted payments, the requirement to have
subsidiaries provide a guaranty in the event that they incur
recourse indebtedness and transactions with affiliates. The
Credit Agreement also contains financial covenants that require
the Company to maintain a minimum tangible net worth, a minimum
fixed charge coverage ratio, a maximum secured leverage ratio, a
maximum leverage ratio, a maximum unencumbered leverage ratio, a
minimum unsecured interest coverage ratio and a maximum ratio of
certain investments to total assets. The Credit Agreement
provides for customary events of default with corresponding grace
periods, including failure to pay any
principal or interest when due, certain cross defaults and a
change in control of the Company (as defined in the Credit
Agreement). In the event of a default by the Company, the
Administrative Agent may, and at the request of the requisite
number of lenders shall, declare all obligations under the
Credit Agreement immediately due and payable, and enforce any
and all rights of the lenders or Administrative Agent under the
Credit Agreement and related documents. For certain events of
default related to bankruptcy, insolvency, and receivership,
all outstanding obligations of the Company will become
immediately due and payable. The Company used the net proceeds
of the Bridge Loan to finance the acquisition of the Property
(as defined in Item 2.01) on December1, 2016 and for other
general business purposes.
Certain of the lenders party to the Credit Agreement, and their
respective affiliates, have performed, and may in the future

commercial banking, investment banking, underwriting and other
financial advisory services, for which they have received, and
will receive, customary fees and expenses.
