ITEM 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Story continues below

On August 31, 2018, IRET entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, for which KeyBank, National Association and PNC Bank, National Association, acted as Syndication Agents, and Bank of Montreal, as Administrative Agent. In connection with this amendment, IRET:

increased the overall unsecured facility from $370 million to $395 million, reallocating the commitment for the revolving line of credit to $250 million and the remaining $145 million between two term loans;

extended the maturity of the revolving line of credit to August 2022;

extended the existing $70 million unsecured term loan maturity to January 2024;

added a new $75 million, 7-year unsecured term loan maturing in August 2025 that bears interest at a spread of 175 basis points over LIBOR based on IRET’s overall leverage; and

maintains a $200 million accordion option that can be accessed by increasing lending commitments.

Under the amendment, the interest rate on the existing facilities decreases by 25-35 basis points depending on IRET’s overall leverage. IRET also entered into a swap agreement for the entire $75 million and full term of the new unsecured 7-year term loan in its ongoing effort to reduce floating interest rate exposure.

Further information regarding this amendment can be found in the Press Release dated September 6, 2018, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
