Ramco-Gershenson Properties Trust Closes $360 Million Unsecured Credit Facility

Ramco-Gershenson Properties Trust (NYSE:RPT) announced today that it has closed a $360 million unsecured credit facility which amends and restates the Company’s prior $250 million facility. The amended facility is comprised of a $240 million revolving line of credit with a four-year term and one-year extension option and a five-year $120 million term loan. The facility can be upsized to $450 million through an accordion feature. Borrowings under the facility will bear interest at LIBOR plus 165 basis points subject to a pricing grid for changes in the Company’s leverage ratio.

KeyBanc Capital Markets acted as sole lead manager and arranger for the facility. JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and Bank of America, N.A. acted as co-syndication agents, and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and PNC Bank, National Association acted as co-documentation agents. Other lenders participating in the facility are RBS Citizens, N.A., Capital One, N.A., The Huntington National Bank, Comerica Bank, and Branch Banking and Trust Company.

"The extension and expansion of our credit facility as well as the improved pricing demonstrates the confidence our bank group has in our business plan and our ongoing commitment to maintaining a strong, flexible balance sheet," said Dennis Gershenson, President and Chief Executive Officer. "By taking advantage of the current bank financing environment we further our objectives of reducing the Company’s overall cost of capital and moving closer to an investment grade profile.”
