Lexington expects to use the proceeds from the senior unsecured credit facility for general working capital, including to refinance certain indebtedness and to fund property investments. Four draws under the term loan can be made until February 12, 2014.
In connection with the refinancing, Lexington amended its $255.0 seven-year secured term loan agreement to release the security. As a result, all of Lexington's corporate borrowings are now unsecured.
Lexington also announced that it obtained a $40.0 million non-recourse mortgage secured by its previously unencumbered property in Lenexa, Kansas. The mortgage loan is comprised of two notes, a $30.0 million fully amortizing note at a fixed interest rate of 3.40%, and a $10.0 million interest only note at a fixed rate of 4.60%. The notes mature in November 2027.A joint venture, in which Lexington has a minority interest, that owns a retail property in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, obtained a $15.3 million non-recourse mortgage secured by such property. The mortgage loan bears interest at a fixed interest rate of 3.70% and matures in March 2018. The mortgage loan proceeds were used to fully repay a $12.0 million bridge loan Lexington made to the joint venture when the property was acquired.
