RAIT Financial Trust (“RAIT”) (NYSE:RAS) today announced that it has commenced a public offering of Senior Notes due 2024 (the “Notes”).

The Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of RAIT and will pay interest quarterly. We will issue the Notes in denominations of $25 and integral multiples of $25 in excess thereof. The aggregate principal amount of Notes being offered, interest rate and offering price of the Notes will be determined at the time of pricing of the offering.
