NEW YORK, NEW YORK (August 5, 2021) INDUS Realty Trust, Inc. (Nasdaq: INDT) (“INDUS” or the “Company”), a U.S. based industrial/logistics REIT, announced today INDUS, as parent guarantor, INDUS RT, LP, as borrower, and certain subsidiaries of INDUS RT, LP as guarantors, have entered into a secured revolving credit facility of up to $100 million (the “New Credit Facility”), replacing both the Company’s former revolving credit line and acquisition credit line, which totaled $50 million in the aggregate and were scheduled to expire on September 30, 2021. The New Credit Facility has a three-year term with two one-year extensions at the Company’s option. The New Credit Facility also includes an uncommitted incremental facility, which would enable the New Credit Facility to be increased up to $250 million in the aggregate. Borrowings under the New Credit Facility will bear interest subject to a pricing grid for changes in the Company’s total leverage. Based on the Company’s current leverage, the initial annual interest rate under the New Credit Facility is one-month LIBOR plus 1.20% compared to a rate of one-month LIBOR plus 2.50% and one-month LIBOR plus 2.75% under its former revolving credit line and acquisition credit line, respectively.
“This facility provides the Company ample liquidity and flexibility as we continue to grow our industrial/logistics portfolio,” said Michael Gamzon, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased to substantially lower our borrowing costs from our prior facilities, in addition to migrating from a mortgage-secured to an equity-pledge structure. We remain committed to growing our unencumbered industrial/logistics portfolio and we thank all of our existing and new lending partners for their strong support of our vision and for their credit commitments to INDUS.”
