NEW YORK, April 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Net Lease, Inc. (NYSE: GNL) ("GNL" or the "Company") announced today that the Company has replaced its existing credit facility with a new, $1.45 billion corporate revolving credit facility (the "Credit Facility") that has a 4.5-year term and improved pricing that is 15 basis points lower than the facility it replaced. The Credit Facility will be administered by Key Bank, N.A. and includes two six-month extension options. The interest rate on the Credit Facility adjusts based on the leverage ratio, with a minimum rate of 1.30% over the currency-specific benchmark rate and a maximum of 1.90% over the currency-specific benchmark rate.
"Building on the strength of our acquisitions and leasing success, I am pleased to announce the recast and expansion of our corporate credit facility on what we believe to be very attractive terms," said James Nelson, CEO of GNL. "In order to capture the full benefit of an active corporate syndication market and lock in certainty with respect to terms and pricing, we proactively replaced the prior facility more than a year before its maturity date. With an accordion feature that could expand the facility up to nearly $2 billion, we believe this transaction further strengthens our balance sheet and provides flexibility for execution of our growth strategy as we seek to continue acquiring high-quality industrial, distribution and office properties."
