MILWAUKEE, Wis.--()--Physicians Realty Trust (NYSE:DOC) (the “Company,” the “Trust,” “we,” “our” and “us”), a self-managed healthcare real estate investment trust, today announced that it entered into an amended and restated credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) on June 10, 2016 with KeyBank National Association, as administrative agent, KeyBanc Capital Markets Inc., BMO Capital Markets and Citizens Bank, N.A., as joint lead arrangers and co-book runners, BMO Capital Markets and Citizens Bank, N.A., as co-syndication agents, and the lenders party thereto, which increases the maximum principal amount available under an unsecured revolving credit facility from $750 million to $850 million. The Credit Agreement also contains a seven year term loan feature allowing the Operating Partnership to borrow in a single drawing before July 11, 2016 up to $250 million, resulting in a current borrowing capacity of $1.1 billion. There is also a $500 million accordion feature which increases the maximum borrowing capacity to $1.6 billion.

The Credit Agreement has a maturity date of September 18, 2020 and includes an extension option of two additional six month periods. Borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest on the outstanding principal amount at a rate equal to LIBOR plus 0.85% to 1.55% for the revolving credit facility and LIBOR plus 1.40% to 2.25% for the term loan facility, in each case, determined based on the range into which the borrower’s credit rating then falls. The Company’s current credit rating will result in a borrowing rate equal to LIBOR plus 1.20% for the revolving credit facility and LIBOR plus 1.80% for the seven year term loan.

Jeff Theiler, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Trust, commented, “We are extremely pleased with this transaction. The term loan allows us to lock in seven year financing at an attractive rate and the upsized revolver increases our financial flexibility. We greatly appreciate the strong relationships we have built with our banking partners, some of which have been with us since our first $75 million secured line of credit, which continue to help propel our Company’s growth.”

The Credit Agreement contains financial covenants that, among other things, require compliance with leverage and coverage ratios and maintenance of minimum tangible net worth, as well as covenants that may limit the Company’s and the Operating Partnership’s ability to incur additional debt, grant liens or make distributions. The Company may, at any time, voluntarily prepay any revolving loan under the Credit Agreement in whole or in part without premium or penalty. Prepayment of the term loan may be subject to a prepayment premium depending on the time at which the term loan is prepaid.
