DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CyrusOne Inc. (NASDAQ: CONE), a premiere global data center REIT, today announced that its operating partnership, CyrusOne LP, has entered into an amended senior unsecured credit agreement, increasing the total size of the facility to $1.55 billion. The size of the revolving credit facility has been increased by $350 million to $1.0 billion, and the interest rate margin applicable to the revolving loans based on the Company’s current leverage level has been decreased by 15 basis points to LIBOR plus 1.55%. The maturity of the revolving credit facility has been extended to November 2020 including a one-year extension option which, if exercised by the Company, would extend the final maturity to November 2021. In addition to the revolving credit facility, the credit agreement includes two term loans totaling $550 million, each of which was outstanding prior to the execution of the amended agreement. The interest rate margin applicable to each term loan based on the Company’s current leverage level has also been decreased by 15 basis points to LIBOR plus 1.50%. The maturity of the $300 million term loan has been extended to January 2022, while the maturity of the $250 million term loan remains September 2021. The credit agreement contains an accordion feature that allows the Company to obtain up to $300 million in additional revolving or term loan commitments.
“The more than 50% increase in capacity under our revolving credit facility, coupled with the extension of the facility's maturity dates, provides us substantial financial flexibility and liquidity to fund the strong growth outlook for our business at very attractive interest rates,” said Diane Morefield, Chief Financial Officer. “Combined with the $214 million forward equity available to us through August 1, 2017, this transaction positions us very well to meet our financing requirements. We would like to thank our entire lending group for their continued support of CyrusOne.”
