NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hospitality Properties Trust (Nasdaq: HPT) today announced that it has amended and restated its credit agreement governing its $1 billion unsecured revolving credit facility and $400 million unsecured term loan.
Prior to the amendment, HPT’s $1 billion revolving credit facility had a maturity date of July 15, 2018 and required interest on drawings at a rate of LIBOR plus 110 basis points per annum. The maturity date of the amended revolving credit facility was extended to July 15, 2022, and interest payable on drawings under this facility has been reduced to a rate of LIBOR plus 100 basis points per annum. The facility fee remains unchanged at 20 basis points per annum on the total amount of lending commitments under this facility. Both the premium over LIBOR and the facility fee continue to be subject to adjustments based on changes to HPT’s credit ratings. The amended credit agreement also includes a borrower’s option to further extend the stated maturity date of this facility for two additional six month periods. As a result of this amendment, HPT expects to recognize a loss on early extinguishment of debt of $748 thousand during the three months ended June 30, 2018 to write off unamortized debt issuance costs.
Prior to the amendment, HPT’s $400 million term loan had a maturity date of April 15, 2019 and required interest on drawings at a rate of LIBOR plus 120 basis points per annum. The maturity date of the amended term loan was extended to July 15, 2023, and interest on drawings payable under this facility has been reduced to LIBOR plus 110 basis points per annum. The premium over LIBOR continues to be subject to adjustments based on changes to HPT’s credit ratings.
In addition, the amended credit agreement includes a feature under which, in certain circumstances, maximum commitments and borrowings may be increased to up to $2.3 billion on a combined basis.
