FCPT Announces Upsizing and Extension of Unsecured Credit Facility

10/25/2022

MILL VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Four Corners Property Trust (NYSE:FCPT), a real estate investment trust primarily engaged in the ownership and acquisition of high-quality, net-leased restaurant and retail properties (“FCPT” or the “Company”), announced today that the Company entered into a Third Amended and Restated Revolving Credit and Term Loan Agreement with a group of existing and new lenders. The amendment increases the overall size of the facility from $650 million to $680 million, and repaid $150 million of loans maturing in 2023 and 2024 with a new $90 million term loan maturing in 2027 (the “2027 Term Loan”) and a new $90 million term loan maturing in 2028 (the “2028 Term Loan”). Pricing and maturities for the $250 million revolving facility maturing in 2025, the $150 million term loan maturing in 2025 and the $100 million loan maturing in 2026 were not impacted by the extension. The $430 million of term loans will be fully drawn at close and provide $30 million of incremental proceeds to fund investments and other general corporate purposes.

“We are very appreciative of the support of our existing and new bank partners and their commitment to our growth. The increased proceeds, improved credit spread pricing on the new tranches and extended maturities reflect the quality of our portfolio, our disciplined approach to investing, and our continued commitment to a strong, investment-grade balance sheet,” said Gerry Morgan, Chief Financial Officer of FCPT.

The amendment also converts the facility from LIBOR to SOFR-based borrowings. Based on FCPT’s current investment grade ratings of BBB/Baa3 (Fitch/Moody’s), term loans bear interest at an adjusted SOFR rate plus a credit spread of 95 to 100 basis points depending on the term loan tranche.

FCPT has entered into interest rate swaps to hedge portions of the term loans as shown below:
