Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

 

 

ITEM 2.03

 

Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

 

On May 15, 2008, we entered into a $330 million variable rate unsecured term loan (the “Term Loan”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., serving as syndication agent, Bank of America, N.A., serving as administrative agent, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, serving collectively as documentation agent, and a syndicate of other financial institutions, serving as banks.  Under the terms of the Term Loan, the loan proceeds were disbursed in three separate tranches, Tranche A with proceeds of $105,600,000 million, Tranche B with proceeds of $112,200,000 million, and Tranche C with proceeds of $112,200,000 million.  We may request to increase the total loan amount by an additional $70 million to an aggregate size of $400 million; no bank is required to provide any such additional financing, nor may any bank prevent another bank from funding an increase within that limit.  Each tranche bears a distinct maturity date.  Tranche A will mature on May 1, 2009, Tranche B will mature on January 4, 2010, and Tranche C will mature on January 3, 2011.  We may not extend the term of any tranche.  We paid customary arrangement and upfront fees to the lenders in connection with the closing of the Term Loan.

 

The Term Loan bears interest at varying levels based on (1) the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) and (2) the rating levels issued for our unsecured and unsubordinated long-term indebtedness.  The current stated pricing is LIBOR plus 1.25% per annum.  The stated spread over LIBOR can vary from LIBOR plus 1.15% to LIBOR plus 1.975% based upon the rating of our unsecured and unsubordinated long-term indebtedness.

 

Under the Term Loan we are subject to certain customary covenants, including, but not limited to, maintaining certain maximum leverage ratios, a minimum fixed charges coverage ratio, a maximum secured indebtedness ratio, and a minimum unencumbered assets level.
