Item 1.01                                             Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On November 10, 2011, SL Green Realty Corp. (the “Company”), SL Green Operating Partnership, L.P. (“SL Green OP”) and Reckson Operating Partnership, L.P. (“Reckson”) entered into a $1.5 billion revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”).  The Credit Facility matures in November 2015 and has a one-year extension option, subject to certain conditions and the payment of an extension fee of 20 basis points.  We also have an option, subject to customary conditions, without the consent of existing lenders, to increase the capacity under the Credit Facility to $1.75 billion at any time prior to the maturity date, by obtaining additional commitments from our current lenders and other financial institutions.  The Credit Facility replaces the Company’s existing revolving credit facility.

 

The Credit Facility bears interest at a spread over LIBOR with an interest period of 7 days or one, three or six months, as we may elect, ranging from 100 basis points to 185 basis points, based on the credit rating assigned to the senior unsecured long term indebtedness of Reckson.  At November 10, 2011, the applicable spread was 150 basis points.  The Credit Facility also contains a competitive bid option that allows banks that are part of the lender consortium to bid to make loan advances to us at a reduced interest rate.  We are required to pay quarterly in arrears a 17.5 to 45 basis point fee on the unused balance of the commitments under the Credit Facility, which fee is based on the credit rating assigned to the senior unsecured long term indebtedness of Reckson.

 

The Credit Facility contains certain restrictions and covenants that may limit, among other things, our ability to pay dividends (as discussed below), make certain types of investments, incur certain additional indebtedness by our subsidiaries which are not borrowers, incur liens and enter into negative pledge agreements, merge, consolidate or sell all or substantially all of our assets and enter into transactions with affiliates, and that require us to maintain a minimum tangible net worth (applicable only to Reckson and its subsidiaries) of not less than $2.0 billion, a maximum ratio of total indebtedness to total asset value (applicable to both Reckson and its subsidiaries and the Company and its subsidiaries) of not more than 0.60 to 1.00, a minimum ratio of EBITDA to fixed charges (applicable to both Reckson and its subsidiaries and the Company and its subsidiaries) of not less than 1.50 to 1.00, which ratio will be increased to 1.75 to 1.00 if a change of control occurs, a maximum ratio of secured indebtedness to total asset value (applicable only to Reckson and its subsidiaries) of not more than 0.40 to 1.00 and a maximum ratio of unsecured indebtedness to unencumbered asset value (applicable only to Reckson and its subsidiaries) of not more than 0.60 to 1.00.  The dividend restriction referred to above provides that we will not during any time when we are in default (other than payment or bankruptcy default) under the Credit Facility make distributions with respect to common stock or other equity interests in an aggregate amount that is in excess of the amount necessary to enable us to continue to qualify as a REIT for Federal Income Tax purposes and that we will not during any time when we are in payment or bankruptcy default under the Credit Facility make any distributions with respect to common stock or other equity interests.  The Credit Facility is also subject to customary events of default.

 

The Company, the Operating Partnership and Reckson are borrowers jointly and severally obligated under the Credit Facility.  The lending group for the Credit Facility consists of Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent, Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., as the Lead Arrangers, Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Deutsche Bank Securities, Inc., as the Joint Bookrunners, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Syndication Agent, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., Bank of America, N.A. and Citigroup Global Markets Inc., as the Documentation Agents, and the other lenders and agents a party thereto.

 

The description of the Credit Facility contained in this report is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Credit Facility, a copy of which is  filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this report and incorporated herein by reference.
