DENVER, Jan. 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dividend Capital Diversified Property Fund Inc. ("DPF"), a public reporting, daily NAV REIT (Nasdaq:ZDPFEX) (Nasdaq:ZDPFAX) (Nasdaq:ZDPFWX) (Nasdaq:ZDPFIX), announced the closings of a $550 million senior unsecured credit and term facility (the "Facility"). The Facility includes a $400 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility and a $150 million delayed-draw term loan. An accordion feature will allow DPF to increase the Facility by $350 million, subject to obtaining additional lender commitments, for total maximum commitments of $900 million. At closing, DPF had $280 million outstanding on the revolving credit facility and $100 million outstanding on the delayed-draw term loan. Proceeds from the Facility were used to retire the outstanding obligations under DPF's previous senior unsecured credit facility.
The revolving credit facility is scheduled to mature on January 31, 2019. However, DPF may extend the maturity date to January 31, 2020, subject to satisfaction of certain conditions and payment of an extension fee. Pricing under the revolving credit facility is based upon DPF's consolidated leverage ratio and is currently at LIBOR plus 140 basis points.
The delayed-draw term loan matures January 31, 2018 and may be extended for two, 12 month periods to January 31, 2020 subject to satisfaction of certain conditions and payment of extension fees. Pricing under the three-year term loan is based upon DPF's consolidated leverage ratio and is currently at LIBOR plus 135 basis points.
Kirk Scott, Chief Financial Officer, commented, "Real estate markets are very dynamic and always changing. Our unsecured financing strategy has become an integral part of our business that provides us with significant flexibility at what we believe to be attractive pricing and terms."
