OMAHA, Neb., May 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- America First Multifamily Investors L.P. (Nasdaq:ATAX) (the "Company") today announced it has closed on an Unsecured Line of Credit of up to $50 million with its lead participant, Bankers Trust Company. The Line of Credit ("LOC") has a two year term, with annual renewal periods of one year, and bears a variable rate of interest based on the 30-Day LIBOR rate.
"This Unsecured Line of Credit will allow us to continue to pursue our strategic initiatives and provide enhanced value to our unitholders through additional growth in multifamily investments," commented Chad Daffer, Fund Manager of America First Multifamily Investors, L.P. "We are pleased to partner with our lead participant, Bankers Trust Company, in this effort." The Company plans to use the proceeds from the new LOC primarily to increase its investment in its core business of acquiring, holding, and selling a portfolio of mortgage revenue bonds issued to provide financing for multifamily properties, the interest on which the Company expects and believes is excludable from gross income for federal income tax purposes.
The Company also has access to a long-term secured debt financing facility through Freddie Mac's Tax-Exempt Bond Securitization (TEBS) program. This financing facility has the advantage of providing the Company with long-term variable rate debt at prevailing short-term, tax-exempt rates.
