Orion Office REIT Inc. (NYSE: ONL) (“Orion” or the “Company”), a fully-integrated real estate investment trust focused on the ownership, acquisition and management of single-tenant net lease mission-critical suburban office properties located across the U.S., announced today that it has closed an amendment of its credit agreement.
Under the terms of the amendment, Orion used borrowings from its currently undrawn $425 million senior revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Facility”) to repay and retire the outstanding balance of its $175 million senior term loan facility scheduled to mature on November 12, 2023. The amendment also provides Orion with the option to extend the Revolving Facility for an additional 18 months to May 12, 2026 from the current scheduled maturity of November 12, 2024. The extension option is subject to customary conditions including the payment of an extension fee.
The amendment also effected certain other modifications to the credit agreement, including those described in the Company’s Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission today.
Wells Fargo Bank, National Association will remain the administrative agent for the Company’s credit agreement, and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., Mizuho Bank, Ltd. and TD Bank, N.A, acted as joint lead arrangers for the amendment.
Paul McDowell, Orion’s Chief Executive Officer and President, commented, “We are very pleased to have concluded this amendment which will retire our maturing term loan facility while continuing to provide Orion with access to liquidity and an extended loan term to continue to execute on the Company’s business plan. We’d like to thank our lenders for their confidence in Orion and our strategic direction.”
