SL Green Realty Corp. (SLG - Snapshot Report), a real estate investment trust (REIT), has recently increased its erstwhile $1.5 billion revolving credit facility to $1.6 billion. Besides increasing the borrowing capacity, the new credit facility reduced the borrowing costs and extended the debt maturity.
Wells Fargo Securities, LLC - part of Wells Fargo & Company (WFC - Analyst Report); J.P. Morgan Securities LLC - part of JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM - Analyst Report) and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc.- part of Deutsche Bank AG (DB - Snapshot Report) acted as joint book running managers for the transaction.
The new facility consists of a $1.2 billion revolving line of credit and a $400 million term loan, which carries interest at 145 basis points over LIBOR and 165 basis points over LIBOR, respectively. The new facility is scheduled to mature in March 2018 and includes an accordion feature by virtue of which the company has a one-year extension option on the revolving line of credit.
The transaction provides additional liquidity and enhances financing flexibility. Moving forward, the strategic move could help seize favorable investment opportunities which in turn are expected to boost top-line growth.
During the third quarter of 2012, SL Green closed on a $175.0 million financing with a 1-year term and a 1-year extension option. This facility bears interest at 300 basis points over LIBOR.

This included ownership interests in 27.5 million square feet of commercial properties.
