INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Simon, a global leader in the ownership of premier shopping, dining, entertainment and mixed-use destinations, announced today that it has amended and extended its $3.5 billion senior unsecured multi-currency revolving credit facility. The newly refinanced facility will initially mature on January 31, 2026 and can be extended for an additional year to January 31, 2027 at the Company's sole option. The facility provides for borrowings denominated in U.S. Dollars, Euro, Yen, Sterling, Canadian Dollars and Australian Dollars.
With this amendment, Simon is leading the corporate real estate loan market's transition away from LIBOR by indexing its revolving credit facilities to SOFR. Based upon the Company's current credit ratings, the interest rate on the new revolver for U.S. Dollar borrowings is SOFR plus 72.5 basis points (reduced from 82.5 basis points under the existing facility), plus a spread adjustment to account for the transition from LIBOR to SOFR. The terms of Simon's existing $4.0 billion revolving credit facility are expected to be conformed to the terms of the newly refinanced $3.5 billion facility.
"The newly refinanced credit facility enhances our already strong financial flexibility, and when combined with our existing $4.0 billion revolver, provides us with $7.5 billion of total revolving credit capacity. The closing of this market-leading facility is a continued endorsement and reaffirmation of the strength of our Company," said David Simon, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President.
The facilities are supported by a globally diverse lender group composed of 28 banks, led by JPMorgan Chase, BofA Securities, PNC Capital Markets, and Wells Fargo Securities who were Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners.
