Additional banks in the syndicate of lenders include Bank of America, Union Bank, JPMorgan Chase, U.S. Bank, Wells Fargo, PNC Bank and Deutsche Bank A.G.

The additional commitments have increased the total amount available to the company from $120 million to $265 million, subject to the terms and conditions of the facility.

The company currently has $100.9 million drawn on the facility at an effective rate of 2.45%, and will use the increased capacity of the credit facility to finance the acquisition of well-occupied grocery-anchored neighborhood shopping centers having a mix of national, credit-worthy retailers selling necessity-based goods and services in strong demographic markets throughout the United States.
