Modiv, an internally managed real estate investment trust that acquires, owns and manages single-tenant net-lease real estate properties, exercised the accordion feature of its credit facility on Oct. 21, increasing the credit facility to $400 million.
The credit facility is now comprised of a $150 million revolving credit facility and a $250 million term loan. The credit facility includes an updated accordion option that allows Modiv to request additional revolver and term loan lender commitments up to a total of $750 million. The maturities for the company’s revolver and term loan remain unchanged, with the revolver’s maturity in January 2026 with options to extend for a total of 12 months and the term loan’s maturity in January 2027.
KeyBanc Capital Markets, Truist Securities and Huntington National Bank acted as joint lead arrangers for the expanded credit facility, while KeyBank acted as administrative agent.
“We appreciate and value the strong support shown by our bank group. With the closing of the expanded credit facility, we now have meaningful liquidity to accelerate our investment strategy focused on net-leased industrial manufacturing properties,” Aaron Halfacre, CEO of Modiv, said. “Our diligent investment process and strength in identifying accretive acquisitions drives our confidence in delivering long-term value for our shareholders and we are encouraged by the opportunities we are seeing in the market.”
The credit facility is priced on a leverage-based grid that fluctuates based on Modiv’s actual leverage ratio at the end of the prior quarter. Based on the company’s leverage ratio of 38% as of the quarter ended June 30, the interest rate for the revolver is SOFR plus 155 basis points plus a 10-basis point SOFR index adjustment and the interest rate on the revolver was 4.65% on Sept. 29. Based on its current balance sheet, approximately 97% of Modiv’s indebtedness holds a fixed interest rate.
On Oct. 26, Modiv purchased a five-year swap at 3.44% on an additional $100 million of its term loan that will result in a fixed interest rate of 5.04% on additional draws under the expanded term loan when the company’s leverage ratio is less than or equal to 40%. As part of the swap transaction, Modiv sold a one-time option to terminate the swap on Dec. 31, 2024, which reduced the swap rate. Under the credit facility, the interest rate will continue to vary based on the company’s leverage ratio.
