Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

The description of the Loan Agreement (as defined below) set forth under Item 2.03 is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.

Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an Off-Balance Entry Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant

Securitization Transaction

On September 29, 2017, Starwood Waypoint Homes (the “Company”) completed its seventh securitization transaction, which involved the issuance and sale in a private offering of single-family rental pass-through certificates (the “Certificates”) issued by a trust (the “Trust”) established by a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The Certificates represent beneficial ownership interests in a Loan (defined below) secured by a portfolio of 4,443 single-family homes operated as rental properties (collectively, the “Properties”) contributed from the Company’s portfolio of single-family homes to a newly-formed special purpose entity indirectly owned by the Company. Net proceeds from the offering to third parties were distributed to the Company’s operating partnership, Starwood Waypoint Homes Partnership, L.P., after payment of transaction expenses. The operating partnership intends to use the net proceeds to repay certain of the Company’s existing debt and for general corporate purposes.

The Company sold $732.7 million of Certificates at a weighted average blended interest rate of LIBOR plus 156 basis points to investors and retained approximately 5% of each class of Certificates totaling $38.6 million.

As part of the securitization transaction, various subsidiaries of the Company, through both distributions and contributions, transferred the Properties to Borrower (as defined below), an indirect subsidiary of the Company, which then entered into the Loan Agreement. The Loan (as defined below) was deposited into the Trust in exchange for the Certificates. The Certificates were sold to qualified institutional buyers and non-U.S. persons through the placement agents retained for the transaction pursuant to the exemptions from registration provided by Rule 144A and Regulation S, respectively, under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

Loan Agreement

On September 29, 2017, SWH 2017-1 Borrower, LP, a Delaware limited liability partnership (“Borrower”), entered into a loan agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), with German American Capital Corporation as lender (“Lender”). Pursuant to the Loan Agreement, Borrower borrowed $771,240,000 (the “Loan”) from Lender. The Loan is a two-year, floating rate loan, composed of six floating rate components, each of which is computed monthly based on LIBOR plus a fixed component spread. Interest on the Loan is payable monthly. As part of certain lender requirements in connection with the securitization transaction described above, Borrower entered into an interest rate cap agreement for the initial two-year term of the Loan, with a LIBOR-based strike rate such that the debt service coverage ratio calculated under the Loan Agreement will not be less than 1.20x.


For purposes of computing, among other things, interest accrued on the Loan, the Loan is divided into six components designated as “Component A,” “Component B,” “Component C,” “Component D,” “Component E” and “Component F”. The following table shows the initial principal amount and the interest rate for each Component A through F.

Component

Initial Principal
Balance

Regular Component
Interest Rate

A

$408,137,000

One-Month LIBOR + 1.0196%

B

$84,443,000

C

E

$92,887,000

One-Month LIBOR + 2.6696%

F

$56,295,000

One-Month LIBOR + 3.4696%

The Loan is secured by first priority mortgages on the Properties, which are owned by the Borrower. The Loan is also secured by a first priority pledge of the equity interests of the Borrower. The initial maturity date of the Loan is October 9, 2019 (the “Initial Maturity Date”). Borrower has the option to extend the Loan beyond the Initial Maturity Date for two successive one-year terms and one final 15-month extension, provided that there is no event of default under the Loan Agreement on each maturity date, Borrower obtains an acceptable replacement interest rate cap agreement and Borrower complies with the other terms set forth in the Loan Agreement. The Loan Agreement requires that Borrower comply with various affirmative and negative covenants that are customary for loans of this type, including limitations on indebtedness Borrower can incur, limitations on sales and dispositions of the Properties, required maintenance of specified cash reserves, and various restrictions on the use of cash generated by the operations of the Properties while the Loan is outstanding. The Loan Agreement also includes customary events of default, the occurrence of which would allow the Lender accelerate payment of all amounts outstanding thereunder and to require that all of the rental income associated with the Properties be required to prepay the Loan.

In connection with the Loan, the Company provided the Lender with a limited recourse guaranty under which it agreed to indemnify the Lender against specified losses due to fraud, misrepresentation, misapplication of funds, physical waste, breaches of specified representations, warranties and covenants, as well as a guaranty of the entire amount of the Loan, not to exceed the greater of (i) the lesser of $35,000,000 and the outstanding principal balance of the Loan and all other obligations under the Loan, and (ii) thirty-five percent of the outstanding principal balance of the Loan, in the event that the Borrower files insolvency proceedings or violates certain covenants that result in its being substantively consolidated with any other entity that is subject to a bankruptcy proceeding.

This description of the Loan Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Loan Agreement, filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, which is incorporated herein by reference.

2.2.3Determination of Interest Rate

.

(a)Subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 2.2.3, the Components of the Loan shall be a LIBOR Loan.  In the event that Servicer shall have reasonably determined that by reason of circumstances affecting the interbank Eurodollar market LIBOR cannot be determined as provided in the definition of LIBOR as set forth herein, then Servicer shall

- 56 -

 


forthwith give notice thereof by electronic mail of such fact, confirmed in writing, to Borrower at least one (1) Business Day prior to the Determination Date.  If such notice is given, the Components of the Loan shall be converted, from and after the first day of the next succeeding Interest Period, to a Prime Rate Loan bearing interest based on the Prime Rate in effect on the related Determination Date.

(b)Notwithstanding the foregoing if at any time prior to the Loan being converted from a LIBOR Loan to a Prime Rate Loan in accordance with Section 2.2.3(a) above or Section 2.2.3(d) below, the Servicer reasonably determines that an Alternative Index becomes generally accepted as a successor interest rate index to LIBOR in commercial mortgaged backed real estate finance transactions, then the Loan shall be convered from a LIBOR Loan to an Alternative Base Rate Loan.  If the Loan is to be converted to an Alternative Base Rate Loan pursuant to the previous sentence, the Servicer shall give notice of such determination in writing to Borrower and any certificate administrator at least one (1) day prior to the next succeeding Interest Determination Date.  If such notice is given, the Loan shall be converted, as of the first day of the next succeeding Interest Period, to an Alternative Base Rate Loan; provided that if the Servicer reasonably determines that LIBOR can still be determined as provided in the definition of LIBOR as set forth herein then such conversion to an Alternative Base Rate Loan shall be postponed until the earliest to occur of (i) the first day of the first Interest Period of the next succeesing Extension Term or (ii) the first day of an Interest Period for which the Servicer reasonably determines that by reason of circumstances affecting the interbank Eurodollar market LIBOR cannot be determined as provided in the definition of LIBOR as set forth herein.  If Lender does not deliver such notice prior to the Loan being converted from a LIBOR Loan to a Prime Rate Loan in accordance with Section 2.2.3(a) above or Section 2.2.3(d) below, then the Loan shall not thereafter be convereted into an Alterantive Base Rate Loan and Section 2.2.3(a) above and/or Section 2.2.3(d) below shall be the sole methods by which a LIBOR Loan may be converted.

(c)If, pursuant to the terms of Section 2.2.3(a), the Components of Loan have been converted to a Prime Rate Loan but thereafter LIBOR can again be determined as provided in the definition of LIBOR as set forth herein, Servicer may give notice thereof to Borrower and convert the Prime Rate Loan back to a LIBOR Loan by delivering to Borrower notice of such conversion no later than 11:00 a.m. (New York City Time), one (1) Business Day prior to the next succeeding Determination Date.  If such notice is given, the Components of the Loan shall be converted, from and after the first day of the next succeeding Interest Period, to a LIBOR Loan bearing interest based on LIBOR in effect on the related Determination Date.  Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, in no event shall Borrower have the right to elect to convert a LIBOR Loan to a Prime Rate Loan.

(d)If any requirement of law or any change therein or in the interpretation or application thereof, in any case after the date hereof, shall hereafter make it unlawful for Lender to make or maintain a LIBOR Loan as contemplated hereunder, (i) the obligation of Lender hereunder to make a LIBOR Loan or to convert a Prime Rate Loan to a LIBOR Loan shall be canceled forthwith and (ii) any outstanding LIBOR Loan shall be converted automatically to an Alternative Base Rate Loan if an Alternative Base Rate then exists, as reasonably determined by Servicer, or otherwise to a Prime Rate Loan on the first day of the next succeeding Interest

- 57 -

 


Period or within such earlier period as required by law.  Borrower hereby agrees promptly to pay Lender, upon demand, any additional amounts necessary to compensate Lender for any out-of-pocket costs reasonably incurred by Lender in making any conversion in accordance with this Agreement, including, without limitation, any interest or fees payable by Lender to lenders of funds obtained by it in order to make or maintain the LIBOR Loan hereunder.  Lender’s notice of such costs, as certified to Borrower, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(e)In the event that any change in any requirement of law or in the interpretation or application thereof, or compliance by Lender with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) hereafter issued from any central bank or other Governmental Authority:

(i)shall hereafter impose, modify or hold applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan or similar requirement against assets held by, or deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, advances or loans by, or other credit extended by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of Lender which is not otherwise included in the determination of LIBOR hereunder;

(ii)shall hereafter have the effect of reducing the rate of return on Lender’s capital as a consequence of its obligations hereunder to a level below that which Lender could have achieved but for such adoption, change or compliance (taking into consideration Lender’s policies with respect to capital adequacy) by any amount deemed by Lender to be material;

(iii)shall hereafter subject Lender to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and (C) Connection Income Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto; or

(iv)shall hereafter impose on Lender any other condition and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to Lender of making, renewing or maintaining loans or extensions of credit or to reduce any amount receivable hereunder;

then, in any such case, Borrower shall promptly pay Lender, upon demand, any additional amounts necessary to compensate Lender for such additional cost or reduced amount receivable which Lender deems to be material as determined by Lender in its reasonable discretion.  If Lender becomes entitled to claim any additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.2.3(d), Lender shall provide Borrower with not less than thirty (30) days written notice specifying in reasonable detail the event by reason of which it has become so entitled and the additional amount required to fully compensate Lender for such additional cost or reduced amount.  A certificate as to any additional costs or amounts payable pursuant to the foregoing sentence submitted by Lender to Borrower shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.  Subject to Section 2.7, this Section 2.2.3(d) shall survive payment of the Debt and the satisfaction of all other Obligations.

(f)Borrower agrees to indemnify Lender and to hold Lender harmless from any loss or expense which Lender sustains or incurs as a consequence of (i) any default by Borrower in

- 58 -

 


payment of the principal of or interest on a LIBOR Loan, including, without limitation, any such loss or expense arising from interest or fees payable by Lender to lenders of funds obtained by it in order to maintain a LIBOR Loan hereunder, (ii) any prepayment (whether voluntary or mandatory) of the LIBOR Loan on a day that (A) is not a Payment Date or (B) is a Payment Date if Borrower did not give the prior written notice of such prepayment required pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, including, without limitation, such loss or expense arising from interest or fees payable by Lender to lenders of funds obtained by it in order to maintain the LIBOR Loan hereunder and (iii) the conversion pursuant to the terms hereof of the LIBOR Loan to the Prime Rate Loan on a date other than the Payment Date, including, without limitation, such loss or expenses arising from interest or fees payable by Lender to lenders of funds obtained by it in order to maintain a LIBOR Loan hereunder (the amounts referred to in clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) are herein referred to collectively as the “Breakage Costs”); provided, however, Borrower shall not indemnify Lender from any loss or expense arising from Lender’s willful misconduct or gross negligence.  This provision shall survive payment of the Note in full and the satisfaction of all other obligations of Borrower under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

2.2.4Additional Costs

.  Lender will use reasonable efforts (consistent with legal and regulatory restrictions) to maintain the availability of the LIBOR Loan and to avoid or reduce any increased or additional costs payable by Borrower under Section 2.2.3, including, if requested by Borrower, a transfer or assignment of the Loan to a branch, office or Affiliate of Lender in another jurisdiction, or a redesignation of its lending office with respect to the Loan, in order to maintain the availability of the LIBOR Loan or to avoid or reduce such increased or additional costs, provided that the transfer or assignment or redesignation (a) would not result in any additional costs, expenses or risk to Lender that are not reimbursed by Borrower and (b) would not be disadvantageous in any other respect to Lender (including the effect on any Securitization) as determined by Lender in its reasonable discretion.

2.2.5Default Rate

.  In the event that, and for so long as, any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Component Outstanding Principal Balance of each of the Components and, to the extent not prohibited by applicable law, all other portions of the Debt, shall accrue interest at the Default Rate, calculated from the date such payment was due or, if later, such Default shall have occurred, without regard to any grace or cure periods contained herein.  Interest at the Default Rate shall be paid immediately upon demand, which demand may be made as frequently as Lender shall elect, to the extent not prohibited by applicable law.

2.2.6Usury Savings

.  This Agreement, the Note and the other Loan Documents are subject to the express condition that at no time shall Borrower be obligated or required to pay interest on the principal balance of the Loan at a rate which could subject Lender to either civil or criminal liability as a result of being in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate.  If, by the terms of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, Borrower is at any time required or obligated to pay interest on the principal balance due hereunder at a rate in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate, the Interest Rate or the Default Rate, as the case may be, shall be deemed to be immediately reduced to the Maximum Legal Rate and all previous payments in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate shall be deemed to have been payments in reduction of principal and not on account of the interest due hereunder.  All sums paid or agreed to be paid to Lender for the use, forbearance, or detention of the sums due under the Loan, shall, to the extent permitted by

- 59 -

 


applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated, and spread throughout the full stated term of the Loan until payment in full so that the rate or amount of interest on account of the Loan does not exceed the Maximum Legal Rate of interest from time to time in effect and applicable to the Loan for so long as the Loan is outstanding.

(b)Borrower shall comply with all of its obligations under the terms and provisions of the Interest Rate Cap Agreement.  All amounts paid by the Acceptable Counterparty under the Interest Rate Cap Agreement to Borrower shall be deposited immediately into the Cash Management Account or into such account as specified by Lender.  Borrower shall take all actions reasonably requested by Lender to enforce Lender’s rights under the Interest Rate Cap Agreement in the event of a default by the Acceptable Counterparty and shall not waive, amend or otherwise modify any of its rights thereunder.

(c)In the event of any downgrade, withdrawal or qualification of the rating of the Acceptable Counterparty by any Approved Rating Agency such that it ceases to qualify as an Acceptable Counterparty, unless the Counterparty shall have posted collateral on terms acceptable to each Approved Rating Agency, Borrower shall replace the Interest Rate Cap Agreement with a Replacement Interest Rate Cap Agreement not later than ten (10) Business Days following receipt of notice from Lender of such downgrade, withdrawal or qualification.  In the event that the Counterparty is downgraded (i) below BBB+ by S&P or (ii) below “Baa1” by Moody’s, a Replacement Interest Rate Cap Agreement shall be required regardless of the posting of collateral.
