Netherlands and Luxembourg Refinancing

 

On June 11, 2019, Global Net Lease, Inc. (the “Company”), through certain wholly owned subsidiaries (the “Obligors”) that directly or indirectly own all three of the Company’s properties in the Netherlands and Luxembourg (the “Properties”), entered into a facility agreement with Landesbank Hessen-Thüringen Girozentrale, and on June 12, 2019, borrowed €120.0 million (the “Loan”) secured by mortgages on each of the Properties and all of the other assets of the Obligors. Payment of principal and interest on the Loan is also guaranteed by the Obligors.

 

The Loan bears interest at a fixed rate of 1.383% and matures on June 11, 2024. The Loan is interest-only, with the principal due at maturity.

 

At the closing of the Loan, approximately €80.3 million was used to repay all outstanding indebtedness encumbering two of the Properties. The remaining proceeds totaling approximately €38.7 million, after costs and fees related to the Loan, are available for working capital and general corporate purposes.

 

The Loan may be prepaid, in whole or in part, at any time, and mandatory prepayments are required to be paid in connection with dispositions of the Properties and other customary circumstances. Any prepayment prior to the fourth anniversary is generally subject to a prepayment premium.
