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

 

On October 10, 2019, LTC Properties, Inc. (the “Company”) sold $100.0 million aggregate principal amount of 3.85% senior unsecured notes due October 20, 2031 to affiliates and managed accounts of PGIM, Inc. (the investment management business of Prudential Financial, Inc., individually and collectively, “Prudential”). The Company expects to use the proceeds of the notes to pay down its unsecured revolving line of credit. The sale of notes was made pursuant to the Company’s Third Amended and Restated Note Purchase and Private Shelf Agreement, as amended (“Agreement”), with Prudential dated April 28, 2015.

 

The notes sold under the Agreement are subject to covenants that are substantially similar to the covenants in the Company’s existing credit facility, including requirements to maintain financial ratios such as debt to asset value ratios. Under the Agreement, maximum total indebtedness shall not exceed 50% of total asset value as defined in the Agreement. Borrowings under the Agreement are limited by reference to the value of unencumbered assets and maximum unsecured debt shall not exceed 60% of the unencumbered asset value as defined in the Agreement. Other similar covenants include limitations on the Company’s and its subsidiaries’ abilities to (i) incur liens, (ii) make investments, (iii) engage in mergers or consolidations or sell its properties, and (iv) enter agreements that restrict its subsidiaries’ ability to make dividend payments or loans to the Company. The Company’s assets, whether or not owned by subsidiaries, are subject to the Company’s obligations.

 

The foregoing description of the Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the provisions of the Agreement, which was filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, and to which a first amendment was filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 and a second amendment was filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K (File No. 1-11314) for the year ended December 31, 2016.
