Industrial Logistics Properties Trust Secures $650M Refinancing for Hawaiian Portfolio
OAHU, HAWAII — Industrial Logistics Properties Trust (NASDAQ: ILPT) has secured a $650 million mortgage loan secured by an industrial portfolio in Oahu. The portfolio includes 186 properties, which total approximately 9.6 million square feet.
The 10-year loan applies to approximately 57 percent of ILPT’s total owned square footage in Hawaii. As of Dec. 31, 2018, the average remaining lease term for these properties was more than 14 years and the occupancy was nearly 100 percent.
“We are pleased to term out our floating rate debt with attractive, long-term, fixed-rate debt and to demonstrate the tremendous value of these unique Hawaiian assets,” says John Murray, CEO of Industrial Logistics Properties Trust. “While the underlying assets had a net book value of less than $500 million at year end 2018, this loan provides us with $650 million of capital to fund value-enhancing external growth opportunities.”
Terms of the non-amortizing financing included a fixed interest rate of 4.3 percent. Morgan Stanley, Citi, UBS and J.P. Morgan provided the capital. Sullivan & Worcester LLP provided legal counsel to Industrial Logistics Properties Trust in the transaction.
ILPT stock closed at $20.79 per share on Tuesday, Jan. 29, down from $22.47 one year ago.
