WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LTC Properties, Inc. (NYSE: LTC) (“LTC” or the “Company”), a real estate investment trust that primarily invests in seniors housing and health care properties, today announced that it entered into a Note Purchase Agreement to issue $75 million aggregate principal amount of 3.66% senior unsecured notes (the “Notes”). The Notes have an average 10-year life, scheduled principal payments and will mature on May 17, 2033.
Year to date, the Company has invested approximately $113 million, sold assets at a net gain of approximately $38 million generating net proceeds of approximately $73 million. Of the Notes proceeds, approximately $41 million has been used for these investments which were initially funded through the Company’s existing unsecured revolving line of credit under the Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement’). The Company expects to use the remaining proceeds from the sale of the Notes to pay down its unsecured revolving line of credit.
Additionally, the Company amended its existing senior unsecured note agreements to conform with the covenants in the Credit Agreement.
“The favorable rate and proceeds from these Notes give us additional liquidity for further growth in 2022,” said Wendy Simpson, LTC’s Chairman and CEO. “In the face of rising interest rates, we continue to demonstrate balance sheet strength by terming out short term variable rate debt over the long term at an attractive fixed all-time low coupon for LTC.”
