Tritax Big Box REIT has agreed a new five-year £500m secured debt facility with a syndicate made up of Barclays Bank, Helaba, Wells Fargo Bank, and N.A. and ING Real Estate Finance UK B.V. The facility will refinance £253.34m of the group's existing debt currently provided by Barclays Bank and Santander UK, and comprises a £320m term loan which will be drawn in full immediately, a further £80m term loan available to draw up until the first anniversary of the facility, and a £100m revolving credit facility which includes a £10m overdraft component. Tritax said the facility has an opening margin of 1.40% above three-month LIBOR and will reduce the group's average margin payable on its debt facilities, when fully drawn, from 1.77% to 1.42%. Colin Godfrey, partner of Tritax, said: 'This is a very attractive loan package that will immediately reduce the group's average cost of borrowing by 35 bps, extend our average unexpired loan term and bring the group's LTV ratio more in line with the group's stated medium term target.'
