Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off- Balance Sheet
Arrangement of a Registrant.
On or about April 16, 2021, we and VNB New York, LLC, an affiliate of Valley National Bank, entered into a modification agreement with respect to our credit facility. The modification (i) increased the amount we are permitted to borrow, subject to compliance with borrowing base requirements and other conditions, from $10 million to $15 million, (ii) extended the term of the facility from April 18, 2021 to April 18, 2023 and (iii) increased the number of wholly-owned properties we are required to own from three to four and modified certain requirements with respect to such properties.
The facility is available for the (i) acquisition of, and investment in, multi-family properties, and (ii) working capital (including dividend payments) and operating expenses, is secured by certain cash accounts maintained by us at VNB, and bears an annual interest rate, which resets daily, of 50 basis points over the prime rate, with a floor of 4.25%. There is an unused facility fee of 0.25% per annum on the difference between the outstanding loan balance and maximum amount then available under the facility. We are required to maintain substantially all our bank accounts at VNB.
The terms of the facility include certain restrictions and covenants which, among other things, limit the incurrence of liens, and require that we maintain a minimum number of wholly-owned properties and require compliance with financial ratios relating to, among other things, the minimum amount of debt service coverage with respect to the properties (and amounts drawn on the facility) used in calculating the borrowing base. Net proceeds received from the sale, financing or refinancing of wholly-owned properties are generally required to be used to repay amounts outstanding under the facility.
