As previously announced, on December 1, 2020, Ladder Capital Finance Holdings LLLP and Ladder Capital Finance Corporation (together, the “Issuers”), subsidiaries of Ladder Capital Corp, elected to redeem $100 million aggregate principal amount of their outstanding 5.875% Senior Notes due 2021 (the “Notes”), in accordance with the terms of the indenture governing the Notes. On December 28, 2020, the Issuers delivered to holders of the Notes (i) a notice of partial redemption to redeem an additional $75 million of Notes (the “Partial Redemption”) and (ii) a notice of conditional full redemption to redeem any Notes outstanding after the Partial Redemption (the “Conditional Redemption” and, together with the Partial Redemption, the “Redemptions”), each in accordance with the terms of the indenture governing the Notes. The Conditional Redemption is conditioned on the completion by the Issuers of a senior notes offering with gross proceeds of not less than $400 million (the “Condition”).


The Notes will be redeemed on January 27, 2020 (the “Redemption Date”) pursuant to the Partial Redemption, and, subject to the satisfaction of the Condition, the Conditional Redemption, at a redemption price equal to 100.00% of the aggregate principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the Redemption Date. Following the Redemptions (assuming the satisfaction of the Condition), none of the Notes will remain outstanding and the indenture governing the Notes will be satisfied and discharged in accordance with its terms.
