October 31, 2017 | James Sprow | Blue Vault
On October 23, 2017, 14 subsidiaries of Phillips Edison Grocery Center Operating Partnership I, L.P. (“PECO I OP”), and The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, entered into 14 separate ten-year secured mortgage loans totaling $195 million. The Guardian Facility matures on November 1, 2027, and has a fixed interest rate of 3.52%. PECO I OP has the right to have the subsidiaries prepay in full, but not in part, the outstanding principal balance of the Guardian Facility at any time after November 30, 2020. The prepayment of the Guardian Facility, however, requires the payment of a prepayment premium equal to the greater of (i) 1.00% of the amount of principal outstanding, and (ii) the present value of all interest payable on the principal amount of the loan through the maturity date. The 14 loans are cross-defaulted and cross-collateralized through second liens on each of the properties. The Guardian Facility also requires PECO I OP to execute certain customary non-recourse carve-out guarantees and environmental indemnitees.
