SmartStop Self Storage REIT, Inc. (“SmartStop”) announced today that it exercised $200 million of its accordion (the “Accordion”) under its existing multi-currency credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) with a syndicate of banks led by KeyBank National Association, Wells Fargo, N.A., Citibank, N.A. and Bank of Montreal. The increased commitment was entirely on the revolving portion of the Credit Facility (the “Revolver”). The Credit Facility now consists of a $450 million Revolver and a $250 million term loan (the “Term Loan”) for a total commitment of $700 million. The Accordion was also amended to permit expansion up to $1.05 billion, subject to certain conditions. The other terms and conditions of the Credit Facility remain unchanged.
“This upsized facility allows us to execute our strategic growth plans both in the U.S. and across the border in Canada,” said H. Michael Schwartz, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of SmartStop. “With sizeable commitments from eleven existing as well as four new financial institutions, the syndicated facility was 2.3x oversubscribed, a testament to SmartStop as a company and our tremendous team, as well as the performance of our best-in-class self storage portfolio.”
KeyBanc Capital Markets, Inc. and KeyBank National Association served as Joint Lead Arranger and Administrative Agent for the Credit Facility. Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, Citibank, N.A. and BMO Capital Markets acted as joint lead arrangers and co-syndication agents for the Credit Facility.
