Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Dec. 21, 2018 /CNW/ - H&R Real Estate Investment Trust ("H&R") (TSX: HR.UN) announced today that it has entered into a $250 million, committed seven-year senior unsecured, non-revolving term loan (the "Term Loan") with a Canadian chartered bank. The Term Loan will mature in January 2026.

H&R has, through an interest rate swap, fixed the Term Loan's interest payments at an all-in rate of 3.9% for the full seven year term. After the proceeds from the Term Loan have been used to repay existing bank indebtedness, H&R will have approximately $700 million of unused capacity under revolving credit facilities available with its existing lenders. H&R intends to use part of its available capacity under its credit facilities for general corporate purposes and to fund property development.
