Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On March 31, 2010, BioMed Realty, L.P., the operating partnership subsidiary of BioMed Realty Trust, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a first amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Company’s first amended and restated secured term loan agreement with KeyBank National Association, as administrative agent, and certain other lenders (the “Term Loan”).
In connection with the Amendment, the Company voluntarily prepaid $100.0 million of the $250.0 million previously outstanding under the Term Loan, reducing the outstanding balance under the Term Loan to $150.0 million. The Amendment reduced the total availability under the Term Loan to $150.0 million, corresponding to the current outstanding balance, and amended the terms of the Term Loan to, among other things, release certain of the Company’s subject properties which were pledged as security under the Term Loan as a result of the partial prepayment, and provide revised conditions for the sale and release of other subject properties. The Company made the partial prepayment by utilizing existing capacity under its $720.0 million unsecured line of credit. At December 31, 2009, the Company’s unsecured line of credit bore interest at a rate of LIBOR plus a spread of 110 basis points, and the Company’s Term Loan bore interest at a rate of LIBOR plus a spread of 165 basis points.
The foregoing description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Amendment, which is filed as an exhibit to this report and incorporated herein by reference.
