Drawbridge Secures $150 Million Revolving Credit Facility

San Francisco, CA – July 9, 2013 – Drawbridge Realty Trust, LLC announced that it has secured a $150 million revolving credit facility with Cleveland-based KeyBank National Association as the lead arranger and administrative agent. Co-participants on the credit facility include Wells Fargo Bank, National Association; US Bank, National Association; BMO Harris Bank, National Association; and City National Bank. The credit facility provides Drawbridge with efficient, dedicated, low cost debt capital for new acquisitions, and when combined with the recent $150 million equity investment from New York-based Almanac Realty Investors, it further enables the company to expand its 2 million square foot commercial real estate portfolio.

“We are obtaining this new source of capital at an optimal time,” said Mark Whiting, CEO of Drawbridge. “This is a powerful group of banks backing Drawbridge, and their support will be instrumental in our continued expansion in the Western U.S.”

“The team at Drawbridge has extensive real estate experience and a solid platform, which makes the company an ideal candidate for a revolving credit facility. We are excited about our excellent group of banks and Drawbridge’s future prospects,” said Josh Mayers, Vice President of KeyBank National Association.
