Newmark Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: NMRK) (“Newmark” or “the Company”), a leading full-service commercial real estate services business, today announced terms of its amended credit agreement.
On March 10, 2022, Newmark entered into an agreement to amend the terms of its senior unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”), increasing its size to $600 million and extending the maturity date to March 10, 2025. Borrowings under the Credit Facility will bear an interest rate, at the Company’s option, based either on
- Term SOFR for applicable interest periods as selected by the Company, plus an applicable margin, or
- A base rate to be determined by the Administrative Agent plus an applicable margin.
The applicable margin is initially expected to be 1.50% per annum with respect to Term SOFR borrowings under (a) above and 0.50% with respect to base rate borrowings under (b) above. The applicable margin under both (a) and (b) above will vary depending upon the Company’s credit rating. The new agreement amends and improves upon the terms of the Newmark’s previous $465 million revolving credit facility maturing on February 26, 2023, which had an interest rate of LIBOR plus 1.75% per annum immediately prior to the new agreement.
BofA Securities, Inc. acted as the active lead arranger and bookrunner for the Credit Facility, while Bank of America, N.A. will continue to serve as the Administrative Agent. Additional banks named as joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners for the Credit Facility are Capital One, National Association; Citizens Bank, N.A.; Fifth Third Bank, National Association; Goldman Sachs Bank USA; KeyBank National Association; PNC Capital Markets LLC; Regions Capital Markets, a division of Regions Bank; and U.S. Bank National Association. Other banks participating in the Credit Facility are BMO Harris Bank N.A.; Comerica Bank; UMB Bank, N.A.; Wells Fargo Bank, National Association; Associated Bank, N.A.; and BankUnited, N.A.
