|Debt Disclosure [Abstract]|
The Company's debt is summarized as follows (dollars in thousands):
On April 1, 2014 (as amended in July 2014), the Company entered into a $425.0 million senior secured credit facility (the "credit facility") with a syndicated group of lenders consisting of seven financial institutions. Borrowings under the credit facility are collateralized by first priority security interests in certain self storage properties. The credit facility consists of two components:
The credit facility is a full-recourse loan, meaning that the Company's obligations for repayment extend beyond the assets that collateralize the loan. The terms of the credit facility limit the Company's ability to make distributions, incur additional debt, and acquire or sell significant assets. The credit facility requires compliance with certain financial and nonfinancial covenants, including a maximum total leverage ratio, a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio, and minimum net worth. At March 31, 2015, we were in compliance with all such covenants.
As discussed in Note 12, upon completion of our initial public offering, our secured credit facility became unsecured. In addition, we used a portion of the proceeds received from our initial public offering to pay down $96.3 million of the outstanding balance of the revolving line of credit.
Unsecured Term Loan
On April 1, 2014, the Company entered into a senior unsecured term loan (the "unsecured term loan") with a syndicated group of lenders consisting of three financial institutions. The unsecured term loan provides for maximum borrowings of $50.0 million. Under the unsecured term loan, the Company must comply with restrictions on its tangible net worth, as defined in the loan agreement. Amounts borrowed may be repaid but not re-borrowed. The loan originally matured on April 1, 2015 but was extended until October 1, 2015 in exchange for a prescribed fee of $250,000. Payments are limited to interest only, to be paid on a monthly basis. The outstanding principal balance bears interest at one-month LIBOR plus 5.00% or the base rate plus 4.00%. As of March 31, 2015, the Company had borrowed $50.0 million and elected the alternative of an interest rate of one-month LIBOR plus 5.00%. Financial covenants under the unsecured term loan match those contained in the credit facility. There is a mandatory repayment of this loan upon the occurrence of a capital event (such as completion of the Company's initial public offering) as defined in the loan agreement, and following the completion of our initial public offering, we used a portion of the proceeds received to repay the $50.0 million unsecured term loan, as discussed in Note 12.
Related Party Note
During the three months ended March 31, 2015, in connection with the acquisition of a self storage property owned in a DownREIT partnership, the Company entered into a bridge loan agreement for $4.1 million payable to principals of the PRO that contributed the property. The note bears interest at a fixed rate of 3.30%, and matures 30 days following the completion of certain administrative matters that will permit the inclusion of the property in the Company's credit facility borrowing base calculation.
Fixed Rate Mortgages Payable
Fixed rate mortgages mature at various dates through November 2024, and have effective interest rates that range from 2.20% to 5.15%. Principal and interest are generally payable monthly or in monthly interest-only payments with balloon payments due at maturity. As discussed in Note 12, we assumed fixed rate mortgages with $28.6 million of outstanding principal balances at the time of acquisition in connection with 11 of the properties acquired as part of the formation transactions.
Variable Rate Mortgages Payable
Variable rate mortgages mature at various dates through October 2015, and have effective interest rates that range from 2.43% to 9.65%. Principal and interest on this debt is generally payable in monthly interest-only payments with balloon payments due at maturity. As discussed in Note 12, following the completion of our initial public offering, we used a portion of the net proceeds from our initial public offering to repay all $83.5 million of the variable rate mortgages outstanding as of March 31, 2015.
The entire disclosure for information about short-term and long-term debt arrangements, which includes amounts of borrowings under each line of credit, note payable, commercial paper issue, bonds indenture, debenture issue, own-share lending arrangements and any other contractual agreement to repay funds, and about the underlying arrangements, rationale for a classification as long-term, including repayment terms, interest rates, collateral provided, restrictions on use of assets and activities, whether or not in compliance with debt covenants, and other matters important to users of the financial statements, such as the effects of refinancing and noncompliance with debt covenants.
