The Company's outstanding debt as of March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017 is summarized as follows (dollars in thousands):
Credit Facility Increase
On January 29, 2018, pursuant to a full exercise by the Company's operating partnership of its remaining expansion option and a partial exercise of its Additional Expansion Option (defined below) under its credit agreement dated as of May 6, 2016, the Company's operating partnership, as borrower, certain of its subsidiaries that are party to the credit agreement, as subsidiary guarantors, and the Company entered into a third increase agreement and amendment (the "Increase Agreement") with a syndicated group of lenders to increase the total borrowing capacity under the Company's credit agreement by adding an additional tranche D term loan facility in an aggregate outstanding principal amount of $125.0 million, for a total credit agreement of over $1.0 billion consisting of the following components: (i) a $400.0 million revolving line of credit (the "Revolver"), (ii) a tranche A term loan facility (the "Term Loan A"), which provides for a total borrowing commitment of up to $235.0 million, (iii) a tranche B term loan facility (the "Term Loan B"), which provides for a total borrowing commitment of up to $155.0 million, (iv) a tranche C term loan facility (the "Term Loan C"), which provides for a total borrowing commitment of up to $105.0 million and (iv) a tranche D term loan facility (the "Term Loan D" and together with the Revolver, the Term Loan A, Term Loan B and Term Loan C, the "credit facility"), which provides for a total borrowing commitment of up to $125.0 million. The Company renewed its expansion option under the credit facility to permit an additional $300.0 million of revolving commitments and/or term loans (the "Additional Expansion Option"), which was partially exercised in the amount of $20.0 million in connection with Term Loan D. If exercised in full, the Additional Expansion Option would provide for a total borrowing capacity under the credit facility of $1.3 billion.
The Term Loan D matures on January 29, 2023. It is not subject to any scheduled reduction or amortization payment prior to maturity. Interest rates applicable to loans under Term Loan D are determined based on a 1, 2, 3 or 6 month LIBOR period (as elected by the Company at the beginning of any applicable interest period) plus an applicable margin, or a base rate, determined by the greatest of the Key Bank prime rate, the federal funds rate plus 0.50% or one month LIBOR plus 1.00%, plus an applicable margin. The applicable margins for Term Loan D are leverage based and range from 1.30% to 1.85% for LIBOR loans and 0.30% to 0.85% for base rate loans; provided that after such time as the Company achieves an investment grade rating from at least two rating agencies, the Company may elect (but is not required to elect) that Term Loan D is subject to the rating based on applicable margins ranging from 0.90% to 1.75% for LIBOR Loans and 0.00% to 0.75% for base rate loans. Term Loan D may be prepaid at any time without penalty.
Other than the increases and amendments related to Term Loan D and the Additional Expansion Option described above, the Increase Agreement did not impact or amend the credit facility's previously disclosed terms, including its covenants, events of default, or terms of payment. For a summary of the Company's financial covenants and additional detail regarding the Company's credit facility, term loan facility, and fixed rate mortgages payable, please see Note 8 to the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
As of March 31, 2018, the Company had outstanding letters of credit totaling $4.7 million and would have had the capacity to borrow remaining Revolver commitments of $322.7 million while remaining in compliance with the credit facility's financial covenants. At March 31, 2018, the Company was in compliance with all such covenants.
