GMT Refinancing

Wednesday, 27 March 2013

Goodman (NZ) Limited, the manager of Goodman Property Trust (“GMT” or “Trust”) is pleased to announce that the Trust’s bank facilities have been consolidated and refinanced.

The debt restructuring and refinancing, amalgamating three previous standalone facilities, increases the size of Trust’s main bank facility to $600 million and extends the tenor of its total debt facilities out to 3.2 years.

The new expanded facility incorporates market leading terms and highly competitive pricing.

Goodman (NZ) Limited's Chief Financial Officer, Andy Eakin, said, “One of the benefits of the Highbrook acquisitions undertaken in December 2012 was the greater flexibility it provided in managing the Trust’s sources of capital. We are extremely pleased with the significant savings that have been achieved by consolidating the debt of the Highbrook and Show Place investments.”
