Dublin-listed property investor, Hibernia REIT, today said it has entered into a E100 million three year revolving credit facility with Bank of Ireland Corporate Banking.
The funding was secured against a corporate level debenture, it said.
Hibernia now has debt facilities totalling E134 million related to its portfolio and cash and un-drawn committed facilities of more than E140 million.
Tom Edwards-Moss, Chief Financial Officer of WK Nowlan REIT Management Limited, the Investment Manager, said the firm maintained a cautious approach to credit.
"We are very pleased to have entered our first corporate debt facility, which provides us with flexible funding at attractive rates with which to invest in and grow our portfolio. We remain committed to a conservative debt strategy, with our loan to value not exceeding 40pc at incurrence, well within the limits of the Irish REIT Regime," he said.
