Agree Realty Announces Pricing of $450 Million of 5.625% Senior Unsecured Notes Due 2034

ROYAL OAK, Mich., May 6, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Agree Realty Corporation (NYSE: ADC) (the "Company") today announced that its operating partnership, Agree Limited Partnership (the "Operating Partnership"), priced a public offering of $450 million of its 5.625% senior unsecured notes due 2034 (the "Notes"). The public offering price for the Notes was 98.827% of the principal amount for an effective yield to maturity of 5.779%. The Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of the Operating Partnership, guaranteed by the Company and certain of their subsidiaries. This offering is expected to close on May 13, 2024, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

The Company expects to use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, including to reduce amounts outstanding under its senior unsecured revolving credit facility and to fund property acquisitions and development activity.

"This offering positions our Company for continued growth and bolsters our liquidity position to over $1.3 billion, providing us ample runway to execute on investment opportunities," said Peter Coughenour, Chief Financial Officer. "Our weighted-average debt maturity has been extended to approximately 7 years excluding the unsecured revolving credit facility, with no material debt maturities until 2028. In addition, the forward starting swaps that we entered into reduced the effective interest rate of the Notes and further demonstrate our prudent balance sheet management."
