CBL Properties (NYSE: CBL) today announced that it has completed a partial redemption of outstanding 10% Senior Secured Notes. The Notes were redeemed utilizing CBL's share of net proceeds from the previously announced new $65.0 million non-recourse loan.
"We are thrilled to close this new 10-year fixed-rate loan and complete the partial notes redemption," said Stephen Lebovitz, chief executive officer, CBL Properties. "The 62% loan-to-value, which is based on approximately a 7% cap rate, is an excellent third-party validation of the significant value underlying our asset base. We continue to make additional progress on our goal of redeeming the $335 million of remaining 10% Notes and look forward to making an announcement in the near term."
