|Item 1.01.||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.|
On December 17, 2018, Agree Limited Partnership, a Delaware limited partnership (the “Borrower”), Agree Realty Corporation, a Maryland corporation (the “Company”), and certain indirect subsidiaries of the Borrower entered into a First Amendment to Amended and Restated Revolving Credit and Term Loan Agreement (the “First Amendment”) with PNC Bank, National Association (the “Agent”), as administrative agent, and Capital One, National Association, Regions Bank, SunTrust Bank, U.S. Bank National Association, Raymond James Bank, N.A. and Stifel Bank & Trust, as lenders (collectively with the Agent, the “2024 Term Loan Lenders”). The First Amendment amends the Amended and Restated Revolving Credit and Term Loan Agreement dated as of December 15, 2016.
The First Amendment sets forth a new pricing grid for the calculation of the applicable rate. In accordance with the new pricing grid, borrowings under the term loan bear interest at a rate per annum equal to, at the option of the Company, (i) LIBOR plus a margin that is based upon the Company's credit rating or (ii) the Base Rate plus a margin that is based upon the Company's credit rating. The margins for term loan range in amount from 0.85% to 1.65% for LIBOR-based loans and 0.00% to 0.65% for Base Rate-based loans, depending on the Company's credit rating.
The foregoing description of the First Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms of the First Amendment. A copy of the First Amendment will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as an exhibit to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K.
