Detailed Loan Transactions

In a strategic financial maneuver, Logistic Properties secured a new $60 million, 15-year mortgage loan for the La Verbena Logistics Park with Banco BAC San José, S.A. (“BAC”). The loan features an interest rate of three-month SOFR plus 2.00% and a 20-year amortization profile.

The funds were utilized to repay the existing $48.05 million, 10-year mortgage loan with BAC, which carried an interest rate of three-month SOFR plus 3.78% and a 15-year amortization profile. The remaining proceeds from this new loan are intended for reinvestment in other properties within LPA’s portfolio and the development of new properties.

Additionally, Logistic Properties entered into a $60 million, 10-year mortgage loan for the Lima Sur Logistics Park with Banco BBVA Peru. At maturity, a 35% balloon payment is payable on this sustainability-linked loan, which is structured into two tranches. The fixed interest rate on Tranche A, valued at $48.7 million, is 8.40%, while the fixed interest rate on Tranche B, valued at $11.3 million, is 8.50%.

For both tranches, a 20 basis point discount is offered, given that the company satisfies specific sustainability criteria. The International Finance Corporation (“IFC”) loan amount was settled using the revenues from Tranche A, while the funds from Tranche B would be reinvested and utilized to expand LPA’s property platform.
