BOSTON, July 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- STAG Industrial, Inc. (the "Company") (NYSE:STAG) today announced that it has closed a new $500 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility.

The new facility matures on January 15, 2023, with two six-month extension options, subject to certain conditions. The new facility bears a current interest rate of LIBOR plus a spread of 1.05% and a facility fee of 15 basis points based on the Company's current leverage level, a reduction in pricing of 10 and 5 basis points, respectively, compared to the Company's previous unsecured revolving facility. The new facility includes an accordion feature that allows the Company to increase the aggregate size of the facility to $1 billion, subject to certain conditions.

The new term loan matures on January 15, 2024, bears a current interest rate of LIBOR plus a spread of 1.20%, and features a twelve-month delayed-draw feature.
