MILL VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Four Corners Property Trust, Inc. (FCPT) today announced that it has entered into agreements to issue $125 million of senior unsecured notes (the ?Notes?). The Notes consist of $75.0 million of notes with a ten-year term and priced at a fixed interest rate of 3.11%, and $50.0 million of notes with a nine-year term and priced at a fixed interest rate of 3.09%. The Notes are scheduled to fund on March 17, 2022, with the Company?s option to fund early with at least ten business days? notice.

In connection with this offering, the Company terminated interest rate swaps entered into previously to partially hedge the Treasury rate of this offering. This resulted in a gain for the Company, which will be amortized over the life of the Notes and effectively makes the Note?s all-in interest rate, after amortizing the gain, 3.07%.

With the issuance, the Company?s weighted-average debt maturity is approximately 5.7 years, excluding the Company?s unsecured revolving credit facility. Net proceeds from the offering will be used to reduce amounts outstanding under FCPT?s unsecured credit facility, and for general corporate purposes.

The offer and sale of the Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 as amended, and the Notes may not be offered or sold in the United States or to U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of any Notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
