VICI Properties Inc. Expands Borrowing Capacity With a New $3.5 Billion Unsecured Credit Facility

VICI Properties Inc. (NYSE: VICI) (“VICI Properties” or the “Company”), an experiential asset real estate investment trust, today announced the effectiveness of its new and undrawn $3.5 billion unsecured credit facility consisting of a four-year $2.5 billion senior unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”) and a three-year $1.0 billion senior unsecured delayed draw term loan (the “Delayed Draw Term Loan” together with the Revolving Credit Facility, the “Credit Facilities”). The Credit Facilities were substantially oversubscribed, with strong support from 17 new and incumbent financial institutions. Concurrently, the Company terminated its existing $1.0 billion undrawn secured revolving credit facility and all liens securing the Company’s existing credit facilities and related subsidiary guarantees were automatically released.

The Revolving Credit Facility matures on March 31, 2026 and can be extended for two successive six-month terms. Based on a pricing grid and the Company’s current credit ratings, the Revolving Credit Facility bears interest at SOFR plus 132.5 basis points, an improvement in pricing from 200 basis points over LIBOR under its prior secured revolving credit facility. The Delayed Draw Term Loan matures on March 31, 2025 and can be extended for two successive twelve-month terms. Based on a pricing grid and the Company’s current credit ratings, the Delayed Draw Term Loan bears interest at SOFR plus 160 basis points. In addition, the Credit Facilities require the payment of a facility fee ranging from 15.0 basis points to 37.5 basis points (depending on the Company’s credit ratings) of total commitments. The Company has an option to increase the Revolving Credit Facility by up to $1.0 billion and increase the Delayed Draw Term Loan by up to $1.0 billion in the aggregate, in each case, to the extent that any one or more lenders (from the syndicate or otherwise) agree to provide such additional credit extensions. The Credit Agreement is consistent with certain tax-related requirements related to security for the Company’s debt.

“We greatly appreciate the support of our bank group and their continued recognition of the Company’s disciplined approach to capital allocation,” said David Kieske, Executive Vice President and CFO. “We have completed the transformation of our balance sheet from fully secured at the time of our formation to fully unsecured today as we continue to migrate towards achieving an investment grade rating. This new unsecured revolving credit facility and delayed draw term loan significantly bolsters our balance sheet capacity and enhances our financial flexibility as we maintain our commitment to keep leverage between 5.0x and 5.5x on a net debt to EBITDA basis.”

Morgan Chase Bank, N.A. acting as the Administrative Agent and Wells Fargo Bank National Association, Bank of America National Association, and Citibank, N.A. acting as the Syndication Agents.
