Refinancing of debt facility and reduction of debt-servicing costs

18 May 2018

KCR Residential REIT plc ("KCR") is pleased to announce that it has redeemed its twelve-month secured debt of £1.9 million from private equity lenders.  KCR's wholly owned subsidiary, K&C (Osprey) Limited, has successfully refinanced this debt with a new debt facility of £1.95 million (net of costs), secured against Heathside, one of its freehold properties in north London. The new facility, which has a term of 36 months, carries an interest rate of 5.5 per cent, compared with 12 per cent for the previous facility.

Dominic White, chief executive, commented: "We are pleased that, as the size of KCR's portfolio grows, debt-servicing costs are being reduced, thus maximising net revenue streams from our portfolio of residential rental properties."
