Neuberger Berman Investment Advisers LLC
NEW YORK, October 15, 2019 — Neuberger Berman Real Estate Securities Income Fund Inc. (NYSE American: NRO) (the “Fund”) announced today that it has successfully refinanced its debt leverage by entering into a new credit facility with a major unaffiliated lending institution. The Fund used the new credit facility to repay the outstanding borrowings under its prior credit facility. In connection with the new credit facility, the amount of leverage employed by the Fund has not changed.
The Fund's new credit facility should provide increased stability to the Fund's overall cost of leverage and meaningfully reduce the interest rates paid on the fixed-rate, term portion of the financing utilized by the Fund. As part of the Fund’s refinancing of its leverage, the Fund secured two fixed rate term loans, each for $30 million. One a three-year term paying an annualized interest rate of 2.72% and the other a five-year term paying an annualized interest rate of 2.96%.
