Realogy Corporation (the “company”) announced recently that it and its subsidiaries have entered into agreements to amend and extend the existing Apple Ridge Funding LLC securitization program utilized by the company’s relocation services operating unit, Cartus Corporation. Under the terms of the agreements, the program will be extended until December 11, 2013.
The extension of the program involves:
– The issuance of a new series of secured variable funding notes issued by the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Apple Ridge Funding LLC (the “Notes”) to various commercial paper conduits and one financial institution and
– The redemption of notes issued in 2007. The notes will bear interest based on variable commercial paper rates plus a spread or at the one-month LIBOR rate plus a spread, and have a maximum borrowing capacity of $400 million, based on the amount of the eligible assets being financed at any given point in time. The borrowing costs (inclusive of interest and lender fees) under the amended facility are expected to be approximately 100 basis points higher than under the existing facility. The closing of the transaction was expected to occur on December 16, 2011, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities law and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
