ORLANDO, Fla., December 15, 2016 – National Retail Properties, Inc. (NYSE: NNN) (the “Company”) reported today that it has closed on its previously announced issuance of $350,000,000 of 3.60% senior unsecured notes due 2026 (“2026 Notes”). The 2026 Notes were offered at 98.897% of the principal amount with a yield to maturity of 3.733%.
In June 2016, the Company entered into two forward starting swaps with a total notional amount of $180,000,000 to partially hedge the risk of changes in interest-related cash outflows associated with this issuance of long-term debt. On December 7, 2016, the Company received $13,352,000 in connection with the termination and settlement of these swaps. These swap proceeds will be amortized as a reduction to interest expense using the effective interest method over the next 10 years, thereby reducing the effective yield of the 2026 Notes to 3.280%.
