HERZLIYA, Israel, November 24, 2017 – Optibase Ltd. (NASDAQ: OBAS) , the Company or Optibase is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Optibase Real Estate Miami, LLC the (“Borrower”) recently refinanced 25 residential apartment units in Miami, Florida (the “Property”) with City National Bank of Florida (the “Lender”).

Under the refinancing, the existing loan on the Property from City National Bank, with a principal balance of $ 9.4 million Dollars, was replaced with a new loan in the principal amount of $9.4 million Dollars (the “Loan”).  The Loan bears interest at an annual floating rate equal to the 30-Day LIBOR plus 2.65% which may be increased to 30-Day LIBOR plus 3.25% if Borrower and Optibase, Inc. fail to maintain depository accounts with the Lender totaling 1.5 million Dollars. The principal of the Loan is amortized on a monthly basis with principal payments of approximately 19,000 Dollars per month plus accrued interest until the loan matures on July 8, 2020 when all remaining principal and interest become due and payable. The Loan is secured by a senior mortgage over 25 residential apartment units located in Miami that are owned by the Borrower and is guaranteed by Optibase Inc. Prepayments of principal are allowed without penalty.
The covenants under the new financing agreement are substantially the same as under the previous loan on the Property. For additional information on the covenants, please see section 5.B to the Company’s annual report on Form 20-F for the year 2016.

The refinancing of the loan will reduce the Company’s current debt as the majority of the loan is considered as long term debt.

For additional information on the existing loan, please see section 5.B to the Company’s annual report on Form 20-F for the year 2016.
