Macerich Provides Financing Activity Update

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Macerich (NYSE: MAC), one of the nation's leading owners, operators and developers of major retail and mixed-use properties in top markets, today announced significant financing transaction progress.

Key details include:

  • On January 3, Macerich closed a $370 million, five-year refinance of the previous $363 million of combined loans that formerly encumbered Green Acres Mall and Green Acres Commons in Valley Stream, NY, both of which were maturing during the first quarter of 2023. The new loan bears a fixed interest rate of 5.90%, is interest only during the entire loan term and matures on January 6, 2028.
  • In early December 2022, Macerich closed a three-year extension of its $300 million loan on Santa Monica Place in Santa Monica, CA. The extended loan carries a floating rate of LIBOR + 1.48% and now matures on December 9, 2025, including extension options.
  • The Company's joint venture that owns Scottsdale Fashion Square in Scottsdale, AZ is in the process of refinancing the existing $405 million mortgage loan. The new five-year, fixed-rate loan is expected to be $700 million, which would generate nearly $150 million of incremental liquidity for Macerich. This loan is expected to close during the first quarter of 2023.

"We are pleased with our continued progress addressing our debt maturities. Through a combination of loan extensions and refinancings, Macerich continues to effectively transact on its secured loan portfolio," said Scott Kingsmore, Macerich's Senior Executive Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer. "These three transactions totaling just under $1.4 billion speak to the strength of our longstanding credit relationships that we've cultivated over the years, our access to capital and to the quality of our Class A regional town center portfolio."
