During 2016, we entered into a seven year, $150.0 million unsecured term loan (“2016 Term Loan”) maturing on July 21, 2023 with a deferred draw period of up to six months commencing on July 22, 2016. The 2016 Term Loan bears interest at a rate of either LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.50% to 2.45% or the base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.5% to 1.45% (in each case depending upon Washington REIT’s credit rating). The base rate is the highest of the administrative agent’s prime rate, the federal funds rate plus 0.50% and one-month LIBOR plus 1.0%. The 2016 Term Loan currently has an interest rate of one month LIBOR plus 165 basis points, based on Washington REIT’s current unsecured debt ratings. We borrowed $100.0 million on the term loan in the fourth quarter of 2016, and borrowed the remaining $50.0 million during the first quarter of 2017. We have also previously entered into forward interest rate swaps commencing on March 31, 2017 to effectively fix the interest rate on the 2016 Term Loan at 2.9% (see note 7).
