PREIT Lenders Grant Extension of Time to Achieve Out-of-Court Restructuring
PREIT (NYSE: PEI), a leading operator of diverse retail and experiential destinations, today reports that, as a result of progress made in negotiations to date, it has entered into an amendment to the previously announced Restructuring Support Agreement (“RSA”) that grants an extension of time through October 28, 2020 to achieve the support of 100% of its lenders to the terms of the debt restructuring provided under the RSA, providing the runway to achieve an out-of-court restructuring.
Joseph F. Coradino, PREIT Chairman and CEO, commented:
“PREIT continues to work constructively with its lenders and the extension provides more time to continue ongoing discussions. We are encouraged by the progress made to date and are hopeful that the Company can move forward to implement its previously announced restructuring agreement out-of-court. Under the terms of the proposed agreement, PREIT would secure additional financial flexibility to continue competing effectively, meeting our obligations, and providing our tenants, customers and communities with the high-quality experience they expect at our properties.”
