Singapore-listed industrial REIT, Cambridge Industrial Trust (SGX:J91U), announced on 10 June that it has refinanced a SGD250 million club loan using proceeds from a medium term note issuance and a new SGD150 million unsecured bilateral loan facility.

As a result of the Refinancing, Cambridge Industrial Trust’s weighted average debt expiry has lengthened to 3.8 years while the all-in cost of debt stands at approximately 3.69% per annum with 96.5% of the interest rate exposure fixed for the next 3.7 years.
