GREENSBORO, N.C., Feb. 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. (NYSE:SKT) today announced that its operating partnership, Tanger Properties Limited Partnership, has closed on the $250 million seven-year unsecured bank term loan announced last week. Based on Tanger's current credit ratings, the loan bears interest at LIBOR plus 180 basis points. The facility matures February 2019, and is prepayable without penalty beginning February 2015.

"We are pleased to benefit from the current pricing advantage of the bank term loan market relative to the public bond market," stated Steven B. Tanger, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Proceeds from this facility will be used to partially repay our unsecured revolving lines of credit, increasing our available line capacity to more than $400 million. This loan rebalances our debt maturity schedule, while maintaining our staggered approach to maturities," he added.
