NEW YORK, Oct. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthcare Trust, Inc. ("HTI" or the "Company") today announced that the Company successfully completed its previously announced $80 million Series B Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Stock Offering (the "Series B Preferred"). The Series B Preferred has a coupon rate of 7.125% and received an investment grade rating of BBB- by Egan-Jones Ratings Company.

"Obtaining an investment grade rating on the Series B Preferred is an accomplishment that reflects the high quality of the HTI portfolio and is a testament to the hardworking team that continues to build, optimize, operate and manage our medical office buildings and seniors housing facilities. This offering further diversifies HTI's balance sheet and builds awareness of HTI in the market."
The Company used the net proceeds from this offering to repay amounts outstanding under the Company's revolving credit facility as required thereunder. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the revolving credit facility, the Company may then draw on the revolving credit facility to borrow any amounts so repaid for general corporate purposes, including purchases of additional properties.
