Alpine Income Property Trust Announces Sale of a Senior Portion of First Mortgage Loan Investment

Published

WINTER PARK, Fla., June 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alpine Income Property Trust, Inc. (NYSE: PINE) (the “Company” or “PINE”) announced today that it has sold a $13.6 million A-1 participation interest (the “Loan Participation Sale”) in its $23.4 million loan investment (the “Portfolio Loan”). The Portfolio Loan is secured by a first mortgage on a portfolio (the “Loan Collateral”) that currently consists of 39 retail properties. As part of the transaction, the Company had the Portfolio Loan rated by an independent rating agency whereby it received an A- rating.

PINE originated the Portfolio Loan in November 2023 as a $24.0 million loan at a rate of 8.75%, with the Loan Collateral consisting of 41 retail properties. As of June 3, 2024, two properties within the portfolio have been sold, resulting in principal paydowns that have reduced the overall loan balance to approximately $23.4 million. After adjusting for the Loan Participation Sale, PINE’s remaining investment in the Portfolio Loan is approximately $9.8 million at an interest rate of approximately 9.94%. The senior participation of $13.6 million will be repaid on a priority basis with proceeds from any sale of Loan Collateral properties.

“Proceeds from the sale of the senior portion on our first mortgage investment were used to pay down PINE’s revolving credit facility balance, and we continue to seek accretive reinvestment opportunities,” said John P. Albright, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
