Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation entered into an agreement with Wells Fargo Bank to increase the size of its existing financing facility from $225 million to $325 million. In addition, the initial maturity of the facility was extended to December 14, 2017 along with two one-year extensions, each of which may be exercised at the company’s discretion, subject to certain conditions. Existing pricing on this facility remains in effect.

Over the past twelve months, the company has increased, renewed or extended six of its funding facilities totaling more than $695 million. In addition, ACRE closed a $155 million secured term loan facility in December 2015. As of June 30, 2016, the company's secured funding facilities and term loan agreements totaled more than $1.2 billion, an increase of approximately $200 million compared to a year ago.

“This latest agreement is a continuation of our progress in expanding our available sources of financing,” commented Tae-Sik Yoon, Chief Financial Officer of Ares Commercial Real Estate Corporation. “We appreciate Wells Fargo’s continued confidence in us and its support in expanding the capacity and extending the term of our facility at a time when the market for new investment opportunities is highly attractive.”
