Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Creation of a Direct


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On December 18, 2013, American Campus Communities, Inc., as Parent Guarantor (the "Company"), and American Campus Communities Operating Partnership LP, the Company's operating partnership, as Borrower (the "Operating Partnership") entered into a Fourth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the "Agreement") with the banks, financial institutions and other institutional lenders listed on the signature pages thereof as the lenders (the "Lenders"), KeyBank National Association for itself as a Lender, as administrative agent and as the initial issuing bank and as the swing line bank, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as syndication agent, and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and KeyBanc Capital Markets Inc. as joint lead arrangers. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Operating Partnership has a $500 million senior unsecured revolving line of credit (the "Revolver"), a $350 million senior unsecured term loan (the "Term Loan Facility I") and a $250 million senior unsecured term loan (the "Term Loan Facility II"). The $1.1 billion aggregate Revolver, Term Loan Facility I and Term Loan Facility II may be expanded by an additional $500 million upon the satisfaction of certain conditions. The Revolver matures on March 1, 2018, which may be extended at the Operating Partnership's option for one 12-month period subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions. The Term Loan Facility I matures on January 10, 2017, which may be extended at the Operating Partnership's option for two 12-month periods subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions. The Term Loan Facility II matures on March 1, 2019.

The Agreement increases the size of the Operating Partnership's prior $800 million facility, which was comprised of a $450 million senior unsecured revolving facility and $350 million senior unsecured term loan, and extends the maturity date of each.

Each loan bears interest at a variable rate, at the Company's option, based upon a base rate or one-, two-, three- or six-month LIBOR, plus, in each case, a spread based upon the Operating Partnership's credit ratings, which spreads are more favorable than those contained in the prior facility.

The Company has agreed to guarantee the Operating Partnership's obligations under Agreement, and to the extent other unsecured creditors receive guaranties from certain subsidiaries of the Operating Partnership in the future, such subsidiaries are obligated to provide like kind guaranties to the Lenders.

The amended and restated facility is available to, among other things, fund future property development, acquisitions, and other working capital needs, and general corporate purposes. The Operating Partnership intends to use the proceeds from the Term Loan Facility II to repay outstanding amounts on the Revolver.

The description herein of the Agreement is qualified in its entirety, and the terms therein are incorporated herein, by reference to the Agreement filed as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.
