JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel’s Property & Building (PTBL.TA) said on Sunday it had finalized a deal with JP Morgan (JPM.N) to refinance its borrowing on the HSBC Tower in New York in the amount of $400 million over 10 years.
The current financing on the Fifth Avenue building is about $240 million.
Property & Building, the real estate subsidiary of holding company IDB IDBH.TA, said the new agreement would generate cash flow of about $150 million.
It bought the building two years ago for around $350 million.
Last month, the company said it had signed a non-binding term sheet with a foreign bank to refinance its borrowing on the building.
Property & Building’s shares were up 1.5 percent in late morning trade in Tel Aviv. Its bond prices were up 0.6 to 0.7 percent.
