07/21/1998 Category: Financial

CRANFORD, NJ--July 21, 1998--Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE:CLI) today announced that the borrowing capacity under its unsecured credit facility has been expanded by $30 million to $900 million. Combined with the Company's existing $100 million credit facility with Prudential Realty Funding Corporation, Mack-Cali's revolving credit lines now total $1 billion.

The Company's unsecured credit facility with Chase Manhattan Bank, as administrative agent, Fleet National Bank, as syndication agent, and PNC Bank, NA, as documentation agent, has been expanded to include two additional lender banks, Bank LeumiUSA and Bank One, Arizona, NA, bringing the total number of participants to 27 major institutions. All other terms of the agreement remain unchanged.

The facility has a three-year term with a one-year extension option and carries an interest rate equal to LIBOR plus 110 basis points. Based upon the Company's achievement of an investment grade long-term unsecured debt rating, the interest rate on the new facility will be reduced, on a sliding scale, and a competitive bid option will become available.

With the completion of pending transactions, Mack-Cali will own or have interests in 250 properties, primarily office and office/flex buildings, totaling approximately 27.5 million square feet, serving over 2,300 tenants in 12 states and the District of Columbia.
