Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On March 2, 2023, Sachem Capital Corp. (the “Company”) entered into Credit and Security Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”), with Needham Bank, a Massachusetts co-operative bank, as the administrative agent (the “Administrative Agent”) for the lenders party thereto (the “Lenders”) with respect to a $45 million revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”). Under the Credit Agreement, the Company also has the right to request an increase in the size of the Credit Facility up to $75 million, subject to certain conditions, including the approval of the Lenders. Loans under the Credit Facility accrue interest at the greater of (i) the annual rate of interest equal to the “prime rate,” as published in the “Money Rates” column of The Wall Street Journal minus one-quarter of one percent (0.25%), and (ii) four and one-half percent (4.50%). All amounts borrowed under the Credit Facility are secured by a first priority lien on virtually all Company’s assets. Assets excluded from the lien include real estate owned by the Company (other than real estate acquired pursuant to foreclosure) and mortgages sold under the Company’s Master Repurchase Agreement with Churchill MRA Funding I LLC, entered into in July 2021. The Credit Facility expires March 2, 2026 but the Company has a right to extend the term for one year upon the consent of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, which consent cannot be unreasonably withheld, and so long as it is not in default and satisfies certain other conditions. All outstanding revolving loans and accrued but unpaid interest are due and payable on the expiration date. The Company may terminate the Credit Facility at any time without premium or penalty by delivering written notice to the Administrative Agent at least ten (10) days prior to the proposed date of termination.


The foregoing descriptions of the Credit Agreement and the terms of the Credit Facility do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such documents, including the exhibits thereto, copies of which are attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibits 10.1 and 4.1, respectively, and incorporated herein by reference.


Item 2.03.Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.


The information regarding the Credit Facility and the Credit Agreement set forth in Item 1.01 above, is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 8.01. Other Events.


On February 28, 2023, the Company refinanced its then existing $1.4 million adjustable-rate mortgage loan, obtained in November 2021 from New Haven Bank with a new $1.66 million adjustable-rate mortgage loan from New Haven Bank. The new loan accrues interest at an initial rate of 5.75% per annum for the first 60 months. The interest rate will be adjusted on each of March 1, 2028 and March 1, 2033 to the then published 5-year Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston Classic Advance Rate, plus 1.75%. Beginning on April 1, 2023 and through March 1, 2038, principal and interest will be due and payable on a monthly basis. All payments under the new loan are amortized based on a 20-year amortization schedule. The unpaid principal amount of the loan and all accrued and unpaid interest are due and payable in full on March 1, 2038. The new loan is a non-recourse obligation, secured primarily by a first mortgage lien on the properties located 698 Main Street, Branford, Connecticut and 568 East Main Street, Branford, Connecticut, which are owned by the Company.
