Certain of our properties, which had a net book value of approximately $139.2 million at March 31, 2024, serve as collateral for mortgages payable. As of March 31, 2024, we maintained unsecured lines of credit that provided for borrowings of up to $520.0 million. The unsecured lines of credit as of March 31, 2024 included a $20.0 million liquidity line and a $500.0 million syndicated line. The syndicated line may be increased up to $1.2 billion through an accordion feature in certain circumstances.

The unsecured lines of credit and senior unsecured notes include covenants that require the maintenance of certain ratios, including debt service coverage and leverage, and limit the payment of dividends such that dividends and distributions will not exceed FFO, as defined in the agreements, for the prior fiscal year on an annual basis or 95% of FFO on a cumulative basis. As of March 31, 2024, we believe we were in compliance with all of our debt covenants.

We have considered our short-term (one year or less from the date of filing these financial statements) liquidity needs and the adequacy of our estimated cash flows from operating activities and other financing sources to meet these needs. These other sources include but are not limited to: existing cash, ongoing relationships with certain financial institutions, our ability to sell debt or issue equity subject to market conditions and proceeds from the potential sale of non-core assets. We believe that we have access to the necessary financing to fund our short-term liquidity needs.
