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

As previously disclosed, Sunstone Hotel Investors, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Amended Credit Agreement”), dated October 17, 2018, amongst the Company, Sunstone Hotel Partnership, LLC, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, Bank of America, N.A., JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., PNC Bank, National Association, U.S. Bank National Association and certain other lenders named therein. The Amended Credit Agreement provides for a $500 million unsecured revolving credit facility and term loan facilities with an aggregate balance of $185 million, for a total of $685 million. The revolving portion of the Amended Credit Agreement matures on April 14, 2023, but may be extended twice, by six (6) months for each extension, to April 2024, upon the payment of applicable fees and satisfaction of certain customary conditions. The Company also has the right to increase the revolving portion of the Amended Credit Agreement, or to add term loans, in an amount up to $115 million, for an aggregate facility of $800 million, subject in each case, to finding lenders that are willing to provide such increase or such term loans. The material terms of the Amended Credit Agreement are described in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 18, 2018, which description is incorporated by reference herein.

On March 26, 2020, the Company borrowed an aggregate $300 million under the revolving portion of the Amended Credit Agreement as a precautionary measure to increase its cash position and preserve financial flexibility in light of the challenging business environment related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Following such borrowing, the Company has $200 million of capacity remaining available for borrowing under the unsecured revolving credit facility. Pursuant to the terms of the Amended Credit Agreement, interest is based upon LIBOR plus an applicable margin determined by the Company’s ratio of net indebtedness to EBITDA. At the time of the borrowing, the applicable margin was 1.40%.
