The company said the $13 million mortgage on the headquarters resulted in additional gross proceeds of $2.1 million. The mortgage is for 10 years with a fixed interest rate of 5.8 percent and a maturity date of August 2020. The previous rate was 7.1 percent. The Tampa facility has a fixed rate of 5.75 percent, down from the previous rate of 6.25 percent. The loan matures in June 2016.
