Issued Notice of Redemption of $350 Million of Senior Unsecured Notes Maturing in 2024
Office Properties Income Trust (NASDAQ:OPI) today announced that it has consummated the offering of $300 million aggregate principal amount of 9.000% senior secured notes due 2029. The notes are guaranteed by certain of OPI's subsidiaries and secured by first-priority liens on 17 office properties with a gross carrying value of approximately $574 million and a pledge of the equity interests of the subsidiary guarantors. The net proceeds from this transaction, after initial purchaser discounts and offering costs, are approximately $272 million and will be used, together with borrowings under OPI's secured revolving credit facility, to redeem OPI's 4.250% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2024 (the "2024 Notes").
In connection with the offering, OPI issued a notice of early redemption for the 2024 Notes at a redemption price equal to the principal amount of $350 million, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the date of redemption. The redemption date will be March 9, 2024 and the redemption price will be paid on March 11, 2024. The notice of redemption is conditioned upon OPI borrowing under its secured revolving credit facility on or prior to the redemption date.
B. Riley Securities, Barclays, BMO Capital Markets, BofA Securities, Citigroup, PNC Capital Markets LLC and UBS Investment Bank acted as joint book-running managers for the offering.
The new notes have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or any state securities laws or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration under the Securities Act or any applicable state securities laws. The new notes were offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers under Rule 144A under the Securities Act and outside the United States only to non-U.S. investors in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction. This press release also does not constitute a notice of redemption with respect to the redemption of OPI's 4.250% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2024.
