SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. (“Spirit Realty”) (NYSE:SRC), a real estate investment trust that invests in single-tenant, operationally essential real estate, announced today that it has commenced concurrent underwritten public offerings of 23,000,000 shares of its common stock (or 26,450,000 shares if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares in full) and two series of convertible senior notes, with one series maturing May 15, 2019 in the aggregate principal amount of $350.0 million (or $402.5 million if the underwriters exercise their over-allotment option in full) and another series maturing May 15, 2021 in the aggregate principal amount of $200.0 million (or $230.0 million if the underwriters exercise their over-allotment option in full).
Interest on the notes will be payable semiannually in arrears on May 15 and November 15 of each year, beginning on November 15, 2014. The notes will be convertible, only during certain periods and subject to certain circumstances, into cash, shares of Spirit Realty’s common stock, or a combination of cash and shares of Spirit Realty’s common stock, at Spirit Realty’s election. Final terms of each series of the notes, including interest rates, conversion rates, conversion prices, and certain other terms of the offering, will be determined at the time of the pricing of the offerings.
Spirit Realty intends to use the net proceeds from the offerings to defease certain of its senior mortgage indebtedness, to repay the outstanding balance under its revolving credit facility, to fund potential future acquisitions and for general corporate purposes.
Morgan Stanley, BofA Merrill Lynch and Deutsche Bank Securities will act as joint book-running managers for the common stock offering, and Morgan Stanley, J.P. Morgan and RBC Capital Markets will act as joint book-running managers for the convertible senior notes offering.
The offerings are being made pursuant to Spirit Realty’s previously effective shelf registration statement. The common stock offering and the convertible senior notes offering are being conducted as separate public offerings by means of separate prospectus supplements, and neither the common stock offering nor the convertible senior notes offering will be conditioned upon consummation of the other.
