BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE: MPW) announced today that its operating partnership, MPT Operating Partnership, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”), and MPT Finance Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Operating Partnership (“MPT Finance” and, together with the Operating Partnership, the “Issuers”), intend to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2027 (the “Notes”). The Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of the Issuers, guaranteed by the Company.
The Issuers intend to use the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes, together with cash on hand and other sources of debt capital, which may include borrowings under the Operating Partnership’s revolving credit facility, to finance the Company’s previously announced anticipated investment in a portfolio of ten acute care hospitals and one behavioral health facility currently operated by IASIS Healthcare for an aggregate purchase price and investment of approximately $1.4 billion and the related investment by a subsidiary of the Operating Partnership in approximately $100 million in minority preferred interests of Steward Health Care System LLC (collectively, the “Steward-IASIS Transactions”). If the Steward-IASIS Transactions are not completed or the Company elects not to consummate the Steward-IASIS Transactions, in either case, on or prior to 180 days after the closing date of the Notes offering, the Issuers will be required to redeem $500 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes in a special mandatory redemption. If such redemption were to occur, the Issuers intend to use the remaining proceeds to redeem all $350 million aggregate principal amount of their existing 6.375% senior notes due 2022, including premium and accrued and unpaid interest thereon, to repay borrowings under the Operating Partnership’s revolving credit facility and for general corporate purposes, which may include investing in additional healthcare properties.
