PASADENA, Calif., July 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc. ("Alexandria" or the "Company") (NYSE: ARE) today announced that it has priced a public offering of $1,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 1.875% senior notes due 2033 (the "notes"). J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, Mizuho Securities USA LLC and RBC Capital Markets, LLC are acting as joint book-running managers in connection with the public offering, Evercore Group L.L.C., Scotia Capital (USA) Inc. and SMBC Nikko Securities America, Inc. are acting as senior co-managers in connection with the public offering, and Barclays Capital Inc., BBVA Securities Inc., BNP Paribas Securities Corp., Capital One Securities, Inc., Fifth Third Securities, Inc., PNC Capital Markets LLC, Regions Securities LLC, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Inc., TD Securities (USA) LLC and U.S. Bancorp Investments, Inc. are acting as co–managers in connection with the public offering.
The notes were priced at 99.812% of the principal amount with a yield to maturity of 1.892%. The notes will be unsecured obligations of the Company and fully and unconditionally guaranteed by Alexandria Real Estate Equities, L.P., an indirectly 100% owned subsidiary of the Company. The closing of the sale of the notes is expected to occur on or about August 5, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Company expects the net proceeds from the notes in the offering to be principally used to refinance any and all of the Company's outstanding 3.900% senior notes due 2023 (the "2023 notes"), pursuant to a tender offer announced separately today (the "tender offer"), by redemption or otherwise. The balance of net proceeds, if any, may be used to fund pending and recently completed acquisitions and construction of highly-leased development and redevelopment projects, with any remaining proceeds being held for general working capital and other corporate purposes, which may include the reduction of the outstanding balance on the Company's $2.2 billion unsecured senior line of credit, if any, the reduction of the outstanding balance on the Company's $750.0 million unsecured senior line of credit, if any, and the reduction of the outstanding indebtedness under the Company's commercial paper program, if any. To the extent that the tender offer is not consummated or not subscribed in full, the Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to finance a portion of the repurchase or redemption of some or all of the 2023 notes.
The notes are being offered pursuant to an effective registration statement on Form S-3 that was previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any of the Company's notes, nor shall there be any sale of the notes in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
