Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. and Spirit Realty, L.P. Commence Exchange Offer of Spirit Realty, L.P.'s 4.450% Notes due 2026 for Registered Notes

DALLAS, April 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. (SRC) ("Spirit" or the "Company") announced today that, together with its operating partnership subsidiary, Spirit Realty, L.P. (the "Operating Partnership"), it has commenced a registered exchange offer to exchange up to $300.0 million aggregate principal amount of the Operating Partnership's 4.450% Notes due 2026, which have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Exchange Notes"), for any and all of the Operating Partnership's outstanding 4.450% Notes due 2026, which were issued in a private placement (the "Private Notes").  The Private Notes and the Exchange Notes are the senior unsecured obligations of the Operating Partnership and are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by the Company.

The sole purpose of the exchange offer is to fulfill the obligations of the Company and the Operating Partnership with respect to the registration of the Private Notes and related guarantee.  Pursuant to a registration rights agreement entered into by the Company and the Operating Partnership in connection with the sale of the Private Notes, the Company and the Operating Partnership agreed to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission a registration statement relating to the exchange offer pursuant to which the Exchange Notes, containing substantially identical terms to the Private Notes, would be offered in exchange for Private Notes that are tendered by the holders of those notes.

Any Private Notes not tendered for exchange in the exchange offer will remain outstanding and continue to accrue interest but will not retain any rights under the registration rights agreement except in limited circumstances.

The exchange offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 12, 2017, unless extended.  Private Notes tendered pursuant to the exchange offer may be withdrawn at any time prior to the expiration date by following the procedures set forth in the exchange offer prospectus dated April 14, 2017.

The terms of the exchange offer are contained in the exchange offer prospectus.  Requests for assistance or for copies of the exchange offer prospectus should be directed to U.S. Bank National Association, Attn.: Specialized Finance, 60 Livingston Ave-EP-MN-WS2N, St. Paul, MN 55107-2292.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or exchange any securities or a solicitation of an offer to buy or exchange any securities.  The exchange offer will be made only by means of the written exchange offer prospectus.
