Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), a leading global provider of carrier and cloud-neutral data center, colocation and interconnection solutions, announced today that its operating partnership, Digital Realty Trust, L.P. (the "operating partnership"), has priced an underwritten public offering of $350 million of additional 5.550% notes due 2028. The notes will be senior unsecured obligations of the operating partnership and will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by Digital Realty Trust, Inc. The notes will be issued as additional notes under the indenture pursuant to which the operating partnership previously issued $550 million of 5.550% notes due 2028 (the "initial notes"). The notes will be treated as a single series of securities with the initial notes under the indenture and will have the same CUSIP number as, and be fungible with, the initial notes. The notes will be issued at 99.208% of par value, with a coupon of 5.550% and will mature on January 15, 2028.
The company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering of the notes to temporarily repay borrowings outstanding under the operating partnership's global revolving credit facilities, acquire additional properties or businesses, fund development opportunities, invest in interest-bearing accounts and short-term, interest-bearing securities which are consistent with Digital Realty Trust, Inc.'s intention to qualify as a real estate investment trust for U.S. federal income tax purposes, and to provide for working capital and other general corporate purposes, including potentially for the repayment of other debt, or the redemption, repurchase, repayment or retirement of outstanding equity and debt securities, or a combination of the foregoing.
BofA Securities, Inc. and Citigroup Global Markets Inc. are the joint book-running managers for the offering of the notes.
The offering of the notes was made under an effective shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. A copy of the prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus relating to the offering of the notes will be filed with the SEC and will be available by visiting the EDGAR database on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.
