SAN FRANCISCO,– Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), a leading global provider of 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 $900 million of 3.600% notes due 2029. 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 were issued at 99.823% of par value, with a coupon of 3.600% and will mature on July 1, 2029.
The company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering of the notes, together with borrowings under the operating partnership’s global revolving credit facility or cash on hand, to refinance all of Digital Realty Trust, L.P.’s outstanding 3.400% Notes due 2020 and 5.250% Notes due 2021 (collectively, the “Existing Notes”) pursuant to a tender offer announced separately today, by redemption or otherwise. Pending the allocation of an amount equal to the net proceeds from the offering of the notes to refinancing the Existing Notes, all or a portion of the net proceeds from the offering of the notes may be used to temporarily repay borrowings outstanding under the operating partnership’s global revolving credit facility and Yen revolving credit facility, acquire additional properties or businesses, fund development opportunities, and to provide for working capital and other general corporate purposes, including potentially for the repayment of other debt or the repurchase, redemption or retirement of other outstanding debt securities, or a combination of the foregoing.
J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Mizuho Securities USA LLC and MUFG Securities Americas 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.
