Alexandria Real Estate Equities Inc. launched an underwritten public offering of three tranches of senior notes, subject to market conditions.
Two of the tranches will be new issues of securities, and the third tranche will become part of the same series as the company's outstanding 4.0% senior notes due 2024, of which $450 million aggregate principal amount was originally issued in June 2018.
Net proceeds from the two new tranches are marked for funding certain eligible green projects, and net proceeds from the new 2024 notes will be used to reduce the outstanding balance on the company's unsecured senior line of credit, with any remaining proceeds to fund green projects.
The green projects, including development, redevelopment or tenant improvement projects, are those that have achieved or are expected to achieve gold or platinum Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certifications.
Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, Citigroup Global Markets Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and SMBC Nikko Securities America Inc. will act as joint book-running managers in connection with the public offering.
