Healthcare Realty Trust Inc. priced its underwritten public offering of 7,250,000 shares of common stock at $30.90 apiece to net about $215.1 million.
The expected amount from the offering scheduled to close on or about Aug. 14 excludes any proceeds from the exercise of the underwriters' 30-day option to buy up to an additional 1,087,500 shares of the trust, according to a release.
Healthcare Realty Trust plans to use proceeds from the offering to fund a portion of its recently announced property deals, to repay amounts outstanding under its unsecured credit facility due 2020, and for general corporate purposes.
The trust also noted that the $612.5 million plan to buy 15 medical office buildings in Atlanta is expected to be completed in tranches in the third and fourth quarters of 2017, subject to several closing conditions.
The common share offering is being made through an underwriting group led by J.P. Morgan, Barclays and Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, with all three also acting as joint book-running managers.
