LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 16, 2012-- Kilroy Realty Corporation (NYSE: KRC) today announced that it has priced its public offering of 4,000,000 shares of 6.875% Series G Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock at $25.00 per share, plus accrued dividends, if any. The offering is expected to close on Tuesday, March 27, 2012, subject to customary closing conditions. Dividends on the Series G Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock will be paid quarterly in arrears on the 15th day of each February, May, August and November, commencing May 15, 2012 at a rate of 6.875% annually of the stated liquidation value of $25.00 per share, which is equivalent to $1.71875 per share on an annualized basis.
The underwriters for the public offering have been granted a 30-day option to purchase up to 600,000 additional shares of Series G Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock to cover overallotments, if any. The Company intends to file an application to list the Series G Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock on the New York Stock Exchange. If the application is approved, trading of the Series G Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock on the New York Stock Exchange is expected to begin within 30 days after the initial issuance of the Series G Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock.
Wells Fargo Securities, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, Barclays Capital, and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC are acting as joint book-running managers. The estimated net proceeds from the offering are expected to be approximately $96.4 million, after deducting the underwriting discount and our estimated expenses, but before giving effect to any exercise of the underwriters' overallotment option.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to redeem a portion of the outstanding shares of its 7.80% Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock and 7.50% Series F Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock and for other general corporate purposes, which may include acquiring properties and repaying outstanding indebtedness, including borrowings under our operating partnership's unsecured revolving credit facility. The Company plans to redeem all of its outstanding shares of Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock and Series F Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock on April 16, 2012 for an aggregate redemption price of approximately $126.5 million, plus accrued dividends. Accordingly, because the net proceeds the Company receives from this offering will not be sufficient to redeem all of the outstanding shares of its Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock and Series F Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, and because the Company may elect to apply a portion of such net proceeds for purposes other than such redemption, the Company plans to finance the remaining portion of the redemption price of the Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock and Series F Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock with cash on hand or borrowings under the credit facility, or both.
This offering is being made pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement and prospectus and related prospectus supplement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities nor will there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
