Office Properties Income Trust Announces Additional Amendments to Private Exchange Offers Relating to Existing Unsecured Senior Notes

NEWTON, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Office Properties Income Trust (Nasdaq: OPI) (“OPI”) today announced certain amendments to its previously announced private exchange offers (as amended, the “Second Amended Exchange Offers”) to exchange its outstanding senior unsecured notes due 2025 (the “Existing 2025 Notes”), 2026 (the “Existing 2026 Notes”), 2027 (the “Existing 2027 Notes”) and 2031 (the “Existing 2031 Notes”, and together with the Existing 2025 Notes, Existing 2026 Notes and the Existing 2027 Notes, the “Existing Notes”) for new 9.000% Senior Secured Notes due 2029 (the “New Notes”) and related guarantees pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in an offering memorandum, dated as of May 1, 2024, as previously amended by OPI’s May 20, 2024 press release.


The Second Amended Exchange Offers (1) provide for updated Acceptance Priority Levels and Priority Amounts for Existing Notes and (2) extend the Expiration Time, but otherwise all terms and conditions remain the same as in the offering memorandum, dated as of May 1, 2024, as previously amended by OPI’s May 20, 2024 press release (collectively, the “Offering Memorandum”).

Amended Acceptance Priority Levels; Priority Amounts for Each Series

The Acceptance Priority Levels and Priority Amounts for Existing Notes are being modified as part of the Second Amended Exchange Offers. Each series of Existing Notes will take priority up to the Priority Amount of New Notes to be issued in exchange therefor as set forth in the Updated Priority Table below.

If the aggregate principal amount of Existing Notes of any series that participates in the exchange would, if fully accepted, result in the issuance of New Notes in excess of the Priority Amount for such series, then the amount of Existing Notes of such series participating in the exchange will be reduced on a pro rata basis. However, to the extent that New Notes issued in respect of any series of Existing Notes would be less than the Priority Amount for such series (the difference between the Priority Amount for such series and the New Notes issued in respect of such series, an “Undersubscribed New Notes Amount”), the Undersubscribed New Notes Amount will be allocated to holders of other series of Existing Notes, if any, that exceeded the applicable Priority Amount for such series in accordance with the assigned Acceptance Priority Levels shown in the Updated Priority Table below, with 1 being the highest and 4 being the lowest, subject to pro rata reduction.

The maximum aggregate principal amount of New Notes issued in connection with the Second Amended Exchange Offers remains $610 million.

Waiver of Minimum Tender Conditions

As previously announced on May 20, 2024, OPI waived the conditions requiring (i) the tender of at least $97.5 million in aggregate principal amount of the Existing 2025 Notes and (ii) the tender of a sufficient amount of Existing Notes such that at least $488 million in aggregate principal amount of New Notes will be issued on the Settlement Date.

Exchange Consideration

Under the terms of the Second Amended Exchange Offers, holders exchanging their Existing Notes remain entitled to receive the revised amounts of New Notes set forth in the Updated Priority Table, subject to pro rata reduction as described above. This consideration is the same as the Early Exchange Consideration (as defined in the offering memorandum, dated as of May 1, 2024) offered to holders who previously tendered prior to the May 14, 2024 early delivery time. Accordingly, any disclosure in the Offering Memorandum relating to the tax treatment of the Additional Early Exchange Consideration (as defined in offering memorandum, dated as of May 1, 2024) is no longer applicable.

Extension of Expiration Time

In connection with the amendments, OPI announced that the expiration time for the Second Amended Exchange Offers has been extended until 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 10, 2024 (such date and time, as may be extended, the “Amended Expiration Time”). The withdrawal deadline expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 14, 2024, and has not been extended.

Exchange Participation To-Date

According to information provided by D.F. King & Co, the information and exchange agent (the “Information and Exchange Agent”), as of 9:00 a.m., New York City time, on May 23, 2024, the amounts of Existing Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) by Eligible Holders remain the same as set forth in OPI’s May 20, 2024 press release.

No Registration

The offer and sale of the New Notes and related guarantees will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act“), or any state securities laws, and the New Notes and related guarantees will therefore be subject to restrictions on transferability and resale. OPI does not intend to register the sale of any of the New Notes and related guarantees under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and is not providing registration rights. The New Notes and related guarantees may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements and may not be transferred by any holder except in accordance with the restrictions described under “Transfer Restrictions” in the Offering Memorandum.

Eligible Holders

The Second Amended Exchange Offers are being made, and the New Notes and related guarantees are being offered and issued, only to holders who have certified to OPI that either they are (a) in the U.S. and are “qualified institutional buyers” (as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act) and are holders of the Existing Notes, or (b) outside the U.S. and are holders of the Existing Notes who are non-U.S. persons in reliance upon and in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act (such holders, “Eligible Holders”). Only Eligible Holders are authorized to receive or review the Offering Memorandum or to participate in the Second Amended Exchange Offers.
