Medical Properties: Entry Into A Material Definitive Agreement
The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing
On October 10, 2013, Medical
Properties Trust, Inc.s (the Company) operating partnership, MPT Operating Partnership, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (the Operating Partnership), and MPT Finance Corporation, a Delaware corporation and wholly
owned subsidiary of the Operating Partnership (MPT Finance and, together with the Operating Partnership, the Issuers), completed a public offering of 200 million aggregate principal amount of their 5.750% Senior
Notes due 2020 (the Notes). The Notes are governed by the terms of an Indenture, dated as of October 10, 2013 (the Base Indenture), among the Company, the Issuers, the subsidiaries named therein (the Subsidiary
Guarantors and, together with the Company, the Guarantors) and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee (the Trustee), as supplemented by a First Supplemental Indenture, dated as of October 10, 2013 (the
Supplemental Indenture and, together with the Base Indenture, the Indenture) among the Issuers, the Guarantors, the Trustee, Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, as paying agent (the Paying Agent), and Deutsche Bank
Luxembourg S.A., as registrar and transfer agent (the Registrar and Transfer Agent).
Interest on the Notes will be payable
semi-annually on April 1 and October 1 of each year, commencing on April 1, 2014. The Notes will pay interest in cash at a rate of 5.750% per year. The Notes mature on October 1, 2020. The Issuers may redeem some or all of
the Notes at any time prior to October 1, 2016 at a make-whole redemption price. On or after October 1, 2016, the Issuers may redeem some or all of the Notes at a premium that will decrease over time. In addition, at any time
and from time to time prior to October 1, 2016 the Issuers may redeem up to 35% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes using the proceeds of one or more equity offerings.
In the event of a Change of Control (as defined in the Indenture), each holder of the Notes may require the Issuers to repurchase some or all
of its Notes at a repurchase price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest to the date of purchase.
The Indenture contains restrictive covenants that, among other things, restrict the ability of the Company, the Issuers and their restricted
subsidiaries to: (i) incur debt; (ii) pay dividends and make distributions on, or redeem or repurchase, their capital stock; (iii) make certain investments or other restricted payments; (iv) sell assets; (v) create liens;
(vi) enter into transactions with affiliates; and (vii) merge, consolidate or transfer all or substantially all of their assets. The Company, the Issuers and their restricted subsidiaries are also required to maintain total unencumbered
assets of at least 150% of their collective unsecured debt. All of these covenants are subject to a number of important limitations and exceptions under the Indenture.
The Indenture also provides for customary events of default, including, but not limited to, the failure to make payments of interest or
premium, if any, on, or principal of, the Notes, the failure to comply with certain covenants and agreements specified in the Indenture for a period of time after notice has been provided, the acceleration of other indebtedness resulting from the
failure to pay principal on such other indebtedness prior to its maturity, and certain events of insolvency. If an Event of Default (as defined in the Indenture) occurs and is continuing, the Trustee or the holders of at least 25% in aggregate
principal amount of the outstanding Notes may declare the Notes immediately due and payable, except that an Event of Default resulting from certain events of insolvency with respect to an Issuer will automatically cause the Notes to become
immediately due and payable without any declaration or other act on the part of the Trustee or any holders of Notes.
The offering and
sale of the Notes was made pursuant to a free writing prospectus, preliminary prospectus supplement and final prospectus supplement pursuant to the Issuers and Guarantors effective registration statement on Form S-3 (File
No. 333-190543), each of which has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The Issuers expect to use the net
proceeds from the offering of Notes to fund the Companys previously announced acquisition of a portfolio of 11 rehabilitation facilities in the Federal Republic of Germany from RHM Klinik-und Altenheimbetriebe GmbH & Co. KG, which is
expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2013. The Issuers intend to use any remaining net proceeds for general corporate purposes. If the conditions to closing the acquisition (other than the payment of the acquisition consideration and other
than those conditions that by their terms are to be satisfied contemporaneously with closing) are not waived or satisfied on or prior to January 8, 2014, then the Issuers will be required to redeem the Notes at the aggregate offering price plus
accrued and unpaid interest up to, but excluding, the redemption date. Accordingly, pending closing of the acquisition, the gross proceeds from the offering were placed into an escrow account, together with additional amounts needed to redeem the
Notes at their aggregate offering price, plus accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes from the issue date up to, but excluding, the redemption date.
The summary of the foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the Indenture. Copies of the Base Indenture
and the Supplemental Indenture are attached hereto as Exhibits 4.1 and 4.2, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by
the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
