|Item 1.01.||Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.|
On July 19, 2012, Invesco Mortgage Capital Inc., a Maryland corporation (the Company), IAS Operating Partnership LP and Invesco Advisers, Inc. entered into an Underwriting Agreement with Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, UBS Securities LLC and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, as representatives of the underwriters named therein (collectively, the Underwriters), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell to the Underwriters 5,400,000 shares of its 7.75% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (the Series A Preferred Stock) and also agreed to issue and sell to the Underwriters, at the option of the Underwriters, an aggregate of not more than 810,000 additional shares of the Series A Preferred Stock (the Securities). The Securities were registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the Commission) pursuant to the Companys shelf registration statement on Form S-3ASR (File No. 333-174598) (as the same may be amended and/or supplemented, the Registration Statement), under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act).
Pursuant to General Instruction F to the Commissions Form 8-K, a copy of the Underwriting Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on 8-K (this Report), and the information in the Underwriting Agreement is incorporated into this Item 1.01 by this reference.
The material terms of the Securities are described in the Companys prospectus supplement, dated July 19, 2012, and filed with the Commission on July 23, 2012 pursuant to Rule 424(b)(5) of the Securities Act, which relates to the offer and sale of the Securities and supplements the Companys prospectus, as filed with the Commission on May 27, 2011, contained in the Registration Statement.
|Item 3.03.||Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.|
On July 23, 2012, the Company filed Articles Supplementary (the Articles Supplementary) with the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation to designate 6,210,000 shares of the Companys authorized but unissued preferred stock, par value $0.01 per share, as shares of Series A Preferred Stock, with the powers, designations, preferences and other rights as set forth therein. The Articles Supplementary became effective upon filing on July 23, 2012.
The Articles Supplementary provide that the Company will pay, when and if authorized by the Board of Directors of the Company, cumulative cash dividends at the rate of 7.75% of the $25.00 per share liquidation preference (equivalent to $1.9375 per annum per share) on the Series A Preferred Stock, in arrears, on the 25th day of January, April, July and October of each year (provided that if any dividend payment date is not a business day, then the dividend which would otherwise have been payable on that dividend payment date may be paid on the next succeeding business day) from, and including, July 26, 2012.
The Series A Preferred Stock is not redeemable by the Company prior to July 26, 2017, except under circumstances intended to preserve the Companys qualification as a real estate investment trust (REIT) and except upon the occurrence of a Change of Control (as defined in the Articles Supplementary). On and after July 26, 2017, the Company may, at its option, upon not less than 30 nor more than 60 days written notice, redeem any or all of the shares of the Series A Preferred Stock at a redemption price of $25.00 per share, plus any accumulated and unpaid dividends to, but not including, the redemption date.
In addition, upon the occurrence of a Change of Control, the Company may, at its option, upon not less than 30 nor more than 60 days written notice, redeem any or all of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock, within 120 days after the first date on which such Change of Control occurred, at a redemption price of $25.00 per share, plus any accumulated and unpaid dividends to, but not including, the redemption date.
The Series A Preferred Stock has no stated maturity, is not subject to any sinking fund or mandatory redemption and will remain outstanding indefinitely unless repurchased or redeemed by the Company or converted into the Companys common stock in connection with a Change of Control by the holders of Series A Preferred Stock.
Upon the occurrence of a Change of Control, each holder of Series A Preferred Stock will have the right (subject to the Companys election to redeem the Series A Preferred Stock in whole or in part, as described above, prior to the Change of Control Conversion Date (as defined in the Articles Supplementary)) to convert some or all of the Series A Preferred Stock held by such holder on the Change of Control Conversion Date into a number of shares of the Companys common stock per share of Series A Preferred Stock determined by a formula, in each case, on the terms and subject to the conditions described in the Articles Supplementary, including provisions for the receipt, under specified circumstances, of alternative consideration.
There are restrictions on ownership of the Series A Preferred Stock intended to preserve the Companys qualification as a REIT. Except under limited circumstances, holders of the Series A Preferred Stock generally have no voting rights.
A copy of the Articles Supplementary and form of Series A Preferred Stock Certificate are filed as Exhibits 3.1 and 4.1, respectively, to this Report, and the information in the Articles Supplementary is incorporated into this Item 3.03 by this reference. The description of the terms of the Articles Supplementary in this Item 3.03 is qualified in its entirety by reference to Exhibit 3.1.
