The material terms of the Securities are described in the Companys prospectus supplement, dated August 9, 2017, and filed with the Commission on August 11, 2017 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 contained the Registration Statement, as filed with the Commission on March 29, 2016.
|Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.
On August 11, 2017, the Company filed Articles Supplementary (the Articles Supplementary) with the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation to designate 11,500,000 shares of the Companys authorized but unissued preferred stock, par value $0.01 per share, as shares of Series C Preferred Stock, with the powers, designations, preferences and other rights as set forth therein. The Articles Supplementary became effective upon filing on August 11, 2017.
The Articles Supplementary provide that the Company will pay, when and if authorized by the Board of Directors of the Company, cumulative cash dividends to the holders of the shares of the Series C Preferred Stock (i) from the date of issuance to, but not including, September 27, 2027 at an initial rate of 7.50% of the $25.00 per share liquidation preference (equivalent to $1.875 per annum per share) and (ii) from, and including, September 27, 2027 and thereafter, at a floating rate equal to three-month LIBOR as calculated on each applicable date of determination plus a spread of 5.289% of the $25.00 liquidation preference per annum. Dividends will be payable quarterly in arrears, on the 27th day of March, June, September and December 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), commencing on December 27, 2017.
The Series C Preferred Stock ranks senior to the Companys common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the Common Stock), and on a parity with the Companys 7.75% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock and 7.75% Fixed-to-Floating Series B Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock with respect to the payment of dividends and rights upon the voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company
The Series C Preferred Stock is not redeemable by the Company prior to September 27, 2027, except under circumstances intended to preserve the Companys qualification as a real estate investment trust (REIT) for federal income tax purposes and except upon the occurrence of a Change of Control (as defined in the Articles Supplementary). On and after September 27, 2027, the Company may, at its option, redeem the Series C Preferred Stock, in whole or in part, at any time or from time to time, at a redemption price of $25.00 per share, plus any accumulated and unpaid dividends to, but not including, the date fixed for redemption.
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 C 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.
Upon the occurrence of a Change of Control, each holder of Series C Preferred Stock will have the right (subject to the Companys election to redeem the Series C 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 C Preferred Stock held by such holder on the Change of Control Conversion Date into a number of shares of Common Stock per share of Series C 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.
The Series C 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 Common Stock in connection with a Change of Control by the holders of Series C Preferred Stock.
There are restrictions on ownership of the Series C Preferred Stock intended to preserve the Companys qualification as a REIT. Holders of the Series C Preferred Stock generally have no voting rights, but have limited voting rights if the Company fails to pay dividends for six or more full quarterly dividend periods (whether or not consecutive) and under certain other circumstances..
