NEW YORK, June 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Brixmor Property Group Inc. (NYSE: BRX) announced today that the previously announced cash tender offer (the "Tender Offer") by its operating partnership, Brixmor Operating Partnership LP (the "Operating Partnership"), for any and all of the Operating Partnership's outstanding 3.875% Senior Notes due 2022 (the "Notes") expired at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on June 26, 2020 (the "Expiration Date"). According to information provided by D.F. King & Co., Inc., the Information and Tender Agent for the Tender Offer, $182,479,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes, or 36.50% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding, were validly tendered at or prior to the expiration of the Tender Offer and not validly withdrawn. These amounts exclude $1,164,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes tendered pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures (the "Guaranteed Delivery Procedures") described in the Offer to Purchase, dated June 22, 2020 (the "Offer to Purchase"). The Tender Offer was made pursuant to the Offer to Purchase and the related Notice of Guaranteed Delivery (the "Notice of Guaranteed Delivery" and, together with the Offer to Purchase, the "Offer Documents"). The obligation of the Operating Partnership to accept the Notes tendered and to pay the consideration for the Notes is subject to satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, which are more fully described in the Offer to Purchase. On June 29, 2020, which is the expected settlement date (the "Settlement Date"), the Operating Partnership expects to pay for the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn, except for those Notes validly tendered and delivered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures. The Operating Partnership expects to pay for the Notes validly tendered and delivered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures on July 1, 2020, which is the first business day following the Guaranteed Delivery Date of June 30, 2020 and the third business day following the Expiration Date.
Holders of Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will receive the previously announced total consideration of $1,049.30 for each $1,000 principal amount of the Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest ("Accrued Interest") on Notes purchased up to, but not including, the Settlement Date. For the avoidance of doubt, Accrued Interest will cease to accrue on the Settlement Date for all Notes accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer, including Notes tendered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures, and the Accrued Interest for all Notes accepted in the Tender Offer will not include any additional interest. Since the Operating Partnership expects that the Guaranteed Delivery Settlement Date will be two business days after the Settlement Date, holders tendering Notes pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures will not receive interest for such two business day period.
In connection with the Tender Offer, Brixmor Property Group Inc. expects to recognize a loss on extinguishment of debt of approximately $10.4 million in the second quarter of 2020.
