ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- National Retail Properties, Inc. (NYSE: NNN) (the "Company") today announced the expiration of the option of the holders of its outstanding 3.95% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026 (the "Notes") to require the Company to purchase all or a portion of their Notes at par pursuant to the terms of the Notes and the indenture governing the Notes (the "Put Option"). Under the terms of the Put Option, holders of the Notes had the opportunity to surrender the Notes for purchase prior to or at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 13, 2011, and had the opportunity to withdraw any Notes previously surrendered for purchase at any time prior to 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on September 19, 2011 (the "Withdrawal Date").
As of the Withdrawal Date, none of the Notes were validly surrendered and not validly withdrawn, and therefore none of the Notes will be purchased by the Company pursuant to the Put Option. Approximately $138.7 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes remains outstanding, and the terms and other provisions of the indenture governing the Notes will remain unchanged. The next put option repurchase date for holders of the Notes is September 15, 2016.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell any securities, including the Notes. The offer to purchase the Notes was made only pursuant to the Issuer Put Right Notice dated August 15, 2011, and related documents which set forth the complete terms and conditions of the Put Option.
