On May 22, 2013, AvalonBay Communities, Inc. (the Company) entered into an underwriting agreement with Jupiter Enterprise LP (the Selling Stockholder) and Goldman, Sachs & Co., as underwriter (the Underwriting Agreement). The Selling Stockholder, which was formerly known as Archstone Enterprise LP and is an affiliate of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., acquired an aggregate of 14,889,706 shares of the Companys common stock, par value $0.01 per share, in connection with the Companys acquisition of a portion of the Archstone apartment community portfolio in February 2013. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Underwriting Agreement, the Selling Stockholder agreed to sell 7,870,000 shares of the Companys common stock. The price to the public was $137.00 per share.
No shares are being sold by the Company or any of its officers or directors in the offering, and the total number of outstanding shares of the Companys common stock will not change as a result of the offering. The Company will not receive any proceeds from the sale of the shares in the offering, but pursuant to the terms of the Underwriting Agreement the Company agreed to pay the expenses of the Selling Stockholder associated with the sale of the shares, not including any underwriting commissions or discount on the shares and certain other expenses. After the completion of the sale of the shares, the Selling Stockholders ownership of the Companys common stock will be reduced to 5.4%, based on the number of shares outstanding on April 30, 2013. The Underwriting Agreement is attached as Exhibit 1.1 hereto.
