On April 1, 2010, Duke Realty Corporation, an Indiana corporation (Duke), and Duke Realty Limited Partnership, an Indiana limited partnership (the Operating Partnership), of which Duke is the sole General Partner, completed the issuance and sale of $250 million aggregate principal amount of the Operating Partnerships 6.75% Senior Notes Due 2020 (the 2020 Notes). The 2020 Notes were registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the Commission) pursuant to the Operating Partnerships automatic shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-160952-01) (as the same may be amended and/or supplemented, the Registration Statement), under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act). The 2020 Notes were issued under the Indenture, dated as of July 28, 2006 (the Indenture), as supplemented by the Seventh Supplemental Indenture, dated as of April 1, 2010 (the Supplemental Indenture), by and between the Operating Partnership and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. (as successor to J.P. Morgan Trust Company, National Association), as trustee (the Trustee).
The Operating Partnership used approximately $70.2 million of the estimated net proceeds from the issuance and sale of the 2020 Notes (the Notes Issuance) to fund its previously announced tender offer for its 6.95% Senior Notes due 2011 (the 2011 Notes), which was conditioned upon the closing of the Notes Issuance. The total face value of this repurchase was approximately $66.3 million. The Operating Partnership intends to use the remaining proceeds from the Notes Issuance to fund its tender offer for its 5.625% Senior Notes due 2011 and 6.25% Senior Notes due 2013, which was announced simultaneously with the tender offer for the 2011 Notes and was also conditioned upon the closing of the Notes Issuance.
The Indenture previously was filed with the Commission on July 31, 2006, as Exhibit 4.1 to the Operating Partnerships prior registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-136173-01). A conformed copy of the Supplemental Indenture is filed as Exhibit 4.1 to this Report.
