The issuance and sale of the Notes is expected to occur on December 3, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions. The Operating Partnership intends to use the net proceeds from the issuance and sale of the Notes, together with cash on hand, to redeem all $250 million outstanding aggregate principal amount of its 5.40% Senior Notes due August 15, 2014 at a redemption price equal to the principal amount of the notes being redeemed plus accrued interest thereon to the redemption date plus the make-whole amount.
