Item 8.01 Other Events.
On October 18, 2006, Realty Income Corporation (the Company) entered into a purchase agreement with Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, A.G. Edwards & Sons, Inc., Raymond James & Associates, Inc. and Wachovia Capital Markets, LLC, as the representatives of the underwriters (the Underwriters), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell 6,000,000 shares of the Companys common stock, par value $1.00 per share, plus up to an additional 900,000 shares of the Companys common stock, par value $1.00 per share, if the Underwriters exercise their overallotment option in full. The public offering price for the shares is $26.40 per share. Upon the closing of this offering, based on shares outstanding as of October 16, 2006, the number of shares of common stock outstanding will increase to 99,846,289 shares, excluding the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the Underwriters over-allotment option.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering (approximately $150.7 million, or approximately $173.3 million if the Underwriters overallotment option is exercised in full, in each case, after deducting the discount to the Underwriters but before estimated expenses payable by the Company) to fund a portion of the purchase price of the Buffets/Ryans properties it intends to purchase under the definitive commitment letter executed by the Company on September 5, 2006. The Company is acquiring these properties subsequent to a previously announced merger agreement between Buffets, Inc. and Ryans Restaurant Group. Although the Companys purchase of these properties is expected to be completed in late October or early November 2006, it is subject to a number of conditions, including the closing of the Buffets/Ryans merger. The Company intends to finance the purchase of potential future acquisitions and a portion of the purchase price of the Buffets/Ryans acquisition, with borrowings under its $300 million acquisition credit facility or the proceeds from additional public offerings of securities (including possible issuances of common stock, preferred stock or unsecured notes).
