DDR Corp. and Blackstone Real Estate Partners VII Form Joint Venture to Buy 76 Shopping Centers from American Realty Capital

DDR Corp. announced that it has formed a joint venture with affiliates of Blackstone Real Estate Partners VII, to acquire 76 shopping centers currently owned by American Realty Capital Properties Inc. (ARCP) in a $1.975 billion cash deal. On May 21, American Realty Capital had announced its intention to sell substantially all its multi-tenant shopping center portfolio to Blackstone for $1.975 billion in cash. DDR now announced that the joint venture has executed a purchase and sale agreement with American Realty Capital to acquire the portfolio. The deal value includes assumed debt of $461 million and approximately $800 million of new financings. The sale is expected to close by late third quarter 2014, subject to customary closing conditions. DDR announced that the non-prime asset sales within the portfolio are expected to commence thereafter as a result of active portfolio management within the joint venture. In the new joint venture, Blackstone owns 95% of the common equity, while an affiliate of DDR owns the remaining 5%. DDR will also invest up to a maximum of $300 million in preferred equity in the joint venture with a fixed dividend rate of 8.5%. DDR has agreed to provide customary leasing and management services. DDR further said that it will have the right of first offer to acquire ten of the assets under specified conditions consistent with past transactions. DDR noted that the 16.4 million square foot portfolio in the acquisition primarily consists of prime power centers located in Los Angeles, Houston, Denver, Chicago, Atlanta, Washington D.C. and Phoenix. The portfolio is 95.1% leased. In the transaction, Goldman, Sachs & Co. and KeyBanc Capital Markets served as advisors to DDR.
