Capital Markets Activity
On May 25, 2021, IIP, through its operating partnership subsidiary (the Operating Partnership), issued $300 million aggregate principal amount of unsecured senior notes (the Notes). The Notes are the Operating Partnership’s general unsecured and unsubordinated obligations, are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by IIP and the Operating Partnership’s subsidiaries, and rank equally in right of payment with all of the Operating Partnership’s existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness, including its 3.75% Exchangeable Senior Notes due 2024. The Notes are governed by an indenture, which includes certain covenants.
The sale of the Notes generated net proceeds of approximately $293 million, after deducting the initial purchasers’ discounts and commissions and offering expenses. The notes bear interest at 5.50% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears on May 15 and November 15 of each year, until the maturity date of May 25, 2026. IIP intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to invest in specialized industrial real estate assets that support the regulated cannabis industry that are consistent with its investment strategy, and for general corporate purposes.
