ROCHESTER, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Broadstone Net Lease, Inc. (NYSE: BNL), (“BNL”), today announced the pricing of an underwritten public offering of 13,000,000 shares of its Common Stock, at a price to the public of $21.35 per share, less underwriting discounts and commissions, in connection with the forward sale agreements described below. The underwriters also have been granted a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 1,950,000 shares of Common Stock at the public offering price, less underwriting discounts and commissions. The closing of the offering is expected to occur on August 12, 2022, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, BMO Capital Markets, J.P. Morgan, and Truist Securities are acting as joint book-running managers of the offering.
BNL and its operating company (the “OP”) have entered into forward sale agreements with each of Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, Bank of Montreal, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., and Truist Bank or their affiliates (the “forward purchasers”). In connection with the forward sale agreements, the forward purchasers or their affiliates are expected to borrow and sell to the underwriters an aggregate of 13,000,000 shares of Common Stock that will be delivered in this offering (or an aggregate of 14,950,000 shares of Common Stock if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares in full). Subject to its right to elect cash or net share settlement, which right is subject to certain conditions, BNL intends to deliver, upon physical settlement of such forward sale agreements on one or more dates specified by BNL occurring no later than August 10, 2023, an aggregate of 13,000,000 shares of Common Stock (or an aggregate of 14,950,000 shares of Common Stock if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares in full) to the forward purchasers in exchange for cash proceeds per share equal to the applicable forward sale price, which will be the public offering price, less underwriting discounts and commissions, and will be subject to certain adjustments as provided in the forward sale agreements.
BNL will not initially receive any proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock by the forward purchasers and their affiliates in the offering. BNL intends to contribute the net proceeds, if any, it receives upon the future settlement of the forward sale agreements to the OP. The OP intends to subsequently use such net proceeds to fund potential acquisition opportunities, to repay amounts outstanding from time to time under its unsecured revolving credit facility and other indebtedness, and for other general corporate and working capital purposes.
