iStar Financial Announces Pricing of Unsecured Senior Notes Offering and Convertible Senior Notes Offering

NEW YORK, Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- iStar Financial Inc. (NYSE: SFI) announced today that it has agreed to sell $300 million aggregate principal amount of unsecured 7.125% Senior Notes due 2018 and $175 million aggregate principal amount of 3.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2016 in concurrent public offerings, both at par.  The Company will use the net proceeds of the offerings to redeem the remaining $67 million aggregate principal amount of its 6.5% Senior Notes due 2013 and the remainder of the net proceeds to redeem approximately $381 million aggregate principal amount of its 8.625% Senior Notes due 2013.

The 7.125% Senior Notes due 2018 will mature on February 15, 2018.  Interest on the Senior Notes will be payable semi-annually on each February 15 and August 15, commencing August 15, 2013.

The 3.00% Convertible Senior Notes will mature on November 15, 2016.  Interest on the Convertible Senior Notes will be payable semi-annually on each May 15 and November 15, commencing May 15, 2013. The Convertible Senior Notes are convertible at a conversion rate of 84.9582 shares of the Company's common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes, which is equal to a conversion price of approximately $11.77 per share, subject to adjustment. This represents an approximately 42.5% conversion premium based on the last reported sale price of $8.26 per share of the Company's common stock on the New York Stock Exchange on November 7, 2012. iStar has granted the underwriters the option to purchase up to an additional $25 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes.
