Form 8-K for PENNSYLVANIA REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST


8-Nov-2012

Other Events


Item 8.01 Other Events.

On November 6, 2012, a subsidiary of Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (the "Company") entered into a purchase and sale agreement with Rubenstein Real Estate Co., LC (Overland Park, Kansas)("Rubenstein"), for the sale of the Company's interests in Paxton Towne Centre, a 717,000 square foot power center located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The purchase price is $76.8 million, subject to adjustments and excluding closing costs. The current mortgage loan secured by this property has a balance of $50.0 million. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the sale, after closing costs, to repay this mortgage loan and to use the remainder to repay a portion of the borrowings under the 2010 Credit Facility. The transaction is expected to be completed by December 31, 2012.

The purchase and sale agreement contains representations and warranties by the seller customary for transactions of this nature, contains customary buyer due diligence provisions, and contains other customary terms and conditions, including customary closing conditions. At the expiration of the buyer's due diligence period specified in the agreement, Rubenstein will have to make a $2.0 million deposit. Because the transaction remains subject to the buyer due diligence provisions and certain other closing conditions, there can be no assurance that the property will be sold or will be sold on the terms described herein.

Risk Factors" and in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. We do not intend to update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect new information, future events or otherwise.
