Other Events, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 8.01. Other Events.

On May 1, 2013, Highwoods Properties, Inc. (the "Company") and Highwoods Realty Limited Partnership entered into separate equity distribution agreements with each of Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, BB&T Capital Markets, a division of BB&T Securities, LLC, Comerica Securities, Inc., Jefferies LLC and Piper Jaffray & Co. Under the terms of the equity distribution agreements, the Company may offer and sell up to $150,000,000 in aggregate gross sales price of shares of common stock from time to time through such firms, acting as agents of the Company or as principals. Sales of the shares, if any, may be made by means of ordinary brokers' transactions on the New York Stock Exchange or otherwise at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices or as otherwise agreed with any of such firms.

Subject to the terms and conditions of each equity distribution agreement, each firm will use its commercially reasonable efforts to sell on the Company's behalf any shares to be offered by the Company under that equity distribution agreement. Under the terms of each equity distribution agreement, the Company also may sell shares to any of the firms as principal, at a price per share to be agreed upon at the time of sale. If the Company sells shares to any such firm acting as principal, it will enter into a separate terms agreement with that agent, and the Company will describe the agreement in a separate prospectus supplement or pricing supplement. If the Company engages the firm for a sale of shares that would constitute a "distribution" within the meaning of Rule 100 of Regulation M under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Company and the firm will agree to compensation that is customary for the firm with respect to such transactions.

The shares of common stock will be issued pursuant to the Company's automatic shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-172134), as amended, including the related prospectus dated February 9, 2011, and a prospectus supplement dated May 1, 2013, as the same may be amended or supplemented.
