Form 8-K for PENNSYLVANIA REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST


3-May-2013

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Financial S


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 1, 2013, Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (the "Company") entered into a Purchase Agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") by and among the Company, PREIT Associates, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership and the Company's operating partnership, and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (the "Underwriters"), pursuant to which the Company agreed to offer and sell 10,000,000 common shares of beneficial interest, par value $1.00 per share (the "Common Shares"). The Common Shares were offered to the public at a price of $20.00 per share and were offered to the Underwriters at a price of $19.20 per share. The closing of the offering is expected to occur on May 6, 2013. The Company granted the Underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 1,500,000 Common Shares, and on May 2, 2013, the Underwriters exercised that option in full.

The Company estimates that the net proceeds from this offering, after deducting the underwriting discount and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company, will be approximately $220.3 million, which includes the proceeds received as a result of the full exercise by the Underwriters of the option to purchase additional Common Shares. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay amounts outstanding under its senior unsecured revolving credit facility (the "2013 Revolving Facility") and for other general corporate purposes.

The Company made certain customary representations, warranties and covenants concerning the Company and the registration statement in the Purchase Agreement and also agreed to indemnify the Underwriters against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The closing of the offering is subject to customary closing conditions pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement.

Some of the Underwriters and their affiliates have engaged in investment banking and other commercial dealings in the ordinary course of business with the Company and therefore may have an interest in the successful completion of this offering in addition to the underwriting discount they will receive in connection with the offering. In addition, affiliates of certain of the Underwriters are lenders under the 2013 Revolving Facility. Since the Company intends to use a portion of the net proceeds from this offering to repay amounts outstanding under its 2013 Revolving Facility, these lenders will receive a portion of the net proceeds from this offering through the repayment of such borrowings. In addition, Wells Fargo Shareowner Services, an affiliate of Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, is the registrar and transfer agent for the Company's common shares.

A copy of the Purchase Agreement is attached to this report as Exhibit 1.1 and incorporated herein by reference. The summary set forth above is qualified in its entirety by reference to Exhibit 1.1.
