On December 8, 2014, the Hudson Pacific Properties Inc announced that it has entered into a definitive Asset Purchase Agreement, dated December 6, 2014 (the “Purchase Agreement”), by and among the Company, Hudson Pacific Properties, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”) and certain affiliates of The Blackstone Group L.P. (collectively, the “Seller Parties”), which has been approved by the Company’s Board of Directors, pursuant to which Hudson Pacific Properties Inc will acquire from the Seller Parties a portfolio of 26 office assets totaling approximately 8.2 million square feet and two development parcels in the San Francisco Peninsula and Silicon Valley in exchange for $1.75 billion in cash and approximately 63.5 million shares of Hudson Pacific Properties Inc common stock and common units of limited partnership interest in the Operating Partnership.
According to the investigation under New York Stock Exchange rules the proposed transaction requires shareholder approval because, as part of the transaction, Hudson Pacific Properties Inc plans to issue shares equaling more than 20% of the total number of shares of its common stock and common units outstanding prior to the issuance and therefore the investigation concerns whether the Board of Hudson Pacific Properties Inc breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by agreeing to the transaction.
