Brandywine Realty Trust Prices Offering Of 6.90% Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares

RADNOR, Pa., April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Brandywine Realty Trust (the "Company") (NYSE: BDN) announced today that it has priced a public offering of 4,000,000 shares of its 6.90% Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares at $25.00 per share, plus accrued dividends, if any.  The offering is expected to close on April 11, 2012, subject to customary closing conditions.  Dividends on the 6.90% Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares will be paid quarterly in arrears on or about the 15th day of each January, April, July, and October, commencing July 15, 2012, at a rate per annum of 6.90% of the liquidation value of $25.00 per share (equivalent to $1.725 per share per annum).

The underwriters for the public offering have been granted a 30-day option to purchase up to 600,000 additional shares of 6.90% Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares to cover over-allotments, if any.  The Company intends to file an application to list the 6.90% Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares on the New York Stock Exchange.  Trading of the 6.90% Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares on the New York Stock Exchange is expected to begin within 30 days after the initial issuance of the 6.90% Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares.

Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated and Citigroup are acting as the joint book-running managers of the offering.  J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and RBC Capital Markets are acting as senior co-managers, and Janney Montgomery Scott and PNC Capital Markets are acting as co-managers of the offering.  The estimated net proceeds from the offering are expected to be approximately $96.3 million, after deducting the underwriting discount and our estimated expenses, but before giving effect to any exercise of the underwriters' over-allotment option.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to fund its previously announced redemption of all 2,000,000 shares of its outstanding 7.50% Series C Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares and for other general corporate purposes, which may include acquisitions, real estate development activities and repurchases or redemption of debt or other outstanding preferred shares.
