"We are off to a solid start in 2012," said Mr. Victor J. Coleman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc. "During the first quarter, we closed two 10-year term loans with PNC Bank and Cantor Commercial Real Estate Lending totaling $43.0 million and $30.0 million, respectively. With attractive rates and longer maturities, these new term loans enhance our financial flexibility and complement our broader financing objectives, including the management of our debt maturities. In addition to these term loans, we also raised $56.1 million of proceeds from the successful public offering of our 8.375% Series B Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock. Strong institutional confidence in our operating platform and the strength of our capital structure drove demand for this offering, allowing us to readily achieve our size and pricing objectives."
