Boston Properties, Inc. (NYSE:BXP), a real estate investment trust, announced today that it has priced an underwritten public offering of 8,000,000 depositary shares, each representing a 1/100th of a share of its newly designated 5.25% Series B Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, at a price of $25.00 per depositary share. The Company has granted the underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional 1,200,000 depositary shares within 30 days solely to cover over-allotments, if any. The offering is expected to close on or about March 27, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds for general business purposes, which may include investment opportunities and debt reduction.
