GREENWICH, Conn., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Starwood Property Trust, Inc. (NYSE: STWD) (the "Company") today announced the pricing of an underwritten public offering of 26,500,000 shares of its common stock for total estimated gross proceeds of approximately $723.5 million (or approximately $832.0 million if the option to purchase additional shares is exercised in full).  The underwriters have a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 3,975,000 shares from the Company.  Settlement of the offering is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to occur on April 12, 2013.  All of the shares will be issued under the Company's currently effective shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
