INDIANAPOLIS, March 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Simon Property Group, Inc., a global leader in the ownership of premier shopping, dining, entertainment and mixed-use destinations (the "Company"), today announced that its indirect subsidiary, Simon International Finance, S.C.A., a corporate partnership limited by shares ( société en commandite par actions) under the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (the "Issuer"), has agreed to sell €750 million principal amount of its 1.125% unsecured notes due 2033 (the "Notes") in an offering to non-U.S. persons outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by Simon Property Group, L.P. (the "Operating Partnership"). This offering is expected to close on March 19, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions. The Notes are expected to be admitted on the Official List of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange and to trading on the Euro MTF Market.
The Company currently expects to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay unsecured indebtedness outstanding under the Operating Partnership's senior unsecured delayed-draw term loan facility.
The Notes to be offered have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act or applicable state or other securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase the Notes or any other securities, and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. This press release is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act.
This press release has been prepared on the basis that any offer of the securities in any Member State of the European Economic Area ("EEA") (each, a "Relevant State") will be made pursuant to an exemption under Regulation (EU) 2017/1129, as amended (the "Prospectus Regulation"), from the requirement to publish a prospectus for offers of securities. In addition, this press release has been prepared on the basis that any offer of the securities in the United Kingdom will be made pursuant to an exemption under the Prospectus Regulation as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (the "UK Prospectus Regulation") from a requirement to publish a prospectus for offers of such securities. Accordingly, any person making or intending to make in that Relevant State or in the United Kingdom any offer of the Notes may only do so in circumstances in which no obligation arises for the Issuer, any of its affiliates or the managers of such securities to publish a prospectus pursuant to the Prospectus Regulation or the UK Prospectus Regulation, respectively, in relation to such offer. Neither the Issuer nor the managers of such securities have authorized, nor do they authorize, the making of any offer of Notes in circumstances in which an obligation arises for the Issuer or the managers of such securities to publish or supplement a prospectus for such offer.
This press release is only being distributed to, and is only directed at, persons in the United Kingdom that (i) are "investment professionals" falling within Article 19(5) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005 (as amended, the "Order"), (ii) are persons falling within Article 49(2)(a) to (d) ("high net worth companies, unincorporated associations, etc.") of the Order, or (iii) are persons to whom an invitation or inducement to engage in investment activity (within the meaning of section 21 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000) in connection with the issue or sale of any securities may otherwise lawfully be communicated or caused to be communicated (all such persons together being referred to as "Relevant Persons").

Although the Company believes the expectations reflected in any forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, the Company can give no assurance that its expectations will be attained, and it is possible that the Company's actual results may differ materially from those indicated by these forward-looking statements due to a variety of risks, uncertainties and other factors.

The Company discusses these and other risks and uncertainties under the heading "Risk Factors" in its annual and quarterly periodic reports filed with the SEC. The Company may update that discussion in subsequent other periodic reports, but except as required by law, the Company undertakes no duty or obligation to update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments, or otherwise.
