Shopping mall giant Simon Property Group Inc. on Thursday said that its majority-owned partnership subsidiary, Simon Property Group LP, plans to sell $1.2 billion of new debt to repay older debt.

The offering consists of $500 million of 2.8-percent notes due 2017 and $700 million of 4.125-percent notes due 2021. The offering is expected to close on Wednesday.

Indianapolis-based Simon Property plans to use the net proceeds from the offering to partially repay the outstanding U.S. dollar balance of its senior unsecured credit facility and for general business purposes.

Citigroup Global Markets, JPMorgan Securities, BofA Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank Securities, Goldman Sachs & Co. and Morgan Stanley are acting as joint book-running managers.

Mitsubishi UFJ Securities USA., RBC Capital Markets, SMBC Nikko Capital Markets, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey and U.S. Bancorp are acting as co-managers.

  • Nothing like that
    Neva - this is nothing like robbing Peter to pay Paul. This is like refinancing your home. They are selling debt at an extremely low rate to pay off higher interest rate debt. They are also extending their repayment time frame of that debt, which gives them a better credit rating based on lowered risk.
  • Isn't this like robbing Peter to pay Paul?
    Seems so to me. You'd never get ahead.

  1. Why should citizens rates increase forever to basically reduce Dukes cost to operate in the future? They will have no meter readers, no connect/disconnect personnel and will need fewer lineman to handle the same number of customers. Add to that the ability to replace customer service by giving detailed information electronically. Why do we have to subsidize the cost cutting measures of a Public Utility?

  2. In response to Sassafras, I have to ask if you relocated directly from Bloomington to Carmel? First, as you point out, Carmel is 48 square miles. Do you think it’s possible that some areas are more densely developed than others? That might explain traffic density in some places while others are pretty free moving. Second, your comment “have you ever been to Chicago--or just about any city outside of Indiana?” belies your bias. I don’t know, Sassafras, have you never been to Nashville, Columbus, OH, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Kansas City, Denver, Phoenix? They’re not a lot different in density than Indy. One more thing…I understand these comment sections are for expressing opinions, so those of us just looking for facts have to be patient, but you mention “low-density” Indy. How many cities in the US comprise 400 square miles with about 10% of that still being agricultural? Those facts certainly can impact the statistics.

  3. With all the past shady actions of Duke with utility regulators, one wonders do they really need such a huge amount? Concerned regulators not protecting ratepayers from the aggressive Duke monolith.

  4. I thought that had to be the way it was but had to ask because I wasn't sure. Thanks Again!

  5. I could be wrong, but I don't think Butler views the new dorm as mere replacements for Schwitzer and or Ross.
