This Current Report on Form 8-K is filed by Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc. (the “Company”), a Maryland corporation, and Hudson Pacific Properties, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”), a Maryland limited partnership, of which the Company serves as the sole general partner.

Item 8.01    Other Events.

On July 30, 2020, the Company announced that funds affiliated with Blackstone Property Partners (“Blackstone”) have completed their previously announced acquisition of a 49% interest in the Company’s three Hollywood studios and five on-lot or adjacent Class A office properties (collectively, the “Hollywood Media Portfolio”) at a gross portfolio valuation of $1.65 billion. The Company retained a 51% ownership stake and, in exchange for customary property management and other fees, remains responsible for day-to-day operations, leasing and development.

The Hollywood Media Portfolio aggregates approximately 2.2 million square feet and includes Sunset Bronson, Sunset Gower and Sunset Las Palmas Studios. Collectively, these properties comprise 35 stages or 1.2 million square feet of production and support space in Hollywood and 966,000 square feet of Class A office properties on or adjacent to the lots, specifically, 6040 Sunset, ICON, CUE, EPIC and Harlow. Harlow is currently under development and is anticipated to be complete early Q-3 2020.

In conjunction with closing the transaction, the joint venture closed a $900.0 million mortgage loan secured by the Hollywood Media Portfolio. This loan has an initial term of two years from the first payment date, with three one-year extension options, subject to certain requirements. With an initial interest rate, subject to final bond pricing, of LIBOR plus 2.15% per annum, it will bear interest only payable every month during the term of the loan with principal payable at maturity. The loan is non-recourse, except as to customary non-recourse carveout guaranties from the Company and Blackstone’s affiliate.

The Company’s combined proceeds from the sale of the 49% interest in the Hollywood Media Portfolio and its share of asset-level financing will be approximately $1.27 billion before closing credits, prorations and costs. The Company expects to use approximately $780.0 million to repay all outstanding amounts under its revolving credit facilities and Term Loans B and D, which are due second and fourth quarter 2022, respectively, with the remainder to provide for potential future investments and/or share repurchases, and general corporate purposes.

Item 7.01    Regulation FD Disclosure.

On August 3, 2020, the Company issued a press release regarding the closing of the acquisition discussed in Item 8.01 above. A copy of this press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

The information being furnished pursuant to Item 7.01 shall not be deemed “filed” for any purpose, including for the purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section. The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.
