ITEM 8.01 – other events

 

On May 12, 2021, CyrusOne Inc., a Maryland corporation (the “Company”), announced that its indirect subsidiary CyrusOne Europe Finance DAC, a designated activity company organized under the laws of Ireland (the “Issuer”), priced an offering of €500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 1.125% Senior Notes due 2028 (the “Notes”). The Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of the Issuer and will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by the Company and CyrusOne LP, a Maryland limited partnership and the Company’s operating partnership (the “Operating Partnership”). The Issuer is wholly owned by the Operating Partnership.

 

Settlement of the offering is expected to occur on May 26, 2021, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. Interest on the Notes will be paid in cash annually in arrears at a rate of 1.125% per annum from and including May 26, 2021. The Notes will be issued pursuant to an indenture between the Issuer, the Company, the Operating Partnership, Wells Fargo, N.A., as trustee, Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, as paying agent and transfer agent, and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as registrar and authenticating agent, setting forth the terms of the Notes.

 

The Issuer intends to loan proceeds from the Notes to the Operating Partnership, and the Operating Partnership intends to use such proceeds to repay certain Euro denominated borrowings under its revolving credit facility and for general corporate purposes. The Company intends to also allocate an amount equal to the net proceeds from the Notes to finance or refinance a portfolio of existing or future green building, renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainable water and wastewater management, pollution prevention and control and clean transportation projects or assets.

 

The Notes are being offered only outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Notes have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to United States persons (within the meaning of Regulation S under the Securities Act) absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.

 

On May 12, 2021, the Company issued a press release announcing that the Issuer had priced its offering of the Notes. A copy of this press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Neither this Current Report on Form 8-K nor the information contained herein constitutes or forms part of 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 of any securities in any jurisdiction in which, or to any person to whom, such an offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
