Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On May 21, 2021, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (the “Utility”), a subsidiary of PG&E Corporation, entered into a Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Hines Atlas US LP, a Delaware limited partnership (such entity and any affiliate successor thereof, “Buyer”).  The Agreement provides that, contingent on approval by the California Public Utilities Commission (the “CPUC”), the Utility will sell to Buyer the property on current office space generally located at 25 Beale Street, 77 Beale Street, 215 Market Street, 245 Market Street and 50 Main Street, San Francisco, California 94105, and associated properties owned by the Utility (the “Property”).  The sale under the Agreement would take place 10 business days after CPUC approval of the sale but in no event prior to August 15, 2021.  The purchase price will be $800,000,000 subject to customary prorations and adjustments under the Agreement.  Buyer will deposit $20,000,000 into escrow to serve as liquidated damages in the event of certain breaches by Buyer.

The foregoing summary of the terms of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreement, a copy of which (in redacted form subject to a confidential treatment request submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”)) is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Report and is incorporated herein by reference.
