This Current Report on Form 8-K is being filed in connection with the completion on August 9, 2022 (the “Closing Date”) of the transactions contemplated by that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of April 18, 2022 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among American Campus Communities, Inc., a Maryland corporation (the “Company”), American Campus Communities Operating Partnership LP, a Maryland limited partnership (the “Partnership”), Abacus Parent LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Parent”), Abacus Merger Sub I LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Merger Sub I”), and Abacus Merger Sub II LLC, a Maryland limited liability company (“Merger Sub II” and, together with Parent and Merger Sub I, the “Parent Parties”). The Parent Parties are affiliates of each of Blackstone Real Estate Income Trust, Inc. and Blackstone Property Partners L.P. Pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, at the closing of the Mergers (the “Closing”), Merger Sub II merged with and into the Partnership (the “Partnership Merger”), with the Partnership surviving (the “Surviving Partnership”) and the separate existence of Merger Sub II ceased, and immediately following the Partnership Merger, the Company merged with and into Merger Sub I (the “Company Merger” and, together with the Partnership Merger, the “Mergers”) with Merger Sub I surviving (the “Surviving Company”) and the separate existence of the Company ceased. As a result of the Mergers, the Surviving Company remained a subsidiary of Parent and the Partnership became a subsidiary of the Surviving Company. As of the closing of the Company Merger, the Surviving Company became known as American Campus Communities LLC.

 

Item 1.02.

Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement

The information provided in the Introductory Note and Item 2.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference.

On August 9, 2022, in connection with the Mergers, the Company (i) caused the termination of all commitments, liabilities and other obligations under, the Sixth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of May 21, 2021, by and among the Partnership, the Company, KeyBank National Association and other parties thereto and (ii) caused the repayment in full of the indebtedness, liabilities and other obligations under, certain real estate mortgages of the Company’s subsidiaries.

On August 9, 2022, at the Partnership’s request, in accordance with the Indenture, dated as of April 2, 2013 (as amended or supplemented to date, the Indenture), by and among the Partnership, as issuer, the Company, as guarantor, and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”), the Trustee delivered notices of redemption to holders of the Partnership’s 3.750% Senior Notes due 2023 (the “2023 Notes”), 4.125% Senior Notes due 2024 (the “2024 Notes”), 3.300% Senior Notes due 2026 (the “2026 Notes”), 3.625% Senior Notes due 2027 (the “2027 Notes”), 2.250% Senior Notes due 2029 (the “2029 Notes”), 2.850% Senior Notes due 2030 (the “2030 Notes”), 3.875% Senior Notes due 2031 (the “2031 Notes”, and together with the 2023 Notes, 2024 Notes, 2026 Notes, 2027 Notes, 2029 Notes and 2030 Notes, the “Notes”), stating that the Partnership will redeem all $2,800 million in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes, in accordance with the Indenture.

After the deposit of such funds, the Indenture was satisfied and discharged with respect to the Notes in accordance with its terms. As a result of the satisfaction and discharge of the Indenture with respect to the Notes, each of the Partnership and the Company has been released from its obligations under the Indenture in respect of the Notes, except those provisions of the Indenture that, by their terms, survive the satisfaction and discharge of the Indenture.

Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, among other things:

Restricted Stock: At or immediately prior to, as applicable, the Company Merger Effective Time, each share of unvested restricted common stock granted pursuant to the Company’s 2018 Stock Incentive Plan (collectively, with the Company’s 2004 Incentive Award Plan and the 2010 Incentive Award Plan, the “Long-Term Incentive Plans”), other than each outstanding equity-based award credited to a stock account under the Company’s deferred compensation plan and each outstanding unvested equity-based award with respect to which a valid deferral election under the deferred compensation plan had been made (the “Deferred Stock Awards”), automatically fully vested and all restrictions and reacquisition rights thereon lapsed, and all shares of common stock represented thereby were considered outstanding for all purposes under the Merger Agreement and had the right to receive the Per Company Share Merger Consideration, less any applicable withholding taxes; and

Payments under the deferred compensation plan will be made in accordance with the timing set forth in the plan and the applicable payment elections for participants in the plan, subject to any right to terminate the plan and accelerate distributions of participant account balances pursuant to the terms of the deferred compensation plan and applicable law.
