Additional Covenants

 

  (a)

Aggregate Debt Test.

 

  (i)

The Company will not, and will not permit any of its Subsidiaries to, incur any Debt (including without limitation Acquired Debt) if, immediately after giving effect to the incurrence of such Debt and the application of the proceeds from such Debt on a pro forma basis, the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Debt of the Company and its Subsidiaries (determined on a consolidated basis in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles) is greater than 60% of the sum of the following (without duplication):

 

  (A)

the Total Assets of the Company and its Subsidiaries as of the last day of the then most recently ended fiscal quarter; and

 

  (B)

the aggregate purchase price of any real estate assets or mortgages receivable acquired, and the aggregate amount of any securities offering proceeds received (to the extent such proceeds were not used to acquire real estate assets or mortgages receivable or used to reduce Debt), by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries since the end of such fiscal quarter, including the proceeds obtained from the incurrence of such additional Debt.

 

  (ii)

For purposes of this covenant, Debt will be deemed to be incurred by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries whenever the Company or such Subsidiary shall create, assume, guarantee or otherwise become liable in respect thereof.

 

  (b)

Debt Service Test.

 

  (i)

The Company will not, and will not permit any of its Subsidiaries to, incur any Debt (including without limitation Acquired Debt) if the ratio of Consolidated Income Available for Debt Service to Annual Debt Service Charge for the period consisting of the four consecutive fiscal quarters most recently ended prior to the date on which such additional Debt is to be incurred shall have been less than 1.5:1 on a pro forma basis after giving effect to the incurrence of such Debt and the application of the proceeds from such Debt (determined on a consolidated basis in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles), and calculated on the following assumptions:

 

  (A)

such Debt and any other Debt (including without limitation Acquired Debt) incurred by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries since the first day of such four-quarter period had been incurred, and the application of the proceeds from such Debt (including to repay or retire other Debt) had occurred, on the first day of such period;

 

I-5


  (B)

the repayment or retirement of any other Debt of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries since the first day of such four-quarter period had occurred on the first day of such period (except that, in making this computation, the amount of Debt under any revolving credit facility, line of credit or similar facility will be computed based upon the average daily balance of such Debt during such period); and

 

  (C)

in the case of any acquisition or disposition by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries of any asset or group of assets with a fair market value in excess of $1.0 million since the first day of such four-quarter period, whether by merger, stock purchase or sale or asset purchase or sale or otherwise, such acquisition or disposition had occurred as of the first day of such period with the appropriate adjustments with respect to such acquisition or disposition being included in such pro forma calculation.

 

  (ii)

If the Debt giving rise to the need to make the calculation described in this covenant or any other Debt incurred after the first day of the relevant four- quarter period bears interest at a floating rate, then, for purposes of calculating the Annual Debt Service Charge, the interest rate on such Debt will be computed on a pro forma basis by applying the average daily rate which would have been in effect during the entire four-quarter period to the greater of the amount of such Debt outstanding at the end of such period or the average amount of such Debt outstanding during such period. For purposes of this covenant, Debt will be deemed to be incurred by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries whenever the Company or such Subsidiary shall create, assume, guarantee or otherwise become liable in respect thereof.

 

  (c)

$425,000,000 Aggregate Principal Amount of 3.450% Senior Notes due 2024

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We have acted as special counsel to Kilroy Realty, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (the “Company”), and Kilroy Realty Corporation, a Maryland corporation (the “Guarantor”), in connection with the issuance of $425,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 3.450% Senior Notes due 2024 (the “Notes”) and the guarantees of the Notes (the “Guarantees”) by the Guarantor pursuant to an indenture dated as of March 1, 2011 (the “Base Indenture”), by and among the Company, the Guarantor and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”), as amended and supplemented by a supplemental indenture dated as of July 5, 2011 (the “Supplemental Indenture”; the Base Indenture, as amended and supplemented by the Supplemental Indenture, is hereinafter called the “Indenture”), among the Company, the Guarantor and the Trustee, and an officers’ certificate, dated as of the date hereof, establishing the form and terms of the Notes and Guarantees pursuant to the Indenture, and pursuant to: (i) a registration statement on Form S-3 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on October 2, 2013 (Registration Nos. 333-213864 and 333-213864-01) (as so filed, the “Registration Statement”); (ii) a base prospectus dated September 29, 2016 (the “Base Prospectus”); (iii) a prospectus supplement dated November 27, 2017 filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Act (the “Prospectus Supplement,” and together with the Base Prospectus, the “Prospectus”); and (iv) an underwriting agreement dated November 27, 2017 by and among the Company, the Guarantor and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and U.S. Bancorp Investments, Inc., as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (the “Underwriting Agreement”). This opinion is being furnished in connection with the requirements of Item 601(b)(5) of Regulation S-K under the Act, and no opinion is expressed herein as to any matter pertaining to the contents of the Registration Statement or related prospectus, other than as expressly stated herein with respect to the issuance of the Notes and the Guarantees.

As such counsel, we have examined such matters of fact and questions of law as we have considered appropriate for purposes of this letter. With your consent, we have relied upon certificates and

other assurances of officers of the Company, the Guarantor, and others as to factual matters without having independently verified such factual matters. We are opining herein as to the internal laws of the State of New York and the Delaware Revised Uniform Limited Partnership Act (“DRULPA”), and we express no opinion with respect to the applicability thereto, or the effect thereon, of the laws of any other jurisdiction or, in the case of Delaware, any other laws, or as to any matters of municipal law or the laws of any local agencies within any state. Various matters concerning Maryland law are addressed in the opinion of Ballard Spahr LLP, separately provided to you, and we express no opinion with respect to those matters, and to the extent elements of those opinions are necessary to the conclusions expressed herein, we have, with your consent, assumed such matters.

Subject to the foregoing and the other matters set forth herein, as of the date hereof:

1.    Assuming due authorization and execution by the Guarantor, in its capacity as the sole general partner of the Company, when issued and authenticated in accordance with the terms of the Indenture, and delivered against payment therefor in the circumstances contemplated by the Underwriting Agreement, the Notes will be legally valid and binding obligations of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with their terms.

2.    Assuming due authorization and execution by the Guarantor on its own behalf, when issued in connection with the execution, delivery and authentication of the Notes in accordance with the terms of the Indenture, the Guarantees will be legally valid and binding obligations of the Guarantor, enforceable against the Guarantor in accordance with their terms.

Our opinions are subject to: (i) the effect of bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, voidable preference, fraudulent transfer, moratorium or other similar laws relating to or affecting the rights and remedies of creditors; (ii) the effect of general principles of equity, whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law (including the possible unavailability of specific performance or injunctive relief), concepts of materiality, reasonableness, good faith and fair dealing, and the discretion of the court before which a proceeding is brought; (iii) the invalidity under certain circumstances under law or court decisions of provisions providing for the indemnification of or contribution to a party with respect to a liability where such indemnification or contribution is contrary to public policy; and (iv) we express no opinion as to (a) any provision for liquidated damages, default interest, late charges, monetary penalties, make-whole premiums or other economic remedies to the extent such provisions are deemed to constitute a penalty, (b) consents to, or restrictions upon, governing law, jurisdiction, venue, arbitration, remedies or judicial relief, (c) the waiver of rights or defenses contained in Section 1011 of the Indenture, (d) any provision requiring the payment of attorneys’ fees, where such payment is contrary to law or public policy, (e) any provision permitting, upon acceleration of the Notes, collection of that portion of the stated principal amount thereof which might be determined to constitute unearned interest thereon, (f) any provision to the extent it requires that a claim with respect to the Notes (or a judgment in respect of such a claim) be converted into U.S. dollars at a rate of exchange at a particular date, to the extent applicable law otherwise provides, (g) provisions purporting to make a guarantor primarily liable rather than as a surety and provisions purporting to waive modifications of any guaranteed obligation to the extent such modification constitutes a novation, (h) advance waivers of claims, defenses, rights granted by law, or notice, opportunity for hearing, evidentiary requirements, statutes of limitation, trial by jury or at law, or other procedural rights, (i) waivers of broadly or vaguely stated rights, (j) provisions for exclusivity, election or cumulation of rights or remedies, (k) proxies, powers and trusts, (l) provisions prohibiting, restricting, or requiring consent to assignment or transfer of any right or property, and (m) the severability, if invalid, of provisions to the foregoing effect.

This opinion is for your benefit in connection with the Registration Statement and may be relied upon by you and by persons entitled to rely upon it pursuant to the applicable provisions of the Act. We consent to your filing this opinion as an exhibit to the Company’s Form 8-K dated December 11, 2017 and to the reference to our firm contained in the Prospectus under the heading “Legal Matters.” In giving such consent, we do not thereby admit that we are in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Act or the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder.

 

Very truly yours,
