Item 8.01.    Other Events

On September 25, 2019, we established a commercial paper program (the “Program”) pursuant to which we may issue unsecured commercial paper notes (the “Notes”). The Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by our subsidiary Alexandria Real Estate Equities, L.P. (the “Guarantor”), and will be offered under the exemption from registration contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Amounts available under the Program may be borrowed, repaid and re-borrowed from time to time. The aggregate face or principal amount of the Notes outstanding under the Program at any time may not exceed $750 million. The Notes will have maturities of up to 397 days from the date of issue. The Notes will rank equally in right of payment with any of our other unsecured and unsubordinated indebtedness but will be effectively subordinated to our existing and future mortgages and other secured indebtedness (to the extent of the value of the collateral securing such indebtedness) and to all existing and future preferred equity and liabilities, whether secured or unsecured, of our subsidiaries other than the Guarantor. The net proceeds of the issuances of the Notes are expected to be used for general working capital and other general corporate purposes. General corporate purposes may include the repayment of other debt, redemption of preferred stock and selective development, redevelopment or acquisition of properties. We expect our revolving credit facilities to serve as liquidity backstops for our borrowings under the Program.

Neither the Notes nor the guaranty thereof have been or will be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state laws. The information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any Notes or any guaranty thereof.
