Item 8.01

Other Events.

On November 9, 2020, Rexford Industrial Realty, Inc. (the “Company”) and Rexford Industrial Realty, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”) entered into certain equity distribution agreements (the “Agreements”) with each of BofA Securities, Inc., BTIG, LLC, Capital One Securities, Inc., Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Jefferies LLC, Regions Securities LLC, Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated and Truist Securities, Inc. and, in certain cases, one of their respective affiliates (as agents (each individually, a “Sales Agent”, and together, the “Sales Agents”), (except for BTIG, LLC, Capital One Securities, Inc., Regions Securities LLC, Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated and Truist Securities, Inc.) as Forward Sellers (as defined below) and as Forward Purchasers (as defined below)), providing for the offer and sale of shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “common stock”), having an aggregate gross sales price of up to $750.0 million through the Sales Agents, as its sales agents or, if applicable, as Forward Sellers, or directly to the Sales Agents acting as principals from time to time in “at the market” offerings (the “Offering”). The Offering replaces the Company’s previous $550 million “continuous equity offering” pursuant to those certain equity distribution agreements, dated June 19, 2019 (the “Prior Offering”). Under the Prior Offering, the Company had offered and sold shares of its common stock having an aggregate gross sales price of $296,468,631 through November 9, 2020.

Sales of shares of common stock, if any, made through the Sales Agents, as the Company’s sales agents, or the Forward Sellers under the Agreements, may be made in transactions that are deemed to be “at the market offerings” as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, including sales made directly on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) or sales made to or through a market maker other than on an exchange. The Company or any of the Sales Agents, any of the Forward Sellers or any of the Forward Purchasers may at any time suspend the offering or terminate the Agreements pursuant to the terms of the Agreements. The Offering will terminate upon the earlier of (1) the sale of an aggregate of $750 million of shares of common stock pursuant to the Offering or (2) the termination of all of the Agreements. The Agreements may be terminated by the Sales Agents, the Forward Sellers, the Forward Purchasers or the Company at any time upon prior written notice, and by the Sales Agents, the Forward Sellers or the Forward Purchasers at any time in certain circumstances, including the Company’s failure to maintain a listing of its common stock on the NYSE or the occurrence of a material adverse change in the Company.

The Company may sell the shares of common stock in amounts and at times to be determined by the Company from time to time but has no obligation to sell any shares of common stock in the Offering. Actual sales will depend on a variety of factors to be determined by the Company from time to time, including (among others) market conditions, the trading price of the Company’s common stock, capital needs and determinations by the Company of the appropriate sources of funding for the Company. The Sales Agents and the Forward Sellers will make all sales on a best efforts basis using commercially reasonable efforts consistent with their normal trading and sales practices, on mutually agreed terms between the Sales Agents, the Forward Sellers, the Forward Purchasers, if applicable, and the Company. The offering of the shares by the Sales Agents and the Forward Sellers is subject to receipt and acceptance and subject to the Sales Agents’ and the Forward Sellers’s right to reject any order in whole or in part. The shares of common stock offered and sold through the Sales Agents, or the Forward Sellers, pursuant to the Agreement will be offered and sold through only one Sales Agent or the Forward Sellers on any given day.

The Agreements provide that a Sales Agent or a Forward Seller will be entitled to compensation, at a mutually agreed rate up to 2.0% of the gross proceeds from the sale of any of the shares of common stock sold under the Agreement to which such Sales Agent or such Forward Seller is a party. Under the terms of the Agreements, the Company may also sell shares of its common stock to each of the Sales Agents, as principal, at a price agreed upon at the time of sale. If the Company sells shares of its common stock to any Sales Agent as principal, the Company will enter into a separate terms agreement with the Sales Agent, setting forth the terms of such transaction, and the Company will describe the agreement in a separate prospectus supplement or pricing supplement. In connection with each forward sale agreement, the Company will pay the applicable Forward Seller in connection with such forward sale agreement, a commission, in the form of a reduction to the initial forward price under the related forward sale agreement, at a mutually agreed rate up to 2.0% of the gross sales price per share of the borrowed shares of its common stock sold through such Forward Seller during the applicable forward selling period for such shares (subject to certain possible adjustments to such gross sales price for daily accruals and any quarterly dividends having an “ex-dividend” date during such forward selling period).


The Agreements contemplate that, in addition to the issuance and sale by the Company of shares of its common stock to or through the Sales Agents, the Company may enter into separate forward sale agreements, with each of BofA Securities, Inc., Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, Jefferies LLC and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC or one of their respective affiliates (in such capacity, each, a “Forward Purchaser” and, collectively, the “Forward Purchasers”). If the Company enters into a forward sale agreement with any Forward Purchaser, the Company expects that such Forward Purchaser (or its affiliate) will attempt to borrow from third parties and sell, through the relevant Forward Seller, acting as sales agent for such Forward Purchaser, shares of its common stock to hedge such Forward Purchaser’s exposure under such forward sale agreement. The Company will not initially receive any proceeds from any sale of shares of its common stock borrowed by a Forward Purchaser (or its affiliate) and sold through a Forward Seller.

The Company currently expects to fully physically settle each forward sale agreement, if any, with the relevant Forward Purchaser on one or more dates specified by the Company on or prior to the maturity date of such forward sale agreement, in which case the Company expects to receive aggregate net cash proceeds at settlement equal to the number of shares specified in such forward sale agreement multiplied by the relevant forward price per share. However, subject to certain exceptions, the Company may also elect, in its sole discretion, to cash settle or net share settle all or any portion of its obligations under any forward sale agreement, in which case the Company may not receive any proceeds (in the case of cash settlement) or will not receive any proceeds (in the case of net share settlement), and the Company may owe cash (in the case of cash settlement) or shares of its common stock (in the case of net share settlement) to the relevant Forward Purchaser.

The Company intends to contribute the net proceeds it receives from the issuance and sale by the Company of any of its shares of common stock to or through the Sales Agents and any net proceeds it receives pursuant to any forward sale agreements with the relevant Forward Purchasers to the Operating Partnership in exchange for common units of the Operating Partnership. The Operating Partnership intends to use such net proceeds to fund potential acquisition opportunities, repay amounts outstanding from time to time under the Operating Partnership’s revolving credit facility or other debt financing obligations, fund the Company’s development or redevelopment activities and/or for general corporate purposes.

Any shares of common stock that may be offered and sold, pursuant to the Agreements will be offered and sold pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 6, 2020 (File No. 333-249932), a base prospectus dated November 6, 2020 and an accompanying prospectus supplement dated November 9, 2020 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.. This Current Report on Form 8-K/A shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any security nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.

The Agreements (which in the case of the Agreements with each of BofA Securities, Inc., Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Jefferies LLC include, as an exhibit thereto, the form of the forward sale agreement) were filed as Exhibits 1.1 through 1.10 to the Original Filing. The description of the Agreements does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreements (including, as applicable, such form of forward sale agreement included therein) filed as exhibits to the Original Filing and incorporated herein by reference.
