Excel Trust Announces Receipt of Requisite Consents

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2015) - Excel Trust, L.P. announced today that it has received the requisite consents from holders of its 4.625% Senior Notes due 2024 (the "Notes") to adopt the proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Notes pursuant to its previously announced tender offer (the "Tender Offer") and consent solicitation (the "Consent Solicitation"). The Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation are being conducted following the completion of the mergers of Excel Trust, Inc. and Excel Trust, L.P. with entities affiliated with Blackstone Property Partners L.P.

As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 20, 2015, the withdrawal deadline and the consent payment deadline for the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation, Excel Trust, L.P. had received valid tenders and related consents in respect of $249,176,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes, representing approximately 99.67% of the outstanding Notes. As the withdrawal deadline has now passed, Notes tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer may no longer be withdrawn and consents delivered pursuant to the Consent Solicitation may no longer be revoked.

The Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation are being made upon the terms and subject to the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated August 6, 2015 (as it may be amended or supplemented, the "Offer to Purchase") and the related Letter of Transmittal and Consent (as it may be amended or supplemented, the "Letter of Transmittal"). The Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on September 3, 2015, unless extended or earlier terminated (the "Expiration Time"). Notes tendered after 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 20, 2015 but at or prior to the Expiration Time will be eligible to receive the tender offer consideration offered in the Tender Offer of $970.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes so tendered but not the consent payment of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes offered pursuant to the Consent Solicitation.

The Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation are subject to a number of conditions that are set forth in the Offer to Purchase, including, without limitation, the satisfaction or waiver of the financing condition, as more fully described in the Offer to Purchase.

Excel Trust, L.P. has engaged Wells Fargo Securities, LLC to act as the dealer manager for the Tender Offer and solicitation agent for the Consent Solicitation and D.F. King & Co., Inc. to serve as the tender agent and information agent for the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation.
