FORT WORTH, TEXAS, July 12, 2007—Crescent Real Estate Equities Company (NYSE: CEI) today announced that it has delivered notices of redemption to holders of its 6-3/4% Series A Convertible Cumulative Preferred Shares and 9.50% Series B Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares.
On July 3, 2007, Crescent distributed the redemption notices to each of the holders of the Series A Preferred and Series B Preferred, indicating that Crescent determined to redeem all such shares that were outstanding on that date. The redemptions are anticipated to occur immediately prior to the consummation of the merger of Crescent with an affiliate of Morgan Stanley Real Estate, which is currently anticipated to occur on or about August 3, 2007. In the event this merger is not consummated, the redemptions will terminate automatically and without any action of any party.
Assuming the redemption date is August 3, 2007, Crescent will pay to each holder of Series A Preferred an amount of cash equal to $25.3656 ($25.00 redemption price plus accumulated and unpaid dividends of $0.3656) per share and to each holder of Series B Preferred an amount of cash equal to $25.5146 ($25.00 redemption price plus accumulated and unpaid dividends of $0.5146) per share. To the extent the redemptions occur later than August 3, 2007, the redemption prices of the Series A Preferred and Series B Preferred will be increased by $0.0047 and $0.0066 per day, respectively.
The Series A Preferred are convertible into common shares of beneficial interest of Crescent at a conversion price of $40.86 (equivalent to a conversion rate of 0.6119 common shares for each Series A Preferred share) at the election of the holders of the Series A Preferred. However, on the redemption date, the rights of the holders of the Series A Preferred and Series B Preferred, including the right of holders of Series A Preferred to convert their shares into common shares of Crescent and the right of holders of both Series A Preferred and Series B Preferred to receive distributions, will cease.
