Data Center REIT Digital Realty Announces New Preferred

Giant data center REIT Digital Realty (NYSE:DLR) has announced a new preferred stock issue.

Being a REIT this issue will be cumulative, non qualified and redeemable starting in 2024.

The company has numerous preferred issues outstanding and while the company has not announced a definite redemption there is certainly a possibility that this will occur with the DLR-G 5.875% issue which is the only issue currently redeemable.

Their outstanding issues can be seen here.

The preliminary prospectus can be read here.

    1. Not surprised by 5.2%. Not interested either unless it opens below under Par. I will share than I ran data centers my whole career. Moving data centers is a huge task, so their existing business so be very very sticky.

      1. SteveA–thanks. I actually like the company from a business perspective–BUT any perpetual at this coupon holds little interest for me at this time. Of course if rates continue downward I reserve the right to change my tune.

    1. I’m curious where you got the 5.2 % so early as it wasn’t on or DLR website. Thanks for sharing.

  1. Very interested to see this coupon. If they are going to call DLR-G, you would think about 5.4%-5.5% as the maximum coupon.

    But based upon their last issue this is a mixed IG issue (IG by Moody’s, Just below by SP). That would suggest to me closer to 5.5% – 5.7% which would not really save much at all by calling DLR-G.

    Are they going to try a real low coupon of 5.2% – 5.4% ?

    1. SteveA–only God knows for sure. Minimally it should keep the issue around $25 with the call fear making it a possible dividend capture play in the future.
