Item 8.01Other Events.


On April 28, 2021, Safehold Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release, on behalf of Safehold Operating Partnership LP (the “Operating Partnership”), announcing the pricing of the Operating Partnership’s offering of $400,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 2.800% senior notes due 2031 (the “Notes”), which priced at 99.127%. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.


Additionally, on April 28, 2021, the Company, the Operating Partnership and SFTY Manager LLC entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and BofA Securities, Inc. with respect to offering of the Notes, which will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by the Company. The closing of the sale of the Notes is expected to occur on May 7, 2021, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is attached as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.


The Notes will be issued pursuant to a base indenture (the “Base Indenture”), to be dated May 7, 2021, by and among the Operating Partnership, as issuer, and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee, to be supplemented by a first supplemental indenture (together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), by and among the Operating Partnership, as issuer, the Company, as guarantor, and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee, to be dated May 7, 2021. The Indenture will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on a subsequent Current Report on Form 8-K.


The Notes were offered pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 18, 2021 (Registration Nos. 333-253262 and 333-253262-01), a base prospectus, dated February 18, 2021, and a prospectus supplement, dated April 29, 2021, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.


The Operating Partnership intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay borrowings under its unsecured revolving credit facility and for general corporate purposes, which may include making additional investments in ground leases.


The description of the Underwriting Agreement in this Current Report on Form 8-K is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by the terms of the Underwriting Agreement.


Forward-Looking Statements


Certain statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1 hereto, contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, which are based on current expectations, forecasts and assumptions that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially. Forward-looking statements relate to expectations, beliefs, projections, future plans and strategies, anticipated events or trends and similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts. Forward-looking statements involve numerous risks and uncertainties and you should not rely on them as predictions of future events. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “believe,” “project,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” “strategy,” “plan,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “will be,” “seek,” “approximately,” “pro forma,” “contemplate,” “aim,” “continue,” or the negative of these words and phrases or similar words or phrases which are predictions of or indicate future events or trends and which do not relate solely to historical matters. While forward-looking statements reflect the Company’s good faith beliefs, assumptions and expectations, they are not guarantees of future performance. For example, the fact that the offering described above has priced may imply that the offering will close, but the closing is subject to conditions customary in transactions of this type and the closing may be delayed or may not occur at all. For a further discussion of the factors that could cause the Company’s future results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements, see the reports and other filings by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company’s Annual Reports on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which are based only on information currently available to us (or to third parties making the forward-looking statements). The Company disclaims any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement to reflect changes in underlying assumptions or factors, of new information, data or methods, future events or other changes.
