NEW YORK, Oct. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — iStar (NYSE: STAR) announced today that it has received the requisite consents to implement proposed amendments to the indentures governing its (i) 4.75% Senior Notes due 2024 (the “2024 Notes”), (ii) 4.25% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “2025 Notes”), and (iii) 5.50% Senior Notes due 2026 (the “2026 Notes” and together with the 2024 Notes and the 2025 Notes, the “Notes”) in connection with its previously announced solicitation of consents (the “Consent Solicitation”) from holders of the applicable Notes. The Consent Solicitation was made pursuant to a Consent Solicitation Statement, dated October 21, 2021, (the “Consent Solicitation Statement”), to seek consents from holders of Notes to amend certain provisions of the indentures to align the indentures with the potential sale of the Company’s net lease assets and the execution of its stated corporate strategy to grow its ground lease and ground lease-adjacent businesses and simplify its portfolio.
In connection with the receipt of the requisite consents, the Company has executed supplemental indentures to the indentures governing the Notes to effect the proposed amendments with respect to each series of Notes. The Company expects to pay the applicable consent fees to holders of Notes on November 1, 2021 or promptly thereafter.

No authority has been passed upon the accuracy or adequacy of the Consent Solicitation Statement or any related documents, and it is unlawful and may be a criminal offense to make any representation to the contrary.
