Other Events.

Entry into Purchase Agreement

On April 25, 2022, certain subsidiaries and affiliates (the “Sellers”) of Annaly Capital Management, Inc., a Maryland corporation (the “Company” or “Annaly”), entered into a Commercial Loan Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Ares Capital Management LLC (the “Purchaser”) pursuant to which the Sellers will sell all of the commercial loan interests held by the Middle Market Lending (“MML”) business operated by Annaly (the “Transactions”).

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Purchaser will pay an aggregate purchase price of approximately $2.4 billion, subject to certain adjustments specified therein. The aggregate purchase price represents substantially all of the assets of the MML business held on the Company’s balance sheet as well as assets managed for third parties. The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants by each party that are subject, in some cases, to specified exceptions and qualifications contained in the Purchase Agreement.

Each party’s obligation to consummate the Transactions pursuant to the Purchase Agreement is subject to customary closing conditions as set out therein, including, among others, (i) subject to certain exceptions, the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the parties; (ii) performance in all material respects by each of the parties of its covenants and agreements; (iii) receipt of certain third-party consents; and (iv) the absence of any law or order from any governmental entity prohibiting consummation of the Transaction. The parties expect that the transfer of all of the commercial loan interests held by the Sellers will be completed by the end of the second quarter of 2022.

The Purchase Agreement includes certain customary termination rights for each of the Sellers and the Purchaser.
