As part of the capital plan, CenterPoint is selling 1.5 million common shares at $43.25 per share under the company’s shelf registration statement, resulting in net proceeds to the firm of about $63.2 million. Lehman Brothers is lead manager. First Union Securities will co-manage the offering. Net proceeds of the offering will repay line of credit balances incurred principally in conjunction with the Arsenal redevelopment.
