INDIANAPOLIS-After Wednesday’s news that Duke Realty Corp. plans to sell 65.4 million shares of common stock, the company has issued a follow-up announcement detailing the pricing. The shares will be sold at $7.65 per share. Duke executives estimate the offering will bring in net proceeds of $479.8 million.

Also as part of the deal, the underwriters have been given a 30-day option to purchase an additional 9.8 million shares, adding $73.4 million to the total. The money will be used to repay borrowings of its unsecured line of credit as well as general corporate purposes.

At the close of business Wednesday, Duke’s stock was trading at $8.44 per share.

The prospectus has been filed with the Securities Exchange Commission and lists Merrill Lynch & Co., J.P. Morgan Securities Inc. and Morgan Stanley & Co. Inc. as joint book-running managers.
