Hines Global REIT, Inc. (the “Company”) has a distribution reinvestment plan (the “DRP”), pursuant to which the Company's stockholders may elect to have their distributions reinvested in shares of the Company's common stock. On June 26, 2012, the Company filed a registration statement on Form S-11 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for a follow-on public offering of up to $3,500,000,000 in shares of common stock, which it refers to as the “2nd Offering.” The SEC brought the 2nd Offering effective on February 4, 2013. On January 25, 2013, in connection with the anticipated commencement of the 2nd Offering, the board of directors of the Company announced a new primary offering price for shares of the Company's common stock, effective upon the commencement of the 2nd Offering, of $10.28, an increase from the previous offering price of $10.00. Additionally, shares of common stock sold under the DRP are sold at a price equal to 95% of the price of shares in the Company's then-current primary offerings. As a result, effective February 4, 2013, the price of shares of common stock sold under the DRP increased from $9.50 to $9.77.
