An amount equal to the net proceeds of the offering will finance and/or refinance eligible green projects described in the Company’s recently announced Green Financing Framework. Before the net proceeds of the offering go to eligible green projects, AIMCo Realty may use the net proceeds of the offering to repay existing debt, including under its senior credit facility, and for general corporate purposes. AIMCo Realty intends to utilize the net proceeds of the offering within 36 months of issuance.
