Estimated solely for purposes of calculating the filing fee pursuant to Rule 0-11(d) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The Transaction Valuation was calculated on the basis of the sum of (i) the product of (x) 43,672,637 shares of common stock of CoreSite Realty Corporation (“CoreSite”) issued and outstanding (other than shares subject to restricted stock awards of CoreSite and performance stock awards of CoreSite) and (y) the offer price of $170.00 per share, (ii) the product of (x) 80,710 shares of common stock issuable pursuant to outstanding restricted stock units of CoreSite and (y) the offer price of $170.00 per share, and (iii) the product of (x) 518,419 shares of common stock subject to outstanding restricted stock awards of CoreSite and performance stock awards of Coresite and (y) the offer price of $170.00 per share. The calculation of the filing fee is based on information provided by CoreSite as of November 23, 2021.

**

The filing fee was calculated in accordance with Rule 0-11 under the Exchange Act and Fee Rate Advisory #1 for fiscal year 2022, effective October 1, 2021, by multiplying the transaction value by 0.00009270.

This Amendment No. 6 (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO filed by Appleseed Merger Sub LLC, a Maryland limited liability company (“Purchaser”), and a wholly owned direct subsidiary of Appleseed Holdco LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Holdco”), and a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of American Tower Investments LLC, a California limited liability company (“Parent”), and a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of American Tower Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“ATC”), with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 29, 2021 (together with any subsequent amendments and supplements thereto, including this Amendment, the “Schedule TO”). The Schedule TO relates to the offer by Purchaser to purchase all of the outstanding shares of common stock, $0.01 par value per share (“Shares”), of CoreSite Realty Corporation, a Maryland corporation (“CoreSite”), at a price of $170.00 per Share, without interest and subject to any applicable withholding taxes, net to the seller in cash, upon the terms and subject to the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase dated November 29, 2021 (together with any amendments or supplements thereto, the “Offer to Purchase”) and in the accompanying Letter of Transmittal (together with any amendments or supplements thereto and with the Offer to Purchase, the “Offer”), which are annexed to and filed with the Schedule TO as Exhibits (a)(1)(A) and (a)(1)(B), respectively.

Except as otherwise set forth in this Amendment, the information set forth in the Schedule TO remains unchanged and is incorporated herein by reference to the extent relevant to the items in this Amendment. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meanings ascribed to them in the Schedule TO.

 

ITEMS

1 THROUGH 9 and ITEM 11.

The information set forth in the Offer to Purchase and Items 1 through 9 and Item 11 of the Schedule TO (to the extent such Items incorporate by reference the information contained in the Offer to Purchase), is hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following paragraphs:

Consummation of the Offer and the Mergers.

The Offer expired at one minute after 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on December 27, 2021. The Depositary advised Purchaser that, as of the expiration of the Offer, a total of 31,443,126 Shares were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn, representing approximately 71.15% of the Shares outstanding as of the expiration of the Offer.

As of the expiration of the Offer, the number of Shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer satisfied the Minimum Tender Condition, and all other conditions to the Offer were satisfied or waived. Purchaser has irrevocably accepted for payment all Shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer.

ATC, Parent, Holdco and Purchaser expect to complete the acquisition of CoreSite on December 28, 2021 by (a) consummating the REIT Merger in accordance with Section 3-106.1 of the MGCL, (b) substantially concurrently with the REIT Merger, consummating the OP Merger and (c) following the REIT Merger and the OP Merger, consummating the Holdco Merger, in each case, pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement. At the effective time of the REIT Merger, each Share issued and outstanding immediately prior to such time (other than (i) certain restricted Shares and (ii) Shares held by the Parent Parties) will be converted into the right to receive an amount in cash equal to the Offer Price. At the effective time of the OP Merger, each partnership unit issued and outstanding and held by a limited partner of the OP (excluding CoreSite) will be converted into the right to receive an amount in cash equal to the Offer Price.

Following consummation of the REIT Merger, the Shares will be delisted and will cease trading on the NYSE.

ATC, Parent, Holdco and Purchaser intend to take steps to cause the termination of the registration of the Shares under the Exchange Act and to suspend all of CoreSite’s reporting obligations under the Exchange Act as promptly as practicable.

The full text of the press release issued by ATC on December 28, 2021 in connection with the expiration of the Offer and the Mergers is attached hereto as Exhibit (a)(5)(H) and is incorporated herein by reference.”
