NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

TORONTO, Sept. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CT Real Estate Investment Trust (“CT REIT”) (TSX: CRT.UN) and a subsidiary of Canadian Tire Corporation, Limited (“Canadian Tire”, “CTC” or the “Company”) (TSX: CTC) (TSX: CTC.a) announced today that they have entered into an agreement with a syndicate of underwriters led by CIBC Capital MarketsRBC Capital Markets, and BMO Capital Markets (the “Underwriters”) pursuant to which the Underwriters will purchase, on a bought-deal basis, an aggregate of 16,846,000 units of CT REIT (“Units”) at a price of $14.25 per Unit (the “Offering”).  The Offering consists of a secondary offering of 10,530,000 units by CTC and a treasury offering of 6,316,000 units by CT REIT.  On closing of the Offering, CTC and CT REIT will receive gross proceeds of $150 million and $90 million, respectively.   The Offering is expected to close on or about September 19, 2019, and is subject to customary conditions, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange

CTC and CT REIT have granted the Underwriters an over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 2,457,000 units in the aggregate on the same terms and conditions, exercisable at any time, in whole or in part, for a period of 30 days following the closing of the Offering.  If the over-allotment option is exercised in full, the gross proceeds of the Offering to CTC and CT REIT will be $175 million and $100 million, respectively.

The net proceeds of the secondary offering will be used by CTC to support the continued investment in its business, including recently completed acquisitions, and for general corporate purposes.  The net proceeds of the treasury offering will be used by CT REIT to fund the REIT’s investment program and to pay down amounts owing on its credit facility.

“This offering strengthens CT REIT by increasing its public float, demonstrates our ample financial flexibility and is consistent with our capital allocation strategy,” said Stephen Wetmore, President and CEO, Canadian Tire Corporation.  “Real estate plays an integral role in Canadian Tire’s strategy and CT REIT provides an effective channel for our ongoing investment in this core asset.  Canadian Tire is very pleased with the performance of CT REIT since its IPO in 2013 and remains committed to the long-term success of CT REIT.”

“With the enhanced trading liquidity from the sale of Units by CTC and CT REIT, we expect to benefit from CT REIT’s eventual inclusion in certain broader market indices” said Ken Silver, President and CEO, CT REIT.  “We look forward to continuing our strategic relationship with CTC and this Offering supports the execution of our proven growth strategy to generate value for our unitholders.” 

Following the transaction, CTC will own an effective interest of approximately 69.4% in CT REIT (68.4% if the over-allotment option is fully exercised).  CTC intends to remain the majority unitholder of CT REIT over the long-term.

Canadian Tire will remain CT REIT’s most significant tenant under long term leases, the majority of which contain annually escalating rental rates.  At June 30, 2019, CTC represented 93.1% of total gross leasable area and 92.4% of annualized base minimum rent.

The Units will be offered in all provinces and territories of Canada pursuant to CT REIT’s base shelf prospectus, dated April 23, 2019, as supplemented by a prospectus supplement to be filed with the Canadian securities regulators in all of the provinces and territories of Canada.  The Units being offered have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 and state securities laws.
