ECN Capital Announces $60 Million Bought Deal Offering of 6.25% Listed Senior Unsecured Debentures

12/15/2021 | 08:50am EDT

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

TORONTO, Dec. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ECN Capital Corp. (TSX: ECN) (“ECN Capital” or the “Company”) today announced that it has entered into an agreement with a syndicate of underwriters (the “Underwriters”) led by CIBC Capital Markets, BMO Capital Markets, National Bank Financial and RBC Capital Markets, under which the Underwriters have agreed to purchase $60 million aggregate principal amount of listed senior unsecured debentures due December 31, 2027 (the “Debentures”) at a price of $1,000 per Debenture (the “Offering”). ECN Capital has also granted the Underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional $9 million aggregate principal amount of Debentures, on the same terms and conditions, exercisable in whole or in part, for a period of 30 days following closing of the Offering.

ECN Capital intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the Debentures to fund growth initiatives and for general corporate purposes. The Offering is expected to close on December 23, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.

The Debentures will be direct senior unsecured obligations of ECN Capital and will rank: (i) subordinate to all existing and future senior secured indebtedness of ECN Capital, including pursuant to its senior credit facility, (ii) subordinate to all existing and future secured indebtedness of ECN Capital that is not senior secured indebtedness, but only to the extent of the value of the assets securing such other secured indebtedness, (iii) pari passu with each debenture issued under the indenture under which the Debentures will be issued (the “Indenture”) and with all other present and future unsubordinated indebtedness of ECN Capital that is not senior secured indebtedness, including trade creditors, (iv) senior in right of payment to indebtedness of ECN Capital that by its terms is subordinated in right of payment to the Debentures, and (v) structurally subordinated to all existing and future obligations, including indebtedness and trade payables, of ECN Capital’s subsidiaries. The payment of principal and premium, if any, of, and interest on, the Debentures will be subordinated in right of payment to all senior secured indebtedness of ECN Capital, as will be set forth in the Indenture. The Indenture will not restrict ECN Capital or its subsidiaries from incurring additional indebtedness or from mortgaging, pledging or charging its properties to secure any indebtedness or liabilities. None of ECN Capital’s subsidiaries will guarantee the Debentures.

The Debentures will bear interest at a rate of 6.25% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears on June 30 and December 31 of each year, with the first interest payment on June 30, 2022. The first payment will include accrued and unpaid interest for the period from closing of the Offering to, but excluding, June 30, 2022. The Debentures will mature on December 31, 2027 (the “Maturity Date”).  

The Debentures will not be redeemable by ECN Capital prior to December 31, 2024 (the “First Call Date”). On and after the First Call Date and prior to December 31, 2025, the Debentures will be redeemable, in whole or in part, from time to time at ECN Capital’s option at a redemption price equal to 104.6875% of the principal amount of the Debentures redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, up to but excluding the date set for redemption. On and after December 31, 2025 and prior to December 31, 2026, the Debentures will be redeemable, in whole or in part, from time to time at ECN Capital’s option at a redemption price equal to 103.125% of the principal amount of the Debentures redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, up to but excluding the date set for redemption. On and after December 31, 2026 and prior to the Maturity Date, the Debentures will be redeemable, in whole or in part, from time to time, at ECN Capital’s option at par plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, up to but excluding the date set for redemption. ECN Capital shall provide not more than 60 nor less than 30 days’ prior notice of redemption of the Debentures. ECN Capital has the option to satisfy its obligations to repay the principal amount of the Debentures due at redemption or maturity by issuing and delivering that number of freely tradeable common shares in the capital of ECN Capital in accordance with the terms of the Indenture.

A prospectus supplement to the short form base shelf prospectus of ECN Capital dated October 12, 2021 will be filed with securities regulatory authorities in all provinces of Canada. The Offering is subject to customary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange.

The securities offered pursuant to the Offering have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the “1933 Act”) and may not be offered, sold or delivered, directly or indirectly, in the United States, except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
