Great Ajax Corp. (NYSE: AJX) (the “Company”) announced today that the Company has closed a private placement of $30 million of the Company’s preferred stock and warrants to affiliates of each of Flexpoint Ford LLC, Magnetar Capital LLC and Wellington Management Company LLP pursuant to a securities purchase agreement dated May 7, 2020. The Company issued 1,112,400 shares of the Company’s 7.25% Series A Fixed-to-Floating Rate Preferred Stock, liquidation preference $25.00 per share, and 87,600 shares of the Company’s 5.00% Series B Fixed-to-Floating Rate Preferred Stock, liquidation preference $25.00 per share, each at a purchase price per share of $25.00, and two series of five-year warrants to purchase an aggregate of 1,500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share, at an exercise price of $10.00 per share. Each series of warrants includes a put option that allows the holder to sell the warrants to the Company at a specified put price on or after August 7, 2023. The Company expects to use the net proceeds from the private placement to acquire mortgage loans and mortgage-related assets consistent with the Company’s investment strategy. Piper Sandler & Co. served as the Company’s financial adviser in connection with the private placement.

In connection with the private placement, the Company has agreed to file a registration statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission registering the resale of the preferred stock and the shares of common stock underlying the warrants.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities, nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of such jurisdiction.
