TORONTO, March 2, 2015 /CNW/ - Canadian Tire Corporation (TSX:CTC, TSX:CTC.a) today announced that it has called a meeting of holders (Noteholders) of its 6.25% medium term notes due April 13, 2028 and 6.32% medium term notes due February 24, 2034 issued pursuant to the terms of a trust indenture dated June 4, 1993 (as amended and supplemented to date, the 1993 Trust Indenture), in order to consider amending the terms of such notes and the 1993 Trust Indenture. There are an aggregate principal amount of $350 million of such notes issued and outstanding on the date hereof.
CTC believes that the proposed amendments would provide it with greater flexibility to manage and finance its business. They would also reduce administrative inefficiencies by providing more consistent terms across all of the Corporation's medium term notes, including both those issued under the 1993 Trust Indenture and those issued under the Corporation's Trust Indenture dated March 14, 2005. The record date for determining Noteholders entitled to vote at the meeting is February 27, 2015 and the meeting date is March 30, 2015.
An information circular and related proxy materials will be mailed to Noteholders and will also be available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
