/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES. ANY FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF U.S. SECURITIES LAW./
TORONTO, April 12, 2017 /CNW/ - Lorne Park Capital Partners Inc. (TSX-V: LPC) ("LPCP" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce a proposed non-brokered private placement offering of non-convertible and unsecured debentures of the Corporation (the "Debentures") for an aggregate principal amount of up to CAD$2,000,000 (the "Offering"), subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange. The Debentures will be issued in denominations of $1,000, subject to a minimum subscription of $10,000. The Debentures will bear an interest at a fixed rate of 8% per annum, which will be calculated from their date of issue (the "Closing Date") to be paid semi-annually in arrears, and will have a maturity date of five years ("Maturity Date").
Each year during their term, holders of the Debentures (the "Debenture Holders") may request redemption of all or part of their Debenture up to 90 days prior to the anniversary of the Closing Date (the "Anniversary Date"). On or about the Anniversary Date, the Corporation may, at its discretion, repay some, all or none of the redemption requests, on a pro-rated basis in the event that the total redemption requests exceed the total amount to be redeemed by the Corporation.
The Corporation proposes to issue to each Debenture subscriber 250 common share purchase warrants (the "Warrants") for each $1,000 principal amount of the Debenture, up to a maximum aggregate of 500,000 Warrants. Each Warrant will entitle a Debenture Holder to purchase one common share of the Corporation at an exercise price of $0.50 per common share for a period of one year from the Closing Date. The Warrants will not be transferable, but the common shares issuable on the exercise of the Warrants (the "Warrant Shares") will be listed on the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Debentures will be sold pursuant to exemptions from the prospectus requirements to purchasers in Canada. The Debentures may also be sold outside of Canada, provided that no registration or prospectus filing or comparable obligation arises.
The Debentures will not be listed on any stock exchange and there will not be a market for the Debentures. In accordance with applicable securities laws, the Debentures, Warrants, and Warrant Shares issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a minimum four month hold period.
The Corporation may pay a finder's fee of up to 5% in accordance with applicable securities laws and policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The proceeds from the Offering will be used: (a) to fund the Corporation's growth initiatives, including investments in investment managers and the development of the Corporation's wealth management distribution platform; and (b) for general working capital purposes.
The closing of the Offering will be subject to customary terms and conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange for the issuance of the Debentures, Warrants and Warrant Shares.
The Debentures will be eligible for RRSP and TFSA accounts.
