CALGARY, Nov. 10, 2016 /CNW/ - Mosaic Capital Corporation ("Mosaic") (TSX-V Symbols: M and M.PR.A) announced today the closing of its previously announced public offering (the "Offering") of 7% convertible unsecured senior subordinated debentures (the "Debentures"). The Offering was underwritten by a syndicate of underwriters led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. and including GMP Securities L.P., Raymond James Ltd., Echelon Wealth Partners Inc., Industrial Alliance Securities Inc., AltaCorp Capital Inc., Cormark Securities Inc., Haywood Securities Inc. and Mackie Research Capital Corporation (collectively, the "Underwriters"). Pursuant to the Offering, $15,000,000 principal amount of the Debentures were issued.
The Debentures have a face value of $1,000 per Debenture and bear interest at a rate of 7.0% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears on June 30 and December 31 in each year (each an "Interest Payment Date"), commencing on June 30, 2017, with a maturity date of December 31, 2021 (the "Maturity Date").
The Debentures are convertible into approximately 111.11 common shares of Mosaic (the "Shares") per $1,000 principal amount, at any time prior to the close of business on the earlier of the business day immediately preceding: (i) the Maturity Date; (ii) if called for redemption, the date fixed for redemption by Mosaic; or (iii) the payment date, if called for repurchase pursuant to a mandatory repurchase, at a conversion price of $9.00 per Share, subject to adjustment in certain events (the "Conversion Price"). Holders who convert their Debentures will receive, in addition to the applicable number of Shares, accrued and unpaid interest in respect thereof for the period from, and including, the most recent Interest Payment Date to, but excluding, the date of conversion.
The Debentures are not redeemable by Mosaic prior to December 31, 2019. On and after December 31, 2019, and prior to December 31, 2020, the Debentures may be redeemed in whole or in part from time to time at the option of Mosaic at par plus accrued and unpaid interest, provided that the volume-weighted average trading price of the Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange during the 20 consecutive trading days ending on the fifth trading day preceding the date on which the notice of redemption is given is not less than 125% of the Conversion Price. On and after June 30, 2020 and prior to the Maturity Date, Mosaic may, at its option, redeem the Debentures, in whole or in part, from time to time at par plus accrued and unpaid interest.
Subject to specified conditions, Mosaic will have the right to repay the outstanding principal amount of the Debentures, on maturity or redemption, through the issuance of Shares. Mosaic will also have the option in certain circumstances to satisfy its obligation to pay interest through the issuance and sale of additional Shares.
Mosaic will use the net proceeds from the Offering for general corporate purposes including future acquisitions, paying down existing credit facilities and working capital.
The Debentures issued under the Offering were offered by way of a short form prospectus supplement dated November 4, 2016 to its short form base shelf prospectus dated September 23, 2016, each of which has been filed under Mosaic's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. The Debentures are expected to be listed and posted for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "M.DB" at the open of markets today.
The Debentures and the Shares issuable on conversion thereof have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent U.S. registration or an applicable exemption from the U.S. registration requirements.
