TORONTO, Dec. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Home Trust Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Home Capital Group Inc. (TSX: HCG) today announced that it has successfully closed its initial issue of institutional five-year deposit notes in the principal amount of $300 million. The Company expects that it will be a regular issuer of deposit notes, likely on a semi-annual basis. The deposit notes rank equally and rateably with all present and future unsecured and unsubordinated liabilities of the Company and are not eligible for CDIC insurance.
The issue followed a very well attended 4-day investor roadshow. Strong investor demand was evident with a significant oversubscription and broad distribution across 33 buyers.
"The well-received offering provides a liquid benchmark and supportive price point, paving the way for subsequent offerings," said Gerald M. Soloway, CEO of Home Capital and Home Trust. "We are very pleased with the success of this issue."
