HALIFAX, Nov. 28, 2014 /CNW/ - Killam Properties Inc. (TSX: KMP) ("Killam") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced public share offering (the "Offering"), on a bought-deal basis, of common shares (the "Shares") to the public at a price of $10.55 per Share (the "Offering Price"). Killam issued 4,370,000 Shares, including 570,000 Shares on the exercise of an Over-Allotment Option (as defined below), for gross proceeds of approximately $46.1 million.
The Offering was made pursuant to an underwriting agreement with a syndicate of underwriters led by RBC Dominion Securities Inc. and including BMO Nesbitt Burns Inc., CIBC World Markets Inc., Scotia Capital Inc., TD Securities Inc., Canaccord Genuity Corp., Raymond James Ltd., Dundee Securities Ltd., GMP Securities L.P. and Brookfield Financial Corp. (collectively, the "Underwriters"). The Underwriters were granted the option (the "Over-Allotment Option") to purchase up to an additional 570,000 Shares at the Offering Price to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes, which they exercised in full.
Killam intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to partially fund the previously announced acquisition of interests in four apartments located in Mississauga, London, Ottawa and Calgary (the "Acquisitions") and for general corporate purposes. Killam's portion of the purchase price for the Acquisitions is $97.1 million. In the event Killam is unable to consummate one or more of the Acquisitions, Killam intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering otherwise allocated to such Acquisitions to fund future acquisitions and for general corporate purposes.
The Shares have not and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and state securities laws. Accordingly, the Shares may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an exemption from the registration requirements of that Act.
Killam Properties Inc., based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, is one of Canada's largest residential landlords, owning, operating, and developing multi-family apartments and manufactured home communities.
