TORONTO, Jan. 18, 2017 /CNW/ - Mattamy Group Corporation ("Mattamy"), North America's largest privately owned homebuilder, announced today the completion and funding of a US dollar offering of $100 million aggregate principal amount, senior unsecured notes and key operating results for the second quarter ended November 30, 2016. The Notes offering is a tack-on issue from the recent issue of senior notes that closed in December 2016.
The net proceeds from the Notes offering will be used for general corporate purposes. The tack-on issue is on a bought-deal basis.
As with the previous transaction, Mattamy will continue to be well-positioned with:
- A conservative, expanded and cost-efficient long-term unsecured capital base
- Increased liquidity to support existing development plans and opportunistic land acquisition
- Extended maturity profile through 2023 to weather any changes to the Canadian and U.S. economic and homebuilding cycle
- Improved mix between secured and unsecured borrowings
The notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state laws. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase the notes or any other securities, and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any state of jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
Credit Suisse and RBC Capital Markets served as joint physical book runners for the offering.
