/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
VANCOUVER, May 21, 2014 /CNW/ - Pure Multi-Family REIT LP ("Pure Multi" or the "REIT LP") (TSXV: RUF.U, RUF.DB.U; OTCQX: PMULF) is pleased to announce the closing of a private placement as previously announced in our news release of May 8, 2014 (the "Private Placement").
The REIT LP issued a total of 4,395,824 units (the "Units") at a price of US$4.55 per Unit for gross proceeds of $US20,000,999.20. Each Unit consists of one Pure Multi Class A limited partnership unit (a "Class A Unit") and one-half of one Class A Unit purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional Class A Unit (a "Warrant Unit") from Pure Multi at a price of US$5.15 per Class A Unit until November 20, 2016. The Class A Units issued under the Private Placement are, and the Warrant Units may be, if applicable, subject to a hold period and may not be sold, transferred or otherwise traded before September 21, 2014. The Warrants will not be listed for trading. The Private Placement was modestly upsized from that originally announced due to strong institutional support.
Pure Multi paid Canaccord Genuity Corp. a finder's fee in the amount of $34,875.75 and an advisory fee of $45,500 in connection with the completion of the Private Placement to certain of the subscribers, in accordance with TSX Venture Exchange policies.
Steve Evans, CEO of Pure Multi, said, "Today's US$20 million private placement includes a strategic lead investment from Alberta Investment Management Corporation ("AIMCo"), on behalf of certain of its clients. We believe this private placement was an efficient means of raising capital, and allowed our lead investor and several other existing institutional unitholders to participate. We believe the value of having these quality institutional unitholders will become evident as we execute upon our growth strategy."
The net proceeds from the Private Placement will be used primarily to fund prospective acquisitions of income producing multi-family properties and for general corporate purposes.
Subsequent to the issue of the new Units from treasury, Pure Multi has 28,484,824 Class A Units issued and outstanding.
