TORONTO, Nov. 26, 2012 /CNW/ - Timbercreek Senior Mortgage Investment Corporation (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has filed an amended and restated preliminary prospectus (the "Amended and Restated Preliminary Prospectus), amending and restating the preliminary prospectus of the Company dated November 16, 2012, with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces and territories of Canada. A copy of the Amended and Restated Preliminary Prospectus will be available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).
The Amended and Restated Preliminary Prospectus qualifies the distribution (the "Offering") of up to $100 million of Class A shares ("Class A Shares") and/or Class B shares ("Class B Shares") of the Company. The price per Class A Share and the price per Class B Share, as well as the minimum amount under the Offering, have not yet been determined by the Company. The Class B Shares are designed for fee-based accounts with a registered dealer or institutional investors and will not be listed on a stock exchange, but are convertible into Class A Shares. The outstanding Class A Shares are listed and posted for trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "MTG".
A syndicate of agents led by CIBC, Raymond James Ltd., RBC Capital Markets and TD Securities Inc. and including GMP Securities L.P., National Bank Financial Inc., BMO Capital Markets, Scotiabank, Macquarie Capital Markets Canada Ltd., Manulife Securities Incorporated and Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the "Agents") will commence marketing of the Offering.
Prospective purchasers may subscribe for such Class A Shares and/or Class B Shares through one of the Agents.
The investment objectives of the Company are, with a primary focus on capital preservation, to acquire and maintain a diversified portfolio of Customized First Mortgages that generate attractive, stable returns in order to permit the Company to pay monthly distributions to its shareholders. The Company is managed by Timbercreek Asset Management Ltd. (the "Manager"). The Manager will also act as portfolio adviser for the Company and is an investment management company.
Although the long-term targeted aggregate annual yield (net of all fees and expenses of the Company) of the Manager is the two-year Government of Canada bond yield plus 350 basis points, for the period ending June 30, 2013, the Manager is targeting to deliver a return consistent with the previous nine months cash distributions, which would result in an annualized yield of approximately 6% per Class A Share (based on an issue price of $10.00 per Class A Share), net of fees and expenses of the Company.
