CALGARY, AB, March 9, 2021 /CNW/ - Alaris Equity Partners Income Trust ("Alaris" or the "Trust") announces today that under its bought deal financing (the "Offering") which closed on March 3, 2021, the underwriters of the Offering have partially exercised and concluded their over-allotment option to purchase an additional 596,875 trust units of the Trust (the "Trust Units") at the offering price of $16.00 per Trust Unit for additional gross proceeds of $9,550,000. As a result of closing of the over-allotment option, Alaris issued an aggregate of 5,909,375 Trust Units pursuant to the Offering for aggregate gross proceeds of $94,550,000. The net proceeds from the exercise of over-allotment option will be used by Alaris to repay outstanding indebtedness under its subsidiary's credit facility (the "Facility"), including amounts recently drawn to fund Alaris' recently announced investments in Brown & Settle Investments, LLC and 3E, LLC.
The Offering was conducted through a syndicate of underwriters co-led by Acumen Capital Finance Partners Limited, Cormark Securities Inc., CIBC Capital Markets, National Bank Financial Inc. and RBC Capital Markets (collectively, the "Underwriters").
In connection with the closing of the over-allotment option, Alaris and the Underwriters have agreed to terminate the remaining and unexercised portion of the over-allotment option and the Underwriters have advised Alaris that all distribution activities relating the Offering have ceased.
About the Trust:
Alaris, through its subsidiaries, provides alternative financing to private companies ("Partners") in exchange for distributions, dividends or interest (collectively, "Partner Distributions") with the principal objective of generating stable and predictable cash flows for distribution payments to its unitholders. Partner Distributions are adjusted annually based on the percentage change of a "top-line" financial performance measure such as gross margin or same store sales and rank in priority to the owner's common equity position.
This press release is not an offer of Trust Units for sale in the United States. The Trust Units may not be offered or sold in the United States.
