TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 6, 2014) - CHC Realty Capital Corp. ("CHC" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CHC) wishes to announce that following negotiations with a lead institutional investor for the Company's previously announced brokered private placement, CHC has agreed to change the terms of the private placement so that the common share purchase warrant to be issued as part of the offered units will be a full warrant rather than a half warrant and the exercise period for the warrant will be extended from two to three years. All other terms of the private placement remain as previously announced.

As revised, the Company plans to raise a minimum of $8.15 million and a maximum of $10.85 million under the private placement through the issuance of a minimum of 74,090,910 units and a maximum of 98,636,364 units at a price of $0.11 per unit. Each unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant of the Company. Each warrant will be exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.13 per share for a period of three years from issuance.

The net proceeds from the private placement will be used to complete the Company's previously announced acquisition of an apartment building located at 675 Richmond Street, London, Ontario (368 beds in 187 apartments as well as 12,642 s.f. of commercial space having a purchase price of $55.0 million).

The private placement and the acquisition remain subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. CHC has received conditional approval of the private placement and the acquisition from the TSX Venture Exchange.
