TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 28, 2014) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
CHC Realty Capital Corp. ("CHC" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CHC) wishes to announce that it has completed the second and final tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement through the issuance of 15,531,994 subscription receipts for gross proceeds of $1,688,719. With the subscription receipts issued by the Company in its first closing effective August 18, 2014, the Company has issued a total of 68,390,693 subscription receipts under its private placement for total gross proceeds of $7,522,976.
The Company also wishes to announce that it has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") for its proposed acquisitions of student housing properties in Windsor, Ontario and Trois-Rivières, Québec. As previously disclosed, CHC intends to use the net proceeds of the private placement to complete the acquisitions and for general corporate purposes. CHC will require approximately $4.65 million of the proceeds from the financing for the acquisitions, not including transaction costs and with the balance of the purchase price for the properties being satisfied through mortgage financing. As previously announced, CHC terminated another smaller acquisition it was reviewing in Windsor, Ontario and therefore did not have to raise any financing for that acquisition under the private placement. The acquisitions are subject to final acceptance from the TSXV.
The proceeds from the final closing of the private placement less finder's fees paid in connection with the closing were deposited in escrow on closing. The funds held in escrow will be released to CHC and each subscription receipt will automatically convert into one common share of the Company without payment of additional consideration immediately prior to the completion of the acquisitions. If the escrow release conditions are not satisfied on or before October 31, 2014, the proceeds will be returned to subscribers. In addition, if one of the acquisitions is not to be completed, the funds required for it will be returned to subscribers.
All of the subscription receipts issued in this final closing of the private placement, as well as the underlying shares issuable upon the exercise thereof, are subject to statutory resale restrictions expiring on December 29, 2014.
In connection with the final closing, the Company paid a total of $108,964 in finder's fees to certain investment dealers who introduced subscribers to the Company under the private placement.
Closing of the private placement is subject to final acceptance from the TSXV.
The securities described herein have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States unless registered under the Act or unless an exemption from registration is available.
