CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 24, 2016) - Tervita Corporation and certain of its affiliates ("Tervita" or the "Company") announced today that it has concluded an increase to the previously announced New Investment Offering and that it has filed a Second Information Supplement to the Management Information Circular, as supplemented by the First Information Supplement, with respect to the Plan of Arrangement and the Recapitalization (the "Second Information Supplement").
Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms used herein have the meanings ascribed to them in the Information Circular or the First Information Supplement, as applicable.
"We are very pleased with the significant progress we are making towards recapitalizing Tervita," said Chris Synek, President and CEO. "The increase to our New Investment Offering demonstrates a commitment from our Plan Sponsors, positioning us with a strong balance sheet and ensuring we have sufficient capital to prosper and grow."
The Second Information Supplement supplements and modifies certain of the information included in the Information Circular and First Information Supplement in connection with, among other things, Tervita's previously announced settlement (the "Settlement") with certain Secured Noteholders of the Prepayment Dispute (being the dispute relating to Tervita's obligation to pay any early redemption payments or similar payments in connection with the repayment of the Secured Notes). Secured Noteholders holding more than 85% of the Secured Notes have agreed to the Settlement.
The Second Information Supplement includes a description of the following items:
- amendments made to the Recapitalization Term Sheet and Unsecured Noteholder Support Agreement in connection with, among other things, the settlement of the Prepayment Dispute;
