Brokered Private Equity Placement
The Trust, Adventus Capital Partners Ltd. (the “Manager”) and Adventus Realty Limited Partnership (the “Partnership”) have engaged Industrial Alliance Securities Inc. as exclusive lead agent in connection with a brokered placement (“Offering”) of up to US$30.0 million. The Trust intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to pay down the balance of the mezzanine financing incurred to close the Barrett Lakes transaction and to invest in the future acquisition of direct or indirect interests in US office real estate properties. The Manager intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to pay the expenses of the Offering, including fees and expenses that may be paid by it in respect of the Offering, and for working capital. The Offering is expected to close by March 31, 2016.
Following the closing of the Offering, the Trust, through Industrial Alliance Securities Inc., intends to establish a grey market to enable unitholders to trade units of the Trust. Maintaining a grey market should allow for investor liquidity while the Trustee controls the process through the approval of all unit transfers. Any investor interested in selling or buying units of the Trust should directly contact a designated advisor at Industrial Alliances Securities Inc. Further contact details regarding the establishment of a grey market for units of the Trust will be provided in a subsequent news release following the closing of the Offering.
The Trust is pleased to announce the launch of a new company website (www.adventusrealty.com). The website hosts a log-in portal available to all unitholders to privately access certain information, including historical Financial Statements, Reports to Unitholders, and Conference Call transcripts. The uniform log-in credentials were provided directly to unitholders and/or their respective brokers in the March 9, 2016 news release.
