Canadian Pacific Railway Limited files preliminary base shelf prospectus

18:08 EDT Monday, July 29, 2013

CALGARY, July 29, 2013 /CNW/ - Canadian Pacific Railway Limited (TSX:CP)(NYSE:CP) today announced that it has filed with the securities commission in each of the provinces and territories of Canada a Preliminary Base Shelf Prospectus and a corresponding registration statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.  When made final or effective, these filings will allow Canadian Pacific to issue or sell up to $2.5 billion of Common Shares, First Preferred Shares, Second Preferred Shares, Subscription Receipts, Warrants and Units in tranches as required over the next 25 months in Canada and the United States.

This filing is a renewal of Canadian Pacific's existing base shelf prospectus and was made to maintain financial flexibility.  Canadian Pacific has no immediate intentions to undertake an offering.

Canadian Pacific has enlarged its renewal preliminary base shelf prospectus, filed today, to permit sales by Pershing Square of up to 7 million Common Shares of Canadian Pacific by way of one or more prospectus offerings.  Any such sales would be in lieu of, not in addition to, the proposed sales previously announced by Pershing Square to be made on the New York and Toronto stock exchanges on a prospectus-exempt basis.

This news release does not constitute an offer to sell securities, nor is it a solicitation of an offer to buy securities, in any jurisdiction. All sales will be made through registered securities dealers in jurisdictions where the offering has been qualified for distribution.
