/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES./
Tricon Residential Inc. ("Tricon" or the "Company") (TSX:TCN.TO), an owner and operator of single-family rental homes and multi-family rental apartments in the United States and Canada, announced today that it has completed its previously announced public offering (the "Offering") of common shares of the Company ("Common Shares") to a syndicate of underwriters co-led by RBC Capital Markets, Scotia Capital, Morgan Stanley and Stifel GMP (collectively, the "Underwriters") on a "bought deal" basis.
A total of 15,480,725 Common Shares were issued at a price of C$13.00 per Common Share for total gross proceeds to the Company of approximately C$201 million. This includes gross proceeds from the full exercise of the over-allotment option granted to the Underwriters to purchase an additional 1,762,726 Common Shares as well as gross proceeds from the private placement of an additional 256,499 Common Shares to Blackstone Real Estate Income Trust, Inc. ("BREIT") in connection with the exercise of the over-allotment option and pursuant to BREIT's participation right in respect of the Offering. Upon completion of the Offering, BREIT's effective ownership interest in the Company remains at approximately 12.7% (assuming the exchange of its preferred units of Tricon PIPE LLC for Common Shares).
The Company intends to allocate substantially all of the net proceeds of the Offering to fund the Company's future growth initiatives, including a portion of the capital commitments expected to be deployed through new and anticipated investment vehicles, and any balance used to fund other growth initiatives that may be pursued in the Company's businesses and/or for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Common Shares have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or the securities laws of any state of the United States, and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of any, U.S. persons (as such term is defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act), except pursuant to transactions exempt from registration under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any Common Shares in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons.
