TORONTO, Oct. 28, 2020 /CNW/ – Tricon Residential (TSX: TCN) (“Tricon” or the “Company”), a rental housing company catering to the middle-market demographic throughout the United States and Canada, announced today that it has priced its 2020-SFR2 securitization transaction.
The transaction, involving the issuance and sale of six offered classes of fixed-rate certificates with a total face amount of $440.5 million, was priced at a weighted average coupon of approximately 1.83% with a term to maturity of approximately seven years. The anticipated transaction proceeds represent 67.0% of the value of the securitized portfolio of 3,319 single-family rental properties. The transaction is expected to close on or about November 10, 2020.
The net transaction proceeds will be used to repay the Company’s outstanding 2016-SFR1 securitized financing, refinance short term debt outstanding on the Company’s single-family rental warehouse credit facility and repatriate approximately $59 million for corporate debt reduction and single-family rental home acquisitions.
“I would like to congratulate our team on another well-executed transaction with an extremely attractive interest rate, as well as the longest term to maturity and lowest loan-to-value issued in the single-family rental sector this year. Strong demand for this transaction was further evidenced by participation from 38 investors, including 20 new investors to Tricon, and an order book that was 4.5 times subscribed,” said Gary Berman, President and CEO of Tricon. “Following this transaction, which will refinance the debt on over 3,300 of our wholly-owned homes, Tricon will have meaningfully improved its consolidated debt profile by reducing the average effective interest rate by 20 bps to approximately 3.2% currently, and extending the weighted-average maturity by 4 months, to 3.8 years.”
The offering of certificates is being made through Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC as sole structuring agent, joint bookrunner, and co-lead manager, BofA Securities, Inc. as joint bookrunner and co-lead manager, Citigroup Global Markets Inc. as joint bookrunner and co-lead manager, and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. as joint bookrunner and co-lead manager.
The various classes of offered certificates have been rated on a preliminary basis by Moody’s Investors Service and Morningstar Credit Ratings.
