TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2021 /CNW/ – Tricon Residential Inc. (“Tricon” or the “Company”) (TSX: TCN) (NYSE: TCN), an owner and operator of single-family rental homes and multi-family rental apartments in the United States and Canada, today announced the closing of its previously-announced marketed public offering of common shares of Tricon (“Common Shares”) in the United States and Canada (the “Offering”), representing Tricon’s initial public offering in the United States and listing of the Common Shares on the New York Stock Exchange, as well as its concurrent private placement of Common Shares (the “Private Placement”) to Blackstone Real Estate Investment Trust, Inc. (“BREIT”).
A total of 46,248,746 Common Shares were sold, including 41,400,000 to the underwriters in the Offering at a price of US$12.40 per share (the “Offering Price”) (inclusive of 5,400,000 Common Shares following the exercise in full by the underwriters of their over-allotment option) and 4,848,746 Common Shares to BREIT in the Private Placement at a price of approximately US$11.75 per share (the Offering Price net of underwriting discounts), for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately US$570 million.
“Tricon’s U.S. IPO is the culmination of a decade-long transformation from a small asset manager invested in for-sale housing to a tech-enabled rental housing company focused on the growing single-family rental industry,” said Gary Berman, President and CEO of Tricon. “A U.S. listing is an important next step to align our middle market, Sun Belt focused investment strategy with the deep U.S. public capital markets and to attract more investors to our business as we usher in a new period of growth.”
“As exciting as our future is, we would not have reached this point without the hard work and dedication of our employees who go above and beyond every day to serve our residents. We would also like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to our Board of Directors and the many longstanding shareholders, private investors and capital market partners for their ongoing support throughout our journey. To our new shareholders, we welcome you to Tricon and look forward to rewarding your confidence in us with a people-first, sustainable approach to business that strives to deliver on our commitments in the years to come.”
Morgan Stanley, RBC Capital Markets, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, Scotiabank and Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, a Stifel company, acted as joint book-running managers in the Offering. Morgan Stanley and RBC Capital Markets also acted as representatives of the underwriters in the Offering.
In connection with the Offering, BREIT exercised its participation right, pursuant to the investor rights agreement with the Company dated September 3, 2020, to acquire 4,848,746 Common Shares in the Private Placement. Following the completion of the Offering and the Private Placement, BREIT’s effective ownership interest in the Company is approximately 11.66% (assuming the exchange of its preferred units of Tricon PIPE LLC for Common Shares).
Tricon expects that the net proceeds of the Offering and the Private Placement will be used to repay the total amount outstanding under its 2017-1 pass-through certificates in respect of the Company’s single-family rental securitization debt maturing in 2022, in addition to funding future property acquisitions and for general corporate purposes.
