TORONTO, March 31, 2021 /CNW/ – Tricon Residential Inc. (“Tricon” or the “Company”) (TSX: TCN), a rental housing company catering to the middle-market demographic throughout the United States and Canada, announced today the closing of its previously announced joint venture arrangement (the “Joint Venture” or “JV”) with two leading global institutional investors (the “Investors”) to invest in Tricon’s wholly-owned portfolio of 23 U.S. multi-family apartments. Under the Joint Venture, the Investors acquired a combined 80% interest in the existing portfolio, with Tricon retaining a 20% interest. The transaction reflects a total portfolio value of $1.331 billion including in-place debt, which is in line with the portfolio’s fair value reflected on Tricon’s balance sheet as of December 31, 2020.
Tricon intends to use the approximately $425 million of gross proceeds from the sale of its 80% equity interest primarily to repay outstanding debt and for general corporate purposes. As a result, Tricon expects to reduce its leverage by over 500 basis points to approximately 50% net debt/assets (excluding convertible debentures), significantly enhancing its balance sheet flexibility.
