Keyera Announces CDN$200 Million Note Issue under Private Shelf Agreement
CALGARY, Sept. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Keyera Corp. (TSX:KEY) (TSX: KEY.DB.A)
("Keyera") announced today that it has agreed to issue CDN$200 million of
long-term notes pursuant to an uncommitted private shelf agreement with the
Prudential Capital Group ("Prudential"). Proceeds from the notes will be
used to pay down existing credit facilities and other general corporate
purposes, including Keyera's ongoing capital expenditure program.
In connection with this debt placement, Keyera and Prudential will be amending
their current uncommitted private shelf agreement, including amendments
providing for the issuance of up to US$350 million of notes (subject to
certain conditions), up from the previous limit of US$200 million.
Keyera expects to close the notes placement on October 10, 2013, subject to
satisfaction of closing conditions. When issued, CDN$100 million of the
notes will have a coupon rate of 4.92%, maturing on October 10, 2025, and
CDN$100 million of the notes will have a coupon rate of 5.09%, maturing on
October 10, 2028. Interest will be paid semi-annually in arrears. Upon
closing of this placement, there will be approximately US$67 million of
capacity remaining under the amended shelf facility, taking into account
existing long-term senior unsecured notes previously issued to Prudential
which are deducted from the available capacity.
