Horizon North Logistics Inc. (“Horizon North” or the “Corporation”) (TSX: HNL.TO) announced today the closing of its previously announced bought-deal financing through a syndicate of underwriters led by National Bank Financial Inc. and including Scotia Capital Inc., Peters & Co. Limited, TD Securities Inc., Cormark Securities Inc., GMP Securities L.P., Beacon Securities Limited, Clarus Securities Inc., Raymond James Ltd., Canaccord Genuity Corp., Acumen Capital Finance Partners Limited and AltaCorp Capital Inc. (the “Offering”). Pursuant to the Offering, the Corporation issued 17,857,200 common shares (“Common Shares”) at a price of $2.80 per Common Share for gross proceeds of approximately $50 million.
The net proceeds received by Horizon North from the Offering will be used to initially reduce the Corporation’s committed credit facility balances, which will then be available to take advantage of opportunities associated with new Liquefied Natural Gas (“LNG”) projects in western Canada, and to expand the Corporation’s Modular Solutions business across Canada. Horizon North specifically intends to allocate the net proceeds of the Offering as follows: (i) approximately 50 per cent of the net proceeds are to be directed towards the transportation, installation and commissioning of up to 1,000 camp beds on Horizon North’s existing, fully serviced land position in Kitimat, British Columbia following a potential positive final investment decision by LNG project proponents; and (ii) approximately 50 per cent of the net proceeds are to be directed towards the expansion of Horizon North’s Modular Solutions capabilities, including within existing geographies in western Canada and potentially new geographies in eastern Canada.
Please see the “Use of Proceeds” in the Short Form Prospectus of the Corporation dated June 18, 2018 for further details on the use of net proceeds from the Offering, a copy of which is available under the Corporation’s profile on www.sedar.com.
