MAPF Performance : March, 2021

April 11th, 2021

Malachite Aggressive Preferred Fund’s Net Asset Value per Unit as of the close March 31, 2021, was $9.6473, after giving effect to a distribution of $0.095825.

This result is a 3.04% increase over the month (including dividend), vs. +1.83% for TXPR. Quarterly, the fund returned +16.06% vs. TXPR +8.84%. The fun figure is the trailing year’s result: the fund returned an astonishing +83.35% vs. +49.65% for TXPR. Don’t expect that every year! It is amusing to note the quarterly consistence of the fund’s return: it has returned between 16% and 17% for each of the past four quarters!

I have been ill and – given the time of year – many things have been delayed. I am endeavoring to catch up and will continue this post at a later date.

April PrefLetter To Be Delayed Or Cancelled

April 11th, 2021

I regret to advise that publication of this month’s edition of PrefLetter has had to be delayed and will possibly be cancelled.

I have been ill and while I am recuperating, I have to admit that I’m not working very quickly! After consideration this weekend, I decided that I simply was not capable of giving PrefLetter the attention and vigour it requires.

Clients who have purchased the ‘Next Issue’ continue to be on the appropriate delivery list. Clients who have X issues remaining on their year’s subscription will continue to have X issues remaining until the next edition is distributed.

I’m very sorry for this. If any clients would prefer to receive a full or partial refund in lieu of the scheduled delivery, please eMail me and it will be arranged.

New Issue: EMA FixedReset, 4.25%+328M425

March 24th, 2021

Emera Incorporated has announced (although not yet on their website):

that it will issue 8,000,000 Cumulative Minimum Rate Reset First Preferred Shares, Series J (the “Series J Preferred Shares”) at a price of $25.00 per share and at an initial annual dividend rate of 4.25 per cent, for aggregate gross proceeds of $200 million on a bought deal basis to a syndicate of underwriters in Canada led by Scotiabank and RBC Capital Markets. Emera has granted to the underwriters an option, exercisable at any time up to two business days prior to the closing of the offering, to purchase up to an additional 2,000,000 Series J Preferred Shares at a price of $25.00 per share (the “Underwriters’ Option”). If the Underwriters’ Option is exercised in full, the aggregate gross proceeds to Emera will be $250 million.

The holders of the Series J Preferred Shares will be entitled to receive fixed cumulative preferential cash dividends at an annual rate of $1.0625 per share, payable quarterly, as and when declared by the board of directors of Emera, yielding 4.25 per cent per annum, for the initial period ending on May 15, 2026. The first of such dividends, if declared, shall be payable on August 15, 2021, and shall be $0.38134 per Series J Preferred Share, based on the anticipated closing of the offering on April 6, 2021. The dividend rate will be reset on May 15, 2026 and every five years thereafter at a rate equal to the sum of the then five-year Government of Canada bond yield plus 3.28 per cent, provided that, in any event, such rate shall not be less than 4.25 per cent per annum. The Series J Preferred Shares are redeemable by Emera, at its option, on May 15, 2026 and on May 15 of every fifth year thereafter.

The holders of Series J Preferred Shares will have the right to convert their shares into Cumulative Floating Rate First Preferred Shares, Series K (the “Series K Preferred Shares”), subject to certain conditions, on May 15, 2026 and on May 15 of every fifth year thereafter. The holders of the Series K Preferred Shares will be entitled to receive quarterly floating rate cumulative preferential cash dividends, as and when declared by the board of directors of Emera, at a rate equal to the sum of the 90-day Government of Canada treasury bill rate at such time plus 3.28 per cent.

The offering is subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory and stock exchange approvals. The net proceeds of the offering will be used for general corporate purposes.

The Series J Preferred Shares will be offered to the public in Canada by way of prospectus supplement to Emera’s short form base shelf prospectus dated March 12, 2021.

This is the first new FixedReset since CM FixedReset, 5.15%+362, NVCC from May 2019, so that’s pretty exciting!

Standard & Poor’s rates it P-3(high):

S&P Global Ratings today assigned its ‘BB+’ on the global scale and ‘P-3 (High)’ on the Canada National Preferred Share Scale issue-level ratings to Halifax, N.S.-based utility holding company Emera Inc.’s (Emera) C$200 million series J cumulative minimum rate reset first preferred shares, with an option of up to C$250 million. Emera intends to use the net proceeds from these preferred shares for general corporate purposes.

We expect to assign intermediate equity credit (50% equity) to the shares based on the proposed terms. Our intermediate equity treatment is largely premised on the instrument’s permanence, subordination, and deferability features, as defined under our criteria for hybrid securities.

The series J first preferred stock is perpetual, with no maturity date and no incentive to redeem the issue for a long-dated period, meeting our standards for permanence. In addition, the dividend payments are deferrable, fulfilling the deferability element in our criteria. Furthermore, the instrument is subordinated to all existing and future senior debt obligations, satisfying our condition for subordination.

For these reasons and based on our review of the proposed terms of these instruments, we rate the securities two notches below our ‘BBB’ issuer credit rating on Emera at ‘BB+’ on the global scale or ‘P-3 (High)’ under the Canada National Preferred Share Scale Ratings. For our most recent issuer credit rating rationale, see the research update on Emera published on March 24, 2020.

Thanks to Assiduous Reader JD for bringing this to my attention!

RCG.PR.B / RCG.PR.C : Forced Conversion To FixedReset

March 20th, 2021

RF Capital Group Inc. has announced:

that after having taken into account all election notices received by the March 16, 2021 conversion deadline in respect of the Cumulative 5-Year Rate Reset Preferred Shares, Series B (the Series B Shares) and Cumulative Floating Rate Preferred Shares, Series C (the Series C Shares), if the Company were to give effect to such notices there would be only 905,752 Series C Shares outstanding after the conversation date of March 31, 2021 (the Conversion Date).

The terms of the Series B Shares provide that if, after giving effect to all election notices at the close of business on March 16, 2021, there would be outstanding less than 1 million Series C Shares after the Conversion Date, then no holders of Series B Shares are permitted to convert their Series B Shares into Series C Shares. Accordingly, the holders of the Series B Shares are not entitled to convert their shares.

The terms of the Series C Shares provide that if, after giving effect to all election notices at the close of business on March 16, 2021, there would remain outstanding less than 1 million Series C Shares after the Conversion Date, then all remaining outstanding Series C Shares will automatically convert into Series B Shares, on a one-for-one basis, on the Conversion Date. Accordingly, on March 31, 2021, all Series C Shares will automatically convert to Series B Shares on the basis of one Series B Share for each Series C Share.

Effective as of the Conversion Date there will be 4.6 million Series B Shares listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol RCG.PR.B.
