Emera has announced:
that it has completed its public offering of six million Cumulative 5-Year Rate Reset First Preferred Shares, Series A for aggregate gross proceeds of $150 million. The offering was first announced on May 25, 2010 when Emera entered into an agreement with a syndicate of underwriters in Canada led by Scotia Capital Inc., RBC Capital Markets and CIBC World Markets Inc.
The net proceeds of the offering will be used for general corporate purposes.
The aggregate gross proceeds of $150-million implies that the $50-million greenshoe was not exercised, while the low volume implies the underwriters had trouble flogging the issue.
