FTU.PR.A Exchanged for FTU.PR.B, FTU.WT.A & FTU.WT.B

US Financial 15 Split Corp. has announced:

the completion of the capital reorganization of the Preferred Shares of the Company (the “Reorganization”) that was approved at the special meeting of shareholders held on April 16, 2012, and the related consolidation of Class A Shares (the “Consolidation”).

As a result of the Reorganization, holders of Preferred Shares who did not exercise the 2012 Special Retraction Right, will receive the following securities for each Preferred Share:
1. one 2012 Preferred Share (Symbol: FTU.PR.B),
2. one 2013 Warrant (Symbol: FTU.WT.A); and
3. one 2014 Warrant (Symbol: FTU.WT.B).
The 2012 Preferred Share, 2013 Warrants and 2014 Warrants will be listed on the TSX and posted for trading at market open on June 25, 2012.

The exercise prices for the 2013 Warrants and the 2014 Warrants are $5.15 and $5.40, respectively.

As previously announced, the Consolidation is necessary to maintain an equal number of Class A shares and 2012 Preferred Shares outstanding following the Reorganization. After the Reorganization and the Consolidation, there will be 2,207,399 2012 Preferred Shares and 2,207,399 Class A Shares outstanding with a net asset value per unit of $4.99 as of the opening of business on June 25, 2012. The increase in net asset value of the Company from its value as of the close of business on
June 22, 2012 is attributable to the amount of the cumulative dividend arrears for Preferred Shares that are retained by the Company and added back to the net asset value of the Company as part of the Reorganization.

Additional information regarding the capital reorganization is contained in the Management Information Circular dated March 9, 2012 prepared in respect of the special meeting, available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com or on the Company’s website www.financial15.com.

FTU.PR.A was last mentioned on PrefBlog when the capital units were consolidated.

As discussed in the post FTU.PR.A Reorganization Details, FTU.PR.B will pay a dividend of 5.25% of the lesser of NAV and $10. FTU.PR.A used to be tracked by HIMIPref™, but no more, since the preferred share dividends will now be calculated as a percentage of NAV, rather than as a percentage of par. FTU.PR.B will not be tracked by HIMIPref™.
