CF.PR.A: No Conversion To FloatingReset

Canaccord Genuity Group Inc. has announced:

that after having taken into account all election notices received by the September 15, 2016 conversion deadline in respect of the Cumulative 5-Year Rate Reset First Preferred Shares, Series A (the “Series A Preferred Shares”) tendered for conversion into Cumulative Floating Rate First Preferred Shares, Series B (the “Series B Preferred Shares”), the holders of the Series A Preferred Shares are not entitled to convert their shares. There were 761,594 Series A Preferred Shares tendered for conversion, which is less than the 1,000,000 shares required for the ability to proceed with the conversion into Series B Preferred Shares, in accordance with the terms of the Series A Preferred Shares.

There are currently 4,540,000 Series A Preferred Shares listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol CF.PR.A.

I previously reported that CF.PR.A will reset at 3.885% for the next five years before resetting again at GOC-5 + 321bp. The FloatingReset shares, which will not be issued at the present time, would have paid three-month bills +321bp, reset quarterly. The notice of extension was also reported.

    Hello James,

    Nice to read your very informative comments on pref resets. Too many resets and perpetuals are hovering above redemption price and making trading preferred tricky.

    Your comments are very helpful to me.

    Stay healthy! 🙂
