FBS.PR.B Issue Size Increased

5Banc Split Inc. has announced (via CCN Matthews) that:

it has completed the issuance of an additional 100,000 Class B Capital Shares (the “Capital Shares”) and 100,000 Class B Preferred Shares (the “Preferred Shares”) at prices of $10.00 per Capital Share and $10.00 per Preferred Share pursuant to the exercise of the over-allotment option granted to the Company’s agents in its recently completed offering of Capital Shares and Preferred Shares. All together, the Company has raised total gross proceeds of $282 million under the offering.

The FBS.PR.B new issue closed on December 15. This is good news. Always nice to see these things get a little more liquid.

Many are obviously betting that it will last until the hardMaturity 2011-12-15 … that will be a first, if it happens to a large extent. […]
