Calgary, Alberta CANADA, October 02, 2012 /FSC/ - Mosaic Capital Corporation (M - TSX Venture, M.PR.A - TSX Venture), announced today that it has obtained a receipt for a preliminary short form prospectus (the "Preliminary Prospectus") which was filed with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces in Canada, except Quebec, in connection with a proposed marketed offering (the "Offering") of preferred securities of Mosaic (the "Preferred Securities"). Each Preferred Security carries an entitlement to a monthly distribution in the amount of $0.0833 ($1.00 per annum) which is payable monthly in arrears on or about the 15th day of the succeeding month. It is currently anticipated that the gross proceeds from the Offering will be approximately $20 million.
Offering will be conducted through a syndicate of agents led by Raymond James Ltd. and including Mackie Research Capital Corporation, Macquarie Capital Markets Canada Ltd., Canaccord Genuity Corp. and Global Securities Corporation (the "Agents"). Mosaic has granted the Agents an over-allotment option to offer for sale up to such number of additional Preferred Securities as have a principal amount equal to 15% of the principal amount of Preferred Securities sold under the Offering, and such additional Preferred Securities shall be issued on the same terms and at the same price as those otherwise sold under the Offering. The over-allotment option shall be exercisable in whole or in part by the Agents for a period of up to 30 days following the closing of the Offering. The Preferred Securities issued under the Offering will be priced in the context of the market with the pricing to be determined by negotiation between Mosaic and the Agents.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for future acquisition opportunities that may arise from time to time and for general corporate purposes.
A copy of the Preliminary Prospectus may be obtained on SEDAR at www.sedar.com or by contacting the Agents.
The Offering is subject to regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and applicable securities regulatory authorities.
