SCOTIABANK ANNOUNCES NVCC SUBORDINATED DEBENTURES OFFERING
Bank of Nova Scotia has arranged an offering of $1.75-billion of 3.89 per cent subordinated debentures (non-viability contingent capital (NVCC)) due 2029 pursuant to its July 25, 2018, base-shelf prospectus.
The debentures, to be sold through an agency syndicate led by Scotiabank Global Banking & Markets, are expected to be issued on Jan. 18, 2019. Interest will be payable semi-annually from the date of issue until Jan. 18, 2024, at 3.89 per cent per annum. From Jan. 18, 2024, to maturity on Jan. 18, 2029, the debentures will pay a quarterly coupon at a rate of the 90-day bankers acceptance plus 1.58 per cent, beginning April 18, 2024.
On or after Jan. 18, 2024, Scotiabank may, at its option, with the prior approval of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (Canada), redeem the debentures, in whole at any time or in part from time to time on not fewer than 30 nor more than 60 days prior notice, at a redemption price of par plus accrued and unpaid interest.
Net proceeds from this transaction will be used for general banking purposes.
Scotiabank intends to file, in Canada, a prospectus supplement to its July 25, 2018, base-shelf prospectus. A copy of this document, as well as the base-shelf prospectus, can be obtained at SEDAR.
