The debentures are convertible, at the option of the holder, into trust units of Chemtrade at a conversion price of $15.80 per unit. The debentures were sold to a syndicate of underwriters led by BMO Capital Markets on a bought deal basis. In addition, Chemtrade has granted the underwriters an overallotment option to purchase up to an additional $15-million aggregate principal amount of debentures at the same price, which can be exercised in whole or in part at any time for a period of 30 days following the closing of the offering.
Chemtrade will use the net proceeds of the offering to pay down senior debt under the fund's existing credit agreement with the intention of drawing on it to redeem all of the outstanding Chemtrade Electrochem 6.50-per-cent convertible unsecured Series VI debentures due Dec. 31, 2021, and for general trust purposes.
