TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tricon Residential Inc. (NYSE: TCN, TSX: TCN) (“Tricon” or the “Company”), an owner and operator of single-family rental homes in the U.S. Sun Belt and multi-family rental apartments in Canada, announced today that it has priced its 2023-SFR1 securitization transaction.
The transaction, involving the issuance and sale of 5 offered classes of fixed-rate certificates with a total face amount of $416.4 million, was priced at a weighted average yield of approximately 5.86% with a term to maturity of approximately 5 years. The transaction reflected strong demand, with subscriptions of 3.5x the offered amount and participation from 26 investors, including four new to Tricon. The transaction proceeds represent 57% of the value of the securitized portfolio which includes 2,116 single-family rental properties within the SFR JV-2 investment vehicle (“SFR JV-2”). The transaction is expected to close on or about July 11, 2023.
The 5.86% weighted average yield represents an attractive cost of financing that is in line with Tricon’s acquisition cap rates for single-family rental homes in the current market environment. The proceeds of the transaction will be used to repay floating rate debt that was temporarily used to fund acquisitions within SFR JV-2, thereby reducing the Company’s floating rate debt exposure by approximately 500 basis points to 21% of total debt from 26% in Q1/231.
The offering of certificates is being made through Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC as sole structuring agent, joint bookrunner, and co-lead manager, BofA Securities, Inc. as joint bookrunner and co-lead manager, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. as joint bookrunner and co-lead manager, Mizuho Securities USA LLC as joint bookrunner and co-lead manager and RBC Capital Markets, LLC as joint bookrunner and co-lead manager. The various classes of offered certificates have been rated on a preliminary basis by Moody’s Investors Service and Kroll Bond Rating Agency.
