MONTREAL, Feb. 18, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - Dollarama Inc. (TSX: DOL) ("Dollarama" or the "Corporation") announced today that it has established a commercial paper program in the United States (the "US Commercial Paper Program") on a private placement basis.
Under the terms of the US Commercial Paper Program, the Corporation may issue, from time to time, unsecured commercial paper notes with maturities not in excess of 397 days from the date of issue (the "Notes"). The aggregate principal amount of Notes outstanding at any one time under the US Commercial Paper Program will not exceed US$500 million. The Corporation intends to use the proceeds from the issuance of Notes for general corporate purposes.
The Notes will be direct unsecured obligations of the Corporation and will rank equally with all of its other unsecured and unsubordinated indebtedness. The Notes will be unconditionally guaranteed by Dollarama L.P. and Dollarama GP Inc., each a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Corporation. The Corporation's revolving credit facility, upsized on February 14, 2020 from C$500 million to C$800 million, will serve as a liquidity backstop for the repayment of the Notes issued under the US Commercial Paper Program.
The Notes have not been and will not be qualified for sale to the public under applicable securities laws in Canada and may not be offered or sold to any resident of Canada.
The Notes to be offered under the US Commercial Paper Program have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or under any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes in the United States or any jurisdiction where it is unlawful to do so.
