Unison Acquisition Trust Announces Private Placement of Trust Units

·3 min read

TORONTO, Oct. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Starlight Investments Capital LP (“Starlight Capital” or the “Manager”) is pleased to announce that Unison Acquisition Trust (the “Trust”) intends to complete a private placement offering of up to 5,000,000 Series A units (“Series A Units”), Series C units (“Series C Units”) and Series F units (“Series F Units”, and together with Series A Units and Series C Units, “Units”) at an initial offering price of $10.00 per Unit.

The Trust’s investment objective is to provide Unitholders with stable cash distributions and long-term capital appreciation through exposure to single family homes in the United States and REITs and equity securities of issuers participating in the residential real estate sector in North America. The Trust will primarily provide exposure to Unison Midgard Fund LP (“Unison Midgard”), and to a lesser extent, up to 20% of the Trust’s total assets will be invested in the “Public Portfolio”. The Public Portfolio will invest in an actively managed North American portfolio of real estate securities managed by Dennis Mitchell, CEO & CIO of Starlight Investments Capital LP.

The Trust has engaged Raymond James Ltd. and National Bank Financial Inc. (the “Lead Agents”) as co-lead agents and joint bookrunners to offer for sale on a private placement basis up to a maximum of $50,000,000 of Series A Units and/or Series F Units at a price of $10.00 per Unit (the “Syndicated Offering”). Purchasers are required to purchase a minimum of 100 Series A Units, a minimum of 100,000 Series C Units or a minimum of 100 Series F Units, in the discretion of the Manager. No Series C Units will be sold through the Syndicated Offering.

There will be no closing unless a minimum of $20,000,000 of Units (the “Minimum Offering”) are sold pursuant to this offering. Assuming the Minimum Offering is achieved, it is expected that the initial closing date will be on or about October 28, 2021, with a subsequent closing on or about November 25, 2021, or such other dates as the Manager and the Lead Agents may determine.

This offering is made only by means of an offering memorandum of the Trust, which can be obtained from the Lead Agents at no cost by emailing ECM-Syndication@raymondjames.ca or Heather.McLennan@nbc.ca.
