TORONTO, July 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Capstone Infrastructure Corporation (“Capstone” or the “Corporation”) (TSX:CSE.PR.A) announced today that none of its Cumulative 5-Year Rate Reset Preferred Shares, Series A (the “Series A shares”) will be converted into Cumulative Floating Rate Preferred Shares, Series B (the “Series B shares”).
