ISC Files Preliminary Base Shelf Prospectus and Amended Business Acquisition Report
REGINA, Saskatchewan, April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Information Services Corporation (TSX:ISV) (“ISC” or the “Company”) has today filed a preliminary short form base shelf prospectus (the “shelf prospectus”) with the securities regulatory authorities in each province and territory of Canada, other than Québec. This filing, when made final, will allow the Company to make offerings of common shares, preferred shares, debt securities, subscription receipts, units, warrants, or any combination thereof of up to CAD$200 million during the next 25 months.
The Company has filed the shelf prospectus in order to provide flexibility going forward. The net proceeds from any offerings under the shelf prospectus will be used as specified in the corresponding prospectus supplement, which could include for general corporate purposes, to repay indebtedness or to fund capital expenditures.
The terms of such future offerings, if any, will be established at the time of such offerings. At the time any of the securities covered by the shelf prospectus are offered for sale, a prospectus supplement containing specific information about the terms of any such offering will be filed with applicable Canadian securities regulatory authorities.
In connection with the filing of the shelf prospectus, the Company also filed an amended and restated business acquisition report (the “BAR”) related to the acquisition of Paragon, Inc. (“Paragon”), which was completed on July 31, 2020. The BAR was refiled to amend the original filing and remove the disclaimer stating that “Paragon’s independent auditor has not performed a review” of the unaudited interim combined financial statements for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019. For more information, please refer to the amended and restated BAR which was filed on SEDAR on April 29, 2021.
