TORONTO, Oct. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Partners Value Investments LP (the “Partnership”, TSXV: PVF.UN TSXV: PVF.PR.U) announced today it is undertaking a substantial issuer bid (the "Offer'') to purchase up to 5,000,000 of its Class A Preferred Limited Partnership Units, Series 1 (the “Preferred Units”) at a price per Preferred Unit of US$25.0894 (the “Purchase Price”).

The Offer will expire at 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on November 30, 2020 (the “Expiration Date”) unless the Offer is extended, varied or withdrawn by the Partnership.

The Offer by the Partnership represents an effective use of the financial resources of the Partnership and its subsidiaries. The Purchase Price in the Offer is the same amount per Preferred Unit that would be received by the holders of Preferred Units (“Unitholders”), if instead the Partnership had exercised its right to redeem the Preferred Units pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Partnership’s limited partnership agreement with the redemption date being the Expiration Date. Proceeding by way of a substantial issuer bid, provides Unitholders with the flexibility to determine if and how many Preferred Units they wish to tender, which Unitholders would not have had if the Partnership had exercised its right to redeem the Preferred Units instead.

Unitholders will receive the Purchase Price, payable in cash, for Preferred Units tendered, subject to any applicable withholding taxes. If the aggregate number of Preferred Units properly deposited exceeds 5,000,000, such units will be purchased on a pro rata basis, subject to the terms of the Offer. The Offer will be offered to all Unitholders. The formal offer documents being mailed to Unitholders will contain the full terms and conditions of the Offer and instructions for tendering Preferred Units.
