Priced at par, the notes were issued pursuant to a private placement under an offering memorandum for a five-year term maturing on November 25, 2024. The notes bear interest at 3.582% payable in equal semi-annual payments commencing May 25, 2020. The net proceeds will be invested in First National Financial LP ("LP"), which in turn will repay a portion of the outstanding amount drawn on its bank credit facility. The senior unsecured notes were offered through a syndicate of dealers co-led by RBC Capital Markets and TD Securities.

On April 9, 2020, the LP plans to draw on the bank credit facility to repay the Company's maturing 4.01% $175,000,000 unsecured notes. 

"With 38 investors and a credit spread of 2.1% over the benchmark bond, this is First National's most successful debt offering to date," said Robert Inglis, Chief Financial Officer.  "We are very pleased with market reception as it speaks to the confidence in the Company's business model."
