TORONTO, Nov. 6, 2020 /CNW/ - First National Financial Corporation (TSX: FN) (TSX: FN.PR.A) (TSX: FN.PR.B) ("First National") today announced its intention to issue $200,000,000 of new senior unsecured notes.

Priced at par, the notes will be issued pursuant to a private placement under an offering memorandum for a five-year term maturing on November 17, 2025.

The offering is expected to close on November 16, 2020. The senior unsecured notes were offered through a syndicate of dealers co-led by RBC Capital Markets and TD Securities, supported by BMO Nesbitt Burns, CIBC World Markets, National Bank Financial, Scotia Capital and Laurentian Bank Securities.

"With 42 investors and a credit spread of 2.55% over the benchmark bond, this is a testament to the market's confidence in First National," said Robert Inglis, Chief Financial Officer. "We are very pleased with market reception in these relatively turbulent times."
