Crown Capital Partners Announces $15.0 Million Term Loan with Solo Liquor

CALGARY, February 27, 2017 – Crown Capital Partners Inc. (“Crown” or “the Corporation”) (TSX: CRN), which provides growth capital to successful mid-market companies, today announced the closing of a $15.0 million special situations term loan (the “Agreement”) with Solo Liquor Holdings Ltd. (“Solo”), the second largest liquor retailer in Alberta and largest private liquor retailer in the province.

Headquartered in Calgary, Solo currently operates 41 retail liquor stores in high-traffic locations in Alberta, including 19 stores in Calgary, 13 in Edmonton and the remaining 9 in other communities across Alberta. Founded in 1996, the company is 100% owned by senior management. Solo will use Crown’s capital to expand its store network over the next several years.

“Solo has built an attractive long-term growth profile using a simple strategy: open stores in high-traffic residential areas, offer a wide range of products, operate with extended hours and maintain everyday low prices,” said Chris Johnson, Crown’s President & CEO. “Solo has a low-cost, scalable and repeatable model, and we believe they can generate significant value in the coming years through a low-risk store expansion plan. We are pleased to partner with them as they embark on this next phase of growth.”

“We were attracted to Crown because they offered a non-dilutive financing alternative and have a history supporting growth businesses like ours,” said Pali Bedi, Solo’s CEO. “We look forward to working with them as we build out our network.”

The Agreement provides for a $15 million term loan to Solo by Crown Capital Fund IV, LP, an investment fund managed by Crown and in which Crown holds a 35% interest. The term loan bears a fixed interest rate of 12% per annum, matures in 36 months, and includes a bonus feature based on the growth in Solo’s enterprise value.

ATB M&A Advisory Services acted as exclusive financial advisor to Solo.

Crown Capital Partners Announces $15.0 Million Term Loan with Solo Liquor2020-05-12T18:05:29+00:00

Crown Capital Partners Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

CALGARY, April 6, 2016 – Crown Capital Partners Inc. (“Crown” or the “Corporation”) (TSX: CRN), which provides growth capital to successful mid-market companies, today announced that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) has approved its Notice of Intention to make a normal course issuer bid (“NCIB”). Crown will have the right under the NCIB to purchase up to 620,000 of its common shares (the “Shares”) representing approximately 10.0% of the public float of Shares and approximately 6.5% of the 9,494,002 issued and outstanding Shares.

Crown is commencing the NCIB because, in the opinion of the Corporation’s board of directors and senior management, the Shares may occasionally trade in a price range which does not adequately reflect the value of the underlying business and financial position.

“We continue to deliver on the plan articulated during our initial public offering, and the current market conditions for our debt solutions are among the most favorable we have witnessed in our 15-year history, resulting in a strong and growing transaction pipeline,” said Chris Johnson, President and CEO of Crown. “In our view, the current trading price, which represents approximately 0.8 times book value per share, undervalues the business given the quality of our assets and growth prospects. As a result, we will be using a portion of our free cash flow to buy back Shares while continuing to deliver on our growth plan, putting capital to work to generate growing earnings and cash flow for shareholders.”

Purchases made pursuant to the NCIB will be made in the open market through the facilities of the TSX and alternative trading systems, if eligible. The NCIB will commence on April 8, 2016 and remain in effect until the earlier of April 7, 2017, the termination of the NCIB by Crown and Crown purchasing the maximum number of Shares permitted under the NCIB. Shares purchased by the Corporation pursuant to the NCIB will be cancelled. The number of Shares that can be purchased pursuant to the NCIB is subject to a daily maximum of 3,639 Shares which is 25% of 14,556 (being the average daily trading volume for the Shares on the TSX for the six months ended March 31, 2016).
