CALGARY, Alberta, July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tidewater Midstream and Infrastructure Ltd. ("Tidewater" or the "Company") (TSX: TWM) is pleased to announce that it will be upsizing its previously announced bought deal public offering (the "Public Offering") of units ("Units"). Under the Public Offering, a syndicate of underwriters (the "Underwriters"), led by CIBC Capital Markets, National Bank Financial, RBC Capital Markets and ATB Capital Markets, have agreed to buy on a bought deal basis 42,080,000 Units of the Company, at a price of $1.20 per Unit for gross proceeds of $50.5 million. The terms of the previously announced private placement (the "Private Placement") remain unchanged. In total, the Company will issue $85 million of Units at a price of $1.20 per Unit (the "Issue Price") under the Public Offering and Private Placement (collectively the "Offering").
Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company (each a "Common Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each full warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share from the Company at a price of $1.44 per Common Share for a period of 24 months following the closing of the Offering.
The Company has granted the Underwriters an option (the "Over-Allotment Option"), exercisable for a period of 30 days following the closing of the Public Offering, to purchase an additional 15% of the Public Offering to cover over-allotments, if any. This Over-Allotment Option may be exercised by the Underwriters for additional Units, Common Shares, Warrants or any combination of such securities (the "Securities"). Should the Over-Allotment Option be exercised, the subscribers under the Private Placement will have the option to purchase on a pro-rata basis additional Securities that are purchased by the Underwriters pursuant to the Over-Allotment Option.
Proceeds from the Offering and other borrowing facilities, will be used to repay Tidewater's existing senior unsecured notes due December 19, 2022 and second lien term loan due October 31, 2022.
The Offering is expected to close on or about August 16, 2022 and closing of each of the Public Offering and Private Placement will be subject to, among other things, customary conditions, the concurrent closing of the other and the Company entering into the expanded senior credit facility. The Offering is subject to the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX").

The securities have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements thereunder.
