Clubbing & Placement

We play well with others.
We’re usually able to provide all of the capital a business needs; but sometimes, a transaction is too large for us to finance on our own. When that happens, our Clubbing & Placement group swoops in with the expertise, institutional contacts, and proven track record to raise additional debt capital.

Whether for growth, acquisitions, recapitalisations, or buyouts, we can provide a large anchor commitment and structure the entire financing need with institutional partners. In addition, various forms of capital can be provided, such as investment grade, below investment grade, secured, unsecured, fixed, or floating.

PARTNER STORY
Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC
Natural gas transporter utilises a club issuance to fund growth and small shareholder dividend
Calgary, Alberta-based Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC is a Canadian transporter of natural gas on behalf of local distribution companies through its approximately 250-mile pipeline network in New Jersey and southern New England.

We first began working with Algonquin in 1992, and we’ve been in close contact ever since. In spring of 2019, they informed us of an interest in borrowing capital for growth and a small shareholder dividend. The problem? Their existing investors couldn’t provide all of the capital they needed. The solution? A Pricoa Private Capital-led club issuance.

Algonquin considered going through an agented process, or arranging a self-clubbed transaction. But thanks to the trust and close relationship built between us, along with the ease and certainty of execution when working with us, they ultimately determined that we should take the lead on club issuance.

We provided them with the largest anchor investment of $150 million out of the $500 million club issuance. Our Clubbing & Placement group structured and documented the transaction and introduced Algonquin to an additional investor who mirrored our mutual relationship-focused values.

Thanks to teamwork, we were able to help Algonquin source and raise the capital needed to meet their goals and objectives.
