09.06.2023 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

September 6, 2023 [Enbridge]- Enbridge Inc. (TSX: ENB) (NYSE: ENB) (“Enbridge” or the “Company”) today announced that it has entered into an agreement with a syndicate of underwriters led by RBC Capital Markets and Morgan Stanley, and including BMO Capital Markets, CIBC Capital Markets, National Bank Financial Markets, Scotiabank, and TD Securities (the “Underwriters”) under which the Underwriters have agreed to purchase, on a bought deal basis, 89,490,000 common shares of the Company (“Common Shares”) for aggregate gross proceeds of CDN$4 billion at an offering price of CDN$44.70 per Common Share (the “Offering”).

 

Enbridge intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to finance a portion of the cash consideration payable by it for the purchase of local distribution company gas utilities in the United States from Dominion Energy, Inc., the details of which were announced today in a separate news release issued by Enbridge (the “Acquisitions”).

The Common Shares will be offered to the public in all of the provinces of Canada through the Underwriters and their affiliates by way of a Canadian prospectus supplement (the “Canadian Prospectus Supplement”) to Enbridge’s short form base shelf prospectus dated September 5, 2023 (the “Canadian Prospectus”). The Common Shares will be offered to the public in the United States pursuant to Enbridge’s registration statement, including a prospectus (the “U.S. Prospectus”), filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), and a prospectus supplement (the “U.S. Prospectus Supplement”) to the U.S. Prospectus. Before investing, prospective purchasers in Canada should read the Canadian Prospectus Supplement, the Canadian Prospectus and the documents incorporated by reference therein, and prospective purchasers in the United States should read the U.S. Prospectus, the U.S. Prospectus Supplement and the documents incorporated by reference therein for more complete information about Enbridge and the Offering in Canada and the United States, respectively. Common Shares may also be offered on a private placement basis in other international jurisdictions in reliance on applicable private placement exemptions.

The Offering is expected to close on or about September 8, 2023. Pursuant to the agreement, the Underwriters have an option to purchase up to 15% in additional Common Shares by providing notice to Enbridge at any time until the date that is 30 days after the closing of the Offering, to cover over-allotments, if any. If the over-allotment option is exercised in full, the aggregate gross proceeds from the Offering will be approximately CDN$4.6 billion.

The closing of the Offering is not conditional upon the completion of the Acquisitions. In the event that any or all of the Acquisitions are not completed, Enbridge may use the net proceeds from the Offering to reduce its outstanding indebtedness, finance future growth opportunities including acquisitions, finance its capital expenditures, or for other general corporate purposes.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor will there be any sale of these securities, in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
