Vancouver, British Columbia — (Newsfile Corp. – March 13, 2023) — ReGen III Corp. (TSXV: GIII) (OTCQX: ISRJF) (FSE: PN4) (“ReGen III” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the engagement of Raymond James & Associates Inc. (“Raymond James”), a subsidiary of Raymond James Financial, Inc. (NYSE: RJF).
Raymond James will act as an initial purchaser or placement agent to ReGen III for debt instruments or debt obligations issued by ReGen III to finance the Company’s Texas recycling project. The placement of these debt instruments may include the participation of commercial lenders and/or certain United States governmental agencies. The services to be provided by Raymond James are over and above the existing debt proposals ReGen III received from lenders such as Export Development Canada.
Working with Raymond James to secure comprehensive, project-level debt coverage is complementary to the Company’s recently announced engagement of National Bank Financial Inc. for financial advisory and investment banking services in support of existing and proposed project-level financing structures, and to secure US$150 million in equity.
Greg Clarkes, Chairman & CEO of ReGen III stated, “We look forward to working with Raymond James, a proven leader in U.S. debt financings. Through Raymond James’ broad institutional client footprint, ReGen III will be showcasing its Texas project to a much wider American audience. We are excited about the prospects of securing additional project debt financing opportunities arising from the engagement of Raymond James and we look forward to building a successful, long-term relationship that translates into significant value for our shareholders.”
