America First Multifamily Investors, L.P. Issues 2,000,000 Series A-1 Preferred Units in Exchange Transaction

 

Omaha, Nebraska – America First Multifamily Investors, L.P. (NASDAQ: ATAX) (“the Partnership”) announced today that on April 26, 2022 the Partnership executed an Exchange Agreement to issue 2,000,000 Series A-1 Preferred Units representing limited partnership interests in the Partnership (the “Series A-1 Preferred Units”) to a financial institution in exchange for 2,000,000 previously outstanding Series A Preferred Units representing limited partnership interests in the Partnership (the “Series A Preferred Units”) held by the financial institution. There were no net proceeds or other cash consideration paid to or from the Partnership as a result of the exchange transaction. The stated value of the newly issued Series A-1 Preferred Units is $20,000,000. The Series A-1 Preferred Units were issued in accordance with the Partnership’s existing “shelf” registration statement on Form S-4 for the exchange of up to 9,450,000 of previously issued Series A Preferred Units.

 

The Series A Preferred Units and Series A-1 Preferred Units are non-cumulative, non-convertible, and non-voting classes of limited partnership interests in the Partnership for which the holder has an option to have the units redeemed on the sixth anniversary of the acquisition date and each subsequent anniversary thereafter. The Series A Preferred Units that were exchanged were originally issued to the financial institution in May 2016 and March 2017. The exchange transaction allows the Partnership to retain $20,000,000 of low-cost capital from the original issuance of the Series A Preferred Units and extend the earliest potential redemption date to April 2028.

 

“The exchange of our original Series A Preferred Units for newly issued Series A-1 Preferred Units maintains our access to non-dilutive, fixed-rate and low-cost institutional capital that will enable us to continue to execute on our overall strategy for the benefit of our unitholders,” said Kenneth C. Rogozinski, Chief Executive Officer of the Partnership.
