Mainstreet Health Investments to Seek $95 Million in Canadian Share Offering

Toronto-based Mainstreet Health Investments Inc. is planning to raise $95 million by listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange and selling shares in Canada.

Mainstreet Health Investments, which owns 11 seniors housing and care properties in Illinois, is controlled by Carmel, Indiana-based real estate developer Mainstreet Property Group.


The company is planning to sell shares for between $10 and $11 each, and it is hoping for a yearly dividend yield of 7% to 7.4%, Mainstreet Health Investments said in a filing with regulators. The sale is being led by Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Bank of Montreal and National Bank of Canada.

Mainstreet Health Investments intends to use the proceeds of the sale to purchase 13 new properties in New York, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Kansas, according to the filing.

Mainstreet Health Investments was established via a $302-million reverse takeover of Kingsway Arms Retirement Residences Inc., which owned 10 Chicago-area senior housing and care communities. The reverse takeover was announced Nov. 6, 2015 and finished April 4, 2016.
