Brookfield Renewable Announces Renewal of Normal Course Issuer Bid for Preferred Units and Renewal of BRP Equity's Normal Course Issuer Bid for Preferred Shares

07/07/2021 | 06:30am EDT

All amounts in US dollars unless otherwise indicated

BROOKFIELD, News, July 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brookfield Renewable today announced that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) has accepted a notice filed by Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P. (TSX: BEP.UN; NYSE: BEP) (“Brookfield Renewable”) of its intention to renew its normal course issuer bid for its Class A preferred limited partnership units (“Preferred Units”) and has also accepted a notice filed by Brookfield Renewable Power Preferred Equity Inc. (“BRP Equity”) of its intention to renew its normal course issuer bid for its outstanding Class A preference shares (“Preferred Shares”). BRP Equity is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Brookfield Renewable. Brookfield Renewable believes that in the event that the Preferred Units or Preferred Shares trade in a price range that does not fully reflect their value, the acquisition of Preferred Units or Preferred Shares may represent an attractive use of available funds. After giving effect to the previously announced redemption of Series 9 Preferred Units on July 31, 2021, there will be five series of Preferred Units and five series of Preferred Shares outstanding and listed on the TSX.

Under Brookfield Renewable’s normal course issuer bid for Preferred Units, Brookfield Renewable is authorized to repurchase a total of approximately 10% of the public float of each respective series of the Preferred Units as follows:

6.   In accordance with TSX rules, any daily repurchases with respect to the Series 2 Preferred Shares and the Series 5 Preferred Shares would be limited to 1,000 Preferred Shares of such series.

Repurchases under each normal course issuer bid are authorized to commence on July 9, 2021 and each normal course issuer bid will terminate on July 8, 2022, or earlier should Brookfield Renewable or BRP Equity, as applicable, complete its repurchases under its respective normal course issuer bid prior to such date.

Under Brookfield Renewable’s prior normal course issuer bid that commenced on July 9, 2020 and expires on July 8, 2021, Brookfield Renewable previously sought and received approval from the TSX to repurchase up to 288,549 Series 5 Preferred Units, 700,000 Series 7 Preferred Units, 800,000 Series 9 Preferred Units, 1,000,000 Series 11 Preferred Units, 1,000,000 Series 13 Preferred Units and 700,000 Series 15 Preferred Units. Brookfield Renewable has not repurchased any Preferred Units in the past 12 months.

Under BRP Equity’s prior normal course issuer bid that commenced on July 9, 2020 and expires on July 8, 2021, BRP Equity previously sought and received approval from the TSX to repurchase up to 684,873 Series 1 Preferred Shares, 311,053 Series 2 Preferred Shares, 996,139 Series 3 Preferred Shares, 411,450 Series 5 Preferred Shares and 700,000 Series 6 Preferred Shares. BRP Equity has not repurchased any Preferred Shares in the past 12 months.

All purchases of the Preferred Units and Preferred Shares will be effected through the facilities of the TSX and/or alternative trading systems, and all Preferred Units and Preferred Shares acquired under the applicable normal course issuer bid will be cancelled. Repurchases will be subject to compliance with applicable Canadian securities laws. 

From time to time, when Brookfield Renewable or BRP Equity does not possess material non-public information about itself or its securities, it may enter into automatic purchase plans with its broker to allow for the purchase of Preferred Units or Preferred Shares, as applicable, at times when it ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods and insider trading rules. Any such plans entered into with the broker of Brookfield Renewable or BRP Equity will be adopted in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws. The series of Preferred Units and Preferred Shares subject to an automatic purchase plan may vary. Outside of these periods, Preferred Units and Preferred Shares will be repurchased in accordance with management’s discretion and in compliance with applicable law.
