TORONTO, Sept. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northland Power Inc. (“Northland” or the “Company”) (TSX: NPI) announced today that it has renewed its at-the-market equity program (“ATM Program”) to allow the Company to issue up to an additional $750 million of common shares from treasury (the “Common Shares”) to the public from time to time, at the Company’s discretion in connection with the ATM Program. The ATM Program was renewed following the termination of the Company’s previous at-the-market equity program as a result of having sold most of the Common Shares permitted to be sold under the previous program. Any Common Shares sold in the ATM Program will be sold through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) or any other marketplace on which the Common Shares are listed, quoted or otherwise traded (collectively, the “Marketplaces”) at the prevailing market price at the time of sale.

The ATM Program provides Northland with an additional source of financial flexibility and will be activated at the Company’s discretion if and as required based on the funding requirements of the Company’s identified growth initiatives. The volume and timing of distributions under the ATM Program, if any, will be determined at the Company's sole discretion.

The ATM Program will be effective until the earlier of July 16, 2023 and the date that all of the Common Shares issuable under the ATM Program have been issued, unless terminated prior to such date by the Company or the Agents in accordance with the terms of the equity distribution agreement dated September 7, 2022 (the “Equity Distribution Agreement”) between the Company and CIBC Capital Markets, National Bank Financial Inc., BMO Capital Markets, Desjardins Securities Inc., RBC Dominion Securities Inc., TD Securities Inc. and Scotia Capital Inc. (collectively, the “Agents”). Distributions of the Common Shares through the ATM Program will be made pursuant to the terms of the Equity Distribution Agreement.

Northland intends to use the net proceeds from the ATM Program, if any, to fund the advancement of its growth projects and for general corporate purposes. Refer to Northland’s 2022 Second Quarter Report for additional information on growth projects. As Common Shares sold in the ATM Program will be distributed at the prevailing market price at the time of the sale, prices may vary among purchasers during the period of the distribution.

The ATM Program is being renewed pursuant to a prospectus supplement dated September 7, 2022 (the “Prospectus Supplement”) to the Company's short form base shelf prospectus dated June 16, 2021 (the “Shelf Prospectus”).
