B Riley to Sell New Baby Bonds

B Riley Financial has announced a new 2 million share offering of baby bonds.  The notes will have an early redemption period starting 5/31/2020 and a maturity date of 5/31/2023.

This issue contains some bonus payments for early redemptions.  Between 5/31/2020 and 5/31/2021 the redemption is $25.50 plus accrued interest. Between 5/31/2021 and 5/31/2022 the redemption is $25,25 plus accrued interest.  After this date redemption is at $25 plus accrued interest.  While these bonuses appear nice it is likely a tradeoff for a slightly lower coupon.

The anticipated ticker will be RILYH which should start trading in about a week.  There will not be OTC Grey market trading.

The preliminary prospectus is here.

  1. Hi Tim,

    Any idea why they are raising this capital and do you plan to purchase or add to a model portfolio?
