Fairfax Files Universal Shelf Prospectus


Recommended Posts

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - 09/18/09) - Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited (TSX:FFH - News)(NYSE:FFH - News) has filed a preliminary short form base shelf prospectus with the Canadian securities regulatory authorities. The shelf prospectus will allow Fairfax to offer from time to time over a 25-month period up to US$2.0 billion of debt, equity or other securities.


The filing is intended to restore the capacity which was available to Fairfax prior to its recent offering of subordinate voting shares which closed on September 11, 2009. The US$2.0 billion maximum also represents an increase of US$1.0 billion in total capacity, which is consistent with Fairfax's increased market capitalization and will provide Fairfax with additional financial flexibility.


Should Fairfax offer any securities, it will make a prospectus supplement available that will include the specific terms of the securities being offered.


Upon a receipt being issued for the final short form base shelf prospectus, Fairfax's existing base shelf prospectus will be withdrawn.




Does that mean they expect to make another big move?
