Home Capital Group declared late Wednesday it has attained a settlement with Ontario Securities Commission staff over the regulator’s charges of misleading disclosures encompassing mortgage beginnings and falsified loan applications in 2015.
On Thursday, Shares in alternative lender Home Capital surged after media reports recommended the company was near an arrangement for new financing taking after the finish of an OSC examination.
Home Capital increased 12.7 percent to close at $13.67 on Thursday after a report from Reuters proposed the company was near securing a loan of about $2 billion to supplant an expensive emergency credit line it consented to in April.
“Home Capital is aware of recent media reports concerning a potential refinancing transaction,” the company said in a release.
“The Company has previously indicated that it is pursuing additional financing and strategic options. As a general policy, the Company does not comment on speculation and rumours. The Company will inform the market as required but does not intend to make any further comment or release regarding speculation.”
The developments came a day after Home Capital shut the book on an OSC examination concerning the company, settling charges that it deceived investors by not instantly revealing data it uncovered about distorted loan applications for around $30 million.
Under that arrangement, three previous executives will pay fines and punishments and be restricted for going about as a chief or officer of a public company for a time frame.
