(TSX:TCL.A)(TSX:TCL.B)(TSX:TCL.PR.D) announced today that it has priced an offering of $250 million aggregate principal amount of 3.897% senior unsecured notes ("the Notes") due in 2019.

Furthermore, the current environment provides the Corporation with an opportunity to secure financing at attractive levels," said Nelson Gentiletti, Chief Financial and Development Officer of Transcontinental Inc.
