Caliber Home Loans has postponed its plans to go public in October 2020, citing unfavourable market conditions as the reason for the delay. Here's what we know about the IPO so far and how investors in Canada can prepare to buy Caliber Home Loans stock when it becomes available.
Caliber Home Loans, a private national mortgage lender in the US, postponed its planned $100 million IPO on October 28, 2020.
The cancellation comes in light of market conditions, which have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. The company has stated that it will "continue to evaluate the timing for the proposed offering as market conditions develop."
Initially, Caliber Home Loans planned to list its stock under the ticker symbol "HOMS" at a price point of $14-$16 per stock. Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and Barclays Capital Inc. were slated to act as lead underwriters of the deal.
We'll update this page as new information becomes available.

Once Caliber Home Loans goes public, you'll need a brokerage account to invest. Consider opening a brokerage account today so you're ready as soon as the stock hits the market.
You won't be able to buy Caliber Home Loans stocks on a Canadian stock exchange like the TSX or CSE. Instead, you'll need a Canadian broker that provides access to stocks sold on international exchanges. However, some Canadian brokerages don't offer access to international investments at all or only provide access to a limited range of investment opportunities.
You can access US exchanges like the NYSE and the NASDAQ using Canadian trading platforms like Questrade, Wealthsimple Trade, Scotia iTRADE and Interactive Brokers. Interactive Brokers also provides access to many stock exchanges outside North America like the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (SEHK), Korea Stock Exchange (KSE), National Stock Exchange of India (NSE), Frankfurt Stock Exchange (FWB) and London Stock Exchange (LSE).
The process of buying stocks listed on international exchanges is basically the same as buying stocks in a Canadian company. You buy and sell using your online trading account or through an investment broker who handles international stocks.
Agreements between Canada and the US require Canadians holding US stock investments to pay the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) a 15% withholding tax on any dividends earned on their US stocks. Interest earned from bonds or other interest-yielding US investments is similarly taxed at a rate of 10%.
An exception is made for stock investments held in trust exclusively designed to provide retirement income. Such trusts include RRIFs, LIRAs, LIFs, LRIFs and Prescribed RRIFs. RRSPs are also exempt from US withholding tax if you own US investments in the form of US stocks, bonds or ETFs.
All income from investments, including foreign investments, must be declared as part of your income on your Canadian tax return. Unless your US earnings are exempt from withholding tax, this means you'll be double taxed on those earnings — first by the IRS, then by the CRA. However, the CRA may allow you to claim foreign tax credits for any taxes you've already paid to the IRS.
