The embattled alternative mortgage lender will pay $10 million to settle with the OSC and reimburse the provincial securities watchdog costs of $500,000.

Under terms of the proposed deal, Home Capital founder Gerald Soloway will pay an administrative penalty of $1 million and will be barred from acting as a director or officer of a public company for four years.
