Canaccord welcomes Supreme Court of Canada decision



    VANCOUVER, Sept. 19 /CNW/ - Canaccord Capital Inc. ("CCI" or the
"Company") welcomes the Supreme Court of Canada's decision not to grant leave
to appeal the Canadian Asset-Backed Commercial Paper (ABCP) restructuring
plan. This ruling completes the court process, paving the way for the
execution of the restructuring transaction and the Canaccord Relief Program.
    "We commend the Supreme Court's decision," said Paul Reynolds, President
and CEO. "We are eager to complete our relief program and restore funds to our
clients, who have been negatively impacted by this market disruption. We
expect timelines for this process to be announced in the coming days."
    The Canaccord Relief Program combines the resale of restructured ABCP
notes to credible purchasers with a Canaccord-funded top-up to achieve par
value. Eligible clients - those holding an aggregate of $1 million or less of
ABCP - will remain entitled to receive any unpaid interest pursuant to the
Pan-Canadian Investor Committee Plan and will be reimbursed by Canaccord for
their share of any restructuring costs.
