TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2014 /CNW/ - McVicar Industries Inc. ("McVicar") (TSXV symbol MCV) announces today that the date for its previously
announced special meeting of shareholders has been rescheduled from
March 31st, to April 29th, 2014.
The rescheduling of the meeting is to allow sufficient time for Evans &
Evans, Inc. to complete the formal valuation of McVicar and their
opinion as to the fairness, from the financial point of view,
(collectively the "Valuation") of the previously announced, proposed amalgamation (the "Amalgamation") of McVicar with 1909734 Ontario Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of
GC Consulting & Investment Corp. ("GCCI"), a corporation controlled by Dr. Gang Chai, McVicar's chief executive
The Valuation is being prepared in accordance with Multilateral
Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions of the Canadian Securities Administrators and under the supervision of
the Special Committee of the McVicar Board. The Valuation will form the
basis of the Special Committee's recommendation as to whether
shareholders of McVicar should approve the Amalgamation.
As previously disclosed, upon completion of the Amalgamation, if
approved, shareholders of McVicar (other than shareholders who exercise
their dissent and appraisal rights under s. 185 of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) and GCCI and related parties of GCCI) will effectively
receive a cash consideration of $0.50 per McVicar share and GCCI will
have effectively acquired 100% of the issued shares of McVicar.
McVicar Industries Inc., headquartered in Toronto, Canada, is focused on
investments and acquisitions of businesses in China. At present,
McVicar has operations in both electronic components and specialty
chemicals in three operations in China.
