Mosaic welcomed Mark Gardhouse as our new CEO effective July 11, 2016.  Mark brings significant private equity investment experience to Mosaic and will lead Mosaic's portfolio growth initiatives.  Former CEO John Mackay will continue his active involvement in the Company as Executive Chairman.

The acquisition of Mackow, announced August 2 & 8, 2016 (the "Mackow Acquisition"), together with the two previously announced energy-related divestitures in 2015 (Streamline Mechanical and Polar Geomatic) have materially improved the strategic positioning of Mosaic's portfolio.  We anticipate that inclusion of Mackow's operating results in Mosaic's consolidated results will improve Mosaic's operating metrics and payout ratios.  

The Mackow Acquisition is the largest in Mosaic's history.  The majority of Mackow's revenues are from fabrication of metal components designed for installation in transit buses and motor coaches.  The majority of these buses and motor coaches are sold into the U.S. market.  We view the North American public and private mass transportation market as having solid long-term fundamentals.

Through 2015 and thus far in 2016, we expanded our acquisition team, broadened our geographic focus and geared our efforts toward somewhat larger, non-cyclical enterprises.  This move to greater portfolio economic diversity, size and quality may result in somewhat higher valuations for targeted acquisitions.  However, with our internal resources and access to capital we feel we can complete attractive acquisitions which will enhance Mosaic's value and strength.  

The Company continues to see solid deal flow from across Canada spanning a wide range of industrial sectors.  Mosaic's diverse deal-flow and unique business strategy provides the Company an exceptional vantage point to assess which sectors it views as most attractive for investment.


Mosaic is a Canadian investment company that owns a portfolio of established businesses which span a diverse range of industries and geographies.  Mosaic's strategy is to create long-term value for its shareholders through accretive acquisitions, long-term portfolio ownership, sustained cash flows and organic portfolio growth.  Mosaic achieves its objectives by maintaining financial discipline, acquiring businesses at attractive valuations, performing extensive acquisition due diligence, utilizing creative transaction structuring and working closely with subsidiary businesses after acquisition.

Forward-Looking Information

This news release contains forward-looking information and statements within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities laws (herein referred to as "forward-looking statements") that involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.  All information and statements in this press release which are not statements of historical fact may be forward-looking statements. The words "believe", "expect", "intend", "estimate", "anticipate", "project", "scheduled", and similar expressions, as well as future or conditional verbs such as "will", "should", "would", and "could" often identify forward-looking statements. In particular this news release may contain forward-looking statements regarding anticipated financial and operating performance for Mosaic including the anticipated positive impact of the Mackow Acquisition on revenue, income from operations, cash flows and payout ratios. Such statements or information, if any, are only predictions and reflect the current beliefs of management with respect to future events and are based on information currently available to management.  Actual results and events may differ materially from those contemplated by these forward-looking statements due to these statements being subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. Undue reliance should not be placed on these forward-looking statements as there can be no assurance that the plans, intentions or expectations upon which they are based will occur. By their nature forward-looking statements involve assumptions and known and unknown risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, that contribute to the possibility that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other things contemplated by the forward-looking statements will not occur. Some of the assumptions made by Mosaic upon which forward-looking statements are typically based include:  the business operations of the operating businesses of Mosaic continuing on a basis consistent with prior years; the ability of Mosaic and its subsidiaries to access financing from time to time on favorable terms; the ability of Mosaic to realize anticipated benefits of acquisitions; the continuation of executive and operating management or the non-disruptive replacement of them on competitive terms; the ability of Mosaic to maintain reasonably stable operating and general administrative expenses; the current economic environment in western Canada (including commodity prices, such as oil prices) stabilizing and showing signs of strengthening over the coming year;  the economic environment in Canada not deteriorating due to the influence of international economic developments in the United States, Europe, Asia and elsewhere; and continuing solid long-term fundamentals in the North American mass transportation market.

A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the results stated in the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, risks related to: general economic and business conditions; the failure of Mosaic to identify acquisition targets or complete announced acquisitions; third parties honouring their contractual obligations with Mosaic and its subsidiaries; results of management's ongoing efforts to sell, re-lease, lease, develop and improve real estate owned and being acquired indirectly by Mosaic through its subsidiaries; the failure to realize the anticipated benefits of Mosaic's recent and future acquisitions; adverse fluctuations in commodity prices; competition for, among other things, capital, equipment and skilled personnel; the inability to generate sufficient cash flow from operations to meet current and future obligations; the inability to obtain required debt and/or equity capital on suitable terms; competition for acquisition targets; supply disruptions; adverse weather conditions; seasonality and fluctuations in results; and limited diversification of Mosaic's subsidiaries. Should any of the risks or uncertainties facing Mosaic and its subsidiaries materialize, or should assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements prove incorrect, actual results, performance, activities or achievements could vary materially from those expressed or implied by any forward-looking statements contained in this news release.

Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list of risks is not exhaustive. Additional information on these and other factors that could affect the operations or financial results of Mosaic and its subsidiaries are included in Mosaic's annual information form for the year ended December 31, 2015 which has been filed under Mosaic's profile on SEDAR (
