Redline Communications Receives TSX Acceptance of Shareholder Rights Plan

TORONTO, March 15, 2016 /CNW/ - Redline Communications (www.rdlcom.com) Group Inc. (TSX: RDL)("Redline" or the "Company") announces today that the Toronto Stock Exchange has accepted notice for filing of the shareholder rights plan (the "Rights Plan") adopted by Redline on March 7, 2016, subject to ratification by Redline's shareholders within six months. Such approval will be sought at the upcoming annual general and special meeting of the Company, which is expected to be held in June 2016.  If ratified by the shareholders of Redline, the Rights Plan will have an initial term of three years.

The primary objectives of the Rights Plan are to ensure that, in the context of a bid for control of the Company through an acquisition of shares of the Company, all shareholders have an equal opportunity to participate in the bid and are given adequate time to assess the bid. The Rights Plan is not intended to prevent take-over bids that treat shareholders fairly and offer fair value, and permits bids that meet certain requirements intended to protect the interests of all shareholders.

The description of the Rights Plan in this news release is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the rights plan, a copy of which is available under Redline's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
