TORONTO, Oct. 27, 2016 /CNW/ - Brookfield Capital Partners Ltd. ("BCP") announced that BCP and Sagard Capital Partners, L.P. ("Sagard Capital") have entered into a confidentiality agreement (the "NDA") relating to Performance Sports Group Ltd. (the "Issuer"). The NDA has the effect of modifying previously disclosed plans or future intentions of BCP and 251091708 Delaware LP (a Delaware limited partnership indirectly controlled by BCP which owns 13.23% of the currently outstanding common shares of the Issuer) with respect to the Issuer.
Pursuant to the terms of the NDA, Sagard Capital, BCP and their respective representatives have discussed the possibility of Sagard Capital and BCP, acting together with respect to potential plans or proposals that may involve one or more of the following related to the Issuer (each, a "Potential Transaction"): restructurings; possible issuances by the Issuer of additional and/or refinancing indebtedness; the acquisition of indebtedness of the Issuer or its subsidiaries; and/or other strategic alternatives.
Sagard Capital and BCP have not yet entered into any agreements, term sheets, or other arrangements among themselves with respect to any joint activity.
