TORONTO, Jan. 14, 2019 /CNW/ - Callidus Capital Corporation ("Callidus" or the "Company") (TSX:CBL) today announced that an advance ruling certificate under section 102 of the Competition Act has been issued in connection with its previously announced sale of the commodity division of C&C Resources Inc. ("C&C") for all-cash consideration of approximately $100 million. Closing is expected to occur during the current quarter.
Callidus will realize the vast majority of the current carrying value for all of the assets of C&C, which it acquired in 2017 and will retain ownership of C&C's growth-oriented, value-added operations, including its Quesnel, B.C., sawmill, processing facilities and associated logging operations, as well as a plant in Cranbrook, B.C.
David Reese, President & COO of Callidus, commented, "The issuance of an advance ruling certificate under the Competition Act was the principal outstanding condition precedent to closing. C&C's remaining assets represent additional value which we will also be seeking to monetize post closing."
