MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 29, 2018 /CNW/ - Cargojet Inc. ("Cargojet" or the "Corporation") (TSX: CJT, CJT.A) announced today that it has completed a private placement of 10,000 common voting shares of Cargojet to Arlene Dickinson, a member of Cargojet's Board of Directors appointed earlier this year. The private placement facilitates Ms. Dickinson's acquisition of shares under the Corporation's share ownership requirements for directors. The Corporation intends to use the proceeds from the private placement for general corporate and working capital purposes.
As a related party transaction under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), the board of directors, with Ms. Dickinson declaring her interest, considered and approved the private placement. At the time the transaction was agreed to, the fair market value of the common voting shares purchased and the consideration paid for such shares was less than 25% of the market capitalization of the Corporation. As a result, the transaction is exempted from the minority shareholder and valuation requirements contained in MI 61-101. The transaction was conditionally approved by the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") on November 28, 2018, subject to customary listing conditions. The aggregate subscription of the common voting shares purchased was $680,900, representing the five day volume weighted average trading price of the common voting shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange prior to receipt of the TSX conditional approval, subject to applicable discount. The common voting shares will be subject to a hold period that expires on March 30, 2019.
Cargojet is Canada's leading provider of time sensitive overnight air cargo services and carries over 1,300,000 pounds of cargo each business night. Cargojet operates its network across North America each business night, utilizing a fleet of all-cargo aircraft.
