TORONTO, March 27, 2019 /CNW/ - Pursuant to an Order of the Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) issued on February 15, 2019 (the Meetings Order), the Monitor was authorized to hold meetings of affected unsecured creditors (the Meetings) of Sears Canada Inc. and their affiliates (collectively, the Sears Canada Entities). The Meetings were originally scheduled to be held on March 28, 2019 for the purpose of voting on the Sears Canada Entities' plan of compromise or arrangement filed on February 15, 2019.
Please be advised that, in accordance with paragraph 34 of the Meetings Order, the Monitor will be adjourning both Meetings to a later date, time and place to be determined by the Monitor. The new date for the adjourned Meetings, along with details as to venue, will be provided sufficiently in advance to allow affected unsecured creditors sufficient time to submit creditor proxies (which must be received 5 business days before the date of the adjourned Meetings). All creditor proxies that have already been submitted in contemplation of the Meetings being held as originally scheduled will continue to be valid for the adjourned Meetings. The adjournment of the Meetings will provide the Monitor with additional time to resolve certain outstanding disputed claims in the estate.
