Foraco announces change to resolution being presented to shareholders at ordinary general meeting

TORONTO, ON and MARSEILLES, France, April 15, 2015 /CNW/ - Foraco International SA (TSX: FAR) (the "Company" or "Foraco") will be holding its ordinary general meeting of shareholders (the "Meeting") on May 5, 2015.  In connection with the Meeting, the Company has mailed to shareholders, among other things, a Notice of Meeting, a form of Proxy and a Proxy Circular dated March 31, 2015 (collectively, the "Meeting Materials").

The Board of Directors of the Company will be proposing an amendment to the second resolution (as set out in the Meeting Materials) that is being presented to Shareholders at the Meeting.

The full text of the second resolution (as amended) which will be presented to Shareholders at the Meeting is as follows:

"The Annual General Meeting approves the consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 as presented by the Board of Directors and the Auditors, and established according to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and in conformity with articles L. 225-100 and following articles of the French Commercial Code, which have resulted in a loss amounting to US$ 19,412,000."

The purpose of the amendment is to correct an error in the text of the second resolution as set out in the Meeting Materials which mistakenly referred to the gross profit (loss) of Foraco on a stand-alone basis (which was a profit of €3,593,813) rather than on a consolidated basis (which was a loss of US$19,412,000).
