/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES/
TORONTO, May 24, 2013 /CNW/ - Look Communications Inc. ("Look") (NEX: LOK.H and LOK.K) today announced that it has received conditional approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") for the previously announced change of business transaction and concurrent private placement.
As previously announced on March 26, 2013, Look entered into a securities purchase agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") pursuant to which Look has agreed to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Sunwave Gas & Power Inc. ("Sunwave"), a privately-held provider of innovative energy commodity products and services based in Toronto, for aggregate consideration of $1 million. It is anticipated that consideration for the transaction will be satisfied through the issuance of 3,382,974 multiple voting shares and 3,759,883 subordinate voting shares in the capital of Look, each valued at $0.14 per share (the "Acquisition"). Concurrently with the execution of the Purchase Agreement, Look entered into subscription agreements (the "Subscription Agreements") with a group of sophisticated investors pursuant to which the investors will subscribe, on a private placement basis, for an aggregate of 30,446,767 multiple voting shares and 33,838,947 subordinate voting shares in the capital of Look at a price of $0.14 per share for aggregate subscription proceeds of $9,000,000 (the "Private Placement" and, together with the Acquisition, the "Transactions"). The multiple voting shares and subordinate voting shares intended to be issued pursuant to the Transactions will be issued in the same proportion as the number of multiple and subordinate voting shares currently outstanding.
Look has set July 4, 2013 as the date for the shareholders meeting to consider the Transactions and has set June 4, 2013 as the record date for determining shareholders entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the meeting.
In accordance with the policies of the Exchange, Look's multiple voting shares and subordinate voting shares were halted from trading upon announcement of the Transactions, and will remain halted until the completion of the Transactions or until the Transactions are abandoned.
Completion of the Transactions remains subject to a number of conditions, including the approval of Look's shareholders and the final approval of the Exchange. All of the terms and conditions of the Transactions are set forth in the Purchase Agreement and the form of Subscription Agreement, copies of which are available under Look's profile at www.sedar.com. Additional information regarding the Transactions and the businesses of Look and Sunwave, will be included in an information circular to be prepared by Look in accordance with the policies of the Exchange and applicable securities laws, a copy of which will also be available under Look's profile at www.sedar.com.
Look continues to vigorously pursue recovery of the approximately $20 million of sale awards paid in 2009 pursuant to the statement of claim issued by Look in July, 2011 and CBCA motion materials filed in August, 2011.
