VANCOUVER, Oct. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Radiant Communications Corp. ("Radiant") (TSXV: RCN) is pleased to announce that it has received shareholder and optionholder approval for its previously announced going-private transaction (the "Transaction") pursuant to which an affiliated entity of Comwave Networks Inc., 8612536 Canada Inc. (the "Purchaser"), will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Radiant ("Common Shares") that the Purchaser and its affiliates do not already own for cash consideration of $1.43 per Common Share (the "Consideration") by way of a plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement"). Pursuant to the Arrangement, all of the outstanding options of the Company ("Options") will be cancelled and optionholders holding such Options that have an exercise price that is less than the Consideration will receive a cash amount equal to the amount by which the Consideration exceeds the exercise price payable under such Options.
Approval of the Transaction was given at a special meeting of Radiant shareholders and optionholders held on October 11, 2013 (the "Meeting"). At the Meeting, approximately 88.2% of the votes cast by the holders of Common Shares and 89.7% of the votes cast by the holders of Common Shares and Options voting together as one class were voted in favour of the Arrangement.
The completion of the Arrangement is subject to the final approval of the Supreme Court of British Columbia and the satisfaction of certain other closing conditions customary in a transaction of this nature. Radiant is currently scheduled to return to court on October 16, 2013 to seek a final order to implement the Arrangement. Assuming that these conditions are satisfied, it is expected that the closing of the Arrangement will be completed on October 17, 2013.
Further information regarding the Meeting and the proposed Arrangement are contained in Radiant's management information circular for the Meeting dated September 11, 2013, which is available under Radiant's profile on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) at www.sedar.com.
