QUÉBEC CITY and MYRTLE BEACH, SC, Oct. 1, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - TSO3 Inc. ("TSO3" or the "Company") (TSX: TOS) today announced that is has completed the previously-announced statutory plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (Québec) pursuant to which a wholly-owned subsidiary of Stryker Corporation acquired all of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company (the "Shares") for CAD$0.43 per share in cash (the "Arrangement").
In order to receive the consideration for their Shares payable pursuant to the Arrangement, registered shareholders of TSO3 must complete and sign the Letter of Transmittal sent to them with the management information circular for the special meeting of TSO3 shareholders held on September 23, 2019 and deliver such Letter of Transmittal to Computershare Trust Company of Canada (the "Depositary") together with certificates representing their Shares, if applicable, and such additional documents and instruments as the Depositary may reasonably require. A copy of the Letter of Transmittal may also be obtained by contacting the Depositary and is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com under the Company's profile. Any questions regarding the payment of the consideration, including any request for another copy of the Letter of Transmittal, should be directed to the Depositary by telephone at 1-800-564-6253 or by e-mail at [email protected].
Shareholders of TSO3 whose Shares are registered in the name of a nominee (bank, trust company, securities broker or other intermediary) should contact that nominee for assistance in depositing their Shares and should follow the instructions of such nominee in order to receive payment for their Shares.
As a result of the completion of the Arrangement, it is expected that the Shares will soon be delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Company has applied to the relevant securities regulatory authorities in Canada to cease to be a reporting issuer for the purposes of securities legislation.
