UBS announces the conversion of its convertible debentures in Look

TORONTO, April 22 /CNW/ - Unique Broadband Systems, Inc. (the "Company" or "UBS") (TSX Venture: UBS) announced today that Look Communications ("Look"), its 51 per cent controlled subsidiary, will redeem all of its outstanding 7 per cent secured convertible debentures ("Debentures"), in the aggregate amount of $4,158,000, for cash on May 25, 2010.

UBS has agreed with Look to use all reasonable efforts to convert into Look shares only such portion of the $3 million in Debentures it holds so as to ensure that it will hold less than fifty percent (50 per cent) of the votes attached to the shares of Look on a fully-diluted basis. The Debentures will be converted into Multiple Voting Shares and Subordinate Voting Shares, in accordance with their terms, on the basis of one-half of a Multiple Voting Share and one-half of a Subordinate Voting Share for every $0.075 principal amount of the Debentures.

UBS, through its wholly owned subsidiary UBS Wireless Services, currently holds a 51.8 per cent fully diluted economic interest and a 51.1 per cent fully diluted voting interest in Look through the following Look securities:

    1.  24,864,478 Multiple Voting Shares;
    2.  29,921,308 Subordinate Voting Shares; and
    3.  $3 million in 7 per cent convertible debentures, which is convertible
        into 20 million Multiple Voting Shares and 20 million Subordinate
        Voting Shares.

After the intended conversion of the Debentures, UBS expects to hold a fully diluted voting interest in Look of approximately 49 per cent.

UBS plans to hold the shares for investment purposes and may in the future take such actions in respect of its holdings as it deems appropriate in light of the circumstances then existing.
