Dominion Citrus Shareholders Approve Plan of Arrangement For Purchase of Preference Shares

TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dominion Citrus Limited (“Dominion Citrus” or “DCL”) is pleased to announce that DCL shareholders voted overwhelmingly to approve the plan of arrangement (the “Plan of Arrangement”) pursuant to which Dominion Subco Inc. (“Subco”) will acquire all of the 1,021,150 issued and outstanding Series A Preference Shares of Dominion Citrus (the “Preference Shares”) for $1.75 per Preference Share, following which Dominion Citrus and Subco will amalgamate to continue as Dominion Citrus Limited (the “Arrangement”).  The Plan of Arrangement includes a settlement and release of all claims (if any) which holders of Preference Shares may have against DCL and its affiliates, without further payment.

At the special meeting of shareholders held today, November 28, 2017 (the “Meeting”), almost 100% of the votes cast by holders of Common Shares and Preference Shares voting together and 99.98% of the votes cast by holders of the Preference Shares voting separately as a class were voted in favour of the Arrangement.  In addition, on a vote by the holders of Preference Shares, excluding those shareholders who are “interested parties” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions, 99.98% of the votes cast were voted in favour of the Arrangement.

Dominion Citrus will apply to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) on November 30, 2017 for a final order approving the Arrangement.  If all conditions to completion of the Arrangement are satisfied, the Arrangement is expected to become effective on December 31, 2017.
