2013 Review and Outlook
The Corporation reports the following operational and financial highlights.
On January 30, 2014, NorRock Realty Finance Corporation ("NorRock") (TSX VENTURE: RF.H) announced an amendment to its proposed reactivation transaction that was previously disclosed via press release on February 27, 2013 and June 13, 2013. NorRock entered into a letter of intent on June 7, 2013 with Highview Financial Holdings Inc. ("Highview") to become Highview's strategic capital partner and will continue to proceed with its subscription for 7,000,000 common shares from treasury, such that NorRock shall own, on a fully diluted basis, 70% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Highview (the "Highview Shares") upon the closing of the transaction (the "Highview Acquisition").
Highview is a private corporation incorporated under the federal laws of Canada and is the parent company to Highview Asset Management Ltd., an Ontario corporation, and Highview Wealth Practices Inc., a federally incorporated corporation.
Highview is one of Canada's leading outsourced Chief Investment Officer (CIO) firms managing the private wealth of affluent families, the pension and investable assets of their businesses, and the foundations & endowments which they support. While the outsourced CIO industry in the United States & Europe is extremely well-established, Canada is in the early stages of growth in this important new niche segment in the Canadian asset management industry. With approximately $900 million of client assets under its care (AUM & AUA), Highview services its clients directly and in partnership with its professional advisors. Highview is objective and transparent in architecting financial portfolios for its clients and does not engage in any related investment management businesses.
The Highview Acquisition is intended to constitute a reactivation transaction (the "Reactivation Transaction") of NorRock to enable it to list on the Exchange. The Reactivation Transaction will constitute a reverse takeover transaction ("RTO") as defined in Policy 5.2 of the Corporate Finance Manual of the Exchange. The transaction is subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals.
Following closing of the Reactivation Transaction, it is NorRock's intention to change its previous business focus from being a secured lender in the commercial real estate industry to carrying on business in the financial services industry with a focus on wealth management.
