Carrus Capital Corporation Announces Final Court Order for Plan of Arrangement, Share Distribution Record Date, and Share Consolidation

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/11/14 -- Carrus Capital Corporation (the "Company" or "Carrus") (TSX VENTURE: CHQ) is pleased to announce that on March 26, 2014, the Company obtained a final order from the Supreme Court of British Columbia to the implementation of the plan of arrangement.

The Company is also pleased to announce that it will be implementing the approved spin-off of BioAB Strategies Ltd. ("BioAB"), BioDE Ventures Ltd. ("BioDE"), and BioHEP Technologies Ltd. ("BioHEP") to Carrus shareholders of record on April 11, 2014 (the "Share Distribution Record Date"). No action is required by Carrus shareholders in order to receive shares of BioAB, BioDE, and BioHEP. Shareholders entitled to receive shares of BioAB, BioDE, and BioHEP will receive a DRS advice reflecting their ownership, or their brokerage account will be credited with the shares. A bulletin has been issued today from the TSX Venture Exchange with respect to the distribution. The payable date is the same as the Share Distribution Record Date of April 11, 2014.

Pursuant to the Arrangement, shareholders of Carrus will receive 1 BioAB share, 1 BioDE share and 1 BioHEP share (collectively referred to as the "Distributed Shares") for every 5 Carrus Shares they hold as of the Share Distribution Record Date of April 11, 2014.

The redemption price of the Carrus Class A Preferred Shares per share is equal to $5,000/2,845,381 shares and the paid up capital of these Carrus Class A Preferred Shares per share is equal to $5,000/2,845,381 shares. Therefore, every 5 shares of the Carrus Preferred Shares redeemed will result in a distribution of 1 BioAB Share, 1 BioDE Share and 1 BioHEP Share to each shareholder. Thus, the adjusted cost base for the Distributed Shares for each of the subsidiaries will be equal to the total fair value of assets transferred, divided by the total number of Distributed Shares (ie: $5,000/2,845,381 shares). As a result, shareholders receiving the BioAB Shares, BioDE Shares and BioHEP Shares should not experience any capital gain on redemption of the Carrus Class A Preferred Shares. However, shareholders should seek their own professional advice in order to determine the amount of capital gain, if any, they may experience on redemption of the Carrus Class A Preferred Shares.
