The completion of the unwind remains subject to obtaining an order from the Ontario Superior Court, consent from Holyrood's lender to the release of its security with respect to the units in Partners LP and the REIT that were issued to Holyrood, consents from the mortgagees of the applicable properties, as well as the satisfaction of other conditions specified in the Rescission Agreement.
