TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- 360 VOX Corporation (TSX VENTURE:VOX) ("360 VOX") and Dundee Corporation (TSX:DC.A) ("Dundee") are pleased to announce that holders of outstanding Class A common shares in the capital of 360 VOX (the "360 VOX Shares" and each holder a "360 VOX Shareholder") have approved the previously announced arrangement transaction pursuant to which Dundee will acquire all of the issued and outstanding 360 VOX Shares that it and its affiliates do not already own (the "Arrangement").
At the special meeting of 360 VOX Shareholders held today (the "Meeting"), more than 99% of the votes cast by 360 VOX Shareholders and by disinterested 360 VOX Shareholders present in person or by proxy were in favour of the special resolution authorizing and approving the Arrangement. As the Arrangement will constitute a "business combination" for the purposes of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions, the implementation of the Arrangement requires approval by at least a majority of the votes cast by disinterested 360 VOX Shareholders, in addition to approval by at least 66 2/3% of the votes cast by 360 VOX Shareholders.
The hearing in respect of the final order of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice approving the Arrangement is currently scheduled to take place on June 27, 2014. Under the Arrangement, each former 360 VOX Shareholder will receive 0.01221 of a Class A subordinate voting share in the capital of Dundee for each 360 VOX Share held. Further details regarding the Arrangement are set out in 360 VOX's notice of special meeting of 360 VOX Shareholders and management proxy circular dated May 26, 2014 (the "Circular") sent to 360 VOX Shareholders in connection with the Meeting, a copy of which is available at www.sedar.com under 360 VOX's profile. The terms and conditions of the Arrangement and the transactions related thereto are set out in the arrangement agreement dated May 12, 2014 between 360 VOX and Dundee (the "Arrangement Agreement"), a copy of which is available at www.sedar.com under 360 VOX's profile and is also attached as Appendix C to the Circular.
Assuming all conditions precedent to the completion of the Arrangement are satisfied or waived, 360 VOX and Dundee expect the Arrangement to be completed on or about July 2, 2014. The 360 VOX Shares are expected to be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") shortly following the completion of the Arrangement. After such delisting, applications will be made for 360 VOX to cease to be a reporting issuer in the applicable jurisdictions.
