Mr. Ruparell already beneficially owns and controls 3,922,550 common shares of NGI representing approximately 15% of the issued and outstanding common shares.
Entities controlled by Mr. Ruparell own interests in joint ventures and corporations in which NGI has interests and Mr. Ruparell proposes, at the same time as the purchase of shares of NGI, to acquire certain of the interests of the other parties in such corporations.
The voting support agreements contemplate that the proposed transaction would be implemented through a court-approved Plan of Arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) and would be subject to the approval of NGI common shareholders and preference shareholders, court and regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions.
The Purchaser has advised NGI of the entering into of the voting support agreements and has requested to enter into formal discussions with NGI with respect to the proposed transaction.
