Spinnaker Development Corporation Completes Going Private Transaction

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/19/17 -- Spinnaker Development Corporation (the "Company") announced today that it has completed its going private transaction previously announced on April 28, 2017.

The Company has filed articles of amendment effecting a consolidation of its voting common shares on the basis of one voting common share for each 647,000 existing issued voting common shares (the "Consolidation"). The Consolidation has resulted in all of the holders of voting common shares of the Company (except Anodyne Corporation, a company owned and controlled by Mr. Taylor and his family and Spinnaker Resorts Inc., a company owned and controlled by Mr. Taylor and his family (the "Taylor Group")) holding a fractional interest in the post-consolidated voting common shares of the Company.

As fractional shares will not be issued, each holder of voting common shares of the Company, other than Taylor Group, is entitled to receive $2.37 in cash for each pre-consolidated voting common share held immediately prior to the Consolidation in lieu of certificates for fractional post-consolidated voting common shares (with no amount payable to a holder of voting common shares who would be entitled to receive, net of withholding taxes, less than $10).

As a result of the Consolidation, Taylor Group are now the only two shareholders of the Company, holding in the aggregate three (3) voting common shares of the Company.

The Company obtained the required shareholder approvals to effect the Consolidation at the special meeting of shareholders held on May 19, 2017.

In order for former holders of voting common shares to receive the cash amount to be paid to them for their voting common shares, the certificates representing the pre-consolidated voting common shares must be delivered to Capital Transfer Agency Inc. together with a duly completed and signed letter of transmittal (the "Letter of Transmittal") in the form delivered to holders of voting common shares with the notice of meeting and accompanying information circular dated April 3, 2017 of the Company. If a share certificate has been lost or destroyed, the Letter of Transmittal must be completed as fully as possible and forwarded to Capital Transfer Agency Inc. together with an executed affidavit of loss.

There is no settlement date or distribution date on which funds are to be distributed.
