NAPEC Inc. Announces Completion of the Arrangement With an Affiliate of Oaktree

DRUMMONDVILLE, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 02/14/18 -- NAPEC Inc. ("NAPEC" or the "Company") (TSX: NPC) announced today the successful completion of the previously announced statutory arrangement under the Canada Business Corporations Act (the "Arrangement") pursuant to which 9370-0219 Quebec Inc. (the "Purchaser"), a company organized by Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. ("Oaktree"), acquired all of the issued and outstanding common shares of NAPEC for $1.95 in cash per share (the "Consideration"). In addition, each warrantholder of the Company will receive a cash payment equal to the amount (if any) by which the Consideration exceeds the exercise price of such warrant.

The Purchaser has delivered to Computershare Trust Company of Canada ("Computershare"), the depositary for the Arrangement, sufficient funds to enable it to make payments to the former shareholders and warrantholders (collectively, the "Securityholders") in accordance with the terms of the Arrangement. Payment to the Securityholders will be made by Computershare as soon as reasonably practicable following the date hereof.

Letters of transmittal have been mailed to registered Securityholders and are also available under the profile of NAPEC at www.sedar.com. The letter of transmittal explains how registered Securityholders can deposit and obtain payment for their securities. Registered Securityholders must return their duly completed letters of transmittal to Computershare in order to receive the consideration to which they are entitled for their securities. Non-registered Securityholders should carefully follow the instructions from the broker, investment dealer, bank, trust company, custodian, nominee or other intermediary that holds securities on their behalf.

As a result of the transaction, it is anticipated that the common shares of the Company will be de-listed from the Toronto Stock Exchange at the end of trading on or about February 16, 2018 and the Company will apply to cease to be a reporting issuer in all the provinces and territories of Canada.

Luc Reny, Chairman of the Board, said "On behalf of all the members of the board of directors of NAPEC, I would like to thank all shareholders for their support over the years and congratulate the management of NAPEC for their exceptional achievement and wish them continued success in the years to come."
