TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2023 /CNW/ – Mimi’s Rock Corp. (TSXV: MIMI) (“MRC” or the “Corporation“) is pleased to announce the successful completion of its previously-announced statutory plan of arrangement under the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the “Arrangement“) involving FitLife Brands, Inc. (“Parent“) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, 1000374984 Ontario Inc. (the “Purchaser” and, together with the Parent, the “FitLife“).
Pursuant to the Arrangement, among other things, the Purchaser acquired all of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Corporation (the “Common Shares“). The Arrangement became effective at 12:01 a.m. (Toronto time) on February 28, 2023 (the “Effective Time“), resulting in MRC becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Purchaser.
Dayton Judd, CEO of FitLife commented, “We are excited to welcome Mimi’s Rock to the FitLife family. We look forward to working closely with the talented team at Mimi’s Rock to help drive further growth and profitability for their brands.”
Under the terms of the Arrangement, each former shareholder of MRC is entitled to receive a cash consideration of $0.17 per Common Share (the “Cash Consideration“). Further, under the Arrangement, all options to acquire Common Shares outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time have been accelerated and cancelled in accordance with their terms.
In order to receive the Cash Consideration in exchange for their Common Shares, registered shareholders are reminded that they must complete, sign and return the letter of transmittal to TSX Trust Company, in its capacity as depositary under the Arrangement, together with their certificate(s) or DRS advice(s) representing their Common Shares, in accordance with the tender procedures described in the Circular (as defined below). Any Common Shares held in the CDSX system were automatically deposited under the Arrangement and the beneficial shareholders thereof will receive the Cash Consideration in respect of such Common Shares.
