“Quantemplate is giving us a way to quickly disseminate data to people across the organization who needed it,” said David Finocchiaro, director of financial analysis at SageSure. “Previously, our reporting team would have to manually gather data and generate individual reports to address department requests, but with Quantemplate, we’re able to quickly give those people access to the data that they need in order to make more informed decisions.”

Calian Adopts Shareholder Rights Plan

GlobeNewswire

Published

Reading Time: 4 minutes

OTTAWA, Dec. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Calian Group Ltd. (TSX: CGY) today announced that it has adopted the 2020 Shareholder Rights Plan (the “Rights Plan”).  The Company’s prior 2010 Shareholder Rights Plan expired in 2019.  

The Rights Plan, which is effective immediately but is subject to shareholder approval, will help to better ensure that all shareholders are treated fairly and receive equal treatment in the face of an unsolicited take-over bid for the Company.  Shareholders will be asked to confirm the Rights Plan at the Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders to be held on February 6, 2020 and the Rights Plan will need to be reconfirmed by shareholders every three years after that. If this confirmation is not received, the Rights Plan will terminate. 

At the close of business today, one right will be issued and attached to each common share of the Company outstanding at such time and a right will also automatically attach to each common share issued hereafter for as long as the Rights Plan remains in effect. The rights will automatically attach to the common shares and no further action will be required by shareholders.

The rights issued under the Rights Plan become exercisable only when a person, including any party related to it or acting jointly with it, acquires or announces its intention to acquire 20% or more of the Company’s outstanding common shares without complying with the ‘Permitted Bid’ provisions of the Rights Plan. Subject to certain conditions set out in the Rights Plan, should such an acquisition occur, each right would, upon exercise, entitle a rights holder, other than the acquiring person and related persons, to purchase common shares of the Company at a substantial discount to the market price at the time. Certain holdings of common shares, such as positions held by investment managers, trust companies for managed accounts and pension plans will not trigger the Rights Plan unless the holders are participating in making a take-over bid for the Company. Under the Rights Plan, a Permitted Bid is a bid made to all shareholders that is open for not less than 105 days and satisfies certain other conditions set out in the Rights Plan.

The 2020 Shareholder Rights Plan was not adopted in response to, or in anticipation of, any specific effort to acquire control of the Company and the Company is not aware of any such pending or contemplated proposals.   The 2020 Shareholder Rights Plan is not aimed at blocking bids, but is designed to ensure that all shareholders are treated fairly and equally and to allow the Company an ability to properly evaluate any offer and maximize value for shareholders.

The form of Rights Plan adopted by the Company is consistent with the current practice and the forms of shareholder right plans adopted by other Canadian public companies. The Rights Plan has been conditionally approved by the Toronto Stock Exchange subject to ratification by shareholders as described above and certain other customary conditions.

A complete copy of the Rights Plan will be filed with Canadian Securities Administrators and will be available at www.sedar.com.
