|Overview of Sales Process|
An opportunity exists to acquire the Assets and ongoing operations of the JMX Group.
In April 2020, the JMX Group filed Notices of Intention to make proposals under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act, which proceedings were converted into proceedings under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (the “CCAA Proceedings”) and Crowe Soberman Inc. was appointed as monitor in the CCAA Proceedings (the “Monitor”).
The Monitor is conducting a marketing and sale process for the JMX Group’s Assets on an “as-is”, “where-is” basis (“Sale Process”), which was approved by the Court on September 29, 2020 (“Sale Process Order”). The Sale Process terms and conditions, including bid deadlines and minimum requirements, is attached hereto as Schedule “A”.
As approved by the Sale Process Order, the Company has entered into a Stalking Horse Asset Purchase Agreement with a company owned by two of the JMX Group shareholders (the “Stalking Horse Purchaser”), dated September 29, 2020, pursuant to which the Stalking Horse Purchaser has agreed to acquire substantially all of the Assets and to assume certain of the liabilities of the Company (the “Stalking Horse Agreement”). Such liabilities include trade payables, equipment leases and secured operating debt.
The objective of the Sale Process is to obtain offers to effect a sale of the Company’s business and the Assets on a going concern basis for an amount and/or on terms which are superior to the transaction contemplated by the Stalking Horse Agreement.
