Canso Investment Counsel Ltd. to Vote Against Proposed Arrangement by Tuckamore Capital Management Inc.

RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 23, 2014) - Canso Investment Counsel Ltd. ("Canso") today informed the Board of Directors of Tuckamore Capital Management Inc. ("Tuckamore") of its intention to vote against the plan of arrangement whereby certain members of Tuckamore management together with certain funds of Birch Hill Equity Partners have offered to acquire all of the shares of Tuckamore for $0.75 per share subject to certain conditions.

Canso, on behalf of certain clients and funds, owns or controls 14.6% (12.5% fully diluted) of the common shares of Tuckamore. Canso believes the $0.75 per share offer price for Tuckamore is inadequate and significantly undervalues the company. Accordingly, Canso intends to vote against the plan of arrangement.

Canso's objective is to maximize the long term value of its holdings in Tuckamore and believes this objective is currently best met by keeping Tuckamore as a public company. Canso will consider all appropriate actions, including among other actions, exercising its rights of dissent as afforded under corporate law.
