Dundee Acquisition Ltd. Shareholders Approve Qualifying Acquisition

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jan. 27, 2017) -

NOT FOR RELEASE IN THE UNITED STATES

Dundee Acquisition Ltd. (TSX:DAQ.A)(TSX:DAQ.WT) ("DAQ"), announced that its shareholders have approved DAQ's previously announced qualifying acquisition under which DAQ proposes to effect a business combination with CHC Student Housing Corp. ("CHC") and acquire a series of additional student housing properties from various third party vendors (the "Arrangement").

11,830,280 shares of DAQ, or 81.16% of the DAQ shares, voted in person or by proxy at the special meeting of shareholders of DAQ held earlier today (the "Meeting"), were voted in favour of the Arrangement. All other matters put to shareholders of DAQ at the Meeting were also approved, details of which are as follows:

Resolutions Number and Percentage of Shares of DAQ Represented in Person or by Proxy and Entitled to Vote at the Meeting that were Voted "FOR" Number and Percentage of Shares of DAQ Represented in Person or by Proxy and Entitled to Vote at the Meeting that were Voted "AGAINST"
Arrangement Resolution 10,591,667 (89.53%) 1,238,613 (10.47%)
DSU Plan Resolution 10,589,667 (89.51%) 1,240,613 (10.49%)
Option Plan Resolution 10,589,667 (89.51%) 1,240,613 (10.49%)

While the Arrangement has been approved by DAQ shareholders, as a result of DAQ's previously announced inability to currently meet the targeted minimum cash amount of $87.3 million in connection with the Arrangement due to higher than expected redemption deposits of Class A Restricted Voting Shares, upon completion of the voting in respect of resolutions to be considered at the Meeting, DAQ adjourned the Meeting until further notice. At this time, by agreement with CHC, DAQ has not scheduled a final order hearing date with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. DAQ currently intends to review its strategic alternatives, including working with CHC. No assurance can be given as to the results of DAQ's strategic review.

Details of the voting results will also be filed under DAQ's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
