Tilting Capital Corp. Announces Update to Structure of Transaction with ArcScan, Inc.

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Aug. 24, 2015) -


Tilting Capital Corp. (the "Corporation" or "Tilting") (NEX:TLL.H) is pleased to announce an update to its proposed business combination (the "Transaction") with ArcScan, Inc. ("ArcScan"), pursuant to which the Corporation will acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock (the "ArcScan Common Shares") and shares of preferred stock (the "ArcScan Preferred Shares") of ArcScan, as press released by Tilting on July 2, 2015 (the "July Press Release").

On August 19, 2015, the Corporation entered into an amended and restated definitive agreement (the "Amended Definitive Agreement") with ArcScan. The Amended Definitive Agreement has been entered into to reflect, among other things, certain agreed modifications to the structure of the Transaction that will result in the Corporation remaining a Canadian company and prevent it from being deemed to be a domestic issuer under applicable United States securities laws at the close of the Transaction. These modifications include the following:

  • The Transaction no longer provides for the continuance of Tilting into the State of Delaware. Upon closing of the Transaction, Tilting will continue to exist under the Canada Business Corporations Act, and ArcScan will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tilting.

  • Specified stockholders of ArcScan who are insiders of ArcScan and resident in the United States will receive Class A convertible restricted voting shares of Tilting (the "Tilting Restricted Voting Shares") in exchange for the ArcScan Common Shares and/or ArcScan Preferred Shares held by such insiders on a one-for-one basis. Holders of Tilting Restricted Voting Shares will be entitled to attend all meetings of shareholders of Tilting and vote on all matters other than the election of directors. The Tilting Restricted Voting Shares will be convertible into common shares of Tilting (the "Tilting Common Shares") on a one-for-one basis at the option of the holder or Tilting.

  • Stockholders of ArcScan (other than the specified insiders and non-accredited investors of ArcScan) will receive Tilting Common Shares in exchange for the ArcScan Common Shares and/or ArcScan Preferred Shares held by them on a one-for-one basis.

  • Upon closing of the Transaction, the size of the board of the directors of Tilting will be increased from the five members disclosed in the July Press Release to six members, with the addition of Peter Ballachey, the Chief Financial Officer of ArcScan, to the anticipated board of directors upon closing.

Tilting has scheduled a special meeting of shareholders for September 25, 2015 where the shareholders of Titling will be asked, among other things, to approve the amendment of the Articles of the Corporation to create the Tilting Restricted Voting Shares and to amend the terms of the Tilting Common Shares and preferred shares and to approve new by-laws of the Corporation that include advance notice provisions. Additional details with respect to the creation of Tilting Restricted Voting Shares, the amendments to the terms of Tilting Common Shares and preferred shares, the new by-laws and the other matters to be brought before shareholders at the special meeting will be described in the management information circular to be prepared in connection with the meeting.

For additional information with respect to the Transaction, ArcScan and the anticipated management and board of the directors of the Resulting Issuer (including the biography of Peter Ballachey) please refer to the July Press Release.

Trading in the Tilting Shares on the TSXV is halted and may remain so until completion of the Transaction.
