Takeover bid for Teknion

Tuesday 25 December 2007

Office Furniture firm Teknion Corp.\'s controlling shareholder makes takeover bid. Toronto Office furniture company Teknion Corp. (TSX:TKN) is welcoming a going-private offer from an affiliate of controlling shareholder A-Tean Holdings Ltd. that values the company at $CAN76 million.

The offer for the remaining 38 per cent of Teknion is $3.15 a share, 120 per cent higher than the 30-day average trading price, Toronto-based Teknion said Monday.

In early trading, Teknion shares were up $1.33, or 76 per cent, at $3.08. On Friday, the firm\'s shares had jumped 30 cents to $1.75 on the Toronto stock market.

A-Tean and its affiliates own about 62 per cent of Teknion. Teknion said certain institutions holding virtually all of the remaining shares have agreed to support the transaction.

A special committee of independent directors of Teknion has received a valuation report and an opinion from TD Securities Inc. that the offer is fair from a financial point of view.

Shareholders will be asked to vote on the offer at a special meeting to be held in the first quarter of 2008, with two-thirds approval required.
