In order to comply with regulatory requirements for foreign control of a Canadian airline, Jetlines will establish a dual class share structure of Common Shares and Variable Voting Shares. Common Voting Shares carry one vote per share at meetings of shareholders of Jetlines. The number of votes for each Variable Voting Share is subject to adjustment in the event that foreign voting control limits are exceeded as prescribed by the Canada Transportation Agency. Common Voting Shares may only be owned or controlled by persons who are Canadians and Variable Voting Shares may only be owned or controlled by persons who are not Canadians. As a result Canadian shareholders of GlobalX will receive Common Voting Shares of Jetlines and non-Canadian shareholders of GlobalX will receive Variable Voting Shares of Jetlines. Going forward if additional Jetlines shares are purchased, such shares will be deemed to be automatically converted to Common Voting Shares when held by Canadians and to Variable Voting Shares when held by non-Canadians.
No fractional Jetlines shares will be distributed to the shareholders of GlobalX and, as a result, all fractional amounts arising under the Arrangement will be rounded down to the next whole number without any compensation therefor.
The completion of the Arrangement would not affect in any way the current shareholdings of shareholders in Global Crossing Airlines Group Inc. The completion of the Arrangement and distribution of any securities to shareholders in the new proposed company is subject to a number of conditions including the final approval of the British Columbia Supreme Court. There is no certainty the transaction will be completed on the terms currently proposed or at all and the Board of GlobalX may determine to not proceed with the Arrangement should there be a change in market conditions or investor interest or should another opportunity arise that would similarly enhance value for shareholders.
