Orange Capital Ventures Announces its Intention to Reject Pollard's Offer to Acquire Innova Gaming for C$2.10 per Share

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 10:30:09 EDT

- 9.8% holder believes Pollard's offer is an implied purchase price multiple of 2.5x 2016 pro-forma EBITDA, materially undervaluing Innova

- Pollard's offer inequitably and disproportionately benefits Pollard's shareholders compared to Innova's shareholders. Since the transaction was announced Pollard's market capitalization has increased by 30%, or C$57.5 million

- Encourages Innova's special committee to run a fulsome strategic review process that will ultimately lead to a sale transaction. If a higher offer from a third party emerges, believes the Innova Special Committee should enter into a definitive sale with a customary break fee to mitigate the Amaya Support Agreement; and

- Believes that holders representing more than 28% of Innova's outstanding shares support Orange Capital Ventures' position that the Pollard offer is too low but that a transaction is in the best interest of shareholders.
