(“Shoreline” or the “Company“) announces that the conditions precedent to completion of the transactions contemplated by the previously announced plan of compromise and arrangement (the “Plan“) proposed by the Company under the Companies Creditors’ Arrangement Act (the “CCAA“) have not been satisfied. As a result, the Company is unable to obtain a sanction order in order to implement the Plan. The current stay of execution pursuant to the CCAA expires on December 24, 2015 and the Company does not intend to seek a further extension.
