* Ex-Dividend Date is the date on which the shares start trading without the subsequent distribution value, therefore only shares acquired before August 1 (a holiday) will entitle the shareholder to participate in the distribution.

The distribution will be of a total of approximately C$68.2 million, comprised of a return of capital of approximately C$28 million and dividends of approximately C$40.2 million. The shareholders will receive C$0.41 per each SVS held, being $0.215 in connection with the return of capital, and $0.195 in connection with the dividend payment and CAD$410 per each MVS held, being $56.00 in connection with the return of ‎capital, and $354.00 in connection with the dividend payment‎.

The Distribution follows the sale of substantially all of the assets and properties ‎used in the company’s former business to Altria Client Services, for a total purchase price of US$100.5 million. The company no longer has any material property or ‎assets ‎other than cash-on-hand plus the cash proceeds of the transaction, approximately C$69.2 million.  After the distribution, IDLE expects to retain approximately C$1 million in cash to explore ‎new business opportunities for the benefit of its shareholders.
