The joint purchasers will acquire Northview’s outstanding units for C$36.25, a 17 per cent premium.

A committee comprised of Northview trustees has fully endorsed the deal.

Mr. Todd Cook, president and CEO of Northview, believes this deal reflects the company’s strong performance over the last few years.
