Imvescor Announces Sale Of Imvescor Securities By Fairfax

MONCTON, NB, April 2, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Imvescor Restaurant Group Inc. (" Imvescor" or the " Company") (TSX: IRG) announced today that Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited (" Fairfax") has sold to GMP Securities L.P. (" GMP") all of the 9,897,509 common shares and 16,334,000 warrants of Imvescor it holds, representing 23.6% of the common shares of Imvescor on a non-diluted basis and 45.0% of the common shares of Imvescor on a partially diluted basis. Each warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share of Imvescor at an exercise price of $0.65.

Closing of the sale is expected to occur on or about April 16, 2013. The Company understands that GMP, an investment dealer, intends to resell the common shares and warrants of Imvescor purchased from Fairfax on a private placement basis as part of one or more transactions.

Fairfax had initially made a significant investment in Imvescor in connection with a series of refinancing and recapitalization transactions completed in December 2011. "Fairfax greatly contributed to position the Company for a return to long-term growth and profitability. Even though Imvescor did not represent for Fairfax a significant portfolio investment, its generous advice and support significantly contributed to grow Imvescor into a stronger business with vastly increased expertise" said Denis Richard, President and Chief Executive Officer of Imvescor. "Today's announcement marks the beginning of a new chapter for Imvescor, and we are confident in our ability to take advantage of future opportunities as a widely-held, independent company", added Mr. Richard.

As a result of the sale by Fairfax of all of its common shares and warrants of Imvescor, Fairfax's designees on the Company's Board of Directors, Bradley Martin and Ron D. Barbaro, have resigned their positions, effective as of the closing of the sale. "We wish to sincerely thank Brad and Ron for their contribution to the Board", said Mr. Richard. The Company intends to fill vacancies created by the resignation of Messrs. Martin and Barbaro and appoint a new Chair of the Board of Directors, a position previously held by Mr. Martin, in the near future.
