Sand Technology Inc. Shareholders Approve Plan Of Arrangement With N. Harris Computer Corporation

Stocks in this article: SNDTF

MONTREAL, Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sand Technology Inc. (" Sand") (OTCBB: SNDTF.OB) is pleased to announce that its shareholders have approved the sale of all of the outstanding securities of Sand to N. Harris Computer Corporation (the " Purchaser"), pursuant to a previously-announced plan of arrangement (the " Plan of Arrangement") whereby Sand will be acquired and taken private by the Purchaser and current shareholders of Sand will receive an all-cash consideration for their outstanding common shares of Sand.

Sand's Board of Directors unanimously recommended that the holders of Sand common shares vote in favour of the Plan of Arrangement. The Board of Directors received an opinion from PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP that the consideration to be received by all the shareholders under the Arrangement is fair from a financial point of view.

The Arrangement is a business combination subject to Regulation 61-101 on the "Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions" that is exempt from the formal valuation requirement thereunder given that Sand's common shares are listed on the OTCBB.

A special meeting of shareholders was held on November 13, 2013 (the " Special Meeting"), whereby a special resolution approving the Plan of Arrangement was approved by 99.93% of the votes cast by the common shareholders of Sand, and 99.91% of the votes cast, excluding interested parties, by all shareholders either present in person or represented by proxy at the Special Meeting.

Sand's application to the Quebec Superior Court of Justice to obtain the final court order approving the Arrangement is scheduled for November 14, 2013. Assuming court approval is obtained and that all other conditions to the Arrangement are satisfied or waived, the Arrangement is expected to become effective on or about November 15, 2013.
