Imvescor Acquires Commensal's Manufacturing Facility

MONCTON, NB, Nov. 29, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Imvescor Restaurant Group Inc. (" Imvescor" or the " Company") (TSX: IRG) announced today that a wholly owned subsidiary of Imvescor has acquired the manufacturing facility, customer relationships,  the trademark ''Commensal'' as well as all associated retail products marketed under the Commensal brand. The Commensal revenues over the last 12 months were approximately $10.0 million.

The transaction was completed as an asset purchase without assumption of any of the previous owners pre-closing liabilities. The transaction was approved by the court monitoring the insolvency proceedings of Commensal SEC.  The purchase price was approximately $4.2 million. IRG intends to build up Commensal's presence in the retail space, particularly in the fresh soup category, where Commensal occupies 80% of the market in Quebec.

In addition, the facility will allow IRG to over time produce food items for a number of products currently being produced by third parties. The plant will equally begin providing IRG's proprietary food items to all four of its restaurant brands: Bâton Rouge, Scores, Mikes and Pizza Delight.

Denis Richard, IRG's CEO said: "We are extremely excited about this opportunity as it will permit us to vertically integrate our operations under very attractive conditions. We had this objective in sight over the long term but the much lower cost of entry offered by the Commensal opportunity compelled us to accelerate our strategic objectives.

The ability to gain access to manufacturing margins will additionally permit us to service our franchisees with a continued focus on competitive pricing and high quality food items."
