The following news was written by Giles Gwinnett and first published on the ProActive Investors website.
“Leni Gas Cuba Limited’s (ISDX:CUBA) plans for a Toronto listing moved closer- as its proposed reverse takeover of investment company Knowlton Capital Inc (CVE:KWC) was given a conditional green light by the Toronto venture exchange.
The move is still subject to approval from Leni and Knowlton’s shareholders, and meetings will take place on July 1 and July 6 respectively for this.
LGC will then seek a final order for the scheme of arrangement from the British Virgin Islands High Court on July 7.
If that is approved, Knowlton will announce the date on which Knowlton’s shares will commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the name LGC Capital Ltd.
Leni Gas Cuba said in April: “The proposed takeover by Knowlton of the company, could deliver significant short and long term benefits to LGC shareholders, by providing greater access to the very significant North American capital markets, where there has always be considerable investment interest in Cuba through tourism, business and Government to Government relations.”
