Input Capital Corp. Announces Review of Strategic Alternatives to Maximize Shareholder Value
REGINA, Feb. 27, 2019 /CNW/ - Input Capital Corp. ("Input" or the "Company") (TSX Venture: INP) (US: INPCF), the world's first agriculture streaming company, today announced that its Board of Directors has initiated a comprehensive review of strategic alternatives to enhance shareholder value. This review process, which will be conducted with the assistance of financial and legal advisors, will consider the full range of potential strategic alternatives, which includes, but is not limited to business combinations, scalable mortgage debt financing, acquisitions, joint ventures, moving into emerging crops such as cannabis and/or hemp, a go-private transaction, and the potential sale of the company.
The Company has engaged GMP Securities L.P. and Cormark Securities Inc. as financial advisors to assist in the review. There can be no assurances that the exploration of strategic alternatives will result in any transaction. Input does not intend to discuss or disclose developments with respect to the process unless and until otherwise determined that further disclosure is appropriate or required by regulation or law. No formalized timetable has been established for the completion of the strategic review.
Input is an agriculture commodity streaming company with a focus on canola, the largest and most profitable crop in Canadian agriculture. The Company has developed several flexible and competitive forms of financing which help western Canadian canola farmers solve working capital, mortgage finance and canola marketing challenges and improve the financial position of their farms. Under a streaming contract, Input provides capital in exchange for a stream of canola via multi-year fixed-volume canola purchase contracts. To a farmer, Input is like a virtual grain company, buying canola and providing financial solutions. To canola buyers, Input is like a large virtual farm which produces and sells canola over a large geographically diverse footprint, but does not own the land, or equipment or operate the farm. In production terms, Input is the largest canola farm in the world.
Input enters into streaming contracts with canola farmers across western Canada. Input is focused on farmers with quality production profiles, excellent upside yield potential, and strong management teams.
