Calgary, Alberta – Brookfield Residential Properties Inc. (the “Company” or “Brookfield Residential”) (BRP: NYSE/TSX) announced today that the Company, 1927726 Ontario Inc. and Brookfield Asset Management Inc. have filed an amendment to their previously filed Rule 13e-3 transaction statement on Schedule 13E-3 (the “Schedule 13E-3”) originally filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on January 13, 2015. The amendment to the Schedule 13E-3 is available on the Company’s website at www.brookfieldrp.com as well as under its profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and EDGAR at www.sec.gov. The amendment revises the Schedule 13E-3 to address certain comments to the Schedule 13E-3 and the Circular received from the Staff of the SEC.
The SEC requested that the Company amend its Schedule 13E-3 and provide certain additional disclosure to shareholders regarding the plan of arrangement, pursuant to which 1927726 Ontario Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Brookfield Asset Management Inc., will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Brookfield Residential (“Common Shares”) that Brookfield Asset Management Inc. and its affiliates do not already own, for cash consideration of US$24.25 per Common Share by way of a plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement”). In addition, the ability to exercise the Repurchase Election has been extended to non-Resident Shareholders, and such Shareholders should review the updated disclosure in the amendment to Schedule 13E-3 for further information. Shareholders wishing to make such election should consult their own advisors to determine if making such election is appropriate in the particular circumstances. No other changes have been made to the terms or conditions of the Arrangement and the consideration and the date of the shareholders’ meeting are unchanged.
Shareholders who have already submitted a form of proxy or voting instruction form and do not wish to change their vote need not take any further action and shareholders continue to have the right to revoke or change their proxies prior to the commencement of the shareholders’ meeting.
This press release is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell securities.
