DUNDEE ACQUISITION
TM
MERGER CONSIDERATIONS
OVERVIEW
Dundee Acquisition Ltd. is
a public Special Purpose
Acquisition Company (“SPAC”)
that raised over C$100 million
at the time of its April 2015
Initial Public Offering (“IPO”)
for the purpose of effecting
a business combination with
a privately-held operating
business.
As the sponsor of Dundee
Acquisition, Dundee
Corporation, an independent
Canadian holding company
with over $6 billion of AUA,
is bringing more than 20 years
of private and public market
investment experience and
significant contacts within the
Canadian and global business
community to assist Dundee
Acquisition.
At Dundee, we have always
taken pride in our rich history
as a builder of successful
companies. We are a “business
family” that has supported
early stage enterprises
from incubation through to
construction and operation.
As a strong supporter of family
managed businesses, we intend
to be a long-term supporter of
Dundee Acquisition’s business
combination partner.
WHAT IS A SPAC?
A SPAC is a publicly traded corporation that has no operating business
and uses the money raised from the sale of equity in its IPO to finance
an acquisition/merger of an private company within a defined time period.
The private company, merged with the SPAC, will become publicly listed
with the SPAC’s established public investor base and the ongoing benefits
of being publicly traded including increased access to capital and a currency
for acquisitions and management incentive programs.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF SELLING TO A SPAC FOR A BUSINESS OWNER?
Dundee Acquisition offers a compelling alternative for the owner of a highly successful
private company when compared to his or her typical options. A Dundee Acquisition
merger has several advantages for a business owner compared to an IPO or a sale to
a Private Equity Firm.

IN WHAT SITUATIONS CAN DUNDEE ACQUISITION BE HELPFUL?
Dundee Acquisition’s management team has a well known history of working
to maximize long-term value in complex going-public transactions. As a family
managed business, the questions/concerns with generational transfers and
transitions in ownership to management teams is a well worn path for our senior
executives. We have a track record of success with our divisional going-public
transactions and an operators’ appreciation of the impact a major ownership
transition has on your day-to-day business (employees and customers).
