The Reactivation Transaction is conditional upon, among other things, receiving all necessary regulatory and third party approvals and authorizations, the receipt of an independent valuation of the LaSalle Property and the Securities Portfolio, approval by the shareholders of NorRock, confirmation of no material adverse change having occurred to the LaSalle Property and the Securities Portfolio prior to close, the completion of definitive agreements setting forth the terms and conditions for the closing of the LaSalle Acquisition and the Portfolio Acquisition, the completion of due diligence satisfactory to each party, and the completion of a sponsorship report satisfactory to the Exchange (or waiver by the Exchange of that requirement).
NorRock intends to complete a brokered private placement to raise up to $1,000,000 (the "Concurrent Financing") concurrently with its Reactivation Transaction by issuing up to 4,000,000 Class A shares at $0.25 per share. Proceeds raised will be used for general working capital purposes.
NorRock is currently confirming the terms of a sponsorship relationship for this transaction with an Exchange member firm, which will be disclosed as soon as an engagement is formalized.
Post-closing of the Reactivation Transaction and the Concurrent Financing, NorRock will have approximately 57.4 million Class A Shares issued and outstanding. It is anticipated that Green Tree will own, directly or indirectly, approximately 2% of the issued and outstanding voting securities; the other current shareholders of NorRock will collectively own approximately 7% of the issued and outstanding voting securities; the subscribers on the Concurrent Financing will collectively own approximately 7% of the issued and outstanding voting securities; and the sellers on the Reactivation Transaction will collectively own, directly or indirectly, approximately 84% of the issued and outstanding voting securities, of which IGW Seg Debt 1 and IGW Seg Debt 2 will distribute approximately 25.3 million Class A Shares (being approximately 44% of the issued and outstanding voting securities) to their unit holders, while IGW Industrial will own, directly or indirectly, approximately 23.2 million Class A Shares, being approximately 40% of the issued and outstanding voting securities of NorRock. As such, IGW Industrial will be an "insider" of NorRock for purposes of applicable securities laws.
