Company Allowed Direct Ownership and Control of GM Canada Dealerships, Assumes Control of Five Stores

EDMONTON, Dec. 7, 2017 /CNW/ - AutoCanada Inc. (TSX: ACQ) (or the "Company") today announced two new agreements that will strengthen its relationship with GM Canada. The Company has executed a Public Company Master Agreement (PCMA) with GM Canada that permits AutoCanada's direct ownership and control of GM Canada dealerships. It has also reached an agreement with CanadaOne Auto Group, a company controlled by the Company's former CEO and founder, Mr. Patrick Priestner, that will see AutoCanada assume control of five of the nine GM Canada dealerships where it held a majority equity stake with no voting rights, and CanadaOne Auto Group buying AutoCanada's interest in four dealerships.

AutoCanada Inc. (CNW Group/AutoCanada Inc.)

Under the newly negotiated agreements, five dealerships will become majority owned and controlled by AutoCanada and the remaining four by CanadaOne Auto Group (ownership by entity post-closing is presented below). Under the terms of the PCMA, each General Manager in an AutoCanada/GM Canada dealership will be required to own a minority equity position in their dealership.
