As a result of the October 9, 2014 hearing, the Monitor and League will host a conference call for all investors and creditors in the Colwood legal entities.
The call will be held on October 23, 2014, at 2:00 pm. The call will focus on the recent set of transactions that have been set in motion for the LP, and how these transactions will impact all levels of investors and creditors. Details of the Onni Restructuring Agreement are set out in the Monitor’s 23rd Report dated October 6, 2014 which has been posted to this website.
An email containing call in details was sent all investors and creditors of the Colwood legal entities on October 16, 2014 for whom email addresses are held.
Any investors or creditors who have not received an email should contact League via email@example.com to obtain details for the call.
The Monitor recently posted its 24th report to the Court, to this website (under Court Reports). The report provides a general update on the League file and outlines the matters heard by the court at the October 15, 2014 hearing.
Following the October 15, 2014 hearing, the Court granted orders:
Copies of the orders can be found under the Court Orders tab on this website.
The Monitor advises that the action being brought forward by the League Opportunity Fund ("LOF") note holders for an equitable charge was adjourned and will likely be heard in November.
The Supreme Court of British Columbia (the "Court") approved a restructuring agreement between League and Onni Development Capital Corporation ("Onni") that was entered into on October 3, 2014 (the "Onni Restructuring Agreement"). Details of the Onni Restructuring Agreement are set out in the Monitor’s 23rd Report dated October 6, 2014. which has been posted to this website.
In general, the Onni Restructuring Agreement provides for:
The Onni Restructuring Agreement provides additional consideration of $8.9 million (the “Consideration”) which will, after adjustment for costs, be provided to unsecured creditors (approximately $135 million in claims) through a proposal filed pursuant to the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (95%) and to the limited partners (5%) who had invested approximately $15 million in the Colwood Project. As IGW REIT LP is owed approximately $100 million from the Colwood Project, it will receive some of the Consideration provided to the unsecured creditors through the proposal. The additional consideration would not have been available to the unsecured creditors or the unit holders had foreclosure proceedings brought by Epix and the M Notes received approval for the sale of the certain of the lands through a competing offer before the Court. Although the return to the unsecured creditors and the unit holders is small, it is a welcome recovery that was not previously contemplated in the Monitors' Report to Stakeholders dated June 23, 2014. Although it's contemplated that through a successful restructuring of the Colwood property, some funds will flow to IGW REIT LP, however, the recovery to IGW REIT LP will not result in any funds being available to satisfy any equity investor claims of the IGW REIT. The funds received by IGW REIT LP will enhance the recovery for unsecured creditor claims made against IGW REIT LP.
The approval by the Court today is the first of many steps that must be completed before the completion of the transactions outlined in the Onni Restructuring Agreement. It is anticipated that the transactions will be complete by mid December 2014 after which Onni will effectively become the owner of the Colwood City Center project.
Please note that the Monitor's 23rd report posted on October 8 was redacted so that the consideration offered by Onni was not disclosed prior to today's Court hearing. The Monitor's 23rd report, including the consideration offered by Onni, has now been added to the website.
The Monitor advises that its 23rd Report on the Colwood City Centre LP matter, is expected to be posted to this website on October 7, 2014. Other materials concerning this application are now posted under the Motion Materials tab.
The Monitor's 24th report on all matters to be heard at the October 15, 2014 hearing, is expected to be posted to this website on October 9, 2014.
The Monitor advises there are 2 upcoming Court hearings for League matters to be heard: October 9, 2014 and October 15, 2014.
League is currently seeking offers for the purchase of the Colwood City Centre LP, and is expecting to receive offers on October 2, 2014. If an offer is accepted, League will proceed to Court on the October 9th hearing for approval. More information and/or documents will be posted to this website, when they become available.
At the October 15, 2014 hearing, League will be seeking approval for:
We also understand that the League Opportunity Fund ("LOF") note holders' application for an equitable charge over certain League assets will be heard on October 15, 2014. The Monitor has completed an analysis of the impact the proposed equitable charge will have on LOF, and on other League stakeholders if the charge is granted. Our analysis can be found under the tab Creditor and Investor Communications.
