Opta Minerals Mulls Options

Opta Minerals Inc. (TSX:OPM) is evaluating alternatives. The company announced that the Board of Directors has established a special committee of independent directors to conduct a review of strategic alternatives with a view to enhancing value for all shareholders. The committee will review and evaluate all proposals received as part of the strategic review process, and will make recommendations to the Board thereon. Opta Minerals has engaged Houlihan Lokey Capital, Inc. as its financial advisor to assist in the process. Chairman of Board of Opta Minerals, Jeremy Kendall said, “We believe that this is the appropriate time for Opta Minerals to look at alternatives to enhance shareholder value. In the last several years the Company has increased its revenues to close to $150 million and expanded its geographic operating platform. The industrial sectors which they sell into are also growing. A potential sale of the Company or other specific action will further position Opta Minerals for continued growth and achievement of its long-term objectives.” Dave Kruse, President and Chief Executive Officer of Opta Minerals stated, “I believe a change of ownership would be positive for Opta Minerals and its stakeholders and better position the Company for accelerated growth. In the meantime, it is business as usual for our employees, customers and suppliers.”
