Héroux-Devtek announces shareholder approval of proposed capital reduction 
and repayment 
LONGUEUIL, QC, Dec. 18, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Héroux-Devtek Inc. (TSX: HRX) 
("Héroux-Devtek" or the "Corporation"), a leading Canadian manufacturer of 
aerospace products, is pleased to announce that its shareholders voted in 
favour of a special resolution to reduce the amount of the Corporation's 
issued share capital by $2.70 per share and repay such amount on December 19, 
2012 to shareholders of record on November 20, 2012. This approval was 
obtained at a special shareholder meeting held earlier today in Montréal, 
Québec. 98.83% of the proxies received by the Corporation were voted in 
favour of the capital reduction and repayment. 
Therefore, the previously announced special cash distribution of $5.00 per 
share ($157,494,525) will be composed of a capital reduction and repayment of 
$2.70 per share ($85,047,044) and a special cash dividend of $2.30 per share 
($72,447,481). As a result, a shareholder will, under certain circumstances, 
not be subject to tax on the amount of the capital reduction and repayment or, 
at the very least, be able to treat the amount of the capital reduction and 
repayment that is in excess of the shareholder's cost base in the shares as a 
capital gain. 
The shares will commence trading on an ex-distribution basis (i.e. without an 
attached "due bill" entitlement to the special distribution) from the opening 
of trading on December 20, 2012, the first trading day following the payment 
date. Investors who enter into trades to purchase shares on or after December 
20, 2012 will not be entitled to the special distribution. The due bills will 
be redeemed on December 24, 2012 once all the trades with attached due bills 
entered into up to and including December 19, 2012 have settled.
