Canadian Utilities Limited Announces Intention to Split Its Shares
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/13 -- Canadian Utilities
Limited (TSX:CU)(TSX:CU.X) announced today that it intends to split
its Class A non-voting shares and Class B common shares on a
two-for-one basis by way of a share dividend in 2013.
Canadian Utilities intends to undertake the share splits because the
market prices for the Class A non-voting shares and the Class B
common shares have significantly increased in past years. The share
splits would be intended to make the Class A non-voting shares and
the Class B common shares more readily accessible to individual share
owners, to increase and broaden Canadian Utilities' share owner base,
and to improve the liquidity of the market for the shares. The share
splits would not change a share owner's proportionate ownership in
ATCO Ltd., which owns 52.9% of Canadian Utilities, also announced
today its intention to split its shares by way of a share dividend in
2013. The share splits of both companies are expected to occur
concurrently at a date to be determined following the Canadian
Utilities and ATCO Ltd. annual meetings, which are scheduled for May
8, 2013 and May 16, 2013, respectively.
Canadian Utilities Limited, an ATCO company, with more than 7,100
employees and assets of approximately $13 billion, delivers service
excellence and innovative business solutions worldwide with leading
