ADF Group Inc. obtains its certification from the AMF under the new Bill 1 on
the integrity in public contracts
TERREBONNE, QC, March 13, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - ADF GROUP INC. ("ADF" or the
"Corporation") (TSX: DRX) announces that it has received from the "Autorité
des Marchés Financiers" ("AMF") the authorization now required under the new
provincial Bill 1 on the integrity in public contracts. This new authorization
is mandatory for all corporations that wish to work on any public construction
or services contract exceeding $40 million. The authorization is valid for a
three-year period and is subject to certain conditions.
Jean-Francois Boursier, Chief Financial Officer, said that ADF is proud to be
one of the first companies to obtain this new certification. He also pointed
out that this authorization represents another important step toward the award
of the contract for the fabrication of the steel structure of the new Quebec
City amphitheatre. At the close of the bidding process, last February 6, ADF
was designated as the lowest bidder for this construction project, although
certain other conditions needed to be met, including the issuance of the
authorization by the AMF. Now that this condition has been fulfilled, the
Corporation can look forward to finalizing the discussions with City officials
and being officially awarded the fabrication contract within the next few days.
