Court approves TELUS acquisition of Mobilicity

VANCOUVER, May 28, 2013 /CNW/ - TELUS welcomes today's approval of its 
acquisition of Mobilicity by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. 
"Following on last week's vote in favour of the proposal by Mobilicity's 
debtholders, today's court decision takes us another important step closer to 
completing this acquisition, which will allow TELUS to save the jobs of 
Mobilicity's 150 employees and continue service for their 250,000 customers 
without the disruption that company's current financial issues could cause," 
said David Fuller, TELUS Chief Marketing Officer. 
TELUS and Mobilicity announced May 16 that TELUS had agreed to acquire the 
company for $380 million, subject to approval from the company's debtholders, 
the court, the Competition Bureau, and Industry Canada. On May 23 Mobilicity 
announced its debtholders voted in favour of the transaction. Today, the 
Ontario Superior Court of Justice found the proposed acquisition can proceed 
under the Canadian Business Corporations Act. 
TELUS and Mobilicity are seeking expeditious regulatory review due to the 
challenging financial circumstances Mobilicity is facing.
