MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 08/15/13 -- Quebecor Inc.
(TSX:QBR.A)(TSX:QBR.B) announced today that it has completed its
previously announced two-for-one stock split of the Corporation's
Class A Multiple Voting Shares and Class B Subordinate Voting Shares.
Each Quebecor shareholder of record on August 14, 2013, received
today one additional share for each share owned. The Class A and
Class B shares will stop trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange on a
due bill basis at the close of business today. Consequently, the
Class A and Class B shares will commence trading on a two-for-one
split basis on the Toronto Stock Exchange at the opening of business
on Friday, August 16, 2013.
Quebecor shareholders do not need to take any action as the
Corporation has recently moved to a simple Direct Registration
System. Quebecor's transfer agent, Canadian Stock Transfer Company
Inc. (CST), will send to Class A and Class B registered shareholders
residing in Canada a statement of Direct Registration System
indicating the number of additional shares that they receive as a
result of the stock split. This will allow shareholders residing in
Canada to hold their additional shares in the book entry form with
CST without having a physical share certificate issued.
