ACE Aviation, Air Canada Parent, May Use Stock Swap to Dissolve
ACE Aviation Holdings Inc. (ACE/H), the parent of Air Canada (AC/A) that's planning to dissolve, may wind up the company with a stock swap rather than doing a cash purchase of the 25 percent of the airline it doesn't own.
``A buyout of the minority shareholding for cash is less likely at this time,'' Chief Financial Officer Brian Dunne said today on a conference call with analysts. ``We've come to the view that perhaps a share exchange might be more appropriate,'' he said, without elaborating on how that would be done.
