GrowthWorks Canadian Fund Ltd. Announces Settlement Agreement with Roseway Capital S.a.r.l

GrowthWorks Canadian Fund Ltd. announced that it has entered into a settlement agreement with Roseway Capital S.a.r.l. and obtained an order of the Court approving the Settlement Agreement. The Settlement Agreement resolves outstanding claims between the Fund and Roseway arising in connection with the participation agreement dated May 28, 2010, as amended, between the Fund and Roseway, the security agreement dated May 28, 2010 between the Fund and Roseway and certain other matters.

Interest will not accrue on the Outstanding Roseway Debt after the date of the Settlement Agreement. With the consent of FTI Consulting Canada Inc., the Court-appointed monitor in the Fund's CCAA proceedings, the Fund will pay the Outstanding Roseway Debt as soon as reasonably practicable, taking into account the Fund's commercially reasonable estimate of the actual and projected liquidity and capital resources and expenditures of the Fund. The Settlement Agreement also entitles Roseway to a fixed percentage of certain future earn-out consideration received by the Fund in connection with the prior sale of the Fund's investment in Cytochroma Canada Inc. That investment was subject to the terms of the Participation Agreement. Effective upon payment of the Outstanding Roseway Debt, the terms of the Security Agreement will be amended to, among other things, restrict the security interest held by Roseway in the Fund's assets to the Roseway OMP Entitlement. Currently, the Security Agreement grants Roseway a general security interest in all of the Fund's assets, subject to certain exceptions.
