“We have appreciated the long term support of Loeb King Capital and its principal Gideon King”,said KWG President Frank Smeenk. “He has believed in our strategy and been with us in the trenches as we navigated the tortuous path to the creation of a new enterprise in Canada. The opportunity for our many smaller shareholders to acquire this equity interest now, at the prices Loeb is prepared to accept, is also welcomed by those of us who will continue. We wish Mr. King well.”
