Cargojet Receives Final Court Approval to Increase Permitted Foreign Ownership Levels to the Levels Permitted under Canada Transportation Act

MISSISSAUGA, ON , April 1, 2020 /CNW/ - Cargojet Inc. ("Cargojet" or the "Corporation") (CJT.TO) is pleased to announce that the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) issued earlier today a final order approving the previously announced plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act ( Ontario ) effecting amendments to Cargojet's articles of incorporation to align the permitted level of non-Canadian ownership and control of its voting shares within its articles with those prescribed by the new definition of "Canadian" under the Canada Transportation Act ("CTA") as amended in June 2018 .

Prior to the CTA amendments, no more than 25% of the voting interests of a Canadian air carrier could be owned or controlled by non-Canadians. The Government of Canada's stated purpose in implementing the CTA amendments is to attract more foreign investment and encourage growth in the aviation sector by increasing, from 25% to 49%, the permitted level of foreign ownership of Canadian air carriers. At the same time, the CTA amendments introduced two new limitations on voting ownership and control, by capping the voting rights of single non-Canadians and of the aggregate of non-Canadian air carriers at 25%.

Cargojet expects that its amended articles will be filed and become effective on or about April 3, 2020 . Further details regarding the amendments are set out in the management information circular of Cargojet dated February 26, 2020 and in Cargojet's news release of the same date which are available on SEDAR under Cargojet's profile at www.sedar.com.

Cargojet is Canada's leading provider of time sensitive premium overnight air cargo services and carries over 8,000,000 pounds of cargo weekly. Cargojet operates its network across North America each business night serving 15 major cities, and selected international destinations. Cargojet owns a fleet of 26 aircraft.
