Superior Plus to Sell Construction Products Distribution Business for US $325 Million

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jul 5, 2016) - Superior Plus Corp. ("Superior") (TSX:SPB) announced today it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Construction Products Distribution business ("CPD") for total cash consideration of US$325 million (approximately Cdn. $420 million) to Foundation Building Materials, LLC (the "Transaction"). The Transaction is subject to customary purchase price adjustments, closing conditions and the receipt of required regulatory approvals and is expected to close in the second half of 2016. For further information regarding all terms and conditions contained in the definitive agreement, please see Superior's material change report, which will be filed in connection with this Transaction. Completion of the Transaction will allow Superior to reduce debt, increase its financial flexibility and enable Superior to redeploy capital to its Energy Distribution and Specialty Chemicals businesses. The divestiture of CPD simplifies Superior's business model by exiting its most cyclical business. The sale of CPD follows a strategic review process which commenced in early 2014. This review was subsequently terminated as management did not believe that prospective acquirers were offering a value reflective of CPD's core business, attractive free cash flow and sizable growth opportunities. Following the termination of the initial strategic review process, Superior made significant efforts to increase the standalone value of CPD. These efforts included the implementation of a new management team, the initiation of various growth initiatives and the execution of other transformational initiatives including the replacement of two legacy ERP systems with a single, integrated system. Luc Desjardins, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, "We are extremely pleased with the execution of this agreement with Foundation Building Materials. This transaction is transformative for our balance sheet and is the foundation for Evolution 2020 where we will focus on our Energy Distribution and Specialty Chemicals businesses. With a strong balance sheet we will pursue accretive acquisitions, expansions of existing footprints as well as organic growth while maintaining our continuing focus on best in class operations and customer service. Through patient execution of our strategy to create value for our shareholders, we have surfaced an attractive valuation for CPD. This reinforces my belief that we made the right decision in 2014. I would like to thank Mike Farrell, the senior management team, and all the employees of CPD for their dedicated service while part of the Superior Plus family." The proceeds from the sale of the CPD segment will initially be used to repay indebtedness under Superior's credit facility. Assuming the Transaction is completed as anticipated, the proposed reduction of indebtedness under the credit facility is expected to lower Superior's leverage ratio to a range of approximately 2.0 - 2.5X EBITDA (from 3.4X as at March 31, 2016), below the target range of 3.0 - 3.5X EBITDA. The Transaction will also initially result in a reduction of Superior's adjusted operating cash flow ("AOCF") from the date the sale is completed. Superior's current corporate outlook, which does not include any effects of the Transaction, had assumed CPD would contribute AOCF of approximately $0.17 per share for the last six months of 2016. BMO Capital Markets is acting as exclusive financial advisor to Superior and Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP and Norton Rose Fulbright Canada LLP are acting as legal advisors to Superior in relation to the Transaction. About the Corporation Superior consists of three primary operating businesses: Energy Distribution includes the distribution of propane and distillates, and supply portfolio management; Specialty Chemicals includes the manufacture and sale of specialty chemicals; and Construction Products Distribution includes the distribution of specialty construction products. About Foundation Building Materials Foundation Building Materials ("FBM") is a leading North American distributor of building materials focused on meeting and exceeding the needs of local construction trades with best-in-class services. Based in California, FBM has more than 2,000 employees in nearly 100 locations across 18 states.

Superior Plus Announces Canadian Competition Bureau Approval of Proposed Acquisition by Superior of Canexus Corporation ("Canexus")

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jun 28, 2016) - Superior Plus Corp. ("Superior") (TSX:SPB) announced today that the Canadian Competition Bureau approved its proposed acquisition of Canexus (the "Transaction") and issued a no-action letter under the Competition Act. As stated by Luc Desjardins, President and Chief Executive Officer of Superior, "We are pleased with the decision of the Canadian Competition Bureau and its recognition of the very significant efficiencies from the Transaction. Completion of the Transaction would allow us to become more efficient in order to better invest in Canexus' facilities and better serve our customers. We are obviously disappointed with the decision of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (the "FTC") to challenge the Transaction especially given the approval by the Canadian authorities and the significant remedies we offered." The parties have now received approvals for the Transaction from shareholders, the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta, and the Canadian Competition Bureau. As previously announced, the FTC filed an administrative complaint challenging the Transaction. Superior is confident that it has a strong case and remains prepared to present a vigorous defense to the FTC challenge if the parties agree to extend the June 29, 2016 outside date in the Arrangement Agreement. Further information about the Arrangement is set out in Superior's management proxy circular dated February 26, 2016, which is available under Superior's profile on www.sedar.com. About the Corporation Superior consists of three primary operating businesses: Energy Distribution includes the distribution of propane and distillates, and supply portfolio management; Specialty Chemicals includes the manufacture and sale of specialty chemicals; and Construction Products Distribution includes the distribution of specialty construction products.

Superior Plus Announces Update on Discussions with Federal Trade Commission and Canexus

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2016) - Superior Plus Corp. (TSX:SPB) ("Superior") today gave an update on the status of its discussions with the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") in relation to the acquisition (the "Transaction") of the Canexus Corporation ("Canexus"). While the waiting periods under the Competition Act and HSR Act have expired, Superior has not reached agreement with the Federal Trade Commission (the "FTC") on a divestiture package which would address concerns raised by FTC staff and allow the Transaction to close. In order to address such concerns, Superior proposed various remedy packages, including divesting up to an aggregate of 215,000 metric tonnes of sodium chlorate production capacity representing approximately $42 million in annual operating EBITDA and effectively reducing Superior's pro forma market share of U.S. sodium chlorate sales to approximately 35%. Given the extent of the proposed remedies, the anticipated economic benefits of the Transaction, if it did proceed, would be reduced; however, the Transaction would still be accretive to Superior after the realization of expected synergies. Since the waiting period under the applicable U.S. legislation has expired and the FTC has not accepted the divestiture proposals made, Superior expects that the FTC may commence litigation as early as June 24, 2016 to enjoin the Transaction. However, Superior continues to make submissions in support of a negotiated resolution. In anticipation of litigation, Superior was prepared to continue efforts to complete the Transaction on the existing terms and requested that Canexus extend the Outside Date under the Arrangement Agreement entered into by Superior and Canexus in order to provide sufficient time for the parties to respond to any legal proceedings commenced by the FTC and to resolve the matter by litigating in the U.S. based on the strength of the remedies proposed. Superior is confident that it has a strong case and remains prepared to present a vigorous defense to any challenge to the Transaction by the FTC. As of the date hereof, the parties have not agreed to extend the Outside Date but extension discussions are ongoing. If the Outside Date has not been extended on or before June 29, 2016 (assuming the Transaction has not closed by such time), either party will be entitled to terminate the Arrangement Agreement. Further information about the Arrangement is set out in Superior's management proxy circular dated February 26, 2016, which is available under Superior's profile on www.sedar.com. About the Corporation Superior consists of three primary operating businesses: Energy Distribution includes the distribution of propane and distillates, and supply portfolio management; Specialty Chemicals includes the manufacture and sale of specialty chemicals; and Construction Products Distribution includes the distribution of specialty construction products.
