The stage payments, totalling CAD$ 4.3 million, will be deducted from the purchase price of CAD$ 33.5 million upon closing. Martin commented “This agreement marks the successful conclusion of a lengthy process of negotiations with Leben Investment Corporation and the board is pleased with the outcome. The revised closing date of 30 June 2008 allows the Group a period during which it can maximise its return from under-utilised space in the property prior to its sale.”
