Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

Deal will eventually close.

It’s an election year, the Liberals need to make it look like they’re protecting the middle class Canadian by allowing “extra” time to give this deal their due diligence before reporting their unsurprising recommendations and approval.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

If we’re gonna see another serious offer I’d expect it to be made public by early next week at the latest to give shareholders time to review it before the 23rd. Gosh I love some speculation... Onex has a plan to get a big return on WestJet. Do they slice and dice? I don’t think so and also there’s ...

Re: DOH merge.

If you're part of that 19.5%, yeah it's a great place to be. If I were a holder I'd be trying to dump at $14 and be rid of this toxic equity. But for 80.5% of shareholders this deal has way too much uncertainty and it's not the best offer for the majority.

Re: DOH merge.

Only 19.5% of overall shareholders get the $14 if the outcome of the vote on the 23rd is a no. Everyone else not part of that 19.5%, whether they tried to be or not, is left with whatever the market deems a TRZ share to be worth. It won’t be anywhere near $13-14.

Re: DOH merge.

That value of $14 was established in their original offer, now off the table, to purchase all outstanding shares and take the company private. What guarantee have they provided that once they’ve acquired at least 19.5% at $14 that they will buy out the balance of the shares that they’ve been given v...

Re: DOH merge.

It's the smart move for any Transat investor who wants to get paid. This deal seems off. Mach said they want to secure "at least" 6.9 million shares. If the AC deal is voted down, won't the share price drop back to pre-merger discussion prices? Mach is then holding "at least" 6.9 million shares the...

Re: DOH merge.

Looks like Mach is back and is attempting to gain control of enough shares to vote against the AC deal and then propose a deal of their own. This ain't over yet!

Re: Transat or Sunwing ?

All my own opinion here, but yes it would obviously change the scenario between SWG and TSC. Transat still needs to staff their operation until both operations are merged and that could still be some time from now. I suspect hiring will continue in the short term there. But talk to any AC pilot and ...

Air Transat and Transat brands to be maintained to complement the Air Canada, Air Canada Rouge and Air Canada Vacations brands.
Interesting point there, so the Transat brand will still be around. Does this mean the pilots will be integrated or remain separate as well?

Re: Upgrade Times and current pool of eligible FOs

No, Air Canada would never say such a thing during an interview to a candidate. My guess is that, long-term over the course of a career Air Canada provides the best job opportunity with respect to pay, schedule and pension in Canada. It’s nothing against Sunwing, it’s just that it’s Air Canada and w...

787 pilots, both captain and fo, came from the westjet pilot group and the positions were awarded via seniority. Boeing provided 787 training pilots who flew with the crews and aircraft when it first came online iirc.
