Look Communications announces formation of a special committee to monitor UBS sale process07:30 EST Tuesday, November 27, 2012TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - Look Communications Inc. ("Look") (NEX:LOK.H and LOK.K) announced today that the board of directors of Look has formed a special committee to monitor the sale process being undertaken by Unique Broadband Systems, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary (collectively, "UBS").  Look understands that, pursuant to a court order issued on November 9, 2012, Duff & Phelps Canada Restructuring Inc., in its capacity as the monitor of the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA") proceedings with respect to UBS, has been authorized to conduct a sale process (the "Sale Process") for UBS's 39.2% economic interest and 37.6% voting interest in Look.The special committee is comprised of two members of the board of Look who are independent of UBS and have no interest or potential interest in the Sale Process (other than in their capacity as fiduciaries of Look).  Whereas Look has perceived its interests as aligned on most matters with UBS, it is recognized that the Sale Process now undertaken by UBS could potentially result in a divergence of those interests.  The purpose of the committee is to monitor the Sale Process and ensure that the interests of Look and its non-UBS shareholders are taken into account, protected and advanced in and by that process.  The committee's mandate includes the power to take any steps on behalf of Look that the committee deems appropriate to protect the interests of Look and its shareholders (taken as a whole).About Look Communications Inc.Look's shares are listed on the NEX under the symbols "LOK.H" for Multiple Voting Shares and "LOK.K" for Subordinate Voting Shares.
