Our roundup of Canadian small-caps of between $100-million and $2.5-billion in market capitalization making news and on the move today.

Aimia Inc. (AIM-T) announced that the Quebec Superior Court (Civil Division) in the District of Montreal issued a decision in favour of Aimia dismissing the application for injunctive relief filed by Air Canada and Aeroplan Inc.

Aimia said the application related to the proposed combination of its Loyalty Solutions business with a subsidiary of Kognitiv Corp. announced on April 29. "The application alleged that the transaction would breach certain non-competition and confidentiality provisions entered into by Aimia in connection with the sale of Aeroplan in November 2018," the release stated.

"Having received the favourable decision from court, Aimia and Kognitiv closed the transaction today," it stated.

"We are extremely pleased to prevail on the injunction application," stated Aimia interim CEO Phil Mittleman. "With the closing of the transaction with Kognitiv now complete, Aimia is now a minority shareholder in an exciting new business that's expected to accelerate the combined entity's potential growth and path to profitability. We believe the transaction with Kognitiv provides substantial upside potential for stakeholders."
