Northview units closed at $32.50 on the Toronto Stock Exchange on Wednesday.

The deal, which has the unanimous support of the Northview board, requires approval by Northview unitholders. It includes an initial 30-day go-shop period that will run to March 20 that will allow Northview to solicit and evaluate alternative offers.

The transaction is expected to close during the third quarter of 2020.
