Under the terms of the transaction, MPG shareholders will receive only $3.15 in cash for each share of MPG stock they own. The agreement also provides that MPG preferred shareholders will receive $25.00 in cash for each preferred share the own. Alternatively, MPG preferred shareholders may opt to have their MPG preferred shares converted into new preferred shares. However, if 66.6% or more of the MPG preferred shares are tendered then Brookfield will have the right to convert all remaining MPG preferred shares into $25.00 per preferred share.
