On September 27, 2016, I blogged about the decision of the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench blocking approval of an arrangement in Re Marquee Energy Ltd,. and the Alberta Oilsands Inc. In that decision, the Court held that Alberta Oilsands shareholders must be allowed a shareholders vote even though the only company being “arranged” was Marquee Energy Ltd. The appeal of this order was heard on November 9 and on November 14, the Alberta Court of Appeal allowed the appeal, with reasons to follow. I will blog further once the reasons for judgment are released.
