Under the Arrangement, Radiant purchased all of the outstanding common shares of Wheels for CAD$0.77 per share, payable in cash and shares of Radiant common stock. The total equity value of the transaction is approximately CAD$68.9 million, which consists of approximately CAD$33.9 million in cash and CAD$35.0 million in Radiant common stock.
