ATIS reorients its commercial activities
On February 19, the Atis Group obtained court protection against its creditors under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act, in order to resolve short-term liquidity problems. After careful consideration of all possible alternatives carried out by the management of the Company over the past few months and following consultations with its legal advisors, the Board of Directors of the Company has determined that it is in the interest of the Company and all its stakeholders to initiate a restructuring of its finances and operations under the CCAA. The company would otherwise not have been able to adequately restructure its business.
As a result of this restructuring, the Atis Group announced on February 22 the closure of 19 of its stores in Quebec, as well as the closure of its Terrebonne plant and its head office located in Brossard. The other sites and factories of the Atis Group located in Quebec, Ontario and the Maritimes remain in operation,
