"We are very encouraged to see that the majority of Canada Southern shareholders have recognized the value and certainty of the Canadian Oil Sands offer and have tendered their shares to it," said Richard McGinity, Chairman of the Canada Southern Board. "The Canada Southern Board strongly recommends that those shareholders who have not already tendered to the Canadian Oil Sands offer do so before the subsequent offering period expires on September 6th."
Canadian Superior's 'Participating Consideration' No Longer Available
The Canada Southern Board also notes that, based on the conditions set forth in Canadian Superior Energy Inc.'s ("Canadian Superior") amended offer dated August 9th, 2006, with Canadian Oil Sands exceeding its minimum tender condition of 50.01%, Canadian Superior is no longer offering the so-called "Participating Consideration" of 2 common shares of Canadian Superior, plus Cdn$2.50 cash, plus one "Special Exchangeable Share" for each Canada Southern share.
The only consideration Canadian Superior is now offering is the so-called "Original Consideration" of 2.75 common shares of Canadian Superior plus Cdn $2.50 cash for each Canada Southern share, which, as of the close of the market Friday, August 18th, was valued at only US$7.97.
If shareholders have already tendered to the current Canadian Superior offer, the Board recommends that shareholders withdraw them immediately. For assistance in doing so, shareholders are urged to contact The Proxy Advisory Group at toll free 1-866-678-1770.
