    Air Canada Challenges Onex’s Takeover of Rival WestJet

    (Bloomberg) -- Air Canada is calling on the country’s transportation regulator to take a closer look at Onex Corp.’s takeover of WestJet Airlines Ltd., arguing that the C$3.5 billion ($2.6 billion) deal may run afoul of foreign-ownership rules.“I am writing to express the concern that, due to the structure of the transaction and the capital and corporate governance structure of Onex, the transaction may result in an undertaking that is not ‘Canadian’ within the meaning” of the Canada Transportation Act, Air Canada’s general counsel David Perez wrote in an Aug. 15 letter to the Canadian Transportation Agency. “Onex’s structure also appears to provide insufficient protections to ensure that WestJet continues to be Canadian in the future.”Onex, the Toronto-based buyout firm founded and led by Gerry Schwartz, agreed in May to buy Canada’s second-biggest carrier in a cash deal and take the company private. The acquisition was valued at C$31 a share, or C$5 billion including debt, Toronto-based Onex said at the time. The stock closed Friday at C$30.86 in Toronto.Air Canada’s letter said that WestJet’s purchaser will also have a number of co-investors that may include foreign sovereign wealth funds, foreign airlines and other non-Canadians, and that Onex lacks the necessary internal controls to ensure that Calgary-based WestJet remains Canadian.Foreign ownership rules under Canada’s transportation act require a company to be 51% owned and controlled by Canadians, with no more than 25% voting interest held by any single non-Canadian.“We urge the agency to carefully consider whether the transaction will result in an undertaking that is Canadian and to use its powers to investigate and uphold the Act as necessary,” Air Canada said.The appeal was reported earlier in the Globe and Mail.“Onex is pleased to have received approval from the minister of transport and the Competition Bureau for the WestJet transaction,” the company said in an e-mail. “Onex is engaged with the CTA on the regulatory approval process of our transaction.”WestJet spokeswoman Lauren Stewart said the arrangement is still subject to the receipt of the Canadian Transportation Agency’s review of the ownership structure.“Assuming the timely receipt of this approval, the transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2019,“ Stewart said in an e-mail. “As the deal remains under regulatory review, we will not be providing further comment.(Updates with company comments)To contact the reporter on this story: Doug Alexander in Toronto at dalexander3@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: David Scanlan at dscanlan@bloomberg.net, ;Michael J.

    Air Canada’s Transat Bid Looks Shakier Than Ever to Market

    (Bloomberg) -- After battling a rival bid, Transat A.T. and Air Canada now have one more thing to worry about. The gap between Transat’s share price and Air Canada’s takeover bid is sitting at the widest ever -- indicating investors aren’t confident the deal will get done.Transat’s stock fell as much as 5.9% Tuesday to C$15.03 ($11.33), the biggest drop since early July. That’s nearly C$3 below Air Canada’s offer of C$18 a share or C$720 million, which was raised earlier this month in an attempt to fend off an unsolicited bid from Quebec real-estate developer Group Mach Inc.The tour operator’s shareholders voted 95% in favor of the Air Canada bid last Friday. It’s now subject to other closing conditions, including approval under the Canadian Competition Act, the Canada Transportation Act and European Council regulations.Canada’s transport minister Marc Garneau said Monday that officials need until May to review the proposed acquisition in order to ascertain whether the deal is in the best interest of the public.The competition review is anticipated “to be the most strenuous given the overlap of the companies in Montreal and Quebec markets,” AltaCorp Capital analyst Chris Murray said in a recent note. “The upcoming federal election could also expose the transaction to heightened levels of political discourse, which could make regulators reticent to approve relevant reviews.”However, Murray said he believes the deal will ultimately get the required approvals and will close by 2020.Scotiabank analyst Konark Gupta agreed that the deal will eventually get done but added that the “Competition Act approval could be relatively more tedious compared to other regulatory and government approvals” due to substantial overlap between the two companies in sun destinations and transatlantic markets.(Updates with Tuesday’s share move in second paragraph.)\--With assistance from Divya Balji.To contact the reporter on this story: Kristine Owram in Toronto at kowram@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brad Olesen at bolesen3@bloomberg.net, Divya BaljiFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
