KIRKLAND, QC, Jan. 11, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Manitex Capital Inc. ("Manitex") is pleased to announce that its board of directors has declared a special dividend-in-kind (the "Dividend") of 1,256,127 common shares of Valeo Pharma Inc., ("Valeo") held by Manitex. The Dividend has a deemed price of $0.40 per Valeo Share and is payable on, or about, February 1, 2019 to holders of record of common shares of Manitex ("Manitex Shares") at the close of business on January 22, 2019 (the "Record Date").

The Dividend will be distributed on a pro rata basis. Based upon the number of Manitex Shares currently outstanding, and ignoring the effect of rounding for fractional interests, one Valeo Share will be paid under the Dividend for every ten Manitex Shares (or 0.1 Valeo Share per Manitex Share) held on the Record Date.

The distribution of the Valeo Shares forming the Dividend is exempt from the prospectus requirement pursuant to Regulation 45-106. After distribution of the Dividend, Manitex will continue to hold 20,138,908 Valeo Shares.

The Dividend is an "eligible dividend" for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and corresponding provincial legislation and therefore the dividend will be taxable in the hands of Manitex shareholders. Manitex shareholders with questions regarding the tax treatment of dividends should consult with their own tax advisors or contact their local office of the Canada Revenue Agency and, where applicable, the provincial taxation authorities.
