Dominion Water Reserves (DWR) has entered into a letter of intent for the acquisition of an Aquanord subsidiary, 11973002 Canada.

Pursuant to the arm’s length LOI, the company will acquire all issued and outstanding securities of the wholly owned subsidiary. The acquisition will provide Dominion with a 100 per cent interest in a water source located in Saint-Joseph-de-Coleraine, Quebec.

Dominion will also pay an additional aggregate $400,000 in intervals between September and October 2020. This will consist of $150,000 by September 1, $150,000 by September 30, and a final $100,000 by October 30. 

Overall, the company will pay a total $650,000 to shareholders of 11973002 Canada for the acquisition.

Dominion’s Interim CEO, Marie-Claude Bourgie, commented on the company’s acquisition of the Aquanord subsidiary and its water sources.

“Dominion has the platform, relationships, and know-how to develop silicium-based water sources and products that are key to this water specialty market.

“We feel this acquisition will complement Dominion and be a strong addition to our current water initiatives and expansion,” she said.
