PRESS RELEASE

South East Construction Completes Acquisition of Tundra Mechanical and Millwrighting Ltd.

CALGARY, Jan. 10, 2017 /CNW/ – Mosaic Capital Corporation (“Mosaic”) (TSX-V Symbols: M, M.PR.A and M.DB) is pleased to announce that Secon Holdings LP (“Secon”), a 75% subsidiary of Mosaic, has successfully completed the acquisition of a 70% interest in the business being carried on by Tundra Mechanical and Millwrighting Ltd. (“Tundra”). Established in 1988, Tundra provides mechanical and millwrighting services to a broad range of industries, including water treatment, waste management and agriculture. Representative customer segments have included feed mills, process mills and seed cleaning and storage companies. While Tundra performs complimentary and similar services to Secon, this acquisition will allow Secon to access a different segment of the growing Saskatchewan market. The acquisition was funded through a combination of cash and a vendor note and was at the low end of Mosaic’s usual valuation range.

Established in 1989 in Saskatchewan, Secon is a multi-trade industrial and commercial construction company, primarily servicing the potash mining and milling industry in all phases of underground and surface construction and maintenance. Secon has also worked on construction and infrastructure projects related to power generation, coal mining and crushing, fertilizer production and oilseed crushing.

Harold Kunik, President of Mosaic, commented “We are excited about the partnership between Secon and Tundra. With access to Secon’s strong marketing team and customer base, we are certain Tundra will continue to grow in the western Canada market.”
