Reviewing IGM and Power Corp.'s Financial Mechanisms

Mackenzie Financial is set to significantly amplify its ownership in China Asset Management Co. Ltd. With an ambitious plan to increase its stake to a commanding 27.8%, this initiative will effectively double its existing investment through a C$1.15 billion cash deal, underpinned by its parent organization, IGM Financial, which is poised for additional share procurement.

The remaining acquisition cost will be met with C$575 million in cash from "readily available financial resources". The anticipated transactions are projected to be concluded in the first half of 2022, elevating ChinaAMC's position as a premier asset manager in China and intensifying Mackenzie's partnership with them.
