BIOX Corporation Shareholders Approve Previously Announced Plan of Arrangement



September 8, 2017

BIOX Corporation ("BIOX" or the "Corporation") (TSX: BX) announces the results of its special meeting (the "Special Meeting") of holders of the common shares of BIOX (the "Shareholders") held today. At the Special Meeting, Shareholders passed a resolution to approve the Corporation's previously announced arrangement under the Canada Business Corporations Act (the "Arrangement") with FP Resources Limited and CFFI Ventures Inc. (collectively, the "Acquiror Group") and 10293547 Canada Limited (the "Purchaser"), a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of CFFI Ventures Inc. Under the Arrangement, all of the issued and outstanding common shares of BIOX (the "Common Shares") will be acquired by the Purchaser for cash consideration of $1.23 per Common Share (the "Consideration"), other than Common Shares held by the Acquiror Group and certain Shareholders which will be exchanged for common shares of the Purchaser pursuant to the Arrangement.

The required shareholder approval thresholds were met, with the Arrangement being approved by (i) approximately 99.95% of the votes cast by Shareholders present in person or represented by proxy at the Special Meeting, and (ii) approximately 99.89% of the votes cast by Shareholders, other than those votes that were required to be excluded for the purposes of minority approval under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. Approximately 83.87% of the Common Shares were represented in person or by proxy at the Special Meeting.

Completion of the Arrangement is subject to the receipt of a final order of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (the "Court"), which is expected to be sought on September 13, 2017. In addition, certain closing conditions customary in transactions of this nature are required in order for the Arrangement to occur. Provided that approval of the Court is granted and all other closing conditions are satisfied or waived, BIOX expects the Arrangement to be completed later in September 2017 and the Common Shares will be de-listed from the Toronto Stock Exchange thereafter.
