TransForce Inc. has announced that it intends to change its corporate name from TransForce Inc. to TFI International Inc. to reflect the increased geographic scope of its operations.
A special meeting of TransForce shareholders, to be held in Montreal, Quebec, has been called for December 23, 2016 to consider the change, which must be approved by at least two-thirds of the votes cast by the holders of TransForce’s common shares, either present in person or represented by proxy at the special meeting. A management proxy circular for the special meeting is available and is being mailed to TransForce’s shareholders.
Upon approval, TransForce will file Articles of Amendment to effect the change of name, and expects that its shares will commence trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the new name prior to year-end. TransForce’s stock symbol on the TSX will also change to TFII.
“This change in our corporate identity is in line with the company’s growing operations and footprint in the U.S. where we currently generate approximately 50% of our revenue,” commented Alain Bédard, Chairman, President and CEO.
In October the Company announced that a wholly-owned subsidiary of TransForce had acquired the North American truckload operation of XPO Logistics, Inc. The acquisition, now operating under CFI, represents an important expansion of TransForce’s truckload (TL) and logistics services across North America.
