Canada's Sleeman Breweries has said that it has successfully acquired control of Unibroue.

In a statement Sleeman said that 100% of the outstanding multiple voting shares (MVS) and 91.2% of the outstanding subordinate voting shares (SVS), have been deposited to the C$5.25 cash recommended takeover offers made by Sleeman.

With this level of deposit, all conditions to the Offer are now satisfied.

Sleeman now intends to exercise its statutory right to acquire the remaining SVS not deposited under the offer.

Following acquisition of all of the remaining SVS, Sleeman intends to delist the SVS from the Toronto Stock Exchange.
