JLL Announces Extension of Its Offer to Acquire Patheon and Take Up of Deposited Restricted Voting Shares

NEW YORK, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- JLL Partners, Inc. and its affiliate, JLL Patheon Holdings, LLC (collectively, "JLL"), announced today that as at 6:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on June 1, 2009 (the "Expiry Time") a total of 33,667,752 Restricted Voting Shares in the capital of Patheon Inc. ("Patheon") have been validly deposited to JLL's offer to acquire, at a price of US$2.00 cash per Restricted Voting Share, all of the issued and outstanding Restricted Voting Shares of Patheon (the "Offer"). As all of the conditions of the Offer have been met, JLL has taken up and made payment to the Depository for all of the Restricted Voting Shares validly deposited as of the Expiry Time. Payment will be made on or before Thursday, June 4, 2009 to Patheon shareholders who have validly deposited their Restricted Voting Shares under the Offer since May 19, 2009.

The Restricted Voting Shares taken up since the Offer was launched represent approximately 38% of the outstanding Restricted Voting Shares of Patheon not already owned by JLL or its affiliates and associates. Together with the Restricted Voting Shares owned prior to the Offer, JLL or its affiliates and associates now own 35,317,752 Restricted Voting Shares of Patheon or approximately 39% of the outstanding Restricted Voting Shares of Patheon. JLL also holds 150,000 convertible preferred shares convertible into Restricted Voting Shares representing approximately 29% of the currently issued and outstanding Restricted Voting Shares on an as-converted basis. If JLL were to convert its convertible preferred shares, which it is free to do at any time, it would hold in the aggregate 57% of the total number of Restricted Voting Shares issued and outstanding and would be entitled to vote such securities at any shareholders meeting. JLL will continue to assess whether or not to convert its convertible preferred shares as facts and circumstances develop.

JLL also announced that it has extended the Offer which will now expire ten days from the mailing of a formal notice of extension. JLL expects to mail a formal notice of extension to Patheon shareholders shortly. JLL intends to take up and pay for any further Restricted Voting Shares as and when they are deposited.
