Montréal – The publication of this press release constitutes the method of service authorized by the Tribunal administratif des marchés financiers (the “Tribunal”) of a decision related to the matter of Daniel L’Heureux1 et al. with respect to the heirs of Claude Lemay2 and the directors of Claude Lemay Consultant inc. Claude Lemay, who is deceased, might have taken part in setting up a structure whereby parties could in particular breach freeze and prohibition orders against Daniel L’Heureux and his companies.

See decision No. 2011-031-023 and 2012-045-019 (in French only).

On December 2, 2016, the Tribunal extended for another 120 days the freeze order initially issued on August 4, 2011 and another freeze order initially issued on November 16, 2012 in the matter of Daniel L’Heureux et al. The extension begins on December 20, 2016 and ends on April 18, 2017.

This freeze order extension pertains to the following entities and individuals: Daniel L’Heureux, 9248-8543 Québec inc., Nosfinances.com inc., the estate of Claude Lemay, Claude Lemay Consultant inc., Caisse Desjardins du Grand-Coteau, Caisse Populaire d’Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Bank of Montreal and National Bank of Canada.

On August 2, 2016, the Tribunal partially lifted the freeze order against certain assets to enable the Autorité des marchés financiers to conduct a sale of the assets through a third party and distribute the proceeds to investors defrauded by the respondents.

The Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) is the regulatory and oversight body for Québec’s financial sector.
