For immediate release
50 Companies Express Interest In Request For Proposals
Development and Technology
“I am extremely pleased, but not surprised, at the level of interest we have seen already,” said Development and Technology Minister Mike Currie. “Our intent is to sell the assets of the company in a way that best benefits the lobster industry, the workers and the taxpayers of the province. I am confident, from this level of interest, that we will be able to succeed on both counts.”
Interested parties have until March 12 to respond to both RFPs. Further RFPs may be issued for other assets at a later date.
