On February 1, 2024, Q4 announced the completion of its previously announced plan of arrangement. Pursuant to the arrangement, an entity controlled by Sumeru Equity Partners acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company for $6.05 in cash per common share. Certain shareholders exchanged their common shares of Q4 for securities of the purchaser in a rollover exchange transaction. As a result of the transaction, Q4 became a private company and the common shares were delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Q4 is a leading capital markets platform that provides a unique opportunity for issuers, investors and the sell-side to interact.

Sumeru Equity Partners Inc. is a private equity firm that is focused on the technology sector.

Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP advised Q4 with a team consisting of James Brown, Emery White, Ben Fickling, Sydney Van Vliet (Corporate), Chad Bayne (Emerging and High Growth Companies), David Davachi and Taylor Cao (Tax), Craig Lockwood, Lauren Harper and Jane Cooke (Litigation).
