Kitikmeot Corporation Assumes 100% Ownership of Kitnuna Following the Purchase of Nunasi Corporation’s Shares

Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, February 9th, 2015
Greg Cayen, President and COO of Nunasi Corporation (Nunasi), and David Omilgoitok, President and CEO of Kitikmeot Corporation (KC), and are pleased to announce the completion of a sale which will see all of Nunasi’s shares in Kitnuna Corporation (Kitnuna) transferred to KC. With this transaction, Kitnuna, which was previously structured as a 50/50 joint venture between the two companies, will now be 100%-owned by KC.

“Nunasi’s sale of its stake in Kitnuna is consistent with the strategic direction that our company has taken since the introduction of a new ownership structure in 2013 intended to align Nunasi’s interest with those of Nunavut’s three Regional Development Corporations,” said Nunasi President, Greg Cayen. “It makes good business sense for Kitnuna, a business intensively
focused on serving the Kitikmeot region, to fall under the full ownership of Kitikmeot Corporation, which is better positioned to provide the critical support that will allow Kitnuna to successfully pursue local and regional business opportunities.”

KC President, David Omilgoitok noted, “Kitnuna has been operating for over 30 years in Cambridge Bay and has been a very important player in our region’s economy. I am confident that with strong support from Kitikmeot Corporation, Kitnuna’s operations can expand, thereby resulting in a variety of benefits, including improved revenues, new business developments, and more employment opportunities for Inuit. I am excited by the prospects of KC’s complete ownership of Kitnuna and look forward to the exciting times ahead”.

night in Iqaluit. Our leader Greg was honored with business person of the year, a very well deserved recognition for all he has done for NCC, Nunasi, NBCC the community and Nunavut as a whole. Further to this NCC Development Limited was also honored as Business of the year. It was a very humbling night to say the least and a joy that our entire group is proud of. We have such a strong group of people in properties and developments and just one big family that all has each others back. Mary also recieved our sponsorship award and was recogonized for her 16 years of service and she has promised for many more to come. Mary has been and will be the longest serving employee for our company for many years to come. Naomi is also nearing an anniversary date and will soon be proud to say she has 10 years of service as well. We have a strong team that not only has experience but history that is so valuable in doing our day to day business. Please note that missing from the photo are Brent, Karl, Alice and Billy who
are also a very large part of our team. I was so lucky in 2005 when Brent called me to offer me a job with the company and ensured I stayed. It is too bad that Brent and the rest of the team could not be there last night to share in the excitement but they are all just as proud as we are today. On behalf of all the managers and staff at the NCC Group of companies I would like to extend a huge thanks to our board of directors and our shareholders for supporting us through all of the good and bad times, and allowing us to represent them and deliver on the vision and mission that this company was intended to do since its inception. Thank you Clarence Synard
