Rogers keeps Voting Control within the Family

rogerslogoTed Rogers built  a family business from the ground up (with inspiration from his father) and it looks like it’s staying within the family.

Rogers issued a statement today saying that “Prior to his death earlier this month, Edward S. “Ted” Rogers controlled Rogers Communications Inc. through his ownership of voting shares of a private holding company. RCI has been informed that under Mr. Rogers’ estate arrangements, those voting shares, and consequently voting control of RCI and its subsidiaries, passed to the Rogers Control Trust, a trust of which the trust company subsidiary of a Canadian chartered bank is Trustee and members of the family of the late Mr. Rogers are beneficiaries. Private Rogers family holding companies controlled by the Rogers Control Trust together own approximately 90.9% of the Class A voting shares of RCI and 7.5% of the Class B non voting shares.
