OFFICIAL NOTICE

VOODOO TECHNOLOGIES INC & GESTION VOODOO INC. IN BANKRUPTCY

Good morning!

I am Rock Fournier, speaking for Fournier Auctioneers. We are auctioneers & liquidators in business for 48 years now, going back to 1961 when my late father Gilles Fournier founded the company.

Following a legal call for tenders by Demers Beaulne Inc. trustees in bankruptcy in Montreal, we have been awarded ALL VOODOO'S ASSETS of the Montreal factory located at 3700, St-Patrick St. Door #23. EVERYTHING WILL BE ABSOLUTELY LIQUIDATED within the next 2 weeks

Inventory includes:
  • 300 finished kayaks (sea, recreational, white water, "sit ons" & demos etc.)
  • 175 hulls (basics out of the moulds, no trimmings, partly assembled, or used )
  • 1000 paddles (sea, white water, 1pc, 2pc, alum., fiber, etc.)
  • 200,000.$ (retail value) (seats, skirts, covers, life vests, parts & components)

All shop tools machinery & equipment featuring:
  • The NW gas fired rotation moulding oven
  • Yale fork lift truck - propane 5000lb
  • Pallet racking
  • Storage trailers & containers
  • All office equipment & computers

We have taken possession of the premises a couple of days ago and we are in the process of cleaning & organizing the plant, completing precise inventory count & labelling of finished boats, work in process & components.

We shall be advertising very shortly this absolute public sale.

All are welcome: users, paddlers, associations, retailers, builders etc.

Meanwhile we could perhaps use the services of former employees to help us set up & sell these stocks, since knowledge of plant operations would be useful.

We shall indicate daily updates on our website regarding exact quantities & models, photos etc. at www.groupefournier.com (click on Voodoo Kayaks)

THE LIQUIDATION SHALL BE CONDUCTED DIRECTLY AT THE MONTREAL PLANT FACILITY AT: 3700 ST-PATRICK, DOOR #23, MONTREAL
Starting Thursday March 19th, 9:00 a.m., regular stores hours, including Saturday & Sunday

Cash & carry
"First come, first serve!"

Our offices are in Laval: Fournier Encanteurs, Auctioneers
2380, Montée Masson, Laval, (Quebec) H7E 4P2
tel. : 450 666-1251
Rock Fournier, president

P.S. 1 I return all my calls
P.S. 2 It is said that "Riot" has survived and operates overseas, that may be.

It's not our concern.
We are not involved.
We are dealing with the actual - physical
Voodoo assets in Montreal

All previous Voodoo history: (corporations, brand names, relocation, creditors etc.) is unknown to us. We are distant of all preceeding activities, as we come into the picture after the bankruptcy

P.S. 3 I hope this sheds some light on the forum discussions I have read lately

I wish you well

Rock Fournier
