Haemacure sale of assets to Angiotech clears another hurdle

March 22 (Reuters) - Haemacure Corp (HAEFQ.PK) said it received permission from the Superior Court of the Province of Quebec to sell its assets to Angiotech Pharmaceuticals Inc (ANP.TO), a secured creditor of Haemacure.
The Canada-based biotherapeutic company said the United States Bankruptcy Court had previously authorized the sale to Angiotech of the assets of Haemacure's U.S. subsidiary.
Haemacure also said it obtained a second extension, until April 19, within which to make a proposal to its creditors.
The extension will also allow Haemacure and Angiotech to complete the documentation required for the closing of the asset-sale transactions in Canada and the United States. The closings are expected to be held prior to the new expiry date of April 19.
