According to the companies, a formal agreement will be entered into on Jan. 15, 2007, setting out the terms and conditions of the transaction. Shear Wind and Vindt expect the agreement will be finalized at the end of January, although it is subject to a number of conditions, including approval from Vindt's shareholders.
