The stock of Leisure Canada Inc. (CVE:LCN), (PINK:LCANF) went up on the TSX Venture Exchange (CVE) immediately after yesterday's special meeting of shareholders. It was held in Montreal and had to give an answer to several important issues.

Probably, the stir of the shares was driven by the outcome of the meeting.

360 VOX is a privately-owned enterprise having international expertise in hospitality, resort, recreational, residential and commercial real estate development. VOX has projects in Europe and China, including a 45% interest in a resort project in France.

For now, investors' reaction looks positive - on the Canadian market LCN moved up 10% yesterday. The volume was very large noting a two-month high. Over 5.1M shares changed hands during the heavy trade.  It is interesting how the stock will perform from now on, perhaps this depends on how successful the above-mentioned deal will turn out to be.

It is not the first acquisition made by Leisure Canada. In July, the corporation purchased the domain name "visitcuba.com" in an attempt to secure an online platform that would offer information and resources to tourists and business travellers to Cuba.

The managers will probably have to pay further attention to some negative figures in the company's financial statements. A net loss of $0.9M for the second quarter of 2011 hardly sounds very pleasing to investors. On the other hand, Leisure had more than $8.8M in cash at the end of this June - this suggests some financial stability, does it not?
