Shareholders of Dallas-based Assisted Living Concepts Inc., (ALC) approved a $278 million merger with Markham, Ontario-headquartered Extendicare Inc., the companies reported in early February.

Under the deal, Extendicare acquired all outstanding shares of ALC at $18.50 per share, for approximately $129.5 million, according to Extendicare. The Canada-based long term care facility operator also gains ALC's 177 assisted living facilities in 14 states.
