Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 9, 2023) - Dexterra Group Inc. (TSX: DXT) ("Dexterra") is pleased to announce that the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") has approved the notice of its intention to make a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB").
Pursuant to the terms of the NCIB, commencing on May 15, 2023 and expiring on May 14, 2024, Dexterra may purchase its own common shares for cancellation through the facilities of the TSX or alternative Canadian trading systems, in accordance with the applicable requirements, and as otherwise permitted under applicable securities laws. The maximum number of common shares, which may be purchased by Dexterra during the NCIB, will not exceed 1,300,000 common shares being approximately 2% of 65,241,628 (representing the number of issued and outstanding common shares as of April 28, 2023). The average daily trading volume (the "ADTV") of the common shares on the TSX for the six-month period ended April 30, 2023 was 24,771 common shares. Under the rules of the TSX, Dexterra is entitled to repurchase during the same trading day on the TSX up to 25% of the ADTV of the common shares, being 6,192 common shares, except where such purchases are made in accordance with the "block purchase" exemption under applicable TSX policy.
In addition to providing shareholders liquidity, Dexterra believes that the common shares have been trading in a price range that does not adequately reflect their value in relation to Dexterra's business and its future prospects. Dexterra further believes that the purchase of the common shares through the NCIB, at appropriate times, can constitute an attractive investment.
Dexterra also announces that it has entered into an automatic share purchase plan (the "ASPP") with a designated broker to allow for the purchase of its common shares under its NCIB at times when Dexterra normally would not be active in the market due to applicable regulatory restrictions or internal trading black-out periods. Before the commencement of any particular internal trading black-out period, Dexterra may, but is not required to, instruct its designated broker to make purchases of the common shares under the NCIB during the ensuing black-out period in accordance with the terms of the ASPP. Such purchases will be determined by the broker in its sole discretion based on parameters established by Dexterra prior to commencement of the applicable black-out period in accordance with the terms of the ASPP and applicable TSX rules. Outside of these black-out periods, common shares will be purchasable by Dexterra at its discretion under its NCIB.
The NCIB and ASPP is effective as of May 15, 2023 and will terminate on the earliest of the date on which: (a) the maximum annual purchase limit under the NCIB has been reached; (b) the NCIB expires; or (c) Dexterra terminates the ASPP in accordance with its terms. The ASPP constitutes an "automatic securities purchase plan" under applicable Canadian securities laws.
