TORONTO, Jan. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Norvista Capital Corporation. (“Norvista” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:NVV) announces today that it has received approval to undertake, at the Company’s discretion, a normal course issuer bid program to purchase up to 3,568,075 of its common shares (the “Bid”).
The Company is commencing the Bid because it believes that from time to time the market price of its common shares may not fully reflect the underlying value of the Company’s business, and that the repurchase of its common shares at those times would be in the best interests of its shareholders.
As of the date hereof, the Company has 71,361,501 common shares issued and outstanding. The maximum number of common shares that may be purchased by the Company under the Bid represents approximately 5% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares. The Company received acceptance from the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) to commence the Bid on January 17, 2018. The Bid will terminate on January 17, 2019, or on an earlier date in the event that the maximum number of common shares sought in the Bid has been repurchased. The Company reserves the right to terminate the Bid at any time.
Purchases pursuant to the Bid are expected to be made through the facilities of the TSXV, or such other permitted means (including through alternative trading systems in Canada), at prevailing market prices or as otherwise permitted.
The Company has engaged Canaccord Genuity Corp. to act as the broker through which the Bid will be conducted.
Norvista is a resource based merchant bank with an investment portfolio of four core investments located in Canada, the United States and Mexico.
