Algoma Central Corporation Announces Renewal of Normal Course Issuer BidSource: Business Wire
Algoma’s Board of Directors believes that the market price of Algoma’s common shares (“Shares”), from time to time, may not reflect the inherent value of the Company and purchases of Shares pursuant to the NCIB may represent an appropriate and desirable use of funds. Any purchases made under the NCIB will be made by Algoma subject to favourable market conditions at the prevailing market price at the time of acquisition through the facilities of the TSX and/or alternative Canadian trading systems.
Pursuant to the notice, during the twelve month period commencing
In conjunction the renewal of the NCIB, Algoma has entered into a new automatic share purchase plan (the “ASPP”) with a designated broker to allow for the purchase of its Shares under the NCIB at times when Algoma 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, Algoma may, but is not required to, instruct its designated broker to make purchases of 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 Algoma 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, Shares will continue to be purchasable by Algoma at its discretion under its NCIB.
The ASPP will commence on the Company’s behalf during the quarterly
blackout period of the Company for its first quarter 2019 results
The Company’s previous NCIB commenced on
Although Algoma intends to purchase Shares under its NCIB there can be no assurances that any such purchases will be completed.
