Sabio Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid
TSX Venture Exchange accepts notice by Sabio of its intention to buy back its shares
TORONTO, March 17, 2023 /CNW/ -- Sabio Holdings Inc. (TSXV:SBIO, OTCQX: SABOF) ("Sabio" or the "Company"), a leading provider of connected TV ("CTV") and over-the-top ("OTT") advertising platforms validated by performance, is pleased to announce that the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") has accepted a notice filed by the Company of its intention to make a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the "Bid") to be transacted through the facilities of the Exchange.
The board of directors of the Company (the "Board") believes that the recent market prices of the Company's common shares (the "Shares") do not properly reflect the underlying value of such Shares. As a result, depending upon future price movements and other factors, the Board believes that the purchase of the Shares would be a desirable use of corporate funds in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. Furthermore, the purchases are expected to benefit all persons who continue to hold Shares by increasing their equity interest in the Company if the repurchased Shares are cancelled.
The notice provides that the Company may, during the 12-month period commencing March 22, 2023 and ending March 21, 2024, purchase up to 754,571 Shares in total, being 5% of the total number of 15,091,425 Shares outstanding as at February 15, 2023. The Company also has 31,755,764 issued and outstanding convertible restricted voting shares.
The price which the Company will pay for any such Shares will be the prevailing market price at the time of acquisition. The actual number of Shares which may be purchased pursuant to the Bid and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by management of the Company. Purchases under the Bid will be made from time to time by Beacon Securities Ltd. on behalf of the Company.
All Share purchases will be made on the open market through the facilities of the Exchange and will be purchased for cancellation. The funding for any purchase pursuant to the Bid will be financed out of the working capital of the Company. To the knowledge of the Company, no director, senior officer or other insider of the Company or any of their associaes currently intends to sell any common shares under this Bid, however sales by such persons through the facilities of the Exchange or any other available market or alternative trading system may occur if the personal circumstances of any such persons changes or if any such persons make a decision unrelated to these normal course purchases. The benefits to any such person whose Shares are purchased would be the same as the benefits available to all other holders whose Shares are purchased.
