TORONTO, Nov. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - SOL Global Investments Corp. ("SOL Global" or the "Company") (CSE: SOL) (OTCPK: SOLCF) (Frankfurt: 9SB), announced its intention to commence a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB"), under which the Company may purchase up to 2,731,462 of the Company's common shares, representing approximately 5% of its issued and outstanding common shares (the "Shares"). The Company is commencing the NCIB because it believes that, from time to time, the market price of its Shares may not fully reflect the underlying value of the Company's business and future prospects. SOL Global believes that, at such times, the repurchase of its Shares for cancellation represents an appropriate use of the Company's financial resources and will enhance shareholder value.
The NCIB is expected to commence immediately on November 1, 2019 and terminate on November 1, 2020. All Shares purchased under the NCIB will be purchased on the open market through the facilities of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "CSE"). All purchases made under the NCIB will be at the prevailing CSE market price for the Shares at the time of purchase. Shares acquired by the Company under the NCIB are being purchased for cancellation.
