RETRANSMISSION – Captor Capital Announces Share Buyback Program
Company intends to purchase up to $5 million in shares
TORONTO, Dec. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Captor Capital Corp. (“Captor” or the “Company”) (CSE: CPTR; FRANKFURT: NMV; STUTTGART: NMVA; USOTC: NWURF), a cannabis-focused investment company, announced today its intention to commence a normal course issuer bid (“NCIB” or the “Bid“) to expend up to an aggregate of CDN $5 million on the purchase of common shares of the Company (the “Shares“). The actual number of Shares that may be purchased under the Bid, the value of the consideration per Share, and the exact timing of any such purchases will be determined by the Company and will depend on, among other things, future market conditions.
“Captor is commencing the Bid because it believes that the market price of its Shares does not reflect the underlying value of the Company’s business and future prospects,” said Captor Capital CEO, John Zorbas. “In consideration of this fact, the Company believes the repurchase of its Shares for cancellation would be in the best interests of its shareholders.”
Pursuant to the NCIB, the Company may, if considered advisable, purchase the Shares through the facilities of the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE“) and/or alternative trading systems, from time to time over the next 12 months, and shall not, in any event, exceed 5% of the issued Shares. As of December 17 2018, the Company had 39,353,006 Shares issued and outstanding. Pursuant to the NCIB, the Company may acquire up to 1,967,650 Shares, representing 5% of its issued and outstanding Shares. The Company has appointed Richardson-GMP to coordinate and facilitate its NCIB purchases. Purchases are expected to commence through the CSE and/or alternative trading systems on or about December 27, 2018 and will conclude on the earlier of the date on which purchases under the bid have been completed or December 26, 2019. All Shares purchased by the Company will be cancelled.
