Solium Executive Adopts Automatic Securities Disposition Plan

CALGARY, June 23, 2014 /CNW/ - Solium Capital Inc. ("Solium" or the "Company") (TSX: SUM) today announced that Marcos Lopez, Managing Director of Solium, adopted an automatic securities disposition plan ("ASDP") in accordance with applicable Canadian provincial securities legislation, including the guidance under Ontario Securities Commission's Staff Notice 55-701 ("Canadian Legislation"). Generally, Canadian Legislation permits an insider to adopt a written ASDP to sell shares through an independent broker in accordance with a pre-arranged set of instructions, regardless of any subsequent material non-public information the insider may receive, as long as the ASDP satisfies certain requirements. In accordance with Canadian Legislation, sales of shares under the ASDP will be effected by an independent securities broker in accordance with the trading parameters and other instructions set out in the ASDP.

The objective of the ASDP is to sell 96,000 common shares of Solium. Under Mr. Lopez's previous ASDP adopted in September 2013, the objective had been to sell 300,000 common shares of which 187,555 had been sold by the date of the automatic termination of that plan in December 2013, followed by 16,445 shares sold in the open market. The objective of the current plan is to sell the remaining 96,000 shares contemplated by the original plan. These shares represent approximately 5.2% of Mr. Lopez's total current shareholdings in Solium. Mr Lopez wishes to sell these shares in order to further diversify his portfolio in accordance with standard financial planning practices.

Mr. Lopez will not exercise any further discretion or influence over how dispositions will occur under his ASDP, and the broker administering his ASDP is not permitted to consult with him regarding any such dispositions. In addition, Mr. Lopez is subject to restrictions on his ability to modify, suspend or terminate his participation in the ASDP. In accordance with best practices, the ASDP includes a waiting period of 30 days between the date of adoption of the ASDP and the date that the first disposition can be made under the ASDP.

Transactions under the ASDPs will be reported on SEDI at www.sedi.ca in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws. Each such filing will bear annotation to advise readers that the dispositions relate to an ASDP.

In entering into the ASDPs with Mr. Lopez, Solium recognizes that insiders may have reasons unrelated to their assessment of the Company or its prospects in deciding to sell shares of the Company. Solium also recognizes that many of its officers have a substantial portion of their personal net worth represented by shares of the Company and that such individuals are subject to lengthy restrictions on their ability to effect trades in Solium's shares because of trading blackouts imposed under the Company's trading policy. The Company's Code of Conduct permits the trading of securities pursuant to an automatic securities disposition or purchase plan established in accordance with applicable securities legislation and the Company's policies. Solium also requires that all ASDPs be pre-cleared by the Governance and Human Resources Committee of Solium's Board of Directors (the "Committee"), which is comprised of independent directors. In addition to applicable securities legislation and the Code of Conduct, the Committee will consider the best practices which exist at the time an insider requests to adopt an ASDP, and may impose such requirements as it determines are appropriate or necessary. The Committee believes that such plans provide an orderly method for insiders to diversify their portfolio. Solium anticipates that other insiders of the Company may in the future wish to adopt automatic securities disposition or purchase plans. Insiders of the Company that adopt such a plan will disclose the establishment of the plan in insider reports filed in accordance with applicable securities laws and Solium may from time to time disclose the adoption of such plans in the future.
