Cash Store Financial Announces Intention to Commence a Normal Course Issuer Bid



    EDMONTON, June 30 /CNW/ - The Cash Store Financial Services Inc. ("Cash
Store Financial") has filed with the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") a notice
of its intention to make a normal course issuer bid (the "NCIB") for its
common shares (the "Common Shares") through the facilities of the TSX (the
"Notice").
    The Notice provides that Cash Store Financial intends, during a
twelve-month period commencing on July 3, 2009 ending July 2, 2010, following
TSX approval, to purchase on the TSX up to 1,063,295 Common Shares, being
approximately 10% of the "public float" of Common Shares of Cash Store
Financial. As at June 26, 2008, there were 16,927,482 Common Shares issued and
outstanding. The price that Cash Store Financial will pay for any such Common
Shares will be the market price at the time of acquisition and any Common
Shares purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled. The actual number of Common
Shares that may be purchased and the timing of any such purchases will be
determined by Cash Store Financial, subject to price, trading volume, and
other market considerations. Daily purchases will be limited to 4,002 Common
Shares or approximately 25% of the average daily trading volume for the six
full calendar months prior to June 24, 2008, other than block purchases. Cash
Store Financial has repurchased 1,218,470 Common Shares in the previous 12
months at a weighted average cost $5.83.
    Cash Store Financial believes that, at current market prices and at
certain times throughout the duration of the NCIB, the purchase of its Common
Shares will contribute to enhancing shareholder value.
