(TSX - ECH)
CALGARY, June 27 /CNW/ - Enerchem International Inc. ("Enerchem" or
"Corporation") announces that it will carry out a normal course issuer bid to
purchase up to 766,465 of its common shares, which represents approximately 5%
of the Corporation's 15,329,307 common shares presently outstanding. Purchases
under the normal course issuer bid will be carried out through open market
transactions through the facilities of the TSX over a period of 12 months
commencing on July 3, 2007 up until July 2, 2008. Any shares purchased by the
Corporation under the issuer bid will be cancelled and returned to treasury.
Given the current trading price of the Corporation's shares below their
book value, and the Corporation's available capital resources, the Board of
Directors believes it to be in the best interests of the Corporation and its
shareholders to repurchase some of the Corporation's outstanding shares.
