TORONTO, April 23 /CNW/ - ENPAR Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: ENP) ("ENPAR"
or the "Company") announced today that the TSX Venture Exchange (the
"Exchange") has accepted a notice filed by the Company of its intention to
make a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the "Bid").
The notice provides that ENPAR may, during the 12 month period commencing
April 27, 2009 and ending April 26, 2010, purchase for cancellation up to
2,704,600 of its common shares, representing approximately 5% of the issued
and outstanding common shares of the Company. The price which ENPAR will pay
for any common shares under the Bid will be the market price at the time of
purchase. The purchases will be made through the facilities of the TSX Venture
Exchange. The brokerage firm conducting the Bid on behalf of ENPAR is Foster &
The Company is making the Bid as it is of the view that the Company's
common shares have been trading at a range that does not adequately reflect
their value in relation to the Company's financial performance and growth
prospects. To the extent that the Company purchases for cancellation such
common shares in accordance with the Bid, the holdings of remaining
shareholders would represent an increased proportion of the common shares
outstanding and, all other things remaining equal, are expected to result in
an increased net asset value per common share.
ENPAR is a "Technology Company" applying its patented and proprietary
