GUELPH, ON, Feb. 7 /CNW/ - ENPAR Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: ENP) ("ENPAR" or the "Company") announces that the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") has accepted a notice filed by the Company stating its intention to initiate a Normal Course Issuer Bid ("NCIB").

The notice provides that ENPAR may purchase for cancellation up to 2,990,528 of its common shares, representing approximately 5% of the 59,810,578 issued and outstanding common shares of the Company. Pursuant to the NCIB, ENPAR will pay the market price for any common shares at the time of purchase during the 12 month period commencing February 7, 2011 and ending February 6, 2012. All purchases will be made through the TSX Venture Exchange by Foster & Associates, a Toronto brokerage firm, acting as an independent trustee on behalf of ENPAR 

The Company is making the NCIB as it is of the view that the common shares have been trading at a range that does not adequately reflect their value in relation to the Company's assets and growth prospects. To the extent that the Company purchases for cancellation such common shares in accordance with the NCIB, 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 purchased and cancelled 10,000 common shares in 2010 pursuant to a NCIB which terminated on April 26, 2010.
