VANCOUVER and TORONTO, Dec. 4, 2019 /CNW/ - Converge Technology Solutions Corp. ("Converge" or the "Company") (TSXV: CTS) (FSE:0ZB) (OTCQX:CTSDF) announces that it has filed a Notice of Intention to Make a Normal Course Issuer Bid with the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV"), the implementation of which remains subject to TSXV approval. Pursuant to the proposed normal course issuer bid ("NCIB"), Converge proposes to purchase for cancellation through the facilities of the TSXV and/or permitted alternative trading systems, from time to time over the next 12 months, up to an aggregate of 4,025,120 of its issued and outstanding common shares (each, a "Common Share"), being 5% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares as of December 3, 2019.
The NCIB will commence three trading days after Converge receives TSXV approval and will remain in effect until the earlier of: (i) the date that is 12 months following commencement of the NCIB, (ii) the date upon which Converge acquires the maximum number of Common Shares permitted under the NCIB, or (iii) the date upon which Converge provides written notice of termination of the NCIB to the TSXV. Converge may not purchase more than 2% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares during any 30-day period, which as at December 3, 2019 represented 1,610,048 Common Shares.
Purchases of Common Shares under the NCIB will be made by Hampton Securities ("Hampton") in accordance with the applicable policies of the TSXV at the prevailing market price of such Common Shares at the time of purchase. All Common Shares acquired by the Company under the NCIB will be cancelled. The Company is implementing the NCIB because it believes that, from time to time, the market prices of its common shares may not fully reflect the underlying value of the Company's business and its future business prospects. Such purchases will be in the best interests of the Company and will be a desirable use of corporate funds.
