TORONTO, Aug. 30 /CNW/ - Home Capital Group Inc. (TSX: HCG) announced today that it has filed with the Toronto Stock Exchange a Notice of Intention to make a Normal Course Issuer Bid, pursuant to which Home Capital may purchase for cancellation up to 3,134,841 of its Common Shares, representing approximately 10.0% of its 31,348,410 public float of issued and outstanding Common Shares. As of August 30, 2010, there are 34,669,840 Common Shares outstanding. The average daily trading volume from February 1, 2010 to July 31, 2010 was 76,139 shares, 25% being 19,035 shares. The purchases may commence on September 1, 2010, and will terminate on August 31, 2011, or on such earlier date as Home Capital may complete its purchases pursuant to the Notice of Intention. The purchases will be made by Home Capital in accordance with the rules of the exchange and the prices that Home Capital will pay for any Common Shares will be the market price of such shares at the time of acquisition. Home Capital will make no purchases of Common Shares other than open-market purchases.

Pursuant to its Normal Course Issuer Bid for Common Shares commencing August 1, 2009, which expired July 31, 2010, Home Capital purchased 191,700 shares at an average price of $41.40 per share.

Home Capital believes that, from time to time, the market price of its Common Shares does not fully reflect the value of its business and its future business prospects. As a result, Home Capital believes that its outstanding Common Shares may represent an appropriate and desirable use of its available funds.
