VANCOUVER, Dec. 8, 2014 /CNW/ - TAG Oil Ltd. (TSX: TAO) and (OTCQX: TAOIF), reports that subject to the acceptance of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") the Company intends to purchase and cancel up to 5,885,051 of its common shares. TAG has appointed Dundee Goodman Private Wealth to conduct the purchases through the facilities of the TSX.
TAG Oil believes that its share price does not reflect the underlying value of the Company, and that purchasing shares for cancellation will be advantageous to the Company and its shareholders.

In addition, TAG Oil will be allowed to make, once per calendar week, a block purchase (as such term is defined in the TSX Company Manual) of common shares not directly or indirectly owned by insiders of TAG Oil that exceeds the daily repurchase restriction, in accordance with TSX policies.
Over the past twelve months TAG has purchased and cancelled 1,977,200 of its common shares at an average weighted purchase price of CDN$2.10 per common share leaving TAG with 62,597,852 common shares issued and outstanding.
