CALGARY, Dec. 5, 2019 /CNW/ - Tervita Corporation ("Tervita", the "Company") (TSX: TEV) announced today that the Company has applied to the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"), and the TSX has accepted, an application to amend its normal course issuer bid ("NCIB"). Previously, Tervita was approved to purchase approximately 3,115,264 common shares; the NCIB has been amended to permit Tervita to purchase up to an additional 2,762,591 common shares, for an aggregate authorization to purchase 5,877,855 common shares, or 5% of its issued and outstanding shares, under the amended NCIB (the "Amended NCIB"). The Amended NCIB will commence on December 10, 2019 and will remain active until the earlier of (i) May 6, 2020; and (ii) the date on which the maximum number of Common Shares are purchased pursuant to the NCIB.
The NCIB is consistent with management's focus on creating long-term shareholder value and allows Tervita to take advantage of opportunities that may exist where management feels the share price does not reflect the underlying value of its business. The NCIB is supported by the Company's liquidity position and does not take away from our ability to continue to fund our portfolio of capital projects.
The Company will continue their previously announced automatic share purchase plan ("ASPP") with a broker to facilitate repurchases of common shares at times when the Company ordinarily would not be active in the market due to insider trading rules and its own internal trading blackout periods. The ASPP was implemented on May 21, 2019.
