(TSX: DGI.UN) announced today that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") has
accepted its notice of intention to conduct a normal course issuer bid to
enable it to purchase, through the facilities of the TSX, up to $2,833,200
aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 6.75% extendible convertible
unsecured subordinated debentures ("Debentures"), representing 10% of the
public float of Debentures outstanding as of February 3, 2009, pursuant to TSX
rules and policies.
    The average daily trading volume of the Debentures for the six calendar
months preceding January 30, 2009 represents $42,168.00 aggregate principal
amount of Debentures. In accordance with the TSX Staff Notice 2008-005 dated
November 3, 2008, until March 31, 2009 (unless extended), the maximum daily
purchase of Debentures permitted under the normal course issuer bid is the
greater of (i) 50% of the average daily trading volume of Debentures,
representing $21,084.00 principal amount of Debentures, and (ii) one
Debenture. Thereafter, the maximum daily purchase will be the greater of (i)
25% of the average daily trading volume of Debentures, representing $10,542.00
principal amount of Debentures, and (ii) one Debenture.
    Purchases under the bid may commence on February 18, 2009 and will
terminate on the earlier of February 17, 2010, the date Data completes its
purchases pursuant to the notice of intention to make a normal course issuer
bid filed with the TSX and the date of notice by Data of termination of the
bid. Purchases will be made on the open market by Data through the facilities
