Q4 Inc. Announces TSX Acceptance of Normal Course Issuer Bid

Share

Q4 Inc. (TSX:QFOR), a leading capital markets communications platform, announced today that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) has accepted the Company’s notice of intention to conduct a normal course issuer bid (“NCIB”).

Under the NCIB program, the Company is authorized to purchase up to 2,519,889 of its common shares, which represents 10% of the public float as of March 15, 2022. As of March 15, 2022, the Company had 39,625,596 common shares issued and outstanding and a public float of 25,198,894 common shares. Purchases will be made through normal course purchases effected through the facilities of the TSX and/or alternative Canadian trading systems, or such other means as may be permitted by the Ontario Securities Commission or Canadian Securities Administrators. Pursuant to the NCIB, the Company may acquire, from time to time, up to 10,421 common shares per day (which is equal to 25% of 41,685 common shares, being the average daily trading volume for the Company’s common shares for the period ended February 28, 2022), subject to certain exceptions, including block purchase exceptions. All shares purchased by the Company under the NCIB will be cancelled. Purchases may commence on March 25, 2022 and will conclude on the earlier of the date on which the Company has purchased the maximum number of common shares under the NCIB and March 24, 2023.

In deciding to establish the NCIB, the Company believes that the market price of the common shares may not adequately reflect their value and that current market conditions provide opportunities for the Company to acquire common shares at attractive prices. In the Company’s view, having the option to opportunistically repurchase common shares could be an effective use of its cash resources and could be in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. It would both enhance liquidity for shareholders seeking to sell, and provide an increase in the proportionate interests of shareholders wishing to maintain their positions.

Purchases will be made by the Company in accordance with the requirements of the TSX and the price which the Company will pay for any such common shares will be the market price of any such common shares at the time of acquisition, or such other price as may be permitted by the TSX.

In connection with the NCIB program, the Company has entered into an automatic repurchase plan with its designated broker to allow for purchases of its common shares during certain pre-determined black-out periods, subject to certain parameters as to price and number of shares. Outside of these pre-determined black-out periods, shares will be repurchased in accordance with management’s discretion, subject to applicable law.
