Brampton Brick Limited Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

BRAMPTON, Ontario, Sept. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brampton Brick Limited (“BBL” or the “Company”) (TSX: BBL.A) announced today that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “Exchange”) has accepted a notice filed by BBL of its intention to make a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the ”Bid”).

The notice provides that, during the 12 month period commencing September 9, 2019 and ending September 8, 2020, BBL may purchase on the Exchange up to 462,871 Class A Subordinate Voting shares in total, being 5% of the total number of Class A Subordinate Voting shares outstanding as of August 31, 2019, the date of the notice of the Bid. The price which BBL will pay for any such shares will be the market price at the time of acquisition. The actual number of Class A Subordinate Voting shares which may be purchased pursuant to the Bid and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by management of BBL. As at August 31, 2019 there were 9,257,423 Class A Subordinate Voting shares and 1,738,631 Class B Multiple Voting shares outstanding. The average daily trading volume of Class A Subordinate Voting shares ("ADTV") for the most recently completed six month ended August 31, 2019 is 1,313. The maximum number of Class A Subordinate Voting shares that may be purchased in one day pursuant to the Bid is the greater of 1,000 and 25% of ADTV; as such, given that the ADTV is 1,313, such daily maximum under the Bid will be 1,000. All Class A Subordinate Voting share purchases will be made through the facilities of the TSX on the open market or by way of block purchases effected in accordance with the requirements of the TSX, and will be purchased for cancellation.

BBL believes that its Class A Subordinate Voting shares have been trading in a price range which does not adequately reflect the value of such shares in relation to the business of BBL and its future business prospects. As a result, depending upon future price movements and other factors, BBL believes that its outstanding Class A Subordinate Voting shares may represent an attractive investment to BBL. Furthermore, the purchases are expected to benefit all persons who continue to hold Class A Subordinate Voting shares by increasing their equity interest in BBL.

Under the Company’s previous Bid that will expire on September 6, 2019, BBL was permitted to purchase up to 461,431 Class A Subordinate Voting Shares, and as at September 1, 2019, BBL had purchased 25,100 Class A Subordinate Voting Shares at a weighted average price of $7.22 per share.
