Toronto, Ontario, August 24, 2017 – ZoomerMedia Limited (TSXV:ZUM) (“ZML”) is pleased to announce that it intends to commence a normal course issuer bid (the “Bid”) to purchase up to 4.2 million of its common shares (the “Shares”), representing approximately 1.6% of the total number of issued and outstanding Shares. As at August 26, 2017, there were 267,618,297 Shares of ZML outstanding. Purchases will be made for cancellation through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) at the prevailing market price of the Shares.
ZML has received approval from the TSXV to commence the Bid on September 1, 2017. The Bid will end on the earlier of (i) August 31, 2018, (ii) when the number of common shares sought under the Bid have been obtained, and (iii) when notice is given by ZML to the TSXV terminating the Bid if ZML determines that it is appropriate to do so.
ZML believes that its Shares have been trading in a price range that does not adequately reflect the value of the Shares in relation to ZML’s assets and future prospects. As a result, ZML believes that, at appropriate times, purchases through the Bid can enhance shareholder value and represent an attractive investment and an appropriate use of ZML’s financial resources.
To the knowledge of ZML, no director or senior officer, no person acting jointly or in concert with ZML and no person holding 10% or more of any Shares of ZML currently intends to sell Shares during the course of the Bid. However, sales by such persons through the facilities of the TSXV may occur if the personal circumstances of any such person change or any such person makes a decision unrelated to the Bid. The benefits to any such person whose Shares are purchased would be the same as the benefits available to all other holders whose Shares are purchased under the Bid.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state or other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
