NANAIMO, BC, Oct. 28, 2021 /CNW/ - Atlas Engineered Products ("Atlas", "AEP" or the "Company") (TSXV: AEP) (OTC-PINK: APEUF) announced today that it has received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") to implement a normal course issuer bid (the "Bid") to be transacted through the facilities of the TSXV.
The Bid will commence on November 3, 2021 and end on November 3, 2022 or such earlier date as AEP may complete its purchases as set forth in its notice filed with the TSXV. Under the Bid, AEP may purchase up to 2,886,286 common shares of the Company, representing up to 5% of the total number of common shares outstanding as of October 28, 2021. The price that AEP will pay for Common Shares purchased under the Bid will be the prevailing market price at the time of acquisition. The actual number of Common Shares purchased under the Bid, and the timing of such purchases will be determined by management of AEP. AEP has engaged Canaccord Genuity Corp. ("Canaccord") to effect purchases under the Bid on AEP's behalf. AEP may enter into a pre-defined automatic securities purchase plan with Canaccord to allow for the repurchase of Common Shares at a time when the Company would ordinarily not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackouts, insider trading rules or otherwise. Any such plans will be adopted in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
All purchases of Common Shares will be made on the open market through the facilities of the TSXV and will be purchased for cancellation.
AEP's board of directors believes that the current market price for the Company's common shares do not currently reflect the underlying value of the Company. As a result, depending on future price movements and other factors, AEP's board of directors believes that the purchase of the shares is an appropriate use of AEP's funds and in the best interests of AEP's shareholders.
