STRATEGIC METALS LTD. ANNOUNCES NEW NORMAL COURSE ISSUER BID TO SUCCEED THE NORMAL COURSE ISSUER BID WHICH WILL EXPIRE ON DECEMBER 2, 2019
Strategic Metals Ltd. is making a new normal course issuer bid pursuant to the provisions of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.6, to succeed its existing normal course issuer bid, as accepted by the TSX Venture Exchange on Nov. 28, 2018.
Strategic has purchased no shares under the old bid, which will expire on Dec. 2, 2019. The new bid will consist of the acquisition by Strategic of up to 6.6 million common shares of its capital stock, representing approximately 10 per cent of the public float of 66,360,841 common shares upon the date of commencement of the new bid. (There are currently 96,568,357 common shares of Strategic issued and outstanding.) The new bid will commence on Dec. 3, 2019, and will expire on Dec. 2, 2020.
Strategic is making the new bid, to succeed the old bid (which was limited to an aggregate of 5.9 million common shares), because it is of the opinion that fluctuating global market conditions periodically (and currently) may result in unwarranted reductions in Strategic's share price that do not reflect the underlying value of its assets. Strategic will utilize unallocated cash resources to effect purchases under the new bid with a view to capitalizing on these potential price weaknesses. Shares purchased under the new bid will be made at management's discretion based on market conditions, and will be returned to Strategic's treasury for cancellation.
The new bid will be conducted on behalf of Strategic by PI Financial Corp., of Suite 1900, 666 Burrard St., Vancouver, B.C.
We seek Safe Harbor.
