MONTREAL, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Dollarama Inc. (TSX: DOL) ("Dollarama" or the "Corporation") announced today that it received approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") to amend its normal course issuer bid ("NCIB") in order to increase the maximum number of common shares that may be repurchased from 3,364,523 common shares, or 5% of the public float as at May 31, 2013 (the reference date for the NCIB), to 6,729,046 common shares, or 10% of the public float. No other terms of the NCIB have been amended.
The NCIB - which began on June 17, 2013 and will end no later than June 16, 2014 - is conducted through the facilities of the TSX or alternative trading systems, if eligible, and conforms to their regulations. Purchases under the NCIB are made by means of open market transactions or such other means as the TSX or a securities regulatory authority may permit, including pre-arranged crosses, exempt offers and private agreements under an issuer bid exemption order issued by a securities regulatory authority.
Under TSX rules, Dollarama is allowed to purchase daily, through the facilities of the TSX, a maximum of 66,871 common shares representing 25% of the average daily trading volume, as calculated per the TSX rules. In addition, Dollarama may make, once per week, a block purchase of common shares not directly or indirectly owned by insiders of Dollarama, in accordance with TSX rules. All shares purchased pursuant to the NCIB are cancelled.
The automatic purchase plan agreement ("APP") entered into with a broker on June 12, 2013 also remains unchanged. The APP allows for the purchase of common shares under the NCIB at times when Dollarama ordinarily would not be active in the market due to self-imposed trading blackout periods. Outside of these pre-determined blackout periods, common shares are purchased in accordance with management's discretion.
During the period from June 17, 2013 to January 17, 2014, Dollarama purchased and cancelled a total of 3,027,218 common shares, representing 4.50% of the public float as at May 31, 2013, at a weighted average price of $77.42 per common share.
The Board of Directors of Dollarama believes that the purchase by Dollarama of its common shares represents an appropriate and desirable use of its available cash to increase shareholder value.
