Just Energy Group Inc. Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid-6.0% Convertible Subordinated Debentures Due June 30, 2017

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/13/14 -- Just Energy Group Inc. ("Just Energy") (NYSE: JE)(TSX: JE), announced today that it intends to renew its normal course issuer bid ("NCIB") for its outstanding 6% convertible extendible unsecured subordinated debentures due June 30, 2017 (the "Debentures") (TSX: JE.DB). All Debentures purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled. As of March 12, 2014 $330,000,000 principal amount of the Debentures were outstanding.

Under the NCIB, Just Energy may purchase the Debentures, representing 10% of the public float as at March 7th, 2014, up to the following limits:


                                   Limit on Purchases (Principal Amount)
                              ----------------------------------------------
                                  Total Limit (1)        Daily Limit (2)
                              ----------------------  ----------------------
6% $330 Million Debentures          $33,000,000              $105,465

Notes:

  1.  Represents 10% of the public float.
  2.  The ADTV for the 6% $330 Million Debenture is $421,861.

Just Energy believes that the Debentures may trade in a range that may not fully reflect their value. As a result, Just Energy believes that the purchase of the Debentures from time to time can be undertaken at prices that make the acquisition of such securities an appropriate use of Just Energy's available funds. In addition, purchases under the NCIB may increase the liquidity of the Debentures. Just Energy did not make any purchases of Debentures under the previous NCIB as, while purchases would have been an appropriate use of Just Energy's funds, Just Energy alternatively allocated funds to support other corporate purposes including customer growth.

Just Energy intends to commence the NCIB on March 17, 2014. The NCIB will expire on March 16, 2015 or such earlier date as Just Energy completes its purchases pursuant to the NCIB. All purchases made under the NCIB will be made through the facilities of the TSX or other Canadian marketplaces and in accordance with the rules of the TSX at market prices prevailing at the time of purchase. The actual amount of Debentures that may be purchased under the NCIB is subject to, and cannot exceed the limits referred to above. The timing of such purchases will be determined by Just Energy.
